This is the out-of-the-way, cumbersome achievement of the game, in my opinion. The Black Knight shows up a while into the match and if you're speedrunning the wins with a second controller, you may never see the Knight at all.

The Knight shows up when a player has captured three to five (the number varies randomly) control points, which are the circles in the middle that give you powerups. You collect the White Knight Shield (for the other achievement) as a token that's lying on the ground after the Black Knight spawns, and you banish the Black Knight by capturing three control points after he spawns. You capture control points by guiding your minions to them with the right stick. Remember to move enemy minions off the control points at the start of the match, if you're playing against multiple controllers.

Keep in mind that you don't have to stand on the control point to fully capture it. Once a powerup starts glowing green, or a Knight control point's progress bar starts receding, you can move your minions to another point and start capturing it.

The easiest way to grind this one out:
4 player FFA (4 controllers, otherwise play 1 on 1 with 2 controllers)
Fireballs: 1

Just hold onto the fireball as your minions capture control points and summon/banish the Black Knight. As long as you hold the fireball, you can essentially milk Knights forever using this method, though I would recommend finishing off the match every 10 Knights or so to make sure it saves. The achievement pops mid-game.
