Top best answers to the question «What piece cannot check a king in chess»

A king cannot itself directly check the opposing king, since this would place the first king in check as well. A move of the king could expose the opposing king to a discovered check by another piece, however. In informal games, it is common to announce "check" when making a move that puts the opponent's king in check.
