Just wondering how players in certain games can be knocked down or knocked back if the general practice is to use kinematic bodies for player sprites. Is there a built in way to handle such a trick in Godot, or do I have to create my own solution?

KinematicBodies are not affected by other physic bodies, it'll just try to free itself from collision and stop.

If you need to apply forces to it, use a RigidBody node.
