The Cavalier (ソシアルナイト Social Knight) is a basic class of soldiers fighting on horseback. Cavaliers have appeared in every Fire Emblem series game to date except for Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, in which the class is instead divided into four separate weapon-specialist classes: Sword Knight, Lance Knight, Axe Knight and Bow Knight.

Cavaliers are regularly described by the games as a balanced class, designed with all of its stats around the average (with the exception of magic and resistance). They strike a solid balance of offence, defense and agility, which when combined with their excellent movement allow them to perform well at the front lines of battle. Rare for a basic class, they normally have access to both swords and lances (the exception being Gaiden), allowing them greater diversity in combat. Mystery of the Emblem and Thracia 776 grant Cavaliers the ability to dismount, required to enable them to operate indoors; this forces them to use only swords and nullifies effective damage against them.

In all appearances, Cavaliers promote to the Paladin class; Gaiden adds a third-tier class to their promotion line, the Gold Knight, while The Sacred Stones and Awakening allows them to choose between promoting to Paladin and Great Knight.
