The Dark Knight (Japanese: ダークナイト Dark Knight) is an advanced mounted class debuting in Fire Emblem: Awakening. It is one of the class change options available to Mages and Dark Mages, and functions very similarly to the Mage Knight class of the Jugdral games as a mixed class with access to both physical weapons and magic. Its physical and magical offensive stats are roughly balanced, leaning slightly more toward magic than strength, and it has decent defensive stats with its defense being its highest stat overall.
