The Paladin (パラディン Paladin) is an advanced mounted class which debuted in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and is present in almost all subsequent games. It is conventionally the promoted form of the Cavalier, with the sole exception of Radiant Dawn, in which it does not exist itself and is instead divided into the separate weapon-specialist Blade Paladin, Lance Paladin, Axe Paladin, and Bow Paladin classes.

Throughout the course of the Fire Emblem series, the weapons available to Paladins have varied and the class has had access to all four physical weapon types at some point, but the use of swords and lances is the most consistent weapon setup for the class. Paladins are a potent class with strong stats across the board, including uniquely high Resistance by the standards of physical units. Regularly described as a balanced class, they possess good defensive endurance, offensive power, and Skill and Speed in equal measure. Additionally, as an advanced mounted class they possess high Movement.

In the majority of appearances, Cavaliers class change to Paladin, though variations on the class's class-change lineage exist. Gaiden has Cavaliers promote to Paladin, then promote again to Gold Knight. In Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, Troubadours also promote to Paladin and have female-exclusive access to staves as well as swords and lances. The Sacred Stones and Awakening provide Cavaliers with the choice between promoting to Paladin or Great Knight. In Path of Radiance, the four weapon-specific mounted classes - Sword Knight, Lance Knight, Axe Knight and Bow Knight - all promote to Paladin, and when doing so the player is allowed to choose a new secondary weapon type to be gained by the individual unit.

  • Note: For Path of Radiance, the base weapons depend on the original class (Sword Knight, Lance Knight, Axe Knight, or Bow Knight); upon promotion to Paladin, the player is offered a choice of secondary weapon out of the other three weapon types. The original primary weapon's base rank is C; the base rank of the new secondary weapon chosen is E.
