The Black Knight (Japanese: 漆黒の騎士ダークナイト Dark Knight) is a third-tier advanced infantry class which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. As its name suggests, this class is exclusive to the Black Knight in both his brief playable roles and his appearances as a boss, whereas in the preceding game, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, he was simply a General. It is a modified, more powerful version of the Marshall class available to other playable characters.

The Black Knight class possesses extremely fearsome HP, strength and defense, exceeding those of normal classes by a significant margin. The remainder of its stats are high, with even its speed, the closest thing it has to a weak point, being respectable. The class's strengths are improved even further by the Black Knight's signature weapon, Alondite, which not only sports increased range and great power but also gives a boost to its user's defense. Whenever he is playable, the Black Knight is literally impossible to defeat as no enemies are able to even deal 1 HP of damage to him, and when he appears as a boss in Part 4, defeating the Black Knight is an extended game of attrition where Ike must slowly build up damage on him while surviving his onslaught.

Trivia

  • The Black Knight class shares all of its stats with a Marshall variant belonging to Zelgius. This variant is unused outside of cutscenes.
  • The Black Knight class is one of only three classes to share its name with the character who bears it; the other character/class pairs to do this are Giffca and Grima.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Black Knight As with the character bearing this class, this is derived both in name and in concept from the black knight stock literary figure, who masks their identity and that of their liege by not display heraldry. Black knights are usually portrayed as villainous figures who use this anonymity for misdeeds.
Japanese 漆黒の騎士ダークナイト Officially romanized as Dark Knight; literally "Black Knight". In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 漆黒の騎士), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. ダークナイト) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
Spanish Caballero Negro Black Knight
French Chevalier Noir Black Knight
German Schwarze Ritter Black Knight
Italian Cavaliere nero Black knight
