The Armored Lance (Japanese: 槍重装兵ランスアーマー Lance Armor) is a basic armored class debuting in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. It is one of four weapon-specific variations of the Knight, specialising in the use of lances, and appears only in Thracia 776 and Radiant Dawn; in Genealogy of the Holy War, the Knight class itself filled its role as the basic lance-wielding armored class. It is statistically near-identical to its counterparts, the Armored Axe, Armored Sword and Bow Armor.

It is not playable in either of its appearances, and as such is not tied to a class change line; in Radiant Dawn, the lance-specific Lance General would be its hypothetical class-changed form and does have two playable members.

Both used in the Thracia 776 fan translation.

Japanese

ランスアーマー
槍重装兵ランスアーマー

• Lance Armor; this name was used in Thracia 776.
• Officially romanized as Lance Armor; literally "lance heavy knight". In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 槍重装兵), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. ランスアーマー) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
