Blade Paladin (Japanese: 剣騎将 Sword Horse General) class, also known as the Blade Knight (Japanese: ブレイドナイト Blade Knight) class, is a sword-wielding class that appears in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is one of the four Paladin classes of its game, along with the Lance Paladin, Axe Paladin, and Bow Paladin classes.

As a second-tier class, blade paladins tend to be quite strong and reliable. Their stats are quite balanced, except for their resistance, which is relatively low, although this is normal for classes using physical weapons. Since they ride on horseback, they have high movement and weight stats. Their possession of the Canto skill allows them to use leftover movement spaces after other actions, such as attacking or trading. However, since third-tier classes exist in Radiant Dawn, their power is dwarfed by that of fully promoted classes.

Blade paladins are promoted from sword knights. They can then become gold knights.
