The Dark Sage (Japanese: 闇の賢者ダークセイジ Dark Sage) is an advanced magical class which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is a variant of the common Sage class with unique access to dark magic, and is exclusive to the character Pelleas. The class is one of Radiant Dawn's element-specialized versions of the Sage class of other Fire Emblem series games, along with the Fire Sage, Thunder Sage, Wind Sage and Light Sage, and it specializes in dark magic while also being able to use thunder magic.

As one of only three playable classes and two playable units in Radiant Dawn which can use dark magic, Pelleas has a unique advantage as a Dark Sage. The class's stats are very similar to the other Sage classes (and identical to the Thunder Sage), with high magic, skill and speed, and as a result deals in pure magical offense which is improved by the superior raw power of dark tomes. However, in addition to the traditional frailty of Sages, The class is hindered by the sheer weight of dark tomes, the heaviest of all magic types, and a lack of enough constitution to work around this.

The Dark Sage's promoted form is the Arch Sage, specifically an individual variant which gains access to staves in addition to the Dark Sage's thunder and dark magic. There is no base equivalent of this class anywhere in the game; in fact, no base classes are able to use dark magic at all. Also, although there are dark magic-wielding enemies in Radiant Dawn, they use the Druid class rather than the Dark Sage.
