The Holy Knight (Japanese: ホーリーナイト Holy Knight) is an advanced magical class which debuted in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It acts as a white magic-specializing counterpart to the Dark Knight.

The Holy Knight shares many of its traits with its dark counterpart, having high movement even when dismounted, very high resistance, good magic, and decent defenses. The Holy Knight emphasizes resistance and luck much more, and has weaker physical defense and raw magic power, however. Its offenses are respectable, though not quite as powerful as other magic classes, owing to the lack of offensive white magic spells in the game. It additionally trades off the healing potency and number of spell uses the Bishop grants.
