The Kinshi Knight (Japanese: 金鵄武者 Kinsi Musya) is an advanced flying class debuting in Fire Emblem Fates. It is the first flying class in the Fire Emblem series to be capable of wielding bows. Compared to the other Hoshidan advanced flying class, the Falcon Knight, it has less speed, strength, and defense, in exchange for greater skill, making its attacks more accurate.

The Kinshi Knight is one of the potential promotion options for both Sky Knights and Archers.
