Bs fe03 unpromoted knight male sword.png
Battle sprite of the male unpromoted Knight from Mystery of the Emblem.

A Cavalier or Pegasus Knight while not riding their mount. They nimbly wield swords.





The (Japanese: ナイト Knight) is a class exclusive to Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem as part of its implementation of the dismounting system. It acts as the dismounted form of the Cavalier, Paladin, Pegasus Knight and Dracoknight, fighting on foot instead of their steed.

In this state, Knights exclusively wield swords and have their stats reduced from their mounted state, most prominently their movement; they also adopt the usual terrain penalties of standard foot units rather than the increased penalties of Cavaliers and Paladins, or the total immunity to terrain possessed by Pegasus Knights and Dracoknights. Although for male units their battle sprite differs depending on whether or not they are promoted in their mounted form, the Knight's stats do not differ at all based on promotion tier.

This class has statistical data in Shadow Dragon, but is unused.
