Unit type(s)






Lance Paladin (槍騎将 Lance Horse General) is a horse-riding class found in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, whose members use lances. It is one of the four paladin classes in the game, along with the Blade Paladin, Axe Paladin, and Bow Paladin classes.

They have generally high stats, with few weaknesses but no all-around strengths. Their high movement speed gives them great utility in combination with the Canto skill, with which they can use up "leftover" spaces. However, their fairly low resistance leaves them vulnerable to magic users, and they are susceptible to certain weapons, such as horseslayers or poleaxes. Lance paladins are the promoted forms of Lance Knights, and they promote into Silver Knights.
