The Mage Knight (Japanese: マージナイト Mageknight) is an advanced mounted class which debuted in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. It is the first class in the Fire Emblem series to wield both physical weapons and magic in combination: in its case, it can wield swords and all three types of anima magic in Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776. In its third and final appearance in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, however, the Mage Knight is a pure magical class, wielding anima and staves. The Mage Knight is a class change option for Mages in all three of its appearances; it is also an option for Troubadours in The Sacred Stones.

As expected of a mixed-weaponry class, the Jugdral incarnation of the Mage Knight is unique in its balanced status; while not possessing the same sheer strength in both types as a pure-physical or pure-magical unit, it is competent in both fields. It also possesses unusually high defense for a magical unit. As a mounted class, in Thracia 776 they are capable of dismounting and are forced to do so for indoor terrain, and unlike most dismounted units will not lose access to any of their weapons. The version of the Mage Knight in The Sacred Stones fits into a more standard magical unit mold.

In Awakening, the Mage Knight is replaced with the functionally identical Dark Knight.

Trivia

  • In The Sacred Stones's entry on the Nintendo website in 2005, it was erroneously claimed that the Mage Knight as it appeared in said game was capable of using both "weapons and magic" as it did prior to The Sacred Stones.[1]
  • The Mage Knight's German name, "Warlock", is also the Italian name of the Sorcerer.
