The Silver Knight (Japanese: 白銀騎将シルバーナイト Silver Knight) is an advanced cavalry class which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is a rare third-tier promoted class and the final stage in class change lines for Lance Knights and Bow Knights, promoting from Lance Paladins and Bow Paladins. Silver Knights wield both lances and bows, while a counterpart class, the Gold Knight, wields swords and axes.

Silver Knights are, like their Paladin predecessors, defined by being well-balanced with decent stats all around. Their offensive prowess, durability and agility are all high if not outstanding, and their resistance is somewhat superior to that of most physically-inclined classes. As a mounted class, their most outstanding feature is their high movement which allows them to cross battlefields at a much greater rate than infantry, although in return they, like all cavalry, are significantly more hindered by terrain penalties.
