Black Knight is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. They are strong enemies that hit hard, but do not have too much HP. It is advised to use Fire-elemental weapons, such as Flame Claws or Flame Sword to fight these enemies, or spells such as Fira. When attacked by anything, it will counter with a physical attack, but when left alone, it will instead counter all physical attacks by using Curse, and all magic attacks by recovering HP by using Leech.

Etymology Edit

Dark knights, also known as black knights, were a minority group of knights who refused to serve lords or kings. Instead they either looted and raided, hunted bounties, or lived off the charity from the more humble folk, in much the same manner as a Japanese ronin. As they had no master, and thus no squire, they would paint their armor a signature black color to prevent rust and damage. Dark knights were considered by many a necessary evil, as they would protect villages and lesser people from invaders and bandits, but would also cause problems in the regions they dwelt in to sustain themselves. In some legends, black knights were reputed to be nigh-invincible in combat.
