Crusader is an undead/skeleton-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII found in the Nabreus Deadlands and the Pharos. They rarely drop the Crown of Laurels. They also appear in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode in Stage 45 after the Brainpans and Deidars have been killed. They continuously spawn alongside Vishno until the latter is killed.

Being an undead warrior of some former renown, wearing armor of polished mythril. In life, these fell soldiers belonged to an invading army that massacred many people. It was the hatred of the slain that cursed the warriors, condemning them to an eternal unlife of aimless wandering. Scourged with remorse for their crimes and hatred of those who led the invasion, they ceaselessly roam the world, hoping one day to claim revenge.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Even though Crusader is a common enemy in the Pharos, they can be considered the hardest common enemies there due to their persistence in chasing down and outnumbering the party.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player can use Foe:Undead: Curaja for areas were Crusaders spawn. Holy Lance and Excalibur are good against them, especially if the wielder also equips White Robes. The player can also cast -ga tier spells (besides Darkga, which they absorb) with a staff that boosts the element of the spell.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The terms "Crusader" and "Jihad" are both associated with the historic "holy wars" fought between the Christian Europeans and Islamic Middle-Easterners for control of the holy land, the birthplace of Jesus Christ. "Crusader" (meaning "under the cross" because they were wearing a cross on their outfit) was a term used to describe the soldiers of the Crusades, the European term for the holy wars.
