The Dark Knight is a job in Final Fantasy Dimensions as a Warriors of Darkness exclusive job. It is obtained during the finale of the "A Blessing in Disguise" chapter.

The Dark Knight equips swords and heavy armor. In the chapter the job is introduced in, the Dark Knight's dark sword weaponry are the key to defeating enemies that revive upon being KO'd, however, this mechanic does not return outside of this chapter. The Dark Knight's only drawback is that its dark swords deal 0 damage to undead enemies and heal enemies that absorb dark-elemental damage.

Using their Dark Blade command, the Dark Knight must sacrifice themselves to deal stronger damage. The recurring Darkness ability allows them to deal powerful damage in exchange for some of their HP, and the Last Resort places the Doom status on the user to increase their base stats. The job also learns the strongest dark-elemental physical attack, Ebony Slash.

Aside from their Dark Blade skillset, the Dark Knight can learn some decent passive abilities, such as Backliner, which allows the Dark Knight to deal full damage from the back row; and Absorb HP, which allows the Dark Knight to absorb a portion of the damage inflicted by the default Attack command.

The Dark Knight abilities are required for the creation of fusion abilities that deal dark-elemental magic, with the only natural dark-elemental magic attack being the Diabolos summon.

Etymology[]

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.
