The '''Dark Knight''' {{J|まけんし|Makenshi|Demon Swordsman" or "Magic Swordsman}} is a Job class obtained from the [[Water Crystal (Term)|Water Crystal]] in ''[[Final Fantasy III]]''. They are trained to harness the negative energies that flow throughout the world. The dark blades they wield are very effective against monsters that divide and multiply. In the original [[NES]] release of the game, the Dark Knight could cast [[White Magic]] similar to a [[Paladin (Job)|Paladin]].

Dark Knights are warriors of the dark blade. Their Soul Eater ability allows them to convert their life into extra damage.
—In-game description

The Dark Knight (まけんし, Makenshi?, lit. Demon Swordsman" or "Magic Swordsman) is a Job class obtained from the Water Crystal in Final Fantasy III. They are trained to harness the negative energies that flow throughout the world. The dark blades they wield are very effective against monsters that divide and multiply. In the original NES release of the game, the Dark Knight could cast White Magic similar to a Paladin.

Abilities

NES Version

White Magic Level

3D Versions

The Dark Knight sacrifices 20% its current HP to attack all enemies, which can be useful for defeating enemies who multiply.

Its damage is calculated using the following formula:

Damage Inflicted = Weapon Attack x 5 + JobLv x 10 + CurrentHP x 0.9
