Dark Knights are warriors of the dark blade. Their Soul Eater ability allows them to convert their life into extra damage.
—Description
The bearer of this certificate has become infused with the world's negative energies and is deemed worthy of the title of Master Dark Knight.
—Mastery certificate description

The Dark Knight 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 effective against monsters that divide and multiply. In the original NES release, the Dark Knight can cast White Magic similar to a Paladin.

AbilitiesEdit

NES versionEdit

  • Special ability - White Magic Levels 1 - 3, excluding Aero
White Magic Level
Cure 1
Poisona 1
Sight 1
Toad 2
Mini 2
Cura 3
Teleport 3
Blindna 3

3D versionsEdit

The Dark Knight sacrifices 20% of its current HP to attack all enemies, which can be useful for defeating enemies who multiply, and is at full damage regardless of row. It can be used to dispatch multiple enemies at once, but will not be as useful for bosses and later dungeons. Souleater's maximum damage exceeds 11,350.

Its damage is calculated using the following formula:

Damage Inflicted = Weapon Attack x 5 + JobLv x 10 + Current HP x 0.9

EtymologyEdit

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.
