"Help" description

Dark Knight's menu icon. The Dark Knight is a dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2 obtained in the Bevelle Underground in Chapters 2, 3, or 5, in a treasure chest near the end of the area. In addition to Darkness and self-damaging skills, they use a number of status effect-inflicting spells, like Bio and Death, via their Arcana skillset.

Profile[edit | edit source]

The Dark Knight dons heavy black and spiked battle armor.

Yuna wears indigo-tinted armor covering her chest, arms, and hips with pink and teal accents. Her armor is smoother than the others'. She wears pink bikini bottoms, pink thigh covers, knee-high armored boots and a crescent-shaped helmet.

Rikku wears brown-tinted armor covering her chest, arms, and hips with pink and teal accents. Her armor is spiked on the shoulders. She wears pink bikini and pink thigh covers. She wears knee-high armored boots and a spiked helmet.

Paine wears black armor covering her chest, arms, and hips with pink and teal accents. Her armor is pricklier than the others'. She wears pink bikini bottoms over blue shorts and pink thigh covers. She wears knee-high armored boots and a half moon-shaped prickly helmet.

Yuna wields Tidus's Caladbolg, Rikku wields Auron's Masamune, and Paine wields a customized sword.

Yuna's victory pose is to put her sword into the ground, then rest her arms and head on the hilt. Rikku holds her sword behind her, while Paine spins her sword above her head, then puts her sword into the ground.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Mastering Dark Knight requires 490 Ability Points. Arcana abilities can be used outside of the Dark Knight dressphere by equipping the Arcane Lore accessory or the Chaos Maelstrom Garment Grid. Yuna has access to Arcana abilities through the Mascot dressphere. Even though it is classified as Arcana magic, Dark Knight cannot learn Osmose. Osmose is instead accessible through the Covetous Garment Grid.

Spellspring can reduce Darkness's HP cost to 0, despite it being meant to apply only to MP costs.

Dark Knight's auto-abilities immunize her to status ailments.

Creation and development[edit | edit source]

From a design standpoint, Paine's Dark Knight is costume designer Tsukamoto's favorite of Paine's designs. "I handled a lot of monster designs prior to working on the costumes for FFX-2", he says. "It feels like the scales of the monsters apply to this design. That's why I like it a lot." He also reveals that each of the girls' head pieces reflect their personalities, with the sharp edges of Paine's head piece to reflect her prickly outlook.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

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.

The Charon ability's name is taken from the Greek mythology's Charon, the ferryman who transports the newly deceased across the river Styx.
