Oh, shut up and help me remodel the King's Knight -Wrath of the Dark Dragon- page!
King's Knight -Wrath of the Dark Dragon- was an online vertical scrolling shooter set in the Final Fantasy XV Universe. It was an expansion of the 1986 Square Co., Ltd. title King's Knight. It was announced during Square Enix's Active Time Report during the 2016 Tokyo Games Show. It was a free-to-play game on Android and iOS platforms. It is referenced in Final Fantasy XV, as a game enjoyed by Noctis Lucis Caelum and his friends.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]
- For further details, see Quest (King's Knight).
A mission-based scrolling shooter with customizable units, Wrath of the Dark Dragon had players automatically progress forward through each area while avoiding projectiles and destroying environmental barriers and enemies. Some missions had traps and floor panels that provided varying advantages and disadvantages. The game also featured a multiplayer mode that was playable by up to four players.
Scores for each playable zone were based on the scale of destruction wrought throughout the zone, with bonuses awarded for objectives such as defeating all enemies in the zone or not taking damage. Further, each playable zone had three target scores and three collectible medals; meeting the targets would reward the player with in-game currency and other items.

- Kaliva (カリバ, Kariba?), the Wizard (魔道士, Madōshi?) - One of the heroes blessed by Khalam, Kaliva was once a wizard of unmatched brilliance, but after failing to save a close friend during the Great War, he withdrew into a life of seclusion.
