Non-Final Fantasy guest appearances[]

Mana series[]

Hawkeye as a Nightblade in the Trials of Mana remake.

The Nightblade is a recurring class in the Mana series, appearing in Trials, Sword, and Heroes of Mana as a variation of the Thief class by its Dark-Dark path. Its appearance in Trials of Mana serves as the job's original appearance, being a high leveled class available at level 38 for Hawkeye should he progress as a Ninja in his first class change, and as a high level enemy in late parts of the game.

The Nightblade class specializes in major offensive trickery, from harassing foes from afar with status effect inflicting jutsu spells gained and inspired from its prior Ninja class.
