Chosen by the Wind Crystal to become a Warrior of Light when he wandered into the Altar Cave, whereupon he set out from his village on a quest to save the world. Though the Onion Knight's abilities were meager at the outset, he finally gained the power to stand against the source of the world's unrest itself.
The Onion Knight is a playable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper. While he is a representative of Final Fantasy III and is treated as such in all activities, his abilities are largely drawn from his appearances in the Dissidia Final Fantasy series.
He could first be recruited during the Challenge Event Aspiring Knight, wherein he was a First Time Reward for completing the event's Eureka - 7th Level East stage in the Classic Dungeons. He later appeared in Destroyer of Light and Dark, then attained his full powers in The Onion Knight Rises
The Onion Knight is an Onion Knight, whose combat role is Physical/Magic Hybrid.
At first glance, the Onion Knight shares much in common with the game's Core characters, including poor stats across the board, a fact compounded for the worse by an extremely slow progression through the basic leveling system. Worse still, he will be more reliant than most on permanent augments and Record Spheres for his potential power. Thus, until his Easter egg is tripped at level 92, he has little more than nostalgia to make a case for his recruitment. Upon reaching this level, his stats shoot skyward to rival his peers, which also pays homage to the job as it appears in the 2006 remake of Final Fantasy III.
When his Spheres become available, the Onion Knight is as much a jack-of-many-trades as, for example, Wol or the Keeper, but will still be heavily weighted towards a mage character in terms of his stats and equipment tuning. Skills such as Vessel of Fate will make him a solid support unit even without many augments activated.
