Paine from Final Fantasy X-2 is a Warrior.

To attack is the best defense.

Dissidia Final Fantasy, Warrior Lore

The Warrior (戦士, Senshi?), also known as the Fighter, is a recurring job in the series. It is one of the core basic jobs within the job system.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Warriors equip swords, daggers, axes, shields, and armor, and have high physical stats. The Warrior is usually one of the basic jobs in each game, focusing on strong melee damage and survivability. In later installments, Warriors were given the ability to lower the stats of their opponents.

The Knight job is generally seen as an upgrade to the Warrior, but lacks the strict offensive focus of the job, gaining supportive abilities.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy[edit | edit source]

As an invaluable asset to most parties, the Warrior is often a first choice when it comes to picking a team. The Warrior's upgrade, the Knight, is an even greater source of physical power, and can use White Magic. This is probably one of the most important character classes one can choose, as a Warrior can take a great amount of punishment, deals high damage, and can heal in an emergency after job-changing.

The Warrior is a job gained from the Wind Crystal. Warriors have a high aptitude for wielding swords in battle. Having focused all their training on physical combat, they are unable to use any magic.

Adelbert Steiner is a Knight by profession, but in terms of equipment and stat-growth can be considered a Warrior, wielding heavy swords and boasting the highest strength and HP. He also has access to debilitating sword abilities and can lower his opponents' attack and defense, which offer him skillsets and abilities from Dark Knight, Mystic Knight (when paired with Vivi), and Samurai.
