Oh, shut up and help me remodel the Warrior of Light (World of Final Fantasy) page!
The Warrior of Light is a minor character in World of Final Fantasy. He is a Grymoirian incarnation of the Warrior of Light originating from the Dissidia Final Fantasy series. The Warrior of Light is one of the three character representatives of the first Final Fantasy, the other two being Princess Sarah and Garland (the latter appearing only in the Maxima version).
The Warrior of Light appears as a denizen of Grymoire. When introduced, he appears before the protagonists Lann and Reynn as the Brigade Captain of Cornelia. He informs the two of their plan to stop the enemy invasion in The Watchplains.
When Princess Sarah is about to be attacked by the Giant Goblin, the Captain steps in to save her, but the Goblin retaliates, prompting the twins' light to indirectly awaken the Captain's ability as a Champion. He fells the Goblin, and is dubbed by the Princess as the "Warrior of Light".
Returning to the castle with the Princess, he informs the twins of the "League of S", an anti-federation group rebelling against the Bahumutian army. The Warrior volunteers to contact them in Saronia, but Lann and Reynn go in his place instead, so that the Warrior can continue protecting Princess Sarah and Cornelia.

- Age in Grymoire: 20
- Notes: Stalwart soldier / Role model / Brigade captain
- From Medium to Champion
- This legendary hero fights for truth, justice, and the Cornelian way.
- When we first met the Warrior of Light, he was just another brigade captain in Cornelia's royal army. However, after being touched by the twins' mysterious light, he awakened as a Champion.
- Where Are the Other Warriors?
- In Grymoire, it was a nameless soldier who awakened as the Warrior of Light.
- But the Warriors of Light take many forms in many worlds. Perhaps you know of a few yourself. And perhaps those other Warriors may set foot in Grymoire one day, if they have not already.
- Soul Searching
- Grymoire's creator has marked certain people with unique and powerful souls as Mediums. Each Medium is a candidate with the potential to awaken as one of Grymoire's greatest defenders, the Champions.
- These souls are chosen from many worlds and copied over to an "A-World" like Grymoire in order to potentially become its Champion. But for the system to work, their lives must be reconstructed and adapted to the target world without changing the elements of their souls that made them so valuable in the first place.
- Interestingly, though, they often go on to lead lives similar to those of their originals. They are not supposed to remember who or what they once were... But over innumerable years and innumerable lives, some of these recreated souls seem to retain hazy memories of lives past. The Warrior of Light is one such special case, but in Grymoire, he is not the only one.

- FINAL FANTASY: As one of four heroes
- DISSIDIA -FINAL FANTASY-: As a distinct character
The player can take on Intervention Quests that center around the Warrior of Light.
The Warrior of Light also appears in the following Intervention Quests.
As a Champion, The Warrior Light can be summoned to assist Lann and Reynn in battle. Upon acquiring the Warrior of Light's Champion Medal, the player can summon him to attack one enemy with the ability Oversoul. The party is also bestowed with Strength ↑.
In the Maxima version, Lann can take on the appearance of the Warrior of Light by equipping the Warrior of Light's Champion Jewel. In doing so, he inherits the abilities Shining Wave and Enhanced Light.
"Prismelody: The Scene of Battle" plays when using Warrior of Light's Champion Medal. The player may select this theme as the background music for battles from the Config section of the main menu, labeled as "Champion Theme: Warrior of Light". This theme also plays in battles in Maxima version when Lann equips the Warrior of Light's Champion Jewel.
The following is a list of quotes uttered by the Warrior of Light when talking to him in Cornelia.
- All is quiet for the moment.
- Don't worry about us. I'll take care of things here.
- The other day I made the foolish decision of going to check on the goblins...
But...I would prefer not to talk about it.
- The Captain of the Guard turning into the Warrior of Light alludes to the original Final Fantasy whose main cast consists of a group of nameless people, but in the first Dissidia Final Fantasy one of them was redesigned into his own character.
- In the Intervention Quest, The Girl Who Forgot Her Name, the Warrior of Light is puzzled on how he possibly saved Princess Sarah previously, but cannot recall the event. This alludes to the original Final Fantasy, in which the four Warriors of Light rescue the original Princess Sarah from Garland.
- Upon ending his signature attack Oversoul, the Warrior enacts his pose from his artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, before warping into four orbs of light. The four orbs are colored identically to the elemental Crystals from Final Fantasy.
- The Warrior of Light's Who's Who entry describes him as a legendary warrior fighting for "truth, justice, and the Cornelian way". This alludes to the introduction of the Adventures of Superman TV series where Superman "fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way".
