Ark Knight (アークナイト, Āku Naito?), also known as Arc Knight, is an enemy job in Final Fantasy Tactics that focuses on destroying opponent's morale, either by destroying statistics, equipment, or turning units against themselves.

The job is used by Elmdore and Zalbaag. While their action abilities differ, they both have Vampire in their second slot. Zalbaag's job has entirely different reaction and support abilities compared to all "basic" jobs found within the game. He can never learn Equip Axes, Beastmaster, Defend, and JP Boost, because those were replaced with Counter, Concentration, Safeguard, and Swiftness.

There is also a version of Delita as an Arc Knight, accessed via Gameshark, that possesses the action abilities of the Divine Knight.
