The Black Knight, also known as the SwordMan, is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV. While it may not appear as such, it is an undead enemy and may be harmed with curative magic. They have high Attack and Defense, but are not much of a threat due to having Fire-elemental equipment, which can be found earlier in the dungeon. They usually travel in pairs or fours.

Etymology Edit

Dark knights, also known as black knights, were a minority group of knights who refused to serve lords or kings. Instead they either looted and raided, hunted bounties, or lived off the charity from the more humble folk, in much the same manner as a Japanese ronin. As they had no master, and thus no squire, they would paint their armor a signature black color to prevent rust and damage. Dark knights were considered by many a necessary evil, as they would protect villages and lesser people from invaders and bandits, but would also cause problems in the regions they dwelt in to sustain themselves.
