FF4PSPBattle Dark Knight Cecil
FF4PSPBattle Paladin Cecil

Cecil is a playable character in Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy IV -Interlude- an Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. He is a physically-geared knight who wields a sword and wears heavy armor. He starts as a Dark Knight, able to equip dark swords and consume his own health to damage his opponents, but becomes a Paladin, able to equip holy swords and cast some basic White Magic.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

IV As a Dark Knight, Cecil's stats are weighted physically, and he has barely any Magic Defense. As a Dark Knight he has low MP and Spirit. In the 3D remakes, he can boost his attack power with the Darkness ability, but at the cost of HP.

Once Cecil becomes a Paladin, his stats increase, especially in Magic Defense and Spirit. Though Cecil loses all his levels when he becomes a Paladin, a Level 1 Paladin Cecil has 600 HP, more than even a Level 20 Dark Knight Cecil. Cecil can use White Magic as a Paladin, but his magic stats are not high, making him a mediocre support healer or someone to take damage for the team.

AbilitiesEdit

As a Dark Knight, Cecil uses the Darkness ability, which has two effects. In the 2D releases, it damages all opponents with a wave of dark energy fired from his blade, dealing non-elemental damage, and consuming Cecil's HP by 1/8 whenever he uses it. In the 3D versions, Darkness envelopes its user in an aura that doubles the amount of damage caused by regular attacks at the cost of a small amount of HP being lost every round.

Once Cecil becomes a Paladin, he can use Cover, which allows him to intercept physical attacks against the ally Cover is targeting. Cecil automatically uses it to protect any ally whose HP is low. Cecil will stop covering, active or passive, when his own HP is critical. He can use some basic White Magic and in the 3D releases learns several more spells as well as fighting techniques using augments. Cecil loses his ability to use Darkness, but he can relearn it with the Darkness Augment stolen from Odin. His intellect stats decrease his effectiveness with some of those skills. The spells he can learn are listed below.

EquipmentEdit

FF4PSP Weapon Deathbringer

As a Dark Knight Cecil can only equip special swords, shields, and armor designed specifically for Dark Knights. His weapons are ineffective against Zombies, Ghouls, Revenants, and Skulnants. His most powerful Dark Sword, the Deathbringer, can inflict instant death on hit.

FF4PSP Weapon Ragnarok

As a Paladin, Cecil's equipment changes based on the version.

In the 2D versions, Cecil can equip swords, staves, bows and arrows, knives, and axes. Cecil can equip most shields, hats, helmets, armor, tunics, rings, and gloves, not to mention his original ultimate weapon, the Ragnarok, and—if he proves himself worthy in his Lunar Trial—he can obtain the almighty Lightbringer.

In the 3D versions, Cecil may equip the Adamant Armor and all the onion equipment, including the Onion Sword, which has an attack power equal to twice the level of the character using it. His ultimate weapon is the Ragnarok, though it is weaker than in the 3D release.

StatsEdit

Cecil's HP and Strength growth are among the highest in the game, making him an excellent attacker, but his Spirit is low, so he cannot make good use of his White Magic.
