- Dark Claw (IV): 5* weapon relic. Dark Knight Cecil's signature weapon in the Dissidia games, based on an artwork of Yoshitaka Amano.
- Dark Armor (IV): 4* armor relic. Dark Knight Cecil's signature armor in the Dissidia games, based on an artwork of Yoshitaka Amano and Tetsuya Nomura's redesign.

The Dark Sword and Deathbringer are exclusive weapons for Cecil in Final Fantasy IV, while Cecil's primary use of spears come from his "Knight of the Red Moon" Paladin art by Yoshitaka Amano. Thus far, the spears are exclusive to the Dissidia series.
Cecil's manikin counterpart in this game is named Cecil Manikin.
Cecil is encountered by the party in Chapter 2: Ruins of Deserta. He falls through one of the Torsions and is met by Y'shtola and Sazh Katzroy, who are alarmed by his armored appearance. He apparently fell through the portal early in the events of Final Fantasy IV, describing himself as a knight of Baron. Although Mog and the Warrior of Light sense the light in him and ask him to join them, Cecil demurs. He says that he has been a dark knight for too long to be of use to them. However, when monsters attack the party, Cecil comes to their aid, his self-doubt overcome by the need to protect them. Mog insists again that he should join them, and the Warrior points out that there is no darkness without there being light also. Encouraged by their words, Cecil contemplates a day when his sword might bear the light and joins the party.
In Chapter 3, the party is forced to fight Edge Geraldine, being mistaken for the Manikins. Although Edge and Cecil have not yet met in their world, they recognize the names of their respective kingdoms.
