The Dark Knight (暗黒騎士, Ankoku Kishi?) is a job class in Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. It has abilities that focus on hurting opponents while sacrificing their own HP. It costs 6,900 JP to master. To get the Fell Swords, the player must play the Multiplayer mode.
In the original PlayStation version, Dark Knight was Gaffgarion's exclusive Job class. His class has since been renamed to Fell Knight. While his two abilities, Shadowblade and Duskblade, appear identical to Sanguine Sword and Infernal Strike, Gaffgarion's variants are slightly more powerful.
This warrior exchanges life for power, using Darkness to disintegrate all who stand before him.
