Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Demon Knight, also known as Hemophyte, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.


Its special attack Cursed Gaze inflicts Sap, and it can use Crypt Dust to revive fallen characters as Zombies. The latter is especially dangerous if the Demon Knight is paired with a Yojimbo, who uses unblockable Death attacks. When alone, the Demon Knight may use Shockwave up to three times, but it is not that powerful.

The Demon Knight has no elemental weakness or resistances, so the player can use any means at their disposal to dispatch them.

Coliseum setupEdit

Bet Genji Glove for Thunder Shield
Bet Guard Bracelet for Hero's Ring
Bet Paladin's Shield for Force Shield

Demon Knight's Cursed Gaze is nothing major, and can be nullified by having the Miracle Shoes or Angel Ring equipped. Shockwave should do little damage to a character with decent Magic Defense, and can even be evaded with decent Magic Evasion. Spare a relic slot for a Reflect Ring to reflect Holy back onto Demon Knight.
