Knights are characterized by equipping swords, daggers, knight swords, shields, and heavy armor, and having high physical stats. Knights normally appear clad in heavy armor and battle circlets. A Knight can use Cover to protect his team, as well as low-rank White Magic.
Overtime, within the development of the series, several variations on the Knight job have emerged, taking on various fields of specialty and playing on its hybridization of roles.
- Paladins are holy-aligned knights with greater defensive and supportive abilities, functioning essentially as a higher level Knight.
- Dark Knights are the opposites of Paladins, wielding dark magic and forsaking defense and health for powerful attacks and offensive positions.
- The Mystic Knight can imbue his blade with both White and Black Magic to attach status and elemental effects to his attack.
- Dragoons, or "Dragon Knights", wield spears and use Jump skills.
