Knuckles (拳武器, Kobushibuki?), also known as Claws (, Tsume?), Gloves, and Fists, are a weapon type from various games in the series, and are usually associated with the Monk class. Recurring knuckles include the Cat Claws, Godhand, Kaiser Knuckles, and Tiger Fangs. The ultimate version of this weapon varies.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IIEdit

Two knuckles appear, the Cat Claws and the Dragon Claws. However, they are classified in-game as daggers, and their status as Kknuckles is only present in later releases. The Cat Claws originally appeared as a dagger but in the Origins release and beyond, they appear as traditional claw-like knuckles, and the Dragon Claws are exclusive to the Anniversary release where they are exclusive to Josef, who has the traditional stats of a Monk.
