A Spellblade from Final Fantasy Tactics A2.

Mystic Knight (魔法剣士, Mahōkenshi?, lit. Magic Fencer), also known as Rune Fencer, Sorcerer, Spellblade or Spell Fencer, is a recurring job in the Final Fantasy series. Skilled in both magic and swordsmanship, they fuse both arts into Spellblade and are resistant to magic as a whole.


Final Fantasy VEdit

Main article: Mystic Knight (Final Fantasy V)

The Mystic Knight fuses magic spells which includes damaging spells or status inducing spells into their equipped sword. The wielder will smite enemies with his/her Spellblade.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

The Elemental Materia allows any character to function similar to a Mystic Knight when paired with an elemental damaging Magic Materia.

In addition, Cloud Strife was listed as a "Mystic Knight/Berserker" during development. Although that did not make it to the finished product, Cloud bears some traits of the Mystic Knight such as using swords in combat and being elite both physically and magically.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

Final Fantasy IX has a strong allusion to this job. Provided Vivi is in the party and not incapacitated, Steiner can use Sword Magic with Vivi's aid. Only the damaging Black Magic spells (e.g. Fire) can be used as Sword Magic, not Status Effect-inducing spells (e.g. Slow), and Vivi must know the spell in question. The attack uses Steiner's turn and MP, and does not affect Vivi's MP or ATB gauge.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Final Fantasy XI: Seekers of Adoulin brings with it the Rune Fencer job, described as "quick with a blade as well as an incantation", similar to the style of the Mystic Knight.
