Final Fantasy Record Keeper Edit


FFRK Onion Knight FFVI

Onion Knight from Final Fantasy VI appears in Final Fantasy Record Keeper as an enemy.

Etymology Edit

The onion, also known as the bulb onion or common onion, is used as a vegetable and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium.

The adjective of onion refers to the Japanese metaphoric idiom of poverty, aptly named the "Onion Life", "peeling away one layer at a time and crying all the way". Alternatively, the term could come from the slang phrase "to know one's onions", meaning to be very versatile.

Onion Knight's older name is Pipsqueak. Pipsqueak is a person considered to be insignificant, especially because they are small or young.

Trivia Edit

  • A generic enemy named Onion Knight appears in Infinite Undiscovery. They resemble the Final Fantasy VI counterpart and use a skill named "Limit Break", which starts with a yellow aura appearing around them, much like in Final Fantasy VII.
