The Soldier is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. A common encounter in the early stages of the game, Soldiers have a bit more Attack power than most enemies the player may be used to. It can use the Bow I attack from the back row to hit one party member. It guards a couple of chests in the Dreadnought; one containing a Sleep Blade in Basement Two, and the other containing an Ice Shield on the fourth level.
The soldiers are present in the FMV opening depicting the Fall of Fynn. They were made tougher than the game implies them to be, with a soldier shrugging off throwing knives impacting his eye and throat.
