Dissidia Final Fantasy, Warrior Lore

The Warrior (戦士, Senshi?), also known as the Fighter, is a job that appears in various games in the series. It is one of the core basic jobs within the job system.


Warriors are characterized by equipping swords, daggers, axes, shields, and armor, and having high physical stats. The Warrior is usually one of the basic jobs in each game, and its focus is strong melee damage and survivability. In later installments, Warriors were given the ability to lower the stats of their opponents.

The Knight job is generally seen as an upgrade to the Warrior, but lacks the strict offensive focus of the job, gaining supportive abilities.
