Gladiator (剣闘士 [kentoushi] 'gladiator' or グラディエーター [gladiator] or 剣術士 [kenjutsushi] 'sword user' in Japanese) has been several things along the years in the Final Fantasy series, as can be seen from the variety of the Japanese name of the job. The jobs have their sword-wielding in common, and all are to some degree modeled after the ancient Roman gladiators, but that is where the similarities end. Related jobs could be said to be Warrior, Knight or even Berserker to some degree.

As an example of a Gladiator there is Greinfarr from FF14.

Gladiators in their various appearances have shown up several times in the FF-TCG series, bearing various elements like Earth, Fire and Lightning. Note that the English name of the jobs consists of three different Japanese-language jobs, meaning for the purposes of the FF-TCG they are different. Please note the Japanese names of the cards.
