Mystic Knight

This page remains incomplete.

Mystic Knight (魔法剣士 [mahou kenshi] or 'magic swordsman' in Japanese) could be thought to be one of the rarest jobs in Final Fantasies at first glance. However, first impressions can be deceiving as this job has also been translated as Spellblade, Spell Fencer, and in older translations as Magic Knight as well. This does bring up the number of times it has been used, although only slightly. Mystic Knight remains rare. In most cases where it appeared, they have worn Near East-inspired clothes complete with turbans and/or veils in white, purple and teal colors. Jobs alike to the Mystic Knight are Red Mage and Rune Fencer, although the job itself is a kind of a combination between a Black Mage and either a Knight or a Fencer.

Mystic Knights are capable of infusing their swords with various spells, giving them elemental affinities and extra damaging capabilities. In some games this ability is given to Red Mages though, so it should not be considered an automatic sign of a Mystic Knight. There is one example of a Mystic Knight to date, Krinjh from 4 Heroes of Light. Aside from him, the white wizard Minwu from FF2 resembles a Mystic Knight in appearance, although not function.

Mystic Knights function on the basis of using up one turn to give their attacks an elemental/magical affinity. This makes them only good for boss battles, but boss battles is exactly where they can shine. Their stats are average aside from AGI, which is moderately high. Do note that to use a certain Spellblade skill, you must have first purchased the corresponding Black Magic spell.
