Not to be confused with: Axe Knight from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga.

The Axe Knight (アクスナイト Akusu Naito) is a horse-mounted combat physical class that specialises in Axes.

History in the Series

In its original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, the Axe Knight, like its name suggests, specialises in Axes. This class promotes into Great Knights when the necessary requirements are met.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, the Axe Knight class is known as the Axe Rider (アクスライダー Akusu raidā, translated as Cuirassier in the fan translation) and is only available to the enemy.

The Axe Knight class does not surface again until Path of Radiance. The promoted form of this class is the Paladin class in this title.

In Radiant Dawn, Axe Knight (斧騎士アクスナイト Akusu naito) promotes into Axe Paladin and further promote into the Gold Knight class when the necessary requirements are met.
