There is also a Hoshidan enemy-only version called the Sturdy Knight (剛騎武者 Gōki Musha, lit. Strong Cavalry Warrior).
History in the series
Guardian Knight has so far only appeared in Fire Emblem Warriors. In that game, it appears to be a continuation of the Great Knight class, from which it promotes. The class is considered Armoured Cavalry and wields Axes.
Guardian Knight acts much like the Great Knight Class, with faster movement than infantry and slow, heavy strikes. However, the attacks of Guardian Knight are slightly faster, have a very slightly larger arc, and deal more damage.
