The Lance Knight (ランスナイト Ransu Naito) is a horse-mounted combat physical class that rides into battle armed with Lances. Lance Knights are first introduced to the series in Genealogy of the Holy War, where they face stiff competition with other mounted classes that include Cavaliers, Free Knights, Axe Knights and Bow Knights. They return in Thracia 776, where they switch to wielding Swords in indoor battles with the introduction of dismounting mechanics. This feature is criticized for defeating the purpose of Lance Knights and thence making them inferior to the Cavalier class.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, the Lance Knight is one of the many mounted classes that appear in the Jugdral Series. Like its name suggests, the Lance Knight class specialises in Lances, promoting into Duke Knights when the requirements are met.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, Lance Knights are simply known as Lancers. Stat-wise, Lancers are similar to Soldiers, except that they are mounted. There are no playable Lancers.

The Lance Knight class is not seen again until Path of Radiance where it replaces Cavalier altogether, appearing along with the Axe and Bow Knights classes, all three classes promote into the shared Paladin class.

In TearRing Saga: Berwick Saga, the Lance Knight is known as the Spear Knight class, instead their promotion is titled Lance Knight, more like Lance Paladins in function. Their promotion, Lance Knight, has the Lance skill allowing them to use lance subtype of spears. Unlike Cavaliers, Spear Knights can only use Spears and Small Shields. There is also a weaker enemy variant of the class called Spear Rider. This enemy variant is a mounted Spear Soldier, similar to Lancers from Tearring Saga.

In Radiant Dawn. Lance Knight (槍騎士ランスナイト Ransu naito) promotes into Lance Paladin and thereafter into the Silver Knight class when the necessary requirements are met.
