The Dark Knight is a dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2. In addition to Darkness and self-damaging skills, they use a number of status-inflicting spells like Bio and Death. Yuna wields Tidus' Caladbolg, Rikku wields Auron's Masamune, and Paine wields her own customized sword. The Dark Knight dons heavy black and spiked battle armor.

"As I bear this darkness into battle, my suffering becomes my strength."
"This armor isn't just for show, you know."
"Darkness is my ally. Those who cross me shall know its wrath."


Acquiring Dark Knight

In chapter 2, the dressphere is located in a chest before fighting Baralai in Bevelle.

  • Yuna's helmet is very similar to the hat worn by Sages in Final Fantasy III.
  • From a design standpoint, Paine’s Dark Knight is Tsukamoto’s favorite of Paine's dresspheres. “I handled a lot of monster designs prior to working on the costumes for FFX-2,” he says. “It feels like the scales of the monsters apply to this design. That’s why I like it a lot.” He also reveals that each of the girls' head pieces reflect their personalities, with the sharp edges of Paine's head piece to reflect her prickly outlook.
