The Onion Knight is a job class in Final Fantasy III. In the original NES version of the game, it is the default job class, while in the DS remake, it is a secret job class. It has very low statistics until around level 93.

Although the four Onion Knights of the NES version are not named in the game, the official manga serialization of the game, Legend of the Eternal Legend: Final Fantasy III, reveals they are named Muuchi (ムウチ), Doug (ダグ), J. Bowie (J・ボウイ), and Melfi (メルフィ, the only female in the group).

Obtaining the Job

In the DS remake, the player must send a Mognet letter to each character in the game, as well as one to another person playing Final Fantasy III. Afterwards, the player must send four letters to Topapa, and after receiving the fourth, you will be told that some children are in danger. Go to Altar Cave and rescue the children from the Bombs. Afterwards, you will be given the Onion Knight job.

In the European version, the player must send seven letters to a friend and four to Topapa. There are no other differences.

Abilities

NES version

  • Special Ability - None

The Onion Knight gets no special abilities, since it is the default job class and the weakest during the beginning of the game. However, once the character reaches level 99, their stats expand rapidly, reaching 99 in every stat, making it the most powerful class in the game. It's also the only class that can use the Onion equipment which is the strongest equipment in the game.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Main article: Onion Knight (Final Fantasy III)/Dissidia

Chaos has summoned a combined force of Final Fantasy's ultimate masters of evil. Cosmos, in an attempt to protect the Crystals, has summoned warriors to thwart their plans. Onion Knight is one of these warriors and stands as the hero representing Final Fantasy III, opposing Cloud of Darkness.

Forming a duo with Terra Branford of Final Fantasy VI, and later a trio with Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy VII, the Onion Knight tries to offer the meek heroine his support through bravado and continual assurance of their victory. However, in truth he is easily frightened of powerful enemies and uses his head to escape from conflicts. The Onion Knight's encounters with the various villains during the game serve to test his courage and strength in the face of danger.

Kingdom Hearts Mobile
