Male and Female Onion Knights.

The Onion Knight is a job class from Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. One of the new job classes, the Onion Knight has very basic stats, and no real abilities. However, it has hidden potential, in that it has increased power dependent on the amount of other job classes the unit has mastered, much like Freelancers in other games like Final Fantasy V. To get one level, the character must master two jobs, so to get the maximum Onion Knight level the character must master 14 jobs. However, mastering the Squire, Chemist, Mime, or Dark Knight job class will not count towards leveling up an Onion Knight.



Although able to equip all weapons, this sad warrior excels at none, and as is far from being the most powerful.

Note: The Onion Knight can equip every piece of equipment in the game. Males can even equip female exclusive equipment.
