The Malig Knight (レヴナントナイト Revunanto naito, lit. Revenant Knight in the Japanese version) is an undead Wyvern-mounted combat physical and magical class that is first introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. One of the promoted forms of the Wyvern Rider class, Malig Knights wield Tomes and Axes as their weapons of choice.


CombatEdit

Malig Knights play much like Dark Fliers of the previous Fire Emblem title, as the both ride black aerial mounts and possess physical and magical weapons. The only difference is that Malig Knights are physically stronger then the Dark Flier. Dark Fliers are still stronger in terms of magic, speed, luck and resistance.

In addition, Malig Knights are slightly weaker then their other promoted counterpart, the Wyvern Lord. However, Malig Knights do have access to magic, which can help when dealing with physically defensive units, compared to the Wyvern Lord who is typically a physical weapon user.

The two skills that Malig Knights can learn are Savage Blow and Trample.

Savage Blow chips off 20% of all nearby enemies max health as damage to those two tiles away from the user. While it may not seem much, it helps weaken a larger group of units compared to Poison Strike and Grisly Wound, both of which only deal damage to the target the user attack.

Trample allows the Malig Knight to deal 5 extra damage regardless of what they are using if they fight a non-mounted unit. It is considerably more effective against Hoshidan then Nohrian units, as most Nohrian units are typically mounted which prevents Trample from taking effect. On the other side, many Hoshidan units are footsoldiers, which results in them taking the extra damage from Trample.

At the end of the day, no matter how fortified a unit is in either Defense of Resistance, and no matter how far away they hide, Malig Knights can hunt them down and kill them quickly and efficiently, especially if they are fighting on only their own two feet.
