The Pegasus Knight (ペガサスナイト Pegasus Knight) is a usually female-only unit class who fights on a flying Pegasus mount with a Lance (although, in Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi and Genealogy of the Holy War, they are able to use Swords as well). They have appeared in every Fire Emblem game up to date. These characters have the ability to fly over normally impassable terrain for long distances, a natural ability to fear should you be facing air units. Pegasus Knights tend to have very low Defense and HP, making them a little more fragile than other characters. Their high Speed is their saving grace, easily avoiding attacks. It seems, game-wise at least, that Pegasus Knights live in cold places with lots of snow.

In Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, they are the promoted version of the Pegasus Rider class.

In Fire Emblem: Fates, the class is renamed Pegasus Warrior and is unisex. It is a Hoshidan class.

In GameEdit

CombatEdit

The Pegasus Knight may seem fragile, but they are one of the most useful classes to have on the field. Their ability to fly, giving them advantages over opponents, and the ability to use the rescue command in later Fire Emblem titles allows them to be used as a type of transport for ground units. When attacking, it is always important to pay attention to your enemies, as Pegasus Knights are weak against classes that use bows. However, they tend to have decent Resistance in most games of the series and often at times their high speeds allow them to dodge very efficiently. Because of this, Pegasus Knights can avoid attacks from bow-wielders if trained properly. While Pegasus Knights tend to focus on Speed more than Defense, Defense is also present which makes them less fragile than other classes with low Defense.

PromotionsEdit

The Pegasus Knight was originally promoted into the Wyvern Rider, but these classes were eventually separated into two different classes. However, Pegasus Knights can promote to Wyvern Knight in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Currently, the Pegasus Knight promotes into the Falcon Knight in most titles. In Fire Emblem: Awakening, a new class has been introduced entitled Dark Flier promotes from Pegasus Knight and allows the class to ride atop a black Pegasus and wield Lances and Tomes. In Fire Emblem: Fates they can promote to the Golden Kite Warrior which gives them access to Bows while flying on the mythical bird.

WeaknessEdit

Pegasus Knights have a weakness to bows. They often use Javelins to compensate for their low defenses against them. They are also vulnerable to wind magic, but given their rather good Resistance growths, this becomes less and less of an issue as they level up.

UniformEdit

Characters of the Pegasus Knight class are often depicted in a tunic, sometimes they are wearing a miniskirt that just covers their hips underneath the tunics. If they are not wearing a miniskirt underneath the tunic, the tunic then becomes hip length and most of the time have a slit either side of the tunic from the top of their waist to the lower half of their hips. Although sometimes the slits are not present such as in Florina's artwork. They wear a white belt with beige edges around their waist which sometimes has a sheath to carry their swords in. (as seen here in Shiida's artwork)

They do not wear leggings but most are shown with knee high or thigh-highsocks socks and boots. Although some like Misha's artwork depicts them with leggings.

Often they wear arm-length or wrist-length gloves and some are fingerless gloves.

Some have a headband tied around their head.

For armor they wear a breastplate, shoulder guards, and a round helmet.

In Awakening, their belt has an item pouch attached to the rear, which they lose upon promotion.

Trivia Edit

MalePegasusKnight

The Male Pegasus Knights in Mystery of the Emblem were the only in the entire series at the time of the game's release, until Fire Emblem: Fates. Note the male rider in comparison to the playable female one.

  • In Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem the enemy Pegasus Knights appeared to be male, making them the first known male Pegasus Knights in the series. In Fire Emblem: Fates, the class has become unisex and Subaki is the first male Pegasus unit under the player's control.
  • In Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken the enemy Pegasus Knights appear female and are otherwise indistinguishable from allied Pegasus Knights, except that they use the male mounted formula for AID, giving them the highest AID of any unit in the game, 20.
  • Pegasus Knights are generally female due to the myth of the unicorn, which states that only pure-hearted maidens could approach Pegasi. Pegasi within the series alternate between being traditional pegasi or an alicorn/winged unicorn.
  • Pegasus knights have had the ability to dismount in two games: in Mystery of the Emblem they become Knights when dismounted and in Thracia 776 they merely become a dismounted version of Pegasus knights; In both games they can only use swords in this state.
