The only weapon they (Blade Paladins and Sword Knights) can use are swords. However, after they promote from a Blade Paladin to a Gold Knight, they can also use axes. They also have good movement, since they are mounted. They are similar to the Free Knights of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. They are also similar to Horsemen, due to their ability to use swords. There is only one Sword Knight boss, in Radiant Dawn.
