The Warrior of Darkness was a supporting character from Final Fantasy III who served to keep the balance of light and darkness. The Warriors of Darkness saved the World of Darkness from the Cloud of Darkness alongside the Warriors of Light. Later, however, when the Cloud returned, the Dark Warriors were turned into beasts for the new Warriors of Light to fight. After being freed from their monstrous bodies, they sacrificed their lives to weaken the Cloud of Darkness so the Light Warriors could defeat her.

In the Dissidean Wars, there were several Warriors of Darkness. They aligned with neither side, instead observing and assisting both sides attempting to keep the balance between the two groups. They were removed however, after being caught in the crossfire of a battle between the whole of both sides warriors near the end of an early cycle after they tried to interfere.


Warrior Of Darkness
The Warrior of Darkness’ basic attire is a monochrome armour with red highlights equipped with two katana. In EX Mode, the Warrior gains a shadowy aura and his weapons and armour become completely black.

The Warrior's alternative costume 'Bronze Armour' dresses him in the armour worn in the PSP/DS version of Final Fantasy III.

His 3rd costume 'Black Armour' resembles the Dark Knight class outfit from the DS/PSP version of Final Fantasy III.

The Warrior of Darkness’ manikin Counterfeit Shadow is Green


The Warrior of Darkness is a Knight of Nothing who fights by relentlessly attacking the opponent’s Brave points to reduce them to as low as possible. By fighting in this style the Dark Warrior is able to have massive amounts of Brave at their disposal. Like their counterpart the Onion Knight, they can chain some Brave attacks into Brave attacks and are relatively speedy (although not as fast as Onion Knight). However, due to the strategy used, The Dark Warrior has a limited amount of HP attacks.
