It's Time For...

Random bad guy spotlight!!!

Today i'm going to talk about one of my most beloved bad guys of all time. He's a mysterious figure, an enigma shrouded in mystery. That villain is The Black Knight of Fire Emblem's Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn!

A fearless, godlike foe, the Black Knight defines invincible. Poor Zihark didn't stand a chance T-T
Unbeatable to every unit in the game... Except Ike of course! 

So why exactly IS the Black Knight, Rider of Daein, unbeatable? See that heavy, black armor that his whole body is encased in? Its literally impenetrable. Blessed by Ashera, the Goddess of Order, only weapons that are also blessed "...can so much as scratch it." as quoted by the Black Knight himself. 

Although the reveal of his identity in Radiant Dawn was an utter disappointment for me, along with his main reason for murdering Commander Greil, the Black Knight remains one of my favorite villains in all of gaming. Heck, a freaking castle fell on him and he survived. That takes some badassery.           

Have a great day!
