Portraits

OK PortraitLuneth Portrait

This character has both melee attacks and magic attacks at his disposal, players can choose to focus on one style of play or mix both for a deadly combination. His small build makes him difficult to hit. He is also the fastest character in the game.

How to Unlock Edit

He is unlocked right at the beginning of the game.

AppearanceEdit

Onion Knight appears as a young boy of very small stature with long, blond curly hair and green eyes with beads decorating his hair. He is clad in vibrant red armor and a helmet. Like many early protagonists, his outfit is completed by a flowing cape.

Alternate appearanceEdit

  • Luneth - Onion Knight changes armor color to blue and his hair both in color and style to silver with a distinct fringe, based on the main protagonist Luneth from the DS version of Final Fantasy III.
  • Slasher - In Dissidia 012, he gains a second alternate costume based on an unnamed hero artwork by Amano: his hair changes to a white coloration and his armor to black with his helmet removed altogether.
  • Ingus - A DLC costume available through purchase in the PSN. Much like his first alternate costume, it changes his appearance to that of another character from the Nintendo DS remake of Final Fantasy III, in this case, Ignus. In his normal form, he dons a long-sleeved red jacket and black trousers and the white portion of his helmet is less furry, resembling a flower. In his Sage Mode, he dons an elaborate miter, a blue and white robe and a long flowing white cape. In Ninja Mode, his hair is exposed, showing off spiky orange hair facing forward. He wears a traditional ninja garb consisting of a red gi, black headband and matching gloves and boots.

Alternate Look Edit

For 300PP, you can buy Onion Knight's alternate look. He wears an indigo outfit and his hair changes from curly blonde to straight white hair, plus a change in eye color. Because of this, it is rumored that Onion Knight's real name might be Luneth from Final Fantasy III (DS). In the original form, he appears to look a lot like Ingus from Final Fantasy III (DS).

Abilities Edit

Onion Knight is described in the game as a Mystic Fencer. He uses swift, speedy attacks that can do consecutive damage at once. He is balanced in physical and magical abilities, giving him a good degree of versatility. However, his attacks are very predictable and the Onion Knight himself is easily punished due to the cooldown of his attacks. His attacks can be chained together after a Bravery attack. However, he doesn't learn these moves like the other characters; he has to master the Bravery attack before he can obtain the HP attack.
