Disgaea Wiki

The Armor Knight (also known as the Heavy Knight) is a recurring humanoid class in the Disgaea series, first introduced in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories.


They are dark skinned demons wearing thick armor and leather they are tall with very imposing figures and sharp eyes. They also have a thick collar that covers their mouth.


They are graduates from the Knight Academy, which trains knights who protect the royal families. Boys enter the academy when they're young and learn the required skills, manners, and courage to be a knight. They are rewarded for their training with a special suit of armor.


Heavy Knights are characterized by their low movement, but very high defensive power. They also boast the highest throwing range of all classes as well.
