The Dark Knight is a class introduced in Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance. Dark Knights are unmatched in their ability to wield the power of darkness.
Their default Evility is Ripple Impact, which causes their attacks to damage not only their primary target, but enemies adjacent to the target as well.
“A dark warrior who strikes the enemy and leaves them in blackness.”
—Short in-game description
“Knights clad in dark clothes who control the darkness. The crystal in their chest absorbs life energy and gives them power. Their potential is equal to Overlords. At one point, they sought to conquer the Three Worlds, so many want to have them for subordinates.”
