Introduced in Dragon Quest IX

The Wight Knight is an undead knight that believes himself to be alive in Dragon Quest IX. The hero first encounters the Wight Knight on the shores of Loch Storn. The Wight Knight initially terrorizes the town of Stornway, believing the Princess Simona to be his long-lost love Princess Mona. After defeating the "Wight Knight" he asks the hero to apologize to the king of Stornway on his behalf for the misunderstanding and heads off in search of his native kingdom, Brigadoom. While he was alive, he was known as the "Right Knight.



The Wight Knight is one of the first bosses in the game, so it isn't too difficult to defeat him as long as your characters are around level 10. The strategy for this boss is first to have four characters, (however, this can also be done with just one character) so Wight Knight will not wipe you out with attacks like Multithrust (which deals four hits to random party members) and Bolt Cutter, which is a more powerful physical attack. He can heal himself with the Heal spell. It is a good idea to have a priest or a team member that knows Heal as Wight Knight has some fairly strong attacks.

Your minstrel should not use Crack in the fight, as the Wight Knight is strong against Ice, and instead heal or attack physically. They can also Egg On your warrior or other attackers.

He is weak against fire, wind and earth, so it is helpful to have a mage that uses Frizz handy. Just whittle down his health and heal up after his attacks and you should be fine.
