    The Onion Knight was once the class for the original
    III. In the remake, there's . Onion Knights are
    now a secret class, obtainable via Mognet. See section II for how to
    obtain. Now, Onion Knights aren't Knights of Onion. They are
    what you'd call "Late Bloomers". At first, they have horrible stats.
    And their gains are even worse. But near Level 90+, more precise,
    Level 93, their gains go crazy. I'm not talking about Job Level.
    I mean LEVEL! This is a hard task , but it's very
    rewarding. They can do anything. They can equip every non- job mastery
    item, and use all magic. Like from the old III.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    II. How to Obtain [hto]
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    First get 7 people and register them on your Address Book. Have the other
    7 players do so as well. Remember, they do not have to be the same ones.
    You can have person A,B,C,D,E,F,G. And Person B could have A,U,G,K,T,Y,Z.
    So you need to send and 7 messages from them. And during which,
    you should also mail , the elder from (the town)
    and do it until you've mailed him 3 times. Now, if you've added your
    friend's , and they've added yours, either of you can go to "send Mail"
    and send each other mail. When you've done your mailing, go and mail
    for the time. This shall get you a distress signal. He'll want
    you to come back and save little kids. Oh joy... a mission.
    It'll be well worth it though, because, well you'll see.
    After you talk to , go north to the cave and keep going forward.
    You'll eventually meet the 3 kids, trapped against a wall by 3 Bombs.
    
    Bomb
    LV-16
    HP: 315
    Gil: 110
    EXP: 400
    Weakness: Ice, Water
    Att: 31
    Def: 19
    
    Not much to say here, just be prepared, around level 18+.
    If you have Blizzard or Blizzaga, it'll be easy as pie. Just be careful,
    incase they get the better of you and get first strike.
    
    When they are defeated, the kids say a "THANKS!" and leave. Wow, we risk
    our butts out there, just to get "THANKS!". Not quite. Seems like one of
    them found a Crystal Shard, and we get it. is it, the coveted and
    legendary Onion Knight job. When you get this, the level of the
    is what matters. If your is below , don't even equip it.
    Any can use it, but if they use it too early, it'll backfire.
    For more details, see III.

    Now, the Onion Knight won't be getting good, or even close to decent,
    until the Mid 90's. That's why people tend to use it later on.
    Even at a Job Level 1, a Onion Knight is considered god.
    Their Magic abilities are as high as they come, being able to use
    all sorts of magic. 
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IV. Weapons/Armor [wea]
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is where it gets . Onion Knights can wield any equipment.
    Knife, , Ice Helm, just name it. There's too many for me to list,
    so just look at other guides.The only things they can't
    equip are the Job-Mastery ones. The Onion Knight has their own mastery
    item though, the Onion Blade!
    
    Onion Blade
    Weapon Type- Sword
    Wielders- Onion Knight
    Attack- 150
    Bonuses- +5 all Stats
    How to Obtain- Get a Onion Knight to Job Level 99, and then wander around
    the land, looking for the Master Smith. If your lucky enough to find her,
    she'll make you the Onion Blade. Or just get a friend to send you the card,
    using , and visit her. I'll explain how to find her, and make her
    wander later.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    V. Magic [maho]
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Onion Knights are like Red Mages. Only they're on steroids. They can use
    melee weapons, and magic. Their MP is only that of a Sage, but the ability
    to use both Black and White Magic is useful. Sadly, they can not use Summons.
    But with 99 in both Mind and Intellect, Bladck Magic can hurt your enemies
    enough. So just give em a pool of all 8 LV's of magic and let them go wild!
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VI. Onion Equipment [onep]
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now, even though the Onion Knight's can equip every item, except the
    Job Mastery ones, stated before, they have their own armor. These are
    called the Onion Equipment. They are found by slaying Dragons, found
    in the ??? Cave, and Crystal Tower. They are very powerful, and are
    dangerous to hunt. Here's the Dragon's stats-
    
    -------------------
    Yellow Dragon

    Gil: 14666
    EXP: 60000
    Weakness: None
    Att: 150
    Def: 50
    
    The easiest to hunt, are Yellow Dragons and the hardest are Red Dragons.
    All 3 Dragons drop Onion Swords and Shields (shields).
    However, each dragon drops a armor, which are rare.
    
    Yellow Dragons- Onion Helm 4.5%
    Green Dragons- Onion 4.5%
    Red Dragons- Onion Armor 4.5%
    
    All of them have the to drop Onion Swords and Shields,
    at these %'.
    
    Onion Swords- 1.5%
    Onion Shield- 8.0%
    
    Here are the armor stats, taken from guide.

    VII. How to Train [htt]
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Onion Knights are tedious things. They have low stats until level 90+.
    This means if you train them from low levels, your HP is going to take
    a heavy blow. So the best advice is to use them after your 95+.
    Some people tend to use the Black Belt method, with High VIT to
    get to 9999 HP.
    Let me explain it a bit better. HP gains are determined by VIT.
    Melee classes have more Vitality then other classes, meaning they get
    Hp every Level up. So Black Belts and Knights gain loads more HP.
    But with Onion Knight's low VIT, they suffer low HP , which will
    scar you badly during the long run. So be careful, and ONLY use them once
    you hit 9999 HP, or your at 95+. Job level doesn't matter,
    level does. Once your 95+, and have good HP, go ahead and switch.
    Job Level takes of time, because of their low Speed.
    But once their speed is up to par, it's a bit easier.
    During the 90's, their speed will be godly allowing them to Job Level
    at the speed of light. Just do the guard, guard, guard, guard, and kill
    with these guys. It's best soloing from what I've heard, but
    training them all at once saves time.

    She gives out the Ultima Weapon, as well as the Job Mastery items and
    cards for each job. Onion Knights are no exception. But the process of
    getting her to appear, much less making you items is hard and tedious.
    So to explain it all, go read my guide on them. Shoo.

    X. Strategy [stg]
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This section tells you, (or gives ideas) on tactics you can use with
    these. Being so verastile, they're like Wild Cards. 
    
    Super Smash Fantasy Melee - All Front Row
    
    OK- Onion Blade and Onion Sword
    OK- Onion Sword and Onion Sword
    OK- Ultima Weapon and Ragnorok
    OK- Gungir and Excalibur
    
    Being able to equip some strong weapons makes this team melee focused.
    
    Magic Defenders- All Back Row
    
    OK- Onion Shield and Onion Shield- Flare, Haste, Thundaga
    OK- Onion Shield and Onion Shield- Flare, Drain, Firaga
    OK- Onion Shield and Onion Shield- Flare, Curaja, Blizzaga
    OK- Onion Shield and Onion Shield- Flare, Esuna, Arise
    
    This allows maximun defense, with a wide array of magic. Very useful for
    boss battles. Inspired by GreenSmith@aol.com
    
    Killer Hornets- All Back Row
    
    OK- Eurytos Bow and Yoichi Arrow
    OK- Elven Bow and Medusa Arrow
    OK- *Any Bow* and *Elemental Arrow of your choice*
    OK- *Any Bow* and Poison Arrow or Sleep Arrow
    
    This was inspired in Art Class, with Hornet shooters in the back row.
    During the lecture on the vanishing point and such, hornets began attacking
    by the Hornet Hitman, Jack. This team is all bow, allowing defense with 
    good damage. Not as strong, but fun yet costly. I perfer Poison Arrow,
    but sleep can be just as annoying for the opponent.
