Paladin is a set of Lances that can be wielded by Xaldin in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to Paladin+.


A Paladin Lance's shaft is black in the center and silver at the ends, with the two sections divided by small, rose-colored rings. The lower blade is indigo with silver edges and shaped like an arrow cross. The upper blade is also indigo with silver edges, but longer and with a vaguely rectangular blade. It also has a diamond-shaped cut taken out of its center.

A paladin refers to one of the twelve peers of Charlemagne's court. In other words, a paladin is a dragon warrior. It is also the name of a recurring Job class in the Final Fantasy series as a Light-oriented class excelling at aerial tactics.


Paladin’s ground combo starts with a sideways slash using one Lance, followed by a downward diagonal slash using the other Lance. Xaldin then swings his lances from the same starting point upward to two far points in a "V" formation, and ends the combo with a scissor-like attack, where all six of his Lances thrust forward, cross each other and emit "X"-shaped shockwaves.

The aerial combo consists of a downward diagonal slash using one Lance, followed by a thrust of all six Lances forwards at once in a pointed, star-like shape. This weapon has no Y-Combo.
