Chess

These monsters are animated statues which resemble Chess Knights with Unicorn horns. They have appeared as enemies in all of the Seiken Densetsu games following FFA and in FFA they can be found in the sprite data of the game as what would appear to be a boss judging by their size.

They stab with their horn and also use a Rush attack.
