The Wight Knight (also known as the Right Knight) is the former lover of Princess Mona and the subject of a nursery rhyme told to by Princess Simona by her old nursemaid. He, years in the past, was transformed by Morag and forced into a slumber for what the demoness believed to be eternity.

However, after the Gittish Empire caused an earthquake when they attempted to destroy the Observatory as well as the Realm of the Almighty, he was awoken and immediately headed to what he thought was Brigadoom to seize who he thought was his Princess Mona. He defeats the entire palace guard and demands that the King of Stornway send Princess Simona to Loch Storn. By the time the Hero arrives in Stornway, the king has already put up a notice, desperate for somebody to rid his kingdom of this dark knight. After arriving and waiting at Loch Storn until after dusk, the Hero and his companions face off against the Knight.

His humiliation after he realizes that the princess in Stornway was not Mona spurs him to travel to Zere to inquire as to which way Brigadoom is. After being informed by the Hero where the fallen kingdom is located, he goes ahead of the party and arrives at the throne room, only to discover that the earthquake had also awoken Morag. As the Hero enters the room, the Knight falls victim to one of Morag's most potent curses and is forced to kneel there until the demoness is defeated and the curse is broken. Princess Simona and a handful of royal guardsmen then arrive at Brigadoom, and Mona, through her descendent Simona, dances with the Knight one last time before his spirit departs for the afterlife.

The Wight Knight may be a reference to the game White Knight Chronicles, developed by Level-5, who also played a part in the making of Dragon Quest IX.

The Song for Right Knight[edit]

The Right Knight sets off on his steed
In search of evil he rides.
If he can defeat the terrible beast,
He'll be home to wed his bride.
The town is full of laughter,
Preparing a feast fit for a queen,
Och! But then disaster!
The Right Knight's nowhere to be seen!
Bird, north, Brigadoomward on,
Tell her that her knight is gone,
Bird, north, Brigadoomward on,
Tell her that her knight is goooone!
