The protagonist of the series, a knight who made his way to being the leader of King Peregrine's army, during a time of peace with his tall tales of slain dragons and vanquished evil legions. In the orginal games he's shown to be brave but, in Medievil: Resurrection he's a coward, and was the first one to be slain at the Battle of Gallowmere; felled by the very first arrow fired. The King, embarrassed by this, had Fortesque buried with full military honors and spread the story of Dan single-handedly destroying Zarok and his wicked undead army. 100 years later Daniel is resurrected by Zarok's magic, giving him a chance to make amends for his ignoble death.

* BecomingTheMask: In Medievil: Resurrection. During life, he was but a coward who got his fame and fortune through luck, most of it after he died. Then he returns to life as an undead, given the opportunity to earn his "hero" status for real. And in the end, he ''does''.

Then he returns to life as an undead, given the opportunity to earn his "hero" status for real. And in the end, he ''does''.



* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Witnessing Kiya's death at the hands of Jack the Ripper]] in ''Medievil II'' completely shatters Dan's resolve. He promptly abandons his quest to flee into the sewers of London. He snaps out of it when he learns of a time machine that could allow Fortesque to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.



* TheFaceless: Zig-zagged; we ''do'' see his face after he is [[BackFromTheDead raised in his crypt]], but the face he had when he was still alive is never shown. Even in the first game's opening cutscene, when we get to witness his... *Ahem* [[SarcasmMode glorious]] death, he's wearing a helmet leaving only his eyes visible.



* FirstEpisodeResurrection: He's brought back to life to fight Zarok for real in the first game, but as a skeleton.

* GoldenSuperMode: As the result of averting NeverTheSelvesShallMeet in ''Medievil II'', Dan suddenly acquires a suit of enchanted golden armor just in time for the final stretch of the game. Functionally, it serves as an extra layer of health and can be repaired by the Spiv when it runs out.



* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: Averted in ''Medievil II''. After [[ItMakesSenseInContext journeying back in time to defeat Jack the Ripper]], Fortesque runs into his past self from the earlier mission in that area. They shake hands, and suddenly merge together to reveal a single Dan wearing [[GoldenSuperMode a suit of ornate golden armor]]. He's appropriately confused, but otherwise no worse for wear.

{{Necromancer}}: One of Zarok's specialties, and what got him banished from Gallowmere in the first place. He experimented on the dead, and when he returns to Gallowmere in ''[=MediEvil=]'', he raises the dead in an attempt to take the kingdom.
* ObviouslyEvilObviouslyEvil: Well, having demons at your beckoning and other monsters and wearing clothes reminiscent of Maleficent and Jafar does tend to pass a sorcerer off as evil.

* GeneralFailure: He's the leader of King Peregrine's army, and the first to be killed in the Battle of Gallowmere. Justified, since he's merely a FakeUltimateHero who told tall tales and lied his way to the top.

A crossbowman who was Sir Daniel's second-in-command in the Battle of Gallowmere, Canny Tim earned entry into the Hall of Heroes when he killed Zarok's champion, Lord Kardok, with a single, long-distance shot. When Dan visits the Hall for the first time, Tim gladly gives his old friend his crossbow to use. In ''Resurrection'', he also gives Daniel the stronger "Hero's Crossbow".
