Which piece in chess can only move diagonally?

The bishop is the only chess piece that exclusively moves in a diagonal direction. It (the bishop) moves "on a slant" or it does not move. It's that simple.The bishop can sometimes be thought of as the "opposite" of the rook, as the rook can only move across ranks or along files, meaning horizontally or vertically.Lastly, the bishop can never attack a square of a color it is not on, and for obvious reasons. It is also obvious that a player has two bishops, and each is confined to only one color of squares. This is why the bishop, in spite of its ability to reach long distances across an open board, has a bit less value than a rook. The rook can reach long distances across an open board, too, but it is not confined to a color like the bishop. Again, for obvious reasons.
