What is the bishop in chess?

The bishop in chess is the piece that sits on either side of the king and queen when the board is set up. The bishop moves diagonally. The bishop can move as far or as close as it would like along this diagonal. While moving along the diagonal, if the bishop hits another piece it must stop. If the piece is of the other color the bishop may "capture" this piece and remove it from the board. The bishop acquires the square that the enemy piece was residing upon. If the piece in the bishop's way is of the same color, the bishop must stop on one of the squares before the piece which interrupt it's path.

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.
