Black Flan(ブラックプリン, Burakkupurin?, lit. Black Pudding), also known as Dark Flan and Pudding, is a recurring enemy in the series. It first appeared in the original Final Fantasy, inspired by the "Black Pudding" ooze monster from Dungeons & Dragons. It was given its own original shape and paired with other flans of its own clan since Final Fantasy II.
