IX

Black Waltz 3-FFIX
I exist only to kill!
—Black Waltz 3

The three Black Waltzes (黒のワルツ, Kuro no Warutsu?) are special, winged black mages manufactured by Zorn and Thorn in Final Fantasy IX to apprehend Princess Garnet. They are many times more powerful than regular black mages, but their vast magical power means they have a shorter life expectancy, and are more volatile in nature.

ProfileEdit

Each Black Waltz seems to specialize in a certain element, although they have access to each others'. Black Waltz 1 uses mainly ice-based magic, Black Waltz 2 uses mainly fire-based magic, and Black Waltz 3 uses mainly thunder-based magic.

EtymologyEdit

The waltz is a ballroom dance that is performed to triple time, meaning it will have three beats per measure or some number divisible by three. This is how Zidane knows there are only three Black Waltzes and no more, as Steiner initially feared.

TriviaEdit

  • The logo of the progressive metal band, the Black Mages, features a Black Waltz. The logo has appeared in all three studio albums released by the band.
  • In Final Fantasy XI, a specific player gesture associated with the Black Mage job involves sprouting large black wings and levitating above the ground for several seconds, quite possibly alluding to the Black Waltzes.
