Black Magic (黒魔法, Kuro Mahō?), sometimes shortened to Black, Blk Mag or Blk Magic , is a recurring skill set and one of the main types of Magic in the Final Fantasy series. It focuses mostly on spells that deal direct damage, although some strategic magic is often included as well. In titles that feature the job system, Black Magic is commonly associated with the Black Mage Job class, but is also usually available to Red Mages and Sages.

Over the course of the titles, Black Magic spells have been interchanged with White Magic, Time Magic, and in Ivalice titles, a new school of magic known as Green Magick.
