Magic is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. It is fought in the second tier in the final battle, along with Tiger, Machine, and Power. According to the Final Fantasy III Nintendo Player's Guide, the second tier which includes Magic, Machine, Power, and Tiger is supposed to be a rematch of Goddess from the Warring Triad.[1] No official material support this; the idea was created by Nintendo of America.


As its name implies, Magic does almost nothing but cast spells, and knows a wide variety of spells. Fortunately, Magic is vulnerable to Silence, which will completely disable it for the rest of the battle. However, Silence will not disable its final counter-attack when killed.

Magic or sorcery is an attempt to understand, experience and influence the world using rituals, symbols, actions, gestures and language that are believed to exploit supernatural forces.


  • In the North American SNES release of the game, the sprite of Magic is slightly censored with what appears to either be shadow or shorts of some kind to cover his nakedness.
