Lenna from Final Fantasy V as an Oracle.

The Oracle (予言士, Yogenshi?, lit. Prognosticator; Predictor), or Mystic (陰陽士, Onmyōshi?, lit. Yin Yang User), is a job class that has appeared in only a few Final Fantasy games. They use spells that either give someone status effects or deal HP or MP damage. Oracles' abilities vary drastically between games, and as such, it is hard to say what the standard Oracle does.

The only notable Oracle in the series has been Banon from Final Fantasy VI, but he acts more like a White Mage. His Japanese job class title is "Shinto Priest" (神官, Shinkan?), with "Oracle" being a localization for the Game Boy Advance release of Final Fantasy VI. This title fits more with his healing ability, Pray.

An oracle is a person or agency considered to provide wise and insightful counsel, prophetic predictions, or precognition of the future inspired by the gods.

A practitioner of Onmyōdō is called an Onmyōji or Onmyōshi in the traditional Japanese esoteric cosmology, a mixture of natural science and occultism. It is based on the Chinese philosophies of Wu Xing and Yin and yang, introduced into Japan at the beginning of the 6th century. Onmyōshi were thought to be able to manipulate shikigami, beings from Japanese folklore. It was thought to be some sort of kami, represented by a small ghost or spirit.
