Rosa casts a White Magic spell in Final Fantasy IV (PC).

White Magic (白魔法, Shiro Mahō?), sometimes shortened to White, Wht Mag or Wht Magic, and referred to as White Magick in the games set in Ivalice, is a recurring skill set and one of the main types of magic in the Final Fantasy series. It focuses mainly on recovery and support magic, although there can be offensive magic in the skill set. In titles that feature the job system, White Magic is associated with the White Mage class, but is also usually available to Paladins, Red Mages, Seers and Sages.

White Magic spells have been interchanged with Black Magic, Time Magic, and in Ivalice titles, Green Magick.

White Magic support spells can usually be used against undead enemies to deal damage and other adverse effects.
