White Magic (白魔法, Shiro Mahō?), sometimes shortened to White, Wht Mag or Wht Magic, and referred to as White Magick in the Ivalice Alliance, 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 is usually some strategic magic in the skill set. In titles that feature the job system, White Magic is commonly associated with the White Mage Job class, but is also usually available to Paladins, Red Mages, Seers and Sages.

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

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