Black Mages (黒魔道士 kuromadōshi, or くろまどうし in earlier games without kanji support) are one of the main and most iconic classes in the Final Fantasy series. They are characterized by their distinctive appearance of blue robes and a face shrouded in shadow beneath their pointed hat and their experience in Black Magic, which consists of various offensive, elemental spells. Some of the most common spells they use are Fire, Blizzard, and Thunder. Their high MP is balanced out by low physical attacks and HP. Black Mages often wield a rod or a staff. The first Black Mage of the series is the unnamed character from Final Fantasy.

Although the Black Mage class typically consists of humans, other species have taken on the class. In Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, Moogle and Nu Mou start off with Black Mage as an available class. In Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon, the class is available for Chocobo.
