The Black Mage is one of the main characters in Final Fantasy and a member of the Warriors of Light. The character is unnamed and shares a name with its job class, Black Mage. Later in the game, if the Warriors of Light complete an optional quest from Bahamut, their class is upgraded, and the Black Mage is upgraded to Black Wizard. The Black Mage is lacking in physical attacks but is capable of using most Black Magic spells.

In Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales, Black Mage is one of the job classes that cameos in the microgame Job Juggler. Like the other characters, his sprite is taken from the NES version of Final Fantasy.


Starting with the Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls release, Black Mage has ten auto-names, and each of them reference a character from another Final Fantasy game.
