The Final Fantasy series (Japanese: ファイナルファンタジー Fainaru Fantajī) is a series of role-playing games and the main part of the Final Fantasy franchise. The first game of the series is the Nintendo Entertainment System title, Final Fantasy, which was first released for the Famicom in 1987 before its North American release three years later, in 1990. There are currently fifteen games in the main Final Fantasy series.

The titular first game of the series was named because it was thought to be Square's final RPG, although the game ironically saved the company. Soon enough, because of Final Fantasy, Square would become one of the most successful companies to develop and publish role-playing games. The Final Fantasy series is renowned for its high production, an involving story and its music. Despite the games being part of the same series and that the sequels are numbered by a roman numeral, there is no continuity and hardly any relation between the installments besides the role-playing genre. There are some recurring in-universe elements such as Chocobos, character classes, magic spells, certain music themes (like the title screen), and a character named Cid, which, aside from the name, is a different character in each installment.

Several main series installments have their own meta-series, such as Final Fantasy VII, which is part of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII.
