The Black Mage is a recurring job class in the Final Fantasy series. They make their first appearance as one of six available job classes in the first installment of the series.

The appearance and backstories of Black Mages differ in each Final Fantasy game, but their appearance in most installments in the series usually consists of the same elements commonly found between iterations; namely their blue robes and tan-coloured wizard hats, with the hat's shadow obscuring the Black Mage's facial features, thus making only their glowing yellow eyes visible. They are the polar opposite of the White Mage class; while White Mages specialize in Holy and healing magic, Black Mages specialize in offensive black magic as well as status spells intended to immobilize or otherwise hinder enemies.

In M.U.G.E.N, Black Mage was made by Gudine.

Gudine's version


Black Mage is a character that tries to go for a custom style based on the Super Smash Bros. series, being based on, and using sprites from, Super Smash Flash 2, complete with a Smash Attack mechanic. The character may seen hard to play at first, but can become a dangerous tool if on the right hands.
