Black Flan in Final Fantasy IV (3D)

Black Flan (ブラックプリン, Burakku Purin?, lit. Black Pudding), also known as Dark Flan and Pudding, is a recurring enemy in the series. It first appeared in the original Final Fantasy, inspired by the "Black Pudding" ooze monster from Dungeons & Dragons. It was given its own original shape and paired with other flans of its own clan since Final Fantasy II.

Of the four ooze enemies from the original Final Fantasy, Black Pudding is the only one that modifies the name, using the Japanese word for "pudding" (プリン, purin?). This word became the name for the Final Fantasy species, which has been localized as Flan.
