Black Magic (黒魔法, Kuro Mahō?) is an ability type in Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and part of the Magic category.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The Black Magic school is focused on offensive spellcasting, striking enemies with elemental magic and status ailments. Save for Holy, there is a Black Magic spell for every element in the game. At higher levels Black Magic spells can hit multiple times and carry multiple elements.

Notable abilities in the Black Magic school include: The "Chain" series which hit a single target four times; Meteor, which strikes all enemies for non-elemental damage; Flare, which deals five hits of non-elemental damage; and numerous Rarity 6 abilities, the first two of which were Ultima and Meltdown.
