Black Mage is a starting newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Y and one of the game's two representatives for the Final Fantasy series (not including Agnes, who represents the spin-off game Bravely Default).


Black Mage in his home series is a glass cannon archetype; capable of dealing incredible amounts of damage, but having little to no defensive stats and the lowest HP of any class. This translates to his gameplay in Smash Bros.; his moves possess either high damage, high knockback, or both, especially in the case of magic-based attacks, but he is incredibly easy to KO, as he is very light, has only 2 short jumps, and is a bit slow in terms of walking and running speeds.

The primary strategy for Black Mage is to counteract these weaknesses through all-out assault on opponents, never showing a slight bit pf mercy, for even a minor break from attacking could spell Black Mage's doom.
