The 2009–10 Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final was a figure skating competition in the 2009–10 season. It was the culminating competition of the 2009–10 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, a senior-level international invitational competition, and the 2009–10 ISU Junior Grand Prix, a junior-level international competition.

Skaters earned points towards qualifying for the senior Grand Prix Final at the 2009 Trophée Eric Bompard, the 2009 NHK Trophy, the 2009 Rostelecom Cup, the 2009 Cup of China, the 2009 Skate America, and the 2009 Skate Canada International. Skaters earned points towards qualifying for the Junior Grand Prix Final at each of the seven Junior Grand Prix events. The six highest ranking skaters/teams from the Grand Prix series and the eight highest ranking skaters/teams from the Junior Grand Prix met at the Grand Prix Final.

The event was held in Tokyo, Japan from December 2 to December 6, 2009. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing on the senior and junior levels.

Unlike the other events in both series, there was no compulsory dance portion of the competition. Ice dancers were ranked in the original dance starting order in reverse order of their qualification to the Final.
