The World Figure Skating Championships is an annual figure skating competition sanctioned by the International Skating Union in which elite figure skaters compete for the title of World Champion. This event is considered the most prestigious of the ISU Championships. Skaters compete in the discplines of men's singles, ladies singles, pairs, and ice dancing. The 2007 championships were held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium in Tokyo, Japan from March 19 to 25.

Figure skaters are entered into the championships by country. Each International Skating Union Member (national association) may enter one skater or team in each event. Some countries are permitted to enter 2 or 3 participants if their skaters performed well at the previous championship.

Because of the large number of entries at the World Championships, only the top 24 single skaters and top 20 pairs advanced to the free skate after the short program. In ice dance, the top 30 couples in the compulsory dance advanced to the original dance, and the top 24 couples after the original dance advanced to the free dance.

To compete, skaters must have reached the age of 15 by July 1st of the previous year. The 2007 World Junior Figure Skating Championships was the corresponding competition for skaters who are not age-eligible for senior worlds.
