* In Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn'' the titular heroine fights Nightflame, a sword-wielding sorcerer who can open dimensional portals, use fire-spells, fly and steal souls. Since Supergirl is vulnerable to magic, it is not an easy battle for her.

The term comes from jRPGs, particularly the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series, and is in stark contrast with its meaning in European tradition which is "[[EvilSorceror a user of]] [[BlackMagic evil magic]]".

* Sira of ''{{Albion}}''. Her spells are destructive ([[GameBreaker coming dangerously close to becoming an instant 'I Win' button]]), but she's rather gentle and friendly. The spells themselves are also nature related as she conjures thorns, fungi, and ice splinters that grow like flowers.

* DonaldDuck is somewhere between this and TheRedMage in the ''KingdomHearts'' series, his starting staff even resembles the classic ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' Black Mage. The MagicKnight hero Sora's spells tend to pack more of a punch, though.

* Trisana Chandler from TamoraPierce's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic''. This is actually a downside of winning the SuperpowerLottery: Her extremely powerful weather magic (where "weather" also includes ''natural disasters'') would put her in high demand as a war mage, but she'd prefer to be a healer, something which she's simply ''too strong'' for. To paraphrase, "it would be like performing surgery with a mallet."
