** Played straighter in the sequel ''[[Lunar2EternalBlueComplete Eternal Blue]]'' where Lemina (Mia's descendant) fits the trope by being the attack magic user and a GenkiGirl while Ronfar, the healer is...um, a brash gambling guy.

* ''Myth/TheWhiteWitchOfRoseHall'': A variation of the legend says the titular ''witch'' she learned how to perform voodoo from her Hatian nanny.
[[/folder]]



* Merrill in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'': [[GenkiGirl Genki]], {{moe}}, [[ThePollyanna optimistic]], dabbles in BloodMagic and [[DealWithTheDevil deals with demons]]. Her magic repertoire is strictly damage-dealing, and her two main specialty powers are called "[[CastFromHitPoints Blood of the First]]" and "Wrath of the Elvhen." Unusually, however, she's an adult and is both one of the nicest characters in the series and a potential LoveInterest.
* Melody Farklight in ''{{Nostalgia}}'', complete with tons of spunk (and a side helping of {{tsundere}}-ness).

* [[WebComic/{{Homestuck}} Rose Lalonde]], although she is just ''thirteen'', [[ definetely]] is an ActionGirl more powerful than [[TheHero John]] [[note]] For comparison, John did several panels just strifing with one imp, which took him three turns to defeat. [[/note]] She is also a NightmareFetishist who knows her way around that black tome of hers. While initially wise around it, when she enters the game she also gets access to ItemCrafting, she combines it with her knitting needles making the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Thorns of Oglogoth]].

Rose took out two (twice prototyped, arguably stronger) imps and an ogre with her basic weapon. [[/note]] She is also a NightmareFetishist who knows her way around that black tome of hers.

** Dark Magician Girl deserves extra credit for actually being named ''Black Magician Girl'' in Japanese, which is where the trope's name was taken from.

** As of the ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'', that status gets somewhat blurred. (Basically, we find out that EvenEvilHasLovedOnes... about ten minutes before we find out that evil with loved ones is still evil. [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds It's still hard to not feel sorry for her]].)

* LargeHam [[spoiler:Lutecia]] in ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', in sharp contrast to the more quiet WhiteMagicianGirl Caro. [[spoiler: [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS Yes]], ''[[EmotionlessGirl that]] [[DarkMagicalGirl Lutecia]]''. Looks like she was right in her belief that she'd get a "heart" once her mom revives.]]

* Pictured above: ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'''s Lina Inverse. While talented with many types of magic, she leans heavily toward offense and has a habit of tossing around an UnholyNuke capable of [[PersonOfMassDestruction leveling mountains]] when provoked.

** Chris Yukine may also count as an example, depending on how one views the MagiTech nature of the Symphogears. Her power manifests in a wide variety of bows, guns, and missiles, making her the go-to heroine for ranged attacks and massive explosions while the others fight more directly.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheKaneChronicles'' has two main examples:
** Sadie can do a lot of things with magic, but explosions are a personal favorite. She also fits the personality type; feisty and rebellious with a generous dose of snark.
** Zia's attitude is more mature, but she's still a young magician of exceptional skill and power who specializes in PlayingWithFire.

* Enid Nightshade gets upgraded to this in ''TheWorstWitch'' TV adaptation. She is shown using her magic offensively far more often that the rest of the girls. Her book personality gets swapped to become more mischievous and spunky after becoming proper friends with Mildred.
