* Isis of ''Myth/EgyptianMythology'' is the goddess of magic, as well as healing and motherhood, and is portrayed as elegant, wise, and the representation of the pharaoh's power. She is also known as "[[IKnowYourTrueName She Who Knows All Names]]", a fearsome title because using names for casting Egyptian magic spells was believed to give one great power, for being the only one who knows Ra's true name.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''TabletopGame/DiscworldRolePlayingGame'' invokes and parodies the trope in the person of the primary example character, Jemzarkiza of Krull. She's a powerful sorceress with effective offensive powers who even carries a wand to focus her powers. She's also a slightly nerdy scholar who's persistently irritated by her reputation as a lady of black magic.

* Charmcaster's design and personality in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' fit this trope, although not in any other series of the franchise.

* Scarlet Witch from ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. Her magical powers manifest as dark red energy bolts, with hugely destructive effects both physically and psychically. Her combat outfits are also more feminine in appearance compared to fellow Avenger [[ActionGirl Black Widow's]], with a fondness for dresses and fashionable jackets, and she usually carries herself with a calm, contemplative demeanour.

* Melisandre the Red from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' fits the personality aspect ([[spoiler:and becomes something of a mentor to Jon Snow during ''A Dance With Dragons'']]), but as part of a low-magic setting she's usually limited to soothsaying, illusion and giving birth to deadly [[LivingShadow Living Shadows]]. Given that she's one of a handful of people to show outright supernatural abilities at ''all'', however, that says something. Her powers increase near the Wall, apparently allowing her to take out an eagle with a fireball.

Physically, [[SquishyWizard she'll be weaker than the melee type fighters]], and will usually be equipped with a rod or ranged weapon. [[GuysSmashGirlsShoot Very rarely she will have a melee weapon]], but it will be weaker or less impressive than the hero's. Her primary combat role is to [[GlassCannon unleash destructive]] {{Black Mag|e}}ic, although she will occasionally have secondary healing, buffing, or debuffing abilities, as well. Occasionally, she will be a MagicKnight, in which case she is also a LadyOfWar.
