* The WeirdWest world of ''Webcomic/SixGunMage'' is built around an order of gunmages, who use magic CastFromHitpoints to enhance their aim, make their shots explode or charge them with other forms of energy, and so on. The main protagonist, Kylie, is one such gunmage. [[spoiler:It turns out she has far greater magical potential than most other gunmages, allowing her to use a specially crafted repeater to make shots, whereas the rapid fire rate and resulting drain of the repeater would kill other gunmages.]]

** Maria, a LadyOfBlackMagic in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' However, this is arguably a {{subver|tedTrope}}sion in that equipping a bow gives a character a very large penalty to magic (specifically, -70 INT/SOUL), although most people don't know this [[GuideDangIt because the penalty doesn't actually show up on the status screen, and you have to read a walkthrough to even know about it]]. In this case, equipping a bow makes her magic weaker.
** Rosa who is one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s of the WhiteMagicianGirl in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' can also wield a bow and arrow.

* Mami Tomoe from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' uses her magic powers to conjure single-shot muskets, bombards and cannons out of thin air. Sometimes in massive amounts, only to have them fire a shot each and disappear. Homura Akemi has time-control powers but her lack of offensive ability has her resort to [[SuperheroPackingHeat using ordinary firearms]] in combat. This has massive synergy with the fact that her magical shield can store an entire HyperspaceArsenal, and her [[TimeStandsStill time stop powers]] allow her to abuse said arsenal with impunity. At one point she froze time, then [[MoreDakka fired an entire army base worth of weaponry]] at an EldritchAbomination.
** The two of them battled it out with all of their magical power and GunFu skills during the movie ''Rebellion''. And it was ''awesome''.

** VideoGame/BreathOfFire3 has Momo, a Grassrunner who fights as TheRedMage for the team. She uses a giant bazooka that lets her hit as hard as the team's heaviest hitters, and knows a variety of healing, support, and attack magic. She leans a bit more towards magic; her bazooka [[PowerfulButInaccurate packs a huge punch but has terrible accuracy]], but it's easy enough to compensate for it with the right equipment.
** VideoGame/BreathOfFire4 features Ursula, who uses handguns and shotguns and is the game's [[KillItWithFire fire-magic specialist]]. Her stats tend to lean more towards physical combat, but she's no slouch with her spells either.
