* ''Dream Festival!!'' works under the same conditions as ''Aikatsu'' does; that is to say, they use the same card system in order to transform the singers and give them new outfiits.

* ''VideoGame/PrettyRhythmAuroraDream'' has the main main characters as ice skaters instead of idol singers, and they lack Older Alter Egos, but otherwise the show fits the genre pretty well.

Its spinoff series ''VideoGame/PriPara'' and male focused movie series ''KING OF PRISM by Prettyrhythm'' are equally as magical.

* The TropeMaker was ''Anime/MagicalAngelCreamyMami''. A girl aids an alien and is granted the ability to become a (just barely) adult. She very quickly realizes that she has no idea what to do with herself as a grownup, then stumbles across a talent contest/scouting mission. Her powers give her an invisible band and special effects, and she gets hired as an idol singer. HilarityEnsues, though there are more serious bits.
** ''Anime/MagicalStarMagicalEmi'': Although Emi is a Stage Magician rather than an Idol Singer, her story still follows the Magic Idol Singer template. She even dabbles in Idol Singer territory by combining her magic shows with musical accompaniment.
** ''Anime/MagicalStageFancyLala'' is another classical version of the MagicalGirl IdolSinger, using the powers granted by her {{Weasel Mascot}}s to get an adult disguise and a beautiful singing voice.

* The ''{{VideoGame/Warcraft}} 3'' custom campaign Wanderers of Sorceria features one such character: beloved idol singer by day, MagicalGirl fighting crime in the name of justice and love by night.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' features the Songstress as one of the Dresspheres that the three heroines can don - gaining magical dancing and singing abilities. This is tied to the plot - as Yuna uses these powers to help influence peace in Spira. Additionally the original wearer of the Songstress dressphere Lenne was one too - she was a famous singer that was also a summoner fighting on the front lines in the Machina War.

* Athena Asamiya from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' is an IdolSinger with PsychicPowers, and she uses the KOF tournaments as a way to both fight for justice and boost her popularity. By the time KOF 96 starts, she's already a massive hit around the world.
* [[CuteMute Sona]] from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is a Magic Idol ''Performer''. Even [[EvilGenius Swain]] admits her music is lovely when he saw her solo tour. Funny enough, when she's with her band, she steps out of the spotlight and sticks to rhythm guitar; ''[[EvilSorceror Karthus]]'' is the lead singer.

* Alison "ComicBook/{{Dazzler}}" Blaire of the ''ComicBook/XMen,'' a singer with the ability to turn light into sound and vice versa. She can use most powers seen with manipulators of sound or light. This also results in her shows looking ''freaking awesome.'' Naturally, she changes with what sort of music is popular at the time; when introduced, she was billed as the first disco-themed superhero!
** She's also a DiscOneNuke in the arcade game; her sonic explosions will clear a ''lot'' of {{Mooks}} from your path. In the comics at the time, she was actually ''far'' more likely to use {{WesternAnimation/Jem}}-esque effects.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Jem}}'' would probably be the closest western counterpart of the classic Magic Idol singer, only she's already an adult and uses highly-advanced technology instead of magic to achieve the disguise.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/LoliRock LoliRock]]'' has elements of both this and MagicalGirlWarrior. The main characters use their innate magical singing talents in order to maintain thriving popstar careers for their civilian identities.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' has elements of this building on the MagicalGirlWarrior tropes present in the previous ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' film by making said magic only work when the girls perform in their band since Twilight Sparkle went back to Equestria. Additionally the villains are Equestria's versions of the [[Enthralling Siren Sirens]] - banished to the human world. Still able to cause discord with their voices, they pass themselves off as a GirlGroup in the school's battle of the bands.
