* Mantis from ''ComicBook/{{Avengers}}'' and several other Marvel franchises who is half-Vietnamese and was raised in an oriental Temple of the Priests of Pama, becoming an adept of Eastern mysticism gifted with superpowers. She is a rare case when ethnic stereotypes do not spoil the character: she is seductive (to the point of [[AsianHookerStereotype working as a prostitute at a certain period of her life]]), she goes barefoot (bearing association with Asian martial arts), and almost always [[ThirdPersonPerson refers to herself in the third person]] (which is also a common practice in Eastern religions). Nonetheless, she is a very smart, independent and strong-willed character whose depiction is not in the least patronizing.

Unlike the MagicalNegro, the Magical Asian is not always nice to his white protégé. It is common for the Magical Asian to put his student through a number of demeaning and seemingly pointless tasks. However, it always turns out that there is a purpose to these tasks that helps get his lesson across. [[TheKarateKid Mr. Miyagi's]] famous "WaxOnWaxOff" routine is one of the best known examples. This tendency is possibly related to AsianRudeness.

* Chirrut from ''RogueOne'' is pretty much this exactly if you just substitute the Force for the source of 'wisdom'.

* Mr. Lee, played by {{Creator/Mako}}, in the ''Karate Kid'' ripoff ''Film/{{Sidekicks}}''. His own version of WaxOnWaxOff is throwing raw dumpling dough at his student and giving him a demeaning nickname. He is also somehow able to teleport a lit cigarette into the pocket of a racist who insulted him.
* The Indian characters in ''Film/EatPrayLove'', who teach spiritual lessons to Julia Roberts' character.
* The nameless monk in ''Film/BulletProofMonk''.
* Pretty much every Chinese character in ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''. For some reason, a restaurant owner, a maitre'd, and a Chinatown tour guide are all experts in Chinese [[AllAsiansKnowMartialArts martial arts]] and sorcery.
