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.

The Magical Asian, like the MagicalNegro or MagicalNativeAmerican, exists to dispense lessons to white characters using the wisdom of his people. He will usually be a [[AllAsiansKnowMartialArts martial arts master]], a practitioner of traditional Asian medicine (which in fact is ''not'' magical, but [[TruthInTelevision actually works]], and is taught in many Chinese universities alongside Western medicine), or a sage of some Eastern religion. If he is not explicitly supernatural, he will often (but not always) be so highly skilled in his art that it will [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower appear superhuman]]. Martial artists will be impossibly good fighters, the medicine-men will be able to easily diagnose and cure any illness (bonus points if he mentions chi), and the sage will be enlightened with some kind of supernatural intuition. Expect at least one scene of them meditating. They will often quote {{Ice Cream Koan}}s attributed to Buddha, Confucius, or some other famous Asian sage.
