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.

* Mr. Lee, played by {{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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', younger characters tend to have American accents while older, wiser mentor figures tend to have Asian accents regardless of what nation they are from. Iroh is the most prominent example. He was originally also played by {{Mako}}.
