Added DiffLines:

** The 5th Edition version of the Favoured Soul is the most direct Red Mage to date; as a Sorcerer subclass, they gain full access to arcane spellcasting. However, their bloodline ability allows them to draw freely from the Cleric's spell list. The result is a character that can combine Arcane and Divine Magic with ease, but lacks the broad selection of a Wizard or Cleric.

* The Order of the Red Robes from ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' are not this, despite fitting the color scheme; they're very distinctly BlackMages. The color of their robes only refers to their alignment - Neutral, rather than Good (White), or Evil (Black).

* The Order of the Red Robes from ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' are not this, despite fitting the color scheme; they're very distinctly BlackMages.Raistlin, the most iconic member of their order, is strictly a BlackMage. The color of their robes only refers to their alignment - Neutral, rather than Good (White), or Evil (Black). In a metatextual sense, one could see them serving as Red Mages in the sense they can use both Good and Evil spells, but they remain incapable of healing and divine magic.

** Promoted magic users generally gain access to attack magic (if they were staff users first) or become able to use healing staffs (if they were attack magic users) at promotion. Mist in ''[[Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' (who gains swords) is one of the few exceptions to this. Also worth noting is in ''Videogame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', the branching promotion trees means that in order to balance out classes that have the same abilities as well as skills like 'summon' and 'slayer' as the other or higher movement, certain branches were given the attractive opportunity to have more types of magic, i.e.: A sage in that game can use anima, light magic and staves, druids can use anima, dark and staves, and 3rd tier pupils can use anima, light, and dark magic. Bishops and Valkyries also mixed Light Magic with staves, while Mage Knights got Anima magic along with Staves.

** ''Videogame/FireEmblemAwakening'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' have Dark mages and Sorcerers, who mix the Anima of the mages with Dark Magic, and counts as a more offensively aligned Red Mage compared to the Sages who mix Anima with Staves to be more support based. Dark Mages also have high defense, a trait more commonly seen in physical units.

** Akihiko from ''VideoGame/Persona3'' is a JackOfAllStats version. He can inflict good damage with his electricity-aligned magic, possesses a full complement of debuffs, and can learn decent single-target healing spells.
** ''3''[='s=] Yukari has both hard-hitting wind spells and powerful healing magic.
** Yosuke in ''VideoGame/Persona4'' is also a JackOfAllStats version. He is fast and able to inflict good damage with both physical attacks and [[BlowYouAway wind-aligned]] offensive magic. He also has access to some support magic but can only learn basic healing spells.
** Yukiko from ''4'' also plays out as a Red Mage but in the SquishyWizard variant. She has one of the best damage outputs in the game (and goes even further in ''Golden'', acquiring the most powerful fire element spell possible), but also is an extremely valuable medic.
** Teddie from ''4'' [[RuleOfThree also]] is this. He has pretty good ice attacks, makes a solid medic, and can buff the entire party's attack and defense.
** Haru from ''VideoGame/Persona5'' has a diverse mix of psychic abilities, defensive spells, and ''gun'' magic. She can also cure status ailments and is the only party member other than the protagonist that is capable of learning the impressive buff skill Heat Riser.
** Makoto from ''5'' has a highly diverse moveset which includes nuclear spells, physical attacks, healing skills, and an assortment of buffs and support skills.

* Yosuke in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is a JackOfAllStats version of a Red Mage. He is fast and able to inflict good damage with both physical attacks and [[BlowYouAway wind-aligned]] offensive magic. He also has access to some support magic but is unable to learn advanced healing spells.

She has one of the best damage outputs in the game (and goes even further in Golden, acquiring the most powerful fire element spell possible) but also is an extremely valuable medic.
