* Mint in ''VideoGame/{{Tales of Phantasia}}'' is the page picture, and the purest example in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', having no damaging spells or artes whatsoever (The healers in the other games all fall under CombatMedic). Late in the game, her fairly potent arsenal of heals, cures, stunning hammers and status enhancers is capped off by the power to temporarily ''stop time''. Given, it [[UselessUsefulSpell doesn't work on bosses]], but it's [[RuleOfFun freaking]] [[RuleOfCool sweet]] [[AwesomeButImpractical to have around]].

* Mipha from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. Her magical ability, Mipha's Grace, functions much like carrying a fairy, reviving Link if he runs out of hearts while also giving him a few extra yellow hearts. In the backstory, she used her powers to heal Link of lesser injuries, and she also had a crush on him.

** Hoshido and Nohr each have one in form of the youngest princess in the royal family. Sakura is a straighter example while Elise is more of a GenkiGirl, but they both start out as only healers until they promote or reclass.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'': A fact present in several of these games is that one of the first allies will be a Cleric (on-foot female WhiteMage) or a Priest (on-foot male WhiteMage), and some rounds later the player will be able to recruit a Troubadour (mounted WhiteMage), and sometimes a Valkyrie (mounted RedMage or mounted MagicKnight), a Sage (basically the same, but on foot and with either gender), or a Bishop (Light magic user ''and'' healer that promotes from Clerics, Priests or the all-male Monks, which use offensive magic instead of staves)).

*** Adean, like most of the female characters, has a bit of PluckyGirl in her, but she gets bonus femininity points for being the latter half of a TomboyAndGirlyGirl pair with her [[SeparatedAtBirth long-lost]] [[PolarOppositeTwins twin sister]] Briggid, a Sniper who was [[RaisedByNatives adopted by a pirate chieftain]] [[PirateGirl and now serves as their leader]].
*** Deirdre might also qualify. She has [[LightEmUp light magic]] capabilities as well, but her low stats in [[GlassCannon everything other than magic]] and heavy tome make her unfit to get in any serious combat, and one of her first jobs upon arrival is to use her Silence staff to neutralize a VERY dangerous enemy mage. She's also TheIngenue and an AllLovingHero (though ironically, she also has the bloodline of the ''anti''-messiah, making her integral to the villains' plans).
*** Also in the first generation, Claud is a male example. Though he does have combat capabilities upon arrival as he is already a promoted High Priest, he doesn't have any offensive magic upon his arrival whereas he ''does'' have some of the most powerful healing staves, and can only use the most basic spells while being the only one who can use the most powerful staff.
*** In the second generation, Adean's daughter Lana is the primary one, filling the same role as her mother, although depending on who her father is she has the potential to become more of a RedMage after promotion.
*** Julia, [[spoiler: Deirdre and Alvis]]'s daughter, is borderline. Much like Claude, she starts out with the capability to use offensive magic, but no offensive magic available for her to use. She's a bit better than her mother at holding her own in combat once she gets an offensive spellbook, but this can be attributed in large part to a spell that also heals ''herself'' upon a successful hit. And she's got the personality--like most, a [[GenerationXerox carbon copy of her mother]].

*** Corple is a male example. Shows up late in the game at a low level and without any offensive abilities, but strong healing abilities (his mother Sylvia also has the Blaggi bloodline, so he'll have a bonus to staff level). If Claud is his father, he'll be probably the best healer in the game.

* Sylphiel Nels Lahda from the ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' series. She is extremely gifted at healing and protection magic compared to other users in the series, is kind and caring, and has a huge crush on the swordsman Gourry.
** And an interesting pair of inversions from the same series are Naga the Serpent and Amelia Wil Tesla Saillune. Both of them are exceptionally gifted in white magic (it [[spoiler: runs in the family]]) and are both very competent healers, yet Naga smacks of [[BlackMagicianGirl black magician girl]] due to her personality and outfit, and Amelia is very much a tomboy [[ActionGirl action girl]].

*Chana of the mine-robbers in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', noted explicitly as the only human among them who counseled against attacking Paul. The “PC Dialogue” behind this particular incident (and available directly from the author if you want it) indicates that Chana is the party's cleric and has that classic support role. Mildly ironic in that she's black.

The White Magician Girl is a StockCharacter appearing in {{Fantasy}} Literature and {{Role Playing Game}}s, acting as the party's resident healer, nurturer and [[CloserToEarth source of feminine wisdom]]. While the other party members are slaughtering opponents, the White Magician Girl is taking care of their wounds with gentleness and compassion, and congratulating them after the battle with her brilliant smile. She is often included as a female protagonist because GuysSmashGirlsShoot or as a {{Foil}} to a [[AcceptableFeminineGoalsAndTraits less traditionally feminine]] ActionGirl. She's basically the WhiteMage infused with IncorruptiblePurePureness.

* '''Takes a [[CombatAndSupport support role]] in combat:''' A White Magician Girl's primary role in combat is performing [[TheMedic healing]] and/or [[StatusBuff support]] abilities, usually through WhiteMagic. As a result, they usually have relatively poor physical combat skills. Although classic for the look, their WeaponOfChoice is not always a SimpleStaff or MagicStaff; blunt objects like [[CarryABigStick maces, scepters]], or [[DropTheHammer hammers]] are common, as are [[GuysSmashGirlsShoot ranged weapons]], such as bows.

ImprobableWeaponUser White Magician Girls are not unheard of, especially heart-shaped weapons. It's also not unknown for them to have [[TheRedMage some offensive magical capabilities]] as well, though not to the extent of a BlackMagicianGirl or LadyOfBlackMagic. One common exception is when battling the undead or demons, in which case she may possess some [[HolyBurnsEvil frighteningly powerful offensive spells that work only on those beings.]] In these cases, ff she is [[GoodShepherd some manner of priestess]], then you can count on her wielding a HolyHandGrenade.
