* Leylia from ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'' appears like this trope initially, being a kind healer cleric and all, in but ''Chronicles of the Heroic Knight'' she shows she's not above using bladed weapons with brutal efficiency when the situation calls for it.

* 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.

* In ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'', healing abilities so far seem to be exclusive to female classes, with most of the healers as nice girls, [[spoiler: except for Aranea]]

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. In the ''very'' rare cases where she uses a bladed weapon, it's usually a [[KnifeNut knife]] or [[RoyalRapier rapier]] (latter is common if she's also a [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]]) at ''largest''. 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.

*** Despite her superior WhiteMagic, Eiko is absolutely ''not'' a White Magician Girl. She's aggressive, tomboyish, and her flirting as cheesy and annoying as Zidane's [[note]] In fact, it convinced Zidane to go easier on Dagger in the future [[/note]].

* Goldmoon, from the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' series, is a prototypical example of this, the bearer of a powerful magical staff who sought to inspire the people to a return to faith in the gods. She is the High Priestess of her people. Goldmoon is a nurturing being and an encouraging and persuasive speaker. Her attire, however, is atypical, as she is a ''barbarian'' noble and cleric.

* Unithien Greyrain/Earthaven of ''TheGamersAlliance'' is a sweet and caring priestess of [[GodOfGood Cardia]] who specializes in healing spells and only directly fights when it's absolutely necessary- that is, until she [[CynicismCatalyst goes off the deep end]] courtesy of a combination of decades-spanning trauma, [[SirensAreMermaids Vellamo's]] manipulation, and getting DrunkOnTheDarkSide off of her increasing arcane powers. After this, she becomes a much darker character on top of becoming more willing to use her magic to hurt and kill, moving away from this trope in both personality and combat role.
