* '''TheChick:''' The White Magician Girl is classically female and always feminine. {{Tomboy}}s, {{Sweet Polly Oliver}}s, and {{Bifauxnen}} need not apply. Their femininity will usually be emphasized in her character design with the use of long hair and overtly feminine clothing, such as dresses or robes. Male analogs, which are rare, will mimic the same gentle appearance, sometimes to the extent of wearing long robes and long hair (or perhaps a suitably pious hat).

*** Silque is the first healer to appear in Alm's route and she fits in quite well with her kind and plucky personality.

to:

*** Silque is the first healer to appear in Alm's route and she fits in quite well with her kind and plucky personality. However, she focuses less on healing spells and more on support magic like [[TelePortation Warp]] and [[SummonMagic Invoke]].



*** ''Echoes'' offers a subversion in Faye, who ''can'' become a Cleric but has other possible reclass options.

*** ''Echoes'' offers a subversion in Faye, who ''can'' become a Cleric but has other possible reclass options. In fact, her ''FE Cipher'' cards depict her solely as ''[[ActionGirl a Pegasus Knight]]''.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' has examples on both routes:
*** Silque is the first healer to appear in Alm's route and she fits in quite well with her kind and plucky personality.
*** Genny, the first healer in Celica's route, is shy and gentle and a bit insecure.
*** Tatiana, the Saint recruited later in Alm's route, is a bit clumsier than average but fits in perfectly otherwise, plus she has exclusive access to Fortify aka the most powerful healing spell in the game.
*** ''Echoes'' offers a subversion in Faye, who ''can'' become a Cleric but has other possible reclass options.

* Yaobikuni from ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', who is a YamatoNadeshiko LadyOfWar, is the master of buffs and has PsychicPowers. At least she has two attack skills, unlike poor [[WhiteMage Seimei]] who only has one.
** While we're at it, Seimei himself. He is very kind and level-headed, if not [[TheStoic stoic]] and specializes in buffs, debuffs and defense. Oh, and he's quite the [[{{Bishonen}} handsome]] [[LongHairedPrettyBoy man]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Mirage Casters in ''VideoGame/ValthirianArc1'' fit this trope quite well, as a class of female healers who seem to be incredibly sweet and kind (though their uniformly black hair does break the aesthetic a bit). [[VideoGame/ValthirianArc2 The second game]] plays with this trope by replacing Mirage Casters with Medicae, who can be of any gender and temperament.

** All these may be preceded by the White Mage of the original ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Final Fantasy]]'', an early example of the character design, to the [[FeaturelessProtagonist extent any gender can be determined]]. For a lot of young gamers in 1987, when ''Final Fantasy'' was released, the original White Mage party member appears to be gender neutral with a simple white and red theme and a hood drawn up, covering most of the face. Ambiguous gender, for a lot of players [[MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial defaults to male.]] When your party "matures" and upgrades to [[PrestigeClass prestige classes]] the White Mage's hood comes down, giving new perspective of the White Wizard with [[http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQWuDvhvG-tqr_no_Km-EMT3VKqWGiSKhmE9jVJ_3-6TWkof7yS5nxSuw cascading red hair, thick eyebrows, and strong, lantern jaw.]] This was taken by many to be TheReveal that the White Mage was a woman, much like recent contemporary ''[[{{Metroid}} Metroid's]]'' Samus Aran.

* 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.
