* While Mercy of ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}'' uses nanomachines rather than magic, she otherwise fits this trope, being a healer with a strong angel aesthetic and is the most feminine of the female cast.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'': A fact present in several of these games is that one of your first allies will be a Cleric (on-foot female WhiteMage) or a Priest (on-foot male WhiteMage), and some rounds later you'll 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 and Priests (they can also promote from the all-male Monks, which use offensive magic instead of staves)).

*** 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 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 and has 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.

*** Julia, Deirdre'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]].
*** Nanna is another one whose qualifications are borderline, and perhaps in some ways dependent on her heritage. She's a Troubador, which means [[MagicKnight Sword and Staff]], but due to her mother's bloodline she's at the very least guaranteed to get a decent Strength growth, which could be very good with the right father. Her mother ''doesn't'' give Pursuit, however, so with a father that fails to remedy this in favor of focusing on other aspects, she could qualify, especially with her Charisma ability which causes her mere ''presence'' to give a 10% boost to accuracy and avoid to all units within a three-tile radius. (In particular, if Lex is her father, his ridiculous Defense and HP growths combined with the Elite ability for quicker leveling up and lack of Pursuit turns her into a CombatMedic, able to deal decent damage if needed but more importantly able to ''take hits'' and stay near the front lines, healing and buffing the main fighters with Charisma.) Personality definitely fits.
*** 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 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.

fits since she's gentle and calm but not exactly willowy.

*** Natasha, a Cleric who joins up early in the game. Lacks any offensive magic at first, is a DefectorFromDecadence who hails from the country whose leadership is the antagonists, and quickly manages to win a powerful hired sword to switch sides.

*** Lissa and Maribelle are two. Note, though, the former can promote to War Cleric and also wield axes and hammers.

** Rosa from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' (also a DistressedDamsel) was almost a prototype for the breed, except her non-magical archery was often a match for some melee characters. She could wield a staff as well, but her best weapons were bows and arrows.

* Leylia from ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'' seems to personify this trope. However. in ''Chronicles of the Heroic Knight'' she shows she's not above using bladed weapons with brutal efficiency when the situation calls for it.

* '''Caring and compassionate:''' White Magician Girls have nurturing, motherly tendencies that tie-in with their feminine appearance and white magic. Very often they act as TheChick and TheHeart of their party. Common personality types include being ThePollyanna, TheIngenue, ProperLady, YamatoNadeshiko, or an AllLovingHero. More rarely, they may be a PluckyGirl. White Magician Girls are almost never a straight GenkiGirl, {{Tomboy}}, or {{Tsundere}} type, although mild tendencies are not disqualifiers.
