A Classic Wizard is not always a SquishyWizard, but it's common. The same with a KungFuWizard. See also TheArchmage. Compare GentlemanWizard, contrast BlueCollarWarlock. See also WitchClassic, which is in many ways the DistaffCounterpart. Compare GrandpaGod, which shares many of the aesthetics of the Wizard Classic.

* By the time of ''Film/ANewHope'', Obi-Wan Kenobi seems to have become a [[RecycledInSpace space]] version of this trope. Case in point:
** Jedi Robes - Wizardly Attire
** Lightsaber - Staff/Wand
** Force-sensitivity - Wizardry
** Is a hermit stumbled upon by a young farmboy
** Is obviously male
** Has a white beard and white hair, and is in the twilight years of his life

* The Wizards of Unseen University in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fall into this, as does Rincewind (whose association with the university varies.) Of course their "wisdom" in regards to magic mostly consists of not using it and jockeying for a KlingonPromotion or two. With the exception of Ponder Stibbons and one or two others who seem to actually do important research and get results (for example creating [[MagicalComputer Hex]] and Roundworld). Stibbons does not fully fit the trope anyway, being young, beardless and wearing a T-shirt under his robe.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': Zazzerpan from the in-story novel ''The Complacency of the Learned''. Other wizards are mentioned as well, but there's not enough information to know how closely they stick to the archetype. The Lalonde house is decorated with a frightening amount of artwork of Zazzerpan and numerous other classic wizards--these are the cause of a bizarre, passive-aggressive ([[spoiler:and completely one-sided]]) fight between Rose and her mom.
** Averted by the god tier outfits of the Mage Class.

While the term ''[[WizardsAndWitches wizard]]'' itself is often applied as a catch-all word for male magic users in fiction, the image of the classic mage as it has evolved out of Western traditions and folklore, has a number of distinct trappings and tropes. In short, this is the character most people think of when they hear the word "Wizard". Compare/contrast with AbsentMindedProfessor.
