'''Basic Trope''': A [[TheMedic healing specialist]] who is female and kind-hearted.
* '''Straight''': [[MysteriousWaif Melody]] is a [[GoodShepherd kind-hearted priestess]] and [[TheMedic healer]] who fights with a staff or bow and is contrasted with [[BlackMage Tom]].
* '''Exaggerated''': Melody is a [[ActualPacifist complete pacifist]] who has no attacks at all, only healing spells.
* '''Downplayed''': Melody is a [[CombatMedic primarly a healer but carries a sword for self-defense]] and is more likely to [[AngerBornOfWorry berate Tom for his injuries because she carries about him so much.]]
* '''Justified''':
** PersonalityPowers are a rule of the universe.
** Melody is too weak or unskilled to wield anything heavy and too frail to fight but still wants to help others. She does this by studying healing magic and encouraging her team.
* '''Inverted''':
** The WhiteMagicianGirl is an outspoken, HotBlooded {{Tsundere}} who [[HyperspaceMallet whacks the hero with her staff]] when she's angry.
** BlackMagicianGirl
** TheMedic is a cranky old man.
* '''Gender Inverted''': Melody, an ActionGirl, is accompanied by Christopher, a NonActionGuy with HealingHands who she allows to come because he can heal and she can't.
* '''Subverted''':
** Despite her gentle nature, Melody is a powerful WarriorMonk and kung-fu expert.
** Melody is a feminine healer who's the hero's LoveInterest... but her gentle exterior hides a BitchInSheepsClothing.
** Melody's gentle and sweet...until [[BreakTheCutie something horrible happens to her and she snaps]]. The emotional turbulence makes her magic dangerous.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** ...and she also happens to be the [[CombatMedic best healer]] anyway.
** She discovers that GoodFeelsGood and [[BecomingTheMask decides to make the gentle exterior her interior]].
** She recovers from the HeroicBSOD with the PowerOfLove and [[ThePowerOfFriendship friendship.]]
* '''Parodied''': The WhiteMagicianGirl is an [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan obnoxious and petty person who constantly bludgeon people with her staff and then heal them just because they annoy her and she's easily annoyed.]] People fawn over her anyway, because she's an avatar of a goddess of healing, who is ''also'' a jerk to other gods.
* '''Zig Zagged''': When Melody first appear, she's a to-the-trope WhiteMagicianGirl. Then after a story event, she becomes a BlackMagicianGirl who spams Meteor Shower. But wait! Her healing spells are still the best amongst the party members, and [[BoringButPractical using it is more practical to win battles than Meteor Shower]]. Then after another story event, her magic goes away and she is forced to fight physically just like anyone else... but then, she is still one of the better healers (this time without magic), and a kind person.
* '''Averted''':
** The sole healer in the party is Albrecht ThePaladin, who uses a sword and is [[{{Rated M For Manly}} noticeably male]].
** Melody has healing powers... and is also TheHeroine who can be quite the [[GoodIsNotNice rude and curse spewing]] badass.
* '''Enforced''': "Without someone who is dedicated to heal him, TheHero of this story won't stand a chance against those heavy-hitting monsters. While we're at it let's make her his [[BroodingBoyGentleGirl gentle and compassionate]] LoveInterest for the PeripheryDemographic. "
* '''Lampshaded''': "No, please, have mercy on m...wait, you're a female, and you're wearing a medic's robe? False alarm, guys, she's just a healer. She's not gonna kill us!"
* '''Invoked''': Melody is the TeamMom and so she decides to become a white magician girl to heal her friends wounds and otherwise take care of them.
* '''Exploited''': [[AvengersAssemble When recruiting an adventurer team]] Bob appeals to Melody's compassionate nature and their need for a skilled healer.
* '''Defied''': HealThyself.
* '''Discussed''': TheHero, hoping to learn more about his crush, asks Melody about her choice of weapon. She explains that the MagicStaff is useful for healing and, if she needs to defend herself, it follows her dogma of doing no harm. "I'd rather heal than hurt."
* '''Conversed''': "Ever notice how in these {{RPG}}s, there's usually that meek and gentle healer girl who ends up with TheHero?"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** 1) To be a WhiteMagicianGirl, one need to [[TrainingFromHell endure a lot of both physical and mental training]]. It's not easy to act calm and heal people in the middle of battle. Few people endured this training, and those that do are almost always {{Stepford Smiler}}s.
** 2) Melody would much rather have taken a more [[ActionGirl physical role]], but because of her society's [[StayInTheKitchen limited roles for women]] WhiteMagicianGirl is the only way she's allowed to participate at all. She's bitter about this, and it interferes with the calm and compassion required for the job.
** 3) Melody's healing powers rely on [[ThePowerOfLove love]]...but, it's a [[EquivalentExchange two-way street]]. Without love in her life, her power causes her [[LoveHurts pain]], making her cold and distant from others.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** 1) Only honestly gentle and caring people are eligble for the position and only {{Plucky Girl}}s graduate from the training. Stepford Smilers are viewed as risky because their mask might break at a bad time.
** 2) Melody realizes that her role is one of the (if not the) most important on the battlefield, and she changes society by using this fact to her advantage. Soon, [[SilkHidingSteel the gentle and supportive healer is the de-facto leader]]. Alternatively, Melody invokes DoctorsOrders.
** 3) All White Magician Girls [[SwordAndSorcerer are paired with a warrior]] she is romantically compatible with in the hopes that they will become a BattleCouple.
