This page is rather inaccurate as the red mage was literally a Jack-of-All-Stats including physical, even if he can learn both spell types you're not a red mage until you can use a blade as well, and the class is like this in every game, average everything letting them cover many roles, not just a mage. Someone who can only learn both magics isn't a red mage they always have specialization in one of them and they are only lackluster in the other. In fact even Bravely Defaults Red mage has B ratings with most weapons and can make for a decent fighter as well as a mage.

Shouldn't Mutually Exclusive Magic be in effect as a prerequisite for The Red Mage to exist? in any setting where magics are not mutually exclusive, it is only a specialization issue, leading to the Master of None trope and related tropes

I would like some clarification as well. Is this trope to describe a "Magical The Mario" who uses both white and black magic, a Master of None specifically regarding magic use, or a character who is given Jack-of-All-Trades who turns out to be a newbie bait Crutch Character?
