** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' meanwhile pulls a double whammy. Not only the first party member to join is Morgana, one of the team's main healers, the first new Persona you acquire as part of a tutorial is once again Pixie.

Ann also joins the roster not long after, and she too knows a few healing spells to take some SP pressure off Morgana.


* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', your very first squadmate (well, not counting [[RedShirt Jenkins]]) is Kaidan Alenko, who is incidentally the only squaddie with the Medicine skill.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', your ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' doesn't have a healing ability only [[HealingPotion Omni Gel doses]] that every character could take. But there is the 'First Aid' Talent that make each dose more potent for the whole party and 'Medicine' that let you wait less between shots. Your very first squadmate (well, not counting [[RedShirt Jenkins]]) is Kaidan Alenko, who is starts with both talents and incidentally is the only squaddie with the Medicine skill.latter.


** In ''VideoGame/SeikenDensetsu3'', in a similar fashion to Secret of Mana, the first spirit you unlock, Wisp, allows Carlie, assuming she was chosen for the party, to cast healing spells. Carlie is also the default cleric of the game, though depending on who you chose for your party at the start of the game, she may be [[DownplayedTrope the last member to join (though still early in the game)]], or even [[SubvertedTrope never join you at all]]. In fact, it's entirely possible to build a party with ''[[DefiedTrope no healers whatsoever]]'' (usually consisting of [[BlackMagicianGirl Angela]], [[ActionGirl Lise]], and [[LovableRogue Hawk]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}]]'': It's become tradition in the series to have your first two companions as Iffy and Compa. The latter specializes in healing spells. Makes sence, given she's a nurse. The second game gives protagonist Nepgear some light support options, and the next party member you get outside of the aforementioned Iffy and Compa is RED, a combat healer.


* In ''VideoGame/WildArms3'', the hero and first viewpoint character, Virginia Maxwell, is also the main healer, as she's an ItemCaddy who has an ability that lets her apply the effects of items to either all grouped members of an enemy squad or to every member of her team, which is vital considering there is no easy access to healing items for the first third of the game, ''and'' healing items far outstrip magic in effectiveness. Gallows (who also signs on early, as part of the 'prologue' and after it) also counts, as he has healing magic, the ability giving him healing magic boosts his magic and as the team magic it's ''really'' best in his hands and not [[MightyGlacier Clive's]] or Jet's, and somewhat like Virginia, he has an ability that lets him spread his magic, including buffs and healing spells, over the entire party. Both Virginia's and Gallow's abilities, by the way, spread their healing without diminishing the effect for each individual recipient; the game ''really'' wants you to treat the two as the dedicated healers.

Added DiffLines:

*** Eizen is in the same boat as well, as he also has a healing arte...but joins pretty much before Laphicet does anyway. And to drive the point home further, Eleanor, the final character with a healing arte (and, unique to herself and Eizen, a revival arte), is the absolute last character to join, about a fourth of the way into the game. [[ExaggeratedTrope The first two party members you play as for the first two dungeons and first three major boss fights are literally the only ones with no means of healing outside of self-healing through Break Souls.]]


*** Not only that, but by the third dungeon you get a ''second'' dedicated healer character. Both of the healers also qualify as CombatMedics, especially in Estelle's case, who is also the team tank starting around mid-game.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/BoxxyQuestTheGatheringStorm'', the healer signs on ''first''. Catie is the character you start with, and she gets all the best healing spells.


** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the main character gets recruited as Yuna's guardian who, along with being able to summon aeons, is a WhiteMagicianGirl, and who will provide all the healing for most of the game. [[spoiler:She does get separated from the party for a decent amount of time late in the game, however, thus averting ThePotionEffect and forcing your party to train up if the player [[CrutchCharacter leaned too much on Yuna's aeons]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/EternalTwilight'': Damien, a [[WhiteMage White Magi]], is the second party member of the game. His skillset revolves around using spells that simultaneously damage the enemy while healing the party, and any excess healing becomes a barrier to absorb damage.


Nine times out of ten, one of the first people in your party will have a healing ability. This means that you don't have to rely exclusively on items or TraumaInn healing to survive, and thus you can get further into any given area without having to run back and restock.

restock. It may also serve to introduce the player to actions that don't just do damage, encouraging them to use what they may have assumed to be a UselessUsefulSpell due to having few other options during the early parts of the game.


* ''VideoGame/IdleChampionsOfTheForgottenRealms'': The first character you obtain after Bruenor Battlehammer (who you start out with) is the Priestess [[VideoGame/{{Neverwinter}} Celeste]]. She gains a healing ability early on, which is useful for keeping your next character (the party tank Nayeli) alive, and her Ultimate Ability Flame Strike heals your entire party to full health while also dealing damage to enemies with a pillar of fire.
