White Mage is a generic character from the Final Fantasy series, appearing in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Mario Sports Mix, which were developed by Square Enix, who also created the Final Fantasy games. In the original series, they practice White Magic and wear long, hooded robes. In the Mario games, she is depicted as a cheerful woman and wears a shorter dress and tiara not present in the Final Fantasy series. In Mario Hoops 3-on-3, she is portrayed by Noriko Iwahara, but Bianca Allen takes over the role in Mario Sports Mix.


Mario Hoops 3-on-3[edit]

Holy Shot

The White Mage can be unlocked by getting a Silver Trophy in the Rainbow Tourney on Normal difficulty. She is a technical character like Daisy and Peach, with great speed, but low power. Her special shot is the Holy Shot, based on the Holy Spell from the Final Fantasy series. The shot is unique in physical characteristics: while inside the 3-point line, her shot moves the ball upside, and after a flash, it falls in the hoop. However, while outside the 3-point line, her shot moves the ball into a blue trail, and a member of her team aids to dunk the ball. As seen in the Rainbow Cup, her default partners are Black Mage and Ninja, also from the Final Fantasy series.

Mario Sports Mix[edit]


The White Mage returns in the Wii game, Mario Sports Mix. She maintains the same outfit that she wore in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. Her best stat is technique, while having average speed, and fairly low power. The White Mage, along with Ninja, have the highest stat total among all the playable characters. Once again, her default partners are Ninja and Black Mage. She can be unlocked by clearing the Star Road twice. An alternate method is to complete a certain mission on the Mushroom Cup. She can also be unlocked with 4 Flower Cup wins and a Star Cup victory.

The White Mage's special shot is unique in that her aiming cursor is different. In Basketball and Hockey, the White Mage will summon a ray of light, which briefly knocks out anyone in its path, and then she'll aim for the goal. In Volleyball, the volleyball will land at a random spot; the landing cursor first covers the whole field, and then shrinks to the target position. In Dodgeball, opposing players caught in the ray of light will lose some of their HP.

In Basketball, the White Mage is a moderately fast dunker, and her layup move involves using white magic to send the basketball into the hoop. She can also add a curve to her long range shots. In Volleyball, the White Mage can give her fully charged shots an added curve, but they move slowly. She can also block volleyball shots by creating a barrier over the net. In Dodgeball, the White Mage can repel dodgeball attacks by creating a barrier in front of her. However, the barrier is rendered useless if the dodgeball hits the White Mage from behind, or if the dodgeball is equipped with an item. When trying to save the ball after hitting a character, she summons a circle that resembles her aiming cursor to bring the ball to her. In Hockey, White Mage can use light magic to attack opponents. Her attacks have far range, which can give her an advantage in attacking. Since she has good technique, she can score with ease by using far away shots or using combos.

General information[edit]

Physical description[edit]

White Mage is a woman that is the same height as Peach, but with a thinner build. She has green eyes and her hair is short, colored pink, and has a large bang which obscures her right eye, much like Rosalina's. In the Mario sports games, she appears wearing a small dress with the red triangle pattern that is characteristic of White Mages. Her hood is down, and she wears a silver tiara with a red jewel at the center, a red necklace, light blue earrings and red high heels.

Winning a silver trophy in the the Rainbow Tourney on he Hard difficulty in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 unlocks an alternate costume for White Mage, changing her hair colour to purple, and darkens the red parts of her skirt and shoes.

In Mario Sports Mix, an alternate outfit for her can also be unlocked by clearing a certain mission on the Flower Cup, clearing the Star Road five times, or by using the White Mage twenty times. This alternate outfit changes her shoes and dress to white with a red brooch, light green earrings, and white stockings. Her hair also turns is white and her irises are coloured red, which are both traits of albinism.

Powers and abilities[edit]

White Mage's Special Shot in Volleyball.

White Mage has control of white magic, which are spells that support her allies. She has one attack spell, called Holy, that appears as her special attack in the 'Mario series. The Holy Shot consists of an attack magic that in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 was blue, and in Mario Sports Mix is white. She also has low Power stats. Also in Mario Sports Mix, in Volleyball and Dodgeball, White Mage uses white magic circles to catch the ball. In Volleyball she can use a veil to block the ball.
