White Mage is a generic character from the Final Fantasy series of games, appearing in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Mario Sports Mix, which were developed by Square Enix, who also created the Final Fantasy games.
Mario Hoops 3-on-3
The White Mage can be unlocked by getting a Silver Trophy in the Rainbow Tourney on the Normal difficulty. In this game, she was voiced by Deanna Mustard, who also voiced Princess Daisy. There are a few other Final Fantasy characters in this game: Ninja, Black Mage, Moogle, and Cactuar.
An alternate costume can be unlocked for White Mage by winning the Rainbow Tourney on the Hard difficulty with a silver trophy. This alternate costume changes her hair color to purple, and makes the red parts of her skirt, as well as her shoes, slightly darker.
The White Mage seen in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 does not cloak her head with her robe's hood, revealing her pink hair and a tiara, a trait not seen in Final Fantasy. Like Peach and Daisy, White Mage, who normally wears a long white robe, got an outfit change in Mario Hoops 3-on-3.
Mario Sports Mix
The White Mage, along with the other Final Fantasy characters, returns in the Wii game, Mario Sports Mix. She maintains the same outfit that she wore in Mario Hoops 3-on-3.
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.
Her best stat is technique, while having average speed, and fairly low power.
An alternate outfit for her can be unlocked by clearing a certain mission on the Flower Cup, clearing the Star Road 5 times, or by using the White Mage 20 times. The alternate outfit depicts the White Mage wearing a pure white outfit, white hair, white shoes, and white stockings. Also, her eye irises are colored red. This makes her look almost like an albino, a person without pigment in the skin, hair, and eyes.
The White Mage, along with Ninja, have the highest stat total among all the playable characters; 10/15.
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'll 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.
