White Mage is a job class from the Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Mario Sports Mix, developed by Square Enix. In these games, she is depicted as a cheerful woman similar in appearance to Peach and Daisy, wearing a shorter dress and tiara not present in the Final Fantasy series, though she resembles 's appearance as a White Mage in and from the games due to their similar pink hair and green eyes. In Mario Hoops 3-on-3, she is portrayed by Noriko Iwahara, but Bianca Allen takes over the role in Mario Sports Mix.series. They are typically characterized by their long, hooded red and white robes, and practice White Magic (consisting largely of healing and support magic). A White Mage character appears in
In Japanese and internal files of Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Mario Sports Mix, she is named "Black Mage, whom both games call " ".", which is an abbreviated form of the White Mage class's Japanese name, "shiro madōshi". The same applies to her partner,
Mario Hoops 3-on-3
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
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 four Flower Cup wins.
The White Mage's special shot is unique in that her aiming cursor is different. In Basketball and Hockey, the White Mage summons a ray of light, which briefly knocks out anyone in its path, and then she aims for the goal. In Volleyball, the volleyball lands 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 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.
White Mage is a woman with the same height and similar build as Peach. She has fair skin, green eyes and swift ruby-pink hair with a large bang which obscures her right eye, much like Rosalina's, as well as matching lipstick. In the Super Mario sports games, she appears wearing a short white hooded dress with the red triangle pattern that is characteristic of White Mages on the hem, hood and sleeves. She wears a silver intricate tiara with a round red jewel at the center, a red choker, aqua teardrop earrings and a faceted brooch of the same color, and red athletic high heels with curled tips.
Winning a silver trophy in the Rainbow Tourney on the Hard difficulty in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 unlocks an alternate costume for White Mage, changing her hair color to purple, and making the red parts of her dress and heels magenta, while her chest brooch becomes red and her choker remains the same color.
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 heels and dress to icy pale blue with a red brooch and the pattern becomes white and more rounded, along with light green earrings and white laced stockings, with her choker once again remaining the same color. Her hair also turns white and her irises are colored red, which are both traits of albinism.
Powers and abilities
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 Super Mario franchise. 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.

- In Mario Sports Mix, there are some occasions in which the White Mage's tiara is invisible. This usually happens when she is not close to the camera. This is due to the game loading lower poly versions of the models when they are farther from the camera. While the higher poly version of the tiara is has both back and front sides modeled, the lower versions lack the back of it.
