A '''Five-Token Band''' consists of characters from very obviously different backgrounds and ethnic groups, but rather than being assembled disparately they all happen to live in the [[EverytownAmerica same area]], regardless of how diverse the town should be. In school-centered shows and media, the "different backgrounds" may also include different social groups, hobbies, or cliques (ex. nerds, artists, jocks). Typically, this is designed for one of two purposes:

* One of the archetypical examples: The Creator/StevenSpielberg comedy ''Film/TheGoonies'' (1985). The formulaic band of seven kids includes a jock (the big brother), the smart quiet kid (the younger brother), the geek/gadgeteer (who is also Asian), the fat comic-relief boy (Jewish), the token pretty girl (and love interest of the older brother), the tough girl (the tomboy), and the loudmouthed guy who just can't shut up. Not so much different ethnicities (all except the Asian kid are white) but rather different personality archetypes.
