* '''Parodied''': There is a literal reset button that Alice carries around with her everywhere just in case something goes wrong. She uses it every time a monster attacks, every time she says something that angers a friend, or when she rips her skirt, or steps on a bug.

* '''Deconstructed''': Alice likes things exactly the way they are. Whenever something happens that might upset the status quo she is currently living, she summons her magical forces and returns things back to the way she likes it. Nothing ever changes for Alice in her village. Nobody ever changes and technology never evolves. Nobody dies and nobody suffers sickness or grief for long, but nobody ever matures and nobody's quality of life improves either, even if they are given the chance. Alice's village becomes a land stuck in a single moment, living blissfully, but without change.
** Alice uses the power to be a tyrant by resetting everything that she doesn't approve of.

* '''Defied''': Alice has the chance to travel back in time, fix her mistakes, and return everything to the way they were before, but decides that taking the easy way out is not the best way to solve all her problems.
