** Lance is clearly out-gunned on every front: not as powerful as [[TheBigGuy Tony]], not as smart as [[TheSmartGuy Will]], not so [[TheHeart morally or emotionally grounded]] as [[TheChick Chica]], and he doesn't quite have have [[TheHero Hiro]]'s natural leadership ability. He develops psychological issues over his [[MasterOfNone inability to stand out]] in TheTeam, which eventually leads to him trying to take on one of the other roles when he's not quite cut out for it.

'''Basic Trope''': The second most-capable member of the FiveManBand; the opposite of TheHero in many levels.
* '''Straight''': Where as [[TheHero Hiro]] is a LargeHam; Lance is calm, silent and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]].
* '''Exaggerated''': Hiro is a deranged individual who blows everything out of proportion, which makes Lance a more capable leader in comparison.

* '''Downplayed''': ???Hiro and Lance have only superficial differences. At their core, they're NotSoDifferent.



* '''Double Subverted''': His BloodKnight persona is a SuperpoweredEvilSide that he desperately tries to suppress. This forms much conflict between him and Hiro.
* '''Parodied''': Lance is a [[SmallNameBigEgo narcissist]] who thinks he can lead better than that idiot Hiro.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Hiro starts off as TheLeader while Lance is the second-in-command. Hiro is cool and calm while Lance is snarky and violent. Due to personal issues, Hiro has to step down, allowing Lance the position of the leader. The new sense of responsibility makes Lance mature while Hiro grows resentful and snarky. Hiro then forces his way back up to leader where he immediately calms down and resumes his previous personality. Realizing how much of a JerkAss Hiro is at heart, Lance becomes bitter and takes the NumberTwo role once more.
* '''Averted''': The members of the FiveManBand all act as a {{foil}} towards TheHero.

** Then he goes through a PeggySue, showing that without him, TheTeam is more helpless than he thought.
** Then again, Lance is a better fighter than [[SquishyWizard Will]], both faster and smarter than [[MightyGlacier Tony]], doesn't have the whole team relying on him emotionally like Chica, and if a plot fails, it's on Hiro's head, not Lance's. His responsibilities are more suited to his nature, and hey, even if his personality sometimes clashes with Hiro's, they're the best of friends and Hiro relies on Lance both in the heat of battle and in their lives outside of it.
