Added DiffLines:

* [[FiveManBand Five Girl Band]]: The five young witches form one:
** TheHero: Zoe--she's the ostensible main character (or, at least, the person who the audience follows early in the season), seems to desire doing the right thing, comes from a humble background, and is rather naive about the whole "witch" thing.
** TheLancer: Madison--she's everything Zoe isn't: haughty, wealthy, unafraid to use her powers freely to get what she wants, and promiscuous (contrast that with Zoe, who ''can't'' have sex because her powers literally kill her partners).
** [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]: Queenie--in addition to being the physically largest and strongest member of the group, her power of pain transferal is the most useful in a straight-up fight. Heck, she can even [[spoiler: shoot herself in the head]] and be able to shake it off!
** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Misty--her ability to [[BackFromTheDead revive the dead]] is the most technically advanced and difficult to perform, and requires a good deal of practice and care, as she can't rush the process.
** TheChick: Nan--her PsychicPowers are decidedly non-offensive, and she's definitely TheHeart of the girls, trying her best to mediate conflicts. She also displays a knack for traditionally "feminine" activities like baking.
** TeamMom: Cordelia.

''Series/AmericanHorrorStory: Coven'' is the third season of Ryan Murphy's acclaimed anthology series. It follows a group of girls who are witches, and, as such, have unique supernatural powers. They attend a small school for girls like them in New Orleans, and must deal with the trappings of what inevitably happens when unstable teenagers are given immense destructive power. Things only become more complicated when the Supreme, an incredibly powerful witch with all of their powers and much disdain for the human race, decides to move in and teach them how to defend themselves in the wake of a modern-day witch burning.

Added DiffLines:

* SexMagic: The series presents multiple variations of this trope:
** All witches possess at least one unique ability. Zoe Benson discovers her ability to [[DeathBySex kill people she has sex with]] when [[spoiler:her boyfriend violently hemorrhages to death during their first]]. They call it "Black Widow" if you needed a label for it.
** Cordelia and Hank Foxx attempt a fertility ritual in hopes that they could conceive. It doesn't work.

* FantasticRacism: The Voodoo Queen's kind and Witches are on bad terms at the moment. It also has undertones of normal racism, as voodoo seems to be practiced mostly (or exclusively) by black people, whereas the witches (being descendants of the Salem witches) are mostly white women.
** More a case of UnEqualRites - Marie once referred to herself as a witch, and the Salem descendants have referred to the New Orleans Voodoo community as witches. Marie once helped Fiona with a spell.
