Good Defeats Evil, Evil Defeats Neutral, Neutral defeats Good
A Sub-Trope of Tactical Rock-Paper-Scissors and Sister Trope to Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors. (Needs More Examples, Trope Worthy ? or should it just be added as a subset of Tactical Rock-Paper-Scissors) Another form of balancing advantages and disadvantages, primarily in Video Games. In this set up, effectiveness is dependant on moral alignment rather than Elemental Powers of Tactical advantages. Whenever this shows up, expect it to follow this formula:
- Good Defeats Evil
- Evil Defeats Neutral
- Neutral defeats Good
- Digimon: Vaccine beats Virus, Virus beats Data, Data beats Vaccine
- Fire Emblem: The magic triangle, Light defeats Dark, Dark defeats Nature, Nature defeats Light.
- Mario Party: One minigame featured a game that was literally Rock Paper Scissor, only played with Mario beats Bowser, Bowser beats Peach, and Peach beats Mario.
