* Varies A Lot: TheBigGuy, [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]], and [[TheChick Chick]] roles on this show get traded around more often than you'd expect, and there's generally a whole lotta subvertin' goin' on, but the pattern does hold more often than not.
%% Hotch is The Leader pretty straight since he is the unit chief. Even when Morgan is the temporary chief, he's more of a figure head. Gideon and Rossi are the scruffy more laid back contrast to Hotch's uptight straightforward leading which is right inline with The Lancer. Reid is far too useful to be The Chick.
