->Blossom, commander and the leader\\
Bubbles, she is the joy and the laughter\\
Buttercup, she is the toughest fighter\\
-- '''Ending theme''', ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''

A group dynamic trope, a type of female PowerTrio where [[TheSmartGuy one is smart]], [[TheBigGuy one is tough]], and one is conventionally [[TheChick pretty, popular or feminine]].

Often, to give "Beauty" a useful skill, she also acts as the TeamMom, TheKirk, or [[TheHeart the mediator when the other two get into their frequent fights]]. In other cases, she is the [[TheFace one who is ''socially'' adept and empathetic]], while "Brains" has technical skills but is sometimes nerdy or socially awkward.

The personalities might also be what the FreudianTrio used to be described as: body or the impulsive, pleasure-seeking one (the brawn), mind or the academic, reasonable one (the brain) and heart or the one who ties them together, as the calming, healing influence (the beauty). In other words, the Brawn represents the [[TheMcCoy Id]], the Brain represents the [[TheSpock Superego]], and the Beauty represents the [[TheKirk Ego]].

[[BlondeBrunetteRedhead Often]] ColorCodedForYourConvenience as the BrainyBrunette, the FieryRedhead and the [[BrainlessBeauty beautiful but]] DumbBlonde. Contrast though as the BlondeBrunetteRedhead tend to be portrayed as flaws while Beauty Brains And Brawn are good.

** Sam - Brains. A straight-A student, unofficial {{leader}} of the team, and comes up with the [[ThePlan most strategies for fighting the bad guys]] and when the girls have to escape near-death situations.
** Alex - Brawn. A bit of a tomboy who's the most athletic of the the team and loves sports.
** Clover - Beauty. A ValleyGirl who is easily the most boy crazy of the group. The show also gave a pragmatic reason to have a Beauty, since she is good with disguises (though this becomes a moot point in later seasons where the girls just use holograms.)

** Bubbles - Beauty; "the joy and the laughter"

%%** [[TheHero Rico]] - The Brawn
