[[caption-width-right:335:Mrs, Ms, and Miss.]]

A trio of ladies: the steady, wise '''wife''', the sexual, often sexually predatory '''seductress''', and the innocent '''child'''.

The wife, the wiser, calmer aspect, is someone around whom one could build a home life. The seductress is sexually experienced and independent. The third, the "child" (who does ''not'' have to be a child literally) will be an innocent, [[VirginityMakesYouStupid perhaps painfully so]].

So in short, a triad of:

* [[WomenAreWiser Calm and Capable]]
* [[HotterAndSexier Hot and Sexy]]
* [[TheIngenue Playful and Innocent]]

All three character types are considered to be very feminine -- [[LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine with Child representing Light Feminine, Seductress representing Dark Feminine]] and Wife being in the middle, just like the movie that the trope gets its title from. Instead of BeautyBrainsAndBrawn it's pretty-Beauty, pleasant-Beauty, and provocative-Beauty; or, alternatively: cute, beautiful, and sexy. Instead of [[TownGirls butch, femme, and neither]] it's (girly) femme, (lady-like) femme, and (overtly sexy) femme.

Note that the key traits for each is: making for a good life partner, not necessarily motherly (for the wife), innocent and thus not cruel (child), and sexy and/or seductive, not only passionate (seductress).

* MadonnaWhoreComplex where any individual woman must be either "sexual and attractive" or "virtuous and maternal", but cannot be both.
* TheWeirdSisters, where the personality distinction does not need to be present, and the three must be supernatural.
Compare and contrast:
* TheHecateSisters, where the "maiden" combines the naiveté of the child with the sexuality of the seductress, the "mother" combines the liveliness of the child with the maturity of the wife, and the "crone" doesn't have a close counterpart.
* TheThreeFacesOfAdam, the SpearCounterpart to TheHecateSisters.

Named for the 1957 film ''Film/TheThreeFacesOfEve'', about a woman with [[SplitPersonalities multiple personalities]] representing each of these types.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
Generally, most UnwantedHarem series' will have a dynamic among the potential love interests, with the child typically being the TokenMiniMoe.
* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''' three Goddesses:
** Immature kid sister Skuld, who is the goddess of the future and represents the child.
** The calm, compassionate, and domestic Belldandy, goddess of the present and represents the wife.
** The flirty, firey, half demon Urd, goddess of the past and represents the seductress.
* ''Manga/CatsEye'': The Kisugi sisters.
** Older sister Rui is the Wife: The one more similar to the girls's MissingMom, not to mention the wisest of the three and [[PromotiontoParent had to raise the other two]].
** Middle sister Hitomi is the Seductress: the one with a steady love interest, very sexy and emotional.
** Younger sister Ai is the Child: tomboyish, cheerful and a WrenchWench
* ''Anime/{{Daimos}}'':
** Erika is the calm, intelligent, reflective, prudent and reluctant to do anything rash wife.
** Raiza is the hot and sensual seductress, using her body charms to get what she wants.
** Nana is the young, temperamental, rash child.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ''
** Jealous, temperamental, nagging, tantrum-prone Sayaka Yumi is the child.
** Mature, calm, collected, professional Misato is the wife.
** And beautiful, sensual and alluring Erika is the seductress (who, actually, tempted TheHero).
* ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'':
** Queen Felia is the wife, calm, mature and wise.
** Hilmuka is the temptress, beautiful, sultry, and more than willing to use her charms to get what she wants.
** Hot-tempered, rash, inmature, emotional twelve-year-old Chiruru is the child.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': This dynamic is overplayed for laughs with the three Tendo sisters:
** Kasumi, the oldest, is the motherly HouseWife figure, and so kind and purehearted that she has no negative instincts whatsoever.
** Nabiki, the second, is the sociopathic hedonist, manipulator, swindler, scam artist, and heartbreaking seductress.
** Akane, the youngest, is the naive, shy, overachieving, sentimental, helpful, self-sacrificing idealist child who is also clumsy, hasty and hot-tempered.
* ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'':
** Lime is youthful in appearance, overly cheerful, and a bit dumb at times, making her the child.
** Cherry is extremely domestic and focused on being proper which causes her to appear more even-tempered and less impulsive than Lime or Bloodberry. Often when the other two are running rough-shod over the show's protagonist she is the one to stop and consider his feelings. She fits the wife archtype in addition to really wanting to be the protagonist's wife.
** Bloodberry is more shameless than Cherry, and more sexual in her intention. Additionally, the is the only one of the trio with a mature-looking body.
* In ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'', personality-wise ([[GenderInvertedTrope even though all three are male]]):
** Goku is optimistic (especially for a demon), youthful looking, and more than a bit clueless, making him the child.
** Hakkai as the group's HouseHusband is the smartest and most even-tempered, fitting the wife archetype.
** Gojyo is flirty and physical, making him the seductress.
* The three female Card Professors in ''Manga/YuGiOhR'' fall into this. Reiko Kitamori, the Child, is a ShrinkingViolet whose first instinct is to run away whenever she sees a Duelist despite being a very skilled one herself. Tilla Mook is the Seductress, a beautiful {{Goth}} whose [[ThemeDeck deck revolves around]] [[KissOfTheVampire her vampire]] [[VampiresAreSexGods "master"]]. And Mrs. Maico Kato is the Wife, a sedate old woman who dotes on her grandchildren (and has to be careful not to [[BadassGrandma beat them too badly when they play Duel Monsters]].)
* ''LightNovel/AriaTheScarletAmmo'' has Aria who is a childish {{tsundere}}, with a hefty amount of emphasis on her lack of experience, Shirayuki is a YamatoNadeshiko, classic wife material, and [[MsFanservice Riko]] seduces people for [[TheTease fun]] and [[TheSchlubPubSeductionDeduction profit]].
* Of the ([[HaremGenre first]]) three girls who are in love with Kurusu in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', Papi is the Child because she is joyous, absent-minded, and a bit naive; Centaurea is the Wife because she is incredibly honorable and chivalrous, as well as unerringly loyal to Kurusu; and Miia is the Seductress because she is very flirtatious, trying to seduce Kurusu on multiple occasions.
** Incidentally, the ''next'' three fit this trope as well; Suu is the Child, being commonly naive and innocent, Meron is the Wife, desiring a classic romance with Kimihito (albeit a rather bizarre "tragic romance"), and Rachnera is the Seductress, being the most openly sexual member of the whole cast, openly trying to hook up with Kimihito for booty calls. The 7th member of the harem, Lala, kind of sticks out, though. She's just weird.
** Even the three main members of the MON group fit this trope, with the innocent and girlish Tionishia being the Child (despite her massive size), shy and demure Manako being the Wife, and laddish, teasing Zombina being the Seductress, traits that can be most easily seen during the chapter where they all go on dates with Kimihito.
* In ''Manga/{{Change 123}},'' Motoko's three alternate personalities follow this mold. Mikiri is the {{innocent|FanserviceGirl}} child, Hibiki is the HotBlooded seductress and Fujiko is the wise, motherly wife.
* In ''Anime/PleaseTeacher'', the heroine, Mizuho, is obviously the "[[YamatoNadeshiko sensible and capable]]" Wife, her "[[BrattyHalfPint innocent childlike]]" sister Maho is obviously the Child, and the "HotterAndSexier" Hatsuho is the Seductress, despite the fact that she's their mother.
* ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'' gives us Margaret Burton as the Wife (gentle, quiet OrdinaryHighschoolStudent), Madlax as the Seductress (deadly and sexy [[HitmanWithAHeart hitwoman with a heart]]), and Laetitia as the Child ([[CreepyChild creepy-looking]] LonelyDollGirl). It's even more meaningful when we find out that [[spoiler:Laetitia and Madlax are actually ''parts of Margaret's whole self'', released when she killed her BrainwashedAndCrazy father (and the first Madlax) in self-defense years ago. In the end, Margaret decides to accept her past and split herself again in three, adopting Laetitia as her little sister and releasing Madlax so she can live her life as she sees fit.]]
* In ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' the first three girls in Tenchi's household
** The pure-hearted and young Sasami
** The dignified and demure Ayeka
** The boisterous and overtly sexual Ryoko
* ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'' has the eventual main character trio Illya, Miyu and Chloe:
** Illya is a bright child, because at the start she is a little immature and simple-minded (justified since she ''is'' a child), as well as optimistic and with great potential.
** Miyu is a stoic and smart wife, who is much more passive than either Illya or Chloe, as well as supportive and protective of Illya and the mansion where she works as a maid. She also has domestic skills such as being able to cook very well.
** Chloe is unmistakingly the seductress, since she is ''very'' open-minded about relationships and matters of love, and she kisses other people a lot (a requirement since she needs other people's energy to live). Also, while Illya wears fairly normal clothes for a young girl and Miyu's casual clothes are more boyish, Chloe's wardrobe is a little more risky.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In some versions of the ''Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'', Triplicate Girl (or Triad) has a different personality for each body; Triad-Purple is brash and outgoing (seductress), Triad-Orange is shy and quiet (Child) and Triad-Neutral is the stable figure who has to keep the other two together (Wife).
* In the Franchise/DCUniverse series ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens'', Harley Quinn plays up her clownish persona by acting ditzy and naive (child), Catwoman is pragmatic and sensible (Wife), and Poison Ivy is a vamp known for using her sex appeal to get her way (seductress). They team up.
* Franchise/TheDCU also has [[TheIngenue Halo]] (child), [[LadyOfWar Katana]] (wife/widow), and [[FemmeFatale Looker]] (seductress) of the Outsiders.

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': The three female pilots:
** Asuka is the Wife: she is intelligent, competent and dependable (when she is emotionally stable).
** Mari is the Seductress: She is sexy, she knows it, she flaunts it (her weapons officer states she shoots off hormones like they were lasers) and she is willing to flirt and using her charms to get what she wants (even if what she wants is merely messing with someone else's head)
** Rei is the Child: she is naive, innocent and insecure.
* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'':
** Asuka is the wife [[spoiler:in more ways than one]]: She is wise, dependable and supportive. She is the one makes plans and devises strategies and [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Shinji usually depends on her for everything]].
** Misato is the seductress, often acting flirty towards Shinji (although she toned it down when she learnt that [[spoiler:Shinji and Asuka were secretly married]]
** Rei is the child: she is innocent, inmature, insecure and socially ignorant.
* It's not really canon, but if we count Past Sins, then the three ponies touched by the Nightmare Forces fit this trope: we have wise [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E6SleeplessInPonyville Luna]] (wife), innocent [[Fanfic/PastSins Nyx]] (child), and flirty [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW Rarity]] (seductress).
* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** Asuka is the wife. She calmed Shinji down and her presence kept him emotionally stable.
** Rei is the child. She had trouble controlling her emotions and her jealousy and she got irrationally angry and petty when she didn't get her way.
** Misato is the seductress. She is sultry, sensual and loves teasing.

* The TropeNamer, ''Film/TheThreeFacesOfEve'', features Eve, a loyal and dependable housewife, developing two split personalities; first the seductress and then the innocent child.
* ''Film/HeroicTrio'' has a young ditz, a motherly type, and a (formerly) dark seductress as the main characters.
* Deconstructed in ''Film/BlackSwan''. At first glance, the older and Prima Ballerina Beth who is Thomas's girlfriend would seem to be the wife, the sweet, innocent Nina is the child, and the sexy and wild Lily would be the seductress. But it turns out that Beth is clingy and insane, Nina is very repressed and begins to mature throughout the film, and while Lily does enjoy casual sex she is not as manipulative or self-serving as Nina believed.
* ''Film/VanHelsing'' has the three brides of Dracula. Verona is the Wife - she is the leader and WordOfGod confirms that she is Dracula's favourite. Marishka is the Child - we don't see too much of her but she is very playful and [[spoiler:TooDumbToLive]]. Aleera is the Seductress - she by far gets the most LesYay with Anna.
* Brazilian movie ''Loucas pra Casar'' has a woman with long-lasting marriage obsession (wife) finding out her boyfriend has two lovers, an exotic dancer (seductress) and an overtly religious younger woman (child). She even discovers all three were proposed by the guy! Then at the wedding, she finds out all three ''[[SplitPersonality were]]'' the woman LostInCharacter, from the "sexual fantasies" she and her soon-to-be-husband frequently performed.
* Deconstructed in the 2001 indie film ''Seven & a Match''. The three female characters fall into these labels at first but they're all examined. Ellie the Child must grow up suddenly after her parents' sudden deaths in a car accident, but this leads to her doing reckless and foolish things. Blair the Wife is seemingly the Miss Perfect of the group, but she eventually cheats on her boyfriend and gets knocked off her pedestal as her own dirty laundry comes out. Whit the Seductress is an EthicalSlut but is about to get married, and has to face her friends' assumptions that the relationship won't last due to her history.

* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' has Bella's NaiveEverygirl contrasted with Esme (wife), who warmly welcomes Bella into her home and later restores a cottage on the Cullen estate for Bella and Edward, Rosalie (seductress), who is jealous of Edward's affection for Bella because she the one who has always been desired by men, and Alice (child), who values Bella's safety above all and cares for her like a sister.
* In ''Literature/ChroniclesOfMagravandias'', the three women in Valraven's life--Ellony Leckery ([[TheIngenue child]]), Varencienne Malagash ([[PlatonicLifePartners wife]]), and Pharinet Palindrake ([[BrotherSisterIncest seductress]])
* Helen and her two friends Millicent and Annabella who all marry into the same group of friends form this trio in ''Literature/TheTenantOfWildfellHall''. Helen is the wife, steadfastly devoted to her marriage even when it begins to fall apart; she takes her marital duties so seriously that she returns to Grassdale when Huntingdon is ill to care for him. Millicent is the child, innocent, idealistic, and very passive, needing others to take care of her. Annabella is the seductress, tricking Lord Lowborough into marriage with her beauty and luring Huntingdon away from Helen, the death blow for Helen's love for her husband.
* ''Literature/DavidCopperfield'' gives us the three ladies whom David loved through his life. His FirstLove is Little Emily, the Seductress (aware of her good looks, may or may have not been a prostitute and her best friend Martha ''is'' one, [[spoiler:ends up running away with Steerforth [[BreakTheCutie and is massively broken]] for that]]); his SecondLove Dora is The Child (spoiled, sweet, naive, even nicknamed 'his child wife' [[spoiler:and what drew David to her ''may'' have been his MommyIssues since she was similar to his also very child-like mother Clara]]; and finally, his third love and second wife Agnes is the Wife (reliable, the "angel of the house", softspoken, a ProperLady)
* ''Literature/HisFamily'': Roger's daughters. Edith fits the "wife" face exactly, nurturing and motherly and dedicated to her children to the exclusion of everything else. Laura is definitely the "seductress", as she is sexy, she dresses sexy, she likes to party, and she ReallyGetsAround. Deborah isn't quite the "innocent", as she is a hard-working social activist, but she is somewhat virginal and puritanical.


[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Series/KnotsLanding'', the three main women fill these roles perfectly: Karen is The Wife, the wiser, calmer aspect. Abby is The Seductress -- sexually experienced and independent. Val is The "Child" (although she's the same age as the other women) and is innocent, perhaps to the point of naïveté.
* Although all the same age the girls on ''Series/{{Friends}}'' can be viewed this way, with flirty and sophisticated [[MsFanservice Rachel]] as the seductress, innocent and quirky [[CloudCuckoolander Phoebe]] as the child and capable, responsible [[HappilyMarried Monica]] as the wife.
* The three women in the study group of ''Series/{{Community}}'' fit this to a tee:
** Shirley is the Wife; she is not only the oldest, she tries to be the voice of reason and mediator wherever possible, as well as the group's moral center.
** Britta is the seductress; she has the most varied sex-life and uses sex to get what she wants now and again, she is the most traditionally attractive, and she is the most cynical.
** Annie is the child; she is the youngest and the most idealistic and naive, something she often gets made fun of for.
* The three female leads of ''Series/MadMen'': Joan is the seductress, completely capable of using her sexuality to get what she wants. At first glance, Betty (StepfordSmiler housewife) would be the Wife and Peggy (PluckyOfficeGirl) would be the child, but before long, childishness establishes itself as one of Betty's crucial qualities if not her FatalFlaw, and Peggy displays a determination to leave behind the role of wide-eyed little girl and becomes a capable woman and Don's equal in a way Betty (his actual wife) never was.
* The three ladies of ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' minus Sophia. Rose was the child (sweet and naive), Dorothy was the wife (calm and sensible) and Blanche was the seductress (sexy and fiery.)
%%* ''Series/ANTFarm'' also has Chyna (wife), Olive (child) and Lexi (seductress), the last one actually of the bragging kind in season 1 and 2.
* The ladies of ''Series/GilligansIsland'', but not the way you'd expect:
** Mrs. Howell (the oldest chronologically and the only married woman, and very [[HappilyMarried happily so]]) is actually the Child: she's naive, pretty much nonsexual, and dependent.
** Tall, sexy, flirtatious, Hollywood-starlet Ginger is the Seductress.
** Young, sweet, gentle farm GirlNextDoor Mary Ann is the stable, mature, reliable Wife".
* With Prue's death at the end of Series Three of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', Piper becomes the wife, eventually growing from insecure middle sister to capable eldest sister. She is also the first one to actually get married and have children. Paige is the child, being the youngest, newest member of the family and the least experienced in the ways of magic. Phoebe is the seductress, having the most active love life of the sisters.
** The Stillman Sisters, evil blonde counterparts in season 6. Leader Mabel is the wife, ditzy youngest sister Mitsy is the child and flirty and provocative Margo is the seductress. They do indeed impersonate the corresponding Halliwell sibling.
* In ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' the three female leads qualify. Kelly is the Child; she's portrayed as kind to everyone and often too naive for her own good. Jessie is the Wife; she's the student council president and the most mature of the SixStudentClique. Lisa is the Seductress; as she herself puts it "my hobbies include [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs dating, guys and dating guys]]".

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/Apartment3G'':
** Margo is the sly , hot headed, scheming seductress.
** Bubbly and bubble-brained Lu Ann is the child.
** Stable, domestic Tommie as a very dull Wife (ironic seeing as how she's eternally single.)

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games in general have a pattern to their three playable females (and there are always three; see the Three Females Rule in the Grand List) are almost always represented as an Innocent Princess type, a Tough but Sexy Type, and a Perky Girl type. Occasionally this overlaps with the faces of Eve archetypes, although often times the Tough but Sexy character is not a seductress but more passively sexy.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' does a similar trick to the later ''VII'' in that it reverses the appearance and character of two of the girls. Rosa is pure Wife/Innocent Princess whose main desire is to be helpful, and who marries Cecil at the end. But Rydia looks sexy but is in personality the Perky Girl; Porom is a child, but hits people to keep them in line and is extremely clever and dangerous (being a brilliant mage and a spy).
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'':
*** Lenna, the wife/innocent princess. Her main plots are about her family, specifically her quest to rescue her father, her backstory about her mother, and her connection to drakes, for which she will harm herself to any extent to protect.
*** Faris, the seductress/tough but sexy girl. She's a pirate who is shown as being sexually irresistible [[StupidSexyFlanders even when dressed as a man and passing]], with most of her crew having crushes on her. She also tries to kidnap the princess for ransom money and climbs up rope bridges with her teeth.
*** Krile is the child, fourteen and has supernatural sensitivity coming from her innocence. However, she's very much ''not'' perky, with the end of the game revealing her to be actively suicidal once her desire for revenge isn't sustaining her. (She does get one comic setpiece where she gets into a slap-fight with Bartz, though.)
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'':
*** Terra is the wife/innocent princess type - despite being the least stable of the three, she's the sweetest and most compassionate, and pretty level-headed regarding her role in the story. [[MeaningfulName No wonder her name means "earth".]]
*** Celes is the seductress/tough but sexy type - she's a {{Tsundere}} in her romance with [[LovableRogue Locke]], and she's also the tough one, being a [[LadyOfWar war general]].
*** Relm is the child/perky type - [[BadassGrandpa Strago]] didn't even want her to be involved in any combat at first because of this. She's [[AdorablyPrecociousChild precocious]] and optimistic.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has an interesting version of this. For starters, one of the three women is an OptionalPartyMember, and secondly, the two who weren't looked like they played one role, but in fact were the opposite:
*** [[BareFistedMonk Tifa]], who looks the part of the seductress, is in fact most reasonable and sensitive -- also the secret-keeper of the group (her last name, [[MeaningfulName Lockheart]] foreshadows this).
*** [[WhiteMagicianGirl Aerith]], who looks the part of the demure wife, is in fact flirty, street-wise, and the most assertive in her sexuality.
*** [[NinjaBrat Yuffie]] (the optional one) both looks and [[BrattyHalfPint acts]] like the child and is naïve and idealistic (if not particularly honest or trustworthy).
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''
*** Rinoa is the wife: the fact she is TheProtagonist's romantic interest is brought on by her calm, gentle demeanor, her selflessness, and her pleasant GirlNextDoor character design.
*** Quistis is the seductress, she not only plays a short list of fetishes, but she is actively flirty and far more mature than the other women.
*** Selphe is the child, her hyperactivity, relentless perkiness is exaggerated to the point of annoying even the other characters.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''
*** Yuna is in the wife role, being unerringly calm and lives to helps others, self-sacrificing, soft-spoken, and graceful.
*** Lulu is in the seductress role, most obviously in how she dresses, the tone she uses when she speaks, and how she holds her self and moves around in her battle animations.
*** Rikku is in the child role, the fact that she is the youngest is exaggerated by her consistently upbeat personality, her sweet but shortsighted convictions, and her occasional ditziness.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has this in its three female party members.
*** [[SugarAndIcePersonality Lightning]] (believe it or not) plays the part of the wife. She's the most motherly and caring of the group -- particularly towards [[ParentalSubstitute Hope]] and (much later) Snow. She is also said to have acted this way around Serah.
*** [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Fang]] plays the role of the seductress; she is the most flirty and provocative of the group, and is quite HotBlooded at times. Interestingly, these aspects of her personality originally belonged to Lightning (with Serah as the seventh party member and playing the part of the wife), but when Fang was [[GenderFlip made a woman]], they were given to her instead.
*** [[GenkiGirl Vanille]] is usually very bubbly and other characters will comment (or complain) about her childishness. [[spoiler:Vanille is actually [[StepfordSmiler putting a lot of that behaviour up as a facade to hide her guilt]], but genuinely is like this otherwise]].
* Creator/BioWare is fond of using this trope for the female {{love interest}}s in its [[RolePlayingGame RPGs]].
** In ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII''. Sweet Aerie is the Child, no-nonsense [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal world-weary widowed]] Jaheira the wife, and darkly playful Viconia the seductress.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'':
*** Child - Leliana is on the ingenuous side of PingPongNaivete. She had been drawn into espionage and political intrigue by the sense of glamor, excitement, adventure, and it wasn't until after she was burned by the shady side that she realized she had relied on Marjolaine to shelter her from that so she could continue to innocently play games. Instead of becoming the jaded manipulative spy, she chose to preserve her purity of spirit by seeking sanctuary with a stable and nurturing parental surrogate, the Church of Andraste.
*** Seductress - Morrigan is cynical, instatly contemptive of others, knows her sex appeal and how to use it to her advantage. Before the end, she will try to seduce a Warden to get what she wants, whether or not that Warden has ever shown interest in intimacy with her, or even likes her at all.
*** Wife - Wynne is cool-headed, perceptive, compassionate, and far more worldly wise than the confined life of a Tower Mage would suggest. She's no stranger to giving and receiving pleasure in her relationships. Modest and pragmatic, but not overly prim, she simply flirts with more decorum.
** The three female companions in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'':
*** Child - Merrill is a DitzyGenius FishOutOfWater and your most relentlessly cheery teammate. Of course, she's ''also'' a powerful blood mage and the only party mage [[BlackMage to focus entirely on damage]]. She looks up to the more worldly Isabela (see below).
*** Wife - Aveline is the only character to start the story married (although she is quickly widowed), and the only character almost guaranteed to end in a relationship. She's wise, honest, caring, no-nonsense, and a capable leader; she takes her responsibilities as captain of the city guard seriously and strives very hard to keep the men and women under her as safe as possible.
*** Seductress - Isabela flirts with everyone and makes no bones about her love of sex and no attempt to hide her past sexual exploits. She is the most provocatively dressed member of the party, and [[CoolBigSis offers to teach Merrill how to do body-shots]].
** In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'', we have the naive Handmaiden as the child, saucy Mira as the seductress, and self-sacrificing Visas as the Wife.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'', resident MsFanservice Excellen Browning makes up a group called the "Three Beautiful Sisters", consisting of herself, Viletta Vadim and Lamia Loveless. Lamia is the Child (due to her recent discovery of what it's like to be a human, made more obvious in Original Generations when she gains a SplitPersonality that sounds like a little girl), Viletta is the Wife (she's the sensible and capable commander of the SRX Team), and Excellen as the Seductress ([[MsFanservice bloody obvious]]).
** Among Excellen's [[CloningBlues clones]], this trope also applies: Alfimi as the innocent yet CreepyChild, Lemon as the sensible right hand of Vindel Mauser, and Excellen still as the Seductress.
* The Women Fighters Team from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' has the [[{{Stripperiffic}} half-naked]] [[{{Ninja}} kunoichi]] '''[[MsFanservice Mai]]''' as the seductress, [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]] [[CuteBruiser karateka]] '''[[{{Moe}} Yuri]]''' as the Child and [[{{Bokukko}} tomboyish]] [[KickChick kickboxer]] '''[[PromotionToParent King]]''' as the wife.
** The Highschool Girls team from KOF 2003 had Athena Asamiya as the Wife (more experienced membress, leader of the group, IdolSinger who sings to keep the spirits of her fans high no matter what), Hinako Shinjou as the Child (naive, SpoiledSweet, a CuteBruiser who wants to show how girls can do what they wish) and Malin as the Sedductress (CombatPragmatist, outspoken, veeeeery short MagicSkirt)
** Alternatively, in KOF 96 and KOF 97 there are some changes to the Women's Team's roster and they fit in here as well. KOF 96 has [[BadassAdorable Kasumi]] [[SpiritedCompetitor Todoh]] replacing Yuri as the Child, and in KOF 97 [[TheOjou Chizuru]] [[{{Miko}} Kagura]] becomes a secondary Wife.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has [[RobotGirl Aigis]] as the Child -- guiding the plot without knowing why -- Elizabeth as the Wife -- providing guidance and {{Side Quest}}s to help the hero grow stronger -- and as the seductress, [[spoiler:the BigBad Nyx, who's trying to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt through coaxing humanity across the DespairEventHorizon.]]
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' also has its own trio of girls, which are Yukiko ([[YamatoNadeshiko quiet, delicate, and responsible]] wife), Chie ([[{{Shorttank}} spunky, impulsive, and tomboyish]] child), and Rise ([[TheDitz playful, cheery, and naive]] seductress). If we use the description from the Final Fantasy example, it also fits their [[EvilTwin shadows]] too in that Yukiko's shadow is The Innocent Virgin Princess (literally, [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses complete with castle, pink dress, knights and all]]), Chie's shadow is Tough But Sexy (how else could you describe a [[FetishFuel dominatrix]]?), and Rise's shadow being The Perky Jailbait (to the point of {{squick}}, and even the main character's homeroom teacher refers to her as such).
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'', the three Oracles (shown in the page image) are Din, an outgoing dancer (seductress); Nayru, a gentle singer (wife); and Farore, a helpful intellectual (child). Unfortunately, the game which was supposed to feature Farore was cancelled. Incidentally, the Oracles share their names with a trio of goddesses in the series mythology (the goddesses of power, wisdom, and courage, respectively), but we don't know enough about them to know if they match the trope.
%%* The three original female personalities in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'': Peppy is child, Normal is wife, Snooty (who is implied to [[ReallyGetsAround Really Get Around]]) is seductress.
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' there is an interesting twist on it; [[CombatMedic Tear]] is the Wife (if somewhat [[DefrostingIceQueen cold]]) due to her nurturing aspects and status as the LoveInterest to TheHero, but the TokenMiniMoe [[GoldDigger Anise]] is the Seductress with her flirting and BitchInSheepsClothing tendencies, while Natalia is the Child through her IdiotBall moments and naivite compared to the other two (not to mention her main goal in life revolves around a ChildhoodMarriagePromise).
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', you have Estelle (Innocent Virgin {{Princess}}), Judith (Tough But [[MsFanservice Sexy]]), and Rita ([[{{Tsundere}} Perky]] Jailbait).
* [[VideoGameRemake The DS update]] of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' gives the hero three brides to choose from: Bianca (the [[PluckyGirl child]]), Nera (the [[ProperLady Wife]]), and Debora (the [[RichBitch seductress]]).
* In ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' there are several all-female {{Power Trio}}s, but the one that fits in the best is the Pegasus Knight sisters from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]''. The Wife is the eldest sister Fiora (who even tends to be overprotective and strict), middle sister Farina is The Seductress (strongwilled, materialistic, yet [[{{Tsundere}} with a hidden gentle side]]) and the Child is little sister Florina (ShrinkingViolet)
** All of the girls that can potentially be fathered by Chrom count as this in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': Patient and serious Lucina is the wife, strong-willed and rough Kjelle the seductress, and clumsy, innocent Cynthia the child. Heck, even Chrom's wife choices themselves can be this: Robin and Sumia (wife), Sully and Maribelle (seductress), and Olivia (child).
** Present with the Nohrian princesses in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': flirtatious Camilla is the seductress (with some heavy touches of Wife since she's also very protective of her siblings and the TeamMom of Nohr), cheerful and energetic Elise is the child, and melancholy but compassionate Azura is the Wife. The Hoshidan princesses fit this as well; [[ChildOfTwoWorlds Azura]] is the wife again, sweet and shy Sakura is the child, and fiery and independent Hinoka is the seductress.
*** The three {{action girl}}s who serve under the male lords fit as well: Takumi's motherly and skilled at sewing subordinate Oboro is the Wife, Ryoma's no-nosense and busty subordinate Kagerou is the seductress, and Xander's CutePsycho subordinate Pieri is the Child.
* Regarding the mistresses of ''VideoGame/OverlordII'': Kelda would serve as the child (least evil of the Mistresses and the only one to actually love The Witch-Boy), Juno the seductress (GoldDigger) and [[spoiler:[[FallenHero Queen Fay]]]] is the Wife figure (the one most "Equal" to the Witch-Boy).
* The NOL girls of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. Noel is shy, innocent and idealistic (the Child), Tsubaki is level-headed and academic (the Wife), and Makoto is the most [[MsFanservice blatantly fanservicey]] (the Seductress).
** The past arc in the Magic Guild girls too: Caelica the bright younger sister girl, Trinity the sensible, if bookish one, and Nine the fiery and buxom one.
* The three playable women in ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'':
** Child - Katt's personality is up-beat, innocent, impulsive, and a little bit dim.
** Seductress - Bleu is the overtly mature one with flirty dialog and a stripperiffic costume.
** Wife - Nina is the favored love interest for the protagonist, she is often the voice of reason and is compassionate and graceful, as well as a being bit maternal towards her younger sister.
* The ladies of ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' fit this trope.
** Marle is the child, maintaining her naivety and innocence through most of the game.
** Lucca is the wife, smart and sensible and always the voice of reason.
** Ayla is the seductress, flirting with both Crono and [[OfficialCouple Kino]], a [[IntimateHealing kiss ability]], as well as wearing the least amount of [[FurBikini clothes]].
%%* In ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'', if players pair up [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfValkyrie Valkyrie]] with [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]] and [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]], then Morrigan invokes this trope with Valkyrie being "the child", Morrigan being the "seductress" and Chun-Li being "the wife". Except with a twist:
%%--> '''Morrigan:''' We're a team of beautiful women that brings together allure, innocence, and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers savagery.]]
%%--> '''Valkyrie:''' Thank you. Let's all do our best together.
%%--> '''Chun-Li:''' Hey, would you mind explaining what quality applies to each of us!?

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has Ilya as the Child (acts very precocious and is literally stuck in a child's body), Arturia as the Wife (partner to TheHero and eventually enters into a relationship with him), while both Rin and Sakura have different aspects of the Seductress (Rin is virginal yet very headstrong and independent, while Sakura is sexually experienced [[spoiler:even if [[RapeAsDrama NOT by choice]] ]] but emotionally dependent).
** An alternative interpretation focusing on the heroines: Saber is the Child, unused to personal relationships and clinging to a childish ideal. Rin is the Seductress, competent and fiery but also insecure. Sakura is the Wife, sexually experienced and dedicated to the happiness of Shirou above her own.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'':
** OnlySaneWoman Mackenzie, ReallyGetsAround Brittnay, and {{Womanchild}} Trisha.
** OnlySaneWoman Shay, ReallyGetsAround Cameron, and TheBabyOfTheBunch Mikayla.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
%%* ''WesternAnimation/SkyDancers'': Ballerina Jade (Child); Creative dancer Camille (Wife); and Rockabilly diva Angelica (Seductress).
* The [[InSeriesNickname Dangerous Ladies]][=/=][[FanNickname Ozai's Angels]] on ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': The leader Azula is a ManipulativeBitch (seductress); Ty Lee is the sweet, affectionate, giggling {{Cloudcuckoolander}} (innocent); and Mai is eternally cool, calm, and collected ''and'' the only one in a committed relationship (wife).
** Though "[[BeachEpisode The Beach]]" actually muddles this a bit: while Azula can be brash and independent, she's actually really ''bad'' at flirting with guys. Ty Lee, meanwhile, is a bit of an (ambiguously) InnocentFanserviceGirl.
%%* WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}, Emma is the child, Fin is the wife, and Lo is the seductress.
%%* WesternAnimation/{{Pearlie}} is the child, Opal is the wife, and Saphira is the seductress.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' contains another GenderInvertedExample: The playful, jovial, energetic, [[ManChild child-like]] Ray, who shows little to no interest in women outside of grinning and blushing like mad around his old childhood crush, is the innocent; Peter, at the opposite end of the spectrum, is an incurable skirt-chaser and CasanovaWannabe; and the stoic, levelheaded, reliable Egon is the only one with a single, steady love interest.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Batman The Brave And The Bold}}'''s Birds of Prey. Black Canary is the easiest to get a rise out of and has the hardest time acting on her feelings for Bats- innocent. Catwoman is the seductress (a given). Huntress, who's pretty reserved throughout the other two's bickering, is wife.
