'''Basic Trope''': An army of elite fighters, all females.
* '''Straight''': The {{Valkyries}}' Squad is a highly trained team of women (and no men).
* '''Exaggerated''': The Valkyries' Squad makes a point of notifying the masses that they are exclusively women-only.
* '''Downplayed''': The majority of the Valkyries' Squad's membership is female. There are a few men.
* '''Justified''':
** The squad organizer has recognized that mixing men with women would run the risk of having unwanted romances get in the way, and there were more women available than men.
** There is circumstances, such as TheVirus, which only affects men, and thus it is safer to organize a squad of women to fight the BigBad or said circumstances.
** Special Victims Unit dealing with {{Sex Slave}}s or other group that has reason to be distrustful of men.
** A female leader needs bodyguards who can go where men aren't allowed, to prevent assassins CampingACrapper.
** The squad is, for one reason or another, forbidden from having male soldiers.
** Alternatively, the squad is ''not'' forbidden to have any men on board, [[ContrivedCoincidence but all the members just happen to be women]].
** They're from [[LadyLand a society of literal Amazons]], where men are prohibited from fighting (or existing).
* '''Inverted''': The Valkyries' Squad's rivals, the {{Troll}} Squad, is composed of all men.
* '''Subverted''':
** The Valkyries' Squad announces its newest member... [[TheOneGuy A man]].
** One of the members is not a woman, but a [[DudeLooksLikeALady dude who looks like one]].
* '''Double Subverted''':
** That new member is actually another woman; [[LadyLooksLikeADude she just looked like a man]] [[UnsettlingGenderReveal from a distance.]]
** The feminine-looking male of the group [[GenderBender turns into a woman]].
** Alternatively, The Valkyries' Squad, which were though by many to be CastFullOfPrettyBoys, [[UnsettlingGenderReveal turns out actually]] to be an all-{{Bifauxnen}} squad.
** The male member of the squad doesn't last long, either dying or getting kicked out in short order. They never hire a man again.
* '''Parodied''': Any men attempting to [[DoubleEntendre get a piece of the action]] are shot on sight.
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** The Valkyries' Squad's lineup is constantly changing, and it's sometimes all-female and sometimes fairly evenly mixed.
** The squad is so secretive that even its members' genders are unknown. There are rumors that all of them are women, but others claim to have known males who were members, and nobody can be sure of the truth anymore.
* '''Averted''': The squads are all mixtures of men and women.
* '''Enforced''': "This show is marketed towards women, so let's have a fighting squad fully of women."
* '''Lampshaded''': "Not one man in the squad? What do they do for fun?"
* '''Invoked''':
** "Fire all the men and hire women in their place. NOW."
** The Valkyries' Squad isn't formed just of a certain group of females... it (and a few others) contain ''all'' the women in the army, specifically to avoid intra-squad discrimination.
* '''Exploited''': The Valkyries' Squad is formed to fight against enemies who WouldNotHitAGirl.
* '''Defied''': The squad make sure to recruit exactly 50% men and 50% women.
* '''Discussed''': "They're called the Valkyries' Squad? Does that mean they're all women?" "Do you know your Norse Mythology or not?"
* '''Conversed''': "There sure are lots of women in the Valkyries' Squad." "Of course! [[{{Amazon Chaser}} Why else would we be watching this?]]"
* '''Deconstructed''': Valkyries' Squad is deployed to a region with incredibly misogynistic insurgents. Since they do not fall in a traditional gender role, they are targeted more often than other squads, and suffer heavier casualties.
* '''Reconstructed''': Valkyries' Squad is an elite branch of the military assigned to higher risk missions. Thus, the higher causality rate. The squad was deployed in a misogynistic area on the reasoning they would be underestimated.
* '''Implied''': All the Valkyries wear PoweredArmor that makes figuring out their respective sexes a little difficult, but at least one of them has been the subject of SamusIsAGirl and the name certainly seems to imply a pattern...
* '''Played For Drama''': Valkyries' Squad is deployed domestically. Upon experiencing discrimination in their own country, they become disillusioned and go rogue.
* '''Plot Foundation''': [[TheOneGuy Bob]] is assigned to the Valkyries' Squad, which forms the basis for AVerySpecialEpisode via a PerspectiveFlip.
