'''Basic Trope''': Cup size indicates fighting strength.
* '''Straight''': Alice, who is not very busty, is WhiteMagicianGirl; Betty, who has B's, is the FragileSpeedster; Charlene, who has C's, is a decent fighter. Dorothy, sporting DD's, is a LightningBruiser.
* '''Exaggerated''': Any woman who has any fighting skill whatsoever has at least D-Cups.
* '''Downplayed''': The strongest fighter has the biggest breasts, but the differences are barely noticeable.
* '''Justified''':
** Dorothy is the oldest in a cast of teens, so it's natural that she'd be better endowed, as well as have more fighting experience and physical strength.
** Dorothy had been working out and building up her physical strength, largely as a way of adapting to the weight of her breasts.
** The appearance of large breasts comes from the [[AmazonianBeauty large pectoral muscles]] underneath those breasts.
** Dorothy is a BigEater who learned how to fight after getting tired of people making fun of her weight.
* '''Inverted''':
** Smaller breasts make better fighters, especially when they're hard to "[[BreastAttack aim at]]".
** Bigger breasts make better mages.
* '''Subverted''':
** Dorothy holds her own pretty well in battle, until she loses to Anna, who is an A-Cup.
** Dorothy has GagBoobs and is thought to be the ActionGirl that the party is seeking to recruit, but it turns out that she is a poor fighter, and the ActionGirl they are looking for is Alice, [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller who is]] [[{{Pettanko}} flat-chested.]]
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Anna was afterwards busted for cheating.
** The party learned later that Anna as Miss MilesGloriosus and Dorothy was heavily handicapped back then.
* '''Parodied''':
** Alice instantly becomes a better fighter after a boob job.
** Dorothy has huge fists for breasts.
** This trope is applied unisexually; all the men are incompetent fighters except for FatBastard Colin, whose fat accumulates ontp his chest.
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** Analyzing the Ability Parameters shows that Dorothy has the highest stamina of the girls. Even though she is an average fighter, she holds on her own the longest.
** As the fighter, Dorothy is an extreme GlassCannon. She is either the best or worst depending on how well she starts.
* '''Averted''': Fighting women come from all areas of the cup-size spectrum.
* '''Enforced''': The big boobs is to make sure the audience knows Dorothy, the tough fighter, is supposed to be a woman.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Be careful of that one, anyone who can fight and lug those things around is no joke".
* '''Invoked''': Esther got a boob job to become a better fighter.
* '''Exploited''':
** Prince [[TheCasanova Casanova]] often paints himself get as a [[DamselInDistress Gentleman in Distress]] or attends the finals during the TournamentArc. He does this in hopes attracting the [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow attentions]] of the strongest lady fighters, [[BlatantLies for bodyguards]], especially since he could be certain of their physical attributes.
** The BigBad looks out for the flattest and the most buxom of ladies, keeping track of who could be strong [[TheHero enemies]] or {{bodyguard|Babes}}s.
* '''Defied''': "I can't fight with these things!"
* '''Discussed''': "No woman would fight hanging out like that".
* '''Conversed''': "No wonder she's so strong. Fighting with a chest that big is probably one hell of a workout".
* '''Deconstructed''': While a skilled fighter, Dorothy can't fight at her full potential because of her breasts. However, she's willing to take that risk since her breasts have made her popular with the guys.
* '''Reconstructed''': Normally Dorothy's breasts would get in the way in a fight, but thanks to a special sports bra made for her, she can fight at her full potential.
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': It's supposed to be symbolic for something. [[TheDitz Clyde]], a fan of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Fantasmic]]'', guesses "Maybe it represents muscle?"
* '''Played For Laughs''': Not only do larger breasts make her a better fighter and physically stronger overall, the breasts ''themselves'' possess considerable strength and are actually '''invincible''', meaning she can destroy all her enemies by hitting them ''with'' her breasts. She doesn't even ''need'' to work on her arms or legs. She still does, but not for fighting reasons.
