'''Basic Trope''': Fire, ice, and lightning as the core elements.
* '''Straight''': In the RPG Heroes Of Troperia, the three elements are fire, ice, and lightning.
* '''Exaggerated''': Everything in the game, even the {{Mon}}s, are fire, ice, or lightning-type.
* '''Downplayed''': The 3 elements have little effect to the gameplay.
* '''Justified''': These three are the most destructive elements in nature and thus are more favourable choices compared to others.
* '''Inverted''': In the RPG Heroes Of Troperia, the three elements are water, poison, and earth instead.
* '''Subverted''':
** More elements are used later - Earth and Wind join a FiveManBand+FourElementEnsemble and Dark, Light, Poison, Void, Wood, and Water are also elements.
** Fire, Lightning and... Water
** Fire, Ice, and Lightning seem to dominate the magical system until, about a quarter of the way through the game, a ''Sound'' mage shows up and brings the noise in a pretty vicious way.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** The world turns out to be made of these three elements, with the other two having little effect in gameplay.
** With the latter also having ice-related abilities.
** When the sound mage faces the players, sound magic is revealed to deal physical damage as opposed to elemental damage like fire, lightning and ice.
* '''Parodied''':
** In the RPG Heroes Of Troperia, it has ice-cream that comes in three different flavours: The elements Fire, Lightning and Ice!
** TheHero [[PlayingWithFire Blaze]] is caught in a LoveTriangle between BlackMagicianGirl [[ShockAndAwe Nariko]] and ChildhoodFriend [[AnIcePerson Yuki]]. Cue ElementalRivalry.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Fire, Ice and Lightning are only the first abilities the characters learn. Later, they also learn a bunch of other abilities. However, they still continue to use the three first most often and most effectively.
* '''Averted''':
** There's no system of Fire, Ice, and Lightning in Heroes Of Troperia.
** Fire, Ice, and Lightning are just three of several elements in the game, which also include Water, Shadow, Earth, Wind, Light, Metal, Sound, and more.
* '''Enforced''': They make the flashiest special effects.
* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': An ancient sage sets up a magic system using the 3 elements for future mages to use.
* '''Exploited''': The BigBad built his armor to withstand all 3 elements.
* '''Defied''': An ancient sage reminds his students that the magic system does not have to be limited to the 3 elements. He also encouraged them to go ahead and explore all other possible elements and create spells based on them.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Implied''': Troperia's three main areas as shown on the world map are a volcano, a glacier and a [[WorldintheSky series of floating islands]].
