'''Basic Trope''': A Mary Sue/Marty Stu that is ridiculously powerful.
* '''Straight''': Lily knows every martial art known to man, can survive getting stabbed in the head, and kills the BigBad with a single punch.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Lily can kill 100 people from 1,000 miles away just by thinking and can teleport in and out of existence.
** Bob can [[CessationofExistence make his enemies completely cease to exist]] just by raising his eyebrow.
* '''Downplayed''': Lily is a BoringInvincibleHero who almost manages to keep the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. They only have a hard time suspending their disbelief for one or two fight scenes.
* '''Justified''':
** Lily is actually God!
** Lily [[IJustWantToBeBadass wanted to be a badass all her life]] and has now gained new {{Reality Warp|er}}ing powers.
** Lily is a part of an advanced race of superhuman beings who are capable of doing such things.
** Lily is an EldritchAbomination from another dimension or universe.
** Lily has been taking a new SuperSerum each and every day for a thousand years.
* '''Inverted''':
** [[FailureHero Lily]] is so useless and incompetent that her incompetence goes way beyond the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.
** Lily is a CosmicPlaything
* '''Subverted''':
** It turns out the story is being told by an UnreliableNarrator and Lily only knows one or two martial arts, survived a stab to the torso, and defeated the BigBad with a sword, not a punch.
** Bob is worse than useless in actual combat, but neither he nor anyone else knows this because [[FakeUltimateHero his reputation alone sends all enemies running away screaming in terror]]. Thus, he never has to actually fight anyone.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** But Lily is the real UnreliableNarrator because she wants to trick the BiggerBad into thinking she's just a warrior with average fighting skills.
** When Bob actually is attacked by an enemy, he [[AccidentalHero blunders his way into victory]], further cementing his reputation.
* '''Parodied''':
** God Man is an omnipotent, omniscient superhero whose plans are either comically simple or complex to the point of absurdity[[note]] or just look at the trope image[[/note]].
** Lily is literally {{god mod|e}}ing herself through life.
** Lily goes to the point [[AGodAmI she declares herself as a god]].
* '''Zig Zagged''': Lily opens the console and toggles god mode on and off on occasion.
* '''Averted''':
** Lily is powerful, but believably so.
** Bob is a three dimensional character with realistic flaws.
* '''Enforced''':
** The author wants to live out their fantasies of being a total {{badass}} through the [[AuthorAvatar main character]].
** Author's reasoning:\\
1) I like Lily.\\
2) Lily's a total badass.\\
3) Therefore the more badass my character is, the more awesome (s)he will be.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Really Lily? You're just making the rest of us look bad!"
* '''Invoked''': Lily does some experiments on Bob in order to make him a God Mode Sue SuperSoldier.
* '''Exploited''': AliceAndBob just let Lily do all the work, her being all godly and stuff.
* '''Defied''':
** [[FourthWallObserver Lily]] [[GenreSavvy knowing]] [[FromBeyondTheFourthWall the audience]] [[WhoWritesThisCrap will hate her]] or that [[VictoryIsBoring things will get boring]] pretty fast if she doesn't have any realistic flaws; goes out of her way to become a more flawed a person, trying out new flaws to see which one sticks.
** Bob feels that [[HonorBeforeReason his powers give him an unfair advantage]], [[BroughtDowntoNormal so he renounces them and lives as a typical mortal]].
* '''Discussed''':
--> '''Bob:''' "Hey Lily, if you can take down 90 people on your own, why the hell do you need me!?"\\
'''Lily:''' "What if there's 91 people?"
* '''Conversed''': "And so, the adventures of the untouchable, transcendent Lily continues to not be worth watching since you know she will never get hurt."
