'''Basic Trope''': TheHero is strong without having to work for it because they're ''special''.
* '''Straight''': Miki is TheChosenOne who must eventually face [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Sangria]]. Instead of training to hone her vast powers, she just naturally develops them [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday as she gets older]].
* '''Exaggerated''': Miki actively avoids work whenever possible, yet is gifted with phenomenal cosmic powers.
* '''Downplayed''': Miki coasts through her training, but she's the best in the entire school.
* '''Justified''':
** Miki ''is'' already on her hero's journey; the battles and challenges she faces along the way are helping to hone her abilities in lieu of focused training.
** Working ''harder'' isn't always equivalent to working ''smarter''. Consequentially, Miki follows a training style that emphasizes efficiency of the spent effort and time, making her superior to anyone who only increases the quantity of either or both.
** Her power level doubles with each use, so she just pulls a [[{{Whoring}} Johnny-One-Spell]] with "Heroic Deed".
** [[HeroicRROD The limit of Miki's powers is set by how long it'll take her powers to destroy her, which is inevitable.]] Focused training is more likely to ''shorten'' the amount of time she has left, and the time is better spent mitigating the damage her powers have already done to her...or at ''least'' averting ThereAreNoTherapists so she'll be as well-adjusted as possible, considering.
* '''Inverted''':
** Miki is TheChosenOne, but must [[TrainingFromHell work much]] ''[[TrainingFromHell harder]]'' than her peers to get stronger.
** No advantage holds up against hard work no matter how insurmountable the disadvantage against privileged foes. Hard-working paraplegics are able to out-speed sports cars without so much as a wheelchair.
* '''Subverted''':
** At first it looks like she can easily defeat Queen Sangria, but after a first-episode defeat she ends up training alongside everyone else.
** Her relatively relaxed training schedule takes its toll when her more diligent compatriots overtake her.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** ...However, it's later revealed that her gifts just make her naturally stronger and let her breeze through the exercises.
** ...only for her to overtake them again in no time when she starts training seriously.
* '''Parodied''': The show has a TrainingMontage where her friends go through TrainingFromHell to grow strong enough to form a HeroSecretService, intercut with scenes of Sangria herself exercising her vast powers in preparation for their fight. Everyone wonders what super secret training Miki is going through to [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential unlock her true power]], and speculate she's pushing herself in her training, so they in turn train harder. What's Miki doing through all this time? Watching reruns of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' and eating potato chips and cream soda.
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** Miki doesn't do hard work and randomly switches from ultra-powerful to HowDoIShotWeb.
** [[SoLastSeason A new type of power source or technique set introduced]] is more powerful than everything in the team's arsenal so they start training for that. Miki suddenly finds that she's {{Not So Above It All}} when she's suddenly struggling to keep up.
* '''Averted''':
** Miki works just as hard as everyone else to become stronger.
** Miki [[CharacterShilling is talked long and hard]] about having TheGift but Roger (a 20-year combat veteran and the guy who's been training the rest of the cast) gives her a hard-core CurbStompBattle every time they fight because he's got plenty of experience (not all of it in the field of being a CombatPragmatist, although acting like one sure as hell helps, especially once she actually starts putting her own training to good use).
* '''Enforced''': With a limited airtime period, the show producers decide to skip Miki's training montages and just show her beating up tougher and tougher monsters.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Why aren't you training Miki? Queen Sangria attacks tomorrow!" "Oh please, we ''both'' know I'll beat her when [[HeroicResolve she holds you hostage]], I spontaneously [[PowerGivesYouWings grow wings]] thanks to ThePowerOfLove, discover I'm actually a {{Dhampir}}, my mentor gives me a PowerCrystal, or something even ''less'' fair helps me win."
* '''Invoked''':
** Steroids.
** Queen Sangria purposely sets all her minions one rung lower on the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil / SortingAlgorithmOfVillainThreat to lull Miki into a false sense of security and complacency, so when they both fight she'll have an edge.
** TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness who granted Miki her powers specifically made them increase on their own as a "fail safe" to make sure she beats Queen Sangria.
* '''Exploited''': Since she doesn't need to train to increase her powers, Miki uses the time she ''would'' spend training to get a degree instead. Once Queen Sangria is defeated, she easily transitions to civilian life as a lawyer.
* '''Defied''':
** Miki realizes her immense potential means she's likely to slack off, so she finds/hires a mentor or trainer to help her training be an actual challenge.
** William (TheLeader) flat-out refuses to use her as the central part of any plan nor will accept having her on his team, TheGift be damned, unless she undergoes training. He is no fool, even when everybody else sings nothing but praises for the RookieRedRanger.
* '''Discussed''': "I worry about Miki not training. Sure, she always wins and is stronger than everyone else, but what kind of message is that to the children? Just think how resentful the rest of her teammates are! Queen Sangria will DivideAndConquer us."
* '''Conversed''': "Do the superheroes in this show even ''do'' anything to keep up their strength?"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Since she doesn't have to work for her immense powers and knows that she's TheChosenOne, Miki becomes snobby and narcissistic, looking down upon those who ''require'' training. This creates a rift between Miki and the very people she's supposed to save one day, leading to [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer others rejecting and]] [[BullyingADragon belittling her]]. When the time comes for her to finally face Queen Sangria, she's overconfident and underprepared, leading to her getting trounced.
** Since Miki was doing so well without training, people significantly less skilled try following her steps. Disaster ensues.
** Time after time of Miki saving the day without training causes her hard-working comrades to just give up and settle for being [[WeAreTeamCannonFodder canon fodder]] until she [[HoldingOutForAHero inevitably comes to the battle]]. Now Miki finally has something she has to continuously maintain-- her reputation and forced trump card role.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Miki feels alienated from her peers ''because'' of her immense power, so she purposely avoids training to stay near their level. Effectively, she's a super-''super'' human who [[IJustWantToBeNormal wants to be just "super"]]. Eventually, her mentor and friends will [[WhatTheHellHero remind her]] that WithGreatPower she must ''also'' train a great deal to save the world.
** Just because Miki doesn't get much out of hard training doesn't mean that she can't work hard in some other helpful capacity. It just means that while her friends are training, she's helping out with Habitat for Humanity or running soup kitchens or cleaning up highways--non-training work that still needs to be done.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Miki exaggerates the fact by flaunting enemies with pictures/video/TrashTalk of her goofing off while they work to get their power... and once they're good and angry, lures them into a DefensiveFeintTrap. She goes on to point out that just because she gets more power with less effort, she's neither dumb nor lazy.
* '''Played For Drama''': Miki's peers come to [[TheResenter deeply resent]] how she's coasting along on her natural gifts, while the rest of them [[CantCatchUp simply can't match her]]. Several [[RivalTurnedEvil defect to Queen Sangria's side]], lured by blessings of demonic power and strength, and become her [[EliteMooks loyal followers]]. Upon learning of this, Miki has a HeroicBSOD.
We'd send you back to HardWorkHardlyWorks, but it would conflict with our "no training" lifestyle.
