'''Basic Trope''': In traditional sense, a girl who tends a (Shinto) shrine and appeases the deities it houses.
* '''Straight''': Himiko, the girl who tends Asamiya, the local Shinto shrine in the neighborhood.
* '''Exaggerated''': Asamiya is as huge as ''the Angkor Wat'', it has thousands of believers, and Himiko is regarded as a living goddess.
* '''Downplayed''': ???
* '''Justified''': Himiko's family has been tending the Asamiya since the antiquity.
* '''Inverted''':
** Himiko's big brother Masahiko, the kannushi (male Shinto priest) who tends Asamiya.
** Himiko is an oni that destroys shrines on regular basis.
** Patriarchs of Abrahamic religions (i.e. the Pope or the Ayatollah).
* '''Subverted''':
** Himiko isn't really a Miko, she's just a CosplayOtakuGirl.
** Alternatively, "Himiko" turns out to be [[DudeLooksLikeALady a very effeminate guy...]]
* '''Double Subverted''':
** But when she's at home, she's actually a Miko.
** ... who then changes his gender and keeps tending the shrine.
* '''Parodied''': "Magical ShrineMaiden Himiko! With the power of the gods, I shall cleanse thy impurities!"
* '''Zig Zagged''': Himiko isn't really a Miko, she's just a CosplayOtakuGirl. But when she's at home, she's actually a Miko. Except that the "shrine" is a tourist attraction. But then, she is often NotHerself...
* '''Averted''': Despite having ShrinesAndTemples, not a single Miko is in sight. *sigh*
* '''Enforced''': The work panders to Otaku who has Miko fetish.
* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': Bob, visiting a Shinto shrine to find authentic ShrineMaiden "like in those MoeMoe animes".
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': The chief priest of Asamiya forbids women from tending the shrine.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Deconstructed''': Himiko doesn't like being a ShrineMaiden. It's outdated, and most people see her as a weird oracle of some sort.
* '''Reconstructed''': The gods are [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} highly responsive to prayers]], so Himiko keeps the job.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Kathy, a CosplayOtakuGirl from the USA, [[FunnyForeigner tries being a Miko for a week]].
* '''Unintentional Troping''': The clash between the old and the new is depicted when Himiko walk the streets of Tokyo in Miko attire.
