'''Basic Trope''': The peacekeeping and "spiritual" aspect of the FiveManBand. By tradition this role is female, the [[TheSmurfettePrinciple token girl]].
* '''Straight''': Alice is the peacekeeper and balances out the other members' aggressive behaviour.
* '''Exaggerated''': Alice lives a world full of ([[CastFullOfPrettyBoys probably pretty]]) men and is basically [[MessianicArchetype Jesus]] to them.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice is capable of fighting, but her primary role is keeping the team together.
* '''Justified''':
** [[TheLeader Bob]], [[TheLancer Charlie]], [[TheBigGuy Dan]], and [[TheSmartGuy Edd]] needed their fifth to be female so they would [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday look straight]].
** For one reason or another, WomenAreWiser is in play and so the four guys bring along a girl.
* '''Inverted''':
** DarkChick
** The FiveManBand with the Legendary Leader, complete with his {{Love Interest|s}} The [[MessianicArchetype Messianic]], [[TheDitz Ditzy]] CuteWitch Alice, who is assumed to be TheChick. Alice is then revealed to be the Genius LightningBruiser of the group. Her love interest is actually a LeaderWannabe.
** Alice is most aggressive and confrontational member of the team as well as the least spiritual. She also often directly starts most of the conflicts within the group, almost tearing the group apart at one point.
** Alice is the [[TheSmurfettePrinciple token girl]]... And also the TokenEvilTeammate.
* '''GenderFlipped''': TheOneGuy in the team who takes a non-combative role.
* '''Subverted''': Alice is introduced as a girl who wears extremely girly clothes and really cute pigtails but in episode 2 we find out that she's a GirlyBruiser who argues with the rest of the group.
* '''Double Subverted''': ... until she learns AnAesop about the importance of teamwork and dedicates herself to not only being useful on the field, but also calming arguments among the band members.
* '''Parodied''': A pink neon sign proclaiming 'The Chick' hovers over Alice's head.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice looks cute and is stated to be the team's peacekeeper, but turns out to be a LittleMissBadass who just happens to have feminine interests and her "peacekeeping" amounts to the DopeSlap. Then she undergoes CharacterDevelopment to be more caring and understanding but gets burned when tries to use on an enemy and becomes the most belligerent of the group. She ultimately settles on WarriorTherapist.
* '''Averted''': Every teammate has a chick trait in them, so there's no definite "chick".
* '''Enforced''':
** The executives want at least one [[TheSmurfettePrinciple Token Girl]] thrown into the mix.
** In this Yaoi Action series, a quarter in to the series, the producers decide to put in Alice as a SelfInsert {{Ascended Fan|boy}}girl.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Sometimes I feel like the guys recruited me just to have someone mediate their {{cock fight}}ing."
* '''Invoked''':
** TheLeader thinks TheTeam needs a woman's touch, so he brings TheCutie Alice into the fold.
** Hero needs [[TheMedic a medic]] so he decides to turn Lancer female.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': Alice doesn't want to seem like a GirlyGirl, so she tries to bulk up to [[OneOfTheBoys fit in with the boys]].
* '''Conversed''': "You know how TV Shows usually have girls be the peacekeeper? Why is that?"
* '''Discussed''': "Why do I have to be the one who spends more time resolving disputes in the group than battling?" "Because that's your role."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Alice becomes sick and tired of being with four disgusting boys and leaves the group.
** The boys treat Alice differently because of her gender, thinking of her only as "the Girl" and dismissing her opinion. Naturally, this creates a rift in the team that further reinforces the gender barrier, until Alice finally snaps and calls them out.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Alice joins a five female band where she is the lone GirlyGirl in a group of {{Tomboy}}s.
** The boys agree to take her advice and let her arbitrate their disputes, but she's still just "the girl".
* '''Played For Laughs''':
** The cast is filled with muscle-bound tough guys... Save for Alice the TokenMiniMoe, who provides an amusing contrast with the hulking heroes.
** The guys literally act like babies and Alice has to feed them with their baby-bottles, clean up all their messes and stop them before they do [[TooDumbToLive something stupidly lethal]]. [[BadlyBatteredBabysitter Hilarity ensues.]]
* '''Played For Drama''': The story focuses on Alice's struggle to keep four hot blooded and short tempered male warriors from killing each other, while also fumbling with her relationship to them.
Back to TheChick before your manly teammates kill each other.
