->''"Blossom, commander and the leader\\
Bubbles, she is the joy and the laughter\\
Buttercup, she is the toughest fighter"''
-->--'''Ending theme''', ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''

A group dynamic trope, a type of female PowerTrio where [[TheSmartGuy one is smart]], [[TheBigGuy one is tough]], and one is conventionally [[TheChick pretty, popular or feminine]].

Often, to give "Beauty" a useful skill, she also acts as the TeamMom, TheKirk, or [[TheHeart the mediator when the other two get into their frequent fights]]. In other cases, she is the [[TheFace one who is]] ''[[TheFace socially]]'' [[TheFace adept and empathetic]], while "Brains" has technical skills but is sometimes nerdy or socially awkward.

The personalities might also be what the FreudianTrio used to be described as:
* '''Brawn''' -- body or the impulsive, pleasure-seeking one
* '''Brain''' -- mind or the academic, reasonable one
* '''Beauty''' -- heart or the one who ties them together, as the calming, healing influence

In other words, the Brawn represents the [[TheMcCoy Id]], the Brain represents the [[TheSpock Superego]], and the Beauty represents the [[TheKirk Ego]].

[[BlondeBrunetteRedhead Often]] ColorCodedForYourConvenience as the BrainyBrunette, the FieryRedhead and the [[BrainlessBeauty beautiful but]] DumbBlonde (keeping with giving them a skill, sometimes they can also be an example of HairOfGoldHeartOfGold). Contrast though as the BlondeBrunetteRedhead tend to be portrayed as flaws while Beauty, Brains and Brawn are good.

When they form a BigThinShortTrio, the big one will almost invariably be the brawn. When they form a TownGirls trio, usually the femme one will be the beauty, the butch one will be the brawn, and the neither will be the brains.

** Artemis - Goddess of the Hunt (Brawn)
* ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'': The new trio act as this. In a subversion, they all fit the roles to various extents.
** Wayne - Normally the Beauty due to his instinctive understanding of sociology and likable personality. Not to mention the fact that as a MasterOfDisguise, if someone doesn't like his personality, he has spares. His secondary role is as the Brawn; his HealingFactor and time manipulation abilities make him powerful in unarmed combat, but he quickly becomes overwhelmed with numbers. On the other hand, he is ''not'' the Brain. He considers higher learning to be anything that doesn't involve getting punched in the face.
** Marasi - Normally the Brains, as she has a broad education in sociology, criminology, and law. Her secondary role is Beauty; while she does have trouble applying her sociology education to real life, people are generally amicable to a pretty girl. She is not the Brawn, though that is more OvershadowedByAwesome. She's a good shot with a rifle, but she doesn't have the combat instincts to survive a prolonged gunfight.
** Wax - Normally the Brawn, ImprobableAimingSkills combined with his supernatural abilities make him a OneManArmy; the villain of the first book notes that he's wasted as anything but a killer, because he's just so unspeakably good at it. To a lesser extent, he's the Brain; when he was a lawman in the Roughs, he had no choice but to learn to do detective work and investigation on his own. But he's not the Beauty; he's all right at talking to people, but he relies too much on the force of his reputation to be as effective as he could be.

* Elderly versions in Yulia Voznesenskaya's ''There Lived an Old Lady Who Wore Green Boots'':

** Varvara "Varezhka" (Brawn) is the healthiest and toughest (and fattest) of the three women.

* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' witches (in addition to being TheHecateSisters):
** Granny Weatherwax: Brains (the leader [or not - witches don't have leaders and Granny would be the first to tell other witches that] and the best at using "headology".)
** Nanny Ogg: Brawn (the most likely to use physical force on a villain and also very much "[[DirtyOldWoman impulsive and pleasure seeking]]".)
** Magrat Garlick: Beauty (well, "decently plain", but the youngest and the one who ties the other two together: "[[Discworld/{{Maskerade}} Without Magrat, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg got on one another's nerves. With her, all three had been able to get on the nerves of absolutely everyone else in the whole world, which had been a lot more fun."]])

* ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'': A RareMaleExample with the Sicilian Crowd.

** Juri - Brawn (The most psychotic and violent female character of the series who enjoys [[BloodKnight fighting and killing like it was just a casual hobby]]).

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', if you discount MissionControl Rise, (who would otherwise be a secondary Beauty), then you get:
** Chie: Brawn (Tomboyish KickChick)
** Yukiko: Beauty (feminine, elegant, in charge of healing magic)
** [[spoiler:Naoto]]: Brains (the most intelligent of the group, but also incredibly shy)
** Also a genderswapped version for Yu's male allies: Teddie (in his human form at least) being the Beauty, Yosuke (being one of the more strategic and helpful members) as the Brains, and Kanji (the big, scary, strongarm capable of throwing around folded chairs) as the Brawn.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'''s female cast is a little debatable (again, discounting Fuuka, the MissionControl character [[spoiler: and Metis, since she's an extension of Aigis anyway, and also fills the same role]]):
** Aigis: Definitely the Brawn, being a superpowered RobotGirl (and one of two characters who only has physical-type offensive skills.)
** Yukari: Could be the Beauty, due to being the healer of the group, and because her [[spoiler: trying to go back to the fight against Nyx again to try and save the Protagonist]] in The Answer causes the group to splinter.
** Mitsuru: The Brains, being the smartest of the group, but also shares the Beauty role with Yukari, being an {{Ojou}} and TeamMom.

* ''VideoGame/Persona5'': Once again, if you discount MissionControl Futaba (who would have be the secondary Brains), then you get:
** Ann: Beauty (A fashion model who serves as the MsFanservice of this game)
** Haru: Brawn (A little debatable as while she may be a Beauty at first, her BloodKnight tendencies could make her a Brawn instead)
** Makoto: Brains (The StudentCouncilPresident who makes excellent grades at her school)
** A gender-inverted version of this trope for Joker's male allies if you exclude [[GuestStarPartyMember Akechi]]: Morgana (the MentorMascot who happens to know a lot about the Metaverse) being the Brains, Ryuji (who is very loud and impulsive) as the Brawn, and Yusuke (who is very obsessed with art) being the Beauty.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''
** Mei Ling - Beauty (Snake's Radio Support and among the cutest girls of the series.)

** Clover - Beauty. A ValleyGirl who is easily the most boy crazy of the group.
