"Together, it was as if we formed one single, complete person.Related to both The Three Faces of Eve and Four-Temperament Ensemble. Unrelated, however, to Four is Death. Usually. This particular ensemble typically consists of:
Wild, unstoppable Bridget.
Shy and beautiful Lena.
Tibby, the rebel.
And me, Carmen, the writer."
Wild, unstoppable Bridget.
Shy and beautiful Lena.
Tibby, the rebel.
And me, Carmen, the writer."
- A sweet-naive girl (usually The Ditz).
- A tomboyish one (usually a Deadpan Snarker).
- A sexy one (a Really Gets Around type or perhaps merely a glamour-obsessed pretty one).
- An admirable kind of character (usually the narrator and wise Team Mom of the group who holds it together).

Anime & Manga
- Hidamari Sketch centers around cheerful teen Yuno, Genki Girl Miyako, Hiro (weight-conscious "wife material"), and stoic writer Sae. It may no longer be one after the addition of Nori and Nazuna.
- Galaxy Angel has Milfeulle, the girly one; Forte, the Bifauxnen obsessed with firearms; Ranpha, the boy-crazy one; and Vanilla, the Emotionless Girl and silent observer.
- Magical Pokaan's four girls. Yuuma is the sweet and naive mage, Liru the tomboyish werewolf, the vain vampiress Pachira, and the calm observer android Aiko.
- School Rumble's primary cast locks up. Innocent and naive Tenma, tomboyish Mikoto, the Ojou Eri, and Akira, the silent, snarky observer.
- Natsuiro Kiseki's main four childhood friends. The stubborn and tomboyish Natsumi, the realist and mature Saki, the hyperactive and childish Yuka, and the laid-back and quiet Rinko.
- Lucky Star brings us two sets of four girls (they were even grouped as such in their Image Song releases).
- The first group has the sweet Cloud Cuckoo Lander Tsukasa, Otaku Surrogate Konata, Moe Meganekko Miyuki, and Deadpan Snarker Tsundere Kagami.
- The second group has cheerful Ill Girl Yutaka, the quiet Minami, Cosplay Otaku Girl Patricia and the most otaku of them all, Yuri Fan Hiyori.
- In the manga, the second group is in fact a three-group. Patricia does not become affiliated with Yutaka in any way until volume 7, and is just a minor recurring character, appearing only in Omake until that point.
- Since only about two members of its cast are male, Doujin Work also has an example. Innocent Sora, quiet Tsuyuri, tomboyish Najimi and the Office Lady Kaneru.
- R.O.D the TV plays with this. (See page image.) Broadly speaking, Anita is a cute Bratty Half-Pint, Maggie a Gentle Giant, Michelle Obliviously Beautiful, and Nenene the Team Mom. Past this point, though, the traits start being sorted out somewhat differently - Anita tends towards being a pragmatist when Michelle is The Ditz, and Maggie has more of a Sugar and Ice Personality while Nenene takes on the role of Deadpan Snarker.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad / Evil Counterpart team Schreient in the original Weiß Kreuz anime series, with Nanami/Tot as the sweet naive one, Asuka/Neu as the tough one, Karen/Schoen (German for beautiful) as the vain pretty one, and Chizuru/Hel as the sensible leader.
- It's notable that the four male protagonists of Weiss Kreuz fit the trope rather neatly as well, with Omi as the sweet naive one (at least compared to the others; given that all four are assassins, none of them can be very naive), Ken as the masculine tough guy, Yoji as the Handsome Lech, and Aya as - albeit not always the wise one — the one who tends to exert the most authority in times of uncertainty or disagreement. The roles become even more apparent in Weiss Kreuz: Gluhen with Sena replacing Omi as the sweet, naive one and Aya growing more fully into the role of the wisest and most emotionally balanced one.
- Sailor Moon.
- Ami/Mercury is The Smart One and The Quiet One, Rei/Mars is the Ojou and the Deadpan Snarker, Makoto/Jupiter is The Tomboy (in the anime) and the Team Mom (in the manga), and Minako/Venus combines The Sexy One and The Ditz.
- And so do the four Outer Senshi: Setsuna/Pluto is the Team Mom, Michiru/Neptune is The Quiet One and the Ojou, Haruka/Uranus is The Tomboy and the Deadpan Snarker, and Hotaru/Saturn is The Cutie.
- In Mobile Fighter G Gundam, Chibodee Crocket's "Angels" is a four girl ensemble. Shirley is the Team Mom, Cath is The Quiet One, Janet is the Genki Girl and Bunny is both a Meganekko and The Ditz (though she tries to do things right).
- Athrun's harem also count. Cagalli is the serious one, Meer is definitely the sexy one, Lunamaria is the Genki Girl and her sister Meyrin is The Quiet One.
- Mobile Suit Gundam 00's Bridge Bunnies in season 2. Sumeragi is the Team Mom, Feldt is The Quiet One, Mileina is the Genki Girl and Marie aka Souma is the friendly one.
- S.S. Astro has The Ditz Izumi, tomboyish Setsuna, Girly girlish Yuko, and mature(?) Kaname.
- K-On! has ditzy Yui, genki Ritsu, the outstandingly attractive though withdrawn Mio, and the very wealthy yet warm and friendly Mugi. Then Azusa joins the club.
- Red Garden has the sweet and shy Rose, the tomboyish Claire, the rich and fashionable Rachel, and the also rich but more reserved Kate.
- The Knight Sabers in Bubblegum Crisis — Nene is the cute naive one; Linna is a dancer with a different boyfriend every episode; Priss has the bad attitude and the tomboyish ways; and Sylia is the boss who keeps them all working together as a team.
- Played differently in Tokyo 2040 — Nene was still the cute one, Linna switched to The Quiet One, Priss was the mannish/straightforward one, and Sylia was the worldly one with severe issues under her smile.
- Fresh Pretty Cure!: excitable Love/Cure Peach, down-to-earth Miki/Cure Berry, introverted Inori/Cure Pine, and misunderstood yet tranquil former villain Setsuna/Cure Passion.
- A Certain Scientific Railgun has the Tomboy Misaka, the Ojou Kuroko, the Adorkable Uiharu and the one who tries to be a Genki Girl Saten.
- Tantei Opera Milky Holmes: Has The Ditz Sherlock/Sheryl, Bokukko Nero, Cloud Cuckoo Lander Cordelia and the Shrinking Violet Hercule. Also G4 has Jerkass Kokoro, Huge Schoolgirl Tsugiko, The Stoic Saku and the polite Karate-chopping Hirano.
- Puella Magi Madoka Magica's four main Puella Magi: Madoka (sweet, idealistic, naive), Sayaka (The most romance-oriented of the group), Kyoko (cynical, ambitious) and Homura (calm, experienced). Mami initially played the role of the wise, experienced one as well, before dying.
- A Channel has Run (The Ditz), Tooru (The Caretaker), Nagi (Only Sane Man) and Yuuko (The one with the model-like body).
- Yuru-Yuri has Akari (The Ditz), Yui (Deadpan Snarker), Kyouko (Wild Card), and Chinatsu, who has the most obvious desires toward another classmate. There's also an ensemble of four student council members, composed of three tsunderes and a Shipper on Deck.
- Black★Rock Shooter anime ended with Mato, Yuu, Kagari and Yomi as this.
- Yama No Susume has this with Hinata (pushy, go-getter) and Aoi (ditzy and naive, the girly-girl to Hinata's tomboy), Kokona (pretty, feminine) and Kaeda (kind, experienced).
- Il Sole penetra le illusioni has Akari (sweet and helpful), Luna (shy and reserved), Seira (cold and cynical), and Ginka (bright and fearless). The show is generally darker than other examples of this trope, but still fits.
- Naruto has the Konoha kunoichi: Sakura Haruno (ambitious and short-tempered, used to be shy), Ino Yamanaka (elegant and confident), Hinata Hyuga (shy and gentle), Tenten (tomboyish and fierce).
- School-Live! has one consisting of the immature Genki Girl Yuki, the Action Girl Kurumi, the distant bookworm Miki, and the Team Mom Yuuri.
- The Discworld fic The Graduation Class covers four mature entrants through their training to become full Assassins. The four women candidates fill these four niches: Johaana Smith-Rhodes is the pretty ditz, Alice Band the mannish rather butch one, Emmanuelle Lapoignard les Deux-Epees is the one who's been around the block a few times (Alice snarkily sums the three up as the virgin, the dyke and the nymphomaniac. What a trio we make.) They are bonded together by the older Team Mum type, Joan Sanderson-Reeves.
- In Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, the Kamen Rider Club Girls consist of Lovable Alpha Bitch Miu Kazashiro, Genki Girl and Otaku Yuki Jojima, Perky Goth Tomoko Nozama and Cool Big Sis Erin Suda. Its side story Month of Sundays has Camera Fiend Mari Yamamoto, The Cheerleader Jun Shigeno, Huge Schoolgirl Rumi Egawa and Yayoi Tokuda bringing up the rear as the Hurting Hero Knowledge Broker.
- In Power Rangers: Shuriken Force, the four rangers fit this. Sweet and shy Kit, sad and cynical Ann, angry and outspoken Lila, girly and cheerful Zara. There's a fifth ranger, but he's The One Guy on the team.
Films — Live-Action
- The four girl coven in The Craft: Sarah, the wise one; Nancy, the Deadpan Snarker Goth who doesn't care what other people think of her; Bonnie, who becomes increasingly image-obsessed and vain; and Rochelle, the sweet, quiet one (and Token Minority) who just wants the Alpha Bitch to stop her racist taunts.

- The four main friends of The Women, an In-Name-Only Chick Flick of a play, who are basically the Sex and the City girls if Samantha was replaced by a Sassy Black Woman Lesbian(?).

- In John Tucker Must Die you have the admirable Kate, sexy cheerleader Heather, Mannish Go-Getter Girl Carrie and ditxy Granola Girl Beth.
- The 50s film So Young So Bad gives us Jane as the innocent, childish Morality Pet. Loretta the wannabe seductress is the pretty one. Jackie the Ambiguously Gay tough girl as the mannish one. Social worker Ruth is the Team Mom.
- Little Women is the Trope Codifier: Meg, the oldest, is the lecturer and mature example-setter who wants a husband and family; Jo is the tomboy who wants a career, fame, and fortune; Beth is the shy, gentle and musical one who wants to stay with her family; Amy is the vain and spoiled but later artistic and flirty young lady who wants to marry someone with money.
- The Chalet School has the Quartet in the early books. Joey is the tomboy and the leader, Simone is the temperamental Clingy Jealous Girl, Frieda is the Team Mom and the best-behaved, and Marie is the pretty one.
- The original four members of The Babysitters Club: Kristy is known for her leadership skills and great ideas, which along with her outgoing nature make her a good softball coach. Mary Anne is good at being organized but she has a sensitive and shy nature. Claudia is a passionate artist and is known for her creativity and fashion sense as well as being boy-crazy. Last of all there is Stacey who is like Claudia but a more sophisticated math genius who is looked up to because she's from New York.
- The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants has Lena, who is a shy, introspective aspiring artist, Bridget, who is daring and courageous with gorgeous blond hair, Carmen, who is the organized one and the "glue" keeping the Sisterhood together, and Tibby, who is known as the rebel and disdainful one.
- Marylin Kaye's Sisters series: Activist Lydia is the Team Mom figure, Cassie is the fashionista, Daphne is the shy and sweet one, Phoebe is the tomboy.

- Raven: Sexy one.
- Crystal: Team Mom, responsible.
- The American Girl books have the Montoya sisters: Ana, the oldest and the Team Mom (almost literally, since their mother is dead and she's already married with two kids); Francisca, the beautiful, fashionable, rebellious one; Clara, the diligent, prudent, preachy one; and Josefina, the youngest and the main character, who's chirpy and cheerful and tries to keep the peace between Francesca and Clara when Ana's not around.
- Cathy Hopkins 'Mates, Dates' series has this with wise Izzy, sweet Lucy, bookish tomboy TJ and flirty Nesta.
- J. Courtney Sullivan's novel Commencement, about a group of Smith students who become friends after sharing a floor their freshmen year, has: Celia, who probably fulfills the role of the "sexy one" as she is a Hard-Drinking Party Girl who Really Gets Around, even though she's not the prettiest of the group; Bree, who is the "sweet naive one" - she starts out as an engaged Southern Belle; Sally, a Neat Freak who serves as the Team Mom; and April, who fits the role of the "tomboy" as a Straw Feminist, Granola Girl and Deadpan Snarker.
- Pretty Little Liars: Emily is the sweet and sporty one, Hanna is glamorous and popular, Aria's the artistic hipster Deadpan Snarker, and Spencer sort of replaces "wise" with "perfectionist". They each represent Aspects of Ali's personality.
- In The Gallagher Girls series, there's Cammie, Liz, Bex, and Macey. The latter three fill out the roles for Beauty, Brains and Brawn (Macey is the beauty, Liz is the brains, and Bex is the brawn), while Cammie is more of a Girl Next Door.
- The Poisonwood Bible has the Price sisters: Rachel, the pretty one and the Rich Bitch who becomes "the sexy one" who Really Gets Around as she grows up; Leah, the wise and motherly one; Adah, the intellectual and Deadpan Snarker; and Ruth May, the sweet, naive baby of the family and The Heart. This book being the kind of book it is, Ruth May, naturally, gets killed off.
- The Babysitters Club-esque Girl Talk books had Sabrina, the ditzy, bubbly everygirl; Katie, the perfect, blonde-haired, blue-eyed athlete; Allison, the quiet, bookish Token Minority; and Randy, the "cool" one, who was from New York and had a skateboard and played the drums and was probably intended to be the Deadpan Snarker.
- The Red Tent features Leah the Team Mom and domestic goddess; Rachel the beauty who compensates for her infertility by becoming a midwife; Zilpah the self-proclaimed priestess/storyteller who Does Not Like Men, and Bilhah the sweet, quiet empath
- The four Cullen women of Twilight are the snarky Bella, pixie-like Alice, elegant Rosalie, and the motherly Esme.
- In A Song of Ice and Fire, Oberyn Martell's four adult daughters are known as the Sand Snakes, and are quite the Badass Family. Obara is a butch Action Girl with a penchant for spears; Nymeria is a beautiful seductress and Knife Nut; Tyene is a Fake Cutie, outwardly a sweet, pious girl in training to be a priestess and secretly a Master Poisoner. Their fourth sister Sarella is not introduced with the others, but there are strong hints that she is Disguised in Drag as brainy, guileful master archer "Alleras the Sphinx" in order to infiltrate the One-Gender School where Maesters are trained.
- Without Sarella, the fourth spot is filled by their cousin Arianne, who is very sexy too, but most fills the role of the narrator/Team Mom.
- The Ultra Violets are composed of team leader Iris, Cheri, Scarlet, and Opaline.
- The Anderssons by Solveig Olsson-Hultgren follows this trope with the four original Andersson sisters. Elin is the most "mannish" one, who used to have a tough job at a paper mill. Mandi is the sweet and naive one, who ends up in a bad marriage. Ida Sofia is The Smart Gal and the Book Worm. Greta is the sexy one, who works within fashion.
- The Golden Girls: Rose is the ditz, Blanche is the slut, Dorothy is the snarker, and Sophia (Dorothy's mother) the Team Mom. Despite age, Sophia is kind of more the snarker and Dorothy is more the level-headed "mother" type.
- Designing Women: Charlene, Suzanne, Mary Jo, & Julia (owns the business they all work for)
- Living Single: Synclaire, Regine, Max, & Khadijah (owns the apartment).
- Sex and the City: Charlotte (Idealistic, slightly naive, The "Park Avenue Pollyanna"), Samantha (slutty, cynical), Miranda (Deadpan-snarky, career-focused, less glamourous than her friends), & Carrie (romantic and the narrator who sees everyone's foibles)
- Switch2012 : Grace as the youngest of the group is ostensibly the identification character. Hannah is the useless Naive one and The Ditz. Stella is the Deadpan Snarker. And Jude Really Gets Around.
- Doctor Who: The first four companions of the new series fit this trope. Rose Tyler is sweet and naive (although she becomes wiser as the series progresses), Martha Jones is smart and practical, Donna Noble is feisty and outspoken, and Amy Pond, who attempts to seduce the Doctor, is the sexy one.
- Desperate Housewives: Susan (ditz), Lynette (snarker), Gabrielle (sexy), and Bree (Team Mom)
- Women's Murder Club
- Privileged: Megan (fulfilling the Team Mom role for both the twins and her own sister), Lily (the sexy one, more towards the Really Gets Around end of the scale), Rose (the well-meaning but not too bright Ditz) and Sage (the cynic and Deadpan Snarker)
- Gossip Girl has Serena (the sexy, freespirited one), Blair (acts as overseer if only to reenforce her image as Queen Bee), Vanessa (the bitter cynic) and Jenny (while not The Ditz in the strictest sense, she is incredibly naive and easily led at times)
- Short-lived (due to being lost in the merger) WB series Related: eldest sister Ginny is the wise one, second-born Ann is the career-focused (least feminine) one, third sister Margie is the flirty one, and Rose is the youngest and most naive.
- Skins has this with each of their female casts:
- Though they fit The Three Faces of Eve better, the three main girls of the first generation of Skins fit this, too: Michelle is the sexy one, Cassie is The Ditz (technically a Ditzy Genius), and Jal combines the Deadpan Snarker and the Team Mom.
- In the second generation: Effy and Katie split the "sexy" one; Pandora is the sweet, naive one; Naomi is the Deadpan Snarker; and Emily is the wise, nurturing one.
- The girls of the third generation too: Mini is the sexy one due to her obsession with being pretty; Grace is the sweet and naive one who believes in stories and fairytales; Liv is the closest to the Deadpan Snarker; and Franky is the wise one.
- In the American version, Michelle is the pretty one, Cadie is The Ditz, Tea is the snarky one, and Daisy is the Team Mom.
- In season seven of Smallville, with the arrival of Kara, we have naive (not so much "behind the scenes") Lana, mannish Lois, sexy Kara and wise Chloe.
- The girls of S Club 7 were portrayed this way on their TV show. Hannah was The Ditz, Jo was the mannish one, Rachel was the glamorous one obsessed with her looks, and Tina was the wise one.
- Although not all four Charmed Ones were on the show at he same time (since Prue died before Paige was introduced), the sisters still fit this trope. Paige was The Ditz, Piper was the Deadpan Snarker, Phoebe was the sexy one, and Prue was the wise Cool Big Sis. Before Paige, Phoebe played a combination of the sexy one and The Ditz. Once Prue passed away, Piper took on her role as the wise Cool Big Sis but still had her Deadpan Snarker traits in tact.
- Beverly Hills 90210: Annie is the sweet naive girl, Silver is the Deadpan Snarker, Adrianna is the one obsessed with glamour and fame, and Naomi serves as the mother figure for the group.
- In the original Beverly Hills, Donna was the sweet naive one, Brenda was the Deadpan Snarker, Kelly was the pretty one, and Andrea was the smart one.
- Pan Am: Laura is the sweet, naive one, Maggie is self-righteous and free-spirited, Colette is sexy and romantic and Kate is the independent, Team Mom type (and Cool Big Sis to Laura).
- Girls on Top (Channel 4's Distaff Counterpart to The Young Ones): Jennifer is The Ditz (bordering on Cloud Cuckoo Lander), Amanda is a Straw Feminist, Candice Really Gets Around, and Shelley is the Wild Card who takes charge ... not in a Team Mom way, but in a "I'm the only one who can remotely afford the rent here, so do as I say or else I'll leave" way.
- Victorious: Tori is the main character, the jack-of-all-trades in terms of talent and the most "normal" of the group. Tori's sister Trina is obsessed with fashion and quite ditzy and girly, Cat is childlike and naive, and Jade is the snarky bad girl of the group.
- The girls on, well, Girls. Marnie is the level-headed, smart one, Jessa is the sexy free spirit, Shoshanna is the naive ditz, and Hannah is the lazy snarker.
- The four students on Bunheads. The show hasn't been on long enough to tell but so far Boo is the sweet one, Sasha is the glamorous Ice Queen, Melanie has elements of being The Ditz, and Ginny is the smart one.
- Played with somewhat on Pretty Little Liars: Hanna definitely fits the glamor-obsessed role; Emily is sort of mannish, insofar as she is an athlete (and a lesbian, but a rather feminine one, although she is definitely not the Deadpan Snarker of the group; Aria is the sweet one, although not naive; Spencer is definitely the Wild Card, and the Deadpan Snarker, and she is generally also the one who holds the group together, although more through sheer determination and iron will than by being the Team Mom.
- The early-to-mid 90's NBC series Sisters. Interestingly, it was the second-youngest sister Georgie who took on the Team Mom role.
- The ladies in waiting on Reign are four friends. Lola is the strongest one, not afraid of death or speaking out, even to a queen. Greer is ambitious for her family's sake even though she does believe in the power of love. Kenna is a real firecracker which makes her unpredictable and totally captivating. Aylee is the most reserved, acting as the voice of caution out of concern for her friends.
- Gilmore Girls uncomfortably fits protagonist Rory into this kind of clique in her high-school years. P Paris is the Deadpan Snarker, Louise the sexy Really Gets Around type, Madeline is The Ditz and Rory is the admirable narrator.
- SCANDAL has Haruna, Tomomi, Mami, and Rina. There is frequent overlap in who takes on which kind of role, these being actual people and not fictional characters, after all (for instance, both Haruna and Mami take turns being Team Mom, Tomomi alternates between being The Ditz and being the sexy one, etc.).
- Nina Simone's Four Women more or less describe a more mature and tragic Four Girl Ensemble. First there is Aunt Sarah who is resilient and, perhaps, motherly, then there is Saffronia who may or may not be the naive girl (all we know is that she's bi racial), next there's "Sweet Thing" whose "hips invite you" and to conclude there is Peaches whose "manner is tough".
- Girl Group Little Mix: Perrie is the sweet naive one, Leigh is the Deadpan Snarker, Jesy is the glamorous one, and Jade is the Mother.
- Kpop group Sistar fit this description. Bora is the sexy one, Soyou is the ditz, Dasom is the Deadpan Snarker and leader Hyorin is the big sister.
- The "classic" lineup of The Bangles had (comparatively mannish) Michael, (team mom) Vicki, (babyfaced and underestimated) Debbie, and (spotlight stealer) Susanna.
- S Club 7 liked to portray the four girls this way. Jo was the tough Lad Ette from Essex. Tina was the bossy, responsible Team Mom. Hannah was the quirky ditz. Rachel was the glamorous beauty who attracted all the boys.
- The 'Four Horsewomen of NXT' fit into this. Bayley was the Kid-Appeal Character who just wanted to be friends with everyone (childish). Charlotte was the jacked, arrogant athlete (mannish). Sasha Banks was the glamorous rhinestone-loving Alpha Bitch (feminine). Becky Lynch meanwhile was the smart, tactical Only Sane Man (intelligent).
- Hamilton has this trope in the Schuyler Sisters Peggy (sweet, from what we see), Angelica (snarky and tough), and Eliza (motherly), with Maria Reynolds (sexy) completing the group.
- In the Heights has bright Stanford student Nina, sexy Vanessa who is constantly being pursued by the boys in the barrio, brassy and outspoken Daniela, and ditzy, lovable Carla.
- The nurses in the Sega brain trainer Brain Assist seem to have this dynamic.
- Final Fantasy X-2 has Yuna (shy and sweet), Rikku (sexy/cute), and Paine (the tough girl), with former party member Lulu (out of the action due to her pregnancy) serving as the voice of wisdom.
- A slight stretch, but Valkyria Chronicles fits as well, with Isara as the sweet one, Alicia as the sexy one (she's the romantic interest in the story), Rosie as the tomboy, (though an argument can be made for the reverse), and Ellet as the wise one (she's recording the exploits of Squad Seven).
- A sidequest in Tales of Symphonia involves a mother asking the party to find her four daughters within the city. The daughters are an obvious Shout-Out to the girls either from Little Women or perhaps Burst Angel - right down to their names and personalities (Jo will be impressed that you could tell she was a girl, regardless of if you really could).
- The female party members arguably fit this trope as well; Raine is the wise motherly one, Colette is the sweet one, Sheena is the sexy one and Presea (despite having hints of Token Mini-Moe) is the tough one.
- Knights of the Old Republic 2 (assuming you mod it to get the Handmaiden with a female player) has Visas (naiive), Mira (cynical/sexy), the Handmaiden (mannish), and the player (leader).
- Kreia could also fill the 'leader' mold, but in an extremely dark, twisted way as she manipulates the entire party to stick together.
- Riviera: The Promised Land and its four Sprite heroines: Fia as Team Mom, Lina as the cute Genki Girl, Cierra as the ditzy but sexy older sister, and Serene as the Tomboy.
- Normally, the three female party members in Dragon Age: Origins comprise The Hecate Sisters ensemble, but with the DLC-only character Shale they become this: Leliana (sweet, naive), Shale (mannish snarker), Morrigan (sexy, cynical), and Wynne (wise, motherly).
- Dragon Age II, assuming female Hawke: Merrill is the naive one, Aveline is mannish in the extreme, Isabela is over-the-top in her sexuality, and Hawke is the Only Sane Woman.
- Still applicable with only female party members: Bethany as the sweet, naive one (at least in Act 1), Aveline as the masculine one, Isabela as the sexual one, and Merrill as the wild card (on account of her blood magic and/or her Cloud Cuckoolander nature).
- Female members of your squad in Mass Effect 2 include Tali (Not really naive, but quite sweet), Jack (very mannish), Miranda (sexy, cynical), and Samara (wise, motherly). The addition of Liara as a Guest-Star Party Member and Kasumi in DLC mods throws off the dynamic a bit.
- Samara doesn't exactly fit the motherly part of that however, her Establishing Character Moment is coldly killing an opponent who was already down, and she threatens to murder the Player Character (among other people) several times over the course of the game. She's seen quite a bit, being an asari, so she's plenty wise. Just not very motherly.
- In the online game Disney City Girl/City Girl Life, the Player Character is a member of one of these, with the other three girls being her college friends who drop by frequently. Veronica aka V is the sexy one, Jenna is the Genki Girl, Olivia is the motherly and mature one, and since the PC is a Country Mouse she plays the role of the naive one.
- Persona 4's female party members are Yukiko (naive and sweet, though arguably more of a Genius Ditz), Chie (a definite Tomboy), Rise (sexy and outgoing) and Naoto (the smartest member and also The Comically Serious).
- The main cast for Lakeview Cabin IV are all female.
- In Persona 5, your female party members consist of four girls: Haru (sweet), Ann (sexy), Makoto (Team Mom), and Futaba (Tank-Top Tomboy hacker). The first three to join are also Blonde, Brunette, Redhead - Ann, Makoto, and Futaba respectively.
- In ClockUp's Team Anise's Eroge! ~Sex and Games Make Sexy Games~, we have Nene (Sweet), Iori (Smart), Momoka (Sexy), and Kisara (Snarky).
- In ClockUp's Euphoria, we have the four remaining female students, not counting the teacher: Rika (Sweet), Rinne (Smart), Kanae (Sexy), and Nemu (Snarky). In the Betty and Veronica Switch during the True Ending route, we also switch those roles between Nemu and Kanae.
- In ClockUp's ESEX Shikorsky: INTERNEET Security Cloud 2017, we have Sharu (Sweet), Misesu (Sexy), Gachako (Snarky), and Amunesu (Smart).
- Homestar Runner's Teen Girl Squad has Cheerleader as the pretty one (she's obsessed with fashion and boys), So-and-So as the smart one (she's a book-smart, self-proclaimed "Overachiever Bandit"), What's Her Face as the tomboy (she's always seen in a t-shirt and baggy jeans), and The Ugly One as the naive one (she's a Cloud Cuckoolander who is quick to follow any of Cheerleader's ridiculous ideas, such as jumping into a lion's mouth for a Secret Santa exchange, for the sake of popularity). The roles are blurred a bit, since What's Her Face tends to have more common sense than So-and-So (or the other girls, for that matter).
- Liv World features a Brainy Blonde, a clumsy tomboy, a fashion-savvy black girl, and a drama queen (is she hispanic or asian?).
- Destiny Fails Us has Idril as the geeky, clumsy one. Atali as the naive, kind one. Alaska as the stalker, obsessive one. And Lily as the pretty, always-on-her-phone one.
- The main cast of M9 Girls!: Any is the quiet one and Team Mom, Pato is the Deadpan Snarker, Clau is the Genki Girl and Karla is the sexy and not so dumb one.
- ''MYth features Aphrodite as the pretty/sexy one, Artemis as the Tomboy one, Persephone as the childish Ingenue and Athena as the smart/Team Mom one.
- Zoo La La features one of these with Angel as the innocent, naive one, Brooklyn as the flirt, Jackie as the tomboy, and Marcie as the smart one.
- The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has Lizzie as the Deadpan Snarker, Jane as the sweet one, Lydia as the sexy one, and Charlotte as the smart one.
- The March Family Letters, a Setting Update of Little Women, has Meg as Team Mom, Jo as Deadpan Snarker, Beth as the Fragile Flower and Amy in the Single Woman Seeks Good Man role.
- The girls of the original Team Kimba in the Whateley Universe: Generator as the sweet and naive (but Crazy Awesome) one, Fey as the sexy one, Phase as the mannish (and how) Deadpan Snarker, and Tennyo as the Cool Big Sis type.
- Josie and the Pussycats has this when including Alexandra. Melody is a Dumb Blonde, Alexandra is rich and glamorous, and Josie and Valerie kind of trade off the smart and tomboyish roles Depending on the Writer.
- Sky Dancers brought us Camille (the creative black girl), Jade (the asian ballerina), Angelica (the tomboy teenie-bopper) and Skyla (the wise platenum-blonde leader of the team).
- Recess gives us the Ashleys. Blonde leader Ashley A., African-American and glamorous Ashley B., athletic Fiery Redhead Ashley Q., and Hispanic and quiet Ashley T.
- My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has the alicorns (as of season 4 and beyond): Luna (naive), Twilight Sparkle (snarky), Cadence (glamorous), Celestia (wildcard, Team Mom, trickster).
- Winx Club gives us Musa, Stella, Flora and Tecna working without Bloom temporarily in season 1, giving us a temporary four-girl ensemble. Stella qualifies as the sexy one and The Ditz, Flora is the Team Mom, Musa is the tomboyish one and Tecna is the smart one.
- The Powerpuff Girls have this in episodes where Princess Morbucks appears. Blossom is the smart one, Bubbles the sweetie, Buttercup the tomboy, and Princess the Alpha Bitch.
- The Crystal Gems of Steven Universe fit despite being three genderless yet fem-presenting extraterrestrials and one boy. Garnet is the strong one, Amethyst is the provocative one, Pearl is the motherly one, and Steven is the Tagalong Kid.
- In Jem, the band Jem And The Holograms consists of the teenager Kimber, the tomboyish and blunt Aja, the Dude Magnet Jem, and the shy Fashion Designer Shana. They later get a Sixth Ranger in Raya. Jem also counts as "dependable" but mostly when she is her alter ego Jerrica, and Kimber is the most prone to love interests.
