Playing With: Amazon Chaser
Basic Trope: Guy who finds an Action Girl attractive because of said Action Girl credential
Back to Amazon Chaser
- Straight: Bob is attracted to Maria, the world's greatest martial artist.
- Exaggerated: Bob sees Maria punch someone across a football field and falls in Love at First Sight
- Downplayed: Maria is a martial artist which Bob thinks is kinda cool and provides something for them to talk about.
- Subverted: Bob just likes her for... other things.
- Doubly Subverted: ...that's not to say he doesn't also want her for her fighting skills.
- Every time Maria so much as threatens someone, Bob starts drooling.
- Bob keeps a punchbag in their bedroom for foreplay purposes.
- Maria's incredible strength and power makes Roberta fall in love with her.
- Zig-Zagged: One day, the boys want Maria for her fighting skills. The next, they want her for her Boobs of Steel. Then, she becomes a Lady of War, and they want her for her fighting skills. The next day, they want her for her Murderous Thighs.
- Averted: Maria's martial arts skills have no effect on her attractiveness.
- Lampshaded: "You do realize Maria could grind you into the floor if she wanted to, right?" "I'd enjoy every minute of it!"
- Exploited: Jackie is attracted to Bob who is an Amazon Chaser so she decides to become a better fighter.
- Defied: Bob refuses to go out with Action Girls because he does not want to look wimpy in comparison.
- Discussed: ???
- Conversed: ???
- Eventually Maria has to retire. Bob abandons her now that she no longer has her one attractive quality.
- Maria starts fighting more and more for Bob's attention. Eventually her luck runs out.
- All that fighting takes its toll and eventually even amazon-ness isn't enough to compensate for a face that has been smashed in a thousand times.
- Maria is Happily Married to a Non-Action Guy who would otherwise think that No Guy Wants an Amazon.
- Crippled from a particularly bad fight, Maria switches from physical fighting (for example, martial arts) to mental fighting (for example, chess). She meets Bob at a chess parlor.
- While checking out of the hospital for the nth time she meets someone who is turned on precisely by 'action girls with faces that have been smashed a thousand times'
- Played For Laughs: Tony, Joey, and Jorge, Troperville High's default School Idols, go crazy over Maria, the school's best tennis player, so they start a hilariously violent "civil war" to decide who keeps her, much to Maria's chagrin because she's not interested in men, at all!
