Playing With: An Ice Person
Basic Trope: A character has ice- and/or snow-based powers.
  • Straight: Magical Girl Warrior Yuki has the innate ability to freeze objects, whether through touch, frost breath, or a freeze beam. However, she is susceptible to fire-based attacks.
  • Exaggerated: Yuki can freeze over the sun without even breaking a sweat.
  • Downplayed: Yuki can cool down hot matter to about room temperature.
  • Justified: Yuki was granted magical powers, or she is of a particular species (e.g. alien, mutant, yuki-onna) for whom such abilities are natural.
  • Inverted: Kaji can set objects on fire at will.
  • Subverted: Yuki says she's going to freeze the food, but places it in the freezer.
  • Double Subverted: Which is powered by her own ice powers.
  • Parodied: Yuki and her Love Interest are making out, and his tongue gets stuck to her.
  • Zig Zagged: Yuki freezes matter by absorbing heat - which she can then project
  • Averted: Nobody has snow or ice powers whatsoever.
  • Enforced: "We've got someone with fire and someone with lightning, so lets give Yuki ice."
  • Lampshaded: "That's pretty cool, but can you chill out on all the puns?"
  • Invoked: Yuki injects herself with a Super Serum that gives her the ability to manipulate ice.
  • Exploited:
    • The bad guys arm themselves with flamethrowers and Molotov cocktails because they know about Yuki.
    • A bad guy makes a big show of living in a snowy palace surrounded by ice and polar bears, and then breaks out the water powers when the fire-based heroes show up.
  • Defied: Kaji goes around hunting and killing anyone with ice abilities.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: "How is it that whenever Yuki freezes someone, they don't suffer from frostbite or any other adverse effects?"
  • Deconstructed: Anything that Yuki touches freezes, isolating her from her loved ones.
  • Reconstructed: She finds a way to control her powers, such as wearing specialized gloves, to counteract the freezing touch.
