: An attack fuelled by the combined inner power of a group of people.
- Straight: Bob blasts Emperor Evulz with the Tropebuster, and empowers it with the energies of the rest of the Five-Man Band, as well as a number of civilians present.
- Exaggerated: Bob uses the combined energies of everybody on the planet.
- Downplayed: Only The Lancer adds his power to Bob's attack, and that's his main combat ability.
- Justified: The Five-Man Band are robots, and Bob's using a Wave Motion Gun powered by Tim Taylor Technology, so he can amp up the power by using his fellow robots' energy.
- Inverted: Bob is Unskilled, but Strong, so his other four teammates use their best attacks on Evulz, while Bob adds his energy to their attacks.
- Subverted: Bob refuses to use the Tropebuster, because Emperor Evulz might target the civilians to weaken it.
- Double Subverted:
- After a "World of Cardboard" Speech, Bob realizes the risk is worth it to defeat Evulz, who will do far more indirect harm if he is not stopped, and uses the Tropebuster.
- Evulz attacks the civilians anyway, so Bob shields them with a combined energy shield, before going on the attack with the combined energy and the Tropebuster.
- Parodied: Bob is getting curb stomped by Emperor Evulz. A fly lands on his finger, and he drains its life energy into the Tropebuster and blasts Evulz across the globe.
- Zig Zagged: ???
- Averted: Bob doesn't need any help to defeat Evulz. Or the Five-Man Band all use their strongest attacks on Evulz instead of adding their power to Bob's attack.
- Enforced: "Emperor Evulz is strong enough to defeat armies alone. How can Bob beat him? We want him to go down in a huge Beam-O-War, not a cheap assassination, but where can Bob get that kind of power from?"
- Lampshaded: ???
- Invoked: ???
- Exploited: Emperor Evulz uses some sort of device to capture the power of the Tropebuster for his own nefarious ends, gaining an otherwise impossible amount of pure energy.
- Defied: Emperor Evulz targets Bob's helpers before he uses the attack.
- Discussed: ???
- Conversed: "Let me guess. The whole planet is going to team up to give Bob enough power to block the planet-destroying Wave Motion Gun?"
- Deconstructed: Tropebuster was Cast From Hitpoints. A lot of people die to power it.
- Reconstructed: They were unconscious, and reaffirm after they wake up that had they really died, their deaths would have been worth it to defeat Evulz anyway.
- Played For Laughs: Bob uses a Combined Energy Attack for Mundane Utility. Everybody in the nearest few blocks collapses. Hilarity Ensues when they wake up pissed.
- Played For Drama: Bob uses Combined Energy Attacks to beat everybody, and becomes a Jerk Ass about it, seeing his teammates as mere batteries for his technique. The Five-Man Band get sick of it, and ditch him next battle. His attack pops and he becomes the victim of a Curb-Stomp Battle. The Band pull Big Damn Heroes, but refuse to let him use their power for the Tropebuster until he apologises.
