- The four element-users all hate each other and are constantly fighting.
- Subverted: Each party member can use multiple elements.
- Double Subverted: The other elements can only provide boosts.
- Parodied: Tom is rejected from the group and swears vengeance because he also uses fire and they needed an ice user.
