Playing With / Gamer Chick

Basic Trope: A girl who's into (and generally very good at) videogames.
  • Straight: Alice defeats Adrian and Bob in video games.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Alice defeats Adrian and Charlie within two seconds.
    • Alice defeats every single boy that plays against her, including professional gamers who make a living out of games, despite never having played a video game before in her life.
  • Downplayed:
    • Alice and Bob played 100 parties. Alice won 57 parties "only."
    • Alice wins narrowly against Bob.
    • Alice defeats Adrian, Bob and Charlie, but David ultimately defeats her in the end.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted: Bob defeats all the girls he plays against.
  • Subverted:
  • Double Subverted:
    • ....And then Alice pulls a reversal of her own, scoring a crushing victory on him
    • Bob replies to Charlie's accusations: "I know! We both are playing with cheat codes on! We use the same cheat codes, and she still defeats me, no matter what"
  • Parodied:
    • Alice defeats Bob in a video game, while she's reading a book at the same time... Oh! And without looking at the screen, and using her feet to operate the control!
    • Alice and Bob start a video game. Alice leaves the living room to do others things, comes back two minutes before the session ends and soundly defeats Bob.
    • Alice easily defeats Bob despite the fact that he is a lifelong hardcore gamer and this is her first time ever playing a video game. Bob then easily manages to outdo her at something that she is extremely passionate about but he has never tried before.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice defeats Bob in Tropestan RPG, in Tropers Fighting and Tropestan Hack and Slash, but Bob defeats Alice in Trope Gamebreaking Out and Tropestan Canoe-Polo.
  • Averted:
    • Bob and Alice didn't play a video game. They played a board game.
    • Bob plays video games only with Adrian and charlie.
    • Alice plays video games only with Brenda and Carole
  • Enforced: The author herself is a gamer-chick.
  • Lampshaded: "You're quite good at video games! ...For a girl."
  • Invoked: Alice is an Attention Whore who claims to be a big fan of anything that happens to be chic at the moment.
  • Exploited: Bob knows that Alice is unbeatable at video games. He makes a bet with Charlie, knowing that he doesn't have a chance of winning against her.
  • Defied:
    • Alice refuses to play with boys because "It's rubbish to always win".
    • Bob refuses to play with Alice because "It's rubbish to always lose".
    • Bob starts practicing in order to defeat Alice.
    • Bob invites Freddy, a distant cousin, to play against Alice. He's a videogame champion, and widedly regarded as unbeatable. (Bonus points if Alice manages to defeat him, anyway!)
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
