Straight: Alice, a preteen girl, is an excellent fighter.
Exaggerated: Alice singlehanded defeats an army of Mooks.
Downplayed: Alice is good in a fight, but only compared to other little girls. Next to Alicia, a full grown badass, Alice is nothing special.
Justified: Alice is actually a superpowered android.
Inverted: Alice is a grown woman who is a lackluster fighter in an occupation that expects her to be a skilled fighter.
Gender Inverted: Alec, a preteen boy, is an excellent fighter.
Subverted: Alice walks into a room with a BFG. When she fires it, the recoil knocks it into her head and she starts crying.
Double Subverted: But that was just a ploy to get her enemies to let their guard down. She kills them all.
Parodied: A team of trained soldiers raids a compound and run into a normal little girl. One of them cries "It's a little girl!" and they all run screaming.
Zig Zagged: Alice is a little girl but looks like she can be a deadly combatant because she's holding a shotgun and being a little girl doesn't stop a shot gun from being deadly, BUT, the shotgun is too heavy for her and she can't even fire it without being knocked over from the recoil, BUT, Alice is using Obfuscating Stupidity to draw her enemies in and lower their guard for her "true" art of Twin PistolDancing which she uses to decimate her enemies, BUT, sooner or later she runs out of bullets and is once again, just a little girl, BUT Alice is always prepared and has knives, BUT she is a little girl and has serious reach issues, BUT she more than makes up for it in sheer aggression, after all, she is a Bad Ass, BUT...
Averted: Alice's father tries to train her to be a LMB but she just doesn't cut it.
Depite her training, and no matter what her mindset, Alice is still, physically, a little girl, and as such is at a severe disadvantage in combat; most of her enemies are adults, and, thus, inevitably bigger and stronger.
