Playing With: Meeknessis Weakness
Basic Trope: Someone suffering through his/her selflessness.
  • Straight: Alice is a selfless girl who care for others. She isn't treated nicely in return.
  • Exaggerated: ???
  • Downplayed: Most of the time Alice puts others first and doesn't do what she wants in order to help others but she spends the rest of the time on herself.
  • Justified:
    • Alice believes that selflessness is rewarding despite never getting as much as a 'thank you'.
    • Alternatively, Alice is a Good Samaritan who could care less if the recipient appreciates her kindness or not.
  • Inverted:
    • Everyone treats Alice nicely, but she treats them badly in return.
    • Alice is a selfish girl who care for only herself. She isn't treated nicely in return.

  • Subverted:

    • One of them did treat Alice nicely in return.
  • Double Subverted:
    • ...Which are making her loved ones happy.
    • But it was all a trick to back stab her later.
  • Parodied: Alice cared for an Obviously Evil Alpha Bitch.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Alice is a selfless girl who care for others. She was treated the same in return had she not care of others anyway.
  • Enforced: The writer wants to point out that Life Isn't Fair and kindness does not get rewarded as the media usually portray.
  • Lampshaded: "Get real, Alice. No one respects a doormat who is kind and sweet and never strikes back. No one."
  • Invoked: Alice was raised by her family to be that kind of Proper Lady.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Everytime someone mistreats Alice, her boyfriend Bob will arrive and scar him/her into not bullying Alice again.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
