'''Basic Trope''': In traditional sense, a girl who tends a (Shinto) shrine and appeases the deities it houses.
* '''Straight''': Himiko, the girl who tends Asamiya, the local Shinto shrine in the neighborhood.
* '''Exaggerated''': The Asamiya is a head shrine dedicated to Amaterasu-ookami, it has thousands of believers, and Himiko is regarded as the head miko and as a living goddess.
* '''Downplayed''': The Asamiya is a ''hokora''[[note]]miniature Shinto shrine either found on the precincts of a larger shrine and dedicated to folk kami, or on a street side[[/note]] dedicated to Kannon, and Himiko is simply one of the caretakers of the shrine.
** Alternately, the Asamiya is a minor shrine in a style of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumiyoshi-zukuri Sumiyoshi-zukuri]], with Himiko being the "part-time miko" caretaker.
* '''Justified''': Himiko's family has been tending the Asamiya since the antiquity.
* '''Inverted''':
** Himiko is a kannushi.
** Himiko is a nun.
* '''Subverted''':
** Himiko isn't really a Miko, she's just a CosplayOtakuGirl.
** Alternatively, "Himiko" turns out to be [[DudeLooksLikeALady a very effeminate guy...]]
* '''Double Subverted''':
** But when she's at home, she's actually a Miko.
** ... who then changes his gender and keeps tending the shrine.
* '''Parodied''': Himiko is a {{Dojikko}} and she didn't pay attention to her training, so instead of performing a ritual properly, she just does go like "Tori-kami, Tori-kami!" in a begging way.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Himiko isn't really a Miko, she's just a CosplayOtakuGirl. But when she's at home, she's actually a Miko. Except that the "shrine" is a tourist attraction. But then, she is often NotHerself...
* '''Averted''': Despite having ShrinesAndTemples, not a single Miko is in sight. *sigh*
* '''Enforced''': The work panders to Otaku who has Miko fetish.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Magical ShrineMaiden Himiko! With the power of the gods, I shall cleanse thy impurities!"
* '''Invoked''': Bob, visiting a Shinto shrine to find authentic ShrineMaiden "like in those {{Moe}} animes".
* '''Exploited''': Himiko has a boring life, and she decides to be a miko and gets training, and she becomes a miko.
* '''Defied''': The chief priest of Asamiya forbids women from tending the shrine.
* '''Discussed''':
--> Bob: Hey, Himiko. How's your job of being a ''miko''?
-->Himiko: Oh, it's great. I get money from selling ''onuri''s.
-->Bob: Interesting.

* '''Deconstructed''': Himiko doesn't like being a ShrineMaiden. It's outdated, and most people see her as a weird oracle of some sort.
* '''Reconstructed''': The gods are [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly highly responsive to prayers]], so Himiko keeps the job.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Himiko's friend, Ruri, a CosplayOtakuGirl, tries being a Miko for a week.
* '''Unintentional Troping''': The clash between the old and the new is depicted when Himiko walk the streets of Tokyo in Miko attire.
