Basic Trope: An often wealthy female character who is admired and respected by everyone
  • Straight: Alice is surrounded by admirers who fawn over her constantly. She is given preferential treatment wherever she goes and commands a position of influence if not actual authority.
  • Exaggerated: Alice is treated as the queen of the world and people fall to their faces as she walks past.
  • Downplayed: Alice is surrounded by admirers whenever she goes to parties within her own social circles, but she loses this influence outside of such events as the general public does not know of her.
  • Justified: Alice comes from a very wealthy family and is a charming, beautiful woman in her own right.
  • Inverted: Alice is a social outcast whom people can barely stand to be around.
  • Subverted: Alice comes from a very wealthy and important family, but everyone looks down on her as an Upper-Class Twit and no one takes her seriously...
  • Double Subverted: ...when she isn't around, at least. To her face everyone else bows and fawns as apporiate because her daddy would be mad otherwise.
  • Parodied: Bob and Charlie go to increasingly ridiculous lengths to show their respect to Alice.
  • Zig Zagged: Bob practically worships Alice, but Charlie can't stand her, and Dave is ambivalent.
  • Averted: Alice is not particularly rich and admired.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "I'm so lucky people love me for me, even though I do have money."
  • Invoked: Alice's parents promote a sweet and ladylike public image in an attempt to reach a 100% Adoration Rating.
  • Exploited: Alice's father names her head of his company, knowing she will inspire confidence in the stockholders.
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: "Do you ever notice how no matter where Alice goes, she's surrounded by admirers and everyone always wants to do what she says?"
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: Alice is confused by her unearned admiration. When others praise her for things she has no control over, she can no longer tell when she's receiving justified praise and begins to develop deep insecurities.
  • Reconstructed: Alice learns not to surround herself with yes men, and also makes good use of her natural leadership abilities.
