'''Basic Trope''': A female character who prefers to socialize with male characters.
* '''Straight''': Alice has more male friends than female friends. (She may or may not be a {{Tomboy}}.)
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice has ''no'' female friends whatsoever.
** Alice ''worships'' manliness. She [[ManlyMenCanHunt hunts]], [[ARealManIsAKiller fights]], and [[MenDontCry never cries]] and is a BoomerangBigot, StrawMisogynist who not only hangs around only men, but only hangs around men who are as [[FridgeLogic manly]] as her.
** Alice is OneOfTheBoys, and she discovers that each girlfriend she makes is also OneOfTheBoys.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice hangs out with other girls sometimes, but still prefer to go with the guys.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice prefers to be around men because they have (theoretically) less drama than women.
** [[{{Shorttank}} Alice's]] male friends have more in common with her {{Tomboy}} interests than all the [[RealWomenDontWearDresses dress-wearing, pink-loving, makeup-slathered women in the series do]].
** Alice is a FagHag.
* '''Inverted''': Alice DoesNotLikeMen.
* '''Gender Inverted''': Bob has more female friends than male friends. Bob is "One of the Girls".
* '''Subverted''':
** Alice hangs out with boys all the time, but then it's revealed that these boys are all her brothers [[MySisterIsOffLimits making sure no boy gets too friendly with her.]]
** Alice is OneOfTheBoys, and enjoys the [[UnusualEuphemism Horizontal Tango]] with them all.
* '''Double Subverted''': Whenever she gives them the slip, she hangs out with her guy-friends.
* '''Parodied''':
** [[SamusIsAGirl Alice looks and acts so much like one of her male friends that everyone is surprised to learn that she's a girl]].
** Alice will drink, wrestle, and belch like the other guys, and even enjoys (non-male) strip clubs. She's not lesbian, but for all intents ad purposes other than anatomy, she is utterly male.
** Alice spends so much time with guys that [[GirlswithMoustaches she has grown a full beard]]
* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice has more male friends than female...but her ''best'' friend is a girl...who is also OneOfTheBoys.
* '''Averted''':
** Alice's gender never comes up.
** Alice has few male friends, or no male friends.
** [[FriendlessBackground Alice has no friends, period.]]
* '''Enforced''':
** "We need a believable circle of friends for our {{Tomboy}} character."
** "We need a girl in this series, but she shouldn't be a girly-girl because our target audience is little boys".
* '''Lampshaded''': [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg "And these are my bros...and Alice."]]
* '''Invoked''': Alice, tired of "girl drama" starts spending more time with Bob.
* '''Exploited''':
** Bob wants a girlfriend who can handle his, ahem, [[GuysAreSlobs social graces]].
** Alice actually ''doesn't'' like any of the things Bob and his buddies like, but she's trying to cozy up to Bob.
* '''Defied''': Alice decides that she wants bonding with other women who understand her feelings better, and decides to give her girlfriends another chance.
* '''Discussed''': "Don't you think Alice is too much of a tomboy- I mean...she doesn't have any female friends."
* '''Conversed''': "Isn't it weird that almost all the characters are male except [[GenderBlenderName Alex]]?" "[[ViewerGenderConfusion Alex is a girl!?]]"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** The guys may resent Alice encroaching on their male-bonding time; now they have to class it up more than perhaps they want to (or so they think.)
** One of the guys may have feelings for Alice but CannotSpitItOut because they spend all their time rough housing. Alternatively, Alice has feelings for one of them but he sees her as one of his buddies, not as girlfriend material.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Alice accepts her male friends and their conversations at face value, [[ToiletHumor fart jokes]] and all. She also doesn't "cling" to them. In turn, they don't resent her, even enjoying her company...and her advice on how to relate to women better if she has any.
** Everyone knows where they stand with Alice relationship wise.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Alice becomes a "relationship advice" go-to, even though she just wants to watch football. Instead of the guys telling her to hold conversations until the commercial break, she ends up telling them that.
* '''Played For Drama''': [[DoggedNiceGuy Bob]] falls in love with Alice, but she is ObliviousToLove. (Or vice versa.)
