'''Basic Trope''': This girl is too good for that {{loser|Protagonist}} guy, knows it, and acts accordingly.
* '''Straight''': Alice is [[TeenGenius brilliant]], [[DeadpanSnarker witty]], and beautiful... while [[LoserProtagonist Bob]] is... not. She works on getting him to shape up and isn't afraid to berate and belittle him to keep him motivated.
* '''Exaggerated''': [[MarySue Alice is the most beautiful, brilliant, amazing woman in the world.]] Bob is an utterly worthless slob. [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim For some reason, she sees potential in him]] and will stop at nothing to ensure it comes out.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice and Bob are close in ability, but Alice continues pushing him to do better and gives him snark when he rests on his laurels.
* '''Justified''': Bob is BrilliantButLazy, [[SheCleansUpNicely cleans up nicely]], or has [[HiddenDepths other good qualities beneath his loserly surface]] that Alice is trying to bring out.
* '''Inverted''':
** ExtremeDoormat
** ManicPixieDreamGirl
* '''Subverted''': Another character comments on their crazy relationship, only for Alice to insist "He's not my boyfriend."
* '''Double Subverted''':
** They hook up in the end anyway.
** He's her project/apprentice/slave thingy.
* '''Parodied''': Alice uses every perceived slight to bring Bob down a notch, despite the fact that the two of them are actually fairly equal, all things considered. Bob decides it's easier to just go with it.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice finally gets Bob to be more motivated and he becomes more talented than her. Bob then turns into a BrokenAce, [[StatusQuoIsGod so he goes back to being a slacker]] because he's much happier that way.
* '''Averted''': Bob and Alice are equals who don't snark.
* '''Enforced''':
** The writer thinks poorly of MagicalGirlfriend and writes something they think is more believable.
** The writer is in such a relationship and doesn't think its half bad.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Some days, I wonder why I even bother with him..."
* '''Invoked''': ???
* '''Exploited''': Bob instantly recognises that Alice is the kind of girl who likes [[ICanChangeMyBeloved taking Bad Boys and "improving" them]], so he plays up to it.
* '''Defied''':
** "You know what, Bob? You're a dilweed, and I never want to see you again."
** "Alice, I'm dumping you. I've heard {{Emo Teen}}s that whine less than you."
* '''Discussed''': "She's my princess, and boy does she act like one..."
* '''Conversed''': "Why does Alice put up with Bob? Or him with her? ThePowerOfLove?"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Alice sticks with Bob to boost her own ego, knowing that she's far better than him and can hold that over his head. Bob eventually cracks under the pressure of trying to keep her favor, and they break up (much to her shock; how ''DARE'' something like ''him'' break up with ''HER''?!)
** Alice is downright abusive to Bob, who's too shy to stand up to her.
* '''Reconstructed''': Alice honestly cares for Bob despite his flaws, and helps him become a better person, while Bob gets her to confront ''her'' flaws and deal with them. Even if [[DidNotGetTheGirl romance never manages to flourish between them]], they'll eventually learn to [[PlatonicLifePartners become great friends]].
* '''Played For Drama''': Alice is the one good thing Bob has going for him, and she's fully aware of it, so she constantly derides and insults him but in doing so, she's unintentionally wearing away the ''good'' parts of their relationship. All the while, JerkJock Charles is watching and plotting to steal her away -- not out of love, but 'cause she's hot and it would cause Bob even more pain.
