I agree that the group was shoehorned to Five-Man Band, but I think some of the archetypes still fit some of the characters:
- The Heart: [Kagome]'s a Parental Substitute for Shippo, emotional support for Sango, and steers Inuyasha to the path of heroism instead of jerkism.
- The Smart Guy: [Miroku]'s a pretty decent spiritualist and has a good bit of knowledge of the supernatural... and a mind made for Vegas.
- Team Pet: Kirara.
