Why does it seem like people are just dumping examples into the Video Game section, especially for Final Fantasy VI, and then occasionally justifying it with "Gender Flipped". Should this be cleaned up a little?

Does Brave qualify? I've only seen the advertising posters, which seem to suggest it (with the heroine with a bow and her apparent father with a big-ass sword).

Sort of. Merida prefers shooting while the various guys present all seem to prefer smashing. However, Merida is also capable of fencing with her father, while at least some of the guys are shown to be archery-proficient to some degree.

If one girl in my story fights long-range, but the other close range, and out of the three remaining boys, one is melee, one is a Fragile Speedster, and one is a Combat Pragmatist, is it a particular play on this trope? —

EDIT: Yes, it would be an aversion.
