Devil's Advocate: I'm removing Power Trio from the list of tropes. A Power Trio isn't just a group of three people; as that page explains, it refers to "A show that thematically centers on the tension between two opposing ideas will manifest that tension through three central characters: one character representing each opposing idea, and a character who must integrate and reconcile the opposition." Neither the original three Iron Chefs on the Japanese original nor the first three on Iron Chef America fulfill this trope.
