* FiveBadBand: FiveManBand:
** Outlined by the author in chapter 51. Ichigo is TheHero, Tatsuki is TheLancer, Uryu is TheSmartGuy, Chad is TheBigGuy and Orihime is TheChick.
** The reinforcements from soul society have Lelouch as TheHero, [[spoiler: Hisana and Kaien]] are TheLancer, [[spoiler: Kukaku]] and Renji represent TheBigGuy, and Rukia, Susanna and Rangiku are [[TheChick chicks]].
** Orihime suggested that if he turned out to be a nice guy, Shinji could be the SixthRanger. As of chapter 60, he officially becomes this
** In the Different Bonds arc: Ichigo is TheHero, Tatsuki and Chad are both TheLancer, Lelouch is TheSmartGuy, Kendra is TheBigGirl, Susanna is TheChick. Kokuto and [[spoiler: Kasumi]] are both [[SixthRanger Sixth Rangers]], the former is a [[spoiler: SixthRangerTraitor]] and the latter is [[spoiler:not only]] a TokenEvilTeammate [[spoiler:but also the FinalBossPreview]].
** In regards to how things look regarding the initial members of the Black Knights from Naotoís resistance group it seems to look like this in how things are arranged during the Within Zeroís Shadow arc:
*** TheHero: Inoue. [[spoiler:Considering who she really is]].
*** TheLancer: Ohgi and Tamaki. They've had their backstories broken into and are the closest to Inoue.
*** TheSmartGuy: Minami. He often spouts things on a logical wavelength.
*** TheBigGirl[=/=]SixthRanger: Kallen. She's the best pilot and only joined after Naoto's death.
*** TheChick: Kent and Yoshida. They rarely get any lines and donít do much.

* AuthorFilibuster: The author's admiration for Lelouch is well known; he lists him as his favourite animanga character after all. In this, it seems the story goes out of its way to try and make a lot of the cast be like him, with liberal helpings of DarkAndTroubledPast, DespairEventHorizon, and so on to try and explain the change. While not up to Terumi's standards, for instance, Lelouch's belief that the world is full of lies does come become kind of evangelical, particularly with regards to Momo, who laps it up. The characters themselves seem glad that they been through this, a they feel stronger for it, and considering the results [[spoiler:(Momo's Bankai, for instance)]] it's probably well founded, though while obviously intended to sound badass, the way it's said can come across as kind of Narmy, which is apt given it's Lelouch, who is pretty famous among fans for his fabulously narmy facial expressions. This does come at the cost of individuality though, as some of the character's defining features have been lost as a result of the change.
