Five Man Band / Fanfic

Go To

The Five-Man Band is a group of characters whose members fall into archetypes which all complement one another. They are a very specific team with skills that contribute to the group in a unique way. Here are some places where the trope occurs in fanfic.

A Cure for Love: The new Kira taskforce falls into this, though they have yet to get along or get anything done.
