Basic Trope: Two members of the ensemble have fire and ice powers and are associated with one another.
  • Straight: Fred and Elizabeth are a couple with fire and ice powers, respectively.
  • Exaggerated: Fred is a being of pure fire, and Elizabeth is literally An Ice Person.
  • Downplayed: Fred knows fire magic, and Elizabeth knows ice magic, but they aren't restricted only to those elements and are associated with other cast members.
  • Justified: Fred met Elizabeth at a school for kids with elemental powers, and the two fell in love.
  • Inverted: Everyone but Fred and Elizabeth has fire and ice powers.
  • Subverted: Elizabeth has water powers...
  • Double Subverted: But exchanges them for ice powers to better counteract her husband in case he goes rogue.
  • Parodied: Couples are only allowed to date if they have opposing powers, such as fire and ice.
  • Zig-Zagged: Fred and Elizabeth gain and lose elemental powers, sometimes playing this trope straight and sometimes using other elements.
  • Averted: Fred and Elizabeth have the same power, or no powers at all.
  • Enforced: The writers want Fred and Elizabeth to be associated with each other in more ways than just being a couple.
  • Lampshaded: "Me and Fred fell in love because of our opposite powers. We're soulmates in a sense."
  • Invoked: The couple are together to balance each other's powers out.
  • Exploited: Alice sets Fred up with Elizabeth, as a way to recruit An Ice Person and potentially act as a counter to Fred, who is the most powerful teammate.
  • Defied: Fred and Elizabeth refuse to date, thinking this trope would harm their relationship.
  • Discussed: "Fire wizards and ice wizards dating? That makes perfect sense!"
  • Conversed: "Oh wow, a fire wizard and ice wizard dating. That's not predictable at all."
