Basic Trope: A female character attacks with her breasts.

  • Straight: Robot Girl ALI-C3 has machine guns in her breasts.
  • Exaggerated: ALI-C3 can fire a Macross Missile Massacre from her breasts.
  • Downplayed: ALI-C3 stores a few items in her chest cavity, including a pistol.
  • Justified: As a combat droid, testing found that guys just couldn't keep staring, so why not take advantage of that?
  • Inverted:
    • ALI's breasts turn into shields.

    • Her chest stores medical supplies.
    • She has a gun that fires breast-shaped bullets.
  • Gender Inverted: Bob gains a superpower to shoot lasers from his groin.
  • Subverted: ALI-C3 at first appears to have a cannon in her breasts, but she doesn't.
  • Double Subverted: Because the cannon is in her butt.
  • Parodied: ALI-C3 consults with her designers because she wants to get more powerful firearms installed. They speak as though ALI-C3 is a prospective patient for plastic surgery, even with ALI-C3 using Robo Speak.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: ALI-C3 does not have weapons in her breasts.
  • Enforced: The writer has a thing for robots.
  • Lampshaded: "I'm only going to say this once." (Dramatic Gun Cock) "My Eyes Are Up Here."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ALI-C3 is also designed to be a Sex Bot so as to lure her targets into a false sense of security before killing them.

  • Defied: The designers refuse because they think it's tacky and sexist.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: "I know she's supposed to be an undercover robot assassin, but is it really necessary to put weapons there? Like, wouldn't an Arm Cannon do just as well without the sexist implications?"
  • Implied: A man ogles ALI-C3's bust, but is warned that doing so is dangerous.
  • Deconstructed: ALI-C3 is a cyborg who used to be a human woman named Alice before she was forced to undergo Unwilling Roboticisation. Though she managed to hang on to at least some of her human mind and previous memories, the loss of her physical humanity and her being used as a tool for espionage and assassinations, exemplified by her breasts, which she once liked to flaunt a bit, being transformed into artificial weapons of war contributes to her angst as she can't help but ask herself What Have I Become?.

  • Reconstructed: ALI-C3 eventually works through the Stages of Monster Grief into acceptance, readopting her human name of Alice to assert that she hasn't lost all that made her human, like her previous memories and morals. As far as her weaponized breasts go, she comes around into seeing that she can use them for more than just teasing others and into being secret weapons to fight her enemies in more ways than one.
