Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Doesn't get any more "Power" than this.

Three is a common number in ensembles.

The most common pattern for this is for two members of the group to be each other's Foils, frequently coming into conflict with each other, with the third member of the group acting as the mediator, keeping the team together and balancing their respective personalities.

Power Trios can also be embedded in larger ensembles. Three Plus Two is a Power Trio within a Five-Man Band. The Five Temperament version of the Four-Temperament Ensemble sometimes manifests as two Power Trios with the same central member. A Six-Student Clique is often broken into two Power Trios and a Magnificent Seven Samurai often has one, and sometimes two, Power Trios of its own.

Below, we list the many variations of a Power Trio. Freudian Trio is one of the more frequently found versions and is often the basis of the other trios. They can overlap.
