Basic Trope: Ageless Faceless Gender Neutral Culturally Ambiguous Adventure Person.

  • Straight: You can choose the MC's face, name, species and gender.
  • Exaggerated: The Five-Man Band change their jobs with the Job System. The only thing they have of their own are their names, which you chose using the Hello, Insert Name Here mechanic.
  • Justified: It's supposed to make it feel like the main characters are your army/friends/children.
  • Inverted: You can't chose much about the game because of Railroading.
  • Subverted: They're not the real heroes. They're a group the heroes brought together to help them on a dangerous mission.
  • Double Subverted: You can pick the heroes too - you can also make more groups like that.#
  • Parodied:
    • Each one is literally an Artificial Human made by their "adoptive father", each from the DNA of his dead quintuplets. This also explains why they're identical except possibly in gender.
    • Their species change with the jobs, by the same process the Job System works.
  • Zig Zagged: Some groups you can use are preset, some aren't.
  • Averted: You can't pick anything about the heroes.
  • Exploited: The heroes use their Adaptive Ability so they never lose.
