Imbox style.png This page needs some cleaning up to be presentable.

The sections about identifed media need to be moved to their own subpages. The remaining sections need to be sorted alphabetically.

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 new media, wrestling, and other media.

Note: ADD REAL LIFE EXAMPLES AT YOUR OWN RISK. Avoid using political and religious examples (because calling real life leaders villains is a bad idea) and don't start an Edit War.

The Chick(s) Kaikaina "Sister" Grif and Frank "Doc" Dufresne

Red Team:

Team Pet The Warthog
The Surviving team members at the end of Revelation:
The Hero Sarge
The Lancer Tucker
The Big Guy Caboose
The Smart Guy Simmons
The Chick Grif
The Sixth Ranger Wash
For the majority of the series:
Supporting Leader / The Hero Church (the central protagonist and the de facto leader of both teams when faced with a common enemy, who eventually grows enough to succeed in pulling dozens of genuinely heroic stunts towards the conclusion)
The Hero Sarge (becomes the default example by the end of the series)
The Lancer(s) Tucker (by default, especially to Church; by far the most Badass non-Freelancer within this show, on top of being one of the most competent ones amongst both teams) and Grif (to Sarge; competent as he can prove himself to be, he's either too lazy to act and/or too busy getting his ass handed to him to help, hence why he gets regulated to The Chick by the end of it)
The Big Guy(s) Caboose (dumbass recruit that follows any order given to him and a particularly badass fighter when pissed), Lopez (a robot that's good with weapons) and Sarge (until Character Development kicks in)
The Smart Guy(s) Lopez (a snarky robot that's good with electronics) and Simmons (the most rational of the Reds, who possesses astute knowledge of computer technology and physics, but is arrogant about it)
The Chick(s) Doc (the pacifist medic that helps anyone who asks for it), Donut (the highly flamboyant dude in pink armor) and Sister (the Anything That Moves type). Grif gets regulated to this by the end of Revelation, by virtue of being the lazy Butt Monkey
Sixth Ranger(s) Tex (a secondary Lancer to Church, even considering her frequent betrayals and their more confrontational 'disagreements') and Wash (is arguably The Hero to Church's Supporting Leader; inversely, he's a Supporting Leader to Church's The Hero)
