Five-Man Band refers to a group with consisting members whose skill puts them into these categories that best describe their attributes and the skills they have that compliment one another in their own way.

The Hero - The main character of their story. The Hero is often the person who the plot focuses on. The hero can be a male or female depending on the writer. The Hero's personality can range from being an all-loving hero or an Anti-Hero depending on the plot. The Hero in the Story will sometimes be the leader, who is the one who leads the group and make the important decisions. The Hero's motivations can vary from wanting to save the world or trying to seek vengeance against the one person or group who was responsible for their tragedies and misfortune. The Hero in all fictions represent the core beliefs most people cherish and is the icon of what it means to be a true hero by following their morals unflinchingly. However the Hero can sometimes represent what they or other heroes despise if they allow themselves to give in to hatred, vengeance, and despair. The Hero at times can also be the most idealistic person in the group as they are willing to forgive and accept others even their enemies for their flaws. Additionally, the Hero can often see the good in people including their enemies and will go to great lengths to make them see it in them. Most of the times, the Hero will go against the will of others in order to do the right thing even if their actions are against the law. The Hero will also be the one to never give up and increases the morale by not giving into despair and to keep on fighting until the very end. Sometimes either the other members of the group can be also The Hero, if the plot focuses on them more.

The Leader - The one who leads is usually the Hero but not always. The Leader who is not a hero will often be the Big Good of the story itself. The leader will often be considered more reasonable for the actions of their subordinates and will decide what action will be most beneficial for the world or for the organization they lead as a whole. The Leader will often but not always be the most respectful because of how they act in situations and how they treat their subordinates. The Leader can sometimes act as a positive role model for his/her allies for being a good leader.

The Lancer - The Second in Command after the Hero. The Lancer in the group after the Hero will be the most responsible and the one to take command once the Hero is not available. The Lancer at times depending on the story can be strongest member of the group after the Hero. The Lancer in all of fiction will be the Hero's opposite in terms of personality and powers. For example, if the Hero possesses Fire powers, the Lancer will have ice powers. Another example would be if the Hero is more idealistic, then the Lancer will be the most realistic or if the Hero is more hot-blooded and anti-social, then he or she would be more cautious and more sociable. Sometimes The Lancer can be or was the Rival to the Hero, who decided to join the group for various reasons. Despite the differences, The Lancer is often considered the closest companion to the Hero because of he or she is the best friend of the main character or the one who supports The Hero's decision the most.

The Smart Guy - The Brains of the group. The Smart guy will act as the most intellectual member of their group. He or She in this category will often be the most resourceful when their comrades are in the most desperate situation and will act on how to get out of a specific situation. The Smart Guy would be the person to pick up on something that was amiss in any event that occurs. The Smart Guy can range from being a great tactician who uses their head in battle or be a great inventor, who invents many technology equipment that can be beneficial to the heroes. They will often be the ones who are able to discern the weakness of their enemies and use it to their advantage. At times, when the Smart Guy is around they are very reliable to explain things to their comrades so they too can understand the topic themselves.

The Big Guy - The Brawns of the group. The Big Guy is considered to be the physically strongest member and the largest of their team. The Big Guy has been known to be unflinchingly loyal to his or her teammates in any situation, they can be counted on. The Big Guy can also be the most combat effective in battle and at times be a one-man army. The personalities of this group member can vary, they can sometimes be gentle giants and will be threatening when provoked or aggressive bruisers who are very rough-edged but will show their soft side at times.

The Chick - The Peacekeeper of the Group who often represents the moral compass to the group during their adventures. Depending on the writers, the Chick can also be the main love interest to the Hero. The Chick in the story is usually female but not always. This member will often be the one who breaks up a conflict between the group members in difficult times and encourage them to be loyal and trustworthy to one another. The Chick is the one who does their best to keep their comrades from giving into negative feelings and also the one to slap some sense into them if they start or is losing sight of who they are.

The Sixth Ranger - The Latest Member of the group. Usually this member of the group would be the last member to join the group and is always a new member who appears late into the story. The Sixth Ranger can sometimes be a previous and recurring enemy that has fought with the heroes but has decided to join the heroes. The Sixth Ranger for example can sometimes be considered the atoner for the group as they were enemies or pawns to an even greater evil and decides to redeem themselves for what he/she did. On the other hand, this member can be a relative to the Hero but will play an important role later in the series once that role has been discovered or can be an on/off character that occasionally sides with the good guys. Most often the Sixth Ranger will be a prominent character in their respective series, that will inevitably become a new and vital member to the group when that character will join them once they possess traits that are very respectable.

The Tag-Along Kid - The youngest member of the group and/or sometimes the most inexperienced. This member can be a the Hero's Sibling or someone else's sibling. Often times, the tag-along kid would be the most immature one of the group which leads to comical moments. At times of great stress, the youngest member will probably be one of the other members in the Five-man Band while still be this type of hero or grow up into becoming one as character development happens throughout the series. While being the youngest of them all, this character will inevitably be a great asset as his or her own potential will be unlocked when there will be great peril and be the one who would save the day when the others could not do it.

The Team Pet - The Animal member of the group. This group member serves as companion to the group and at times be amongst the closest of the group especially to the Hero early on the story. In many moments, this member comes through for the team on tight situations such when a its owner is struggling or use it's natural abilities to help the heroes with important matters like solving a mystery or finding something amiss. The Team pet will often be one of the most loyal companions because it's owner(s) cared for it greatly, has been with the character since childhood, or was raised by that character.
