Some series start out with a particular type of ensemble , with a certain number of characters and a defined role for each: Then in the second season, a mysterious new character appears, fighting the protagonists and antagonists alike! After many misunderstandings, the new character is revealed to be a good guy and joins the team. Any new character that joins an established ensemble and knocks it out of one of the traditional categories and possibly into another is a Sixth Ranger. There may be more than one per team, with either several joining in succession, or pre-established pairs coming in at once. In a Magical Girl show, it is not uncommon for the Sixth Ranger to be the lead character’s boyfriend. Expect them to be single-handedly defeating enemies that the main team struggled against during their first appearance, falling in line as they become integrated into the group, then finally getting overtaken by the original heroes. In fact, they almost invariably tend to become a magnet for The Worf Effect as soon as the latest new Big Bad shows up.

The Beta Couple is always a secondary pairing and foil to the primary relationship. Often they are friends or confidants of one or both of them, it’s not uncommon for The Hero and his wingman to simultaneously try to hook up with the heroine and her maid of honor. Usually, they serve as a barometer for how well or poorly the main alpha couple is doing and offer possible solutions to any problems.
Hit a Poor Communication Kills? The Beta Couple had that, but worked it out. Losing “the spark” for your Love Interest? The Beta Couple had that, and here’s how they got through it.

For these reasons, things tend to go more smoothly for them, letting them work as catalysts for the alpha couple’s romance.
