- Not to be confused with aroacegender
Aroace agender (also known as AAA, Aroaceage,Triple A, AAA-spec, or A³) is an identity that combines "aro" (for aromantic spectrum), "ace" (for asexual spectrum), and "age(nder)" (for agender spectrum). Aroace agender can be used for any individual who identifies with all three spectrums. For example, an aromantic demisexual libragender individuals, an greyromantic asexual agenderflux individuals, and a demiromantic lithosexual agender might all be described as aroace agender individuals.
Some aroaceage individuals may experience other forms of attraction that are neither romantic nor sexual, such as queerplatonic attraction or alterous attraction. If they feel that this attraction is significant enough to warrant a place alongside their aroace orientation, they may identify as oriented aroace or angled aroace.
In early December 2018 the sunset aroace flag was posted by Tumblr user Aroesflags. This five striped design consists of an orange stripe at the top, followed by a yellow stripe, a white stripe, a blue stripe, then an indigo stripe. Most aroace agender flags are either based on this sunset design or from combined elements of the traditionally colored aromantic, asexual and agender flags.
The green flash flag is one of the most popular sunset designs, incorporating both aroace and agender elements intuitively. It is named after the rare green flash atmospheric phenomenon that can occur at sunset. The spectral flag seamlessly blends these sunset color elements into a natural spectrum, while FormicaRufa's design retains the black margins of the original agender flag.
For traditionally colored designs Aro-ace-agender-space's and nblw-love's flags follow the agender format using established ace, aro and agender colors, while llonnoll's Greenscale flag is reminiscent of the asexual flag with a green value shift simultaneously integrating aromantic and agender elements. Thapenguino's flag divides individual aromantic, asexual and agender color elements with black stripes.

Aroace Agender individuals are commonly known as "AAA batteries". Extending from this, aroaces, aro agender individuals, and ace agender individuals are referred to as "AA batteries". Individuals who are asexual aromantic agender and aplatonic have been called "AAAA batteries". This meme can be extended further with additional "A" identities.
