** The quarians have actually formed their own megacorp, Migrant Fleet Manufacturing, by leveraging their immense technical expertise to essentially build the giant space fleet equivalent of an aftermarket-modification garage. They make massive amounts of money not by building anything, but by taking existing tech and making it ''better''.

** Or, considering that everyone in the fic has proven to be GenreSavvy, Maliwan management is aware of how expendable their security forces will be in a gunfight against the sufficiently badass.



** While assaulting Dantius Towers, Axton comments on how they really should have encountered guards by now. [[GenreSavvy Everybody freezes, expecting trouble]]. [[spoiler: When it doesn't, Garrus gives a sheepish Axton a DopeSlap.]]

* WrongGenreSavvy: [[BountyHunter Lilith]] expects double-crossing from [[TheFederation System Alliance's]] troops when they pay her. From the squad lead by [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Donald Anderson]] and contains guys like [[NiceGuy Kaidan Alenko]] in their ranks. She's disappointed when everything goes without a hitch.

* GenreSavvy: ''Everywhere''.
** Roland and Ashley ''expect'' Gunnar and Higgins to betray them. They just don't know when.
** Lilith deliberately uses a DynamicEntry and UnflinchingWalk to terrify the crap out of the Lance.
** [[spoiler: Handsome Jack's plan seems to bank on the fact that the protagonists will go after the Eridian artifact and steal the McGuffin.]]
** Bailey and C-Sec know better than to try to keep Maya and Brick off the Citadel. They just expedite the process of them getting things done to minimize damage.
** Maya knows she's a FightMagnet and expects to be attacked by Fist's thugs. She just doesn't expect ''when''.
** The Crimson Lance figure out pretty quickly that the best way to stop Lilith is to not fight her but just close the doors in her path.
** Dahlia Dantius ''doesn't'' fall for Axton's trick where he has someone holding him at gunpoint open his [[SchmuckBait Sabre Turret.]]
** Axton's crew has bolted a ramming prow onto the front of their shuttle, because they [[RammingAlwaysWorks have James on their team.]]
** Both Axton's crew and Eclipse recognize when someone is TemptingFate by wondering where the enemy is. Axton's crew immediately recognize the danger they are tempting, while the Eclipse squad's leader immediately cuts off his subordinate's wrath-bringing comment. [[spoiler: But he's a moment too late.]]
** Conrad Verner and Seryna already figures that, at least for Maliwan, [[SuperPrototype the prototype will be much better than released products.]]

** Saren [[OneManArmy immediately]] recognizes what it means when a human survives an attack by large numbers of {{Mooks}}.
