* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Benedict is GenreSavvy already, but becomes more so after his escape from the Jack Slater film.

** Also just about weaponized by Jack at one point, showing he was getting almost as DangerouslyGenreSavvy as Benedict, in the chicken scene listed under MoodWhiplash. He realizes full well the dangers of a head-on collision in the real world, but also realizes the goon he's staring down ''doesn't''. He explicitly points out (after the fact) the model vehicle he had was better designed for a head-on collision and he was wearing a seatbelt ''and'' had an airbag, while the bad guy wasn't and didn't. He just underestimated HOW MUCH it was going to hurt.

** As well, on a rather unusual way it happens in Jacks world. While all the Action Movie Tropes are firmly set in place, reality still ensues as good as possible while bending around said tropes. Jacks cool Action Hero behaviour? Only a facade to distract others from his PTSS and lonlieness. His sexy ActionGirl daughter? Yes, she is an ActionGirl and enjoys it, but misses out basicly everything else in life, so it will later come back on her with revenge.
