'''Hagemaru''': I can do anything, I'm the hero of this series!
* In ''Anime/SwordArtOnline'''s second season, one of the dungeons holds a female in a cage asking to be rescued. All but one of the characters immediately conclude that "[[Main/ObviousTrap It's a Trap]]." [[spoiler: [[Main/SubvertedTrope It turns out to not be a trap.]]]]

* ''InazumaEleven'': The anime tends to portray Megane this way sometimes, although he usually fails at trying to use it to his advantage. On one occasion, he starts with an annoyed rant in the middle of a soccer match, and gets even more annoyed when an opponent tries to steal the ball from him in mid-speech, because [[TalkingIsAFreeAction Talking Is Supposed To Be A Free Action]].
-->'''Megane:''' How dare you attack in the middle of a stirring lecture or a fusion! As a robot otaku, you fail!



* ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'': In addition to frequent MediumAwareness, Team Rocket are particularly genre savvy, especially regarding their own role. They know they are the bad guys, they know they are there to harass the good guys, and they know they suck at it. Why do they go on? Because it's what they do.
* ''SchoolRumble'': Akira is the only one who actually understands the LoveDodecahedron, even using that knowledge to manipulate people. As demonstrated in the BeachEpisode, where a naked Harima winds up grappling a bikini-clad Eri, not only is Akira fully aware that it's NotWhatItLooksLike instead of jumping to the obvious conclusion, she is also capable of explaining in ''great'' detail exactly what happened.



* ''Tsurupika Hagemaru-kun'': Hagemaru suffers from this and MediumAwareness.

'''Hagemaru''': I can do anything, I'm the hero of this series!
* ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln'': The demon generals immediate orders after conquering a country are:
-->'''Hell King Bass:''' Kill all the women and children in case one of the women gives birth to a child and he grows up to be a hero or something.\\
'''Dragon King Drum:''' Ain't that always a bitch?

* ''Manga/{{Bizenghast}}'': Edaniel comes to after being knocked out, and looks for the others, who have managed to get lost. Edaniel claims that he "knew this would happen."
-->Might be meta knowledge, might be real world experience
* ''Manga/BlueDragon'': Zola. In the second episode, after she effortlessly destroys several dozen enemy robots, the remaining ones begin [[CombiningMecha combining]] into [[HumongousMecha a single much larger robot]]. Zola notes that it would be stupid of her to wait for them to finish, and successfully attacks before the TransformationSequence is finished.



* ''[[{{Eyeshield21}} Eyeshield 21]]'':
** Shin leaves the Deimon-Kyoshin game early when Deimon was behind because he knew Eyeshield 21 would use some crazy technique to win it all like he has done so many times before.
** Kid likes to quote, [[TemptingFate "Something bad will happen after something so good"]] and vice versa. It ''always'' happens.
* ''Manga/FairyTail''
** Happy fancies himself very genre savvy about the comedy genre, often predicting the outcome of various gags…only to be proven only ''partially'' correct.
** At one point, Natsu, Happy, Grey and Erza are looking for Lucy and search her house. Grey reaches her bathroom and has an ImagineSpot of him [[AccidentalPervert walking in on her in the bath, complete with getting called a pervert and having something thrown at his face.]] His response? "It was bound to happen sooner or later."
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Roy Mustang, who knows HowToSurviveAWarMovie, loses his cool in a flashback to the Ishvalan War when his buddy Maes gets all excited about a letter from his girlfriend Gracia. Maes survives the war, though he does not [[FatalFamilyPhoto learn from his mistakes]].
* ''{{Genshiken}}'': Most of the characters are major, ''major'' otaku and therefore genre savvy, but share Konata's affliction of being unable to tell exactly what kind of anime they're in. Most of the guys seem to [[VisualNovelShot visualise life as a dating sim]], and beat themselves up about it when they realise it.

* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'':
** The show has NoFourthWall, meaning that this shows up a ''lot.'' Almost everyone is GenreSavvy about the fact that they're in a shounen anime/manga and what that usually entails. Key word: ''usually''.
** The trick is, [[WrongGenreSavvy they don't know they're in a]] ''[[WrongGenreSavvy parody.]]''

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ginjou knows what the expected stereotypes are for {{shounen}} villains and therefore deliberately invokes them to make Ichigo feels as though his life is on the line to [[TrainingFromHell obtain the power-up]] he desperately needs. Afterwards, Ginjou jokes that he'd make a very clichéd villain.

** Ginjou knows what the expected stereotypes are for {{shounen}} villains and therefore deliberately invokes them to make Ichigo feels as though his life is on the line to [[TrainingFromHell obtain the power-up]] he desperately needs.
** Ichigo is well aware the villains regard him as a good candidate for the BreakingSpeech. He's sick to the back teeth of it and isn't beyond telling them so. The anime tends to combine this with NoFourthWall for certain {{filler}} episodes by putting Ichigo into the role of OnlySaneMan for comedy purposes. He can tell what's going to happen based on the genre and sometimes even questions who on earth has been writing the episode.
