** The title character sees ''everything'' in terms of [[TheCatalogue TV and anime tropes]], even where they might not otherwise have been. She borders between being a [[WrongGenreSavvy wrong]] and being an accurate GenreSavvy. Since she is an [[spoiler: all-powerful RealityWarper]] with unstoppable willpower, she actually ''makes'' herself become accurate.
** Koizumi himself is a GenreSavvy character too, using it to his advantage to convince Haruhi of certain things. Sometimes it does work, sometimes it backfires at him.
** Kyon also is a pretty GenreSavvy guy, usually expressing it with [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] [[MetaGuy remarks]].

** But then, one character is GenreSavvy enough to freak out when she realizes that she's in a LoveTriangle, and those ''never'' end well... (especially not in Japanese literature!)

** This comes up again (much) later on. In chapter 245 she shows that even a "side-character" can be incredibly important when she [[spoiler: [[Awesome/MahouSenseiNegima keeps Negi from getting blackmailed into slavery by Tosaka]] by [[HeroicSacrifice offering herself]] [[TakeMeInstead in his place.]] ]] Not to mention that [[spoiler: the sole reason that Negi is even able to get back up after Jack Rakan pounded him is because [[HeroicResolve he promised her he would win]] and he's ''[[{{Determinator}} going]]'' to win. That's pretty important.]]
** Also, [[OnlySaneMan Chisame]] often points out, that in this World of Magic, [[ValuesDissonance not everything]] [[GrayAndGrayMorality is shining and clean]], and often worried about Negi's obsession with Nagi, who ends the war, [[spoiler:and effectively ruining [[AristocratsAreEvil some people's]] [[WarForFunAndProfit plans]]]], and often worrying if Negi had [[ParentalAbandonment troubling parents]]. [[spoiler:She's right about all that.]]



** Because the show has {{No Fourth Wall}}, some of the characters are genre savvy. For example, in the English version, there is a point where Tetsuju falls off a hovering space ship and crashes to the floor of a rocky canyon. Sora then assures Seikichi, "Don't worry, he'll be fine. He's the [[PluckyComicRelief comic relief]]!"

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', when the Straw Hats first arrive at the Grand Line, they are greeted by a town who welcomes pirates and partied with them all night. Zoro and Nami were the only two smart enough to fake being drunk to see what the townspeople were really up to. And sure enough, the townspeople were all bounty hunters.
** Jinbe, when requesting to leave Big Mom's crew, is told by her that since she is losing a valuable crew member, anyone wanting to leave her crew must lose something valuable in return. She brings out a roulette with various body parts that he would lose, including arms or a head. Well aware that Big Mom would likely [[ILied double-cross him]] anyways, Jimbe backed off his request to leave and chose to openly rebel instead by [[spoiler: freeing the captive Luffy and Nami]].



** You can tell from early on when he's able to point out the local rich girl is a {{tsundere}} because she has [[{{Tsurime Eyes}} cat eyes]], [[HairColors light hair]], a visible forehead and [[GirlishPigtails twintails.]] He's a little disappointed that she's not short to make it perfect, but then Elsee points out she's also wearing high heels.
** [[spoiler:"A stranger appearing in a time of crisis is 100% SUSPICIOUS!!"]]

to:

* Shiro of ''Anime/{{K}}''. He talks this kind of sense into Kuroh to stop the latter from killing him over the video that seems to show Shiro murdering [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Tatara Totsuka]]. He and Reisi Munakata also both use some of this in their phone negotiations in episode 8.
--> '''Shiro:''' Pleading my innocence from inside of a jail cell would be a waste of time. I've seen enough cop shows to know how that works.\\
'''Reisi:''' And I can't help but feel your two companions would come to bail you out... probably in a non-traditional way.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' {{Prequel}} ''Jack'' there's Lantern. [[spoiler: Really [[SamusIsAGirl school girl Uruka Minami]], she soaks herself in human blood prior to visiting a Salon she knows is run by a Ghoul, in order to trick his sense of smell. She then uses him to get close to Arima and Fura. She also refuses to attack either of them directly until she feels she knows their true strengths, using her position close to them to send them after other ghouls instead to test this.]] Not only are they genre savvy, but it's safe to say that they're also a full-blown ChessMaster.

* ''Anime/DragonballSuper'': During a {{Crossover}} episode with ''Manga/DrSlump'', Vegeta gets into a fight with [[RobotGirl Arale]]. He quickly realizes that he's up against a "gag manga character" and that strength means nothing next to the RuleOfFunny. So he resorts to using gag techniques himself to fight back. He still loses, and at the end of the episode declares he's never fighting a gag character again.
