'''Kitty''': It doesn't feel like nothing, Petey. I can't raise Scott's team either. I even pinged Cable in Providence, and guess what? More deafening silence.\\

* In ''Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool'', the titular character is familiar with comicbook tropes because she grew up reading them in the "real" world. So, when she somehow ends up in the Marvel universe she already knows you have to wear a costume to avoid getting killed like a random extra and she's perfectly aware of her own PlotArmor. This doesn't stop Gwen from underestimating the dangerous situations she finds herself in and forgetting that tropes can be {{deconstruc|tion}}ted.

* In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Morpheus is possibly one of the most genre savvy entities in the whole universe. As the Prince of Stories, he knows that life literally imitates art (and vice versa) and is more than capable of controlling it. While teaming up with John Constantine to enter a house haunted by renegade dreams, Constantine shows some genre savviness himself, recalling what happens to people in horror movies when they [[AloneWithThePsycho split up]]. He asks Morpheus for reassurance that they'll stick together.

* In the ''ComicBook/MarvelComics2'' universe, GenreSavvy is yet another [[SuperpowerfulGenetics skill Peter passes on]] to his daughter [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl May]]. Much of the witty banter that goes down during her fights consist of [[PlayingWithATrope describing]] the comic book tropes they're supposed to be following.
* In an issue of ''ComicBook/MarvelAdventures'', at the end of a LetsYouAndHimFight Spidey says, "It was a textbook superhero misunderstanding battle. Happens all the time! Luckily, this is the part where we make up for it by working together to stop her."
** This actually happens a lot. Nocturne in ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'' refers to that as an "unwritten rule of superhero team ups" and Robbie from ''Comicbook/{{Nova}}'' is disappointed that Darkhawk and his brother didn't do this.
** PlayedForDrama when Comicbook/RedHulk goes up against Ikaris of the Eternals. The prevalence of LetsYouAndHimFight is a factor in confirming Ikaris' worst opinions of the Marvel Universe's heroes.
* ''ComicBook/ZombiesCalling'' by Faith Erin Hicks is built around the main character being savvy to the "rules" of zombie movies.

** Also, referring to his first meeting with the Comedian (where they fought before realizing they were on the same team), Adrian comments on how common a misunderstanding this is in their chosen profession. This is a reference particularly to Marvel heroes, who will ALWAYS battle EACH OTHER upon first meeting.

* In the 1991 ''Marvel Year In Review'', Greg Salinger (the second ComicBook/{{Foolkiller}}) is interviewed about the activities of his successor, Kurt Gerhardt. Salinger opens by stating that Gerhardt's father had been killed by muggers. When the interviewer inquires as to whether this was the motive for Gerhardt's vigilante actions, Salinger responds by saying "Don't be so cliché".
* Creator/DonRosa: When the Ducks are pursued by a hungry Spinosaurus in ''Escape From Forbidden Valley'', Uncle Scrooge suggests taking a shortcut over a cliff across an old wooden log. His nephews immediately dismiss the idea and snark that the last movie their uncle has watched was probably at a 1904 science expo.

* Everett Ross from ''Comicbook/BlackPanther''. When he first sees the giant, high-tech tower Killmonger had constructed, he notes that it's probably going to explode at some point. His reasoning? These things ''always'' seem to explode whenever superheroes or supervillains are involved.
