* 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 {{deconstruct|ion}}ed.
* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'':
** Wa'at Alahf, Iznogoud's henchman, has long since realised that Iznogoud will be HoistByHisOwnPetard, and is more likely to prepare for the plans' inevitable failures than he is to work toward their success.
*** "Golden Handshake" has him going on a quest for an unknown item as soon as Iznogoud devises a plan for turning the Caliph into a statue with the golden touch of King Midas' descendant, Ghoudas Gho'ld; the item is revealed at the end to be a commemorative plaque in Iznogoud's memory that Wa'at applies under the statue his master has become.
*** His genre savviness is subverted in "Tried and Tse-tsed" (and its animated version, "Watch Out, There's a Fly About!") when he is convinced Iznogoud will be stung by the tsetse fly he plans to use on the Caliph and starts making his bed in preparation (to Iznogoud's fury), only for the fly to be sedated by the Caliph's herbal tea and adopted by the genial sovereign as a pet, reducing Iznogoud to a gibbering wreck and forcing Wa'at Alahf to have him committed.
** Even Iznogoud starts to notice the pattern in which he falls into the traps he has set for the Caliph. In "The Send-away Bed", after the Caliph comes down with insomnia and so is uninterested in a bed that, unbeknownst to him, sends all who lie on it to another dimension, Iznogoud turns to the reader and says he's sure they expect him to lie on the bed when he gets tired, but no such luck: he returned it to the seller (who had another interested buyer for the bed) and is spending the night out of town just to be sure. He checks into a hotel and lies down on the bed in his room, not noticing that it's... well, you can probably guess the rest.

* At the end of ''ComicBook/NewAvengers2015'', Sunspot has declared that A.I.M. in its original configuration has been shut down to get ready for his more heroic incarnation. When Cannonball asks him if he's sure, Sunspot amends it to say that "99%" has been shut down -- there's always someone out there who didn't get the memo.
