* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander]] is the only one in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11181910/53/Yet-Again-Still-Even-More-Fragments The Power Of]]'' to find it highly suspicious that a new girl shows up with an obviously magical necklace and unusual manners in the middle of the semester. Since said girl is Anyanka, Patron Saint of Scorned Women, he's proven right by the end of the day. Notably, the reason he's suspicious is the same reason Willow isn't: the same thing happens with the VillainOfTheWeek in anime all the time.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4074871/19/Seen-and-Unseen Seen and Unseen]]'' Ginny and Mallory go to the Ministry of Magic after Harry has some flashes of what Voldemort's thinking about during fifth year.
-->'''Ginny:''' Did you ever stop and think this is a trap?\\
'''Mallory:''' Of course it's a trap. That's why we're here. We're either bait or springing the trap.\\
'''Ginny:''' If we're bait, then isn't it bad for us to be here?\\
'''Mallory:''' It's only bad to be bait if you ''don't know'' that you're bait. And the first rule of not being bait is that you don't just go wandering aimlessly.

* Another Literature/SherlockHolmes[=/=]Series/DoctorWho {{Crossover}} with GenreSavvy characters is ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime''. Holmes himself is quite savvy, with the air of SeenItAll. Professor Moriarty is DangerouslyGenreSavvy, a nice little byproduct of becoming Time Sensitive. And [[WesternAnimation/SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury Beth Lestrade]] is quite firmly OneOfUs, an obsessive Sherlockian and a [[{{Fangirl}} geek]] for several more fandoms, with a habit of making [[FandomNod Fandom Nods]] and inducing Holmes to deliver a few [[TakeThat Take Thats]].
* Navarone from ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'' is quite genre savvy, and is well aware of the cartoon logic the world sometimes operates on. It particularly applies during the Crystal Empire arc, where he recognises Sombra is carrying the VillainBall, and takes full advantage of the cliched tactics of cartoon villains.

-->''"The military must've hit the Angel with something big," a man in NERV uniform replied. "Either an N2 mine or a fuel-air explosive."''\\
''"Never works in the movies," a third voice muttered.''\\
''There was another, longer vibration. "And that," the NERV employee continued with a proud grin, "is the secret anti-kaiju weapon that will work!"''
