* ''KamenRiderExAid'': The setting is based on a variety of video games, and Emu and Nico's knowledge of gaming puts them ahead of the others. Emu in particular is always prepared for any UnexpectedGameplayChange, rolling with the changes and adapting to new methods of play while his coworkers struggle. When an opponent attacks with a rhythm game pattern, Emu dances along with it, [[NoSell no selling]] the attack while a confused Hiiro takes damage. When they're beating on Burgermon, Emu saves the day by cooking burgers as that's the kind of game Burgermon was made to represent.

** Similarly, Dr. (Meredith) Rodney [=McKay=] is a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan to the point of {{Genre Savv|y}}iness. He even says that Dr. Beckett is their Dr. [=McCoy=], due to his views on Stargate travel (hint: it's [=McCoy's=] view on transporters). After an alien woman falls in love with Lt. Col. Sheppard, he exclaims "Oh God, he ''is'' Kirk!"

* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'': In "And Then There Was Shawn," while the kids are in detention, and things begin looking terrifying, we learn that Shawn is very Genre Savvy when it comes to [[{{Horror}} Horror movies]], quickly pointing out the [[AloneWithThePsycho dangers of splitting up]] and the fact that [[DeathBySex virgins never die]].

** In"A Long Walk to Pittsburgh", Cory is upset that Topanga is moving to Pittsburgh and wonders how their relationship will be affected. Shawn tells Cory he's worrying for nothing as he's seen [[TheMovingExperience this plot]] several times on sitcoms and the episode always ends with the character not moving after all. It's {{Subverted}} at the very end, when Topanga says goodbye and rides off in the moving van. Shawn is shocked that the van didn't turn around at the last second and asks "what kind of TV show is this?" Then its DoubleSubverted because Shawn didn't realize that the characters were actually in a MultiPartEpisode and that meant Topanga wouldn't come back until the end of the second part (which she does).

* ''{{Moonlighting}}'': The whole reason for Maddy and David not to continue their relationship was because they knew they were in a TV show that depended on the UnresolvedSexualTension of the two leads.

** Sisko isn't the only one either; Dax (or at least ''Jadzia'') occasionally has flashes of this, but usually only enough to [[DeadpanSnarker get a good line in]]. Garak on the other hand seems to know he's trapped in a fictional world, usually using his savvy to poke fun at Dr. Bashir's chronic GenreBlindness. Which is even funnier because Bashir's main hobby for much of the later seasons is playing holographic recreations of not-quite-Bond novels, about which ''he'' is extremely Genre Savvy and Garak knows ''nothing''... there's extra bonus irony from Garak being an ''actual'' former intelligence officer who sardonically observes that all of Bashir's crazy antics in saving the day according to the rules of the fictional spy plot they're enacting is much rosier than the real thing which is exactly why Bashir can solve the programme and Garak can't (Garak thinks like a "real" intelligence agent, Bashir thinks like a "fictional" (re: romanticised) one. At least Garak appreciates the fancy tuxedos that he and Bashir get to wear as part of the game. (Garak also being a tailor and all.)
-->'''Garak:''' "I'm beginning to think I joined the wrong intelligence agency!"
** The Female Changeling shows in this dialogue from "What You Leave Behind" that she isn't inclined to pointlessly prolong the lives of her prisoners, thus giving them more chances to escape, by bringing them in for a final confrontation.
-->'''Broca:''' Shall I have them brought here?
-->'''Female Changeling:''' What for? (to Weyoun) Have them executed immediately.

** Grace grew up watching slasher films with her father so she knows the typical twists and turns, but she turns out to be ''too'' genre savvy because she keeps trying to connect [[spoiler: the Bathtub Baby]] to the murders [[spoiler: thereby making herself a suspect.]] She also briefly distrusts [[LoveInterest Pete]] because [[spoiler: he's the school's mascot so owns a Red Devil costume, the disguise used by the killer]]. She is smart enough to try and convince Zayday that they'll be safer if they quit Kappa though.
