* Most of the protagonists in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse grew up reading {{Marvel}} Comics and DC Comics, and watching lots of anime, so they're pretty well suited to be growing up as mutants in a superhero universe.

* In the Machinima, ''Machinima/BrawlUniverse'', all of the characters in the show tend to be this to a degree. This might also be attributed to how they seem to watch many real life movies in their own time, like X-Men Origins and the Dark Knight.

* The hosts of WebVideo/EatYourKimchi, Simon and Martina Stawski are savvy with both North American and Korean popular culture.
* In ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'', Hitler's arch-nemesis Hermann Fegelein possesses a form of cartoonish immortality. No matter what plan Hitler uses to get rid of Fegelein, he never permanently dies. Multiple of the other characters are genre savvy enough to have noticed this and sometimes point this out to Hitler whenever he tries to plan Fegelein's demise.

* The EvilOverlordList is all about an aspiring villain who, noting every villain they've seen or read about [[VillainBall always lose by making the same mistakes]], makes a handy guide to being a savvy villain.

* When Fritz von Baugh sowed seeds of dissent in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'', planting evidence that WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic was planning to blow everyone up with dynamite, WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob saw right through that plan, noting that those with brains prey on the brainless. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Then it turns out that]] [[WrongGenreSavvy Critic]] ''[[WrongGenreSavvy did]]'' [[WrongGenreSavvy order the dynamite.]]]]

* The hosts of WebVideo/EatYourKimchi, Simon and Martina Stawski are savvy with both North American and Korean popular culture.
* Darcy in ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries''. He's savvy enough to ask if he's being recorded when his sister calls him. He knows she's doing a series of demo recordings of their new story-telling application. He promptly ends the conversation when the answer is yes.
* ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'': Jane is genre-savvy from the start. She seems to know that she is in a dangerous situation and tries to deal with it as best as she can. However, she's lonely and doesn't have a good family or any close friends, so she must go with living at Mr Rochester's house. She uploads her video because she wants advice and feedback from her viewers (in-universe, her viewership is much smaller than in reality). She mostly expects people to be abusive to her, and some of her videos are meant as a piece of evidence if anything serious should happen.
* Gaea has shown signs of this a couple times in ''Series/{{Noob}}''.
** When she has a [[DirtyCoward rare fight]] against someone towards whom she has a personal grudge, two of her guildmates offer to help and she refuses. However, when one of them says "Well, we might as well leave" Gaea has them stay in case she ends up needing help after all.
** She later says that she would never let a rematch happen after winning a duel.
* The Cracked video [[http://www.cracked.com/video_18615_if-characters-knew-they-were-in-90s-kids-movie.html If Characters Knew They Were In a 90s Kids Movie]] is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin built on this trope.]] Really, Cracked does this a lot.
%%* LetsPlay/PewDiePie is probably one of the most savvy gamers on Youtube, considering the games he plays.
* Creator/AchievementHunter's [[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterGrandTheftAutoSeries Let's Play GTA Series]]: The players regularly orchestrate elaborate heists on convenience stores, which in itself is an AffectionateParody of the heist genre, complete with a run of half the BetrayalTropes index in the vein of "no honour among thieves."
--> '''Geoff:''' [[FamousLastWords Why did you stop the boat?]]
* LetsPlay/SeaNanners is ''very'' good at both working out who the traitor or murderer is in ''VideoGame/GarrysMod''[=/=]''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'', and also at picking off innocents when it's his turn to be evil. He, in turn, gets hit by this a lot in those games, owing to his devious behaviour and the "Never Trust Nanners" meme that spawned as a result.
* LetsPlay/DaithiDeNogla has a few examples, including the aforementioned "Never Trust Nanners" meme. Upon running into LetsPlay/SeaNanners in ''Murder'', he's immediately suspicious.
-->'''Daithi:''' You look fucking crazy.
-->'''Nanners:''' Good. ''([[ProperlyParanoid Adam pulls out a knife and stabs him.]])''
* LetsPlay/{{Jayuzumi}} both displays this and gets hit by this in equal measure. On his end, he knows just how to piss certain players off enough for them to entertain him and the viewers. The players he interact with show this from time to time as well, with some immediately muting him after advising others to do the same, while others realise instantly that he's using a soundboard.
* LetsPlay/HatFilms are aware that any mention of "Geoff" (the silverfish that constantly annoys them) probably won't end well. Similarly, whenever something gets set on fire, they often blame [[PyroManiac Smiffy]].
* Some contestants from ''Main/KawaiiVinnysMinecraftSurvivor'' are prone to being this. The most notable example was [=Epic_Duck3=] (now known as [=EpicsAdventure=], the host of ''Main/EpicsGameshows'') in Season 6 who managed to guess who was with who on the other tribe as well as how others were probably thinking due to knowing them from previous games.
** [[spoiler: [=DeviantKyle=], a returnee,]] from season 6 knew [[spoiler:two-time finalist, [=AlcoholicRobot=],]] better than anybody else due to [[spoiler: playing with him in two past seasons and knew how strong he ''really'' was and warned others about him]].

* Ani Mae, a superhero from the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', whose powers stem from the fact that she's the real life incarnation of an anime MagicGirl, has [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]] as one of her superpowers. Knowing that she is essentially a living cartoon superhero, she's very good at predicting what the villains will do next, because she knows what cartoon and comic book supervillains do.
