* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' has # 21 and # 24 . In "The Lepidopterists", they are well aware that they posses the perfect combination of "expendable and invulnerable". They're sent off on a mission with # 1, and sayhis cool professionalism marks him for death, while [[ThoseTwoGuys their bumbling incompetence will see them through to the end]], like it always does. Later, they point out that # 1's lack of a name makes him a RedShirt, he reveals his name (Scott Hall), and they say it's just a device to make his impending [[MauveShirt death more emotional]]. Ultimately, he meets his fate when his impressive escape techniques draw the attention of Brock Sampson. [[spoiler:And then somehow survives to show up in another episode.]] # 21 and # 24 were pretending to be wax sculptures at the time. [[spoiler: Ironically, or at least in a cruel twist of fate, in the season 3 finale, 24 stands near the Monarch's car when it suddenly explodes. He's killed in the blast as 21 unintentionally catches his burning head. Why? Because he wore his seat belt and couldn't get away in time.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold:'' "The Pig War" has Arnold and his friends participate in a war reenactment where the teams try to capture Arnold's pet pig, Abner. When Abner's captured by the other team, they declare they will roast him at sundown. To get Abner back, the kids construct a giant wooden pig that they hide inside, a la the TrojanHorse, and deliver it to the opposing fort as a gift. The soldier in charge of the gate is well aware of the story and trick and tries to point it out to their leader, Rex Smythe Higgens. Higgens [[IDontPayYouToThink ignores him]] and orders him to open the gate. Once the Arnold and his friends all pop out to fight, the soldier glares at the leader and throws out his hands as if to say "[[IWarnedYou See? I told you so]]."

* The title character from ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' was pretty GenreSavvy himself. Lampshaded quite often, given the series.

** Kim, Ron, Shego, and Senor Senior Jr. are of the most GenreSavvy. This however doesn't prevent them from falling victim to GenreTropes (or that they fall into the tropes as part of a fourth-wall bending realisation that they have to do so to have a story), but does make for some great LampshadeHanging afterwards.

** This is parodied shortly after when Stimpy tells Ren [[ExactWords there is no dog]] only for Ren to attacked by '''a killer, psychotic baboon'''.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Butt Out," Kyle realizes halfway through the episode that they're getting involved in one of their typical disasters and talks Stan and Kenny into abandoning it; Cartman, however, refuses to heed the warning, and thus they all get involved anyway. At the end, Kyle even comments that [[AllForNothing they've learned nothing]].
-->'''Kyle:''' Because, if we go to the tobacco company, I know exactly what'll happen. They'll take us in, and then Creator/RobReiner will show up with all the townspeople, [[TorchesAndPitchforks holding torches or something]], and there'll be a big showdown until [[AnAesop we talk about what we learned]], and change everyone's minds--this is all following a formula!
** The two-parter "Pandemic" special had Craig [[ADayInTheLimelight get involved in their misadventure]], and [[CharacterizationMarchesOn reimagined]] him as a DeadpanSnarker totally aware of, and annoyed by, their antics.
-->'''Craig:''' Do you guys know why nobody else at school likes hanging out with you? ''(the other boys look at each other)'' Because you're always doing stuff like this. You're always coming up with some stupid idea to do something, and then it backfires, and then you end up in some foreign country, or in outer space or something. ({{Beat}}) That's why no one likes hanging out with you guys.
