* 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.

* Rick displays a large amount of genre savviness in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'':
** Rick catches on to Mr. Needful and his cursed item store off the bat. First, he calls him out on being the Devil. Then, he suspects Mr. Needful would try to curse ''him'', so he instead destroys Needful Things by starting his own business to remove the curses themselves but retaining the powers:
-->'''Rick (on TV):''' Have you acquired creepy specific old stuff from a mysterious antique or thrift store that gives you powers but fucks with you in unforeseeable ways?
** In "Auto-Erotic Assimilation", Rick, Morty and Summer investigate a distress call from a seemingly abandoned ship. On board, they are approached by terrified aliens begging to be saved from a [[PuppeteerParasite hivemind entity]] that has taken over their home world. Rick immediately notices two glossy-eyed crew members and points out that "those two ding-dongs seem pretty calm about the whole thing." Cue [[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger horrific ''Body Snatchers''-style screeching and pointing]] and the assimilation of the remaining crew. Rick and family are [[spoiler:spared, since he and the hivemind used to date]].

-->'''Townsfolk:''' Oh, have you been here before?
-->'''Rick:''' No, no, but I've been to a few planets with the same gimmick. You know, sometimes it's called the Cleansing or the Red Time. There was this one world that called it just "Murder Night". I-it's a purge planet. They're peaceful, and then, you know, they just purge.

** In "Legend of the Gobblewonker", Dipper brings seventeen disposable cameras along with him to search for the Gobblewonker, since he realizes how often camera problems ruin monster hunts in movies. Also, Soos worries that he might just be a "side character" and get killed off. Ironically for Dipper, ''all'' [[RunningGag of his cameras get destroyed before the monster shows up]].
