** SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker [[DidntSeeThatComing himself]] is guilty of this towards the Weeper. To be fair, it ''was'' the father of modern, gimmicked supervillainy, so he ''had'' a good reason to {{squee}}.

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', military otaku Kensuke Aida is convinced that mechas are the coolest thing EVER and spends nearly the entire series [[WrongGenreSavvy expecting]] to become a pilot, even begging Shinji to pull some strings (despite the fact that Shinji has no influence whatsoever).

** Barbara Gordon, the original ''ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}'' ([[CanonDiscontinuity Not counting]] the Bat-Girl from the 50's and 60's), was dressing up in a costume for a Halloween party when she stumbled into crimefighting. Prior to this, she was either disinterested in costumed adventuring, or was planning to emulate different superheroes (Different continuities give different backstories, but most at least agree that, whatever her specific plans were, they did not involve bats). That first encounter earned her the label "Batgirl" and she was automatically associated with Batman in the public consciousness. Only her subsequent refusal to stop got Batman involved in training and working with her.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': After Buddy Pine is rejected as a sidekick by Mr. Incredible, [[LoonyFan he becomes Syndrome,]] the BigBad super-villain of the film. He proves to be frighteningly competent, largely from being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, though this proves in part to be his undoing. Even as a {{supervillain}}, Syndrome continues to talk about Mr. Incredible as though he were a character in a favorite comic book, critiquing his actions in terms that will be very familiar to anybody who has ever been in a comic book store.

* According to the [[AllInTheManual backstory]] of ''VideoGame/{{Earth 2150}}'', the founder of the [[LadyLand Lunar]] [[OneNationUnderCopyright Corporation]] was a young scientist, who has dreamed of becoming an astronaut since he was a little boy (then again, most kids do). Several decades later, he finds himself working a low-level lab job with no prospects of space. Deciding that enough is enough, he goes to a number of wealthy investors and, through sheer passion, manages to secure financing for a new company, dedicated to putting humanity into space. The company puts the first private SpaceStation in orbit, followed by another shortly after. Then he realizes that WorldWarIII is imminent and puts every company resource into building a permanent colony on the Moon. The colony is settled not long before the first nukes fly on Earth. By 2150, LC is powerful enough to go toe-to-toe with the world's superpowers (the [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain Eurasian]] [[TheEmpire Dynasty]] and the [[FallenStatesOfAmerica United Civilized States]]). By 2160, they are engaged in a war across the Solar System with the ED.

* In ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'', Illya is a major fan of various magical girl anime, then becomes one herself. However, she doesn't enjoy being one at first, as she understands the difference between admiring them on TV and actually being in life or death situations. She later accepts her calling because it allowed her to meet her best friends and she wants to help and protect them, plus being able to fly is a nice perk.
