* Someone in ''Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}'' was GenreSavvy. At one point the protagonist takes a look around at his fellow firemen and realizes that it can't be coincidence that they are all grim, stoic-looking men with thick, carbon-black hair.

** A lot of Devil Fruit users leave the impression that they are designed around the powers they receive from eating the eponymous fruits. The most jarring has to be the user of the Moku Moku no Mi (Smoke-Smoke Fruit), who is a CigarChomper named, well, '''Smoker'''.

* Requisite Discworld example: In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', Moist notes that Hubert is one of those names you can automatically put a face to. There might easily be Huberts who are tall and thin, but the Hubert he is introduced to is a good proper Hubert, that is to say, stubby and plump. (He is a bit off-model by having red hair, but it's no great distraction.)

** In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', it's noted that looking like a piglet having a bright idea and sounding like a yappy gog doesn't ''necessarily'' mean Horsefry's an obnoxious UpperClassTwit, in much the same way as wearing red robes and a wig and sitting at the front of the courtroom doesn't necessarily mean someone's a judge.

* In one ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' comic, the group manages to defeat several opponents (primarily spellcasters) by first having a chat with their tailors. Once they know what theme the customer is going for, figuring out their [[ElementalRockPaperScissors weaknesses]] is a snap.
