* Edge Master from the ''Videogame/SoulSeries'' defies the practice of [[NamedWeapons naming weapons]]. His philosophy is that it is the soul that makes the warrior, not the weapon. A weapon is a tool, nothing more.

* Fanfic/{{Reconciliation}} seems to be headed towards {{Cuckold}} at first glance; [[KatawaShoujo Hanako]], after her Bad Ending, has isolated herself from Lilly and Hisao out of guilt for eight years. During this time, Lilly and Hisao have gotten together, and Hanako still has feelings for Hisao. The twist that forces Hanako out of her self-imposed isolation, since she's unable to bring herself to even see either of them, however, is [[spoiler:Lilly calling her to inform her of Hisao's death]].

'''Julio Scoundrél:''' Well, as an older mentor figure, the most likely scenario is that I'd return only to be randomly killed by an enemy of yours so that you can cradle my dying body while swearing revenge -- so don't take it personally if I say I sincerely hope we never cross paths again.[[note]]Elan does end up seeing Julio again, when he invites Julio to defy the trope and pull a BigDamnHeroes moment when Elan desperately needs a SpannerInTheWorks against a GenreSavvy villain. Julio survives the battle, taking his leave once again when he's finished.[[/note]]

Happens when a character InUniverse knows that a trope is about to happen, either due to being GenreSavvy or because someone is trying to {{invoke|dTrope}} it, and then actively attempts to {{avert|edTrope}} it, {{subvert|edTrope}} it, or {{invert|edTrope}} it.

The character might succeed, or might fail. The point is that '''the character is ''attempting'' to avoid a straight run of the trope, in-universe'''.

Compare RealityEnsues (which this may sometimes lead to).

Contrast InvokedTrope, ExploitedTrope, DiscussedTrope.

'''Not to be confused with a simple AvertedTrope, that has no prompting from any characters.'''

* In ''BaldursGate II'', the player can ask [[BigBad Irenicus]] to [[JustBetweenYouAndMe explain his plans and motivations]]. He flatly replies, "No, you warrant no villain's exposition from me."

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "The Best Night Ever", the ponies are running away from the chaos they've caused at the Grand Galloping Gala and Rarity drops her glass slipper. Pinkie Pie lampshades the trope of TheGirlWhoFitsThisSlipper and Rarity, who has no interest in meeting [[PrinceCharmless Prince Blueblood]] ever again, screams and crushes the slipper into shards.
