* ''AustinPowers''. Dr Evil has captured Austin and wants to place him in "an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death" (Dr. Evil's words), and [[StatingTheSimpleSolution his son Scott wonders]] [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim why they can't just shoot him]]. Despite Scott's best efforts, Dr Evil's ContractualGenreBlindness prevails, and Austin predictably escapes from the [[SharkPool pool of mutated sea bass]] that he's suspended over.

A '''Defied Trope''' happens when a character knows, InUniverse, 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. They might succeed or they might fail. The point is that '''the character is ''attempting'' to avoid a straight run of the trope, in-universe'''.

* In the Ben10UltimateAlien finale, [[ArchEnemy Vilgax]] defies the DemotedToDragon trope by faking submission to [[BiggerBad Diagon]], taking advantage on him to get rid of the third member of the BigBadEnsemble and then [[{{OutGambitted}} out-gambit]] his "master" by consuming him, thus remaining the final villain.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]]
