Genre Savvy means "savvy because they're familiar with in-universe fiction of a particular genre," not just "smart."
** Likewise in a ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' sketch at the end. Kirk, Bones, Spock, Layla, and [[RedShirt Toby the Red Shirt]] have escaped onto a nearby planet after their ship explodes. Having no food on hand, the main crew take a vote and decide to eat the Red Shirt. However he turns out to be GenreSavvy enough to expect this, and reveals he was the only one who brought a phaser.

** Also, because Literature/{{Discworld}} is awesome, played with in ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents'', when the WrongGenreSavvy Malicia pretends to hold this view so she can provoke Maurice into [[TalkingAnimal talking again]].

* Discussed and subverted in {{Stephen King}}'s ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree''. Al's Famous Fatburger is called Al's Famous Catburger because it's priced well below the wholesale price of ground beef. Al later reveals that the price is so low because he has been [[MundaneUtility using his ability to travel through time to buy meat at 1958's prices]].

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' ** At least in the dub, there is an ongoing joke among the cast about eating Oolong, [[PettingZooPeople who is a talking shape-changing pig]]. He is also defensive when people look at him funny since he assumes they're thinking about eating him. ** Goku muses briefly about eating Turtle after saving him from someone who did want to eat him. He decides against it, saying Turtle didn't look that tasty.

* ''A Boy And His Dog'' by Harlan Ellison notoriously inverts this trope in its TwistEnding, when [[spoiler: the boy eats the girl because she matters less than his dog]]. Compare film example above.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' features Dogmeat. Just like any of the feral dogs in the game, if he dies you can loot his corpse for meat.
to:
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' features Dogmeat. Just like any of the feral dogs Every main game in the game, ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' series includes a dog named Dogmeat -- the same one in the first and second, his descendants in the third and fourth. The name is a reference to this possibility, and in games where he isn't essential and thus immmortal, if he dies you can loot his corpse for meat.

* One of Ryoga's chief motivations [[IJustWantToBeNormal to rid himself]] of [[BalefulPolymorph his curse]] in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' is so that he can stop being on someone's menu. Instants after first falling into the Spring of Drowned Piglet, he was picked up and nearly boiled ([[FridgeLogic who boils a pig alive anyway]]?) Then Shampoo, who hadn't met him yet, ran into him and prepared him as a meal for Ranma (but he was still alive and whole, to Akane's relief.) Then ''Cologne'', Shampoo's great-grandmother, nearly sliced him up for dinner before Shampoo (who knew better now) stopped her.
