Sometimes it's obvious a {{trope}} is going to happen. This is for when a GenreSavvy character knows a trope is going to happen, or is happening already, but rather than trying to [[DefiedTrope deny]], change, or even [[InvokedTrope hasten]] the trope, this character instead decides to take advantage of it.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': On one occasion, a GenreSavvy DarkActionGirl exploited WouldntHitAGirl to delay Sanji from saving Robin, knowing that Sanji won't fight a girl [[HonorBeforeReason even to save his own life]].

* ''LightNovel{{Shimoneta}}'': Ayame uses [[ModestyBedsheet a bedsheet]] as her 'Blue Snow' disguise, because she knows the Morals Decency Squad [[LoopholeAbuse can't touch her, without risk of exposing her body.]] Plus, they'd potentially implicate themselves with a minor (Ayame is 17), which allows her to run right by them without fear of being caught.

to:

* ''VideoGame/ResonanceOfFate'': Leanne exploits YourMakeupIsRunning; as she puts it, she likes wearing makeup as a reminder to stay strong, because if she cries, she'll ruin it.

** Android 16 exploits LogicalWeakness when fighting Cell. Since he's fully mechanical, Cell's [[TheAssimilator bio-extraction ability]] will not work on him; thus, Cell can't just [[CuttingTheKnot absorb him for an easy win]].



* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': [[TheChessmaster Aizen]] once exploited HiddenDisdainReveal. When he revealed he was EvilAllAlong, his Captain, Shinji, freely admits he always knew that Aizen was a bad guy and he never liked him, and had in fact only chosen Aizen as his lieutenant to keep an eye on him. In response, Aizen smugly reveals that that's exactly what he was counting on when he replaced himself with a doppelganger months ago; since Shinji never liked Aizen or got to know him, he was unable to see any strange behavior after the switch, so he never caught on to it.

to:

* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': whenever he dies, Phoenix Ikki [[ResurrectiveImmortality comes back to life]] and [[CameBackStrong is twice as strong]], so when facing the next to invincible Shaka his plan hinged on making sure he got ''killed'', and not simply knocked out, enough times to become stronger than his opponent. Much to Ikki's horror, Shaka caught on this and decided to remove his senses.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': A big part of the series is Yuki Terumi exploiting HateSink. Virtually everyone in-universe hates him, with several people in particular wanting him dead... and Terumi actually goes out of his way to ''cultivate'' others' hatred for him, because [[ThePowerOfHate he feeds on it to stay anchored to the world and power himself up]].

* The episode "Exploiting Television Tropes for Financial and Personal Gain?" of ''Podcast/PlumbingTheDeathStar'' is all about how the Duscher, Zammit, Jackson, and their two guests would abuse the conventions of television to make their lives easier. Jackson chooses to exploit CoincidentalBroadcast, Duscher chooses SoaplandChristmas, Adam chooses TreasureMap, and Michael Williams chooses SpecialGuest, which ends up being the best suggestion.

* ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'': Throughout the movie, Jafar exploits MurderByInaction, knowing that while the [[OurGeniesAreDifferent genie]] rules [[ThouShaltNotKill prevent him from directly killing anyone]], there's [[LoopholeAbuse nothing stopping him from setting up proxies and indirect assassination attempts where he technically doesn't lay a finger on Aladdin]].
