* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', each town [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals inexplicably has an identical]] Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny, all from a common family. The Magikarp Salesman, a recurring con-artist who tries to sell useless Pokémon to James, tries to pass himself off as a similar family to assure wary marks, but he's actually the same guy each time.

** Tarquin in general, thanks to his DangerouslyGenreSavvy nature, is a master of invoking, exploiting, and otherwise profiting from tropes. In particular, knowing that there is always a hero who defeats the evil empire, he accepts it and tries to set up his own future downfall to go spectacularly, ensuring that he will be remembered as a legend; a legendary EvilOverlord, but evil nonetheless.

* ''SeriesBuffyTheVampireSlayer'': In "[[SeriesFauxnale The Gift]]," Buffy and the Scoobies make an effort to exploit WhenThePlanetsAlign. Since the ritual to use the Key can ''only'' be performed at a specific time and place, they just need to [[HoldTheLine keep Glory occupied until her window of opportunity passes]].

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.

* ''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.
