They will often try to [[ExploitedTrope take advantage of tropes]], either to fail embarrassingly (often because they're actually WrongGenreSavvy), or to achieve remarkable feats to everyone else's astonishment. The sophisticated savvy can realize that they do not know what characters they are playing, or whether they are exactly in the same genre as the books they read.

read. If they are very good at taking advantage of tropes, they may evolve into CombatPragmatist and fight by their own rules.

When a person decides to weaponize this and [[DefiedTrope dodges every trope]] and IdiotBall that comes their way, they are DangerouslyGenreSavvy. When they don't, it's DeathByGenreSavviness. When a person prepares for every unlikely trope before it happens, they are CrazyPrepared. If a character uses his Genre Savviness just to make humorous observations, he's a MetaGuy. When characters are not consciously Genre Savvy but regularly act within the limitations of the genre they're in anyway, they are FunctionalGenreSavvy. Compare with MediumAwareness where the character knows what medium they are in.

Genre savviness sometimes occurs when AndYouThoughtItWasAGame shows up. This is a JustifiedTrope in situations where the character was initially recruited for their knowledge of the genre. (''Film/GalaxyQuest'', ''TheLastStarfighter'', ''Film/ThreeAmigos!'') It can also be justified through experience -- hopefully, after going through dozens of LetsYouAndHimFight scenarios a superhero will eventually see them coming and start trying to avoid them ahead of time.
