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.

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.

They can tell fairly early that the [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter strange old man who's offering free lollipops]] is probably best avoided. And they've seen enough [[{{Horror}} Horror movies]] to know that when there's an AxCrazy murderer on the loose, the ''last'' thing you want to do is either [[NeverSplitTheParty split]] [[AloneWithThePsycho up]], [[DeathBySex boink your significant other]], or [[CuriosityKilledTheCast investigate strange noises]] in the SinisterSubway. They know how to avoid getting a bad rank on the SortingAlgorithmOfMortality.
