** Detective Comics # 823 has Batman trying to help Poison Ivy, before discovering a recording of people she tortured and killed. When he yells at her for it, she just acts amused that he's angry because he should know who she is by now.

-->'''Catwoman:''' Do you ''ever'' take the night off? [[DoubleEntendre Do you ever take the suit off?]]
-->'''Batman:''' Not on nights like this, Selina. It's what I do.
-->'''Catwoman:''' Fine! I guess I'll hit an art gallery or two while the big bad Bat's distracted.

Characters are the sum of their tropes. Sometimes the GenreSavvy even recognize this about themselves. When another character makes a comment about their behavior that fits their character, they will usually respond with something like, "It's what I do."

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Vila, the only member of the crew who [[NotInThisForYourRevolution never makes a pretext of acting out of revolutionary ideals]] has an opportunity to set up on a planet with a beautiful woman far away from Blake's HopelessWar against the Federation.
-->'''Kerril:''' It's a chance to be free. You saw that place, it's beautiful.
-->'''Vila:''' But there's nothing there worth stealing. ''[Kerril sighs]'' No, listen. You know why I neutralize security systems, open safes, and break into vaults? [[MasterOfUnlocking It's because I can and most people can't.]]
-->'''Kerril:''' To satisfy your ego.
-->'''Vila:''' No, not really. It's just that, it's what makes me, me. Kerril, a thief isn't what I am, it's ''who'' I am. You wouldn't like what was left of me.

to:

-->'''Doon:''' "How do you know it will work?!?"that's what you should do?"


Added DiffLines:

Interestingly, both a comedic and a poignant example of this particular trope; comedic because it's the punchline to a repeated catchphrase ("Not my job!") and poignant [[spoiler:because it's not clear what happens to Sul after he helps Lina, Doon, and Poppy escape]].

* ''[[FanFic/AdoptedDisplaced Wily's Wittle Wub]]'': Variant in that someone ''else'' says "It's what he does". Specifically, in the start of the ''Mega Man 8'' arc:
-->"Dad, Albert builds eight new robot masters to change a light bulb," Mega Man countered dryly. "It's kinda his thing. Unless there's something more, I'm pretty sure we can ignore it."
