See HeroicWannabe, WideEyedIdealist, GrumpyBear, BlackAndWhiteInsanity, PrinceCharmingWannabe, and LordErrorProne for characters with this trait and GenreSavvy and its [[DownplayedTrope downplayed cousin]] FunctionalGenreSavvy for when characters get it right. DeathByGenreSavviness is a related trope. See also ThisIsReality, HeroOfAnotherStory, EntertaininglyWrong, ThinksLikeARomanceNovel. May be confused with TooDumbToLive.

* Crazy Mary Dobson was able to take advantage in the first match of the first Women Of Honor event by taking it outside of the ring, however, she ended up rolling back in to avoid a double count out, allowing Taeler Hendrix to recover. This would have been the right thing to do, given most US promotions end the match at a count of ten but since unifying the World and Pure titles Wrestling/{{ROH}} ends on a count of twenty, in line with Japanese promotions such as REINA and Diana where Dobson grew accustomed to fighting on the apron and floor in the first place.[[/folder]]

* When Ray González departed from WWC, he popped up in IWA Puerto Rico under a mask calling himself El Condor and using a Phoenix Splash he called the "Fénix Landing". Later González would return for another WWC run but be forced into retirement by Wrestling/{{Carlito C|olon}}aribbean Cool. Then a masked wrestler with an eerily similar build to González calling himself Rey Fénix showed up and helped a debuting Wrestling/{{Sting}} beat Carlito, who immediately identified him as a CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown. Since you're reading this page you already know it wasn't, the plot he was dealing with was CostumeCopycat, as WWC booker Ricky Santana set out to avenge his former {{tag team}} partner. When Carlito realized his error [[NoFourthWall he told the fans in attendance to request refunds]].[[/folder]]

Then a masked wrestler calling himself Rey Fénix showed up and helped a debuting Wrestling/{{Sting}} beat Carlito, who immediately identified him as a CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown. Since you're reading this page you already know it wasn't but can see why he thought so. It was actually WWC booker Ricky Santana, avenging his former {{tag team}} partner.
* Wrestling/{{Mistico}} was probably one of the greatest luchadors of all time and one of the biggest draws in post territorial Lucha Libre. So it's only natural that he'd come to Wrestling/{{WWE}}, under the guise of Wrestling/SinCara, and rock the place, right? Nope. He was a pure luchador by style, and there were reports of him refusing to learn English or learn USA WrestlingPsychology to fit in, thinking he didn't need to. Needless to say, he failed to make an impact. He could only have good matches with those already versed in lucha, which meant he wrestled Primo and Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio a lot. He also ended up rubbing many of his coworkers the wrong way, including making a very powerful enemy in Alberto. Needless to say, nobody was sad to see him go and he went to Wrestling/{{AAA}} to rebuild his legacy.[[/folder]]

''WARNING:'' It is very easy (and tempting) to list a character just because they are wrong about something, but that doesn't mean they are Wrong Genre Savvy. Even if they are wrong about their role IN a story, that doesn't necessarily make them wrong about the type of story they are in. Before adding an example ask yourself "If this character was correct, would it change the genre?" if the answer is "no" then it doesn't belong here.
