* 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 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 wrestlers of all time and one of the biggest draws in modern Lucha Libre. So its only natural that he'd come to {{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 American style 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 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 now works for Wrestling/{{AAA}} where he is rebuilding 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 WrongGenreSavvy. 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.

This can be a minefield. Say a stranger turns up on your doorstep; if he's a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]], he can't hurt you unless you [[VampireInvitation invite him in]], but if he's an AngelUnaware or KingIncognito, you might damn yourself by [[SecretTestOfCharacter turning him away]]. And look at it from the visitor's point of view; if you're an [[KnightInShiningArmour honourable fairytale knight]], you [[SacredHospitality won't lay a finger on anyone who's eaten your food]], but if you're one of TheFairFolk, eating your food [[FoodChains will trap him there forever]]. What's a GenreSavvy guy to do?

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