* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob is alternatively GenreSavvy, WrongGenreSavvy, [[GenreBlindness Genre Blind]] and DangerouslyGenreSavvy. The rules of the story keep changing from underneath him so he doesn't know where he is most of the time; at one point the story seems to be a murder mystery, spirals into a Cosmic Horror, goes from there to being a [[TwoFistedTale pulp adventure thriller]] before ending up back as a murder mystery.

Now that he is confirmed to be working within the realm of what he knows, He doesn't hesitate a second to play off genre conventions.
