Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* GenreBlindness: More believes if he just keeps quiet about his opinions on the marriage he can live out in peace. Lady Alice is much more GenreSavvy.

This trope is only concerned with how More is depicted in the play; how he was in real life is beside the point.
** Anecdotes and More's works suggest that he is the patron saint of Deadpan Snarkers.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: No mention is made of More's fondness for having heretics burned alive, or any of his other less appealing views.

** At More's actual trial, it is highly unlikely that Richard Rich committed perjury, as his own written account of his conversation with More would contradict him.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Henry VIII does have Biblical basis for wanting a divorce: lying with your brothers widow is considered to be a sin, and he genuinely believes his lack of a male heir is God's punishment, and that the King of Spain and the Pope are keeping him in a state of sin for there own reasons.

Once upon a time, Sir UsefulNotes/ThomasMore was a barrister who became the most trusted adviser of HenryVIII. More was a Catholic with a keen moral focus, and his advice was good.

Renamed tropes; "W" before "Y"!

* KangarooCourt: More's trial. Witnesses who could help him are conviently out of the country. The evidence against him is false, and done so for a very obvious bribe (Rich's job as Attonery General for Wales which is announced to the whole court). But the real clincher is when Cromwell intimidates the jury enough to ''not'' consider the evidence but deliver a guilty verdict right then and there.

* ReasonYouSuckSpeech: After More is found guilty of treason, and with nothing to lose he finally speaks his mind about Henry's separation with Rome. He angrily denounces Henry's actions as illegal, as Church Immunity from the State is promised in both Magna Carta and the Coronation Oath, and that the ''real'' reason he's on trial is not for refusing to take the Oath of Supremacy but for refusing to recogonize the marriage.

* YouHaveFailedMe: When Wolsey can't secure a divorce Henry charges him with treason, but he dies before he can even stand trial, or make it to the Tower. * YouTalkTooMuch: Roper is very open about his opinions (which he changes often) to point where More has to tell him to shut it before he gets accused of treason. * YourDaysAreNumbered: Wolsey is well aware that if he can't secure a divorce his days as Chancellor are over.

* SmartPeopleKnowLatin: Hnry tests how smart Meg is by conversing with her in Latin. Her Latin is better and Henry is a bit miffed but he doesn' make a big deal out of it.
