* DangerouslyGenreSavvy
** [[spoiler:Veidt]] in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}''. ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Etna]]. When confronted by the [[PsychoRangers Prism Rangers]], her response is to shoot them down as they transform.
** Infermon/Diaboromon in the Anime/DigimonAdventure movies. Attacking during the evolution sequence, it ''must'' be some kind of genius. ~ @/{{Carla}}
** Tarquin from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' exploits the underlying system of the Heroic Tale with brilliant ruthlessness. Xykon also knows a fair bit about the conventions for supervillains, but he doesn't exploit them quite as much.
*** Seconded. ~ Seiryu
** [[Film/TheDarkKnight The Joker]]. The only thing that stopped him from achieving total victory was [[spoiler: the people in the boats standing up to him and refusing to play his mind games, even if it meant getting killed in the process.]] ~ @/KingCrInuYasha
** [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]]. ~ Calatoria
** Almost any important character in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' could qualify, if only because basic Genre Saviness is equivalent to knowing gravity exists on it. [[MagnificentBastard Havelock Vetinari]] definitely counts.~ @/{{Ionz}}
** [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Nicodemus Archelone]]. Even cutting out the tongues of his minions is pointed out to have its upsides along with the downsides.
* DateRapeAverted
** [[Fanfic/NobodyDies NGE Nobody Dies]] That is all ~ Anthurak
--> '''Gendo Ikari''': "The lady you have drugged is the daughter of one of my scientists. Allow me to introduce you to her security detail."
** [[Series/{{Heroes}} Don't try to date rape Noah Bennet's daughter.]] [[PapaWolf Just don't.]] -- @/{{Cuchulainn}}
** [[spoiler: Joyce]] from ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'', showing that even if it's averted, it can ''still'' leave a lasting mark. ~ @/{{King of the Mime Swing}}

** AmericanMcGeesAlice is DarkerAndEdgier done absolutely ''right.'' The {{Steampunk}} level designs, the twisted (but horribly recognizable) versions of the characters, the "just a dream" atmosphere twisted to nightmares instead of whimsy. It's all given a BackStory that makes perfect sense. Top it off with the drummer for Music/NineInchNails using ''period'' instruments and toys to create a creepy soundtrack.

** Weirdly for a comic, but Comicbook/SpiderGirl definitely counts.

*** I was going to point out how Franchise/StarTrek influenced technology, but this clearly wins. ~ digiman619

*** [[BlatantLies The building was on fire, and it wasn't his fault]] ~ digiman619


Added DiffLines:

*** Seconded SO HARD; while he hasn't ''literally'' gone through Hell to save someone, he's gotten close enough several times.


Added DiffLines:

*** Seconded ~ digiman619


Added DiffLines:

*** Seconded, to the point that when he met the CEO of Monoc Security a.k.a. [[spoiler:Odin, King of the Aesir]], he told his guide that it's be insulting ''not'' to be a wiseass.

*** Thirded, ~digiman619
