* AnalogyBackfire: [[spoiler:Domino's]] final moments were spent giving Manny a ReasonYouSuckSpeech, culminating in him telling him "If you just adopt the proper attitude, just look what can happen to you!" He was referring to all the success he'd been basking in due to being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, but the effect is lost because he says this [[spoiler:just as he's about to be ground to pieces by a pair of crushers he hadn't been paying attention to]].

[[spoiler:'''Hector''': [[GenreSavvy No.]] ('''''[[WhyDontYaJustShootHim BANG]]''''']])

[[spoiler:'''Hector''': [[GenreSavvy No.]] No. ('''''[[WhyDontYaJustShootHim BANG]]''''']])



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When confronting Big Bad Hector [=LeMans=], Manny attempts to illustrate his own GenreSavvy. Manny asks if {{this is the part where}} [=LeMans=] tells Manny his plans and then proceeds to spell them out in elaborate detail. [[spoiler:Losing patience, Hector replies "No," shoots Manny and says this is the part where he dies painfully.]]



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first scene with Hector has him sprouting [[spoiler:Don Copal]] without a second thought in a YouHaveFailedMe moment. This was presumably the fate of anyone he didn't like, if the Meadow is any indication. In fact, [[spoiler:Hector shooting Manny]] could be less of a case of Genre Savviness and more of Hector using his default method of dealing with obstacles. Some of Domino's dialogue in Year 3 suggests the latter.

** Hector is a DangerouslyGenreSavvy mastermind who doesn't hesitate to [[FateWorseThanDeath sprout]] his enemies in cold blood, to the point where he literally has a headquarters built atop [[AtopAMountainOfCorpses a massive field of flowers]]. Despite this, we almost never see him break his calm, business-like persona, and he makes sure all his flowers are carefully attended to and cared for. It's not supposed to fool anybody, it's to amplify how utterly bereft of empathy he is.

* BigDamnHero: Manny grows into one after a healthy dose of CharacterDevelopment. Even when he's literally [[spoiler:staring headlong into heaven's gates and given every right to walk in and never return to the UnderWorld again,]] he still won't do it until everybody who's counting on him is finally safe.
