Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* GenreSavvy: One of the faceless mooks drops his weapons and runs for it in the few seconds before [[spoiler:the Peacekeeper starts its rampage]].

Giant Space Flea From Nowhere involves an unheralded menace that the hero has to fight as part of the plot. An unrelated menace that shows up at the end is something like And The Adventure Continues.

Adding example.
Added DiffLines:
* AdaptationalHeroism: Combined with DecompositeCharacter; Tenma in this adaptation [[spoiler: actually grows to accept Astro as his son, whereas other incarnations reject Astro before becoming a recluse or the story's BigBad]].

* CompositeCharacter: Inverted. While Dr. Tenma turns evil in other versions, in this version he stays good and [[CanonForeigner President Stone]] fills the role that Evil!Tenma normally does.

* ComingOutStory: Astro Boy's secret of being a robot resembles most Coming Out Stories, especially the nighttime scene when he almost "comes out" to Cora.

* StrawmanPolitical: President Stone. Cut taxes for his rich friends and starts a war to get himself reelected.

* StrawmanPolitical: President Stone. Cut taxes for his rich friends and starts a war to get himself reelected. Very likely a TakeThat and NoCelebritiesWereHarmed copy of recently-former [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush President Bush]], who was still a favored target of all mass media.

Editing.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Played somewhat inconsistently; it's a major theme of the movie that Astro and the other robots possess human worth, but the filmmakers aren't above thoughtlessly trashing a robot for a cheap laugh.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Played somewhat inconsistently; it's a major theme of the movie that Astro and the other robots possess human worth, but the filmmakers aren't above thoughtlessly trashing a robot for a cheap laugh. Rather perplexing, seeing as the source material was all about playing with this trope, with some FantasticRacism thrown in for good measure.
