** His big brother Peter can be the same way as he's convinced he's a jock and can be a star player if given the chance when in truth, he's horrible at every sport he tries.

* A moment of being GenreSavvy ended up being this happened when the Franchise/XMen dealt with Dracula. Yes, using a cross on Drac is a good way to keep him back. But, it really doesn't ''work'' unless you have the ''faith'' behind it, which the very Jewish ComicBook/KittyPryde and the oh-so-unrepentant ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} find out.

* ''TheIncredibleHulk'', when he appears in the SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} story arc ''Operation Annihilation'', assumes that when Deadpool is attacking him, that he was hired by somebody to provoke him into a trap. In truth, Deadpool is acting on his own [[DeathSeeker trying to provoke the Hulk into killing him]], but even when he tells Hulk that nobody hired him, the Hulk still assumes it's part of some more elaborate scheme. Later in the same story, some somewhat smart soldiers see the Hulk rampaging and guess that Deadpool is the cause of it. They guess right, but when they see Deadpool in a bus full of children, they assume he's taken them hostage, when he was actually trying to rescue them.
* Hunter Zolomon in his persona of [[EvilCounterpart Zoom]] from the ''TheFlash''. He's convinced that he's a StealthMentor / AntiVillain that helps heroes grow stronger by making them experience personal tragedies. In truth, he's delusional to the point where he qualifies as legitimately mentally ill, and is as much a danger to heroes as any fullblown villain is.

** Big brother Peter can also be this way as he thinks he's a star athlete and major jock just waiting for the chance to show his stuff in a game. In truth, he's a terrible athlete and the coaches think he's useless even as a bench-warmer.

** Plutonian, being a CaptainErsatz of {{Franchise/Superman}}, is expecting things to turn out in his life like they do in your average {{Superhero}} comic. The problem is that he is not in your average superhero comic, but a {{Deconstruction}} of one. This actually plays a part in what leads to his FaceHeelTurn, after which he becomes DangerouslyGenreSavvy.
** Max Damage, from sister title ''Incorruptible'', has a similar problem - he is GenreSavvy enough to realize that the best thing to keep a reformed supervillain like himself from sliding back to his old ways is to get a MoralityPet, so he gathers several people who serve him as those. However, he doesn't realize that he is in a deconstruction either, so [[spoiler: most of his new friends get broken in one way or another]].

Big plays the role of MagicalNegro to teach Boss how to be a better player, thinking he's the WiseMentor to help Euless escape his criminal father and be a better man.
