What does this have to do with what genre he's in?
* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'': Handsome Jack believes he's a hero bringing order and safety to Pandora, and he's fated to win because of this. He might have had a point if he wasn't an egotistical, sadistic despot.

* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'': The Overseer of Vault 111 only had food supplies for the staff up to 180 days after the bombs fell, at which point they were supposed to have heard back from Vault-Tec. When they didn't, the guards and scientists demand to be let out, but he knows that radiation levels are still so high that you'd die instantly just setting foot outside, leading to a riot that kills every single staff member. What he didn't know was that, while he'd be correct in real life, the ''Fallout'' universe runs on HollywoodScience, and radiation levels were normal within ''two'' days.

* ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'': Upon learning about [[spoiler:the {{wendigo}}s infesting the mountain]], Mike and Ash immediately jump to the possibility of Emily being [[spoiler:a ZombieInfectee due to a bite she received earlier]]. Not five minutes later, the group finds out it doesn't work that way, but that's potentially too late for Em.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' does this to the ''player''. One of the early contracts for the Fighter's Guild has you going to a batty old woman's house to take care of a "rat problem" in her basement. However, unlike beginner rat-based missions from ''other'' [=RPG=]s, [[spoiler: your job is to ''save'' the rats from mountain lions that have gotten into the old woman's basement.]] It makes sense in context, trust me. [[note]]This is actually an in-joke -- the first FG mission in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' ''does'' involve slaying rats for an identical-looking woman in Balmora, who shares her surname. Which is dating back as far as ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', where the first FG mission is also a rat-killing one. (Which ''also'' has Fighter's Guild missions that involve killing beasts such as lions in the client's house.)[[/note]]

* Undyne from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' thinks she's the protagonist of a {{Shonen}} anime that can use ThePowerOfFriendship and [[TheDeterminator pure determination]] to destroy evil. She's not entirely wrong about how the world works; she's just not the protagonist. At best, she's TheBigGuy.

Not An Example; as noted, it's Taught By Experience, not Genre Savvy, that leads him to his assumptions about Beauty Equals Goodness.
* Issun of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' is a big believer in BeautyEqualsGoodness, due to his experiences with the [[MsFanservice very sexy]] [[NatureSpirit blossom spirit]] [[BigGood Sakuya]]. He is infatuated and immediately trusting with the Priestess Rao due to her GagBoobs, and immediately ''dis''trusting of Queen Himiko because she keeps her face hidden at all times. [[spoiler:Of course, he's completely wrong about both women: Queen Himiko is GoodAllAlong and sacrifices her life to ensure Amaterasu's success, while Rao was killed by the evil [[{{Kitsune}} Ninetails]] long before Amaterasu's arrival on Ryoshima Coast and has since been impersonating her and manipulating the two heroes for his own ends]].

Not An Example. The presumption that Peach needs rescuing is Taught By Experience, not Genre Savvy.

By the time they found her... turns out Peach is not only absolutely fine, but she and Blaze had taken care of the clones and rescued Daisy and Amy. Uh... wrong game, you guys.
