* The main character of ''WebAnimation/PokemonRusty'' thinks he exists in the world of the Pokemon games, complete with the logic of said games. However, he's in a DeconstructiveParody of those games, where RealityEnsues and such thinking is an example of DidntThinkThisThrough. Not to mention, Rusty think he's the hero till the very end, not realizing, or capable of realizing, that he's in fact a terrible trainer who gets his Pokemon killed and they all hate him.

* In ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'',during the "Sleepwalker" story arc, Harvey Finevoice informs the (as of yet unnamed) female intruder that Linkara is walked in his room and weird things are happening in there, thinking that she's the one responsible. The intruder theorizes that Linkara is asleep and being tortured by [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Kreuger]], since he was reviewing NoES comics and [[WebVideo/MediaHunter this cliché]] [[WebVideo/{{Phelous}} has been done several times]] [[WebVideo/AngryVideoGameNerd since the AVGN first did it]]. Harvey shoots down this assumption with evidence showing that Linkara is very much awake.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Qj8PhxSnhg This Swedish Chef]] YouTube video has two Wrong Genre Savvy talking pumpkins. They try to use BriarPatching, advising the Chef to use increasingly bizarre/dangerous implements to smash them, on the assumption that he won't have them. However, this is the Swedish Chef we're talking about, who can always pull a sizable arsenal out of {{hammerspace}}.
* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'': Linkara in his ''Comic Book Quickies'' assumes that reading a text box that says the location of a story is the world's largest flea market, that the giant flea in the panel is the world's largest flea and assumes that the comic's creator doesn't know what a flea market is. The real answer he found was much more, surreal. The flea is the [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs the giant flea market]] [[ItMakesAsMuchSenseInContext eating flea]]. [[FlatWhat He reacts]] pretty the much the same way as the audience.

** It later hits Adam. In episode 2, he teams up with Gavin, only to find out Gavin's clone (long story) is in trouble. [[spoiler:Gavin and the clone die horribly by mousetraps.]] When Barbara confronts Adam and suggests they team up, Adam refuses because of what happened. [[spoiler:The killer is later able to ambush him and strangle him to death.]]

Even more he believes that [[IKnowMortalKombat beating Skyrim eight times and getting all of the Chaos Emeralds]] makes him even more suitable for surviving. [[spoiler:It doesn't. At all. The one time he tries to take action, fighting a puma, he freaks, drops his weapon and runs.]]

** [[TheSpoonyExperiment The Spoony One]] tries to apply {{LARP}}ing rules in the first encounter [[QuirkyMinibossSquad The Cloaks]] (Specifically throwing bird seed at them, saying "Two magic!" and expecting them to give up). He eventually realizes that [[AndYouThoughtItWasAGame they're not playing by the rules.]]

* Used in ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'', in "''Pokemon vs. Digimon''". Red believes that Agumon is a kind of rare Pokemon, and tries to capture Agumon with a Pokeball which [[YourMagicsNoGoodHere of course doesn't work]]. [[spoiler:Red is also bewildered at Tai running up to him and beating him up himself when Mega Charizard begins seriously hurting [=WarGreymon=] - he really honestly didn't see the other "trainer" getting directly involved in a fight. This makes sense if you go with the interpretation that fights in ''Pokemon'' battles are friendly duels while fights in ''Digimon'' [[DarkerAndEdgier often result in serious injury and death]], so it would make sense for Tai and Agumon to treat the battle more seriously.]]
