* In the second volume of ''ComicBook/TheInvisibles'', a redneck in a diner is giving Lord Fanny, a Brazilian transvestite shaman, a hard time. In response, King Mob grabs the man's groin ([[GroinAttack and not in a good way]]) and lectures the redneck that this is not a cowboy movie in which the redneck is the hero, but a horror film where he's the idiot who picks on a stranger who turns out to be a vampire or something. At first the redneck apologizes, but then he decides to attack King Mob anyway, and thus we get to witness [[MuggingTheMonster the other trope]] invoked by King Mob in his little speech.
* ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'': A journalist discovers that certain New York residents seem to have been living for centuries without aging. He believes them to be vampires. The residents of Fabletown decide to play along and convince him he was mind-controlled by them and forced to have sex with an UndeadChild (in reality they knocked him out and took some suggestive photos with him and Pinocchio) and if he tells anybody their secret, they'll send the evidence to the police.
* ''ComicBook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool'' is a human girl from our world (or somewhere in the Marvel multiverse that's similar) that likes comics and is sucked into the mainstream Marvel Universe. So, she knows many of the tropes relative to superhero comics but sometimes this can backfire on her.
** In ''ComicBook/{{Champions 2016}}'', Gwen crashes a confrontation between the team and the bigoted sheriff of a small town, causes chaos and forces the team to escape. In the clear, the team demands an explanation. Gwenpool reveals that she obviously saved them from some super villain action forcing them to be bigoted since this is a comic book; no one could be ''that'' bigoted! [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]] says that things aren't so black and white and that people can be that evil without super villain influence. Indeed, Gwen gets incredibly frustrated by the lack of super villains showing up and leaves still thinking that a villain of some sort will show up. The only consolation given is [[ComicBook/AllNewXMen O5!Cyclops]] telling Kamala that he hopes that she finds that super villain somewhere.
** Gwenpool hits this again in her own book when she encounters SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}. She says, out loud, that she'll be able to kill him because this is her book and she has PlotArmor. When Wade hears this, he figures out what's going on immediately and gives her a terrible TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that points out how out of her league she is with him because his Plot Armor is ''much'' stronger'' than hers.
-->'''[[spoiler:Deadpool]]:''' [[spoiler:I've had hundreds of issues. I don't know how many series. I guest appear '''everywhere'''. Comics, [[VideoGame/{{Deadpool}} video games]], TV shows, and lets's not forget, [[Film/{{Deadpool}} the highest grossing R-Rated film of all time]]. You however, first appeared as a back-up in ''Comicbook/HowardTheDuck'' because they weren't sure if anyone would like you]]. You are the last person who can kill me.
** However, she then exploits ''his'' GenreSavvy by asking him an ArmorPiercingQuestion; it also shows the differences in the their various levels of saavyness and how Gwen uses hers. (Deadpool not only admits she's right, but he is a bit ashamed he nearly killed a high schooler):
--> '''Gwen:''' If you're so ''powerful''... If you know all this... ''stuff''... Then ''why'' are you trapped by ''Arcade?'' Why are you ''playing out this story?''
** '''''Frighteningly inverted''''' with Future Gwen. A BadFuture version of herself, she [[spoiler: at some point,experienced an event that embittered her to heroes and she proceeded to ''out'' Miles Morales out before starting a ''third Civil War'' by revealing all their secrets, ''just because it might be '''funny.''''']]
%%* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'': Sean is a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent lamia]] [[KnightInShiningArmor knight]] that leads LaResistance against {{Dracula}}'s corrupt and oppressive regime in {{Hell}}. He is fighting to free innocents and for the woman he loves and one of the enemies he fight with is a Nazi turned vampire. In any other story he would easily have been TheHero but alas, he is just a HeroAntagonist where previously mentioned [[NaziProtagonist Nazi is the main character]].
