- Any mooks in any all-against-one martial-arts movie fight scene ever. Seriously, after seeing the first dozen or so of their fellows being fed to a human blender, you'd think they'd re-evaluate their strategy, but no. Unless they're relying on Conservation of Ninjutsu (which, being genre blind, they aren't).
- It's the last Mook standing who you really have to feel the sorriest for. If only he'd ever seen a martial arts flick, he'd know to just smile and walk away at that point.

Is there a separate term if the *audience* is Genre Blind? That is, the movie is presented and marketed in a way that it's not clear what exact genre it falls into, and as a result, the audience doesn't know what tropes to expect or what Willing Suspension of Disbelief to do?
