* ''LightNovel/MagikaNoKenshiToShoukanMaou'': Charlotte "Lotte" Lieben Frau is a sheltered princess from a small country in Europe who comes to Japan. Her whole understanding of Japan comes from watching anime, so she constantly tries to invoke anime tropes like SkinshipGrope and kisses people she just met because that's what people do in her anime. Other characters constantly inform her that's not how it works in real life.
* Rossiu from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. As one [=YouTube=] commenter put it, [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism he's the only cynical hero in a setting full of optimistic heroes]], which after the TimeSkip, leads him to commit heinous acts and even turn against the heroes due to him believing that it's the only way to save as many people as possible from the Anti-Spirals. Ironically, this puts him more in line with the ''villains'' of the series, as [[spoiler: both Lordgenome and the Anti-Spiral are cynical {{Anti Villain}}s who do what they do out of a genuine belief that it's the only way to prevent the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Spiral Nemesis.]]]]

* ''Manga/DigimonVTamer01'' is a setting where ComicBooksAreReal. Specifically, Yagami Taichi has a 100% win record in virtual pet battles, so Lord [=HolyAngemon=] brought him into the Digimon World in hopes Taichi and his monster Zeromaru would be unstoppable there too. Turns out that not only have they been winning in spite of Taichi's poor understanding of virtual pet mechanics, but that the experience Taichi does have largely doesn't apply. Fortunately, Taichi is a [[TheStrategist perceptive strategist]] who [[AwesomeByAnalysis quickly adapts]] and then [[TaughtByExperience refines his tactics]], while Zeromaru will [[{{Determinator}} fight to his last breath]]. Playing even more into this is that Zeromaru is a fan of Shonen Jump manga comics like ''Manga/OnePiece'' and thus believes anything that can't be overcome through [[BatManGambit clever plans]] can by gotten by with TrainingFromHell. Several characters mock them for their failure to grasp the importance of EvolutionaryLevels, something Taichi makes light of long after the point he should have really learned his lesson. It isn't until Gabo hammers in how the higher level monster pretty much ''always'' has an inherent advantage ''[[CharacterDevelopment after]]'' Gabo comes to respect Taichi and Zero that Taichi finally realizes how vulnerable Zero is.

* Gai Daigoji from ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' is a SuperRobotGenre {{Otaku}} that believes he's living in a Super Robot anime. He is extremely HotBlooded, JumpedAtTheCall of adventure, abuses [[CallingYourAttack attack name-calls]] and rejects his birth name Jiro Yamada in favor of his way cooler 'name of his soul'.

Before he reached that part, [[DroppedABridgeOnHim he's unceremoniously killed in the 3rd episode.]]

* In ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'' Katarina properly recognizes that she's in an otome game (sort of) and is the villainous bitch who gets in the heroine's way. Or at least, that's how it was supposed to work. Since she's someone who ''became'' Katarina rather than just being born as her, her personality is totally different. By the time she actually meets the girl she's supposed to end up bullying she's come up with about a dozen (terrible) countermeasures but fails to realize they're all unnecessary because she's derailed the entire plot. Now she's no longer the villain, she's the heroine and the heroine is just another love interest. Meanwhile, the genre has shifted into a parody of a harem series, but since she identifies as the villain she totally fails to realize she's the protagonist and wonders why all the pretty boys and girls keep visiting her all the time and giving her presents.
