* In an episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}} Sun And Moon'', Lillie and Gladion go through a temple together and Lille twice makes a mistake about the genre she is in, by expecting puzzles where there are none. At the entrance to the temple she sees three statues and three symbols on the wall behind the statues and she incorrectly guesses that [[StockVideoGamePuzzle the door is unlocked by moving each statue to the correct symbol]], apparently thinking by AdventureGame logic. Gladion stops her and shows her that, 1, the door isn't locked and, 2, moving the statues sets off a [[SpikesOfDoom spike trap]]. Later they come to a gap without a bridge, and Lille guesses based on books she read that there is [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade an invisible bridge that she tries to reveal by throwing sand on it]]. Gladion tells her that there is not an invisible bridge and has Silvally jump across the gap while carrying them, then explains that there was a bridge but it fell down, which Lillie didn't recognize the remains of.

* ''LightNovel/DoYouLoveYourMomAndHerTwoHitMultiTargetAttacks'': Masato Oosuki is a fan of anime and video games. When he gets sent to a video game world, he automatically assumes he's TheChosenOne in a straight forward Isekai story, where he becomes stupidly overpowered, has a legion of large-chested girls fighting over him, and becomes a legendary hero. Unfortunately for him, he's in a comedic parody of an Isekai where his mother is the real overpowered hero while he's actually very weak and has no secret power hidden under the surface, and the only girl interested in him is as flat as a board.

* ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'': When the four Heroes are summoned to the fantasy world, The Sword, Spear, and Bow Heroes automatically assume they are in a video game world where there are no consequences and everyone else is a mindless NPC. The three also constantly follow the tropes of their favorite video games, which leads to them making a lot of stupid mistakes and getting a lot of people killed. The Shield Hero constantly tries to drill into their heads that this world is real and that they need to be more realistic and practical.


* ''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.

%%* Yuya, the main character of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', initially played this straight due to thinking he's in a typical gaming anime similar to ''[[Anime/YuGiOhGX GX]]'' and ''[[Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL ZEXAL]]'' and not being smart enough that he's actually in a DeconstructorFleet CosmicHorrorStory commonly found in Creator/GenUrobuchi's works such as ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' and mixed with several elements from ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'' and ''Franchise/BlackRockShooter''. As the story progresses, it is later subverted when it turns out that [[{{Reconstruction}} Yuya was right all along]], though the series takes on a more realistic approach in handling several themes the franchise is known for (ie. deck building, character specialties, WarriorTherapist, PowerOfFriendship, etc.).

* Edo Phoenix of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' dresses, acts, and fights crime like he's Franchise/{{Batman}} -- dressing in a monster costume and pursuing criminals by night, searching for the one who killed his father, while living as a wealthy, famous celebrity during the day. He even duels with an AntiHero-themed deck. Between his cynical view of the world, lifestyle, and crimefighting ''modus operandi'', he truly lives as if he truly thinks he's the AntiHero protagonist of a vigilante SuperHero comic book... which would be great, if he weren't TheRival of a shonen [[GamingAndSportsAnimeAndManga Gaming And Sports Anime]].

* 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.]]
