This post was deleted from the Wrong Genre Savvy page of Fan Fic, so I refined/clarified where the character gets their knowledge of tropes from in the hope of having the example re-added.

Before adding an example ask yourself "If this character was correct, would it change the genre?" if the answer is "no" then it doesn't belong here.
As a Ship Fic, I'd assume the genre wouldn't change if she was right, so this is an example of Genre Savvy, instead.

I'd agree that's the Genre Savvy trope. The character is mistaking her role in the genre, not the genre itself. Isn't there a trope for villains who think they're the hero of the tale when they're not?

It feels so good to have no signature at last.
