Genre Savvy Heroes are heroes who possess knowledge of their own medium or at-least common practices within it. Being Genre Savvy is the prospect of a character being aware of well used methods, plots and time-tables in their story-line. These are heroes who are not surprised by plot turns and may even be expecting them. Often played for laughs by the creators of a work about their own writing style, Heroes that acknowledge the clichés of their own worlds may in-fact be able to save the day because they can easily guess how events will unfold. This is usually done either purely for comedic purposes as a wink to the audience or specifically invoked because the hero in question has tremendous experience dealing with a certain type of villain or plot.
