Advice for the Evil Overlord:
Despite the delicious irony, I will not force two heroes to fight each other in the arena.
Advice for the Hero:
I will employ some manner of surveillance so that when I leave a room and a traitorous comrade gives me the Malicious Scowl or Wicked Leer to my back, I will have ample warning of his impending betrayal.
Advice for the Bad Auxiliary Character (Alien or Monster on the Rampage):
No matter how pretty the girl is, leave her alone. It's almost guaranteed that your anatomies (not to mention your biologies) are incompatible.
Advice for the Good Auxiliary Character (Good Guy's Sidekick):
If my partner is named Dirty Harry, I should realize that there is a reason for that and ask for a transfer.
Further Evil (Advice on Fortress Construction):
All non-instantaneous deathtraps (drowning pools, trash compactors, gas chambers, etc.) should be isolated from the communications and power grids.
