* ''Kodomo no Jikan'' spends a volume or two [[PlayedForLaughs playing]] PrecociousCrush[=/=]FilleFatale[=/=]TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]], then [[MoodWhiplash violently]] [[CerebusSyndrome switches]] to a brutal deconstruction of the latter two tropes.

* In ''Manga/MiraiNikki'', [[{{Yandere}} Yuno Gasai]] deconstructs the SatelliteLoveInterest by showing exactly what kind of obsessive person someone needs to be in order for them to base ''every action'' they do around one person (not to mention the other effects of such obsession, such as taking ClingyJealousGirl to MurderTheHypotenuse levels). This is because, if anyone threatens to take him away from her, Yuno equates it to her entire future being taken away: after the abuse that she went through [[spoiler: and how Yukiteru [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe once was kind to her]] right after she killed her AbusiveParents]], Yuno's life literally depends on having Yukiteru for emotional support. He truly '''is''' her future, and she'd rather kill and die than risk losing him. [[spoiler: And ultimately, she does ''both''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' deconstructs NinetiesAntiHero in regards to Younger Toguro. Ridiculously muscled and [[BadPowersBadPeople possessing tremendous power]]? Check. Cold, aloof son of a bitch with little care for others? Check. No inhibition to destroying anyone he is ordered to kill and/or needs to be killed to fulfill his goals. Check. Though the "Hero" part? [[spoiler: He is a FallenHero who made his DealWithTheDevil with the intention of using his newfound eternal youth to avoid being powerless to stop massacres like the one that cost his students their lives. However, he gradually became more [[JadeColoredGlasses jaded in his outlook]] and lost faith in his mission upon realizing he [[HeWhoFightsMonsters had become no different than any of the demons he fought]], being that his wish for eternal youth was based more out of his selfish desire to never grow old than it was out of any utilitarian goal he had used as an excuse.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' arguably deconstructs WillfullyWeak in Fai's case. After being forced to give up his PowerLimiter phoenix tattoo to Yuuko as his traveling price, Fai swears off the use of his magic out of fear of what might happen. It ultimately turns out that without the limiter, Fai is even ''more'' dangerous than he would be otherwise; he's cursed to kill the first person he meets who's stronger than he is, and holding back makes it much more likely he'll find someone who outclasses him.

* In the ''Manga/BlackButler'' manga (the anime didn't reach that part), [[spoiler: Elizabeth Middleford]] deconstructs DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel. Unlike most girls that fit this trope, she does this [[spoiler: for the sake of her beloved]], and not because she simply likes being rescued or wants to look more hepless for her own benefit. It also shows that [[spoiler: Lizzie]] actually had to sacrifice a few things in order to [[spoiler: maintain Ciel's pride]]; i.e., [[spoiler: keeping her badassery at bay caused her ''emotional pain'' since she was deeply scared [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon of being rejected by Ciel if it ever came out]] ]], and not to mention there's the ValuesDissonance coming from the VictorianBritain times (women who didn't act like [[ProperLady proper ladies]] would face scorn and discrimination, so pulling this stunt had quite the bad effect on the girl's self-worth).

** Goku's status as TheAce is deconstructed starting from the Android/Cell Saga. Because he is so good and so powerful his friends and family [[CrutchCharacter tend to depend on him too much to solve the current problem]]. They also become noticeably deflated and pessimistic when he isn't around and Gohan firmly believes that he can never surpass his father, despite Goku showing him otherwise. Goku's death in Trunks' timeline was one of the many reasons things got so bad and Bulma invented the Time Machine mostly to save him, firmly believing that he could something to stop the androids. Vegeta eventually [[OvershadowedByAwesome got so sick of being overshadowed by Goku]] that he sold his soul for power and unleashed Majin Buu upon the world. Goku himself has realized that his loved ones are far too dependent on him; he knows that one day, he will be dead for good, and if his loved ones don't stop relying on him so much, then no one will be able to counter the next big threat to Earth.

*** The end of the Kid Buu fight deconstructs HumbleHero. [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold Because Goku always save the world from the shadows]] no one, outside a few, know of his deeds. So Goku when begs the world for energy to power the Spirit Bomb that will kill Majin Buu, only the people who intimately knows him listens. Everyone else blows him off like Vegeta. It takes Mr. Satan, the resident FakeUltimateHero, to yell at the people of Earth before they're willing to help since Mr. Satan, not Goku, is known as the world's savior.

** Usopp is one of the very few members of the Straw Hats that [[TheTeamNormal doesn't have Devil Fruits or impossible physical abilities]], which results in him getting an inferiority complex and sees himself as worthless and not useful on the crew. He misinterprets Luffy's decision to buy another ship to replace the broken Merry as Luffy and the others being quick to abandon comrades who aren't any use to them.[[It's further complicated in that at that point Merry WAS alive, gaining a spirit of its own due to how much the crew loved her. Usopp kept it a secret from the others, possibly justified because even in a crazy place like One Piece such a thing would probably be unbelievable and the others might rightfully assume that he's lying to protect the ship.]]
