* ''Anime/HugttoPrettyCure'' deconstructs JackofAllStats as Cure Yell, compared to her teammates is so amazingly baseline as both her civilian self Hana and her Cure self, that she ends up being so depressed she loses the power to transform temporarily.

*** CantCatchUp: Because of how stupidly powerful Goku and Vegeta have become, many of the warriors have opted to slack off and take a mentality of "We'll just wait until Goku and/or Vegeta shows up and kicks their ass." This hurts them big time once Frieza returns for the ''Resurrection [='F'=]'' storyline, especially with Gohan, who foregone training to take care of his family. When Piccolo is killed at the hands of a sadistic Frieza, it's because Gohan could barely breach Super Saiyan. Once Piccolo's revived, Gohan asks Piccolo to retrain him.

In the Future Trunks Saga, when Trunks learns that Vegeta and Goku have obtained Super Saiyan Blue, he lets his guard down and decides that everything will be okay because they're there. However, Vegeta gives him a WhatTheHellHero over this, telling him that they're not always going tob e there.
** ThePowerOfLove: During the Universe Survival Arc, we're introduced to Universe 2, whose entire stick ''is'' this trope, especially with its big heroines, the Kamikaze Fireballs/Maiden Squadron and its leader Ribrianne. However, as the fight goes on, we learn that Ribrianne's views of love is terribly skewed and hypocritical as Ribrianne believes that [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil Cannot Comprehend Love]]. This is exemplified when Ribrianne is grossed out at the fact that Android 18 and Krillin start acting mushy around each other and can't comprehend why 18 would like someone like him. This is what ultimately defeats her.

** BadassInDistress was deconstructed ''hard'' with [[spoiler:Portgas D. Ace.]] The moment this badass was rescued after a long time as a DistressedDude, he fought alongside his savior [[spoiler:Luffy]] awesomely... and all of a sudden, [[spoiler:he died protecting him from the enemy, sending the poor dude into an HeroicBSOD.]]
** From the above, the Whitebeard War Saga deconstructs Luffy's {{Determinator}} traits. To save [[spoiler:Ace]], he has to go to the deepest level of [[TheAlcatraz Impel Down]], and he gets heavily poisoned by the Chief Warden Magellan in the way, and even though his determination helped him to heal himself faster than normal when he got some healing hormones from Ivankov, he got some [[CastFromLifespan lifespan loss]] from doing so. And then Luffy and company have to go ''back upwards again'' because [[spoiler:Ace]] has been taken to Marineford for execution. And it doesn't stop there - fast forward when [[spoiler:he finally saved Ace, Admiral Akainu kills him. As mentioned, Luffy has an epic HeroicBSOD that lasts for about a week.]]



** 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.[[spoiler: 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.]]

** The badass in general. Yes, Guts would drink molten lead when sufficiently thirsty, can mow down entire armies of {{Mooks}} with ease and is capable of winning battles against huge demons that could rip open a tank, but he only became like this because he lived trough a lifetime of horrors and has been walking the razors edge of survival even before he was properly born. It is very obvious that Guts would have been a somewhat brash but mostly average guy if he had led a normal life instead of suffering trough [[TrainingFromHell what he got]]. You DO NOT want to be him, but you will respect him even more.

** Iok Kujan deconstructs the TheRoyalsWhoDoSomething trope where in spite, Iok while a competent pilot of Gjallarhorn goes out of his depth on several occasions in order to bring the cold war to an end with [=McGillis=] and Arianhod. Iok's actions often ended up being mutually destructive throughout the series as his rash actions gets more people around him killed and in trouble ranging from awakening an mobile armor that kills his men and a bunch of civilians. Using a forbidden weapon to kill Naze and the Turbines to gain Jasley's support and goad Tekkadan only to end up being suspended from active duty and ultimately dying in what would be a massacre when he decides to personally deliver the killing blow to Akihiro who already had lost everything dear to him.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' deconstructs a lot of AU's tropes in general.
** The ChildSoldier stereotype portrayed by Heero and Setsuna is brutally deconstructed with Mika. Adept at killing with either a gun or mobile suit, Mika proves himself to be Tekkadan's greatest asset. However, his blind devotion to Orga's cause like how Heero was to his mission and Setsuna's to Celestial Being's cause to eradicate conflict proves to much more important that any. As a result he never recovers either mentally or physically from his actions, losing more and more of his limbs outside of combat and ultimately confined to the Barbatos Gundam towards the end of the series and ultimately dying in it.
** The SuperPrototype Bael was supposed to be the legendary Gundam that would cement McGillis' authority as the ruler of Gjallarhorn. Throughout the series, people were led to believe it had secret abilities due it being piloted by Gjallarhorn's founder Agnika Kaeru. In the end it was nothing special except the first Gundam that was built.

** [[spoiler: Though this assumption was right to a certain degree since as Gremmy said he imagined himself having all Kenpachi's powers, when Kenpachi does actually gets access to them by using his Bankai, his right arm is eventually torn apart due to his body being unable to handle so much power.]]
