* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' deconstructs KnightTemplar by making the religious zealot paladin almost completely incapable of accepting that she could be wrong, believing herself and her every action to be the work of the gods [[spoiler:even after she [[FallenHero loses her paladin powers]]. The god practically ''told'' her "No, what you're doing is wrong, get out!" and she still believes herself to be in their favour.]] It also explores the concept of AlwaysChaoticEvil in the case of Redcloak.

** GenreSavvy is deconstructed with Tarquin. He sees everyone as nothing but plot devices [[spoiler:to the point that when he murders his own son Nale he considers it nothing more than the removal of a useless B-villain that Elan has outgrown.]]
*** [[spoiler:[[WordOfGod Rich Burlew]] goes one step further by revealing [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=318550&page=4 in the forum]] that being GenreSavvy and a capable fighter are Tarquin's only real talents. He is not the experienced military leader everyone thought he was and his teammates find his genre savviness annoying and treat him in the same way the Order of the Stick treats Elan. If anything, Tarquin comes off as a huge TakeThat against Genre Savvy villains.]]

** It also deconstructs TrappedInAnotherWorld. More like the other world cultivates the players and their parental figures/role models, sends them off to another planet, then starts throwing meteors at the planet once the players have hit puberty. Winning the game is pretty much the only way they can go back to some semblance of a normal, happy life. [[spoiler: And the trolls don't even get that.]]

** Belkar deconstructs the TokenEvilTeammate. While his [[CardCarryingVillain gleefully evil ways]] were initially played for laughs, lately they've proven to have realistic consequences, both on the world in general and his relationship with the rest of the party.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' deconstructs the InteractiveComic trope itself. The readers suggesting commands are not abstractions and are very real and powerful beings of an unknown nature according to WordOfGod. After so many people tell Fern to [[CrackPairing seduce Harmburger]], for example, it actually happens very briefly against her will

** [[spoiler: More ingenious yet, one of the Doctor's original clones, that actually had his intelligence, did this, invoking the law, and killing all the stupid clones. THE REAL Doctor McNinja invoked this law by staying hidden all the time, so that after his farmer-clone and Franz finished off the rest, he was the most über ninja present. SHAZAM.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WebComic/{{SSDD}} deconstructs a number of sex tropes, such as:
** {{Polyamory}}: The relationship between Richard, Red, and Anne falls apart in a hurry
** BiggerIsBetterInBed: Richard is so well-hung that Anne has to be careful when she has sex with him.
** TheCasanova: [[http://www.poisonedminds.com/d/20160210.html Richard enjoys his conquests less and less]].

** Oasis is a deconstruction of the MagicalGirlfriend. If you chose the right elements, you could describe her in a way that sounded exactly like, say, ''SteelAngelKurumi''. Basically, she's a gorgeous, super-human killer accidentally brainwashed to be "in love" with Torg. She's both a very tragic and intentionally shallow character, and a major threat to the protagonists as well as the main reason Torg can't be together with someone he really loves.

* Dora Bianchi of ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is a Deconstruction of the EthicalSlut. She's pansexual and open-minded about all kinds of practices...because her crippling insecurities and trust issues, stemming from a long string of past relationships marked by infidelity and mistreatment, prevent her from having any kind of long-term meaningful relationships. The merest hint of her current romantic partner getting any kind of attention from another person, or the merest possibility of being cheated on, will cause her to explode, and either end the relationship or start pre-emptively mistreating her partner to the point where they end it. It gets so bad at one point that one of her friends advises her to seek professional help...which ''does'' seem to be having a positive effect.

She's pansexual and open-minded about all kinds of practices...because her crippling varied insecurities and trust issues, stemming from a long string of past relationships marked by infidelity and mistreatment, prevent her from having any kind of long-term meaningful relationships.relationships. Having grown up in the shadow of her BrilliantButLazy brother, she has a serious inferiority complex and crippling trust issues, which she hides by putting on a tough-as-nails front. She will cut friends and loved ones out of her life with very little provocation, and will hold a grudge for much longer than is healthy. The merest hint of her current romantic partner getting any kind of attention from another person, or the merest possibility of being cheated on, will cause her to explode, and either end the relationship or start pre-emptively mistreating her partner to the point where they end it.
