Namespacing The Joker
** The New Batman admits that TheJoker is a successful supervillain, but a pathetic comedian: he never made Batmanís laugh, nor corrupt or break him. He never was AffablyEvil, just FauxAffablyEvil. And maybe the clearer proof that TheJoker is a mediocre comic is that he cannot deal with the natural enemy of a comedian: ''TheHeckler''.

** Harley Quinn deconstructs the PerkyFemaleMinion into CuteAndPsycho after helping the Joker torture Robin, showing us that she was just another psychopath. Batgirl conveniently forgets that the only one of Jokerís potential victims Harley defended in the series was [[HoYay Poison Ivy]] and Arkhan Asylum's inmates. Harley was perfectly okay with TheJoker torturing and killing [[LongList Harvey Bullock, Charlie Collins, Sid the Squid, Carl Francis, Thomas Jackson, Batgirl's own father, Commissioner Gordon, etc...]]:

** TheCowl is deconstructed because Batman is so completely dedicated to his mission, the Batfamily members and Harley [[GrowingUpSucks want to grow up, have families, much more of life that playing an infinite]] CycleOfRevenge and let him LonelyAtTheTop. The disturbing conclusion is that the only relationship that ever worked for Batman was the FoeRomanceSubtext he had with SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. As we see at the page quote, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker was truly special for Batman: He was the only one capable of accepting Batman as the {{Determinator}}.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'': The final season deconstructs HiddenAgendaVillain with Gorilla Grodd, who assembles the supervillains of the DCAU into an effective coalition and gathers resources for his EvilPlan, [[spoiler:which is to turn all people on Earth into gorillas.]] SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor points out the silliness in such plan, and no one in the Secret Society bats an eyelash when Lex shoots Grodd in the face and usurps leadership.

** "The Cutie Remark Parts 1 and 2" deconstructs DudeWheresMyRespect heavily: Starlight Glimmer thinks the Mane Six is nothing more than a bunch of ponies who were brought together thanks to one Sonic Rainboom. When Twilight drags Starlight into one of the many changed timelines, she's shown that, without that Rainboom, they weren't brought together and ''bad shit'' happened. Starlight just can't get it wrapped around her head that the Mane Six are essentially the only thing standing between peaceful Equestria and a barren wasteland that she suffers a VillainousBreakdown.

** [[FreeRangeChildren A group of kids]] are able to travel around the world because, with a few exceptions, their parents are either dead or busy fighting a war. Many episodes discuss and show the toll this takes on them.

** "A Very Crappy Christmas" deconstructs TrueMeaningOfChristmas by having the town view Christmas as what most cartoon teach Christmas is all about (family, love, and kindness to others) which makes no one buy Christmas presents and as a result the town's economy plummets.

** "The Helper" shows that not only is Wander incapable of finishing a task of his own before helping someone else, his ChronicHeroSyndrome is so bad that a day where there isn't ''any'' problem he can help with drives him bonkers.

to:
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' ** Similar to the Korra example above, LoveAtFirstSight is taken apart, with the possibility of LovingAShadow brought up. As shown in "We Need To Talk", Greg and Rose hooking up within hours of meeting at the end of "Story For Steven" causes some problems due to the speed of the relationship, which isn't helped by the fact that it's an InterspeciesRomance and the fact that humans and Gems have different understandings of relationships. In "Love Letters", not only does Garnet shoot down Jamie's one sided crush on her (which also shows that a crush is under no obligation to reciprocate feelings) she explicitly says that love at first sight doesn't exist. Even Steven and Connie's burgeoning relationship, with them developing a mutual crush quickly, is taking its time to get to a full RelationshipUpgrade as they become closer gradually. ** "Sworn To The Sword" deconstructs Pearl's UndyingLoyalty to Rose Quartz, which led to Pearl jumping into battle to protect Rose without any concern for her safety, and despite her Gem regeneration meaning she could heal from that, she was implied to have frequently argued with Rose about doing so, especially when there was no reason to. She then tries to instill this way of thinking into Connie, who cannot regenerate like she can, even telling her that she doesn't matter as long as Steven is safe. Steven himself has a opposition to this similar to what Rose was implied to have, and in the end the two are able to find a balance by protecting each other. ** Lapis Lazuli's situation deconstructs SentientPhlebotinum pretty harshly, having spent millenia in an AndIMustScream type fate, only interacting with others when they want something, which has left her a BrokenBird.

* Main/SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' eventually deconstructed LoveAtFirstSight. Korra, Bolin, Asami and Mako all fall in love with other Team Avatar members at first sight...and none of those relationships worked out. Bolin's infatuation with Korra was one-sided, Mako and Asami's relationship imploded due to Mako's poor decision-making and lack of social skills, and Mako and Korra ultimately broke up due to their conflicting loyalties and personality clashes, with all of them ultimately being BetterAsFriends. The relationships that last till the end of the series are the ones that grew naturally from a pre-existing, long-time friendship ([[BiTheWay Asami and Korra]]) or featuring people actively working to maintain and strengthen the relationship ([[BetaCouple Bolin and Opal]]).
