** Aku in general is a deconstruction of MadeOfEvil: He's completely incapable of doing anything good, even when it would benefit him. There's multiple times in the series where he probably would have succeeded in killing Jack if he didn't have ChronicBackstabbingDisorder.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'''s [[DarkerAndEdgier fifth season]] tears apart the notion of StatusQuoIsGod that dominated the previous seasons. After 50 long years, both the hero and villain have grown sick of their never-ending conflict; with Jack becoming a ShellShockedVeteran and Aku falling into depression, after years of mutual failure to kill one another.

* ''ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' pretty much thrives on deconstructing every one of the Scooby-Doo franchise's most iconic tropes.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''s fifth season tears apart the notion of StatusQuoIsGod. After fifty years both the hero and villain have grown sick of their never ending battle. Jack has become a ShellShockedVeteran and is slowly going mad after decades of failure. While Aku has fallen into depression, having grown tired of the OrcusOnHisThrone routine and exhausted everything trying to kill Jack with no success.

'''Mayor:''' NO! Do you realize the two crooks that you caught stole approximately four hundred dollars? Do you realize that you did ''over three '''MILLION''' dollars in property damage to that bridge?!'' '''IT'S NOT REPLACEABLE!'''

** It also gives us Helga Pataki herself as a deconstruction of the {{Tsundere}} trope. She's got a relationship with Arnold that looks on the surface like the typical foundations of a SlapSlapKiss romance, but as we delve a bit farther into her family life we see that, along with her traumatized PuritySue sister, she has an abusive {{Jerkass}} dad and a LadyDrunk mother, neither of which can provide much support in her daily life -- if she's lucky. Looking at the show with slightly more jaded eyes, her volatile relationship with Arnold and her few friends become an increasingly obvious cry for help and an awkwardness with dealing with people nonviolently.

** The infamous episode "The Boys of Bummer" is a brutal deconstruction of DisproportionateRetribution. The stock plot is about everyone in Springfield getting angry at Bart over something very minor, which has happened before on "Bart's Girlfriend," "The Telltale Head," and "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace" -- all of which were played straight and for laughs. This time around, Bart loses a simple softball game and is bullied and harassed for it so much and so badly that he attempts suicide. He lives, but the townspeople ''still'' rag on him for losing until Marge steps in to yell at them. It's about as dark and depressing as you'd imagine and the reason why this episode is disliked among the few people who still watch modern-day ''Simpsons'' episodes or the former fan who foolishly decided to rewatch the show after years of ignoring it.

* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' gives us a twofer. On one hand, he deconstructs the TuxedoAndMartini trope by showing us the kind of person that it would take to make a living out of killing people while [[BondOneLiner cracking one-liners]], bedding [[GirlOfTheWeek a different woman every week]] and obsessing over [[BadassInANiceSuit finding the perfect wardrobe]] in RealLife--namely, a self-centered, spoiled, borderline sociopathic ManChild...and the ultimate UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist. Then the show turns around and deconstructs the UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist trope by going in-depth in showing us the kind of [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood screwed-up childhood]] that it would take to make someone as much of an asshole as Archer.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'' deconstructed ShesAllGrownUp. The Prince and the Princess were reluctant to have their marriage arranged since they were kids. They meet each other again as young adults and the Prince immediately consents to the marriage after seeing how beautiful the Princess had become. She is instead offended because he can't come up with a reason to marry her besides her beauty. Unfortunately, it's played straight afterwards for no given reason.
