* ''Geiger Counter'' deconstructs rape hentai by showing the consequences it has on the victim. Most doujin of the same genre simply ends after the act itself, but Geiger Counter actually shows the consequences of the rape: the victim girl is traumatized, even the [[TraumaButton sound of door bell]] terrifies her, and her family is forced to move. That [[EmptyEyes empty look in her eyes]] makes it very clear that you are NOT supposed to be getting off on this.

* ''Bondage Game OVA'' is a deconstruction of extreme fetish hentai, even though it's only two episodes long. The sex slaves shown in it have personalities, and aren't just flat characters like most women in hentai are. Also, the reactions of the girls when experiencing their torture make it clear that you're not supposed to be getting off to it. The anime ends when [[spoiler:the man who owns the sex slaves gets arrested, and the girls that survived are freed.]] If it was meant for fetish fulfillment, then the ending would be much worse.

** Changed the mecha from an unfeeling mechanoid with unlimited energy that is easily repaired to a biological entity that bleeds, feels pain, needs an extension cord for power, and may even have a personality.[[note]]The Jet Alone episode illustrates that said unfeeling mechanoid with unlimited energy wouldn't actually be as useful as it's typically portrayed as in most mecha shows since it can be easily sabotaged by rival factions, would be surrounded by bureaucracy that makes it next to impossible to get anything done in a crisis, and its vaunted unlimited energy source can be just as much of a danger as the creatures the mecha was created to combat. Plus a simple mechanoid wouldn't have the abilities required to fight creatures with powers that border on reality warping.[[/note]]

--> '''Subaru''': Before I got into the situation that led me to all of you, do you have any idea what I did? I did nothing. I've never done a single thing. I had all that time, all that freedom... I could have done ''anything'', but I never did a ''thing!'' And this is the result! What I am now is the result! All of my powerlessness, all of my incompetence, is the product of my rotten character. That's right. I have no character. Even when I thought I could live here, nothing changed. At heart, I'm just a small, cowardly, filthy piece of trash, who's always worried about how others see me. And nothing... '''Nothing about me has changed!''' ...I absolutely hate myself...

**It is to note though that being TrappedInAnotherWorld, getting superpowers there and becoming a famous hero etc. is just as realistic as being TrappedInAnotherWorld and none of it happening: None at all.

** Many harem shows tend to take the route of the UnwantedHarem, with the male lead being [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent an average guy]] [[UnluckyEverydude who despite his bad luck]], ends up gaining the affection of multiple girls due to being a NiceGuy, yet either remains [[ObliviousToLove oblivious to their advances]] or is [[CelibateHero unable to reciprocate]], usually because [[FirstGirlWins he is already in love with one specific girl]] and doesn’t want to hurt the feelings of the other girls. Makoto seems like the average protagonist of this kind of stories at first, but as mentioned above [[{{Jerkass}} he is NOT one]]. The plot shows how in reality not every male teen is as noble as the average harem series protagonist. Some hormone driven young men in such position would actually take advantage of the situation, sometimes even acting cruelly and misleadingly towards the girls in order to satisfy their own pleasure.

* ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' somewhat lightheartly deconstructs Mecha and especially Yamato. As shown in the first arc alone just because you have an advance state of the art ship with the latest in hardware and the best, yet quirky crew, doesn't mean you can OneManArmy an army that's nearly limitless and GenreSaavy about the flaws of said ship, the young Captain isn't emotionally prepared to handle SadisticChoice, the Fanboy HotShotPilot gets killed in a mutiny in an non-heroic manner, the other HotShotPilot is an emotional wreck who wants to be a cook AND has made a very unhealthy LoveTriangle. Oh and a colony blew up, so nearly two weeks of nothing to do but handling the funerals of the THOUSANDS of people on board, and the crew nearly mutiny because their contracts don't allow them to pork. And to top it all off they failed in their mission and are only alive by SHEER LUCK. It only gets worse from there, [[spoiler: Especially when the true nature of the Jovians is revealed.]]

* ''LightNovel/HaiToGensouNoGrimgar'' deconstructs the TrappedInAnotherWorld AKA "Isekai" stories. Grimgar's spin is if people who are ''NOT'' gamers get sent to such a planet, and fail to grasp mechanics quickly enough to avoid unnecessary death, they do NOT become ace combatants or charismatic figureheads. It frames heroes like [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Kirito]], [[Overlord2012 Momonga]], and [[LightNovel/LogHorizon Shiroe]] having it significantly easier because [[GenreSavvy they know]] what they're getting into, as opposed to people who never played (or remember playing) these sort of games.

* ''LightNovel/ReZero'', if anything, goes '''even further''' than ''LightNovel/HaiToGensouNoGrimgar'', by showing how being sent to another world could truly suck. The main character, Subaru, thinks that because he was sent to another world, he autmomatically gained awesome powers. He did, but not what he thinks, as when he is killed in the first episode, he realizes that he was merely sent back to a "checkpoint" of sorts, and feels the pain of every death, and it slowly starts to wear away on his mind. It's taken further later on, starting in arc 3, where his lack of social skills as a NEET from our world screws him over big time, as he ruins Emilia's chance at succeeding the throne, almost gets killed by one of the knights of the other princess candidates, and then shows what he really thinks, thinking that just like the main protagonists of light novels, he is entitled to protect her because of what he has gone through, only for her to rebuke him.

* Note: ReZero is still not a deconstruction of the entire getting trapped into an alternative world.
