** "All The Gory Details" deconstructs the tropes made by ''Film/Franknestein1931''. The Mad Scientist? [[spoiler: Was trying to ''protect'' his creations]]. Said creations? [[spoiler: Just want to be left alone, and only attack the heroes to destroy the evidence of their existence.]] It also deconstructs the idea of the HardboiledDetective with Harold Klump, who embodies every negative trait involved with the trope and twists every positive trait into a negative. His determination? Keeps him from getting anywhere and [[spoiler: gets him changed into one of Kromwell's creations at the end.]] His snarkiness and general misogyny? [[spoiler: Alienates him from his partner, who ends up leaving after having enough of his abuse.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' is a deconstruction of the whole Autobot-Decepticon War. Things ain't so [[BlackAndWhiteMorality black and white]] as before, in fact the Autobots' leadership is flawed and somewhat corrupt, with one higly racist, incompetent, cowardly jerkass general on it, who only is amongst the High Command because he blames his mistakes on Optimus Prime, whose status as AllLovingHero makes him somewhat of a push-over, and its leader is ready to commit dirty tricks to defeat the Decepticons. The Decepticons however, are as much the monsters they were in G1, and this time Megatron's pragmatic enough to blast [[TheStarscream Starscream's]] ass any time he tries to overthrow him. Starscream only survives thanks to the Allspark piece on his head. [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Without it he would have died right from the start]]. Also, because the Deceptions are war machines while Optimus' group are just maintenance bots, fending off just ''one'' Decepticon is a struggle that usually requires the entire team. Then comes the [[DarkerAndEdgier season]] [[AnyoneCanDie three]]...

* The ''JimmyNeutron'' [[TheMovie movie]] deconstructs the [[ThereAreNoAdults "having no parents would be great"]] trope by having difficulties pop up the very next day. A girl gets injured, everyone gets chronically lonely, and people get sick from eating nothing but bad food.

* In ''{{Undergrads}}'', college dorm life is deconstructed to counter its inspiration ''Film/AnimalHouse''; Rocko's [[WackyFratboyHijinx Fratboy behavior]] is looked down on heavily by his frat brothers, who view him as a source of grief. Nitz' everyman status really puts only a grade above [[ThisLoserIsYou Gimpy]], the resident {{Hikikomori}} of the 4 of them.

** At one point, Homer is about to drink a beaker of sulfuric acid when Grimes stops him. Grimes reacts ''exactly'' as we would expect a normal person to react -- he's visibly freaked out, and when Homer blows off the danger with laughter, he shouts, " ''Stop laughing,'' you imbecile! Do you realize how close you just came to killing yourself?!" A series of such incidents ultimately drives Frank Grimes into insanity [[spoiler:and death]].

* ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' offers an interesting take on the teenage superhero genre in the fact the hero really couldn't care any less about school or fitting in, claiming it's a waste of time and instead stating that his work as a hero is more important. He then proceeds to cheat on his tests and homework in order to pass, since him being a hero gives him the latitude to do so, and high school is meaningless and doesn't matter once you graduate, especially since he's already a)rich, and b)a genius inventor.
* "Epilogue" of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' can be taken as a deconstruction of the superhero genre by having a Amanda Waller deliberately try to engineer [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond another Batman]] in response to the original Batman growing older. It fits both invoked and deconstructed, because it shows the horrible consequences of making a superhero, as well as the kind of monster you would have to be to do it (killing innocent people to do something that might achieve a goal).
