* In ''{{Undergrads}}'', college dorm life is deconstructed to counter its inspiration ''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.

** "Fare Tonight" deconstructs the KidHero trope popularized by ''Film/HomeAlone'', as the kids in question, while able to talk big about killing vampires, end up being about as prepared to fight an actual vampire as kids with no professional training whatsoever would be in real life. [[spoiler: They only win by pure luck at the end.]]

* The ''JimmyNeutron'' [[TheMovie movie]] deconstructs the [[ThereAreNoAdults "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.
