** There is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99_upx8URLI an interview with {{Creator/PennAndTeller}}]] where they explain how their entire act is a DeconReconSwitch. They always make sure the audience knows they're just pulling tricks, that it's all fakery and sleight of hand and that there is no magical element to it; yet their goal is to still always fool the audience and make them wonder how the hell the trick could have been done. Teller refers to it as the unwilling suspension of disbelief.

* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'': The movie starts out with Captain Kirk [[WhatTheHellHero getting utterly reamed by Admiral Pike]] for his ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight methods and demoted all the way back to Cadet. By the time the movie is over, he's back in command of the ''Enterprise'' and those same methods led to the villains' plots being foiled.

** The City Watch series began partly as a deconstruction of the FilmNoir genre- where the gritty AntiHero detective is suave and mysterious for his checkered past, but just a miserable, washed up alcoholic. Then, over the course of the novels, Vimes eventually manages to overcome many of his faults and become a powerful, happily married HardboiledDetective.

Fleshed out a Zero Context Example.

* ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' did this to the mystery genre.genre by both showing the realistic consequences of an AmateurSleuth acting like he's a HardboiledDetective when the bad guys have no patience for games, but at the same time structuring the plot to mirror that of the old MysteryFiction books the characters [[DiscussedTrope themselves keep referencing]].

* ComicBook/KingdomCome deconstructs UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks and at the same time reconstructs the SilverAge. [[spoiler: In the ending, though, both the Silver Age ''and'' Dark Age heroes realize they're fatally flawed in their world views, take off their masks, and rejoin normal human society.]]

* Similarly to the ''Gurren Lagann'' example above (fitting, since many of the same people created both), ''Anime/KillLaKill'' starts off as a clear AffectionateParody of both hot-blooded shonen and magical girl anime, [[LampshadeHanging hanging lampshades]] on all of the well-worn tropes and generally maintaining its sense of humor above all else. Then [[spoiler: Nui reveals that she killed Ryuko's father and starts screwing her over in every conceivable way]], and the story becomes more fast-paced and serious, [[{{Reconstruction}} bringing back all of the tropes it lightly mocked]] and clearly showing why these stories are so beloved.
