** The ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' storyline deconstructs the AntiHeroSubsitute. After Batman is broken by Bane, Bruce appoints [[ComicBook/{{Azrael}} Jean-Paul Valley]] to be Batman. However, the System kicks in and Jean-Paul finds himself lost in the brainwashing, being driven slowly insane in a war of ideologies before ultimately slipping back into his Azrael persona and decided to just try to kill criminals, forcing Bruce to take back the mantle.

** The ''Batman'' comics arguably deconstruct ThouShaltNotKill and IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim. Batman repeatedly refuses to kill ''anyone'', and even goes so far as to SaveTheVillain whenever possible. This even extends to [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker the Joker]], despite knowing that the Joker is evil and AxCrazy beyond any hope of redemption, and Batman's repeated refusal to kill him only allows the Joker to continue killing people, especially since the Joker ''loves'' committing such atrocities merely for the sake of rubbing them in Batman's face.

** Pyrrha, Jaune's partner and {{Foil}}, deconstructs AttractivenessIsolation and TheAce. Because she is incredibly talented, pretty and skilled, she is put on a pedestal, constantly treated like a celebrity and she finds it hard to develop a relationship with anyone because no one would talk to her. In addition, she may have made a mistake when not allowing [[spoiler:Jaune to accompany her in her final fight against Cinder. While this was to protect him, she did not take into account how he could have helped her out, such as when she had Cinder in a choke hold and vulnerable to attack.]]

** Blake's ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies is deconstructed in the episode "Taking Control" when Sun [[WhatTheHellHero calls out Blake]] on her decision to "protect" her friends by running away constantly. While she might think she is being "selfless" in getting as much distance as possible between her, her friends, and the danger she thinks she's putting them in by being around them, she's instead hurting them by running away.

* ''DiveQuest'', from the guy behind ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'', deconstructs the usual structure of Collective Games by having the "players" exist in universe, as facets of the protagonists personality, accessed through the Orb of Infinite Psyche. This proved so popular that it's been used in several other games. It also provided justification for switching the player character by having the second character find a shard of the orb.

* Franchise/{{Batman}}'s PapaWolf and his BerserkButton of "killing a couple in front of their son" was deconstructed in "Broken City" when pursuing a criminal who had shot and killed a couple, leaving the boy in a state of shock. Batman naturally is bent to get the criminal. [[spoiler: It turns out the guy he was chasing never really had it in him to shoot a gun, and ''the boy'' had shot and killed his parents while the criminal was just nearby. Batman's BerserkButton made him chase after the wrong person.]]

* Many of the songs written by Serge Gainsbourg for the 60's French pop star France Gall were deconstructions of common themes in pop music and its role at the time in everyday life. The most well-known example is probably ''Poupée de cire, Poupée de son'', winner of the EurovisionSongContest of 1965, which deconstructs the idea of a star too young to actually understand love singing SillyLoveSongs for cash that younger kids will believe.

** The BluesTraveler song "Hook" followed the same model with pop songs, to the extent that they used PachelbelsCanonProgression for the bridge. Few noticed at the time, though.
