* ''Franchise/FireEmblem''
** ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' deconstructs a ''lot'' of common character archetypes throughout the series, also Deconstructing several interventionist policies and showing just how damaging they can be - all before capping it off with [[spoiler: the heroes being incinerated by the BigBad.]] [[HolyShitQuotient Yikes.]]
** ''FireEmblemFates'' has a few deconstructions to boot, at least one per route:
*** In ''Birthright'', it Deconstructs the idea of BlackAndWhiteMorality. Yes, Nohr is the belligerents and Hoshido is on the defense, but it goes to show what that mentality can do when [[HeWhoFightsMonsters taken too far.]] Notably, [[spoiler: your eldest adoptive brother committing SuicideByCop after your adoptive little sister dies, alongside countless of lost lives as a result of abandoning Nohr.]]
*** In ''Conquest,'' it Deconstructs the MyCountryRightOrWrong and PacifistRun tropes, showing that the former can lead to some ''very'' mentally straining events and the latter, while possible, ultimately proves to be far too much trouble than it's worth.

* ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' deconstructs the cavalier cowboy attitude of jingoistic military shooters by showing the catastrophic destruction and death that result from them, and the nationalist propaganda that fuels it.

* Despite being considered the TropeCodifier although jingoistic military shooters exist before it, ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' deconstructs the cavalier cowboy attitude of jingoistic military shooters and movies by showing the catastrophic destruction and death that result from them, and the nationalist propaganda that fuels it.

* ''FanFic/ABrighterDark'' By ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/3371139/DeathDealer-Inc DeathDealer Inc]]'', a ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' retelling, that alters a few characters (and entire countries') personalities to what they would logically be in that setting and then shows how events would play out in that setting.

Without the presence and influence of the third kingdom Valla either. Nohr suffers from famine and starvation, with Garon's every decision being a SadisticChoice. Invading Hoshido out of pure desperation. Hoshido meanwhile is fabulously wealthy, and a fantastic place to live, as long as you're Hoshidan. Combat is also a lot more graphic with CombatPragmatism and dismemberment being common place.

** The White Fang are the center of the FantasticalRacism conflict in the show involving Fanaus, at first thought of revolutionists fighting against racism for equality...[[spoiler: Except that as the series goes on, it's made clear that the conflict is anything but BlackAndWhiteMorality. The White Fang are constantly going to extreme degrees to the point that, at their most positive, they're WellIntentionedExtremists . Likewise, some people have understandable motives behind their racism (Such as Weiss who disliked Fanaus because the only Fanaus she ever knew where the White Fang, who killed her friends and family and made her home life a living hell.) It's also shown, in disturbingly close TruthInTelevision fashion, that not everyone in the White Fang have good intentions (As is the case with Adam Taurus, a high ranking member who wants to kill every human he can find) and that such extremism leads to them being ostracized by their peers (a Fanaus who has no ties to teh White Fang actively dislikes the group, equating them to a cult.)]]

** The BigBad [[spoiler:Lusamine deconstructs trainer themself. Claiming to love all pokemon and want to collect them all, just like the trainer. While treating them(as well as people) as little more than objects. Ignoring that which she does not find appealing and discarding ones that are no longer of use to her. Even keeping cryogenically frozen pokemon on display, asking how its any different from the player keeping their unused ones in a box. When a new and unknown pokemon, the ultrabeasts appear, she wants them for herself, just like the player does.]]

* ''[[{{Walkyverse}} It's Walky]]'' could arguably be seen as a deconstruction of the goofy 1980s cartoons creator David Willis is a fan of (mostly ''GIJoe'' and ''{{Transformers}}''). Sure it features a unique special forces group, SEMME (who were initially based on GI Joe) with an eccentric line up of operatives, who routinely foil the insane schemes of a HarmlessVillain, but the eccentric operatives are soon revealed to be a bunch of dysfunctional screw-ups, and the Villain is in fact a NotSoHarmlessVillain.

** The whole series deconstructs the HeroicComedicSociopath from ''Touhou'' (which ''Len'en'' is based off). Many of the playable characters are acknowledged not to be the most virtuous people around, and fighting the villain of the day is often done for purely selfish reasons. While some ''Touhou'' games becoming DarkerAndEdgier (such as ''Subterranean Animism'' and ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'', the heroines do not face any consequences for their actions, unlike ''Len'en'''s case.
* One of the core themes of the ''Franchise/{{Drakengard}}'' series is according to series [[WordOfGod creator]] Creator/TaroYoko are the simple words "Why do you kill?". This in turn often lead to deconstructions of the OneManArmy and Heroism tropes as well as the exploration to why a human being would kill hundreds if not thousands of people. This trait has since become a halmark of Yoko's style.

* This is the ''entire point'' of the ''Franchise/TalesSeries''. The modus operandi for the series is to write up the world's biggest ClicheStorm and then rip it to shreds: analysing in brutal detail why every single chapter of the fantasy book has the potential to be terrifying. [[CrapsaccharineWorld The cutesy graphics]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar mean they get away with a]] ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar shitload]]'' [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar of stuff]] that many other, more [[AnimationAgeGhetto "mature"-looking]] RPG's wouldn't be able to.
