** The historical criminal 20 Gyarados Bill deconstructs the MagikarpPower trope by having a villain realize he can take the cruddy fish found everyone there is water and make them badass. He does so, and uses them to go on a villainous rampage instead, for after all it is not just heroes capable of taking the slow path to greatness.
** The PathOfMostResistance trope is also deconstructed: while the main story and the Astrid oneshot show that trainers like Ash and the OC Vermell can use this trope to truly prepare themselves for basically anything, the Cipher oneshot introduces the readers to a rookie trainer named Shawn who tries the same thing, by taking on the ''Orre'' region of all places. Because he wasn't truly prepared to handle such a tough path, he ends up with no money and [[TrappedInVillainy forced to join a criminal organization to survive.]]
** SexGod is also given a beating in Chapter 27. Anna notes that the lover she had who sired Arnold is by far the most sexually pleasing lover she ever had, but she notes that the physical pleasure involved was missing something. She notes that two later lovers, who were no where near as good as he was, had it. Basically the point there is just being a excellent lover physically can't match lower quality love making where genuine affection and care are in play. Notably Reset is a Harem Fic, where characters capable of immense physical love to every XX chromosomed being the writer likes is common place and often exists in place of non-sexual romantic connections.

** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4881840/16/We_Are We Are]]'' deconstructs the {{Fanon}} idea of a "clan reconstruction" law allowing the last member of a clan to have multiple wives (generally used to invoke the OneTrueThreesome) by carrying out the idea of a "clan reconstruction" plan to its logical conclusion. The person invoking it is placed under house arrest until they produce at least two grandchildren (to ensure that the clan doesn't end with them), and are forbidden to get in fights to avoid risking death. Spouses are chosen for them based not on their own romantic or sexual desires, but on genetic compatibility to ensure maximization of offspring production.

** ''[[FanFic/TheNuptialverse Post Nuptials]]'' takes a ''much'' closer look at the subplot in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 A Canterlot]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 Wedding]]" in which Twilight is MadeOutToBeAJerkass by her friends for accusing Princess Cadance of being evil, only to be proven right later. Here, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Twilight's friends harbor tremendous guilt for how harshly they easily condemned her]]. They only feel worse when Twilight [[EasilyForgiven easily forgives them for it]] because then it makes them think she is too good to be their friend. Twilight, meanwhile, [[spoiler: actually feels [[EtTuBrute hurt and betrayed]] about what happened, but also blames herself for not gathering evidence or privately sharing her suspicions with [[BigGood Princess Celestia]] before throwing out barely sound accusations. As a result, she's [[StepfordSmiler simply pretending to instantly forgive everybody in order to avoid thinking about what could have happened if she turned out to be wrong]]. Twilight only truly starts to forgive her friends when she finally admits her anger and [[WhatTheHellHero chews them out over how they treated her]]. A minor sub-plot of the sequel focuses on Twilight learning how to trust her friends again]].

** ''Fanfic/EquestriaCivilWar'' deconstructs the controversial ending of the season five finale, where Twilight Sparkle [[EasilyForgiven esoterically forgave Starlight Glimmer for everything she had done and took her on as a student]]. First of all, pardoning Starlight for her crimes (which include forcibly removing poniesí cutie marks for her cult, brainwashed dissenters, and then once Twilight and company exposed her as a hypocrite, [[EvilIsPetty she stole a time spell and CREATED SEVERAL DYSTOPIAN FUTURES OUT OF PETTY REVENGE]]) does '''''NOT''''' change the fact that she had messed up so many lives. Second of all, just because Twilight was willing to forgive Starlight, [[RealityEnsues the ensuing controversy caused by it porves that it doesn't mean that anypony ELSE is willing to]]. Many ponies accuse Twilight of being [[StupidGood foolishly naive]] and many more believe that Starlight isn't actually remorseful for anything she did, she just took advantage of Twilight's percived naivity to [[KarmaHoudini escape punishment for her crimes]]. Even some of Twilight friends and allies (Applejack, Rarity, her sister-in-law Cadence, and even ''[[BigGood Princess Celestia]] herself'') have begun to worry that Twilight is becoming a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter, and there's a mysterious pony working behind the scenes to permanently discredit Starlight and throw her in jail. Third of all, crime rates have also increased since the event in question, because many criminals think that if Twilight, as one of the four princesses of Equestria, could easily forgive Starlight for her crimes, they would be EasilyForgiven and get let off the hook themselves. All of this culminates into the Reformed Antagonist Registration Act, headed by Moon Dancer and Thunderbolt, who believe that [[JerkassHasAPoint villains needed to be punished for their crime regardless of reformation]]. The two of them get a lot of public support because of how many believe that Twilight has become lenient.

** A very early example is Karen Osman's "Knight of Shadows" from 1982, discussed in Henry Jenkins ''TextualPoachersTelevisonFansAndParticapatoryCulture''. It traces the power struggle between Darth Vader and his bride Jessha's brother Koric for the Sith throne. Osman initially portrays Koric as a young idealist and suggests the compromises and betrayals he must make to gain power; he soon becomes a leader as ruthless as the one he seeks to displace. Similarly, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Jedi initially represent a morally superior force in their struggles with the Emperor, but Osman questions the psychomanipulation tactics Kenobi employs to ensure Darth's compliance to his demands, describing Obi-Wan as "an alien presence, controlling, manipulating". Her Kenobi is motivated less by a sense of justice and democracy than a desire to preserve the Jedi's autonomy and privilege. By the conclusion, the reader is uncertain how to feel about Darth's decision to align himself with the Emperor rather than the Jedi, even though that ambivalence stands in stark contrast to the moral certainty of the original films.

** A favorite trope in the fandom is bringing one of the other, older human characters (usually Alan, but also Lora or Roy) into {{Cyberspace}} where they meet the Program that they created, who looks like them and loves them like a deity. Usually there's a side of WhatTheHellHero in asking why Flynn kept it all secret. "The Contingency" has a really good argument. [[spoiler: Flynn did bring Lora over, but when Lora got a look at Yori, she assumed Flynn (her ex) had coded a digital twin of her to fulfill some adolescent fantasy, [[ThatThingIsNotMyChild rejected Yori outright]], and apparently deleted her from the system...followed by packing up and leaving for Washington DC so that she would never have to speak to Flynn again.]]
** That implied PsychicLink from the first movie and the rant that "our spirit remains in every program we design" gets taken to a very nasty, but plausible conclusion in Expositionfairy's Symbiosis series. Tron is transmitting cries for help and memories of being tortured [[spoiler: and ReforgedIntoAMinion]], and Alan (who has no idea about what's going on) almost dies from the strain.
** Endgame Scenario: That UndyingLoyalty Alan and Lora had for their lifes' work and their friend Kevin is heartwarming. Their dedication to their lives' work with the sciences and Encom is admirable. Their bi-coastal marriage is also pretty remarkable. So is their willingness to take on raising Sam so that he can grow up to take the proverbial throne...too bad their own son got lost in the shuffle, ending up with maybe enough self-esteem to fill a bottle cap.
