** ''Fanfic/{{Anthropology}}'' does this to the common "[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Lyra]] is IntriguedByHumanity" genre. Her fascination with a creature which in this setting does not exist [[spoiler: anymore]], and her adopting of their habits- wearing clothes, sitting upright, ''growing hands''- are met with skepticism and confusion from her peers at ''best'', and outright anger and revulsion at worst, especially by her roommate Bon-Bon. Lyra herself starts to believe that the ignorance ponies have of humanity is all a big conspiracy, and that the government is spying on her.

** ''FanFic/{{Unfamiliar}}'' closely examines the dark implications of the abuse that Louise would often inflict on Saito. Louise and her group all travel to Mott's palace to rescue Siesta, and find that she wasn't the only commoner that was in his clutches. There were others that suffered so much abuse that many of them have been broken both physically and [[BreakTheCutie mentally]]. Mott doesn't even consider the commoners, out right calling them "dogs" and "bitches", showing that he went off the deep end long ago. Louise ends up being so horrified and disgusted with everything she's seen that she particularly sics her familiar, in this case being ''[[VideoGame/{{Prototype}} Alex Mercer]]'', on him.

** ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9183474/1/Lelouch-of-the-Shinigami-Path Lelouch of the Shinigami Path]]'', a {{crossover}} with Bleach from karndragon of ''Fanfic/ForHisOwnSake'' fame (see below), splits off from canon at the betrayal with Lelouch getting executed by the Black Knights. The ongoing Britannian world subplot serves as a deconstruction of said betrayal by showing the immediate aftermath had it happened in canon, with Kallen defecting in disgust and facing the Emperor instead, Rolo outing the Black Knights' betrayal as payback, and the UFN falling apart. [[spoiler:And without Lelouch to erase Charles and Marianne from existence, [[TheBadGuyWins they completely succeed in their goal to recreate the world without anyone to oppose them]].]]

** ''[[http://twispitefic.livejournal.com/9538.html Better Loving Through Suicide]]'' hilariously deconstructs Bella and Edward's tendency to [[DrivenToSuicide attempt suicide]] whenever they can't be together and the idealization of suicide they still have when they are. The happy couple have got the Suicide Attempt = Proof of Love so ingrained that now they do attempts on their lives as ''anniversary gifts'' to each other, even if they are now vampires, they work under the immortality rules of ''DeathBecomesHer'' (so they had have lost pieces of their bodies on the road), and even after all the lost "pieces" such attempts still harm more the instruments they use on their attempts against their lives than themselves. [[spoiler:Their relatives eventually tire of their idiocy and use that habit to get rid of them for good.]]

** ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/665845/1/Mamono-Hunter-Ukyou Mamono Hunter Ukyou]]'' (crossover with Anime/DevilHunterYohko), being a DarkFic, rips apart the SadistShow and DysfunctionJunction elements when [[DarkerAndEdgier the stakes are raised]]. It's mostly done with the usual angst mentioned above, with special note going to Kuno (his ego and CasanovaWannabe traits combine into sexual harassment), Principal Kuno (his sadistic eccentricity is not played for laughs at all), and the Tendos (they fall apart when their problems become too much to ignore). Most importantly, this fic shows that the LoveDodecahedron is ''not'' solved by Ranma and Ukyou becoming an OfficialCouple; they aren't completely out of the drama, and the other characters end up making the dodecahedron worse and worse now that the status quo has shifted.

** The fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4333491/1/moves-in-mysterious-ways moves in mysterious ways]] deconstructs a whole chunk of the series: the way that vampires just show up at high schools with little to no past or family and how they might be perceived by more socially aware people, Bella's own social awkwardness, and a counterpoint to Bella's blood smelling particularly "tasty". The main character is a boy whose finds vampire Bella creepy and stalker-like, who is disturbed how quickly she can be accepted into the school social order, the predatory manner in which she looks at people, and her general lack of modern human behaviors.

** Portraying the characters as if the constant power losses, mind hijackings, and secrecy actually had the profound psychological effects one would expect these sort of things to have on a teenager. One of the more well known ''[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mighty Morphin]]'' era fics, ''Personality Conflicts'', starts with Tommy entering psychotherapy.
