* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7Hoz2ZHYZM This fake ad]] by Creator/RocketJump parodies '90s commercials for kids' food and drink by showing just what would happen if three kids, after drinking [[WritingAroundTrademarks Not Capri Sun]], turned into metallic liquid. The answer: BodyHorror.

* Creator/RocketJump created [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7Hoz2ZHYZM "Every '90s Commercial Ever"]] as a parody of old ads for Capri Sun, in which a group of "extreme" kids drink Capri Sun and turn into liquid metal in a manner reminiscent of ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''. Rocket Jump's version plays that for BodyHorror and BlackComedy.

* A lot of the comedy of ''ComicBook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool'' come from the fact that it's a deconstructive parody of the SelfInsertSue as our titular heroine is just a normal teenaged girl that just ''sounds'' like she's the strange fusion of SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} and [[Franchise/SpiderMan Gwen Stacy]] (her real name ''is'' Gwen Poole). Examples include:

Most parodies work in a light hearted manner, taking the basic plot of the thing they parody, and making it humorous. The giant space station may have wiped out half the Earth in the original, but in the parody only some unimportant AcceptableTargets got destroyed, and HilarityEnsues.

And then there are these. While the parody might have made the plot silly, and light hearted, the Deconstructive Parody plays exactly like any other {{Deconstruction}}, in that everything is treated as if it were to really happen - it's just that humour is still drawn from the original story, while also serving to show what would really happen.

In a Deconstructive Parody the giant space station will still wipe out half the Earth, and while the characters will reflect on this tragedy, and take it seriously, it will still be presented humorously. Maybe all that's left are the Acceptable Targets, or perhaps the doomsday device is entirely ridiculous and non-threatening in conception, yet still works. Either way, what matters is that the plot is still treated as real, and plays out tropes as you would expect from a typical {{Deconstruction}}.

* Music/TheGregoryBrothers song "DJ Play My Song (No, Leave Me Alone)" spoofs the ExhortTheDiscJockeySong by raising the question of what kind of person would make repeated demands of the DJ in such a hyperbolic manner, disregarding his opinions, those of the other patrons, and the club's policies. And what this person must be like once the club closes. It doesn't end well for the DJ.

-->Hobbes: "Why do you care that nobody knows your identity?"

* ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' can initially be viewed as a heavy deconstruction of anthropomorphization, which is common among animated works that are aimed towards more younger audiences (especially Disney and Pixar).

* ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' can initially be viewed as a heavy deconstruction of anthropomorphization, which is common among animated works along with certain tropes associated with Creator/{{Pixar}} movies. The film features AnthropomorphicFood as the main characters (along with other anthropomorphic objects) who are under the impression that are aimed towards more younger audiences (especially Disney and Pixar).being bought by humans (formerly seen to them as gods) will led them to their destiny (the Great Beyond).

Examples include:
** While Deadpool's BreakingTheFourthWall moments are quick, fleeting and leaves everyone around him confused, Gwenpool goes into complete rants, leading to people asking if she's insane.
** Being a girl from the real world, she's essentially a SecretSecretKeeper to the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe. This proves to be a bad thing when she yells out [[ComicBook/{{Thor2014}} the female Thor's]] identity and her response is to threaten to smash her head into the wall for saying so, forcing her to VerbalBackspace.
