* ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'' deconstructs platform games by setting it in an EverythingTryingToKillYou world (and by everything, we mean ''everything'').

* Music/TheLonelyIsland's "Space Olympics" music video starts off by hyping up how awesome "space Olympics" would be...before demonstrating all the various mishaps that would probably happen: athletes only get one meal per day because of food budget limitations, there's no light or sound (on the plus side, no curfew!), "[[{{Understatement}} minor]] scheduling adjustments" are made such as several events getting cancelled and all other events pending, the oxygen aboard the station runs out, and last but not least, someone accidentally self-destructs the entire station.

* ''LightNovel/KonoSubarashiiSekaiNiShukufukuO'' does this to the light novel subgenre where an [[TrappedInAnotherWorld ordinary person is transported or reincarnated to an RPG-like world]], and [=RPGs=] to a lesser extent. The protagonists of these novels usually thrive in the new world, have a powerful cheat item or ability, and even gain a harem party to boot, but this trend doesn't seem to apply for Kazuma. This hapless protagonist gets stuck in a CrapsackWorld with very little RPG amenities, chooses a cheat item in the form of an insufferable goddess, has two party members who exaggerate their job class in both abilities and personality, etc. As a result, what would have been a grand adventure turns into a sitcom where the party can barely make ends meet.

* Thad Castle from ''Series/BlueMountainState'' is one of they typical JerkJock with TestosteronePoisoning. His actions and behavior are not that much out of the ordinary for the character type, but Thad pushes it further and further to the point where early on you can tell that he's ''dangerously insane''.

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 an atypical {{Deconstruction}}.

* The film ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' can be seen as a particularly harsh one of the traditional anthropomorphization of objects and animals seen in Disney in Pixar movies. How would anthropomorphized food react to the fact that their true purpose in life is to be ''eaten''?

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' took ''everything'' from the American Western genre, a couple dozen more from every other genre of American film, and proceeded to nuke them (particularly the racist elements) in a way that only MelBrooks and RichardPryor could manage. It was almost two decades before anyone took the Western seriously again.

* ''Film/{{Ted}}'' is pretty much ''Toy Story'' (the first one) mixed with ''Pinocchio'' and deconstructed with all the humor one would find in a SethMacFarlane production (namely ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'').

What happens if a young boy makes a wish to have his favourite toy come to life? The wish comes true, of course, but ''Ted'' shows what happens when the boy and his cuddly toy companion grow into adulthood. Mostly concerning widespread media coverage, the complicated relationship issues which arise from a woman wanting more from [[ManChild a man who still sleeps with his teddy bear despite him being in his thirties]], and the fact that Ted has spent his whole life living off others and has consequently never been to school, had a job or eve learned to live on his own, so when he actually does need to find work, all he he can manage is a piss-poor cashier job at a crappy downtown grocery store.

* Jack Burton of ''BigTroubleInLittleChina'' is a Deconstructive Parody of the AllAmericanFace. Burton sports a JamesDean pompadour and drawls like JohnWayne, but lives up to these iconic images of American masculinity with less than perfect aplomb. Overconfident and always slightly behind the information curve, his bombast sometimes pays off, but more often makes him the butt of a slapstick gag. For a light comic performance, KurtRussell walks a very precise tightrope, giving Jack a puppyish quality that redeems his made-in-America arrogance. The audience roots for him to succeed, and to be taken down a peg or two along the way.
