** The Universal Century in general is itself a deconstruction of the sort of ideas, tropes and lofty aspirations that inspire the likes of ''StarTrek'', which is further highlighted by works like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn''. If there are strange new worlds to see, expect them to have a lot of the same problems we deal with on Earth. And expect humanity to bring its conflicts, bloodshed and hubris to the stars.

** OlderThanTheyThink: Some of its plot can be traced back to "[[http://fanlore.org/wiki/Visit_to_a_Weird_Planet Visit to a Weird Planet]]" ([[http://www.deadparrottavern.com/forum/showthread.php?12433-ST-TOS-Visit-to-a-weird-planet online here]]), by Jean Lorrah and Willard F. Hunt, and its sequel "[[http://members.optusnet.com.au/virgothomas/space/trek/weirdplanet.html Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited]]" by Ruth Berman, a pair of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' Deconstruction Fics from 1968!

** On the subject of Creator/DakariKingMykan, he claims his Starfleet fanfics are a deconstruction of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. However, they are actually an example of this trope done poorly. [[AuthorTract By letting his own feelings get in the way,]] [[EightDeadlyWords as well as his poor narrative style making everything dull, boring, and clichéd,]] it is a textbook example of how '''not''' to do a {{deconstruction}}.

** Later in the story it [[{{Anvilicious}} brutally]] [[WarIsHell deconstructs]] [[WarIsGlorious battles where modern or futuristic soldiers]] fight a technologically inferior army and win the day with little to no casualties.

** The CentralTheme is a downright ''brutal'' deconstruction of VigilanteMan series like Literature/TheExecutioner or Literature/TheDestroyer; the The Player's backers actually have authority ''over'' the system any other vigilante would see himself as superior to, and Alex would much rather [[LawfulGood work within the system]] as he has [[DarkAndTroubledPast personal experience]] of [[HeWhoFightsMonsters what working outside the law will do to his psyche]]. However, his resources are under the control of an AncientConspiracy of [[{{Fiction 500}} absurdly rich]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney sociopaths]] who can't be considered civic-minded by any definition of the term - they're only supporting him to [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing watch him kill people/blow stuff up]] and roughly half the funding comes from fat cats who hope he'll either ''fail'' or '''die.''' Mr. Johnson agrees that it would be much better if [[ReedRichardsIsUseless the technology]] the Player uses to "[[TheyFightCrime fight crime]]" was part of [[CutLexLuthorACheck legitimate law enforcement]], but the Gamblers wouldn't find that to be [[ForTheLulz as much fun]], and they're the PowersThatBe and things would be a lot worse if the Game didn't exist for the Gamblers' amusement. He's able to do so many things because PoliceAreUseless, but only because they're forcibly LockedOutOfTheLoop by the House.

** ''VideoGame/{{NieR}}'' is pretty much the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' in terms of the way it brutally deconstructs the very concept of heroism. [[PlayerPunch Especially]] its massive deconstruction of NewGamePlus, which is used as a medium to expand the narrative - its not for nothing that the game is widely considered to be one of the [[TearJerker most depressing games]] [[DownerEnding ever made]].

** It also brutally averts the trope that a good guy armed with righteous anger etc. can beat a bad guy who is more skilled and/or more powerful. Any character who loses their head in a fight and stops fighting smart promptly gets their dislocated ass handed to them and learns a harsh lesson: will does ''not'' beat skill.

** Kuroro Lucifer is weird. [[MonsterClown Hisoka]] does ''not'' belong in children's comics. And Meruem is an attempt to be psychologically ''realistic'' about a cosmic-level entity born full-grown to devour humans and conquer the world.

** ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' deconstructs action RPGs, MultipleEndings, and DarkFantasy in general. In particular, it's infamous for its multiple endings which became progressively more difficult to unlock while simultaneously becoming more bizarre, depressing and surreal, culminating in an elaborate [[spoiler: [[GainaxEnding Gainax]] JokeEnding]]

* ''LastScenario'' could practically be considered a western [[VideoGame/TalesSeries Tales game]] (including the turning of the entire story on its head at the halfway point). [[spoiler: TheChosenOne isn't chosen at all, other than in the sense that the villains found him to be easy to manipulate because of his overly-idealistic nature. The great hero from ancient times who saved the world from demons is all propaganda; in reality, the demons were a race of elf-like people the hero was supposed to exterminate, but ended up siding with. There's an [[GoodRepublicEvilEmpire evil kingdom and a good empire]] (at least, once the corrupt elements are cleaned out), and battles against both are done with a combination of political intrigue and massive military operations instead of just a RagtagBunchOfMisfits taking care of everything (though they're still at the forefront of most of the battles).]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' has started to show signs of this in its second season- parodying movies like ''Film/Armageddon'', the look-after-a-baby subplot, teen musicals and more.
