* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' - See its entry under {{Deconstruction}} for details.

to:

* Originally, ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' - See its was meant to be a DeconstructiveParody of shows like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''. While it veered off that course eventually and played a fair number of tropes completely straight (never mind [[MacrossMissileMassacre inventing]] a few along the way), every major entry under {{Deconstruction}} for details.into the ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' franchise has featured at least one major, often scathing, deconstruction of the science fiction and adventure genres, not to mention the anime medium as a whole.

** Whether she is a SUCCESSFUL one-woman deconstructor fleet is a different matter entirely, however, and the game frequently [[CantArgueWithElves will not allow you to refute her views,]][[BrokenAesop even when her conclusions are explicitly suspect]], and it can be argued that because she herself is [[spoiler:the real big bad]], the entire exercise was just a mans for her to try and get under your skin and throw you off psychologically, [[spoiler:since you're the biggest obstacle to her victory]]. She's a highly divisive character for that reason.

** It also deconstructs post-apocalyptic video games (and many AfterTheEnd stories/literature in the process). The Zone doesn't take up the entire world; the rest of the world outside the Zone goes on, and are actually exploiting the Zone for resources. Weapons are unashamedly realistic and all of them are given an explanation as to why they can be found in the game world. The area, much like the Chernobyl Zone it was based on - is not ruined, but simply deserted and slowly crumbling. The story also ends up averting the more "fantastical" elements of games like ''Fallout'' or the ''Metro'' series, as the anomalies [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane aren't really magical]] as much as they're just... [[AlienGeometries scientifically strange]].

** ADAM is a deconstruction of both superpowers and MundaneUtility. The frivolous uses of the substance for plastic surgery, sports, and other mundane purposes left people hopelessly addicted, repulsively disfigured by genetic disorders, and irrevocably insane, thus creating the Splicers that function as the main enemies of the game. The only characters in the game who haven't ended up this way are people who [[UsefulNotes/StraightEdge didn't splice]] (Ryan, Lamb, and Tenembaum), [[FunctionalAddict spliced in moderation]] (Atlas, Sinclair, Poole, Langford, and Fontaine [[spoiler: prior to the final boss battle]]), or possessed a natural immunity (The Big Sisters, Eleanor, and apparently [[spoiler: the protagonists]]).

** ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' deconstructs the nature of linear video games upon its ending, [[spoiler:stating that there are constants and variables in the narrative, alluding to the gameplay (and programming) itself)]].

* ''Film/FunnyGames'': A {{Slasher|Movie}} film with DangerouslyGenreSavvy killers who know they're in a film and [[NoFourthWall break the fourth wall]] to accuse the audience of wanting innocents to suffer for their amusement. The killers are continually disappointed when the family does the more common sense action rather than ratcheting up the tension, and the real violence is only heard, not seen. Ultimately, the killers are the audience. [[spoiler:They even change the outcome after the family fights back... with a remote control.]]

* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' - Long before ''{{Narutaru}}'' did, they had already deconstructed the sheer horror of a world populated by {{Mon}}s while also being the TropeMaker.
