* ''Literature/ThePostman'' gleefully rips the entire genre of post-apocalyptic fiction to shreds through the simple means of making the protagonist an [[TheEveryman everyman]] rather than a BadAss Franchise/MadMax-type AntiHero and showing what life with marauding hordes and rampant diseases and without modern medicine, food production, industry and communications is really like when you don't have PlotArmor.

* ''Comicbook/{{Miracleman}}'' was one of the earliest {{Deconstruction}}s of the superhero genre, showing the Fascist undertones of the genre, explored the abuse of power, and showed a particularly [[{{Gorn}} Gory]] and [[PersonOfMassDestruction destructive]] superhero battle that was legitimately shocking at the time. Yet it still manages to explore ''[[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]'' mythos in a very witty and Tongue-In-Cheek manner.

** StandardFantasySetting: Elves are ''not'' always better than other races, they ''certainly aren't'' always ''wiser'', and they're often jerkasses about it to boot. Good men can wreck the world with the best of intentions while someone who is unquestionably evil can still be right once in a while. The traditionalist kingdom with armies of {{Magic Knight}}s loses badly in a war with the industrialised kingdom which uses [[ZergRush rifle-toting peasant levies]]. Wandering adventurers raiding old ruins for treasure are basically treated as a joke, and old heroes who travelled the world righting wrongs [[spoiler:eventually started a war because they disagreed about what was the right and wrong thing to do and turned on each other]].

* ''{{Tron}}: Ghost in the Machine'' (follow up to AlternateContinuity ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'') dishes out some deconstruction with a side order of MindScrew. The comic opens with Jet Bradley going from a promising game designer to hunkering down in his HonoraryUncle's darkened arcade, [[StrangerInAFamiliarLand virulently technophobic]] with a nasty case of PTSD from all the digital lives he had to take in the course of the game.

* ''FanFic/ShinobiTheRPG'' deconstructs not only the PeggySue, SuddenGameInterface, and SelfInsert genres of Fanfic; but also ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. [[TheHero Daisuke's]] LevelGrinding is viewed as him being a BloodKnight by his peers and colleagues, and his abilities are viewed as a unique bloodline that others desire to use for their own ends. His knowledge of future events has others eye him with suspicion. He chose Charisma as his DumpStat, which causes him to be alienated by many people and causes him to make bad judgement calls. When he finally gets "Almost Perfect" all of this and much more hits him ''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone hard]]''.

* The Tellius duology does this to Fire Emblem. Setting and Backstory aside, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance Path of Radiance]]'' pretty much starts off as a ClicheStorm for ''FireEmblem'' games. However, it starts to play with the tropes before the game's over - such as the Nyna/Guinevere figure donning battle armour and joining the fight herself. ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn Radiant Dawn]]'' starts off as a deconstruction of the events of Path of Radiance, showing that Begnion is NotSoDifferent in treating their newly acquired country well; and that even Crimea, whose victory in the Mad King War went like a fairy tale for them, was again NotSoDifferent. The country was united during the Mad King War against a common enemy, yet when that was over, things went back to normal with nobles and senators squabbling for power, beginning to doubt whether or not their new queen was truly fit to rule. As put by a LetsPlay, Part 2 serves as a very nice deconstruction to the series, showing the realistic consequences of the rightful heir to the throne being kept unknown from the public and emerging to help guide the country during its time of need. Both games also examine the implications of a ruler with a HundredPercentAdorationRating, specifically what happens when such a ruler is suddenly removed. The moment the people of Begnion had someone to blame for their beloved Empress' death, it ended with the genocide of a race of entirely innocent pacifists.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/WingmanDX'' deconstructs many tropes pertaining to the visual novel and dating simulator genres, as well as some narrative tropes associated with romantic comedies. For example, the game permits the player to name their character, but most of the Wings reject the name and call you by the name Balyssa anyway. Other routes punish players for expecting to be able to fix characters' personal problems just by being persistent enough.
