* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' to ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasyBattle'', the original setting comes as a deconstruction of many classic fantasy tropes, with the Forces of Chaos eventually winning, killing the order-aligned gods and destroying the world despite the heroes doing their best to stop them. In the new setting it seems the scenario is repeating itself and Chaos is taking hold of the new reality once more, having conquered 7 of the 8 Mortal Realms, that is until [[HopeBringer Sigmar]], [[DeityOfHumanOrigin one of the surviving heroes of the previous setting and now a fully empowered celestial god]], launches a massive counter-invasion from his previously isolated Realm, literally sending TheArmiesOfHeaven to take on the enemy, every one of his Stormcast Eternals is a [[CameBackStrong nearly-killed hero saved by Sigmar and empowered to match the worst Chaos can throw at them]], while a real victory over Chaos is in no way certain and the war is far from over as [[HopeCrusher Archaon]], the main champion of the Gods of Chaos, is starting to move against Sigmar's armies, [[HopeSpringsEternal hope and civilization has finally returned to the once lost Mortal Realms]].

* ''ComicBook/CaptainAtom: Armageddon'' was this as well. By the time it came out, the Creator/WildStorm characters had come to embody all the excesses of UsefulNotes/{{the Dark Age|of Comic Books}}, so DC brought ComicBook/CaptainAtom, who, while [[DeconstructorFleet hardly what you'd call a traditional superhero]], nonetheless was a much more [[TheCape wholesome, positive character]] to set the WildStorm Universe to rights.

* The WhateleyUniverse is basically a reconstruction of the {{superhero}} genre, starting with kids at a SuperheroSchool and an attempt to define realistic powers and the AppliedPhlebotinum to make them work. ([[AuthorAppeal And]] GenderBender[=s=] [[AuthorAppeal galore]].)

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' is in part a reconstruction of the HaremGenre and MarryThemAll outcome. While it might be in the realms of fantasy, it can still be a believable romance, but it requires a lot of visible work from the characters. And not just from the guy who has to earn so many hearts, but also from the girls involved, who have to be willing to support each other instead of lash out in jealousy.

Please note that this is not an academically recognised term or concept, having grown out of TvTropes' own style of media analysis. In academia, a reconstruction would simply be a second deconstruction.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' takes every aspect of GothicHorror that's considered old hat nowadays and makes it scary again, in large part by making sure NotUsingTheZedWord is in full effect so there's no immediate familiarity to latch onto. The Beast Disease turns lycanthropy into an infectious disease that transforms people into feral creatures in a way that's permanent, disfiguring and [[PainfulTransformation excruciatingly painful]], and it's spreading across the city of Yharnam on a grand scale. Consumption of blood is so commonplace, that vampirism is the norm. Mobs of villagers wielding TorchesAndPitchforks serve as the typical {{Mook}}, and they're completely unaware that [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie they are the monsters they're hunting]]. The {{Mad Scientist}}s are not satisfied with merely PlayingGod, they have aspirations of ''[[AGodAmI becoming gods,]]'' and their TranshumanTreachery is ultimately what gave birth to the Beast Disease. [[spoiler:And at the heart of it all are the Great Ones, who in turn reconstruct the Lovecraftian CosmicHorrorStory by being {{Outside Context Problem}}s who seemingly come out of nowhere and have motives and abilities that are just so alien, they cannot even ''begin'' to be understood by a sane mind.]]

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' starts out as a deconstruction of the two characters, however it eventually gives way to being a reconstruction in how brings both of them back to something closer to their classic forms. Consider how much each's characterization at first aligns to how a bunch of people complain about them on the internet, often in the name of "realism". Superman is a figure with so much power that people have trouble relating to him on a human level and without it completely under control accidentally contributes to the loss of lives during the battle between he and Zod in Metropolis. Batman rather than being the noble hero with a strict no killing policy is here more unhinged at first, being more jaded and perfectly willing to kill even someone like Superman. However by the end Superman proves that he can live up to the ideal he's supposed to represent by willingly sacrificing himself to destroy Doomsday which brings about him the adoration of the masses that he usually receives. Batman begins to renounce his more extreme ways as shown by his decision not to give Lex Luthor the Bat-Brand and how he's not willing to work with metahumans to the point that he decides to put a team of them together in order to continue Superman's mission.
