* ''Fanfic/HeroesForEarth'' is a DarkerAndGrittier reboot of [[CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Captain Planet]], set in the not too distant future. It takes the concept of how hard it would be to be chosen by a mysterious godlike entity and have the power of the elements, and be tasked with stopping those who are constantly endangering the Earth through their carelessness or greed. However, the heroes are all three dimensional characters, who remain hopeful once given a chance at changing the world's fate, and bring hope to the world, and bring about a better era.

* Masahiro Sakurai, famous for ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'', ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' and ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' feels [[http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/3ds/kidicarus/0/0 this]] is his style of game development, deconstructing it and taking away genre mainstays that aren't necessary and then reconstructing it by adding what he thinks is fun. ''Uprising'' reconstructs the arcade-style action games and mythology-styled games in a similar vein to GurrenLagann. While the game is aware of the darker implications that games like ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' and VideoGame/GodOfWar have brought up (ie; BlackAndGreyMorality, LightIsNotGood, GodIsFlawed, CrapsaccharineWorld, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s etc.) it still manages to maintain a light-hearted tone while keeping with the tropes that those other games brought up.

-->'''Ryuko:''' Not sure how I feel about you laughing at me in your exobitionist get-up.
-->'''Satsuki:''' Exobitionist? Nonsense! To unleash the most power this is the form a Kamui must take! You cling to the puritanical views of the masses, proving just how inferior you are! But I won't be ashamed! If it means I can fulfill my ambitions, I will bare my breasts for all to see! I will do whatever it takes! For I know that my actions are utterly pure!

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' can be seen as a Reconstruction in the Gundam franchise, where Anime/MobileSuitGundam put forth the original concept layout of Gundam, and [[Anime/MobileSuit Zeta Gundam]] became a Deconstruction of those concepts, such as FallingIntoTheCockpit. Though not everyone [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks saw it as such.]]

** Kamina is a Reconstruction of the HotBlooded {{All Loving|Hero}} IdiotHero stereotype. It's made clear that he only acts this way because he's just as afraid as everyone else, but needs to put on a [[StepfordSmiler brave face]] to inspire the others. Also, characters pretty much always point out exactly how suicidally stupid his actions are and how they'll get him killed, [[spoiler:which they eventually do in Episode 8]]. However, the Reconstruction comes in that, A) he lives in a universe where RuleOfCool and [[RatedMForManly excessive manliness]] [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve actually translates into tangible power]], and B) the degree to which he inspires the other protagonists, [[spoiler:even years after his death]], cannot be overstated.

** His reasons for doing so are also explored. In Episode 8, he explains how he does all of this just for the love of the fight, but to ensure a better future for the next generation. Furthermore, he also places a good deal of faith in others, best represented how his belief in Simon brought out the unfanthomable amount of potential he had. Where no one else believed in him, not even himself, Kamina believed in Simon and Simon could believe in that, which helped him learn to believe in himself.

** There's also Rarity: Told that there would need to be fashion elements, the writers dumped that role on a single stereotypically vain and superficial character -- and then made her strong, independent and capable anyway, with a meaningful artistic career in fashion.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* ''{{Film/Chicago}}'' and ''Film/MoulinRouge'' are credited with reconstructing TheMusical in movies. Both films employ a FramingDevice to justify all the singing - ''Chicago'' featuring the songs as figments of Roxie's imagination, and ''Moulin Rouge'' has Christian narrating the story and emphasising the surrealist nature of the songs. Both had the darkness of the earlier deconstructions, but still plenty of throwbacks to the fun and frivolity of classic musicals.


Added DiffLines:

* The women of NXT went a long way towards reconstructing women's wrestling in WWE. After years of {{Chickification}} and emphasis on {{Fanservice}}, the women were allowed to wrestle. The women had the talent and tenacity of the stars of the 80s, while also the glamour and character of the Divas of the Attitude Era.

* ''Film/HotFuzz'' was partially an attempt to revive the British police officer as a credible movie hero after almost every British crime movie of the previous decade (or at least since ''LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels'') had instead focused on glorifying criminals. Hot Fuzz spent its first half deconstructing the police-action movie, then used its second half to gleefully rebuild it.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' first deconstructs the AlwaysChaoticEvil trope by showing that the goblins (and Redcloak and his brother in particular) suffer greatly because of the perception that all goblins are Evil, then reconstructs it by showing that Redcloak is still, in fact, completely evilóbut because of the choices he's made, many of which were due to the goblins' circumstances in the world. He's not evil because he's a goblin, he's evil because of how he reacts to how goblins are treated.
** After comprehensively deconstructing ThePaladin with Miko Miyazaki [[spoiler: with disastrous in-story consequences]], the author went out of his way to showcase "everything right about the paladin" in O-Chul, demonstrating that the very same tropes that led to Miko's corruption could also be applied practically when in the right hands and create a truly heroic and righteous character.

** ''Reconstruction'' is actually a DoubleSubversion. Yes, it put some tropes back together but it utterly obliterates some of the jokes the series as a whole has built over five seasons.



* WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC seems to have gone this way. It started off with heros discussing their movies, to heroes discussing their movies while socialising, to Lex Luthor attacking the heroes while they're trying to socialise, and has since built up a canon of jokes and joke-threats ad threats that used to be jokes, and constantly flipping allegiances. And it's ''still'' flipping hilarious.
