** The Daniel Craig movies gradually undergo this process; ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' begins the process of deconstruction by placing Bond in a more gritty, 'modern' setting, and ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' begins with raising the question of whether the typical Bond-style hero is necessary or even relevant in a modern setting, before gradually reintroducing a lot of the traditional elements of the Bond series that had disappeared over the Dalton, Brosnan and Craig movies. As M argues during her Parliamentary hearing, the end of the Cold War has ''not'' made the intelligence services irrelevant; if anything, MI6 is even ''more'' relevant in the age of UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror, when Britain's enemies can hide anywhere and strike at any time.

By the time of ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', Craig's Bond has returned to classic!Bond form with gadgets like an exploding watch or a car-exhaust flame jet, and even the classic NebulousEvilOrganization has returned to plague the current era.

* Much of the dislike for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' stems from people not realizing it's an AffectionateParody as much as it is a Reconstruction of the Silver Age Franchise/{{Batman}}. Although considering how many people only know of [[Film/{{Batman}} Tim Burton's]] and [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Christopher Nolan's]] DarkerAndEdgier interpretations, it's not surprising.

* {{Remodernism}} essentially is a Reconstruction of what PostModernism challenged. The authors of the Remodernist manifesto called PostModernism "brainless destruction of convention" and argue for a new spirituality in art as opposed to the nature of PostModernism, which they describe as [[StrawNihilist nihilistic]].

Similarly, metamodernism acts as a middle-ground between Modernism and Post-Modernism that reexamines the latter while reviving ideas from the former.

* In a bizarre example of this, the TV movie of HarrisonBergeron reconstructs the viewpoint that the original story was parodying, which would be a case of CompletelyMissingThePoint were it not done so well.

** There are benefits for evolving Pokemon, and there are benefits for not evolving them. Chapter 30 explores this in depth by taking an episode with the anime's common evolution based argument, The Battling Eevee Brothers, and expanding it. The Brothers have legitimate reason to want Eevee to evolve that are entirely based on wanting the best for their brother, and their belligerent attitude is noted to be fueled by an outside pressure. While Ash and [[spoiler: Karen]] are able to make a strong point, their points are treated as just as valid as concerns the brothers have.

** Furthermore, while there are plenty of characters who are morally grey, and while even the nicest and sweetest characters are forced into battles and hard decisions, genuine heroes like [[TheCape Captain America]] and [[KnightInShiningArmor Michael Carpenter]], not to mention Harry himself really do exist-they don't ignore their own personal weaknesses, but they stand up against them, overcome the darkness, and provide moral standards for everyone else anyway.
** The story also beautifully reconstructs the idea of the typical RomanceArc. Harry and [[spoiler: Carol]] are falling in love with each other, and both of them more-or-less admit it in time (because pretty much EveryoneCanSeeIt). However, this does ''not'' lead to them falling into each other's arms and making out, or else bottling up the issue; what Carol needs most is a friend, not a boyfriend, and Harry has plenty of issues and emotional baggage to deal with as it is. However, they both acknowledge their love for each other (although still somewhat in denial), and want to move forward, together. If they do end up together, which they almost certainly will, it will be all the better for the fact that they've taken the time to wait and figure things out.

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' starts out as a deconstruction of the two characters, however it eventually gives way to being a reconstruction in how it 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 him 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 now 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 in his stead. ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' will most likely complete the Reconstruction.

** After several seasons of gradually deconstructing the Doctor and revealing what a dangerous, threatening presence he could be, and how many of his enemies rise as a result of their sheer terror of him, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E13TheWeddingOfRiverSong "The Wedding of River Song"]] begins a reconstruction of him; upon what looks like the increasing inevitability of the Doctor's death, one of his companions sends out a distress signal to everyone he's ever helped - and everyone he's ever helped basically responds with "we'll do whatever we can to help." For all that he has his dark side, he's still devoted his life to protecting the innocent and those who can't protect themselves, and is rightly loved by them as a result.

Afterwards, he resolves to "step back into the shadows," and while [[DoomMagnet this lasts]] [[ChronicHeroSyndrome about as well as you'd expect]], it does reconstruct the idea of the Doctor as "just a man in a box, travelling, helping out" after previous seasons had him become TheDreaded and an in-universe MemeticBadass.



* Surprisingly, for all of its mockery of religion, ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon'' ultimately reconstructs it, as it comes to the conclusion that the core of religion; to help people in need and give them morals to follow to become better people, can indeed have a positive influence on others.

* A lot of ''Literature/PrincessHolyAura'' deals with the ethics and morality of sending young teenagers into battle, and how such a girl would have to interact with school and family. The working title for the novel makes this explicit: "The Ethical Magical Girl".
