** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{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.

-->'''Satsuki:''' Exobitionit? 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/KillLaKill'', made by practically the exact same people who made ''Gurren Lagann'', serves as an enormous counter-argument to shows like ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', which do nothing but Deconstruct the entire MagicalGirl genre to such a point that people begin wondering why they even liked the original shows in the first place. Not only is it a Reconstruction of the incredible power of hope, [[PowerOfFriendship friendship]], family, [[PowerOfLove love]], acceptance, and the very idea of OrderVersesChaos with Ryuko's rivalry against Satsuki (and later [[spoiler:their combined rivalry against Ragyo]]), but it is also a Reconstruction of the very idea of {{Fanservice}} itself. It takes the ridiculously skimpy outfits most Magical Girls wear and gives a justified reason for it: [[spoiler:The less a Kamui comes in contact with its wearer's skin, the less likely it is to overwhelm them, thereby feeding the wearer ''its'' power instead of vice-versa, the way all other Life Fibers do.]] Not stopping there, the show also Reconstructs the absolute sense of feeling shame by watching something that has nudity in it. As Satsuki explains in episode three, nudity is nothing to be ashamed of as long it serves a purpose, and that to feel embarrassment from it proves nothing but a lack of conviction, which the entire rest of the show goes out of its way to justify.
