** Seth himself becomes a reconstruction of LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces. He has been searching for love so badly, that he eventually gets an wrongful reputation as a [[TheCasanova Casanova]], but he can find true love [[spoiler: when he and Beatrice finally work things out in the end.]]
** Beatrice and Seth are a reconstruction of WrongAssumption. They have misunderstood each other completely over and over (she believed that he's a Casanova, he believed that she's a Gold Digger), but they [[spoiler: can work things out in the end]].
** Seth also serves as a reconstruction of the NouveauRiche. Many people think that he's an irritating upstart, who spends an insane amount of money on women, and the OldMoney generally despise him. And it does not help that he can be unnecessarily mean and proud. But it soon becomes clear to the reader, that there is more depth to him than that, and in the end, he becomes [[spoiler:happily married to Beatrice]].

** Beatrice and Seth are a reconstruction of CantSpitItOut and WrongAssumption. They have misunderstood each other completely over and over (she believed that he's he was a Casanova, [[TheCasanova Casanova]], he believed that she's a Gold Digger), but GoldDigger), and it has awful consequences especially for her. But they [[spoiler: can work things out in the end]].eventtually and have a HappyEnding.

** As a whole, "Överenskommelser" is pretty much a GenreDeconstruction of the RomanceNovel. Many of the old clichés are there, but we get good reasons as to ''why'' these clichés would happen. Why exactly is it so hard for Beatrice and Seth to admit their feelings for each other? Well, Beatrice is too afraid to tell Seth the truth about her awful situation because her EvilUncle has threatened her and her friends. And as for Seth, he is too afraid to take chances because Lily Tremaine had dumped him and broken his heart in the past. And we also have Beatrice's uncle and cousin, who will do anything to destroy their happiness. So it becomes very hard for them to untangle all the misunderstandings. And we also see the consequences of this, when Beatrice in particular has to suffer from it. But it becomes a Reconstruction in the end, when Beatrice and Seth can work things out and have a HappyEnding.

Thus, Princess Classic is not being married into a fairy-tale monarchy, but into a post-Napoleonic 19th- or 20th-century one - a constitutional monarchy in {{Ruritania}}, with the scenery and regalia but without the power and corruption (or at least with the Princess taking a meaningful stand against it if it is present), so she won't end up like Marie Antoinette.

** ''Literature/{{Summerland}}'' reconstructs adolescent HighFantasy like ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' by giving it a fresh setting - in this case, a fantasy-world based on American culture and folklore.

* The aptly-titled ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' fanfic [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1564184/chapters/3319019 Reconstruction]] (still in-progress) applies the familiar GenderFlip trope to Steve/Stephanie Rogers, then goes on to illustrate why the character traits that created a patriotic hero remain constant regardless of gender. Along the way, it also gives an impressive number of extremely well thought out insights into how the canonical events of the first Captain America film would have been experienced and influenced by the protagonist's altered perspective. Additionally, it examines the myth of that patriotic hero (in this case, "Lady Liberty" rather than "Captain America") from the viewpoints of popular culture looking back at it -- via academic papers, historical books, and even excerpts from romance novels.

** As noted by Ralph Garman, the [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] also reconstructs the superhero costume, notably [[AvertedTrope averting]] MovieSuperheroesWearBlack. While none of the outfits are actual spandex, and most make plenty of concessions to practicality, they also tend to be very colorful, and as faithful as possible to their comic-book origins -- the Winter Soldier even retains his NinetiesHair.
*** The Falcon was a rare case where [[MovieSuperheroesWearBlack an MCU hero was stuck in a drab grey version of his costume]] -- until Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron, when his outfit was revamped to feature more of his signature red.

** ''Literature/TheYiddishPolicemensUnion'' reconstructs traditional FilmNoir and HardboiledDetective stories, again, by giving it a fresh setting -- an AlternateHistory version of America where a thriving Yiddish culture exists on the Alaskan frontier.

** The earlier [[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks "Remembrance of the Daleks"]] does something similar -- however, since it was made at a point where ''Doctor Who'' was at a low point with regards to its popularity with low viewing figures, it was decided that the audience would need a refresher course in "Why Daleks Are Actually Scary". Interestingly enough, in the Daleks' first appearances in comics during the '60s, they were already shown flying.
** 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.

* While the 2013 stage musical ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' presents the character of Willy Wonka -- long notorious for his CallousnessTowardsEmergency, SkewedPriorities, and [[NoSympathy lack of sympathy for those who disobey his warnings]] -- as an AmbiguouslyEvil AntiHero who may actually be mentally ill, unlike other adaptations it explores ''why'' he's devoted his life to making absurd, whimsical sweets and turning a factory into TheWonderland, and the reasons given [[ForHappiness turn out to be]] [[DoingItForTheArt rather beautiful]]. As well, while the novel and most other versions have him seeking a good, obedient child who won't change the way his factory is run to serve as his heir, this version has him seeking a child who [[spoiler: is kind, knows better than to fool with what he shouldn't...'''and''' has his own creative ideas and determination to share them even if it means breaking a silly rule or two. The show ends with Mr. Wonka immediately making Charlie the new boss and leaving so that the boy, with the help of his family and the Oompa-Loompas, can continue Mr. Wonka's work in his own unique way]].

** Even though the idea was something of a DeadUnicornTrope in the first place, Commander Shepard is the closest thing to a [[PlayedStraight straight]] example of "CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth" that you'll ever see in modern fiction. He/She starts out as a garden variety SpaceMarine, but manages to display enough courage, leadership, intelligence and integrity to get tapped as the first human member of an interspecies peacekeeping organization, and later becomes singlehandedly responsible for driving off an alien invasion that threatens all life in the galaxy--for the simple reason that [[CassandraTruth nobody else believes that it's really happening]]. With the fully fleshed-out setting and characters, it almost becomes ''believable'' that one starship captain with a loyal crew could end up as [[ComicStrip/FlashGordon the savior of the universe]].

* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' is another case in which a deconstruction can potentially be a reconstruction. Yes, we know, the anime and some routes of the game can totally smash LoveTriangle and UnwantedHarem to pieces -- but if the player takes the right decision, both tropes can be played straight. Or, with lots of effort and planning, evolve into OneTrueThreesome.

** 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, while still keeping her quirkiness.

* In the 2010s (although it arguably started earlier with 2007's ''Disney/{{Enchanted}}''), Disney began reconstructing its classic "fairy tales with princesses and true love" formula that had been deconstructed and parodied to death in the 2000s by films like ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Hoodwinked}}''. Their princesses are proactive and have goals that don't include "find my true love" anywhere in them, their princes now need to go through a lot of CharacterDevelopment and/or aren't even actual princes in the first place, and TrueLovesKiss and LoveAtFirstSight don't work as they used to, but ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', and ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' all still end with the villain being defeated, ThePowerOfLove saving the day in some way, and the main characters living HappilyEverAfter.

* ''Disney/{{Enchanted}}'' takes a stereotypical Disney princess and puts her in the real world of New York. Giselle starts out tripping over her own feet and being generally clueless, and making life very difficult for her caretaker. Soon, her quirkiness and overall sunshine start affecting her new world positively, and at the end she's seen using her gown-making skills and ability to control animals to start a successful fashion store.

*** Additionally, the former IneffectualSympatheticVillain and MauveShirt Henchman 21 TookALevelInBadass, turning into TheDragon and HypercompetentSidekick Two-Ton Twenty-One, an utterly devoted BadAss both in personal performance and boosting the morale of the rest of the Monarch's troops.

* Rappers like [[FiftyCent 50 cent]], Boyz n da Hood, et al were supposed to be a reconstruction of hardcore hip-hop in the mainstream. But it never really caught on. Likely because of the lack of mainstream media support. Although "fiddy" [[LighterAndSofter defied]] this with radio friendly songs like "In da Club", "Candy Shop" etc.

** Other earlier reconstructions include the '80s show ''Anime/{{Dancougar}}'', which combined the old-school SuperRobot formula with RealRobot-style sensibilities, and ''Anime/GunBuster'', which has been described as "A SuperRobot show disguised as a RealRobot show", and succeeds in once again getting viewers to marvel at the title robot's awesome power.[[UnbuiltTrope in fact]], if ''Anime/MazingerZ'' was not the TropeCodifier for the SuperRobot genre, it would seem like a {{Deconstruction}} or parody. [[note]]TheProfessor (in the original manga) was a MadScientist nearly as mad as the BigBad, and said BigBad is a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds; the main character nearly destroys the town while he's trying to figure out how to pilot the mecha (and in the anime he was close to accidently stomping his little brother into paste), he almost got killed in his first battle because he had no idea of how to handle it (and he only survived because Mazinger-Z was so powerful) and took a long time to learn how to pilot Mazinger; Kouji got his CoolHelmet and and LatexSpaceSuit to protect his body because the mecha, though nearly indestructible, didn't provide much safety for the pilot inside; Mazinger needed to be constantly upgraded and improved because the BigBad mechas kept on getting stronger and more dangerous and attacking its weak points; TheHero and his LoveInterest nearly got killed several times [[BelligerentSexualTension due to their quarrels]] diminishing their combat effectiveness; people DID NOT appreciate the destruction and death toll caused by the battles between HumongousMecha, and often blamed the heroes; and the BigBad is smart enough to send the [[{{Robeast}} "Mechanical Beasts"]] in groups to attack Mazinger, try alternate strategies or improve on effective tactics. And that's before [[WhamEpisode the villains take over a Japanese village in a very Nazi-like manner, including a systematic slaughter of the civilians that they considered "useless" and usage of the women of the village as human shields for their latest Mechanical Beast]]. And then you have that, at the end, [[spoiler:the heroes are defeated, Mazinger Z and all mechas are destroyed, and the base is demolished.]] Keeping in mind ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' was DarkerAndEdgier, GoNagai's penchant for {{Gorn}}, ''Manga/GetterRobo'' is in reality is a CosmicHorrorStory, and ''Anime/{{Zambot 3}}'' was already deconstructing the genre back in 1977, we can conclude the HumongousMecha genre has been going through a constant cycle of Deconstruction and Reconstruction since its birth.

* This is a CyclicTrope, especially in the HumongousMecha genre: every decade or so when the genre is reaching the point of seriousness. Pre-EVA, there was also ''GiantRobo'' (though this was at least partially due to the manga being made in the '60s).

''' Before labeling something as a deconstruction, doublecheck that there has been a deconstruction, that it's not a deconstruction that makes a work LighterAndSofter, and that it's actually ''realistic''.'''

* Much of Nintendo's massive success with the {{Wii}} and {{DS}} is due to reintroducing the simplicity and arcade-style gameplay that made the original UsefulNotes/{{NES}} and GameBoy mass phenomenons. Nintendo even went so far as to make [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros all-new]] [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii 2D sidescrollers]] for both of them.
