Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' is inspired by Fanfic/AshesOfThePast, and as such the story takes on several aspects of canon and fanon and makes them work in a way that retains the spirit of and fits with the original show. For example:
** Instead of Ash just being forgetful, the reason for him never going back for Pidgeot was a side-effect of climate shifts from the second movie causing the flock to move, and the Counter-Shield wasn't used in Unova because his attempts to teach it to his Unovan Pokémon ended in failure.
** Ash's somewhat fan-disliked habit of leaving his Pokémon in Professor Oak's ranch whenever he goes to a new region helps them in keeping in shape, given that they have plenty of space to train by themselves and stay active.
** The league ability of un-evolved mons is also reconstructed: Scott notes to Yellow that an unevolved Pokemon, while less durable, also has the advantages of learning moves much faster, plus trainers might be less familiar to fight them at higher levels, as they would be used to fighting their more advanced forms.

** The brothers themselves started out as savage parodies of kid adventurers. They were useless in the real world, their very sheltered upbringing leaving them socially awkward and ignorant of how real kids behaved. They were mostly useless in the adventurer world as well, being physically weak and kind of dumb [[spoiler: not to mention death-prone.]] But a combination of events kept them away from adventure and forced them to confront how much their lives sucked, and their attempts to normalize themselves has made them more competent and aware. Hank can now dodge henchmen without needing a rescue from Brock, while Dean can repair HELPER or a ray shield without panicking.

* ''Literature/TheCanterburyTales'' seems to do this with the courtly love genre in the ''Franklin's Tale''. Chaucer had parodied the genre in both the ''Miller's Tale'' and the [[StylisticSuck deliberately sucky]] ''Tale of Sir Topas'' (which Chaucer [[TheDanza assigned to himself]]). The ''Franklin's Tale'' Reconstructs it by keeping the postive genre element of celebrating honorable conduct, but jettison's the genre's stance that love only exists outside of marriage.

* ''Anime/DualParallelTroubleAdventure'' managed to give us all the Evangelion-esc action, without the Evangelion-esc drama and MindScrew.

* ''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 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.

** 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 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, though ironically this was a result of a plan rather than just winging it]]. 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 not 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.

* ''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.
