The main Deconstruction page clearly says that "Note that while deconstructions often end up darker, edgier, sadder and more cynical than the normal version, with the deconstructive process often producing catharsis or seeming satirical by revealing the Fridge Horror inside a given instance of Trope, there is no reason they have to be."

However, in this very wiki, every single Deconstruction trope treats it as a purely dark and cynical way to play with a trope. This is a list of examples of positive Deconstructed tropes that aren't Reconstructions.
