Does the Elfen Lied example really count? There's nothing about "having a cute, amnesiac, completely childish girl with no nudity taboos fall in your lap" that would in real life lead to all the Nightmare Fuel and Tear Jerker situations in Elfen Lied.

Nope. That seems like it's merely being played negatively, but that alone doesn't make a deconstruction. I'll remove that.

Okay, now I'm just confused about the Deconstructor Fleets in general. I think it's hard to understand why a creation is counted as Deconstructor Fleet without doing a small "research" (i.e reading, watching, playing etc) on it. That would be disorienting for non-fans and casual readers of this site.

So can someone explain now?

I moved this no-context example. I know this is a deconstruction of the knight errant genre, but I've never read it so I can't write the example.

I added an entry for the work of Grant Morrison under comic books. This is my first real edit, so I will be totally not offended if someone wants to expand on, add, or even get rid of, the entry. I believe that it qualifies as Deconstructor Fleet, but I could be wrong.

"Knights Of The Old Republic 2 is a deconstruction of both the Star Wars franchise and Role Playing Games. You don't see too many RPG-s that integrate game mechanics into their plot, resulting in... a main character who grows stronger by killing enemies and taking on challenges (therefore collecting XP)."

Hurr, what? That sounds like EVERY RPG.

There are way to many that are just examples, without explianing WHY they count as Deconstructor Fleets.

I agree. This Troper is now adding details to every example that he's familiar with and that lack them.

I really don't know if parodies like Scary Movie or Airplane qualify.

Okay, this is bugging me a bit... Does Final Fantasy *really* count as a Deconstructor Fleet? Yes, they've deconstructed a fair number of tropes, I'll grant you, but is it really enough to qualify?

Now, I haven't played IX or XII out of the post-SNES era, so maybe there's something in them that I'm missing, but I don't think the others qualify (as decent as they are). So... Yeah. Little help here?

I'd say XII and XIII are the closest the series gets to this. Others are fairly straightforward.
