Deconstruction research on the short story “Dongeng Rama and Sita” by Sapardi Djoko Damono (SDD) is intuitive on the Ramayana romance hipogram which was modified by C. Rajagopalachari. Rahwana, known as an antagonist, is portrayed by SDD as a hero and even her figure is the dream of every woman. This research reveals various forms of heroic deconstruction of the short story “Dongeng Rama dan Sita” By Saparadi Djoko Damono from the characterization of characters and events in the Ramayana story. The deconstruction theory used refers to Jacques Derrida. The contradiction of public opinion about events that have previously existed increasingly established the explanation of the imbalance of mindset that had been universally applied. The binary opposition is disputed and broken by the author by reversing Rahwana’s heroic facts asking Rama’s male permission to marry Sita, not a coward, Sita likes Rahwana because her figure is the dream of every woman. The results of research from the short stories of Rama and Sita Tales show victory not only belongs to Rama but also belongs to Rahwana.
