** Danzo always claimed that shinobi should be willing to sacrifice themselves for their village, but he was always too afraid to do the same. Unlike the other examples, Danzo was aware of his own hypocrisy and hated himself for not being brave enough to practice what he preached.

** Danzo always claimed that shinobi should be willing to sacrifice themselves for their village, but he was always too afraid to do the same. Unlike the other examples, Danzo was aware of his own hypocrisy and hated himself for not being brave enough to practice what he preached. Of course, his other actions and their effects on the world make him so monstrous in the end that no one really cares and is soon forgotten after his death.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' - Gjallahorn spreads propaganda against cybernetic modification, to the point that they don't consider people who have had the Ālaya-Vijñāna implanted to be human. Then they convert one of their own soldiers into a cybernetic abomination that makes the Ālaya-Vijñāna look positively tame in comparison. The Gjallahorn soldiers who witness said abomination in action are horrified and even call it a devil. [[spoiler:Invoked by [=McGillis=], who wanted to make Gjallahorn look bad to the public to destabilize it and reveal its corruption. All part of his plan to take over Gjallahorn so he can ostensibly reform it.]]

* ''Manga/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'': Belle gets concerned about Xion going with Roxas to go fight Heartless, since she's an unarmed little girl. Cogsworth immediately points out that Belle was just going around Beast's Castle hunting Heartless herself, and she's less qualified.

** The World Government is a bunch of hypocrites in every sense of the world. A phrase they love to use is "Absolute Justice" which means using an "eye for an eye" approach to punishing criminals. But they consider themselves except in several ways:

** The [[TheEmpire World Government Government]] is a bunch of hypocrites in every sense of the world. A phrase they love to use is "Absolute Justice" which means using an "eye for an eye" approach to punishing criminals. But they consider themselves except in several ways:



*** Most notably, the World Government often recruits powerful and influential criminals (specifically pirates) to become their allies, such as the Seven Emperors. The government pardons all the past crimes committed by these pirates, along with any other criminals who work directly under them, and allow them continue their illegal activities (to an extent), willing to look the other way simply to maintain their hold on society's faith in the strength of "justice".

** The World Government is a bunch of hypocrites in every sense of the world. A phrase they love to use is "Absolute Justice" which means using an "eye for an eye" approach to punishing criminals. But they consider themselves except in several ways:
*** For instance, they claim "unawareness" of the still existing slavery (despite "abolishing" it over two centuries ago, it still exists due to the World Nobles), making any form of Justice that the Marines claim to have hypocritical since slavery and its practices are ultimately the antithesis of justice.
*** Also, they often ignore the concept of "justice" altogether and the term can sometimes be as questionable as the morals that drive their opinion of 'Justice'. Because of all this the people who follow Absolute Justice can be seen just as bad, or even worse, than the criminals. The Battle of Marineford is a good example, where the Marines refused to give up and continued fighting the pirates, even though their goal had been achieved.

** Ed, Winry, and Al believe that Scar should be punished for the murders that he committed against Amestrians, but are more hesitant to believe that Mustang, Hawkeye, and the rest of the Amestrian soldiers should be punished for doing the same thing to Ishvalans.

Most of Scar's victims were State Alchemist, some that participated on his race's genocide, but the Amestrian soldiers killed ''thousands'' of Ishvalans, women and children including.

** During the Cell Saga, Goku's taken aback when Gohan deliberately prolongs his CurbStompBattle with Cell solely to humiliate him and make him suffer for his crimes and yells at him to finish Cell off. While Goku does make a valid point, he himself deliberately prolonged his own CurbStompBattle with Frieza for the ''exact same reason'', prioritizing Frieza's humiliation over escaping Namek before it exploded. At the same time, that can easily be explained as Goku learning from the experience, given that he almost didn't escape Namek's explosion because of his anger and need for vengeance, and knowing that if Cell was anything like Frieza, he wouldn't hesitate to destroy the Earth when backed into a corner.

** Neji enjoyed taunting those he viewed as weaker than him (Hinata, Lee and Naruto) by constantly telling them [[YouCantFightFate how pointless their efforts to change their fate were]], while at the same time refusing to accept his own fate.
