* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Various characters have their moments, but a few from Katniss stand out. One being that she judges Madge for having an expensive pin that could feed starving families, yet isn't bothered when she herself is later clad in incredibly expensive outfits. There's also her judgement of fellow tributes because of their killing, when she doesn't make any attempt to restrain her own killing -- on a few occasions, she even mentions how her fingers are itching for her knife/arrows just because Johanna snapped at her. She also complains a great deal about the wasting of food, when she, in fact, does it herself (when she threw out the gift of cookies from Peeta's father, for example). ** Some of this might be justified, though. For one, her expensive clothes were given as a result of being in/winning the games, after which she was helping her starving neighbors more directly with her wealth. She also only ever killed (at first) in defense, though she might have become a bit hardened later (and Johanna ''is'' a particulary unpleasant Jerkass). Last, she threw out the cookies because it would be harder to kill Peeta with such a kindness on her mind, and besides, where she was going, a few cookies wouldn't be missed by anyone.

* In the ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'' series, [[ManipulativeBitch Senna]] tries to give David, Jalil, April, and Christopher to [[NorseMythology Hel.]] After the whole thing is said and done, they all give Senna crap for it, but she brushes it off with a really weak IDidWhatIHadToDo type excuse. Five books later, Senna's mother tries to give Senna to Merlin in order to make it so that Loki, Ka Anor, and the other gods can't use her as a Gateway and invade the real world. Senna [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness completely]] [[NotSoStoic loses]] [[EmotionlessGirl her]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech composure]].

* One of the defining traits of Hazel in ''TheFaultInOurStars''. She spends a lot of time criticizing others for how they speak to cancer patients and how they react to details of their lives and any number of other things only to speak, think and react the exact same way herself in other situations - sometimes even saying outright [[WallBanger that it's okay when she does it]]. When the antagonist (the author of her favourite book) shows up he is portrayed as a complete jerk but he behaves exactly like Hazel and Gus except he behaves that way towards ''them''.

** Although, to be fair, in the case of the final example, the Lizards see sex as just another bodily function, which they engage in indiscriminately during mating season. It simply didn't occur to them that there could be a race for which sex, and one's choice of partner, actually meant something.

* The eponymous villain of ''[[Literature/SpaceMarineBattles Mortarion's Heart]]'' uses psyker powers extensively while mocking the "little witches", i.e. Grey Knights order. ''Literature/HorusHeresy'', set ten millenniums earlier, shows that he's always had that problem.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' ''Kilo Five Trilogy'', the ONI characters call Dr. Halsey's methods of kidnapping children at a young age to turn them into SPARTAN II's as abhorrent. However ONI's leader Admiral Parangosky and Colonel Ackerson, do the same thing with their SPARTAN III's, by taking orphaned children from glassed planets. The difference is Halsey really cares about her Spartans and acts as a surrogate mother to them. While the later two basically consider their Spartans as expendable commandos. Parangosky mostly scapegoated Dr. Halsey as petty revenge.

* ''[[Literature/HaloHuntersInTheDark Halo: Hunters in the Dark]]'': [[spoiler:000 Tragic Solitude]] claims that the people of the modern galaxy are a violent, hopeless case, unlike his ideal image of the Forerunners. Olympia Vale reminds him that the Forerunners most likely went through the ''[[NotSoDifferent exact same thing]]'' in their millions of years of development.
