** Then in the short story Cold Case, set right after ''Literature/ColdDays'', where Mab informs Molly that all of the Winter Queens experience the same need for lust and power that the rest of their court goes through. Molly however as the Winter Maiden can't have sex while Mab the Winter Mother can. It's quite hypocritical to tell someone they have to have the same burden as everyone else when they're the only one that can't satisfy it. It's like saying everyone needs to take turns walking but only one of them never gets to rest because of reasons.

* Valerie of ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' claims to embrace her sect's ideals of equality and pacifism, but clearly considers those who were once noblemen to be more equal than others, and takes great liking to brutally policing the people under Garden's rule.

** The ''[[Literature/HaloGlasslands Kilo]]-[[Literature/HaloTheThursdayWar Five]] [[Literature/HaloMortalDictata Trilogy]]'': The main human characters, including ONI head Admiral Parangosky, universally condemn Dr. Halsey's role in the SPARTAN-II program as abhorrent, specifically the part where children were kidnapped and transformed into super soldiers, with doomed-to-die clones taking their original place. However, Parangosky not only approved of everything Halsey did, but worked with Colonel Ackerson to do the virtually same thing with the [=Spartan-IIIs=], by taking orphaned children from glassed planets and deliberately sending them on suicide missions; while Halsey genuinely cares about her Spartans and made sure they had all the tools needed to survive, Parangosky considered the [=IIIs=] as expendable commandos (in ''Literature/HaloGhostsOfOnyx, she even mocks Halsey as being a "bleeding-heart"). It's hinted that Parangosky mostly scapegoated Dr. Halsey to cover the rest of ONI's ass (herself included). Topping this off, the members of ONI unit Kilo-Five all consider Halsey to be the devil as well, but have considerably less problem working for Parangosky.

* ''[[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.
* ''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.

* The Pharisees from Literature/TheBible. They adamantly enforce Old Testament law yet they broke a lot of rules so they can have Jesus arrested.

to:

* The Pharisees from Literature/TheBible. They adamantly enforce Old Testament law yet they broke a lot of rules so they can have Jesus arrested. Jesus spends half the gospels calling them out on this, often painting them as an example of a person who acts like they're HolierThanThou but is really a sinner hiding behind a facade of holiness.

* Catherine Dollanganger in Creator/VCAndrews Literature//DollangangerSeries (to be fair, not until the final book of the series), in spades. She carries on an [[BrotherSisterIncest affair with her brother Chris]], yet blasts her son Bart and daughter-in-law Melodie (who is married to Bart's brother Jory) for their adulterous affair. In response, Bart (who frequently cavorts with other married women as well) sneeringly reminds her "what I do with Melodie is far less sinful that what you do with Chris". Similarly, youngest daughter Cindy is constantly reprimanded for her promiscuity by both her mother and her brother Bart (to the point of verbal and physical abuse), when she's neither related to nor cheating on/with any of the guys she's involved with.
