** Harald Karstark sided with the Boltons because the Starks killed his father. Yet, he is not bothered in the slightest when Ramsay murders his own father Roose who also avenged Harald's father. He also sided with the Boltons who were allied with the Lannisters, whom his father had a hostile hatred of and would have never sided with any house allied with them. Not to mention that he doesn't seem to remember or care that the Boltons' Lannister allies killed his brothers, with Jaime Lannister himself having murdered Torrhen in cold blood. Combined with his cold demeanor, it really makes you wonder what his relationship with Torrhen and Harrion was like...

** When TheUnfavorite child of the Camden family Mary announces her marriage to Carlos to her family, they talk about it amongst themselves and say the marriage will probably be problematic because Mary and Carlos "are from different backgrounds, languages, religions". Not only is Carlos a man who happens to be from Puerto Rican descent but speaks English perfectly[[note]]Plus, he's turned his life around from being homeless before, and seems to be actually more mentally stable than fickle Mary.[[/note]], but the Camdens never objected to other people of different ethnicities being together before - [[UnfortunateImplications apparently that's o.k. ''as long as it's not '''my''' children''... They also apparently now deem Catholics not Christians]], [[DoubleStandard while other daughter Lucy herself also married a man who was Catholic]].

** Brienne tells Stannis she's killing him in the name of Renly the rightful King... even though Stannis clearly had more right to the throne then Renly, and if he hadn't killed Renly, Renly probably would have killed him.
** Later, Brienne tells Sansa not to trust Davos for supporting Stannis and cites the fact he wasn't with Stannis to show his disloyalty. However, Davos was away on Stannis' orders and by this logic Brienne was disloyal to Catelyn for not being with her when she was murdered. In fact, she comes across as worse by this logic, as rather then remaining to protect Sansa she went off to murder Stannis and it was only luck that enabled her to save Sansa.

%%** Buffy, dear god, Buffy.
%%** Willow as well.
%%** Or Xander for that matter. This is the guy who stuck it in Buffy's face how angry he was at her for withholding information after the gang discovered she'd been hiding a recently revived Angel, even though he [[NeverLiveItDown infamously]] lied to her about Willow's message at the end of the previous season.
%%*** That isn't the same as Angelus was still a clear and present threat and Buffy was already on the fence about finish him off. The fact that Xander didn't like him was irrelevant.

to:

%%** Buffy, dear god, Buffy.
%%**
** Buffy is one on multiple levels:
*** During season 6, she attempts to talk Dark
Willow as well.
%%** Or Xander for that matter. This is
down by getting her to focus on the guy who stuck it positives in life, but Willow promptly shoots her down with a BreakingSpeech, pointing out all of Buffy's face how angry he self-destructive habits during the season, as well as the fact that Buffy herself freely admitted that she finds it so difficult to be alive.
*** In season 5, shows compassion and empathy for Warren's sex-bot April, but later views the Buffybot, who
was at designed by Warren for Spike for a similar purpose, as nothing but an "[[ItIsDehumanizing it]]."
*** When Willow goes dark, Buffy insists on helping
her for withholding and talking her down, but when Anya, now a vengeance demon again, kills several people in granting a wish, Buffy jumps right to MurderIsTheBestSolution; when Xander points this out, Buffy replies that it's not the same thing [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman because Willow is human and Anya is a demon]]. In the same conversation, she states that when it comes to demons, she is the law and her word and judgment is absolute, when previously, she specifically told Faith that Slayers ''aren't'' the law or [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers above it]].
** Xander is also a hypocrite in more ways than one:
*** In season 3, he's furious that Buffy knew that Angel had come BackFromTheDead and withheld the
information after from the gang discovered she'd been hiding a recently revived Angel, even though others, when he [[NeverLiveItDown infamously]] lied himself had deliberately neglected to her about Willow's message at tell Buffy that Willow was planning to curse Angel with a soul again in the end of season 2 finale to ensure that Buffy ''would'' kill him.
*** He also has a relationship with Anya, a former demon, whilst looking down on Buffy's relationship with Angel because Angel is a vampire. As Angel has a soul and regrets
the previous season.
%%*** That isn't the same as
things Angelus was still a clear and present threat and did, he is really just as moral as Anya is. This gets magnified when he yells at Buffy was already for wanting to kill Anya, who is back on the fence about finish a vengeance demon killing spree, and she reminds him off. The fact that Xander didn't like him was irrelevant. she killed Angel to save the world.

* ''Series/AllMyChildren'': In 1997, Erica Kane kidnapped Maria Santos' baby out of vengeance (she believed the child was the result of an adulterous fling between Maria and her husband Dimitri) before finally returning her out of remorse and guilt. Already a demonstration of Erica's hypocrisy--''many'' of Erica's relationships, including that with Dimitri, consisted of her being the other woman and/or cheating on her husband/boyfriend--Erica conveniently forgot what she did to Maria when she repeatedly blasted Babe for doing the same thing to her daughter Bianca.

to:

* ''Series/AllMyChildren'': ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': A constant theme with the villains.
** [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E12WhoYouReallyAre Season 2 episode 12: "Who You Really Are:"]] When Mack finds out about Fitz and Skye keeping [[spoiler:Skye's powers a secret]], he says "Secrets don't help any of us." This from the guy who is hiding the fact that he is [[spoiler:working for a rival faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. to usurp Coulson]].
** Throughout season 2, the "real" S.H.I.E.L.D. insists on transparency among its leadership and blames the whole HYDRA debacle on Fury's secret-keeping. This comes from an organization even ''more'' unknown than the above-ground S.H.I.E.L.D. that Coulson is running, and which is actively trying to undermine Coulson without having to confront him personally. They also criticize Coulson for how he has been running things and feel like he hasn't been doing his job properly, when as far as we know they've done nothing to help fight HYDRA (their moles notwithstanding) and seem more concerned with reining Coulson in than actually helping the world. The fact that they call themselves the real S.H.I.E.L.D. is also fairly hypocritical when they more or less acknowledge that Fury turned over power to Coulson (they may not know Fury's alive, but they know Fury gave Coulson the Toolbox). Hunter is quick to lampshade all of this.
** [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E16Afterlife Season 2 episode 16: "Afterlife:"]]
*** Gonzales, head of "real" S.H.I.E.L.D. He talks about how Coulson cannot be trusted because he is acting like a fugitive when it was his own coup that turned Coulson into a fugitive in the first place. He later makes a long speech to May about how S.H.I.E.L.D. cannot stand divided at a time like this, even though he's the one refusing to work with Coulson. May even threw this same point in his face when she said they should both be fighting HYDRA, which he ignored. He also disregards input from others despite the fact that he claims "Real" S.H.I.E.L.D. runs on democratic principle and makes it clear that his offer to May was done only because he has to abide by those rules rather than because he actually wants to.
*** A minor case with Skye; she kept ranting about how Raina couldn't be trusted because she's killed people. Jiaying called her out on this by saying that she was just as capable of killing as Raina, though the fact that Raina did so far more maliciously and by choice rather than necessity as Skye did, not to mention the laundry list of other crimes she committed, is glossed over.
** [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E19TheDirtyHalfDozen Season 2 episode 19: "The Dirty Half Dozen:"]]
*** When May tells Coulson off about all the secrets he's been keeping from her, he fires back that she kept him in the dark about his resurrection.
*** For all his talk of transparency, Gonzales gets put on the spot by Coulson when the latter mentions the dangerous cargo the ''Iliad'' is carrying. It's not clear just how much Gonzales has told his own branch about it, but he's nevertheless shocked that Coulson knows of it.
*** Gonzales (again) justifies potentially getting Coulson's entire team killed because their enemy has no honor. Says the man stabbing fellow agents in the back, as Bobbi calls him on, and plans to betray Coulson as soon as it's convenient.
*** Gonzales for the third time this episode: He's been suspecting Coulson of recruiting and stockpiling superhumans for a personal agenda the entire time, yet when Skye, Lincoln, and Deathlok make it back to the Playground, Gonzales plans to hold them prisoner so he can learn the location of even more superhumans. He even goes so far as to admit that the only reason he endorsed the mission was because he'd be able to take them prisoner if Coulson succeeded.
** [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS4E5Lockup Season 4 episode 5: "Lockup:"]]
*** Director Mace's CatchPhrase is "The team that trusts, triumphs." Mace seems to miss the fact that his continuous security screenings of Simmons at the very least provides the impression that he doesn't trust her, which is why nobody on Team Coulson trusts him.
----> '''Jeffrey:''' A team that trusts is a team that triumphs. But trust must be earned with random non-invasive testing.
*** There's also Nadeer, who accuses S.H.I.E.L.D. of working with criminals, one of whom (Robbie, to be exact) she calls a "cold-blooded killer", while she herself is working with The Watchdogs, an organization of murderous criminals.
** [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS4E6TheGoodSamaritan Season 4 episode 6: "The Good Samaritan:"]] Mace chews out Coulson for not keeping him the loop, but it falls flat since he himself frequently keeps his agents in the dark about his plans.
** [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS4E11WakeUp Season 4 episode 11: "Wake Up:"]] Nadeer again, when she accuses S.H.I.E.L.D. of taking the law into their own hands. Ignoring the fact that that is arguably S.H.I.E.L.D.'s ''job'' in the first place, Nadeer herself is funding an extrajudicial terrorist group.
