*** Gordon hates the way that inhumans are treated by the world, but not only is he intolerant of normal humans, he's just as intolerant of abnormal humans who got their powers by different means. Gordon tells Cal "you're not one of us, you're just a science experiment." Which ignores the fact that the inhumans are also a science experiment, the only difference is which planet the scientists are from.

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'': In "[[Recap/TheOuterLimits1995S5E7TheHumanOperators The Human Operators]]", the AI minds understandably rebelled on discovering they were human's slaves, but then enslave humans themselves to repair their systems, justifying all their mistreatment due to human "viciousness". This results in a [[{{Pun}} vicious circle]] as the human slaves rebel against them in return.

*** Possibly justified because Picard's main concern with the Crystalline Entity was that it might not have been aware that the people it was killing were sentient. The parasite queen knew exactly what she was doing and didn't care about hijacking the bodies of sentient beings.

* TheFlash2014:
** Eobard Thawne (in the guise of Professor Wells) gets upset when Barry changes the timeline (even though he only changes the events of one day and does it to save the city) and gives him a stern talking to about the dangers of time travel. This is coming from a man who traveled back over a hundred years in the past to kill TheFlash as a child because of a petty grudge (and settled on killing his mother when the attempt failed) and killed various other people afterwards (including the original Wells) in his attempt to get back to the future.

* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'':
** In one episode Niles convinces Daphne to invest with his advisor. The first tip paid off, then the others failed, but Niles lied to Daphne and said they all paid off because he liked the way she kissed and hugged him when he delivered good news. In the same episode, Frasier promised his girlfriend-of-the-week that he would endorse her book even though it was terrible. When Frasier busted Niles, Niles said Frasier was being just as dishonest. Frasier could have pointed out that holding back his negative opinion from an actual girlfriend out of fear that it would negatively impact the relationship was a far cry from using money (which Niles undoubtedly got from his rich wife) to turn a platonic friend into an unwitting G-rated prostitute. Yet for some reason the only difference Frasier could come up with was "Your girl is English."

* {{Series/Quantico}}: Has a habit of combining this with {{Straw Feminist}}.
** Miranda's superiors demote her after leading a botched operation with an untrained recruit which resulted in both agents and civilians being killed. Miranda goes to her boss with evidence that her successor slept with a recruit (a consenting adult, so no one complained about favorable or unfavorable treatment). When Miranda sees that he isn't going to be punished, she gives Alex a self-pitying speech about the glass ceiling.
** In Season 2, Vice President Claire Haas asks Shelby not to reveal her culpability in creating a group of rogue agents, saying that, as a woman, she'll be held to an unfair standard, while her past includes getting away with being in league with a terrorist (which everyone knew but couldn't prove).

*** He reminding Randyll Tarly that he had sworn an oath to the crown is kind of this considering that Jaime killed the king he sworn to defend (while he was right to do it, it doesn't change the fact he betrayed his oath) and is persuading him to serve a woman that murdered a king (Robert) and a queen (Margaery) and is responsible for the death of another (Tommen).

** Cersei defends her incest with Jaime as true love but starts bedding their cousin when he goes to war, resents Margaery for trying to be a power behind the throne like her, and insults Ellaria Sand for being a bastard even though her own children are secretly illegitimate.

** Cersei defends her Lannister:
*** She calls Margaery a harlot and a whore, despite herself having committed adulterous
incest with Jaime as true love but starts bedding their cousin when he goes to war, her brother. She also resents Margaery for manipulating the king and trying to be become a power behind the throne like her, her... which, unlike Cersei, Margaery would prove seemingly successful at.
*** So, Cersei defends her cheating on Robert with her brother Jaime as "true love" and her and Jaime "belonging together", adding too that her husband being an UnwantedSpouse who was whoring around himself, anyways? Fine... until Jaime goes to war and Cersei starts bedding a cousin behind her "true love's" back, as part of manipulating him to help kill her husband Robert.
*** Cersei is deeply offended that Tywin played favorites with his children, favouring the gifted Jaime. Cersei has no problem playing favorites by focusing on her firstborn son Joffrey. Myrcella and Tommen are pretty much ignored unless there is some setback on the horizon.
*** Cersei looks down on
and insults Ellaria Sand for being a bastard even though all three of her own children are secretly illegitimate.illegitimate and pretenders to both the throne and to her own House.
*** She deeply loves Tommen because he is her son, but shows little respect and concern for the actual individual, not thinking twice before undermining and manipulating him or before hurting the woman he loves because Cersei's powerplays come first. At most, she views herself as a WellIntentionedExtremist.
*** In Season 4, she accuses Tywin that once she is gone that he and Margaery would dig their claws into Tommen and fight over him until he would be ripped apart. Comes season 5, after Tywin's death, she constantly struggles with Margaery to manipulate Tommen, until he ends up killing himself after realizing that his mother's schemes ruined his chances of becoming a good king.
