** 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 ComicBook/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.

And that is not counting that after Flashpoint saves him, in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' he creates [[LegionOfDoom a group]] in which he damages the timeline. In that other series, Thawne tells Ray Palmer that he is not as evil as historical monsters, but later [[Series/CrisisOnEarthX joins a group of Nazis]].
** Iris West scolds Barry and Joe for locking her out of the loop regarding Barry being The Flash. She has been hiding Wally West from Barry and Joe. Even she herself admits the hypocrisy later.
** In "Run, Iris, Run", Ralph Dibny accused Iris of hiding while the other teammates fight, but that was exactly what he was doing in this episode. He even said that [[ItsAllAboutMe he didn't care about the other possible victims]].

** Varys has a hard time defending how his bid to remove Robert a lazy and uninvolved ruler but one who provided peace and stability, and an improvement on the Mad King, with Viserys II, a cruel, stupid, and weak man fits with with his mantra about the "good of the Realm".

** On a third-season episode, Carol expresses ''disapproval'' when she finds out that Ross cheated on Rachel (although Ross insisted that it wasn't cheating because they were "on a break" at the time). This, despite the fact that Carol actually slept with Susan ''while she was still married to Ross.'' Nobody, not even Ross, seemed to find it hypocritical that Carol was taking Ross to task for doing something that she had previously done to him.

** Stella pressures Ted to move to New Jersey with her after they get married because she claims Manhatten to be a dangerous place to raise her daughter in. However, after [[RunawayBride she leaves him at the altar and gets back together with Tony]], she actually moves to Manhatten with him despite having refused to do the same for Ted. It gets even worse Tony gets a job in Los Angelos as a film writer[[note]] where he made ''Film/TheWeddingBride''[[/note]]. So moving into the city a few blocks down is bad for her child, but ''moving far across the country'' is okay?!
** Karen has cheated on Ted many times back in college, but when she finds an earring on his bed [[spoiler: planted by Lily to break them up]] she accuses ''him'' of cheating on ''her''.

* ''Series/HannahMontana'': In "You're So Vain You Probably Don't Realize This Zit Is About You", Lily loses her contacts and is embarrassed about having to wear her dorky glasses at the skateboard competition. Miley tries help Lily get over her fear by encouraging her that looks don't matter; however, when a company is about to produce a billboard of her alter-ego with a zit drawn on her forehead, Miley is so embarrassed she lies to Lily and tries to secretly cover up the zit before the billboard is produced instead of going through with her own advice. [[WhatTheHellHero Lily even calls her out on her selfishness.]]

** Upon meeting Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen tries to get him to bend the knee by citing the oath his ancestors made. The moment he replies with the atrocities her father committed, she asks him not to judge her by her father's sins. It's such a blatant show of hypocrisy that even Jon Snow himself hangs a lampshade on it immediately afterwards.

** Played for comedy in a season five episode where Ross is offended by Chandler's frequent flirting with other women even though he's dating Monica. Chandler plays it off as no big deal - until Monica agrees that it's not a big deal because she does it all the time.



** Lily is a major example. She always criticizes Ted for trying to get involved with her and Marshall whereas she tends to meddle in other people's love lives, such as [[RelationSabotage sabotaging many of Ted's past relationships]] and [[ClingyJealousGirl being extremely jealous of any girl who would flirt with Marshall.]] She also told Marshall to quit smoking when she refused to quit herself. She is annoyed by Barney's {{Jerkass}} tendencies even though she is somewhat of a jerkass as well, [[FalseInnocenceTrick always acting innocent in front of people]] only to backstab them later. [[NeverMyFault She never seems to learn from her actions and instead puts the blame on others.]]
