* In [[DeadToRights Dead to Rights Retribution]], [[CowboyCop Jack Slate]] calls the [[PoliceBrutality G.A.C.]] JudgeJuryAndExecutioner. He's not quite wrong, but in terms of PoliceBrutality (Case in point, his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bA3Uj6XtnI takedown]] moves.) he's at least as bad as them, if not worse.

* Franchise/KingdomHearts's Master Xehanort claims to seek [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil Balance Between Light and Darkness]], deeming pro-Light-ers like his ex-ally Eraqus too "absolute." But Xehanort himself's clearly pro-Darkness, and not only do his plans just help the Realm of Darkness and harm the Realm of Light--consequently making said pro-Light-ers ProperlyParanoid--but he has no qualms saying Darkness can't die while vowing his foes' Light will.

*** By the end of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', Big Boss has firmly cemented himself as one. [spoiler: That is to say, the original Big Boss, and not Venom Snake. After defecting from the Patriots for cloning him without his consent for the purpose of making the ultimate soldier, he does the exact same thing to one of his own men by means of robbing him of his past identity in order to turn him into a body double. In spite of singing a lot of hypocritical purple poetry about creating a nation whereby soldiers will not be abused by their governments, he takes advantage of an innocent soldier's loyalty and ruins his life, becoming the kind of manipulator that he started his private military to get away from.]]

** Loghain Mac Tir always froths in moral outrage at the mere mention of Orlais because of how it "enslaved" Ferelden decades before the events of the story, and uses it to justify most of more morally questionable actions. But as regent he sold the City Elves into literal slavery. If called out on it by the player, he'll try to justify it with his usual "I Did What I Had to Do to save Ferelden" line, neatly glossing over the fact that the elves are citizens of Ferelden. Instead of showing remorse, he is dismissive and contemptuous, and even has the audacity calling a City Elf player ''egotistical'' for not instantly getting over it.

* Many of the faction leaders in ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri''. Santiago pulls a lot of strings to protect her sickly weakling of a son despite being a firm advocate of TheSpartanWay, Zakharov often conducts horrifying experiments in secret despite his vocal support for freedom of information, and Deidre's avowed [[TechnicalPacifist pacifism]] doesn't get in the way of her [[DeadlyEuphemism "declaring vendetta"]] against other factions or outright weaponizing the Planet's killer fauna when she feels they need to learn a GreenAesop.

** The Salarian Dalatrass Linron refuses to accept the idea of the Krogan being cured because she sees the Krogan as only violent because the Salarians uplifted them to be that way. She refuses to admit that the Krogan rebelled because the Salarians used them liked tools.
[[spoiler:And she is also planning to uplift the Yahg, which are far more dangerous than the Krogan.]]

*** The Casteless Dwarves are considered rejects and a stain on Orzammar society. Yet the Nobles would not hesitate using the Cartas' skills in subterfuge for their own ends. And the Male Nobles would not hesitate to lay with a Noble Hunter to increase their House.

** During companion dialogue Morrigan flirts with Sten a bit. If you are in a romance with Morrigan, Sten will remind her that she is with you, to which she replies that she belongs to no one and that you probably wouldn't mind. Yet if you are also in a romance with Leliana or Zevran, she will be mad at you for cheating on her.
