* Wynne in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has got a milder variation, she tells stories of a time when she was significantly more hot-headed and rebellious than she is today.

* Wynne in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has got a milder variation, she tells stories of a time when she was significantly more hot-headed and rebellious than she is today. As her DLC reveals Leliana had very little in the way of morals: theft (from the church no less,) seduction, murder, humiliating people, her mentor did a number on her all right. Far from the sweet and pious girl in the main game.

* This trope entire premise of ''Series/ThirtySomething''. The series' protagonists are a group of members of the 60's counter culture and peace movement turned 80's yuppies.

* A RealLife example is Johnny Depp, who was once a conceited, self-centered JerkAss young actor who openly dissed the Academy and Hollywood in general. After several arrests and the birth of his first child, Depp has "grown up" and become a serious and respected actor. The Academy doesn't seem willing to let him live it down, though.

* A common story with many hippies and flower children from the 1960's and 70's as well. After they grew up, got out of the hippie phase, and had kids of their own. They freaked out just like their own parents once the kids started into SexDrugsAndRocknRoll for themselves. They tried to differentiate their experiences from those of their kids, with the most common justification being that it was "just so much more innocent then."

* ''MetroidOtherM'' seems to show that Samus Aran might have been one of these. The Behind The Scenes trailer shows her former CO, Adam Malkovich, giving out orders, and while everyone else gives the thumbs up, she gives the thumbs down.

* WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}} and Ingrid are not even teen yets but otherwise fit the trope. As a throwback to a popular cliche in {{Cop Show}}s, the two used to be troublemakers until they both decided to stop. Now they're on their schools Safety Patrol.
* ''{{Daria}}'''s parents, Helen and Jake Morgendorffer, were 60's flower children, while in the present, Helen is a workaholic lawyer and Jake runs a successful business consulting firm. The Season 2 episode, "That was Then, This is Dumb", focuses on their old hippie friends, The Yeagers, who still haven't changed.

* German foreign minister (1998-2005) Joschka Fischer of the Green Party used to hang out with Daniel Cohn-Bendit (himself an example of this trope) and other left wing radicals in Frankfurt during the 1970s. He also beat up police and (in his own words) "Just threw stones in the air". He still had some of it left when he became a minister in the 1980s (for environment in the state of Hesse, the first time the Greens ever entered a government) and appeared in - gasp! - sneakers! Though if you believe his later statements the sneakers weren't his idea. His past caught up with him during his term in office when the conservative opposition held hearings into his violent acts he committed in the 1970s.

* Fischer's coalition partner Gerhard Schröder reportedly banged against the fence of the chancellor's office screaming "I want to be in there" in his "wild days". He was also a member of the left wing of his party in his youth, often clashing with the (more centrist) higher ups. Given his policies as chancellor, most notably the "Hartz reforms" [[note]]Basically the German version of "New Labour" or the Clinton administration, with an emphasis on cutting unemployment benefits[[/note]] it is quite likely that young Schröder would have hated the breathing guts of old Schröder.
