** The Marauders ([[spoiler: save for Peter Pettigrew]], who wasn't much of a rebel as he was a hanger-on). In their schooldays, they were some of Hogwarts' most notorious pranksters and illegally became underage Animagi [[spoiler: to keep Lupin company during his werewolf transformations]]. [[spoiler: Then there's the trouble the Maruders got in because of James' animosity with Snape.]] James settled down and got married to Lily, while Lupin became the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, [[spoiler: albeit temporarily]]. And [[spoiler: Sirius Black, despite his incarceration and RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Peter]]... well, two out of four ain't bad.

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has Solas, a professorial mage who alludes to being far more HotBlooded and fight-happy in his youth. In the most extreme case thus far, he turns out to be [[spoiler: Fen'Harel / the Dread Wolf, an ancient eleven rebel now remembered as a trickster god.]]

* 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.
** [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII The sequel]] has Sebastian, who drank and whored so much in his teen years that his family forced him into a monastery, where he [[HeelFaithTurn found religion]].

* 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.[[note]]Given as a BluntYes in the parliamentary hearing, which you can watch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOGNqEo9FF4 here]][[/note]] When elected to the Bundestag in 1983, he was famous for his confrontational debating style, including one famous exchange in which he told the President of the Bundestag "''Mit Verlaub, Herr Präsident, Sie sind ein Arschloch.''" ("[[WithAllDueRespect With respect]], [[SophisticatedAsHell Mr. President, you are an asshole]].") In 1985, he left federal politics to became the Minister of Environment of his home state of Hesse--but he still had some of his old spirit, appearing 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.

* Reki from ''Anime/HaibaneRenmei'' was rebellious during her teens due to receiving FantasticRacism related to [[spoiler:her off-colour wings]]. She even tried to [[TheRunaway run away]]. As an adult, she's a kind-hearted TeamMom, though she keeps some old habits such as [[SmokingIsCool smoking often]]. [[spoiler:Double subverted as, while her behavior changed, she's still a BrokenBird who just learned to [[StepfordSmiler be more friendly looking]]. Her decision to become friendlier was for selfish reasons of trying to [[HeavenSeeker reach salvation]], though she ended up BecomingTheMask.]]

** In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', Ariel often went up to the ocean's surface, despite knowing full well that her father forbade it because she thought he was being unreasonable and overprotective. Come ''TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'', Ariel's own daughter Melody [[GenerationXerox does the very same thing]] (going into the sea when she knows it's forbidden), and Ariel becomes angry and scolds her when Melody reveals she did so. In both cases, it's about parents worrying for their children.

* A plot line in season one of ''Series/VeronicaMars'' made use of this trope, when students in Neptune High paid PI in training Veronica to "dig up dirt" on their parents. Each of the students who came to Veronica came to find the trope was true about all of their strict parents, and their spotty records include reckless driving, Vegas weddings and wet t-shirt contests.
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': In the first season, Regina, the Evil Queen, is a very strict and harsh towards her adoptive son Henry, to the point of {Gaslighting}} him. Little did he know then that in her youth she used to run away from her own evil mother, The Queen of Hearts, and was quite the RebelliousPrincess.
