* ''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.

* Valkenhayn .R. Hellsing of ''VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}'' is a profoundly loyal and unflinchingly polite BattleButler in his old age, but humorously, in his younger years, he was actually very little different from [[NinetiesAntiHero Ragna]].

* 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.

** Though "Boy Meets Curl" eventually retconned this by flash-backing to Mrs. Skinner pregnant with Seymour.

* JudasPriest's "Parental Guidance" veers in this direction toward the end: "There's no communication / I'm tired of explanation / Is this message getting through? / You went through the same thing, too!" (Since Rob Halford was [[ManChild already in his mid-thirties when he sang those lyrics]], the effect is doubly ironic.)

** When first introduced Faith was an EthicalSlut and BloodKnight who didn't mind if she had to ShootTheDog because Buffy wouldn't, such as whether or not Angel was good. After her FaceHeelTurn she became a male raping psychopath who killed and did wrong ForTheEvulz, and actually tried to be this to attempt suicide by vampire. After breaking out of prison she has become one of the nicest people in both series, a SergeantRock to younger Slayers, and had not only seemingly grown out of her bad habits such as drinking but she keeps others from doing so.

** In S2 Ep10 "Bush Comes To Dinner" then-President UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush brings this trope up to Stan after he angrily tells Hayley that she's a lost cause. Bush reveals that he was a very wild party boy when he was younger (which is TruthInTelevision) and that Hayley, due to her rebellious ways, is not a lost cause, but is on the track to becoming President of the United States.

* Kyouko Katsunuma from Manga/FruitsBasket was also an infamous [[JapaneseDelinquent girl gangster]] as a teenager, but [[BrokenBird that left her emotionally broken]]. She decided to put said DarkAndTroubledPast behind, married [[HotForTeacher her handsome teacher]] Kazuma Honda (who was also [[OnlyFriend the only one who cared for her]]), and became Kyouko Honda aka Tohru's beloved mother. (Well, [[MissingMom dead but much beloved mother]])

* The main characters' homeroom teacher Koumoto Akari from ''Manga/JitsuWaWatashiWa'' used to be the legendary delinquent known as "Akari of the Hundred Visit". This shows, her angry self (which is often, thanks to the troll of the headmaster) pretty much scares the living out of anyone else. One character even remarks that facing off against Godzilla would be preferable to an enraged Akari. Akari herself seems to treat her past as an OldShame and tries to hide it whenever possible.

* Creator/JackKerouac, whose semi-autobiographical novel ''Literature/OnTheRoad'' became a counterculture icon, ultimately became a political conservative and observant Catholic - albeit one still more than happy to partake in frequent recreational drug use. Stories tell of him getting smoking pot, watching the [=McCarthy=] trials on TV, and rooting enthusiastically against the communists. [[FridgeBrilliance The Communists would ban pot!]]

** Marty's mother, Lorraine Banes [=McFly=] in the [[Film/BackToTheFuture first film]]. We don't see much of her in the present, but when he goes back to [[TheFifties the 1950's]] Marty is definitely shocked to see her smoking and drinking. She also flirts with Marty and wants to [[AutoErotica park with him]], despite her assertion thirty years later that girls shouldn't chase boys and her insistence that she never did that kind of thing with a boy. Since Lorraine is a bit of [[TheAlcoholic an alcoholic]] even now, this could be a subversion.
