* Jolee Bindo from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' is an interesting example, he purposefully acts like a stereotypical Grumpy Old Man because he finds humor in it and (jokingly?) thinks youth expects him to act like it.
** Or he really is a Grumpy Old Man, but just happens to be really GenreSavvy about it. That's the beauty of his character.

* One of Mike's personalities from ''TotalDrama Revenge of the Island'', Chester, is an old man who complains and talks about his youth, never mind the fact that Mike is a teen.

Added DiffLines:

* Hector from ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' hates just about everything and is often cited as one of the oldest lemurs living in the kingdom. He has a low tolerance for the kinds of hijinks that go on in the kingdom and is often the first to bail out with a [[CatchPhrase "Nope, we're not doing this."]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': If Trond finds an excuse to complain about something, he'll take that's including calling the two pieces of blackmail he used to help the expedition "wasted", despite the fact that it was his own decision to use them to resolve unforeseen emergencies in the first place.

* The program ''GrumpyOldMen'', which is devoted to real-life grumpy old celebrities complaining about stuff.



* Peo Persson from ''{{Vintergatan}}'', every installment -- though he lightens up off-work, and with his wife. Of course, his wife is [[DistressedDamsel frequently kidnapped]], so this isn't often. He has become less of this later, though, instead becoming more of a jaunty old man.
