* ''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.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the [[TheSpymaster Spymaster]] of the Blades in Morrowind and primary QuestGiver for the first act of the main quest, Caius Cosades, is one. Possibly [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], in that its difficult to tell how much this is Caius' actual personality and how much is him PlayingDrunk[=/=]ObfuscatingInsanity in his cover identity as a senile [[FantasticDrug Skooma addict]]. He will [[BerserkButton go quite berserk]] if you mess up on his quests and the other Blades call him "sour" and "a worrier" when asked. Despite this, he does [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold obviously care about]] the PlayerCharacter.

* ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Absalom the Chaos Space Marine from Da Real Wurld 40K. Makes sense, he's pretty much the oldest character in the comic who doesn't look like a hot chick. His hobbies include gardening, which was suggested by his therapist to curb his anger issues. For God's sake, don't mess up his garden.

* [[OneFootInTheGrave Victor Meldrew]] is a particularly spectacular example of this (though he is somewhat more sophisticated about it than most), and [[TheChewToy he does at least usually have a good reason for being upset about everything.]]

* Long Beards in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''. Their special ability allows units to reroll a morale test to prevent their grumpy leers and words of "told you so".

to:

* Long Beards Longbeards in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''.''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''. Longbeards are dwarfs who are so old their beards are now longer than they are. Longbeards are famous for constantly remarking on how everything was back in their day; Orcs were bigger, goblins sneakier, ale stronger, packs heavier... Their special ability allows units to reroll a morale test to prevent their grumpy leers and words of "told you so".

* 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.
