%%* LewisBlack, full stop.
* BillyCrystal used to do routines based on his own grandfather, talking about the Bad Old Days ("Happiness? What happiness? We were miserable, and we loved it, goddammit!"). Listening to the routine, it's clear that he based Miracle Max off of this character.

* SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' is far too happy to criticize [[BreakingTheFourthWall newfangled video games]] with their fancy graphics and scrolling screens and controllers with way too many (in his opinion) buttons. Manuals for the first couple of ''Donkey Kong Country'' games explain that he refuses to go adventuring, despite his experience and wisdom (instead giving hints or selling useful items to the playable Kongs -- while insulting them every step of the way), because of his grumpy old ape-ness, but after getting kicked out of his home in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryTropicalFreeze'' he apparently gets over it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda:'' Drack, who at the ripe old age of sixteen hundred and counting, is very much aware of this trope and embraces it (except when he's actually being a CoolOldGuy), especially at the end of his loyalty mission when his would-be grandson in-law and Ryder try being supportive about Drack's low opinion of himself.
-->'''Vorn:''' You're not worthless, Drack.\\
'''Drack:''' We are ''not'' having this conversation!\\
'''Ryder:''' I dunno, he's got a point.\\
'''Drack:''' I hate you all. Shut up and let me be old and cranky in peace.

* Walter Matthau and George Burns played a pair of [[GrumpyOldMen Grumpy Old Borscht-belt Comedians]] who despise each other in ''Film/TheSunshineBoys.'' But they used to be a partner act, and they're coerced into reuniting for a television special. Grumpy HilarityEnsues, of course.

The old guy who loves to complain about how things were better in his day, and that kids these days show no respect. The Grumpy Old Man (or woman, this isn't gender exclusive) is similar to a SadistTeacher, but old and not usually in direct authority over the youngsters. May possess unexpected wisdom but is likely to just complain about the young whippersnappers walking on his lawn, [[SelfDemonstratingArticle damn young'uns, no respect, don't know how good they have it.]] In my day we had to walk [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} fifteen miles]] through the snow to get to school, uphill [[LogicBomb both ways]]! And we didn't complain, nosir, we were ''happy'', and we got a dime a year to work 17 hours a day in the mines, [[InflationNegation one cent an hour]], but did we complain? '''NO!''' [[WhenIWasYourAge We were]] ''[[WhenIWasYourAge satisfied]]'', [[WhenIWasYourAge dammit, because there was a]] ''[[TheGreatDepression depression]]'' [[WhenIWasYourAge going on, and we didn't dare complain when dad beat us,]] [[MiseryBuildsCharacter because it built character]] [[WhenIWasYourAge and we]] ''[[WhenIWasYourAge respected]]'' [[WhenIWasYourAge him for it, not like these days ]]
