* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Emerald]]'', Maxie, the leader of Team Magma, calls out Archie, the leader of Team Aqua, for awakening Kyogre and causing heavy rainfall that will flood the continents, even though his team awakened Groudon to expand the world's landmass. He then admits to the protagonist that he has no right to be critical of Archie, but but asserts that this is beyond the matter of who is to blame and that stopping the two legendaries is their top priority at this point.

It should be noted that, in logic and debate at least, hypocrisy isn't a factor in whether a person is right or wrong. The "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_quoque Ad Hominem Tu Quoque]]" fallacy (also known as the "Appeal to Hypocrisy") is a logical error; just because a person is being a hypocrite about something doesn't of necessity make them wrong about it.

* When Jagged Peak from ''Literature/WarriorCats'' runs without looking where he was going, Gray Wing scolds him for it...before doing it himself by accident. He realizes he's being a hypocrite and resolves on not becoming one.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' seems to be an elaborate parody of the commercialised glorification of "gangsta life" in modern culture. The Saints, originally a street gang led by the player character with increasingly omnicidal tendencies, have become an established brand name complete with clothing stores, an energy drink, a movie about their life, and random fangirls asking for your autograph or snapping pictures of you after you turn a busy intersection into a pile of corpses and burning car wrecks. Even the Saints themselves realise they sold out. Of course, the game itself is a commercialised glorification of gangsta life and provides you with weaponry specifically intended to express your own omnicidal tendencies. This duality seems to be intentional.

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': Future Zamasu grows to hate mortals and believes that their [[FinalSolution complete destruction]] will create a utopia. Yet, he ends up allying himself with Goku Black, the EvilTwin of the very mortal [[TheHero Son Goku]]. Zamasu acknowledges the inconsistency in one sentence and just moves on with his plan.

Yet, he ends up allying himself with Goku Black, the EvilTwin of the very mortal [[TheHero Son Goku]]. Zamasu acknowledges the inconsistency in one sentence and just moves on with his plan. Not only that, but Goku Black is actually [[spoiler: an alternate version of Zamasu from the mainstream timeline, who became so fixated on the real Goku after being defeated by him that he used the Dragon Balls to [[GrandTheftMe steal his body]].]]
** Later, Zamasu and Goku Black end up using [[FusionDance the Potaras]] to fuse together, with the resulting Fusion Zamasu continuing to spew hate at mortals despite the fact that one of his fusees ''is'' mortal. Fusion Zamasu freely admits this, and states that it was intentional on his part; as far as he's concerned, [[spoiler: Goku is everything selfish and evil about mortals, and he took Goku's body so he'd never forget the gods' mistakes and failures.]]
