* In the ''ComicBook/{{JLA}}'' storyline "Tower of Babel", this is the reason why the ComicBook/MartianManhunter refuses to expel ComicBook/{{Batman}} from the team as he had done the exact same thing in ''ComicBook/JLAYearOne'' and regretted it and he felt it would be hypocritical if he expelled Bats for something he himself had done.

* {{Series/Quantico}}: Has a habit of combining this with {{Straw Feminist}}.
** Miranda's superiors demote her after leading a botched operation with an untrained recruit which resulted in both agents and civilians being killed. Miranda goes to her boss with evidence that her successor slept with a recruit (a consenting adult, so no one complained about favorable or unfavorable treatment). When Miranda sees that he isn't going to be punished, she gives Alex a self-pitying speech about the glass ceiling.
** In Season 2, Vice President Claire Haas asks Shelby not to reveal her culpability in creating a group of rogue agents, saying that, as a woman, she'll be held to an unfair standard, while her past includes getting away with being in league with a terrorist (which everyone knew but couldn't prove).

** During the ''Spider-Man and the X-Men'' miniseries, the majority of the X-Men are against the idea of the web-head [[ItMakesSenseInContext becoming a teacher at their school]], mostly because he isn't a mutant like them. Storm also cites Spider-Man's poor public image and his being wanted for arrest by the authorities. This seems pretty rich, considering the X-Men don't exactly have a spotless reputation (and were even branded as outlaws themselves for a time), and have often faced persecution from humans for being different. Spider-Man is quick to lampshade this:
-->'''Spider-Man:''' I never thought people living in a world that hates and fears them could be so [[BuffySpeak fearful and hate-y]].

** When Rachel Grey reads Spider-Man's mind and learns that he's Peter Parker, who at the time was head of Parker Industries, she immediately decides he's no better than the industrialists who built the Sentinels and the [[RestrainingBolt collars]] used to imprison mutants in her time, essentially showing the same kind of prejudice mutantkind have suffered from humans.

** ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} can be like this at times, and it's almost become his defining character trait post-Schism. Despite a body count too long to list and being the X-Men's go-to-guy for doing the dirty work none of the others are willing to do (Hell, the ''entire reason'' he was recruited onto the Avengers was to be the guy who killed), suddenly in Logan's mind Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} is wrong for doing the things the X-Men have done ''from their inception'' by training the younger mutants how to fight and defend themselves. It's meant to be a mark of his character development brought about by Rahne and [[ComicBook/{{X23}} Laura]] being on X-Force, but the way Logan demonizes Scott for the sorts of things he himself has done ''all his life'', particularly after the events of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' is hypocrisy at its finest.

Logan has almost ''always'' been a mentor to a younger female mutant since Kitty Pryde was introduced, and his school that he started ''right after'' breaking up the X-Men over this topic ''does that very thing''. It's meant to be a mark of his character development brought about by Rahne and [[ComicBook/{{X23}} Laura]] being on X-Force, but it comes across rather dickish that he demonises Cyclops over this despite Cyke ''being'' trained since he was a teen.

This is despite Logan having named ''his'' school the Jean Grey School for the sorts of things he himself has done ''all his life'', particularly Higher Learning, after a Cyke's dead wife who he obsesses over ''right in front'' of Cyclops ''and'' also killed in the events of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' is hypocrisy at its finest.past (and that ''wasn't'' in self-defense, though she did come back right after). Yeah, bit late to bring up what's proper once you do that.

Heroes are often accused of hypocrisy by villains who want to believe they're NotSoDifferent and brag AtLeastIAdmitIt. Heroes who actually ''are'' hypocrites tend to hear "WhatTheHellHero" quite a lot. ([[DesignatedHero Unless they don't.]]) Hypocrites, be they heroes or villains, often find themselves [[HateSink to be hated]] [[TheScrappy by the audience]] even more than the main ObviouslyEvil CardCarryingVillain, chiefly because they ''lied'' about their convictions, while [[VillainsNeverLie those evil villains come off]] [[AtLeastIAdmitIt pretty honest in what they do]]. This is usually because of the HolierThanThou implications that someone who publicly preaches about good things is signaling to other people that they are a good person (or are at least better than some others), and people feel cheated when that does not end up being the case.
