* The demo for "Cabinet Battle #3" in ''Music/TheHamiltonMixtape'' centers around hypocrisy, describing the Founding Father's apathy towards slavery despite their dedication to freedom. The only one who tries to have a serious discussion about it is Hamilton, who tries to besmirch Jefferson's name by accusing him of having an affair with one of his slaves. The irony is even Hamilton is being hypocritical in this debate, [[spoiler:since he was having an affair of his own, something Jefferson knows and uses to force Hamilton to end the discussion]].

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 more 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]]. Lying that propagates hypocrisy is apparently a worse crime than tons of conscious KickTheDog actions.

* UsefulNotes/{{Plagiarism}}: No published work has ''ever'' sprung from an immaculate vacuum and [[ItsBeenDone there's nothing new under the sun]], but claiming someone else's work as your own is just a low, despicable thing to do.
