* 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 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.

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 is apparently a worse crime than tons of conscious KickTheDog actions.

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', the famous quote [[Administrivia/BrevityIsWit "Brevity is the soul of wit"]] is delivered by Polonius, the biggest OldWindbag in theatre history. He seriously never shuts up.
** Also from ''Hamlet''; the whole plot of the play involves Hamlet trying to get vengeance for his father's murder. Despite how enraged he is about his father's murder, when he himself murders the totally innocent Polonius, Hamlet has the gall to ''[[MoralDissonance crack jokes about it]]''.
