** when Franciene is upset with something Stan does she will go to ridiculous lengths to get him to stop this includes setting his mom up with Roger, openingly flirting with his coworker (she found out that Stan agreed to marry their dentist if she died before him) yet she is furious when Stan is upset with something and goes to the same extreme lengths. One of the more reoccurring instances of this the fact that she keeps spoiling their kids while admonishing Stan any time he tries to discipline them. Yet any time Stan tries to spend time for himself giving them free reign she calls him out for being selfish.

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', Valentine is perfectly okay with committing global genocide, as long as he's not directly witnessing it. He also genuinely feels awful about [[spoiler:shooting Harry]]... and goes on to say that, while he's not fine with killing anyone personally, he's fine with making them kill each other.

** On Alderaan, the various houses are absolutely convinced that the only people opposing them are pure evil. They will call you out on fighting to stop them from executing {{False Flag Operation}}s, torturing semi-sentient animals, and just plain disagreeing with them. Conversely, if you're a Jedi, the leaders will point out the hypocrisy of claiming that you're there to save someone's life after you just slaughtered all their guards.* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII'': Kreia frequently criticises the Jedi Order's teachings, accusing them of being set in their ways, arrogant and narrow minded. Of course, if you ever question''her'' teachings, you immediately lose influence with her, meaning she's just has narrow minded in her own way.

*** Mace call him out on the hypocrisy in the novelisation and Anakin doesn't have much of an answer. But then Anakin's reaction was less about morality and more that he needed Palpatine alive.

->'''Alexander The Great''': How dare you molest the seas?\\
'''Pirate''': How dare you molest the whole world? Because I do it with a small boat, I am called a pirate and a thief. You, with a great navy, molest the world and are called an emperor.

* Wrestling/HulkHogan (and just about every face wrestler during the WrestleMania era of the WWF): When they engaged in rulebreaking and the same behavior to defeat rulebreaking wrestlers, Wrestling/GorillaMonsoon usually portrayed it as "turnabout is fair play." Also, several male wrestlers beating up [[Wrestling/SherriMartel Sensational Sherri]] when she tried to interfere in Wrestling/RandySavage's matches. When the heels broke the rules, they would be called every bad name under the sun, particularly by Monsoon and Wrestling/VinceMcMahon. During a classic ''Saturday Night's Main Event'' promo, Hercules during his early heel run once cut a sly promo about this... the good guys get away with bending or breaking the rules, but when he (and his rulebreaking friends) step out of line, they are harshly condemned.

* FreedomPlanet: [[spoiler:Brevon, the main villain, constantly tries to portray himself as a victimized WellIntentionedExtremist and that the heroes' misfortunes are their own fault for getting in his way. Needless to say, this really rings hollow, especially since he tries this justification ''after turning Milla into a brainwashed monster purely out of spite''.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' has the inimitable (we hope) GLaDOS, who in the sequel is ''very upset'' that she was killed in the first game... after spending at least half of it trying to kill ''you''.

* Also from ''Literature/TheBible'', the prophet Nathan manages to force David to see his own crime ([[TheUriahGambit sending Uriah out to be killed]] in order to steal his wife) as others see it by retelling the story of his own deeds to him in disguised form. Until TheReveal prompts a "MyGodWhatHaveIDone", David's righteous outrage at the cruelty of this horrible guy Nathan's just told him about is an example of moral myopia.
