* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in the ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' episode ''Apes of Wrath'', Darkwing tells Launchpad to remain calm, then immediately yells at the gorilla to tell him where Gosalyn is. He fully acknowledges he's being hypocritical, and cites this trope as his defense.
-->"Okay, I don't practice what I preach. I'm a parent. I can get away with it."
** Played straight in "Trading Faces", where [[ItMakesSenseInContext Gosalyn and Honker have swapped brains with Darkwing and Launchpad]] and have to act as if nothing's happened to avoid suspicion.
-->'''Gosalyn''': You're both grounded for life and your allowance is suspended until further notice! Fun, huh, Dad? Just like the way you yell at me!
-->'''Darkwing''': I never yell at you like that. (sees damaged stairs) YOU'RE GROUNDED FOR LIFE AND YOUR ALLOWANCE IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER--Yow!

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', when the sadistic former thief Zero discovers that his daughter Éponine has been acting JustLikeRobinHood, he is very upset. Éponine insists that she's acting as a righteous thief and berates her father for trying to get in her way. In their [[RelationshipValues C-Support]], when Éponine protests that Zero was a thief as well, he is quick to point out that [[StreetUrchin he didn't have any choice]]. It isn't until A-Rank that we learn the real reason for his objection. [[spoiler:Not only did Zero not have any other choice, but he had [[DarkAndTroubledPast many, many unhappy experiences]] (things that he says would shake her to her core) in the course of his life as a thief. Zero doesn't want his daughter to be a thief, even for a good cause, because [[AdultFear he doesn't want there to be even the slightest chance of her going through what he did]].]]

In the pilot movie, it's even said that the Jedi Council paired them together hoping that working with someone even more reckless than him would force Anakin to be more cautious.
