* Jamal's father in the ''Jamal the Funny Frog'' shorts from ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons'' had a tendency to not practice what he preaches to his son.
** In "His Musical Moment", he chides Jamal for shirking piano practice to play video games, telling him that playing his video game too much will rot his brain. After Jamal learns that piano practice can be fun, he finds his dad playing the same video game he confiscated from him.
** "Dentist" begins with Jamal's dad reprimanding his son for eating junk food for breakfast and not taking proper care of his teeth, when the end of the short has him feast on the junk food left on the table and lose a few of his teeth without a care.

* Chi-Chi from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' comes off as this towards Gohan, forbidding him from fighting despite her fighting herself when she was a teenager. This is understandable, as she believed that Gohan was far too young to be fighting at age 4-5. It also helps that even other characters like Krillin and Bulma lampshaded throughout the series about how children (Gohan, Goten, and Trunks) shouldn't even be fighting and engaging in dangerous activities in the first place. It also helps that Chi-Chi started fighting when she was 12, in contrast to Gohan who started fighting when he was ''4.''

** After Gohan awakens to Super Saiyan 2, Goku gets on his case about finishing Cell off right away, instead of letting the fight continue to prolong Cell's suffering, even though Goku did the same thing when he awoke to the power of Super Saiyan with Frieza. This is a case of Goku learning from experience, as he barely avoided the explosion of Namek because he prolonged the fight with Frieza.

Possibly a subtrope of GenerationXerox. The parent or guardian involved is often a FormerTeenRebel.

FormerTeenRebel. It can also be a subtrope of HypocriteHasAPoint, where someone is still shown to be right in spite of their hypocrisy.

* Kodah from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' questions her daughter's choice in men after [[InterspeciesRomance she hooks up with a Hylian]], but notes that she isn't really in any position to criticize given that [[ChildhoodFriendRomance she was in love with Link when they were children]].

NoRealLifeExamplesPlease. While this trope is indeed TruthInTelevision, it would be filed with natter and complaining about parents who engage in hypocrisy.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' Ginger's mom Lois forbids her pre-teen daughter things like using makeup and shaving her legs, but it's immediately shown that Lois have a whole bathroom full of beauty products that she keeps locked. This may be because Lois believes that Ginger is ''too young'' to be using those things.

-->'''Rancisis''' That is what concerns me. To walk the path of the Jedi, one's spirit must be strong. That requires discipline. And he has often disobeyed you, has he not Master Obi-Wan?
-->'''Yoda:''' Did you not disobey me from time to time in your youth, Master Rancisis?
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', Anakin Skywalker, in trying to train his padawan, Ahsoka Tano, often has to teach her not to do the very things which defined his character in the prequel trilogy (and to some extent still do in the series itself). 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.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' episode "Ken 10" had Ben's future self Ben 10,000 show examples of this. He informs his son Ken that saving the world isn't kid's stuff when he himself has been doing so since he was 10 years old. He also asks where his son gets his attitude after he lashes out like he did when he was 10 years old. Both occasions are lampshaded by Ben's grandfather Max giving a scornful look when Ben is hypocritical.

* ''{{Deadpool}}'' has a case of this with his daughter, Ellie. Wade is a mercenary, and has killed or beaten up his fair share of people for little more than annoying him. He's mentioned having killed people for things as small as playing bagpipes, or putting tissue on the roll upside down. Sometimes, he will beat up people for calling him out on something, such as stealing a man's motorcycle, and threatening to kill him when he protested. But with Ellie, he doesn't want her fighting. She's been getting into many fights since she changed schools, and Wade tells her to let a teacher know if kids are bullying her. The recent chapter ends with Deadpool getting a text to come to the school because his daughter's been in another fight. Next chapter preview pages show him with Ellie in the Principal's office, visibly not happy with her.

* The teaser to the ''WesternAnimation/GarbagePailKidsCartoon'' episode "An Egg-citing Adventure" had a pair of children being warned by their parents from off-screen not to watch too much television because they'll turn into couch potatoes. We then see that the kids' parents have literally become potatoes sitting on a couch.

** Aegon V Targaryen (great-grandfather to the Mad King, Aerys II)is also an example. Due to being the fourth son of the king, he was able to marry Betha Blackwood for love. However, when he did ascend to the throne (earning the title Aegon the Unlikely), he arranged for all of his children (even the unlikely) to marry politically advantageous partners. All but one of his children rebelled against these arrangements, causing many great houses to feel slighted. His heir abdicated the throne for his love Jenny of Oldstones (angering the Baratheons enough for them to rebel), his second son secretly married and consummated with his sister (angering both the Tullys and the Tyrells), and his final son preferred the company of Ser Jeremy Norridge and ultimately refused to marry Olenna Redwyne (the Queen of Thorns). Poor Rhaelle is the only child that obeyed her father and married Lord Baratheon's heir to ease tensions. It becomes ironic because the only child that obeyed Aegon V births Robert Baratheon, the man who ultimately ends the Targaryen rule of the seven kingdoms during his rebellion.
