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.

* Part of ComicBook/DoctorOctopus' origin involves this trope: his mom was a very insistent MyBelovedSmother who, upon finding out that Octavius had fallen in love with one of his assistants, browbeat him into breaking up with her, only for him to find out that she was dating a man behind her back. Otto flipped out and [[CallingTheOldManOut called her out on this]], the first time he ever stood up to his mother, and things got so heated that she died from a heart attack.

** 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!

* OnePiece: [[BadassGrandpa Garp]] is about to beat on [[TheHero Luffy]] when they both fall asleep. When Garp wakes up later, he then wails on Luffy for ''falling asleep'' despite having done so himself. * A teacher example: [[SenseiChan Kuroi Sensei]] from ''LuckyStar'' plays the same online game as [[GamerChick Konata]], and has been into MMORPG's since before she was Konata's age, but she tells Konata off for doing that very thing, and ''uses in-game chat to remind her to do her homework''. When Konata calls her out on this, she remarks that, as a teacher, she has a duty to uphold, which Konata accepts as understandable, but still...

* In the HarryPotter fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2566206/1/By-the-Way By the Way]], Tonks and Lupin go to dinner with Tonks' parents. Ted is furious to learn that Lupin is a werewolf, until Andromeda points out that Ted himself was insulted and belittled for being a Muggleborn when he met ''her'' family. * In the HarryPotter fanfic series Fanfic/{{Dangerverse}}, the cubs and adults of the Pack know this can easily happen, so they have the Hypocrisy Agreement, which states that the adults cannot take the cubs to task for things the adults themselves did. As the adults (at least, Remus and Sirius) were notorious pranksters, it gives the cubs a bit of leeway.

* ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' has Simba very over-protective of Kiara. At one point, Nala points out to Simba that Kiara's just like they were when they were cubs, and Simba explains that this is what worries him. * In ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'', Kyle's mom is willing to start a war if it means stopping her son from beaving improperly. The episode "It's a Jersey Thing" reveals that she's from {{Joisey}}.

* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga A Civil Campaign]]'' by LoisMcMasterBujold, two parents get upset about their daughter having premarital sex. A family friend shuts them up by quietly bringing the couch where they first had sex -- before they were married, of course -- out of storage. * In one of the BerenstainBears books, there's a mild version involving a school dress code. The kids adopt obnoxious new fashions, and due to an escalating power struggle between the acting principal who keeps making new rules and the kids using LoopholeAbuse, it looks like the school will be going to uniforms... until Grandma Bear defuses the situation by hauling out photos of Papa and Mama Bear in their ludicrous Seventies attire. * The [[SweetValleyHigh Sweet Valley Saga]] novel ''The Wakefield Legacy'' featured Theodore Wakefield, the great-great-great grandfather of the Sweet Valley twins, running away from home to avoid an arranged marriage. When Theodore's daughter Sarah was old enough to marry, however, he insisted that she marry the man of his choice rather than the man she loved. Sarah immediately calls him out on his hypocrisy. He doesn't even bother to justify himself, continuing to insist on his right to veto Sarah's choice. This leads to a [[IHaveNoSon split between the two that is never healed.]] * In DavidWeber's WarGod series, Baroness Hanatha Bowmaster is forced to forbid her daughter Leeana from doing many of the things that Hanatha enjoyed doing at Leeana's age. In an unusual twist for this trope, ''Hanatha'' is the one who brings up the fact that she and Leeana's father were guilty of the same and worse, and Hanatha is well aware that she's being hypocritical and unfair. She [[JustifiedTrope justifies]] herself, however, by pointing out that (a) She's learned from her experiences and doesn't want Leeana to have to go through the same thing, and (b) Leeana's situation is far more precarious than Hanatha's was. * In ''Eyes of a Child'' by Richard North Patterson, Chris Paget finds his son Carlo smoking marijuana and {{Lampshades}} this trope by thinking that this was the sort of moment every parent who grew up in TheSixties dreads. Chris ends up admitting to Carlo that yes, he did smoke pot and it didn't kill him or ruin his life, but it just made him kind of dumb and wasn't really worth it.

* TrishaYearwood's "She's in Love With the Boy" is about a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin girl who's in love with a boy]] while her father complains about how stupid and worthless the boy is. After the boy and girl come home late from a date, the father's about to berate the boy, but the mother reminds him that her father used to [[DualMeaningChorus think the same way]] about him when they were younger. * The BeastieBoys' "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)" has this line:

Of course, as they both are {{mad scientist}}s with [[ChronicHeroSyndrome chronic anti-hero syndrome]], it wasn't likely to be the craziest for either.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}}'' 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.
