** Severus Snape also counts as a minor example. In his youth, he hated James Potter and Sirius Black from Gryffindor because they were bullying jerks who relentlessly picked on the Slytherin-sorted Snape, who back then was a (relatively) nice guy in comparison. When they grew up into adults, however, the situation ironically became ''reversed'': James Potter and Sirius Black grew up into nice adults, while Snape actually ''became'' the bully he hated in his youth, because Snape decided to retroactively get back at Gryffindor by abusing his position as a teacher to protect Slytherin from penalties and punish Gryffindor for lots of invented infractions.
*** Actually, Severus was already a bully in his youth as his friends were people who became Death Eaters. For all the disdain toward the pranks James and Sirius did, what his friends did were ''worse'' yet he shrugs them off as playing around, something that [[spoiler: Lily Evans]] called out against him. In fact, Severus hated James because he was everything he wasn't: popular, talented, good with people and coming from a loving home compared to the anti-social, gangly Snape, who's father was abusive and who's mother was aloof.

* Bertrand from ''VideoGame/InFamous2'' considers [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Conduits]] to be demons and ultimately wants them to be exterminated, [[spoiler:but is secretly a Conduit himself. Although Cole points out that he most likely is jealous of the fact that whilst others became shiny supermen, he got to be a big bug]]. So maybe instead of "you are what you hate," he falls more under "[[spoiler:you hate that others like you possess awesome powers yet yours suck.]]"

* Uncle Ruckus from ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks''. He's the darkest guy in the series and he hates black people with a passion. He does his best to distance himself from being black, holding on to whatever European heritages he believes he has ([[spoiler:though a genetic test in one episode reveals he's 102% African, with a 2% margin of error]]) and claims to have a condition called "re-vitiligo", the "opposite of what Music/MichaelJackson had", which supposedly causes him to get darker.

** Cartman hates "Gingers" (People with red hair, freckles, and pale skin) and insists they have no soul. As revenge Stan, Kenny, and Kyle draw freckles on him and dye his hair red in the middle of the night. He then hangs out with the gingers and whips them into a genocidal frenzy against everyone else. At a massive rally, they're about to kill everyone who isn't a ginger (starting with the "Daywalker", [[FieryRedhead Kyle]]) only to have Stan, Kyle, and Kenny reveal Cartman's not a ginger. Then he just goes back to ripping on gingers. [[spoiler: And then in 201 it turns out Cartman's father was also Scott Tenorman's father, making Cartman half-ginger]]. Its also worth noting that Cartman is anti-semiotic due to Jewish stereotypes he perceives as true such as Jews being frugal and carrying gold. This is ironic considering Cartman had no issues taking advantage of Walmart deals and ultimately isn't at all above doing absolutely anything for money, from scamming people to eating kilos of gold to smuggle it out of an attraction.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'', Mind???? takes a peek into (ex-)lover Spooky's memories and instantly grasps that her public persona has been subconsciously patterned after the same vain blonde bimbos she was so traumatized by. Both physically (sans actual Blondeness) and personality.] [[spoiler:Said blonde bimbos even [[DealWithTheDevil sold their souls]] for "supernatural hotness" (sans superpowers) just like Spooky did, and for the exact same reasons. Spooky discovered this when she tried to use her powers to take revenge -- her patron demon didn't allow it because he is forbidden from interfering with other demons' clients.]]

* In the ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd story "The Neon Knights", Dredd unmasks the leader of the eponymous robot-hating "Klan", revealing him to be...A CYBORG! "I thought his voice sounded synthetic; like all bigots he HATED HIMSELF and transferred that hatred to the thing he most resembled...Robots!" is Dredd's explanation.

* The villain {{Magneto}} is also an example. He hates Nazis for what they did to him and his family, but as a result became a mutant-supremacist, hating all humans and just becoming a different kind of bigot.

* The main characters of the anime Genshiken are a bunch of otaku all fitting a certain subset of otaku life. The character Chika Ogiue introduced in the second season represents the self-loathing otaku, and she is very open about this despite being a prominent member of the Genshiken club. Kanji himself started off as this trope being a closet otaku before coming to terms with it.

* PlayedForLaughs in a ''KeyAndPeele'' sketch involving a LiteralMinded school bully. After hurling a homophobic insult, the bully immediately confesses that he only said it because he's beginning to realize that he himself might be gay, and thus wants to seem like he hates homosexuals so that nobody will suspect him.
