* Heroic example: [[Anime/AngelBeats Otonashi]] ''successfully sends his friends that were in purgatory'' to find peace with themselves. He then tells Tenshi to stay with him in that place which pretty much while in-character, is pretty much infuriating due to the fact that their goal was to go away from that place. Thankfully, that didn't work out.
* [[spoiler:Bertolt and Reiner]] in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' went through traumatic events which loved ones were eaten by Titans, yet intend to do the same thing to countless hundreds of innocent people. [[spoiler:The motivation behind this still remains a mystery.]]
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Griffith admits to Princess Charlotte that the only person worthy of being his friend, is a man who chases his own personal dream, even at the expense of his own dream. After Guts overhears this, he decides to leave the Band of the Hawk after helping them win the war for Midland, to discover and chase his own dream. Griffith challenges Guts to another duel after he finds out, since at this time, Griffith has become quite obsessed with him. When Griffith loses the duel and Guts leaves, it is the point where things go FromBadToWorse, both for Griffith and for the other Hawks soon after.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** [[MasterOfIllusion Aizen]] tells Ichigo to abandon his arrogance, in spite of growing more obnoxious throughout his final fight with Ichigo. Not to mention his desire to [[AGodAmI become a god]]; with goals like that, he really can't call anyone arrogant.
** Bazz-B gets pissed when Cang Du steps in and declares he will be the one who will finish off Hitsugaya, saying {{Kill Steal}}ing is not cool. Later, Bazz-B [[TeamKiller shoots down]] Candice, Giselle, Liltotto, and Meninas during their fight against Ichigo and claims he has every right to perform a KillSteal.
* Explored in ''Manga/BusoRenkin''. TheHero Kazuki Muto believes turning into a homunculus is wrong as the person gives up his humanity yet he later turns into a "Viktor," a enhanced human who absorbs the energy of others. Kazuki is also supposed to eliminate the Homunculi yet he is also against murdering them. He gets called out several times by TheRival and eventually Kazuki decides he doesn't care about that.
* The Angels in ''CodeBreaker'', they seem to view pretty much anyone who isn't them as evil, all while playing fun games such as "who can kill the least amount of people". Then one even states that it would be more fun to just kill them, these being the guys who believe normal people are evil for wanting to kill people.
* Suzaku from ''CodeGeass'' preaches non-violence and systematic change, all the while serving in the very army causing the tyranny. It's a lot worse in the second season, where his primary plan to obtain Japan's freedom is to deprive ''everyone else'' of their freedom (if necessary) just so he can get a high-enough standing to claim Japan as his own.
** Lelouch is a hypocrite, too, but the big difference between him and Suzaku is that [[HypocrisyNod he hold no illusions about that fact]].
** Ohgi believes that soldiers should not be used as pawns, which he holds to... until [[spoiler:he uses Kallen to bait out his leader who he intends to turn over to Schneizel in exchange for Zero]]. Also, he contradicts his bitterness over Lelouch's disappearance during the Black Rebellion, both by his abandonment mid-season, and [[spoiler:the aforementioned trade made without the UFN's consent that would have left its member nations abandoned]].
* L from ''Manga/DeathNote'', who tells Light that it is evil to murder outside the law, then proceeds to do a whole manner of illegal things to capture the 'evil' Kira, (including spying and kidnapping.) This goes to show that it is [[NotSoDifferent all just a matter of scale.]] That said, whenever L does something really questionable its usually [[JerkassHasAPoint directed at the right people]].
** And of course there's Light himself. Ryuk tells him that even if he succeeds in killing all the evil people, he'll remain as the only evil person, and Light refuses to consider what he does evil.
*** In the 13th volume, Light considers all killings are criminal, even if they are carried out from his order.
*** However, he doesnt believe he should be punished for it, so he is still a hypocrite. Especially since his victims include plenty of innocent people, killed to tie up loose ends, because they were trying to stop him, or in once case when they used the Death Note to kill people for profit - even though he gave it to them and expected them to do just that.
** Also Near, if [[spoiler:Matsuda]]'s theory [[spoiler:that he wrote Mikami's name in the Death Note to verify it was real and prevent Mikami from doing anything that would undermine Near's plan, thus enabling him to expose Light as Kira]] is true.
* In ''DGrayMan'', the Black Order is supposed to be the good guys, and represent light to battle the noah and akuma who have darkness based powers. [[spoiler: and then we find out about [[EldritchAbomination fallen ones]], heresy trials, the second exorcist project, the third exorcist project, and Apocryphos.]]
* ''DragonballGT'': Baby is a living DNA archive of the Tuffles, a race destroyed by the Saiyans. Baby, being the last of his kind, attacks Earth, where the remaining Saiyans are for {{Revenge}}. He establishes himself as king, recreates the Tuffle homeworld, and has just about everyone under his control. He goes on and on about how the barbaric, bloodthirsty, and cruel the Saiyans are. However, he seems to neither notice nor care that his actions make him NotSoDifferent from the Saiyans, if not worse.
* Father, the BigBad of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' loathed humans; his fondest desire was to see them punished for their arrogance. Yet his ultimate goal was to [[spoiler:become a PhysicalGod by consuming the real one]]. [[LiteralGenie He got called on it]], [[AndIMustScream big time]].
** Also, according to Kimblee, Pride is this, as he [[spoiler:insults humans and states his desire to [[GrandTheftMe steal Ed's body]] in the same breath]]. It's why Kimblee decides to [[spoiler:help Ed]].
** Ed, Winry, and Al believe that Scar should be punished for the murders that he committed against Amestrians, but are more hesitant to believe that Mustang, Hawkeye, and the rest of the Amestrian soldiers should be punished for doing the same thing to Ishvalans. This is largely out of the belief that the latter group was JustFollowingOrders (and was being manipulated by the Homunculi, at that).
** Scar can be considered this, as he, an Ishvalan, hates alchemy, but uses the deconstruction part of it to kill his targets. [[spoiler:When he comes to terms with himself and realizes what he's doing is wrong, he gets a tattoo on his other arm and starts using alchemy]].
** [[spoiler:Dante]], the BigBad of [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime adaptation]], is also a massive hypocrite. [[spoiler: She claims to be "above humans", just like her manga counterpart. At the end of the series, she gives Edward a big speech about how life isn't fair and that humans would destroy the world if they had the Philosopher's Stone. After her defeat, she whines about how her own efforts were ruined; moreover, she herself instigated nearly every atrocity in the past four centuries out of a desire for the Philosopher's Stone. Although she seems to believe her own bullshit to an extent, she mainly uses it as a means to excuse her colossal selfishness.]]
* Leonard Tessarossa from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic''. He makes a big deal about how he's a perfect gentleman, and is shown to constantly [[GreenEyedMonster get jealous and angry]] when people like [[MagneticHero Sousuke]] more than him, wondering ''why'', since Sousuke is far less [[MenAreUncultured "cultured"]] and [[SociopathicHero directly killed]] more people than him. Unfortunately, as much as he likes to think so, a gentleman he is not. No gentleman would (knowing [[SacredFirstKiss how important it is to a woman]]) force a kiss on a girl who likes someone else. It gets even worse when he willingly abandons his "[[AffablyEvil gentlemanly act]]", at which point he delivers an ArmorPiercingSlap and BigShutUp to said girl...and still remains convinced that he can win her over -- which may have had something to do with his plan to get her possessed by the spirit of another woman, one he hoped would be a bit more "willing". Combining all this, there ''is'' a reason why Leonard is one of the most agreed upon [[TheScrappy Scrappies]] in the series.
* ''GundamSEED'' has Blue Cosmos. Their main goal is to kill all of the [[DesignerBabies Coordinators]], and how do they do it? By kidnapping children and conditioning them into Artificial Coordinators, which is the only way they could possibly stand a chance in 1 on 1 combat against ZAFT. It should be noted that the process used to create these "Extended", which involves [[PsychoSerum drugs]], mental conditioning, torture, and memory tampering is far, far more invasive than the process used to make Coordinators.
** ''GundamSEEDDestiny'': Shinn Asuka is horrified when he finds out about Stella's backstory as a {{Tykebomb}}, disobeys orders in order to save her, and is outraged when Kira Yamato cuts her down while she is rampaging through Berlin. In an earlier episode, Shinn had killed Stella's fellow SuperSoldier and Tykebomb, Auel. In a later episode, he kills her other partner, Sting. In both cases, he is fully aware of who they are and what he's killing--and treats them like monsters who deserve to die.
* ''{{Gundam 00}}'' - Celestial Being, what with the whole fighting (and killing) to eradicate war. Don't they know [[KnightsofTheOldRepublic that to be united by hatred is a fragile alliance at best]]? And some people actually wonder why there are those who were [[RootingForTheEmpire rooting for their enemies]]?
** In fact they do recognize this. [[LampshadeHanging Lockon calls himself a "walking contradiction" at one point]] due to being a terrorist who hates terrorism. They still believe that their actions in the greater Aeolia Plan will lead to a better world, however.
** There was also a terrorist group called La Eden, who bomb numerous cities, their reason was to stop Celestial Being from their military interventions. They state that their actions weren't evil, however their actions could hardly considered to be anything but evil, and they're just a bunch of wannabe terrorists trying to imitate Celestial Being.
*** The rest of the world seems to agree, as various government intelligence agencies [[EnemyMine quietly leaked the location]] of La Eden's home base to Celestial Being.
* In the fourth OVA of ''{{Hellsing}}'', Rip Van Winkle opts to kill three British vampire turncoats [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves for killing the crew of their aircraft carrier and handing it over to her]]. Earlier that same episode, she and her cohorts at Millennium betrayed and murdered a dozen aging former senior officers when they got angry at [[BigBad The Major]] for refusing to turn them into vampires.
* In ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', [[spoiler:Admiral Gil Graham]] realizes that he is being a hypocrite by [[spoiler:regretting having to seal a young orphan like Hayate away for eternity with the Book of Darkness (yet considering her ideal in a sense because few would mourn her), and providing for her until then for the sake of her happiness, which implies the belief that it would offset sacrificing her]].
* The villains of ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts''. [[spoiler:Aya's fake friends rub it in her face that those who lost the tournament were mind raped into being sex slaves and she's to blame, despite that they were the ones who took advantage of it and cased said mind rapes. Also, they sought revenge on her for her parents causing their lives misery and grief with the original Martial Heart tournament... by bringing the tournament back.]]
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s very own [[AGodAmI Pain]] tells [[SuperStrength Tsunade]] to not be haughty. Considering the fact that he believes himself to be a god and that he's divine... Well, arrogance is blinding, isn't it?
** Then there's Naruto Uzumaki himself. He regularly chews out lecherous and otherwise perverted people, while being a bit of a CovertPervert himself.
*** In a similar vein, a twelve year-old Jiraiya called the Third Hokage a pervert for wanting to accompany Jiraiya when he spied on the hot springs.
** [[spoiler:Tobi]] constantly claimed [[ThatManIsDead he had discarded his original identity]], but it was his love of [[spoiler:[[TheLostLenore Rin]]]] that drove him to commit his crimes and kept him sane when his mind was nearly torn apart by [[spoiler:the Juubi]].
** Danzo always claimed that shinobi should be willing to sacrifice themselves for their village, but he was always too afraid to do the same. Unlike the other examples, Danzo was aware of his own hypocrisy and hated himself for not being brave enough to practice what he preached.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Mewtwo wants to destroy humans because he hates them for [[CloningBlues cloning him]]. How does he go about this destruction? [[{{Hypocrite}} By making clones]].
** The dub changes his motivation, he wants to sever the link between humans and Pokemon simply because he thinks all humans treat Pokemon as tools. And of course he is using Pokemon as tools to accomplish this.
** Played for laughs in the ''Best Wishes'' series: when Ash messes something up (sometimes by accident) or says something out of place, Iris would often call him a kid...even though SHE'S a kid herself! However, it's more like a sister teasing her brother than actual taunting.
** The samurai from the fourth episode ''really'' gets hypocritical. He berates Ash for not finishing what he started...even though he wasn't polite by waiting for Ash to finish catching that darn Weedle. Instead, he rudely and instantly challenges him to a Pokemon battle, leaving the Weedle enough time to escape and warn its Beedrill buddies. And to top it off, he calls Ash a terrible trainer even though a Beedrill had already taken it away and he tried to call it back. Worst of all, [[KarmaHoudini no one calls him out on it]]!
* Akane Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' says that it wouldn't be fair for Ranma and Akane to get married because she'd be emotionally crushed, but feels that it's alright for Ranma, Ukyo, and Kodachi to be emotionally crushed because it's not her.
* Touga from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' fits this. He mistakenly believes his sister Nanami is a lesbian in the episode "Nanami's Egg" and gives her a lecture about how "evil" homosexuality is. At this point, he's sleeping with [[spoiler:Akio]]
** In the same episode, he also says that the reason that he and Nanami get along so well is because she's not the type of girl that lays eggs and that he pities the parents of a girl who would do that. Now, if you look at this as a metaphor for teen pregnant then it becomes clear that Touga is a hypocrite because he sleeps with so many different girls at the school and may have gotten more than one girl pregnant. Actually, it would be surprising if he managed to never knock anyone up during his high school career. So, this episode highlighted Touga's Jerkass hypocrisy.
* In ''SpiritedAway'', Yubaba refuses to accept Chihiro into her bathhouse because in her words, Chihiro is a "spoiled, lazy crybaby and you have no manners". Shortly afterwards, Yubaba is interrupted by her baby, who she immediately coddles and pampers, who fits Yubaba's description of Chihiro perfectly.
** Furthermore, she criticizes her employees for being greedy and attracting the wrong customer when {{Greed}} is one of Yubaba's defining characteristics.
* ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi'': Akira becomes this at the end of the anime series. [[spoiler: When he saves Rin from Shiki, he tells Rin to forget about killing Shiki because it's not worth it. Later on, Shiki kills Keisuke and Akira tries to kill him. [[IronicEcho Rin tells him the same thing.]] Akira doesn't listen to him at the end and returns to Toshima to kill Shiki.]]
* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'':
** Noah, the apparent BigBad of the Virtual Nightmare Arc of [[Anime/YuGiOh the original series]] is the most obvious example. He mercilessly punished his minions for cheating and not following the rules, but blatantly did so himself when dueling Kaiba, using Mokuba as a human shield when he was about to lose. Yami rightfully calls him out on this.
** When Yami duels Johnny Steps, Johnny plays monsters that are different types from each other. Yami calls him out on not having a real deck theme. While Yami had a point that Johnny's deck was full of cards that were chosen for being aesthetically pleasing instead of concentrating on winning, Yami had a deck with a hodgepodge of monsters as well. (This is only in the dub. In the original, Yami says he's using "fan cards" that duelists never use seriously; when Johnny uses Witch of the Black Forest - a potentially powerful card - he changes his mind and thinks he's gotten serious.)
** Minor example involves Kaiba in Battle City. After Yugi defeats Strings, Marik gloats, telling Yugi that his plans involve targeting his friends. Yugi then runs to find them, ignoring the challenge that Kaiba made. Kaiba grumbles that refusing a challenge is a violation of Battle City rules. The problem is, Kaiba himself did that when he prematurely cancelled the duel that Jonouchi challenged him to in order to rush to this very battle (meaning it was likely only an hour earlier, despite being about three episodes ago). Apparently, cancelling on account of an emergency is only a good reason when it's ''his'' emergency.
** Another example involving Kaiba came during his duel with Gozaburo during the Virtual Nightmare Arc. Kaiba gave a brief TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in which he told Gozaburo that his deck was focusing too much on a single monster, and little synergy. (Kaiba was giving him too much credit; Gozaburo's strategy was ''nothing'' except "summon Exodia Necross and attack with it", trying to draw on Kaiba's fear of Exodia.) Unfortunately, this was sort of a BrokenAesop coming from Kaiba, who spent all of Battle City before this point (and much of it afterwards) relying mostly on [[PhysicalGod Obelisk the Tormentor]], modeling his deck on ways to summon the God Card quicker. Even without Obelisk, Kaiba's all about his Blue Eyes White Dragons.
** A smaller example is Keith from the manga ''Manga/YuGiOhR''. When Jonouchi uses a card called Summon Capture in their duel, Keith becomes angry, implying that the card is broken and overpowered. While most would agree that it is, Keith not only blatantly cheated in their first duel in Duelist Kingdom, but used a card called The Pillager that was a lot like Summon Capture, but probably even ''more'' broken.
** In the manga version of ''Manga/YuGiOhGX'' [[TheDragon Reggie [=MacKenzie=]]] expresses disgust at one point how sadistic her college David Rabb is being towards an opponent in a Shadow Duel... And later proves capable of even worse cruelty in one towards Midori Hibiki. (Made worse by the fact that [[spoiler:Reggie is NotBrainwashed like most of [[BigBad Tragodia's]] servants are, and she's the one responsible for the comatose state that Hibiki's brother is in.]]
** Mild example, Jack Atlas from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds''. Even after his HeelFaceTurn, he gets ''very'' upset whenever people steal his things (even his cup ramen) or even borrow them without asking (like when Crow borrows his D-Wheel). This from a guy who previously became an outright thief in order to escape Satellite.
** Mamoru Jinguji was a minor character in ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' (only appearing in one episode) but may have been the worst example of this Trope in the entire franchise. As the Student Council President of Heartland Academy, he was adamant about school rules being followed, but he blatant broke a lot of them himself by enforcing them, forcing Yuma into a duel with house rules that would be considered outright cheating, such as making Takashi – who he duped into working for him – force Yuma to return his monsters to his hand for dress code violations. Then it got worse. When Yuma tried to avoid breaking this “rule” by Equipping Gagaga Girl with a Spell Card that covered her, he countered it (that would be considered entrapment by any actual legal authority) then insisted Yuma be punished for “assaulting” him (meaning attacking directly, even though Mamoru did the exact same thing to Yuma just five minutes earlier). And to make this even worse, he used monsters [[LightIsNotGood that resembled Shinto priests to do this]]. (Of course, you have to forgive him for all this, seeing as he was a BrainwashedAndCrazy pawn of the Barians, but it didn’t make the whole thing any less demented.)
* PlayedForLaughs in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBhiq8uTj_U this]] ''Anime/{{K}}'' radio drama. Kuroh starts rambling about how wonderful Ichigen-sama is and Fushimi Saruhiko interrupts him with Shiro's [[RunningGag well-known "Creepy!"]]. Saruhiko is not exactly [[StalkerWithACrush one]] [[LoveMakesYouCrazy to]] [[AxCrazy talk]]. On that Kuroh and Kamamoto agree.
* This is actually very common for many villains in ''Manga/SoulEater''. They often ridicule Lord Death for defining them as evil and needing to be killed, stating he shouldn't have the right to determine what souls are "evil". All the while, they're murdering innocent people, trying to drive the world into chaos, manipulating and deceiving others, and destroying property.
