* ParentalHypocrisy: Unfortunately, this is very much a TruthInTelevision. Part of parenting is wanting your children to be better off than you, even if it means being a hypocrite. Such examples include punishing your child for swearing or smoking even though you may do those things yourself. Another example would be pushing your child through college despite having flunked out of high school yourself. This is all done in the name of parental love and wanting the very best for your children. Though, when children point out this sort of hypocrisy, parents will typically respond with "do as I say, not as I do", or even with ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem. This is, however, a common trait that narcissistic parents have. Said parents will criticize their children for things that they still do in the present.

Added DiffLines:

* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Everyone who had done wrong won't stop to atone for their misdeeds, even if it costs them their own lives.

Added DiffLines:

* PlaneAwfulFlight: This trope is an exaggerated version of annoyances that occur on real-world airplanes; who ''hasn't'' had a flight where they got stuck with impolite passengers or bad food?


Added DiffLines:

* RejectingTheInheritance: People in real-life can and have refused their inheritance for a variety of reasons, such as not liking where the inheritance even came from.


* PuttingOnTheReich: Nazi or Nazi-like gear and regalia is used in ''many'' contexts from parody to [[CrossingTheLineTwice shock value]] to [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany deadly serious]], just see the article's RealLife section.

Added DiffLines:

* RapeAsBackstory: Sadly, this is all too common in real life. Many people who turn out to be assholes when they get older say that they were either abused and/or raped as a child/teenager.
* RapeAndRevenge: OlderThanDirt TruthInTelevision, because even in many cultures that could be considered NoWomansLand, until very recently, rape was/is seen as an offense against not the woman herself, but the family/nation/kingdom/state/fiefdom/her husband/etcetera. As a result, rapes have ''started wars,'' led to very long vendettas, and often would set off the CycleOfRevenge.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Because it ''is.''

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Because it ''is.'''' In fact, in older times, when "rape" was simply a term meaning "abduction", literature would use loaded words to refer to our modern conception of "rape", such as "violate", "outrage", or even "vilely abuse".

Added DiffLines:

*PubescentBraces: As anyone who's been through middle or high school can tell you.

* PrematurelyBald: Can be truth in television be it via alopecia or a similar condition, chemotherapy, really early onset male pattern baldness, or some sort of accident.
* PrematurelyGreyHaired: Caucasian people in general tend to get gray hair before other races do. Hard-living and stress can cause young people to get gray hair relatively quick as well.
