Pure Evil Wiki
You mistreat this poor boy the same way you mistreat my people. You speak of justice, yet you are cruel to those most in need of your help!
~ Esmeralda calling out Judge Claude Frollo for his hypocrisy.
You said all the fighting for control over the "one Starlite" was what messed your world up. Sounds like you're making the same mistake again, trying to control everything.
~ Bowser pointing out Stiron's hypocrisy.

Hypocrites are Pure Evils who set standards for others to follow, punishing those who don't, but then violate those same standards themselves.

Judge Claude Frollo is a textbook example, since he hates religious corruption, but commits multiple sins and represents the very thing he claims to hate. Same with Scar begging Simba to spare him because they were in the same family, completely ignoring the fact he killed his own brother in cold-blood, or Koba, who kills and abuses other apes yet believes himself to be fighting for them and even begs for his life to Caesar with the "Ape not kill Ape" law despite just killing several apes moments ago, or Vice-Counsel DuPont, who executed millions of Sense Offenders but happens to be a Sense Offender himself and even expected Preston to spare his life for this reason, or Bellroc and Skrael, who want to wipe out the universe due to the corruption of mankind, ignoring all the other creatures that they will be killing, and their own corruption, as well as Bellroc attacking a troll, despite claiming to protect magickind.

Hypocrites can also originally be villains who had tragedies that used to be real, till they became total hypocrites due to being too ruthless to be excused as their actions completely go against their tragedy. Drago Bludvist is a good example since his family was killed by dragons, yet enslaves dragons, the very beings responsible for their deaths, to his will to oppress people and take over the world and to give the same fate his village had to so many villages who didn't accept his control. Also, every delusional villain by default counts as a hypocrite, because they believe they are doing good despite their actions and endgame proving otherwise.
