* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': Unusually for this trope, it’s the student herself who explains this rather than the teacher - [[spoiler:Sunset Shimmer reveals she was once Princess Celestia’s personal student, until the Princess felt she wasn’t “worthy” and “forced her out”.]]

* Both subverted and inverted ("a pupil of mine until I turned good") in the case of the two female members of the Wrestling/TheInvasion. In the partnership of Wrestling/TorrieWilson and Wrestling/StacyKeibler it was apparently the latter who was the junior partner, with Wilson giving Keibler a demeaning slap on the buttocks to get her moving just before their Bra & Panties Match against Wrestling/{{Lita}} and Wrestling/TrishStratus. But instead of Keibler rebelling against her master, it was Wilson who saw the light, much to Keibler's disgust. By the time the Invasion angle was over, Wilson had established herself as WWE Divas' resident AllAmericanFace - [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor well, for a time, anyway]] - while Keibler became a successful heel manager and corporate saboteur. In effect, [[StarWarsKnightsOfTheOldRepublic the Darth Malak to Wilson's Darth Revan]].

* In ''Film/AntMan'', Hank Pym had mentored Darren Cross but Cross grew resentful that Hank was unwilling to share his research on the Pym Particles and is driven to get the same results from the Pym Particles to prove he was better than Hank, leading him to [[spoiler: supply HYDRA with weapons]].
* The Vietnamese gangster in ''Film/BigStan'' was The Master's star pupil. From the moment The Master calls Stan "My second best pupil", we just know this trope is going to be invoked!
* Betelgeuse in the movie ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', worked for afterlife case worker Juno before he became a "freelance bio-exorcist."
* Inverted in ''[[Film/BillAndTed Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey]]'', where it is Rufus's old teacher (even if for gym), [[SignificantAnagram De Nomolos]], who turns to evil.
-->"I worked within the system until I could stand it no longer.''
* In ''Film/ChildsPlay'', series BigBad Chucky was originally mentored in his HollywoodVoodoo by a man called Dr. Death, who in spite of his ominous name intended for Chucky to use said voodoo for... well, one struggles to think of any purpose for a BodySurf ritual ''other'' than abusing it willy-nilly, bit evidently Dr. D had one in mind. He becomes outraged when he learns what Chucky has done, but due to being TooDumbToLive quickly comes down with a terminal case of death-by-voodoo-doll.



* Han, the BigBad of ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', was a student at the Shaolin temple until he became an organized crime boss. [[Creator/BruceLee Lee]], a more loyal student of the temple, is sent to stop him.
--> '''Lee:''' [[TranquilFury You have offended my family, and you have offended the Shaolin temple.]]
* The plot of ''Film/TheHunted'' involves Creator/TommyLeeJones's character being asked to hunt down his former pupil, played by BenicioDelToro, who has gone rogue.
* Inverted in ''Film/TheMightyDucks'' between Gordon Bombay and Jack Reilly.
* Tommy Gunn from ''Film/RockyV'', who starts out as Rocky's loyal protege, but becomes bitter when the public sees him as Rocky's puppet, and joins with a sleazy promoter instead.
