* Similarly, most of the teachers at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, since many of them are retired superheroes. Even more frightening, some of them are retired super''villains''.
** Special mention may go to Mrs. Ryan, a kindly old lady who teaches Costume Shop I. She's very mild-mannered, knows her stuff, happily offers advice to any student who comes looking, [[spoiler:and used to be the notorious European A-List supervillain, Lady Hydra]]. Most students underestimate her once. Very few do so twice.
* [[EvilTeacher Coach Callahan]] from TalesOfMU. Aside from teaching such mundane classes as "Mixed Melee" and "Fighting to Disable", she is also one of the worst war criminals alive today. In her past, she has committed multiple genocides, stopped giants from taking over the world more than once, and has been charged with multiple counts of attempted deicide (most nations do not have laws against successful [[KillTheGod deicide]]).
* In the [[Blog/AskAPony Ask a Pony]] blog Blog/AskHoopsAndDumbbell, Dumbbell is a currently a [[BadassTeacher Badass Student Teacher]]. Before going for his Teaching License, he was offered a Pro Boxing position. It's been a few years, but he's still good enough to drop an unlucky mugger.
* The faculty of Beacon in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' are all skilled Huntsmen and Huntresses. The most notable examples are Glynda Goodwitch, who can repair entire buildings with a flick of her wand and can take down Grimm without even looking, Professor Port, who treats Grimm like any GreatWhiteHunter would, and Doctor Bartholomew Oobleck, who is a bit more bookish than the other two but can total MiniMecha with one hit from his mace/napalm launcher/thermos. The most badass, however, is headmaster Ozpin, [[spoiler:who puts up one hell of a fight against a Cinder who has the entirety of the Fall Maiden's power, landing multiple hits on her in quick succession]].
* In WebVideo/YandereHighSchool, the gym teacher, Rowan, is [[spoiler: a SWAT person. His wife, Okami, the main teacher is also on the team.]]

* In ''WeissKreuz Gluhen'', history teacher Fujimiya Aya is the only person at Koua Academy to stand up to the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil when they declare their control over the school, rushing to the defense of one of his students when S Class calls out a manhunt on the boy. Of course, this is mostly because both Aya and the student are undercover assassins investigating the school, although Aya ''probably'' would also have taken action to defend other innocent students if it had ever come up.

*** Almost all of McGonagall's interactions with Umbridge qualify as this. She repeatedly mocks or snarks at Umbridge, who could fire her with a word to Fudge if she wished, and encourages Peeves to screw with her. And when Umbridge starts trying to pick on Harry and the other students, McGonagall does her best to stop her or thwart her.
** Severus Snape. He was [[spoiler:a spy for Dumbledore, could fly without a broom, and during his spying days he lied to Voldemort's FACE for years]]. And he was an innovator, too. [[spoiler:He is in fact the Half-Blood Prince who was behind a number of innovative and sometimes ''nasty'' spells]]. And when he actually ''does'' teach, once you get past his JerkAss-ness, he is ''focused''; he teaches with a purpose.

* Souichirou Kuzuki in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' in the Unlimited Blade Works route. TheDrifter who randomly came to town prior to the story and stayed at the local shrine. Despite being a perfectly normal human, he becomes the suspect of who Servant Caster's Master is. Simple mission: shoot him with a sleeping spell. If he is the Master then job well done, and if not then no harm done. Of course this doesn't turn out well when Caster warps in and saves him. But the battle is on our heroes' side! They've got Saber, the woman who is the strongest Servant! She gets past Caster and goes for Souichirou! And [[spoiler:THWACK. Souichirou counters and proceeds to unleash a SpamAttack on FistOfTheNorthStar levels.]] Yes, Souichirou just beat up [[spoiler: King Arthur]] with his bare hands.

* In ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/251660/tales-from-the-dark-side-of-the-mirror Tales From The Dark Side of the Mirror]]'', [[MirrorUniverse Mirror!Starlight Glimmer]] is this. Pinkamena describes her as a great teacher, and she is dedicated to helping others reach their full potential, but she's also TheDreaded and is implied to be extremely strong. Case in point, she mopped the floor with a stallion who was attempting to [[spoiler:beat up Rainbow Crash]] with little effort, and Fluttercruel at least fears the mare could [[MindOverMatter turn her into a pony pretzel with her mind]] if she felt like it. It's also said she trains ''Royal Guards''.

** Robin Wood is a Badass school principal and daughter of a Slayer. Even Buffy is amazed of how capable he is.
** Miss LeHane worked as one, and did a pretty good job of it as well, trying to stop the school from being turned into vampires. BadAss? She's the freaking [[TheChosenOne Slayer.]] She whips Drusilia without breaking a sweat. And she's savvy enough to do well on the teacher part.

* The instructors of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Garden]] qualify for this. Case in point: [[CoolTeacher Quistis]] [[HotTeacher Trepe]]. How did she once assist her students on the field? By taking down the [[SpiderTank giant spider robot]] that's pursuing them with a '''[[GatlingGood gatling gun]]'''.
