** 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.

Usually they're the NonActionGuy (or Girl) type, or a {{Nerd}}. Often they're well-respected and popular with their students (though this isn't always the case). This is also common with [[EvilTeacher Evil Teachers]] who actually [[BecomingTheMask like their day job]]. [[OldMaster Anyone who runs a martial arts school]] is almost certainly also this trope, since their entire day job is teaching students how to be fight anyway.

* Yoko Littner from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' may be the queen of this trope, managing to defeat two [[HumongousMecha Ganmen]] with just her rifle and a hoverbike in order to protect her students.
-->"[[PreAsskickingOneLiner This will be on the test, so remember well]]. Don't wreck people's houses! ''([[CrowningMomentOfAwesome strafes a Ganmen with over a dozen shots]])'' Don't take children hostage! ''(dodges the other Ganmen's attack)'' Don't threaten people with force! ''(finishes off the second Ganmen)'' That's it. Class dismissed. ''(DramaticGunCock, the Ganmens explode)'' You fail!"
* Onizuka from ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' is the epitome of this. The guy took multiple gun shots to save a girl that's been slandering him and threatening his job, dived off a building multiple times to save students, biked through a building with an impending explosion, ''forced'' a student to give up her death wish, and destroyed multiple gangs.
** The same author wrote a manga called ''Kamen Teacher'', which is implied to take place in the same universe as ''GTO'', and focuses on a teacher who dons a ''Series/KamenRider''-style mask in order to whip his class of delinquents into shape.



* Negi Springfield from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' becomes dramatically more dangerous if his students are in danger. The same goes for Takahata. If there's a queen then Negi could be considered the king; after being impaled with a stone spear he collapses in a pool of his own blood. Then person that injured him turned his attention to Negi's student... and ''that's'' when he gets mad: he tears the spear out of his body and ''uses it to bash the guy in the head''.
** Also keep in mind that he's only 10 years old.
* Meisuke Nueno, better known as ''Manga/HellTeacherNube''. Harm his students, and it doesn't matter if you're a powerful ghost or demon. He ''will'' kill you.
** Ritsuko also qualifies: despite being absolutely devoid of spiritual power, [[spoiler:her CrowningMomentOfAwesome had her, usually portrayed as being scared to the death of even casual mention of the occult, doing what she could to protect a student endangered by an evil ghost until Nube came to rescue them both]].
** And of course, there's SexyMentor Minako-sensei, who actually ''died'' to save little Nube's life.
* Kumiko Yamaguchi from ''Manga/{{Gokusen}}'' is the homeroom teacher for a delinquent-filled school. However, she's also the 4th Generation female heir of a notorious {{yakuza}} gang. Indeed, she does a lot to protect (and also correct) her students...

* In ''Anime/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.
** One of Aya's fellow teachers, [[GenkiGirl Asami]], is ''very'' impressed by how Aya stands up to S Class, and does her best to emulate him when she stumbles across a severely injured and obviously terrified student on the school grounds. [[SubvertedTrope It doesn't go well for her.]]
* ''Manga/SoulEater'' has the Shibusen faculty, with Stein as a particular example.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''
** Chronos-sensei. Not only does he stand up to Camula to protect the other students who are carrying Spirit Keys (and most especially the pride of the school at the time, Kaiser Marufuji Ryou), but in season three, he puts himself in between his students and a rampaging horde of duel zombies, to delay said zombies and prevent them from stopping the students from getting to where they could get the help they needed to leave the desert dimension. And both times, he knew he was going to fail. He did it anyway. He has his bad points, but when his students are threatened, he will put his foot down (and then get knocked on his ass, but he doesn't let that get him down!).
** You might also include Samejima, the school's headmaster. He was the one who originally [[TheMentor trained Ryo]], and was presumably no slouch. "Presumably" because he never actually won a duel on-camera. But then, [[InformedAbility there had to be a reason]] why he was running this place and a monastery devoted to the Cyber-Style of dueling before that...
* The ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' {{OVA}} has a scene where Raine takes out Lloyd with a ''piece of chalk'' when he was [[strike:not paying attention]] sleeping in class. And it ''knocked him down along with his seat''. That or she caught him off guard. Kratos would be disappointed.

** Clara Oswald, who rides a motorcycle (which is enough to qualify her right there), steps away from her class because a paramilitary organization calls upon her whenever the Doctor isn't available, and is arguably the most powerful companion in the show's long history. Oh and while it's safe to say she's probably going to have to take an extended sabbatical from her job as a result, [[spoiler: she's saved from death by the Doctor, though this turns her into an immortal, and when last seen she's roaming time and space with her own TARDIS]].

* The ComicBook/XMen are almost always {{Badass}}, and this extends to their teaching careers at the Xavier Institute as well. ComicBook/EmmaFrost in particular is very protective of her students, probably because two of her previous classes of students were murdered.

* Miss Wilson in the ChaletSchool series. Leading a group of kids to safety through a secret passageway, with a gang of angry Nazis in hot pursuit? I'd say that's pretty {{Badass}}. Doubles as a MamaBear moment.

* Literature/CiaphasCain ('''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Hero of the Imperium!]]''') eventually gets to retire from [[AccidentalHero inadvertently]] being a {{Badass}} [[BadassNormal Commissar]]... in order to teach [[GenerationXerox another]] generation of [[BadassBureaucrat Commissars]]. The Imperium is [[InvokedTrope naturally expecting]] this trope to come into play, even before he starts working with three ''more'' Badass Teachers in order to protect the planet from an arm of the [[OhCrap 13th Black Crusade]].

* Because of the threat of suicide bombings against a certain girls school in Afghanistan, the complex was walled with only one gate placed far away from the main school building. At this gate a single teacher would sit, watching the gate. If a suicide bomber entered the teacher would attack him and try to detonate the explosive, [[HeroicSacrifice killing them both]]. And if that's not {{badass}} enough, the teachers were [[BadassGrandma 50 year-old women]].

** From the same series, in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', we have Professor Kukui. First of all, he studies Pokemon moves by actively ''taking'' them! Second of all, he's responsible for [[spoiler:having the idea of building a Pokemon League in Alola]], and third [[spoiler:he's the final battle before you become champion! [[NintendoHard He poses quite a challenge at that]].]]
