** In the film of ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]]'', when Harry himself becomes a teacher of sorts for Dumbledore's Army, DanielRadcliffe suggested that Harry dress somewhat like Lupin in those scenes because he was the teacher he liked best and most wanted to emulate. Awww. The other teachers have shades of this (Evil ones like [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Umbridge]] and The Carrows notwithstanding as well as the incredibly boring Binns), although they tend to fit better into other categories.

* Liv, Amelia's English teacher in ''Literature/ReconstructingAmelia''. She's young, smart, funny, and gets along great with Amelia. She's also [[spoiler:a ''brutal'' subversion of the trope, as it turns out she's the one running a cruel gossip blog that spreads rumors about the students]].

* Koro-Sensei from ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' is a CoolTeacher to an almost absurd degree. Koro-Sensei is a cool, incredibly friendly and approachable teacher with a great deal of patience who encourages outside-of-the-box thinking for all his delinquent students, uses positive reinforcement constantly to successfully raise all their grades, tailors his lesson plans to his students' individual strengths, is willing to stay after school to listen to his students' problems or just hang out and help them on any hobby or activity, will intervene if the student has a troubled home life, and protect his students at the cost of his own life. If it weren't for that whole "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt I'm going to blow up the planet if I'm not assassinated by March]]" thing he would literally be the perfect teacher.

* Rod Belding from ''Series/{{Saved by the Bell}}''. Later subverted when it turns out how much of a flake Rod is, willing to ditch his students on a field trip to have a date with a stewardess. Mr Belding tried to be the cool teacher, but was generally the ReasonableAuthorityFigure. It was only when a third party entered the scene that Belding would team up with his students and let his CoolTeacher flag fly.
* A repeated sketch in ''Series/TheArmstrongAndMillerShow'' (the Creator/Channel4 version) spoofed this. The skits starred a really CoolTeacher who would use his unorthodox teaching method and passion to teach life lessons and make sure his students get the most out of their education... until the bell would ring, at which point he would become the ultimate ApatheticTeacher, immediately pulling out a newspaper, sitting down and telling his students to "fuck off", in the process completely abandoning or even directly ''contradicting'' whatever message he'd been trying to teach mere seconds ago.

* Dumbbell is shaping up to be one in Blog/AskHoopsAndDumbbell. He's only a student teacher, but it only takes him one day with his students to start wracking up CoolTeacher points.

->''You had a cool teacher, right? ''"Just call me Ralph. I can't stand that 'Sir' shit."'' Sure you did. Talking to you on your level, like a mate rather than an authority figure, about the Inspiral Carpets or Nirvana, and pulling an acoustic guitar out of the cupboard when all that learning shit got a bit boring, yeah? It happened to us all. We laughed, we connected, we got terrible grades at the end of the year, then found out they never returned after the summer break because they'd fingered a sixth form girl.''

* Subverted in Disney's ''Disney/BigHero6''. [[spoiler: Professor Callaghan genuinely cares about his students, but his hatred and embitterment towards Krei after his daughter his seemingly killed because of him drove him to become Yokai, and therefore oppose his former students after they become the Big Hero 6.]]
* The science teacher in WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}} sort of counts, though it can be a little unclear due to the gloomy tone of the film. But he is clearly very excited about his subject, illustrates his points with theatrical story telling, gestures and chalk drawings and chides the adults of the town for being small-minded and preventing him from expanding their children's minds, even if he has an (on the surface) fairly threatening way of saying it. He also listens and gives advice to Victor when he asks him a question outside of the classroom and tells him its important to love his project. Note that most of the class is very excited about the Science Fair, and that the children don't seem very happy with their substitute when he is fired.

* Brendan in ''{{Film/Warrior}}'' is shown to be very popular and effective with his students. Once they learn he is also a {{Badass}} MMA fighter, he proves even ''more'' popular.

* Mr. Ratburn from ''Arthur'', while also a SternTeacher, is cool in that he makes sure his students learn what they need to and also practice thinking for themselves. In addition, he has an affinity for stuff kids like, such as cartoons and cake.
