* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Mace Windu is quite cynical in his view of galactic affairs, compared to many of the other Jedi, such as [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan Kenobi]]; he also doesn't seem to like [[DarkMessiah Anakin]] much at all and he opposed little Anakin's training from the start because he thought the boy was too old to begin training. It's implied in the ''Revenge of the Sith'' Novelisation some of this is down to him watching his beloved Republic crumble.

* Stick from ''Series/Daredevil2015'' is cynical to the point that he considers Murdock's idealism and belief things can get better to be a ''character flaw.''

* Evangeline from ''MahouSenseiNegima'', to a frightening degree. TrainingFromHell aside (of which there is much), one of her major lessons for the main lead is that no act in this world can be completely good like he [[WideEyedIdealist thinks/hopes]], and that being evil comes naturally as a part of living. She also treats him like crap.

* Hijikata from ''PeacemakerKurogane'' towards Tetsunosuke. He appears pretty strict and cynical towards Tetsunosuke (not really directly teaching Tetsunosuke fighting, and mainly having Tetsunosuke serve him tea). However, deep down, it's suggested numerous times that he ''does'' care about Tetsunosuke.

* By the time ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' rolls around Leliana is burnt out and distressed over the threat and upset over Justinia's death, and her grooming of The Inquisitor leans towards the ruthless to the point where threatening assassination of their family is legitimate tactics. She can also be asked about being a bard: Leliana offers to train you which mainly consists of non too subtle hints not to take this path.

* Ash-dan in ''[[WarchildSeries Warchild]]'' is this to Jos, his older brother's student. How he treats his own student, Hadu, is never addressed, but he likely wasn't as cynical.

* [[KnightInSourArmor Dr. Cox]] to [=J.D.=] in ''{{Scrubs}}''. He is [=J.D.=] guide of sorts, but he is completely sarcastic and seems to detest [=J.D.=].

* Gambino from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' once told his adopted son Guts that he should trust nothing but his own brains and brawn since people are ruthless bastards who will do anything to survive or for the sake of ambition. Gambino even told Guts that he shouldn't trust him. [[AbusiveParents This was one of the only times Gambino acted remotely fatherly to him.]]

* On a ''good day'', Master Fei of ''HowIKilledYourMaster'' is one of these. Mostly, he's a {{Jerkass}}, but he has recently taken to giving Wong some TrainingFromHell.
* Javanshin in OverlordofRavenfell is a sarcastic bastard that has his doubts as to whether Razin can actually become a competent Overlord, a fact he often decides to point out.
