* Joruus C'baoth in TheThrawnTrilogy calls Luke to him, and for a few days Luke follows him around trying to learn from him, but quickly comes to believe that C'baoth was insane and had possibly fallen to the Dark Side. C'baoth believes himself to be [[AGodAmI the ultimate authority]], naturally above [[WhatMeasureIsANonSuper those who are not Jedi]]. This is cinched when Luke tries to leave with Mara Jade and they are attacked, and later when they find that he was working with Thrawn.
** Interestingly played with in OutboundFlight, with Jorus C'baoth ([[CloningGambit the original]]) and his interest in the fourteen-year-old Anakin Skywalker. The original C'baoth had a superiority complex and beliefs [[InTheBlood much like his clone's]], though slightly less obvious (since C'baoth hasn't actually gone insane ''yet''). Obi-Wan is uneasy about this. Anakin, in some of the most subtle this-kid-isn't-gonna-turn-out-right characterization in or out of the ExpandedUniverse, thinks that C'baoth is awesome. He solves things so ''quickly'', and he doesn't take nonsense from anyone.

* [[EvilSorcerer The Morgawr]] to [[DarkMagicalGirl The Ilse Witch]] in ''TheVoyageOfTheJerleShannara''.
* Viv Ivins in the LeftBehind prequel books serves this role to Marilena Carpathia when she seeks to be pregnant and ends up becoming the mother to the future Antichrist Nicolae Carpathia until [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness she is killed off]].
* In the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' the man whose name is not Jack Bannister is a varient of this for Fisk. The skills he was teaching were along the lines of conning and burlary, so it wasn't as though Fisk didn't know he was a bad guy, he just turned out to be a much greater {{Jerkass}} than Fisk had first thought. His last lesson to Fisk is that life sucks, and when Fisk finally recovers from the schooling, Jack tries to reinforce the lesson by [[spoiler:having Michael tossed off a cliff]].

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', it is revealed that [[spoiler:Harrison Wells]], Barry's mentor, is apparently also [[spoiler:the man in yellow, i.e., the Reverse Flash]]. The reason for that is [[spoiler:Eobard Thawne, the Flash's nemesis from the distant future, went back in time to when Barry was 12 to try to kill him, only to be stopped by Future!Barry. Angry, Thawne killed Barry's mother out of spite, but discovered that the time jump robbed him of a stable connection to the Speed Force, stranding him in the past. Killing and taking the face of the real Dr. Wells, Thawne built the particle accelerator several years earlier than intended in order to create the Flash himself in order to eventually use Barry's connection to the Speed Force to get back home]].

Later, [[spoiler:Barry's new mentor Jay Garrick, the Flash of Earth 2, turns out to be the same person as Zoom, the evil speedster of Earth 2. As Zoom, he keeps sending enemies to try and kill Barry. As Jay, he trains Barry to be faster. His end goal is to siphon away Barry's speed for himself in order to cure his degenerative condition, caused by his abuse of the Velocity SuperSerum]].

** Angel himself, or rather, [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Angelus]], was this himself for the Spike and Penn. He taught Penn to murder his family and leave a signature cross carved in his victims' cheeks. Spike has said that while Drusilla sired him, Angelus was the one that taught him to be a ruthless, evil killer.

* John Milton in ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate''. Curiously, he doesn't actively encourage Kevin to become an AmoralAttorney (while indirectly encouraging him by surrounding him with the perks of being one) because he wants Kevin to choose that path himself.

* TeresaEdgerton's ''[[{{Celydonn}} The Castle of the Silver Wheel]]'': the dwarf Brangwengwen plays this straight with Gwenlliant - Brangwengwen, a partially trained, elderly witch, knows the castle well enough to get into the Princess Diaspad's old rooms and thus to her old spellbooks (which feature BlackMagic), and offers instruction in witchcraft to Gwenlliant (who otherwise has no teacher, and few people to talk to).

* Bernkastel from UminekoNoNakuKoroNi serves as a meta example to the player as much of her words are actually useful ways to think of the mystery. She's essentially [[spoiler: a MUCH more malicious version]] of Kreia above. Also a rare non corruptor example
