** Kreia states fairly early that she used to be a Sith, and tries to impart upon the main character the lessons of self-reliance, how doing good rarely solves anything, manipulating others to do your bidding, and a whole lot of other lessons that run contrary to the Jedi code. [[spoiler:She is also the BigBad, but unlike a TreacherousAdvisor she never uses her mentor position to backstab the protagonist, as she actually cares for The Exile.]]

* ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} of the DCU does this as a hobby. He once acted as an Evil Mentor to Terra, before he realized too late that she was even more evil than him. He also tried to turn Nightwing evil in the "Renegade" storyline, but Nightwing turned that around by acting as a ''Good'' Mentor to Slade's daughter Rose which led to her HeelFaceTurn. He also founded an EvilCounterpart to the ComicBook/TeenTitans ''twice''. Slade in general has a disturbing interest in corrupting the next generation of superbeings.

* A book in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]] talks about how Nocturnal's cowl was stolen. A young thief tries to steal from a master thief, who summarily catches her but lets her be his protege. Eventually they plan a heist to [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu steal the cowl of Nocturnal]]. The young thief is to wait in a nearby tree, wait for Nocturnal to remove her cowl, then let the elder make a distraction. When the distraction never comes, the young thief attempts to steal the cowl without help. After she is caught, she looks over to realize that Nocturnal's cowl is gone. When asked who she is, she says, [[IronicEcho "I'm the distraction."]]

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': The storyline "The Fall of Deadworld" set in an AlternateUniverse features the gruff Judge Fairfax as its protagonist, who just wants to ride out the ensuing apocalypse. It turns out that in Law School he was the favorite protegé of none other than [[OmnicidalManiac Judge Death]], the monster who is destroying that world. Death still wants Fairfax back in his inner circle as his fourth lieutenant.

** Roose tries to be to Robb. He definitely is one to Ramsay. His "mentoring" of them is actually the opposite approach to reach the same goal: Roose tries to make Robb become more sadistic and cruel, while he tries the opposite with Ramsay. In the end, it's for the ultimate goal of making them embrace his own pragmatic villainy.

** Bolin had three of these. The first two are Shady Shin and Varrick, neither of whom manage to do anything to corrupt him other than other causing him to stretch his morals with less-than-legal tools of the trade. He also becomes one of Kuvira's lieutenants in the fourth book and unwittingly does a lot of morally grey enforcement in her campaign to reunite the Earth Kingdom. Eventually he cottons on and helps overthrow her.

* [[MagnificentBastard Littlefinger]] from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' ends up becoming this for [[spoiler: [[BreakTheCutie Sansa Stark]].]]. He has... [[ParentalIncest paternal]] feelings for her.



* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the Three-Eyed Crow [[spoiler:aka Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers]] serves as one of these to Bran... maybe. The ambiguity isn't whether or not he's a mentor, because he is training Bran in how to use his greenseer and warg abilities. The ambiguity comes from whether he really can be considered evil. [[spoiler:Before he went and merged with a tree, Bloodraven went to truly extreme lengths to destroy House Blackfyre and their rival claim to the Iron Throne, to the point that King Aegon V, the direct beneficiary of his actions, sent him to the Wall in disgust. On the other hand, his extermination of the Blackfyres brought nearly half a century of relative peace to Westeros, so it could well be a case of TheExtremistWasRight, and Bloodraven is on record giving IDidWhatIHadToDo as his reason for his actions. And given the nature of [[ProphecyTwist greensight]], he may not have had a choice in the matter. Despite his intentions, however, most of Westeros remembers Bloodraven as a villainous sorcerer and EvilChancellor.]]
