* Amber O'Neal claimed Amanda Rodriguez as her trainee but after O'Neal was recognized by Wrestling/BulletClub as an official member she beat down Rodriguez in front of them at a SHINE event to demonstrate how to "{{squash|match}}" a rookie. Even when Rodriguez found some success as a Sicaria under new mentors Wrestling/IvelisseVelez and Wrestling/LaRosaNegra she was cut off again by O'Neal, who joined C4, a group dedicated to destroying Las Sicarias.

* Telvanni [[TheArchmage Master Wizard]] Neloth is one to his apprentice, Talvas Fathryon. Asking Talvas whether Neloth is a good teacher results in Talvas replying that while he is exactly as powerful as he claims to be, he mostly sees Talvas as a servant, teaches him almost nothing and cruelly punishes him when he fails.

* This is one of the first things to separate Dr. Kelso from Dr. Cox in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'': Kelso is a Fair Weather Mentor, polite and charming to new interns...until they mess up, whereupon he scolds them and leaves them to their fates. Dr. Cox is acerbic and a bit of a SinkOrSwimMentor, but is also a good teacher who tries to protect and help his students even after he is no longer obliged to, looking after J.D. in particular even after he becomes the hospital's (co-) Chief Resident.

* General Cross is this to Allen Walker in ''DGrayMan''. He taught Allen to be an exorcist by throwing him into dangerous situations with little regard whether he survived, was a compulsive gambler who had a habit of running away and leaving his massive debts to Allen - so massive that simply mentioning them can make the ever-cheerful Allen teeter on the edge of the DespairEventHorizon - and when he decided Allen needed to head to headquarters, he knocked him unconscious and ran off, telling Allen to make his own way there.

This mentor sees their charge as an amusement at best and TheMillstone at worst. They make little or no special effort to adapt to their student, carrying on the same as they always did and expecting the newcomer to keep up. Often, they are there to illustrate why experts can make the very worst teachers, since they're usually very good at their job, but terrible at teaching someone else how to do it. Only the most determined, talented and self-motivated (or just plain masochistic) characters will survive apprenticeship to the FairWeatherMentor.

* Master Shifu in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' was originally this to Po because he didn't want to teach him at all. He thought Master Oogway made a mistake when he declared that Po was the Dragon Warrior. Most of the 'training' was merely an attempt to scare off Po. Shifu eventually gets better and becomes a genuine mentor to Po.
