* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Tesshin Kushiya was so awed by Atsuma's Blood Pointer ability that, despite defeating her her, he sealed himself away in a cave on Okino Island in order to study and perfect the technique himself. Over time, he became such a formidable combatant, that not even S-rank Maken users could best him. Yet, he still believes his "fist" is only a pale imitation of hers.

* Guru Pathik in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', pictured above. He's a bit odd (the man lives on onion-banana juice smoothies!) but essentially good-natured.

* This trope is responsible for some confusion in the English-speaking parts of the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom: Much of the original concept came from sennin, so the term is normally translated as "hermit". Which is a problem, since the known Touhou sennin are as active as any other character. That said, Kasen (a sennin) lives in a hard-to-reach part of a mountain, and didn't get out much before the events that introduced her.
