* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the [[Literature/RailwaySeries]] [[spoiler: Sir Handel/Falcon and Peter Sam/Stuart assume Duke is 'dead' in the present day of the books, (or it's heavily implied), but it turns out in book 25 that he's fine and rescued.]]

* ''Literature/WolfHall'' portrays the relationship between Cardinal Wolsey and Thomas Cromwell as that of mentor and protege. The two share an affinity as extremely intelligent but lowborn men having to deal with the gameplaying and tantrums of {{Upper Class Twit}}s and {{Social Climber}}s in Henry VIII's court. Even years after Wolsey's death, Cromwell often remembers tidbits of his advice and frequently asks himself what Wolsey would do in a given situation, and comes to regard him as having been a ParentalSubstitute. Cromwell also serves in this role himself for his ward Rafe Sadler and the small army of apprentices, orphans, and urchins he looks after at his family home, wanting to give other smart but resourceless boys the same good fortune he had.

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' has Kuroh Yatogami's late master, Ichigen Miwa, the [[SuperEmpowering Colorless King]], a wise old seer who found him dying in the woods as a child, [[EmergencyTransformation made Kuroh his Clansman]], and [[HappilyAdopted took him in]]. He taught Kuroh swordsmanship, and plenty of other skills, like cooking, and [[CrazyPrepared piloting a helicopter]] - possibly because he foresaw that Kuroh would need them. He also foresaw Kuroh's [[ShipTease relationship with]] the main character (mentioned in the [[AllThereInTheManual novels]], and possibly sent him on his mission so that they would find each other. There's also Kuroh's senior pupil, Yukari Mishakuji, the one who went bad. Both of them [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee are fond of]] shoehorning Miwa's haiku poetry into every possible situation. ([[RunningJoke Creepy.]])

Even though this character is better skilled, faster and more experienced than TheProtagonist, they aren't the Hero, either because they are not TheChosenOne, because they have already [[RetiredBadass grown too old for the task]] or [[HeroOfAnotherStory have their own job to do]]. Their role is to [[ChekhovsSkill introduce a new skill]] or [[TrainingFromHell sharpen the current skills]] of the protagonist, often hoping to [[PassingTheTorch pass the torch]] because they know their career is [[EndOfAnAge coming to an end]]. This character [[MentorOccupationalHazard may die]], so that the protagonist can [[InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn learn to stand on their own two feet]].
