* In ''Webcomic/{{Guardian}}'', Lady Ginnem--the first summoner Lulu guarded in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''--is portrayed this way for Lulu, taking an interest in her while Lulu is living in the temple orphanage and teaching her magic. (Sadly, her MentorOccupationalHazard is preinstalled by canon.)

* The Wrestling/{{Mistico}} gimmick originated around Fray Tormenta mentoring one of his orphans who desired to become a luchador. Wrestling/{{CMLL}} had planned for there to be multiple mentored luchadors, starting with El Sagrado, but when he proved to be unconvincing, the angle was abandoned, with Místico being [[TheArtifact the only reminder of it's existence]] due to his [[BreakOutCharacter breakout status]].

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] * Wrestling/{{Rikidozan}} to BI Cannon in the Japan Wrestling Association. Unfortunately, he never got to finish the job as he died from a stab infection after a {{Yakuza}} attack, causing his two disciples, Giant Baba and Wrestling/AntonioInoki, to tear the promotion apart in absence. * Wrestling/KentaKobashi served as one to Wrestling/KentaKobayashi, the future ace of Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH, prior to his learning excursion to South America. The name similarity was just a coincidence, with the latter going by KENTA to distinguish himself. * The Wrestling/{{Mistico}} gimmick originated around Fray Tormenta mentoring one of his orphans who desired to become a luchador. * In Gateway Championship Wrestling's latter days, Wrestling/MsChif mentored Jackal and Cabal, originally for the purpose of defeating her enemies, her own mentor Johnny Greenpeace and Wrestling/DaizeeHaze, the trainee of her [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston tag team partner.]] Jackal ended up taking her place in the light heavyweight division when she left too.[[/folder]]

* ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'': The archetype is continually referred to as "the mysterious old wizard." Harry gets two, Quirrel and Dumbledore, and Hermione has some frustrations finding someone willing to mentor her. "Dumbledore refused to be my mysterious old wizard, do you know where I can write to request another one?" In the end, they decide [[spoiler:that since Hermione is actually the hero of the story, that means Harry is her mysterious old wizard. It helps that it turns out he's technically sixty]].
