* Paladin Magnus in ''GroundControl'', performing a YouShallNotPass in an Order mission where you have to hold off against an endless wave of enemies. Somehow, self-destructing an Order APC creates a huge crater and destroys the supposed endless waves of enemies.

** ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Ben Urich does his best efforts to mentor Karen Page in the art of investigative reporting. And then Wilson Fisk chokes him to death for (being tricked by Karen into) speaking to Fisk's mother. In season 2, Mitchell Ellison takes up the mantle as a mentor for Karen, but avoids this trope.
** ''Series/LukeCage2016'': Pop is Luke's first mentor. Then gets killed in the ''second'' episode in the crossfire of an attempted hit on Chico (Tone was trying to kill Chico, but due to his decision to use two submachine guns instead of a simple pistol, ended up nonfatally wounding Chico and Pop caught a stray to the neck). Likewise, Squabbles, who functioned as a mentor for Luke in prison, got killed by Shades and Comanche when Luke began plotting to expose Rackham's corruption.

* Jesus Christ from ''Literature/TheBible'' is possibly the ultimate example of this trope.
** Averted [[spoiler:as he [[UnexplainedRecovery returns to life]] after three days of being dead.]]
** In a manner of speaking, John the Baptist also qualifies, as Jesus' "older" cousin and the guy who baptized him. He also qualifies in that he explicitly states he's not here to overshadow TheHero.



* PlayedWith in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''; Dante's mentor is the Hell-shadow of a pagan poet, so he can't die in the ordinary sense. Instead, the poet disappears once Dante has scaled Purgatory and strengthened his will enough to be independent of his ghostly father figure. It is assumed the pagan's shadow returned to his eternal death in Hell, a fate which nearly moves Dante to tears.

* Literature/TheFourGospels: John the Baptist is a prophet who is active before Jesus and Jesus even goes to him to be baptized, even though both know Jesus is the greater of the two. From there, Jesus only starts to minister and do his great deeds when John the Baptist is arrested by Herod, who will not long after have him executed.

Compare/contrast DeadSidekick. Maybe the result of OpposedMentors. Not all mentors fall into this, of course. A great number, if not most, of those that don't fall to the hazards of the occupation eventually turn out to have been a BrokenPedestal; then the inevitable death is either a particularly emotionally charged hero-kills-villain or RedemptionEqualsDeath instead. Then post-humous character development can turn them into a RebuiltPedestal.

** Yondu Udonta raised Peter Quill and doubled as both his mentor and adoptive father. He dies in the climax of ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' while pulling a HeroicSacrifice for Peter. In a variation, Peter had already started his journey quite a while prior to this; however, Yondu had just recently come to save Peter and joined the Guardians before his death.
