* General Cross Marian from ''DGrayMan'' abuses his student Allen by making him gamble to pay off all his master's debts. The anime makes it worse, and takes it [[UptoEleven Up to Eleven]] when they do a filler-Episode 27: My Mentor General Cross. Whereupon, Cross has Allen doing slave labor, asks him to catch a lion for him, and corners him in alley ways to take his money.
* ''XxxHOLiC'' plays with this trope. Watanuki does all the housework for Yuuko, buys her booze, is the [[ChewToy Chew Toy]] for her spiritual tasks... without realizing she's teaching him and [[spoiler:training him to eventually replace her as the shopkeeper]].

* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', we have ancient grandmaster Happosai, and of course Ranma's own master(and father) Genma. It should be noted, though, that Ranma himself is an equally enormous mooch, so maybe he actually DID learn something?

Allen has only ever said he gambled under Cross' care to pay off debts.
