* He has the capacity to be nurturing, but Professor Horace Slughorn of ''Literature/HarryPotter'' sifts through and lavishes attention and extra help on the students he believes will go on to fame, success and fortune; he can then enjoy receiving attention, company and correspondence with prize-winning politicians, professional athletes, researchers and powerful witches and wizards of all kinds. He enjoys the implication that he can shape the decisions of these people and that he's influential enough to get fat on gifts from members of his Slug Club.
--->''"Horace," said Dumbledore, relieving Harry of the responsibility to say any of this, "likes his comfort. ... He has never wanted to occupy the throne himself; he prefers the backseat--more room to spread out, you see. He used to handpick favorites at Hogwarts, sometimes for their ambition or their brains, sometimes for their charm or their talent, and he had an uncanny knack for choosing those who would go on to become outstanding in their various fields. Horace formed a kind of club of his favorites with himself at the center, making introductions, forging useful contacts between members, and always reaping some kind of benefit in return, whether a free box of his favorite crystallized pineapple or the chance to recommend the next junior member of the Goblin Liaison Office." Harry had a sudden and vivid mental image of a great swollen spider, spinning a web around it, twitching a thread here and there to bring its large and juicy flies a little closer..''

* In the [[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy Raidou Kuzunoha]] [[RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon games]], Raidou's boss, Narumi, lounges around the headquarters of his detective agency while his apprentice runs all kinds of dangerous errands for him. (He's not a bad guy, though, and does get a bit more involved in the case in the second game.)

* Mildred accuses Charlie of being this to Amita, in ''{{Numb3rs}}''. She raises a couple of fair points about how he uses Amita's time, attention, research, and resources for [=FBI=] work. This leads to Amita carefully distancing herself . . . [[StatusQuoIsGod a little]].

* This is Rean and Sara's relationship in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel''. Rean, the student, has to put up with a lot of things from his master, Sara. Some of it is basically Rean helping out the student council on jobs she should be doing herself, investigating the old schoolhouse, and having to reconcile his other classmates with their tense relationships.

* 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?
