If the character in question is a principal, he may also be DeanBitterman if he is doing out of a sense of authority or obsession with order - though not always, as sometime they may be doing it out genuine concern for their charges. Depending on how determined NonGivingUpSchoolGuy is, he may prove to be a BadassTeacher with his determination to track his charge down.

More FridgeLogic occurs when one considers how apparently negative consequences for non-attendance only occur if NonGivingUpSchoolGuy finds TheProtagonist. Not actually showing up to class multiple times really results in F's, phone calls, letters to parents, etc. (Usually {{Handwaved}} by them being tricky enough to forge excuses, but in RealLife this can only go so far.)

* If ''WaterlooRoad'' wasn't half full of these, [[DysfunctionJunction most of the students wouldn't be in the school]]. Rachel Mason was a prominent example, as is Chris Mead.

* Ex-Green Beret Principal Skinner of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is our TropeNamer. In episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E20TheBoyWhoKnewTooMuch The Boy Who Knew Too Much]]" he tracked Bart across Springfield (even climbing a cliff and [[Film/WestWorld walking straight through a river after Bart cut the rope bridge over it]]) to get him back to class. Bart, upon seeing this, gives us the BuffySpeak TropeNamer line. ([[DontExplainTheJoke The joke being that]] [[BaitAndSwitch he was set up to say]] [[SublimeRhyme "Invincible Principal."]])

Added DiffLines:

* The teachers in ''VideoGame/SkoolDaze'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/BackToSkool'' can normally be knocked down with a well-placed catapult pellet, but if you get given too many lines, or meet one of the instant game over conditions, they will pursue you relentlessly, catapult pellets pinging harmlessly off them, until they catch and expel you.

* In the non-silent era of PinkPanther, there was a story where Pink was a teacher and the Principal ordered him to make a troublemaker interested in school. Pink took the boy to a park and the Principal followed them to get proof to convince his superior to fire Pink. In the end, not only an accident destroyed his proof but his superior, who was [[OhCrap the boy's grandmother]], fired him.

* ''CasperTheFriendlyGhost'': Like in the above case, Little Audrey spent most of an episode trying to avoid a truant officer. Once he finally caught her, he learned the school was closed for a holiday. To make up for it, he helped Audrey with her fishing.
