* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has the [[TheOrder Psijic Order]], the oldest monastic order in Tamriel, founded during the ancient times by an [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] sect who rejected the transition to [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra]] worship from ancestor worship, known to them as the "Old Way" or "Elder Way." They settled on the island of Artaeum, the third largest island in the Summerset Isles, which has been known to disappear for centuries at a time for reasons only known to the Order. Thousands of years later, they are now more well known as a reclusive order of immensely powerful [[MagicalSociety magic users]], who have SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic to the point where they can [[RealityWarper utilize magic in ways (and on a scale)]] unmatched by any other extant group in Tamriel. Many magically adept prospective students seek to join the Order from all over Tamriel, but very few are ever accepted. It is said that the Psijics use a "complex, ritualized method" for selecting initiates that is "not understood by the common man." In the roughly 500 years between Artaeum's reappearance in the 2nd Era until 3E 430, only 17 initiates were taken on by the Order. However, from 3E 430 to 3E 432, leading up to the [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion Crisis]], the Order accepted an unheard of 30 initiates.

* Kaname Sengoku in ''Manga/WelcomeToTheBallroom'' is a downplayed example. He's a world-class dancer who ends up mentoring [[TheHero Fujita]] ([[BigBrotherMentor in a very informal way]]), but it's only much later that the viewer (and Fujita) learns that he's never taken a student before. RealityEnsues in that despite being an excellent dancer, he's still new at being a teacher and fumbles with teaching on occasion.

* In the first ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'' book, ''God Stalk'', Master Penari--who's known as the greatest thief in the city of Tai-tastigon--takes Jame as his apprentice. For fifty-six years, ever since [[ImpossibleTheft he stole the Eye of Abarraden]], everyone's wanted to be his apprentice, but Jame is the only one he ever takes. He chooses her to screw over the rest of the ThievesGuild.
-->''It was obvious now why Penari had chosen her, a Kencyr, to be his apprentice. After decades of pressure to make him reveal his secrets, he had taken revenge on them all by choosing to confide not only in an outsider but in one whose very race was to him a guarantee of her incorruptibility.''
