* In ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', Professor Quirrell has studied Muggle martial arts under one such master. The master ended up teaching him one of the most important lessons in his life - how to lose. Unfortunately, the master then ran afoul of Voldemort, who also wanted to learn from him only to be rebuffed. Voldemort then went [[Film/KillBill Pai Mei]] on the dojo (only with magic).

* Literature/HarryPotter has a much closer relationship with the headmaster, Dumbledore, than is usual for a student, to the point of the Professor being almost a surrogate father. In the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince sixth book]] Dumbledore even gives him special lessons.

* 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.''

* In Creator/TamoraPierce's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series, Tris is trained by Niko, the super duper famous mage. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], in that the rules of magic dictate it.
** Specifically, any mage that discovers magic in someone is responsible for teaching them or finding a mage with the same kind of magic to take over instruction. Mages who can control lightning like Tris are both rare and [[PowerIncontinence tend to get themselves killed young]] so Niko is responsible.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10092339/1/Ranma-Saotome-Chi-Master Ranma Saotome, Chi Master]]'' has an extremely skilled Indo-Chinese guru living in Hong Kong, one very well-known among practitioners of chi manipulation. She rarely takes students, but those she accepts almost invariably become influential members of the martial arts world. Ranma spent a year as her apprentice, which led to him [[TookALevelInBadass becoming a good deal stronger and more skilled than he was in canon]].

* Played with Zeref in ''Manga/FairyTail''. He's the most powerful wizard in history, and is [[TheDreaded a boogeyman]] for mages all over the continent and he takes in Mavis and her friends as his students not because they had talent or the like, but simply to repay Mavis for [[PetTheDog her act of kindness toward him]]. They would all later on become the most powerful mages in the series.

* Lord Muten-Roshi from ''Manga/DragonBall'' is implied to be this. When he offers to train Goku, Yamcha (watching nearby) comments on how the master never takes on students, and when Kuririn comes asking for training, Roshi simply tells him to go home. Then he changes his mind when Kuririn shows him some dirty mags.

Then [[DirtyOldMan he changes his mind when Kuririn shows him some dirty mags.mags]]. Later when Yamcha ask to become one of his students he turns him down, saying that two was his limit. He quickly changes him mind when Bulma says that she would come and visit if he took Yamcha in.
**Master Roshi's rival, the Crane Hermit, is also picky about who he trains. As far as we know his only students are his younger brother, Tao, Tien, and Chiaotzu.
**Master Korin, Goku's other teacher, only teaches those who can climb Korin Tower. He trained most of the original cast.
**Much like Korin, King Kai only trains those who make it to the end of Snake Way. Although he trains Piccolo, Tien, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu, Goku is the only one he teaches the Spirit Bomb and Kaioken to.
**In the entire series, Piccolo only trained Gohan. Although he does help Goku teach Goten and Trunks the FusionDance.
**Goku himself falls into this. By the end of ''Z'' he only personally trained Gohan and takes Uub as his students.
