* Ms. Erlenemyer from ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet''. The biology skeleton in her classroom was the skeleton of ''the last kid to have gotten on her bad side'', which leads to AP believing she's actually a supervillain. Long story short, she isn't and it gets her transformed into the evil psychic Queen Mindbender by an EldritchAbomination, making her one of Atomic Puppet's most dangerous foes.

** Principal Wartz himself has his moments of being cranky, explosively ill-tempered and/or unreasonable, particularly later in the run of the show. It got to the point that it was brought to attention by the characters in the episode "Principal Simmons".

* In this [[http://www.tvspots.tv/video/1325/HERSHEY--TEACHER Hershey's commercial]], a class of 2nd graders bid farewell to their kind-hearted teacher for the summer, only to wind up with a menacing replacement when they reach 3rd grade.

* ''ComicVook/{{Urbanus}}'': Meester Kweepeer is a sadist teacher, UpToEleven, though this could also be the result of Urbanus' bad behaviour. He beats the pupils up, gives them impossible to answer exam questions, orders them to strip naked so that they are unable to cheat during a test, takes credit for stuff they discovered and makes everybody repeat the same grade each year.

* UpToEleven in the [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Chick Tract]] ''Big Daddy?''. A biology teacher '''erupts''' at a child for quietly stating he believes in creationism, and only lets him stay in class just so he can "[[ForTheEvulz tear his beliefs to shreds]]" in front of the class. Since it's a Jack Chick work, we see the kid tear [[BreakTheHaughty his beliefs apart front of the class]] and, [[AuthorAppeal of course]], [[EasyEvangelism convert his classmates into Evangelism]].

* ''ComicBooks/{{Archie}}'''s teacher Miss Grundy did the same thing as Charlie Brown's teacher (see below) in December of 2013, assigning ''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'' over Christmas break.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Zbeng}}!'', one of the main characters, is this trope taken to the absurd, a green dress wearing monster named Anuga Zaafani. In her own personal book, it is even showed how she drove to extremes Peter Parker (drove him up the wall), Clark Kent (green dress... guess what material), Garfield the Cat (decided to take a vacation in Thailand), and her day schedule consists of waking up, falling asleep, and eleven cases of shouting in between. In the end, where everybody is supposed to have their graves shown -- she is alive and well among everyone else's graves. Naturally, she'll bury them all.



[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* Chalky, the cadaverously evil teacher with an impressive collection of canes and a love of terrifying schoolchildren and other teachers, from the newspaper cartoons by Creator/{{Giles}}.
* Ms. Butcher from ''ComicStrip/{{Zits}}''. She supposedly writes Jeremy's grades in blood. To make things clear, one time Jeremy and his best friend Hector got the same score, a 94. Jeremy was still given a C- (and the aformentioned grade written in blood) and Hector got an A written in perfumed lilac ink.
* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'':
** In one week-long series Paige's biology teacher Mr. Ting assigned 60 chapter of reading for a test the next day, thinking it would "allieve the tension" of the torrential rainstorms they were having. This only got worse for Paige, even though you can't blame the rest on Ting; the storm caused a blackout that made the assignment an even greater nightmare. And the ''worst'' part of it? While she managed to complete the reading assignment, [[ShaggyDogStory Ting had no access to his computer due to the blackout, and wasn't able to hold the test.]] (Meaning she had done it for nothing. I guess that wasn't technically his fault either, but he gave the assignment in the first place...)
** In another strip, he showed disappointment that Paige's lab reports were ''improving'', claiming they were a source of entertainment for him.
** He seems a little more understanding in [[http://www.foxtrot.com/2013/09/08/test-scheduling/ this strip]], possibly because the cafeteria staff can be even ''more'' sadistic at times.
** In another strip, Paige's unnamed math teacher handed out the test sheets for the final exams dressed in a GrimReaper costume.
* In the Fort Collins ''Collegian'', a comic strip featured a sadist professor. Aptly named the "PROfessor", the strip showed a professor (implied to be teaching chemistry) throughout a year at Colorado State University. PlayedForLaughs, since half the stuff would get a professor fired faster than you can say TropeNamer. Such antics included:
** Scheduling office hours at the same time as lecture
*** Then misleading students to the physical location of his office with signs pointing to the other door.
** Apparently holding his teacher's assistants captive
** Miscalculating someone's grade by 20 points, then taking 20 points as a regrading fee
** And on the final, stapling the syllabus for the next class (taught by him) to the test and saying "Since most of you guys are going to fail anyways, I'm going to get a head-start!"
* Mrs. Wormwood from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' is an interesting take on this trope. Calvin (being Calvin) believes his behavior is justified, even appropriate, so when she doles out completely reasonable punishments, it appears to him that she is a sadist. In reality, it's more a case of Calvin being a [[InvertedTrope Sadist Student.]]

* In ''MyImmortal'', every teacher except Trelawney and Proffesor Sinister are out to get Enoby and her posse (and half of them are perverts of some sort to boot). They're only ever shown yelling at Ebony for petty reason, and otherwise don't contribute much to the plot.

* Master Shifu initially comes across as this towards [[Main/AscendedFanboy Po]] in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', putting him through a lot of butt-kicking and torture and calling it Training, because he believes that Po is not worthy of the title of Dragon Warrior (a position to which Grand Master Oogway himself appointed Po). Later Shifu becomes more of a SternTeacher and sincerely tries to teach Po the ways of kung fu, through much discipline and exercise.

* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fanfiction set at the Assassins' Guild School, the Teacher-Assassins develop a canonical theme where pupils who have been slack, or lazy, or ''over-confident'' (or who have simply annoyed the teacher) are sent out on humiliating tasks, or painful assignments which are bound to fail. This is partly to instruct, educate and correct the pupil, and partly so the teaching staff can compare notes and have a jolly good laugh in the staffroom later. Assignments given by teachers have included Extra Elephants at the city zoo ("Wear old clothes. A shovel and a wheelbarrow will be provided."); being sent to the University to research supernatural entities, whose theoretical inhumation can win prizes (the unfortunate student involved ended up looking at the wrong entities, and became catatonic with terror); or merely being sent to deliver a message to Sam Vimes.

This is partly to instruct, educate and correct the pupil, and partly so the teaching staff can compare notes and have a jolly good laugh in the staffroom later. Assignments given by teachers have included Extra Elephants at the city zoo ("Wear old clothes. A shovel and a wheelbarrow will be provided."); being sent to the University to research supernatural entities, whose theoretical inhumation can win prizes (the unfortunate student involved ended up looking at the wrong entities, and became catatonic with terror); or merely being sent to deliver a message to Sam Vimes. A partial list of Sadist Teacher assignments might read:
** Miss Alice Band: fics such as ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8774066/17/There-s-nothing-like-a-fresh-pair-of-eyes-is-there fresh Pair of Eyes]]'' develop her canonical tendency to send pupils on the dreaded Vimes Run;
** Doctor Davinia Bellamy ''(Botany)'': pupils offending Davinia are assigned chores such as pruning the Pyramid Strangler Vines, vegetation that fights back;
** Doctor Smith-Rhodes ''(Zoology and Natural History)'': Extra Elephants, as detailed above; or cleaning out the habitats of other lively and territorial animal species; or simply tending the needs of Acerian Skunks, who are friendly creatures who show appreciation to the kind human by spraying them.
** Miss Gillian Lansbury ''(Art)'': Grinding pigments to make your own bespoke paints. [[note]] Even well into the last century, some of the most vivid and long-lasting colours could only be obtained by processing things like arsenic, lead, cobalt, mercury salts, cyanic compounds, et c. And this is Art for ''Assassins''.There are ''no'' non-toxic paints in Miss Lansbury's paintbox.[[/note]]
** Miss Joan Sanderson-Reeves ''(Domestic Science)'' Cleaning the ovens. [[note]]Dirty hard work at the best of times. But ovens last used to bake Lord Downey's ''special'' almond fancies and peppermint sweetmeats...[[/note]]
* Miss Joyce Tanner ''(Arts and Crafts)'' - will send an errant pupil out on Work Experience at the abbatoir or in the tanning yards, so they gain an appreciation of leatherworking at all stages from living beast to completed belt and scabbard.

* Ed, Edd, n Eddy Z has this trope as its backstory: when president George W. Bush passed the No Child Left Behind Act, American congressmen started cutting corners when hiring teachers to teach America's students. These teachers made America's children and teenagers [[UptoEleven participate in medical and military experiments]]. It eventually got so bad that the nation's students (which included a group of three saiyans) [[ThisMeansWar waged war on their educators]], an effort in which they got support from the U.S. military. One of these teachers, Professor Utonium, is the [[BigBad]].
