* Oka-chan of ''LightNovel/KumoDesuGaNaniKa'' wanted to become the kind of teacher that her students could relate to, so she got involved in hobbies such as manga and video games. Students found her easy to befriend but deep down she worried that she'd built a fake persona and was failing as a teacher.

* Sonou Tsukuyo from ''VisualNovel/KindredSpiritsOnTheRoof'' is a 24-year-old classical literature teacher, but has the appearance of a girl half her age. This is what ends up drawing the affections of her 16-year-old student Kiri, who is obsessed with cute things. Surprisingly, she notably averts the childlike mannerisms of similar characters, and other characters note throughout the game just how mature and responsible she is.

* In 2016 April, the "tutor character" [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ellen-baker-new-horizon Ellen Baker]] from the Japanese New Horizon english textbook became a trend on the internet due to her surprisingly {{moe}} design and personality, especially when compared to the blander designs that the earlier versions had.

* Ringo Tsukimiya from ''VisualNovel/UtaNoPrinceSama'' is a subversion (as well as being a ''male'' WholesomeCrossdresser). He's cute, friendly and even tells his students to call him "Rin-chan", but he takes his job as a teacher seriously and he won't easily grant his students special favors.

* Minamo "Nyamo" Kurosawa and Yukari Tanizaki from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' are probably the {{Trope Codifier}}s, especially the latter. Yukari actually still lives with her parents and doesn't (Or at least ''[[DrivesLikeCrazy shouldn't]]'') have a driver's license; she might as well still be 15!

* Negi Springfield from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' would definitely be a gender-inverted exaggeration of this, being a ten-year-old male teaching a class of 31 fourteen-year-old girls. In some areas the trope is inverted entirely as he's far more mature than them, while in others he acts his age (he has the work ethic and emotional maturity of an adult, but still avoids taking baths and is easily flustered). The "-chan" suffix is actually never used for him, but the masculine "-kun" and "-bouzu" are often used by some of his students, even when addressing him directly.

* Ayane "Ayanecchi" Tezuka from ''Manga/RougeNoir'' is the very rare ''protagonist'' example. As well as [[BrokenBird quie more tragic]] than the standard.

* Megumi Sakura from ''Manga/SchoolLive''. The protagonists even call her "Megu-nee" instead of "Sakura-sensei" like she wants. She's a cute, young teacher with ''giant'' IdiotHair. [[spoiler:She's also been DeadAllAlong, being a PosthumousCharacter who was bitten zombies prior to the start of the series and thus became a zombie herself]]. However, Megumi is less of an immature ManChild than other examples, as she [[spoiler:sacrificed herself protecting the three main characters from zombies]] and generally acted as a responsible adult figure.

* ''ShokugekiNoSoma'': Jun Shiomi is this in spades. Is 34, looks like 16, acts like 12. In spite of being Tootsuki's resident spice expert and a leading authority on the chemistry of aromatic compounds, as well as the Shiomi Seminar's leader, she is excitable, scatter-brained, tends to ramble and holds a grudge against the main character for things his dad did when they were at school together. In fact, her 16-year-old adopted son Akira takes care of her as much as she takes care of him (if not more), something she is deeply emotionally conflicted about.

* Sonada Sarina from ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' seems to fill this trope. [[spoiler: Subverted in that her SenseiChan personality is just an act to hide her true identity as the Scorpion Zodiarts]]
** If there's a SpearCounterpart to this trope, [[spoiler: [[IdiotHero Gentaro Kisaragi]] fulfills it in his crossover movie with ''[[Series/KamenRiderWizard Wizard]]'', although he's a ''mote'' less {{Keet}} than he was as a student at Amanogawa.]] Similarly, Ohsugi-sensei is halfway between this and a SadistTeacher: nobody takes him seriously, he's chronically hard-up for dates, and eventually admits that he has no friends. Once, he even tries to force Gentaro to hang out with him because he's lonely.

* Taiga Fujimura from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' plays with this trope; while she's rather immature when off-duty at home, she's generally responsible in her duties as a teacher.
** She plays it dead straight in the alternate universe spinoff ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'' though where she's teaching Illya in primary school rather than Shirou in High School.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': When she's not portrayed as an ApatheticTeacher, Mrs. Krabappel comes across like this, particularly when outside of the classroom (though occasionally in it).

* Western TV equivalents of this trope would include Miss Blondel, the very popular and sympathetic young French teacher who the schoolboy DannyBaker is strongly drawn to in ''Series/CradleToGrave''.
*There is also the character of Miss Titley in ''Series/TheGrimleys'', who has all the described qualities of ''sensei-chan'' about her and who takes a strong (platonic) pastoral concern in young Grimley.
