Unlike a SadistTeacher, the Stern Teacher is always "tough but fair": a demanding but ultimately ReasonableAuthorityFigure. The students might not be too fond of [=his/her=] personally, but they always respect [=him/her=] in the end (which ''does'' make it TruthInTelevision).

* Nozomu Itoshiki of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. Once you get past the fact that he's so depressed and suicidal. He can act harsh sometimes but it's never because he bears any malice towards his class, he just wants them to understand the bleakness of the real world. Also, per the trope, he's loved (sometimes a bit ''[[HotForTeacher too]]'' much] by all of his students (except Kaere... and that's only halfway, since Kaere's SplitPersonality, Kaede, is in love with him too).

* Several teachers at Whateley Academy in the WhateleyUniverse. Mr. Ramirez, who teaches intro Spanish; Dr. Yablonsky, who teaches the lab for Powers Theory and has been likened to a forcibly-retired Franchise/{{Batman}} as a teacher; ... All these people were probably really tough superheroes in their prime.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Ensi Hotakainen's brief appearance in a flash-back has her forbidding a young Lalli that she's taking with her for training for the first time from touching her rifle, and threatening to leave him back if he does anything without her explicit permission. Since she's teaching him magic and scouting for fast-moving monsters, the strong discipline is likely to be the best chance she has to keep Lalli ''alive'' during his training.

* Mr. Ratburn from ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' was one of these, though the stories about him before we meet him make him out to be a SadistTeacher. Several episodes of the show, most notably the one where his sister, a MisplacedKindergartenTeacher, substitutes for him, show how having a Stern Teacher can (sometimes) be a good thing.

* Master Pakku in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is this to all of his students. So are Toph and Zuko to Aang. The episode "[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderBitterWork Bitter Work]]" best illustrates Toph's... ''unique''... style.

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Mathew is a very stern tutor to Safi, to the point that he's the only person in the world (and that's including actual Empresses) around whom she doesn't act like TheGadfly. He's also her bodyguard and her uncle's [[TheSpymaster spymaster]].
