* The X-Men have a few of these:
** Emma Frost's {{backstory}} miniseries has a teenage Emma developing a crush on her art teacher -- and when her mind-reading powers set in, she learns that he's attracted to her as well. Emma's MagnificentBastard of a father gets the teacher fired (and forbids him from ever seeing Emma again). They later meet again when Emma ends up attending a college where he is teaching. There the teacher, Emma, her telepathic roommate, and Emma's new best friend get involved in a love rectangle where the roommate telepathically manipulates the best friend into accusing the teacher of sexual advances in order to remove the two people standing between her and Emma. In response to this revelation, Emma mind wipes her roommate, then uses her own psychic power to hijack her best friend's mind and make everyone think she's a lying, crazy stalker. Afterwords, Emma confesses to the teacher what she did in order to protect him, in the name of being honest with the man she loves in hopes that he would not hold it against her in the event he wanted to begin a relationship with her at last. Unfortunately, finding out that Emma was a mutant AND had used her psychic powers to get her best friend labelled insane causes him to reject Emma, turning her into the cold-blooded villain she would become.

* Although never outright stated, the very fact that the [[BewareTheNiceOnes supposedly sweet]], [[TheIngenue seemingly wholesome]] Selena Coombs of ''Series/AmericanGothic'' is in fact a FemmeFatale, HotLibrarian, and EvilTeacher all rolled into one makes speculation about this trope inevitable.\\

* Because the protagonist of ''VisualNovel/{{Canvas 2}}'' is a teacher, you're of course going to have several of these. Five, in fact. There are more students with a crush on Hiroki, but they're not heroines.
* In ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', Lilly had feelings for her English tutor in the past, and turned down her many [[LoveConfession love confessions]] to save herself for him, but knew that she could never have him, and never confessed. Hisao thinks of such relationships as "taboos born of such things as purity and youth," and is glad Lilly never acted on it.

** The ghosts in "I Only Have Eyes For You" were a female teacher and one of her male students in 1955. The teacher realises the relationship is wrong and tries to break it off, only to be killed by her distraught lover.



** When Wesley first appears in the third season, he and Cordelia circle each other. In fact, when they first met he assumed she was a teacher (possible LampshadeHanging on the DawsonCasting), but heavy awkwardness ensues when he realized she was a student, and he promptly drops the subject. Though it is brought up a few times with him ogling her, and the episode where Buffy read minds. She was hinted at being seventeen as Faith teases him, saying "Jailbait". She evidently had a birthday before the prom though, when Giles informs Wesley she's 18. Wesley has a first dance with her, and they share a hilariously awkward kiss that obliterates half a season of romantic tension, and never brought it up again. Even three years later in the alternate universe of the ''Angel'' episode "Birthday," Wesley and Cordy still remember what a flop their "relationship" was and quickly change the subject when Gunn mentions it.
