* Doctor Morgenes of TadWilliams' ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'' plays this role for Simon, taking the wayward kitchen boy under his tutelage and giving him some rudimentary schooling. He's really a member of the League of the Scroll, a group of scholars dedicated to preventing the [[SealedEvilInACan return]] of the [[BigBad Storm King]], and Simon isn't [[MosesInTheBullrushes quite what he seems either]]. Then, Morgenes dies in a HeroicSacrifice to allow Simon to escape from EvilSorcerer Pryrates. True to the trope, he continues to appear to Simon in [[DreamingOfThingsToCome dreams]], attempting to warn him of the PropheticFallacy that is about to befall the heroes.

* [[spoiler:Thunder Ryu]] in ''NoMoreHeroes'' plays this role to a tee; given all the game's other [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to ''Franchise/StarWars'', this is most likely completely deliberate.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Ebenezar McCoy was this to Harry when he was still learning how to use magic. While his previous guardian, Justin DuMorne, taught him how to use magic through direct methods (such as throwing baseballs at him to teach him how to make a physical barrier), Ebenezar taught him that the power of magic comes from passion and emotions, and how important it is to follow the Laws of Magic. [[spoiler:It comes to a shock to Harry when he learns that his teacher, who taught him the importance of the Laws of Magic, was the Blackstaff, or the one person on the planet who can legally break them if he feels he needs to.]]
