** At some point, Urahara told [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Orihime]] to put on a dress he had made her and said it'd cheer up Ichigo. Turns out the dress is ''incredibly'' {{stripperiffic}}, that Orihime can't cover herself up due to its cut, and that ''[[CovertPervert Ichigo had immediately noticed her and was desperately trying to pretend that he hadn't]]''. As Yoruichi scolded Ichigo for hiding that he ''was'' DistractedByTheSexy and Orihime desperately tried to restrain her embarrassment, Urahara quietly said to himself something by the lines of "it was WorthIt."

* Jiraiya from ''{{Naruto}}'' adopts the "thrown in at the deep end" method of training. Literally. Unsatisfied with the hero's progress at accessing his power, he throws him off a ''waterfall''.

* [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Cross Marian]] of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' really does love Allen. Hoshino even says Cross cares for him like his own child. But, Cross roughs him up alot, because he likes Allen's dark side, as Hoshino stated. And that's probably because that side is closer to real Allen, as opposed to the repressed boy be became after Mana's death. Allen has a few traumatic memories from his years with Cross. Mainly the debts. But it's played for laughs.

* Terry Pratchett's Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Thief of Time'' includes Lu-Tze, a deliberate pastiche of Mr. Miyagi style trickster mentors. In true Zen form the humble sweeper Lu-Tze never quite lets on whether he's a profoundly enlightened wiseman with reality-defying martial arts powers or just a wiseass who gets by on audacity and luck alone. Right up until the end, when it is revealed [[spoiler:that he's the former.]]

* It is impossible to describe the [[TheFourGods Quintarian]] deity known as the Bastard from [[LoisMcMasterBujold Bujold's]] Chalion books, ''Paladin of Souls'' in particular, as anything but this.
-->'''Ista''': "What training? You never explained anything."
-->'''Bastard''': "Instructing you, sweet Ista, would be like teaching a falcon to walk up to its prey. It might with great effort be done, but one would end with a very footsore and cranky bird, and a tedious wait for dinner. With a wingspan like yours, it's ever so much easier to shake you from my wrist and see you fly."
-->'''Ista''': "Plummet."
-->'''Bastard''': "No. Not you. Granted, you tumble and complain halfway to the abyss, but eventually you do spread your wings and soar."
