* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' only ever shows a single teacher, who [[MrExposition endlessly drones through the same lecture]], episode after episode, about Second Impact.
** And, based on episode 3, horribly sucks at math. [[EEqualsMCHammer Pause at the point they focus on the chalkboard...]] Seriously, he cannot handle basic calculus.

* ''Anime/LuckyStar'' only has Nanako Kuroi as the homeroom/history teacher of the main cast (except for Kagami) and the biology teacher (mostly in the manga). Other teachers do appear at times, though.
** The manga however, has the school nurse (we have an IllGirl in the cast, after all).

* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' - the teachers aren't major characters in any of the game's (though one's a Social Link in ''3'' and ''5''), but there's a different teacher for every class.

** In MaiHime various unnamed teachers make brief appearances, but only Midori and Ishigami are significant characters.

* Averted in ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', by virtue of being set almost entirely at the school the student characters had a large cast of teachers with specific subjects. Some teachers rotated in and out of the recurring cast, others were one-off guest stars for classes the characters were not shown attending before. In the third season the SadisticTeacher science teacher Mr. Sweeney announces he went on to teach 8th grade science, to [[BigNo their horror]].

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' plays this trope straight: the only adults in the school are the teacher Chie-sensei and the director. Justified, though, since the school is really small and there is only one room for all grades

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Series/WaterlooRoad'', where, as the top billing cast is the staff of the eponymous comprehensive, we get over half a dozen teachers featured at any one time. This only represents a small number of the total staff, and we do in fact see plenty of unnamed extras in the background, particularly during morning briefings. Nevertheless, an overwhelmingly disproportionate number of the teachers in focus teach English, and the imbalance is particularly noticeable when you realise that only two full-time named teachers have ever taught maths, and around the same number have covered the entirety of humanities.

Even with a large student body, especially one [[ImprobablyFemaleCast with cute schoolgirls]], the faculty needed to maintain a large campus may rarely appear. Actual teachers may be limited to the homeroom, English, [[SchoolNurse nurse]] and gym teacher, sometimes [[EconomyCast both at once]].

The rest of the time, education will occur with no visible staff -- even when the action takes place in and during a class, a teacher is almost never shown. Like ParentalAbandonment, this prevents adults who would otherwise have an interest in (or at least an influence on) the main characters from interfering with the plot. It's also a way to [[EconomyCast avoid creating extraneous characters]] the show isn't going to focus on anyway.

This may be [[HandWave handwaved]] by the presence of an AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil running things, or the pragmatic view that even when screentime is spent on characters actually being in class, it's not the ''lessons'' that are important to the plot. It's also a way to avoid the expense of creating and animating an entire classroom filled with people.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' only had Mr. Brown, Ms. Simian, Rocky, and Mr. Small as the entire visible school staff. Lampshaded in one episode where all of them went missing or were injured in some way, and it was pointed out that there are no teachers left in the entire Jr. High. Season three added a coach who goes by Coach, but that's it so far.
