* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', one SpaceMarines special character is Ultramarines scout sergeant Tellion, who stayed a sergeant to teach new recruits, and has even been loaned out to the Ultramarines' successor chapters to further distribute his skills. This seems to be a common occurrence among scout sergeants, see below.

** Tau Fire Caste warriors can either keep serving or go up the ranks until they're removed from active service to become this. If that sounds limiting, bear in mind the Fire Caste's sole purpose is to fight for Tau, and Tau parents are genetically screened to ensure the best offspring comes out.

He makes a stunning impression on the youths with his rough demeanor, [[CruelAndUnusualPunishment vindictive punishment of evil deeds]], epic TrainingFromHell and demonstrations of [[WarIsHell what wizards' ways of causing harm are like]].

* At the conclusion of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', O'Brien heads back to Earth to become one of these at the Academy. He'd been doing a fair bit of the VeteranInstructor schtick as part of his regular duties during the last two seasons anyway.

** The GaidenGame ''{{Necromunda}}'' allows you to play as the Adeptus Arbites, an officially-backed riot squad rather than the usual street gangs. Given their access to better equipment, characters who reach a certain level are removed and considered to have become this for game balance reasons.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed'', the Earth Alliance tried to do this to [[AcePilot Mu La Flaga]] at Alaska by reassigning him as a training instructor in California. He was about to get on the boat leaving Alaska until he remembered he'd forgotten something and ran back to the base to get it [[labelnote:*]]He actually wanted to take the chance to say one last goodbye to Captain Ramius[[/labelnote]]. The result is that he's still on-base when ZAFT attacks and the boat leaves without him, so he stays with the ''Archangel''.

* For the first book of the ''Literature/XWingSeries'', Tycho Celchu serves this role in Rogue Squadron, helping train the next generation of pilots while serving as Wedge Antille's executive officer. He ''would'' be flying combat missions, there's just the matter of him being a suspected ManchurianAgent that has New Republic Intelligence adamantly against the idea.
