* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' has two unmarried teachers who are on friendly enough terms that they follow the girls on vacation. This is probably an exaggeration of the closer relationship Japanese students have with their teachers. Also justifiable because Yukari and Nyamo ''do'' have a lot of free time -- Yukari is such a {{jerkass}} that nobody except Nyamo will voluntarily associate with her, and both of them are single at an age where [[ChristmasCake they'd be expected to be married]].

** There's also that Yukari and Nyamo ''do'' have a lot of free time -- Yukari is such a JerkAss that nobody except her best friend Nyamo and her students will voluntarily associate with her, leaving both her and Nyamo with absolutely no social life outside school.
*** Like the [[ChristmasCake Kuroi-sensei]] example below, Nyamo has free-time because she's single at an age when she really should be married already or getting ready to be wed (at least by [[ValuesDissonance Japanese standards]]).

* Mai Kujaku/Valentine of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' (who, as a professional duelist, ''does'' have quite a bit of free time on her hands) hung out with TrueCompanions eight to ten years younger than herself and fell in love with [[LikesOlderWomen one of them]]. Which was justified by her much younger friends ''also'' being champion duelists, who she first met in a tournament they were all competing in. Then she joined a {{cult}}. [[strike:Then she suffered a disastrous marriage to]]- wait, sorry, that was someone else.
* Brock from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has fallen into this. He originally joined Ash in order to pursue his dream of becoming a Pokémon Breeder, but since returning to the cast in Johto, has done almost nothing to further this goal and has passed up many chances to travel on his own.
** However, he left the main cast at the end of the ''Diamond and Pearl'' series and decided to become a Pokémon Doctor instead, inspired by an experience he had with taking care of sick baby Pokémon on a ship. He has also served as the "doctor" of the group for the majority of his time traveling with Ash and friends.

* ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'': Since Gordy the janitor always slacks off at work, deciding he'll "let the night guy get it," he has plenty of time to hang out with the ThreeAmigos and other students, and help with [[ASimplePlan simple plans]].

* Likewise, ''LuckyStar'' has two such adults, who are used whenever the girls take a driving trip. Kuroi-sensei even manages to invade Konata's online gaming time during the evenings. Likewise, Konata's cousin Yui is around the girls enough that Kuroi assumes Yui has to be unmarried, since we don't see her husband (on business trips) around at all. Konata wondered if that is why Kuroi-sensei became a ChristmasCake.
