Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A more experienced advisor or confidante to a young, inexperienced character, particularly to The Hero.
This character is better skilled, faster and more experienced than their student and they're passing those traits on to the student. They may have grown too old for the task or have their own job to do. Their role is to introduce a new skill or sharpen the current skills of their student, often hoping to pass the torch because they know their career is coming to an end. This character may die, so that their student can learn to stand on their own two feet. Expect them to have the same elderly, but powerful look associated with the Grandpa God.
Compare Big Good where they tend to keep a distance on the hero's quest and run things from the throne.
Named after Mentor, Telemachus' elderly advisor in The Odyssey, who was actually Athena in disguise. For more information concerning "The Mentor" and other narrative archetypes, see Vladmir Propp's theory of narrative.

Dragon Age:
Duncan acts as Alistair's Mentor; he's been his Senior in the Grey Wardens and a surrogate father figure for months by the time you meet him in your Origin Story. Duncan's involvement with the player character is too limited for him to count as his/her Mentor too, though he does save your ass in each of the Origin Stories. He has an Obi-Wan Moment in the disastrous Battle of Ostagar; however, they Never Found the Body.
Wynne can be this to the Warden if the player wishes. Verges on a parent/child relationship with a mage protagonist.
In Dragon Age II, despite having been deceased for several years prior the start of the game, Malcolm Hawke is frequently referred to as being this to a Mage!Hawke and Bethany. Despite giving up his magic when he married Leandra, when he discovered that his child(ren) had inherited his gifts, he immediately set about teaching them to hone their abilities and how to blend in, so they could keep their magic a secret from the Templars, in addition to teaching them how to use their magic responsibly.
Keeper Marethari serves as this to Merrill, having trained her to eventually succeed her in leading their Dalish Clan. Even though Merrill enters a self-imposed exile, Marethari still offers her advice to her and relies on Hawke to curb her growing obsession with the Eluvian.
In Dragon Age: Inquisition, the Inquisitor him/herself can serve as this to the young farmer called Sutherland. If his quest chain (on the war table) is completed correctly, the player guides him from being a raw recruit to the leader of his own small adventuring company. He's extremely grateful for the Inquisitor's belief in him.

K has Kuroh Yatogami's late master, Ichigen Miwa, the Colorless King, a wise old seer who found him dying in the woods as a child, made Kuroh his Clansman, and took him in. He taught Kuroh swordsmanship, and plenty of other skills, like cooking, and piloting a helicopter — possibly because he foresaw that Kuroh would need them. He also foresaw Kuroh's relationship with the main character (mentioned in the novels), and possibly sent him on his mission so that they would find each other. There's also Kuroh's senior pupil, Yukari Mishakuji, the one who went bad. Both of them are fond of shoehorning Miwa's haiku poetry into every possible situation. (Creepy.)

Bleach: Everything Uryuu Ishida knows and believes about Quincies comes from what his grandfather taught him, including the attitude that it's wrong to blame the Shinigami for the Quincy massacre 200 years before. His grandfather died when Ishida was a young child, right in front of Ishida's eyes. Throughout the story, Souken's teachings continue to guide Ishida via the power of flashback.

Clef of Magic Knight Rayearth gives the girls magic power and instructs them on its use, but leaves them to complete their journey on their own except when he is speaking to them remotely through Mokona. The anime has him Taken for Granite in the first episode and eventually become unable to communicate. He gets better in the second half.

Lyrical Nanoha:
Yuuno serves as The Mentor to Nanoha in the first two seasons, but it's more prominent in the first season. At the beginning of the series, he needs time to recover to regenerate his mana, thus he's dependent on Nanoha to gather the 21 Jewel Seeds as soon as possible before things escalate. She already surpasses his expectations and in power from the start, thus she's more suited to battle in combat against her adversary Fate than Yuuno is.
Rynith was specifically created by Precia to be this for Fate, complete with her contract expiring together with her life once she's finished training Fate. When a pseudo-revived version of hers appeared in The Gears of Destiny, she showed just how much more skilled she was compared to Fate, beating everyone she met from Nanoha, to Signum, to Reinforce (albeit a weakened one) despite not taking the fights too seriously, and eventually being the only one capable of defeating a similarly pseudo-revived version of Precia.
Speaking of which, the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's Portable games showed that, had she skipped the Heroic Sacrifice in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's, Reinforce would have served as this for Hayate, spending the precious few years she had teaching Hayate how to effectively use her newly-received powers before she finally dies.
Hayate was mentored by Genya Nakajima when she served under him in the 108th Battalion during the four year Time Skip between the airport fire and the formation of Riot Force 6. Because of this, she continues to treat him as a superior officer despite outranking him in the present.
Nanoha herself takes this role of the mentor towards the Forward Team, with Vita as her assistant trainer. Depending on your point of view, Nanoha may or maybe not The Protagonist in StrikerS, but she still takes action along side her students in battle.
Nove is this to Team Nakajima (later Nakajima Gym) and also grows as a trainer during the series. Due to being a Cyborg, she cannot pass through the tournament regulations, but she still can teach some little girls how to kick ass anyway (or find other people helping to train them).

Dragon Ball:
Master Roshi was originally this for both Goku and Krillin in Dragon Ball.
When Goku dies and decides to do some training in the afterlife before he comes back to life in Dragon Ball Z, he goes to King Kai, who becomes his new mentor from there.
Piccolo plays this somewhat in the first arc in Z where he decides to train Gohan, not only to get him ready for the Saiyans who were coming, but also because he sensed his death is near and wants someone to pass on his knowledge to. He's brought Back from the Dead.
Goku and Vegeta both get training from Whis in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ and Dragon Ball Super, who trained God of Destruction Beerus in martial arts. He agrees to teach Goku and Vegeta how to sense and use godly ki.

The real-life poet Virgil guides The Divine Comedy's protagonist through Hell and Purgatory with his philosophical wisdom. As a Roman poet, Virgil allegorically stands for wisdom obtainable by human reason, and he fittingly leaves the poem once Dante has to ascend to Heaven and face the world of theology.

Chubbs from Happy Gilmore is a comedic but very straight version of this trope. He helps Happy get his start in golf, teaches him the basic techniques, tries to teach Happy maturity, dies, then puts in a kinda-sorta appearance as a Spirit Advisor. Also, the fact that he's not The Hero is better justified than in many stories: he may know the game and techniques much better than Happy, but in golf being one-handed is a major handicap.

In The Dresden Files, 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. 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.

Dreamscape Voyager Trilogy
Captain Elyia Asier serving this role as Cassidy. She frequently drops advice and life lessons, knowing that Cassidy wants to be the captain of her own crew, someday. At the end of the first book, she reveals to Cassidy posthumously that she knew she was going to be killed, and was readying Cassidy to take up the position.
Cassidy, in turn, is a mentor to Miria, who is new to life as a sailor.
Captain Saala Balthine was this to Zayne until some time before the start of the story.

Knights of the Old Republic:
While Jolee Bindo seems to fit in terms of character, in terms of the role in the plot Bastilla actually serves this role. She is the one who shows the Player Character that they are a Jedi and serves as his/her mentor throughout the game, despite probably being younger. This is justified by both her raw power in the Force as well as the fact that she was bonded in the Force with the protagonist. Though she fails to stay in charge, it is for a reason as she was never meant to be in charge. Her purpose was not to act as a mentor but to utilize the protagonist's visions to find the mysterious Star Forge, as he turns out to be the amnesiac former Sith Lord Darth Revan.
Jolee Bindo does however serve as something of the Yoda role as a wise and seasoned former Jedi (and a hermit, to boot) who left the order because he found its refusal to acknowledge love's influence in a Jedi's life. It's never made clear just how much of Jolee's Grumpy Old Man routine is really an act, but he is shown to be the wisest follower you meet. He even figures out, on his own, that the protagonist is actually Darth Revan. He just doesn't think it's his right to say it.

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Anakin becomes this for young initiate Ahsoka Tano, who becomes his Padawan. Unfortunately, this ends only slightly better than Anakin's own apprenticeship to Obi-Wan, with Ahsoka leaving the Jedi Order after feeling betrayed by the Council's lack of trust, only to later have to cross blades with her former teacher after his fall to the Dark Side.

Surprisingly, Wolverine is this to several generations of X-Men, being a father-figure to a number of the teenaged female members. He and Storm are both mentors to Kitty Pryde, and like Wolverine, Storm is a parental figure to her as well, in this case being a mother figure.
Likewise, Charles Xavier is this to the X-Men as a whole. Particularly Cyclops, who along with the other adult members of the X-Men, goes on to be a mentor in his own right to many young mutants attending the school.

Wolf Hall portrays the relationship between Cardinal Wolsey and Thomas Cromwell as that of mentor and protege. The two share an affinity as extremely intelligent but lowborn men having to deal with the game-playing and tantrums of Upper Class Twits and Social Climbers in Henry VIII's court. Even years after Wolsey's death, Cromwell often remembers tidbits of his advice and frequently asks himself what Wolsey would do in a given situation, and comes to regard him as having been a Parental Substitute. Cromwell also serves in this role himself for his ward Rafe Sadler and the small army of apprentices, orphans, and urchins he looks after at his family home, wanting to give other smart but resourceless boys the same good fortune he had.

Bakuman。: Akira Hattori isn't a mangaka, but as an editor he serves as an important mentor to Muto Ashirogi, teaching them various important things about the manga industry and advising them how to create a good manga. Generelly, all editors should be this, but Hattori is the only one shown to effectively mentor his mangaka he's supervising. Miura attempts that, but his results are lackluster in the end.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Tony Stark demonstrates some elements of this in Captain America: Civil War when he recruits Peter Parker (AKA Spider-Man) and helps him upgrade his suit. However, by the end of the movie Tony has realized that he dragged Peter into a fight that had nothing to do with him, and resolves to keep him from getting involved further. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tony has continued this stance, giving Peter as much advice as he can, while also trying to keep him from getting in over his head.

Carter Hall/Hawkman plays this role in Smallville. As one of the last surviving members of the previous generation of superheroes, he becomes a mentor to the current generation of superheroes, most notably Clark Kent. In the show's tenth season, Carter informs Clark that he has fought against and defeated that season's Big Bad Darkseid on at least two previous occasions, but is then killed in battle by another villain who had unknowingly become a minion of Darkseid later in that very same episode.

From Avatar: The Last Airbender:
The Airbending monk, Gyatso, is a kind mentor to Aang, then eventually dies. When Aang discovers his death 100 years later, it sends him into Heroic BSoD mode and awakens the Avatar State.
Uncle Iroh is a mentor to Prince Zuko and not only helps to protect him, but also helps him in his destiny to side with Aang to stop the Fire Nation's conquests. Interestingly, he is also the Obi-Wan to Zuko's Anakin Skywalker.
In the Sequel Series, The Legend of Korra, the titular protagonist only has to learn one element at the beginning of the series so her mentors don’t play too big of a role. Katara was her Waterbending teacher and a grandmother figure to her and gives her her blessing to go off to Republic City in the first episode. Her and Aang’s son Tenzin is her Airbending teacher with whom she lives for most of the series. He’s an uncle figure to her and plays this trope more closely than his mother.

The Místico gimmick originated around Fray Tormenta mentoring one of his orphans who desired to become a luchador. CMLL had planned for there to be multiple mentored luchadors, starting with El Sagrado, but when he proved to be unconvincing, the angle was abandoned, with Místico being the only reminder of it's existence due to his breakout status.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality: The archetype is continually referred to as "the mysterious old wizard." Harry has two mentors, Quirrel and Dumbledore, while Hermione experiences some frustrations finding someone willing to mentor her. "Dumbledore refused to be my mysterious old wizard, do you know where I can write to request another one?" In the end, they decide that since Hermione is actually the hero of the story, that means Harry is her mysterious old wizard. It helps that it turns out he's technically sixty.

Lost:
Locke turns out in the long haul to be this to Jack. They turn into bitter enemies for the first 4 seasons of the show with Locke trying to turn Jack from a man of science into a man of faith and leading different factions of the survivors. Once Jack leaves the Island, he eventually reluctantly realizes Locke was right, to such an extent that when he learns of Locke's death he tries to kill himself. He then resolves to return to the Island and fulfill John Locke's mission.
Played straight with Locke being Boone's mentor, although this does get him killed.

Moirane Damodred Sedai mentors all the Two Rivers youths, Rand in particular, and "dies" protecting him from Lanfear as a result. Predictably, she comes back in a weaker form in Towers of Midnight.
Thom Merrilin to Mat Cauthon and Rand Al'Thor. He helps them escape from Trollocs and is the reason they survive "in the real world." He then "sacrifices" himself by battling a Fade, giving them time to escape. He even gives Rand some knowledge about Aes Sedai and channelers later on and gives Mat a great deal of mentoring from the time of the Band onward.
Elyas Machera to Perrin Aybara. He even has the "hermit" characteristic, seeing as how he freaking lives and speaks with wolves. He mentors Aybara in coming to terms with being a Wolfbrother and in using his abilities.

My Hero Academia interestingly has multiple characters like this on both the hero and villain sides.
Izuku Midoriya's primary mentor is All Might, the world's greatest hero, who passes on the Quirk called One For All to Midoriya after deciding that he's a worthy successor. He also has a secondary mentor in Gran Torino, a contemporary of All Might's predecessor who also trained All Might himself. Both fulfill different needs, as while Midoriya derives his power and ideals from All Might, Gran Torino is better at teaching him how to use One For All without destroying himself.
On the villain side, Tomura Shigaraki is mentored by All Might's arch-enemy, All For One. All For One knows full-well that he fulfills this trope, having taken in and raised Shigaraki from a young age after killing his grandmother and uses the twisted bond between them to encourage Shigaraki to be a better villain. Even after his arrest, he chides All Might for not embodying the trope as well as he has, because while All Might won and continues to be there for Midoriya, Shigaraki's loss of a beloved mentor is going to motivate him to grow stronger and more independent.

One Piece makes occasional use of these:
About half of the Strawhats' Parental Substitutes qualify in some way, particularly Koshiro (Zoro's dojo master), Zeff (who taught Sanji how to cook), and Tom (who took Franky on as one of his shipbuilding apprentices).
During the Time Skip, in which all of the Straw Hats separately train to get stronger and prepare for the New World, many—but not all—of them gain a mentor to help them do so. The two most prominent examples are:
Silvers Rayleigh, former First Mate to Pirate King Gold Roger himself, mentors Luffy, who wants to succeed Roger as the next Pirate King.
Dracule Mihawk, the world's greatest swordsman, trains Zoro, who wants to eventually defeat Mihawk himself to claim the title of the strongest swordsman in the world.

Magic: The Gathering: This is a common trope; the focus on magic means that younger mages are often mentored by older ones, though the mechanics vary from plane to plane.
Ajani Goldmane, the leonin planeswalker, was one to Elspeth Tirel, especially during the Greek-inspired Theros arc. His Theros-block card even calls him Mentor of Heroes. As a result, Elspeth's death at the end of that storyline has haunted him ever since; after all, it's supposed to be the other way around.
Sorin Markov was one to Nahiri. In the days when being a planeswalker meant becoming a Physical God, this was pretty common. Nahiri even says he was like a father to her. They're relationship ended pretty badly, which was also common for Oldwalkers.
Jace learned to harness his Mind Magic from a sphinx named Alhammeret, though he turned out to be an Evil Mentor who was using Jace to prolong a war.
Subverted with Chandra; her fellow pyromancer, Mother Luti, tried to be one of these for her, but Chandra's fierce independence meant she didn't often listen to the older woman. That changes when she finds out that Luti is actually the legendary Jaya Ballard.

Game of Thrones:
Jon Snow has a range of mentors. His father, Eddard Stark, is Jon's first mentor, guiding and training Jon alongside Robb, Jon's brother and Ned's eldest son. Lord Commander Jeor Mormont is a mentor for Jon, grooming him to become the next Lord Commander. Qhorin Halfhand becomes another mentor for Jon while they are ranging beyond the Wall.
Likewise, Jon's younger sister Arya Stark has a range of mentors. Syrio Forel in Season 1 is a good mentor to Arya. He is a master sword fighter and instructor hired by her father Eddard Stark to train her. Her father was also a good mentor. Later, she has the morally ambiguous Jaqen H'ghar to guide her. Her moral compass notably alters under his tutelage; she is young and still pure hearted under her father and Syrio, but smarter and more sneaky when she interacts with Jaqen. When she becomes The Hound's hostage and they form a quasi-friendship, she gets progressively darker and more violent, verging on Straw Nihilist by mid-Season 4, and her body-count noticeably increases as well.
Maester Luwin, who educated the Stark children — Robb, Jon, Sansa, Arya, Bran and Rickon — is presented as Bran's primary mentor in the earlier seasons of the show. Bran is later guided by Jojen Reed in his greenseeing abilities and then mentored by the Three-Eyed Raven.
Maester Aemon is Samwell Tarly's primary mentor.
Tyrion serves as this to Jon briefly in his period of adjustment with the Night's Watch, he's also one to Podrick Payne. Tyrion also tries to educate his nephew, but Joffrey is a lost cause.
Tywin tries to be this to his grandson Tommen when the latter becomes king in season 4, but a combination of Tommen's own weak will, the Tyrell influence, and the rather critical snag of Tywin dying at the end of said season, severely limit the effectiveness of his attempt.

In A Game of Thrones Ned Stark appears to be the main protagonist, and five of the other POV characters are his children and wife. After his death reveals that he was a Decoy Protagonist, you can see through his influence on his family and the North in general that he was really The Mentor all along.

Child of the Storm has Doctor Strange, formerly teacher of Wanda Maximoff, end up as one to Harry - indeed, it could be argued he's this to the entire heroic side of the cast (though no one's entirely sure where the mentoring begins and the manipulating ends). Thanks to his manipulative nature, and the fact that he's lining up Harry to take on Thanos, among other things, mean that Harry is not totally pleased at this, but also acknowledges that Strange is (when he actually bothers) a very good teacher.

Since the fall of Generation Next, Alex Shelley has sought to guide many promising wrestlers to greater heights, in New Japan, Ring of Honor and others, while not repeating his mistakes, most notable case being being in 2016 with KUSHIDA, ACH, Jay White and Lio Rush when he manipulated a three on three Tag Team Tournament to give the four of them a technical numerical advantage in hopes it would off set the inevitable cheating The Cabinet, The Kingdom and Bullet Club would engage in while himself and Sabin went after The Young Bucks and The Addiction(though Kingdom and the club prevailed).

Hornblower has two important mentor figures in the miniseries adaptation Horatio Hornblower:
Captain Pellew takes a special interest in Hornblower because he sees a promising officer in him. It's with the interesting twist that he sometimes pretends to be furious with Horatio just to mess with him. It takes Horatio some time to figure out when Pellew is joking.
Matthews is Da Man among lower deck characters. He can offer his insight even to officers who respect him and listen to him because Matthews is experienced, reasonable, respectful and concerned for the good of the ship.

The old priest in Nation. Defied by the fact that the young hero, Mau, doesn't want to hear a damn thing he has to say — in the wake of the tsunami that devastates their area of the Great Pelagic Ocean, the old priest is clinging to his faith, while Mau violently rejects it... despite being continually harassed by the spirits of his ancestors and Locaha, the god of death. Played straight, though, in that he helps Mau become the leader the refugees desperately need.

In Ensemble Stars!, the third years are theoretically meant to be this towards the first and second years, especially within units. Some are good at it (Nazuna is a genuinely supportive and helpful Big Brother Mentor type), some not so much (Chiaki really wants to be a mentor but is a bit too odd and naive to be entirely successful), some seem actively detrimental (Izumi's 'mentoring' just kind of looks like bullying), and some are downright inscrutable (Kanata barely has any connection to the real world at all, let alone the idol business). Some also mentor in other areas - Wataru sincerely tries to help make Hokuto and Tomoya into good actors, even if his methods are very eccentric, and early on Tomoya in particular is very reluctant to learn from him.

In Warrior Cats, although she isn't his mentor in the sense the series usually uses the word (training the character to be a warrior or medicine cat), Yellowfang serves this role to Fireheart; she's the elderly, dear friend he always goes to for advice.

Despite giving up his magic when he married Leandra, when he discovered that his child(ren) had inherited his gifts, he immediately set about teaching them to hone their abilities and how to blend in, so they could keep their magic a secret from the Templars, in addition to teaching them how to use their magic responsibly.

At first Kong just ignored him, but after seeing how docile Junior was around the islanders and could keep up with him he was won over. Over time Junior would watch and imitate Kong's battles against skullcrawlers and other native kaiju, Kong's training by emulation making Junior a much stronger close quarters fighter than Godzilla Senior.
