Sometimes, movie mentors royally fuck up. Some clearly spend more time dry-cleaning their robes than actually coming up with good advice for their proteges (yes, we're calling you out, Dumbledore!) Others leave our heroes to fend for themselves as a test of their mettle. But they may as well have left them in a box outside of a 7-11, for all the good they accomplished.
Some shitty mentors are about to get BUSTED!
6) Yoda to the entire Jedi Order in Star Wars
From the moment that hairy-eared bastard showed up in Empire, his batty demeanor was a slap in the face to all the Jedi who died due to his incompetent stewardship of the Order. You'd think that after living 900 years, he'd be able to tell when the fucking DARK LORD OF THE SITH is having dinner with him. And, when you have a REALLY BAD FEELING about training some snot-nosed little punk, here's a thought: Don't. Train. Him. So Yoda ends up practically senile, living in a swamp, eating space-pea soup and Melba toast, and muttering sweet nothings to Mace Windu's Force-ghost. When 900 years old you reach, living in a swamp, hot does not make you ... or something. Yoda is green, and let's face it, anybody who's green is bound to be a moron.
Redeeming Quality: Size matters not. Convenient philosophy for a dude who's packing a baby saber.
