* Dantalion the [[BossSubtitles Seeking Researcher]] from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. He is [[LargeHam outrageously excitable]] and creates his mad experiments ForScience, and not necessarily for evil means. One suspects that if he weren't contracted to the bad guys he'd be mostly harmless. He looks exactly like Father Anderson from ''Hellsing''.
* Speaking of ''{{Hellsing}}'', there is The Doktor, chief scientist of the [[StupidJetpackHitler Millennium Group]].

* The Elder in ''ChronoCrusade'' is a mild example of this trope. He's not ''completely'' insane, but his inventions tend to be quirky at best and downright dangerous at worst. Some of the things he's responsible for in the series include purposefully allowing [[HotBlooded Rosette]] to steal an experimental bullet with a demon trapped inside so he wouldn't have to test it himself, and apparently fusing a friend with demonic legion in order to make him a better fighter. Oh, and he's a DirtyOldMan to top it all off.

* Matthew Denton of ''{{Heroman}}'', no question. He's the good version-also no question, because in the 2nd episode he gives many InTheNameOfTheMoon speeches about how [[TheAtoner the alien invasion is his fault and thus he must stop it]]. Most of the stuff he comes up with could not have been conceived by a completely sane mind, ([[RuleOfCool This is Anime]]) the most notable being a weaponized guitar that can kill cockroach aliens.

* ''WeissKreuz'' is almost as fond of these as it is of {{Mad Artist}}s - see particularly Takatori Masafumi, and Tsuji Mayumi in ''Weiss Kreuz: Glühen''.

* ''[[{{Gunnm}} Battle Angel Alita]]'': Desty Nova. Mad laugh, human experiments, cloning, nanomachines, lack of morals, the whole works, and he's ''proud'' of it.

* Okabe Rintaro (or [[LargeHam HOUOIN KYOUMA!]] as he sometimes prefers to be called) of ''SteinsGate'' is a self-proclaimed example, often prone to peals of EvilLaughter, bouts of paranoia, and referring to his inner circle of friends as lab members. Yet despite all of this, he can be surprisingly grounded at times, and realizes that he and his friends' dabbling in time travel and poking about a GovernmentConspiracy could land them in very hot water.
* Rinichiro Hagire, from ''DeadmanWonderland''. He found a way to overwrite people's memories with his own, so that his conscious could continue to live through another's body, completely under his control. He also started a macabre carnaval in his search for the strongest Deadman for his next "generation." Death was expected by the loser. At the time of the [[spoiler: the Wretched Egg's birth, he was testing human immunity, searching for a way to improve it, and eventually created the Deadman]], he is now [[spoiler:trying to turn of the MGS so that Shiro can be at FULL POWER which caused a huge earthquake when she first awoke, submerging the entire city of Tokyo]].
* Doc from ''{{Texhnolyze}}'', who doubles as a HotScientist. Putting aside her prosthetic limb fetish and her tendency to have sex with her patients, she also puts wheels on a rat for no reason other than her own apparent amusement.
* Dr. Hogback from ''OnePiece'', who builds zombies for his master Gekko Moriah, and has no respect for life despite being a doctor.

** [[BigBad Dr. Jail Scaglietti]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS''. In fairness, it turns out that [[spoiler:he's an ArtificialHuman who was specifically created to be that way]]. Unlike most of the {{Gadgeteer Genius}}es here, actually refers to himself as an engineer. He also seems to be incapable of feeling anger and never falls in a VillainousBreakdown.
** [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Presea]] [[BigBad Testarossa]] from the [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha first season]], who snapped over the [[spoiler:loss of her daughter Alicia, spending centuries to find a way to revive her]].

* While Shiho Miyano of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' may not qualify as a Mad Scientist, since she was forced into doing her research, her father certainly does. The series specifically mentions that her father was considered a mad scientist even by the standards of the Black Organization. That's pretty mad.

[[spoiler: Though Agasa says that Atsushi wasn't ''that'' crazy, but actually a rather decent guy. Since he is Shiho-aka-Ai's ParentalSubstitute, lying about this would be just too risky...]]



* Dr. Akihiro Kanou from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. [[spoiler: When confronted about ''intentionally'' turning Kaneki into a HalfHumanHybrid, he makes a speech about being AboveGoodAndEvil. His experiments have left dozens of innocent people either mutated into mentally disabled freaks of nature or dead, with only ''four'' known successes]]. In response, Kaneki calls him a [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] lunatic.

* Dr. Franken von Vogler from the ''GiantRobo'' OVA was introduced as a classic ranting Mad Scientist. [[spoiler:The series subverts this trope, as successive flashbacks reveal more about his real motivations.]]
* Icchan from ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'' is often mistaken for a Mad Scientist; he seems to encourage it, making over-the-top dramatic entrances, speaking cryptically about his creations whenever he can, and wearing his lab coat all the time.

* Yoshizumi-sensei of ''ZombieLoan''. He started off as a reasonably sane college scientist, but when [[spoiler:Caramelo]] of the ARRC turned him into a zombie, he [[GoMadFromTheRevelation snapped]]. He ends up [[spoiler:merging with his "masterwork", the Phalanx, only to be killed by Sawatari.]]

* Hiroshi from ''MyDearMarie'' builds himself a RobotGirl [[ReplacementGoldfish who both looks identical and has the same name to a woman he has a crush on]]. When the two meet by chance, he tells everyone that they're [[LikeBrotherAndSister siblings]] as a cover story.
