* [[spoiler: [[PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Kyubey]] in [[PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion the Rebellion movie]] created something called an "Isolation Field", an energy field that effectively [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens blocked out the entire Universe,]] powerful enough to pull the [[BigGood Law]] [[CosmicEntity of]] [[AbstractApotheosis Cycles]] into itself. His plan was to see if he could interfere with the Law, because "if (he) could interfere with it, (he) could manipulate it, and if (he) could manipulate it, (he) could control it". His end goal was to "conquer" the Law of Cycles so [[MagicalGirl Magical Girls]] would [[DespairEventHorizon turn]] into [[EldritchAbomination Witches,]] creating vast amounts of energy for [[StarfishAliens his]] [[AliensAreBastards race]] to use.]]

** There's Shou Tucker, who, under the pretense of having to produce good results in order to keep his license as a State Alchemist (although he later admits it was mostly [[ForTheEvulz "just to see if I could do it"]], [[spoiler: combines his own young daughter, Nina, and her pet dog into a chimaera, condemning them to a FateWorseThanDeath from which Scar is forced to release them via MercyKill.]] He doesn't fit the traditional profile of this trope (he appears quite calm and kind for most of the time we see him), but there is no doubt that he crossed the MoralEventHorizon on that one.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Some of the villains get into this, most notably [[SmugSnake Orochimaru]] and his MadDoctor BastardUnderstudy, [[TheMole Kabuto]].
** Madara is getting into this too, what with him collecting eyes, Zetsu army, and cloning Hashirama. Though you could argue he's not really a "mad" scientist so much as an ArrogantKungFuGuy scientist.

* Another one is Grace O'Connor from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''. Though she doesn't heavily advertise that she ''is'' a scientist in the first place, in fact [[EvilutionaryBiologist she is]], and not the worst one. Given that she's also a HotScientist, and what a [[TheChessmaster scheming]], [[ForScience amoral]], and utterly {{badass}} [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]] she comes in the end, it's simply unfair to leave her out.

* 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.
