* Dr. Nefarious from ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank''.

to:

* Dr. Nefarious from ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank''.''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''. Gleefully [[EvilIsHammy hammy and loud]], Dr. Nefarious manages to out-ham everyone in a WorldOfHam. It's actually quite impressive to watch. A former flesh-and-blood mad scientist, he was turned into a robot thank to FakeUltimateHero Captain Qwark (or, in the 2016 reboot, Ratchet and Clank themselves), and now wants to exterminate all organic life in the universe. In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'', he gets a new plan to create a VillainWorld using the Great Clock, undoing every time the heroes had won.

* At least three ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' villains have been scientists researching, experimenting on and trying to create demons -- Arius in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 2'', Agnus in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4'' and Chen from the second novel. It's debatable as to how "scientific" this line of work is, though, so we could call them Mad Pseudoscientists or something.
* K.Rool from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' takes a persona based on this trope in ''Dixie's Double Trouble''.

* Kala Kapur of ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' is described as 'between what science can do and what science should do'. WordOfGod is that she isn't evil outright, but she feels she doesn't have the luxury of inaction because she has the capability to solve the problem despite the cost.

* Dr. Elliot Sinclair, BigBad of ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject'', and inventor of the Pegasus time machine, which jumpstarted the foundation of the Temporal Security Agency.

to:

* Dr. Elliot Sinclair, BigBad of ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject'', and inventor of the Pegasus time machine, which jumpstarted the foundation of the Temporal Security Agency. The third game reveals he has some very understandable reasons behind his actions, however. [[spoiler: Turns out that despite the impression he gave in the first game he wasn't quite as much of a paranoid general xenophobe as it seemed -- he was mainly suspicious of the particular alien species that made first contact, because he'd seen those ships before, when they destroyed the city he came from]]. He was still wrong about them, and his plan still went horribly right, but he certainly looks both more sympathetic and more sane after those revelations.

* In ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice'', the Mad Hatter has become one, emphasis on the "mad" part. In addition to creating numerous ClockworkCreatures, he's converted the Jabberwok and himself into ClockPunk automations, and has tried to do the same to the March Hare and Doormouse, unsuccessfully; the two have become delirious and babbling from the constant experiments they've been subjected too.
