* ''Love With the Proper Stranger'' has a non-doctor abortionist working in a backroom in conditions so horrifying that the protagonists flee in terror without submitting to the procedure, despite having already paid a considerable sum of money up front.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BeneathASteelSky'' has Dr. Burke, a cosmetic surgeon who runs this trope into the ground. He operates on patients who are not anesthetized for no discernable reason, he huffs the gas himself, and turned his dead wife into a holographic receptionist. It doesn't help that you have to undergo surgery from him for a couple of alterations. (namely, your Schreibmann port to jack into LINC-Space, and to get someone else's fingerprints grafted to your hands to [[BorrowedBiometricBypass bypass a biometric lock]])

* An episode of [=McCallum=] had a drug supply clerk treating illegal refugees, believing that doctors just went down a list of symptoms and prescribed the appropriate drug. As a result people start turning up on [=McCallum=]'s autopsy table. At one point the police arrest a doctor, but [=McCallum=] argues against him being a suspect as he's too competent.

* ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'' had an interesting case. When the protagonist is ordered to lead a robbery of a ship in port they find all the guards on the ship dead and the cargo already stolen. Rather than go back empty handed the main character hauls the bodies to a back alley doctor who buys them off him. It fits into the trope since considering the time, the doctor was likely a surgeon who wanted to better study a human body (something illegal due to religious mandate)

** Taiga Hanaya/Kamen Rider Snipe from ''Series/KamenRiderExAid''. He's also an expy to ''Manga/BlackJack'', being an unlicensed doctor with white [[SkunkStripe white streaks]] on his hair. Being that he was formerly a licensed radiologist, he seems to be pretty good at it, especially since he seems to be quite wealthy.

** Doctor Hartman is pretty much this, only somehow with a license, real or otherwise. He doesnt know what the human anatomy is called, and uses the books in his office as cheat-sheets. He also prescribed viagra as anti-depressants.

* In ''Ben10UltimateAlien,'' it was not played even a little bit for comedy in the episode "Catch a Falling Star." A past villain wants [[MagicPlasticSurgery a new face]]. He goes to a ''veterinarian'' who owes him a favor. The amount of blood found by the heroes later was apparently impressive. However, it's hard to be sure if they mean leftovers from the surgery or if it's from [[HeKnowsTooMuch what Nesmith did to the only guy who knew what he now looked like]]. This episode is generally considered the height of the franchise's use of CerebusSyndrome.
