** Interestingly averted with turians, who [[FantasyCounterpartCulture pseudo-Romans]] frequently have names ending with [[CanisLatinicus -us]], some of which are actual Roman names. It's averted because we almost never meet any turian doctors or scientists, and when we do, they're not named.

* [[MadScientist Avernus]], Danarius, Decimus, and Corypheus from the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series, all of whom are [[EvilSorcerer evil sorcerers]]. Silly!Hawke even lampshades this, saying that someone with a name like Corypheus is bound to go [[EvilLaugh "mwahaha"]] at some point. Minor mage [=NPC=] Tobrius is, by contrast, a good man.

* Paracelsus (1493-1541), Renaissance-era Swiss physician, alchemist, and astrologer, and the father of toxicology as a field. Already an example for his chosen name (Latin for "higher than high", or "surpassing Celsus", perhaps referring the Greek philosopher Celsus[[note]]Or more likely a Latinization of his surname Hohenheim (German, lit. "high-home"[[/note]]), but an even more triumphant example for this page thanks to his full name: ''[[AwesomeMcCoolname Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus]] '''[[UpToEleven Bombastus]]''' [[TheVonTropeFamily von Hohenheim]]''.

By some weird reason, wizards and MadScientist types often have names ending on "ius" (possibly just "us", but "ius" is just better). It makes their names sound more smartass and in the same time BadAss.

* Dr. Cornelius from ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''. (He's the ''other'' guy responsible for Logan becoming Wolverine.) [[note]]Most versions of the story depict a bald Asian guy and a red-haired or brown-haired, bearded guy working on the soon-to-be Wolvie. The bearded guy is Dr. Cornelius. The bald guy's the one who invented the adamantium bonding process, and ''Lady Deathstrike's father.'' He shows up more often and is more recognizable, in the comics and animated versions.[[/note]]
