* Harte from the Irish film ''{{Film/Calvary Calvary}}''. His first reaction to seeing a woman who has recently attempted suicide (indicated by the bandages on her wrist) is to tell her, "Next time, cut deeper," like he's making a witty little joke. He also seems to think it's his duty to carry the banner of athiesm by posing [[CynicismCatalyst utterly brutal questions]] to Father James, expecting him to account at once for all the misery in the world, ''just'' to see the priest get riled up.

* Dr. Kaufmann in ''SilentHill''. Serving as a supplier for a drug dealing cult that [[spoiler:sacrifices children to their dark goddess]] probably puts him far enough across the MoralEventHorizon for him to [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate be quite a bit more evil than a typical Dr. Jerk.]] The Dr. Kaufmann in "Silent Hill: Shattered Memories" fits this trope much better. He's an abrasive, condescending, manipulative ''therapist'' who is nonetheless trying to help the patient.

* Dr Allison Mann in ''YTheLastMan'' spends much of her time either belittling Yorick or threatening his pet monkey with dire fates. When they finally part ways Yorick's last request is to see her smile for the first time in four years ? Mann's response is to break down in tears of frustration instead. She angrily denies that love is anything but a biological reaction, but is clearly desperate for love herself [[spoiler:eventually finding it with Australian spy Rose Copen.]]

** [[{{Jerkass}} Frank Burns]] is a rare example of an asshole doctor who is really incompetent, and has a fool's gold heart (he openly admits he was just in it for the money, and is one of the biggest bigots in the series). He also openly admitted (during the series that is) that he was in it for the skin care to get rid of his pimples, and he hoped to earn big money. In the TV series, he once stated that he flunked out of two medical schools and took twice the normal time to become a doctor. He was also tricked into admitting that he paid $400 dollars (a large sum at the time) for the answers for a critical exam. He was worse in the original book. Burns was at the last era in history where a practicing physician could get a license ''without going to medical school''. In Frank's case, he served an apprenticeship under his father. In the film, he is extremely religious in public, hypocritical about it (see Maj. O'Houlihan), and falsely blames a man's death on a very timid orderly.

* Dr. Lancelot Sprat in the "Doctor in the House" series of films is overbearing with students and directly tells patients that examinations and diagnoses have nothing to do with them. But when students are in trouble, he will provide help for them, either directly, and behind the scenes.

** ''Micron Legend'' (''[[TransformersArmada Armada]]'') Ratchet, known to Western fans as ''Red Alert'', is TheSpock and thus seemed to be emotionally detached from his patients in the first episodes.

* The handsome and rugged ''Ben Casey'', from the groundbreaking MedicalDrama of same name. Though a brilliant neurosurgeon, Dr. Casey was arrogant and impatient, often arguing and throwing insults at his colleagues. The series was a smash hit from 1961-1966, and [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Vincent Edwards' portrayal of the surly doc won women over by the millions.]]

** The remake for US audiences, ''Series/KingdomHospital'', played Stig's counterpart, Stegman, as a massive, overbearing [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]] as well - but did so [[PlayedForLaughs more for laughs]]. Stegman never even comes close to [[spoiler:poisoning Hook with tetradotoxin]], and even his inevitable VillainousBreakdown becomes a lot funnier. Hook, the main protagonist, has his moments of jerkishness too -- but he legitimately has a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold heart of gold.]]
