* In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', [[spoiler:Wesley Stickler]] uses this as his justification for [[spoiler:[[PantyThief underwear theft]]]].



* ''Infinity'' series:
** The proclaimed motive of Lieblich Pharmeceuticals in ''VisualNovel/{{Ever17}}''. Except it's really just For Money! and For [[spoiler:Immortality]]!
** Again in ''VisualNovel/{{Remember11}}'', where Lieblich is swapping people's minds For Science! [[spoiler: and so that they can contact a being that exists beyond the concept of time]]
* Change the word science to magic and you have the motives of essentially every (non main character) magus in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}}. It's rather telling that the policy of the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Magic Association]] isn't 'Don't kill masses of people For Science!' but 'Don't get ''caught'' killing masses of people For Science!'



* It's mentioned in ''VisualNovel/{{Sickness}}'' that in the past Adder Technologies released a supposed "universal vaccine", only to pull it after making a large sum of money claiming it was "a medical trial" that didn't actually work as promised (more than likely an experiment on the placebo effect).

* Riff in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' is a mad scientist with awesome inventions who still lives with roommates in on-again off-again lower middle class poverty, all from not being able to make inventions that aren't destructive or useful in day to day life. This is parodied in the strip to the point his "Nice Earth" counterpart has won the Nobel Prize for focusing his inventions on peaceful and productive uses. Why he doesn't sell any of his various ray gun designs to the army. Furthermore, he turns out to be working as a freelance [[spoiler:mad scientist for the evil Hereticorp corporation]], which has [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy turned this trope into a major advantage.]]

* This is one of the core concepts in Bioshock. Part of Andrew Ryan's introduction/MotiveRant says that he built Rapture as a place "where the scientist would not be constrained by petty morality." And does he ever make good on his promise. Little girls are mutated into mindless slaves to gather ADAM, a PsychoSerum that grants super powers but [[SanitySlippage drives its users completely insane.]] Ryan was aware of the dangers of abusing ADAM, but downplayed them to keep it completely unregulated.

* The Professor in Haruki Murakami's novel ''Literature/HardBoiledWonderlandAndTheEndOfTheWorld'' is perhaps the best example of this trope in literature. He essentially causes the nameless protagonist's (boku, 'I') mind to disconnect from all reality and degenerate, directly causing his death, in the course of involuntarily-performed experiments to further research which is 'purely' scientific and implied to be laughably obscure. Unlike most MadScientists, however, (of which the Professor is otherwise a perfect example) the Professor is compassionate and genuinely sorry for the harm (death) he has caused.
