* ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'' is the ''doctor's'' name and may be the trope codifier (although in the novel he is Swiss and doesn't actually receive his doctorate).

* Dr. Erskine from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' is a benevolent example, working for the Allies on their supersoldier project. His EvilCounterpart Dr. Zola fits the usual portrayal, as he works for the Nazis and then {{ComicBook/HYDRA}}, but he actually expresses some regret about what the ComicBook/RedSkull has him do. In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', [[spoiler:he makes a point to correct this, he's actually Swiss. It's also shown that he is in fact genuinely evil, and gleefully tortured/experimented on American soldiers.]]

* WaltDisney's Ludwig von Drake (sometimes psychologist, sometimes OmnidisciplinaryScientist, depending on the comic) comes from Vienna. Otherwise, there's not much emphasis on his German/Austrian origin, but he's got a very obvious accent in his cartoons.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{CountDuckula}}'': Dr. Von Goosewing - but given the series takes place in Eastern Europe and the character is a nod to Professor Van Helsing fron Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' its pretty well justified.

* The Norwegian Professor Ingvar Johanssen of ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' was the one responsible for digging up the Ankaran Sarcophagus. His accent is outrageous, though surprisingly realistic[[note]]if on the ''Swedish'' side of outrageously broad Scandinavian accents[[/note]], for a one-shot stereotype character.

In Russian classical literature set in the 18th and 19th centuries, there's a related trope of [[NotThatKindOfDoctor the other kind of doctor]] to be German as indeed was often the case [[TsaristRussia during that period]].
