* Played straight and subverted in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' novels with Doctor Catherine Halsey. Played straight in that she is ''repeatedly'' compared to Mengele in Creator/KarenTraviss's Kilo-Five trilogy due to Halsey's role in the SPARTAN-II program. The subversion is the fact that all novels prior to the Kilo-Five trilogy depicts Halsey as being nothing like a mad doctor.

** In the episode "Coda", Janeway merely imagines the EMH to be like this during a hallucination when she awakens in sick bay after a shuttle crash. The doctor coldly informs her that she has a fatal ilness and refuses to let her see anyone else, then erects a forcefield to perform involuntary euthanasia on Janeway.

* Played for laughs by DaveBarry in various columns, where he tends to theorize that the "medical treatment" doctors provide generally consists of them performing sadistic tests on you until you are smart enough to pretend whatever you came in for is better. He also describes prostate exams like this (though in contrast, the doctor who performs those tests comes across better).

** The Orks' "[[TitleDrop Mad Doks]]" or "[[MeaningfulName Painboyz]]" are nothing ''but'' these. These Orks have basic medical knowledge hard-wired into their [=DNA=], along with [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder a compulsion to "tinker."]] They've been known to decapitate an Ork, and graft its head onto another Ork's body just to see what happens. Or swap two Orks' limbs, just for fun. Or replace an Orks' brain with a live squig, for the hell of it. Or give an Ork bionic lungs, when he came in with a toothache. Or just plain ''forget'' what they were supposed to be doing, pick a limb at random and bolt on a replacement. You have to be ''really'' desperate to visit a Mad Dok, so some don't bother waiting for you to show up...

You have to be ''really'' desperate to visit a Mad Dok, so some don't bother waiting for you to show up...up. This is probably best displayed in the spinoff ''TabletopGame/{{Gorkamorka}}'', which has six pages of tables dedicated to the Dok's surgery, because it's that unpredictable. Some interpretations even indicate that the Orks in a mob led by a Dok have FeelNoPain not because of the Dok providing medical help, but because the Orks are so afraid of him doing so that they pretend not to have suffered any injury less severe than decapitation, while chanting phrases like "Missin' leg? No, dat'z just a skratch, 'onest."

* Maester Qyburn from ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. He was stripped of his maester status for performing [[strike:autopsies on people...''while they were still alive'']] vivisections. He ended up working with the most foul and depraved mercenary company in Westeros and beyond. And given the world includes companies led by people such as Gregor Clegane that is truly impressive. Qyburn fitted right in.

* More of a Mad Research Psychiatrist than anything, but [[spoiler: Lydia]] from TheChroniclesOfProfessorJackBaling would technically count as one of these.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', Professor Kabuto Beetle, the EvilGenius of the Changelings. He rivals Twilight in terms of intellect, and has a Doctorate, but ''really'' likes performing horrid medical experiments on anypony he can get away with, and [[{{Sadist}} relishes doing so]]. He's so bad with this trope that [[EvenEvilHasStandards the rest of the Changelings loath him.]]
