Actual practicing ''medical doctors'' are usually exempt from the evil title, probably because it's hard not to get behind a surgeon or doctor who actively works at saving people's lives, even if they're a [[DrJerk jerk]]. Those who aren't in a MedicalDrama tend to get less slack on this... In a nutshell, it's a mitigating factor, not an exception. (See "MadDoctor")

Interestingly, it's actually possible to get a doctorate in the study of evil. The field is called ''Ponerology'', although very few universities actually offer such a degree. ''Definitely'' issued by the AcademyOfEvil.

"MadDoctor".)

Interestingly, "Professors" aren't nearly evil as often as doctors, though Professor Blackhearts are not unheard of; this can be explained by the fact that Professor is associated with teaching, wisdom and a scholarly lifestyle (attributes of TheMentor), whereas Doctor seems to imply hands-on experience.

Notably enough,

* [[GratuitousGerman The Doktor]] from ''Anime/YuGiOhARCV''. His work involves implanting parasites into people's brains and brainwashing them. While he works for the Professor towards a [[WellIntentionedExtremist somewhat]] noble goal, the Doktor himself takes a lot of pleasure in his work. He expresses zero concern for his puppets, and talks to Yuya, simply to brag about how he can't rescue the captives.

** Several characters in the WildStorm universe (where Authority takes place) have held the title of "The Doctor," but only the so-called "renegade" Doctor was explicitly said to be an actual doctor, being a heart surgeon. And, ironically, evil. The one given above was a (former) multi-media/dotcom billionaire and his successor was a Palestinian suicide bomber before getting his powers (also good).
