*** Disproven in the official Valve {{TF2}} comics, in which the Heavy is [[OnlySaneMan one of the most stable]] and [[GeniusBruiser smart members]] of the team. His backstory (in ''Meet the Director'' and ''A Cold Day in Hell'') clearly shows he works as a merc not because he likes hurting people (although he does not object to it) but to provide money for his elderly mother and three sisters and because of a wish to punish "evil people" (although his definition of evil is pretty utilitarian, "anyone who hurts the people I like").

not this trope. there is no dubious notion about the two doctor characters. they are regular scientiest.
* ''Film/{{Species}}'' has a whole team of these guys, who while not the villains of the film, have rather unsound ethics. However, only two, Dr Stephen Arden and Dr Laura Baker, actually have doctorates.

* ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'': Doctor Impossible, thanks to his [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder Malign Hypercognition Disorder]]. He's an AntiVillain, but he did get up to doomsday machine mark V.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom: Evil? Yeah. You have to be pretty evil for your father to make his servant promise to always protect ''the world'' from ''you'', ''when you're a little boy''.

* The titular Doctor of the [[SidAndMartyKrofftProductions Sid & Marty Krofft]] series ''Dr. Shrinker''. His theme song even states that he's a madman with an evil mind. * It's been noted on TheBigBangTheory that Doctor Sheldon Cooper is "one lab accident away from becoming a super villain" (which makes the page quote deliciously ironic). Leonard's mother, Dr. Beverly Hofstadter, can give you the closest thing to MindRape a sitcom grounded in something resembling reality can offer via her questionable usage of her psychiatrist skills. Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, while usually seeming to be less likely to snap than her boyfriend and DistaffCounterpart Sheldon, has offered to have her lab monkeys kill someone more than once. Dr. Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz's work for a lab private pharmaceutical company supposedly curing diseases is also implied to be morally ambiguous-which is scary because she's [[StepfordSmiler always smiling]]

* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Doctor Killjoy]] from ''TheSuffering'', a 1900s level doctor who kills most of his patients in attempts to cure their mental problems. Like Josef Mengele, but British, and he can come back from the dead. EVIL! Still, he apparently has a genuine desire to help Torque with his problems even through extreme means. * Though never called a doctor outright, you'd have to have a couple doctorates in badass to engineer MULTIPLE plagues which nicely complement each other, as Hakke Dal from MakenX (Maken Shao on Playstation) so capably demonstrated. Also he shows he has no moral compunction against [[ShootTheDog killing his own daughter]] should you brainjack her to use against him. The reason she was trapped in a psych ward in the first place was because he tested the one of the first prototypes of the Uvad virus on her. He'd likely be BFFs with Killjoy above in his college days and may have even roomed with him. Also, he's an oddly black man in a game world full of greys. (Though all Hakkes intend to kill a lot of people to forwards their utopia, Dal seems to be the only one enjoying his work. Margaret is just AxCrazy and hopped up on designer drugs like Eugenics and Relativism. BigBad Geist is actually one of the sanest members of the group, as both he and right-hand Yusef can be diplomatically reasoned within a couple endings, provided you made the appropriate storyline choices.)

[[folder: Roleplay]] * The rather ironically-named Dietrich "Medic" Luzweit in Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG would certainly qualify, being an unstable doctor who nearly lost his medical license after somehow removing a patient's skeleton. The only thing that kept him in action was the fact that [[ItMakesSenseInContext a mutant dinosaur apocalypse had just started]] and there was a desperate need for people with medical training. Averted by just about every ''other'' [[TheMedic medic]] in the RPG, though. [[/folder]]
