* Dr. Jekyll from ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'', particularly in the original book, where his reason for making the potion was essentially to do bad things and not get caught. His alter-ego, Mr. Hyde, averts this.

** Dr. Girlfriend/Dr. Mrs. The Monarch: Not only evil, but better at it than the Monarch himself. She acts as a moderating force on him, but if you assume that means she's secretly good you are sadly mistaken.
*** It is later revealed her Doctorate is Honorary from donating money to an [[AcademyOfEvil Evil College]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'': Doctor Weird: Utterly insane.
** The same could just as easily be said for Doctor Wongburger.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Evil, yet incompetent. Seriously, he makes Drakken look like Victor Von Doom. He's always beaten by a ''platypus'' for crying out loud!
** That's not just any platypus, mind you. Perry the Platypus ''is'' "a semi-aquatic, egg laying mammal of ACTION!"
*** In a recent episode, he ''was'' beaten by an ordinary "doesn't do much" platypus.
*** He's also been beaten by an ordinary doesn't-do-anything-whatsoever ''potted plant''.
** Actually, this is kind of a parody---he isn't actually a doctor, he just uses the title. [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter His own daughter]] pointed out that his diploma was fake.

* ''Music/TheyMightBeGiants'': Doctor Worm: He's not a real doctor, but he is a real worm, he is an actual worm.
* ''Music/{{Lordi}}'': When "Dr. Sin is In", you want to be out.
* DoctorSteel: No one's sure what he's a doctor of, exactly (he's said he's a Doctor of "Reality Engineering"); but he's bent on taking over the world using an army of robotic toys and brainwashed "toy soldiers" so that he can make the world a better place (for him).

** Doctor Light: Two of them in TheDCU, the male one (who also uses his surname as his moniker - Arthur Light) is evil, the female one is good [[DefrostingIceQueen (but very abrasive)]]. It helps that the female Dr. Light happens to be a practicing medical doctor as well as an [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist all-around scientist]].

** Shou Tucker, who made his own wife into a talking chimera to get his State Alchemist license, and made his daughter into one to keep it. In the manga omakes, he is the only character to end up going to Hell.

** Shou Tucker, who made his own wife into a talking chimera to get his State Alchemist license, and made his daughter into one to keep it. In the manga omakes, he is the only character to end up going to Hell. Which is saying something since at least one of the ones who went to heaven was a psychopath who loved blowing up people for kicks and giggles.

Added DiffLines:

* The enigmatic [[spoiler:[[TheGhost W. D. Gaster]]]] from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' seems to have one, given the dangerous nature of his creations (like the Core, the [[spoiler:machine that caused the fatal accident]] and [[spoiler:his implied connection to Sans' Gaster Blasters (as they are named in the files)]], as well as the fear certain [=NPCs=] express when discussing him.

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': SCP-231 is a woman who can only be attended by medical personnel who haven't taken the Hippocratic Oath. Why? Because she has to be permanently strapped to a hospital bed, and once daily she has to be subjected to a medical procedure so horrific that most of the details can't be disclosed or else she gives birth to...''something'' which could cause untold death and destruction.
