* It's been noted on ''Series/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]]
--> '''Bernadette''': Oh, I take pacts very seriously. One time at my lab, a petri dish of genetically modified super-virus went missing. That day we made a pinky swear never to admit we crossed Ebola with the common cold.

* Doctor Mohinder Suresh of ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. A true blue good guy in the first season; evil tendencies started to creep in around the same time he started [[TookALevelInBadass taking levels in badass]] in the second season. A screwed-up recipe for homemade AppliedPhlebotinum resulted in something a FaceHeelTurn, though. At present, the jury is out on whether he's good or evil.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8688354/1/Crucible Crucible]]'' has Dr. Swan, a man who wanted to make his career by imprisoning an apparently amnesiac man to perform illegal treatments on him (which include direct electro brain simulation). When the patient escaped with one of his nurses and years later, when the woman came back to look for jobs after her husband's death, he took revenge by forcing her to prostitute her body and later drown her into drug abuses until she died from overdose and [[Characters/MassEffectCommanderShepard her daughter]] was adopted away. Karma came to bite him in the ass when her dead husband, [[spoiler: who turned out to be the previously sealed GrimReaper]] gave him [[FateWorseThanDeath a punishment]].
* [[KnightOfCerebus Professor Kabuto]] from ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' certainly counts. The Changelings' psychotic Alchemist Master and resident MadDoctor, Kabuto views all other creatures as potential test subjects for his horrific experiments, which in the past has resulted in countless deaths of both other creatures and his own kind. He repeatedly attempts to get permission to or attempt to vivisect the mane cast and the other heroes he comes in conflict with. He also plays this trope literally, as he has a doctorate of somesort.

* Played for very dark laughs in ''VideoGame/SouthOfReal''. The KnightTemplar responsible for all the nightmarish experiments in the mansion and the main character's past is, technically, a doctor. That is, he has a doctorate in the arts.

* [[spoiler:Scythe Master]] from ''PhantomOfInferno'' is eventually revealed to have a doctorate in psychology. It explains how [[spoiler:he was able to erase Ellen and Reiji's memories, and brainwash the Zahlenschwestern into being,]] though it's subverted because he doesn't use the title of "Doctor".

* Dr. Barton in ''Film/NextOfKin1982'' acts in a suspiciously aloof fashion and is evasive of the details of the heroine's past, including information on her unstable aunt Rita who may possibly be the malevolent presence alluded to in her mother's diary.

** The moniker used by Thaddeus from the DLC Story Operation "'''Toby's Friendship Raid'''" in the 8th playthrough of the operation is Dr. Garrius Winglehopper. With the title of doctor accompanying it, the name is clearly styled after those of typical evil {{mad scientist}}s and the like. Given Thaddeus' habit of constantly changing his name though, the doctor part is obviously just in name only.
