* On Roleplay site [[http://transformersgalaxyrp.freeforums.net/ Transformers Galaxy]], Chief of Medicine Kick-Start zig-zags this with MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate. She's an EvilGenius, a MadScientist ''and'' a MadDoctor, and she's even got a Doctorate, but... not quite as official as her patients would like it to be.

** While the Fine Arts degree can be an honorary degree, it is revealed that Kick-Start did technically earn hers, and was 'only' denied her degree in medicine because of an issue with her morals and ethics, turning it into a MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate as well.

* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'': Justin Russo [[ParodiedTrope parodied this trope]] when he pretended to be a doctor in paleontology to impress London Tipton from ''SuiteLifeOnDeck'' in a crossover episode. She stopped believing him when he didn't know what to do when somebody nearby needed medical help.

* Dr. Eggman manages to put a rather cruel twist on this trope in ''ComicBooks/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog''. One of his minions confronts him about the cybernetics that were given to their crippled and diseased sister, stating that they aren't curing her like he said they would. Eggman then cheerily explains that, not being a medical doctor, he didn't know what her condition even ''is'', but went through with it anyway because he could use the threat of letting the minion's sister die to keep them both in line.

* The CSIVerse has two ex-doctors. ''Series/{{CSI}}'' had Dr. Ray Langston and ''{{CSI NY}}'' has Dr. Sheldon Hawkes. Both have ended up giving emergency care a time or two. Hawkes even helps with a bicycle first aid team in the park. Of course, the medical examiners (Robbins, Hammerbeck) are also doctors, but don't practice medicine.

* Lampshaded, played with and kicked to death in ''TopGear'', of all programmes. Jeremy revealed that he had obtained a cheaper quote for insurance because he called himself 'Doctor', rather than a journalist - the two pay vastly different rates of Car Insurance. He ignored the other two's protestations that HONORARY doctorates don't count.
