* ''Manga/BlackButler'' has the doctor from the Circus arc. A perfectly friendly, calm doctor and stuck in a wheelchair, making prosthetics for the top-tier members of the circus that are all missing some limb. When he sees Ciel and Sebastian in Baron Kelvin's house, he non-chalantly gets up from his wheelchair and proves to have no problems using his legs, much to Joker's amazement. The doctor reveals that sitting in a wheelchair makes him seem more friendly, then drops the entire charade and reveals what a twisted person he really is, and the [[HumanResources resource for his prosthetics]].
