* Rare example of the Harmful Shrink as one of the good guys: Dr. Vail, psychologist for Dream Park in ''[[Literature/DreamPark The Barsoom Project]]'', lacks empathy and is willing to risk others' sanity in order to protect the Park (because where else would he have absolute control of subjects' experiences?). Be ''very'' glad he's on the hero's side, because what he does to the villains in the end ain't pretty....

* ''ComicBook/ButtonMan'': Harry's secret handler in the first album turns out to be a renowned psychologist--the same one he's relating his story to. Harry notes that he was especially interested in the gory details of the kills he committed on his orders.

* ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'' demonstrates an example who isn't actively malicious in his intent with patients, but he ''does'' show that incompetence can be equally dangerous. [[spoiler:Namely, Dr. Hank, the town's [[SuperDoc general medical practitioner]], makes "keep a journal" and "repress your issues" into ''every'' therapy solution, which leaves protagonist Mae Borowski incredibly ill-equipped to deal with her own dissociation and psychosis, leaving her to viciously attack another child and later drop out of college when her symptoms flared up and frightened her away.]]

* As mentioned above, Hugo Strange from ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''. As chief psychiatrist of Arkham, he's more interested in finding out how the criminal mind works than actually curing it, going so far as to sabotage his patients' progress as "tests" ([[FridgeBrilliance this may go some ways towards explaining Arkham's revolving door]]). He eventually sets his sights on Batman and begins orchestrating much more ([[NeverSayDie potentially]]) deadly "experiments" for him.

--> '''Strange''': "I had to put my treatment to the test, Batman. You know, to see if the criminal mind can ever '''really''' be cured."

* Franchise/{{Batman}} runs into a ''lot'' of these. Probably because psychology and madness are such an important part of his mythos.

* ''Film/TheApointmentsOfDennisJennings'': Dr. Schooner really couldn't be a worse therapist. Sure, Dennis is irritatingóbut doodling during a session is bad, having the doorman to the building sit in for you when you can't make Dennis's appointment is bad, mocking Dennis while in the company of friends is really bad, and dating Dennis's girlfriend is mega-super-bad.
