* ''Super MondayNightCombat'' has the various Defender classes (the Support, the Combatgirl, and Leo), who each combine elements of this style of gameplay with TheMedic. The Support can call in airstrikes and deploy a powerful turret that can be upgraded to heal allies and overclocked to shoot faster. The Combatgirl can deploy up to four weaker and more fragile (but faster-firing) "Combat Kitty" turrets, which can stick to walls and ceilings. She can also fortify deployed Combat Kitties to keep them from being destroyed while on the defensive. Leo has a slow-firing homing rocket turret, but his gameplay focuses more on him as a RobotMaster, able to buff allied bots and turn enemy bots into allies. Each of them has a primary weapon that can hurt enemies and heal allies, with Leo being a notable CombatMedic because his Mona Laser's healing pulse is charged by doing damage.
* Tails from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', moreso as the series has gone on. Even though the Tornado plane is actually owned by Sonic, it's essentially Tails' plane thanks to all the modifications and upgrades he has been able to give it over the years. Besides that, he packs quite a bit of other technology such as his "Miles Electric" tablet and remote-controlled assist vehicles.

So, behind the glamorous officers and the rough-and-tumble enlisted soldiers, there's one man who will always be there to give them a technologically empowered hand: '''The Engineer'''.

'''The Engineer''' is the go-to guy for any''thing'' in this man's army. Just as TheMedic takes care of any''one'' and their wellbeing, the Engineer takes care of their equipment to make sure that the Medic is needed as little as possible. He's also the one that constructs shelter and support machines like turrets and gun emplacements to give the infantry cover and a little extra oomph. Perhaps most importantly, the Engineer is usually the main mechanic, handling upkeep of vehicles.

* Anytime a story has [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarves]] in it expect them to be this as a race, usually using [[ClockPunk clockwork]] and occasionally [[SteamPunk steam powered]] technology

* The Reptools of ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinotrux}}'' are all small reptile/tool hybrids extremely good with machines, making them excellent medics for the larger dinosaur/vehicle Dinotrux and also extremely good at designing construction plans for practical buildings.

* Nick Ramos, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/DeadRising3'' and an auto mechanic, is another example of a leading Engineer. While Chuck Greene had the ability to construct Combo Weapons before him, Nick takes it UpToEleven by not requiring a workbench to combine materials, as well as being able to create Combo Vehicles.

Added DiffLines:

* Many operators in [[VideoGame/RainbowSix Rainbow Six: Siege]] have engineering degrees and develop their own specialized equipment. Examples include explosive traps, signal jammers, sensors that detect people or electronics through walls, a drone with a mounted taser, and a breaching device that can punch a hole in a wall and launch several grenades through it.

* The {{Player Character}}s in ''VideoGame/ScrapMechanic'' [[ExaggeratedTrope are all engineering specialists]] marooned on an automated agricultural world. The robots staffing the planet's facilities have run amok, and the Mechanics are the only people around to do anything about it - [[GadgeteerGenius but with their ability to build anything they can imagine]], [[RightManInTheWrongPlace their presence is more than enough]].

* Quite obviously, The Engineer, Dell Conagher (and both his father and grandfather, likely to be a family tradition, considering a few images seemed to imply that his father is the engineer from ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'') from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. He specifically is an example of a Combat Engineer, supplying ammo and equipment to fellow soldiers and constructing [[TheTurretMaster turrets]] and [[TransportersAndTeleporters teleporters]].

* ''VideoGame/DirtyBomb'': All of the Objective Specialist Mercs in the game can complete Arm, Disarm, and Repair objectives faster than any other Merc. [[note]]One thing to note - Engineers are the only support class for whom there is no free Merc for all players to start out with. To compensate, there is always one engie in the game's Free Rotation.[[/note]]
** For 30,000 credits (or with the Starter Pack), one can buy Proxy. Her shotguns (and one submachine gun) and machine pistols (or Desert Eagle) are nothing to scoff at, and with one of the fastest movement speeds in the game, she can function as a fast-attack class. However, with 90 HP, Proxy is so GlassCannon her official profile mentions the trope by name. Her special ability is to drop proximity mines that, once they arm, produce the most powerful non-Fire Support explosion in the game when tripped.
** Fletcher is a popular pick amongst pro players thanks to his 110 HP, only slightly slower movement speed, and access to the deadly Sticky Bombs. These stickies can [[PineappleSurprise stick to enemies]] or surfaces and are remote-detonated by Fletcher manually. His severely limited range limits his viability in open spaces and along corridors, however.
** The other pro-player pick for Engineers, however, is Bushwhacker. He has 110 HP and average speed, and packs along a fast-deploying SentryGun for the ride. This, combined with his use of the game's best submachine gun, mean he can set up [[MoreDakka deadly crossfires]] on offense or defense. Even when not on the objective, he's certainly the most viable of the Engineers for pure front-line offensive power.
** The as-yet-unreleased Merc, Turtle, is an Engineer with the ability to deploy an unfolding wall to act as cover or block enemy progress.
