* The worker units in ''{{Starcraft}}'' fulfill the role of engineers, but it is the Terran SCVs that follow the trope most closely, being piloted units dedicated to construction, mining, terrain-forming, and unit repair. Science Vessels and their succeeding equivalent in the sequel are worth mentioning too, as their detection capabilities are invaluable, and their abilities are no less useful in harassing the enemy or supporting allied troops.

** Also, the Pyro uses a flamethrower, a traditional engineer weapon. He's also the best ally of the Engineer, being extremely adept at unmasking the Spy (who can easily bring down the Engineer's building with his sapper) and disable sappers.

** Grant himself was technically a Combat Engineer. West Point was the first Engineering School to open in the United States, and most officers retired to work as engineers for rail road companies.
** Grant was Infantry, Lee was an engineer. Only the top of the class got posted to the Corps of Engineers. But the Engineers have traditionally been the elite of the US Army: From Bull Run to the Battle of the Bulge, the last ditch has always been defended by the engineers who dug it.

* ''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.
