* Grimer from ''SonicTheComic'' is an exemplary Mad Doctor's Assistant to BigBad Dr. Robotnik. As well as the usual Igor traits (hideous goblin-like appearance, frail build, intense loyalty, referring to his boss as "Master", etc) he was also something of a HypercompetentSidekick, being the primary designer of many of Robotnik's most dangerous war machines and personally coming to Robotnik's rescue on several occasions. His finest moment came when he was jailed after Robotnik was apparently destroyed by the Chaos Emeralds, where he proved he was a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] ChessMaster and managed to manipulate the heroes easily from his prison and save his master.

* In fitting with the setting's Blue-aligned alchemically created zombies, modeled in the vein of Frankenstein's Monster, ''[[MagicTheGathering Innistrad]]'' also contains references to the mad geniuses who create them, and the assistants who... assist. Two are mentioned directly, [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=221171 Deranged Assistant]] and [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=220631 Stitcher's Apprentice]], the latter of whom is name-checked in the flavor text of [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=227287 Rooftop Storm]], which is a direct Frankenstein reference (and also calls back the Assistant's gripe about the way orders are barked at him).

* Also parodied in ''Film/ReturnOfTheKillerTomatoes'', sequel to ''AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes''. Dr. Putrid T. Gangrene the MadScientist (portrayed most lovingly by John Astin) is annoyed by the mere presence of his assistant Igor, who is a blond, buff, and tanned surfer-dude who wants to be a TV News Anchor.

* The trope makers were Fritz, Frankenstein's sidekick in Universal's ''[[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} Frankenstein]]'' and [[Creator/BelaLugosi Ygor]], the [[TheManTheyCouldntHang broken-necked]] character from the sequel, ''Film/SonOfFrankenstein''. ** Lugosi's Ygor [[UnbuiltTrope is rather less servile]] and more of a villain in his own right than the established versions of the trope.

* ''Film/VictorFrankenstein'': Played with; Igor starts off the film with a physical deformity and he does become Victor's assistant, but his personality is very different than what this trope is normally associated with. Igor is Victor's near-equal in terms of his intelligence, so their master-servant dynamic is downplayed--the movie instead presents them as mentor and protégé. Moreover, after Victor corrects Igor's crooked back, the latter looks completely normal.
