* From ''WesternAnimation/{{Plasmo}}'' is Professor Sashimi's assistant Joyce. She looks the part to the point of being easily mistaken for male (to the point of having a male voice actor as well), and, despite being a loyal assistant to Sashimi, she also wants to make her own big scientific discovery, along with having a heavy infatuation towards Coredor.

* 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, tanned surfer-dude who wants to be a TV News Anchor, and dresses accordingly.

Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SheepInTheBigCity'', the Mad (I mean, [[RunningGag Angry]]) Scientist is ready to launch his [[MakesSenseInContext sheep-powered raygun]]. He presses a button, ominous music swells, everybody holds their breath... turns out the button only summons an Igor. Doubly funny because the Angry Scientist looks down on the Igor, even though he is ''exactly as deformed as the Angry Scientist himself''.
--> '''Igor:''' You rang, master?\\
'''Angry Scientist:''' Yes, ''troll''. [[PoirotSpeak Pushing this button for me.]]

* ''{{Godland}}'' features Eghad, the simple assistant to criminal mastermind Friedrich Nickelhead. Eghad's intelligence is extremely lacking, and he knows little but undying loyalty to his master. Unusually for this trope, he's also Nickelhead's bodyguard and packs a frankly ridiculous amount of power in his tiny frame. Also somewhat uniquely, Nickelhead isn't cruel to Eghad.

Igor can't fight (usually), and if encountered by the hero in a combat situation, will [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere high-tail it out]] with or without his master, unless the master tries to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness sacrifice him]] to enhance his own chances. [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty Abduction of young screaming ladies]], however, is within Igor's power.

* In the ''{{Dragaera}}'' series, Sethra Lavode's servant Tukko/Chaz (his full name is Dri'Chazik a Tukknaro) comes across as a parody/subversion of this. In the Vlad series, he's described as constantly shaking and walking with a pronounced stoop, but Vlad suspects that this is ObfuscatingStupidity because despite his seeming infirmity, he never spills food or drink. This reading is supported in the prequel books in which he is revealed to be a famous wizard.

** The motto of the Igors is "What goes around comes around"[[note:Or perhaps "What goeth around comth around"]] referring to both their habit of recycling body parts so much and so often and also their karmic approach to treatments. When an Igor gives treatment he expects that later he can come back and claim any strong organs that person has which might be able to help someone else (they tend to have waiting lists) but sometimes people get unnerved when an Igor shows up at their death bed look rather patient and refuse to let him have their organs when they die. The Igor accepts this and leaves. And doesn't ever come back to that village. Nor does any other Igor. What goes around comes around...
