Igor is the {{Sidekick}} and manservant to a MadScientist. He's an absolute toady, loyal to a fault, and has no problem doing unsanitary scut-work (such as GraveRobbing) for his genius master, who is always addressed as "[[TheMaster Master]]," sometimes with an impressive lisp. He'll typically be a hunchback, dwarf, or even some small variety of monster. {{Evil Sorcerer}}s can substitute a tiny imp or demon. A [[{{Main/Uberwald}} vague European accent]] and/or a Creator/PeterLorre impression (despite Lorre's not having played that sort of role until late in his dotage) round out the vocal category.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'', after becoming horribly disfigured, Rob gets a job as Nurse Phantom working for Doctor S which more or less ends up with him becoming the Igor to Doctor S's MadDoctor. The only real difference is that they tend to bicker like an old married couple.
-->'''Dr S''': Back up the saw, Nurse Phantom, maybe next time...\\
'''Rob''': Told you we wouldn't need it, but ''no'', you made me lug it all the way here for nothing!

* In ''[[Literature/MythAdventures Myth Conceptions]]'', Skeeve poses as a creepy hunchback to scare potential guests away from the inn he and Aahz have been living in. When he later auditions for the Court Wizard job at Possiltum, Aahz adopts the same disguise to pose as Skeeve's assistant, effectively playing TheIgor to Skeeve's "cunning sorcerer".

** The motto of the Igors is "What goes around comes around"[[note]]Or perhaps "What goeth around comth around"[[/note]] 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...[[labelnote:...]]Or stops.[[/labelnote]]
