* ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' has Fortiscue, who fits this to a T, complete with worshipful improvised names for his mistress Zenith ("Yes, my one-and-onlyness!") This doesn't stop him from being a ServileSnarker when she gets a tad too ridiculous. [[spoiler:It's also a complete reversal of fate, since when he's not under the influence of the MindControlDevice he himself created, he's ''her'' master--she's an android, and not intended to be evil.]]

* In the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Onimi is the Igor to Supreme Overlord Shimrra, the leader of the Yuuzhan Vong.

** An early Discworld book from before the first Igor was introduced invoked this trope to describe thaumaturgists, the "lab technicians" whom wizards employ to collect eye of newt or powdered tiger testicle or whatever else they need.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' tale ''FanFic/SlippingBetweenWorlds'' the suggestion is made that in keeping with the Discworld principle that ''everything'' has its opposite quality, Biers' Igor is in fact a ''Rogi'' - the polar opposite of Igor-ness, one who is incredibly skilled at dismantling a living body, but not so hot at re-assembling it again afterwards.
* The Assassins' Guild School is given a replacment medical specialist to take over from the ineffectual doctor of ''Discworld/{{Pyramids}}''. Matron Igorina snaps at the chance to work for methodically sane people, which she finds every bit as professionally fulfilling as working for homicidal psychopaths. The myriad ways in which a Guild student can damage themselves in the course of Education fully occupy her working day, and the fatality rate has dropped considerably. She takes every available opportunity to go out on Assassin missions as a non-combatant medical consultant, and even lectures Guild students in necessary areas such as Personal And Social Development. [[note]]Sex Education. All teachers at the School agree this is vitally necessary - so long as ''somebody else'' teaches it.[[/note]] Matron Igorina's sex education lectures are long, detailed, supported by graphic iconographic slides, remoselessly emphasise all the things that may not go according to plan in a sexual encounter, and tend to leave traumatised and impressionable teenage girls staggering out vowing they will never, ever, bump uglies with a male. Ever. As a result the Guild School has a practically zero rate of regrettable things like teen pregnancies and only the most adventurous students break the School rules to pursue assignations. The School management is quietly pleased with this.

* An EnforcedTrope in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''; the whole of Europa has been under the control of Sparks for so long that pretty much ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050506#.WgZqK4Zrzq4 anyone]]'' will be quickly reduced to a grovelling mess if one starts ranting like a cut-rate stage villain.
