* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_theorem Master Theorem]], Theorem,]] for deducting the computation time of divide-and-conquer algorithms.



** On at least three occasions in the Second Doctor's run, the Doctor is told that "The Master" wants to see him (on one occasion it's the Great Intelligence, on another it's the Master of the Land of Fiction, and on the other it's Professor Maxtible). In each case he reacts with alarm. Since the Master proper hadn't been invented then, his misgivings can only be down to [[GenreSavvy his knowledge of this trope]]. (In-universe, in the Master's debut story, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E1TerrorOfTheAutons "Terror of the Autons"]], a Time Lord informs the Doctor that the Master has taken to referring to himself by that title; though the Doctor knew the character before this, he is apparently unaware of the change in his moniker). After the Master proper had already been established, the Fifth Doctor, while playing cricket, was informed he played as well as "the Master", and got progressively more nervous until the other man clarified that he was talking about "the other Doctor" -- [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._G._Grace W.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' The Master of Paris is an over two-hundred year old powerful spark who instills dread in most of the other players in the political sphere of Europa and can control everything including the very bricks in his city to use as weapons against his opponents or those who would defy him.

* Averted entirely by the Magistra of ''VideoGame/SuburbanSenshi''. (The Magistra being the feminine Latin word for Master) This was brought up exactly once in RP where someone compared her name to that of [[Series/DoctorWho the Master]] and the fact that she is a Time Lady. It was quickly pointed out that [[HilariousInHindsight the Master was male and dead]] and that her name came from [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Magistra Magi]] (despite not being one) because she was the first spell-casting Time Lord and wanted to reference that. (Which match previous and later statements made by her player.)

* The NES game BionicCommando featured Master-D, leader of the now defunct BADDS, a villain born as a result of ExecutiveMeddling. Before Nintendo censored it, he was Adolf Hitler, [[CameBackWrong brought back from the dead]] by TheEmpire to help them finish a superweapon. Master-D probably felt at home, as The Empire was clearly PuttingOnTheReich. Fortunately, the player will have a chance to make Hit...Master-D's [[YourHeadAsplode head explode in a very graphic scene for the SNES]].

** The series' longest recurring solo villain and the Doctor's EvilCounterpart -- who actively chose the title just as the Doctor did his, which tells you rather a lot about him[[labelnote:*]]well, ''usually'' "him", the most recent incarnation is a "her"[[/labelnote]] as a person.
** Going by this name so amused the Master that even when he went incognito he often chose a paper-thin-disguise alias based on its sound or [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign meaning]] (Mister Magister, Professor Thascales, Col. Masters, [[spoiler:Missy]], etc.). On the rare occasions anyone's asked what he's the master ''of'', his response has been that he's "the master of all matter" or simply "The Master of All". By the same token, the Doctor is "a doctor of many things" or "The Doctor of Everything" plus a couple of less-used versions referring to time-travel. It's been suggested that the Master's name comes from his degree at the Time Lord Academy. Bear in mind that a master's degree is just one step below a doctorate -- this might explain the enmity between the Doctor and the Master! In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar "A Good Man Goes to War"]], it's hinted that the word "doctor" (which means "person of knowledge" or "healer") comes from the Doctor himself. So it would be fitting for the word "Master" (which means "controller" and "man of knowledge") to come from him as well.
