* Inachika Akitani from ''TheLuciferAndBiscuitHammer'' tends to end his introductions with "Also known as, The Master." * Caesar Clown of ''OnePiece'' bears the nickname "Master" (also written in English in the original Japanese edition), often just shortened to "M". He's a BitchInSheepsClothing MadScientist that you just LoveToHate...

** The recurring villain and the Doctor's EvilCounterpart, '''[[LargeHam THE]] [[MagnificentBastard MASTER]]'''! 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 "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. ** 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 character's debut story, "Terror of the Autons", a Time Lord informs that 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. G. Grace]]".

* ''{{Fansadox}}'' #37 has the titular psycho tattooed on his back the word 'Master' in Japanese (or so he says), and he likes (read: forces girls he rapes) to be called this. This becomes a plot point [[spoiler:when the girls escape, they find the sheriff and demand the supposed rapist-slash-sadist show his back. Turns out he wasn't the psycho, but the sheriff himself.]] Prime example of BondageIsBad. * In ARG/DarkDreamChronicle, [[TheSlenderManMythos Slendy]] is referred to as "the Master" except by a few Rebels. * Averted entirely by The Magistra of 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 [[DoctorWho The Master]] and the fact that she is a Time Lady. It was quickly pointed out the [[HliariousInHindsight The Master was male and dead]] and that her name came from [[MahouSenshiNegima 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)
