* Averted in ''Anime/ToukenRanbuHanamaru'' - the Master of the citadel [[NonEntityGeneral doesn't actually appear]], as they're supposed to represent the player of [[VideoGame/ToukenRanbu the game on which the series is based]], but they love all of the Sword Warriors dearly. The master does things for them like buy them books and sew [[BeachEpisode swimsuits for them]], and when their master gets sick, the Sword Warriors all worry and do things like make soup, and go out to find a special herb to make medicine from. It's all very [[WAFF hanamaru]].

Not to be confused with the Creator/PaulThomasAnderson [[Film/TheMaster film]], or with the TV show ''Series/MasterNinja'' (also known simply as ''Series/TheMaster''). Also not to be confused with the OldMaster.

* ''MaisonIkkoku'': The bartender at the [=ChaChaMaru=] is known as "Master." Suppose this may double as EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep, but he DOES fit with the big mustache and the great dining hall. As for evil plans, well, he has a crush on his boozy redhead slacker alcoholic waitress [[spoiler:and eventually marries her]], so he's got that going for him. "Master" is actually what Japanese people call bartenders in general; you can see it in a few other series, like ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad''.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' [[{{Elseworld}} Elsewords]] story "The Master of the Future", a turn-of-the-century Batman battled the so-called "Master", Alexandre [=LeRoi=](very likely inspired by the Jules Verne example in Literature below), who attempted to destroy the Gotham City World's Fair Exposition from his airship, via a [[{{Steampunk}} solar cannon composed of an array of lenses that concentrated sunlight into a cohesive beam]].

** The series' longest recurring solo villain and the Doctor's EvilCounterpart. 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.
