* ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'': The trio of parapsychologists are at the start of the franchise not taken serious by anyone and soon get dismissed from Columbia University. As it happens there is an outbreak of paranormal activity to vindicate them at short notice, otherwise they'd probably still be out of a job.

* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' former Maester Qyburn is a magical version, stripped of his chain by the Citadel for his research into magic and what lies beyond death. While the Citadel does appear to disapprove of magic, the main reason was probably that his research involved ''vivisecting'' people. He seems pretty normal most of the time, but it's worth noting that he's had two known jobs since that happened: as a member of a famously vicious band of sellswords who wouldn't care if he cut open the odd screaming prisoner, and as spymaster for someone whose massive paranoia supplied him with ready access to well sound-proofed dungeon cells and people who should never be seen again.

* Used for a AddedAlliterativeAppeal gag in ''CaptainUnderpants'' - Professor Pippy P. Poopypants was "giggled out of Georgetown, howled out of Harvard, yuk-yukked out of Yale, snickered out of Stanford, and chuckled out of Chatanooga State Technical Community College". Not because of his inventions (they didn't even get around to seeing them), because of his name.

* This occasionally happens in RealLife. Usually, it's because the scientist has been rather... prolific with his wild theories, and this thus becomes more of a case of him [[CryingWolf happening to (for once) be right.]] Could you blame people for [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment ignoring]] the IgnoredExpert if he'd been predicting some kind of world-ending disaster annually before he lucked out?
