* In 1974, during a World Cup qualifier in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), the Australian soccer team got a local witch-doctor to curse the opposition, but couldn't produce the money when he demanded payment, causing him to switch the curse to the Australian team. The curse was used as ann "explanation" for Australia's failure to qualify for subsequent World Cups, most notably 1998, when Australia was leading Iran 2-0 late in the final qualifying game (after tying the first game 1-1), only for Iran to score two late goals and qualify on away goals. In 2003, Australian television personality John Safran paid another witch doctor to remove the curse, and Australia then qualified for the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.

* Kururu from ''KeroroGunsou'' may be considered a MadScientist version of the WitchDoctor. He's a creepy, sneaky InsufferableGenius who spends most of his time in his lab. And whenever he helps someone (even one of his squadmates), there's almost always a catch.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}: Escape 2 Africa'' Melman becomes the witch doctor of a herd of giraffes after the previous one died. [[spoiler:Turns out he didn't.]]

* The Wizard from ''ConanTheBarbarian'' is a perfect example of this: he is Asian rather than the usual Jamaican/Caribbean, but he wears clothes made of seaweed and he seems quite mad. He turns out to know his stuff, however.
* Tia Dalma, first seen in ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean : Dead Man's Chest'' seems to be the living incarnation of this trope -- her little hut has the fixings for ''everything,'' from rum to music boxes to human souls.
* Elzora, the creepy old witch in ''EvesBayou''. She has some bad blood with Mozelle (herself a HotWitch), though it's never revealed why.

* Mumbo Jumbo and Humba Wumba from ''BanjoKazooie''. The former (current page image) handled transforming the main characters into various creatures such as termites, alligators and even ''pumpkins'' in the first game. In the sequel, he was actually playable and used different spells to interact with the overworld, while [[MagicalNativeAmerican Humba Wumba]] took over the transformation business.

* ''DefenseOfTheAncientsAllStars'' and its remake has a hero called Witch doctor. He is a RedMage with a decent healing spell and a set of very powerful (but situational) high-damage spells.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' has the trolls who joined the orc Horde with Jamaican accents. The WitchDoctor unit is their healing caster who puts various wards on the ground, be it to spy on terrain, stun enemies, or gradually heal allies. The Shadow Hunter hero in the expansion goes further by turning his enemies into harmless critters, using serpent wards to attack and whose ultimate spell (Big Bad Voodoo) temporarily turns all units but him invulnerable.
