Whenever a female protagonist has to consult with or bring in an expert on some obscure and/or technical subject, said expert will invariably turn out to be socially awkward and generally unattractive, but [[AbhorrentAdmirer clearly smitten with her]]. A Horny Scientist is not, as a rule, sexually aggressive, and may in fact turn out to be [[{{Adorkable}} strangely endearing]] in [[UglyCute his]] [[GeekyTurnOn own]] [[GiveGeeksAChance geeky]] [[NerdsAreSexy way]], but rarely actually becomes even a TemporaryLoveInterest.

Note, if this is a horny ''MadScientist'', expect their creations to be somewhat... Freudian at the very least.

In contrast, a male protagonist will get a HotScientist.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop The Movie'' has one, who makes Elektra agree to go on a date with him in exchange for testing her blood for the MacGuffin.
* A female example appears in Manga/DefenseDevil, who never stop flirting and showing off in very {{Stripperiffic}} outfits whenever the male protagonist comes to her for help.
* There are two in the Black Order's Asian Branch in ''Manga/DGrayMan'': Director Bak Chang, who has the hots for Lenalee and stalks her, and minor character Rohfa, who is quite infatuated with Allen.
* Shinra Kishitani from ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}''. Unlike most examples, [[CuteMonsterGirl Celty]] actually has to live with him and he wishes that it would stop being just InnocentCohabitation (having gotten a crush on her since he was 4, long story). Still, there's some mutual feelings between them and he's far more attractive than the usual example.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Shiho, the cryptographer with an instant crush on Shikamaru counts more as this trope than HotScientist, though she is kind of adorable in a mousy, nerdy way.
* ''Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo'''s Nene Todoroki is a RareFemaleExample; she is portrayed in a continuous state of arousal given the fact that she seem to always have a dildo sticking up her nether regions, although she hides it well.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* Gina Diggers from ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' is very much an embodiment of this trope. Her libido has [[CharacterDevelopment calmed down a bit over time]], but she and her [[CloningBlues clone half sister Brianna]] both have plenty of moments that highlight just how huge their Libido's are.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Agent J in ''Film/MenInBlack'' mistook a medical examiner for a horny scientist when she was actually nervous (and trying to clue him in on an alien hiding under the table, which he took as {{double entendre}}s).
* Subverted in the first ''Series/CharliesAngels'' film. The socially inept Horny Scientist Sam Rockwell smitten with Dylan Sanders [[spoiler:turns out to be the BigBad using the girls to get to Charlie.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* In ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', Clarice Starling has to deal with two of them at once - and, if you believe the book and the last few scenes of the movie, ends up dating one of them.
* In ''City Of The Dead'' one of the Doctors has sex with {{zombie|Apocalypse}}s. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint He's not really an assistant, though, so it might not count.]]
* Literature/KateDaniels has to deal with Saiman's efforts to bed her whenever she needs his assistance.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* In several episodes of ''Series/StargateSG1'', Samantha Carter deals with the irritating, HornyScientist Rodney [=McKay=] (who was [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular enough]] with audience and the writers that he became a main character on ''Series/StargateAtlantis''). Rodney appears to have the hots for Colonel Carter, considering that he styled his country's ruler in "The Game" on her.
** One wonders if this is to be swept under the rug now that the [[PortmanteauCoupleName McKeller]] 'ship has set sail...
** And then there was Dr. Felger, who not only had a crush on Sam, but idolized SG-1 to the point that he would risk his life to try to impress them by "saving" them after SG-1 was captured by a minor System Lord.
* ''Series/TruCalling'' used one as a main character (in fact, it seems a large percentage of them are medical examiners or pathologists, which may or may not add a layer of {{Squick}} once the FridgeLogic kicks in).
* Scully on ''Series/TheXFiles'' had two of these, Agent Pendrell and Frohike of the Lone Gunmen.
** Frohike, while fitting this trope in the first couple of seasons, continued hitting on Scully afterwards because he found it amusing. See "Three of a Kind."
** Rocky the entomologist from "Lord of the Flies", who is so smitten with Scully that it leads to this lovely conversation:
---> '''Rocky''': You know, when a male and female calliphorid fly mate they stay joined for
---> up to one and a half hours. One and a half, doctor.
---> '''Scully''': You know, Rocky ... I'm a mother.
---> '''Rocky''': Mothers are women, too.
* Richard Sanders made a guest appearance on ''Series/DesigningWomen'' as a scientist with the hots for Charlene.
* ''Series/MurphyBrown'' went out with a brilliant physicist she had interviewed. She expected a quiet evening of stimulating conversation, but found herself accosted by an obnoxious, lecherous CasanovaWannabe.
* An expert consulted in several sketches of ''Radio/RoyalCanadianAirFarce'' is Professor Ick, an unattractive and horny female scientist. She constantly flirts with the interviewers and her explanations always become sexual, usually with pelvic thrusts and moans. She sometimes has a male colleague, who tends to act the same way.
* One episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' has an FBIAgent played by ElizaDushku interview Leonard, only for her to get annoyed since [[AllMenArePerverts he's only interested in hitting on her]]. [[LovableSexManiac Howard]] usually fulfills this role, however.
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' included one without a female protagonist to focus on. Gaius Baltar is characterized as a brilliant scientist who aspires to having "hot and cold running interns".

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* One of the possible team acquisitions in the {{R|olePlayingGame}}PG game ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' is scientist [[http://www.gamebanshee.com/fallout2/talkingheads/myron.php Myron]]. He is definitely horny. And sleazy.
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has Dr. Dala in the Old World Blues DLC. Her and the other doctors each became a BrainInAJar so they could continue doing [[ForScience SCIENCE!!!]] after their bodies died. Dr. Dala is the only female among the five, and it's been so long since she last had sex (or for that matter, any sensations involving physical touch,) that if the player has the Lady Killer perk, they can bring Dr. Dala to mental climax just by ''talking and breathing'' to her.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* Despite no one ever needing to consult with him, Tedd from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is clearly a HornyScientist, albeit a successful one - [[spoiler:he and Grace have one of the longest-running relationships in the story.]] Dr. Germahn from the Q&A strips is also this, doing stuff like creating potions that [[TheNudifier will make sweat dissolve clothes]].
* Dr. Schlock of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' can be quite the perv. Strangely, even though his specialty is inflatable technology, we've never seen him let's say, combine work and play. Given his lack of skill with genetics, he presumably succeeded at some point, since [[spoiler:4-U City's Rammer is his son.]]
* Dr. Disaster from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' [[spoiler:is this towards Jones.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Douglas and Adam from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', perhaps in a ShoutOut to most of the male fans of the show.
* Female example: [=DNAmy=] from ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''.
* Sheldon of ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' loves [[RobotGirl Jenny]]. [[StalkerWithACrush LOVES]] her.
