This looks more like Fan Wank than anything actually in the game:

  • Combat-oriented clerics in Dungeons & Dragons. One can just imagine a death effect spell being the cleric carefully and precisely snipping off a few selected blood vessels in the target's brain.

There are many listed 'examples' where the medic qualities are completely unrelated to their fighting or killing. I believe they should go under combat medic.

I agree. A lot of these examples are Combat Medic or Mad Doctor. I would suggest changing the name of this trope to something more specific. Maybe "Warrior Physician" in the vein of Warrior Poet and Warrior Therapist.

I don't like the image on this page. Not sinister enough and frankly seems like a lame excuse to show a sexy anime babe.

The Doctor from Doctor Who seems to fit this perfectly, while he doesnt NORMALLY kill people, he has no problem killing emotionless cryborgs or a few others, also apparently he killed a lot of people in his past

Except that he's not a doctor, medical or otherwise. It's the name he takes, and his "I solve problems" attitude fits the name, but that's not this trope. Also, he very rarely 'fights' in any conventional way, and certainly not with any particular medical motif.

To clarify, this is a trope about "someone who fights with a medical motif".

  • The Hippocratic oath is not actually required, nor is it legally binding. The licensing board will have their own standards of conduct, often quite different from the Hippocratic Oath. Furthermore, the "do no harm" line is NOT actually in the oath. That in mind, I say we remove the section header which includes that.

OK, sure.

You don't really need to ask permission for minor fixes like this you know.
