Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheNewOrderLastDaysOfEurope'' features Trofim Lysenko, a technocratic ruler of Magnitogorsk. A historical person known for his pseudoscientific beliefs and ardent support of [[LamarckWasRight Lamarckist]] interpretations that living organisms inherit the acquired traits of their forebears and that plants can acquire desirable traits if they grow under extreme duress, he came to the "realization" that this can apply to humans, too, and to promote the desirable traits is necessary for mankind's benefit. In an abandoned city of Magnitogorsk, Lysenko set up a massive system of "experimental chambers", where kidnapped people are subjected to torture in his futile attempts to confirm those theories and turn prisoners into Super Soldiers that will help him to liberate the wartorn Russia from Nazi Germans and warlords.

Added DiffLines:

* For a stretch of ''Film/TheFly1986'', Seth Brundle becomes this. After successfully teleporting himself through space via his telepods, Seth has remarkably enhanced strength, stamina, virility, etc. He believes this to be a wonderful unintentional result of the teleportation process, and that anyone else who uses the teleporter will become a superperson. Thus he starts pressuring his lover Veronica to be teleported -- "And I won't wear you out; we'll be the perfect couple! The Dynamic Duo!" When she objects -- both due to her nervousness about the process ''and'' the stranger changes she's seeing in him, such as odd hairs growing out of a wound on his back, a pronounced SweetTooth, and his less-{{Adorkable}} personality -- he is furious, declares her a coward, and sets out to find "someone who'll keep up with me", leading to a tryst with another woman. Only Veronica's timely arrival at the loft stops him from forcibly teleporting her. Shortly after this he comes to realize what's ''actually'' happening to him -- a fly was in the teleporter when he made his fateful trip and he was genetically fused with it. He is slowly becoming a hideous HalfHumanHybrid of human and insect; all of the "improvements" are a result of this and the [[BodyHorror downside is just beginning to show]]. This realization smashes this trope and his ego to pieces.

Added DiffLines:

* Cyrus Jakoby in ''[[Literature/JoeLedger Dragon Factory]]'' plans to purify humanity of all "inferior" races through genetically-modified diseases -- but he also creates a race of perfect slaves to toil for the remaining few. Not surprising since in reality he's [[spoiler: Mengele himself]].


* According to ''Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'', 1000 years from now Ra's Al Ghul will plot to crash the Moon into the Earth to force humanity to [[YouFailBiologyForever pre-emptively evolve]] to prevent it.

** [[FanNickname FABULOUS Bile]]... uh, sorry, Fabius Bile. And like most things in that universe, he is this trope turned up to eleven. His master race are superpowered versions of the existing SuperSoldiers, with the difference that they're all homicidal megalomaniacs, and he's turned the population of entire planets into shambling mutants with his experiments. Oh, and did we mention that his labcoat is sewn from human skin? His most ambitious project? [[spoiler:To clone the Emperor.]]

* Professor Hojo from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' was almost a textbook Evilutionary Biologist, and a thoroughly nasty piece of work.
* He was predated however, by ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'''s Dr Lugae, who was every bit as bad, even if he had less screentime.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'': Dr Lugae, the original EvilutionaryBiologist and MadScientist featured in the series.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'':
Professor Hojo from embodies every trope associated to Evilutionary Biologists and Mad Scientists. A thoroughly nasty piece of work, he's pretty much responsible for all the tragedies and deaths in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' was almost and its spinoffs.
** One of those serving Zenos yae Galvus in the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' expansion ''Stormblood'' is the Garlean scientist Aulus mal Asina. Asina views the Empire's {{Magitek}} weaponry as "an extrinsic solution to an intrinsic problem," namely the Garlen race's [[UnSorcerer complete inability to use magic]]. With Zenos' personal endorsement, Asina has performed hundreds of human experiments to "correct" that issue and bestow magic powers on those who were not born with the ability, or further the power of one who could use magic to begin with.
** VideoGame/FinalFantasyBraveExvius'': Dr Lazarov is
a textbook Evilutionary Biologist, twisted, amoral, unethical, inhuman, raving lunatic with a depraved personality and a thoroughly nasty piece sociopathic disregard for human life. An ImortalitySeeker that will not stop at anything to accomplish his goal, there's no line he will not cross. Lazarov pretty much admits the only reason he's working for the Six Sworn of work.

Paladia is because the war they wage will leave a nice amount of fresh corpses on its wake. Fresh corpses he had less screentime.will put to good use.
