Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CarnEvil'': Ludwig von Tökkentäkker, the carnival's ringmaster, is very obviously German, from his name to his exaggerated accent to his GratuitousGerman. He's also a professor, though it's unclear exactly what he's a professor of. However, he does enjoy turning people into [[BodyHorror twisted carnival freaks]].

Added DiffLines:

** It turns out he's only german in Gosaku Outa's continuity of Mazinger Z. In the main continuity created by Go Nagai, Dr. Hell is, in fact, japanese.


* ''ComicBook/WonderWoman1942'': Paula von Gunther was an Austrian scientist who worked for the Nazis when they held her daughter Gerta captive after killing her husband for her initial refusal, but switched sides as soon as Gerta was safe. She helped improve the Amazon's purple healing ray and invented a teleporter among other things once she was working against the Nazis.

* Princess Bubblegum from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' isn't known to be of German descent, but she's a firmly-established scientist, and although primarily speaking English, she's very much fluent in German.
-->"Ich bin hier, Finn."\\
"It's me! Der princess?"\\
"Ich bin so glücklich, ich könnte, ich könnte-..."\\
"Auf wiedersehen!"\\
"Ach, mein Glöb!"


* ''Literature/TheCrewOfTheCopperColoredCupids''{{'}}s AbsentMindedProfessor and inventor-of-everything, Doctor Sigma, speaks in a comedy Austrian FunetikAksent reminiscent of [[Series/WaltDisneyPresents Paul Freesí Ludwig von Drake]]. ''Why'' this is the case remains somewhat obscure in light of the fact that he is in fact a robot, who was, as far as anybody knows, built and programmed by the same inventor as all the other Mark 1 Clockwork Cherubs. Maybe he just does it [[RuleOfFunny because it's funny]].

* Eric VideoGame/{{Crack}} is said he's Germanician (probbably Austiran) of his South Korean origin.

Added DiffLines:

* At the end of an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'', Dagget ends up swimming in a lake full of chemicals that make him [[SuperIntelligence super intelligent]], [[MyBrainIsBig complete with a swollen head]]. He becomes a scientist and speaks with a German accent afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968'' has a brief reference to a Dr. Otto Hasslein, implied to be one of the astrophysicists involved in the rocket launch program. In the third film in the series, ''Film/EscapeFromThePlanetOfTheApes'', we finally meet Dr. Hasslein, and although he looks too young to have been part of Operation Paperclip, his accent - as well as his behaviour - are [[ANaziByAnyOtherName more than a little Nazi-ish]], and he gradually becomes the villain of the movie.

Added DiffLines:

* Professor Littleoldman(emphasis on the "[[CoolOldGuy old]]"), Dr. Richard Thorndyke's old tutor in ''Film/HighAnxiety''. German, elderly, and a shrew psychiatrist. Also comes across as SophisticatedAsHell, since his response to Thorndyke giving a feeble excuse not to seek help with his titular anxiety is to bluntly shout "[[PrecisionFStrike Bullshit]]!"

Added DiffLines:

* Kharnov von Kripplor from ''ComicBook/DangerGirl'' is a German MadScientist working for a Nazi terrorist organization.


* Drs. Gottlieb and Geizler, the Kaiju-researching duo from ''Film/PacificRim'', were both born in Germany if not raised there.

* Drs. Gottlieb and Geizler, the Kaiju-researching duo from ''Film/PacificRim'', were both born in Germany if not though raised there.in England and America respectively, leading to no such German accent.


* Sasha Nein from VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}, of German (or possibly Austrian) descent. He mainly stays in his lab, and performs psychic experiments that can sometimes scare the Whispering Rock campers. He's a pretty benign case, being unwilling to continue experiments if they threaten to harm the kids, and his MadScientist tendencies often take a backseat to the superspy elements of his personality.

* Megabyte's mad scientist henchman in ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' is always called ''literally'' named "Herr Doctor."" He's also the only [[{{Mook}}s viral binome]] in the entire series to remain [[UndyingLoyalty completely and consistently loyal to Megabyte of his own free will]], and thus Megabyte [[VillainousFriendship actually seems to like him]]: he's thus far the only character to ever get a ride in Megabyte's [[CoolCar lavish limousine]].
