Igor
Dimensioned collection of illustrations of Igor in a range of postures from standing upright to hunched and walking

Igor is a generic hunchbacked henchman trope character that appears in a variety of films as a servant to the main antagonist. The very first appearance of an Igor character was in the 1927 film Metropolis, though the character is never named or credited. The next, and most notable, appearance of Igor was in the 1931 film Frankenstein. However, the character’s name was actually Fritz and in Mary Shelley’s original novel Frankenstein did not have an assistant. Despite the inconsistencies in the actual names of the henchmen or their roles, the name Igor, or stylized as Ygor, appears to be the default nickname for all horror assistants.

Igor, portrayed by Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein (1974), is 5 foot 7 inches (1.70 m) tall.
