* Kreia from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'' provides us with a Cliff Notes version of some part of Nietzsche's philosophy every time she opens her mouth. Just replace 'God' with 'The Force' and 'Jedi/Sith' with 'priest', and Kreia basically becomes an {{Ubermensch}}, or (even more likely) she fills the role of Nietzsche trying to mold the main character into one.

* ''The Birth of Tragedy'' (1872): Nietzsche's first book, it deals with the philosophy of art and many other things. Nietzsche critiques Creator/{{Socrates}} for killing Greek {{Tragedy}} by demanding that the search for truth take primacy over art, resulting in a society that hates the creative and loves death, with the prospect of starting off a new Renaissance of tragedy through {{Opera}}, particularly Creator/RichardWagner's. He presents as his solution the concept of a "music-making Socrates", who embraces art even as he philosophizes.

* BerserkButton: Yeah, don't insult the Jews around Nietzsche. Despite what his MisaimedFandom would have you believe ([[ThoseWackyNazis and there]] [[StrawNihilist are many]]) he'd rip German anti-Semites apart if they neglected the contributions of Jewish culture and philosophy to Europe. [[ProudScholarRaceGuy Well, rip them apart rhetorically anyway.]]

* If you know what to look for, you can sometimes spot alterations of the book titles in ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' novels. There's no philosophical and/or thematic connection but apparently, at least one author is a Nietzsche fan.

** It should be noted that while Nietzsche focused most of his attention on "slave morality", his writings imply that he didn't think particularly highly of its inversion - e.g., "master morality" - either. His writing indicates that he intends the Overman to transcend traditional notions of right and wrong, and if the Overman were to represent a mere return to master morality, he wouldn't be a transcendent figure; he would simply be a reactionary. BlueAndOrangeMorality below presents a possible interpretation of Nietzsche's intended system of ethics - creation is good, and destruction or stagnation is evil - but Nietzsche seems to have intended to write a tetralogy on ethics, and because he never actually finished it, it's not fully clear what his intended meaning was; it has been the subject of debate among academics for centuries and will likely never be settled.
