** The Nazi ''Wunderwaffen'' are briefly mentioned, with Hitler promising Ritter von Greim a thousand jet fighters within short notice. Greim replies that he had no idea they had so many reserves available.

But by that stage they were running out of pilots and, worse, running out of jet fuel.[[/note]]

** In the uncut version, one of the bunker staff eagerly asks Keitel when Hitler is going to use those wonder weapons. Keitel, clearly aware there are no such weapons, says that all details are classified.

* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: Near the end of the film Magda Goebbels drugs her children and then poisons them with cyanide capsules, which are shown to have a very quick effect; the children whimper and go limp practically a second after the capsule is cracked. In reality, death by cyanide - or really ''any'' poison administered orally - takes rather longer than a second or two, and as mentioned below, the children would have thrashed around before dying. [[note]]This is most likely to avoid the fact that, even with InfantImmortality being averted, watching a young child's agonized death throes would probably be too much for an audience to bear - as well as the fact that obtaining a convincing performance of painful, drawn-out death from a child actor would run the risk of falling into serious {{Narm}}.

You most likely know it as the source of all those WebVideo/HitlerRants videos where the [[GagSub English subtitles are edited]] to satirize some usually trivial topics. The scene that is used for the Hitler Rants is actually a Hitler freakout that occurs after he learns that neither Wenck's 12th Army nor Army Group Steiner would be coming to the defense of Berlin (in RealLife, both forces were trying only to get West so they could surrender to the Western Allies).

Allies, with Wenck's force in particular trying to evacuate as many civilians as they could from the vengeful Red Army).
