* In one episode of ''[[{{WesternAnimation/Recess}} Recess]]'', a particularly nasty villain, Dr. Slicer, is clearly meant to look like Heinrich Himmler, albeit [[{{Bald of Evil}} bald]]. Seriously, he scares even TJ.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[spoiler:Zamoran]] Government from ''Webcomic/LighterThanHeir''. The similarities include being forbidden from holding a military after losing a war with a neighbor country, being resentful with said neighbor, building up a formidable military in secrecy, performing grisly human experiments on unwilling victims in secret laboratories, being obsessed with genetic "superiority", launching surprise attacks without warning, and massacring entire cities. Even their banner looks similar to the one used by Nazi Germany.

*** To be fair, Edgars was not in favor of exterminating the telepaths, just bringing them down to a level playing field with the rest of humanity via coercion and control, as evidenced by his creating the antidote to the virus which he alone had access to. Though far from anything considered [[IveComeTooFar morally righteous]], he's no genocidal maniac.

* The human-supremacist groups that crop up in the ''Literature/GarrettPI'' novels after the Cantard War's end have this flavor. Ironically, they're referred to in-Verse as "human rights" groups, with the implication that ''only'' humans should have legal rights in Karenta.

** While we don't know what he did in particular, Chin [[WrittenByTheWinners the Conqueror/the Great]] is a serious contender for Bonapartism, as seen in the episode Avatar Day.

** While we don't know what he did in particular, Chin [[WrittenByTheWinners the Conqueror/the Great]] is a serious contender for Bonapartism, as seen in the episode Avatar Day. Though he is far more obviously a rather blatant {{expy}} of [[UsefulNotes/QinShiHuangdi the First Emperor of China]], whose ''name'' he also shares.

A subtrope of FictionalPoliticalParty and DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything. Compare with PuttingOnTheReich, ScaryDogmaticAliens, and SpaceJews. Compare and contrast with GratuitousNazis, where actual Nazis are used (where one wouldn't expect to find them) just to have some villains that can be instantly identified as evil. Visit the scenic {{Reichstropen}} for more about ThoseWackyNazis and their imitators. For empire builders who consider themselves inherently superior to all other races/nations but don't necessarily partake of other Nazi ideology or imagery, see MasterRace. And if they're PlayedForLaughs, that's AdolfHitlarious.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'' has the Eastern Alliance on planet Terra (surprisingly, an aversion to the PlanetTerra trope in that it's not Earth), which serves as a fusion of sorts between Nazi Germany and Soviet Union. The uniforms appear to include elements of both, as well as their attitude towards others. They view the Western Coalition (the democratic bloc) as inferiors and are perfectly willing to make peace with them and then attack (DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything). When launching their nukes, the Commandant even tells his subordinates to only put the most "critical and loyal" citizens into bomb shelters, citing the projected casualties from the Western Coalition's nuclear retaliation as "acceptable".

From 1933 to 1945, [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Germany]] was ruled with an iron fist by UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and his [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi Party]]. They eventually used RefugeInAudacity to execute millions of people they found undesirable, with about half (using the 12 million death figure) being Jews, the rest being various other groups that often got picked on in Europe: communists, Roma, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the mentally ill, disabled people, Slavs, etc. The Nazis also helped start [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the most destructive war in human history]], which killed even more people (estimates range from 40 to 80 million, based on what you include. Typically reported as the midpoint 60) Under Nazi control, the German military committed widespread atrocities across Europe, from soldiers partaking in looting, burning and killing civilians throughout occupied territory, to pilots strafing crowds of fleeing refugees. The result is that they are considered by Western culture to be one of the most evil groups of people that ever lived, and therefore [[AcceptablePoliticalTargets easy and acceptable to make look bad]].

* In Literature/NineteenEightyFour The Party INGSOC is ''very'' Nazi-like. It kills and/or kidnaps any dissidents, tirelessly releases propaganda, is discriminant towards the populace and is constantly at war. [[spoiler:O'Brien]] even notes in his GrandInquisitorSpeech that the Nazis and the Stalinists came closest to what the Party is trying to achieve.

* The {{Animesque}} web-series {{WebAnimation/RWBY}} has Adam Taurus. Adam's entreaty to Sienna Khan consists of him declaring the Faunus to be a superior race, better than humans in every way, and stating that humanity should be made to serve the Faunus instead of simply respecting them. In Volume 5, his clothing is changed from a black and red asian-themed suit to a [[PuttingOnTheReich militarised grey suit]] that resembles a Nazi uniform. He has built a cult of personality around himself that he uses to inflame and radicalise Faunus against humanity. [[spoiler:In a scene reminiscent of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichstag_fire Reichstag Fire]], he murders Sienna Khan with the intention of fabricating a story about her being murdered by humans to cement his authority as the new leader and deliberately radicalise the White Fang against humanity.]]
