* ''Film/TronLegacy'' has CLU, a digital double of programmer Kevin Flynn who was created to help develop the perfect system. Unfortunately, CLU's idea of perfection wound up being outdated. For the sake of his "perfect system" he not only turned on his programmer, but also began gathering an army of "re-purposed" programs ([[spoiler:including Tron himself]]), wiped out a newly discovered race of ISOs ([[spoiler:save one survivor named Quorra]]), and tossing any programs who didn't meet his standards into games in which loss means de-resolution (which is program-ish for "death", in case you were wondering). His ultimate goal was to escape into the world outside the Grid, the real world, and destroy everything "imperfect" to make way for his perfect system.

** And that's not even getting into the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows ''seventh'' book]], for most of which the PowerTrio are on the run in one of the most blatant parallels of Nazi-occupied Europe ever seen. The Ministry of Magic has become so corrupted from the inside by LesCollaborateurs, that they essentially pass the Nuremberg Laws against Muggle-born wizards, and under the guidance of Umbridge are shown creating pamphlets touting purity of blood whose content and saccharine covers call to mind the publications of Julius Streicher. The various Death Eater minions inside the Ministry are dressed in khaki clothes, with red, white, and black armbands bearing the Dark Mark. The sign of [[spoiler: the Deathly Hallows]] has a history very similar to that of the swastika, as well - originally an innocent symbol, then used by wizard-supremacist Grindelwald, etched on walls by stupid pricks to get attention...

* In ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' The Party INGSOC is very Nazi like. It kills and/or kidnap any dissidents, tirelessly releases propaganda, is discriminant towards the populace and is at war.

* Amestris, the country in which ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' takes place (probably the best anime example of this trope), is a military nation where the standard -- or you might say, the ''preferred'' look is blonde hair and blue eyes, ruled by a "Führer" who in the past sought to exterminate an ethnic group living within the borders, distinguishable by their facial features and monotheistic religion. Amestris is, however, rather more like post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Germany, what with the aforementioned "Ishval Civil War" having been a horrible PR catastrophe and most modern Amestrians behaving extremely apologetically towards surviving Ishvalans. The leader who initiated the genocide is somehow still seated in power and continues to uphold a destructive Lebensraum policy, [[spoiler:but it helps when you're a superpowered ArtificialHuman backed by a truly ancient and sinister GovernmentConspiracy]]. This is a somewhat unusual example in that Amestris is mainly [[WordOfGod inspired by industrial revolution era Britain, and the Ishvalans are based on the Ainu people]], but it manages to look like a parallel to Nazi Germany anyway.



* Britannia from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' combine Naziism with the British Empire, with a society built around notions of [[TheSocialDarwinist Social Darwinism]]. They refer to conquered non-Britannian people by a [[AirstripOne numbered designation]] ("Elevens" instead of Japanese) and are not hesitant to massacre entire ghettos in order to fulfill their aims. They also pull off the political rally with Charles Di Britannia turning Clovis' funeral into a political rally complete with ''All Hail Britannia'' chants. It also borrows from Japan itself, with the Numbers being a reference to the Japanization that happened after Japan began expanding its borders. There is a Purist Faction and what they stand for (i.e. Blood Purity and Pollution theories). At one point, Euphie is convinced to overlook an apparently talented painter's work due to his having a smidgeon of Eleven blood.

The uniform style is notably absent, particularly considering how it's used so much in anime ''without'' trying to evoke this trope.

* The web serial {{Literature/Worm}} has ''two'' such organizations. The Empire 88 (with the 88 standing for "HH" or "Heil Hitler") employs neo Nazi beliefs with the superiority of the White (rather than Aryan) race run by a man who styles himself Kaiser. Gelleshaft however is far more sinister, a Nazi inspired group that has its home base in Germany. They are not shy about exerting their influence or lending superhumans to others in order to further the cause.

** The Dogs' Guild in ''Discworld/MenAtArms''. Their entry in ''{{GURPS}} Discworld'' notes that if Big Fido had been human "the Discworld might have been in serious trouble, possibly involving jackboots", and certainly the image of an insane poodle insisting "the proper shape for a dog was a lot bigger" calls to mind a short, dark-haired man going on about Nordic perfection. According to ''The Discworld Companion'', his speeches even included the phrase "the Master race" ... only this was humanity, which caninekind was going to overthrow.

* In ''Literature/ItCantHappenHere'', the Windrip regime is lead by a charismatic dictator and characterized by racism, jingoism, vicious suppression of dissent, concentration camps, and foolish wars of conquest. To boot, the Corpo Youth is reminiscent of the Hitler Youth. Especially jarring is the fact that the novel was published in 1935, shortly after the Nazis came into power. Creator/SinclairLewis' satire proved prescient about the horrors of Nazism, but was unappreciated in its own time for a plot that contemporary critics found improbable, which is to say, they didn't think ''Literature/ItCantHappenHere'' could happen there.

* T. H. White's ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing'' has a Hitler analogue in the person of Mordred, who leads the Nazi-like Thrashers. An ant colony, which Myth/{{Merl|in}}yn takes Myth/KingArthur to visit into using magic, stands in more for fascism generally. The ant society's suppression of individuality is a strong allegory for the totalitarian state. In the postlude ''Literature/TheBookOfMerlyn'', White, through his AuthorAvatar of Merlyn, stands up in favor of {{anarchy}} and what he calls the collectivist philosophies of fascism, communism and capitalism.

* Since ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' likes to take things UpToEleven, its [[TheEmpire Imperium of Man]] is a mash-up of all kinds of totalitarian nightmares. There's Nazi elements in its militaristic authoritarianism, [[GodEmperor leader worship]], obsession with racial purity (mutants are hunted down and exterminated, because they tend to worship Chaos), [[TankGoodness awesome tanks]] and [[PuttingOnTheReich spiffy uniforms]]. But there's also shades of the Soviet Union in the Imperium's bloated bureaucracy and use of {{commissar}}s, as well as the [[ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock Termight Empire]] thanks to an Inquisition serving as secret police.

*** One of the last missions in ''Shadow Fall'' has the player controlling a Helghast [[spoiler: trying to prevent a war, with a rouge ISA general planning to use the war to wipe out the Helghast completely.]] ''Mercenary'' had the player taking missions from both sides with some Helghast being sympathetic and some ISA being racist. Honestly the main reason the Helghast are considered Nazi-like is their [[PuttingOnTheReich look]], [[TheDogBitesBack aggressiveness]] and their leaders going on about purity. With those aside the ISA and the Helghast are NotSoDifferent.

* The Movement from ''PsiOps'' fits this trope. The meat puppets (basic irreversibly mind-wiped and rewritten soldiers) even have a red armband with the movement symbol on it and jackboots. What really cements it is their belief that psions should rule over the normal humans and the fact that the leader of it all is a general who staged a failed coup who really isn't a psion [[spoiler: until he gets the artefacts he needs.]] For irony points the main character is blonde and blue eyed and none of the bosses are.

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' does this to both sides.

His {{archenemy}}, Muruta [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Azrael]], is a smooth-talking {{blond|GuysAreEvil}} [[TheSociopath psychopath]] who runs Blue Cosmos, an anti-Coordinator political party and lobby group that is equal parts Nazi Party and Ku Klux Klan cell, and seeks to use [[NukeEm nuclear weapons]] to [[FinalSolution destroy the colonies and kill all the Coordinators]] because they are "unnatural." As both sides become more and more Naziesque, the sympathetic characters on both eventually defect, forming the Three Ships' Alliance.
