* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has [[spoiler:The Kingdom of Marley which resides beyond the three Walls; They practice systemic racism and exclusion against the people of Eldian descent (bonus points for the Jewish overtones of the Eldian culture and mythology), forcing them into conditions that heavily remind of the treatment of Jews during UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust, including using extensive propaganda to paint them as "descendants of the Devil", forcing them to live in ghettos and making them wear an Eldian bracelet with the Eldian sign. Interestingly, both Eldian and Marleyan characters have Germanic sounding names already]].

** Umbridge [[BitchInSheepsClothing hides it a bit better]] than the Death Eaters in her [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix first appearance]], but she's honestly no better than them. By the final book, she [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope sky dives off the slippery slope]] and starts holding a KangarooCourt to persecute Muggleborn Wizards.

** Another very obvious nod by Rowling to the Nazi association with Voldemort and Death Eaters comes from a book Hermione reads about Voldemort and the Dark Arts called ''The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts''. This is a nod to journalist William Shirer's seminal history of Nazi Germany, ''The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich''.

** 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. In those pamphlets, the Ministry openly bans Muggle-borns (wizards born to a non-magical parent) from going to Hogwarts, makes it a crime *not* to report on them, and explicitly describes their plan to send them [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust to camps]]. 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...
** Naturally, Grindelwald was defeated in 1945, of all years, and holed up in a prison called Nurmengard (which sounds like Nuremberg, and has the very "Arbeit macht frei"-like slogan, "For the Greater Good", carved over the gate). Fans have used this to speculate on [[{{Ghostapo}} whether Grindelwald actually had something to do with the rise of the Nazis themselves]]. Also, a lunatic, old loner as the last inmate of an incredibly guarded prison? That sounds like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Hess Rudolf Hess.]]

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has Academy City. Its leader, Aleister Crowley, believes that Espers are a SuperiorSpecies[=/=]MasterRace that deserve to replace and rule over normal humans, and advocates the Espers to butcher normal humans and [[AGodAmI develop complexes that makes them feel more than human and have the rights to lord over others]] by means of the Daihasei sports festival. In addition, the city lives extremely by [[TheSocialDarwinist social darwinism]], where Level 0's (normal humans) [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman are treated like they don't exist]] and are just given enough money to survive if they don't have a job whilst Level 3's, 4's and 5's are given multi-million dollar allowances, get massive discounts for anything they purchase, live in gated communities, and ride in buses capable of taking hits from anti-tank rockets. Furthermore, crimes committed against Level 0's by Espers are rarely reported, even covered up by city management, to the point where some Level 4's and all but one of the Level 5's could take out an entire neighborhood, stick the heads of the dead on pikes, and [[KarmaHoudini management would do]] ''[[KarmaHoudini nothing]]''.

* If you don't consider ''Film/TheTestamentOfDrMabuse'' to be the TropeMaker (see example below), then the trope maker is probably 1934 film ''Film/TheHouseOfRothschild''. In this story about the rise of the Rothschild family to success in the face of antisemitism in the early 19th century, the most viciously antisemitic character is Count Ledrantz, a German. And just to make the parallel more clear, Count Ledrantz organizes an antisemitic pogrom in Frankfurt, with Germans throwing rocks through the storefronts of Jewish businesses.

Of course, since the Nazis themselves stole symbolism, slogans, and rituals from other historical sources (and racism ''looooong'' predates their existence), much of what is associated with them today is actually far OlderThanTheyThink. So a few examples commonly given merely reflect generic totalitarian, cult-of-personality, and/or dictatorship elements. {{Anime}} will also borrow from UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan, for example the killing of surrendering soldiers, or attempts to stamp out culture. Further justification for this trope in more recent years has been the outlawing of Nazi swastikas and related imagery in Germany and other places, leading to the use of [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute similar-looking symbols]] that weren't previously associated with fascism.
