* Referenced and lampshaded in HarryPotter fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Returning}}'' with the canon example of the Death Eaters. Lyra bluntly refers to them as “wizard nazis.”

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' does this to both sides. ZAFT shares Zeon/Germany's [[PuttingOnTheReich look]], and their leader, [[GeneralRipper Patrick Zala]], is essentially a more sympathetic {{expy}} of Gihren, who believes that [[GattacaBabies Coordinators]] are a SuperiorSpecies[=/=]MasterRace that deserves to replace the [[PunyEarthlings Naturals]], and advocates the butchering of surrendering troops and the eventual [[EarthShatteringKaboom destruction of the Earth]] (he and his supporters live in space colonies) by WaveMotionGun. 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.

* The Freedom Party from Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Literature/{{Timeline 191}}'' series are the AlternateUniverse CSA-version of the Nazis, with Jake Featherston standing in for Hitler, and mass murder of blacks replacing the Holocaust.
** Inverted in the same author's novel length version of ''In the Presence of Mine Enemies'', where the "Nazi" leaders are Gorbachev and Yeltsin in brown shirts.
** In ''The Case of the Toxic Spell Dump'', Turtledove has backstory allusions to a "Leader" of the "[[IstanbulNotConstantinople Allemans]]", who set off the Second Sorcerous War.

** However, the political and military actions taken by Zeon "liberating" other colonies from the Earth Federation are more akin to Imperial Japan's actions of "liberating" Asian nations from Western influence.

** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' takes this even further, with [[TheRemnant the First Order]], the Empire's successor organization established by Imperial officers that refused to recognize the New Republic. They wave red-and-black banners, and they take after the SS, whereas the Empire took after the ''Wehrmacht''. WordOfGod has compared them to [[ArgentinaIsNaziLand Nazis who fled to South America after WWII]].

** Ironically, a great deal of their more outright disturbing aspects come from where they BREAK with Nazi doctrine. You see, the Nazis had blind spots that the well-connected and cunning could take advantage of. They did not immediately kill every undesirable, and indeed many of their grotesquely corrupt members actually saved the lives of these unfortunates by blackmailing them for virtually anything they had. If they just didn't kill them anyway. This is where the Black Lance is even more terrifying, because the Black Lance does NOT discriminate, it does not wait, it does not accept bribes, and is very, VERY effective because [[KnightsTemplar they believe that the fate of the human race depends upon]] [[InferredHolocaust purging it of such "impurities" and subjecting what is left to massive continual warfare as a case of very drastic "survival of the Fittest" evolution]]. Which in many ways makes them even WORSE because they do not kid around.

* ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'': Skynet and the machines' rule are pretty much the future version of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany. In the [[Film/{{Terminator}} first film]], Kyle Reese has a barcode tattoo that is similar in vein to the barcode tattoos for Nazi concentration camps, and in ''[[Film/TerminatorSalvation Salvation]]'', Kyle Reese and several other humans are being placed in what is unmistakably an extermination camp.

* Creator/SMStirling has stated that his goal in creating Literature/TheDraka was to imagine a Nazi-like country that actually [[TheBadGuyWins knew what it was doing]]. The Draka are like the Nazis but DarkerAndEdgier. In fact, the first novel of the Draka tetralogy is set in the opening hours of [[EvilVersusEvil a war between the Draka and Nazi Germany]], which eventually leads to the [[CurbstompBattle fall of Europe]].

* ''Die Spinne'' in ''CrimsonSkies.'' 1. They're German; 2. They're Fascists; 3. The game series is set in the thirties. It looks like somebody wasn't really trying to hide the obvious here.

* VideoGame/{Piratez}: Taken to a comical extent with the Humanist faction, a human-supremacist group that holds mutant pogroms, dresses in what looks like Nazi uniforms, inexplicably wields World War II-era German weaponry, and flies ships shaped like ''giant swastikas''.
