* 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.]]

** [[spoiler:Averted as the soldiers have little loyalty to Skunk, and more to Mera and Buppa/Bubba (depending on translation) - shown when Skunk orders his soldiers to fight the resisting Tribes who were not destroyed/amalgated into the Skunk Empire after Buppa/Bubba died. They tore their armbands off after receiving that command and moved against Skunk - and all the other Tribes did too. Also, they stopped fighting after hearing Buppa/Bubba died]].

* 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.

* TheFilmOfTheBook for ''Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}'' gave the Firemen Nazi-like outfits along with an overall fascistic feel to their system, and a German actor was cast as Montag. This is kind of at odds with the book which makes the dystopian society very "All-American" and rightly or wrongly, Creator/RayBradbury attributed its start to PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad, with the idea being that people will be much happier "protected" from "upsetting" ideas, something which is far from the Nazi motivation for burning books.

* ''ABC Series/AfterschoolSpecial'': A memorable 1983 installment, titled "The Wave," sees a high school history teacher conduct an unusual experiment to illustrate the chilling reality of the Holocaust and Nazi-ism by dividing his class into three social groups with strict rules stressing that an individual is part of something more important than himself. Things are fun and games at first, but eventually it becomes all too real as the lesson's unintended consequences turns the school into a regimental, regressive state of fascism and one of the groups becoming virtual Nazis. A German-language feature film inspired by this episode, "Die Welle" was produced in 2008.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' parodies this (among other things) in one module, where the hapless schmucks (Troubleshooters) become hapless ''smershoviks'' (Commie troubleshooters), in a FriendComputer-engineered experiment to see what all the fuss with Communism was all about. In this alternate Alpha Complex, the equivalent to the [[RedScare Commies]] are the "[=NazCIA=]", pronounced "Not-CIA", and a mix of the worst (read: cheesiest) [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi stereotypes]] melded with the worst (read: cheesiest) CIA stereotypes.

*** Religiously, the Thalmor play up the old [[{{Precursors}} Aldmeri]] religious belief that the creation of the mortal world was a cruel trick by a JerkassGod that robbed their divine ancestors of their pre-creation divinity. Said god, known to them as the Lorkhan, then specifically created the races of Men out of the "weakest souls" to spread Sithis (chaos) in to "every corner" of creation, ensuring that there could never again be the pure stasis of pre-creation. Thus, in order to [[OmnicidalManiac undo creation]], the must not only KillAllHumans, but kill ''[[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence the very idea of humanity]]''. In order to accomplish this, they must [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly wipe out the worship]] of Talos, a DeityOfHumanOrigin who was once the mortal man [[GodEmperor Tiber Septim]], possibly [[MergerOfSouls among others]], and who is possibly (in-part) the re-ascended form of Lorkhan. It's implied that they don't just hunt down, but also execute Talos worshippers outright.

* The Principality of Zeon and its successor movement Neo Zeon from the UC ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' timeline. The most famous instance is where [[TheEvilPrince Prince Gihren Zabi]] turns a state funeral into a political rally, with the audience shouting "Sieg Zeon!" ([[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=DZUt8BSs8Sw Hail Zeon]] in the dub). [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when King Degwin Zabi compares his son, Gihren, to Hitler and Gihren [[InsultBackfire accepts it as a complement]].

While the analogy had been in place since the series started, the [=1990s=] [=OVAs=] ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'' kicked it into overdrive by having Zeon start slapping German names on practically everything and using flags and banners that were literally just Nazi trappings with the Swastika replaced by their own emblem; the franchise has kept running with the theme and hasn't looked back since.

* [[DesignatedHero Protagonist]] example in ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn''. Starfleet believe themselves to be in many ways superior to other species in the multiverse, the winged unicorns have actually conquered parts of other realities and they teach in the militaristic force to always follow orders blindly or you will get socially shunned. Not to forget that they excuse murder by dehumanizing resp. deponyizing their enemies.
** Worse, the author admitted on multiple accounts that this is intentional. According to certain posts, he might not even know the significance of something like the Holocaust and thinks mass murder is okay. ([[FreudianExcuse He was apparently raised and taught by Holocaust deniers]], or so he claims.)

* The Death Eaters from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' believe in the superiority of [[WitchSpecies pure blood]], and will kill anyone they feel is inferior to them. Their leader, Voldemort, hates anyone not of pure wizard blood, yet he himself is not pure blood; UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler viewed "Aryans," commonly portrayed as blonds with blue eyes as the master race, yet he himself was brown haired with brown eyes, and there are (untrue) rumors about him having Jewish ancestry. Creator/JKRowling [[WordOfGod acknowledged]] the Death Eaters are supposed to represent the Nazis, though the American-produced [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire film adaptation]] of ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'' played with the parallel a bit by having the Death Eaters don costumes resembling [[UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan black Klansmen's robes]].

* The [[ClassicalVampireMovie Carpathian vampires]] in ''ComicBook/AmericanVampire'' consider themselves superior to not just humans, but also all other vampire bloodlines and its revealed that during the 1700s, they engaged in a genocidal campaign to exterminate them and were just barely stopped by the [[AncientOrderOfProtectors Vassals of the Morning Star]] from taking over the world. Its no wonder that by the time of World War II, they actually sided with the Nazis since they shared their MasterRace beliefs.
