* In Creator/GrantMorrison's penultimate arc of ''New Comicbook/XMen, Planet X,'' [[RefugeeFromTime Holocaust survivor]] SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} goes more and more mindlessly berserk as the arc wears on, culminating in his beginning to herd all surviving non-mutants in New York into crematoria. One of his servants even points out that he's acting like a Nazi. This caused a bit of fan outcry, and Marvel execs were so horrified that they [[AuthorsSavingThrow immediately said that wasn't Magneto.]] This is [[OlderThanTheyThink hardly the first time]] Magneto has been compared to the Nazis, nor the first instance of someone pointing it out to him, or even Magneto acknowledging it himself.

* In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Loki is prone to PuttingOnTheReich, and performs [[BreakingSpeech a speech]] about how humans "were born to be ruled". One [[BadassBystander old German]] calls him out on this while refusing to KneelBeforeZod:

* The movie ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' (though very definitely not the novel of the same name) uses the Nazi-like symbolism to portray the humans as an [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters evil invading race]] by PuttingOnTheReich, and occasionally showing a propaganda commercial. This is capped by Creator/NeilPatrickHarris (at the time, best known for ''Series/DoogieHowserMD'') as a Dr. Mengele {{Expy}}. One [[WildMassGuessing fan theory]] is that the humans faked the asteroid attack to justify the invasion. Either that, or used the opportunity provided by the otherwise natural asteroid strike to start a war.

* The Project (commonly referred to as the Black Lance), from ''VideoGame/WingCommander IV: The Price of Freedom'' is a [[{{anvilicious}} none too subtle]] 27th century Nazi analog, complete with a {{nanomachine}}-based bioweapon designed to target "undesirable" individuals, ''a la'' the Final Solution.

* ''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.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', after the revelation of what [[spoiler: Minister Malack]] plans to do with the Empire of Blood when he inherits it in some 30-40 years (to whit: organising for a thousand [[HumanSacrifice sentient beings to be sacrificed]] each day in the name of his deity, Nergal), plus his idle comment of needing to make "some special chamber to do it in" as Tarquin's silly arenas are inefficient, in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0875.html #875]], the forums were immediately filled with posters comparing [[spoiler: him]] to the Nazis and Adolf Hitler in particular. [[WordOfGod The Giant himself]] promptly [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=14808112&postcount=125 showed up]] and explained that the issue actually left certain details out; [[spoiler: Minister Malack's]] plans also include creating a ruling caste of vampiric nobles to control the Empire with him, and the chambers were based on equal parts ''Film/SoylentGreen'' and factory farming. The professional butchering chambers ([[AuthorTract the Giant is a vegetarian, see?]]), are supposed to sacrifice via exsanguination, so that Nergal gets deaths in his honor and the vampires get blood to feed their own hungers.

** When Hiro travels to the future aftermath of the destruction of New York City, the future depicts Nathan Petrelli [[spoiler:(actually Sylar, who had killed Nathan far earlier)]] as president, as well as a hunting down of evolved humans in a very similar manner to UsefulNotes/NaziGermany. Mohinder even mentions sarcastically leading evolved humans into gas chambers when expressing disgust towards "Nathan's" request to test a serum that would kill evolved humans on Hiro.

Common elements include a [[PuttingOnTheReich black- or brown-uniformed paramilitary political force with simple geometric emblems on their arms]], centering on one person as the supreme leader heavily guarded by his [[BlackShirt black shirted longcoat-wearing minions]]. Their ideology typically consists of the leader constantly shrieking, "[[TheSocialDarwinist We are the Master Race/Species! We will reign supreme! We will crush all who oppose us! All inferiors shall submit or/and die! Hail Victory!]]". To that end, they will commit the most hideous of crimes in a heartbeat, and the only thing that will get them to stop is unyielding force.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}'' has [[spoiler:Pascal/Claudandus]], a cat killing off specific cat breeds that he deems 'unworthy' of existence. It's explained more thoroughly in the book.
* ''Disney/TheLionKing'' gives us the song ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkU23m6yX04 Be Prepared]]'', in which Scar rallies the Hyenas into setting up a new age in Pride Rock, ruled by Scar and the Hyenas. The Nazi Symbolism is quite clear during a sequence when the Hyenas goose step (the most evilest march ever) by Scar. The scene is directly inspired by ''Film/TriumphOfTheWill''. This makes the song especially chilling if you watch it in either [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NoUlrh2ap0 Hebrew]] or [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWm87HkaYdE German]].

* ''Literature/WatershipDown's'' Efrafa warren has aspects of Nazism, Stalinism, and ancient Sparta. It's not really a straight-up allegory, since the Efrafrans aren't shown to be racist and their leader, General Woundwort, actually ''is'' the BadAss he likes to be seen as, but it is nonetheless a police state obsessed with security, fear of the outside, and physical perfection.

* The German film ''Das Experiment'' is a fictionalized dramatization of the StanfordPrisonExperiment, which emphasizes the Nazi-like aspects of the guards' behavior. In case the point isn't obvious enough, their leader actually resembles a blond Hitler.
** At one point, one of the prisoners even calls him a Nazi.

* ''Film/DasTestamentDesDoktorMabuse'' might be the TropeCodifier. Director Creator/FritzLang recasts diabolic crime boss Dr. Mabuse as an evil visionary promoting an "Empire of Crime" dedicated to sowing chaos and destruction. Unsurprisingly, Joseph Goebbels saw Mabuse as a Hitler analogue and promptly banned the film.

* In Creator/OctaviaButler's ''[[Literature/ParableOfTheSower Parable of the Talents]]'', the Christian America sect is exactly like the Nazis. They have a GloriousLeader, Jarrett, who persecutes all non-Christians and others who he sees a scapegoats. They place all people they see as "heathens" into concentration camps where they are forced to do hard labor, be converted to Christianity, and raped and beaten. They also often will take the children of the so-called "heathens" in order to raise them as Christians.
