* The Coalition States from ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' are a tyrannical EvilEmpire noted for FantasticRacism, ruled by a charismatic tyrant who corrupted a democratic regime, and whose HumongousMecha and PoweredArmor tend to have a prominent skeleton/Death's Head motif.

* The German film ''Film/DasExperiment'' 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.
** The experiment itself, along with the Milgram Obedience Experiment, were originally devised as an attempt to understand what would drive otherwise good people to commit the atrocities that the Nazis perpetrated during World War II.

* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', the Death Eaters are symbolized as Klansmen--check out the KKK-inspired headgear, torches and "burning signal". ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' shows a snippet of [[spoiler:Hermione's torture from the book, except instead of just hearing her disembodied screams, we also see Belatrix doing...something with the dagger in her hand to Hermione's arm. When we see her arm, we can see that Lestrange carved "Mudblood" into the inside of Hermione's forearm, much like how the Nazis tattooed numbers into the forearms of the Jews in concentration camps]].

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', particularly in [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse the Expanded Universe]], it's definitely possible to see TheEmpire as Nazilike. It's not just the cut of the officers' uniforms (and Grand Moff Tarkin definitely acts the part of a Nazi official) or the fact that its FacelessGoons are called "stormtroopers". The Empire is also strictly, stridently [[FantasticRacism speciesist]], always putting humans before nonhumans, to the point where the nonhumans on the capital planet are restricted to a single sector. And it rose when a charismatic leader talked his way into a high position in a democratic government, created problems, then refused to let go.
** Him gaining power by first becoming Chancellor.
** In the first film, Tarkin refers to the "regional governors" governing directly in the absence of the Senate. The German translation of "regional governor" is ''gauleiter'', and this was the structure of Nazi German government, with the country divided up into various regions that were governed by Hitler appointees.

** There is a shot of Trade Federation battle droids marching through an archway on Naboo in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' that is modeled on a famous shot of Nazi troops marching through the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

* ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'': Skynet and the machines' rule are pretty much the future version of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany. In the [[Film/TheTerminator 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.

* Church of the God Awaiting of ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' mixes this with ReligionOfEvil. They have leader who's getting more and more insane as the war goes on (Clyntahn), his Minister of Propaganda ''a la'' Church (Rayno) the "enemy" who "must be eradicated" (Charisians and Reformists), feared organisation that supervises said eradication and searches for heresy (Inquisition) and concentration camps which are referred to as such.

** Cartman's ginger supremacist movement. He refers to Gingers as "the chosen race"; in the climax of the episode, the gingers kidnap every non-ginger with the goal of exterminating them.

** Cartman's ginger supremacist movement. He refers to Gingers as "the chosen race"; in the climax of the episode, the gingers kidnap every non-ginger with the goal of exterminating them. It should be noted that the episode started off with Cartman spreading hate speech about ginger kids, which led to several kids being bullied. Stan, Kyle, and Kenny sneaked into Cartman's room while he was asleep and dyed and his hair and drew freckles on his face to make him think he was ginger so he'd learn a lesson. Being on the other end of the bullying he instigated, Cartman spearheaded the plan to exterminate non-ginger kids because he refuses to be part of a minority. [[spoiler: He talks everyone down from beginning the genocide when Kyle secretly tells him why his appearance changed, as Cartman realized if the other gingers found out they'd kill him too.]]

* Invoked in "The Devil Went Back to Georgia". The Devil is played by a blond, blue-eyed actor who resembles a Viking. Johnny and the Preacher are played by actors with curly jet-black hair. Does not take much to make the connection that Johnny = David, Preacher = Jesus, and Devil = Hitler!!!

Not to be confused with the {{real life}} white supremacist group known as the "Alternative Right." Despite what they might tell you, they are, in fact, neo-Nazis.
