** While we don't know what he did in particular, Chin [[WrittenByTheWinners the Conqueror/the Great]] is a serious contender for Bonapartism, as seen in the episode Avatar Day.

** While we don't know what he did in particular, Chin [[WrittenByTheWinners the Conqueror/the Great]] is a serious contender for Bonapartism, as seen in the episode Avatar Day. Though he is far more obviously a rather blatant {{expy}} of [[UsefulNotes/QinShiHuangdi the First Emperor of China]], whose ''name'' he also shares.

A subtrope of FictionalPoliticalParty and DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything. Compare with PuttingOnTheReich, ScaryDogmaticAliens, and SpaceJews. Compare and contrast with GratuitousNazis, where actual Nazis are used (where one wouldn't expect to find them) just to have some villains that can be instantly identified as evil. Visit the scenic {{Reichstropen}} for more about ThoseWackyNazis and their imitators. For empire builders who consider themselves inherently superior to all other races/nations but don't necessarily partake of other Nazi ideology or imagery, see MasterRace. And if they're PlayedForLaughs, that's AdolfHitlarious.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'' has the Eastern Alliance on planet Terra (surprisingly, an aversion to the PlanetTerra trope in that it's not Earth), which serves as a fusion of sorts between Nazi Germany and Soviet Union. The uniforms appear to include elements of both, as well as their attitude towards others. They view the Western Coalition (the democratic bloc) as inferiors and are perfectly willing to make peace with them and then attack (DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything). When launching their nukes, the Commandant even tells his subordinates to only put the most "critical and loyal" citizens into bomb shelters, citing the projected casualties from the Western Coalition's nuclear retaliation as "acceptable".

From 1933 to 1945, [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Germany]] was ruled with an iron fist by UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and his [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi Party]]. They eventually used RefugeInAudacity to execute millions of people they found undesirable, with about half (using the 12 million death figure) being Jews, the rest being various other groups that often got picked on in Europe: communists, Roma, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the mentally ill, disabled people, Slavs, etc. The Nazis also helped start [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the most destructive war in human history]], which killed even more people (estimates range from 40 to 80 million, based on what you include. Typically reported as the midpoint 60) Under Nazi control, the German military committed widespread atrocities across Europe, from soldiers partaking in looting, burning and killing civilians throughout occupied territory, to pilots strafing crowds of fleeing refugees. The result is that they are considered by Western culture to be one of the most evil groups of people that ever lived, and therefore [[AcceptablePoliticalTargets easy and acceptable to make look bad]].

* In Literature/NineteenEightyFour The Party INGSOC is ''very'' Nazi-like. It kills and/or kidnaps any dissidents, tirelessly releases propaganda, is discriminant towards the populace and is constantly at war. [[spoiler:O'Brien]] even notes in his GrandInquisitorSpeech that the Nazis and the Stalinists came closest to what the Party is trying to achieve.

* 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.]]

** ''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 Weimar-by-any-other-name 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]].

General Hux's speech right before Starkiller Base blows the Hosnian System into a trillion space chunks clearly takes after the way Hitler did his speeches, starting off fairly firm but calm but escalating into [[ChewingTheScenery outright screaming]] at the end of his last sentence.

* Ragnar, the [[OurElvesAreBetter elven]] BigBag of ''FanFic/PowerRangersGPX'', might as well be an elf version of a fascist dictator, right down to desiring a FinalSolution to eliminate humanity, and [[spoiler: having concentration camps.]] To put it in depth, he believes that humans, whom he considers to be inferior to elves, are a threat to Earth. So he manipulates his Queen to be able to attack the Power Rangers (who'd recently saved the world from an alien invasion). But then when she tells him off, he [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness decides he never needed her in the first place and tries to kill her.]] Then he overthrows the government, installs himself as dictator, and all but declares war on humanity. As the fic goes on, his nazi-like tendencies are fleshed out, culminating [[spoiler: in TheReveal of the aforementioned concentration camps.]]

* In ''FanFic/TheLoneTraveler'' an unusually insightful version of Vernon Dursley outright calls the Death Eaters Nazis (or wannabes thereof).
