* The Templars of Kirkwall in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' have elements of this, with the most blatant example being Ser Alrik and his "[[FinalSolution Tranquil Solution]]" to give magical lobotomies to all mages.

After it turns out the higher-ups rejected the idea (which didn't stop Alrik from forging ahead on his own) one companion cheerfully tells the resident mage rights activist that it turned out not to be the ''holocaust'' he thought it was.

Pokemon: Added in Lysandre's Holo-Caster as an example of Team Flare
** Team Flare in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' are an even straighter example. Their goal is happiness for themselves and themselves only, and [[spoiler: their leader seeks to create a more "beautiful" world by ''killing everyone who isn't a member of Team Flare''.]]

* In ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'', the Sons of Fenris are a (relatively) subtle Middle Ages example. They greet Gulnar by shouting "Hail Gulnar" and punching the air, they use a sun cross as their symbol (which is not necessarily Nazi in nature, but is a banned Nazi emblem in Germany when used in an overt right-wing political context), and Adolf Hitler had a personal near-totemic fascination with wolves.

* The Kreelers (anti-mutant lobby) in the ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' strip ''StrontiumDog'', led by Nelson Bunker Kreelman (pictured above). There's even a Kreeler Youth organisation.

* The Wesenrein in ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' a centuries old group of extremist Wesen that oppose "race-mixing" (a Wesen marrying a Wesen from another bloodline) and befriend Grimms (traditional enemies of the Wesen in general), even their flags look disturbingly similar to the Third Reich's flag.

seems like Star Wars Expanded Universe examples should go in the appropriate sub-folders (Literature, Live-Action Animation, etc), not Film
** Rather ironically, a ''Rebel'' ceremony at the end of the original film is clearly modeled on ''Triumph of the Will''.
to:
** 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. ** Rather ironically, a ''Rebel'' ceremony at the end of the original film is clearly modeled on ''Triumph of the Will''.''Film/TriumphOfTheWill''.

** The EU even had a ''flying death camp''. The chief scientist onboard was a slightly more honest version of Mengele, who admits he doesn't have scientific reasons, real or imagined-he just tortures and dissects alien beings ForTheEvulz. (In a comic where the leading man is Boba Fett, you need the occasional villain that makes a merciless bounty hunter look good.) ** The One Sith, the Empire's spiritual successors in the comic series StarWarsLegacy, also emulated several Nazi-like imagery. They even had a genocide policy on Dac that's called [[FinalSolution the Final Protocol]]. ** In one of the Ewok cartoons and other sources, Palpatine also ordered for a research team to retrieve the Sun Star, an object with implied mystical powers, among other things, referring to how UsefulNotes/NaziGermany often sought out [[{{Ghostapo}} occult artifacts]] to conquer the planet.

** The cover of the ''Literature/YoungJediKnights'' book ''Jedi Bounty'' shows some Diversity Alliance banners that consist of a black symbol in a white circle in a red field.

** * In ''Film/TsogtTaij'', the invading Chinese and Tibetans are cruel and merciless. The cover of film uses a closeup to show the ''Literature/YoungJediKnights'' book ''Jedi Bounty'' shows some Diversity Alliance banners that consist of swastikas the Tibetan Buddhists use during a black religious ceremony. Of course, the swastika is an ancient religious symbol that predates the Nazis by a millennium or more--but in a white circle this film, made in a red field.Soviet-allied UsefulNotes/{{Mongolia}} just as UsefulNotes/WorldWarII was ending, the context is clear. To make it even more obvious, the swastikas shown in the movie are right-facing, Nazi-style, rather than left-facing as used in actual Buddhist iconography.

* Though ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' of course has Nazis as the bad guys, the "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!" understandably has [[NoSwastikas no actual swastikas]] used, replaced with the Balkenkreuz. In addition to that the show has had African American men portraying some of the bad guys[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXHejqS01KE]]. On PoliticallyIncorrect [[Series/RealTimeWithBillMaher Bill Maher]] once joked about the use of black Nazis in the show, though it's not clear if they are actual troops or a suit wear character like Toht as appears to be the case now. Regardless, it's good to know that the Third Reich have become more open-minded and inclusive fascists and one has to wonder what other groups might change.[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q4txN1ut20]]

** Unfortunately, by the events of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the Eastern Brotherhood of Steel have not just forgotten but purposefully buried the altruistic and humanitarian ideals pushed by Owyn Lyons and his daughter Sarah (who they say were too soft) and become... Well, let's just say it is a trifle odd that your induction exam isn't really concerned with your physical health and psychological stability, instead asking you strange questions like if you've ever been exposed to large amounts of radiation, if you've ever had sex with a non-human, or if you'd ever hesitate to kill any enemy of the Brotherhood.

** He dissolved the parliament of Amestris, so that explains how he's still in power. ** King Bradley (King is his first name (and it's a real name, too; just ask King Gillette)) is actually President King Bradley in his position of head of state, and Führer King Bradley in his job as head of the military. As such, he is occasionally called President-Führer King Bradley. Talk about ego. ** In the canon of [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime]], it's even revealed that [[spoiler:the story is set in a parallel world to our own, during the time frame of World War I, and World War II is in the works]].

** ''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]].
