* ''Er Ist Wieder Da'' ("Look Who's Back"), based upon the comedic novel listed below, in which the Führer himself ends up in present day Germany, and becomes a media sensation. An absolute riot. That is, before the MoodWhiplash kicks in and it's shown how a man as savvy and driven as Hitler could do some terribly catastrophic harm to a fragile and fearful modern-day Germany.

* ''Er Ist Wieder Da'' ("Look Who's Back") is a comedic novel in which the Führer himself ends up in present day Germany, and becomes a media sensation. At least, that's the general plot. The book opens with Hitler blithely wondering why Germany isn't an uninhabitable wasteland as per his SaltTheEarth instructions shortly before his actual death, and the man himself gradually worms his way into popularity with the ills of intentions.

This was essentially the default portrayal of Hitler [[WartimeCartoon in most Allied media]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. German atrocities in eastern Europe, which were dismissed as propaganda elsewhere, made this portrayal a little more controversial there. After Franco-Anglo-American citizens became aware of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust in the late 1960s and 1970s, this trope became controversial there as well. This is because some people think that making fun of the Nazis makes the War Crimes and genocides they perpetrated seem 'less serious' somehow.

* In ''Film/RatRace'', Randy Pear is a Jewish father of a family of four, who vehemently refuses to do or own anything even remotely associated with ThoseWackyNazis, including getting a Volkswagen. At one point, they are driving and pass a sign that says "Franchise/{{Barbie}} Museum". His daughter insists they stop by. He agrees and is horrified to learn that the museum is actually dedicated to SS-Hauptsturmführer Klaus Barbie and is run by neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers. After getting his family out of there, they notice that their car has been taken by their rivals. Determined to continue the race, and to spite the neo-Nazis, he steals the old-fashioned car displayed outside the museum (supposedly, one of Hitler's cars). While driving, he accidentally burns his middle finger and then throat with an electric lighter, ending up with him accidentally flipping off passing bikers. The bikers force the car off the road, resulting in them literally crashing a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII veteran rally. During the crash, he also gets a smudge above his lip. You can see where this is going. Dazed, he gets to the podium and starts trying to explain to the veterans what happened, showing them his burned middle finger, but his words are mangled beyond recognition due to his throat damage. As his story gets more animated, he starts wildly gesticulating with his arms, with a lot of the movements involving rapidly throwing his straight arm up. This ends when one of the veterans takes a pot shot at him with his service revolver and misses.

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' has Abradolf Lincler, a hybrid of Abraham Lincoln and Adolf Hitler created by Rick. He was intended to be a perfectly neutral political leader but his conflicting nature makes him act very strange. His first appearance has him show up at a party to attack Rick, only to end up getting the crap kicked out of him by a black guy.
