* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', the Weismann twins were military scientists in Dresden during the war, working with a Japanese magic user to [[{{Ghostapo}} decipher and utilize the Slates]], a magical stone discovered in the wall of a church (which that Japanese soldier takes back to Japan, where it gives the cast their powers in the present day). Subverted in that one of the twins - the one who would become the immortal Silver King, [[spoiler: the BigGood and main character]] - was horrified at the idea of the Slates being used for war, and wouldn't have supported their policies, but wouldn't have had a choice about working for them. His sister seems a bit more comfortable with it, though, telling him not to forget that the military is paying generously for their research.

* In the infamous ''Series/FawltyTowers'' episode "The Germans", some Germans are visiting Basil Fawlty's hotel. He tells everyone "Don't mention the war". However Basil (who, for a change, is actually concussed rather than simply rude) manages to make reference to the war in almost every sentence he subsequently speaks to them. It's subverted here: the Germans are never cast as Nazis (and find the constant references upsetting to the point Basil's actions reduce one of them to tears), but are just trying to enjoy their holidays in peace.

* The late great RobinWilliams had a stand-up routine regarding the German relationship with humor, and this was the punchline. The video can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwwJw849HWc here]].

* The German comic ''German Superhero #1: Der Anfang'' explores how a German CaptainGeographic would likely provoke this trope even for fellow German citizens. [[http://www.inkplosion.de/specials/special_19/gsh_10.html Here]] the superheroes German and Germania (while both separately being on the hunt for actual neo-Nazis) meet for the first time, and a LetsYouAndHimFight situation immediately ensues. Then, on [[http://www.inkplosion.de/specials/special_19/gsh_11.html the next page]]:

* Discussed in ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'', set in German-occupied territory during World War II. The locals tend to assume so, leading to German characters sometimes having to explain (with varying degrees of annoyance) that it's not the case. The SS officer Reinicke is, as would be expected, but the episode "Call of the Dead" establishes explicitly that the other major recurring German characters (Oberst Richter, the garrison commander; Major Freidel, the governor; and Oberleutnant Kluge, the head of the Feldpolizei) aren't.

* Largely averted in ''[[Series/HogansHeroes Hogan's Heroes]]'', despite its setting (a POW camp in Nazi Germany in the middle of WorldWarII). Only one of the recurring German characters belongs to the Nazi party and the anti-Nazi resistance movement among German civilians is frequently featured.

* General Blue, one of the high ranking officers of the Red Ribbon Army in ''Manga/DragonBall'', is not only given the appearance of a SA officer, [[BlondGuysAreEvil blond hair]], blue eyes, superhuman capabilities, and psychic powers, but he even went as far as to say "Auf Wiedersehen" at one point in the manga, a phrase that is German for "goodbye." Of course, considering how the Creator/{{FUNimation}} dub [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent apparently gave him a]] [[EvilBrit British accent]], it seems less obvious.
