* In the setting of ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'', the trope is taken to its logical (?) extreme. One of the HoE rulebooks explains (from the future perspective) that the Nazis used their own brand of [[MadScientist Mad Science]], [[spoiler: creating devices powered, among other things, by souls of war prisoners.]] Furthermore, [[spoiler: Hitler actually intends to raise the Fear Level all over Europe to such levels that he can bring [[BigBad the Reckoners]] to Earth. And then control them.]]

* ''TabletopGame/DeltaGreen'' features the Karotechia, the bare remnants of Hitler's occult program hiding out in South America. They have a perfect example of the Ubermensch (thanks to his discovery of a cannibal tribe's immortality rituals) and Hitler's third book, ''Mein Triumph'' -- dictated by the spirit of an "ascended" Hitler himself ([[spoiler:who's actually just Nyarlathotep being a dick as usual]]).

Actions against Nazi occultism in World War II played a significant role in the eventual state of Delta green.

* In ''Night's Black Agents'', Nazis are mentioned repeatedly in the setting-building chapter as a convenient option for where a given form of vampire came from.

* The ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}: Ultimate'' {{O|riginalVideoAnimation}}VAs and the original ''Hellsing'' manga features one of the most terrifying examples of this trope, Millennium: which has Nazi vampires en masse, as well as the more specialized Nazi werewolf, [[ImprobableAimingSkills magical flintlock]] [[TheGunslinger sharpshooter]], MadScientist/[[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Doktor]], mesmerist, and quantum catboy fighters. For extra points, they ''also'' get [[StupidJetpackHitler advanced technology and weaponry]] in the form of advanced attack zeppelins armed with V-1 bombs and V-2 rockets, heavy weapons and armor, and microchips which can be used to monitor the location and progress of their troops from afar, and remotely incinerate them.

* Creator/CharlesStross's ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Atrocity Archive]]'' portrays the Holocaust as a gigantic necromantic experiment, ''Operation Jotunheim'', to summon an [[EldritchAbomination Infovore]], a being of near-infinite cold that feeds on energy and information; the titular archives store the particular artifacts that the public should never find out about. [[spoiler:It also features an AlternateUniverse where the Nazis ''succeeded'' in their goal; unfortunately for them, they weren't in control of it and didn't realize what they'd unleashed until it was much, ''much'' too late. As a result, that universe is nearing its [[ApocalypseHow entropic heat death]] in the present days, and the laws of physics themselves were being distorted.]] A particularly nasty bit involves the description of Nazi necromantic practices, or as Stross dubs it, Algemancy - divination thru pain. (There's also some crossover with StupidJetpackHitler since "magic" in the Laundryverse is really just applied higher mathematics crossed with computer science with a little quantum physics for seasoning.)

Many people believe that the Nazis were very, '''very''' bad. So, how do you make them even more intimidating? Why, by giving them BlackMagic, {{Alchemy}}, and EldritchAbomination allies, of course!

** Himmler also had a spiritual adviser named Karl Wiligut, who was quite an interesting character. While Himmler believed himself to be a reincarnation of Henry the Fowler, Wiligut believed he was a descendant of the Norse god Thor. Wiligut conducted SS rituals in Wewelsburg Castle, studied and taught the secrets of the runes, and designed the Totenkopf ring.
*** The Nazis did not originate the use of the Totenkopf. It had been a German (specifically Prussian) military emblem for centuries.
