* 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.

They also create cyborgs through "Unholy" research.

* Pretty much the entire plot of Part 2 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Nazis resurrect four ancient vampires known as the Pillar Men, who begin to wreak havoc.
** Though they were looking for a way to kill them. That being said, the narration DID mention the Nazis researching the occult in preparation for WW II. Considering the lack of tangible results, it may very well be that their research didn't work out so well.

** Though they
Men were looking for a way too powerful and dangerous to kill them. That being said, be controlled, and when the narration DID mention Pillar Men inevitably break out, the Nazis researching the occult in preparation have been working for WW II. Considering the lack of tangible results, it may very well be that their research didn't work out so well.some time on how to ''kill'' them permanently, rather than foolishly try to put a leash on such monsters.

* Creator/MichaelMoorcock has featured Nazis messing with the occult in at least two of his novels, ''The Dragon in the Sword'' and ''The Dreamthief's Daughter''. In the former, the protagonists, while looking for the Holy Grail, meet Hitler, Goering and Goebbels conducting a pagan summoning ceremony. They manage, without really trying, to change the course of the war by giving the trio a "sign" that they should invade Russia before inventing the atomic bomb. In the latter, the Nazis want the protagonist's family sword because they believe [[spoiler: correctly]] that it is a mystic artifact of cosmic significance. The climax of the book features Hitler and his chief stooges, er, conducting a pagan summoning ceremony, where they get the bejeezus scared out of them by [[HeroicAlbino Elric]] [[BadAss of Melnibone]]. Elric and the protagonist then lead an army of dragons to save Britain from the Luftwaffe. Both instances are a massive TakeThat, with the protagonists dwelling extensively on what sad little men the senior Nazis are.
