* ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' fights lots of Nazis with supernatural and/or superscientific powers.
* The ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' strip ''ComicBook/CaballisticsInc'' makes mention of Nazi Germany's occult warfare division, Sonderkommando Thule, very frequently. When the titular Caballistics, Inc. was still functioning as a secret department in the British Government at its peak during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, as Q Department, Sonderkommando Thule was their biggest enemy. [[spoiler: [[TokenEvilTeammate Solomon Ravne]]]] is revealed to have been a former member.

* In RealLife "Ghost Division" was the nickname for the German Wehrmacht's 7th Panzer Division of WWII - thanks to their LightningBruiser tactics, even the German High Command had difficulties knowing their exact location. In the {{Sabaton}} song ''Ghost Division'' the title division consists of both living and undead soldiers, and is [[EmotionEater fueled by the fear of their enemies]]

Pretty much [[AcceptablePoliticalTargets everyone agrees]] that the Nazis were very, '''very''' bad. So, how do you make them even more intimidating? Why, by giving them BlackMagic and EldritchAbomination allies, of course!

* This is the premise of ''TabletopGame/AEWWII'', with the twist that the Allies have their own equivalents - the British have druids and wizards, while the Americans have drafted Native American shamans and even skinwalkers.

* Contested Ground Studios ''TabletopGame/ColdCity'' is set in Berlin in 1950, after the Second World War went weird. [[StupidJetpackHitler Twisted technology]] and occult research have made Lovecraftian and other horrors real, so the U-bahn tunnels being full of failed [[SuperSoldier super-soldier]] experiments, [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]] and [[EldritchAbomination eldritch abominations]] can be the least of your worries. Given that the party can consist of any combination of American, British, German, French and Russian personnel, that list of worries includes ''each other''.

UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler himself was pretty skeptical of the occult and notions of mystical powers, and restricted secret societies out of fear that they would threaten the power of the Nazi Party, but nevertheless tried to get his hands on TheSpearOfDestiny mostly for propaganda value.

value. Hitler's own religious beliefs are a matter of some dispute, not least because of contradictions in his own writings, but it's generally agreed that he favored a mix of Germanic paganism and "Positive Christianity", while eschewing traditional Christianity.

* ''ComicBook/AmericanVampire'': During World War II, Nazis have worked alongside Carpathian vampires to further their goals. This particular bloodline [[NotSoDifferent also shares their supremacist views]] and consider themselves superior to other vampire species, having [[ANaziByAnyOtherName committed their own genocide against their "inferiors" centuries before the Nazis' ascension]]. In addition, their Japanese counterparts also made experiments on the Pacific theater with a particularly virulent and dangerous vampire bloodline which they intended to deploy in the war.

* Also from Mike Mignola, the second volume of the ''Literature/{{Baltimore}}'' comic (set in an AlternateHistory version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI) has an [[NoNameGiven anonymous]] evil sorcerer heavily implied (and [[http://www.cbr.com/mignola-golden-reach-beginning-of-baltimores-end-in-cult-of-the-red-king/ confirmed]] by WordOfGod]]) to be a young Hitler. Most readers won't realize this at first because he has a different mustache and name.
*** The mustache is a nice bit of [[ShownTheirWork historical accuracy.]] Hitler ''did'' have this style of mustache early in World War I. The German army made him trim it down to a toothbrush in order for his gas mask to fit and he liked it so much he wore it that way for the rest of his life.
