* In ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'', it's said that Hitler was extremely interested in raising an elite commando of werewolves, and had his warlocks invent a collar - called the SS Wehrwolf curse - that would force them to fight for him. He would've succeeded, too, if it wasn't for Stalin of all people hiring a witch to dismantle the Wehrwolf, but the secret of its creation is, unfortunately, not lost to time.

* The ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' strip ''Caballistics, Inc.'' 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.

* Notably, in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', it's England who's obsessed with magic and the occult, not Nazi Germany.

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', the superpower-granting Slates were discovered in a church in Dresden in that time, unlocked by Nazi scientists, and brought to Tokyo after the war by a Japanese soldier sent there to help using his knowledge of Japanese magic. Notable in that the teenaged head scientist working on it was ''horrified'' at the idea of his work being used for war, and seemed to have no idea what was actually going on in the world. And that he gets powers, becomes immortal, [[spoiler: and ends up being the main character seventy years later]].

* ''Series/{{Danger 5}}'' completely embraces the camp potential of this trope, particularly in the episode "Fresh Meat for Hitler's Sex Kitchen", in which Hitler uses {{blood magic}} to magically turn his opponents into [[BlondGuysAreEvil evil]] [[BlondesAreEvil blonds]]. The plan is foiled when his blood sample is tainted by "impure" Swiss blood. And [[LittleKnownFacts as everyone knows]], Swiss blood is [[YodelLand made of money]].

*** It's actually a plot point of the series that once the Nazis shed their occultism and shifted their 'ethics are for quitters' mindset to metallurgy and physics, they suddenly became a much bigger threat. There's only a couple of supernatural artifacts to go around, after all, but if you can give ordinary Wehrmacht troopers alloy armor and sci-fi cannons, well...

** RetCons in the movies' material have rendered this impossible, however, as it is established that the gate was captured and transported to the US before the war started.

* The premise of ''{{VideoGame/Outlast}}'' is a mish-mash of evil corporations and appropriation of Nazi research. A German scientist, Dr. Rudolf G. Wernicke, is explained to have survived WWII and been kept alive through life support and oculist means.

* Unusual for a {{Disney}} MadeForTVMovie, the 1997 film of ''Film/TheLoveBug'' made this an impotant part of Herbie's backstory for the reason he's a SentientVehicle: turns out that a kindly German scientist had theorized a way to make vehicles alive and he had been forced to try to realize this theory (and then mass-produce said vehicles for the regime). Turned out that the procedure required a ''serious'' amount of ThePowerOfLove and thus the scientist was content that it was impossible to replicate... until he was forced to make Herbie's KnightOfCerebus EvilCounterpart Horace, that is.

** Basically the entire premise of ''VideoGame/ReturnToCastleWolfenstein''. It has you trying to prevent the Nazis of the SS Paranormal Division from [[spoiler: resurrecting an ancient Germanic warrior as an [[SuperSoldier invincible superweapon]]]], while fighting off [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot cybernetic Super-Soldiers and zombies animated by dark magic]]. The [[spoiler: supposedly invincible demigod]], however, reveals himself surprisingly weak to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu minigun bullets]]...
