* 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]]...

** The original ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' has zombies as Mooks on one level. No real explanation for them, but it still counts.

* ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' of course. Not one, but two of the movies and the cinematic [[VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis adventure game]] feature Nazis trying to recover an ancient artifact that will grant them untold magical power, including [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk The Ark Of The Covenant]], [[Film/TheLastCrusade the Holy Grail]], and other stuff. One of the comic books features Indy searching for TheSpearOfDestiny and having to battle both Nazis and druids to get it. Ultimately, of course, it ends up with the US military, and since ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the destiny of the world lies with the Spear]]'' Hiroshima is nuked almost immediately afterward.

* In RealLife the Nazi most interested in the occult was Heinrich Himmler, while Hitler personally had very little interest in the subject, mostly seeing the dramatic and political implications of secret societies, and banning all that didn't support his reign. While he admired the Teutonic myths, his intention was not to replace Christianity with a dead religion, but to get the state absorb all the properties of a religion, much like the Soviet Union had done, at least for starters - [[AlternateHistory one can only speculate]] what would have followed if he had won, or ended in a stalemate.

* In ''ComicBook/AthenaVoltaire'', the [[SupernaturalFiction supernatural elements]] and the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi-fighting elements]] of the series aren't ''always'' intertwined, they often are; the Nazis are after some sort of occult advantage, and need to be thwarted. The Thule Society is a prominent antagonist, and never seems to learn that EvilIsNotAToy.

** In-universe, Hitler himself apparently has no real belief in the occult or advanced technology (as in real life). [[TheObiWan Erskine]] tells [[TheHero Steve]] that Hitler simply uses Norse symbology as propaganda, while Schmidt genuinely believes in the Asgardians. Although Schmidt makes a throwaway line about the Fuhrer "[[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk digging for trinkets in the desert...]]"

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' companion has a setting where you can play as a scion involved in WWII. Hitler is a mortal, not even a scion, who was given Odin's spear by Loki as part of an attempt to use fatebinding to rewrite the Norse legends so that Ragnarok doesn't happen. It should be noted that the Aesir, including Hel and Loki, we're horrified when they discovered the Holocaust and its extent. The book states that upon learning what one of her scions was up to, that Hel created a "special" place just for him.
