* Practically the whole premise of ''Anime/PumpkinScissors'' is Post [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne WWI]] Pre [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII WWII]] Germany. "Gespenst Jäger" (Ghost Hunter, though "Gespenst" is only the singular - correct version would be Gespensterjäger, as one word) and "Himmel" (a drug) which means heaven/sky, are the ones you hear mainly.

** The trope is completely averted completely averted in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheOldBlood'', where the use of German is as accurate as possible, and even the German dialects that appears, such as Bavarian, are spot on.

* ''Anime/SoraNoWoto'' has several dialogs entirely in German which is called "Roman" in the anime. The Arcadians appear to use French, but this only appears in writings and city names.

** They are also quoting a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwdW989_NGM piece of music]] (at about the 0:05 mark) from the 80s that is quite well known in Germany but obscure elsewhere. Doubles as GeniusBonus if you aren't German

* Slovenian band ''Music/{{Laibach}}'' like to translate innocent songs like ''Life is Life'' into German and adapting the music ... slightly. The result would not be out of place at a Nazi rally.

* Slovenian band ''Music/{{Laibach}}'' like to translate innocent songs like ''Life is Life'' into German and adapting the music ... slightly. The result would not be out of place at a Nazi rally. Their name also qualifies, as Laibach is the (now almost out of use) German name for Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
