* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytVdBLMmRno This]] ad for Mercedes has Hitler being run over by a car as a child, as the car "detects dangers before they come up". Not surprisingly, the ad was rejected.

* Due to the way time travel works in ''VideoGame/QuantumBreak'', killing Hitler is impossible (long story short, the furthest back you can go is the first activation of the time machine you're using, and the first time machine was activated in 1999). You can find a draft for a book on time travel by Will where a note mentions that [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore he's really sick of hearing jokes about killing Hitler]].

First of all, it often proves near-impossible to kill the man in the first place; like most dictators he's protected by various [[PraetorianGuard bodyguards]] and [[StateSec security forces]][[note]]and sheer luck[[/note]]. After all, the guy survived about ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attempts_to_kill_Hitler 42 (known) real life assassination attempts]]'' -- maybe one of them was ([[TimeTravelTenseTrouble or will have been]]) yours! Trying to circumvent these by targeting him before his rise to power begins will usually turn out to be ludicrously difficult as well. Locating a lone, disillusioned war veteran wandering around post-WWI Europe is perhaps the ultimate [[NeedleInAStackOfNeedles needle-in-a-haystack]] search.

*** Another TimeTravel episode had Stewie give money to a young Adolf Hitler, thinking he was Charlie Chaplin.

* In the ''{{Champions}}'' module "Wings of the Valkyrie," the heroes must go back in time to save Hitler after another time traveller kills him before the Nazi Party rises to power... creating an AlternateHistory where things came out even worse (Germany went communist; the West lost the alternate version of World War Two to the German-Soviet alliance; a falling-out between the victors led to World War Three; several cities have been nuked and the major powers don't seem at all afraid of doing it again when the next war breaks out; the United States is sliding into homegrown fascism). Most people in the alternate 1987 have a general sense that [[JustBeforeTheEnd civilization is inevitably going down the drain]]. It caused some complaints from less GenreSavvy readers who had trouble with the premise that offing Hitler might make the world worse.

* In ''{{GURPS}} Time Travel'', it is said that many new recruits to the Time Patrol ask this question: they are given more or less the same answers detailed at the top of this article.

** The central premise of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' is that shortly after World War II, Albert Einstein uses a TimeMachine to meet Hitler at the one moment in history where his location in civilian life was absolutely verified (just outside the gates of Landsberg prison on December 20, 1924, after completing his sentence for his role in the Beerhall Putsch) and then [[RetGone erasing the future dictator from history]]. While this does succeed in preventing the original World War II, the power vacuum leads to an even greater conflict as JosefStalin makes his own attempt to conquer the world, with the Soviets and Allies (including Germany) slugging it out [[SovietSuperscience with weirder weapons]].
