On the flip side, a NaziHunter must be wary of himself and not to develop a KnightTemplar tendency. If he [[HeWhoFightsMonsters hunted Nazis for too long]], he himself would [[YouAreWhatYouHate become what he hated]]: ANaziByAnyOtherName.

However, there are ''Neo-Nazi'' hunters in RealLife, who are dedicated to making life Hell for anyone they suspect of being a Neo-Nazi or sympathizer, and many of whom are affiliated with the Punk Rock music scene. Groups and movements such as Anti-Fascist Action and Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice (''yes, really'') are a prominent example of this type of modern-day NaziHunter.

* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' features a squad of JEWISH-AMERICAN-SOLDIERS! killin' Nazi officials and soldiers during WW2 as opposed to after it. One of their member also happens to be a HunterOfHisOwnKind, a former German soldier that developed a taste for killing Nazis himself.

Someone who dedicates their life to hunting down ex-Nazis, or is dedicated to hunting down one particular Nazi because of what they did in WorldWarTwo (note: this trope doesn't apply just because the antagonist happens to be an ex-Nazi, it's only for someone who hunts them regularly). Often a BadassIsraeli who might be working for UsefulNotes/{{Mossad}}, a result of the high-profile kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann from [[ArgentinaIsNaziland Argentina]] in 1960. In reality, Mossad stopped chasing war criminals not long after this event, as more urgent threats to Israel took priority.

Something of a DiscreditedTrope these days, as anyone who served in WorldWarTwo gets too long in the tooth to be anything other than a NaziGrandpa. And the generation that would have been old enough to be movers and shakers in the Nazi party would now be centenarians. Finally, the end of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar dramatically expanded the choice of stock villains.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingrid_Rimland Ingrid Rimland]] once cooperated with Simon Wiesenthal to hunt UsefulNotes/JosefMengele, even writing a book, ''Demon Doctor'', about that hunt. Later, she'd meet Holocaust denier Ernst Zündel, marry him and is today a Holocaust denier herself.

On the flip side, a NaziHunter must be wary of himself and not to develop a KnightTemplar tendency. If he [[HeWhoFightsMonsters hunted Nazis for too long]], he himself would [[YouAreWhatYouHate become what he hated]]: [[NotSoDifferent a Nazi]].
