* The Australian short film ''Ubermensch'' (based on a story by Creator/KimNewman) has an aging Nazi hunter visiting his last target in his cell in an American prison... who's still as young as the day they first met. Turns out this is an alternate ComicBooks/{{Superman}} who landed in Nazi Germany instead of the United States. So how do you kill someone who's effectively immortal?

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 UsefulNotes/WorldWarII (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.
