Someone who [[TheHunter 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.

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]].

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. Ironically, these groups are often perceived by outsiders as ''[[HeWhoFightsMonster even more]]'' [[NotSoDifferent militant and obnoxious than the modern-day Nazis themselves]].

* In the '80s, ComicBook/{{Magneto}} joined the ranks of several Marvel villains in the ''Acts of Vengeance'' CrossOver simply so that he could get close to the Red Skull and bury him alive. Magneto was a Holocaust survivor so there was no love lost between him and the Skull.

* The New California Republic from the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series becomes this towards the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Enclave]] after the latter's defeat at the hands of the Chosen One. The two eventually go to war with each other and despite numerous casualties on both sides, the [=NCR=] prevailed and the Enclave was forced to relocate to the East Coast to lick their wounds and bide their time; those who stayed behind were executed on the spot, ostracized, or successfully integrated into the [=NCR=] to avoid further persecution. In one particular character's ending in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', [[spoiler: after the conclusion of the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, his connections and history with the Enclave soon were revealed by both the NCR and the Brotherhood of Steel, and the two factions team up together to hunt him down and attempt to try him for his affiliations with the organization, who had a rack sheet of crimes against humanity and non-humanity alike.]]

* The Soldier from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''... sort of. He traveled to Poland during the war to kill Nazis and didn't stop until four years after the war was over, because he ''didn't realize the war was over''. What form this Nazi-killing spree took, exactly, [[CloudCuckoolander or even if they]] [[AxCrazy were really Nazis]], is not made clear.
