** The banning of overt Nazi symbolism in Germany has led to [[http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2015/06/watch-larry-wilmore-nightly-show-confederate-flag German Neo-Nazis employing the Confederate battle flag as their symbol of choice instead]] as a form of LoopholeAbuse--as part of another nation's history predating WWII, it's not actually Nazi symbolism, and thus isn't covered by the German ban on Nazi imagery.

* In the [[SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries Spider-Man]] and WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} cartoons from the 1990s, Captain America was shown in World War Two fighting nondescript Germans, there were plans from a Captain America series that would not feature any references to Nazis. ** ''XMenEvolution'' also played this straight, but when Wolverine mentions Captain America was a super-soldier, Professor X does ask whether this was intended as "The master race". Granted he may not have quite meant it that way but it's still a little surprising to hear.

* Oddly averted in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E3SilverNemesis Silver Nemesis]]", in which De Flores is never actually said to be a Nazi living in exile (even though he obviously is), but his hideout is full of swastikas anyway. Swastikas are also shown in a WWII context in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E3TheCurseOfFenric The Curse of Fenric]]" and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E8LetsKillHitler Let's Kill Hitler]]".
