* In an episode of ''TwoAndAHalfMen'', Alan, while impersonating his brother, goes on a one-night stand with an apparently okay girl, who for some reason Charlie rejected. Turns out she's a Nazi-themed BDSM fetishist, wearing stylized bondage stuff, using a german expletive and permanent-marker inking a Hitler-stache on Alan's face, obviously all without the pretense of hiding the reference (Alan even comments on the core aspect of this trope, saying that the mustache itself doesn't look bad, "shame one guy had to ruin it for everybody"). But then the network had to pull this off, by digitally covering a swastika in the girl's armband with a (badly-drawn) Hitler-stache'd smiley face. The writer was clearly pissed, later venting off about this trope in one of his {{vanity plate}}s.

** The games companion world of warships takes this a step further by replacing the German Imperial flag[[note]]This game features many vehicles from WWI unlike world of tanks, mostly due to the vastly longer service life of ships compared to tanks[[/note]] with the one described above. This is because said flag is often used by neo-Nazis as a substitute for the Nazi flag, as the populace at large doesn't recognize it.

** The two games alos use the modern Japanese flag rather than the Imperial rising sun flag which has similar connotations in East Asia to the Swastika in Europe.

* ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' has swastikas everywhere after the Nazis take over Austria and yet no one questions the film's family-friendly credentials. One of the Von Trapp children even innocently refers to it as "the flag with the black spider". The live Creator/{{NBC}} version also averted this trope, leading to [[https://twitter.com/bengreenman/status/408804813993160705 this]].
* In the German dub of ''Series/NewKids Turbo'', the line from the Farmer saying he gave Jews to the Nazis in order to obtain guns ''(and Goebbel's Jacket)'' is removed.

* Celebrity gossip show ''TMZ'' harped on a guy (AJ English, for those who care) who was wearing a T-shirt with a swastika on it when posing for a photo with TaylorSwift. In his defense, he claimed he wears the shirt solely for the propose of deconstructing the symbol's negative connotations. [[CaptainObvious Obviously]], it didn't work.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'': Where the Nazi armband would normally be on the ComicBook/RedSkull's uniform is a black HYDRA one. The traditional 'Heil, Hitler!' and Nazi outstretched-arm salute are replaced with a two-handed salute and 'Heil, Hydra!' Mostly acceptable since it showcases Red Skull's allegiance to his own agenda over Hitler's. In addition, the S.S. officers who come to inspect Schmidt's work are shot at angles from which their brassards aren't visible. Looking carefully, you'll notice that what few instances of swastikas that did appear are very small in size and appear only very briefly and very early in the film.

* This trope factored into the cancellation of ''Indiana Jones and the Iron Phoenix''. Intended as a follow-up to the ''Fate of Atlantis'', LucasArts realized a game with a plot about a post-war attempt to resurrect Hitler might not fly in the German market.

* In the German version of ''Videogame/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', swastikas are replaced by black squares and [[https://media0dk-a.akamaihd.net/85/38/60c4b0a833daaa75e7989dc69d792ae0.jpg blank circles]]. There is a recurring omission, probably an overlook; when a guard is knocked out during a fist fight, stars in swastika form do [[CirclingBirdies appear over his head]].
