* Played with in Creator/TheThreeStooges' ''Film/YouNaztySpy'': Moronica's national symbol is a swastika made of two snakes tied in a knot, and not rotated like the Nazi symbol (partially visible in [[http://i35.tinypic.com/2r609ea.jpg this still]]).

* An early example of this appeared in 1936's ''CharlieChan At The Olympics'', which were, of course, held in [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Berlin]] that year; all the numerous swastikas that appear (including on UsefulNotes/TheHindenburg) are carefully [[{{Pixellation}} blotted out]].

* The second game in the Japan-only RPG series ''VideoGame/TengaiMakyou'' that was first released on the PCEngine (which has the distinction of being on the top ten all-time most popular games in Japan) was titled ... ''Manji''maru, named after TheHero. Swastikas are featured prominently on the title screen, and in many, '''many''' occurrences throughout the game. Come the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS port, and the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube remake, both Japan-only, and most of them are inexplicably removed!

* The "Fascist flag" in ''[[NavalOps Warship Gunner 2]]'' uses a plain black cross instead of a swastika or iron cross. German warship hulls are also missing the bow swastika.

* According to Unicode.org's [[http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=842c Unihan search engine]], one of the three possible ideograms for ''wàn'' (ten thousand or countless) is an anticlockwise swastika, hence this is the only one of the three which you won't see on {{Mahjong}} Characters tiles (at least in the Western Hemisphere). However, this may be why some Mahjong authorities claim that the ''wàn'' character means "good luck" (although in this context, "ten thousand" is a more accurate interpretation).

* The ''Comicbook/XMen'' villain Holocaust had to be renamed Dark Nemesis when [=ToyBiz=] produced an action figure of him during TheNineties. When Hasbro later featured the character as a Build-A-Figure in their Marvel Legends line, they stuck with the Nemesis name as well.

** The {{Bowdlerise}}d SNES version of ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' had the swastika banners edited to be blank red curtains, and Hitler edited into a clean-shaven dictator with the title of "Staatmeister". On an unrelated note, the German shepherd dogs were edited to resemble giant rats supposedly because attacking and killing dogs is "immoral" [[MoralDissonance even though doing the same to humans is acceptable]].

* Music/{{KISS}} has had problems with these laws in Germany, as another verboten symbol is the stylized 'lightning bolt' S used by the SS -- and also used by KISS in their logo) cannot be used in Germany, and their merchandise in that country uses the more standard S. While the band has been accused of being Nazis, it seems unlikely that founders Chaim Witz and Stanley Eisen (you may know them better as Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley) intended the logo that way.
