** Viz Media left the early logo unaltered in their English translation, but added an editors note explaining that it's "an ancient Buddhist symbol, not a swastika".

* In ''LookToTheWest'' the swastika becomes thought of as an Etruscan symbol because it was found on an Etruscan artefact and then used as the symbol of a Tuscan-based radical movement inspired by the Etruscan civilisation as a result. In reality of course the Etruscans were just one of many cultures to use the symbol, but it's the one that got all the publicity.

* Corsair LED PC case fans, due to placement of 4 LED strips across the curved fan arms, end up creating a very [[http://i.imgur.com/faWd47Y.jpg Swastika-like pattern]] on the front of your computer when running, complete with the enclosing circle. [[WebVideo/ZeroPunctuation "PC Masterrace" jokes aside]], it's probably unintentional on Corsair's part.

* Until 1983, the yearbook at New Mexico State University was called Swastika. It was changed in spite of a poll in which students voted overwhelmingly to keep it.

* The entrance hall of the Botanic Faculty of the University of Munich features a rather prominent swastika mosaic on its marble floor. Even though the design, representing flora and fertility, dates back all the way to 1910, it still tends to turn a lot of heads due to the fact that it's in ''UsefulNotes/{{Munich}}''. The university even considered putting up an explanatory sign next to it.

The swastika is an ancient sun symbol, used in many cultures throughout history. If you see a swastika in a work any work made in the 1920s or earlier, the symbol has nothing to do with UsefulNotes/NaziGermany.

* Early in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', there's a {{Yakuza}}-like faction called the "Hishimanji". They wear armbands with the manji turned on one of its corners (yes, just like the Nazis), as well as having them printed in a few spots of their robes.

* In ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'' Neji's curse-seal is a swastika. It's left alone in the manga, but the anime changed it to an X.
