* 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.

* Wrestling/MichinokuProWrestling wrestler Manjimaru used to wear pants emblazoned with the svastika due to the fact that his name contains the --卍 character. His former partners Brahman Brothers, however, wore svastikas only ForTheEvulz.

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.

* Carlsberg beer formerly had a swastika emblem. At the brewery in Denmark, there is (or was in 1975) a life-size stone elephant resting one foot on a sphere adorned with a swastika.

* In ''Bollywood/KalHoNaaHo'', Naina and Jennifer paint a swastika in the window of their restaurant - in New York - as part of its revamping. No one comments on this, and the new concept is a huge success.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' had a minor villain with a manji tattooed on his forehead. This was removed in the English anime dub, but kept in the English manga localization with an editorial note for explanation.
** Lampshaded in [[YuYuHakushoAbridged Lanipator's]] AbridgedSeries. Yusuke calls the villain a skinhead, and when the villain reacts with wonderment, Yusuke asks him how he couldn't see that one coming, pointing that he is both bald and has a swastika on his forehead. It then gets a further twist, as the villain starts explaining at length how his swastika is not German but Buddhist, and Yusuke attacks him while he monologues, telling him afterwards that he was perfectly aware of the difference but needed a distraction.

* The original ''VideoGame/{{The Legend Of Zelda|I}}'' had a dungeon shaped like a swastika, described as "manji" in the manual. Definitely a case of ValuesDissonance.

** A wartime division raised in the south-west also wore the Native American swastika prominently on both arms. In early 1942 they were on the point of boarding ship on the East Coast to arrive in Great Britain as one of the first large American contingents. At the last minute it was suggested that eighteen thousand Americans arriving in Britain wearing swastika arm patches was not likely to win hearts and minds. The Thunderbird patches were provided as a tactful alternative.

* RedOctober era Russia: the swastika was used as a symbol on the Provisional Government money (kerenki). The Bolsheviks also considered adopting it but ultimately rejected it in favor of the famous red star.
** Ironically, the Nazi party chose it to have a strong, identifiable symbol which would counter the Communists'.

** Celtic: Pre-Christian Celts used swastikas on their metalwork and stonework.

to:

** Celtic: Pre-Christian Celts used swastikas on their metalwork and stonework. They also occur as an incidental pattern within [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_knot Knotwork]], especially the four-cord style.


Added DiffLines:

** Numerous Cultures: As noted earlier with Celtic Knotwork, variants of the swastika pattern are easily generated within repeating patterns of lines and shapes. Associations both positive and negative aside, four pointed spirals make for eye-catching design elements, and so they can be discovered in tiled-pattern-based art forms ranging from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_geometric_patterns Islamic geometric art]] to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quilt#Block_designs quilting]]. In addition to making for the occasional [[HaveAGayOldTime awkward antique wallpaper or tile floor]], it is also the source of some occasional EveryoneIsSatanInHell drama when a modern designer fails to notice, say, something unusual about [[http://www.cracked.com/article_23664_8-brands-who-shot-themselves-in-foot-and-kept-shooting_p2.html the pattern on that Hanukkah giftwrap they're making.]]
