* ''Film/TsogtTaij'': Played with. It ''is'' a non-Nazi swastika, being a symbol of Tibetan Buddhism...but this film was made in Mongolia, a Soviet client state, in 1945. The Tibetan Buddhists are the bad guys, seeking to enslave and oppress the Mongolians. It's really an example of ANaziByAnyOtherName.

* An Internet meme popularized by YTMND makes fun of the general public's ignorance of non-Nazi swastikas and will usually display either an unintentionally swastika-shaped design or a historic/non-Nazi example with the caption "OMG Secret Nazi _____!", often accompanied with a superimposed image of Hitler and German dance-pop music.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', a swastika was incorporated in the crest of the Whitebeard pirates. This was changed in the anime to crossbones in a + shape. The manga later {{Retcon}}ned the symbol to match.
** 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".

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' has 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. This is 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 Finnish Air Force used to use a swastika because that was the personal lucky emblem of Count Eric von Rosen, the man who donated their first plane. Confusing when UsefulNotes/{{Finland}} was in an EnemyMine-style alliance with Nazi Germany during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (and operated American and Dutch planes).

* The workers who built The Spirit of St. Louis painted a swastika inside of the propeller's nose for luck along with their signatures. The sign next to the nose cone in its display at the Smithsonian explains that this use of the symbol was Native-American-influenced, but given Charles Lindbergh's later history[[note]]Lindbergh blamed the United States' entry into UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo on an Anglo-Jewish conspiracy.[[/note]], it can be seen as HarsherInHindsight.
