* ''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 Basques: Their main symbol is a decidedly curvy variation resembling four commas. It is still commonly seen throughout Basque communities.

* 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.

* Invoked in Creator/PoulAnderson's ''Literature/OperationChaos'', where the hero, from a universe where WorldWarII was fought entirely differently, knows no other form and can not understand why a demon in hell is wearing the ancient and honorable symbol of the fylfot. The reader, of course, gets enough clues to recognize a {{Ghostapo}} Hitler.

** The swastika is square and blue, making it easily distinguishable from the Nazi one. A variant with long central arms was used by the army. While the air force now uses a roundel, both types of swastikas are still quietly found on flags and medals.

** There is an indirect connection between the Finnish swastika and the Nazis. The benefactor of he Finnish air force, the Swedish Count von Rosen, was a good friend of Hermann Goering when the latter was in exile in Sweden in 1920's. Indeed, Goering would go on to marry the count's niece. It is possible that the Nazi use of swastika drew some inspiration from this relationship.

* 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.
