* The ComicBook/RedSkull was personally trained by UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and, having GoneHorriblyRight in that regard, made no secret to the Führer that he had ambitions of his own, but was willing to bide his time.
** Though interestingly, he actually respected and liked Hitler enough to never actually move against him. This was not the case in the movies, of course.

Compare/contrast with DragonWithAnAgenda; here you don't need to be TheDragon, and with this trope you get an instantly recognizable yardstick of evil for the villain to compare himself to and to rob of funds.

funds. Contrast with WeDidntStartTheFuhrer for the times when the roles are inverted and Hitler is the dragon of an even more terrible villain.

* In the Red5 comic book series ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'', Robo's (arguably) arch nemesis, Baron Von Helsingard, uses this trope to seek ultimate power, and gains quite a following in the process. And later in the series, two leading members of Hitler's Weird Science division are revealed to be secretly working for the cloned brain of Helsingard all along.

** In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2'', Yuri aided the Soviets in their rise to power, but has his own plans and was using the war as a smokescreen so he can set up his Psychic Dominators to mind control the world when the Allies and Soviets aren't looking.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' three-part episode "The Savage Time", the immortal Vandal Savage in the present builds a time machine and sends [[TimelineAlteringMacGuffin a laptop]] back to himself during World War II, containing future history and schematics for technology. Vandal then joins the Nazis and rapidly rises through the ranks until he usurps Hitler himself, becoming the new Führer. Vandal Savage didn't really care about Nazi ideals; he just wanted to use them to conquer the world for himself.

* ''AssassinsCreed'': Hitler was a Templar. Need any more proof that they're the bad guys? Also, taking RefugeInAudacity, this trope applies to the series' versions of Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill, who all colluded with Hitler to arrange the war.
