* The Principality of Zeon and its offshoots from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'''s Universal Century. Gets more {{Anvilicious}} as time goes on, since later series played up the "Zeon = Nazi Germany" metaphor: ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' gives us Axis Zeon = Axis Powers. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' gives us Neo-Zeon = Neo-Nazis. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket Gundam 0080]]'' gives Zeon a fixation on using German words with their mecha, like Kämpfer, Gelgoog Jäger and Rick Dom Zwei. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Gundam 0083]]'' introduced battle flags that were based on the Wehrmacht Reichskriegsflagge. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamMSIGLOO MS IGLOO]]'' waves that same flag with pride, sticks Reichsadlers on almost every uniform going (replacing the Swastika with a Zeonic symbol), and has Colonel Herbert von Kuspen wearing a leather coat and Iron Crosses (and this is the series showing Zeon as the protagonists!) ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Gundam Unicorn]]'' gives the Neo-Zeon group 'the Sleeves' mobile suits with Stahlhelms.

Added DiffLines:

* The Brand X army from ''WesternAnimation/Foodfight''. They even have a Nazi Reichsadler (the eagle enblem) outside their headquarters, just with X replacing the swastika.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', the uniforms worn by [[spoiler: the nation of Marley]] resemble German military uniforms from the first World War. For bonus parallels, members of an ethnic minority are required to wear an [[MarkOfShame armband]] to identify their lower status.

* An unusual (and rather original) subversion occurs in Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Southern Victory/[[FanNickname TL-191]]'' AlternateHistory series, where while the Confederates (who are supposed to be Nazi Germany in the series) pretty much copy almost everything the Nazis do and did--from trials, to their own Expy of Hitler, to even their own salute, party cry, and genocide. The one thing the Freedom Party (the CSA version of the Nazi Party) ''doesn't'' copy is the uniforms. The description in the books and some of the covers show them to resemble WW2 US uniforms. The US on the other hand does use German-styled uniforms and helmets because they have had a long-standing alliance with UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany (to the point of almost hero worship of the German Empire). As for the Germans themselves, Germany is still under the Kaiser. And, [[PlayingWithATrope ironically]], despite TL-191 Confederates eventually becoming an AlternateHistory Nazi equivalent, they mostly use equipment and uniforms clearly based off of those of their traditional allies, the British and French (tanks suspiciously similar to British ones in WWI and Spitfire-like fighter planes in WWII).

** The ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' episode "The Killing Game" featured hunter-race the Hirogen capturing the Voyager crew and forcing them to re-enact a WW2 holoprogram, with the Hirogen taking the part of the Nazis in occupied France. They wore their Nazi uniforms when outside the holodeck too. Somewhat averted, in that only one of them actually believes in the Nazi philosophy - the leader is ready to strike a deal with Janeway in exchange for the holodeck technology.

* Raubtier have an official video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogLwHEPyXBE Achtung Panzer]], which features zombie soldiers in clearly-not-WW2 tanks (they look like Centurions in one view, but the artwork appears inconsistent), led by the Grim Reaper in a beret that looks more like British military than German- but the zombie soldier in command of the lead tank is wearing a rolled helmet which certainly creates the atmosphere (the grey pallette helps with this, plus the appearance of taking over the world) and the machine-gun on his cupola looks rather German WW2 styled.

* Inverted with Hydra in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. During the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', Hydra was a research division of Nazi Germany with uniforms and insignia resembling those of the Waffen SS. Even after [[TheStarscream turning against the Nazis]], they still retain the black uniforms and fascist imagery. However, by the modern age, they discarded most of their Nazi iconography and appearances [[spoiler:which in turn allowed them to infiltrate and hijack S.H.I.E.L.D]].

* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows: Part 1'', the Ministry of Magic becomes this after Voldemort takes over. The {{Mooks}} wear gray versions of the standard Nazi uniform, higher officials like Runcorn wear longcoats similar to those of the SS, and the Ministry starts issuing anti-muggle-born propaganda very similar to the antisemitic tracts issued by the Third Reich. Similarly, Voldemort's own Death Eaters wear hooded robes very similar to those of the Ku Klux Klan, but in black instead of white. When the regular Ministry of Magic temporarily become bad guys in ''[[Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'', they go for a Stalin-era Soviet look.

** In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Franchise/{{Superman}}'s troops in [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce's]] BadFuture [[NightmareSequence "Knightmare"]] give off a clear Nazi stormtrooper vibe, right down to wearing Stahlhelm-like black helmets.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': In the episode "The Safety", Darwin goes overboard about safety. By "overboard", I mean [[spoiler: monitoring everyone around town via security cameras, replacing police batons with blow-up replicas, and chaining people to their seats]]. When Gumball reaches his "evil lair" to stop him, [[http://imgur.com/EchW45z Darwin is dressed like this.]] He also has [[http://imgur.com/YYG0Ri2 these flags]] hanging, which look suspiciously similar to [[http://imgur.com/ovY34U7 a rather well-known]] piece of Nazi symbolism. A rare example in which it's PlayedForComedy. Disturbing comedy, but still comedy.
