* TabletopRPG/JAGSWonderland has the Army of No, an enormous legion of [[RealityIsOutToLunch Wild Things]] created by the [[EldritchAbomination Caretakers]] to destroy humanity. Everything ''else'' they've done is also to destroy humanity, but the sponsors of the Army wanted ''homo sapiens'' to be ''punished'' for the crime of existing first. So, they quite deliberately made the Army out to be the most gleefully AlwaysChaoticEvil force they could, making them as fascist as possible. The uniforms (many actually have their [[HighlyConspicuousUniform snappy blue jackets]] and [[HellBentForLeather leather fatigues]] sown into them on the manufacturing line so they won't screw up the dress code) was the first step.

** Even Orks used to put on the Reich back in TheEighties: Goffs had their iconic spiked Stahlhelms, while Bloodaxes imitated Imperial uniforms and paraphernalia down to the rank insignia and CommissarCap. The Stormboyz were the most egregious example, though: originally, they were a sub-culture of malcontent youths who rebelled against mainstream Orkish society by doing "un-Orky" stuff such as drilling, parading and being all disciplined and hierarchical. They even wore lightning bolt badges closely resembling the SS-rune.

* In VideoGame/{{Luftrausers}} , your faction does this up to eleven with their uniforms, logos, and generic nazi looking scientists. Although the salutes are normal salutes and instead of a swastika they use a picture of a Rauser plane.

A quick and easy way to suggest a group of people are evil in fiction is to give them uniforms that resemble those worn by the [[ThoseWackyNazis Third Reich]]. In a broader sense, this can also refer to using other stylistic elements from the Nazi times (like the "Führer" title, goose-stepping "stormtroopers", or swastikas [[IThoughtItWasForbidden if the creator]] [[NoSwastikas is more daring]]) to make sure your villains are [[ObviouslyEvil visibly evil]]. When a group puts on the Reich, expect to see the classic fascist colors of [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red background, black symbol, and white circle]] and an easily recognizable, sometimes [[NoSwastikas swastika-like]] insignia somewhere... or [[SigilSpam everywhere]].

* Inverted with Hydra the Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse. During the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', Hydra was an elite Nazi StateSec with uniforms and insignia resembling those of the Waffen SS. Even after [[TheStarscream turning against the Nazis]], they still retain the black uniforms and leather outfits worn by the Nazis. 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]].
