* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Stroheim is a severely maimed Nazi soldier who gets several cybernetic enhancements throughout Part 2, including a minigun with armor-piercing bullets in his chest and a ''laser eye''. He is one of the good guys by the way. The Jojo of this generation [[spoiler: receives a robotic hand from the Nazis as a parting gift after he loses his in battle]].

With few exceptions, pretty much [[AcceptablePoliticalTargets everyone agrees]] that the Nazis were very, '''very''' bad, what with the socio-political repression, the institutionalized racist policies, the wars of aggression against their neighbours, the mass imprisonment and murder of dissidents and undesirables, the attempt to exterminate the entire population of eastern Europe and replace them with Germans, and [[NeverLiveItDown forever ruining the reputations]] of [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking eugenics and social Darwinism as serious academic disciplines]]. So, how do you make ThoseWackyNazis even more intimidating? Why, by giving them PoweredArmor and [[AliensAndMonsters alien allies]], of course!

* The pre-war streamline racing cars like Auto Union Streamliners and Mercedes-Benz Rekordwagens love this trope too, back when aerodynamics technology were primitive.

* The video game grandaddy of this trope is the classic ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'', which, pictured above, featured Stupid PoweredArmor Hitler as a final boss. Shooting off his armor just results in him becoming Stupid {{Gatling|Good}} Hitler. Another level featured a [[MadScientist maniacal]] [[PlayingWithSyringes syringe-happy]] Nazi doctor who's created some sort of android-zombie abominations with machineguns embedded in their chests to set against you. Sequels ''ReturnToCastleWolfenstein'' and ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'' have B.J. Blazckowitz dealing with Nazi superscience along with [[{{Ghostapo}} the occult]] as well as NazisWithGnarlyWeapons.

** Infamously, the Germans developed highly potent chemical weapons like Zyklon B (which was originally a commercial pesticide), as well as the nerve gases Sarin and Tabun, which they manufactured in huge quantities. However, almost none of these were ever used for military purposes. This may be partially explained by the taboo that came from their use in World War I: Hitler himself was a victim of gas attacks while serving in the military and [[EvenEvilHasStandards absolutely refused to use them in combat]] - not even against the Soviets, [[CombatPragmatism though this was undeniably motivated more by concerns of Soviet (and possibly British, if the British took such a measure to mean that German chemical attacks upon themselves were inevitable) retaliation]]. Instead, the Nazis only used them for the systematic murder of Soviet prisoners of war and other minorities in the death camps.

*** The smallest German tank, named Goliath (which along with Ratte and Maus shows the German military R&D certainly had a sense of humor) was a remote-controlled bomb on tank treads. This fell solidly in the "good potential as an idea but the technology isn't there yet" camp. Firstly, the technology wasn't advanced enough to allow radio control, and instead it was controlled via cable which naturally was prone to getting caught on the terrain and snapped off. For obvious weight and maneuverability reasons the Goliath was very lightly armored, which along with the explosive payload left it easily destroyed by machinegun fire.
