* Submarines. Ironclads. Center-fire brass cartridges. The Confederate States of America proves that the Nazis weren't the only racists with an affinity for (then) outlandish experimental tech.

Contrast UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons, which is about the weapons they had in RealLife. See also {{Ghostapo}}, where Nazis uses super-demonry rather than (or ''[[{{Magitek}} combined with]]'') super-science; and SovietSuperscience, when it's the DirtyCommies showing up with giant robots and spaceships. Compare HistoricalVillainUpgrade. Subtrope of WeirdHistoricalWar.

* On Earth-10 of the post-''Comicbook/FiftyTwo'' DC [[TheMultiverse multiverse]], [[Franchise/{{Superman}} baby Kal-L's rocket]] lands in 1938 Czechoslovakia, where the Nazis find it. Retro-engineered Kryptonian technology enables them to conquer the world, and a grown-up Kal-L, now Overman, helps them deal the finishing blow. Then Overman realises just what he's been complicit in, and he tries to atone by building a utopia.

** ''Videogame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' also has this. In 1946 alone the Nazis manage to mass-produce their [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_Ho_229 experimental stealth jets]] and construct a HumongousMecha known as "The Baltic Eye." It only gets worse as the timeline goes on, and includes robot dogs with MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily (tested against the Russians on the Eastern Front), an improved version of the Baltic Eye called "The London Monitor" (used to put down resistance in London when the Nazis invaded Britain), and smaller but no less dangerous MiniMecha that serve as heavy infantry. It's eventually revealed this massive technological leap was the result of [[spoiler:them discovering and (poorly) reverse-engineering the technology of an [[AncientTradition ancient secret society]] of Hebrew scientists, who have spent thousands of years creating technology so advanced [[ClarkesThirdLaw that it seems almost magical]]]].

*** Another edge the Manhattan Project had over the Nazis was better organization and sound physics. The Nazi nuclear program, meanwhile, split into around nine separate and actively competing programs that frequently tried to undermine the others. Thus, what little materials the Nazis could devote to nuclear research was further split. They were also limited to using only approved "German Physics" that did not include any knowledge deemed "ideologically or racially unsound" -- which, naturally, consisted of a lot of actual nuclear physics.

Finally, the few truly competent nuclear physicists still remaining in Germany at that point were for the most part not terribly pleased with the Nazis for driving their Jewish colleagues out and disinclined to help the war effort, obstructing progress either by suggesting that research into nuclear fission could not possibly produce usable weapons until after the conclusion of the war (which wasn't wrong; the Manhattan Project, ''much'' larger and better funded than anything the Germans had, didn't successfully produce a weapon until after the war was over as far as Germany was concerned), or by actively directing research into areas they personally believed unlikely to be fruitful.

** The infamous V-1 (Fi-103) flying bomb and the V-2 (A-4) ballistic missile, the latter of which was designed by Wernher von Braun (who later headed the design of the Saturn V moon rocket). The V stood for ''Vergeltungswaffe'' = "Vengeance weapon"[[note]]The V in V-2, not in Saturn V. The Saturn V was originally named C-5, so the V is a roman numeral.[[/note]]. The V-2 (aka A-4) was a ballistic missile, captured examples of which were used after the war by both America and the Soviet Union. Both countries actually built some A-4s and redesigned the missile so it would be easier to build and more capable. Due to their relatively primitive design however, many missed their target; this was further exacerbated by the efforts of British intelligence, which leaked false info about successful hits, leading German rocketeers to erroneously re-calibrate their rockets. By the time of the program's cancellation, the V projects -- which were constructed with slave labour -- resulted in a total death toll that was largely overshadowed by the numbers of personnel who were killed during production and development.
