* Rudolf Von Stroheim in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', a proud Nazi soldier who's very convinced that anything from German is '''THE BEST IN THE WORLD'''. But nonetheless, he's also a heroic patriot who'll give his life for his country and recognizes the Pillar Men as a threat to the world, thus has no problems with teaming up with people from the Allied nations for that.

* Hans von Hammer, protagonist of the DCComics feature ''ComicBook/EnemyAce''. He's portrayed more as a WorthyOpponent RedBaron kind of person, though.

A common misconception is that "von" should be pronounced with an English a voiced labiodental fricative, the usual sound of V in English. But the V is in most cases pronounced as a voiceless labiodental fricative in German, which is usually spelt F in English, so it is actually pronounced "fon".

# Darker Von Trope: Often the Von implies sternness, skill at intrigue, [[AristocratsAreEvil power, autocracy, villainy, sadism]] or any of the other tropes that {{Those Wacky Nazi|s}} [[NaziNobleman Noblemen]] tend to inspire -- ironically, as the old nobility largely despised the Nazis as ''parvenus''. Less dark variations may include the particularly [[DarknessVonGothickName Gothic]] or the militaristic {{Badass|es}}, especially those that are a riff on Otto von Bismarck (a classic MagnificentBastard) or Baron Manfred von Richthofen, The RedBaron. Sometimes the characters with the name do not have a Germanic origin at all.
