** In the MarvelUniverse, Hitler got punched out by ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. He was also cloned and came back as "the Hate-Monger", a supervillain dressed in a purple KKK outfit, before being KilledOffForReal. He was also shown explicitly as the Red Skull's benefactor -- [[EvenEvilHasStandards something that makes the Red Skull really unpopular with the rest of the supervillain community]]. Hitler didn't die by his own hand, but was instead [[KillItWithFire burned alive]] by the Human Torch and his sidekick Toro. Hardly IngloriousBasterds, but it works.

There can be no doubt that Hitler loved Germany -- or at least, [[SelectiveObliviousness the Germany of his imagination]]. The tribal Germany that smashed the Roman Empire and superseded it, the Germany of pagan myth -- strong, respected, and grandiose. He commissioned great public works in Berlin seeking to dwarf the capital cities of other nations. Hitler's dream Germany was pure and unsullied, strong in body and mind, without [[AcceptableTargets Jews or blacks or homosexuals or gypsies or Poles or communists or disabled people or "asocials" or "loose" women or jazz or]]... well, you get the idea. Adolf was obsessed with notions of purity. Racial purity, political purity, even religious purity. Everything and everyone that was less than perfect by Hitler's standards, simply had to go. [[TheHero And he saw himself as a hero]], [[MessianicArchetype a savior]], [[AGodAmI perhaps even something like a god]]. When he finally realized he had lost the war -- about a year ''after'' everyone else in the world realized it -- he wanted to go out in a blaze of glory, and take all of Germany with him. At the end of the war, Hitler [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled killed himself]] just as his greatest enemies, the Soviets, were advancing to within a stone's throw of his bunker. The whole thing must have seemed to him like Creator/RichardWagner's ''[[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung Götterdämmerung]]'' come to life. To the rest of the world, it seemed like an apocalyptic effort to take down a sort of Lucifer-esque figure -- a madman who believed himself superior to everyone and everything.

When he shot himself with a Walther PPK--the very same one his niece killed herself with (or possibly / probably, the one he killed her with), the remaining senior Nazis burnt his body, but didn't do it successfully. When the RedArmy arrived, they finished the job off and chucked the ashes in a river, deciding that they didn't want a shrine to the guy (though they did keep fragments of what they believed was his skull archived somewhere in Moscow... [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8281839.stm and they seemed to have been mistaken]].)

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'': Hitler makes a short appearance in the opening cinematic of the game, as UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein uses a TimeMachine he built to travel back to Hitler's release from Landsberg Prison in 1924 and [[RetGone erase him from history]]. This ends up [[HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct backfiring]] when this results in a different World War II with the Soviets as the aggressors.

** In ''Worldwar'', Hitler leads Germany through the expanded UsefulNotes/WW2 as the aliens invade, and is succeeded by Himmler upon his death.
** In TL-191, where Germany won UsefulNotes/WW1, he makes a brief appearance as Guderian's staff sergeant, with the implication that he would stayed an unremarkable antisemitic NCO without the public anger at the loss of the war. Unfortunately, his {{Expy}} Jake Featherston is there to start the war as leader of the Confederate States of America.

* ''Literature/TheManInTheHighCastle'' is a 'Nazis won WW2' AlternateHistory with a difference: in 1962, the Nazis have thrown Hitler in a lunatic asylum, and part of the horror of the CrapsackWorld is that even the Nazis now realise that their empire was built on insanity, but no-one dares to confront it.

Compare/contrast to JosefStalin. See UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini for his less famous and considerably more incompetent Italian counterpart, and UsefulNotes/HidekiTojo for his Japanese ally and partial counterpart.

* In the short story "Southern Strategy" by Michael F. Flynn, in which Germany won WW1, Hitler has become a major political leader in Germany, and has gained massive support for his cause through his speaking skills and charismatic personality. His cause is the furthering of animal rights and the banning of tobacco.
