* ''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.

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 The tribal Germany that smashed the Roman Empire and superseded it, the Germany of pagan myth -- strong, respected, and grandiose.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 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.

* 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.

* In the bad movie ''Film/TheySavedHitlersBrain'' Hitler's followers try to find a new body for the preserved brain (in the original film actually Hitler's ''head'') into a new body. Parodied and copied often enough (as in ''IrregularWebcomic'') to have turned into a sub-trope in itself.

With his mother dead and himself rejected from art school twice ([[FelonyMisdemeanor which he blamed on Jews and modern art]]), he avidly took up arms in WorldWarI and fought on the front lines, but joined the Imperial German army instead of the Austrian one, since he didn't want to fight side by side with Slavs. He was decorated with an Iron Cross for bravery, wounded, returned to the front lines, [[TheGogglesDoNothing blinded by a gas attack]], and returned to the front again. His war experiences would remain with him his entire life.

** In TheDCU, Hitler supposedly got hold of the Spear of Destiny (the lance that pierced Christ on the cross), which gave him power over any superhuman who set foot in the Nazi sphere of influence; this was used as an in-universe explanation for why the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica didn't simply march into Berlin and have the Spectre turn him into a bug and step on him. Granted, they -tried-, but one foot onto Axis territory and the heroes become just regular joes.
