** Inverted with Mussolini and Mosely, who in our timeline switched from supporting socialistic positions to becoming fascists by adopting the national struggle instead of the class struggle. In Kaiserreich, the two and other would-be fascists remain left wing syndicalists.

** T.E. Lawrence of [[Film/LawrenceOfArabia Arabian]] fame is still living in the Union of Britain, having failed to die in a 1935 motorcycle accident as he historically did, and will volunteer to be sent into the Kaiserreich to [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters raise his own particular brand of chaos]] on the outbreak of war.

He may also rise to power should the military need to step in to restore order. [[spoiler: If so, he stands a slightly-less-than-even chance of revealing his monarchist sympathies and using [[MoleInCharge his position as interim chairman]] to organize a mass Royalist uprising.]]

** UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill: A possible minister for the Enente-liberated Britain, also if Tsarist Russia decides to join the Entente, Churchill will be sent to Russia as an foreign minister.

** Boris Savinkov (historically a Right-SR who ran its Combat Organization/Terror Brigade) is the leader of the most extreme national populist faction in Russia that could take power with Kerensky's death, and arguably takes over the role that Hitler and Mussolini filled in OTL -- especially since rather than taking power ''directly'' he gets brought in to stabilise a government headed by an old general and assumes full power when the general dies.

** [[UsefulNotes/TheMexicanRevolution Pancho Villa]] remains alive and active in Mexico, leading one of the major factions of Syndicalist Mexico alongside Zapata, and he may come to lead all of Mexico depending on how events pan out.



*** A Pu Yi who is defeated over the course of the game can even be restored a ''second'' time by the Japanese should he flee the Qing Empire.



* VideogameCrueltyPotential: Almost more than actual HeartsOfIron. Want to re-enserf the peasantry under a new Russian Empire or create a semi-Fascist state out of the ruins of Russia? Create a fully dictatorial Totalist or Corporatist regime in America or thrust it under the rule of a military Junta trampling on constitutional rights? Execute protesters and those who oppose your reign? Make the civil wars of our timeline ''[[FromBadToWorse even worse?]]'' [[AndZoidberg And not allow women to vote?]] Then come and play Kaiserreich!

*** For extra irony, if the Entente declares war on Germany and not the Syndicalists, he will warn Russia that an "Iron curtain will fall over Germany if the Syndicalists win".

''Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg'' is a popular ''VideoGame/HeartsOfIronII'', ''Darkest Hour'' and ''Hearts of Iron IV'' GameMod that is set in an alternate timeline where the Central Powers win UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. Currently in 1.4 beta for Hearts of Iron II, 1.8 beta for ''Darkest Hour'' and 0.1 Alpha for Hearts of Iron IV, Kaiserreich takes many of the same nations in a different direction, while introducing dozens of new nations, ministers and leaders.

** Wrangel's replacement in version 1.8, Boris Savinkov, is a even more blatant Hitler analogy then pre-1.8 Wrangel or Codreanu. He is invited into power by Kornilov as prime minister(much like Hitler was invited into power by Hindenburg as Chancellor) and assumes full power when the general dies by combining the positions of president and prime minister. He also controls ultranationalist paramilitary groups, and can set up his own concentration camps in Siberia.

** In the Second American Civil War, if things are going really badly for both the [[CommieLand CSA]] and [[DeepSouth AUS]], it is possible for Reed and Long to join in a desperate alliance against the Federal government, [[{{Realpolitik}} despite them being on the complete opposite end of the political spectrum]], and the leaders of both factions [[ArchEnemy absolutely hating the other on both an ideological and personal level]]. As one would expect, the alliance will fall apart [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness the moment the USA is defeated]].

* EvilVersusEvil: Through the game runs on GreyAndGreyMorality, it is possible, depending on how the game is played, for it to end with a final showdown between [[PuttingOnTheReich Wranglite Russia]] or Militaristic Japan and it's allies and puppet states comprised of repressive [[ANaziByAnyOtherName National Populist/Corporatism/Pseudo-Fascist/Ultranationalist]] regimes versus an alliance of equally repressive Totalist Socialist nations. Its also possible to have an authoritarian Entente consisting of Britain ruled by an absolute monarch, Canada, national-populist Australasia, Junta-run US and other allies or puppet go up against Mitteleuropa lead by an National populist puppets and an absolute monarchist Imperial Germany.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Baron Wrangel. In RealLife he was one of the major White Army Commanders and actually one of the moderate and tolerant ones, here he is the leader of a autocratic faction that may take power upon Kerensky's death, and can even declare himself as a new Czar.

Later versions downgraded him from a potential fascist analogue to the potential leader of a mundane military junta, though he can even still declare himself as a new Czar.

*** Germany can also do this as a way of more efficiently administrating its now vastly-expanded colonial empire, making each of its colonies puppet kingdoms that essentially run their own affairs but are vassals of Germany.
