- Death Is Cheap/They Killed Kenny Again: Any character can be killed, but brought back with little or no explanation.
- Depending on the Writer: The characters can differ greatly between parodists.
- Flanderization: Their personality traits from the original films are exaggerated for humorous effect.
- Anti Heroes/Anti Villains: They're not exactly the most sympathetic bunch.
- Ascended Extras: A large amount of the characters used in the parodies had very limited roles in the actual movie, with some only showing up for one scene.
- Butt Monkeys: Many of them are to some extent, though Hitler gets the worst of it. Fegelein is the main exception, causing suffering rather than receiving it.
- Catch Phrase: Hitler's underlings usually greet him with:
- "Heil Hitler!"note
- "Mein Fuhrer"note
- Evil Minions: Definitely not the competent kind.
- Historical Villain Downgrade/Villain Decay: They're not even remotely as threatening as their historical counterparts.
- Laughably Evil: Whether they intend to be or not.
- Nazi Protagonists: Obviously, which combines:
- Trolls: Almost all of the characters have at least one video dedicated to them purposely annoying Hitler in some way. Hitler himself will occasionally become this as a way of getting revenge on them.
- World of Snark: Virtually every single character in the series at one point has made a snarky remark or joke while speaking in a serious tone of voice, though there are some characters that do it more often than others.

The dictator of Nazi Germany. Due to the Battle of Berlin (which is still being fought into the present day), Hitler is stuck inside the Fuhrerbunker beneath the Reich Chancellery. He is constantly enraged by every problem, both big and small, and always has a furious rant about something.
- 0% Approval Rating: According to this video, where Gunsche flat-out informs him that he has this.
- Adaptational Heroism: Commits far fewer atrocities, admits to not being anti-Semitic (which gets him mocked by Inglourious!Hitler), and seems content to spend most of his time pulling pranks, dealing with internal bunker drama, and commenting on pop-culture. Of course, he's still a Villain Protagonist.
- Anti-Hero/Anti-Villain: While he's not really a hero, he also doesn't seem to be as evil as the real Hitler.
- Arch-Enemy: Fegelein, Himmler, Stalin, alternate versions of himself, among many other people.
- Asshole Victim: Due to being a Jerkass Villain Protagonist, he does deserve at least some of his problems. Though some might actually feel sorry for him when Fegelein's antics go too far.
- Authority in Name Only: Some videos imply that Hitler isn't much of a dictator or politician anymore, only exerting control over the Fuhrerbunker and the remnants of his severely weakened military. Sometimes he can even be seen working low-wage jobs or committing petty crimes (and even the police will still chase after him).
- Or this could be averted, with Hitler still being an active (but incompetent) national leader and businessman.
- Bad Boss/Mean Boss: He often takes out his anger on his military officers; especially (but not limited to) Jodl, Grawitz, and Gunsche.
- Berserk Button: EVERYTHING! He has a meltdown over any problem facing him, whether it's important or trivial. It ranges from:
- Hearing bad news about current events—politics, sports, media, pop culture, etc.
- Being informed that any of his plans for the day have failed.
- The stress caused by his annoying staff members—especially Fegelein's antics, Jodl's objections, Gunsche's informing, etc.
- Or even the Downfall parodies themselves. Hitler hates being ridiculed by this Internet meme, and despises Untergangers (the YouTubers who make these parodies).
- Big Bad: Depending on the Writer, Hitler plays this role while Fegelein is portrayed as the hero.
- Big "NO!": At times, when he is either informed of unfortunate news, or falls prey to someone's antic(s).
- Born Unlucky/Butt Monkey/Chew Toy/Cosmic Plaything: Almost nothing ever goes right for him. When Hitler actually succeeds at something, it comes off as a genuine surprise.
- Catch Phrase: He has a lot of catch phrases, often partially or fully mistranslated from the original German. They include, but are not limited to:
- Cloudcuckoolander: Probably because of all the craziness around him, Hitler's own sanity seems to be very weak. Some of his plans and rants can be very bizarre.
- Companion Cube:
- His desk, which is always ready to be banged three times with his fist, whenever he rants about Fegelein.
- His office door can also occasionally come along with him on his journeys.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: In videos by hitlerrantsparodies, Adolf Hitler controls a (government-owned) technology corporation called Reich Corp, which makes everything from computers to weaponry.
- Deadpan Snarker: He has a penchant for fiery insults and sarcasm, though he's usually not so deadpan about it.
- The Determinator: Nothing will stop Hitler from trying to find and kill Fegelein, no matter how many times he fails.
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Hitler never holds back on his insults even in the presence of super-powerful beings, including (but not limited to) a ghost girl, Darth Vader, Slender Man, Mega Mario, Godzilla, theDevil, himself, and even God!
- Disproportionate Retribution: If Hitler is out to get someone who isn't Fegelein, it'll usually be with lethal force and for a very petty reason.
- Hitler Rants Parodies has implied that the war between Germany and the Soviet Union in his timeline started entirely over Stalin calling Hitler a dumbass. Once.
- The Dog Bites Back: Trolls his minions back after being trolled by them, starting with Jodl.
- Drama King: In the Original Bunker Scenes alone, he melts down over even the most trivial inconveniences imaginable.
- Dream Weaver: Gets the ability to lucid dream in one video, where he dreams himself killing Fegelein and scoring with Megan Fox, only for Gunsche to suddenly wake him up.
- Embarrassing Nickname: "Dolfy", "Shitler", and "Mein Failüre".
- Enraged by Idiocy: Um, yeah.
- Even Evil Has Standards: It turns out that the Downfall Hitler isn't racist or homophobic like other Hitlers (which gets him mocked by Inglorious Basterds Hitler).
- Evil Sorcerer: At one point when he wields the Wand of Doom.
- Evil Versus Evil: Hitler's many conflicts with antic masters, other dictators, other Nazis, and even other Hitlers!
- Fourth-Wall Observer: Hitler knows that he's the star of a YouTube meme that mocks him, and he's always unhappy about it.
- Freak Out: Upon learning Darth Vader is about to come.
- A Führer and His Desk: This video reveals that Hitler's desk has been a big part of his life since his childhood, which is why he is seen with it almost everywhere.
- General Failure: His plans fail and backfire on him almost all the time, whether to due to Hitler's own stubborn foolishness, or someone else accidentally or intentionally sabotaging them.
- The Grinch: He mimics the trope namer in this video.
- Hair-Trigger Temper/Unstoppable Rage: All the damn time. This is why he's such a Drama King.
- Hitler in His Bunker: Plans a lot, but he remains in the bunker most of the time while his officers carry out his work.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Almost all of his attempts at antics end up backfiring on him, such as when his own magic wand ended up being used against him and when he accidentally traps himself in a time loop, a fate he had intended for Fegelein.
- Humiliation Conga: A lot of times, due to Fegelein's antics, bad luck, or a combination of both.
- Hypocritical Humor: Calls out on the Angry German Kid for being crazy, not that Hitler himself is any different from him.
- Improbable Weapon User: Used a phone one time in an attempt to kill Fegelein. Needless to say, the latter comes back by the end of it.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Though how (un)sympathetic he is will vary depending on the episode.
- Jerkass: Not surprisingly, during his angry rants, he's prone to insulting people around him.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Nobody, good or bad, sane or insane, would want to have all his problems. And when he rants about something important rather than trivial, he can raise some good points.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold/Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: It varies depending on how sympathetic he's supposed to be.
- Large Ham: Very much in the same way as portrayed in the original film.
- No Indoor Voice: All of his ranting and yelling, which exceeds any calm dialogue he has.
- Laughably Evil: Most of the humor is derived from Hitler's anger. However he hates being laughed at.
- Mall Santa: Gets a seasonal job as one in this video. He doesn't exactly enjoy it.
- Mirror Monster: Disguised himself as Bloody Mary once to get revenge on Goebbels for "taking the last Hitler Youth cookie".
- Nazi Protagonist: Duh.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: He's survived multiple gunshot wounds (well, except in The Assassination Of Hitler), explosions, being exposed multiple times to radiation, massive burns, blunt force trauma injuries (from having stuff thrown at him, if not fall on his head), and more other injuries that can kill a regular dude.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Hitler may epically fail most of the time, though if he was much more lucky, he would be a force to be reckoned with. Also, Downfall Hitler manages to win the War of the Hitlers, killing some alternate universe Hitlers along the way.
- One of Us: In an in-universe instance, Hitler is depicted as being a big fan of video games, Game of Thrones, Frozen, My Little Pony, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Star Trek, Star Wars... basically everything.
- Patriotic Fervor: He roots for Germany to win The World Cup 2014. They succeeded and there was much rejoicing (genuinely).
- The Pen Is Mightier: Hitler's Weapon of Choice is the "Pencil of Doom and Mass Destruction", a magically/technologically-advanced pencil which when thrown, can do anything from making people fall down to blowing up entire planets. While capable of mass killings, Hitler mostly uses it to cause funny falls or assassination attempts.
- Physical God: Yep. Though still inferior to Fegelein.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Depending on the Writer, he's either a bigot like he was in real life, or he isn't.
- Psychopathic Manchild/Serious Business: To name a couple examples, get his Xbox Live account banned, or get him a Wii instead of a PlayStation 3 for Christmas, and he'll rant up a storm.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Whips out profane words more than any other character.
- Surrounded by Idiots: Sure, he's a Psychopathic Manchild, but it's hard to argue with a lot of the stupidity that goes on inside the bunker.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: Overlaps with The Dog Bites Back, when he gets everyone back, for all of the misery he's been through.
- "Hitler and Germany's victory in the World Cup 2014 Final": Germany being the champion, also definitely counts, with Hitler rooting for his own nation while Fegelein was trying to undermine his nation just for a chance to pull an antic on Hitler, and for once Hitler is proven victorious.
- Unsportsmanlike Gloating:
- Is overjoyed with Germany's victory in the 2014 World Cup Finals, trolling Fegelein over it for good measure, and to accentuate the point that this is one of the rare moments that Hitler has defeated Fegelein at anything.
- And again when he defeats Fegelein in Metal Gear Solid. Twice.
- Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist
- Villain Decay: Obviously the real Hitler was a mass-murdering dictator, however the parody Hitler seems more like a cartoonish supervillain by comparison.
- Amusingly, he'll often accuse Hitlers from other movies (or even the Real Life Hitler!) of this.
- Villain Protagonist: Well... he's Hitler after all.
- Villainous Breakdown: Hitler has one at least once per video, with every rant he acts as though the world is ending. But his staff treat it as a normal occurrence.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Hitler rarely gets along with his bunker staff, although (un)fortunately, they're pretty much the closest thing he has to being a group of friends. They often have parties and social events together, though their loyalty is at best questionable.
- Weapon of Choice: Somehow, his pencil. Nicknamed the "Pencil of Doom and Mass Destruction", by simply banging it into his table, it is used to making a cat fall from a bookshelf up to causing the destruction of Alderaan.
- Your Answer to Everything: Ranting.
An SS officer and "Master of Antics", a prankster/trickster who enjoys harassing Hitler and others. He is the Fuhrer's sneaky arch-enemy, constantly evading punishment for his actions.
- Achilles' Heel: Computers apparently, according to this video.
- Adaptational Villainy: In Downfall and in real life, Fegelein was only an assistant to Himmler and got shot for desertion upon trying to leave the bunker. In the Internet videos, he's an outright Reality Warper. The real life Fegelein did commit serious war crimes though.
- Ambiguously Human: The fact that he can survive and/or come back from just about anything, combined with how absurd some of his antics are, raises some serious questions...
- Big Bad: The most recurring antagonist, though he's just as much of a villain as Hitler is.
- Big Good: Plays this role in Der Disneygang, where he leads the Disney characters in a rebellion to retake Disneyland from Hitler and the Nazi's.
- The Casanova/Handsome Lech/Really Gets Around: He's often shown to be a notorious sexual pervert who flirts with any woman he encounters, including Eva (which in one parody, he admitted to be better than Gretl), Traudl, Gerda, and an unnamed redheaded mistress in what appears to be a brothel, right before Peter Hogl arrests him. It's only Magda whom he has no interest in amongst the female cast.
- Catch Phrase: "Wie bitte?"note
- Characterization Marches On: In many of the earlier videos, Fegelein was The Ghost with Hitler ranting about finding upon suffering from another one of his antics. Fegelein eventually made it into the later videos where he would be impossible for Hitler and the staff to find despite being Hidden in Plain Sight. Nowadays, he (or any versions of him played by Thomas Kretschmann) is actively conversing with the rest of the cast.
- Deadpan Snarker: He just loves to smugly mock Hitler and other people during his antics.
- Depending on the Writer: Whether Fegelein is some kind of immortal wizard or not will vary. There's also a few parodists who are willing to have Fegelein punished.
- Enemy Mine: Despite constantly pulling antics to Hitler, he has worked with Hitler several times; like in the "War of the Hitlers", or when Hitler tries to eliminate the entire Westboro Baptist Church.
- Faux Affably Evil: He maintains a playful attitude while he gleefully ruins Hitler's life.
- Hero Antagonist: Subverted - while his antics only target Hitler, and Those Wacky Nazis making up his inner circle, the only reason he does it is to piss Hitler off (without trying to justify it as "Kick the Son of a Bitch"), and his antics range from over-the-top to downright sadistic.
- Implacable Man: Nothing can stop Fegelein from committing antics on Hitler. See Joker Immunity and Nigh-Invulnerability below.
- In-Series Nickname: "F-Man" and "Fegel", which is often used as a prefix for anything related to Fegelein.
- Joker Immunity: Big time. He's even been compared to the Joker.
- The Mole: In the "War of the Hitlers" series, he is shown defecting to the side of the Real Life Hitler, but it's later revealed that he only defected to the enemy's side just so he could find the location of their secret superweapon and give that information to Downfall Hitler.
- Nigh-Invulnerability/Unexplained Recovery: The few times Fegelein has been caught and even killed, he comes back like nothing ever happened. It's been taken to its extreme a few times. Hitler did once try to have Göring eat Fegelein, but it failed.
- Obnoxious In-Laws: Hitler and Fegelein are brothers-in-law, as Fegelein is married to Eva's sister Gretl. note
- Pay Evil unto Evil: The only reason he can be treated as a remotely heroic character is because the people he are doing it to are Acceptable Political Targets.
- The Prankster/The Trickster/Troll: Or "Antic Master" as he prefers to be called. His antics range from mundane pranks to criminal acts to surreal sorcery. He often torments Hitler and the other Nazis, much to their dismay.
- Reality Warper/The Omnipotent: His trickster powers enable him to do so; he can even feign death and reappear to torment Hitler.
- Sadist: He enjoys annoying and tormenting people For The Lulz.
- Smug Snake
- Sore Loser: Does not take Germany's victory in the 2014 World Cup Final well, to the point that he discourages Eva from celebrating the occasion.

- Captain Obvious: Gunsche often informs Hitler of obvious things, such as that he is Hitler.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Some of the events that he informs Hitler about can be very bizarre.
- Depending on the Writer: Gunsche may be smarter than he seems to be, and may even be a double agent working for an enemy of Hitler, such as Fegelein or the Space Nazis; in HRP's "Assassination of Hitler" series, he murders Hitler on behalf of the aforementioned Space Nazis, but this is only in HRP's timeline.
- The Ditz: He isn't very bright, acting as a typical stupid minion. Because of this, he fails to find Fegelein even when he's staying in the bunker.

- Messenger: His main role in the bunker.
- The Quiet One: Hardly talks, and the only times he does so is informing or asking Hitler of various things at his office.

- Butt Monkey: He gets no respect from Hitler due to both his baldness and objections. Sometimes he's even the butt of other people's jokes and insults.

- Embarrassing Nickname: "Baldy", "Mr. Clean", "Baldilocks", "Dr. Evil Rip-Off", "Hairless Ape", "Uncle Fester", "Bald Fuck", and "Bald Virgin".
- Not So Above It All: While often the Only Sane Man, it seems that Jodl objects just for the sake of being disagreeable, which may make him as eccentric as the other Nazis in the Fuhrerbunker. He'll also object for reasons that make no sense at all, or are just petty and/or childish.
- Only Sane Man: Often the case, particularly when Hitler's schemes are on the verge of lunacy.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: He wears three different disguises when he tries to be a successor as the Führer. None of them fool Hitler.

- Your Answer to Everything: Objecting.

- Trigger Happy: He always unsuccessfully attempts to shoot Hans Fritzsche (if not other characters like Hitler, Fegelein or Justin Bieber).

- Mondegreen: The German word for "fish" is "Fisch" and pronounced similarly to English. However, that is not the word he says. It's Bewegungsunfähig (immobilised or unable to move). However, Krebs says it so obscurely and rapidly that it ends up causing a "ssh" sound thus it ends up as Bewegungsunfish.
- Mr. Exposition: Usually the one to explain the situation at hand.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: In one scene, where one of Goebbels' children bumps into him. Parodied henceforth and in some lengthened versions of the Bunker Jokes fused with Hewel and other drunks laughing.
- Those Two Bad Guys: With Burgdorf, as lovers.
- Tranquil Fury: Slips into this when negotiating with Chuikov, leveling a Death Glare while all but hissing in Russian.

An SS general, and Fegelein's mentor in antics.
- Depending on the Writer: Though most Untergangers make him an ally of Fegelein, hitlerrantsparodies' version seems to be loyal to Hitler (though he simply refuses to do the weird tasks that the Fuhrer gives him, instead asking Walther Hewel to do them).
- Faking the Dead: Does this in the "War of the Hitlers" series in his plans to get the Allies to supply reinforcements.

- Fat Bastard/Fat Idiot/Villainous Glutton: He is extremely obese and focuses on nothing excepting eating his food (and stealing others' food as well).

- Your Answer to Everything: Eating.
