Characters: Hitler Rants
Although starting out as a series of videos of the same scene, with Hitler ranting about whatever topic comes up, Hitler Rants has since evolved into a universe of its own with more scenes from Downfall and even other films being used. The character sheet for the original film is here.

    Hitler Parodies 

Adolf Hitler

Wilhelm Burgdorf

Hermann Fegelein

Joseph Goebbels (AKA Dr. Skeletor)

Hermann Göring

  • Berserk Button: Losing his watch.
  • Big Eater: The inhabitants of the bunker make all sorts of comments about his eating habits
  • Fat Bastard: Never go between him and his food.
  • The Quiet One: As almost all of his portrayals is through one original scene alone, he never talks.
    • Beware the Quiet Ones: When he loses his watch, he gets angry enough to scare Fegelein.
    • Subverted; he does talk in a behind-the-scenes video.

Otto Gunsche

Heinrich Himmler

Alfred Jodl

  • Bald of Evil: As far as Hitler is concerned at least.
  • Commander Contrarian: His only purpose is to object to whatever comes out of Hitler's mouth. Of course, the one plan he agreed to (getting a pay raise) was the plan Hitler actually wanted him to object to.
  • Deadpan Snarker: To the point that in more recent planning videos by hitlerrantsparodies' videos, Jodl throws all respect out the window and begins the video with "What kind of stupid plan are you planning now?"
  • Only Sane Man: Often the case, particularly when Hitler's schemes are on the verge of lunacy.
  • Your Answer to Everything: Objecting

Hans Krebs

Albert Speer

Traudl Junge

    Revolution Parodies 

John Mallory

A psychotic demolitions expert from Ireland, Mallory bears a strong irrevocable grudge against Hitler for reasons unknown. Whatever it is, Mallory is determined to blow up Hitler by any means necessary, and will destroy anything else that may get in the way of his quest.

Juan Miranda

Mallory's sidekick, a bandit frequently forced to help out with whatever scheme Mallory has planned.
  • Butt Monkey: While on-screen he usually fares alright, Juan has talked about being the subject of abuse by Mallory on several occasions.
  • The Drag-Along: Juan is constantly forced to help Mallory in his latest scheme. It doesn't help that Mallory keeps hacking his Fegelbook account and posting embarrassing messages.
  • Sidekick
  • Motor Mouth: Any time he gets something to rant about, like SOPA

     U-Boat Parodies 

Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock

The Captain of U-96 and star of the U-Boat parodies, Willenbrock is a loveable rogue with an agenda of his own- to make Hitler's life as miserable as conceivably possible, and then go even farther.
  • The Captain
  • Foil: To Adolf Hitler himself- in contrast to the latter's ranting about mundane things, Willenbrock is much more level-headed and stays focused on the task at hand. Naturally he usually succeeds or at least finds ways to benefit from Hitler's misery.
  • Loveable Rogue
  • Rogue Agent

Lt. Werner

Willenbrock's master of antics. Quiet and reclusive, but extremely clever and subtle- he knows Hitler's weak spots and he'll exploit them.

Fritz Grade

  • Shop Keeper: He runs an entire antic shop that is often visited by Captain Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock and Lt. Werner whenever they need some equipment.

Captain Philip Thomsen

The navy's grand master of antics, and one of the grand masters of the antic order.
  • The Alcoholic: Thomsen has litearally one scene where he isn't drunk... and it's one of two appearances in the entire film.
  • Weapon of Mass Destruction: The aptly-named Bottle of Mass destruction, which can cause massive chaos if the cork is struck twice, which also happens to be in the hands of a drunk...
  • Rousing Speech: The most commonly-used scene with Thomsen involves him delivering a drunken speech. Often he's used to make an announcement but he's also done straight speeches and bad stand-up comedy.

    American Girl 

Felicity Merriman

  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • The Quiet One: Merriman rarely speaks in the parodies. This is mostly due to the fact that no foreign-language dubs of the film are known to be in circulation, although some of the videos use Shailene Woodley's dialogue from the German-language dub of The Descendants.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones
  • Karmic Trickster
  • The Prankster: Lissie has actually been portrayed as one alongside Elizabeth Cole in the original books (Very Funny, Elizabeth to be specific), but it isn't as extreme or as ludicrous as with her depiction in the parodies.
  • Fiery Redhead

Kit Kittredge

Samantha Parkington

  • Drama Queen
  • Rousing Speech: Most of the parodies involving Samantha typically use the "Progress in America" speech scene in the film, which originally had Parkington denounce the horrors of child labour, altering the subtitles to make it look as if she was giving a speech about Xbox Live or SOPA.

Ruthie Smithens

  • Butt Monkey - Taken to the extreme when Kit shoots her best friend for trying to inform her of useless things.
  • Girly Girl - in contrast to Kit's tomboyish personality.

Edward Merriman

     Stalin Parodies 

Joseph Stalin

  • The Chessmaster: Plots various schemes that all cause problems for Hitler.
  • The Ghost: He was occasionally mentioned in some of the original Steiner rants.

Mikhail Tukhachevsky

  • The Chessmaster: Schemes just as much as Stalin does.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Specializes in driving Hitler and other targets here, as his antics tend to be more psychologically damaging than those of other antic masters.
  • Good Parents: Despite the above, he's shown to be a loving father to his daughter Svetlana.
  • The Prankster: Though FAR colder and more ruthless than the others, including Fegelein.
  • The Stoic

Nikolai Yezhov

     Gaddaffi Parodies 


Justin Bieber

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of bad music.
  • Butt Monkey: There are literally hundreds of parodies that centre around or involve Hitler trying to kill Justin Bieber, with varying degrees of success (this is a rare time when some untergangers are willing to let Hitler win). Outside of the parodies, he's widely hated by nearly everyone, to the point where there have literally been wars declared against him.
  • Foil: Toward Kate Bush. As the universe's representation of bad music.

Kate Bush

Other Hitlers

     Mirror Parody Universe 
A parallel universe where everything (down to the spelling of characters' names) is reversed.

Hsub Etak

The mirrored equivalent of Kate Bush. Unlike her counterpart in the main Parody Universe, Hsub is extremely annoying and off-key, and widely considered one of the worst singers in the universe.

Reltih Floda

The mirrored equivalent of Adolf Hitler. Unlike his counterpart in the main Parody Universe, Reltih manages to Take Over the World and is the overlord of his world. He wants to destroy Hitler, the other Hitlers, and pretty much the whole Parody Universe.
