If I may make a suggestion, maybe replace the current picture with a side by side comparison picture of the Triumph of the Will Army Picture and the Killzone Helghast Picture. The comment section isn't letting me post the picture.

Maybe you should start a conversation here if you want to suggest an image.

'Mummy: The Tomb of Dragon Emperor' entry is incorrect. General Yang and his troops wear historically accurate uniforms of the Chinese Nationalist Army. And given the colours used (tan-green), they are much closer to American or British uniforms of the period.

Would the US Army's PASGT helmets count for real life?

Does anyone else think that the Triumph of the Will Homage Shot should get its own trope?

Entry concerning Matt Horner from 'Starcraft II' seems very far-fetched. Gaudy green-and-yellow attire with wide epaulettes and golden Bling of War is hardly reminiscent of Nazi uniforms . It actually resembles the uniform of 19th century Russian hussar officer. Definitely more 'regal and distinguished' than 'ruthless and evil'. Sure, one can argue that 'Russian Empire was not very nice' but this could be said about any empire of this period. This trope is based on the entities that are considered notoriously 'evil', like the Third Reich of Soviet Union.

I agree it looks nothing like a German or Soviet uniform. But to the ignorant masses, any severely militaristic-looking uniform is automatically considered "Nazi."

considering his uniform is most reminiscient of a united states civil war union uniform, I think one of those little extra commentaries is in order to mention that's what it looks like

maybe it's reminiscient of a military junta's uniform even, but I just looked up "union uniform" on the other wiki, and google imaged it, and that's by far the most similar looking thing around

putting on the reich is not what he's about in the slightest, so maybe it should be called an inversion, unless you think the confederates were the democratic ones and lincoln was a villain with good publicity

oh and, apparently it's derived from the french military uniform, and considering SC's universe is america in space, I think it's safe to say it's not putting on the reich

I don't understand what the Doonesbury reference under "Newspaper Comics" is doing here. Nothing about Nazis or Nazi imagery, unless you think a cowboy hat or Roman helmet qualifies. If nobody can think of a reason to keep that, I'm going to cut it.

Since nobody leaped to defend it, I went ahead and zapped it.

Unknown Troper: As was suggested in the older discussion, this trope should be renamed to "Putting On The Fritz", just because it rhymes better.
