Drax from 'Moonraker' is an example that is stretched really, really thin. He has absolutely no traits that could link him to Nazis. He is not nationalist (on the contrary, he's highly autarchist/anarchist), he is not socialist (he's obviously capitalist) and has no present links to Germany, Hitler, NSDAP or WWII. Sure, he believes in eugenics, but the notion of 'the master race' is hardly new, starting with ancient Israelis as 'Chosen Nation', Greeks and Romans who considered themselves better than 'barbarians' and virtually any rigid caste system in existence.

Sure, Drax is an eugenist but eugenics was pretty popular idea in the beginning of the XX century and in various forms it ws reappearing until late 1970's. So, Drax is definitely a mad scientist with God complex, but he is not a Nazi.

I don't like the name of this trope. The page content (possibly excluding the examples, haven't checked) seems to be about stalk nazi types of characters. Not wacky hijinks done by nazis.

As far as I can tell from The Other Wiki, Ernst Röhm was Straight Gay. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Main breeds of national socialists?

The article initially talks about the main breeds and categories of national socialists, but leaves out a rather small but very high-potentiel group: The archeological/historical division, Ahnenerbe, best known from the movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark". In the grand scheme of things they didn't achieve anything (or did they?), but they're extremely rich in *potential*, e.g. for a pulp era RPG campaign (or movie). And apart from potential they, or at least their general mission, score *very* high on the wackymeter indeed.

So... I think they should be mentioned in the article.

Not enough details given. Remember the target audience is a general one and may not have first hand experience of the work. Memes aren't the required details of how the trope turns up in the work. In fact we avoid memes as being overdone, usually a in-joke, tired and usually information-free.

Probably not an example if it has been Jossed.

  • Team Fortress 2: The Medic is a thinly veiled torture master/mad scientist. "Raised in Stuttgart, Germany during an era when the Hippocratic oath had been downgraded to an optional Hippocratic suggestion, the Medic considers healing a generally unintended side effect of satisfying his own morbid curiosity."
    • Word Of God has Jossed this theory. While some of his backstory does suggest some ties to Nazi science, with that "morbid curiosity" part, it may be more of a result from the regime than actually being a Nazi himself.

Tes Avery's "Blitzwolf" as a retelling of the story of the three little pigs.
