* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' Literature/PastDoctorAdventures novel ''The Shadow in the Glass'', [[spoiler:the Sixth Doctor and the Brigadier discover a Fourth Reich led by Hitler's son using alien technology (albeit alien technology that the Nazis have mistaken for a supernatural artefact), but this trope is defied as the Doctor proclaims that even Hitler Junior knows that there is no place in the modern world for his father's philosophy, justifying why he continues to hide away rather than mount his new campaign even though he is now the same age as his father was when Hitler committed suicide]].


On a practical level, [[OurClonesAreIdentical cloning Hitler]] ([[YouClonedHitler a favorite method]]) would likely result in a completely different person who just so happened to look like Hitler. And in fact, a man who looked like Hitler would probably have ''less'' of a chance to end up in a position of power in today's world than just about anyone else. Though to be fair, most people probably wouldn't even recognize Hitler without the beard. WeDidntStartTheFuhrer, meanwhile, is a better way to [[JustifiedTrope justify this trope]] by making Hitler a literal force of evil rather than rolling with the ironic premise that it's something in the genes.

* Averted in the non-canon ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' movie ''Fusion Reborn''. A reincarnated Hitler marching through the streets of a major city at the head of a line of Panzers is played for comic relief, not horror, and is easily defeated by a couple of children. It's the reincarnated Freeza that's treated as a problem... [[CurbStompBattle for about three seconds]].

* In ''Literature/TheBoysFromBrazil'', [[spoiler:not only has Hitler been cloned many times over, but efforts are being made to make the clones' lives more like that of young Adolfs for example, by killing the clones' fathers when the clones are the age that Hitler was when his father died]].

* An episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' sees Hitler's ghost inspire and direct a young American neo-Nazi, eventually driving him to [[spoiler:kill a friend to make a martyr for his cause, and later murder an elderly Jewish man.]] At the end of the episode, Hitler's spectral shadow glides along a wall, seeking a new apprentice, as the narration proceeds to inform the audience that [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil as long as bigotry and racism exist, Hitler will always be alive.]]
* Deconstructed in ''Kessler'' (the sequel to ''Series/SecretArmy''). Although there's concern throughout the series that Kessler could use his [[NaziGold ill-gotten gains]] for some sort of Nazi renaissance, his fellow war criminals scoff at the idea, one draping a Nazi flag on Kessler. "Here, cover yourself with glory!" After discovering his fanatical daughter has been killed (after being mistaken for the NaziHunter protagonists) Kessler lies down on the flag and shoots himself.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin'', where Hitler is resurrected via the [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve power of rumors]] and a conspiracy theory suggesting he escaped instead of committing suicide and attempts to take over the world. [[spoiler: This Hitler turns out to be fake, though. He also turns out to be none other than [[Creator/HPLovecraft Nyarlatothep]] himself.

** ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheOldBlood'' has a note from a man who writes about an encounter with Hitler, mentioning Hitler's hand being unnaturally cold and noticing a distinct rotting smell about him - the implication being that BJ killed him as in ''[=Wolf3D=]'', and the Nazis simply resurrected him afterwards.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' a group of villains who want to resurrect Hitler (through cloning, and a dog reincarnation of him) are featured in the first episode of season four. It's {{played for laughs}}, of course. Brock kills the dog, then remarks that he can check one more thing off the list of cool stuff he never thought he'd get to do.

Maybe there's some nutjob who hasn't given up on the idea of the Third Reich, the Aryan Nation, the Thule Society or any one of the other things Hitler had a hand in, or maybe they're just doing it ForTheEvulz, but bringing back Hitler for the express purpose of having him take over the world is a recurring villainous plot in fiction, and is often treated as synonymous with opening the gates of Hell and letting {{Satan}} [[TheLegionsOfHell and his minions run free]] or summoning down one of [[Creator/HPLovecraft H. P. Lovecraft]]'s many {{Eldritch Abomination}}s to destroy the minds of all mankind - that is, TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* The cult of the Nazis who fled to Latin America in ''Anime/VaticanMiracleExaminer'' plays this trope in a rather crazy way using [[spoiler: Hitler's sperm, frozen in a cryocamera, to impregnate young girls and get "Hitler's son" (in a funny way considering him a reincarnation of the "father"), all under the guidance of Satan-- who is actually a mass hallucination from the drugs they have taken.]]
