* The CreepyPasta ''Cry of the Revenant'' is about a squad of American GI's (plus one SS defector) fighting an ancient, undead aryan (the godlike people who settled in what is now germany in nazi mythology) warrior who was mighty pissed off about being ressurrected by nazi wizards.


* Contested Ground Studios ''Cold City'' is set in Berlin in 1950, after the Second World War went weird. [[StupidJetpackHitler Twisted technology]] and occult research have made Lovecraftian and other horrors real, so the U-bahn tunnels being full of failed [[SuperSoldier super-soldier]] experiments, [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]] and [[EldritchAbomination eldritch abominations]] can be the least of your worries. Given that the party can consist of any combination of American, British, German, French and Russian personnel, that list of worries includes ''each other''.
* In ''Night's Black Agents'', Nazis are mentioned repeatedly in the setting-building chapter as a convenient option for where a given form of vampire came from.

* The Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom story ''Literature/VivereMilitareEst'' by rvbomally has, as its PointOfDivergence, the Nazis and UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan unleashing preternatural weaponry in Europe and the Pacific in 1945, fueled by {{human sacrifice}}s in the form of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust and Unit 731. This brings them BackFromTheBrink and allows them to start pushing back; the only thing stopping their renewed conquests is when the Allies deploy preternatural weaponry of their own, culminating in a "despoiler bomb" dropped on Kyoto that renders the city an uninhabitable EldritchLocation. By 2015, the world is locked in a multi-sided UsefulNotes/ColdWar between the Anglo-American alliance (with France as a stubbornly independent supporter), the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and Imperial Japan, all of whom have lunar colonies and are armed with enough preternatural weaponry to destroy the fabric of reality around Earth, while many parts of the world (Poland, India, New Zealand, a vast swath of Africa) have gone to hell in a handbasket thanks to the occult run amok. And of course, there's the 'rogue state' of North Italy, run by surviving [[UsefulNotes/FascistItaly fascist diehards]] that even the Germans (who have mellowed out considerably) are now embarrassed by, serving as a combination of this trope and UsefulNotes/NorthKorea.

It's specifically mentioned that the ultimate fate of Adolf Hitler and his corpse, if he died at all, is unknown and widely disputed, with multiple Nazi splinter cults claiming to have cloned Hitler, [[BrainUploading uploaded his brain and/or soul]] into a computer, or contacted his spirit; needless to say, these claims do not amuse the actual NSDAP in Germany, which has mellowed out considerably since 1945 (now, it's a run-of-the-mill bureaucratic dictatorship that treats Hitler the way our world's [[RedChina PRC]] treats UsefulNotes/MaoZedong -- "yeah, he was our nation's founder, but don't bring up all the other stuff he did") and sees them all as challenges to their leadership. And of course, there's the 'rogue state' of North Italy, run by surviving [[UsefulNotes/FascistItaly fascist diehards]] that even the Germans (who have mellowed out considerably) are now embarrassed by, serving as a combination of this trope and UsefulNotes/NorthKorea.

** However, Sabaton also attributes supernatural qualities to a Soviet bomb squadron, the ''Night Witches''.

* ''VisualNovel/DiesIrae'' features a group of immortal, magically enhanced Nazis lead by the infamous hangman of the Third Reich, UsefulNotes/ReinhardHeydrich carrying the title of [[{{Faust}} Mephistopheles]] while Karl Ernst Krafft is a genuine magician having taught them all these secrets, and all seek to have a wish granted by sacrificing the people in Suwahara City. [[spoiler:It ends with (depending on route) Reinhard succeeding with the sacrifice and ascending to become a God while Krafft is revealed to in reality be the {{God}} of the universe, Mercurius, acting under alias]]. Amusingly, for the most part they are Nazis InNameOnly with most of the members just being a ragtag bunch that, in some cases quite literally, where just taken off the street.

* In RealLife the Nazi most interested in the occult was Heinrich Himmler, while Hitler personally had very little interest in the subject, mostly seeing the dramatic and political implications of secret societies, and banning all that didn't support his reign. While he admired the Teutonic myths, his intention was not to replace Christianity with a dead religion, but to get the state to absorb all the properties of a religion, much like the Soviet Union had done, at least for starters - [[AlternateHistory one can only speculate]] what would have followed if he had won, or WWII had ended in a stalemate.

Some state papers the Allies discovered after the fall of Berlin discussed either "Aryanizing" Christianity or completely replacing it with a new religion centered around Hitler, whom the Nazi Party would proclaim the Germanic messiah.

* ''VideoGame/NaziZombies'', which is a Nazi zombie minigame.

to:

* ''VideoGame/NaziZombies'', ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyZombies'' started out as this, back in the ''World at War'' era of Zombies. Back when it was Nazi Zombies, the aforementioned undead were the result of genetic experiments from the Germans with Element 115 (with a light smattering of otherworldly possession and corruption on the side) with the trope coming into effect with the revelation of the zombies being controlled by a little German girl within the Aether. A little girl one Edward Richtofen would swap minds with and control the zombies himself, putting this trope into ''full'' effect. This would continue on until the last map of ''Black Ops II'', which is would reset the worlds and instead cast the zombies as the minions of a group of extradimensional Lovecraftian beings known as the Apothicons, removing the trope entirely.
**Later iterations of the Zombies submode also often disregard these origins[[note]]Exo Zombies are the result of a chemical weapon gone wrong, while Infinite Warfare Zombies are just enemies in a set of films - demonically enhanced films, but films nevertheless[[/note]]. That is, until Sledgehammer Games' [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyWWII
Nazi zombie minigame.Zombies]] ([[NamesTheSame yep, the same name]]) took the undead to their roots once more, casting them as experiments of the Nazis and powered by an eldritch energy known as Geistkraft, sourced from the legendary sword of Frederick Barbarossa.
