* On ''WesternAnimation/ArcherDangerIsland'', Nazi technology in 1939 includes MiniMecha. Subverted somewhat in that this is really just a dream while Archer is having AdventuresInComaLand.


* There is a small south american cult which basically combines this with Ghostapo. They believe that Hitler was the reincarnation of Kalki, the hindu god of destruction and after the second world war, Hitler fled with a fleet of Reichsflugscheiben to a secret Nazi base on the north pole and is now living inside the earth, to wait til the apocalypse, when he will return to the surface and conquer the world with Nazi super science. And according to them, all the nazi super science was handed over to them by aliens.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intramedullary_rod intramedullary rod]], essentially a titanium rod that works like a cast to align and heal broken limbs, albeit inside the bones, was pioneered by a German doctor who field tested the surgical procedure on Army soldiers around 1939. Countless lives have been saved and soldiers can now go back into battle faster because its main advantage was that it is faster at promoting healing than a cast.

While no such thing would actually happen without serious alterations to the personalities of Hitler and most of the German high command, [[note]]their Air Ministry, the RLM, in particular had roughly the same attitude towards research projects that a magpie would have in a tinfoil factory,[[/note]] there is some historical precedent. Nazi Germany ''was'' the first to create practical versions of numerous weapons and [[UsefulNotes/TheSpaceRace progressed enough in rocketry]] to injure or kill almost 100,000 British people with a few thousand rockets, and courtesy of the USA's ''Operation Paperclip'' earned nearly two thousand German [[HerrDoktor scientists (such as Wernher Von Braun)]] free passports to the US once the war was over [[KarmaHoudini along with immunity from prosecution]] for extensively using slave labour and working thousands of them to death. Many late-war experimental weapons were touted as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wunderwaffen Wunderwaffen,]] ([[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord lit. 'wonder weapons']]) that would enable the besieged Germans to turn the tide of the war and defeat the Allies or at least negotiate for peace. Given the fact that Nazis from the frontline troops all the way to the top of the command chain were [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug_policy_of_the_Third_Reich taking drugs]] it's no real surprise that some of the approved weapon ideas were...[[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs unconventional]].

* In Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}, Earth-X is unique in TheMultiverse in that, in that world's history, the Nazis developed atomic weapons first and won UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo. There's a reason anyone, who is aware of the multiverse, tends to count the number of Earths as [[ArcNumber 52]], not 53, ignoring Earth-X (and not number it).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/WonderWoman'': In "Wonder Woman vs Gargantua" the Nazis had [[LatexPerfection a perfect Wonder Woman mask]] and advanced animal training techniques. In "The Last of the Two Dollar Bills" the Nazi plastic surgeon transforms two spies into perfect replicas of their targets in two weeks.


* ''VideoGame/DinoDDay'' is kind of an odd example. Rather than create supertechnology for combat, the created super-advanced cloning technology and resurrected Dinosaurs... then put giant guns on them.

* This is the plot of James Hogan's ''The Proteus Operation.'' In the untampered history, Hitler fell into obscurity after the Beer-Hall Putsch, ushering in a world of equality, prosperity, and peace, but corrupt future plutocrats attempted to establish an empire for themselves by engineering a Nazi victory, then traveling in time to rule the Nazi-conquered Earth. Due to their tampering, the Nazis won WWII in 1942 using nuclear bombs. The book involves time-travelers seeking to undo this. They only manage to partially succeed, resulting in what is heavily implied to be our actual history.

Contrast UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons, which is about the weapons they had in RealLife. See also {{Ghostapo}}, where Nazis use super-demonry rather than (or ''[[{{Magitek}} combined with]]'') super-science; and SovietSuperscience, when it's the DirtyCommies showing up with giant robots and spaceships. Compare HistoricalVillainUpgrade. Subtrope of WeirdHistoricalWar.

Added DiffLines:

* Technology in ''Anime/IzettaTheLastWitch'' is roughly equivalent to the real-world 1940s, except for the rogue nation of [[ANaziByAnyOtherName "Germania"]] which has, among other things, advanced cloning technology and {{magitek}} superweapons.


* ''ComicBook/AllStarSquadron'' and the 80s ''ComicBook/JusticSocietyOfAmerica'' comics were about the superhero teams fighting the Nazis and Imperial Japan, who had superweapons and supervillains at their disposal. To keep Hitler from being defeated before he was in real life, he also had the Spear of Destiny, which acted as a mind control device for any superhero in Axis territory.
