"Hitler had become a Super Saiyan."

Goku/Anne Frank: Until the End of Time is an infamous shipping fanfic which crosses over Dragon Ball Z and Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl (yes, the actual real-world diary of a young Holocaust victim). Son Goku travels to the past into Anne's room, they fall in love, Goku saves her from Nazis and has a grand battle with Adolf Hitler himself. Yeah, it's that kind of fic.

Part 1 can be read here, Part 2 here.

It was written sometime in 2003 or 2004 by "gofer-chan", who supposedly wrote it as a Stealth Parody Troll Fic after hearing of the existence of actual, serious Anne Frank fanfiction.

An animated adaptation was created in 2015 by MugiMikey.

You came here expecting to find a madman, but instead, you found these TROPES!

  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Goku becoming a "Super Ultra Power Saiyan" to take down Hitler once and for all.
  • Artistic License – Religion: At the end, Anne and Goku are married by "the reverend", despite the fact that Anne is Jewish and Goku presumably isn't a Christian either. This is lampshaded in MukiMikey's animated adaptation, where Goku asks why they're having a Christian wedding before shrugging and deciding to roll with it.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Although you could probably apply this to any DBZ character that isn't Goku, one particular example that stands out is Chi-Chi, Goku's wife in canon.
  • Crack Fic: As if the very idea of crossing these particular works wasn't bizarre in itself, we then get the infamous Hitler fight scene.
  • Damage-Proof Vehicle: In Part 2, Goku leaps into a tank and proceeds to easily destroy scores of German troops without a scratch. Apparently, Goku's sheer might extends somehow to the entirely-mundane vehicle he's driving.
  • Ephebophile: Goku falls in love with Anne Frank during their first meeting. Anne would have been only 15 at the time.
  • Fictionalized Death Account: Unlike in reality, where Hitler shot himself in a bunker, he gets killed in a fight with a time-traveling Goku.
  • Heroic Second Wind: At the end, Goku is badly battered and nearly defeated by Hitler, but then, due to The Power of Love, suddenly becomes a "Super Ultra Power Saiyan" and destroys Hitler in the blink of an eye.
  • Historical Domain Superperson: Adolf Hitler is revealed to be a Saiyan powerful enough to hold his own in a fight with Goku.
  • Love at First Sight: Anne and Goku almost immediately fall in love the moment Goku appears in her room.
  • More Dakka: Confronted by Goku, Hitler opens the fight by grabbing a nearby chaingun and firing it at him.
  • No-Sell: Hitler manages to shrug off everything Goku can throw at him... until Goku manages to become a "Super Ultra Power Saiyan".
  • Rank Scales with Asskicking: Hitler, unlike all of his Mooks, puts up a mighty fight.
  • Real-Person Fic: Anne Frank being the "real person" here.
  • Red String of Fate: Referenced in Part 2:
    Little did she know, however, that their lives were tied by the unbreakable red string of fate.
  • Shout-Out: "You came here expecting to find a madman, but instead, you found a GOD!" is a verbatim quote from the Street Fighter movie.
  • Smug Super: Much like many of the canonical Dragon Ball villains, Hitler loves to brag about his power.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Anne Frank doesn't die in this fic like she did in the real-life events her diary ended on. Instead, she changes her name and starts a new life with Goku.
  • Title Drop: Three times, in fact.
    Anne never forgot him, though... not until the end of time.
    Goku smiled. "Anything for you, my dear." He said. "Our love will never be lost...not until the end of time."
    And they would always be together, until the end of time.
  • Troll Fic: Written pretty much to get a rise out of people.
  • We Didn't Start the Führer: It turns out Hitler was actually a Saiyan.
  • You Can Barely Stand: Near the end of the fight, Super Saiyan Hitler nearly completely defeats Goku with a single punch.
    The Nazi leader laughed. "You still want to fight? Don't you know when to give up, boy? You can hardly walk. And you expect to beat ME? Conqueror of Europe?"

MugiMikey's animated adaptation additionally contains examples of:

  • Anachronism Stew: Anne has a Justin Bieber poster in her room, likely as a reference to Bieber's infamous comment that he hoped Anne would have been a fan of his.
  • Bloody Hilarious: There's a lot of over-the-top violence in the short, including Goku ripping out a Nazi's intestines and taking a bite out of them for some reason.
  • Evil Laugh: Hitler lets out one when looking over his parading army.
  • Historical Badass Upgrade: The real Anne Frank almost certainly wasn't strong enough to break handcuffs.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Travel Montage: A dotted line is shown on the map of Europe as Anne and Goku fly from Amsterdam to Berlin.
