Battle for the Bunker, created by Soalric Parker, is a sequel to his previous series, Der Disneygang. Like Der Disneygang, Battle for the Bunker is based on the Hitler Rants YouTube phenomenon.

The story picks up where Der Disneygang stopped. The Disney characters, having reclaimed their universe from the Nazis, are absolutely livid that their previous executives could have so easily sold them over to the Nazis. When said executives tried to reclaim their positions as leaders of Disney, the Disney characters booted them out and began to run their own realm. In response to the Nazi occupation they had to suffer, Disney made alliances with multiple other animated universes, including several Anime ones and together, they declared themselves to be the Unified Animated Republic. Not long after, the Unified Animated Republic declared war on the Nazis, wanting to take revenge for the events of Der Disneygang. While the war between the Unified Animated Republic and Nazi Germany was being fought, neither side did realize that from the darkest reaches of space, another even bigger threat was coming to earth...


This series also serves as a Grand Finale to Soalric's YouTube channel, as he announced he would retire from YouTube after finishing this series.

This series provides examples of:

  • Alien Invasion: Starts in full force in the third episode, with several hints to it in the first two. Basically, the one of the city destroyers from Independence Day and the terraformers from Man of Steel appear and begin to make life miserable for the Nazis and Unified Animated Republic.
  • Author Avatar: A literal one taking the form of The Joker from The Dark Knight. Soalric, being done with making Hitler parodies, plans to destroy the parody universe. To do so, he inserted himself in the form of the Joker leading a fleet of planet destroying spaceships.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Hitler pulls one in the first episode. When the Unified Animated Republic is on the verge of defeating the Nazis, Hitler returns to the Bunker just in time and stops them with his Pencil of Doom.

  • Big Damn Movie: When the episodes are watched back to back, this series certainly has the feel of a Big Damn Movie. The original parodies this is based on are mostly just short random jokes, while this series tells a coherent story about the possible destruction of the entire Parody Universe.
  • Callback: The first episode has several to the events of Der Disneygang.
    • The Nazi occupation and their subsequent defeat is mentioned.
    • The executives callously selling Disney off to the Nazis.
    • Hitler being overthrown by Goebbels and imprisoned.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Every character is revealed to be this to Soalric. Even Goebbels' usurpation of Hitler in Der Disneygang was nothing more than Soalric wanting to upset the balance of power For the Evulz.
  • Darker and Edgier: Compared to its predecessor Der Disneygang. While Der Disneygang is a simple story about an oppressed people fighting for freedom, Battle for the Bunker deals with the possible destruction of the Hitler Parody universe. It is also a bit more graphic in showing the death and destruction of it's characters and setting.

  • Deus ex Machina: After the aliens destroyed the entire Luftwaffe and set themselves up as an invincible threat, Hitler simply destroys their ships with his Pencil of Doom. Or so he thinks, since Soalric just as easily fixes the ships, redirecting them to Hitler's bunker.
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: With Hitler and his Nazis being Villain Protagonists, its pretty much this trope when the planet busting aliens arrive.
  • Expy: Günsche is obviously one to Snape. The scene explaining his backstory is even taken from Snape's flashback of the final Harry Potter film.
  • Enemy Mine: During the final battle, Nazi Germany, the Antic Order and the Unified Animated Republic join forces against the aliens.
  • God Is Evil: Soalric clearly hasn't the best intentions in store for the characters and is pretty much the closest thing this universe has to a God. He is also a God in a metaphorical sense, in that he is the creator of this series and multiple other Hitler parodies. The reason of his antagonism to the characters was because he was merely done with making Hitler parodies and wanted to end his career by destroying the entire Parody universe. Fortunately for the characters, he realized he actually valued his time as a parodist, ending the series with a genuine thankful goodbye, allowing the characters to continue their lives.
  • Heel Realization: Soalric has one in the end after Günsche wrecks his computer, realizing he does not have to delete his parodies in order to retire. He continues with his own life, allowing the parody characters to continue theirs.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Günsche does one at the end of the series. To stop Soalric from destroying the parody universe, he enters Soalric's computer and starts wrecking his Windows installation, after uploading all of Soalric's Hitler parodies to a Dropbox account, rendering them safe from deletion. Because said computer ceased to function, Günsche more or less deleted himself from existence.
  • Hidden Depths: Günsche is usually portrayed as an unintelligent lumbering idiot who informs Hitler about the most obvious of things. He is revealed to be part of the Antic Order and was good friends with Hitler's mother Klara when she was a child. When both of them grew up, Günsche managed to get Klara a spot on the most dangerous division of the Antic Order, known as the Destroyers. Klara, realizing the Destroyers weren't what she wanted, wanted out. Unfortunately, the Destroyers found and killed her. To make up for this mistake, Günsche vowed to protect and look after her son Adolf Hitler. To stay close to Hitler, he appears as a simpleminded giant, so the Führer won't be suspicious of him.
  • Karma Houdini: Goebbels is this when considering all the crap he pulled in Der Disneygang. When Hitler returns after breaking out of jail, he simply states Goebbels will get what he deserves, but none of it is seen. In fact, he can still be seen standing in the background.
  • Kick the Dog: After the Unified Animated Republic suffered greatly at the hands of the aliens, Hitler plans to mobilize his forces to kick them while they are down.
  • Killed Off for Real: Turns out to be a big deal, as several characters point out this trope is highly unusual within the downfall parodies. Normally, dead characters simply return to life without explanation, as has happened many times with Fegelein. Characters suffering this fate are Hitler's mother and Günsche.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Happens several times. Especially regarding the cartoon characters of the Unified Animated Republic.
    • One of the generals mentions that just 20 seconds after declaring war against Nazi Germany, the forces of the Unified Animated Republic arrived in Berlin, lampshading their ability to defy physics.
    • When planning a counterattack, Hans Krebs warns the others they should build up a sufficient defense against Anime characters, as these tend to be absurdly overpowered.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: Even moreso than Der Disneygang. Characters from multiple animated universes made appearances, including characters from Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and even several Anime series like Dragonball and Attack on Titan. Also, multiple ships from several Alien Invasion movies appear later on.
  • Nobody Calls Me "Chicken"!: The generals attempt to make Hitler attack the aliens by insinuating he is afraid of them. Hitler, off course, takes the bait and gives the order to mobilize the Luftwaffe.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In retaliation for their mistreatment at the Nazi's hands, the animated characters form an alliance and proceed to completely curb stomp the Nazis.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Inverted. It is the creator of the series, Soalric, who turns out to be the Big Bad, endangering the characters of the Parody Universe.
  • The Mole: Göring suddenly turns out to be one. This is lampshaded by Hitler, when Göring reveals there is a spy in the bunker, with Hitler responding this is just an excuse to randomly turn a character evil.
  • The Great Escape: After being left in jail in the ending of ''Der Disneygang Hitler is shown escaping prison in the first episode. It is later revealed Günsche assisted him during this escape.
