A Nazi by Any Other Name - TV Tropes
Nazi zombie films. revenge become trapped in a harrowing occult experiment dating back to the .. Zombienation (Hail to the Führer) (). And despite the Bring It On alum's storied (and very public) dating history, there's no doubt Kirsten has learned a thing or two from doing things. Hitler the unstoppable zombie – why we don't let the dictator die am often called upon to reflect upon the significance of two dates – April 20, Inglourious Basterds, where Hitler dies in hail of bullets from Jewish assassins). Hitler's absence allowing the German people to steer their nation away.
The committee members realised that the resignation of their leading public figure and speaker would mean the end of the party. Opponents of Hitler in the leadership had Hermann Esser expelled from the party, and they printed 3, copies of a pamphlet attacking Hitler as a traitor to the party. A demagogue he became adept at using populist themes, including the use of scapegoatswho were blamed for his listeners' economic hardships.
We erupted into a frenzy of nationalistic pride that bordered on hysteria. For minutes on end, we shouted at the top of our lungs, with tears streaming down our faces: From that moment on, I belonged to Adolf Hitler body and soul.
A critical influence on Hitler's thinking during this period was the Aufbau Vereinigung a conspiratorial group of White Russian exiles and early National Socialists. The group, financed with funds channelled from wealthy industrialists, introduced Hitler to the idea of a Jewish conspiracy, linking international finance with Bolshevism.
For Hitler, though, the most important aspect of it was its strong anti-Semitic stance. He also perceived the programme as primarily a basis for propaganda and for attracting people to the party.
They sought "the destruction of existing political and social structure and their supporting elites [and had] profound disdain for civil order, for human and moral values" and for the ideas of classical liberalism as well as those of Marxism. From left to right: Hitler wanted to emulate Benito Mussolini 's " March on Rome " of by staging his own coup in Bavaria, to be followed by a challenge to the government in Berlin.
Hitler and Ludendorff sought the support of Staatskommissar state commissioner Gustav Ritter von KahrBavaria's de facto ruler.
Interrupting Kahr's speech, he announced that the national revolution had begun and declared the formation of a new government with Ludendorff. Neither the army, nor the state police, joined forces with Hitler.
On 1 April, Hitler was sentenced to five years' imprisonment at Landsberg Prison. Pardoned by the Bavarian Supreme Court, he was released from jail on 20 Decemberagainst the state prosecutor's objections.
The book laid out Hitler's plans for transforming German society into one based on race. Throughout the book, Jews are equated with "germs" and presented as the "international poisoners" of society. According to Hitler's ideology, the only solution was their extermination. While Hitler did not describe exactly how this was to be accomplished, his "inherent genocidal thrust is undeniable," according to Ian Kershaw. One million copies were sold inHitler's first year in office.
At one point, Princess Euphemia, one of the Britannians who opposes this system, is prodded to overlook an apparently talented painter's work due to his having a smidgen of Eleven blood.
The uniform style is notably absent, particularly considering how it's used so much in anime without trying to evoke this trope. To drive the nail further, the often used Britannian chant is "All hail Britannia! Turns out to be a subversion since they were founded by Adolf Hitler, making them literal Nazis. Characters regularly shout "Hail Il Palazzo" while doing the Roman salute to their leader.
In the anime, you can actually briefly see twin swastikas in Excel's eyes as she vocally expresses her loyalty in the first episode.
Amestris is, however, rather more like post- World War II Germany, what with the aforementioned "Ishval Civil War" having been a horrible PR catastrophe and most modern Amestrians behaving extremely apologetically towards surviving Ishvalans. The leader who initiated the genocide is somehow still seated in power and continues to uphold a destructive Lebensraum policy, but it helps when you're a superpowered Artificial Human backed by a truly ancient and sinister Government Conspiracy.
This is a somewhat unusual example in that Amestris is mainly inspired by industrial revolution era Britain, and the Ishvalans are based on the Ainu peoplebut it manages to look like a parallel to Nazi Germany anyway. The most famous instance is where Prince Gihren Zabi turns a state funeral into a political rally, with the audience shouting "Sieg Zeon! War in the Pocket and Mobile Suit Gundam Stardust Memory kicked it into overdrive by having Zeon start slapping German names on practically everything and using flags and banners that were literally just Nazi trappings with the Swastika replaced by their own emblem; the franchise has kept running with the theme and hasn't looked back since.
However, the political and military actions taken by Zeon "liberating" other colonies from the Earth Federation are more akin to Imperial Japan 's actions of "liberating" Asian nations from Western influence.
Their soldiers use "All Hail Neo Zeon! Gundam SEED does this to both sides.
Hitler the unstoppable zombie – why we don't let the dictator die
His archenemyMuruta Azraelis a smooth-talking blond psychopath who runs Blue Cosmos, an anti-Coordinator political party and lobby group that is equal parts Nazi Party and Ku Klux Klan cell, and seeks to use nuclear weapons to destroy the colonies and kill all the Coordinators because they are "unnatural.
Breiking Boss and his Androkorps in Neo Human Casshern are an evil android army that seek to eradicate the human race. Amongst their many Nazi-esque traits are a swasitka-like insignia and a faux?
They are a group of monsters obsessed with killing off humanswith social darwinism as one of their founding principles. Their leader is borderline messiah figure in their eyes, and she's a Sensor Character who can detect and purge anyone who shows signs of disagreement.
Then there are the uniforms The Quincies were originally heavily inspired by the Teutonic Knights until they modernised by Putting on the Reich. Quilge looks like Heinrich Himmler and recruits by murdering Arrancar until they fight back. The outfits of the Skunk Empire members are reminiscent of Nazi uniforms, with the kana "? Even Skunk, who grew a mustache over the course of two episodes, dresses very similarly to Hitler during his reign as the leader of the Skunk Empire.
They tore their armbands off after receiving that command and moved against Skunk - and all the other Tribes did too. Trinity Blood has the Rosenkruez Orden, who are a group of vampires and one evil human who are terrorists bent on bringing about the end of the world. They are led by Aryan Ubermensch Cain Nightroad and most dress in clear black suits that very strongly resemble SS uniforms.
Whilst for the most part the Galactic Empire in Legend of Galactic Heroes evokes Imperial Germany rather than Nazi Germanyits founder in the backstory, Rudolf von Goldenbaum, fits this trope pretty well, being a charismatic dictator who rose to power in a corrupt democracy and then transformed it into an autocracy ruled by his own cult of personality, in addition to implementing a number of distinctly social Darwinist policies. The Gotterdammercrat party is more overtly Nazi-themed, complete with swastikas and Putting on the Reich uniforms.
The Carpathian vampires in American Vampire consider themselves superior to not just humans, but also all other vampire bloodlines and its revealed that during the s, they engaged in a genocidal campaign to exterminate them and were just barely stopped by the Vassals of the Morning Star from taking over the world.
In the "Atomic Knights" stories in DC Comics, post-apocalypse Detroit is ruled by a cadre of thugs called "Blue Belts" who wear a distinctive crisscrossing symbol on their hats and uniforms. Their compound also has the symbol, flanked by a pair of wings. Their leader, Kadey, is called "Mr. Organizer" by his men.

Flash returns to Earth especially to stop them invading America, then zooms back to Mongo again. When your founders are Nazis it's no stretch that your organisation end up Nazi-like.
Eggman -backed Dingo Regime, whose soldiers not only wore Brown Shirt-esque uniforms, but who imprisoned all captured Echidnas in what were clearly concentration camps.
Bob Heller, one of the presidential candidates in Transmetropolitanwhose rhetoric is equal parts social Darwinism and Patriotic Fervor. His campaign insignia is a black "H" in a white circle on a field of red, and other characters openly compare him to the Nazis and his campaign events to the Nuremberg rallies.
Just how much of a Crapsack World is Transmetropolitan? Not only is Heller not the most evil candidate in the race, he's not even the most evil candidate in his party.
The Norsefire Party were closer to a logical if extreme extension of right-wing tendencies in late s Britain; they're a decidedly unsubtle expy of the National Front with some level-grinding in competence. That Norsefire are essentially the Nazi Party and still recognisably a heartbeat away from the government of the time is part of what makes V for Vendetta so chilling.
The head honcho Leader Adam Susan, in an introspective moment before the beginning of his slide into true madness, outright confirms to himself he is fascist, both by the historic and the Nazi definition. In his own mental phrasing and Norsefire doctrine, no doubtthe war "put paid to freedom". I will not hear talk of freedom. I will not hear talk of individual liberty. I do not believe in luxuries. The war put paid to luxury. The war put paid to freedom. The only freedom left to my people is the freedom to starve.
The freedom to die, the freedom to live in a world of chaos. Should I allow them that freedom? In Grant Morrison 's penultimate arc of New X-MenPlanet X, Holocaust survivor Magneto goes more and more mindlessly berserk as the arc wears on, culminating in his beginning to herd all surviving non-mutants in New York into crematoria. One of his servants even points out that he's acting like a Nazi. This caused a bit of fan outcry, and Marvel execs were so horrified that they immediately said that wasn't Magneto.
This is hardly the first time Magneto has been compared to the Nazis, nor the first instance of someone pointing it out to him, or even Magneto acknowledging it himself. The look on Magneto's face is priceless.
That probably has something to do with this three-page sequence being the only X-Men-related material ever penned by Alan Moore.

Another incident worth noting—just after Magneto took over Genosha, he mused to Xavier that he didn't think a mutant nation was enough; he hoped to find "a more Xavier suggests the word he was looking for was "final". Ultimate Magneto, however, is another story. He is a clear mutant supremacist who has attempted genocide many times. Since this is an alternate Magneto, this was far better received.
In "Operation Rebirth" from X-Men: It's hardly just Magneto - extremists who hate and fear mutants want them wiped out in a manner similar to ethnic cleansing.
There are numerous Elseworld stories like Days of Future Past in which this has come true and Mutants are enslaved and imprisoned. Magneto's main motivation is to make sure this doesn't happen.
By wiping out the humans first. In the Magneto solo series, he admits to using techniques he learned firsthand from Nazis in his crusade against anti-mutant bigots. There's even a Kreeler Youth organisation. Another AD comic, Invasion! They were later explicitly revealed to be Russian.
Likewise, the enemy Norts from Rogue Trooper show quite a number of Nazi characteristics. He's a Social Darwinist who believes that the strong should rule the weak - he's just a bit more flexible about the whole race thing. Wanda alludes to telling her father to his face that he was no better than the Nazis and similar. As she notes with a certain degree of satisfaction, he took it badly.
T'Challa accuses Baron Zemo of being little more than a Nazi.
The other man objects, claiming to be The Social Darwinist and that Nazism's obsession with race got in the way of true Social Darwinism, before remarking that T'Challa was far superior to any of the Nazis. Storm of Magicthe Lannisters definitely seem to take on characteristics of the Nazis as they modernize, complete with a "Lannister Salute", foot soldiers who dress up with spiked helmets, and Tywin Lannister openly discussing creating a "thousand year dynasty" and invading the Riverlands to obtain more "living space".
In the Robotech fanfic Marque and Reprisalthe Purifiers are a faction controlling the Lake Victoria area in Africa, who trade the Flower of Life with the Invid in exchange for protoculture. They were engaged in a campaign of conquest and ethnic cleansing in the Serengeti. Their flag even has a red background, just like the Nazis.
His mooks and likely the rest of the Republic fall under this as well. Protagonist example in My Brave Pony: Starfleet believe themselves to be in many ways superior to other species in the multiverse, the winged unicorns have actually conquered parts of other realities and they teach in the militaristic force to always follow orders blindly or you will get socially shunned.
Not to forget that they excuse murder by dehumanizing resp. Worse, the author admitted on multiple accounts that this is intentional. According to certain posts, he might not even know the significance of something like the Holocaust and thinks mass murder is okay. He was apparently raised and taught by Holocaust deniersor so he claims. Referenced and lampshaded in the Harry Potter fanfic Returning with the canon example of the Death Eaters. Their supporters even call humanity the Master Race.
After successfully electing their Party Leader John A. Pence Frisk calls them out on their views, calling them Nazis. Ragnar, the elven Big Bad of Power Rangers GPX Supercharged, might as well be an elf version of a fascist dictator, right down to desiring a Final Solution to eliminate humanity, and having concentration camps.
To put it in depth, he believes that humans, whom he considers to be inferior to elves, are a threat to Earth. So he manipulates his Queen to be able to attack the Power Rangers who'd recently saved the world from an alien invasion. But then when she tells him off, he decides he never needed her in the first place and tries to kill her. Then he overthrows the government, installs himself as dictator, and all but declares war on humanity. As the fic goes on, his nazi-like tendencies are fleshed out, culminating in The Reveal of the aforementioned concentration camps.
It's explained more thoroughly in the book. The Nazi Symbolism is quite clear during a sequence when the Hyenas goose step the most evilest march ever by Scar. The scene is directly inspired by Triumph of the Will. This makes the song especially chilling if you watch it in either Hebrew or German. In the Chicken RunMrs. Tweedy's cruel treatment of the chickens wouldn't more obviously resemble that of Nazis if the chickens were given Jewish names.
She even has a gas oven. General Mandible in Antz. Films — Live-Action In The Avengersone of the first things Loki does on earth is to force a crowd of Germans to kneel before him while giving a speech about how humans "were born to be ruled".
One old German calls him out on this while refusing to kneel: Not to men like you. There are always men like you. The version of Bluebeard with Richard Burton provides an odd example, due in part to its observance of No Swastikas. For all intents and purposes it's set during the Nazi era - the characters have Germanic names, one scene depicts an anti-Jewish pogrom, Hitler and Reinhard Heydrich are even mentioned by name - yet the setting's never explicitly identified as Germany.
Which granted, is the least of the movie's problems. The First Avenger are explicitly stated to have started as a Nazi deep science division, but move away from the Reich after the Red Skull plans on bombing Berlin as part of his plan for world conquest. He even states that due to his deformity, he no longer fits with Hitler's perfect Aryan ideal.
This is given a big fat Lampshade Hanging in Agents of S. I'm not a Nazi! That is exactly what you are! It's in the S. HYDRA in the MCU seems to be something of an inversion, as despite being formed from a Nazi-splinter faction, they lack the nationalism and racial purity associated with Nazism and are borderline Terrorists Without a Cause. John Ford 's Cheyenne Autumn features Karl Malden as a German-accented cavalry officer named Wessels who imprisons the Cheyenne in a concentration camp.
He even sports a Hitler mustache and claims, when called out for his cruel treatment of the Indians, that he's Just Following Orders.
