Nazi commando Otto Skorzeny's post-War activities). Given that the entertainment industry is predominantly Jewish, and World War II was still a recent memory for most people, it's not surprising that any Nazi character would be denied even the tiniest human characteristic.
Another with some (increasingly small) currency today is the fugitive Nazi war criminal, who may well be hiding out in Latin Land (especially Argentina, it seems) or even the continental United States. The sheer use of them as antagonists practically makes them an arguable standout example of The Usual Adversaries, and perhaps the ultimate form of Villain by Default.
And, by way of contrast, All Germans Are Nazis and A Nazi by Any Other Name.
There were many branches of the Nazi military, each associated with the above subtropes to a varying degree.
More mundane Nazis may belong to the Wehrmacht, which was comprised of the Heer (Army), Luftwaffe (Air Force) and Kriegsmarine (Navy), where they are less likely to be members of the Nazi party at all and more likely to be conscripts.
This isn't Truth in Television, despite what unsubstantiated (and deeply biased) post-war memoirs might lead one to believe by deliberately or accidentally misrepresenting the Wehrmacht's deep commitment to Nazism and depressing litany of War Crimes - which include the policy that no German soldier would be tried for War crimes committed against Soviet citizens because they were going to exterminate them all anyway (Hitler approved, but it was the Wehrmacht's idea).
Anyhow, the Wehrmacht's increasing politicisation came at the expense of its military professionalism, and by 1941 its operational plans had become seriously divorced from reality as they based more and more of their planning upon racist assumptions about their enemies. If Nazis are out hunting for La Rsistance or Jews, you might encounter The Gestapo, the German Secret Police, though they tend to be less of a threat than their rivals in the SS (though they're usually no less horrible as people).

These are common in cop shows, and are given a particularly chilling representation in the film , the protagonists would occasionally take a break from battling the commies in order to put a stop to someone's attempt to reinstate the "The Fourth Reich." These Nazi wannabes would invariably be vaguely Germanic, paranoid, arrogant, obsessed with "discipline," and usually very morally rigid (such as announcing that in the New Order, women would be limited to making babies, their "proper function").
In short, such characters were little more than broadly drawn cartoons, although they have some factual basis (e.g.
When they are Nazi-esque organisations but not Nazis themselves, you have A Nazi by Any Other Name.
When the Nazis merge with communist belief, you have Commie Nazis.
