This page is basically a duplicate of the Nazi concept. Almost every association is tied to WWII and/or Nazism in some way, and even if this was not the case, setting up a "German Villains" page is unnecessary when you can just cross-reference Villain and Germany (or at least that feature will be added in the future, I'm lead to believe).

Agreed. There's no need for a German Villain page. Not only does it take things to a hilariously overly specific degree (do we need villain pages for every nationality?), but it's basically just regurgitating that Nazi Germany was bad.

Uh, So my "Maryland Super Heroes" concept idea probably isn't a good idea then?

What about Bowser and the Koopa kids, the most evil of all German villains. Ludwig von Koopa anyone?

That's wrong anyways, since the composers name is Ludwig van Beethoven, "van" beeing of Dutch descent. (He was German, though)

There are definitely non-Nazi German villains, but there is a page for both, so that's covered.

Before we delete this page, I'm curious: does Hitler from Persona 2 count? I mean, it's Hitler, but it's a magical rumor Hitler that speaks perfect Japanese.

@Video_Game_King: Why does it matter?

Just an idle curiosity.

Is it even really Hitler or just an illusion when he shows up?

Also, technically, Hitler was Austrian.

@Hailinel:

Given the nature of the plot, it's difficult to say. He's a rumor Hitler, but this is a game where rumors become reality, and then there's the fact that he's just Nyarlathotep taking on Hitler's form, and etc. But it seems like there isn't much context to make Hitler German in the first place, so it's a moot question.

I support this notion.

"German Villains" sounds kind of bigoted anyway, you can choose whether or not to be a Nazi but you can't choose if you are of German descent.

not to mention Nazis aren't always German
