Adolf Hitler (1889–1945) was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party. He was dictator of Nazi Germany (as Führer und Reichskanzler) from 1934 to 1945. Hitler became one of the most despised figures of Earth's history, remembered for starting World War II, his evil, his war crimes both home and abroad, and atrocities.

According to Arnold Rimmer, an avid reader of Fascist Dictator Monthly, Hitler became the "leader of the runners up in World War II". (Timeslides) Rimmer's favorite dictator was however Napoleon Bonaparte. (BTL)
While spending time on a backwards version of Earth, and discussing the merits of time moving backwards, Kryten believes that World War II would be wonderful. In this reality, millions would come back to life, Hitler would disband the Third Reich and bog off back to Austria (Backwards)
A picture of Rimmer's, showing Hitler making a speech at Nuremberg, was developed by Kryten and this made it possible to travel to this place. Lister was seen shouting "He's a nutter" before scuffling with Hitler and stealing his briefcase, which contained a pair of fluffy handcuffs, a banana and crisps sandwich, his diary and a package from Staff Colonel Von Stauffenberg. This package turned out to be a bomb and, by taking it from Hitler, Lister had inadvertently saved Hitler from an assassination. (Timeslides)
When the Boys from Dwarf met their time-travelling future selves, they were horrified to find out that they associated with history's most notorious figures, among them the Hitlers. (Out of Time)
