It's not a bug, it's a feature.
I think it's now a critical issue that need to be addressed immediately. The nickname section of the character infoboxes have bloated, but without citations it's becoming more and more unreliable.
Please note very carefully that the function of infoxes are only to summarize points that are in the article. The nicknames section has evidently become a loophole where people keep adding [uncited] names, but never cared to elaborate them in the main article.
Presently, the nicknames section contradicts official rules regarding citation/referencing and, more critically, the fundamentals of infoboxes.

I'm writing this from a school computer, and it may be the last you hear from me for a while.
Last night, my computer's power cord died on me, and at the moment I have no means to obtain a new one; money supplies are tight right now, so I'm going to be offline for an extended period. At best, my absence will last no more than a couple of weeks. There's a chance, however, that it may drag on for longer.
I'm not retiring, I'm not dead, and I will return to you all eventually. May fate bring me back swiftly!
Good-bye for now, but not forever.Read more >

Tanya Gold did a piece on The Guardian about what she termed to as Hitler porn; the saturation of all things Hitler in pop culture and the fascination thereof. From the numerous films to the Kitler cat memes, Hitler’s guest appearances in T.V shows and his very own sitcom (Heil Honey, I’m Home!), the tabloid sidepieces (Nazi cows in Devon), the videogames, the comic books, the novels and so on - you get the picture, it’s a clusterfuck of Nazi-themed culture everywhere and its giving Tanya Gold a serious case of Nazi ennui, Hitler fatigue if you will.
The article’s argument against this proliferation of all-things-Hitler is actually better than other arguments that have been put forward against say the golden child of Hitler porn, the Downfal…Read more >

The element of surprise
This article is about how the element of surprise can be used to make a parody more fun, and it's mostly dedicated to people who are in the beginning of their parody making. First of all I wanna point out that I'm not claiming to be an expert, and I don't always use this principle in my own parodies. I'm just sharing what I've learned by watching other parodies, and from my real life studies (psychology). Hopefully someone will find it useful!
When you expect something to be funny; it usually isn't. Which is why many jokes aren't really that funny, because when you read it/hear it - you expect it to be funny. Same thing if someone says "you gotta see this, it's sooo funny!", you might laugh a little and find it entertaini…Read more >
Hello reader of this blog!
Today, Friday 25 January 2013, I am going to Austria for 9 days. Which means that I have to survive 9 days without you guys. I hope that someone can either fill me in on the things that I miss in the comments or in the chat when I am back. Something tells me that this will be an interesting week...
- Will Antoni Pieter open a new channel and continue his plagiarism?
- What will happen with Master Studios' POTM?
- Who will win this month's UOTM?
- Who will get awards in the UA?
Anyway, I'll see you guys on Sunday, 3 December.
See ya!Read more >
Since I've been getting up to a variety of things lately, and have a variety of requests and projects on my back, I thought I'd clarify what's currently going on:
- My part of the collab is finally up!
- My current parody series' episode is nearly complete, and should be coming out today (19th), with any luck.
- I have plans for other videos, such as some superweapon (one character's superweapon versus another's, and so on) videos, and other interesting things. I also need to make some more episodes of 'Hitler's Harsh Home Truths', especially as the first one about Ron Paul and Paultards went down a treat (lolbertardianism, what a ridiculous ideology, trolololo).
On that note, I'm off to complete these wonderful, visual treats. You…Read more >
As I've already informed some of you, I'm going to be traveling tomorrow. That means I will be offline until Thursday. By then, I should be back with my beloved Internet! Just a quick heads up, so you don't think I disappeared off the edge of the planet. See you next Thursday!Read more >
Constantin Film claimed my videos! That's not good. I don't know if Constantin Film takes Hitler parodies down again... I hope not. Constantin Film stops blocking videos since October 2010. They put ads instead. If I get copyright strikes from Constantin Film, that would be not good! If I get suspended, I'll make a new Hitler account. If you have problems with Constantin Film claiming your videos, just let me know.Read more >
Memo to the judges. Hello my friends! As the New Year draws upon us with greater speed, it's time for several changes around here, especially to the UOTM. Besides, up until now, it has been rather unclear as to what role/s you judges should play in this competition. Well, all that is going to change.
So here's some of the new rules, as of December 2012:
- If there is a tie, then the judges will decide on the winner, taking into account the innovation, FX, and storyline categories and coming to a general consensus. Run-off votes are discontinuedas they hinder the process.
- Despite having been the judge who founded the contest, and who often operates the forum postand system as a whole, I am now officially only a judge amongst equals, with…Read more >
With 2012 closing rapidly, it means a new season for the Parody of the Month Awards, and there will be some changes to it that I think most people will enjoy, plus it makes it a bit easier for me.
You may recall early in October that the Parody of the Month Awards allied itself with Unterganger of the Month Awards and the newly formed Unterganger Awards in a bid to overthrow notoriousrob's controversial Downfall Parody Awards. With the inception of the Unterganger Awards, there was much confusion on how the other two award shows interact with it, whether the two were simply categories of the UAs and other questions still go unanswered, and even Benad361 , TheSilverUniverse , and myself were confused on the implications, so after much consid…

I would like to understand this sudden antagonism towards me. I have done nothing against any untergangers. I've supported every new Unterganger that popped up out of the ground, I contributed heavily to the wikia, and helped those who needed advice or what have you to improve their craft.
Yet now, I am labeled a "douchebag?" I do my part by making sure no frivolous pages are being added to the wiki and I get called the douchebag?
Why? Is it because I disagree with a particular someone? Is it because I don't act like a troll every time I've or my community has been wronged?
I've read past chat entries where Mfaiz wants to boycott the PoTY and remove me as PoTM Judge. Why? Why am I vilified simply because I have a different opinion than Mr. …

So, big news for today: one year ago, I uploaded my very first Downfall parody, and thus totally turned my channel around. I've gone from having around ten subscribers to 314, and more importantly found a new "hobby" that has become much more than a hobby. Best of all though, I found a great community of people and made new friends from all over the globe! I wish to thank my fans and my fellow Untergangers for their support, and I hope that this meme will continue strongly so that others can have the same experience that I have had. Long may the Antic Banner fly!Read more >
Warner Brothers reinstated one of their claims on my video "V for Verrat", and now it's blocked in both Germany and Japan. The problem is, I've already tried appealing their claims, and if I try to dispute them, it becomes a serious legal action, which I can't afford to initiate. So, I have two paths open to me:
- Leave the video as it is, and just lose out on the German and Japanese audiences, or
- Re-upload it with a watermark and hope the visuals are left alone.
Which path would be better, do you suppose?Read more >
Fellow Untergangers, I've been wondering if It would be appropiate to post information here about a parody created by Marito Baracus, an Argentinian youtuber, not related to the our community.
His video uses the following scenes in exact order:
- Himmler gteets Hitler
- Hitler Yuth Scene
- Eva talking on the phone with Fegelein
- Schenck and the burning of documents
- Hitler is informed scene
- Hitler is informed scene (with Dolfy, Skeletor, Hewel and Bormann)
Please keep in mind that it contains offensive jokes and above all, it it spoken in Lunfardo, a language me and PiretBCN understand.Read more >
The good news is that I'm no longer as busy as I was before, and I'm able to release slightly more parodies than I was before (meaning that the UOTM is no longer delayed as it was before). December's voting thread will be up on time, my collaboration project with HitchcockJohn is nearly complete, as is a new YouTube Poop, and so on.
However, the bad news is that people still seemingly can't be bothered to vote in the contest - despite my efforts to promote the contest and encourage people to vote, I'm still ending up with a tie in the contest, most recently on the November thread. It still seems that some people can't be bothered to open a link and press a few keys (and I'm aware that that doesn't apply to many of you, thankf…Read more >
I'd like to start this post by saying that I am thankful for this community. If it wasn't for you guys, I would still be depressed and would not know what to do with my life. But that is not what this blog post is about. I'm here to talk about the well-being of this community. I've been around long enough to know how things work around here - a few more months and I've been here for a year. Big, big thanks to Mfaizsyahmi and my web dev past, I've become one of the quickest to gain respect around here. Also, big thanks to Subtitlecomedy for making my stay entertaining.

So, some stuff going on with me and my channel:
- I won a minor victory today with my latest video, "V for Verrat". If you have not seen it yet, please do! Anyway, when it first uploaded, it suffered from geographical restrictions due to me incorporating V for Vendetta in it. I disputed the claim on the grounds of parody, and I got the limitation removed! My German and Japanese audiences, rejoice!
- I'm going to be working on a parody I got commissioned in class. "Fundamental economics with Hitler"! Yeah!!....yeah.....eh, I'll do my best.
- Finally, the bad news: Someone has STOLEN my Slenderman video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtuCUPPvXDY&list=UUruaOvEckItjrl-95NEoyRw&index=6&feature=plcp I tried to message him, hoping to get him to give me …
I'm going to write a short notice for admins and maintainers of The Fegel Times:
- USE THE CORRECT WIKITEXT! Use the source mode to check:
- News date are proceeded with a semicolon (e.g. ;16 October 2012). Do not use the with the "newshighlight" class to highlight certain news items (such as open nominations) in The Fegel Times. Remove these divs once the news item becomes outdated (e.g. the nomination has closed.)
- Switch to source mode, mind you.
- Don't forget to read the notes at the bottom of The Fegel Times.
Other general stuff:
- Rename any uploaded files that does not conform to the rules and the manual of style. give the offenders a warning, and this serves as a warning for future offenders.

It seems that I have successfully managed to break my computer, again... fragile 2.5in hard disk couldn't stand a little bit of rough treatment by me. I'll be going to a shop for repair tomorrow, and, depending on how long they will take to repair that hard disk and reinstalling Windows on it, I'll be out of the scene for at worst a week.
This would also mean that I won't be able to start the Halloween collab with TSU, DA and KT soon enough. I might even be forced to withdraw from the collab, depending on how the situation progresses. I'm terribly sorry guys.
So yeah... I should ask the shop if they can put a more sturdy HDD in this laptop. And yeah, gotta love the Ubuntu distro...Read more >
Hello, I am Brian Chiem. You can call me Brian Hitler Chiem. I have updates to do. I can think all Hitler ideas for myself. However, I don't take any requests.

If I get suspended, I might re-upload all of my Hitler videos somewhere else. However, if you have any copyright claim problems, let me know. Also, I have to private some of my videos to prevent me getting copyright strikes when it takes it down.Read more >
Haven't put anything on here for months, so...here's a quick overview of what's happening with me.
- I'm currently on a week-long break. Hopefull, I can get another video or two done before next Monday.
- Between my weekday and Saturday classes, I've been greatly pressed for time. But whenever I have a little, I've been working on several ideas. Which brings me to my last announcement...
- I've been commissioned by my class to create a video explaining economic basics. And I figured, who better to make an otherwise boring subject interesting than Dolfy and the bunker gang? It should be done sometime in mid-November, so stay tuned!
I am very sorry for my lack of activity recently - I am well aware that I have the next part of my new series pending, as well as an Unterganger of the Month announcement video, an unnamed YouTube Poop, and work on a collaboration with HitchcockJohn.
However, the way things have been going recently, I just haven't had the time. I recently started university on the 23rd September, and even before then, I was busy packing and readying myself. Much of my time therefore has to go into finding my way around, lectures, a very active social life, and so on.
Because of this, I seem to have lost my zeal for making parodies, and often not had much time to do them anyway.
But I will hopefully make a comeback very soon. As I mention…Read more >
Hello fellow untergangers, I would just like to apologize for the lack of output in any fashion lately beit parodies, wiki contributions, or most importantly the Winner of the Parody of the Month Award for August Video. It is simply because school started back up and I have been concentrating on that, however I promise to upload the winner video on Sunday, and I have started up the September nominations thread on the forum even though I haven't announced the winner of august yet. Also I want to make something clear, I never said TSU couldn't upload an announcement video, however I also didn't say he could, so to clear it all up, here is how it will be from now on:
If I do not upload the winner announcement video for one of the PoTM awards…

It's reality - the Unterganger's chat has been overrun by kiddo untergangers talking about games, warez, and sharing lol non-parodies on a daily basis. I won't be in the chat from now on until something managed to mend my heart. In fact, I'm going to start a separate Chatango group and replace the one in the wiki.Read more >
For those of you who follow my parodies regularly, I am curious. Before I used the Law and Order based theme for my intros and outros, and I wonder do you think my parodies are better with or without it? Furthermore, do you think outros in general make the parody-watching experience more enjoyable or less, or does it depend on the quality of the outro?Read more >
Hey all I would like to announce my new domain name. Technically the site itself is about a year old, but I finally knuckled down and purchased a domain name to host my videos and more. If any of you have any web design skills, I'd appreciate your assistance in making it sparkle!

So, I was hanging about in the unter-chat when mfaiz made the claim that using OBS is cliche. So I am curious, do other Untergangers find it cliche for parodies to use the OBS?
I don't see how that can be possible, after all the entire meme is based off that scene. To say that scene is cliche is to say the entire meme is cliche, and thus would mark the beginning of the end of this meme. I think what perhaps is was meant, and into this extent I agree, is that the usage of OBS singularly in parodies these days are tiresome, nothing too special about them, however it still holds importance and validity, in my opinion, when used in concert with other scenes.Read more >
A few days ago HRP posted on what seemed like how Constantin Film monetizing off a wide range of channels on YouTube, with HRP naturally topping the list.
Then, a few hours ago, I decided to browse the SocialBlade site and found a page where they list the top 50 of these so-called "Networks": http://socialblade.com/youtube/top/networks
Though Constantin is not on the list, seeing giant labels as vevo and machinima triggered a lightbulb inside my mind: I found out how the monetizing schemes work.

- 2 Case Study 2: VEVO and Constantin

As we all know, machinima almost certainly doesn't own all of their videos; almost all of them are made by their large c…

The meme has come along way since its humble beginnings when Sim Heil first appeared. Many untergangers come and go and each add something to this entity we now call the Parody Universe. Some of them left memorable moments and classic parodies that keep us laughing to this day, while others add techniques and styles to the point that I might dare to call what we do art, however, it is in this new era of the Downfall meme that could harken the end of a class of Untergangers we hold so dear, as it is this class that started it all and without this meme wouldn't have even existed. The class I am talking about is the traditionalists.
Traditionalists such as Hitlerrantsparodies are in peril of becoming obsolete in this new era of Downfall. If I…

As some of you may recall, I attempted to start my own spin-off parody series, Franco Parodies, however previously I had complications in doing so, however I just recently come up with a possible solution.
- 1 Solution
- 1.1 Source
- 1.2 Character Confusion
- 1.3 Production
- 1.4 Sharing
The first hurdle in creating a Franco Parody, (or any parody of this kind) is finding a good quality film source, and I have done so. Called Dragon Rapide which depicts Franco's rise to power during the Spanish Civil War (which is good because of the timeframe being parallel to that of the three stooges: Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin. Plus old-man Franco is just gross.)
As is stated in the wiki page, one of the problems with making Franco Parodies is that because of insufficien…

My dear Untergangers you may have noticed a lack of activity once again from me. Not only the lack of production of material to my channel, but even falling behind on the Parody of the Month deal, and until this very moment, almost a dead stop to my contributions to this wiki.
The main reason why I have been failing in these things is because my computer was Fegel-ed by a trojan virus. In response I had to do a full wipe of my computer, unfortunately in my haste to fix the computer, I forgot to save my parody materials (video clips, green screens, etc.) before doing so.
This past week or so, I have been rebuilding my stash of fegel-tools so I can begin making parodies once more. I only have three more parodies left to remake, then I begin se…

Alright, I'm writing this to give my recommendation on what should be, or should not be in articles. Though most of the articles in this wiki are extensive, there are some improvements here and there that can be made: Adding some relevant sections, cutting down on others.
- Character Infobox (with obvious exception on Blondi :P )
- Some quotes (optional) - do not overdo it or add too many of it
- Background section (optional, would be nice to have one)
- In Downfall section
- In The Parodies/In Parody Universe section
- Comparison with other Antic Masters (Antic Masters only)
- List of appearances (Downfall characters only)
- Other portrayals (mostly a link to the character page in IMDB)
- Trivia (optional)
- Pictures from Downfall
- Pictures from other films, spoofs, …

Smoglessbutton4 tipped me off this morning that someone took one of my videos without credit. Upon inspection, I found the channel has taken many video from several other Untergangers, especially hitlerrantsparodies. The channel is antonipeter .

A Ugandan newspaper and a television studio from Pakistan have claimed copyright on my "Hitler Puts on an Art Show" video. As a result, it is banned from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Rather than go through a dispute process, I'll simply re-upload it. The resolution was bad anyway, and I was considering it for a while. But if any of you receive claims from "geotv" or "NewVision", speak up. We might have a big problem facing us.Read more >

Hello, fellow editors and Untergangers!
I just wanted to say how amazing this wiki has become! The fan art, the actual articles, the additional scenes from Downfall, and more! The work here is amazing!
And, as for the parodies, they are really well done. From the meme's humble origins to now, I think we've taken great strides in Downfall Parodies. I think we can extend the meme; evolution is a process that will never end.
Be proud! And thank you all!Read more >
You may not not know about me, so I'm going to explain what I do real quick.
I'm AT88TV. my real name is Aaron Turnbull, and I am an Unterganger from the Glasgow area of Scotland.

Some of my best parodies are below. I know there are very few, but oh well.

I have recently received a request for a video, so I'm going to focus on that for the next week or so until it's finished. The requester is 1992balto. Then I'll work on another parody I have on the backburner. It involves Burgdorf and Hitler's precious Blondi.
As a plus, my classes will be over this Thursday. I'll have a short one day trip up to Vegas a week afterwards, and then two weeks of uninterrupted editing time! Stay tuned.
And by the way, if anybody wants a certain mash-up made, just leave a comment. I'll get to work as soon as humanly possible-and then some...Read more >
Some major developments since my last blog post:
- I've been taking classes at the community college, and my last day is this Thursday. After June 28, I should be able to start making LOTS of videos!
- I finally got the official Inception soundtrack! :D Anybody who's seen my trailer parodies knows I love Inception, and now the music is MINE! So...yeah, I'm happy about that...
- I recently struggled through a mild case of Unterganger's block, with several parodies half done but no ideas for finishers. I have overcome and conquered however, and a new video should be up sometime this weekend.
- I have partaken of the "Imported From Gotham City" video contest. The entry period ends in one week, so if you want to join, by all means hurry! If you don't ente…
