Although the spoofed subtitle can contain almost anything, there are certain phrases in Downfall that became famous and catchy enough that it gained numerous bufallaxes or mondegreens, and have the original meaning preserved in most parodies.
The following lists out these famous catch phrases from Downfall. More can be found in the Mondegreen page.
"Bringen Sie mir Fegelein!"Edit
This is the most famous line, spoken by Hitler, in Hitler Reviews Scene. The original German means "Bring me Fegelein!", in response to him not being in the bunker. The parodies also tends to keep the original meaning to a certain degree, usually of Hitler associating anything and everything as Fegelein's doing.
Common bufallaxes of this phrase include "Bring a singing Fegelein!", introduced by discovery781IsABitch.
"Er ist nicht in der Bunkeranlage"Edit
The phrase is highly abused by the Untergangers in the parodies, it was even even joked that the expression means a lot of things in German.
"My Führer, what are you planning?"Edit
This is the most common spoof catchphrase of Jodl's first line in the Hitler Planning Scene. The original German of "Mein Führer, dann ist die neunte Armee verloren!" actually means "My Führer, then the Ninth Army is lost", in line with the actual situation of the film's plot. As the scene is usually used in the parodies depicting Hitler concocting numerous, often eccentric plans, Jodl's first line is spoofed to reflect these. Sometimes they will note the eccentricity of Hitler plans, being spoofed to the like of "My Führer, what ridiculous plan are you making now?"
"Sofort!" is spoken by Hitler, also in the Hitler Reviews Scene. It carries the meaning of "immediately" or "at once". In some circumstances, when the scene is spoofed for the "Hitler is informed..." series, the original meaning is preserved. Due to the way it is spoken (with exclamation) and Hitler's Austrian accent, most viewers couldn't help but to hear it bufallaxed as "so fucked!", "this sucks!" "that fuck!, "he sucks", "you suck" and more often than not, it is spoofed to that end. Examples include Hitler condemning someone (usually Fegelein) if they do something against's Hitler's will.
"Ach, Unsinn" is a German phrase, which literally means "oh, nonsense", but is generally meant to be understood as "cut the crap", "piss off" etc. Adolf Hitler delivers it - with his typical, heavy Bavarian/Austrian accent - in the end of the Telephone Scene, in response to Hans Krebs' last comment about the railway bridge over the Oder River. Many parodists use the montage involving it. Hitler himself also spoke the line in other scenes. The word "piss off" is often replaced with other lines, such as "bullshit", "fuck you!", "I do!", etc.
"Crappy" and "Epic(ly)"Edit
There is a line, spoken by Hitler in the Hitler Eating Scene, where Hitler speaks a word that sounds very similar to "crappy" and "epicly" (or "epic"). Untergangers made frequent use of this. An example was this: "Compared to Luftwaffe, planes are crappy. I adore toasts epicly."
The original for German is "Seien Sie unerbittlich"' - "Be relentless" (in re-building the Luftwaffe), told to Robert Ritter von Greim after he was appointed to the commander of the Air Force. And as for the "crappy" it is "krempeln", in the original sentence; "Sie mussen die Luftwaffe vom Grunde auf umkrempeln".
"Go back to Narnia, begone!"Edit
This phrase is the most popular catchphrase applied to the Krebs meets General Chuikov scene, when Chuikov is shoving Matvey Blanter into the closet. The phrase is a reference to "The Chronicles of Narnia" series, where the main characters enter a fictional world named Narnia by going through a wardrobe. Parodies using this portray Blanter as someone from Narnia who is in the room for a variety of reasons, including none. Who first introduced this catchphrase is currently undetermined, but very soon people began copying this phrase for their parodies.
"All Star Reichstag Himmler"Edit
Upon realising that Himmler betrayed him and went to the Allied Force, Hitler went on ranting in Hitler's Dining Scene. His first word is "Unter allen ausgerechnet, Himmler!" means "Of all people, Himmler!". The part "Unter allen 'ausgerechnet, Himmler! is often spoofed to be "all star reichstag himmler". For example is in Fuhrer's Creed 3 by DictatorAntics; "Burn in hell, all star reichstag, himmler!".
