The Peter Kranz's Street Battle Scene is a scene from the movie Downfall and is rarely used by Untergangers, however Untergangers making war parodies do use this scene.

In Downfall

The scene begins with several soldiers running, while shells explode everywhere. Peter Kranz and another soldier are in a bomb crater, armed with Panzerfausts. Several soldiers are firing StG-44s and MG 34s behind sandbags. Soviet soldiers are closing in. Suddenly a T-34 tank is seen and Peter tries to move, but the other soldier tells him that they're too far. The tank fires at the sandbag nest and destroys it, killing and injuring the soldiers. Peter finally jumps out of the hole, and the other soldier is shot in the head while trying to stop him. Peter sees himself in front of the tank and enemy soldiers, and jumps back in the hole, as the tank fires. He sees his fellow soldier dead, and after a moment runs away.

The Reich Chancellery yard is being bombed as well, and the soldiers guarding the Bunker entrance flee inside the bunker and close the door, as a shell hits the building.

In Downfall Parodies

The scene has rarely appeared in Downfall parodies and almost never on its own, due to the dark nature of having a young child witnessing the death of a soldier.

It is most commonly used in war parodies, such as The Console Wars, where the tank’s appearance is used to introduce the PC gamers. A heavily modified version of this scene appeared in Der Disneygang, where the older soldier is shot dead by Dumbo the flying elephant, while Peter looks on in horror.


  • This scene explains the disappearance of the two MP40-wielding guards at the Bunker entrance.
