Most of the parodies featuring him portrayed him as Fegelein, the master of antics. His first appearances were in Lieblingsfachful's Fegelein in Stalingrad and Meowjar's United Nazi War parody series. He would reappear in later parodies such as Hitler's Lost Christmas, Fegelein's Crisis and Der Frozengang.
