This is a list of unnamed Downfall characters, whose name is unknown and their name shown here comes from the film's credits. Many, like in case of Artur Axmann or Alwin-Broder Albrecht, are recognised from their similarity with their real life counterparts, from both their physical aspect and clothing, even though they're still unnamed in the Downfall credits.

After he shoots her at point blank in the heart, overwhelmed with guilt, he shoots himself in the head.
