Derfrozengang

Der Frozengang is a crossover parody between Downfall and Frozen, created by JJ All-star.

In the ruined streets of Warsaw, Poland, Hermann Fegelein wanders around the city. He comes across pianist Władysław Szpilman, and asks him to play a song for him. The song in question haunts Fegelein, and reminds him of a troubled past: at that time, Hitler exploits Fegelein's one weakness, cold, and with this knowledge creates the ultimate plan to eliminate him. To this end he invades and conquers the kingdom of Arendelle, and takes the country's Queen Elsa prisoner.

Using her powers, he creates a pencil that can summon winter at will. The pencil succeeds in bringing Fegelein down to normal, but has the side effect of covering the city in perpetual snow. Now it's up to Fegelein and his allies to stop him and to rescue Queen Elsa...

The prologue can be seen here, while the first part (and indeed the rest) of the parody is available on YouTube.

JJ would eventually state that he has plans to remake the entire series except for the last three episodes.


This parody features examples of

  • Actor Allusion: The parody has lots of this, most notably of Fegelein's actor, Thomas Kretschmann.
  • Bald of Awesome: Schenck.
  • Big Bad: Hitler.
  • The Big Damn Kiss/Kiss of Life: Given by Elsa to Fegelein/von Witzland in the final episode, which not only revives him (he had previously killed Hitler but was also bleeding to death), but also thaws both Arendelle and Berlin.
  • Big Damn Movie: Although this parody is divided into multiple parts, it still counts given its big scale when compared to other Downfall parodies.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: When Fegelein and Jodl finally get captured, Hitler orders them both to be arrested in separate prisons when he could just execute them. He even decides to put Fegelein in the same cell as Elsa. While Jodl wound up escaping thanks to Loringhoven, this is immediately subverted horribly in the next episode when Fegelein gets tortured, nearly killing him.
  • Canon Dis Continuity: Downplayed, as mentioned above. While the prologue and the first five episodes are still canon as of this writing, JJ has plans to remake and possibly retcon them.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Done by Hitler to Fegelein in the seventh episode, all while the latter is naked and Elsa can hear them both.
  • Cool Car: Fegelein's invisible Aston Martin Vanquish and Högl's Jaguar XKR, both of them from Die Another Day.
  • Crossover: Though it actually involves more than just Downfall and Frozen; Stalingrad is also added into the mix and plays more than an important role in the story.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Arendelle's forces are defeated near-effortlessly by Hitler's own troops. This ends up happening to the Germans when the Antic Order (and the US 101st Airborne Division) launched a counterattack to liberate both Arendelle and the Southern Isles.
  • Darker and Edgier: Than Frozen.
  • Dead All Along: The real Fegelein, whose identity has been "reassigned" to Hans von Witzland.
  • Disney Death: Fegelein/von Witzland dies shortly after killing Hitler, but is then revived by Elsa with a kiss.
  • The Dragon: Goebbels to Hitler. He pulls off a Heel Face Turn at the end of part 7.
  • Evil Is Deathly Cold: Hitler, given the fact that his usage of the Pencil of Winter resulted with Berlin experiencing perpetual winter.
  • Face Death with Dignity: His revenge complete with Hitler dead, Fegelein/von Witzland was ready to accept his death; but Himmler points out that Elsa has to revive him to thaw both Arendelle and Berlin, which she does.
  • Fan Disservice: In episode 7, Fegelein gets stripped of his clothes and is beaten horribly, and to top it all off, gets his heart frozen by Hitler.
  • Fire-Breathing Weapon: Flamethrowers are seen being deployed by the Antic Order in episode 8.
  • Foreshadowing: The usage of footage from Stalingrad throughout the parody is meant to foreshadow a plot twist; namely, Fegelein′s true identity.
  • Gag Sub: Naturally.
  • Giant Mook: Both Fegelein and Elsa encounter one in episode 8, who is armed with both a pistol and a shotgun wielded akimbo. Fegelein kills him without much trouble.
  • Gratuitous English: The subtitles tend to slip into Engrish territory.
  • Heel Face Turn: Jodl defects to Fegelein's side at the end of the third episode. At the end of the seventh episode Goebbels decides to switch side upon learning of Magda′s affair, and rallies the rest of the Bunker to mutiny later on in episode 8.
  • Historical Domain Character
  • Ice Palace
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Fegelein kills Högl by shooting at a chandelier above him, which then falls and impales him.
  • The Lancer: Reiser is this to von Witzland.
  • Large Ham
  • Lighter and Softer: Than Downfall.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Hitler goes out like this, T-1000-style.
  • Love at First Sight: Fegelein to Elsa when he sees a portrait of her.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Both Goebbels and Fegelein (or more accurately, Hans von Witzland) pull this off on Hitler.
  • Nazi Protagonist
  • Nazis With Gnarly Weapons: The Wehrmacht appears to be split; some are loyal to Hitler and his government, but there are also German soldiers in the ranks of the Antic Order.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Though this time, the hero is NOT Hitler.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Olaf fulfills this role.
  • Prince Charmless: Hans. He starts the parody by negotiating with the Soviets to seek refuge and then helps Hitler attack Arendelle and capture Elsa in exchange of being the country's ruler.
  • Reckless Gun Usage: In episode 8, Anna accidentally fires her rifle in the air thanks to poor trigger discipline, alerting the castle′s garrison of her and the Antic Order troops′ position.
  • The Reveal: Fegelein is Dead All Along; the Fegelein we′ve been seeing is actually Hans von Witzland, who survived the Battle of Stalingrad and was recruited and given a false identity by Himmler. Hitler soon finds out about the ruse.
  • Reverse Mole: Bernd Freytag von Loringhoven, whose first action is breaking Jodl out of prison. During the Antic Order's attack on the Reich Castle, he gets arrested by Günsche.
  • Revenge: The raison d′etre for Fegelein/Hans von Witzland′s antics. During the Battle of Stalingrad his commanders (and by proxy Hitler) forced him and his squad to commit atrocities and war crimes; when the battle ended with Soviet victory, he was left for (and mistaken to be) dead. However Himmler rescued him, and then gave him Fegelein′s identity after the real guy was assassinated. von Witzland at first refused to join him, but changes his mind quickly when Himmler points out that this is his chance to get his revenge on Hitler.
  • Roger Rabbit Effect: This parody relies on a combination of live-action footage with CGI animated characters and green screening. This has the side effect of sometimes causing long delays between episodes.
  • Snow Means Death: Played with; snow doesn't immediately kill Fegelein but it can incapacitate him and knock him unconscious. This is then exploited by Hitler and is the reason why this whole parody started to begin with. The final episode implies, if not outright reveals that Hitler got this idea following his defeat at Stalingrad. And after he kills Hitler, Fegelein/von Witzland succumbs to his wounds and the cold... until Elsa revives him.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: Müller, a former Antic Order soldier who defects to Hitler′s side.
  • Storming the Castle: Literally. The Antic Order launches a full-scale attack on the Reich Castle in episode 8 to rescue both Fegelein and Elsa. They were only successful in finding the former, the latter having been pushed away out of the castle by Fegelein.
  • Stuff Blowing Up
  • Tanks, But No Tanks: Hitler used T-34 tanks both to attack Fegelein and his team in the third part, and during the defense of the Southern Isles in part 5. While in real life the Germans did capture T-34 tanks from the Soviets, it's rather unclear if the tanks in this parody′s universe were supplied by the Soviets or were manufactured by the Germans to begin with. In addition, they are called the "T-37" by Goebbels.
  • Tank Goodness: Courtesy of T-34, Panzer IV, and Tiger tanks.
  • Those Wacky Nazis
  • Took a Level In Badass: Schenck, who personally leads the Antic Order′s attack on the Reich Castle.
  • Tranquil Fury: When Jodl informs Himmler about Fegelein′s capture, he quite clearly gets angered, but unlike the hammy Hitler, doesn′t launch a tirade over it.
  • Wham! Episode: Episode 7, where Fegelein gets tortured. Most of the episode is dead serious when compared to the rest of the series.
  • Yanks With Tanks: 101st Airborne soldiers aided the Antic Order in liberating the Southern Isles and Arendelle. In addition, Speer, who is revealed to be working with the U.S. military, provides him with C-47′s to paradrop Antic Order soldiers into the Reich Castle in episode 8.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Hewel reveals to Goebbels that his wife, Magda, is cheating on him, kickstarting the latter′s Heel Face Turn.
