Over the years, major parody makers have moved on from the original scene (it's getting monotonous) and went on to create parodies from other scenes from the movie, collectively known as Downfall Parodies. A separate parody universe have been developed, and Fegelein become wildly known as the master prankster, pissing Hitler off countless times.
Downfall parodies can be divided into 3 catagories, Rants, Plans and Pranks (aka Antics):
- Rants involve Hitler talking forcefully about an issue in general. Often in these parodies, Hitler is informed about something he does not like and proceeds to give a lecture about how he hates the event. Popular Downfall scenes for Rants are "The Original Bunker Scene", "Hitler Eating Scene", "Hitler Reviews Scene" and "Pros and Cons with Hitler Scene".
- Plans - These parodies almost always begin with the "Hitler Plans Scene". The parodies show Hitler planing to do something and reacting to Alfred Jodl's objections. The parody may end on a loose note or scenes can also be included which show the plan actually being carried out. In a significant proportion of parodies, the plan is revealed to end in failure, with someone conveying the failure message to Hitler, which most often results in a Rant.
- Pranks - This scene involves a prank or antic being carried out against Hitler. Most often, the parody depicts Hitler being informed about something done to sabotage him which result in him Ranting. Some parodies go to the extent of showing the actual prank, and then Hitler commenting about them. Popular scenes antics include "Hitler is Informed (about Goring) Scene", "Hitler Dining Scene", "The Original Bunker Scene", "Hitler is Phoned Scene", and most commonly "Hitler is Informed (by Gunsche) Scene" by a wide margin. The antic doer is most often shown to be Fegelein, although other characters like Himmler, Speer, Traudl, the generals and characters outside the Downfall universe are involved as well.
The parodies had developed its own universe, the characters have shaped distinct personalities and other films have been increasingly tied to into this parody universe.
The Downfall parody makers, as a community, converge in the Downfall Parodies forum, where current topics, suggestions and technical issues are discussed. There's also a Hitler Parody Wiki which aim to provide extensive information on the parodies.
