Colonel Dietrich was ordered by Adolf Hitler to lead the Nazis in their search for the lost Ark of the Covenant in the city of Tanis. Colonel Dietrich was honored to be trusted by his Fuhrer with such an important task. He sent Major Arnold Toht to Asia to recover the headpiece of the Staff of Ra from Marion Ravenwood. While supervising the dig site, he encountered Indiana Jones in the Well of the Souls, and sealed him inside with Marion. When the Nazis opened the Ark on their secret island base, the wrath of God Himself was unleashed, and Colonel Dietrich's head was shrunk as punishment.
- In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, he is put under the Ark of the Covenant's spell and dances to a disco ball, but he avoided death by hiding inside the trash bin.
- In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, he wields a bazooka as his primary weapon.
- To unlock him in LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, you have to step on a pump to make Dietrich grow to normal size, this was because his head shrunk after looking into the Ark.
- Colonel Dietrich and Rene Belloq have a love/hate relationship.
