Colonel Ernst Vogel was a Nazi officer who was one of the main antagonists in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.


Assigned to help recover the Holy Grail by Adolf Hitler, Vogel and Elsa Schneider tricked Indiana Jones into releasing his father's Grail diary, which was rumored to contain a map which would lead them to the Grail. When Jones and his father escaped from captivity, it became Vogel's mission to hunt them down and kill them, by the orders of Adolf Hitler himself. Vogel almost got both Joneses aboard a zeppelin airship, but Indy, who was disguised as a ticket taker, punched and threw him out the window using the excuse that he "didn't have a ticket" to the stunned passengers. Leading the Nazi expedition to the Grail Temple, Vogel recaptured Jones senior in the desert and had a large battle with Indy on a moving tank. Jones senior and Marcus Brody managed to flee the tank as it was about to drive off a chasm edge. The tank drove off the cliff with Vogel clutching onto the back of the tank turret, screaming as the tank fell, and was crushed when the tank landed.
