The Top TenXW
Though he is no older than China, he, as I seen by far, had many horrific, tragic, supernatural, scar worthy past. But as well as an interesting and amazing one.
As you know, he was an Britannia Angel, Raging Pirate, Dashing knight, Police Commander, secret spy/agent, Tempered Punk Rocker, ruling Prince, not to mention a badass sorcerer with control of black and light magic, need I go on? This means he had many experiences with war, tragedy, love, almost everything and yet he is still standing and taking it all. From the ruling of Rome, to fighting his loneliness during the beginning of his existence, to constant war between other countries (namely France), to finding out what he thought was right when he took care of his colonies, to learning to steel himself in attempt to protect himself from feeling things that will hurt him again, and his never ending worry over his people whether or not they are happy and safe.
For personality wise, England is just amazing to me. He ...more
England is one of the oldest nations but he can still kick your ass. I find England fascinating because of the various changes he has gone through his extensive history. Starting as a child being picked on by his brothers and becoming various things throughout the years. Think about everything he has been a knight, angel, secret agent, pirate, punk, soldier, gentleman, wizard, and various other things.
He has a tough exterior to hide and protect his emotions that have been hurt too many times. He's steeled himself for rejection and hurt that you have to be persistent to even get somewhat close to him. He can't be a happy person when for must of his life he's been battling for survival. He has a survivalist easy of thinking and because of that it has made him bitter and moody. But underneath that he's a kind and caring person, someone that is so desperate for affection that but had experienced almost nothing but passion and suffering. But this side still comes out but is almost ...more
Firstly he is fashionable:pirate, knight, prince (he has blue blood-monarchy), punk, mad Victorian fashionable and Japan coped it and its called Lolita how cool is that!
He had the biggest empire when he was young and beat all he's enemy's except for America but he brock his heart and made him into a Tsundere, so his feelings don't get hurt again. He has a world known city London that is thousands of years old, has lots of ghostly and horrific (black death, fire of London and all the wars including ww2 bombed England) stories (apparently every 1/5 you meet in London is a ghost) poems and songs; being a city known for its music and bands (like the Beatalls); fashion capitals, most hunted capitals, music capitals and believe me or not a food capitals (many foodies go to England for 5 star restaurants that's a FACT) beautiful countrysides and beaches and business capitals, this is just the south of England not even the other city's that are just as great and are totally different from ...more

I would have to say Russia is my favorite character, for reasons I can and can't explain, inside and outside of the series. He's like a big teddy bear! And his loneliness too, while I don't think of it perhaps as much, it does call for a sympathetic feel. A broken past he has, both in anime and in history itself. He's got a tender kindness to him, though it may be shadowed by an intimidating or 'scary' aura. I actually like that, that he has a darker side, because darkness only shows in those who've been broken... He just needs love, like anyone... Ahem- And his childish innocence! It's kinda funny and adorable! Outside of the series, I think though is the real reason I love the character. Sure, the character introduced me to the country, but then I went out of my way to learn about the country because I didn't know much of it... And for a loss of words I fell in love. The language is beautiful, the culture it amazing and powerful everywhere from the powerful Cossacks to the elegant ...more
The #1 best country, almost always seen with his long tan jacket. If you watch the show you will notice each time yo see him he is wearing that wonderful scarf his "Big Sister" gave to him. Oh... Poor poor Russia. His little sister want to marry him and has a death with for them to be together for all eternity... Although he is strong and believes he will take over the world. He loves to hear people talk because in russia everyone hated in silence... His only goo friend was his Ox. When seen in pictures of videos, drawing etc. He is holding a let pipe and a vodka bottle. His vodka is considered his "Fuel", he dreams that in the future he will Rule the world! All and all he dose have a soft side, He wants to be in a sunny place with lots of sun flowers.
A large, intimidating nation with a simplistic and easygoing personality, yet has the cruelty of a child deep down. Russia has mentally cracked from his history of war and bloodshed, however, he is unaware of his own aforementioned cruel tendencies. His greatest dream is apparently to eventually live in a warm place with sunflowers and his dearest wish is "all will become one with Mother Russia, the? ". During WWII, he had many other nations living under him as the Soviet Union, including the Baltics and his two sisters. He considers vodka to be his fuel, and is almost always shown wearing the scarf that his older sister Ukraine gave him.
I love russia is very cuteV45 Comments
South Italy's interactions with the rest of the cast is just simply pure hilarity! Not to mention his personality is endearing; yes, he curses a lot, but he's just as much of a coward as his brother. Additionally, that inferiority complex added with all his other quirks make him a fairly three dimensional character.
Romano is seriously one of the best characters in the whole show, and considering the size of the cast that's saying something. Even though he has a tough exterior and calls everyone "bastard" he's still a coward and I think that gives him a lot of depth, unlike Veneziano, who (although I love him too) has an exterior that you can see right through. Along the same lines, his feelings of inferiority next to Veneziano gives him so much dimension. I've always thought it was interesting how Romano has more character depth than Veneziano, who's weak side isn't as easy to notice because that's his only side.
He has such awesome interaction with the other characters, like with Germany and his brother. I think my favourite thing about him is his relationship with Spain and how even though it started out rocky, they ended up being brothers to each other.
Plus, Romano is just such a cutie!
Well, aside from his internal motives for doing so the fact that he insults others and acts incredibly lazy, selfish, and mean all while maintaining a hilarious character is very unique. And the fact that so many fans like him despite his numerous and obvious flaws is another bonus!
He has so many funny linesV46 Comments
He said it himself, He's AWESOME! He seems like a self-centered jerk but it's just a fail safe so no one knows how lonely he actually is... He is just one of those guys that you can't NOT like... Even if he is a jerk half the time
The older brother of Germany, who will do anything to become strong. He once represented the Teutonic Knights, but eventually became Prussia after various stages in his life as a nation. In the modern day (after his home was dissolved), he lives with Germany, though it is said that he once worked under Russia for a time.
He has a fondness for picking on Austria, which causes him to get beaten up by Hungary even in the modern day.
Prussia is the most awesome and great of the characters! He's hilarious! He has friends everywhere- America, Italy, Denmark, France... He's also part of many of the "groups", such as the Bad Touch Trio or the Awesome Trio. However, he's also a sad little man whose nation status was taken away from him, and yet he is able to survive. If you ever read his diary or listen to his songs (such as Mein Gott), you'd find that he's actually really lonely. His history is full of sad things- first being the Teutonic Knights, then Prussia, he's seen some pretty bad things. his brother Holy Roman Empire was killed, the death of Old Fritz, and Soviet Rule. His relations with other countries are very interesting as well, have you seen the way he's like with Austria, Hungary, America, or most importantly, Germany? Germany and Prussia are the best brothers there are in the world, undeniably! - popsmarts
Well he is awesomeV54 Comments
I love Alfred, because he's the HERO! He's always so blissful, super energetic and optimistic. He just makes me smile and his laugh is amazingly addicting! Despite being fully able to read the atmosphere, he chooses not to, he is really much more intelligent than he appears on the surface. He can put his people before anything else. He believes in justice, wants to make everything right. He's resilient; it's hard to make him cry. He's hot! OMGoodness my heart melts whenever he gets serious! Gotta love his voice and Texas!
It might just be because I'm biased towards my home country, but America is my favorite. Even after everything he has been through, he can still smile and laugh and enjoy life. He's funny, entertaining to be around, charismatic, brave, and probably a lot smarter than he lets on. I was listening to the song "America" by Imagine Dragons (look it up, you will not be disappointed) the other day, which led me to think of 9/11, which led me to realize how strong he has been, even after something like that has happened. Also, if he were a real person, he would be the greatest friend ever. He would be a dork with you whenever you felt like it, would give you a shoulder to cry on, cheer you up with his adorable smile whenever you got sad, try to help you out with any problems you might have (although his plans might not exactly work, at least he tries! ), and would defend you from anyone who would say anything bad about you. Also, he has gorgeous eyes, so that's an added bonus. ^_^ I don't ...more
Aw, my hero! America is so adorkably lovable and endearing! He is the perfect combination of funny, confident, sweet, handsome and adorable all rolled into one man/nation! Hehehe, and his laugh is marvelous! Watch out England because I might just steal him from you... Just kidding, hahaha... (runs and hides, dodging England's Britannia beam) please don't curse or kill me!
One of the sweetest and funniest characters on the show, in my opinion (the other one is North Italy).V51 Comments
I love Canada to pieces! I mean come on, he needs some love, he's forgotten even by his own pet polar bear! And it's sad he's always mistaken for his brother america
He's such a sweetie! I just love his passive aggressive remarks and his determination! Except I hate his bear. Why is it's name Japanese anyway? That makes no sense.
He's just too adorable, especially when he gets all flustered
Love you Mattie
He's adorable... That's it, that's enough for me to love a character.V52 Comments
Germany is one of the characters where most of the fans should look twice at. Sure, he doesn't really interact with many characters beside the axis but he still has potential beeing an awesome character. The country Germany has a lot of good relations with other nations, which isn't really shown in the series. Many fans often use Prussia for those interactions. Even if Prussia is a great character, some of us should always keep in mind that we don't always need to replace Germany with Prussia since there IS already a Germany. The second thing is Prussia is often considered for beeing East-Germany, which is kind of correct, but even if many of you probably haven't noticed, there is a great character/ex-country/state called Saxony. And yes, he is a Hetalia character. But of course, I'm not blaming anyone for not knowing Saxony, since I know that some of the Hetalia didn't even know Prussia before Hetalia. I'm not saying you should focus more on the German states, that are given in ...more
Germany is definitely my favorite character, no doubt about it and this is talking about him both as a character and country. Let me explain.
Germany is very old, dating back to as old as the Roman Empire and possibly long before that and it has connections to lot of of European countries and Languages including England and English. Of course we know that Germany itself, as in the Republic of Germany is quite new and the Germany that we know in the series probably isn't even as old as America.
And then of course we have the culture and beautiful sceneries of Germany. Most people would instantly think of Berlin or beer when it comes to Germany, but there are places that are natural and quite beautiful. Take for example the Rhine River which has amazing castles and huge vineyards stretching down its banks for miles.
Anyway onto the character APH Germany. At first people don't tend to like him, thinking that he's loud, strict and cruel to the fan-favourite Italy. ...more
I've always liked Germany, from the first episode (not lying, it was love at first sight... ) to the latest episode I've seen. He's helpful and he really does care about his friends and tries hard to make sure they're okay. People tend overlook what a great character he is. They forget what Hetalia would be like without him. Sure, he's a little to serious and a total tsundere (But that is what makes him endearing in a way. ) but he is really awesome. (Like his bro, Prussia) He's kind and just trying to make sure things go the way they should. People tend to dislike him for being so pissed all the time or for being so humorless, but think about it. Wouldn't you get pissed if your trying to get some work done, yet everyone around you seems to be doing the exact opposite? Everyone gets pissed. And being humorless? Well sometimes, the little things he says or does can be quite amusing. People like to say, "He's okay...". And I totally respect their opinions. Germany isn't as hyper and ...more
This guy is awesome. Too awesome.V27 Comments
He's such a sweetheart and I love how carefree he is. He does have quite a bit of depth if you look deeper into his character and realize that even though he's sweet and happy, he's also protective and will fight for what he loves (or who, in Romano's case). I also loved seeing his character develop after spending time with Romano, from going from a guy who only wanted an underling to actually caring for Romano. Plus, he's pretty sexy for an animated guy.
I love him. He is so cute and funny. I really like how he looks so carefree and happy all the time. And who doesn't like his cheer-up charm? It really works for me
Spain is always happy, and he tries to make everyone else happy. He is always very polite. He gets pushed around but he doesn't let that kill his kind personality. He is always so happy with a contagious happiness that even Romano can't resist, he is mainly optimistic and chatty although he does have an emo mood but that never lasts very long. When he finds something cute he is going to say it is cute and not care if people judge him for that. He also fanboyed over an old sword. If nothing else he is part of the BTT that alone makes him amazing. You have got to love the former sexy pirate Spain.
Awesome at everything!V25 Comments
The third and final major member of the Axis Powers, recruited by Germany. He is mysterious and quiet, as well as hard-working. Though he looks to be the youngest of the main three, he is in fact the oldest and acts accordingly with the behavior of an old man.
It is said that all of Japan's answers are "No", and he is rarely shown to be volatile in the series, though it is said that if enough pressure builds up, he can become very "scary" in his rage. His hobby is to read the atmosphere, assess situations, and act carefully. He has a weakness for 2D erotica and geek culture, as well as small animals.
Japan is one of the cutest characters, from his appearance to his reaction to physical contact. One thing that's amazing is that he's not very overpowered, even though the anime comes from his country. Plus... WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO BREAK HIS PERSONAL SPACE AND CUDDLE WITH HIM!?
I love all of how he answers everything in ambiguous and vague responses in the stereotypical Japanese fashion... It's hilarious. AND he's so cute, physically and in attitude. I love that episode where France went over to his house to introduce him to Western culture and Japan wouldn't come out of his room, and then when bribed by France's kitty, Japan asked that Just send in the cat
I can only use one word to describe Japan - awesome.V24 Comments
Italy is the cutest character! Who wouldn't love his cute personality? I mean, think of that sweet, innocent, pasta-loving face! Out of every anime, he is my most favorite character that I absolutely adore! Let's also not forget that he can make you smile on a rainy day. Think of what Hetalia would be without him!
Everyone believes that Northern Italy is stupid... Instead is a character (like his brother) who has suffered and is still suffering, but managed to be a good country for art, literature and science (study the history! )... And is very sweet and smart!
Do I even need to explain, who wouldn't love this adorable (slightly annoying) cinnamon roll. He's so happy all the time and he acts so childish despite his age. His country may not be powerful in arms but god damn that's not stopping him! He lost his first love and grandpa to war for all we know he may not want to fight, Especially after that he may be stronger than he seems. And this baby has been around for centuries, those dumbass country's can suck it if they think he didn't learn a thing or two, he's not stupid. He's optimistic.
How I meant Best character EVERV34 Comments
Despite being only in the manga right now, I relate to her and her mannerisms a lot.
To many people France may seem like a rapist, and I'll admit he really is a stupid perverted old man. He almost never win any war, he's a flirt, thinks his fashion and cooking is the best, he doesn't shower regularly, and he looks like a woman from the back. Oh and also, he whines a lot.
However, he has a mature and sweet side to him. He's the nation of freedom and love. I cannot help but admire the desire for revolution. I know he has a lot of bad sides to him, but these are the things the makes him interesting as a character. He's also an old country, mature, he has this "big brother" personality which is stupid but also cute. I also like his rival relationship with England, it's so stupid really, but it hints for much deeper relationship.
And well, other than that, he's really pretty and manly at the same time.
Even though a lot of people think of him as a pervert, he has stated that he doesn't believe that love should be forced upon anyone. He's a brotherly figure to the other nations, and love to show his appreciation of them in any way that he can. He's extremely flamboyant, but elegant at the same time, and knows how to joke around with other countries. His constant trolling/rivalry with England is always hilarious to watch, and there's a tragedy to his character that while he has an appreciate for the beauty, he always outlives it in his immortality, and watches those he loves, die around him constantly.
I love France, he's just a sexy little beast. In my mind, he's one of the tallest countries out there, and he's the most attractive one there. Even the little stubble is just so awesome! I think he would be the only one who knows how to rock a suit and tie. I don't understand why he's so down low on the list. And he's nOT A RAPIST. FOR GOG'S SAKE.
I'm honestly a little tired of people calling him a rapist. The show itself said that he would never force love upon people!V11 Comments
Most of these comments simply state Poland is fabulous, but I'll explain why.
It's not that he is simply a cross-dresser with a typical "valley girl" way of speaking. It goes a bit deeper. He is shown to be shy with strangers yet loud and obnoxious around his friends. Because of this one simple aspect, his character is very relatable, and thus likable. He shows what many people are like and gives others who may not be like that an insight into how others act once you get to know them.
His friendship with Lithuania is also quite adorable. It shows that different types of people can still get along just fine if not even better. Plus, how Poland acts. Sometimes he is shy and wants to bolt away from strangers, but other times he acts outgoing, even sticking up against Russia for Lithuania at one point. No one can deny that Poland really cares for his friends and has a good, strong character.
Poland is like, so totally fabulous. Plus he's like the hottest crossdresser in the world.
I felt in love with this character because of his appearance (I love anime-guys who look very feminine) and he is really funny. After I was interested in history of Poland and I began to hate Poland in skirt but still love him as character. I want more Poland in anime and manga
This should be in he top ten! Poland is really fabulousV20 Comments
How can any one not love china to bits? He been through a lot and one of the wisest characters. It's quite easy to work with him when using fanfictions. There's plenty of topics you can choose for him, raising baby nations, his young childhood (Which is really mysterious yet interesting to go into. ) and his communist years. Overall, I'm really surprised that this character isn't more popular. I'm mean, I really can't believe that Liechtenstein is more popular then one of the members of the big eight.
He is very cute and I thing he is the most look like girl in hetalia (but he will be cuter when he... with Japan, laugh out loud) And I KNOW PAN WIN GUN BECAUSE China but any way I know the word YAOI because him too that why I like China but anyway just like him!
China is an amazing character, 4000 years of wisdom, love, war, sorrow, and regret. He is most commonly known for being a very submissive character, but when you look at him outside of Hetalia he's an economic and military super power to rival America and Russia, and can be an apathetic businessman or caring parent/friend. China dominates Asian history, he invented dozens of martial arts(including kung fu), and he's an prodigious cook. Though his feminine appearance, soft spot for cuteness, and the fact he is voice acted by women may lead some to believe he is girly. You don't have to be a girl to appreciate cuteness. And for those who think he is weak, remember, he single-handedly beat Germany and Japan at the same time.But you must also remember all that he's been through, 4000 years is along time. He been through as much as France, England, and Russia combined, and then some. He even has a time period in his history call the 'Warring States' period. Even with all the going on ...more
China is the most adorable character in Hetalia for me. He is 4000 years old and still adorable. I love his personality and looks!V35 Comments
His personality is truly endearing. He is a genuinely honest and kind character, and always manages to make me go "aww". His honesty and innocence make him cute... Very cute... MORE LIKE CUTE AS HELL! While he appears a bit stupid sometimes, the way he repeats himself and changes the phrasing of the way he says things multiple times (example: I like your cat. Not that I want to steal him or anything! Don't think that! Not that I'm saying that he's not worth stealing! He is! Not that I want to! ) he is actually quite intelligent and adult-like. He can be a bit naïve, but that contributes to his sweet and positive outlook on things. He is hard working and cares very much about others. He is a bit awkward, but not in a scary way like other characters in the series. His awkwardness adorable and almost charming! While he is gentle and lovable, he shows much strength when needed, making him quite frightening to anyone who gets on his bad side!
Basically, the reason Finland is one of the ...more
He has a great relationship with people, he's cute, he's strong when it really counts, he has a AWESOME personality! In fact he's actually a lot like me!
Personally, I find Finland as a pretty relatable character, so that is why I like him so much.
Looks like a cinnamon roll but can actually kill you.V18 Comments
Cutest, hottest, strongest, laziest character ever. He's actually stronger than Germany, he loves cats, he's lazy like most of the world population, He can be absolutely adorable, he gets luckier than France, and he's always so polite! Whats not to love about him
I love Greece, who could not love cats, who could not want to be a cat!
Greece is the best it has to be number 1! If it isn't I will destroy England and every one else in Greeces way. Vote for Greece because Greece is the best character here. VOTE FOR Greece NOW!
Best and most relatable character.V6 Comments
I love Seychelles honestly as the canon charrie Nelly from south park as a Russian neko to represent myself she looks like Seychelles. Seychelles is boss for looking like a south park character and being adorable.
Seychelles deserves more love, if you ask me. She's a cheerful girl and I will never understand why anyone hated her. - AwesomePasta
If she wasn't shipped with everyone, I'm sure I'll adore herV2 Comments
You can't be hating on Hungary, I mean, she hit France with a frying pan! (She also hit everyone else with a frying pan, but hey, GIRL POWER! ) Also, she totally saved Austria's but during the Austrian succession. Plus she hits France with her frying pan. (Oh, I already said that? Well, I suppose it's awesome enough to be said again. )
A former nomad and tomboyish type of woman who was once married to Austria. Although their union ended, she still feels strongly towards him (though she had conflicted feelings under his rule).
As a child, she believed herself to be a boy until she hit puberty. She is fond of riding horses, and carries a cast-iron frying pan with her as a weapon (which she has used against both France and Prussia).
She's my first favorite girl in hetalia, Seychelles being the second and Taiwan being the third. I so love her tomboyish and feminine personality when she's with Prussia and Austria, and I ship her with both of them(since I can't decide which pairing are cuter). I don't understand why many people hate Hungary though, just like how they hate Seychelles, I mean guys she's BADASS and just like the author of the hetalia said that she's the most manliest character in hetalia which makes me love her even more! So GIRL POWER!
Seriously, who DOESN'T like to see annoying anime characters hit other annoying anime characters with frying pans?! Humor is necessary!V6 Comments
Norway is that type of character that has the potential to become one of the most deep and three dimensional character ever. It's a shame him being a marginal one. At first he seems cold and distant, then a total jerk to his best friend and a sweetie to his younger brother. You realize that he's just shy and silent, he likes quiet places and wants to be an important figure to his brother Iceland. He mocks Denmark because he's loud but also because the Dane tends to refer to himself as Iceland's big bro, which greatly bothers Norway. And here we met his soft and caring side, also worrying about Denmark, blushing at the sight of bunny plushies, teasing Iceland and playing and petting mythical creatures with England. But don't understimate him just because he has always been a sidekick: he was a Viking after all.
Not only is Norway absolutely gorgeous with his wispy blonde hair clipped back with a silver Nordic cross, he's incredibly smart and witty! His ability to use magic adds to his mysterious aura and his brotherly love for his little brother Iceland is so adorable and sweet. Not everyone can keep Denmark from doing ridiculous stunts like he can. Also, a guy like him can only reveal his emotions around his girlfriend, which is incredibly endearing.
He is really relatable, despite his 'emotionless' outside. He finds many loud people annoying, and isn't afraid to put them in their place. He finds friends based on his interests in the magic trio, and he has a brother that doesn't want to be related to him.
He is also super cute, and despite being really far into the show, we are still learning about him. Only a few episodes into World Twinkle, we discover that his nordic cross pin is also his cell phone. How cool is that?
He cares deeply about many things(including having a family, magic, and seeming strong), but he has a hard time showing his emotions. There are a ton of shy/placid people who have the same problem. He is an incredible character, and he deserves a higher place on this list.
You gotta admit, Norway is fudging adorable. And his magic is awesome! I mean, I like England and Romania, but Norway is more cool in my opinion. And it's funny to see him choke Den. And I don't know about you guys, but his stoic face is fudging adorable. Did I mention that he is fudging adorable?V19 Comments
How can anyone not love this character? In any comic strip he appears you are sure to get a laugh. His adoration for his 'aniki' is just too cute and he just seems so unaware how much of a bother he actually is to China.
Not only that, he is plenty good looking! - Sintram
South Korea's the best enough said
Uri Nara mansae the-ze! His character is always so cheerful and cute! (The groping is weird but we are all Yaoi fans here, no? )V2 Comments
A powerful Nordic nation calling himself the "King of Scandinavia", he once had control over Sweden and Finland. Denmark also considers himself to be very close to Norway, though the other feels differently.
His general attitude is that of a loud, somewhat oblivious and arrogant young man that drinks heavily.
Denmark is amazing! He really cares about his family, and they care about him too (even if they don't always show it, like Norway and Sweden). I really love the Nordic 5, but Denmark will always have a special place in my heart. - AwesomePasta
He doesn't get much screen time, but when he gets it, it always makes you wonder why he doesn't have more. He's just so caring and oblivious and adorable! I dunno, he's just cool. And adorable with Norway.V12 Comments
