Top 10 Best Hetalia: Axis Powers Characters

The Top Ten
1 England

England has, and always will be, my favourite Hetalia character. He represents my own country (United kingdom/England) has the best eyebrows in the history of eyebrows. He is several thousand years old yet is immortal and looks 22/23. He has been an angel, Pirate, King, Knight, been in several wars (civil included) Raised America, Sealand and Canada, been a Police Commander, Master of dark and light magic, Secret agent/spy, Punk/rock star etc. He is now a gentleman and I have great respect for him. He grew up with his brothers who teased him and were mean to him (Bad Scotland, Wales and Ireland! I hope Ireland didn't teach Northern Ireland to be like that! )

Arthur Kirkland, you are the best Hetalia character. Ever.

I actually kinda have a extremely large crush on him.

England is known through out Hetalia, he is loved by many and dislike by some, he is a Great power, has one of the strongest army's and had been through more wars than France has groped him. but what really gets me about England is his family, friends and foes and his relations with them.

France is (though is never admitted) England's best friend the two have a rich history together, Germany being England and him both coming from the same ancestor. China and their relationship about taking care of Hong Kong. but mostly how he treated his beloved colonies, he raised them like children and still worries for them today no matter what.

Arthur Kirkland, carry on old chap *salutes*

What more can you ask for in a guy? He may be your typical character for a tsundere, but he is incredibly sexy and wise. Much like Gokudera Hayato in Katekyo Hitman Reborn. Both are smart, both have their punk phase, and they're badass as hell. They make for better story-line (except Gokudera annoys me to some extent). Whereas one difference between the two, I don't get annoyed by England, or the United Kingdom. Though he would probably force you to never call him 'Iggy' and say his full name 'United Kingdom of Northern Ireland' or something along the lines.

But I digress. However, I do quite enjoy his magic and I wouldn't mind him putting a spell on me.

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

2 Russia

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 feel like it's impossible not to love him, everything is perfect about him! He's so sweet and childish, a kind smile, and just wants a friend. Seeing all sorts of songs he sings like 'White Flame' and 'Winter', you can feel loneliness in him. I think all who loves Russia would really just want to show him he isn't feared of, and is loved. He has the most adorable face, and seemingly shy and happy personality. When he grows darker and scarier, I think it adds more character to him, to say he isn't perfect, he has flaws, like everyone else. His love of sunflowers is is so innocent and sweet. I remember him telling Lithuania about his dreams, filled with sunflowers and friends. Russia just has a heart of gold, with a few scratches.

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

3 America

Honestly, as an American, this character might be one of the best representations of the U.S. that I've ever seen. His personality is well-balanced. We get a LOT of exposure to his brash, arrogant side, but we also see enough of his sensitivity and childlike optimism to know that he isn't all that meets the eye. I also think he's hilarious. He reflects American stereotypes so accurately that it hurts, but even putting that aside, he has some amazing one-liners and interactions with other characters. In the end, he gives me hope for my country. He gives me hope that I'll see more people out there with his optimism and enthusiasm.

Alfred is the greatest! He is the most positive amazing person ever. He has an interesting foreshadowed past and is adorable as a colony. Then after he separated from England, he has become a superpower. He is always positive and does what he wants beyotch! He is loud and his ideas are funny and cool. He is so young so of course he is like this. America is proud and happy. He is always there to lighten the mood. Plus he's played by Eric Vale which is cool. He is so awesome he has an alien friend named Tony. Come on! If you don't at least like America's personality of looks I don't know, cause he is my HERO!

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!

Alfred just rocks! Despite all he's gone through he still has the strength to put a smile on his face and reach out to others in friendship. He is unique, goofy, kind, confident, strong, endearing... He is just a wonderful and amazing man! Alfred is also very intriguing, on the surface he appears to be adorkably oblivious to what is going on around him, but there are moments where it shows that he is hiding parts of how he truly feels/thinks under his obliviousness. To me he uses his oblivious, silly and overconfident nature to build a wall/protective barrier up around himself, hiding how he truly feels about those he cares about (I see this especially when it comes to Arthur)…I feel as though he tries to love and protect those around him at a distance, because he is afraid he might hurt them in some way. To me Alfred is tragically fascinating because he hides his hurt and pain behind a smile. He doesn't want to burden and hurt anyone with his past or with the choices he might have ...more

4 Canada

I know it will sound bias, as I am Canadian, but I love him only second to Prussia. His soft personality, caring attitude and just being outright adorable, all these things are wonderful traits to have. Most of the characters in Hetalia are loud and overbearing with abrasive personality's, or way to much screen time. Canada is a character that you can like on your own term wit hut being pressured by shippers (USUK) or crazy fan girls who pay no attention to the plot. He is accused of being a Mary-Sue, but honestly Germany is more of a Mary-Sue then Canada is, which is not at all really. Just because he is not loud or scary does not make him weak or useless. It brings balance to a show full of chaotic and aggressive characters, much like what Japan as a character provides.

I love Matthew! I mean, the poor guy is lonely because everyone forgets about him, even his own pet can't remember his name! He doesn't have that much friends, or any, but his quiet personality makes him a sweet and lovable character that everyone feels sorry for.

Canada is the best! He and his brothers make the best team. Calm and collected, he is so adorable. His polar bear and everyone forgetting him is so funny, sad and cute. Cause he almost always whispers and is so adorable, like America.

Canada, where do I begin? Why did he receive all of the hate in this anime? Matthew is super-kawaii and he deserves to be noticed by people. Why ignore him? Canadians may be forgotten at times but no one can forget what the Canadians are capable of, especially in the world wars. Remember, when Kumajirou asks,

5 South Italy

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!

Romano is such a unique character because he is so relatable to the average person, and that makes him feel real. I relate to him on a bit of a personal level when it comes to personality and the way he handles things. He is an emotional storm, and often snaps at people, is blatantly rude, and pushes away people. He feels inferior to his brother in a way, and that makes him both love his precious brother and hate the fact that he feels like he's 'so much better' and the attention that Feli often gets makes him feel second best, or unwanted. His brother is very extroverted and sociable, naturally drawing people and making him very likeable, something he is upset over because he feels disliked, and not as important. His complex makes him feel insecure and paranoid over what people think of him, so he pushes his internal anger out at them. He desires to be noticed, and does this through a negative way. He also is often selfish, pessimistic, and lazy. He is however, intelligent, and truly ...more

He's so underappreciated, he deserves a lot more, damn he's Rome after all! His inferiority complex and the way he defends himself from others by cursing and keeping them away, it's just something that many people out there could relate to. That's what got me. Also I'm Italian, I know that South Italy it's not really like that... If Himaruya did a realistic portrait, then Lovi would be smiling. But aside of that, he's so beautiful, not just cute like Feliciano, but truly beautiful.

I think literally everyone can relate to Southern Italy a.k.a Romano, we have all had that point in our lives when we have been told that someone is better than us. Romano has had to live with that his whole life, constantly beaten by Northern Italy he has never once been told he is better yet he still loves his fratello and doesn't let the fact that Veniziamo constantly outshines him ruin their relationship. Other than that he is so funny, his use if swearing is hilarious and he is possible the most tsundere person in the world. Forgetting all that the scence where he holds a mustache to his face is probably the most epic fail ever and just makes you love him more, he is an overprotective, swearing tomato ans that is why we all love Romano.

6 France

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.

France is the personification of the country of love...he may as well be the personification of Love itself. Of course, his hands do seem to wander and he is an open pervert but I'm sure that so is every other character. It's isn't really anything new. He's just open about his love, and what's to make sure everyone feels that way as well. A character that's gone through, so,so much and angst is real. (I'll never get over Jeanne D'Arc) What's more tragic than the country of love who isn't allowed to do so? It really is unfair the amount of hatred people seem to give him. Yes, he's a pervert...but everyone has their quirks no? And a rapist, at that? He himself has said so many times that love should not be forced upon others. Why would he do such a thing? Further more, if you firmly deny such affections he does indeed stop any attempts that would make you uncomfortable. He wants everyone to feel loved and beautiful...and personally, I don't see that as too much to ask.

One of the most mature and confident countries out there, for sure. I will say, as a French person, all of the jokes and sexual nature come from a good place and loving heart, and we really do see it as humor or an art (flirting). I would also wish to add that France has one of the most successful militaries in Europe, look it up! I love France because he knows when to have fun and when to use his intellecual side. He has many talents and he is so smart, though the doesn't show it! His sense of style is on point, better than the UK I will argue (I mean... I'm not biased because I'm french). He's an amazing character who I feel is also the best because he isn't afraid to be flawed as a character and that's really important, knowing it's okay to be flawed. France is someone who can be looked up to and someone who really is the most important aspect of the anime.

7 Poland

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.

I love him a lot. Pol is my bae. I have a total obsession with him. He is so fabulous and so hot. His arrogant, yet cheerful and shy personality is so perfect. And he has a beautiful voice. He is such an amazing character who needs more love. He should appear more in the series. I have a huge crush on Feliks. He needs to become a living person so I can marry him!

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

Poland is totally a weird yet strange cross dresser but, that's what make me like him, he is a funny one, too... I like how the way he talks, and it's funny too seeing him shy towards stranger

8 Prussia

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!

Prussia is awesome, he literally refuses to die, people pick on him for his appearance but he just doesn't care and declares himself awesome, I feel like often he isn't depicted as his true character which honestly has quite a cute and kind side. He has an awesome bird called Gilbird he is part of the most awesome group in all eternity which is the BTT which is more awesome than the awesome trio though Prussia is in that too. He doesn't let that fact that no one wants him as a country anymore get him down instead his focuses on helping his brother be the best country he can. He loves beer, he's obnoxious and he's awesome. It is impossible not to admit he is awesome.

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.

Ok, prussia is just... AWESOME!
You've gotta love the attitude and his ego. I just makes me laugh seeing someone who I can relate to like that.
I always enjoy watching him pick on austria and go off about being awesome.
Besides, he's part of my favorite trio, the BTT, and he's just one of those people.

He deffinaetly deserves to be in the top ten because he is one of the most intresting, hilarious, and totally attractive characters I have ever witnessed... Not just in hetalia, but in anime itself.

9 Germany

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

Germany is hot, dependable, strong, reliable, capable and smart. He also tries his best to help and support Italy who is useless as a country. He has Prussia as his brother and actually gets along with him whereas most others cannot.
He always does his best to give a hundred percent for his allies like when he joined Japan on his diet because he didn't think it was right to set him on that diet by himself.
His tsundere side is endearing and without him the other countries couldn't even get through a single successful meeting.
I think if Russia and Prussia teamed up with him the three of them could take over the world easy, (maybe with a bit of help from Sweden).
Anyway I love this big softie.

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

10 Spain

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.

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.

Spain is cute and sweet. Even his voice is soft, charming and tender. His personality, will to smile and to face things as good as possible is so gratifying. He works hard, he loves passionately and he has a protective instinct that makes me love him. Although his painful past (and his bipolar personality according to Himaruya), he always takes the courage to keep trying and making someone else happy.

That's the kind of person you want to by your side.

I love him, the way he is so affectionate with Romano and his sweet smile.. But even more the even after all the hardships he have been through, he is able to keep on smiling and protecting whatever he considered precious. He is the one bearing the darkest past and the brightest smile. Plus, he's DAMN sexy! Fusososososo!

The Contenders
11 North Italy

Northern Italy may be a coward on the battlefield, but that doesn't mean he isn't an amazing character.

I've always been drawn to characters who put on a smile even through their pain. When I think of that, I picture North Italy for sure.

How can he be so cheerful and bubbly, and so harmonious despite the ever-gloomy past of falling in live with HRE and making friends with the person who looks like the grown up version of him? (Germany)

I won't ever understand, but there is definitely some bravery, in that 'little coward'.

He's so caring, and just wants to make friends with everyone. What really is the harm in that? There really isn't.

If you really think about it, Italy is a very deep character. My favorite headcanon about him is that he is depressed, but always hides it with a fake smile because he doesn't want to worry anyone. Have you ever read read The Hetalia Theory? I think Italy's is the saddest. In one of the episodes of Axis Powers in the dub, Germany was leaving for a little bit, and Italy said, "No! Don't leave! My medication is wearing off! "...what medication? It's canon that Italy has a fear of people leaving him, probably because HRE and Rome died when he was just a kid. Therefore, I am guessing that the medication he took was anti depressants and/or anxiety medication. Definitely my favorite Hetalia character, and it will stay that way for a long time.

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.

I don't know why, but I just feel so attached to Italy! He is just so cheerful and hilarious! (Also we both have something in common, how useless we are). He is artistic, musical, and is practically good in everything that involves creativity (And I appreciate him for that). If I were to be honest, Hetalia would be very boring without him.

12 Japan

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.

I think he's the most realistic guy in the hetalia universe. He didn't act silly too much and always think before doing anything. He chooses the best for his country and his own good. Although he seems so antisocial but he's actually wants some friends. He always got the wrong impression as in episode 36 when he thought switzerland is yahoho tralala. He is a typical normal japanese guy and absolutely an otaku. His calm and sometimes overreacted expression after got culture shocked is very funny and makes him wanted to discover the world more. He's very polite unlike the others and well mannered which I really liked about him. Instead of becoming enemy for a long term with the allies, he gained a friendship with them and being honest with them. He really cared about others such as not giving a comment to america and agrees with him so that america wouldn't get irritated and how he understands the true nature of england himself. His serious but weird personality is what makes me like ...more

Ah well. I have a lot to say about this character. First of all, I would clip to the fact that Hima actually was willing to make fun of his own country and not just the rest. People say that he might be Gary Stu in some ways, but I do see many flaws in the character. Secondly, without him, there will be no anime or manga. Last but not least, his country itself is beautiful. It has a rich culture and history and remains as an otaku's favorite counter. So Japan for the win!

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

13 Finland

Finland should be higher up the list. He's funny, kind, adorable... he's amazing. How could you dislike him? I know that he really cares about the other Nordics, and Sealand. I love Finland to pieces, and I never will understand why some people dislike him. What's not to like about him? I mean, he's Santa! Finland is amazing.

Finland. One of my favorite Nordics, no, countries. He is adorable, why is this only 14? Raise it up! He's kind, hardworking, and honest, more than most of the Nordics will ever be(even though rest assured I love all of Scandinavia). He's adorable. Did I say that already? Whatever, no one can say that he's not cute, at least to my face. His name-giving skills make Finland even cuter. This guy needs more votes.

Finland. One of my favorite Nordics, no, my favorite countries. He's hardworking, kind, and honest, which is much more than most of the Nordics will ever be(even though I love all of Scandinavia! ). And who could say that Finland is not cute? His name-giving skills just adds on to the cuteness. Why don't most people vote this?

His personality is truly endearing. He is genuinely honest and kind, and always manages to make me go "aww". His honesty and innocence make him cute... Very cute... MORE LIKE CUTE AS HELL! While he may appear a bit stupid at times, the way he repeats himself and changes the phrasing of his words 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!") shows that he is actually quite intelligent and mature. He can be a bit naïve, but that contributes to his sweet and positive outlook on things. He is hardworking and cares deeply about others. He may be a bit awkward, but not in a scary way like other characters in the series. His awkwardness is adorable and almost charming! While he is gentle and lovable, he shows great strength when needed, which can be quite frightening to anyone who gets on his bad side!
Basically, the reason Finland is ...more

14 Lithuania

Lithuania gives us what is vacant in most animes- a normal, average guy. He works hard and is happy and content with what he has. Many people need to learn from this example. His life can be relatable to people because of this, and relatability is important when it comes to popular characters. He is kind, patient, and, as already mentioned, hard working. He is nice to all characters, no matter how obnoxious, and can put up amazingly well with their oddities. He's also friends with Poland, who is a unique individual. A mini strip about them reveals a bit about Lithuania's past, which gives him some more depth as a character. Overall, he's just a regular guy! He thinks about things that matter and manages to be friends with almost anyone.

I'm just gonna leave this comment here because I know most people see these characters based on how they are portrayed in the anime. In the anime, he is just an average guy who is a servant at Russia's house. However looking deeper into the comic strips reveals a lot of character depth for him. I won't go into anything because of spoilers and such, but I highly recommend you read the strips about him.

Why is liet so long on the list?

He is such a complex character which is more than I can say for a lot of the other main characters. He may look girly but meet liet on the battlefield and you're dead meat.

Doesn't anyone remember the Battle of Grunwald? His teamwork with Poland in order to trick Teutonic Knights is one of the best things to have happened in the anime. Not to mention that beside his tactician side, he is also a very caring big brother like figure and a friend to Poland. Hell even Russia trusts him and liet was with him during the Bloody Sunday strip. In addition to that, there is also America and his alien so that makes liet a very popular character.

Lithuania is adorable and sweet, and plus, he seems like an average kind of person. He puts up with all the crazy people around him and tries to be nice to them. Unlike some of the other characters, he's not insane or obnoxious, but he's still nice to those who are like that.

15 China

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.

China is adorable, seriously, he likes Hello Kitty and Pandas for goodness sake. That, and I think nobody shows this guy enough love or respect, he's constantly bullied by the Allies, Russia always stalks him and wants him to become one with Mother Russia, Japan betrayed China and he has a nasty scar on his back from Japan's katana.

Underrated too, like I see England EVERYWHERE, as USUK, FRUK or whoever else people pair him with. GerIta is featured quite a lot too, but China gets the worst deal, a betrayer (Japan) or a creepy stalker (Russia)

Plus he's wise, mature, he has dragons, pandas, he looks amazing, he can kick some serious ass especially with his wok and ladle! And his marukaite chikyuu is perfect!

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 such an awesome character! He's strong, he's respectful, he's an amazing cook, and he takes nobody's crap! I love the scene in World Series where Russia says, "Aww, be nice to him boys. Besides, how going to come live with me! " And China replies frantically, "NOO! " God I couldn't stop laughing! I love watching China on the show. Overall, he's a great character and he's my personal favorite!

16 Seychelles

Why people hate her is petty- She doesn't get in the way of the FrUk- In fact, she makes it better. I honestly view her as the endearing little sister to both of them. Seychelles is an amazing country once you get to know her.

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.

Not a yaoi killer

17 Hungary

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!

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).

Hungary just makes me smile. Whether she's having dinner with Austria, beating the crud out of Prussia's army, dressing Chibitalia up in one of her old dresses, or talking about historical fashion with Ukraine and Liechtenstein, I just can't help but smile. She's a well-balanced character with an upbeat, confident presence, and I'd like to see more of her.

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. )

18 Denmark

He's such a sweetheart and so cute! He is loud and obnoxious, but that just makes him more lovable. He never gives up on anything, he keeps his cheery demeanor, he a VIKING, the king of Northern Europe, need I sat more? Also the fact that people sat he's an idiot really upsets me. He's the happiest country on the world, even though he's been through more than lots of other countries. And he keeps up his cheery personality to make others around him happy, even though he's been through some. Hell, he's almost as old as Rome If you really think about it. One more thing I must add, he's hot and cute if that's even possible.

I love Denmark! I'm from Denmark, I was waiting for his character to show up on the show and when he did I was really pleased. It is true, we are a very proud country but we are also the happiest and kindest country I know of. Which is exactly what Denmark represented in Hetalia, he should really be #1 on the list. I love Denmark and he will always be in a special place in my heart. I'd have to say I'm proud to be a Dane.

Denmark... is truly a special character. Most people probably think of him as loud and annoying at first glance, and yes. He CAN be loud and annoying. But, he is also hardworking, strong, kind, and caring. I don't understand why he doesn't normally get as much love as the other Nordic... and plus, he's adorable. Denmark is awesome! Maybe almost as awesome as Prussia...

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.

19 Norway

Norway is a type of character that you wonder about. Like the hot, sexy or adorable strangers on the streets. But at the same time, you can feel and see how much family means to him. He doesn't care what people say about him believing in magic, and that gives me strength to not give a damn about what people say about me. He is relatable. We all have probably built up a wall and showed either no emotions or just one emotion. (Personally I have went Norway style 80% of the time) we are scared to show what we really feel.
His past as a Viking wasn't exactly... You know (for those of you that know Viking history). But he has a calm side, and that proves that you can change, even though I'd bet that his smiles are beautiful. If we ever see him smile or laugh we feel special. I guess that's one if the reasons that I love him so much!

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.

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.

20 Latvia

He's such a cutie! And in my option he's so sweet! I really wish he'd get more love I like him because he's like a big brother to seal and

He is the youngest of the Baltics, but still tries to stand up to Russia. He's like the cutest of the cute!

Latvia is the best

21 Korea

I LOVE Korea! I just wish that the Japanese creators behind the character were more accurate about Korean culture. Like, he should say "hyung" instead of "aniki" and have a personality more realistic towards Korean stereotypes. Such as being an awkward romantic, or something out of a K-drama type personality. Please make a more accurate character and put him in the anime! I'm begging you!

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!

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? )

22 Belgium

Belgium, although is an easily forgotten character, is one of the first characters to show up on the show. She has so many pairings, I can't even count them. Go Belgie Chan!

Belgium is so often forgotten and deserves more love! She is so nice and cute and I wish I knew her in real life...

Belgium needs more love! Too many people forget about her.

She is so sweet and adorable!

23 Greece

I love his personality and everything about him. Sure, I may not be a fan of cats, but that doesn't stop me from loving him. APH Greece honestly deserves more love just like other Hetalia characters, and not just the main ones like England or some like take a look at these adorable and likable characters for once.

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

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!

I just want to call him out for being able to sleep while everyone else is yelling like the most I can do with noise around me is when the TV's on with the volume at 15.

24 Liechtenstein

In my opinion, Liechtenstein deserves more love. She was so grateful for the fact that Switzerland saved her dying of famine that she changed the way she looked just to prove to him that she respects him beyond words. Her loyalty to Switzerland is something that shouldn't be taken lightly, and besides all of that she's just so sweet, innocent, and adorable, and in all honesty, Liechtenstein is an awesome country.

Come on now, Liechtenstein and Switzerland shouldn't be separate votes! They're just adorable. Their interactions were the best part of hetalia and it's just so nice. My 2nd vote would definitely be Switzerland.

She is the cutest thing I have ever seen and her fashion sense is awesome and she needs to be higher! And it's so nice that switzerland took him in!

Underrated, but just adorable.

25 Sweden

Aw, Sweden needs more love. I can't be the only one who thinks that he's adorable, can I? I mean, really. I hate to bring pairings into this, but look at all the things he does for his "wife". He was willing to sew clothes, sit in a corner, etc. He's even a father. Sweden looks like such a serious person, but he's actually well-intentioned and just a little socially awkward.
Not only that, but he can also be a serious BAMF. A pretty sexy one, if I do say so myself.

Sweden's most definitely the best character! He may look cold-hearted and hostile, but in reality, he's nothing but a big fluffy teddy bear! He's adorably socially awkward, and he's extremely generous and caring. He really deserves to be higher on the list. Su-San for the win!

Such a great character, I don't think people realize! He is a person that so many can relate to, with his social awkwardness and not very talkative spirit. On top of that he is LORD MERCY DEAD hot. Who wouldn't love him?

Sweden is amazing. He doesn't get enough love! He's just misunderstood, and shy! But I think that makes him special! He's a really cool character, and really seems to care for Finland. Sweden is love. Sweden is life
