Best Hetalia: Axis Powers Characters

The Top Ten

1 United Kingdom

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 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

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.

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

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!

Despite being one of the youngest countries around, America shines through and through. He fought for his independence and became of the youngest superpowers ever. Despite his obvious quirks and being a jerk sometimes, he is good at heart and genuinely wants to make friends and do the right thing. His laughter is contagious and his true desire to be a hero to others is genuine. I'm also amazed at his super strength and wonder how he could get such a ability at birth? Maybe there's much more to his story than we really know... Hm

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!

Most people don't like him because he comes off as an egotistical jerk, even I didn't like him at first, but then as the series progress you start to under stand him more and relate to him. You start laughing along with his jokes and start feeling how he feels. He's not as self centered as he comes off to be either. He'll help anyone regardless if they want it or not and I admire him for that. After all the wars and troubles he's been through he can still smile and have fun. And if you think he doesn't have his deep moments look up the strip Davie.

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.

Canada is my favourite character because I mean, who doesn't like shy, adorkably cute guys with a polar bear? But there's also the fact that he's overshadowed by his 'twin', America, who everyone confuses him for. I think that Canada should get more attention, I don't know if it's because I'm Canadian myself, but he's the SECOND LARGEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. He's awesome at hockey (Gawd bless the amazing creation of Hockey) and can be incredibly scary at times. Also, not to make anyone sad, but remember WWII? And WWI? Who won the battle of Vimy Ridge? Supposedly, Canadians were incredibly fierce on the battlefield, a force to be reckoned with, that the Nazis feared. I can imagine him, blood spattered uniform, cuts all over, being one of the only ones to survive the battle. And he didn't get as many acknowledgements as he should, some were taken by UK/England as he was under their reign. He's also got the longest record for sniping, with over 1 or 2 km. Overall, I think Canada's a ...more

I really need to wonder why people won't take notice of this perfect guy called Canada. I mean, seriously... WHY?!

He's sweet, soft-spoken, and his passive aggressiveness is just too adorkable!

He's the kind of guy I'd marry.

I mean, come on... who wouldn't want to marry a guy this good looking, who is so nice, can cook really good food (hot deym pancakes and maple syrup there), and brought up by ENGLAND and France. Do you guys not know what that means?

A British upbringing means him being a gentleman and all that class and elegance probably thrown in there.

A French upbringing... *wiggles eyebrows* ohonhonhon... French side.. Need I say more? Just search the Hetalia MMD Canada WAVE--and you'll understand!

And Canada just being Canada.

Maple Syrup
Maple Leafs
Polar bears

HE'S THE ...more

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.

5 Southern 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

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.

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.

6 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 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

IT'S Poland PEOPLE! The total fab nation! The only one that truly understands what wicked hipster pink looks like!

7 Prussia

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.

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!

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.

8 France

France is such a good character and he adds a lot to the series. He's of course part of the bad touch trio with Prussia and Spain! (iconic) He's a little bit perverted but he's a great character and he'll always be in the top 10 for me! I don't like that he gets a lot of people calling him a rapist. I think all in all he cares about his friends.

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.

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.

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 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 the best character in my opinion. 1. He may seem tough and perhaps a little harsh at times. But he does actually care about others (just his friendship with Italy proves it, Feli would drive me mad sometimes). Also we all saw how Germany felt when he though Italy died in Series 4. He also trained his allies to treat others with respect and kindness. And he wanted Japan to be healthy and went on a diet with him. 2. He is easily flattered, which is adorable. Whenever Italy makes something for Germany he is always deeply touched because they were "hand-made" or Italy "pulled an all-nighter". However, Germany often finds the "gifts" useless. So... 3. He is smexyyy. Hair, eyes, height, voice, need I go on? 4. He's funny. Even though he my not realise it his seriousness and strictness can be amusing especially when contrasted with Italy's lazy, slobbish attitude. 5. He's cute when he tries to express his feelings of love. He may seem tough on the outside but is actually really ...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.

There is more depth in this character of Spain than most realize. Despite the fact he seems daft and clueless, he is on guard (even if it doesn't seem that way). One thing admire is his façade which seems genuine. Some may say he's too good to be true, but if you read the little hints here and there he is so much more! ((The on guard thing is actually written in the manga World Stars))

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 Japan

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

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.

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

12 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.

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.

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.

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.

13 Northern 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.

14 Finland

"And they're junk is BLURRY!"
Sorry, first quote that came into my head...

"Why are you smiling, it creeps me out!"

He's so cute, my most adorable Hetalia character (apart from the chibis)

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

Everything about Finland just screams endearing and his personality is so charming despite his strength and past.
I was captivated by Iceland at first by his appearance (hi this is a sucker for white/grey/light-haired cinammon rolls) but soon I found myself so drawn to how down-to-earth and kind and positive Finland was.
Really, he is one of the most relatable characters I have ever known.
Who could possibly say no to Timo?

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.

15 China

I just don't understand why people don't like him! He has experienced so much, yet still so young, being cute and mysterious at the same time... I really hope he can have more shots.

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 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

, people, why don't you notice him? During the film, I think he is even more "invincible" than Canada, eventhough he is one of the MAIN characters. And, don't you think that he is super cute? Yes, he may has the "woman's figure", but you don't see him as a cutie? Wow, I mean, WOW. Doesn't his cutieness appeal to you? Not a little bit? Also, althought he is small, but he is super BAD-ASS! He beats Germany (with his gun) and Japan (with his katana) by just a laddle and a wok! I mean, "what? No impressions on someone who beats the others with just a wok? " And yeah, maybe he is old but he is beautiful, isn't he? HE LOOKS EVEN YOUNGER THAN ENGLAND--

16 Seychelles

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.

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.

Seychelles deserves more love, if you ask me. She's a cheerful girl and I will never understand why anyone hated her.

If she wasn't shipped with everyone, I'm sure I'll adore her

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 is loyal, strong, beautiful, smart and BADASS. Her character has evolved from a mischievous tomboy into a rather femenine lady with motherly and over-protective tendencies. Behind her love for romance and her desire to become a perfect wife, she still has a burning passion, bravery and stubborness. She's a three dimentional character that can be explored and isn't always the same old picture. She's cool, she's interesting, she's the type of woman who couldbe a leader if she wanted to.

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...

He's just so amazing! He's so oblivious to others it's just adorable and funny! He's so dedicated to Norge and really does want the best for his family (even if it doesn't seem like it) and he's always in a happy mood! Every time he's in a comic, he never fails to make me smile with his charismic personality! I really think he's the best and deserves more love and attention!

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!

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.

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.

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 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? )

South Korea's the best enough said

21 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

He is so cuttteee

22 Italy

He's so cute! Pasta!

Italy FOR the WIN!


How could he be so adorable?

23 Greece

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.

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!

24 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!

25 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!

I mean a cute loli girl that always are with her onii-sama, isn't that cute? Liechtenstein for the wiin! Yay!
