Best Hetalia: Axis Powers Characters

The Top Ten Best Hetalia: Axis Powers Characters

1 United Kingdom

Though he is no older than China, he, as I seen by far, had many horrific, tragic, supernatural, scar worthy past. But as well as an interesting and amazing one.

As you know, he was an Britannia Angel, Raging Pirate, Dashing knight, Police Commander, secret spy/agent, Tempered Punk Rocker, ruling Prince, not to mention a badass sorcerer with control of black and light magic, need I go on? This means he had many experiences with war, tragedy, love, almost everything and yet he is still standing and taking it all. From the ruling of Rome, to fighting his loneliness during the beginning of his existence, to constant war between other countries (namely France), to finding out what he thought was right when he took care of his colonies, to learning to steel himself in attempt to protect himself from feeling things that will hurt him again, and his never ending worry over his people whether or not they are happy and safe.

For personality wise, England is just amazing to me. He ...more

England is one of the oldest nations but he can still kick your ass. I find England fascinating because of the various changes he has gone through his extensive history. Starting as a child being picked on by his brothers and becoming various things throughout the years. Think about everything he has been a knight, angel, secret agent, pirate, punk, soldier, gentleman, wizard, and various other things.

He has a tough exterior to hide and protect his emotions that have been hurt too many times. He's steeled himself for rejection and hurt that you have to be persistent to even get somewhat close to him. He can't be a happy person when for must of his life he's been battling for survival. He has a survivalist easy of thinking and because of that it has made him bitter and moody. But underneath that he's a kind and caring person, someone that is so desperate for affection that but had experienced almost nothing but passion and suffering. But this side still comes out but is almost ...more

Firstly he is fashionable:pirate, knight, prince (he has blue blood-monarchy), punk, mad Victorian fashionable and Japan coped it and its called Lolita how cool is that!
He had the biggest empire when he was young and beat all he's enemy's except for America but he brock his heart and made him into a Tsundere, so his feelings don't get hurt again. He has a world known city London that is thousands of years old, has lots of ghostly and horrific (black death, fire of London and all the wars including ww2 bombed England) stories (apparently every 1/5 you meet in London is a ghost) poems and songs; being a city known for its music and bands (like the Beatalls); fashion capitals, most hunted capitals, music capitals and believe me or not a food capitals (many foodies go to England for 5 star restaurants that's a FACT) beautiful countrysides and beaches and business capitals, this is just the south of England not even the other city's that are just as great and are totally different from ...more

He and Japan are tied for my favorite, though if I had to choose I would choose him.
It's kind of hard for me to explain why he is my favorite. But, I guess it would mostly be because of his quirkiness.
every time he is on screen I laugh because of how ridiculous it is, though he takes it 100% seriously. It makes me admire the character because he entertains me.
But on top of that, there's still his history.(which, from what I've noticed, is most people's reason as well) While he doesn't have as tragic of history as other countries in the world, far from it, his character stems from that. We see England, someone who was constantly brought down from his older brothers, to be incredibly insecure of everything. We see America leave him and hurt his trust. (And no, I am not saying 'uwu poor bby he deserved better', the revolution happened because England was taxing the colonies a lot and not taking care of them, but I digress) We see how he reacts to these things, like him ...more

2 Russia

I would have to say Russia is my favorite character, for reasons I can and can't explain, inside and outside of the series. He's like a big teddy bear! And his loneliness too, while I don't think of it perhaps as much, it does call for a sympathetic feel. A broken past he has, both in anime and in history itself. He's got a tender kindness to him, though it may be shadowed by an intimidating or 'scary' aura. I actually like that, that he has a darker side, because darkness only shows in those who've been broken... He just needs love, like anyone... Ahem- And his childish innocence! It's kinda funny and adorable! Outside of the series, I think though is the real reason I love the character. Sure, the character introduced me to the country, but then I went out of my way to learn about the country because I didn't know much of it... And for a loss of words I fell in love. The language is beautiful, the culture it amazing and powerful everywhere from the powerful Cossacks to the elegant ...more

The #1 best country, almost always seen with his long tan jacket. If you watch the show you will notice each time yo see him he is wearing that wonderful scarf his "Big Sister" gave to him. Oh... Poor poor Russia. His little sister want to marry him and has a death with for them to be together for all eternity... Although he is strong and believes he will take over the world. He loves to hear people talk because in russia everyone hated in silence... His only goo friend was his Ox. When seen in pictures of videos, drawing etc. He is holding a let pipe and a vodka bottle. His vodka is considered his "Fuel", he dreams that in the future he will Rule the world! All and all he dose have a soft side, He wants to be in a sunny place with lots of sun flowers.

A large, intimidating nation with a simplistic and easygoing personality, yet has the cruelty of a child deep down. Russia has mentally cracked from his history of war and bloodshed, however, he is unaware of his own aforementioned cruel tendencies. His greatest dream is apparently to eventually live in a warm place with sunflowers and his dearest wish is "all will become one with Mother Russia, the? ". During WWII, he had many other nations living under him as the Soviet Union, including the Baltics and his two sisters. He considers vodka to be his fuel, and is almost always shown wearing the scarf that his older sister Ukraine gave him.

I adore him as he really embodies my motherland. Some words about Russia's mindset. For many Russians concepts "home", "parent", "God", "self-sacrifice", "fatalism", "struggle for life", "hope" and "love" are merged into concept "Russia". Throughout all its history Russia has been in the incoherent multitude of his emotions as well as most of Russians. Foreigners consider it as insanity.
Back to the cartoon. Russia really behaves like most Russians do. Not all, of course. We don't usually run to such extremes. Russia wants to be a part of the world and enjoy other countries'company, but still he feels awkward and often faces misunderstanding. When he feels danger or disrespect he becomes furious. Still he's adorably nice when he's in a good mood. His appearance is both likeable and cute.

3 America

I love Alfred, because he's the HERO! He's always so blissful, super energetic and optimistic. He just makes me smile and his laugh is amazingly addicting! Despite being fully able to read the atmosphere, he chooses not to, he is really much more intelligent than he appears on the surface. He can put his people before anything else. He believes in justice, wants to make everything right. He's resilient; it's hard to make him cry. He's hot! OMGoodness my heart melts whenever he gets serious! Gotta love his voice and Texas!

It might just be because I'm biased towards my home country, but America is my favorite. Even after everything he has been through, he can still smile and laugh and enjoy life. He's funny, entertaining to be around, charismatic, brave, and probably a lot smarter than he lets on. I was listening to the song "America" by Imagine Dragons (look it up, you will not be disappointed) the other day, which led me to think of 9/11, which led me to realize how strong he has been, even after something like that has happened. Also, if he were a real person, he would be the greatest friend ever. He would be a dork with you whenever you felt like it, would give you a shoulder to cry on, cheer you up with his adorable smile whenever you got sad, try to help you out with any problems you might have (although his plans might not exactly work, at least he tries! ), and would defend you from anyone who would say anything bad about you. Also, he has gorgeous eyes, so that's an added bonus. ^_^ I don't ...more

Aw, my hero! America is so adorkably lovable and endearing! He is the perfect combination of funny, confident, sweet, handsome and adorable all rolled into one man/nation! Hehehe, and his laugh is marvelous! Watch out England because I might just steal him from you... Just kidding, hahaha... (runs and hides, dodging England's Britannia beam) please don't curse or kill me!

He is a fun lovable character is so energetic it brings a smile to my face
He tries to get people to laugh
People say he is dumb, but think about it how did he get to power. Sure strength, but then others could outsmart and would have token power. Also think of wars that he has been in, he would learn about it.
He faced a lot more tragedies in shorter time and is still strong and steady.
He loves to help even if he accidentally messes stuff worse.
He is also a forgiving person.

4 Canada

I love Canada to pieces! I mean come on, he needs some love, he's forgotten even by his own pet polar bear! And it's sad he's always mistaken for his brother america

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.

He's such a sweetie! I just love his passive aggressive remarks and his determination! Except I hate his bear. Why is it's name Japanese anyway? That makes no sense.

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 Leafs
Polar bears

5 Poland

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

I’m glad my beautiful polish boy is getting higher, he is a beautiful and fabulous creation. - Limeyy

Most of these comments simply state Poland is fabulous, but I'll explain why.
It's not that he is simply a cross-dresser with a typical "valley girl" way of speaking. It goes a bit deeper. He is shown to be shy with strangers yet loud and obnoxious around his friends. Because of this one simple aspect, his character is very relatable, and thus likable. He shows what many people are like and gives others who may not be like that an insight into how others act once you get to know them.
His friendship with Lithuania is also quite adorable. It shows that different types of people can still get along just fine if not even better. Plus, how Poland acts. Sometimes he is shy and wants to bolt away from strangers, but other times he acts outgoing, even sticking up against Russia for Lithuania at one point. No one can deny that Poland really cares for his friends and has a good, strong character.

Poland is like, so totally fabulous. Plus he's like the hottest crossdresser in the world.

6 Southern Italy

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

South Italy's interactions with the rest of the cast is just simply pure hilarity! Not to mention his personality is endearing; yes, he curses a lot, but he's just as much of a coward as his brother. Additionally, that inferiority complex added with all his other quirks make him a fairly three dimensional character.

Romano is seriously one of the best characters in the whole show, and considering the size of the cast that's saying something. Even though he has a tough exterior and calls everyone "bastard" he's still a coward and I think that gives him a lot of depth, unlike Veneziano, who (although I love him too) has an exterior that you can see right through. Along the same lines, his feelings of inferiority next to Veneziano gives him so much dimension. I've always thought it was interesting how Romano has more character depth than Veneziano, who's weak side isn't as easy to notice because that's his only side.

He has such awesome interaction with the other characters, like with Germany and his brother. I think my favourite thing about him is his relationship with Spain and how even though it started out rocky, they ended up being brothers to each other.

Plus, Romano is just such a cutie!

Well, aside from his internal motives for doing so the fact that he insults others and acts incredibly lazy, selfish, and mean all while maintaining a hilarious character is very unique. And the fact that so many fans like him despite his numerous and obvious flaws is another bonus!

7 Prussia

He said it himself, He's AWESOME! He seems like a self-centered jerk but it's just a fail safe so no one knows how lonely he actually is... He is just one of those guys that you can't NOT like... Even if he is a jerk half the time

The older brother of Germany, who will do anything to become strong. He once represented the Teutonic Knights, but eventually became Prussia after various stages in his life as a nation. In the modern day (after his home was dissolved), he lives with Germany, though it is said that he once worked under Russia for a time.

He has a fondness for picking on Austria, which causes him to get beaten up by Hungary even in the modern day.

Prussia is the most awesome and great of the characters! He's hilarious! He has friends everywhere- America, Italy, Denmark, France... He's also part of many of the "groups", such as the Bad Touch Trio or the Awesome Trio. However, he's also a sad little man whose nation status was taken away from him, and yet he is able to survive. If you ever read his diary or listen to his songs (such as Mein Gott), you'd find that he's actually really lonely. His history is full of sad things- first being the Teutonic Knights, then Prussia, he's seen some pretty bad things. his brother Holy Roman Empire was killed, the death of Old Fritz, and Soviet Rule. His relations with other countries are very interesting as well, have you seen the way he's like with Austria, Hungary, America, or most importantly, Germany? Germany and Prussia are the best brothers there are in the world, undeniably! - popsmarts

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.

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.

he’s my favourite character ever ! his character songs are beautiful, and he is way more complex than the fans portray him !

9 Germany

Germany is one of the characters where most of the fans should look twice at. Sure, he doesn't really interact with many characters beside the axis but he still has potential beeing an awesome character. The country Germany has a lot of good relations with other nations, which isn't really shown in the series. Many fans often use Prussia for those interactions. Even if Prussia is a great character, some of us should always keep in mind that we don't always need to replace Germany with Prussia since there IS already a Germany. The second thing is Prussia is often considered for beeing East-Germany, which is kind of correct, but even if many of you probably haven't noticed, there is a great character/ex-country/state called Saxony. And yes, he is a Hetalia character. But of course, I'm not blaming anyone for not knowing Saxony, since I know that some of the Hetalia didn't even know Prussia before Hetalia. I'm not saying you should focus more on the German states, that are given in ...more

Germany is definitely my favorite character, no doubt about it and this is talking about him both as a character and country. Let me explain.

Germany is very old, dating back to as old as the Roman Empire and possibly long before that and it has connections to lot of of European countries and Languages including England and English. Of course we know that Germany itself, as in the Republic of Germany is quite new and the Germany that we know in the series probably isn't even as old as America.

And then of course we have the culture and beautiful sceneries of Germany. Most people would instantly think of Berlin or beer when it comes to Germany, but there are places that are natural and quite beautiful. Take for example the Rhine River which has amazing castles and huge vineyards stretching down its banks for miles.

Anyway onto the character APH Germany. At first people don't tend to like him, thinking that he's loud, strict and cruel to the fan-favourite Italy. ...more

I've always liked Germany, from the first episode (not lying, it was love at first sight... ) to the latest episode I've seen. He's helpful and he really does care about his friends and tries hard to make sure they're okay. People tend overlook what a great character he is. They forget what Hetalia would be like without him. Sure, he's a little to serious and a total tsundere (But that is what makes him endearing in a way. ) but he is really awesome. (Like his bro, Prussia) He's kind and just trying to make sure things go the way they should. People tend to dislike him for being so pissed all the time or for being so humorless, but think about it. Wouldn't you get pissed if your trying to get some work done, yet everyone around you seems to be doing the exact opposite? Everyone gets pissed. And being humorless? Well sometimes, the little things he says or does can be quite amusing. People like to say, "He's okay...". And I totally respect their opinions. Germany isn't as hyper and ...more

He's my favorite character I guess. He has a lot of funny moments when he's on screen and is really easy for me to relate to. I don't care what anyone else says, he has the best dub in the show, in my opinion (German accents for the win! ). Plus, he's kind of handsome- laugh out loud

10 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.

I love him. He is so cute and funny. I really like how he looks so carefree and happy all the time. And who doesn't like his cheer-up charm? It really works for me

Spain is always happy, and he tries to make everyone else happy. He is always very polite. He gets pushed around but he doesn't let that kill his kind personality. He is always so happy with a contagious happiness that even Romano can't resist, he is mainly optimistic and chatty although he does have an emo mood but that never lasts very long. When he finds something cute he is going to say it is cute and not care if people judge him for that. He also fanboyed over an old sword. If nothing else he is part of the BTT that alone makes him amazing. You have got to love the former sexy pirate Spain.

The perfect combination of sexy and cute. He represents very well the spanish behavior: unworried in the beginning but he fights hard for all he protects

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.

Japan is one of the cutest characters, from his appearance to his reaction to physical contact. One thing that's amazing is that he's not very overpowered, even though the anime comes from his country. Plus... WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO BREAK HIS PERSONAL SPACE AND CUDDLE WITH HIM!?

I love all of how he answers everything in ambiguous and vague responses in the stereotypical Japanese fashion... It's hilarious. AND he's so cute, physically and in attitude. I love that episode where France went over to his house to introduce him to Western culture and Japan wouldn't come out of his room, and then when bribed by France's kitty, Japan asked that Just send in the cat

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.

How come he's not on a higher place on this list? He's adorable, kind and has a great singing voice. Also he's been through so much and is still smiling despite all the hard-ships throughout his history. What a great character! Totally one of my faves

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 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.

He is very cute and I thing he is the most look like girl in hetalia (but he will be cuter when he... with Japan, laugh out loud) And I KNOW PAN WIN GUN BECAUSE China but any way I know the word YAOI because him too that why I like China but anyway just like him!

China is an amazing character, 4000 years of wisdom, love, war, sorrow, and regret. He is most commonly known for being a very submissive character, but when you look at him outside of Hetalia he's an economic and military super power to rival America and Russia, and can be an apathetic businessman or caring parent/friend. China dominates Asian history, he invented dozens of martial arts(including kung fu), and he's an prodigious cook. Though his feminine appearance, soft spot for cuteness, and the fact he is voice acted by women may lead some to believe he is girly. You don't have to be a girl to appreciate cuteness. And for those who think he is weak, remember, he single-handedly beat Germany and Japan at the same time.But you must also remember all that he's been through, 4000 years is along time. He been through as much as France, England, and Russia combined, and then some. He even has a time period in his history call the 'Warring States' period. Even with all the going on ...more

China is a great character who needs to be at the top of the list. Not only is he wise, but he's truly... Beautiful. He needs to be seen as who he actually is. Something that gets on my nerves is when people make him happy 24/7 and chasing pandas everywhere. Sigh. Anyway, he's a great character who deserves more fans.

14 Finland

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?

He has a great relationship with people, he's cute, he's strong when it really counts, he has a AWESOME personality! In fact he's actually a lot like me!

Personally, I find Finland as a pretty relatable character, so that is why I like him so much.

15 Northern Italy

Italy is the cutest character! Who wouldn't love his cute personality? I mean, think of that sweet, innocent, pasta-loving face! Out of every anime, he is my most favorite character that I absolutely adore! Let's also not forget that he can make you smile on a rainy day. Think of what Hetalia would be without him!

Everyone believes that Northern Italy is stupid... Instead is a character (like his brother) who has suffered and is still suffering, but managed to be a good country for art, literature and science (study the history! )... And is very sweet and smart!

Do I even need to explain, who wouldn't love this adorable (slightly annoying) cinnamon roll. He's so happy all the time and he acts so childish despite his age. His country may not be powerful in arms but god damn that's not stopping him! He lost his first love and grandpa to war for all we know he may not want to fight, Especially after that he may be stronger than he seems. And this baby has been around for centuries, those dumbass country's can suck it if they think he didn't learn a thing or two, he's not stupid. He's optimistic.

The fact that he can be this happy go lucky character even with this extremely brutal history (more than his brother, he actually fought for his independence) is amazing.

16 Seychelles

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

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.

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

17 Norway

Intelligent, cute and really gorgeous. I really like how he is pictured in the series, very relatable character. I'm surprised he's that low on the 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.

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.

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.

A powerful Nordic nation calling himself the "King of Scandinavia", he once had control over Sweden and Finland. Denmark also considers himself to be very close to Norway, though the other feels differently.

His general attitude is that of a loud, somewhat oblivious and arrogant young man that drinks heavily.

Denmark is amazing! He really cares about his family, and they care about him too (even if they don't always show it, like Norway and Sweden). I really love the Nordic 5, but Denmark will always have a special place in my heart. - AwesomePasta

19 Hungary

You can't be hating on Hungary, I mean, she hit France with a frying pan! (She also hit everyone else with a frying pan, but hey, GIRL POWER! ) Also, she totally saved Austria's but during the Austrian succession. Plus she hits France with her frying pan. (Oh, I already said that? Well, I suppose it's awesome enough to be said again. )

A former nomad and tomboyish type of woman who was once married to Austria. Although their union ended, she still feels strongly towards him (though she had conflicted feelings under his rule).

As a child, she believed herself to be a boy until she hit puberty. She is fond of riding horses, and carries a cast-iron frying pan with her as a weapon (which she has used against both France and Prussia).

She's my first favorite girl in hetalia, Seychelles being the second and Taiwan being the third. I so love her tomboyish and feminine personality when she's with Prussia and Austria, and I ship her with both of them(since I can't decide which pairing are cuter). I don't understand why many people hate Hungary though, just like how they hate Seychelles, I mean guys she's BADASS and just like the author of the hetalia said that she's the most manliest character in hetalia which makes me love her even more! So GIRL POWER!

Hungary is the best. She is the most independent female in the series plus she hit that good for nothing France with her frying pan. She seems like Prussia's only friend (if he even has a friend 0.0...)

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! - Sintram

South Korea's the best enough said

Korea: ANIKI!

Need I say more?

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! Pastaa!

Italy FOR the WIN!


23 Greece

I love Greece, who could not love cats, who could not want to be a cat!

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 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.

24 Belgium

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

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

She is so sweet and adorable!

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!

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.

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

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.

I love her personality and appearance. She's really cute in my opinion :3

26 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.

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?

He's horribly socially awkward, but means well and is kindhearted.

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

27 Austria

Austria is BOSS. He plays the piano in the middle of the ocean, has been married like ten times, created furnitalia by sitting on germany, coined the term 'vital regions', can make switzerland blush, has a sassy gay voice, plays the piano to express his anger, and is damn sexy. Hetalia simply wouldn't be the same without this sassy austrian pianist.

Seriously, this man is truly the coolest character in this show. I mean, who will play a piano in a deserted island or speak in a sassy manners? Obviously, this man wrap all of them. GO AUSTRIA-SAN!

I just lost it in that one episode, when he was just sitting IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN and playing the piano music that was in the background.

I will express my anger on the piano

28 Estonia

He's hilarious. Estonia is the self-proclaimed best member of the Choir Club at World Academy and also is a computer geek which is awesome. He's pretty nonchalant and kind of oblivious (STRECH! Wow, would you look at the time! ). He seems a lot more confident than the other Baltics.
And he sparkles.

Estonia is adorable, frankly. He can put up with Russia and doesn't seem to be quite as afraid of him as the other Baltics. He's a genius with technology, and someone from his country invented Skype for goodness sake! He doesn't get close to the attention that he deserves. He's always really fun to watch and he always seems to have the strangest experiences. (Seriously, what drug was he on in the nyo episode for him to have that weird of a dream? )

This babe honestly needs more love, he's such a cutie

He's a nerd like me. He's very confident.

29 Turkey

In all honesty, Turkey, especially in "beautiful world" is the sexiest, most manly, hottest guy I have ever seen. (Even though he's animated.)
How the holy hell is greece above this masterpiece of hetalia!?!?! I honestly just don't understand people...

To me, Turkey's always been kind of like an annoying sibling. Deep down, he can be kind and sweet, but is he going to show it in public? Probably not.

I honestly thought Turkey would have more. But I'm not surprised United Kingdom's first, either.

Turkey deserves to be higher. He's very underrated... - MontyPython

30 Chibitalia

Little Chibi Italy is so cute! And his relationship with Holy Rome is adorable too! (Still a better love story than Twilight)

I LOVE chibi Italy


31 Switzerland

Switzerland is in my top three! I love his relationship with Liechtenstein, and his voice, and his guns, and his hair, and his quotes, and GUNS. I loved him from the moment I saw him look out of his window with his gun and start shooting Italy. I felt bad for Italy, a lot, but... GUNS! My favorite quote he's ever said is:

"I think... It tastes like sandwich" LIKE TOTAL GENIUS LOL. I love him so much

He's a cool guy. He takes care of his sister and he's got guns. Lots and lots of GUNS. Did I mention he makes really good chocolate? And GUNS. An all-around badass with a soft side.

He is a tough hard-worker who is frugal and doesn't really show many emotions other than irritation but how much he cares for Lichtenstein is adorable and you can really tell he has a soft side for those in need. It's also hysterical when he's scaring off trespassers. All in all he's my favorite!

Switzerland is one of my favourite characters of all time! Sure, he doesn't actually show up a lot inside the anime, but he's still a great character, caring so much for Liechtenstein as and even if not exactly, a tsundere. Not to mention his epic badass gun skills and trigger-happiness. Super epic!

32 Iceland

Iceland is awesome, both the character and the actual country. He is cold and tough in the outside but warm and passionate in the inside. And he is adorable,and he can see magical creatures like his brother but hides it, and he has one of the best pets in Hetalia, ever!

He and his brother are my most favorite characters. While Iceland doesn't get as much attention internationally as do his brothers, he's charming, sweet, and the most adorable island nation. Ice is the awkward teenager who is just learning what the world has to offer him, which is why, unlike his brother, he can be sentimental once his outer personality cracks open.

Iceland's really unusual. He seems to be stoic on the outside but is actually, in my opinion, sentimental and insecure. He's also kind of a hipster and his puffin is a boss.

He appears distant and stoic like Norway, but the way he flusters and gets all awkward is really adorable. He's not really emotionally that detached, he just is a bit... tsundere? Anyway, he's such a cutie and the nordic five wouldn't be as entertaining without him.

33 Romania

Romania! Even though he's just a side-kick both in the comic and anime, he's still an awesome character!

Magic is fun! *pokes Romania with yoghurt*

Its just something about him

Cause we all love vampires

34 Vietnam

She seems a little tough on the outside, but she also has a soft side. I can understand why Taiwan complemented her in the manga. Sure, not many Hetalia fans know of her, or nations for that matter, but she really is an amazing character and needs more love. And by the way, she does work well with her climate -- the nation she represents reaches deathly hot temperatures, so you've got to give it to her for making it pass with that. She also is a great character because, even if the manga and anime doesn't really show her much (in the anime's case, at all), but you can see that she could have hidden character depth. She is tough and semi-stoic, but really sweet and amazing once you see her in the right life. She makes me proud of her, and my heritage.

A beautiful girl who has gone through more historical hardships than all of her international female counterparts. Vietnam is someone who is understandably quiet and stoic, but tough and adventurous! Exposed to multiple cultures, she is able to adapt to whatever tourists may come to visit, or herself to other nations. She also has a sweet side to her which she shows to those who are and were dear to her, like her family or some of her foreign acquaintances.

APH Vietnam is an amazing character. If you look into it, you can see her character depth. Sure, she's not shown much in the manga, and not even noticed in the anime (given that she had a non-speaking camo), but for the time she is shown, I can safely state that she is more awesome than APH Prussia. She's been through a lot, not to mention how accurate she is. As a pure Vietnamese person, I know how the Vietnamese tend to act. The only thing off (her insecurity on her appearance) is based off on tourism. Her country isn't the best tourist nation, and while she may be communist, you can see the beauty in her land. Really, this makes her 100% accurate. All hail APH Vietnam.

I cannot believe why she is so low on this list -- is it because she is unpopular? Vietnam is an amazing character, beautiful in personality and appearance. She has lots of character depth if you look deeper into it; and not to mention, she is probably the most accurate character ever created. The only thing off (insecurity about her appearance) has a reason to it (she's not that big of a tourist country). You may say she is boring, but she really isn't. Did you know that this young lady has about a 33% chance of playing video games (at this very moment! )? I didn't think so. She goes through so many [historical] hardships, but still remains tough and adventurous. She can also be very kind and generous, but she only shows that lovely side of her to those who are close to her, and those who deserve it. She is very relatable and just...beautiful. The only real reason she gets hate is because the fans don't look deeper into her, and because of the ships (namely AmeViet, which as an ...more

35 Portugal

Why does APH Portugal get no love? Like? Have you not seen his beauty? He's perfect. Laid-back and everything. This dork needs more love, seriously. As a guy, I definitely am homo for this hunk of a man. All the homo. He's my favorite. I love him.

Let me just say I love this man because I relate to him a lot. Like... a lot ok. He needs LOTS OF LOVE!

36 New Zealand

Eek I love him so much! He's just so firkin cute! Him and he's little curls and cute smile! I love him so much! I wish he'd get more screen time he so needs it!


He's sooo cute! Daww just look at his face

37 Netherlands

He is one of the only serious characters, yet he still manages to be funny. He is great at soccer and has a soft side. Not to mention smoking hot.

He's handsome and belgium even thinks so, though shes his sis

Netherlands might be ruff around the eages but I can see him as sweet somewhat just don't let him around wy or the other one I don't know how to spell oh my god

He's a soft badass, with the most fancy hair. Spicy. :3

38 Scotland

How is he not canon? How is he not #1? If it's not Scottish, it's crrrap!

He neddds to be canon

So true I totaly <3 him!

Scotland ^^ just his name makes me happy ^^ - kumaginsky

39 Mr. Puffin

The best character of them all

His voice is a awesome!

Mr Puffin!

40 Taiwan

People need to give Taiwan more love! Taiwan has such an interesting and awesome character and personality that just makes me want to know more about her. She is also the one that gives Vietnam a personality and not a character in the dust!

Taiwan needs more love, and less hate. Yes, she is kinda of a brat, it's a flaw. It doesn't make her a Mary-Sue! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TAIWAN!

She has an adorable personality!

I love Taiwan with all my heart!

41 India

Why so low? india is great

42 Ancient Rome

Rome is adorable! And funny! He's awesome and needs more love!

43 England

Uh, he's at the top of the list as "United Kingdom." Did you just not notice that?

"Dumbledora, the explorer. " seriously, who does not laugh at that!? And how badly he wanted America as a little brother, it's adorable!

They are sexy, who could not like them!

44 Holy Roman Empire

Holy Rome! HRE's not far up on the list. But he's a very important character. As another comment states, "His love story with Italy makes him unforgettable." Most Hetalia fans are aware of this story, and some even consider it to be a "banned" subject in the fandom because of how tragic it is. If a story that isn't all that long about a character creates that much attention, that character must be important. And HRE is! He's kind, patient, shy, but also socially awkward. Combined with curiosity, this leads to some very embarrassing situations for him.
Let's not forget what happened to him, either. The most important part of him that makes him so unforgettable is that he died. He had a very romantic love story with Italy before going to fight, but then... he dies. That doesn't happen every day, but it does create a really amazing effect for Hetalia.

Have all of you forgotten the cute chibi love story between him and Italy? His shyness makes him quite a cute character. His love story with Italy makes him unforgettable.

45 Ladonia

Ladonia is the cutest!

46 Bulgaria

I like Bulgaria he's really nice and he puts up with Romania I mean come on he's awesome Prussia awesome if you ask me

"yeah but take a look at his face and tell me you haven't wanted to do the same thing"

He's so cute and nice like people think he's a jerk for htting Italy with a stick but hetaween 2011 he's dressed as an angel and he goes around and greets everyone because he's just that sweet but he's so dang misunderstood
And when he works for Russia with Romania and he makes up that song and they sing it and he's just so cute
So yeah basically Bulgaria wins you can go home now

Oh where do I begin?
First, he hits Italy on the head with a stick. He is the king of sticks.
He is stupidly optimistic, 'oh Romania got rejected by his brother? Oh well, we're still the two biggest disappointments in the EU! '
Need I go on?

47 Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a very minor character, but well thought out. He has worth too, after all, he's had a war between two powerful nations for him. I can't say much, but look into his character profile and you'll see his personality is just a lovable tsundere dorko that's afraid of the dark and loves Jackie Chan.

Who doesn't love this sweetie pie! He even shares the same birthday as Canada's! COME ONE PEOPLE HE NEEDS MORE LOVE!

Playing Persona Powers Hetalia instantly made me a Hong Kong fangirl and made me shipping him with Philippines~! WATCH MY WHOLE PPH PLAYLIST AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT I MEAN!

48 Thailand

I always thought he was so sweet! And he's little pet! He just seems like a cool guy

49 Ukraine

She beautiful, have a wonderful language, writers, singers. Interesting history, why she low in ranking?

She is a very kind sweetheart. I mean, why not like her?

She is so king, caring and beautiful! How can anyone not love her?

She's really pretty and kind hearted

50 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

It's interesting to see how Australia is personified, even if it was a short while, mainly because the country has a history of a changing stereotype. This (in my opinion) makes Australia more unique as the Aussie stereotype as a whole is still changing even now! While other characters have very obvious physical and mental/ emotional qualities that are usually exact representations (albeit exaggerated for the purpose of entertainment) stereotypes of their individual country, those aren't likely to change much, but Australia has many different factors or stereotypes that contribute to the Aussie image. Especially when you think about how multicultural the country is! There are obviously negatives to Australia, as there are negatives to every country in the world of hetalia, but we haven't seen them as often as the main character countries, obviously because Australia isn't a main character. Side character or not, Australia is a very interesting character and would make for a great ...more

Australia is the best ever! He is very courageous and super friendly and doesn't mind fighting alongside his friends
Australia and New Zealand both need more screen time because they are both cute.

He's my country so he's amazing

The most wild Hetalia ever~! My fave!
