Best Major Hetalia Characters

wavedoe8
Just curious to see which major Hetalia character is most favored by fans. (I personally like all of them, though.)

The Top Ten

1 America

This one is kind of obvious. It's America!

Alfred personally isn't my all time favorite character, but he's close. He's the hero for crying out loud! He's very fun, energetic, funny, good-natured, hyperactive, and, well, not the sharpest knife in the drawer. But still! Many viewers of Hetalia may be American themselves and the reason Alfred is so popular could be because people can have the time to laugh at themselves. You all remember the episode where America pulled out a United States map hoping to find the route to Asia, or how 'bout the time when he ate hamburgers, slurped soda, and tried to communicate with England with the Axis's battle plans ALL AT THE SAME TIME? Yes, America is just that talented.

Also, who doesn't love a character with a sense of humor? Or one that is happy-go-cheery? Even if you try not to, it's difficult for somebody like me not to love America. He's just so adorable! For example: Alfred freaks out over a "horror" movie with no basic scary ...more - wavedoe8

Cause america is just badass!

He is like me. He is cute,lively and everything you could ask for in a boyfriend. He is really loyal too because he is the HERO. He is cute and I love him!

Ok, America isn't my favorite character overall. But I love him. Do y'all remember in Paint It, White, when there was this line:

"Well, Tony spends a lot of time on an intergalactic porn website, so he found the Pict's home page. Then he hacked it; apparently their password is just 'password'."

I love that line so much, it's like my favorite in the entire movie! Plus, Ame is hilarious and is actually pretty smart. He gets scared over ghosts, which is kinda funny, but he's a really cool character. I like his little brother (Canada~! ) a bit more, but Ame is still fantastic. - SapphireMoon44

2 Russia

Russia wants to have friends and protect them from others to the point of being overly possessive and demanding but he really tries to have connections with them. If they were sick he would do something to help or at least give them a break.
Also he is so cute and does not deserve a psychotic incestual sister like Belarus giving him anxiety issues.

Russia is the prime example of yandere in anime. He is so cute with his pipe, vodka, and sunflowers, but his turbulent history made him very broken and scary. He is unaware of his doings, because everyone is scared of him. All he needs is friends. That's why you guys thumb him up. You guys are the fans and its your job to keep Russia happy. =Mr.Pipe Agrees=

It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. (W. Churchill)

Russia is so adorable!

3 England

Admit it. It's the eyebrows.

He's my favourite for his constantly changing personality and his general adorable tsundere-ness.

4 Germany

He is the hot, strong and silent type and it's adorable how shy he can be around girls and yet he is a slight closet pervert as seen by the magazines he receives from Finland. He needs to learn how to break the rules sometimes but otherwise he is everything you could ever want as he doesn't act as irresponsibly as other countries as seen in the very first episode at the meeting.

Lord Doitsu has taught me the ways of the potato and for that I am forever grateful.

5 Japan

Japan signifies a beacon of honor, quiet nature, and self-preservation. He seems to be mature and calm on the outside and very dignified, but... Psyche! The dude's pretty crazy on the inside. You can all recall the episodes where Himaruya Hidekaz goes inside Japan's head and so the viewers see what is really on Kiku's mind... That is when we learn about Japan's inner weirdness.

Hetalia does an exceptionally good job of exploiting its own stereotypes and "faults", and that's probably the main reason why many Japanese viewers rate Honda on the "Top ten Hetalia characters list". Because Hetalia doesn't depict its own country as perfect. They could have made Japan the only sane one in a group of weirdos and misfits, but what fun would that be? Instead, the anime and manga makes Kiku out for his betrayals and how he views the world by going inside of his head.

Another reason why Japan's so popular is because for the more maybe level-headed fans; Kiku is one of the only really ...more - wavedoe8

I just really like his voice...

I like Japan. His character, and voice actor are perfect!
I just really, really like him for some reason.
Even though he gets a lot of attention, and is in most of the episodes, almost every time he comes on, I go "Jappan! Japaaannn! "

I dunno...

6 China

I think he is the most handsome one. He is my husband.

Hmm... I personally don't think many people would vote for China as their all time favorite, but, whatever. You like what you like. I won't write a full-blown summary of the things that stick out in China's personality attract me, but I will still list a fair few.

-I do like his energy.
-He can be funny when he wants to be.
-I like characters with a rebellious, stubborn side, and China has it.
-He seems like the type of character to eventually forgive and let live. Eventually. - wavedoe8

7 Italy

Italy is without a doubt the kindest and sweetest character throughout the series; he's just so adorable! He would prefer to make "pasta not war" and is childishly ignorant and distant. Not really in a bad sense, though. More just... Distant.

He always has something good to say about those around him, he can make anybody feel better just by smiling at them, and many of the other countries find it extremely hard to remain angry at Italy for extended periods of time. Really, all Feleciano wants to do is eat, sleep, and enjoy life. He's just very easy-going and easy to get along with. (Though he can be annoying at times. )

Think about it; you're at war with practically the rest of the world and you have only a few comrades to get along with. Typically, you're mood would probably be much colder and harsh. Would it not? But no, Italy can still find a reason to smile and be on decent conditions with even his enemies. He can still find a way to see the good in everything around ...more - wavedoe8

8 France

Okay, France. France...

HE IS A PERVERT AND THAT IS WHY HE'S SO AWESOME.

Like I said before, France is a man who can't seem to go down a few notches on the pole. He's very... He's very romantic. And super pervy. And because of that, it gives all us fans a person to giggle at and grow fond of.

It's true that the dominant side of Francis is mostly about sex, I won't try to deny that, but we also do catch a few rare glimpses of his big brotherly self as well. Most of the characters in Hetalia view France as just what he is, but the ones who haven't really seen France's more sentual part would describe him as caring and patient. We as the viewers don't see a lot of that, but it has been shown that France can be loving and protective when he wants to be.

Le roman me tue! - wavedoe8

France is amazing no doubt about it. Haters can go eat England's scones... Jk but, still France isn't just a perv he can be really loving when he wants to.

9 Prussia

IT'S THE AWESOME PRUSSIA FOR GOD'S SAKE! WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO KNOW?

Seriously though, it's Gilbert. He carries the comforting fantasy that he is the world's strongest and best fighter and the most awesome of all countries out there. His delusion and need to mess with Austria's social life makes him hilarious! There is nothing else you must know... (Well, there is, but I'm to lazy to write it all down. ) - wavedoe8

He is definitely hot and his confidence is certainly there which is always good. If only he didn't have that much of an ego he could really be perfect. I mean who would want to have to listen to how awesome someone is constantly? But he is a good brother to Germany.

He acts loud and obnoxious and egotistical all the time, but that's just because he doesn't want to be forgotten about.

He's just awesome! Need I say more?

10 Canada

Canada is SO, SO adorable! He can deal with the other countries forgetting all about his very existence (he doesn't like it though) and then he STILL doesn't get mad! He's just the type of person with something good to say about everyone around him, and is always willing and happy to help out.

Even though Matthew is very shy and sweet, a pacifist really, he does still have a fierce side to his personality. He can be very tough and ruthless when need be. But the only time that's ever happened was when America finally crossed the line and Canada got so angry with him that he yelled in his face and reduced his older brother to tears.

There aren't very many characters in the series like Canada. He's one of a kind in Hetalia. Matthew is just one of those characters you fall in love with because in reality, people like that don't show up in the real world. - wavedoe8

11 South Italy (Romano)

Romano All The Way!

12 Spain

I was surprised Spain was not listed. His happy-go-lucky smile and cheerful personality made me attracted to him. He can be a caring parent too, even though Romano is kept denying it.
By the way, pirate Spain is hot.
Still, there are many great characters from hetalia (I love them all, especially the bad touch trio), but Spain is the most adorable, don't you agree?

Spain is one of my favorites. Every scene he was in I laughed. Spain the boss and chibi Romano was so cute even though I'm a SpUK shipper.

13 Austria
14 Hong Kong
15 Iceland
16 Australia

Sure, he is not one of the major characters, but he does play a major role in history. He is very courageous no matter the circumstances and he is always ready to help another fellow nation. and Australia also rules in cricket!
He has a very adventurous spirit and and he is ready to defend those he cares about if they are threatened.

17 Switzerland

He isn't exactly a major character. But you have to admit this guy has to be up here.

18 Hungary

How can you not love her!? - Romano_Vargas

20 Pakistan

Sure, he/she isn't in the Anime, but was dancing in the back in the 2011 halloween special. Is my favorite because I love my country!
