Why do fangirls ship incest? Its sickening! Its like thinking about your own sibling!

Really? There are better ships than this. - Kikira


It’s INCEST people, jeez... - MarByz

Why didn't I know about this earlier? Yes, I totally agree. You can make as many excuses as you want but England raised America and still sees him as a little brother. I wish people could appriciate their PLATONIC relationship without trying to force some awkward, unhealthy romance aspect into it. I can't escape from this ship either, it's just everywhere. I honestly feel like this ships being shoved down my throat when I don't ship it and I never will. I much prefer England with France, who he has passionate and mature relationship with so many layers and so much love. Or America with Japan, who he has a really cute, fun friendship with.

I know sometimes the hetalia fandom was full biased on usuk. Yes, the shipping wars are just really irritating. Although I'm a big fan of Fruk, it was just not working.

I just don't like how usuk shippers assume the whole fandom likes usuk. I never liked it. It's not the message we are trying to pass here.

This can't be physically incest since they are not proven to be related directly like the Italy brothers. It's most likely emotionally incest. They swore to one another to be brothers who would support one another

Also, attention to the last " usuk" episode where England has a dream of America in Africa. It was most likely a nightmare. He didn't want to deal with America again and do something out of their awkward relationship since 1776. He didn't want to "babysit" him.

And this argument about how Hima confirmed that England had a crush on America is fake. The post has been removed long ago and I don't see further proof of it.

I think that when people ship UsUk, they forget America and England are brothers - in England's point of view. England collapses on Fourth of July because America was the first colony he ever lost, not because he was mourning the loss of his lover. The Revolutionary War was very sad, but I didn't see any romantic indications at all. England mourns for America's childhood, of how the sweet little boy used to look up to him and not laugh at him. America has no feelings for England, nor did he revolt because he wanted England to see him as a lover. England raised him! Although centuries have passed, England still sees America as the younger brother he lost. There relationship is a complex one, not based on romance.

I hate this ship to be honest. Along with FRUK.

Actually, as a shipper, we have our rights to ship whatever we want so stop bickering about "You shouldn't ship this, it's incest! " and let me get this straight. Most of the ships in Hetalia seems to contain some family ties so shut up your mouths and let the fandom ships whatever it wants. It's not like you own Hetalia, so stop trying to convince people to hate their OTPs.
(actually I don't ship Germancest but who cares? )

It look terrible, Prussia is bottoming- no.

That's just disgusting...

4 England x Sealand

This ship sounds so gross. Sealand is 12 and England is 23. That's an 11 year age difference! Usually, I don't care to much about age, but this is where I draw the line, for sure. Not only that, but they don't even get along with each other. Not only is it revolting, but it wouldn't make any sense. I'm glad I've never come across this ship before.

I honestly don't know what people see in this pairing, nor do I know anyone who ships this, or how this pairing came to be. HONESTLY.

This should be in the top spot!

A reason why I don't ship this? They're brothers, and everyone knows that. Yes, incest could be fun to write. But still, I don't think England and France would enjoy their children get together.

They're BROTHERS, for Pete's sake! Why must people ruin family relationships? - MarByz

They are biological brothers. Seriously!

It makes no sense There brothers for crying out loud

6 Russia x Ukraine

I'm not sure what the other person was taking about Russia and Ukraine being enemies. Well, I haven't been into the story for a while so maybe I missed something (or they were talking about real life? ) but yeah I don't get this one.

Russia (or rather Moscowia) is Ukraine's mortal enemy. Plus they're not even related to each other (seriously, they are not biological siblings). Plus incest is gross, people. - MarByz

Ukraine is russia sister!

Ahen, "Holdomor" *cough, cough* - SolaHaze

7 Switzerland x Liechtenstein

More like brother-sister relationship for me, even though it's not stated that they are blood related. - MarByz

A bit pedophlic, in my opinion.

One word: Incest!

Why even ship dis

8 NorIce

Why? Why must people ship this? They have such a good sibling relationship. Why do people have to ruin it and turn it into incest? Why?

If you ship this, you need to reevaluate your life choices

They're brothers? Literally? What is wrong with you people.

There's literally nothing romantic about incest, please stop

9 Japan x Denmark

Actually the netherlands warned him

How in the heck does this ship make any sense whatsoever!?

Actually, it was the Netherlands who warned him. - MarByz

, that’s for real? I mean I can’t really think on it as a possibility but well now I do, never heard of this ship - Kikira

10 England x Seychelles

The fangirls just make all of this uncomfortable. Why does every character need so many ships? Like most of these don't even work! In my opinion the ones that work is him paired with America, France, China and maybe Japan? Only my opinion but just some of the ships here are horrible, most of them consisting of England.

The reason why this is a bad ship is because Seychelles HATES England with all of her guts! Sorry to those who ship it but it's not a very good ship (IN MY OPINION! )

I don't know why, but I hate them together. France x England 4 life!

No. I don’t hate anyone, but this shipping makes me want to throw up.

The Contenders

11 Sweden x Denmark

Absolutely NO! They aren't a good duo (as lovers). Sweden scape from Den's house because he couldn't bear with him any more! That isn't a pair love

Not to mention sufin is practically canon.

Agreed. - Kikira

12 Russia x Belarus

Honestly Belarus is just annoying due to the fact that because she's pretty, she can get away with anything. Because she's pretty, she can be shipped with everyone. Like why

Ha. I don't think Russia will ever grow out of his fear of Belarus. Plus, it's incest. Sure, incest doesn't matter in true love, but still!

Sorry to the fans of RussiaxBelarus. But this ship needs to burn

I honestly think Belarus needs to find someone else I mean Russia doesn't love Belarus that way and believe me I'm as big of a fan of yandere as the next anime fan but I just don't see it I wish they would fix this.

13 Prussia x Italy

Well, personally I think it is much more likely than GerIta. Since Prussia in canon has a crush on Italy, so it works from his angle. I don't dislike this ship Even though I do not think it would work from Italy's angle since he seems to not even notice.

I just cannot see it at all, plus, Italy x Germany is much much much better in so many ways so with that opinion, I think that Itapru/ Pruita is terrible okay I'll just leave it at that.

14 FrUk

I'm chill with this ship and the people who ship it but I'm just not into ships that fight 24/7. It's just not cute or interesting to me.

I don't like this ship at all

...They're mortal enemies. Plus, it fights with USUK almost all the time in the shipping wars. I would rather have a crack ship that doesn't mind if others don't ship it. I just don't see this happening, sorry.

Nooo just noo

15 Sealand x America

Seriously this ship is horrible and gross I actually searched up this ship as a joke and lemons show up

Oh Gawd, no... - MarByz

16 England X Japan

I swear I see this ship all over the anime side of Instagram. I see it whenever I go on a couple Hetalia tags. - Pegasister12

This's my Otp and I proud of it, stop saying that England belong to America or France, Japan belong to China. It's very annoying because they're not canon so when you ship anything, don't try to pull someone else to ship it like you, even the post said Hima confirmed that England has a crush on America was fake too, it has been removed for a long time ago and there's no other proofs to convince that England has a crush on America. So please ship whatever you want but don't tell someone to ship that couple just like you.

It's bloody everywhere.

No no no no! my friends ship this so whenever they talk about it I literally walk away. they ask me why I hate this ship and I say "because england is why too (how do I put this) I want to say to loud and evil for japan.

17 RusAme

They only talked twice in the whole anime, and the first time they were fighting, and the second time Russia pulled a suck burn on america. Is that enough to say that these guys have 0% chance of getting together? I can forgive most hetalia love-hate relationships, but seriously come on guys...I don't know why people ship this, its stupid. ( to be honest I never really hated rusame until I saw the fandom, the rusame fandom is crazy. If you say things like "its cute, but I don't ship it" they will threaten to kill you.

It's more than obvious that THEY. HATE. EACH. OTHER.

Why so cruel to America? ((( - MarByz

I don't even understand this ship...
I can understand most hate-love relationships but this...

18 PruCan

Just another crack pairing that a lot people ship for whatever reason. Seriously, how did this become so popular? It makes no sense.

I fact, this pairing makes sense because in "goodnight with Prussia", he talks a bit about Canada. - Meshlya

Okay! This is totally false! If you honestly LOOK at the ship it shows how both Prussia and Canada are going through the struggle of being invisible and they are helping each other out (Fanon) BUT! Prussia and Canada also share pancakes together! They commonly talk to each too! This ship makes so much sense! THIS SHIP IS BEAUTIFUL!

Don't make sense.

... The basis of this disgrace is really weird and negligible. Makes absolute 0.0 sense to me. It's as stupid as AmeBel. - MarByz

19 GerIta

I hope it burns in hell

Why can't a ship be popular without being hated? This is one of the rare near-canon ships. I think people forgot he fruking proposed? And it's a really cute and fluffy ship, not a crack or incest ship like most. - sophiacai

Never really understood the hype about it

I used to ship this, somewhat, then I got into fights since I also ship Italy with others (he's my ship whore) and whenever anyone posts a thing with the one of them dating someone else, they get back lash, because GerIta. Well at least from my experience...
Plus they're best friends, ok?!

20 Russia x Prussia

Honestly, they have NEVER spent time together and this just makes it pointless as a ship if there is no proof that Russia and Prussia have even actually MET, let alone being in a relationship.

I mean, you gotta admit their names sound cute together, but everything else is false.

I think only people who hate prussia ship this, I can't ship this because Prussia is my favorite character

To be honest I used to ship this because of a friend who gave me wrong historical information about Prussia obeying Russia or being part of the country or something like that. Also there's a bunch of yaoi doujinshis of them wich is rare

21 AmeBela

I'm not trying to offend anyone who ships AmeBel but I just can't stand this pairing! I mean their personalities clash with each others and even the countries in real life aren't in good relations, I think the only interaction they both have is when America took care of Bela and TRIED to be a brother to her, but if you read the history book America pretty much neglected Bela. And I don't think America would like anyone who supports Russia's side and I don't think Bela is gonna give up so easily on Russia either. This is just my opinion on this ship, if you respect my opinion then I respect your ships.

To be honest, I don't even now how this became a ship in the first place. Both of their personalities don't really mix well. Plus, Belarus probably won't get over her Russia obsession, and I'm pretty sure America is canon with someone else.

For the most part I respect most of the ships in Hetalia, we all have the right to our own opinion, but this one makes no sense on any level.

I hate this ship. Their personalities clash horribly and they would have no chemistry whatsoever! AmeBel is stupid since it's obvious they would never be meant for each other.

22 GerMano

There is literally NOTHING to support this ship, and I have no idea how it came to be in the first place. Romano hasen't shown even remote interest in Germany, and the only interactions they've had were Romano openly cursing out and badmouthing Germany. Even from Germany's side, there is literally NO interest! I'm usually pretty open to other people's oppinons and ships, but this is the one hetalia paring I can not stand. If you ship it, that's fine, and I'm sorry, but this ship is honestly damn disgusting to me.

ROMANO HATES GERMANY. I prefer Italy with Germany and Romano with Spain. Not saying the fanfiction is bad(it's actually pretty good) but definitely not canon. - sophiacai

23 America x Vietnam

This ship has no development. The only reason it's a ship because of the Vietnam War.

I'm not a big fan of the ship. I've seen many fanarts and fanfics about the couple, but, there is not canon interaction in the anime nor manga. The only interaction they must've been through, was probably the Vietnam war. Also, Vietnam and America were technically enemies at the time. Also Vietnam really only interacts with Taiwan and the other Asian countries.

Where's the canon evidence in this ship? Oh, that's right, there is no canonical evidence!

They don't have exactly good history together. And like it was said before, it has no development. But it's still MUCH better than AmeBel. - MarByz

24 Taiwan x Japan

Let me just say that the people of Taiwan pretty much hate the Japanese. Even now they still hate them.

I only support their relationships as siblings, not romantically. Plus, the way Taiwan treats Japan is annoying, while other people find it cute.

I'm Taiwanese, my grandmother deeply hated Japanese rule. Taiwan and China from Hetalia are a propaganda piece; Taiwan is Japan's "friend" and China is the emasculated stereotype who gets all the credit for WWII.

Yes, always. I was literally searching for Taiwan and this showed up. Even when I search for other ships involving Taiwan (like HongTai, TaiKor, TaiViet, etc.) this showed up for no reason. I used to ship this (for only a few days) and I've seen it way too much and it's REALLY getting annoying.

25 Prussia x Hungary

The fandom ruined Hungary for me. This ship is everywhere and it's so annoying. No wonder I left the fandom.

Can the cringe get any worse

AusHun is far superior

I don't hate it, but it's, like, EVERYWHERE (waaay tooo popular) and it's annoying. - MarByz

- cries because I ship this I even saw Germany x Italy -

Seriously Why Would Anyone Ship These 2 is Beyond Me In Th Anime And Manga And In Real Life China Hates Russia And Does Not Even Want Him Near,Sure There Is The Whole Thing Russia Turned China Communist But Not Because They Liked Each Other.It Has Been Known Throughout History That Countries Help Other Countries But For Their Own Personal Gain And When One Country Cannot Help The Other Country It Is Know That They Other Leave Or Betray Them,Or Something Like That.

I toats agree with the last 2 comments I hate this ship with the fiery passion of a thousand billion infinite suns and beyond comprehension!

27 Sealand x Wy

They to young to be shipped.

They're children what the hell

They just don't need to be a couple. It just makes England X Australia a more plausible ship.

I don't know whether this one is cute or weird...

Honestly, this ship is really lame. It's too basic, and not even cute. Sure, they were married, but that doesn't mean they actually loved each other.

This is like an almost canon thing

Not bad, but way too omnipresent. - MarByz

Guys...they're married.
Still, that makes it pretty austria... - sophiacai

29 HongIce

There's almost zero canon interaction (except for the Halloween episode, in which they barely spoke, and it was mostly Hong Kong). Their personalities would likely ruin the friendship, as Hong Kong is more lively, bubbly, and with the times, whereas Iceland is more secluded, relaxed, and almost traditional. They would probably be good as friends, but as a couple, they don't really mix.

Really, this ship is horrible. No need to explain more. They're both only friendly towards each other, nothing else. /Nothing/. I hate this ship more than anything else.

It's not even cute. HongIce is not nice

It would be incest too since people who went to north Europe came from Asia. But well, I don’t think on it as a real thing, only if it doesn’t work out with closer countries. Because, Damn Iceland is distant from anyone, so he
can basically be shipped with anyone who’s at a minimum not so long distance of him. And they both feel similar, so similar that I don’t think it would workout. But well it’s a possibility. - Kikira

They are like cousins and England hates Germany.

They just don't get along at all and in most doujinshis there usally forced together

32 RusLiet

Why do people have to be so cruel to Lithuania? ( - MarByz

I literally hate this ship SO much. I mean, Russia L I T E R A L L Y abused Lithuania! He made him dress up in a maid outfit and chased him around with a whip, and then there’s that one time in the comic (While You Were Gone) when Poland wanted to prank Lithuania when he was in the bath and he looked in and! Saw! SCARS! On his back! Literally, people.

33 Spamano

Romano doesn't deserve Spain he treats him too bad, I usually like tsundere characters but Romano is crossing the line. I think Spain is better with France or Belgium because they treat him better.

34 Lithuania x Belarus

Belarus is way too cruel to him, and Lithuania deserves much better. - MarByz

35 GrandpaOliver

This ship is so beautiful! The concept of Grandpa Oliver is perfect. This ship shows the difference between two polar opposite. This ship should totally be cannon.

This is a crack ship above all crack ships.

...You do realize this is a page for worst ships right?

I didn't even know this existed but... No.

36 Greece x Japan

Canon thing to go against this:
Japan and Greece have done the diddly doo with each other. So rip anyone who hates this

I only see them as close friends

Not really it was a dream during a sleepover

37 Philippines x America

I can see how people ship this. Culturally, America and the Philippines have a good relationship. But I would rather see them have a platonic relationship than a romantic one.

Since Philippines is a CANON character it can kinda make sense but I see them have a BROTHERLY relationship! Not much as lovers!

Sure, I'd love a Philippines as much as the next Filipino fan, but still. I don't see how shipping an OC with an actual character works. Even worse, people tend to forget history between them. America actually took away the Philippines' independence after it was declared!

Yes, there are some other trrible ships with the Philippines in it, but this is a notp for me.

They dislike each other, so I don’t understand why are they shipped together and I don’t agree with it. Also, the real-life countries are pretty much like cat and dog. - MarByz

44 Philippines x Japan

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Japan took over the Philippines, for heaven's sake! Would that help the Philippines' relationship towards Japan? NO! Honestly, I see them more as frenemies then lovers.

Isn't the Philippines an OC? So technically, this isn't even a real ship.

This ship isn't my favourite. I see France and Canada as "Father and Son" relationship! I don't really agree with this ship.

Just kidding, not really a bad couple. It's the best.

47 America x Seychelles
48 DenNor

Yes they did have a union but looking at it in the present I think they just have FRIENDLY feelings for each other. Denmark in his own words refers to Norway as a "best friend" and I don't think he sees him as anything else beyond that. Norway refers to him as "anko" because Denmark is older and as Himaruya says it holds a "classmate like feeling" meaning these 2 aren't really meant to be assumed as gay for each other. They have a history but all the Nordics have strong ties with each other in their histories. Who's to say that Denmark and Norway don't have any strong ties with the other Nordics when they did? The chemistry might be seen by the fans but I can't see them being together.

Norway keeps blatantly insulting Denmark and he just ignores it and you never know if it hurts Denmark's feelings. Opposites may attract but in this case I think not because Norway can't stand Denmark's hyperactive persona and he strangles him! Their relationship ...more

Seriously people! Denmark refers to him as a friend and Norway can't stand how hyper he is. Their too different from each other and their bickering is not justified as romance because they you can see that they don't treat each other as anything but friends. They just seem to have a friendly rivalry and the way Norway treats him is no romantic implication! You can see friends hitting each other sometimes and it's normal for them. I also think Denmark has no other feelings for him other than brotherly tendencies and the vibe they give off is just friendship to me. I can't see them as a couple.

What? They? Don't hate each other? Best friends can be in love? Hasn't anyone ever told you to marry your best friend? Literally Nor bakes him cakes and holds his hand and "wants his flank," in canon? You people... Nor shows his affection through teasing people. He's literally so uncomfortable with people that he will "leave on sight," but he's comfortable enough to tease Den. Not to mention they were married? Happily? And we're forcibly ripped apart as PUNISHMENT? Jeez people.

Hey, well I do believe this ship can workout. It did workout and didn’t worked because Denmark was a bastard. But now if they’ve learnt their lesson, isn’t the same as what happened in history. But people need to realize. People from north Europe all came basically from Asia, right before the Vikings. Then they separated and stayed where they wanted to (and fought if there was someone in the place they wanted to). In the past it was actually a pretty much dangerous situation. Do you guys know it?
About Iceland, I think it was basically the same, though it’s so far away that they developed on their own and have a totally different culture. Finland also have a totally different culture though it’s really close to Sweden on some parts, so it can and can’t be considered an “brother” to Sweden.
At the end, they are all family because the countries love each other. Yes there’s possibility of a new marriage between them and all them were married once (before Denmark ...more - Kikira

Guys, I know that its super cute that they love technologic and many other things but when I look at them I simply cannot see how Japan would still like America, HE DROPPED AN ATOMIC BOMB ON TWO OF JapanS CITIES. I know that if we weren't supposed to ship hetalia couples because of historical facts, we wouldn't ship nothing at all, but still... Sorry

This doesn't really need an explanation. Just remember Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima. You're welcome.

Well I ship this everyone else that's here and that ships this please say Hello I'm not mad but sup
