** America also comes off badly in some Japan/someone-other-than-him fanworks where he's depicted as being in love with Japan instead of them just being best friends, with his somewhat tactless but genuinely cheerful and friendly attitude toward Japan in canon somehow being translated into him becoming [[CrazyJealousGuy unnervingly possessive]] [[StalkerWithACrush and stalkerish]] toward, if not [[DomesticAbuser outright abusing]], Japan. About the only justification ever given for this is that America's dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan at the end of WWII ''must'' mean that he's actually a {{Yandere}} deep down, which completely ignores not only everything we've seen of them together in canon but everything ''else'' about their (currently good) real-life relations, so it can't even be passed off as "historical canon".

** Some fanworks take Denmark's canon BoisterousBruiser traits and make him an insane {{Yandere}} who drove Sweden to run away with Finland after raping and torturing him into almost insanity. Even some works that are ''ostensively'' Denmark/Sweden use this; there's a very popular doujin that represents the infamous [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_Bloodbath Stockholm Massacre]] by first making Denmark [[EyeScream severely injure Sweden's eyes]] with his axe when Sweden merely says something that ''sounds'' like he'll leave the Nordic group (which "explains" why Sweden uses glasses), and then torturing and raping him among the ruins of Stockholm right after his defeat.(Though that doujin a;so has a rather cute [[LoveRedeem reconciliation]] between the two them at the end.)

** [[{{Shorttank}} Wy]] got pegged with this shortly after her first appearance by [[ToyShip Sealand/Latvia and Sealand/Iceland]] shippers. (The fact that she already had {{Scrappy}} status from being a LittleMissSnarker certainly didn't help her case any.) Since the Sealand/others shippers [[VocalMinority are VERY far and in between]], the major part of the fandom decided to keep Wy safe via either making her think [[DoesNotLikeMen "ew boys]], [[WomenAreWiser why are you so dumb"]] or giving her a PrecociousCrush on [[ChivalrousPervert Seborga]] instead, since he promised to hit on her [[SheIsAllgrownUp when she grows up]].

** Even Liechtenstein, who's a ProperLady in canon, is once in a while treated as being an evil MarySue who stole Switzerland from Austria. (Nevermind that she and Austria are very polite and civil to each other in canon). Luckily it's not that common, but there are some UnfortunateImplications in how the hate stopped ''only'' in the {{Hetalia Bloodbath 2011}} when she seemed to [[ShipperOnDeck approve of Swiss and Austria's somewhat improved relationship.]]

** This troper once found a Belgium/Austria fic. Okay, that's good. But then she found out that it had ''heavy'' Hungary bashing. Eeeep, hitting the "back" button.

** A more subtle yet venomous and insidious way to make France look bad in USUK fics (principally {{doujinshi}}) is to take the French Crown's historical role in TheAmericanRevolution and flanderize it by characterising France as a borderline EvilMentor to America who sleeps around in the war camps and seems to have fun by pitting a young and easy to manipulate America against his eternal enemy England under the excuse of "giving America the chance to develop into his own country", but actually just wants to make England suffer and get revenge against him. Way to twist ~historical canon~ to fit your ship preferences, people. To be fair, one of the main reasons that the French Crown got involved with the American Revolution '''was''' to get revenge on England for the Seven Years War. In canon, France is pretty self-centered and likes to cash in on other people's victories, so him being a "borderline EvilMentor" isn't that out of character. But it ''can'' (and more often than not, '''is''') taken too far, with France as spiteful and pit against a {{Purity Stu}}fied England.

** Even Vietnam, who has had barely any screentime at all gets this from people who dislike how some members of the fandom pair her up with America, Russia, France, and/or China and refer to her as a RelationshipSue because of {{Fanon}} portrayals. Despite the fact that, in canon, she has not had any ShipTease with anyone other than Taiwan and Thailand so far, she has gotten some accusations of being a FlatCharacter who only exists to ruin other pairings. Thankfully, this portion of the fanbase is very small in comparison with hate that the other females have gotten, as it's very easy to ignore her character entirely.

* Lithuania tends to get accusations of being a MartyStu from fans who pair Russia or Poland (or America or Belarus...) with someone else. Not all of it is because of this; Lithuania is, after all, portrayed as a ''very'' [[TheWoobie sympathetic]] NiceGuy for a country that was once powerful, and Himaruya seemed [[CreatorsPet quite fond of him]] in 2007-2008 (though this has improved since, with him being passive-aggressive and rude towards Prussia in a recent sketch). But a few fans have admitted to disliking him just for "getting in the way" of their ship.

''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', despite being a show full of HoYay-fueled {{Moe Anthropomorphism}}s, has a fandom that's largely free of ShippingWars, probably because almost any pairing can be [[RealitySubtext justified]], and multishipping and ShipMates are very common. But even it isn't ''completely'' free from this trope (...okay, the list below ''is'' rather long, but that's mainly because of LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, and most examples are still limited to VocalMinority status). In other words, even the nicest and most civil of fanbases - Hetalia shipping being on the whole wonderfully accommodating - can't eradicate the 'fanatic' in 'fandom.'
