* BaseBreaker: ALL countries when it boils down to it, and certainly those whoever had an Empire, will have a morally questionable history in somebody's mind.

** Russia is a...unique character, to say the least. He is portrayed as much more flawed than the other characters, especially in earlier strips. Therefore, fans' viewpoints on him tend to be polarizing. And let's not get started on his many fanon portrayals...

* ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs: Take a world history or poli-sci class. Now, replace the teacher with a rabid YaoiFangirl who also happens to be TheAlcoholic. That pretty much sums up the series.

*** Either that, or he's shown as TheDitz and {{Jerkass}} whom everyone hates and/or abuses.

** Russia himself also gets this treatment in several fanfics where he' given the role of the story's antagonist. It's mainly due to the fact that fanwriters, regardless of their own opinions on his character, just find it a little ''too'' easy to crank up certain characteristics of his personality (namely that he ''is'' a PsychopathicManchild, a StepfordSmiler, and TheFakeCutie, plus RealLife Soviet Russia's own atrocities such as TheGulag were no laughing matter).



** Scotland hasn't even been in the anime yet, but it doesn't stop some fans from making him a BigBrotherBully or downright abusive (usually to England, but Wales, Ireland and other countries get their share of it, too.)
* TheScrappy: While not as open as in Korea's case, you can bet that in a poll about disliked characters Sealand will have a "top" spot.

** Or Japan, who was ''hated'' by people who called him a MisplacedNationalism-fueled Canon Sue that was ruining the anime after every episode he appeared in. Or took personal offense about him being as beloved in Japanese fandom [[HypocriticalFandom as Canada was in Western fandom]]. Or claimed that him not being depicted as a monster or his ImperialJapan atrocities not being portrayed in graphic detail in a series focused on the light-hearted side of history meant that Himaruya was "trivializing" history. It was mainly limited to a VocalMinority, but they kept on finding the stupidest reasons to bash him; there was even a post on the Hetalia comm that bashed Japan as a "shojo harem manga heroine" to promote ''Turkey/Poland''. Fortunately, like with Korea, the hate has [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap quieted down over time]], probably because Japan having a minor or supporting role at best in the comics means that the VocalMinority can't call him a SpotlightStealingSquad by any stretch of the imagination.

* CrazyAwesome: Prussia. His ego could choke a horse, he's a boundlessly ambitious psychotic punk who delights in mischief, and yet caves at the sight of cute things... a freak among freaks, and a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorite]]. Plus, he, Spain and France together form a posse often dubbed the 'Bad Touch Trio', 'The {{Badass}} Trio', or 'The Bad Friends Trio.' [[BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad They're just a trio of Badness]].

* MemeticBadass / MemeticMolester Although it's his unrepentant badassness that makes him so popular, his fandom's {{meme|ticMutation}}s are even scarier: 'Prussia will occupy/seize your vital regions' and 'Prussia is [[GagPenis 5 METERS LONG]]!'. In fact, Prussia is said to run around [[ImageBoard 4chan]] trying to seize the vital regions of the various boards. He even took over the main site for an April Fool's event. It may be rubbing off onto the actual anime, he acts very scarily in the below strip in the anime.

** America is Number 2 favorite character in a poll on the American side, whereas in the Japanese poll he's like the 15th. Americans like [[SelfDeprecation making fun of themselves?]]

* TheyJustDidntCare: The only explanation for some of the human names. Which makes sense, as Himaruya never intended for them to exist, but the fans insisted. Applies to both Himaruya's name choices and the english-speaking fanbase's romanizations thereof. Vargas is a Spanish name not Italian, Tino is uncommon in Finland but Timo is very common, Weillschmidt is not a name but Beilschmidt is, it's Eliza''b''eta and not Elizaveta, and Toris is a very popular name in Lithuania... for dogs.
** That being said, the last one [[FridgeBrilliance might make more]] [[ButtMonkey sense than you think]]...
*** During the bunny updates of the 2013 Halloween Event, Lithuania wears dog ears.
** A few of the human names have actually shown up in at least two strips, one being Spain's April Fools' news show. Another strip has America referred to as "Alfred", but as he was acting in a commercial, it's probable that it was only his character's name.
** Granted, the human names are technically WordOfGod and that Himaruya still offers suggestions for them. Such as with Liechtenstein.

** The premise of the show isn't the first time someone did a cartoon [[TimeSquad that mixed a warped view on history with rampant male homosexual undertones]] ([[spoiler:though ''Time Squad'' was not as popular as ''Axis Powers Hetalia'' -- at least not until after the former show got canceled]]).
