* 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]]).

** England's secretary debuted in the HetaliaBloodbath2010, so this is a given.
** Osaka, especially after the HetaliaBloodbath2010.

* RealWomenDontWearDresses: Mostly done by the HetIsEw yaoi fangirls and the "fandom feminists" part of the fandom who seem to dislike Hungary for going from tomboy to NinjaMaid and falling for Austria, accuse Seychelles of being a Mary Sue and SatelliteLoveInterest for being the main character in Gakuen Hetalia or, in the most extreme cases, think that all women in Hetalia are weak and a misrepresentation of the gender.

** Denmark alone has lots of it. Earlier portrayals showed him as [[BlondGuysAreEvil evil]] with a BloodLust in battle, or a PsychopathicManchild who acts as a PervertDad to Norway. He was also subjected to RonTheDeathEater treatment in fanworks that take place in the time period of Sweden's rebellion. Now that more of his personality has been revealed, he's either a BumblingDad to the Nordics, or a LovableSexManiac. "Mathias" seems to be the [[FanNickname most common human name]] for him in the Western fandom.

* SelectiveSquick: There are some people who like the humor and the idea of the series, but are scared off by the HoYay.
** Meanwhile, there are others that are drawn to the HoYay but might find some of the UnfortunateImplications surrounding the show's interpretations of various historical events a little too disturbing.
** ''Meanwhile'', meanwhile, there are others who are fine with the HoYay but squicked by the [[NotBloodSiblings vaguely-incestuous]] pairings (US/UK, Switzerland/Liechtenstein, China/Japan, etc) or shota (Chibiromano/Spain, Chibiamerica/England, etc).
This list shows the last 10 events of 303. Show all.
