Mary Sue and it's subcategories are now Flame Bait.
* RelationshipSue: Sadly, even from before they were given character sketches, Portugal was (''and still is'') used as this by fans who flanderized the rich story behind the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Portuguese_Alliance Anglo-Portuguese Alliance]] into "marriage marriage marriage England England England yay they're married". Not all [=PortEng=] fans do this, but the basis is there and it's not helped [[ShipToShipCombat by the USUK bashing]]. Portugal's character notes about other charas refer mostly to Spain and South Italy, with England not even being mentioned. So, all speculations about the nature of his... her... er, ''their'' relationship with England are pure fanon. ** Seychelles has been falsely accused of being this ''many'' times by disgruntled fans, using her ''Gakuen Hetalia'' role as "proof". ** Lord, what some fangirls do to Taiwan in their Taiwan/any-Asian-male-but-almost-always-Japan fanwork. Japanese and Chinese/Taiwanese fen are especially to blame for this, apparently inspired on how her land was [[ImperialJapan "the Pearl of the Japanese Empire"]] from 1895 to 1945. ** Japan has been accused of this too by fans who apparently believe that "([[NotSoAboveItAll mostly]]) emotionally reserved character who gets focused on sometimes and has a LoveTriangle of sorts going on with two (relatively minor) characters" = "perfect GaryStu harem lead who has half of the cast falling all over him". Also comes mixed with DieForOurShip from rabid Turkey/Greece shippers who bash him for getting in the way of their "far hotter and more historically important" pairing.

* BrokenBase: ''Oh'' boy, where to start? Funimation's release of the English dub has taken the previously more-or-less united fanbase (outside of {{Shipping}}) and ''shattered'' it, probably beyond repair. Within hours of Funi showing some rather controversial scenes at a convention, massive {{flame war}}s erupted over the [[RatedMForMoney script changes]] and both fans and the haters of the series have gone neck to neck in attacking each other, if fans at each others' throats were not enough. Fans of the dub call it a perfectly-localized version with freshly-researched new lines, while those who hate it call it a cheap, {{bowdleri|se}}zed ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' FollowTheLeader that goes completely against Himaruya's own views and enters DudeNotFunny territory. The flames have yet to die down.

** Belarus became this when [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]] threatened to send her to Siberia because Lithuania expressed reservations about accompanying him to a meeting. Can you imagine your own brother [[TheUnfavourite caring so little about you]] that he uses sending you to the horror that was the [[TheGulag gulags]] as [[IHaveYourWife an incentive]] to make someone else do what he wants? If this happens on a regular basis, her bitterness comes as no surprise. Even if it's Belarus, that's just [[DudeNotFunny not right]].

** Lately has also become the case with ''Webcomic/{{Polandball}}'', because of similar premises, and both fandoms accuse each other of being either insensitive or historically inaccurate. Unlike =SATW=, Polandball was not created by a single author. Also unlike in the case with =SATW=, this rivalry seems to be not cooling down soon.

See discussion. It says he's popular both in fanart and fanfiction and the rest of this page talks about him like he's popular. Not a Base Breaker.
* BaseBreaker: England has more haters than you'd expect, especially given the fact that he is almost bizarrely popular in both fanfic and fanart. Some fans hate him ''because'' he is so popular, finding that his popularity leaves other countries behind. Some even find him to be the CreatorsPet. On the other hand, it almost seems logical that the fandom is so divided over him--not only is he very much {{Tsundere}} (which is often taken UpToEleven by fans), he is also a country with a very long history that seems morally questionable to many, so not many are pleased with him being portrayed as TheWoobie. ** 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 -- England just has the best known example of such an Empire. ** On top of that, there's strong division over whether England should be the {{seme}} or {{uke}}. As custom for slash fics and art, [[{{Wimpification}} many fans will exaggerate]] England's more submissive and feminine traits. But then you have fans giving him the badass seme treatment, often to RonTheDeathEater levels, because he was an empire and therefore must always top.

Added DiffLines:
*** One of Russia's other songs, [[https://youtu.be/y4PCFLt45z0 Pechka ~Light My Heart~,]] is also very catchy.

Added DiffLines:
**The Nordic Five's song, [[http://youtu.be/lWoUrDp78dk Always With You...Nordic 5!,]] has all five of the nations at once, and is incredibly awesome and catchy. **[[http://youtu.be/mridG1GB1ak United Nations Star,]] which is sung by the Allies. It's awesome, catchy, and funny.

* SecondLove: Arguably for [[{{Fanon}} some fans]], what [[{{Tsundere}} Norway]] is to [[LoveMartyr Sweden]] [[NapoleonicWars after the Napoleonic Wars,]] [[ArrangedMarriage leading up to their third personal union.]] Although the union is sometimes interpreted as either AMatchMadeInStockholm (technically Moss, Norway) or NoAccountingForTaste. However, Sweden is still consistently shown with Finland more often than anyone else in the modern day strips, making this one pure {{fanon}} speculation.
