[[folder: ''Horrible'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Rome Gnaeus:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Maybe a little annoying, but certainly not villainous in the original.
* {{Affably Evil}}: So much that he went for the "fun and friendly" angle during his interviews.
* {{Alas Poor Villain}}: Even if you don't like the guy, you have to admit that [[spoiler:being betrayed by his ally/crush and croaking out her name as he lies dying is a sad way to go.]]
* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Although he's certain that Ania will fall for him, it never happens.
* AntiVillain: a dark Type IV, if you squint. He spends more of his time boasting and flirting than doing anything actively malevolent, and the only time he succeeds in killing somebody in the core storyline, it’s by indirect means. Despite this, he still definitely opposes the protagonists.
* BetaCouple: with Ania, [[spoiler: albiet unrequited.]]
* BigBad: of the Horrible career pack, [[spoiler: until [[{{DragonAscendant}} Ania]] takes over.]]
* {{Boisterous Bruiser}}: Decides he just has to take on a giant lizard mutt by himself for the fun of it.
* {{Brains and Brawn}}: The brawn to Ania's brains.
* TheCasanova: Apparently dates dozens of girls at once.
* {{Curb Stomp Battle}}: Against [[spoiler: Gries]] in the sixth What If.
* {{Dirty Business}}: How he seems to view killing females and the defenceless. He doesn't like it much, but feels he has to do it anyway.
* {{Et tu Brute}}: [[spoiler:Gets stabbed in the back by his ally, Ania.]]
* {{Evil Duo}}: With Ania; she being the Superego, he being the Id.
* {{The Fighting Narcissist}}: Definitely fighting, and his introductory chapter was so darn narcissistic the author had difficulty writing it.
* {{Killed Off for Real}}: [[spoiler:By Ania.]]
* {{Large Ham}}: "I, the great and powerful Rome!"
* {{Last Kiss}}: Kisses [[spoiler:Ania as she dies in the sixth What If. Since he dies not long afterwards, this would make it his last kiss as well. Slightly subverted in that it's more creepy and manipulative than romantic.]]
* {{Love Hurts}}: Like a sword through the back. [[spoiler:Literally.]]
* {{Love Martyr}}: Never stops hoping Ania will reciprocate his feelings, even when it's incredibly obvious she hates his guts.
* {{Laughably Evil}}: Definitely an antagonist, but his narcissism makes him humorous.
* {{Manipulative Bastard}}: [[spoiler:Surprisingly, he has a moment of this in the sixth What If when he tells Ania he'd feel a lot less guilty about killing her if she returned his affections, then exploits her desire to repay him so that she lets him kiss her.]]
* {{Mutual Kill}}: [[spoiler:With Igris in the sixth What If.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: For a career.
* {{No Kill Like Overkill}}: [[spoiler:Amer tears his neck to absolute shreds in the first What If.]]
* {{Not So Harmless Villain}}: Does absolutely nothing – until he [[spoiler: mortally wounds Fronce.]]
* {{Pet the Dog}}: Quite a few: he [[{{Taking the Bullet}} Took a Bullet]] for Ania on their first meeting, has a distaste for harming females and the defenceless (although he does it anyway) and was polite enough to [[spoiler: carry Gries' body to where the hovercraft could get it]] in the sixth What If.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to Ania.
* {{Taking the Bullet}}: Shielded Ania from a hit on her first day in the Career training centre, for which she wants to repay him.
* WTHCostumingDepartment: In-universe. Rome didn't think the fake eyelashes went too well with his 'manly' angle.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Though, to his credit, he doesn't like it much.

!!Vash Zerlan:

* AccidentalMurder: Possibly. The author has [[ShrugOfGod never confirmed]] if he intended to [[spoiler:shoot Dardana at the bloodbath]] or was innocently testing out his crossbow.
* AdaptationalVillainy: More neutral in ''Hetalia''.
* TheArcher: Or Crossbow-Shooter, as the case may be.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Doesn't do much talking, but fine with killing.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Dies suddenly and unceremoniously from [[spoiler:an explosion in the early stages of the Games]].
* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler:Shoots his own district partner, Dardana, in the head.]]
* EvilOrphan: Hasn't had a morally-nurturing life after escaping the orphanage.
* FreudianExcuse: Lived a miserable childhood on the streets and in orphanages before turning to the Career training program as his only option.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By pinecones.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: has absolutely no sympathy for any of his competition, killing [[spoiler:Dardana and Meghna]] without a second thought.
* TheStoic: Devoid of emotion other than vague annoyance.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: In a way. The version of Switzerland in ‘’Horrible,’’ Switz, [[spoiler:lasts nearly to the end of the Games,]] but Vash [[spoiler: dies sooner and far more unceremoniously.]]
* TriggerHappy: Is a little too eager to let loose his arrows.

!!Spain Carriedo:

* {{Accidental Murder}}:
** Almost on the receiving end of this trope.
** [[spoiler:He certainly isn't the kind that would kill Aztinca, but...]]
* {{Always Save the Girl}}: As a part of his atonement.
* {{The Atoner}}: He does everything he can to make up for [[spoiler: killing [[{{Jerkass Victim}} Atzinca]].]]
* {{Belligerent Sexual Tension}}: What his and Lovi's relationship can be interpreted easily as.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: Very nice... But with a less than spotless story.
* {{Big Brother Instinct}}: To Lovi.
* {{Break the Cutie}}: Twice: 1) when [[spoiler:he saw his sister die on national television]] and 2) when [[spoiler:he killed Atzinca]].
* {{Crouching Moron Hidden Badass}}: Can be a goofball, but can also kick butt if it comes down to it.
* CynicismCatalyst: Between [[spoiler:his sister's death two years previously, an [[AccidentalMurder accidental]] [[SympatheticMurderBackstory murder]] to his name, and the brief guilt of letting Perdita die]], he certainly has a lot of motivation for trying to protect Lovi.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: He has his small moments with Lovi.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Towards Lovi.
* {{Drop the Hammer}}: He shares a hammer with Lovi.
* TheFakeCutie: What Lovi starts suspecting him to be. At first, it's used in a comedic light when Spain jokes about it to her...then it's used in a horrifying deconstruction when [[spoiler:Lovi almost murders him for it]].
* {{Green Eyes}}: Startlingly so, apparently, and with a bit of untrustworthiness to accompany it.
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: He starts slipping a bit when he sees that the arena to this year's Game is [[spoiler:just like the one that Maria died in]].
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: He chooses to save Lovi [[spoiler: and sacrifices their supplies to Sadik.]]
* {{I Let Gwen Stacy Die}}: He has shades of this when he remembers how he wasn't able to save [[spoiler:Perdita]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By Ania.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: One of the least selfish characters in the series.
* {{Nice Job Breaking It Hero}}: Wow, Spain, nice job [[spoiler: letting it slip that you strangled a chick…]] especially when you're playing the CHILDMURDER GAMES.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: In the core series, at least.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Compared to the fitful Lovi.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: Always tries his best to cheer Lovi up.
* {{Ship Tease}}: Oh so much with Lovi.
* {{Slashed Throat}}: [[spoiler: Although he's already KO-ed with brain damage, he dies this way courtesy of Ania.]]
* SympatheticMurderBackstory: Spain is revealed to [[spoiler:have killed one person]] before the Games: a young woman who mocked his sister's untimely death.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: The calming Blue Oni to Lovi's more impulsive Red Oni.
* {{Retirony}}: Spain could've missed the Reaping- if only his birthday came four days earlier…
* {{Tap on the Head}}: Horrifyingly averted. Justified, because [[spoiler: it's done with a hammer.]]
* {{Unskilled but Strong}}: He scored a 9 but isn't trained like a Career.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Has shades of this with Lovi.

!!Wiremu Sachy:

* AssholeVictim: Killed for [[spoiler:his attempt to rape Finni]].
* {{Attempted Rape}}: Thank ''goodness'' [[spoiler:Sve got there first]].
* {{The Brute}}: In ''Horrible'''s Career group.
%%* {{For the Evulz}}: [[spoiler:What he almost does to Finni.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Given no excuses.
%%* {{Kick the Dog}}: [[spoiler:What he almost does to Finni.]]
* {{Killed Off for Real}}: [[spoiler:By Sve.]]
* {{Neck Snap}}: He kills [[spoiler:Perdita]] this way.
* {{Rape Is A Special Kind Of Evil}}: He's one of the least, if not the least, sympathetic Careers because of this.
* {{Slashed Throat}}: [[spoiler:Dies this way.]]
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Or worse.
* {{Would Hurt a Child}}: Poor, poor [[spoiler:Perdita]].

!!Igris Kirkland:

* AloofBigBrother: To Shiran.
* {{Anti Hero}}: A wannabe of it; Igris keeps on saying that he's okay with killing people in order to get out of the Games alive, but when it comes down to it, [[spoiler: he doesn't actually kill and never slides beyond Type II at worst.]]
* {{Big Ol Eyebrows}}: Both Fronce and Amer love to rib him about it. And his little brother, Shiran, also has them.
* ChekhovsHobby: His skill with embroidery comes in handy when he has to knit up Fronce's wounds.
* [[{{Cool Big Sis}} Cool Big Bro]]: Aloof but caring.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: This is what makes about the majority of his banter with Amer and Fronce enjoyable in a {{crapsack world}}.
* {{Defrosting Ice King}}: At first glance, he seems like a callous jerk- but then you see him soften up like a marshmallow-pillow.
* {{Death by Adaptation}}: He doesn't fare too well in the What Ifs.
* {{First Person Smart Ass}}: As a result of him being a {{Deadpan Snarker}}, his narrative is also snarky.
* FriendlessBackground: due to his wealth and general {{Jerk Ass}} attitude, his only friend is [[{{VitriolicBestBuds}} Fronce]] and later [[spoiler: Amer]].
* {{Genius Bruiser}}: He's very clever and smart, AND he's strong enough to [[spoiler: subdue the Careers in battle.]]
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: [[{{Blatant Lies}} Despite what he says about how Anti Hero he is]], he never abandons Fronce even though it would've been the more pragmatic course of action. Heck, he doesn't even [[spoiler: kill ANIA.]]
* {{Jade Colored Glasses}}: What he starts wearing during the Games- although it doesn't stop him from putting {{Honor before Reason}}.
* {{Jerk with a Heart of Gold}}: One of his defining characteristics. We even sympathize with him when he learn of his reason for wanting to [[spoiler: abandon China to die alone.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By poison.]]
* {{Lethal Chef}}: He once brought in some home-baked cookies to share with everyone...and guess how that turned out?
* {{Lonely Rich Kid}}: It makes it even more sad when Fronce [[spoiler: , his first and only friend, dies]].
** Even Shiran knows of that and thanks Amer for being Igris's friend.
* {{Messy Hair}}: Perpetually so, Games or otherwise.
* {{Mutual Kill}}: [[spoiler: with Ania in the first What If.]]
* {{Not So Above it All}}: It's noted that even though he tried to act like a gentleman, he got too annoyed by Caesar to fully keep his composure during the interviews. Amusingly, the same fate was also shared with his fellow {{Tsundere}}, Lovi.
* SiblingYinYang: He is cynial and aloof, while Shiran is optimistic and friendly.
* SourOutsideSadInside: Always gratingly sarcastic, but deep down just terribly lonely and insecure.
* {{Skewed Priorities}}: Really, Igris? You really had to move out of your hiding place to make TEA in the CHILDMURDER GAMES?!
* StepfordSnarker: See Sour Outside Sad Inside.
* TechnicalPacifist: He has no qualms with combat; he just doesn't want to kill his defeated opponents.
* {{Tsundere}}: A platonic version to Fronce. Even though Igris tries to make himself look all grouch and stoic, his true feelings are shown in his narrative.
* WouldHitAGirl: has no qualms with attacking the fierce Ania in self-defense.
* VitriolicBestBuds: with Fronce.

!!Fronce Foybon:

* AccidentalMurder: Neglects to tell his allies that [[spoiler:his berry sauce is poisonous]] when consumed in large amounts. He is duly horrified when [[spoiler:China]] eats too much one night and dies.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: when he asks Igris if he would leave him behind to die like he did [[spoiler: China]]. Although Igris doesn’t let Fronce know it got to him, he clearly thinks it over before [[spoiler: his later NoOneGetsLeftBehind moment.)]]
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Igris expresses horror and grief when Fronce is [[spoiler: severely wounded and eventually dies.]]
* BandofBrothers: With Igris and [[spoiler:Amer]].
* {{Bishonen}}: Not particularly well-built but quite the ladies' man.
* TheCasanova: It's unclear just how successful his flirting is in everyday life.
* ChekhovsHobby: He's a good cook. This comes in handy during the Hunger Games.
* ChivalrousPervert: an unashamed flirt, but a decent human being nonetheless.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:His death]] serves as this for [[spoiler:Amer]].
* DistressedDude: Not the fighter in his alliances.
* FireForgedFriends: with Igris and [[spoiler:Amer]].
* HollywoodHealing: zigzagged. He initially [[spoiler: survives a sword through the stomach]] thanks to only stitches and disinfectant, but [[spoiler: dies later]] – though not of this injury, but [[spoiler: infection from an unnoticed wound on his neck.]]
* IWillOnlySlowYouDown: unsuccessfully begs [[spoiler: Igris to leave him behind after he’s been severely wounded and infected.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By infection.]]
* TheLoad: To Igris and [[spoiler:Amer, after he's been wounded]].
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: In a plot-relevant way, no less.
* MeaningfulEcho: After Igris abandons [[spoiler: China to die alone]], Fronce indignantly asks him if he would leave him behind in a similar situation. Igris responds that he would instead stick around to taunt him. Much later, after [[spoiler: Fronce has been gravely injured and knocked out,]] he wakes up to discover [[spoiler: Igris is carrying him on his back.]] The first words out of his mouth? [[spoiler:"So you didn't leave me behind after all."]]
* MortalWoundReveal: The [[spoiler:infected cut behind his long hair]].
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After [[spoiler:accidentally killing China]].
* NonActionGuy: Apart from a swordfight with Igris in the training center. Justified, as he is never given a weapon, and cannot fight with his bare hands.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Igris [[spoiler:refuses to leave him to die, even when he’s badly injured.]]
* OnlyFriend: To Igris, before [[spoiler:Amer]] enters the picture.
* PowerTrio: With Igris and China, then Igris and [[spoiler:Amer]].
* PrinceCharmingWannabe: Treats China like a ProperLady, but she remains unimpressed.
* ReplacementGoldfish: He and Igris could be seen as [[spoiler:Amer’s]] replacement goldfish for [[spoiler:Eston and Raivis.]]
* SacrificialLion: One of the last characters to die.
%%* SparedByAdaptation: In the sixth What If.
* SupremeChef: That sauce must have tasted ''amazing''...
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler:Jumps in front of Rome’s sword to protect a blind, injured and unarmed Lovi in the first What If.]]
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Igris and China.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Beneath all the petty squabbling, he and Igris really do love each other.


[[folder: ''Horrible'' Males, District 7 - 12]]

!!Eston von Bock:

* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Raivis.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:His death]] serves as this for [[spoiler:Amer]].
* DistressedDude: Thankfully Amer's ready to protect him.
%%* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:In the third What If.]]
* FireForgedFriends: With Amer and Raivis, especially during the third What If.
* GadgeteerGenius: He says in his intro chapter that he’s very skilled with all sorts of technology, and that he could easily start a fire with a battery and some wire. In the third What If, it’s revealed that his dream is to become talented enough to work in District 3.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Allows Amer to kill him so that Raivis can win]] in the third What If.
* HesitantSacrifice: In a truly heartbreaking scene, [[spoiler:he goes off by himself and cries after a coin toss decides he must die for Raivis.]] This doesn’t stop him from eventually [[spoiler:making the HeroicSacrifice.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By Vahn.]]
* NonActionGuy: Rather scrawny, actually.
* {{Megane}}: Has glasses and can arouse some affection.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to the paranoid, the brain-damaged bully, and the kid with the hero complex...
%%* PowerTrio: With Amer and Raivis.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Raivis’ new ‘brother’ after losing [[spoiler: Toris]] two years previously.
* SacrificialLion: His death definitely makes a difference for Amer... and Vahn.
* ShootTheDog: [[spoiler:Amer kills him in the third What If so that Raivis can be the Victor.]]
* SlashedThroat: Dies this way [[spoiler:in the third What If]].
* TheSmartGuy: In his alliance with Amer and Raivis.
* SomeoneHasToDie: in the third What If, he and his allies Raivis and Amer [[spoiler: are the final three tributes, but only one of them is allowed to survive. Amer volunteers to kill one of them and then himself. Eston loses a coin toss and dies in place of Raivis.]]

* TheVonTropeFamily: Courtesy of his Hetalian name.

!!Sadik Ottoman:

* CoolMask: Wears one 24/7.
* HonorBeforeReason: intended to go as far as he could through the Games without killing to entertain the Capitol. His resolve caved in pretty quickly when hunger got the best of him, [[spoiler: although he still couldn’t bring himself to kill Lovi.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: He features in the ''Brutal'' epilogue before becoming a more important character in ''Horrible.''
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By Amer.]]
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: In the ''Brutal'' epilogue.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: to Spain and Lovi, when he holds the latter hostage in exchange for supplies. [[spoiler: He’s not intending to kill her, though.]]
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistfight: Sadik commences his and Amer's fist fight by pulling a knife, and promptly loses it. [[spoiler: Guess who wins.]] Sort of zigzagged, though, since he wasn't trying to play dirty by taking out the knife, just warning Amer not to mess with him.
* TheQuietOne: Unless he's around [[SitcomArchNemesis Gries]].
* SadisticChoice: Forces Spain to choose between Lovi's left and their alliance's vital supplies.
* ShootHimHeHasAWallet: Zigzagged. Sadik [[spoiler:is killed]] for pulling out a knife, averting this trope, but he was doing so to dissuade, not harm, his attacker.
* SitcomArchNemesis: with Gries. Unlike most of the rivalries in the series, it isn’t too serious and doesn’t culminate in violence in the arena.
* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler:Dies when Amer cuts his throat with broken glass.]]
* TheStoic: Doesn't do much overreacting.

!!Vahn Larus:

* {{Accent Adaptation}}: Sort of. Since most citizens of Panem probably don't know what on earth Russia is, his Russian accent is interpreted by his adoptive parents as a speech impediment and by the doctor as a rare disorder.
* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Never returns Natalya's affections, and for good reason.
* {{An Axe to Grind}}: Gets a pickaxe from the bloodbath.
* {{Asshole Victim}}: True, [[spoiler:Amer]] [[{{Jumping Off the Slippery Slope}} Jumps Off the Slippery Slope]] when he kills him, but after everything he's just done to [[spoiler:Eston and Raivis]], it's easy to sympathize with the murderer.
* {{Bad Boss}}: Keeps his 'allies', Eston and Raivis, in line with threats and violence.
* {{Break the Badass}}: [[spoiler:His crying at his death scene shows the reader just how dangerous and merciless Amer has become.]]
* {{Brother Sister Incest}}: This is why he's scared of Natalya.
* {{The Bully}}: Acts like this to Eston and Raivis, and was implied to be one back in District 9, beating up Russia for his optimism and having a gang of cronies.
* {{The Brute}}: Not belonging to any pack.
* {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: [[spoiler:Has all of his guts ripped out.]]
* {{David Versus Goliath}}: In his fights against [[spoiler:Amer]].
* {{Death Equals Emotion}}: Serves as {{The Stoic}} for most of the series, but breaks down crying and wishing to go home right before he bites it.
* {{Early Bird Cameo}}: Briefly mentioned in ''Brutal'' as having attacked Russia; a rather important supporting character in the sequel.
* {{Even Evil Has Loved Ones}}: Although he tries to avoid Natalya and has no problem with her dying so he can get home, he does claim to genuinely love her (though not in the way she'd like, thank goodness...)
* {{Evil Orphan}}: Though one who is {{Happily Adopted}}.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: Hinted at; he lost his parents at a young age.
* {{Funetik Aksent}}: Although not terribly consistent for readability.
* {{Happily Adopted}}: Natalya's parents took him in and paid for his surgery after he was injured in the machinery accident that killed his parents.
* {{Heartwarming Orphan}}: As a child.
* {{Husky Russkie}}: Strong and based on Russia.
* {{Just Toying With Them}}: Does this to Amer in the third What If because he's certain he can beat him. [[{{Crowning Moment of Awesome}} Amer proves him wrong]].
* {{Kick the Dog}}: Cuts off Raivis' finger just to keep him in line.
* {{Killed Off for Real}}: [[spoiler:By Amer.]]
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: Sees nothing wrong with [[spoiler: murdering and chopping off fingers for punishment.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way at Amer's hands.]]
* {{Not Blood Siblings}}: With Natalya.
* {{Oblivious Adoption}}: Possibly. His adoptive mother told him she was his real mother, and it's unknown if he ever figured out the truth.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: States that he really does care for Natalya, despite her {{Yandere}} tendencies. Subverted in that he'd be perfectly fine with her death as long as it means he can win.
* {{Power Trio}}: With Eston and Raivis.
* {{Rasputinian Death}}: [[spoiler:He has most of his abdominal cavity removed before his cannon fires.]]
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Is on the receiving end of a truly merciless one from Amer.
* {{Russian Guy Suffers Most}}: [[spoiler:Gets what might be the most painful death in the entire series, having everything – all the way through to his spine – hacked up and ripped apart.]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't show much emotion until [[spoiler:begging for mercy from Amer]].
* {{This is Unforgivable}}: Said to him by Amer after [[spoiler:he kills Eston and Raivis]].
* {{Used to be a Sweet Kid}}: Seems to be one in Natalya's flashback.
* {{Villains Want Mercy}}: [[spoiler:Begs Amer to stop his {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}.]]
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler:Celladora]] at the bloodbath.
* {{You Monster}}: Said to him by Amer after [[spoiler:he kills Eston and Raivis]].

!!Amer Jones:

* AmericaSavesTheDay: Or he certainly wants to.
* AntiHero: definitely wants to be a straight hero, but [[spoiler: ends up as a type II-IV,]] depending on how the reader interprets him.
* TheAtoner: During the latter part of ''Horrible''. Notable in that all his attempts to make up for what he had done wrong [[spoiler: failed miserably, through no fault of his own]].
* BandOfBrothers: First with Eston and Raivis, then Fronce and Igris, and finally [[spoiler: Shiran]].
* BeAllMySinsRemembered: Can't rebuild his self-image as hero after [[spoiler: killing Vahn.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Nice enough to swear protection over most people he meets... [[spoiler: And horribly murder anyone in his way.]]
* BerserkButton: Never hurt or threaten his friends in front of him. Ever.
* BigBrotherInstinct: To Raivis and Eston (ironic in that he's younger than both of them) as well as his own brother, Matt. Eventually extends to [[spoiler: Shiran]] as well.
* BigDamnHeroes: He rushes in to save Raivis and Eston in chapter 25.
* TheBigGuy: In both of his alliances.
* BigEater: One chapter opens with him whining for more food, which is apparently a habit.
* BondingOverMissingParents: He bonds with [[spoiler: Shiran over their missing friend/brother, Igris]].
* BrokenBird: He's pretty much traumatized for life by the [[spoiler: end of the story]].
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Vows to save most of the people on his path.
%%* CurbStompBattle: Vs. Vahn.
* CynicismCatalyst: It's hard to pick just one for him, between [[spoiler: the deaths of ''all four'' of his allies, his survival at the cost of Igris' life, his [[ShootHimHeHasAWallet murder]] of Sadik, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge torturing and killing]] Vahn, and losing his illusion of himself as a hero.]] Suffice to say that he's pretty broken as of [[spoiler: the epilogue.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: On occasion, particularly later in the fic when he's allied with Fronce and Igris.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:As he won ''Horrible'', he's pretty much doomed to die in every ''What If'' ending.]]
* DeclarationofProtection: To pretty much all his allies.
* DespairEventHorizon: After the death of [[spoiler:his first alliance]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: The manner in which [[spoiler:he kills Vahn]].
* DoomMagnet: Justified and lampshaded.
* DrivenToSuicide: Almost. Played nearly straight in the first ending of ''What If'': [[spoiler:he doesn't kill himself, but allows Gries to slit his throat]]. Played straight in the [[spoiler:sixth]] What If.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Platonic version; he is more than willing to die for friends he's known for only a few days.
* {{Eagleland}}: Wants to be a Type I, but is more of a mix between the two.
* EvilMeScaresMe: This trope is exactly what happened after he realized [[spoiler:what he did to Vahn]].
%%* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: [[spoiler:He dishes this out to Vahn.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:At the end of ''Horrible'' (although it winds up being Igris who dies) and in the third What If.]]
%%* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: YMMV on whether he actually becomes a heel or not.
* FailureToSaveMurder: He believes [[spoiler:Shiran]] will hold him responsible for the death of [[spoiler:his brother, Igris. Shiran]] proves him wrong.
* FightingFromTheInside: He tries darned hard not to go psychotic again.
%%* FireForgedFriends: With both of his alliances.
%%* AGoodWayToDie: [[spoiler:In the third What If.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:After killing Vahn.]]
* TheHero: In his first alliance.
* HeroicBSOD: Falls into this after [[spoiler: the death of his first alliance]] and never really gets better, even in [[spoiler: the four-year later epilogue]].
* HeroicResolve: When fighting Vahn in the third What If.
* HeroicSacrifice: He volunteers for the Hunger Games in place of his twin brother, Matt, [[spoiler: although slightly subverted in that he doesn't die. This trope is played straight in the Third What If.]]
%%* HeroicSelfDeprecation: To extreme levels.
* HeroicSuicide: Considered this near the end of Horrible so that Igris could win. [[spoiler: He ends up going through with it in the 3rd What If.]]
%%* HeroicWannabe: In true ''Hetalia'' style.
* HeroWithAnFInGood: He tries so hard to be the hero, but constantly makes things even worse.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Very defensive, he even lampshades this in "Supercritical."

* IdiotHero: Doesn't seem to realize protecting others means killing at first.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: Will feel guilty over any perceived failures.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Uses his own broken glasses to [[spoiler: kill Sadik]].
* InterruptedSuicide: Zigzagged. He's about to kill himself so that [[spoiler: Igris can live]], but is interrupted not by his brother, but the thought that his brother will be watching.
* TheInsomniac: Early on, when he can't find an ally.
* ItsPersonal: His opinion of Vahn goes from general dislike to UnstoppableRage after the aforementioned [[spoiler: kills his allies]].
%%* TheLancer: To Igris in his second alliance.
%%* LetsGetDangerous
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: [[spoiler:After killing Sadik, he goes on to violently murder Vahn.]]
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: [[spoiler:Continues to mutilate Vahn, even when he's so injured he can no longer be called a threat.]]
%%* KickTheSonOfABitch: To Vahn.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: Kills [[spoiler:Eston in the third What If]].
* MilesToGoBeforeISleep: [[spoiler:Amer would certainly like to kill himself at the end of the third What If scenario, but that would mean leaving his two allies to kill each other. So he has to ShootTheDog before offing himself.]]
* MoreHeroThanThou: Has this debate with Igris at the end of ''Horrible''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After [[spoiler:shredding Vahn]].
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler:Being unable to save his allies and killing two tributes, one extremely violently.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:His desire to avenge Raivis leads to Eston's death.]]
%%* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler:To Vahn.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Realizes that anything bad he says about Vahn would also apply to himself, as they have both been responsible for deaths in the Games.
* PolarOppositeTwins: Amer is outgoing, brave and excitable, while his twin brother Matt is introverted, shy and calm.
* PowerTrio: Twice: first with Raivis and Eston, then Fronce and Igris.
%%* PyrrhicVictory: Is the Victor, Broken Bird and all.
* QuicksandSucks: [[spoiler:Dies this way]] in the sixth What If.
%%* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Delivers a magnificent one to Vahn.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Eston and Igris.
* RevengeBeforeReason: He charges off to [[spoiler:kill Vahn after Raivis’ death]], ignoring the fact that he’s just left his other ally alone and defenceless. [[spoiler:This makes everything worse.]]
* RussianRoulette: Does a variation involving poison with [[spoiler:Igris at the end of ''Horrible'']].
* SadisticChoice: Being forced to choose between killing himself, thereby traumatizing his brother, and [[spoiler: killing Igris/letting him die]]. In the third What If, he immediately chooses to kill himself, but then has to choose between doing so right away or killing Eston first.

%%* StepfordSnarker
* {{Tears of Remorse}}: After injuring Spain in ''Horrible'' and [[spoiler: actually killing him]] in ''What If''.
%%* {{Tsundere}}
* {{The Unfavourite}}: Her intro chapter makes it clear that her grandfather preferred Feli to her. It's also telling that he didn't come to see her after the reapings, while apparently giving Feli advice on staying away from Careers when she was reaped.
* {{Unresolved Sexual Tension}}: YMMV, but if you support the {{Ship Tease}} between her and Spain, it's definitely there.
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: After complaining of hunger for quite a while, she and Spain finally get some food donated to them... only for it to be stolen by Sadik.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Sort of, kinda hinted at with Sadik. Definitely goes towards this trope in the "If NOFOJ Wasn't NOFOJ" chapter of ''What If''.

* {{Warrior Poet}}: In between bouts of philosophy, she also manages to kill at least two people.
