Terrible is a Hunger Games/Axis Powers Hetalia crossover written by Sharon Stoppable. It is intended to be a companion piece to the {{FanFic/Brutal Series}} and follows its style of reimagining the Hetalia characters as district teenagers thrust into the Hunger Games.

----

!!!'''Provides Examples Of:'''

* [[{{ActionFilmQuietDramaScene}} Action FanFic Quiet Drama Scene]]: Chelsea's nostalgic memory of the campfires back home.
** Reise and Opal talking about why they volunteered, culminating in Reise realizing she thinks of Opal as a friend.
** Rod remembering his time with Honey and how her death drove him into depression.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Gerome, Kiku, Katya, and Thuaine.
* AlternateUniverseFic: Like in the Brutal Series, the Hetalia characters are human teenagers living in Panem, not personifications of countries living in past-to-present-day Earth.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Tino and Susan; Russo and Tasha. Canada also has a slight crush on Katya which she does not reciprocate.
* AllMenArePerverts: Katya thinks this trope almost word-for-word after she catches Canada ogling her chest.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Talia is implied to have autism, but it is never actually stated. Opal seems to have a disorder as well, although it is more difficult to pinpoint.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: Opal prays occasionally and makes reference to food she is not allowed to eat.
* AngstySurvivingTwin: Canada to Usa.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Sealand seems to be this to his older brother (obviously based off England).
* AntiVillain: Katya, Gerome and Opal are Type II - they joined the Career program out of pressure, fear or feelings of inadequacy, never seem to enjoy killing, and have many sympathetic traits, like Gerome's relationship with [[spoiler: Talia]] and Opal's with [[spoiler: Reise]].
** Kiku and Reise are Type I - they offer no {{Freudian Excuse}} for their volunteering (or, in Reise's case, psychotic behavior) but both have humanizing qualities and lines they will not cross.
*** Canada is arguably a Type IV, simply by virtue of being in the Career pack.
* AnyoneCanDie: Obviously.
* AnAxeToGrind: Canada uses one as a weapon.
* AuthorAvatar: Opal manages to be a well-done and non-{{MarySue}}-ish one.
* AxCrazy: Definitely Addison; Reise to a letter extent. [[spoiler:Russo]] might be headed this way as well.
* BadBoss: Addison keeps her Career pack (and her gang back home in District 1) in line with threats, violence and punishment.
** Russo's heading this way with his treatment of Tino, too.
* BandOfBrothers: The Morningstars, for the most part.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Sweet, mild-mannered [[spoiler:Canada]] completely snaps when [[spoiler:his]] allies ignore [[spoiler:him]] one time too many.
** Opal may seem harmless, but [[spoiler:she's the first to get a kill at the bloodbath]], after [[spoiler:cutting off that tribute's arm]], no less.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Romano volunteers for the Games to protect his sister, Talia.
* [[BitchInSheepsClothing Bastard In Sheep's Clothing]]: Thuaine plays the Ďnice guyí angle during his interview and seems good-natured enough at first, but as the Games progress, becomes increasingly malicious and spiteful.
* BigDamnHeroes: Reise attacks Addison from behind right when the latter is about to kill Opal.
* BloodierAndGorier / DarkerAndEdgier: Carries on the {{Brutal Series}}' tradition of putting the Hetalia characters through completely horrible, violent, and depressing situations.
