[[folder: Characters ]]

* '''England:''' In canon, he's a snarky {{Tsundere}} who has had his [[TheBritishEmpire days of pillaging and plundering as a pirate]] and frequently gets into fights with America or France, but is more bark than bite and clearly has a softer side (he's not called a Tsun''dere'' for nothing, after all), is more VitriolicBestBuds than outright enemies with America and France, and [[LoveHurts suffered]] (and probably [[TheWoobie still is suffering]]) from heartbreak due to the one he cared for the most [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution leaving him]]. In fanworks, one side of his Tsundere personality is all too often exaggerated at the expense of the other - and when said exaggerated side is the 'tsun', he becomes a ManipulativeBastard who only cares about himself, his empire, and/or [[{{Yandere}} forcibly]] [[IfICantHaveYou possessing]] his object of desire. Becomes especially bad if Russia is made into the DracoInLeatherPants opposite of him, or America is woobiefied into an innocent and helpless victim.
* '''America:''' In canon, he's a [[BoisterousBruiser boisterous]] and [[IdiotHero dense]] [[TheDitz ditz]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold but ultimately a good-hearted]] LoveFreak who can be a jerk to Canada or England but not ''all the time.'' When rabid Canada fans or militant England/someone-other-than-him shippers get a hold of him, however, he either becomes a JerkJock and a BigBrotherBully who abuses and victimizes [[SympatheticSue poor, neglected, widdle Mattie-kins]] or a complete [[GlobalIgnorance moron]] and [[{{Jerkass}} asshole]] who can't accomplish anything with England other than breaking his heart ''again'', or throws away all the proofs of affection that they've given each other in order to deliberately mess with him (double points if they make England a PuritySue LoveMartyr as well).
** Some fans also [[{{Flanderization}} flanderize]] the complex issues surrounding the US atomic bombings and occupation of Japan at the end of WWII into "America is a BespectacledBastardBoyfriend or psychopathic {{Yandere}} who abuses/rapes a weepy, horribly traumatized Japan". How this sadist!America and traumatized!Japan could ever have become the good friends they're canonly shown to be before ''and'' after WWII (not to mention the good allies they are in real life) is a mystery.
* '''Japan:''' In canon, he's an InscrutableOriental who [[PerpetualFrowner rarely smiles]] or [[TheStoic displays extreme emotions]] but [[NotSoStoic *does* have emotions underneath it all]] and is actually something of a YamatoNadeshiko too once you look past his [[SugarAndIcePersonality social awkwardness]], being polite, soft-spoken, and patient even with patience-testing characters. Many fanworks, however, only [[NeverLiveItDown focus]] on his [[ImperialJapan imperial years]] as his only defining trait, portraying Japan as a BastardBoyfriend / {{Yandere}} who is backstabbing, abusing and raping China and his other siblings to MoralEventHorizon levels and leaving them traumatized for life, completely ignoring the modern day strips that show him being on at least relatively friendly terms with China and Korea and his modern day friendships with America, England and Greece.
** Or his [[AmericansHateTingle Western]] [[{{Hatedom}} anti-fans]] from taking ''any'' of his traits, positive or negative, and blowing them way out of proportion to "prove" what a "horrible" character he is; his JapanesePoliteness will be taken as proof that he's an ExtremeDoormat, his occasional passive-aggressiveness as proof that he's a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] [[TheSociopath sociopath]], his slight ShipTease with other characters as proof that he's a MarySue harem lead who has half of the cast fawning over him (not to mention how attacks on his character [[SarcasmMode coincidentally]] [[DieForOurShip peaked]] when episodes of him [[TriangRelations with Greece and Turkey]] aired...), etc.
** ''Really'', the fact that he [[KindheartedCatLover gets along well with Greece]], should be enough proof all on its own that he's not some sociopathic bastard who cares only about himself. It also can't be a coincidence that almost all fanworks that invoke this trope with him the hardest never even mention Greece in passing relation to him and that the few {{Dark Fic}}s that ''do'' mention Greece have Japan ultimately be sympathetic or at least show some redeeming traits.
* '''China:''' For some other fanworks, you can swap Japan and China's names in the above "BastardBoyfriend / {{Yandere}}" sentence and have it be just as accurate a description, but with even ''less'' justification. Yes, real-life China isn't exactly a bastion of human rights, but real-life nation =/= ''Hetalia'' nation-tan, ''especially'' when said nation-tan is a quirky and sympathetic panda lover. A nagging, old-fashioned, clingy China who treats his younger siblings like little children and except for Korea drives them away from him when he tries to help them or unintentionally embarrasses them with his old man behavior is canon; a {{Yandere}} China who abuses/beats up/rapes Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan and Hong Kong into submission during either [[ImperialChina Imperial]] or [[RedChina Red]] times, used to abuse Japan in every possible way ([[ShotaCon and preferently]] [[BrotherSisterIncest sexual ones]]) when he was a kid and/or heartlessly approves of the massacres of either his own or other nations's citizens by any of his governments is '''not'''.
* '''Russia:''' His is an... ''interesting'' case to say the least, as fans have given him all kinds of treatments on the broad spectrum on both this trope and the DracoInLeatherPants treatment. In this case, it also overlaps with DieForOurShip. As pointed out there, Russia's the most likely character to be used as a stock antagonist in many, ''many'' shipping and non-shipping fics, not so much because the fanwriters hate him (though there ''are'' some that do), but more because he's the closest thing the series has to an "evil" character and it's almost too easy to [[{{Flanderization}} crank up]] what's already there (namely, his being a StepfordSmiler, TheFakeCutie and PsychopathicManchild, and how Real Life Soviet Russia's atrocities, such as TheGulag, are no laughing matter). Suffice it to say that while he's no saint in canon, and even when Himaruya himself has pointed out that Russia is not so much "evil" in as much as he's simply [[ManChild "childishly cruel and not fully aware of how mean he is"]], people will [[NeverLiveItDown constantly iron out]] [[HiddenDepths every nuance]] of his character and forget about stuff like his [[DespairEventHorizon genuinely heartbreaking]] [[UsedToBeASweetKid backstory]] and [[PetTheDog his genuine affection for his]] [[FragileFlower older sister Ukraine]] to turn him into a vicious blood-thirsty psychopathic [[MurderersAreRapists raping nutjob]] of the highest order.
* '''Belarus:''' Yes, in canon she is a KnifeNut and a {{Yandere}} who is definitely [[LoveMakesYouCrazy love-crazed]] for [[BrotherSisterIncest her brother Russia]]. But fans can go way too far, forgetting Belarus is much more of an [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless]] girl than an indiscriminately AxCrazy murderess/rapist when she's not chasing Russia.
* '''Romano/South Italy:''' Apparently, the fact that he's got a HairTriggerTemper and feels like TheUnfavorite in comparison to Veneziano/North Italy makes him a BastardBoyfriend towards Spain who needs to be "saved" by France (Him showing genuine concern for Spain in ''canon'' when the latter fell ill? Surely you jest!). His harshness towards his younger brother is also occasionally ramped in fandom, going as far as to have him portrayed ''raping'' Veneziano to "keep him in check" or out of jealousy of his talents.
** This is so bad sometimes that there recently was wank about it on the Hetalia kinkmeme. A well-known Romano basher who thinks "he is abusive in canon towards Spain" has been accused more than once of spamming it with either Romano-bashing comments or requests in which she asks for fics where Romano is killed or beaten up for abusing Spain. Much lulz and facepalms were had.
*** It had infamously been brought up again in the comments to a Spain/Romano fill that included "Romano as a closeted homophobe". The prompt requested for a story in which Romano, a closeted homosexual, would be homophobic and treat homosexual nations horribly as an extension of his own self-hatred. The author was handling the very "dangerous" prompt tastefully, and yet when she reached the point in which Romano "exploded", many fangirls started demanding for him to be punished/beaten/killed/etc., [[UnfortunateImplications creepily equalling Romano's fic behavior with real life gay bashing]], saying that Romano is an homophobe '''in Hetalia canon''', etc. And whoever tried to break in and didn't kiss these overprojecting fangirls's butts was accused of being an homophobe and hating gays in RealLife. [[FanDumb Sigh, seeing it gone was a relief.]] Though due to the amount of negative reception and fans feeling any punishment the author would give Romano would never be enough (and that she planned to give him a happy ending after he worked through his problems), it appears the author [[CutShort abruptly discontinued the story afterwards]], leaving readers hanging.
** Unfortunately, the Romano bashing has appeared again on the kink meme in the form of anons who claim that it's illogical for Spain to ''care'' about Romano because Romano acts so mean and horrible to him or that he cares about Romano only because he's a saintly LoveMartyr and anyone less than a saint would have seen Romano for the unworthy bastard he is. In either case, they demonized Romano's {{Tsundere}} behavior as proof that he's utterly undeserving of Spain's time and attention and dismissed the signs of care and affection he's shown for Spain in canon as unimportant because he wasn't direct or clear enough with them (apparently, saying "[[http://aph.starry-sky.com/kiz.html Wa...wait for me! I'll do something about this, but I'm not promising anything!]]" isn't direct/clear enough) while making excuses for Spain's own faults and the times when he wasn't really helpful with Romano's feelings of inferiority or insecurity. Cue eyerolling by many other anons who pointed out that all these claims were essentially just attempts to prove that Romano is an asshole who hurts sweet innocent wonderful Spain who is NEVER EVER responsible for anything ''he'' does.
** Becomes especially ridiculous when you consider that the only canon "evidence" these fans can dredge up for Romano being physically abusive towards Spain is that he peed on Spain's house (which was entirely PlayedForLaughs)... and that's it. Romano's often sarcastic and short-tempered with Spain but the only time he has been shown to use actual physical violence against him was a head butt when Romano was a child (because Spain was unknowingly touching his erogenous IdiotHair) and even his HairTriggerTemper tends to be limited to grumbling about Spain's weird habits but still going along with them, like when he complained loudly about turtles invading his house but didn't really do anything to stop Spain from cooing over them. Heck, Norway ''strangles'' Denmark at least twice in canon and pretty much all fans agree that this is just for humor or {{Tsundere}} purposes and not an actual sign of abusive behavior; why can't Romano's comparatively mild behavior towards Spain be viewed in the same light?
* '''Veneziano/North Italy:''' On the other hand, the more rabid Romano fangirls tend to blame Veneziano for everything that went wrong with Romano's life and demonize Veneziano to make his older brother look better. It's hardly N. Italy's fault that Romano is screwed up in the self-confidence department, and he actually ''does'' care for Romano and shows it. And making him into a PsychopathicManchild to woobify Germany (who of course is completely blameless of ''his'' country's WWII misdeeds) and have Prussia rescue him? Does not compute.
** An example of the rabid Germancest hate against Italy [[http://www.mediafire.com/?ed4cni94ynciwh8 is here.]] It's on Mediafire since image sites kill it, but it's worth the download since it shows the butthurt and the batshit in a simply priceless way.
* '''Turkey:''' Yes, he's a BoisterousBruiser who once wanted to [[TakeOverTheWorld conquer Europe]] and is no friend of Hungary or Greece, but his frequent portrayal in fanworks shipping him with one of these two nations (''especially'' the latter one) as a power/control-hungry BastardBoyfriend who doesn't care one iota about the other's feelings aside from [[BreakTheCutie using]] [[ManipulativeBastard any]] [[DomesticAbuser means]] [[BlackComedyRape possible]] to make them acknowledge his dominance over either Greece or Hungary is definitely taking it too far. Even if his personality isn't the mellowest one around, [[PetTheDog his canon protectiveness of Japan]] should at the very least imply a JerkWithAHeartOfGold instead of a full-blown {{Jerkass}}. And then there's his sympathetic portrayal in the HetaliaBloodbath2010 and his InterGenerationalFriendship with Iceland.
** Turkey bashing shows up in some Spain/Romano fics, stemming from a canon incident when Turkey kidnapped a young Romano, who was then rescued by Spain. Some authors push it too far, however, and make him seem genuinely evil and often with a [[{{Shotacon}} gross obsession with Romano]], often portraying him as cruel and abusive so Spain can swoop in to save Romano and show how pure and caring he is by contrast.
** His treatment of Greece in numerous fics takes the cake, however. Greece abused as a kid or teen by Ottoman Empire!Turkey? Turkey raping Greece because he [[RapeAsDrama wants to teach him a lesson or can't control his urges anymore]]? All par for the course in Turkey/Greece fics, to such an extent that Greece sometimes gets caught up in this trope too, turning from a patient, laidback KindheartedCatLover who gets snippy only with Turkey to an angry, violent man who's bitter towards the entire world and has no patience for anybody he thinks is stupid (which includes nations other than Turkey), just so that the fanwriter can show how his relationship with Turkey is ''not'' a DestructiveRomance, even when Turkey is treating him worse than he ever did in canon, because Greece's ''always'' been like that and/or Turkey is the only one he shows his sweet side to. There is not enough room on this page to describe everything wrong about that.
* '''Prussia:''' More than one fan has taken his SmallNameBigEgo, ButtMonkey and BadAss traits, used for comedy in the series, to all kinds of extremes. As a consequence, '''many''' fics and RP scenarios have Prussia derailed into either:
** A) a CardCarryingVillain who rapes and beats his allies and friends to keep them terrorized and under his thumbs (if he's not [[{{Squick}} eating Jewish children]] for the lulz - yeah, that was mentioned in a really infamous RP log) and is to blame for '''all''' the German UsefulNotes/WorldWarII atrocities while his younger brother Germany is merely "misguided by his bosses" or yet another victim of Prussia's abuse. Which, you know, completely ignores how lots of the Nazi resistance groups ''came from the ex-Prussian territories'', among other stuff;
** B) an absolutely brainless {{Jerkass}} whom every single European country hates to death, who stuffs himself with beer, only exists to make dumb jokes and act like a {{Troll}} without showing any good personality traits, and whose presence WILL make Hungary go automatically [[AxCrazy frying pan crazy]] before he can even breathe in her surroundings.
* '''Germany:''' In WWII-centric "historically accurate" DarkerAndEdgier fanfics, he is often shown as a DrillSergeantNasty power-hungry SocialDarwinist maniac who is obsessed with Hitler's ideology, tortures and rapes occupied nations (especially France or Belgium), and is completely sadistic. Sometimes [[MoralityPet Italy is capable of humanizing him]], [[LoveMartyr but often not and he ends up just as abused/raped/dead as them]]. This has become an UndeadHorseTrope: there are fics dedicated to pointing out that a lot of the people who the Nazis were responsible for killing were ''Germans'', that he mentioned in canon that he was having problems with [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler his boss]], and so on.
* '''France:''' Yes, France is a LovableSexManiac whose treatment of the nation-tans often skirts BlackComedyRape. Yes, he can be shallow and whiny and often sucks at fighting. Yup, he can be quite the ManipulativeBastard if he wants. And yeah, he and England don't get along. However, that does NOT give fandom a pass to flanderise France into an absolute moron who only thinks with his dick, a heartless rapist who lacks any character depth and must be shot to death so he won't tie up and brutally rape the whole cast (despite how France actually ''denies'' being a rapist in canon), or a slutty SmugSnake who toys with a teen!America's feelings and insecurities (and maybe, even his body) during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution purely to spit on and laugh in the face of a {{Purity Stu}}fied England who is '''never ever''' to blame for his own actions or decisions.
* '''Ancient Rome''': Some pro-[[TheUnfavorite Romano]] fics take Grandpa Rome's canon [[ParentalFavoritism Grandparental Favoritism]] for Northern Italy a little too far, showing him as a drunken, sadistic bastard that beats and abuses Romano because he isn't as cute and sweet as his little brother instead of the [[BoisterousBruiser boisterous]] and somewhat hare-brained but ultimately goodhearted person he truly is. Made even more stupid after Himaruya actually made a blog post revealing that [[http://himaruya.blog61.fc2.com/blog-entry-1115.html Rome visits Romano too when he comes visit from the afterlife]], [[TearsOfJoy and Romano sheds happy tears when this happens]].
** And according to them, the only reason Grandpa Rome loves Northern Italy in the first place is because ''he's sexually attracted to him'', which makes no sense at all.
** There's also all the times he's portrayed as a DepravedBisexual who had sex with AnythingThatMoves, and sexually abused (and even '''raped''') AncientGreece and AncientEgypt, the two female nations he fell in love with, because [[InsaneTrollLogic sleeping with a lot of women means he MUST be a heartless manwhore]], and how historical Ancient Rome is particularly famous for its [[BreadAndCircuses deca]][[TheCaligula dence]]. (Which is [[FridgeHorror potentially worse]] if you go by the {{fanon}} theory that Grandpa Rome ''is'' the father of Modern Greece and Modern Egypt.)
** Don't forget all the creepy "headcanons" about Ancient Rome raping young France ([[UnfortunateImplications and "being to blame" for France's canon lechery]]), young Spain or his own grandsons, and even young England based on supposed ~historical canon~. For one thing, it ignores how ''Rome himself'' never had sex with males in canon, which is separate from his own citizens' behavior; for another, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pederasty#Romans it was... a quite more complex matter]] due to the heavy ValuesDissonance. ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pederasty_in_ancient_Greece And the *Greeks* came up with it, anyway]].)
* '''Spain''': He is a really strange case. While Romano often gets bashed to Hell and back for being supposedly "evil and abusive" to him, he's more often than not played as a helpless and ultra-innocent woobie whose own flaws "can't be helped" and "should not be taken in account". There are some fans, however, that gleefully insist that Spain MUST actually be a {{Yandere}} or a CutePsycho in canon, taking incidents in which he's shown [[BewareTheNiceOnes not-so-nice sides]] that are actually PlayedForLaughs and [[NeverLiveItDown blowing them WAY out of proportion.]]
** Also, out of all the fics portraying Spain's Conquistador or Civil War days, it's highly likely that many of them will have Spain as a {{Yandere}} rapist/abuser towards his OC colonies or fellow canon nations. While the majority take the BastardBoyfriend route, others definitely play it as this trope, and the UnfortunateImplications just can't be uglier.
** And then there are the fics that portray Spain as a [[PervertDad perverted]] [[{{Shotacon}} pedophile]] who regularly tries to rape the young kid Italian brothers/America/one of the old Spanish colonies/etc...
* '''Austria:''' While not a super obvious case like others, there's enough evidence to put him here. The Austrian Empire ''has'' had a war-full story and the relationships with other nations (France, Hungary prior to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Spain, etc. and '''especially''' Italy) were ''very'' conflicted, yep, but that's barely an excuse to portray him as being a DomesticAbuser who regularly beats, rapes, whips, tortures and executes Hungary and North Italy. He was already a harsh SternTeacher in canon, and yet he ''still'' did Chibitalia's work for a day so the kid would have some time alone after HRE left the manse - that's enough proof of how Austria is more complex than he looks.
** There's also a very pervasive {{fanon}} that accuses Austria of having forced Hungary to put on dresses and physically/sexually/mentally abusing her during the times she served at his mansion and/or during the Austro-Hungarian Compromise. First of all, it's '''never''' mentioned who exactly told Hungary to get her GirlinessUpgrade, as the strip treating the days around Hungary's arrival to Austria's mansion only shows Hungary in a dress by the end but never explains who's behind the idea. Second, Austria treats Hungary with far more deference than he does with young!Italy on screen. Third, Hungary ''[[BodyguardCrush willingly]]'' [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend protects Austria]] in chronologically posterior strips and Austria [[UnderstandingBoyfriend allows her to do so]], something that a DomesticAbuser wouldn't be likely to do. Fourth, Hungary and Austria are '''still''' in excellent terms after their off-screen divorce ''and she still willingly protects him if needed''. And yet many fans '''''still''''' bend over to say that Austria the character mistreated Hungary the character, using "historical canon" as an excuse and reducing the ''very'' complex historical matters behind the Austro-Hungarian Compromise to "Austria was a monstruous and cruel rapist/wife beater and Hungary was a weak baby unable to stand up to him!"
*** It's also hard to buy that interpretation when WordOfGod put in the character profile for Hungary that she cared for Austria so much because [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe he was the first person ever to treat her with respect]], which doesn't exactly jive with "He beat and raped her and forced her to wear dresses."
* '''Canada''': Oh yes, believe it or not, even the [[ShrinkingViolet sweet]] [[DistressedDude unassertive]] NiceGuy is not immune from this treatment. As mentioned above, many of Canada's rabid fangirls have a terrible habit of putting his brother America down in order to glorify him into a [[SympatheticSue Sympathetic Stu]]. This phenomenon has reached a point where it's actually costing Canada popularity points with annoyed circles in the Hetalia fandom. In particular, a good number of America fangirls who are sick of seeing America colored up as a JerkJock to make Canada look like a saint have issued their own retaliation. Usually, they'll exaggerate Canada's BewareTheNiceOnes moments (such as that one time when he seriously chewed America out with a three hour long TheReasonYouSuckSpeech) and turn him into a full fledged emotionally and verbally abusive BitchInSheepsClothing, or in some cases outright AxCrazy (mostly with a hockey stick, but at least one incident involved a chainsaw). While Canada does indeed resent his brother at times, he is shown to still care for him to some extent and their relationship is more or less normal between brothers (even if it is a little vitriolic, it's mostly played for laughs anyway).
* '''Seychelles''': Overlapping with DieForOurShip like whoa. She's a HotBlooded PluckyGirl who has some ShipTease and UST with both France and England in [[HighSchoolAU Gakuen Hetalia]]: '''obviously''' that makes her a total slutty whore who has '''''no''''' worth or depth as a character, is an offense to women everywhere, and must be horribly tortured and killed off.
* '''Sweden:''' It's a bit rare, but when it happens, it can get ugly. Overlapping with DieForOurShip as well, Sweden in canon is [[FaceOfAThug gruff]] and TheStoic with a [[GentleGiant genuinely]] [[SugarAndIcePersonality nice]] [[HiddenDepths side]]. But in certain fanfics, he's often twisted into an [[DomesticAbuse abusive husband]] towards a poor, [[{{Wimpification}} wimpified]] Finland, who can't leave him because of his StockholmSyndrome. UnfortunateImplications couldn't get uglier...
* '''Denmark''': If there's a member of the Nordic Group that is likely to be portrayed as a total asshole in the fandom, it's Denmark. Sure, he can be pushy and HotBlooded and Norway [[VitriolicBestBuds sometimes hits him to keep him in line]], but that doesn't mean that he raped and beat the Nordics into submission and that's why they don't seem to take him seriously. He could've easily treated Belarus badly in Hetaween, but he cheerfully accepted competing with her cosplay group -- shouldn't that be a sign that he isn't evil or a {{Jerkass}}?
* '''The "Alternate Coloring" Characters''': A while ago, Himaruya released [[http://www.geocities.jp/himaruya/4ka04.html a series of cards]] that included the Axis members and the [[GenderFlip Nyotalia]] girls in alternate costumes, some of them looking more badass or snarky than their normal selves. Guess what: the fandom '''immediately''' pegged these alternate designs as {{Evil Counterpart}}s, AxCrazy {{Blood Knight}}s or blood-thirsty {{Yandere}}s who are [[SuperpoweredEvilSide the embodiment of the canon chars' evil tendences]] - at best they're {{Sociopathic Hero}}es. This completely ignores how Himaruya has said '''nothing''' about them being different in personality from the originals, as well as the UnfortunateImplications of a ''whole'' nation having purely evil/twisted instincts - and it's more often than not a cheap excuse [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation to have the nations go psycho on each other without any explanations]]. (Made even uglier when you realize that these people apply this to 2p!female-America... who is AmbiguouslyBrown, thus crossing into possible racism as well.)
* ''Everyone'' gets this by default in the popular PornWithoutPlot setup in which defeating another nation in battle requires the victor to rape them. Apart from the many, many {{Squick}} and FridgeHorror problems with this, [[FridgeLogic if this was true]], [[UnsettlingGenderReveal Austria would have noticed Italy's anatomy much sooner]]. Not to mention it's very hard to sympathise with a victim when you know that the logic behind the setup would have required them to have done the exact same thing themselves; doesn't by any means make it ''okay'', but it does mess with the impact somewhat.
* The nations' attitudes to {{muggle}}s in various fics might be an example of this, or not. The GagDub's dark humour does occasionally portray the nations as being remarkably flippant about mass murder and death; China criticises the others for not being totalitarian and seems far too happy when discussing his people's "crushing poverty", Russia offhandedly remarks that the USSR states came to live with him "after a little genocide, of course", and Germany threatens Italy with "ending up an experiment" and his response to Romano announcing a "surprise" is "Great. What is it, another Jew?" However, they never actually kill anyone onscreen, and it's debateable as to whether they're actually ''happy'' to do so. The dark jokes aren't present in the original, [[CrossesTheLineTwice so this could be a case of the dub Death Eatering the sub.]]
** You could argue that the nations had developed a dark sense of humor in the GagDub as a coping mechanism to living hundreds of years through various wars and crises, which commonly happens in real life for people who have to be surrounded by death and sickness on a near-daily basis (such as doctors).

[[folder: Fan Works ]]

* One rather infamous example would be the Financial Crisis Gangbang, where someone on the Kink Meme requested a group of nations violently punishing America for causing another depression through his carelessness. The result was a fancomic in which America is [[FridgeLogic somehow]] restrained by duct tape and horrifically raped and humiliated by England, France, both Italies, Germany, China, Japan, Prussia, and Russia. While all of those characters have, in canon, had times where they were pissed with America, the whole thing is ''way'' over what any of them have ever done (not to mention that in canon, their attitudes over the economy screw-up ranges from being obviously distressed to blaming America for being young and stupid to insulting him). A few follow-up fics have the offending nations suffer the same treatment, with them feeling entirely justified in what they did and wondering why America isn't simply walking off the trauma of being gangraped by his friends and family.
* The doujinshi circle Hakka Pink is... a touchy subject in some parts of the USUK fandom due to their extremely unflattering portrayal of France. Yes, historically France ''did'' meddle in UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, but the ''Independence Sky'' series turn that "role" UpToEleven via making France pretty much into America's slutty and psychotic EvilMentor, ostensibly to make a PurityStu-fied England suffer.
* One of the biggest criticisms of the very polemic AllHeEverWanted is how it falls into this trope in regards to England, Japan, North Italy and '''specially''' Prussia, making the fic a very thinly-veiled AuthorTract full of WriterOnBoard rants put in the characters' mouths and actions:
** England: {{Tsundere}} former empire (canon) --> mentally-unstable MadOracle who supports the Axis and makes the world total shit because of it (AHEW verse)
** Japan: (PlayedForLaughs) YamatoNadeshiko who is good friends with England (canon) --> LawfulEvil ManipulativeBastard who dooms the world to chaos for keeping the Anglo-Japanese Alliance and only cares about England for his own benefit (AHEW verse)
** North Italy: TheDitz {{Keet}} (canon) --> PsychopathicManchild who [[spoiler: murders Greece]] and treats his ''fratello'' South Italy like shit [[spoiler: and makes him run away from home]] (AHEW verse)
** Prussia. HotBlooded ButtMonkey (canon) --> CardCarryingVillain who rapes female nations for either his own benefit or just for the lulz and tortures PossessionSue!Austria endlessly (AHEW verse)
* The famous and popular USUK doujinshii ''To the New World with Love'' subjects America to this treatment. Here he is portrayed as [[ChildrenAreInnocent a once innocent child nation]] who [[TookALevelInJerkass grows into]] [[DrunkWithPower a power-hungry]] [[{{Jerkass}} bastard]] who causes misery to the whole world as he expands his influence, opposite an England who's ''yet again'' made into a PurityStu who [[BreakTheCutie willingly subjects himself to horrible mental/emotional pain to "stop" him]] [[spoiler: including a more-than-a-century-long ThanatosGambit]]. We as readers are supposed to believe that America is an horrible asshole without any redeeming qualities [[LoveRedeems and who can only be redeemed through England's "pure and selfless" love]], and that [[PurityStu England]] is [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality flawlessly right]] instead of a mentally/emotionally unbalanced LoveMartyr.
* The Russia/America fic "The Chosen End" is also pretty well known for subjecting England, of all nations, to this, all to favor Russia and America getting together. It's not helped by how the author wrote a fic where England is a crazy {{Yandere}} who tortures a [[WimpifiCation wimpified, helpless]] America and sends him crying to [[DracoInLeatherPants Russia]].
