* EnsembleDarkhorse: Iceland with his adorably awkward [[{{Moe}} moeness]] and [[{{Bishounen}} bishounen-ness.]] The generous amount of ShipTease with Turkey and Germany only serves to emphasize this further.
** It should be noted however that Iceland was somewhat already under this trope, having been a "bonus/new character" in the Hetalia movie and all.
** [[FanNickname Workbitch Bartholomew]] is gaining a lot of attention since he is England's SexySecretary and [[MrFanservice very good-looking]].
* EpilepticTrees: Everyone's [[OneTruePairing OTP]] is canon [[spoiler:in an AlternateUniverse]].
** [[spoiler:Sealand]] beat the shadow, which nearly every other nation lost to.
** The topic of nations being recognized as such by [[{{Muggles}} normal humans]] and exactly what abilities or unique traits that nations have, if any, has been touched on a couple times during the course of the event, but never directly addressed. A newscaster reports on the disappearance of 'those people' which seems to imply that this fact is [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight common knowledge]], at least to certain members of society.
*** Then again, the latter could also suggest that while a good deal of people may know of them as important figures of some sort, the real truth of their existence is kept a secret. Or alternately, the public ''is'' in on the whole story in some fashion but prefer not to talk about it much.
* FanNickname:
** Workbitch Bartholomew for England’s assistant AKA Howard’s grandson.
*** As well as his brother, Assbitch, the random guy that checking out [[spoiler:parallel!Spain]]'s ass.

** Many labels were applied to the mysterious shadow stalking the nations including Waldo!France, Robot!France, and Slender Man, among others.
* FountainOfMemes
* FridgeBrilliance: When America casually remarks that he's jealous of all of the little boys who get Christmas presents from their daddies. At first, this just seems like another childish remark from a very whimsical character. It takes a darker turn when you remember that America's only father figure in life [[http://aph.starry-sky.com/files/rkg4.gif had to go across the ocean]] [[DisappearedDad and ended up accidentally missing most of his childhood.]] Alternatively, all of America's "Founding Fathers" have been dead for many years.
* HolyShitQuotient: Just keeps rising as the event goes on and things keep getting more and more absurd and/or awesome.
* ItGetsBetter: During the live event, updates were slow and only provided snippets of progress in the storyline. It takes about four pages for the real action to ramp up.
* MemeticMolester: The mysterious figure [[strike: that is obviously France.]] [[spoiler: He wasn't.]]
* NarmCharm: Germany's face as he watches Prussia get taken away.
** Cuba's declaration to Canada that nations are disappearing.
---> '''EVERYONE'S GONE!!! THEY LEFT NO FLESH OR BLOOD THEY'VE JUST COMPLETELY VANISHED!!'''
* NightmareFuel: Some of the fans' theories are pretty creepy. And the bloodbath itself literally gave some fans nightmares of Shadow!France attacking them.
* {{Padding}}: [[ThoseTwoGuys Canada and Cuba]]'s photo shoot.
-->'''Cuba:''' [[LampshadeHanging What the hell are we doing!!]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Lampshaded towards the end where the Nations try to convince themselves that it was all just a dream. Or at least a ''very'' weird Christmas Day.
