"Mister... why don't you think about yourself a little more...?"

  • Big Brother Instinct: Seems relatively protective over the younger Asian countries, escorting Taiwan to the party and attempting to help Vietnam cover up in the 2013 Halloween event.
  • Big Little Brother: While his age is unclear, he's most likely younger than China... but he's still One Head Taller and probably the tallest of the Asians (as is his Nyotalia counterpart).
    • The Big Guy: Subverted, despite his height, his manner is too calm and collected to qualify.
  • Megane: Wealthy, kind and bespectacled.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Gets this treatment quite often in fanworks.
  • Nice Guy
    His nature is rather ungreedy; he appears calm and good at business, is tall, and tries to be philosophical (...) He often has a businesslike manner, but he jokes around with Portugal, China, and Hong Kong. He treats Taiwan like a proper lady.
    • Beware the Nice Ones:
      He seems to also have another side, another part, lol.
      • In strip, he is rather passive aggressive towards China when the latter asks for his help with keeping Hong Kong from wanting independence.
  • Non-Action Guy: In the Hetaween event, notes mention that he tends to get pulled into conflicts and get hurt.
  • Only Sane Man: China and Hong Kong have a fight caused by China going the Meddling Parents way and Hong Kong struggling to make him back off. What does Macau do? Sits with them, drinks tea, and makes one or two passive-aggressive comments as much.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Smiles pleasantly while his siblings fight.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Wears a cheongsam here. While said cheongsam is black in some Himaruya chibis, sometimes fandom also makes it white or green.
    He often wears smart-looking suits to casinos and in business-related things.
  • Smart Ball: Referred to as being skillful and good at making things.
  • Spot of Tea: He's shown with a tea cup quite often and drinks it while listening to his siblings fighting.
  • Supreme Chef: According to a profile of his, cooking is a specialty of his.
  • Team Dad: Seems to be one to Hong Kong and the other Chinese prefectures. And occasionally acts this way towards China.
  • The Cameo: In the Hetalia Bloodbath 2010, first. Then he reappears in the fourth manga volume.
  • The Gambler: Any wonder?
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome: Described as such.
