Video Game: Dreamtalia

Dreamtalia is a RPG Maker VX fangame based on Axis Powers Hetalia and created by Kyokoon64 & Pianodream. (Click their names to head to their respective Deviantart accounts.) The "official" website containing all material related to the game can be found here.

The game will not be released for the public to play until the video episodes have finished, with each episode being released the 12th of every month onto Dreamtalia's YouTube. There is also a chat that Kyokoon64 would open up for fans to socialize a few hours prior to the premiere of the new episode. In January 2014, the game went on a 10 month hiatus, and as of March they have gone back on hiatus due to staff changes.

A playable demo of the game can be found here.

More information will be added at a later time as the game updates. Thus, most spoilers will be left unmarked.

This fangame provides examples of:

    open/close all folders 

  • An Ice Person: Devil. Russia also becomes one when the latter passes on his powers to him.
  • Bad Boss: According to Word of God, Reve physically abuses World, and threatens to use his intestines in its and Italy's pasta dinner. And that's when he's mildly annoyed.
    • He also beats up Devil for his failure to protect Temeperance. The next time we see him, he's severely weakened to the point that he only has enough energy left in him to pass on his powers to Russia before he dies.
  • Batter Up: America has a studded baseball bat in the dreamworld, a subtle Mythology Gag to his 2p!Nyotalia self.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Mused on in the opening, and the tagline of the game.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Your loved one may be kind to you in your dreams, but it might also be a trap.
  • Big "NO!": Finland when he sees the Factory burning and realises that his Christmas toy helpers are still inside.
  • Butterfly of Doom: A yellow butterfly can be seen flying in place early on in the dreamworld, and the heroes lampshade its appearance. According to Word of God, it represents the impending doom and death that may soon befall the Fauchereve's victims.
  • Chainsaw Good: World (an America in a Revolution uniform), a servant of the fauchereve, wields one.
  • Chest Monster: A lot of them are present in the game and are often used for grinding.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: Reve possesses these whenever he's masquerading as someone.
  • Creepy Doll: Present among the creepy toys in the Factory.
  • Dream Land: The major setting so far takes place within that of Italy's. It is also the place of introduction for the game's Big Bad, the Fauchereve.
  • Cutscene: Used for scripted long dialogue/action events. They are sometimes interactive when choices need to be made, which could potentially lead to a bad end.
  • Divided We Fall: If you choose to have Germany ignore England's claims of the supernatural during the meeting, everyone else will also ignore him and leave to find their own solution. This results in a bad ending, where the victims die and the remaining nations fall one by one to the Fauchereve.
  • Enemy Mine: The game takes place in the WW2 arc of the original webcomic/manga/anime, when the Axis and Allies were still enemies. However, due to the other nations falling victim to the fauchereve (starting with Italy), they forget their fight and immediately join forces to combat this new threat.
  • Face-Revealing Turn: The infamous "sOMetHinG wRoNG, CApTaiN?" scene.
  • Fearless Fool: Italy seems surprisingly okay with following instructions from a transparent reflection of Germany.
  • Final Speech: Hermit gives a rather long one to our heroes just before he dies.
  • Gotta Catch Them All: Japan is very interested in collecting all of the Arcana Major cards. Which belong to France, by the way.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: The Fauchereve's reason for wanting the kidnapped nations under his control.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Played straight. In order to help the brainwashed nations regain their true sense of self, you must battle them first.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Reve" for the Fauchereve. He introduces himself as such to the heroes, who also uses it to refer to him. It's much easier to say, to be honest, otherwise this page would get a bit repetitive.
  • I Want to Be a Real Man: World's reason for snapping.
  • Meaningful Name: "Fauchereve" means dream reaper in French.
  • Mirror Monster: The Fauchereve.
  • Mirror Scare: A reflection of Italy transforms into Shadow Italy when startled, frightening Germany and the audience.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: The Fauchereve in its original form sure does have a lot of big, pointy teeth. It's also another visual indicator that he's impersonating as someone.
  • Multiple Endings: The game is slated to have several. So far, two bad endings exist, with one of them being a Non Standard Game Over.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: According to Word of God, the Fauchereve/Shadow!Italy just wants friends. Unfortunately, those who stay asleep for too long under its influence get their souls detached from their bodies, which then gradually rot away.
  • Not So Extinct: According to England, fauchereves were largely thought to be extinct. Until now.
  • Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: So far the Fauchereve has mostly been seen caring to his friends and luring people into paradise, while the heroes accidentally kill off one of the dream inhabitants without much purpose and are tempted to walk away from a prisoner just to try to find Italy.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: The Fauchereve is a Type II. He just wants friends, but kidnapping and manipulating people into staying with him until they die is not the best way to go about it.
  • Put on a Bus: China becomes separated from the others by falling into and becoming trapped in a different ice cave, which makes him absent from the Temperance arc. He comes back at the end of it and is heavily implied to have a more important role in the next arc, in which he becomes manipulated by the Fauchereve.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: World's eyes turn red when he's called a pawn, a major Berserk Button for him.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Admittedly, the grammar and spelling is not perfect.
  • Running Gag: England falling down on his back and being unable to get up.
  • Secretly Dying:
    "It's likely this has all been happening for some time right under our noses."
  • Shout-Out: America references the Avengers and namedrops Resident Evil in his dialogue.
    • World quotes Team Rocket's motto while trying to stop the heroes. As does China/The Hanged Man before he battles our heroes.
    • Hermit's death speech has references to American McGee's Alice.
    • If you look at Japan's inventory, he has an oni mask and an onigiri. Their descriptions are a clear reference to Heta Oni.
    • In the shop area of Temperance's ice castle, there are references to other Hetalia fanworks, like Auf Wiedersehen Sweetheart and Regret.
  • Slasher Smile: The Fauchereve usually sports one.
    • Finland also has one while brainwashed into Chariot.
  • Snow Means Death: Hermit, a Japan doppelganger, dies in a snowy landscape early on in the game.
  • Tarot Motifs: Interestingly for this trope, their personalities don't always match up with the meaning of the tarot cards. That doesn't make it any less awesome, though.
    • The nations inhabiting the dream world represent cards in the Major Arcana. They may have originated from France's deck of tarot cards, which he mentions having been lost when he entered the dream world. When they die, they pass on their powers to their real-world selves. So far, only (in ascending order): World (America), Hermit (Japan), Devil (Russia), Moon (Korea) and have appeared.
    • The brainwashed nations, which are linked with their dream selves, also follow the Major Arcana. This list includes Chariot (Finland), Temperance (Canada) and China (The Hanged Man).
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: The fauchereve can take the form of people its victims admire, such as loved ones. However, those with enough willpower to see past the illusion can see its original form consumed in shadows.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Poor Moon. He seemed like a pretty cool guy after being defeated by our heroes, but then he gets killed in his next appearance.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: America kills Hermit because he couldn't comprehend why Hermit was afraid of him.
  • Whip It Good: Germany, as always.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Well, they did leave Finland back at the toy factory...
  • Your Days Are Numbered: The victims of the fauchereve only have a certain amount of time left before their mind disconnects with their body, killing them.
  • You Have Failed Me: The Fauchereve severely injuires Devil for failing to protect Temeperance.

    Dreamtalia: Chapter Zero 
  • Foregone Conclusion: Given that this is a prequel to Dreamtalia, it's pretty much inferred that Reve's previous victim did not survive the ordeal. Indeed, the very first scene has him mourning over Vanya's death.
  • Youthful Freckles: Reve sports these in his "human" form.
