YMMV / Hetalia Bloodbath 2010

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Iceland with his adorably awkward moeness and bishounen-ness. The generous amount of Ship Tease with Turkey and Germany only serves to emphasize this further.
  • Epileptic Trees: Everyone's OTP is canon in an Alternate Universe.
    • Sealand beat the shadow, which nearly every other nation lost to.
    • The topic of nations being recognized as such by 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 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.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Workbitch Bartholomew for England’s assistant AKA Howard’s grandson.
      • As well as his brother, Assbitch, the random guy that checking out parallel!Spain's ass.
    • Epicstonia.
    • Many labels were applied to the mysterious shadow stalking the nations including Waldo!France, Robot!France, and Slender Man, among others.
  • Fountain of Memes
  • Fridge Brilliance: 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 had to go across the ocean and ended up accidentally missing most of his childhood. Alternatively, all of America's "Founding Fathers" have been dead for many years.
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: Just keeps rising as the event goes on and things keep getting more and more absurd and/or awesome.
  • Memetic Molester: The mysterious figure that is obviously France. He wasn't.
  • Narm Charm: Germany's face as he watches Prussia get taken away.
    • Cuba's declaration to Canada that nations are disappearing.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the fans' theories are pretty creepy. And the bloodbath itself literally gave some fans nightmares of Shadow!France attacking them.
  • Padding: Canada and Cuba's photo shoot.
  • Slow-Paced Beginning: 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.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: 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.
