[[folder: ''Brutal'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Alf Meric:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Not exactly the "hero" from ''Hetalia''.
* {{Arch Enemy}}: Of Thew.
* {{Attention Whore}}: Obnoxiously so.
* {{Big Eater}}: He goes through several days' rations for the entire Career pack quite efficiently on his own.
* {{Blond Guys are Evil}}: Or, Very Light Brunette Guys are Evil.
* {{Boisterous Bruiser}}: Loud and as eager for a fight as any other Career.
* {{The Brute}}: In ''Brutal'''s career group.
* {{Dumb Muscle}}: One chapter title is "Conclusion: Alf's Still an Idiot."
* {{Eagleland}}: Type 2, full-stop.
* {{Evil Counterpart}}: To Thew.
* {{Evil Gloating}}: "I bet I could kill this guy with one punch to the head."
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: His fight with Japan, though the latter is noticeably more sympathetic.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: In his intro chapter, he says he has a rocky relationship with his father after his parents' divorce caused his dad to drift away from him. This leads to [[spoiler: his death]], as he deliberately volunteers to annoy the old man.
* {{Glory Hound}}: Differs from {{Glory Seeker}}s Lude and Japan in that he employs no discipline, restraint, or honour in his quest for recognition.
* {{Heroic Wannabe}} Motivated by a desire to be his district's hero, though not in the traditional sense of the word.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Although he is tagged as the main character from the ''Hetalia'' part of the crossover.
* {{Jerkass}}: Comes with the loud-and-selfish bit.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: He's killed off for real.]]
* {{Large Ham}}: "And then, I can be the hero!"
** One of the author's sketches actually shows him reciting the large ham line.
* {{Neck Snap}}: Kills [[spoiler: Franse]] this way.
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}: Kills [[spoiler: Wynd]] this way.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Spends most of his time after the bloodbath being a failure. Then [[spoiler: Japan underestimates him and is forced into a {{Better to Die than Be Killed}} situation. Subverted, in that Alf is killed as well in the attempt.]]
* {{Obfuscating Stupidity}}: At one point, Lude begins to suspect that his entire ghost paranoia is an act designed to fool and manipulate the others. In reality, he's overthinking things - Alf's really that stupid.
* [[spoiler: {{Off With His Head}}: Japan cuts off his head after killing him.]]
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Vivi gives one to him, detailing why he isn't worthy to be in the Career pack.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to Thew.
* {{Small Name Big Ego}}: Egotastic, from a family of no particular repute [[spoiler: that's certainly not given any more because of his Games.]]
* {{Unskilled but Strong}}: Goes for the kill with his bare hands.
* {{Villainous Glutton}}: A notorious BigEater and TheBrute.
* {{Villains Want Mercy}}: Begs with Thew, who he thinks is a ghost, not to kill him.
* {{Well Done Son Guy}}: Inverted. Rather than trying to win his father's respect, he deliberately volunteers for the Games in order to tick him off.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Wynd]] at the bloodbath.
* {{Why Did It Have to be Snakes}}: He has a crippling fear of ghosts, which Thew exploits in a {{Crowning Moment of Funny}}.

!!Lude Ermany:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Germany's not exactly the bad guy of ''Hetalia''.
* {{All Work vs All Play}}: The All Work to Ciano's All Play in the 4th What If.
* {{Anti Villain}}: Type I. He has no qualms with being a Career, but has a softer side as seen with his interactions with Ciano (especially in the 4th What If) and [[spoiler: a dying Japan]].
* [[spoiler: {{Apologetic Attacker}}: [[{{Tearjerker}} "Goodbye, friend."]] ]]
* {{Big Bad}}: serves as this for the Brutal career pack.
* {{Blond Guys are Evil}}: Has light blonde hair and no qualms about killing.
* {{Conflicting Loyalties}}: Between Ciano and the Career pack. Exploited by Japan when [[spoiler: he makes him kill Ciano]].
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: Ciano]] serves as this to him in [[spoiler: the fourth What If.]]
* {{Dirty Business}}: How he sees [[spoiler: having to kill Ciano]], although he doesn't regret it afterwards so much as before and as he does it.
* {{Epic Flail}}: His signature weapon is a morningstar: a big, spiky ball on a chain.
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: His battle with [[spoiler: Russia (though more Evil versus {{Obliviously Evil}}.)]]
* {{Germanic Depressives}}/{{Germanic Efficiency}}: Will not put up with slackery, and is a version of Germany.
* {{Glory Seeker}}: He is a Career, after all.
* {{Heel Face Door Slam}}: In the fourth What If.
* {{Heel Realization}}: Starts to have one in the fourth What If.
* {{If Youre So Evil Eat this Kitten}}: The Career pack tests him this way with Ciano. [[spoiler: He passes.]]
* [[spoiler: {{It Has Been an Honor}}: Says this to the dying Japan.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: He dies at Russia's hands.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Merciful Minion}}]]: twice in the fourth What If.
* {{Odd Friendship}}: With Ciano.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: In the Career back, along with Japan.
* {{Perpetual Frowner}}: Given his teammates, not that surprising.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: Several times: when he tolerates Ciano's antics in training, when he [[spoiler: hesitates to kill him]], and when he assures [[spoiler: a dying Japan that {{It Has Been an Honor}}]]. The Fourth What If, of course, is all about this.
* {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}: Trained [[WordofGod from birth]] to be a Career.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}} Blue Oni to Ciano.
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: Is the latter in his ''What If'' alliance with Ciano, though he ends up as {{Not So Stoic}}.
* {{The Stoic}}: His emotions are neutral and angry.
* {{Not So Stoic}}: In the fourth What If.
* {{Sugar and Ice Personality}}: Only displays his softer side to Ciano and, at one point, Japan.
* {{Villainous BSOD}}: Starts losing it in the fourth What If once his empathy for Ciano causes him to view his competitors in a different light.
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type I just hinted at between him and Japan.
* {{Villainous Valor}}: Displays courage and ingenuity in battle, particularly against the fire crickets. Averted in [[spoiler: his final battle, when he's too cold to fight back against Russia]].
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Tiee]] at the bloodbath and [[spoiler: Liet]] in the fourth What If.

!!Thew Canda:

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}: Switz throws him to the wolves, thinking he's dead. He's not.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Bespectacled and shy.
* {{And Then What}}: Realizes he has no idea what to do after scaring Alf with his ghost plan.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}/{{Beware the Quiet Ones}}: Quiet, inconspicuous, and will not hesitate to poison your water source. If you're a Career, of course.
* {{Brains and Brawn}}: Brains to Gil's brawn in the 2nd What If.
* {{Buttmonkey}}: He certainly doesn't go through the Games easily.
* {{Canada Eh}}: Fulfills many Canadian stereotypes, being polite, unassuming, and overshadowed by America (Alf). Lampshaded when he describes his headache as feeling like he's been hit in the head with a hockey puck.
* {{Cloudcuckoolanders Minder}}: Pity poor Thew when he's allied with Ciano.
* {{Corrupt the Cutie}}: One could look at his unrepentant killing of [[spoiler: Careers]] in this way.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Subverted. Being eaten alive by wolves can't be the most pleasant way to go ... but it helps that he was unconscious the whole time.]]
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Internally.
* [[spoiler: {{Death Faked For You}}: A series of extraordinary coincidences leads to almost everyone believing he's been killed. Unfortunately, this doesn't last long.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Death by Irony}}: Killed offhandedly after working to make himself memorable; not to mention that an inconvenient cannon firing led to his death while a convenient cannon firing saved his life earlier.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Disney Death}}: A cannon fires just as Alf knocks him out, tricking the Careers (not to mention the viewers) into believing he's dead.]]
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Is certainly not an action guy.
* {{The Dog Bites Back}}: How else to describe his hilarious revenge on Alf?
* [[spoiler: {{Dropped a Bridge on Him}}: Dies very suddenly.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Eaten Alive}}]]: Mercifully, he's unconscious as the time.
* {{He Who Fights Monsters}}: Could be seen as this. He says he hates Careers for the suffering they inflict, but regrets [[spoiler: not being able to kill Alf himself]], and takes pride in bringing death to someone who 'deserves' it. Though to be fair, that someone was a borderline psychopath.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: He dies via wolf pack.]]
* {{Knight Templar}}: Could be seen as a mild version of this with {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}.
* [[spoiler: {{Murder by Mistake}}: Intended to poison Alf, but ended up taking out Vivi instead.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: Even if you subscribe to his {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}, he's still a prime example of this at first.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: His kill certainly has nothing to do with his physique.
* {{Not So Different}}: With a bit of {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}, he can be seen as this to Alf. Although Thew despises Alf for his remorseless killing of others, he himself does the same thing to Careers.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: When he interacts with Ciano and Alf, this isn't hard to achieve.
* {{Pay Evil Unto Evil}}: His justification for [[spoiler: killing Vivi]].
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}} Blue Oni to both Alf and Ciano.
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: Has this dynamic in his alliance with Gil, as well as when compared/contrasted with Alf. He is the Sensitive Guy.
* {{Shrinking Violet}}: He apparently can't ask a girl out without panicking and running away.
* {{Took a Level in Badass}}: When he [[spoiler: poisons the Careers' water supply]].
* {{Villain Corner}}: Starts edging into it after [[spoiler: killing Vivi]], not that he realizes it.
* {{Weak but Skilled}}: Physically weak, but cunning enough to take down a Career and good enough at going unnoticed to make it all the way to [[spoiler: fifth place]].
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: What's that you want, Thew? Recognition? Well, we'll just have to [[spoiler: kill you off in the most offhanded and unceremonious way possible]], then, won't we?

!!Japan Hond:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: One of the protagonists from ''Hetalia''.
* {{Anti Villain}}: Type I. Lives for the glory he gets from killing, but isn't an overall cruel person in his day-to-day behavior, and places greater emphasis on honouring his district's name than taking lives.
* [[spoiler: {{Better to Die than Be Killed}}: Chooses to stab both himself and Alf rather than be strangled to death or rescued.]]
* {{Brainy Brunette}}: Both intelligent and black-haired.
* {{The Dragon}}: To {{Big Bad}} Lude in the ''Brutal'' Career pack.
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: His fight with Alf, though he is noticeably more sympathetic than his opponent.
* [[spoiler: {{Face Death with Dignity}}: Takes his own life to do so.]]
* {{Glass Cannon}}: Insanely fast and skilled in swordplay, but admits in his intro chapter that his defence capabilities are minimal, as he's not as muscular as the average Career.
* {{Glory Seeker}}: Honour is his number one priority.
* [[spoiler: {{Go Out With a Smile}}: He's quite happy when Lude says it's been an honour to fight with him.]]
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: A defining trait of his. Most notable when [[spoiler: Alf has him in a stranglehold and he chooses to kill himself rather than face the shame of being rescued by Lude]].
* {{Inscrutable Oriental}}: Doesn't have many facial expressions.
* {{Japanese Politeness}}: In contrast to the rest of the Careers, he rarely has a harsh word for anyone, even "trying not to sound condescending" when dealing with Alf's stupidity. He also "briefly apologizes" for not handing out water earlier in the 4th What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By his own sword.]]
* {{Master Swordsman}}: His WeaponOfChoice is a katana.
* {{Ninja}}: His stealth and agility are certainly reminiscent of one; not to mention this was his angle at the interviews.
* {{Off With His Head}}: Specializes in killing this way.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Along with Lude.
* {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}: Very caught up in the Career system.
* {{The Quiet One}}: Definitely the least outspoken of the ''Brutal'' Careers, though that's not exactly saying much.
* [[spoiler: {{Taking You With Me}}: Rather than allow Alf to strangle him to death, he plunges his sword through his own heart – "and the heart behind it."]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't do much smiling or yelling.
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type I just hinted at between him and Lude.
* {{Villainous Valor}}: Would do anything for the honour of his family.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Decapitates [[spoiler: Ukraine]], when she's completely unaware and (relatively) defenceless, no less.

!!Franse Bonnefoy:

* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Poor guy.
* BadassBystander: Actually takes action at the bloodbath.
* {{Casanova Wannabe}}: He doesn't gain much ground in his pre-Games flirting.
* {{Chivalrous Pervert}}: Despite his constant flirting, he actually does seem to care about the people he's wooing, to the point of [[spoiler: dying for one of them]].
* {{Handsome Lech}}: Flirts but is described as attractive.
* [[spoiler: {{Heroic Sacrifice}}: Dies trying to buy Wynd some time to escape. Unfortunately, it doesn't work, making this a...]]
** [[spoiler: {{Senseless Sacrifice}}]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: At Alf's hands.]]
* {{Long Haired Pretty Boy}}: Lampshaded when Maria mocks his 'girl hair.'
* [[spoiler: {{Neck Snap}}: Courtesy of Alf.]]
* {{Prince Charming Wannabe}}: Flirts with almost all the female tributes in his intro chapter. Their reactions range from mildly flattered to disinterested to completely livid.
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: The first ''Hetalia'' character to die.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: Doesn't get much screentime before he dies.]]

!!Ciano Idalya:

* {{Adorkable}}: Completely at odds with social conventionalities, yet adorable in spite (or because) of it.
* {{Aint Too Proud to Beg}}: Type 2; he pleads for his life when the Careers have him cornered. Rather than {{Moral Dissonance}}, it's a {{Tearjerker}}.
* {{All Work vs All Play}}: The All Play to Lude's All Work in the 4th What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Cutie}}: In the moments before his death, which of course means...]]
** [[spoiler: {{Kill the Cutie}}]]
* {{Cheerful Child}}: Is described as acting like a five-year-old.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: BIG TIME. After all, what else is there to do in the Hunger Games than sit down with a nice bowl of pasta?
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Engulfed and burned alive by a swarm of red-hot crickets in the fourth What If.]]
* CynicismCatalyst: serves as this to [[spoiler: Lude]] in [[spoiler: the fourth What If. Their friendship and his violent death causes Lude to question the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy strict]] [[LoveIsAWeakness values]] he's believed in all his life.]]
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Doesn't have much strength.
* {{Dude Looks Like a Lady}}: his stylists originally thought they had been given the District 6 girl instead of the boy!
* [[spoiler: {{Forgotten Fallen Friend}}: One of the few examples in the series to be played straight. Apart from in the fourth what if, Lude never dwells on killing him after the deed is done. Thew mourns briefly when seeing his face in the sky, but isn't too troubled afterwards.]]
* {{Fragile Speedster}}: Not strong, yet flees like crazy.
* {{Horrible Judge of Character}}: Yes, let's go make friends with the all-business tribute trained to kill you.
* {{Keet}}: Cheerful despite being in the Hunger games.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: At Lude's hands.]]
* {{The Load}}: To everyone he's allied with.
* {{Lovable Coward}}: Flees from everything... adorably.
* {{Dirty Coward}}: YMMV, but some reviewers definitely thought so when he left Thew behind while running from Careers. Though, to his credit, he thought Thew was behind him the entire time.
* {{Morality Pet}}/{{Morality Chain}}: To Lude.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: Not the strong type.
* {{Odd Friendship}}: With Lude.
* {{Picky Eater}}: Refuses to eat cooked snake when he can request pasta.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: Is in the Hunger Games but stays perky.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to both Thew and Lude.
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lion}}: Dies later on in the story.]]
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: The Sensitive Guy to Lude in the fourth What If.
* {{Skewed Priorities}}: Seems more concerned with only getting risotto for breakfast than with staying alive.
* [[spoiler: {{Slashed Throat}}: Dies this way.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Spared by Adaptation}}: For a while in the fourth What If.]]
* {{Tears of Fear}}: When captured by the Careers.
* [[spoiler: {{Too Happy to Live}}: Always cheerful, until just before his death.]]
* {{Too Dumb to Live}}: Relies on his mentor to send him pasta rather than eating the food Thew picked out.
* {{Trademark Favorite Food}}: Pasta!
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: The fourth What If is built around this. [[spoiler: He is spared from an early death ... only to receive one far more horrific.]]

[[folder: ''Brutal'' Males, District 7 - 12]]

!!Switz Wingly

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}]]: throws an unconscious [[spoiler: Thew]] to a pursuing wolf pack, thinking [[spoiler: he]] is dead, in order to buy him and Liet some time.
* {{Badass}}: he can and will go through hell to protect his beloved sister.
** {{Badass in Distress}}: when the exhaustion and hunger of sacrificing his meals for Liet begin to take their toll on him.
* BerserkButton: threatening his sister, leaving his alliance, reappearing after you leave his alliance, looking like you might want to threaten his sister…
* BigBrotherInstinct: towards Liet.
* CoolBigBro: towards Liet.
* DeadpanSnarker: at times, such as after being told he could not volunteer as a male tribute had already been selected:
--> "Well, if you’d rather dress me up in drag and pass me off for a female tribute, try that.”
* DeclarationOfProtection: towards Liet.
* [[spoiler: EatenAlive / CruelAndUnusualDeath / EverythingsWorseWithWolves]]: in the second and fourth What Ifs. [[spoiler: Unlike Thew in the main storyline, he’s not given the mercy of being unconscious during it.]]
* EtTuBrute?: acts as if Austria’s flight from the alliance was a great betrayal.
* EyeScream: gouges an alligator’s eyes with scissors to make it let go of Liet’s leg.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: throughout the entire story, he is calmly accepting of his death so long as it means Liet’s survival.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile]]: gives Liet one last smile after [[spoiler: TakingtheBullet for her.]]
* TheHero / TheBigGuy: in his alliance with Liet and Austria.
* HeroicResolve: near the end of the story he is almost too weakened to move, but when [[spoiler: Russia is about to kill Liet,]] he finds the energy to [[spoiler: push her out of the way and take the bullet himself.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: basically everything he does, [[spoiler: including his final fate.]]
* HurtingHero: accepts the burdens of injury and starvation to keep his sister alive and puts on a smile so she won't see the toll she's taking on him.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: At the hands of Russia.]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: was entirely willing to kill Austria and Veta just for encountering their alliance, all to protect Liet. Justified, as they’re in a kill-or-be-killed situation and she’s more or less defenceless.
* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Austria and Liet.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion: One of the last tributes to die.]]
* SelfSacrificeScheme: plans to kill himself so that Liet can win the Games.
* [[spoiler: SenselessSacrifice]]: he [[spoiler: Takes the Bullet for Liet near the end of the Games, but this leaves her without a protector against an advancing Russia.]] Justified in that [[spoiler: he probably wasn’t thinking clearly and it’s really all he could do in the moment.]]
* TriggerHappy: with his bow and arrows.
* WhatTheHellCostumingDepartment: doesn’t think much of being dressed up in high heels and a too-tight suit during the interviews.

!!Austria Edel:

* BrainyBrunette: His one sellable trait is knowing edible plants.
* ChastityCouple: even after [[spoiler: being 'married' to Veta,]] though justified because they're on national television.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] contributes greatly to [[spoiler: Veta's BrokenBird status in the epilogue.]]
* DistressedDude: Veta has a history of finishing fights for him.
* ElegantClassicalMusician: While a broke orphan, he's at his best playing piano.
* EtTuBrute: Switz acts as though his flight from their alliance was a great betrayal.
* FriendlessBackground: he states that, apart from Veta and the music store owner, he has no loved ones to visit him after his reaping.
* GoThroughMe: places himself between Switz and Veta at one point during a tense standoff, when the former is threatening to shoot.
* [[spoiler: HappilyMarried]]: with Veta, [[spoiler: for about a day]].
* HeartwarmingOrphan: in backstory; he was raised in an orphanage but found a father-figure of sorts in the music store owner who nurtured his skill at the piano.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: At Gil's hands.]]
* TheLancer / TheSmartGuy: in the alliance with Switz and Liet.
* TheLoad: to both Switz and Veta.
* LoveHurts: especially when you're reaped alongside your fiancee.
* [[spoiler: LoveCannotOvercome]]: [[spoiler: he dies and Veta lives on alone and heartbroken.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: he has shades of this with Veta. She's brash, determined and a good fighter, while he's refined, artistic and poor at combat.
* {{Megane}}: Picked up glasses from the street at some point.
* [[spoiler: MyOwnPrivateIDo]]: with Veta.
* NonActionGuy: Not a fighter.
* OfficialCouple: with Veta.
* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Switz and Liet.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat]]: [[spoiler: dies this way.]]
* SoHappyTogether: his and Veta's [[spoiler: makeshift wedding]] and the scene where they warm their hands over the fire together serve as this for the couple.
* StarCrossedLovers: with Veta.
* StoicSpectacles: Has glasses and doesn't tend to express much emotion.
* [[spoiler: TogetherInDeath]]: with Veta [[spoiler: in the second What If.]]
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: to Veta, until everything goes horribly wrong.
* [[spoiler: WartimeWedding]]: he and Veta are [[spoiler: married halfway through the Games]].

!!Russia Bragins:

* ActualPacifist: At first. In backstory, he refused to lift a finger against Vahn even when being beaten up, and Toris notes that he was reluctant to go to combat stations in training.
* AntiVillain: Type II; it's clear that he's been mentally destroyed by [[spoiler: his sister's death]].
* AxCrazy: After his FaceHeelTurn.
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: He is the Victor of the second and fourth What Ifs.]]
* BerserkButton: He really [[IncrediblyLamePun lost his head]] when [[spoiler: his sister Ukraine was decapitated.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's stuck between this and BitchInSheepsClothing.
* BigBad: Arguably the closest thing ''Brutal'' has to one.
* BigLittleBrother: stated to be taller than all the tributes, presumably including his elder sister Ukraine.
* BloodKnight: After his FaceHeelTurn.
* BreakTheCutie / CorruptTheCutie: As happens to most cuties in the series.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: An extremely dark version.
* CurbStompBattle: vs. [[spoiler: Lude]]. Justified, as he's accustomed to the cold of the crater while [[spoiler: the career]] isn't.
* CuteAndPsycho: Stays cheerful while dreaming of cutting up people.
* CynicismCatalyst: subverted. It seems that [[spoiler: Ukraine's death]] will be this for him, and while it does turn him into a far darker character, his resulting persona is [[StepfordSmiler far less]] [[PutTheLaughterInSlaughter cynical]] than a straight example.
* [[spoiler: DeathEqualsEmotion / DyingAsYourself: Arguable, as his last thoughts were for the sister he'd barely remembered after her death.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Passes over it in a matter of sentences after [[spoiler: his sister dies.]]
* EatTheDog: He kills and eats a cute pony muttation. Justified, as this is the Hunger Games.
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Slicing children to ribbons is ''fun''!
* FaceHeelTurn: After [[spoiler: Ukraine's death]].
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: Seems innocent enough from the outside, apart from that giant knife...
* FreudianExcuse: Has a history of being bullied.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He refused to go to any battle stations before the Games but ends up [[spoiler: getting to second place]].
* [[spoiler: Go Out With a Smile: Although not stated, it's quite likely, given the nature of his last thoughts.]]
* HypocriticalHumor: "I guess she's kind of crazy, then!"
* IgnoredEpiphany: He briefly wonders whether he's just as bad as the people who killed his sister, but quickly dismisses this idea as ridiculous.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: He wouldn't hurt a fly until after he snaps.
* InsaneTrollLogic: His mind seems to run on this after he snaps. For instance, he justifies [[spoiler: killing Toris because "the Games are better off without his pessimism,"]] and dismisses the idea of being NotSoDifferent from a Career because "nobody cries over the people [he's] killed." The fact that his victims have families who are undoubtedly crying at the moment never seems to occur to him.
* KarmaHoudini: The second and fourth What Ifs.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: by Veta.]]
* LaughingMad / GigglingVillain: Or at least Cheerfully Humming Villian.
* LunaticLoophole: Averted in the core series, but [[spoiler: played straight in the fourth What If.]]
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Eager to slice and dice.
* NotSoDifferent: see Ignored Epiphany.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Never considers how much he's hurting people.
* PowerBornOfMadness: Not a threat until after he snaps.
* PsychopathicManchild: Keeps his innocent optimism despite running about looking for victims.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: Out to kill with a big smile.
* RussianGuySuffersMost: Certainly psychologically.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: was given to him by his sister.
* [[spoiler: SoleSurvivor: Of the second and fourth What Ifs.]] A scrapped epilogue to these, which eventually ended up as the arguable tie-in "Asylum", ended up in him being thrown into, what else, an asylum.
* [[spoiler: SparedByAdaptation: Twice!]]
* StepfordSmiler: Type C.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Never did anything against other tributes or bullies before.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: After [[spoiler: his sister is killed]], he's out to kill everyone.
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler: Kills Liet and attempts to kill Veta.]]

!!Gil Prus:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Certainly not an outright villain in ''Hetalia''.
* {{Asshole Victim}}: Not even Veta feels much remorse over what she does to him.
* {{Attention Whore}}: Really likes to be in the spotlight.
* {{Blood Knight}}: Relishes the opportunity to kill his opponents. He even showed himself to a Career just so he could start a fight!
* {{Brains and Brawn}}:Brawn to Thew's brains in the 2nd What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Has his skull repeatedly smashed open with a frying pan. To make matters worse, it's specifially stated he was alive for nearly all of it.]]
* {{Egomaniac Hunter}}: A complete egotist who [[{{Hunting the Most Dangerous Game}} Hunts the Most Dangerous Game]]. To be fair, it (most likely) wasn't his choice to be thrown into a game of life and death, but he still relishes in the opportunity to hunt and kill his fellow human beings.
* EvilAlbino: can be taken as such, because of [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy Prussia's]] appearance in AxisPowersHetalia.
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: When he takes on Corianne.
* {{Hot Blooded}}: Goes out of his way to spark a battle with a Career.
* {{Its All About Me}}: One of the more arrogant tributes, to say the least.
* {{Jerkass}}: See below.
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: Completely remorseless for any of his murders; not to mention that his reaction upon finding his younger districtmate has asthma was that she'd be even easier to kill.
* {{Laughably Evil}}: While it doesn't detract from his villainy in any way, his over-the-top arrogance often makes him comical.
* {{The Fighting Narcissist}}: But with less focus on his looks than most examples of the trope.
* {{For the Evulz}}: See Kick the Dog.
* {{Glory Hound}}: Goes naturally with his self-centred attitude.
* {{Kick the Dog}}: In the second What If, after killing [[spoiler: Veta and Austria]], he kicks the latter's body for no reason other than simple malice.
* {{Kick Them While They Are Down}}: The aforementioned Kick the Dog.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Veta.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way at Veta's hands.]]
* {{Non Human Sidekick}}: His eagle mutt, 'Gil-bird,' in the second What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Rasputinian Death}}: His skull is coming apart in pieces before his cannon fires.]]
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: Has this dynamic in his alliance with Thew. He's the Manly Man.
* {{Small Name Big Ego}}: Someone from a non-Career district still vying for the sponsors and the kills.
* {{The Sociopath}}: See Lack of Empathy.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Corianne]], as well as [[spoiler: Veta]] in ''What If''.

!!Philan Visce:

* BlackBestFriend: to Philan.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Chia.]]
* {{Like Brother and Sister}}: His friendship with Peyton is depicted this way in one of Number One Fan of Journey's comedic fanarts, with Peyton stressing that they're not romantically involved.
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: See Taking You With Me.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt / {{Sacrificial Lamb}} / WeHardlyKnewYe]]
* [[spoiler: {{Taking You With Me}}: He dies at the bloodbath, but not without taking his killer, Chia, with him.]]
* TokenMinority: One of the few black characters in the series, along with Cuba, Shaye and Egypt.
* {{True Companions}}: Has an extremely close bond with his district partner/friend Peyton, whom he considers to be his 'twin' as they were born on the same day.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: To be fair, she had just [[spoiler: mortally wounded him]].

!!Toris Lithu:

* {{All Work vs All Play}}: The All Work to Poal's All Play.
* {{Brainy Brunette}}: He has brown-haired and is said by Poal to be one of the smartest tributes in the field.
* CloudCuckooLandersMinder: tries (with limited success) to keep Poal out of trouble.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Comes naturally from exasperation with Poal.
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Does more running than fighting.
* {{Doomed by Canon}}: In The Hunger Games, District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so it's certain from the start that he's going to die.
* TheEeyore: has a very pessimistic outlook on life.
* {{Killed Off for Real}}: [[spoiler: By Russia.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: Doesn't seem to accept killing others as an option, and stays with Poal.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: See Distressed Dude.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Especially when contrasted with his hyperactive ally, Poal.
* {{The Philosopher}}: Spends much of his intro chapter debating whether it's better to die in front of the entire nation in the Hunger Games or waste away in the mines with your name lost to history. If Poal is to be believed, he goes into these phases a lot.
* {{Properly Paranoid}}: Unlike Poal, he actually realizes that everything in the Games is out to kill him.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}} Blue Oni to Poal.
* {{Sacrificial Lion}}: although he's not terribly important, [[spoiler: his death]] has a powerful impact on the plot because it shows that [[spoiler: Russia has crossed the MoralEventHorizon.]]
* {{Savvy Guy Energetic Girl}}: Fits this trope to a T with Poal.
* [[spoiler: {{Slashed Throat}}: Dies this way.]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't have many emotional highs or lows.

[[folder: ''Brutal'' Females, District 1 - 6]]

!!Vivi Daley:

* {{Action Girl}}: Comes with Career territory.
** {{Dark Action Girl}}: See above.
* {{Ax Crazy}}: Takes delight in the bloodshed of the Games, [[spoiler: going so far as to shove a sickle into her own throat because she thought her impending death by poison wasn't violent enough]].
* {{Blood Knight}}: Is actually rather obsessed with blood in particular.
* {{Dark Chick}}: In the Career alliance.
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Type II.
* {{Informed Ability}}: Can slash over into the {{Know Nothing Know It All}} territory. Vivi keeps on saying that she's intelligent, but we see no evidence for that. In fact, she essentially [[spoiler: commits suicide]] from her own arrogant unwillingness to trust.
* {{Kick The Dog}}: Torturing [[spoiler: Peyton]] and mutilating her corpse.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: By Thew's poison.]]
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: She's unhinged, so of course she doesn't.
* {{Meaningful Name}}: Guess which of our favorite fanfiction writers she's based on? Even better yet, she comes of the Capitol Games fame. Mhm, yes, you got that right; ladies, gentlemen- give it up for miss Vividly Visceral!
* {{More Deadly Than The Male}}: She's certainly more savage and bloodthirsty when it comes to kills. Partially subverted as she herself points out that even though she's well-versed in weapons, she couldn't take on her District partner Alf since he's so well-built.
* {{Nightmare Fetishist}}: She views slaughter somewhat romantically.
* {{Pummeling The Corpse}}: Does this to [[spoiler: Peyton's]] corpse.
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Gives one to Alf, describing why he isn't worthy to be a Career.
* [[spoiler: {{Undignified Death}}: Getting a death sentence by drinking from a canteen of water that was poisoned by Thew that Alf was freaking out about. Tries to avert this by cutting open her own throat as she thought that it wasn't a gory enough death for her.]]
* {{Weak But Skilled}}: She's not weak, per se, but she's just fifteen and is on the smaller side when it comes to the usual Career fare. Her partner Alf is much stronger than her, and she said that her intelligence will help her, so she's really essentially this in the Career pack.
* {{Write Who You Know}}: Anybody know Vividly Visceral? Yeah, that's right. Vivi Daley's based on her. It now makes a whole lot of sense in perspective.

!!Corianne File:

* {{Action Girl}}: Definitely one of the fighters.
** {{Dark Action Girl}}: Not a nice fighter, either.
* {{An Axe to Grind}}: Uses a halberd, a Medieval axe.
* {{Even Evil Has Loved Ones}}: [[spoiler: We later find out in ''Horrible'' that she was good friends with Dardana.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: By Gil.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}: Gives one to [[spoiler: Maria]].
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type IV with Dardana, eventually growing into Type I.

!!Maria Carriedo:

* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: This to Franse when he attempts to hit on her during Training.
* [[spoiler: ForgottenFallenFriend]]: Thew remembers her once, but never thinks of her again after that.
* [[spoiler: {{Go Out with a Smile}}: She's so relieved that she managed to get out her {{Last Words}} that she manages to smile]].
* [[spoiler: {{Last Words}}: A goodbye to her family; she said that she loved them and they shouldn't get depressed over her death ]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Corianne.]]
* [[spoiler: {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}: On the receiving end of one from Corianne.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Doesn't play into the plot even in alternate endings.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: We hardly got to know her before she was killed.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}} See above.]]

!!Chia Mendel:

* {{Food Porn}}: Describes all the delectable courses she's served on the train.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: She just wanted to be normal...
* {{I Just Want to Be Normal}}: She only wants to be normal and not want to be a great Career like her parents always bothered about.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: By Philan.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: Philan and her take each other out in the Bloodbath]].
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: Dies early on.]]

!!Wynd Blune:

* [[spoiler: {{Distressed Damsel}}: Is this, and Franse goes and does a {{Senseless Sacrifice}} to try to buy her time and save her during the Bloodbath. ]]
* NiceGirl: A little weird, but nice enough.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Alf.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Means nothing in the grand scheme of the story.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: Little characterisation, little screentime.]]
* {{UST}}: A bit with {{Casanova Wannabe}} Franse. He just keeps on flirting with other girls while she watches, a bit bitter.
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: Dies before leaving the bloodbath.]]

!!Tiee Bongiovi:

* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: by Lude.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: All she does is die.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: See above.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: First death, no less. ]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Brutal'' Females, District 7 - 12]]

!!Liet Wingly:

* {{Children are Innocent}}: The youngest tribute and the most innocent.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}]]: At the hands of Lude in [[spoiler: the fourth What If.]]
* {{Damsel in Distress}}: Justified, as she's only twelve years old in an arena full of deadly competitors.
* {{Dying Alone}}: Averted at the last moment in backstory. Turned away from an orphanage because she was not old enough to accept tesserae, Liet was close to dying on the streets when Switz took her in.
* {{Go Through Me}}: Tries to defend Switz this way.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: one of the most innocent characters in the series, she's presumably blonde just like her AxisPowersHetalia counterpart.
* HappilyAdopted: Although technically she wasn't adopted until Switz hit eighteen.
* {{Heartwarming Orphan}}: Ridiculously sweet, even soon after her parents' death.
* [[spoiler: {{Heroic Sacrifice}}]]: Took several blows from [[spoiler: Russia's blade]] to shield her brother. [[spoiler: Regrettably, it doesn't do much good, as they are both killed soon after.]]
* {{I Owe You My Life}}: Realizes how much she owes Switz partway through ''Brutal'', and spends the rest of the fic trying to repay him.
* [[spoiler: {{Kill the Cutie}}: Dies late in the story.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Russia's hands.]]
* {{Little Miss Badass}}: In the second What If, the way she climbed a tree, jumped Russia, and managed to land some blows with her bow and arrow ([[spoiler: albeit useless]]) was pretty cool.
* {{The Load}}: To Switz; not that he minds.
* MoreHeroThanThou: after realizing that Switz intends to sacrifice himself for her, she vows to do the same for him.
* {{Nice Girl}}: Thinks sweet, acts sweet.
* {{Power Trio}}/{{Two Guys and a Girl}}: With Switz and Austria.
* [[spoiler: RasputinianDeath / WhyWontYouDie]]: Amazingly, in the fourth What If [[spoiler: she survives being clubbed in the head with a morningstar and has to be hit several more times before finally dying.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lion}}: One of the last tributes to die, thanks to her brother's protection.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Senseless Sacrifice}}]]: See Heroic Sacrifice.

* {{Action Girlfriend}}: To [[{{Non Action Guy}} Austria]].
* {{Berserk Button}}: Don't hit on her unless you're Austria. And heaven have mercy on your soul if you hurt him.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: She's generally amiable, but if you push her buttons...
* [[spoiler: {{Broken Bird}}: She's definitely one as of the epilogue.]]
* {{Chastity Couple}}: Even after being 'married' to Austria, though justified because they're on national television.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: surviving the Games without Austria]] turns her into a cynical BrokenBird [[spoiler: in the epilogue.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Death by Adaptation}}: In the second and fourth What Ifs.]]
* {{Despair Event Horizon}}: Dances on it after [[spoiler: Austria is killed]].
* {{Determinator}}: Keeps going just because she can.
* {{Extreme Melee Revenge}}: [[spoiler: Dishes this out to Gil.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Final Girl}}: The Victor of the Games.]]
* {{Frying Pan of Doom}}: Receives one from sponsors and uses it appropriately.

* [[spoiler: {{Her Heart Will Go On}}: She survives, but her fiancé/husband doesn't.]]
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: [[spoiler: After Austria is killed.]]
* {{Improbable Weapon User}}: [[spoiler: Wins the Hunger Games]] with a frying pan ([[spoiler: and Russia's knife.]])
* {{Its Personal}}: Veta never takes a directly aggressive stance against her opponents until [[spoiler: Gil kills Austria]]. Then ... let's just say you do NOT want to push her {{Berserk Button}}.
* {{Kick Them While They Are Down}}: Does this to Gil.
* {{Love Makes You Crazy}}/{{Love Makes You Evil}}: Not that she was by any means evil, but her darkest and craziest act ([[spoiler: Extreme Melee Revenge on Gil]]) was powered by [[spoiler: her pain over Austria's death]].
* {{Love Hurts}}: If being reaped with your fiancé isn't bad enough, [[spoiler: surviving while he dies]] definitely is.
* {{The Mourning After}}: [[spoiler: Even after Austria's death, Veta still considers herself to be "Mrs. Veta Edel." Woe to you if you forget it.]]
* {{My Own Private I Do}}: With Austria.
* [[spoiler: {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: Delivers one to Gil.]]
* {{Official Couple}}: Veta/Austria is the only 'ship in the series that actually stays afloat ([[spoiler: until, of course, he dies]]).
* {{Pervert Revenge Mode}}: Goes absolutely insane when Franse hits on her.
* {{Plucky Girl}}: Not necessarily cheerful the whole time, but doesn't think much about giving up.
* {{Pummeling the Corpse}}: [[spoiler: To Gil.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Pyrrhic Victory}}: Wins the Games, but after Austria's death.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Shell Shocked Veteran}}: "I survived the Hunger Games. I'm about as broken as they come."]]
* {{Single Woman Seeks Good Man}}: Austria's not exactly the {{Badass}} of the series...

* [[spoiler: {{Sole Survivor}}: According to the Hunger Games rules.]]
* {{Star Crossed Lovers}}: With Austria.
* [[spoiler: {{Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome}}: Sort of. She's the {{Sole Survivor}} of ''Brutal'', but the first of its characters to die in ''What If''.]]

* [[spoiler: {{Together in Death}}: With Austria in ''What If''.]]

!!Ukraine Bragins:

* [[{{Big Brother Instinct}} Big Sister Instinct]]: vows that she'll protect Russia, [[spoiler: although she's not ultimately successful.]]
* TheEeyore: lampshaded in the title of her introductory chapter, ''Optimism and Pessimism.''
* FragileFlower: She never claims to be tough.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: a sweet, innocent character with pale blonde hair.
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: Not too cheerful, but on the cuter side.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Japan.]]
* NiceGirl: Doesn't think for a moment about living at the cost of her brother's life.
* [[spoiler: {{Off With Her Head}}: Japan's method of execution.]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]: like Toris, while she doesn't last long enough to be as developed as some of the other characters, [[spoiler: her death contributes hugely to the plot in that it sends Russia over the Despair Event Horizon.]]
* [[spoiler: StuffedIntoTheFridge]]: played almost straight. Japan didn’t intentionally [[spoiler: leave her headless body lying around,]] but in all other aspects it fits perfectly.

!!Eudocia Conc:

* [[spoiler: Kill The Cutie: Quite innocent, now dead.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Via asthma attack.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Doesn't mean much more than a KickTheDog moment for Corianne.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: Just there to fill up the bloodbath.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: The only real glimpse of her life is her 750 words in her introductory chapter. ]]

!!Peyton Unbi:

* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]: Vivi takes care to [[spoiler: kill her in the most agonizing way possible,]] leaving time between the [[spoiler: sword blows]] so that her pain is not dulled.
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: One of the perkier characters to die.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Vivi.]]
* LikeBrotherAndSister: her friendship with Philan is depicted this way in one of Number One Fan of Journey's comedic fanarts, with Peyton stressing that they're not romantically involved.
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Since Philan doesn't live, either, her death doesn't amount to much.]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb: Dies too early to be important.]]
* TrueCompanions: has an extremely close bond with her district partner/friend Philan, whom she considers to be her 'twin' as they were born on the same day.
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe: Dies before we get to know her.]]

!!Poal Feliks:

* AllGirlsLikePonies: At whatever cost...
* AllWorkvsAllPlay: the 'all play' to Toris' 'all work.'
* CloudCuckooLander: acts more concerned with eating berries and pony-riding than staying alive in the Hunger Games.
* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHer: has her neck broken from being bucked off a horse shortly after the bloodbath.]]
* DumbBlonde: Blonde, and not too acquainted with logic.
* [[spoiler: ForgottenFallenFriend]]: to Toris, [[spoiler: although his next POV consists mostly of him running for his life and being killed, so it could be assumed that his grieving took place off-screen.]]
* GenderFlip: to the male Poland in ''Hetalia''.
* GenkiGirl: Always chipper.
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: See Genki Girl and Killed Off for Real.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By a pony, of all things.]]
* LikeIsLikeAComma: To the point the author apologised for her POV's.
* ThePollyanna: Death games? Who cares—I, like, found a pony!
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb: Never has much impact on the story.]]
* SkewedPriorities: "I, like, totally want to ride a pony before I die!"
* ValleyGirl: Quite fond of "like" and "totally" in particular.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Horrible'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Rome Gnaeus:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Maybe a little annoying, but certainly not villainous in the original.
* {{Affably Evil}}: So much that he went for the "fun and friendly" angle during his interviews.
* [[spoiler: {{Alas Poor Villain}}: Even if you don't like the guy, you have to admit that being betrayed by his ally/crush and croaking out her name as he lies dying is a sad way to go.]]
* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Although he's certain that Ania will fall for him, it never happens.
* AntiVillain: a dark Type IV, if you squint. He spends more of his time boasting and flirting than doing anything actively malevolent, and the only time he succeeds in killing somebody in the core storyline, it’s by indirect means. Despite this, he still definitely opposes the protagonists.
* BetaCouple: with Ania, [[spoiler: albiet unrequited.]]
* BigBad: of the Horrible career pack, [[spoiler: until [[{{DragonAscendant}} Ania]] takes over.]]
* {{Boisterous Bruiser}}: Decides he just has to take on a giant lizard mutt by himself for the fun of it.
* {{Brains and Brawn}}: The brawn to Ania's brains.
* TheCasanova: Apparently dates dozens of girls at once.
* {{Curb Stomp Battle}}: Against [[spoiler: Gries]] in the sixth What If.
* {{Dirty Business}}: How he seems to view killing females and the defenceless. He doesn't like it much, but feels he has to do it anyway.
* [[spoiler: {{Et tu Brute}}: Gets stabbed in the back by his ally, Ania.]]
* {{Evil Duo}}: With Ania; she being the Superego, he being the Id.
* {{The Fighting Narcissist}}: Definitely fighting, and his introductory chapter was so darn narcissistic the author had difficulty writing it.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Ania.]]
* {{Large Ham}}: "I, the great and powerful Rome!"
* [[spoiler: {{Last Kiss}}: Kisses Ania as she dies in the sixth What If. Since he dies not long afterwards, this would make it his last kiss as well. Slightly subverted in that it's more creepy and manipulative than romantic.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Love Hurts}}: Like a sword through the back. Literally.]]
* {{Love Martyr}}: Never stops hoping Ania will reciprocate his feelings, even when it's incredibly obvious she hates his guts.
* {{Laughably Evil}}: Definitely an antagonist, but his narcissism makes him humorous.
* [[spoiler: {{Manipulative Bastard}}: Surprisingly, he has a moment of this in the sixth What If when he tells Ania he'd feel a lot less guilty about killing her if she returned his affections, then exploits her desire to repay him so that she lets him kiss her.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: With Igris in the sixth What If.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: For a career.
* [[spoiler: {{No Kill Like Overkill}}: Amer tears his neck to absolute shreds in the first What If.]]
* {{Not So Harmless Villain}}: Does absolutely nothing – until he [[spoiler: mortally wounds Fronce.]]
* {{Pet the Dog}}: Quite a few: he [[{{Taking the Bullet}} Took a Bullet]] for Ania on their first meeting, has a distaste for harming females and the defenceless (although he does it anyway) and was polite enough to [[spoiler: carry Gries' body to where the hovercraft could get it]] in the sixth What If.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to Ania
* {{Taking the Bullet}}: Shielded Ania from a hit on her first day in the Career training centre, for which she wants to repay him.
* {{What the Hell Costuming Department}}: In-universe. Rome didn't think the fake eyelashes went too well with his 'manly' angle.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Though, to his credit, he doesn't like it much.

!!Vash Zerlan:

* [[spoiler: AccidentalMurder]]: possibly. The author has [[ShrugOfGod never confirmed]] if he intended to [[spoiler: shoot Dardana at the bloodbath]] or was innocently testing out his crossbow.
* AdaptationalVillainy: More neutral in ''Hetalia''.
* TheArcher: Or Crossbow-Shooter, as the case may be.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Doesn't do much talking, but fine with killing.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Blonde and definitely not a hero.
* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHim: dies suddenly and unceremoniously from an explosion in the early stages of the Games.]]
* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler: shoots his own district partner, Dardana, in the head.]]
* EvilOrphan: Hasn't had a morally-nurturing life after escaping the orphanage.
* FreudianExcuse: lived a miserable childhood on the streets and in orphanages before turning to the Career training program as his only option.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: by pinecones.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: has absolutely no sympathy for any of his competition, killing [[spoiler: Dardana and Meghna]] without a second thought.
* TheQuietOne: See Beware the Quiet Ones.
* TheStoic: Devoid of emotion other than vague annoyance.
* [[spoiler: SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome]]: in a way. The version of Switzerland in ‘’Horrible,’’ Switz, [[spoiler: lasts nearly to the end of the Games,]] but Vash [[spoiler: dies sooner and far more unceremoniously.]]
* TriggerHappy: is a little too eager to let loose his arrows.

!!Spain Carriedo:

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}: Almost on the receiving end of this trope.]]
** [[spoiler: And he certainly isn't the kind that would kill Aztinca, but...]]
* {{Always Save the Girl}}: As a part of his atonement.
* {{The Atoner}}: He does everything he can to make up for [[spoiler: killing [[{{Jerkass Victim}} Atzinca]].]]
* {{Belligerent Sexual Tension}}: What his and Lovi's relationship can be interpreted easily as.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: Very nice... But with a less than spotless story.
* {{Big Brother Instinct}}: To Lovi.
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Cutie}}: Twice: 1) when he saw his sister die on national television and 2) when he killed Atzinca.]]
* {{Crouching Moron Hidden Badass}}: Can be a goofball, but can also kick butt if it comes down to it.
* CynicismCatalyst: between [[spoiler: his sister's death two years previously, an [[AccidentalMurder accidental]] [[SympatheticMurderBackstory murder]] to his name, and the brief guilt of letting Perdita die]], he certainly has a lot of motivation for trying to protect Lovi.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: He has his small moments with Lovi.
* DeclarationOfProtection: towards Lovi.
* {{Drop the Hammer}}: He shares a hammer with Lovi.
* TheFakeCutie: What Lovi starts suspecting him to be. At first, it's used in a comedic light when Spain jokes about it to her...then it's used in a horrifying deconstruction when [[spoiler: Lovi almost murders him for it]].
* {{Green Eyes}}: Startlingly so, apparently, and with a bit of untrustworthiness to accompany it.
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: He starts slipping a bit when he sees that the arena to this year's Game is [[spoiler: just like the one that Maria died in]].
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: He chooses to save Lovi [[spoiler: and sacrifices their supplies to Sadik.]]
* {{I Let Gwen Stacy Die}}: He has shades of this when he remembers how he wasn't able to save [[spoiler: Perdita]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Ania.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: One of the least selfish characters in the series.
* {{Nice Job Breaking It Hero}}: Wow, Spain, nice job [[spoiler: letting it slip that you strangled a chick…]] especially when you're playing the CHILDMURDER GAMES.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: In the core series, at least.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Compared to the fitful Lovi.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: Always tries his best to cheer Lovi up.
* {{Ship Tease}}: Oh so much with Lovi.
* {{Slashed Throat}}: [[spoiler: Although he's already KO-ed with brain damage, he dies this way courtesy of Ania.]]
* [[spoiler: SympatheticMurderBackstory]]: Spain is revealed to [[spoiler: have killed one person]] before the Games: a young woman who mocked his sister's untimely death.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: The calming Blue Oni to Lovi's more impulsive Red Oni.
* {{Retirony}}: Spain could've missed the Reaping- if only his birthday came four days earlier…
* {{Tap on the Head}}: Horrifyingly averted. Justified, because [[spoiler: it's done with a hammer.]]
* {{Unskilled but Strong}}: He scored a 9 but isn't trained like a Career.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Has shades of this with Lovi.

!!Wiremu Sachy:

* [[spoiler: AssholeVictim: Killed for his attempt to rape Finni.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Attempted Rape}}: Thank ''goodness'' Sve got there first.]]
* {{The Brute}}: In ''Horrible'''s Career group.
* [[spoiler: {{For the Evulz}}: What he almost does to Finni.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Given no excuses.
* [[spoiler: {{Kick the Dog}}: Again, what he almost does to Finni.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Sve.]]
* {{Neck Snap}}: He kills [[spoiler: Perdita]] this way.
* {{Rape Is A Special Kind Of Evil}}: He's one of the least, if not the least, sympathetic Careers because of this.
* {{Slashed Throat}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way.]]
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Or worse.
* {{Would Hurt a Child}}: Poor, poor [[spoiler: Perdita.]]

!!Igris Kirkland:

* AloofBigBrother: To Shiran.
* {{Anti Hero}}: A wannabe of it; Igris keeps on saying that he's okay with killing people in order to get out of the Games alive, but when it comes down to it, [[spoiler: he doesn't actually kill and never slides beyond Type II at worst.]]
* {{Badass}}: Not too soft for a pampered rich kid. After all, he managed to master the rapier in what seems like seconds.
* {{Big Ol Eyebrows}}: Both Fronce and Amer love to rib him about it. And his little brother, Shiran, also has them.
* ChekhovsHobby: His skill with embroidery comes in handy when he has to knit up Fronce's wounds.
* [[{{Cool Big Sis}} Cool Big Bro]]: Aloof but caring.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: This is what makes about the majority of his banter with Amer and Fronce enjoyable in a {{crapsack world}}.
* {{Defrosting Ice King}}: At first glance, he seems like a callous jerk- but then you see him soften up like a marshmallow-pillow.
* {{Death by Adaptation}}: He doesn't fare too well in the What Ifs.
* {{First Person Smart Ass}}: As a result of him being a {{Deadpan Snarker}}, his narrative is also snarky.
* FriendlessBackground: due to his wealth and general {{Jerk Ass}} attitude, his only friend is [[{{VitriolicBestBuds}} Fronce]] and later [[spoiler: Amer]].
* {{Genius Bruiser}}: He's very clever and smart, AND he's strong enough to [[spoiler: subdue the Careers in battle.]]
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: [[{{Blatant Lies}} Despite what he says about how Anti Hero he is]], he never abandons Fronce even though it would've been the more pragmatic course of action. Heck, he doesn't even [[spoiler: kill ANIA.]]
* {{Jade Colored Glasses}}: What he starts wearing during the Games- although it doesn't stop him from putting {{Honor before Reason}}.
* {{Jerk with a Heart of Gold}}: One of his defining characteristics. We even sympathize with him when he learn of his reason for wanting to [[spoiler: abandon China to die alone.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By poison.]]
* {{Lethal Chef}}: He once brought in some home-baked cookies to share with everyone...and guess how that turned out?
* {{Lonely Rich Kid}}: It makes it even more sad when Fronce [[spoiler: , his first and only friend, dies]].
** Even Shiran knows of that and thanks Amer for being Igris's friend.
* {{Messy Hair}}: Perpetually so, Games or otherwise.
* {{Mutual Kill}}: [[spoiler: with Ania in the first What If.]]
* {{Not So Above it All}}: It's noted that even though he tried to act like a gentleman, he got too annoyed by Caesar to fully keep his composure during the interviews. Amusingly, the same fate was also shared with his fellow {{Tsundere}}, Lovi.
* SiblingYinYang: He is cynial and aloof, while Shiran is optimistic and friendly.
* SourOutsideSadInside: Always gratingly sarcastic, but deep down just terribly lonely and insecure.
* {{Spoiled Sweet}}: Even though he's rich, he doesn't act like the stereotypical rich brat and treats everyone like equals. He even baked cookies once to share with his fellow workers at the Trading Post.
* {{Skewed Priorities}}: Really, Igris? You really had to move out of your hiding place to make TEA in the CHILDMURDER GAMES?!
* StepfordSnarker: See Sour Outside Sad Inside.
* TechnicalPacifist: He has no qualms with combat; he just doesn't want to kill his defeated opponents.
* {{Tsundere}}: A platonic version to Fronce. Even though Igris tries to make himself look all grouch and stoic, his true feelings are shown in his narrative.
* WouldHitAGirl: has no qualms with attacking the fierce Ania in self-defense.
* VitriolicBestBuds: with Fronce.

!!Fronce Foybon:

* [[spoiler: AccidentalMurder]]: neglects to tell his allies that [[spoiler: his berry sauce is poisonous]] when consumed in large amounts. He is duly horrified when [[spoiler: China]] eats too much one night and dies.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: when he asks Igris if he would leave him behind to die like he did [[spoiler: China]]. Although Igris doesn’t let Fronce know it got to him, he clearly thinks it over before [[spoiler: his later NoOneGetsLeftBehind moment.)]]
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Igris expresses horror and grief when Fronce is [[spoiler: severely wounded and eventually dies.]]
* BandofBrothers: with Igris and [[spoiler: Amer]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Not particularly well-built but quite the ladies' man.
* TheCasanova / CasanovaWannabe: it's unclear just how successful his flirting is in everyday life.
* ChekhovsHobby: He's a good cook. This comes in handy during the Hunger Games.
* ChivalrousPervert: an unashamed flirt, but a decent human being nonetheless.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* DistressedDude: Not the fighter in his alliances.
* FireForgedFriends: with Igris and [[spoiler: Amer]].
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice]]: see Taking the Bullet.
* HollywoodHealing: zigzagged. He initially [[spoiler: survives a sword through the stomach]] thanks to only stitches and disinfectant, but [[spoiler: dies later]] – though not of this injury, but [[spoiler: infection from an unnoticed wound on his neck.]]
* IWillOnlySlowYouDown: unsuccessfully begs [[spoiler: Igris to leave him behind after he’s been severely wounded and infected.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By infection.]]
* TheLoad: to Igris and [[spoiler: Amer, after he's been wounded.]]
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: In a plot-relevant way, no less.
* MeaningfulEcho: after Igris abandons [[spoiler: China to die alone]], Fronce indignantly asks him if he would leave him behind in a similar situation. Igris responds that he would instead stick around to taunt him. Much later, after [[spoiler: Fronce has been gravely injured and knocked out,]] he wakes up to discover [[spoiler: Igris is carrying him on his back.]] The first words out of his mouth? [[spoiler: [[{{CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming}} "So you didn't leave me behind after all."]]]]
* MortalWoundReveal: the [[spoiler: infected cut behind his long hair.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: after [[spoiler: accidentally killing China.]]
* NonActionGuy: apart from a swordfight with Igris in the training center. Justified, as he is never given a weapon, and cannot fight with his bare hands.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Igris [[spoiler: refuses to leave him to die, even when he’s badly injured.]]
* OnlyFriend: to Igris, before [[spoiler: Amer]] enters the picture.

!!Eston von Bock:

* BandOfBrothers / FireForgedFriends: with Amer and Raivis, especially during the third What If.
* BigBrotherInstinct: towards Raivis.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* DistressedDude: Thankfully Amer's ready to protect him.
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity]]: in the third What If.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: allows Amer to kill him so that Raivis can win]] in the third What If.
* IDontWantToDie: in a truly heartbreaking scene, [[spoiler: he goes off by himself and cries after a coin toss decides he must die for Raivis.]] This doesn’t stop him from eventually [[spoiler: making the HeroicSacrifice.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Vahn.]]
* TheLancer / TheSmartGuy: in his alliance with Amer and Raivis.
* NonActionGuy: Rather scrawny, actually.
* {{Megane}}: Has glasses and can arouse some affection.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to the paranoid, the brain-damaged bully, and the kid with the hero complex...
* PowerTrio: with Amer and Raivis.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Raivis’ new ‘brother’ after losing [[spoiler: Toris]] two years previously.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion: His death definitely makes a difference for Amer... And Vahn.]]
* ShootTheDog: [[spoiler: Amer kills him in the third What If so that Raivis can be the Victor.]]
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat: dies this way in the third What If.]]
* SomeoneHasToDie: in the third What If, he and his allies Raivis and Amer [[spoiler: are the final three tributes, but only one of them is allowed to survive. Amer volunteers to kill one of them and then himself. Eston loses a coin toss and dies in place of Raivis.]]
* TeenGenius / GadgeteerGenius: he says in his intro chapter that he’s very skilled with all sorts of technology, and that he could easily start a fire with a battery and some wire. In the third What If, it’s revealed that his dream is to become talented enough to work in District 3.
* TheVonTropeFamily: Courtesy of his Hetalian name.

!!Sadik Ottoman:

* AscendedExtra / EarlyBirdCameo: he features in the ''Brutal'' epilogue before becoming a more important character in ''Horrible.''
* CoolMask: wears one 24/7.
* HonorBeforeReason: intended to go as far as he could through the Games without killing to entertain the Capitol. His resolve caved in pretty quickly when hunger got the best of him, [[spoiler: although he still couldn’t bring himself to kill Lovi.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Amer.]]
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: in the ''Brutal'' epilogue.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: to Spain and Lovi, when he holds the latter hostage in exchange for supplies. [[spoiler: He’s not intending to kill her, though.]]
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistfight: Sadik commences his and Amer's fist fight by pulling a knife, and promptly loses it. [[spoiler: Guess who wins.]] Sort of zigzagged, though, since he wasn't trying to play dirty by taking out the knife, just warning Amer not to mess with him.
* TheQuietOne: unless he's around [[{{SitcomArchNemesis}} Gries.]]
* SadisticChoice: forces Spain to choose between Lovi's left and their alliance's vital supplies.
* ShootHimHeHasAWallet: zigzagged. Sadik [[spoiler: is killed]] for pulling out a knife, averting this trope, but he was doing so to dissuade, not harm, his attacker.
* SitcomArchNemesis: with Gries. Unlike most of the rivalries in the series, it isn’t too serious and doesn’t culminate in violence in the arena.
* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler: dies when Amer cuts his throat with broken glass.]]
* TheStoic: Doesn't do much overreacting.

!!Vahn Larus:

* {{Accent Adaptation}}: Sort of. Since most citizens of Panem probably don't know what on earth Russia is, his Russian accent is interpreted by his adoptive parents as a speech impediment and by the doctor as a rare disorder.
* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Never returns Natalya's affections, and for good reason.
* {{An Axe to Grind}}: Gets a pickaxe from the bloodbath.
* {{Ascended Extra}}/{{Early Bird Cameo}}: Briefly mentioned in ''Brutal'' as having attacked Russia; a rather important supporting character in the sequel.
* [[spoiler: {{Asshole Victim}}: True, Amer [[{{Jumping Off the Slippery Slope}} Jumps Off the Slippery Slope]] when he kills him, but after everything he's just done to Eston and Raivis, it's easy to sympathize with the murderer.]]
* {{Bad Boss}}: Keeps his 'allies', Eston and Raivis, in line with threats and violence.
* {{Blond Guys are Evil}}: Taken from his ''Hetalia'' counterpart, though Vahn can't be argued to be innocent at all.
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Badass}}: His crying at his death scene shows the reader just how dangerous and merciless Amer has become.]]
* {{Brother Sister Incest}}: This is why he's scared of Natalya.
* {{The Bully}}: Acts like this to Eston and Raivis, and was implied to be one back in District 9, beating up Russia for his optimism and having a gang of cronies.
* {{The Brute}}: Not belonging to any pack.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Has all of his guts ripped out.]]
* [[spoiler: {{David Versus Goliath}}: In his fights against Amer.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Death Equals Emotion}}: Serves as {{The Stoic}} for most of the series, but breaks down crying and wishing to go home right before he bites it.]]
* {{Even Evil Has Loved Ones}}: Although he tries to avoid Natalya and has no problem with her dying so he can get home, he does claim to genuinely love her (though not in the way she'd like, thank goodness...)
* {{Evil Orphan}}: Though one who is {{Happily Adopted}}.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: Hinted at; he lost his parents at a young age.
* {{Funetik Aksent}}: Although not terribly consistent for readability.
* {{Happily Adopted}}: Natalya's parents took him in and paid for his surgery after he was injured in the machinery accident that killed his parents.
** {{Oblivious Adoption}}: Possibly. His adoptive mother told him she was his real mother, and it's unknown if he ever figured out the truth.
* {{Heartwarming Orphan}}: As a child.
* {{Husky Russkie}}/{{Mother Russia Makes You Strong}}: Strong and based on Russia.
* {{Just Toying With Them}}: Does this to Amer in the third What If because he's certain he can beat him. [[{{Crowning Moment of Awesome}} Amer proves him wrong]].
* {{Kick the Dog}}: Cuts off Raivis' finger just to keep him in line.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Amer.]]
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: Sees nothing wrong with [[spoiler: murdering and chopping off fingers for punishment.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way at Amer's hands.]]
* {{Not Blood Siblings}}: With Natalya.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: States that he really does care for Natalya, despite her {{Yandere}} tendencies. Subverted in that he'd be perfectly fine with her death as long as it means he can win.
* {{Power Trio}}: With Eston and Raivis.
* [[spoiler: {{Rasputinian Death}}: He has most of his abdominal cavity removed before his cannon fires.]]
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Is on the receiving end of a truly merciless one from Amer.
* [[spoiler: {{Russian Guy Suffers Most}}: Gets what might be the most painful death in the entire series, having everything – all the way through to his spine – hacked up and ripped apart.]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't show much emotion until [[spoiler: begging for mercy from Amer.]]
* {{This is Unforgivable}}: Said to him by Amer after [[spoiler: he kills Eston and Raivis.]]
* {{Used to be a Sweet Kid}}: Seems to be one in Natalya's flashback.
* [[spoiler: {{Villains Want Mercy}}: Begs Amer to stop his {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}.]]
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Celladora]] at the bloodbath.
* {{You Monster}}: Said to him by Amer after [[spoiler: he kills Eston and Raivis.]]

!!Amer Jones:

* [[spoiler: AGoodWayToDie: in the third What If.]]
* AmericaSavesTheDay: Or he certainly wants to.
* AntiHero: definitely wants to be a straight hero, but [[spoiler: ends up as a type II-IV,]] depending on how the reader interprets him.
* TheAtoner: During the latter part of ''Horrible''. Notable in that all his attempts to make up for what he had done wrong [[spoiler: failed miserably, through no fault of his own]].

* BeAllMySinsRemembered: Can't rebuild his self-image as hero after [[spoiler: killing Vahn.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Nice enough to swear protection over most people he meets... [[spoiler: And horribly murder anyone in his way.]]
* BerserkButton: Never hurt or threaten his friends in front of him. Ever.
* BigBrotherInstinct: To Raivis and Eston (ironic in that he's younger than both of them) as well as his own brother, Matt. Eventually extends to [[spoiler: Shiran]] as well.

* TheBigGuy: In both of his alliances.

* BreakTheCutie: See below.
* BrokenBird: He's pretty much traumatized for life by the [[spoiler: end of the story]].
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Vows to save most of the people on his path.
* CurbStompBattle: vs. Vahn.
* CynicismCatalyst: It's hard to pick just one for him, between [[spoiler: the deaths of ''all four'' of his allies, his survival at the cost of Igris' life, his [[ShootHimHeHasAWallet murder]] of Sadik, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge torturing and killing]] Vahn, and losing his illusion of himself as a hero.]] Suffice to say that he's pretty broken as of [[spoiler: the epilogue.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: On occasion, particularly later in the fic when he's allied with Fronce and Igris.
* [[spoiler: DeathByAdaptation: As he won ''Horrible'', he's pretty much doomed to die in every ''What If'' ending.]]

* DespairEventHorizon: After the death of [[spoiler: his first alliance]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: The manner in which [[spoiler: he kills Vahn]].
* DoomMagnet: Justified and lampshaded.
* DrivenToSuicide: Almost. Played nearly straight in the first ending of ''What If'': [[spoiler: he doesn't kill himself, but allows Gries to slit his throat]]. Played straight in the [[spoiler: sixth]] What If.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Platonic version; he is more than willing to die for friends he's known for only a few days.
* {{Eagleland}}: Wants to be a Type I, but is more of a mix between the two.
* EvilMeScaresMe: This trope is exactly what happened after he realized [[spoiler: what he did to Vahn.]]
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: [[spoiler: He dishes this out to Vahn.]]
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity: At the end of ''Horrible'' (although it winds up being Igris who dies) and in the third What If.]]
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: YMMV on whether he actually becomes a heel or not.
* FailureToSaveMurder: He believes [[spoiler: Shiran]] will hold him responsible for the death of [[spoiler: his brother, Igris. Shiran]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming proves him wrong.]]
* FightingFromTheInside: He tries darned hard not to go psychotic again.
* FireForgedFriends: With both of his alliances.
* [[spoiler: HeelRealization: After killing Vahn.]]

* HeroicResolve: When fighting Vahn in the third What If.
* HeroicSacrifice: He volunteers for the Hunger Games in place of his twin brother, Matt, [[spoiler: although slightly subverted in that he doesn't die. This trope is played straight in the Third What If.]]

* HeroicWannabe: In true ''Hetalia'' style.
* HeroWithAnFInGood: He tries so hard to be the hero, but constantly makes things even worse.

* ILetGwenStacyDie: Will feel guilty over any perceived failures.

* TheInsomniac: Early on, when he can't find an ally.
* ItsPersonal: His opinion of Vahn goes from general dislike to UnstoppableRage after the aforementioned [[spoiler: kills his allies]].

* [[spoiler: JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: After killing Sadik, he goes on to violently murder Vahn.]]
* [[spoiler: KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Continues to mutilate Vahn, even when he's so injured he can no longer be called a threat.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: To Vahn.
* [[spoiler: KillTheOnesYouLove: Kills Eston in the third What If.]]
* [[spoiler: MilesToGoBeforeISleep: Amer would certainly like to kill himself at the end of the third What If scenario, but that would mean leaving his two allies to kill each other. So he has to ShootTheDog before offing himself.]]
* MoreHeroThanThou: Has this debate with Igris at the end of ''Horrible''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After [[spoiler: shredding Vahn.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Being unable to save his allies and killing two tributes, one extremely violently.]]

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: To Vahn.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Realizes that anything bad he says about Vahn would also apply to himself, as they have both been responsible for deaths in the Games.

* [[spoiler: ShootTheDog: Does this to Eston in the third What If so he won't have to kill Raivis.]]

* [[spoiler: HowDareYouDieOnMe]]: says this to Finni.

* {{Ascended Extra}}/{{Early Bird Cameo}}: Barely mentioned in ''Brutal'';a rather important character in the sequel. Even more important in one of the What Ifs, and [[spoiler: the central character in the oneshot "Hit the Bottle" (which is based off that What If scenario.)]]
* {{Band of Brothers}}: Part of this with Amer and Eston. Especially pronounced in the third What If.
* {{Broken Bird}}: Sort of. [[spoiler: His brother's death]] made him incredibly paranoid, and the Games did even more to scar him. However, he's not cynical in the slightest.
* {{The Chick}}: He fulfills this role in Amer's first alliance.
* [[spoiler: {{Corrupt the Cutie}}: Becomes a drunkard and almost kills his father in "Hit the Bottle". Fortunately, he gets better.]]

* {{Fingore}}: Loses a finger as punishment for trying to escape Vahn's alliance.
* {{Fire Forged Friends}}: With Eston and Amer, particularly in the third What If.

* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lion}}: His death breaks Amer further.]]

* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type IV with Corianne, eventually growing into Type I.
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}]]

!!Lovi Vargas:

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}: Almost. After deciding not to kill Spain, she accidentally conks him on the head with the hammer, giving him a concussion which would likely have landed him on her kill list if it wasn't for Ania.]]

* {{Damsel in Distress}}: Although she tries her hardest to deny it, she really wouldn't have gotten anywhere without Spain.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}
* {{Defrosting Ice Queen}}
* {{Despair Event Horizon}}: Seems like she might have crossed it if [[spoiler: Ania hadn't gotten there first]].
* [[spoiler: {{Dropped a Bridge on Her}}]]
* [[spoiler: {{Driven to Suicide}}: Well, Driven to Allowing Gries to Kill Her in the first What If.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Et tu Brute}}: She is very disturbed by Spain's admission that he's killed someone before the Games, worries he will betray her, and almost stabs him in the back for it.]]

* {{Fire Forged Friends}}: With Spain, at least before everything goes downhill.

* [[spoiler: {{Out Damned Spot}}: Gouges out her own eyes in the first What If so she won't be tormented by visions of Spain.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lion}}]]
* {{Ship Tease}}: With Spain, though it could just as easily be seen as platonic.
* {{Shorttank}}
* {{Sir Swears A Lot}}: So much that chapters featuring her usually begin with a warning in the form of an Author's Note.
** Although her swearing was edited out in later revisions.
* [[spoiler: {{Slashed Throat}}: Dies this way.]]
* SourOutsideSadInside: It's hinted that her gruff exterior is a result of the inferiority she feels over being TheUnfavorite.
* StepfordSnarker
* {{Tears of Remorse}}: After injuring Spain in ''Horrible'' and [[spoiler: actually killing him]] in ''What If''.
* {{Tsundere}}
* {{The Unfavourite}}: Her intro chapter makes it clear that her grandfather preferred Feli to her. It's also telling that he didn't come to see her after the reapings, while apparently giving Feli advice on staying away from Careers when she was reaped.
* {{Unresolved Sexual Tension}}: YMMV, but if you support the {{Ship Tease}} between her and Spain, it's definitely there.
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: After complaining of hunger for quite a while, she and Spain finally get some food donated to them... only for it to be stolen by Sadik.

!!Taberah Atalanta:

* ActionGirl
** DarkActionGirl
* AntiVillain: Type II (or possibly IV). She has no interest in killing people, but does so only to win the money for her ill father. [[spoiler: Outside of the bloodbath, she never succeeds in killing anybody.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: against Gries.]]
* TheDarkChick
* DesignatedGirlFight: [[spoiler: against Gries.]]

* {{Power Trio}}/{{Two Guys and a Girl}}: With Fronce and Igris.
* {{Screw This Im Outta Here}}: Planned to do this to her alliance at the beginning.
* [[spoiler: {{Spared by Adaptation}}: For a while in the sixth What If.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Stay With Me Until I Die}}: Discussed when Igris and Fronce abandon her to die alone. Fronce is sure she would have wanted this, but Igris claims that Fronce's presence would just have made her angrier (since she died from eating too much of his unknowingly poisoned food.)]]
* {{Supreme Chef}}/{{Team Chef}}
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: Sick of Igris and Fronce bossing her around, she sneaks behind their backs and eats the rations they wouldn't let her have. [[spoiler: This turns out to have been a very, very bad idea.]]

* {{Ascended Extra}}/{{Early Bird Cameo}}: Got a cameo in the ''Brutal'' epilogue before becoming an important character in the sequel.
* {{Brainy Brunette}}
* {{Brilliant but Lazy}}: One of the biggest minds in the Games, but spends most of her time sleeping. Although that's exactly how she wants it.

* {{The Cynic}}: She's pretty cynical when she [[spoiler: kills her opponents]].
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}
* {{Determinator}}

* {{Fauxlosophic Narration}}
* [[spoiler: FinalGirl: In the first What If.]]

* {{Guile Hero}}
* {{Instant Waking Skills}}
* {{Jade Colored Glasses}}
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}]]

* {{Manipulative Bitch}}: She successfully talks [[spoiler: Amer]] into letting himself get killed in ''What If''.
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: With Ania.]]
* [[{{Only Sane Man}} Only Sane Woman]]
* {{The Philosopher}}: For Panem's sake, it's the genderbent form of GREECE.
* {{Sleep With One Eye Open}}: What allows her to avoid being killed by [[spoiler: Taberah]].
* {{Sleepyhead}}
* {{Teen Genius}}: Sadik mentions that she's the top student in Math and Philosophy. And then, think of all her philosophizing, her common sense, and her plans for the Games...
* {{Took a Level in Badass}}: Almost sleeps through her interview, spends most of her time hiding ... then [[spoiler: kills a career when half-asleep]]!
* VitriolicBestBuds: Sort of, kinda hinted at with Sadik. Definitely goes towards this trope in the "If NOFOJ Wasn't NOFOJ" chapter of ''What If''.
* {{Wake Up Fighting}}: A bit zigzagged when she [[spoiler: spears Taberah with her curvy-weapon-thing]].
* {{Warrior Poet}}: In between bouts of philosophy, she also manages to kill at least two people.

!!Natalya Larus:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: towards Vahn. Not because she's ugly, but because she's his sister.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: thankfully, Vahn never returns her feelings.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: of the rare StalkerWithACrush variety.
* AvengingTheVillain: [[spoiler: defied;]] she is mature enough to realize that [[spoiler: killng Amer]] will not [[spoiler: bring Vahn back to her.]]

* ClingyJealousGirl
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath / KillItWithFire]]

When [[spoiler: they are punished for this,]] they decide to [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity by deciding just when to die rather than trying to escape.]]
* DespairEventHorizon / HeroicBSOD: after [[spoiler: Vahn dies.]] In the third What if, this is so extreme that she [[spoiler: loses the will to feed herself and dies of dehydration.]]
* Determinator: say what you want about her, but there’s something to be said for scouring an entire mountain for your brother over two days on the sustenance of nothing but an apple.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: rather than trying to escape the fire the Gamemakers set after them, she and Sve jump into it holding hands as a final act of defiance.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* LighterAndSofter: her portrayal here, as opposed to the portrayal of Belarus in many other fanworks, including the author’s other Hetalia fic, FanFic/TheRules. Her canon Yandere and KnifeNut tendencies are often taken UpToEleven in fanworks; here, the worst thing she does is stalk Vahn and try to break down his door, [[spoiler: never killing or even harming another tribute.]]
* LoveMakesYouCrazy
* NotBloodSiblings: with Vahn, although it’s not used to justify the squickiness of their relationship.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]

* {{Living Emotional Crutch}}: To Sve. When [[spoiler: she dies]], he feels he has no purpose left in life.

* {{Doomed by Canon}}: In ''The Hunger Games'', District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so you pretty much know she's going to die.

[[folder: ''Miserable'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Osso Torya:

--> "I also wouldn't be in the Games if it were not for my parents. I find no particular joy in the idea of killing, but my parents want to add an extra bit of fame to the name Torya. I suppose I'm somewhat of a pawn, if one chooses to look at it that way. I don't mind. I have to do something with my life, and constant luxury is really quite boring."\\


* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Even his own Career pack (with the exception of Magya) hates him.
* {{Adaptational Badass}}: The Austria in Hetalia may have been trained to be a fighter, but he eventually devolves into the pampered prince he is today. But in ''Miserable'', although he's still pampered, he definitely knows how to use a sword.
* {{Adaptational Villainy}}
* [[spoiler: {{Alas Poor Villain}}: Justified, as his death is witnessed by his closest ally Magya.]]
* AntiVillain: Type I. Still a villain in every sense of the word, but his relationship with Magya gives him a far more human side, he's much less ruthless than some of the series' other villains, and his eventually realization and acceptance that [[spoiler: he will most likely die]] makes him sympathetic. .
* {{Arch Enemy}}: To Ilber.
* {{Aristocrats Are Evil}}: He's considered to be an aristocrat, and he's also a Career, so...
* {{Badass}}: See Crowning Moment of Awesome.
** {{Badass in Distress}}: When [[spoiler: Ilber takes him down and Magya has to save him.]]
* BattleCouple: With Magya, albeit of the ShipTease variety.
* BigBad: of the ''Miserable'' career pack.
* BrainyBrunette
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Badass}}: Once Ilber breaks his arm, forcing him to realize he won't be going home alive.]]
* BreakTheHaughty
* {{The Chessmaster}}: The level of planning he does...it hurts my head sometimes...and, as Obiwanlivesforever said so herself in an earlier review, he's ONE CRAFTY BOY.
* {{Common Sense}}
* CryForTheDevil
* {{Cultured Badass}}: He's been living a rich, pampered life- I'm pretty sure that he's been raised to live a refined life.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: He's never speechless for a comeback, whenever Ilber tries to diss him.
* DefrostingIceKing: Gradually lets more and more of his soft side show when he's with Magya.
* {{Evil vs Evil}}: In his duel with Ilber.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: after [[spoiler: his arm is broken]], he faces [[spoiler: the likelihood of his death with solemn acceptance.]]
* FreudianExcuse: his sole reason for volunteering was family pressure.
* {{Genius Bruiser}}
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}]]
* {{The Load}}: To Magya, once he breaks his arm. Not that she seems to mind.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Is hated or feared by everyone in the pack, with the exception of Magya.
* LoveIsAWeakness: Tells Magya right at the beginning that there is absolutely no room for romance in the Games. This doesn't stop the ShipTease, of course.
* {{Megane}}
* {{Manipulative Bastard}}: Has shades of this, with his constant scheming.
* NeatFreak
* {{Only Sane Man}}: In the career pack. Arguably shares this role with Magya, if you overlook her occasional killing sprees and harsh sense of mercy.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: When he doesn't kill [[spoiler: Feli]], when he saves her from the fish mutt (though it's arguable how much of this was out of goodness and how much was out of gaining Sheen's loyalty), and many of his moments with Magya.
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}es: A lot of the Careers kept on giving him these.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Blue Oni to Ilber.
* {{Ship Tease}}: OH SO MUCH WITH MAGYA.
* {{Spoiled Sweet}}: He's rich and kind of spoiled, but he's not TOO snobby (but that may be a YMMV).
* {{The Stoic}}
* {{Stoic Spectacles}}
* {{Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome}}: Not him specifically, but the Hetalia character he's based off of. Austria was "good" in Brutal and reimagined here as a Career.
* {{Sugar and Ice Personality}}
* {{Tall Dark and Snarky}}
* [[spoiler: {{Villain Decay}}: Justified; he loses a lot of his threat once Ilber nearly kills him and breaks his arm.]]
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type 1 between him and Magya (also with possible {{Ship Tease}}.)
* [[spoiler: {{Villainous Valor}}: Fights bravely against Sui and Norge until the end, even managing to hurl a cleaver at the latter's back.]]
* {{Wicked Cultured}}
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Shoots Saki with his arrows and kills [[spoiler: Bell]].

!!Sheen Sehre:

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Despite all his efforts, Feli never truly reciprocates his feelings (though [[spoiler: her grief over his death]] could arguably count).
* [[spoiler: AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: His dying thoughts.]]
* AntiVillain: Type IV. He's a Career, but rarely does anything malevolent and spends most of his time trying to protect Feli.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Even if it means driving himself to the point of exhaustion, dragging down the whole Career pack, and planning to sacrifice his own life.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Feli; he being the Beast.
* BetaCouple: He and Feli are this for the overall series.
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: Norge doesn't even give him a chance.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: to Feli.
* DiminishingVillainThreat: Albeit in a somewhat positive way. He goes from having an 11 in training to being TheLoad to the Career pack and getting [[spoiler: [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomped]] by Norge]], but all for Feli.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Feli.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Apparently, he dreamed about Feli long before actually meeting her.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Perfectly willing to fight and die for a girl he's known for about a week. Though, to be fair, he thinks he's seen her in a dream before, and that they're fated to be together.
* [[spoiler: FirstKiss / LastKiss: Shares his only kiss with Feli as he lies dying.]]
* HurtingHero: Goes through physical and emotional turmoil, all to protect Feli.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* TheLoad: Wears himself out so much searching for Feli that he becomes this to the Careers.
* LoveAtFirstSight: falls head-over-heels for Feli the instant he sees her. (Although he believes he's seen her before in a dream.)
* LoveHurts
* LoveMartyr
* LoveRedeems: He most likely would have stayed a cold-hearted Career if it hadn't been for Feli.
* MercifulMinion: Subverted - he fully intended to kill Bell at the bloodbath, but let her go in order to run after Feli.
* NiceGuy: For a Career.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown / NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler: Dies this way at the hands of Norge.]]
* OfficialCouple: He and Feli are this for ''Miserable'', though they're more of a BetaCouple for the overall series.
* [[spoiler: RasputinianDeath]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* SelfSacrificeScheme: This most likely would have been his plan, if he and Feli had lived long enough to be the final two.
* SingleTargetSexuality: The second he sees Feli, he's certain he's destined for her.
* StalkerWithACrush: Pretty much, although he's portrayed sympathetically.
* StarCrossedLovers: Him and Feli, though it's largely one-sided on her part.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Apparently his usual demeanor is aloof and arrogant, but he sheds this immediately when it comes to Feli.
* [[spoiler: TogetherInDeath: With Feli.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Feli.
* VillainBallMagnet: Despite doing everything he can to convince Feli he's on her side, she nevertheless remains terrified of him for almost the entire fic.
* VillainousCrush: On Feli. Of the 'LoveRedeems' type.
* WouldHitAGirl: Unless she's Feli. He [[spoiler: was about to kill Bell]] at the bloodbath, after all.

!!Snuff Eitchpy:

-->"I'm only 12 — and I've only been that for about a week — and I'm not that strong or anything. I kind of... I don't have good odds. I'll try to get out and everything, but I'm really not that optimistic about this."\\


* AdorablyPrecociousChild: He's way more composed than his hysterical district partner Feli.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: Ilber kills him by repeatedly smashing his head against a rock.]]
* NonActionGuy
* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]

* {{Tearjerker}}: He is a TWELVE YEAR OLD who [[spoiler:DIED by getting his HEAD bashed in with a ROCK]].
* {{Write Who You Know}} Based on Snuffyofthewind.

!!Antonio Spey:

* AdaptationalVillainy
* AffablyEvil: A pretty amicable guy, despite being a trained killer and all.
* AnAxeToGrind
* AntiVillain: a dark Type IV. He spends more of his time flirting than doing anything actively malevolent, and [[spoiler: never kills anyone outside of the bloodbath.]] Despite this, he still opposes the protagonists.
* BoisterousBruiser: Comes off as one in his interview, acting both amiable and deadly.
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]
* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHim]]
* [[spoiler: EatenAlive / SwallowedWhole / JustDesserts: By a fish muttation. Leads to extreme {{Squick}} when the Careers later catch and carve up the same fish as food.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Briefly mentions his little sister, Fili, at the interviews.
* [[spoiler: ExitPursuedByABear]]

* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* NiceGuy: For a Career.
* PetTheDog: His words to Fili at the interviews.

* WouldHitAGirl: He kills [[spoiler: Saki]] at the bloodbath.
* [[spoiler: UndignifiedDeath: He's eaten alive by a fish muttation while swimming in the river.]]

!!Shiran Kirkland:

* AdaptationalBadass: In his final battle.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: A cute little kid with surprising maturity (at times).
* AllWorkVsAllPlay: Shiran is All Play to Plutonia's All Work (though, in her case, it's more All Worry).
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Igris in ''Horrible'', before getting his own CharacterDevelopment in the sequel.
* AscendedExtra / EarlyBirdCameo: Goes from a cameo in the beginning of ''Horrible'' to a major character in the sequel.

* BigOlEyebrows: This runs in the Kirkland family.
* [[spoiler: BondingOverMissingParents: He bonds with Amer over their missing friend/brother, Igris.]]
* BreakTheCutie: He comes dangerously close to this, almost losing all hope after [[spoiler: being shot with an arrow. Winning the Games and meeting Amer]] seems to help him get somewhat better, though.
* CheerfulChild
* ChekhovsHobby: Good thing he [[spoiler: knows how to swim]]!
* [[spoiler: DarkHorseVictory]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Approaches it after [[spoiler: Plutonia dies]] and he no longer has any reason to keep up his cheerful facade; comes very close to crossing it after [[spoiler: being shot by Ise]].
* DeterminedDefeatist: Knows (or thinks) he's going to die, but keeps putting on a happy face for his family and ally. Even [[spoiler: at the climax, when he's mortally wounded and has to fight an older tribute with an axe]], he fights for his life despite knowing (supposedly) it won't do any good.
* DistressedDude
* FriendlessBackground: like Igris, he was quite lonely back home, especially since [[spoiler: he no longer has an older brother to tease.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: a cute, optimistic, innocent child with blonde hair.
* HeroicBSOD: see DespairEventHorizon.
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity: Acted in this way when he thought Norge was going to kill him. Fortunately for him, it didn't go quite as planned.]]

* NonActionGuy: For the most part.
* ThePollyanna
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Plutonia.
* SiblingYinYang: He is optimistic and friendly, while Igris is cynical and aloof.

* SpoiledSweet
* StepfordSmiler: Type A
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Apparently looks quite similar to Igris.
* [[spoiler: SurvivorsGuilt: Nowhere near as pronounced as with the two other Victors, though.]]
* TalkingToTheDead: Does this on occasion with [[spoiler: Igris]].
* TrueCompanions: With Plutonia, then [[spoiler: Amer in the epilogue]].
* [[spoiler: UnderdogsNeverLose]]
* WeakButSkilled: Definitely not the physically strongest, but he manages to [[spoiler: avoid certain death with his expertise in swimming, as well as kill Norge with some frog poison]].
* WillNotBeAVictim: In his final battle, he first decides to die standing on his own two feet, then takes it one step further and fights back despite the odds. [[spoiler: It works.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Displays surprising maturity in his forgiveness of [[spoiler: Amer during "Difference"]], as well as his brave acceptance of death throughout ''Miserable''.

!!Aurth Unikin:

* BlackCloak / InTheHood: Wears one of these as his district token, believing it enables him to perform magic. [[spoiler: It also leads to his death.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Possibly the series' Most Triumphant Example.

* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHim]]

* [[spoiler: TooDumbToLive: if only he'd taken off the stupid hood…]]
* [[spoiler: UndignifiedDeath: strangled by his own hood when a large bird muttation lifts him off the ground.]]

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: Gives one to poor Snuff.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: After chapter upon chapter of being pushed around by Osso, he [[spoiler: nearly CurbStompBattle Curb Stomps him (and would have if it hadn't been for Magya).]]

* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Osso.
* [[spoiler: ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Gets fed up with Osso's leadership and makes his own (short-lived) alliance with Journs and Ax.]]
* ShipTease / MinionShipping: Arguably with Ax, though she's MasterOfTheMixedMessage, adoring him one moment and snubbing him the next.
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat: Dies this way.]]
* SixthRanger: not initially a member of the Career pack, but joins them during training. Although once he gets into the group, he fulfills the role of TheBrute. This also makes him...

* [[spoiler: TerribleTrio: His new alliance, with him as the head and Ax and Journs as the henchmen.]]
* [[spoiler: TheStarscream: Despite not being TheDragon in Osso's Career pack, he still fulfills this role perfectly, betraying the alliance with intent to take over as leader.]]

* [[spoiler: TwoGirlsAndAGuy: With Ax and Journs.]]
* [[spoiler: UndignifiedDeath: Has his throat ripped out by a puffin.]]

* {{An Ax to Grind}}: Thanks to a certain forgetful Career, Norge manages to acquire a trusty companion to [[spoiler: protect his little brother]] with.
* {{Anti Hero}}: Type III or IV. Okay, so he wants to [[spoiler: protect his little brother]]- that's pretty heroic. But wait…HE JUST [[spoiler: HACKED APART SHEEN'S GUTS]]! And… oh my gosh… now he's trying to kill a thirteen year old?!

* [[spoiler: {{Yandere}}: A brotherly version. Norge goes to extreme lengths to protect his beloved little brother.]]

!!Ise Javik:

* [[spoiler: AloofBigBrother: Aloof Little Half-Brother to Norge.]]
* ChekhovsSkill: His skill in archery is mentioned during training and crops up again at the feast.
* ConflictingLoyalty: Between Norge and his parents. Kill [[spoiler: his half-brother]] to go home or die in his place and break his family's heart?
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Norge.]]
* [[spoiler: DeathByIrony: An extremely dark example; he is killed by the person sworn to protect him.]]
* DefrostingIceKing: To an extent; he wants little to do with Norge when [[spoiler: he first finds out they're related]], but one of the last actions he performs is [[spoiler: treating his half-brother's wounds]]. And then everything goes wrong.

* NonHumanSidekick: Befriends a puffin muttation, nicknamed Mr. Puffin.

* TheStoic
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* WouldHitAGirl: Fights just as hard against Magya as he would against any other opponent. It helps that she was attacking [[spoiler: his brother]] at the time.

* WhatTheHellHero: Calls Norge out for kicking [[spoiler: Sheen]] when he's down.

!!Den Copen:

* AdaptationalVillainy
* [[spoiler: AssholeVictim: Tina may be driven to insanity from the guilt of his death, but it's unlikely the readers feel the same way. He was (probably) about to kill her and Sui, after all.]]
* AnAxeToGrind: Wanted one of these from the bloodbath, but had to settle for a cleaver.
* AffablyEvil: Remains eerily good-natured, even when ordering Sui and Tina to look for victims or advancing slowly on them with a cleaver.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Not evil, of course, but one of the more antagonistic tributes.
* BloodKnight: Though never actually reaching this level, he seemed to have tendencies towards it, and might have gone all the way if [[spoiler: he hadn't been killed early by Tina]].
* BoisterousBruiser: Easygoing, fun-loving, and completely eager to fight.
* CurbStompBattle: When he goes up against Tina.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Not that he's evil, but he specifically says that even though he's willing to kill the competition, he won't sink so low as to torture them. Nor will he force Sui and Tina to kill others, at least "not yet."
* {{Jerkass}}: What he ultimately reveals himself to be.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]

!!Livna Wickham:

-->"Did I ever mention I have the memory of an old-man goldfish?"\\


* {{An Axe To Grind}}: Ties in with {{Meaningful Name}}.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Who dreams about TEA in the Hunger Games?...
* {{Dark Chick}}
* [[spoiler: {{Et Tu Brute}}: THANKS TO THAT STUPID ILBER. ]]

* {{InSeries Nickname}}
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* MinionWithAnFInEvil
* {{Not So Different}}: It's not really explored much in the story, but many a reader has realized that Ax, despite being a Career, isn't too different from many of the other defenseless tributes. In fact, she's quite quirky.
* {{Only Known by Their Nickname}}: Everyone calls her Ax; in fact, she's the one who insisted that they call her this.
* {{Perky Female Minion}}: She has shades of this with both Osso and Ilber.

* {{Absolute Cleavage}}: Her interview dress.
* {{AntiVillain}}: a very well-done Type III.

* NobleTopEnforcer
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery
* {{Ship Tease}}: Her and Osso, OH SO MUCH.
* ShootTheDog: Her entire point of being in the Games.
* {{Team Mom}}
* TokenGoodTeammate: While not necessarily 'good,' she volunteered so that there would be a [[MercyKill Mercy Killer]] among the tributes and is a pretty amiable person when not on the hunt.
* {{Tomboy}}: It's mentioned in Chapter 11 that she'd often dress up in boy's clothes and would prefer sneakers over "glimmering things".
* {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}: Ties into the reason why she wants to go on a killing spree and become the Victor. She wants to make sure nobody feels any pain from the Games- by killing them herself.

!!Feli Vargas:

* AngstySurvivingTwin
* {{Ascended Extra}}: See main trope.
* BreakTheCutie: a process which apparently started with [[spoilers: her sister's]] death.

!!Journs Skyop:

* {{Adorkable}}: She has shades of this- EVEN WHEN SHE'S THINKING OF HOW BLOODSOAKED SKINS ARE PRETTY.
* {{Affably Evil}}: Even while she's wondering on how to kill people in the goriest way possible, you still can't help but think that she's rather nice.
* {{Author Avatar}}: THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NUMBER ONE FAN OF JOURNEY.
* {{Blood Knight}}
* CuteAndPsycho:
--> Antonio: "She's amicable, but curiously bloodthirsty."\\
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}

* [[spoiler: {{Et Tu Brute}}: ILBER BETRAYED HER AND AXXI.]]
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Type II.
* {{Genre Savvy}}: She knows what kind of angles tributes usually take.
* {{Gorn}}: She's a major fangirl of this.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* NightmareFetishist
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: to [[spoiler: Paliss.]]
* {{Ship Tease}}: There's the barest hint of some, between her and Antonio. You can find it in her introductory chapter.

* {{Teen Genius}}: She has shown implications of this when giving advice to Ilber and Ax while they're training.

!!Wy Micra:

* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb]]
* {{Scenery Porn}}: Her narrative is full of artistic imagery.
* {{Ship Tease}}: Magya says that she's been noticing that Seborga's been flirting quite a bit with Wy… Not that it'll really amount to much when the Games start.

!!Bell Gique:

* {{Cool Big Sis}}: Has shades of this to both Feli and her own little sister, Luxy.
* [[spoiler: {{Dropped a Bridge on Her}}: Her death just barely gets mentioned in one or two sentences.]]
* {{Girl Next Door}}
* {{Irony}}: The Tragic kind. See Tearjerker.

!!Saki Beebul:

-->"Ha! You guys can't kill me if you can't even catch me!"\\

* AnnoyingArrows: subverted; she barely notices when [[spoiler: Osso shoots her]] and continues running for a while, but the pain eventually catches up to her and [[spoiler: she collapses long enough for Antonio to kill her.]]
* {{Bookworm}}: She even wishes that she had an electronic device to read during the parade.
* {{Blood Knight}}: Seems to have slight implications of this, as she thinks the Games are cool- especially for the fighting and the blood.
* {{Kick Chick}}: [[spoiler: If she lived long enough, she could've been one.]] She even states that she can kick people as an attack.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb]]
* {{Tomboy}}

* TearsOfFear: Pretty much her defining trait.
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe]]

!!Tina Sinki:

* ActionGirl: For a brief, but incredibly awesome, moment when [[spoiler: she kills Den]].
* {{Adaptational Badass}}: Certainly not ''Hetalia'', as seeing Finland's pretty badbutt in the series. But this version of Finland does far more than Finni from ''Horrible''.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: See the trope on the main page.
* {{Break The Cutie}}
* [[spoiler: {{Broken Bird}} ]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She becomes one when she snaps from the mental pressure of [[spoiler: killing Den]].

* TheLoad: This being the main reason [[spoiler: Sui abandoned her]]
* {{My God What Have I Done}}: After she [[spoiler: kills Den]].
* {{Naive Everygirl}}
* {{Nice Girl}}
* TheOphelia
* PluckyGirl: Can be seen as a variation, both pre- and post-snapping. Beforehand, she's ThePollyanna, and while she does lose her mind, she's not so much broken as cheerfully oblivious to everything around her. Heck, her reaction to confronting an enraged, knife-wielding Magya is to run off giggling.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: pre-Hunger Games
* PowerTrio / TwoGirlsAndAGuy: With Sui and Den.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: She and Sui flee Den's alliance when he gets a little too insistent on killing. Unfortunately, it only makes things worse.

* {{Cloudcuckoolanders Minder}}: Or, rather, the {{Keet}}'s minder.
* {{Extreme Doormat}}: Has shades of it.
--> "I really don't think I'm going to win this. I'm not sure why I'm going to try. I don't know. Just because I should. Because my family and my mentor told me to."\\
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When she and Shiran find a waterfall, Plutonia worries about how fast it's going. And then, some chapters later, [[spoiler: you see how she dies…]]
* [[spoiler: {{Forgotten Fallen Friend}}: Shiran pretty much forgets about her after she drowns.]]
* {{Grew A Spine}}: Somewhere along the Games, she gets enough backbone to freak out on Shiran when he does some potentially dangerous stuff.
* [[spoiler: KillItWithWater]]: she [[spoiler: drowns]] as a result of staying behind to warn Shiran of the impending danger.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: {{Kill The Cutie}}]]
* {{Lovable Coward}}: And nobody really blames her for it.
* {{Nice Girl}}
* {{No One Gets Left Behind}}: Used for maximum [[{{Tearjerker}} Tearjerking]] effect.
* {{Not So Above It All}}: Shiran points this out when he catches Plutonia splashing water on herself- the same water that she was previously scared of. Plutonia, being her usual {{Adorkable}} self, starts getting flustered.
* {{Odd Friendship}}: She's a {{Shrinking Violet}} and Shiran's a {{Keet}}. This could be a platonic {{Opposites Attract}} situation.
* {{Plucky Girl}}: [[spoiler: In her last moments, when she refuses to abandon Shiran.]]
* {{Properly Paranoid}}
* PuppyLove: Surprisingly averted. The most you get from their relationship is an entirely platonic, sweet relationship that warms your heart.
* {{The Quiet One}}
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* {{Shrinking Violet}}
* [[spoiler: {{Super Drowning Skills}}: Played horrifyingly straight and completely justified.]]
* {{True Companions}}: With Shiran.

!!Sui Holmes:

* ActionGirl: Towards the end.

* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Briefly, to Tina, until she decides [[spoiler: that she can't bear the strain and abandons her.]]
* 'Determinator'
* DirtyBusiness: Her thoughts on [[spoiler: abandoning Tina]]. She feels she has to do it, but that doesn't stop her from being consumed by guilt for nearly the rest of the fic.
* EmotionlessGirl: Rarely displays open emotion, even when racked with guilt over [[spoiler: abandoning Tina]]. It's only through her inner monologue that we realize how she feels.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Her first impression of Den is that he's not trustworthy. Tina really should have listened to her.
* GenderFlip
* KickTheDog: highly YMMV, but one could see [[spoiler: her abandonment of a mentally-scarred Tina]] as this.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: MercifulMinion: Den sends her out to find tributes to kill, but she can't bring herself to report the young and obviously terrified Shiran and Plutonia to him.]]

* TheUnintelligible: Tina has to translate her mumbling for Den.

* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[FryingPanOfDoom Ladle of Doom]]

* OnlySaneMan: in the Unsurvivable career pack, along with Cisca.
* PetTheDog: his [[spoiler: sparing of Riben]] and the concern he displays for his family members.

* TheBrute
* [[{{CoolBigSis}} Cool Big Bro]]: implied to be this to his little sister, Bella.
* TheDragon: his main role in the Unsurvivable career pack, though he vies for the title of BigBad with Rica and has some aspects of TheBrute as well.

* PipePain
* PsychopathicManchild
* StepfordSmiler: Type C
* VillainousFriendship: seemingly between him and Cisca, though [[spoiler: she’s only using it to her advantage.]]

* TooHappyToLive
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe]]

!!Riben Wang:

* ActualPacifist: Is extremely opposed to killing, due to the fact that [[spoiler: his sister died in a previous game.]] True to his beliefs, he never raises a finger against another tribute in the arena, [[spoiler: which has dire consequences for him when he wins without killing.]]
* AscendedExtra / Early Bird Cameo: He gets a brief mention in China's first POV in ''Horrible'', in which she states he's the only male she's known to [[NonActionGuy never do anything 'manly.']]
* [[{{BigBrotherWorship}} Big Sister Worship]]: He greately admired his big sister, China.
* {{Bilingual Bonus}}: His name is "Japan" in Chinese.

* DespairEventHorizon / HeroicBSOD: Lost all joy in life when [[spoiler: his sister was killed.]]
* DistressedDude: see Actual Pacifist entry above. Ermine often has to defend him and Italo from muttations and other tributes.
* [[spoiler: DoomedByCanon]]: It’s inevitable that [[spoiler: he’ll die sometime before the end of the rebellion,]] seeing as he is (obviously) not among [[spoiler: the surviving Victors mentioned in Mockingjay.]] In fact, it’s hinted that he’s [[spoiler: the District 6 male who dies in the Quarter Quell during [[{{TheHungerGames}} Catching Fire.]]]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: His ultimate fate - the Capitol punishes his defiance by killing off anyone he becomes emotionally attached to, dooming him to live without the most basic of human relationships.]]
* {{Hikikomori}}: He was this for a while after [[spoiler: China's death]].
** To elaborate: [[spoiler: losing his sister]] depressed him so much that he usually confined himself to his room.
* HonorBeforeReason: Vows not to kill in order to uphold [[spoiler: his sister’s]] memory. This extends to himself [[spoiler: refraining from suicide]] even after he has literally nothing left to live for.
* IllBoy: was often sick at home, likely due to getting so little exercise and sunlight.
* IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure: the Capitol [[spoiler: executes his parents and anyone else he grows close to]] because he [[spoiler: won the Games without killing anyone.]]
* JapanesePoliteness
* TheLoad: Begins to feel that he is this to the alliance, due to having to rely on others since [[spoiler: the death of his sister]] emotionally crippled him.
* NonActionGuy: both he and Italo serve as the NonActionGuy to Ermine’s ActionGirl.
* NotAfraidToDie: Ever since [[spoiler: the death of his sister,]] he sees no real purpose in living and resigns himself to dying at the bloodbath rather than killing to survive. When [[spoiler: he’s buried by an avalanche,]] he thinks it'll be better this way because [[spoiler: he'll get to see his sister again.]] Unfortunately for him, [[spoiler: he survives.]]
* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Ermine and Italo.
* TheQuietOne: Typically avoids company, due to his emotionally fragile nature.
* [[spoiler: SoleSurvivor]]
* TraumaCongaLine: Obviously applies to everyone in the series, but it's especially pronounced with him. Let's see, [[spoiler: his sister is murdered when he's five years old,]] he's reaped for the Hunger Games at thirteen, he makes allies but [[spoiler: one is killed while the other withers away from poison and a HeroicBSOD]], he [[spoiler: wins the Games but is punished for not killing anybody by being forced to watch his parents tortured to death while his father screams that he hates him]], he finally meets a girl he loves [[spoiler: only to have her executed as well,]] ends up [[spoiler: a broken shell of a man, forbidden to form close relationships with anyone and addicted to morphling,]] and is hinted to [[spoiler: die in the Quarter Quell.]] ''Ouch.''
* [[spoiler: UnderdogsNeverLose]]: [[spoiler: though how much he actually 'wins' is debatable.]]

[[folder: ''Unsurvivable'' Males, District 7 - 12]]

!!Turk Adnan:

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: His little brother, Heracles, seems to be this to him. They squabble even during the post-reaping goodbyes!
* BloodKnight / BoisterousBruiser: He enjoys fighting just for the sake of fighting, and afterwards lets his defeated opponents into his alliance rather than killing them. Deconstructed when [[spoiler: he’s a finalist]] and realizes it’s really a matter of life and death now.
* CurbStompBattle: Egypt can’t hold his own against him, leading to Turk claiming him as his ‘property’ rather than his ally.
** His fight against [[spoiler: Nada]] also counts.
* DumbMuscle: Impressive in combat, but more than a little dense. [[DeadpanSnarker Romania]] lampshades it often.
* HonorBeforeReason: Often gives his opponents an advantage if he doesn’t feel the fight is fair, such as letting Romania have the first hit and urging [[spoiler: Nada]] to fight harder.

* TheChick / TheLancer: In his alliance with Ermine and Riben.

* DistressedDude: Ermine has her hands full keeping him and Riben from harm.
* FragileSpeedster: Physically very weak, but Ermine doubts that even the Careers could catch up to him when he’s running.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Lets his guard down with [[spoiler: Cisca, even though she’s a Career.]] It helps that [[spoiler: she’s untrained and very persuasive,]] but he still should have known better than to trust a stranger so far in the Games. [[spoiler: It costs him his life.]]
* [[spoiler: [[{{KilledMidSentence}} Killed Mid Word]]]]: While calling for Ermine.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* TheLoad: He doesn't do much more than eat, sleep, whine and cook in the alliance.

* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler: Dies this way.]]

* FriendOrFoe: Due to the two girls’ similar appearances, he mistakes Nada for Rica one night and attacks her before realizing she’s his ally.

* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* TokenMinority: One of the few black characters in the series, along with Philan, Shaye and Egypt.
* WouldHitAGirl: Seems to relish the opportunity to fight Rica. He’s far from the type to hurt a girl in cold blood, though.

* {{Buttmonkey}}: Pretty much every one of his appearances involves him getting beaten up or pushed around by his allies. He's also humiliated in the tribute parade when his stylists decide to have him go naked.
* CurbStompBattle: Egypt can’t hold his own against Turk, leading to the latter claiming him as his ‘property’ rather than his alliance.
* [[spoiler: DoomedByCanon]]: In The Hunger Games,[[spoiler: District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so it's certain from the start that he's going to die.]]
* [[spoiler: [[{{DroppedABridgeOnHim}} Dropped A Chunk Of Ice On Him]]]]
* [[spoiler: KillItWithIce]]: [[spoiler: he's crushed when part of an ice cave falls in on him.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]

* MarkOfShame / SlaveBrand: Turk carves a ‘T’ into his cheek in the heat of battle to mark him as his ‘property.’
* NonActionGuy: Apart from a brief [[CurbStompBattle fight]] with Turk.

** Subverted with [[spoiler: Cisca's death.]] Ermine seems shocked at the violent extremes to which she went, but still feels [[spoiler: Cisca]] deserved it, and is more concerned with [[spoiler: Italo’s death]] than anything else.

* ShipTease: Exactly how she feels about Italo is never stated. She clearly cares deeply for him beneath her harsh exterior, to the point of [[spoiler: going into a HeroicBSOD over his death]] and saying he is all she is fighting for. Riben states that she “loved him,” but doesn’t elaborate.
** WordOfGod has stated that Ermine “didn’t think about it too much,” but that a romantic interpretation of her feelings is definitely an option.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Treats Italo with uncompromising severity, but shows great affection for him deep down. She’s also quite kind to Riben.
* SuperOCD: She organizes supplies to calm herself down in stressful situations. This later comes back in an extremely disturbing way when she [[spoiler: kills Cisca, removing her teeth, eyes and fingers in a neat, symmetrical fashion.]]
* ToughLove: All the time towards Italo. For all the times she criticizes him, it's clearly done to help him survive.
* VillainCorner: Starts to fear she is entering it [[spoiler: when she worries she might murder her allies.]]
* WomenAreWiser: Acts as TheSmartGuy in her alliance, compared to the ditzy Italo.

!!Nada Ott:

* {{Adorkable}}
* ApologeticAttacker: To Turk, even when [[spoiler: she's fighting for her life.]]
* BadassBystander: Interferes in the fight between Holland and the bear muttation [[spoiler: just in time to save the girl's life.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: She jumps in and attacks the polar bear’s AchillesHeel just when it’s about to kill Holland, [[spoiler: giving her time to finish it off.]]
* CanadaEh
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Amantius and Ivan were planning to take turns injuring her until she finally died, so they could know for sure whose kill she was.
* DamselInDistress: Throughout the Games, apart from the aforementioned BigDamnHeroes moment.
* FragileFlower: Is close to tears when Holland tells her they're not friends.
* FragileSpeedster: Not the best fighter, but she can outrun a bear and the Careers (though they ''were'' distracted by fighting Cuba.)
* GenderFlip: Nyotalia Canada.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Is blonde and one of the sweetest tributes in the series.
* NonHumanSidekick: a polar bear cub creatively named 'white bear.' This gets her into quite a bit of trouble when [[spoiler: its {{Mama Bear}} comes along.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: [[spoiler: By Turk.]]
** [[spoiler: KillTheCutie]]
* ShrinkingViolet
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Her dynamic with Holland, she being the girly girl.
* TookALevelInBadass: The aforenentioned BigDamnHeroes moment.
* TrueCompanions: Was edging towards with with Cuba.

!!Yana Sappe:

* BigOlUnibrow: Amantius notes that she has one.
* [[spoiler: DoomedByCanon]]: In ''The Hunger Games'', District 12 [[spoiler: has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics)]], so you pretty much know [[spoiler: she's going to die.]]
* ForgottenFallenFriend: [[spoiler: To Romania,]] although she does mention her twice briefly.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt / SacrificialLamb / WeHardlyKnewYe]]

[[folder: ''Brutal'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Alf Meric:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Not exactly the "hero" from ''Hetalia''.
* {{Arch Enemy}}: Of Thew.
* {{Attention Whore}}: Obnoxiously so.
* {{Big Eater}}: He goes through several days' rations for the entire Career pack quite efficiently on his own.
* {{Blond Guys are Evil}}: Or, Very Light Brunette Guys are Evil.
* {{Boisterous Bruiser}}: Loud and as eager for a fight as any other Career.
* {{The Brute}}: In ''Brutal'''s career group.
* {{Dumb Muscle}}: One chapter title is "Conclusion: Alf's Still an Idiot."
* {{Eagleland}}: Type 2, full-stop.
* {{Evil Counterpart}}: To Thew.
* {{Evil Gloating}}: "I bet I could kill
Due to length, this guy with one punch to the head."
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: His fight with Japan, though the latter is noticeably more sympathetic.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: In his intro chapter, he says he has a rocky relationship with his father after his parents' divorce caused his dad to drift away from him. This leads to [[spoiler: his death]], as he deliberately volunteers to annoy the old man.
* {{Glory Hound}}: Differs from {{Glory Seeker}}s Lude and Japan in that he employs no discipline, restraint, or honour in his quest for recognition.
* {{Heroic Wannabe}} Motivated by a desire
page had to be his district's hero, though not in split. To find the traditional sense of the word.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Although he is tagged as the main character from the ''Hetalia'' part of the crossover.
* {{Jerkass}}: Comes with the loud-and-selfish bit.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off
entries for Real}}: He's killed off characters:

[[Characters/BrutalSeriesBrutal Go here
for real.]]
* {{Large Ham}}: "And then, I can be the hero!"
** One of the author's sketches actually shows him reciting the large ham line.
* {{Neck Snap}}: Kills [[spoiler: Franse]] this way.
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}: Kills [[spoiler: Wynd]] this way.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Spends most of his time after the bloodbath being a failure. Then [[spoiler: Japan underestimates him and is forced into a {{Better to Die than Be Killed}} situation. Subverted, in that Alf is killed as well in the attempt.]]
* {{Obfuscating Stupidity}}: At one point, Lude begins to suspect that his entire ghost paranoia is an act designed to fool and manipulate the others. In reality, he's overthinking things - Alf's really that stupid.
* [[spoiler: {{Off With His Head}}: Japan cuts off his head after killing him.]]
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Vivi gives one to him, detailing why he isn't worthy to be in the Career pack.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to Thew.
* {{Small Name Big Ego}}: Egotastic, from a family of no particular repute [[spoiler: that's certainly not given any more because of his Games.]]
* {{Unskilled but Strong}}: Goes for the kill with his bare hands.
* {{Villainous Glutton}}: A notorious BigEater and TheBrute.
* {{Villains Want Mercy}}: Begs with Thew, who he thinks is a ghost, not to kill him.
* {{Well Done Son Guy}}: Inverted. Rather than trying to win his father's respect, he deliberately volunteers for the Games in order to tick him off.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Wynd]] at the bloodbath.
* {{Why Did It Have to be Snakes}}: He has a crippling fear of ghosts, which Thew exploits in a {{Crowning Moment of Funny}}.

!!Lude Ermany:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Germany's not exactly the bad guy of ''Hetalia''.
* {{All Work vs All Play}}: The All Work to Ciano's All Play in the 4th What If.
* {{Anti Villain}}: Type I. He has no qualms with being a Career, but has a softer side as seen with his interactions with Ciano (especially in the 4th What If) and [[spoiler: a dying Japan]].
* [[spoiler: {{Apologetic Attacker}}: [[{{Tearjerker}} "Goodbye, friend."]] ]]
* {{Big Bad}}: serves as this for the Brutal career pack.
* {{Blond Guys are Evil}}: Has light blonde hair and no qualms about killing.
* {{Conflicting Loyalties}}: Between Ciano and the Career pack. Exploited by Japan when [[spoiler: he makes him kill Ciano]].
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: Ciano]] serves as this to him in [[spoiler: the fourth What If.]]
* {{Dirty Business}}: How he sees [[spoiler: having to kill Ciano]], although he doesn't regret it afterwards so much as before and as he does it.
* {{Epic Flail}}: His signature weapon is a morningstar: a big, spiky ball on a chain.
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: His battle with [[spoiler: Russia (though more Evil versus {{Obliviously Evil}}.)]]
* {{Germanic Depressives}}/{{Germanic Efficiency}}: Will not put up with slackery, and is a version of Germany.
* {{Glory Seeker}}: He is a Career, after all.
* {{Heel Face Door Slam}}: In the fourth What If.
* {{Heel Realization}}: Starts to have one in the fourth What If.
* {{If Youre So Evil Eat this Kitten}}: The Career pack tests him this way with Ciano. [[spoiler: He passes.]]
* [[spoiler: {{It Has Been an Honor}}: Says this to the dying Japan.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: He dies at Russia's hands.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Merciful Minion}}]]: twice in the fourth What If.
* {{Odd Friendship}}: With Ciano.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: In the Career back, along with Japan.
* {{Perpetual Frowner}}: Given his teammates, not that surprising.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: Several times: when he tolerates Ciano's antics in training, when he [[spoiler: hesitates to kill him]], and when he assures [[spoiler: a dying Japan that {{It Has Been an Honor}}]]. The Fourth What If, of course, is all about this.
* {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}: Trained [[WordofGod from birth]] to be a Career.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}} Blue Oni to Ciano.
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: Is the latter in his ''What If'' alliance with Ciano, though he ends up as {{Not So Stoic}}.
* {{The Stoic}}: His emotions are neutral and angry.
* {{Not So Stoic}}: In the fourth What If.
* {{Sugar and Ice Personality}}: Only displays his softer side to Ciano and, at one point, Japan.
* {{Villainous BSOD}}: Starts losing it in the fourth What If once his empathy for Ciano causes him to view his competitors in a different light.
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type I just hinted at between him and Japan.
* {{Villainous Valor}}: Displays courage and ingenuity in battle, particularly against the fire crickets. Averted in [[spoiler: his final battle, when he's too cold to fight back against Russia]].
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Tiee]] at the bloodbath and [[spoiler: Liet]] in the fourth What If.

!!Thew Canda:

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}: Switz throws him to the wolves, thinking he's dead. He's not.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Bespectacled and shy.
* {{And Then What}}: Realizes he has no idea what to do after scaring Alf with his ghost plan.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}/{{Beware the Quiet Ones}}: Quiet, inconspicuous, and will not hesitate to poison your water source. If you're a Career, of course.
* {{Brains and Brawn}}: Brains to Gil's brawn in the 2nd What If.
* {{Buttmonkey}}: He certainly doesn't go through the Games easily.
* {{Canada Eh}}: Fulfills many Canadian stereotypes, being polite, unassuming, and overshadowed by America (Alf). Lampshaded when he describes his headache as feeling like he's been hit in the head with a hockey puck.
* {{Cloudcuckoolanders Minder}}: Pity poor Thew when he's allied with Ciano.
* {{Corrupt the Cutie}}: One could look at his unrepentant killing of [[spoiler: Careers]] in this way.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Subverted. Being eaten alive by wolves can't be the most pleasant way to go ... but it helps that he was unconscious the whole time.]]
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Internally.
* [[spoiler: {{Death Faked For You}}: A series of extraordinary coincidences leads to almost everyone believing he's been killed. Unfortunately, this doesn't last long.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Death by Irony}}: Killed offhandedly after working to make himself memorable; not to mention that an inconvenient cannon firing led to his death while a convenient cannon firing saved his life earlier.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Disney Death}}: A cannon fires just as Alf knocks him out, tricking the Careers (not to mention the viewers) into believing he's dead.]]
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Is certainly not an action guy.
* {{The Dog Bites Back}}: How else to describe his hilarious revenge on Alf?
* [[spoiler: {{Dropped a Bridge on Him}}: Dies very suddenly.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Eaten Alive}}]]: Mercifully, he's unconscious as the time.
* {{He Who Fights Monsters}}: Could be seen as this. He says he hates Careers for the suffering they inflict, but regrets [[spoiler: not being able to kill Alf himself]], and takes pride in bringing death to someone who 'deserves' it. Though to be fair, that someone was a borderline psychopath.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: He dies via wolf pack.]]
* {{Knight Templar}}: Could be seen as a mild version of this with {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}.
* [[spoiler: {{Murder by Mistake}}: Intended to poison Alf, but ended up taking out Vivi instead.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: Even if you subscribe to his {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}, he's still a prime example of this at first.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: His kill certainly has nothing to do with his physique.
* {{Not So Different}}: With a bit of {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}, he can be seen as this to Alf. Although Thew despises Alf for his remorseless killing of others, he himself does the same thing to Careers.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: When he interacts with Ciano and Alf, this isn't hard to achieve.
* {{Pay Evil Unto Evil}}: His justification for [[spoiler: killing Vivi]].
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}} Blue Oni to both Alf and Ciano.
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: Has this dynamic in his alliance with Gil, as well as when compared/contrasted with Alf. He is the Sensitive Guy.
* {{Shrinking Violet}}: He apparently can't ask a girl out without panicking and running away.
* {{Took a Level in Badass}}: When he [[spoiler: poisons the Careers' water supply]].
* {{Villain Corner}}: Starts edging into it after [[spoiler: killing Vivi]], not that he realizes it.
* {{Weak but Skilled}}: Physically weak, but cunning enough to take down a Career and good enough at going unnoticed to make it all the way to [[spoiler: fifth place]].
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: What's that you want, Thew? Recognition? Well, we'll just have to [[spoiler: kill you off in the most offhanded and unceremonious way possible]], then, won't we?

!!Japan Hond:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: One of the protagonists from ''Hetalia''.
* {{Anti Villain}}: Type I. Lives for the glory he gets from killing, but isn't an overall cruel person in his day-to-day behavior, and places greater emphasis on honouring his district's name than taking lives.
* [[spoiler: {{Better to Die than Be Killed}}: Chooses to stab both himself and Alf rather than be strangled to death or rescued.]]
* {{Brainy Brunette}}: Both intelligent and black-haired.
* {{The Dragon}}: To {{Big Bad}} Lude in the ''Brutal'' Career pack.
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: His fight with Alf, though he is noticeably more sympathetic than his opponent.
* [[spoiler: {{Face Death with Dignity}}: Takes his own life to do so.]]
* {{Glass Cannon}}: Insanely fast and skilled in swordplay, but admits in his intro chapter that his defence capabilities are minimal, as he's not as muscular as the average Career.
* {{Glory Seeker}}: Honour is his number one priority.
* [[spoiler: {{Go Out With a Smile}}: He's quite happy when Lude says it's been an honour to fight with him.]]
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: A defining trait of his. Most notable when [[spoiler: Alf has him in a stranglehold and he chooses to kill himself rather than face the shame of being rescued by Lude]].
* {{Inscrutable Oriental}}: Doesn't have many facial expressions.
* {{Japanese Politeness}}: In contrast to the rest of the Careers, he rarely has a harsh word for anyone, even "trying not to sound condescending" when dealing with Alf's stupidity. He also "briefly apologizes" for not handing out water earlier in the 4th What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By his own sword.]]
* {{Master Swordsman}}: His WeaponOfChoice is a katana.
* {{Ninja}}: His stealth and agility are certainly reminiscent of one; not to mention this was his angle at the interviews.
* {{Off With His Head}}: Specializes in killing this way.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Along with Lude.
* {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}: Very caught up in the Career system.
* {{The Quiet One}}: Definitely the least outspoken of the ''Brutal'' Careers, though that's not exactly saying much.
* [[spoiler: {{Taking You With Me}}: Rather than allow Alf to strangle him to death, he plunges his sword through his own heart – "and the heart behind it."]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't do much smiling or yelling.
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type I just hinted at between him and Lude.
* {{Villainous Valor}}: Would do anything for the honour of his family.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Decapitates [[spoiler: Ukraine]], when she's completely unaware and (relatively) defenceless, no less.

!!Franse Bonnefoy:

* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Poor guy.
* BadassBystander: Actually takes action at the bloodbath.
* {{Casanova Wannabe}}: He doesn't gain much ground in his pre-Games flirting.
* {{Chivalrous Pervert}}: Despite his constant flirting, he actually does seem to care about the people he's wooing, to the point of [[spoiler: dying for one of them]].
* {{Handsome Lech}}: Flirts but is described as attractive.
* [[spoiler: {{Heroic Sacrifice}}: Dies trying to buy Wynd some time to escape. Unfortunately, it doesn't work, making this a...]]
** [[spoiler: {{Senseless Sacrifice}}]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: At Alf's hands.]]
* {{Long Haired Pretty Boy}}: Lampshaded when Maria mocks his 'girl hair.'
* [[spoiler: {{Neck Snap}}: Courtesy of Alf.]]
* {{Prince Charming Wannabe}}: Flirts with almost all the female tributes in his intro chapter. Their reactions range from mildly flattered to disinterested to completely livid.
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: The first ''Hetalia'' character to die.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: Doesn't get much screentime before he dies.]]

!!Ciano Idalya:

* {{Adorkable}}: Completely at odds with social conventionalities, yet adorable in spite (or because) of it.
* {{Aint Too Proud to Beg}}: Type 2; he pleads for his life when the Careers have him cornered. Rather than {{Moral Dissonance}}, it's a {{Tearjerker}}.
* {{All Work vs All Play}}: The All Play to Lude's All Work in the 4th What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Cutie}}: In the moments before his death, which of course means...]]
** [[spoiler: {{Kill the Cutie}}]]
* {{Cheerful Child}}: Is described as acting like a five-year-old.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: BIG TIME. After all, what else is there to do in the Hunger Games than sit down with a nice bowl of pasta?
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Engulfed and burned alive by a swarm of red-hot crickets in the fourth What If.]]
* CynicismCatalyst: serves as this to [[spoiler: Lude]] in [[spoiler: the fourth What If. Their friendship and his violent death causes Lude to question the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy strict]] [[LoveIsAWeakness values]] he's believed in all his life.]]
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Doesn't have much strength.
* {{Dude Looks Like a Lady}}: his stylists originally thought they had been given the District 6 girl instead of the boy!
* [[spoiler: {{Forgotten Fallen Friend}}: One of the few examples in the series to be played straight. Apart from in the fourth what if, Lude never dwells on killing him after the deed is done. Thew mourns briefly when seeing his face in the sky, but isn't too troubled afterwards.]]
* {{Fragile Speedster}}: Not strong, yet flees like crazy.
* {{Horrible Judge of Character}}: Yes, let's go make friends with the all-business tribute trained to kill you.
* {{Keet}}: Cheerful despite being in the Hunger games.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: At Lude's hands.]]
* {{The Load}}: To everyone he's allied with.
* {{Lovable Coward}}: Flees from everything... adorably.
* {{Dirty Coward}}: YMMV, but some reviewers definitely thought so when he left Thew behind while running from Careers. Though, to his credit, he thought Thew was behind him the entire time.
* {{Morality Pet}}/{{Morality Chain}}: To Lude.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: Not the strong type.
* {{Odd Friendship}}: With Lude.
* {{Picky Eater}}: Refuses to eat cooked snake when he can request pasta.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: Is in the Hunger Games but stays perky.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to both Thew and Lude.
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lion}}: Dies later on in the story.]]
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: The Sensitive Guy to Lude in the fourth What If.
* {{Skewed Priorities}}: Seems more concerned with only getting risotto for breakfast than with staying alive.
* [[spoiler: {{Slashed Throat}}: Dies this way.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Spared by Adaptation}}: For a while in the fourth What If.]]
* {{Tears of Fear}}: When captured by the Careers.
* [[spoiler: {{Too Happy to Live}}: Always cheerful, until just before his death.]]
* {{Too Dumb to Live}}: Relies on his mentor to send him pasta rather than eating the food Thew picked out.
* {{Trademark Favorite Food}}: Pasta!
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: The fourth What If is built around this. [[spoiler: He is spared from an early death ... only to receive one far more horrific.]]

[[folder: ''Brutal'' Males, District 7 - 12]]

!!Switz Wingly

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}]]: throws an unconscious [[spoiler: Thew]] to a pursuing wolf pack, thinking [[spoiler: he]] is dead, in order to buy him and Liet some time.
* {{Badass}}: he can and will go through hell to protect his beloved sister.
** {{Badass in Distress}}: when the exhaustion and hunger of sacrificing his meals for Liet begin to take their toll on him.
* BerserkButton: threatening his sister, leaving his alliance, reappearing after you leave his alliance, looking like you might want to threaten his sister…
* BigBrotherInstinct: towards Liet.
* CoolBigBro: towards Liet.
* DeadpanSnarker: at times, such as after being told he could not volunteer as a male tribute had already been selected:
--> "Well, if you’d rather dress me up in drag and pass me off for a female tribute, try that.”
* DeclarationOfProtection: towards Liet.
* [[spoiler: EatenAlive / CruelAndUnusualDeath / EverythingsWorseWithWolves]]: in the second and fourth What Ifs. [[spoiler: Unlike Thew in the main storyline, he’s not given the mercy of being unconscious during it.]]
* EtTuBrute?: acts as if Austria’s flight from the alliance was a great betrayal.
* EyeScream: gouges an alligator’s eyes with scissors to make it let go of Liet’s leg.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: throughout the entire story, he is calmly accepting of his death so long as it means Liet’s survival.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile]]: gives Liet one last smile after [[spoiler: TakingtheBullet for her.]]
* TheHero / TheBigGuy: in his alliance with Liet and Austria.
* HeroicResolve: near the end of the story he is almost too weakened to move, but when [[spoiler: Russia is about to kill Liet,]] he finds the energy to [[spoiler: push her out of the way and take the bullet himself.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: basically everything he does, [[spoiler: including his final fate.]]
* HurtingHero: accepts the burdens of injury and starvation to keep his sister alive and puts on a smile so she won't see the toll she's taking on him.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: At the hands of Russia.]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: was entirely willing to kill Austria and Veta just for encountering their alliance, all to protect Liet. Justified, as they’re in a kill-or-be-killed situation and she’s more or less defenceless.
* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Austria and Liet.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion: One of the last tributes to die.]]
* SelfSacrificeScheme: plans to kill himself so that Liet can win the Games.
* [[spoiler: SenselessSacrifice]]: he [[spoiler: Takes the Bullet for Liet near the end of the Games, but this leaves her without a protector against an advancing Russia.]] Justified in that [[spoiler: he probably wasn’t thinking clearly and it’s really all he could do in the moment.]]
* TriggerHappy: with his bow and arrows.
* WhatTheHellCostumingDepartment: doesn’t think much of being dressed up in high heels and a too-tight suit during the interviews.

!!Austria Edel:

* BrainyBrunette: His one sellable trait is knowing edible plants.
* ChastityCouple: even after [[spoiler: being 'married' to Veta,]] though justified because they're on national television.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] contributes greatly to [[spoiler: Veta's BrokenBird status in the epilogue.]]
* DistressedDude: Veta has a history of finishing fights for him.
* ElegantClassicalMusician: While a broke orphan, he's at his best playing piano.
* EtTuBrute: Switz acts as though his flight from their alliance was a great betrayal.
* FriendlessBackground: he states that, apart from Veta and the music store owner, he has no loved ones to visit him after his reaping.
* GoThroughMe: places himself between Switz and Veta at one point during a tense standoff, when the former is threatening to shoot.
* [[spoiler: HappilyMarried]]: with Veta, [[spoiler: for about a day]].
* HeartwarmingOrphan: in backstory; he was raised in an orphanage but found a father-figure of sorts in the music store owner who nurtured his skill at the piano.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: At Gil's hands.]]
* TheLancer / TheSmartGuy: in the alliance with Switz and Liet.
* TheLoad: to both Switz and Veta.
* LoveHurts: especially when you're reaped alongside your fiancee.
* [[spoiler: LoveCannotOvercome]]: [[spoiler: he dies and Veta lives on alone and heartbroken.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: he has shades of this with Veta. She's brash, determined and a good fighter, while he's refined, artistic and poor at combat.
* {{Megane}}: Picked up glasses from the street at some point.
* [[spoiler: MyOwnPrivateIDo]]: with Veta.
* NonActionGuy: Not a fighter.
* OfficialCouple: with Veta.
* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Switz and Liet.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat]]: [[spoiler: dies this way.]]
* SoHappyTogether: his and Veta's [[spoiler: makeshift wedding]] and the scene where they warm their hands over the fire together serve as this for the couple.
* StarCrossedLovers: with Veta.
* StoicSpectacles: Has glasses and doesn't tend to express much emotion.
* [[spoiler: TogetherInDeath]]: with Veta [[spoiler: in the second What If.]]
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: to Veta, until everything goes horribly wrong.
* [[spoiler: WartimeWedding]]: he and Veta are [[spoiler: married halfway through the Games]].

!!Russia Bragins:

* ActualPacifist: At first. In backstory, he refused to lift a finger against Vahn even when being beaten up, and Toris notes that he was reluctant to go to combat stations in training.
* AntiVillain: Type II; it's clear that he's been mentally destroyed by [[spoiler: his sister's death]].
* AxCrazy: After his FaceHeelTurn.
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: He is the Victor of the second and fourth What Ifs.]]
* BerserkButton: He really [[IncrediblyLamePun lost his head]] when [[spoiler: his sister Ukraine was decapitated.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's stuck between this and BitchInSheepsClothing.
* BigBad: Arguably the closest thing ''Brutal'' has to one.
* BigLittleBrother: stated to be taller than all the tributes, presumably including his elder sister Ukraine.
* BloodKnight: After his FaceHeelTurn.
* BreakTheCutie / CorruptTheCutie: As happens to most cuties in the series.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: An extremely dark version.
* CurbStompBattle: vs. [[spoiler: Lude]]. Justified, as he's accustomed to the cold of the crater while [[spoiler: the career]] isn't.
* CuteAndPsycho: Stays cheerful while dreaming of cutting up people.
* CynicismCatalyst: subverted. It seems that [[spoiler: Ukraine's death]] will be this for him, and while it does turn him into a far darker character, his resulting persona is [[StepfordSmiler far less]] [[PutTheLaughterInSlaughter cynical]] than a straight example.
* [[spoiler: DeathEqualsEmotion / DyingAsYourself: Arguable, as his last thoughts were for the sister he'd barely remembered after her death.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Passes over it in a matter of sentences after [[spoiler: his sister dies.]]
* EatTheDog: He kills and eats a cute pony muttation. Justified, as this is the Hunger Games.
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Slicing children to ribbons is ''fun''!
* FaceHeelTurn: After [[spoiler: Ukraine's death]].
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: Seems innocent enough from the outside, apart from that giant knife...
* FreudianExcuse: Has a history of being bullied.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He refused to go to any battle stations before the Games but ends up [[spoiler: getting to second place]].
* [[spoiler: Go Out With a Smile: Although not stated, it's quite likely, given the nature of his last thoughts.]]
* HypocriticalHumor: "I guess she's kind of crazy, then!"
* IgnoredEpiphany: He briefly wonders whether he's just as bad as the people who killed his sister, but quickly dismisses this idea as ridiculous.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: He wouldn't hurt a fly until after he snaps.
* InsaneTrollLogic: His mind seems to run on this after he snaps. For instance, he justifies [[spoiler: killing Toris because "the Games are better off without his pessimism,"]] and dismisses the idea of being NotSoDifferent from a Career because "nobody cries over the people [he's] killed." The fact that his victims have families who are undoubtedly crying at the moment never seems to occur to him.
* KarmaHoudini: The second and fourth What Ifs.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: by Veta.]]
* LaughingMad / GigglingVillain: Or at least Cheerfully Humming Villian.
* LunaticLoophole: Averted in the core series, but [[spoiler: played straight in the fourth What If.]]
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Eager to slice and dice.
* NotSoDifferent: see Ignored Epiphany.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Never considers how much he's hurting people.
* PowerBornOfMadness: Not a threat until after he snaps.
* PsychopathicManchild: Keeps his innocent optimism despite running about looking for victims.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: Out to kill with a big smile.
* RussianGuySuffersMost: Certainly psychologically.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: was given to him by his sister.
* [[spoiler: SoleSurvivor: Of the second and fourth What Ifs.]] A scrapped epilogue to these, which eventually ended up as the arguable tie-in "Asylum", ended up in him being thrown into, what else, an asylum.
* [[spoiler: SparedByAdaptation: Twice!]]
* StepfordSmiler: Type C.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Never did anything against other tributes or bullies before.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: After [[spoiler: his sister is killed]], he's out to kill everyone.
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler: Kills Liet and attempts to kill Veta.]]

!!Gil Prus:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Certainly not an outright villain in ''Hetalia''.
* {{Asshole Victim}}: Not even Veta feels much remorse over what she does to him.
* {{Attention Whore}}: Really likes to be in the spotlight.
* {{Blood Knight}}: Relishes the opportunity to kill his opponents. He even showed himself to a Career just so he could start a fight!
* {{Brains and Brawn}}:Brawn to Thew's brains in the 2nd What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Has his skull repeatedly smashed open with a frying pan. To make matters worse, it's specifially stated he was alive for nearly all of it.]]
* {{Egomaniac Hunter}}: A complete egotist who [[{{Hunting the Most Dangerous Game}} Hunts the Most Dangerous Game]]. To be fair, it (most likely) wasn't his choice to be thrown into a game of life and death, but he still relishes in the opportunity to hunt and kill his fellow human beings.
* EvilAlbino: can be taken as such, because of [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy Prussia's]] appearance in AxisPowersHetalia.
* {{Evil versus Evil}}: When he takes on Corianne.
* {{Hot Blooded}}: Goes out of his way to spark a battle with a Career.
* {{Its All About Me}}: One of the more arrogant tributes, to say the least.
* {{Jerkass}}: See below.
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: Completely remorseless for any of his murders; not to mention that his reaction upon finding his younger districtmate has asthma was that she'd be even easier to kill.
* {{Laughably Evil}}: While it doesn't detract from his villainy in any way, his over-the-top arrogance often makes him comical.
* {{The Fighting Narcissist}}: But with less focus on his looks than most examples of the trope.
* {{For the Evulz}}: See Kick the Dog.
* {{Glory Hound}}: Goes naturally with his self-centred attitude.
* {{Kick the Dog}}: In the second What If, after killing [[spoiler: Veta and Austria]], he kicks the latter's body for no reason other than simple malice.
* {{Kick Them While They Are Down}}: The aforementioned Kick the Dog.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Veta.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way at Veta's hands.]]
* {{Non Human Sidekick}}: His eagle mutt, 'Gil-bird,' in the second What If.
* [[spoiler: {{Rasputinian Death}}: His skull is coming apart in pieces before his cannon fires.]]
* {{Sensitive Guy and Manly Man}}: Has this dynamic in his alliance with Thew. He's the Manly Man.
* {{Small Name Big Ego}}: Someone from a non-Career district still vying for the sponsors and the kills.
* {{The Sociopath}}: See Lack of Empathy.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Corianne]], as well as [[spoiler: Veta]] in ''What If''.

!!Philan Visce:

* BlackBestFriend: to Philan.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Chia.]]
* {{Like Brother and Sister}}: His friendship with Peyton is depicted this way in one of Number One Fan of Journey's comedic fanarts, with Peyton stressing that they're not romantically involved.
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: See Taking You With Me.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt / {{Sacrificial Lamb}} / WeHardlyKnewYe]]
* [[spoiler: {{Taking You With Me}}: He dies at the bloodbath, but not without taking his killer, Chia, with him.]]
* TokenMinority: One of the few black
characters in the series, along with Cuba, Shaye and Egypt.
* {{True Companions}}: Has an extremely close bond with his district partner/friend Peyton, whom he considers to be his 'twin' as they were born on the same day.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: To be fair, she had just [[spoiler: mortally wounded him]].

!!Toris Lithu:

* {{All Work vs All Play}}: The All Work to Poal's All Play.
* {{Brainy Brunette}}: He has brown-haired and is said by Poal to be one of the smartest tributes in the field.
* CloudCuckooLandersMinder: tries (with limited success) to keep Poal out of trouble.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Comes naturally
from exasperation with Poal.
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Does more running than fighting.
* {{Doomed by Canon}}: In The Hunger Games, District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so it's certain from the start that he's going to die.
* TheEeyore: has a very pessimistic outlook on life.
* {{Killed Off
Brutal]].

[[Characters/BrutalSeriesHorrible Go here
for Real}}: [[spoiler: By Russia.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: Doesn't seem to accept killing others as an option, and stays with Poal.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: See Distressed Dude.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Especially when contrasted with his hyperactive ally, Poal.
* {{The Philosopher}}: Spends much of his intro chapter debating whether it's better to die in front of the entire nation in the Hunger Games or waste away in the mines with your name lost to history. If Poal is to be believed, he goes into these phases a lot.
* {{Properly Paranoid}}: Unlike Poal, he actually realizes that everything in the Games is out to kill him.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}} Blue Oni to Poal.
* {{Sacrificial Lion}}: although he's not terribly important, [[spoiler: his death]] has a powerful impact on the plot because it shows that [[spoiler: Russia has crossed the MoralEventHorizon.]]
* {{Savvy Guy Energetic Girl}}: Fits this trope to a T with Poal.
* [[spoiler: {{Slashed Throat}}: Dies this way.]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't have many emotional highs or lows.

[[folder: ''Brutal'' Females, District 1 - 6]]

!!Vivi Daley:

* {{Action Girl}}: Comes with Career territory.
** {{Dark Action Girl}}: See above.
* {{Ax Crazy}}: Takes delight in the bloodshed of the Games, [[spoiler: going so far as to shove a sickle into her own throat because she thought her impending death by poison wasn't violent enough]].
* {{Blood Knight}}: Is actually rather obsessed with blood in particular.
* {{Dark Chick}}: In the Career alliance.
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Type II.
* {{Informed Ability}}: Can slash over into the {{Know Nothing Know It All}} territory. Vivi keeps on saying that she's intelligent, but we see no evidence for that. In fact, she essentially [[spoiler: commits suicide]] from her own arrogant unwillingness to trust.
* {{Kick The Dog}}: Torturing [[spoiler: Peyton]] and mutilating her corpse.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: By Thew's poison.]]
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: She's unhinged, so of course she doesn't.
* {{Meaningful Name}}: Guess which of our favorite fanfiction writers she's based on? Even better yet, she comes of the Capitol Games fame. Mhm, yes, you got that right; ladies, gentlemen- give it up for miss Vividly Visceral!
* {{More Deadly Than The Male}}: She's certainly more savage and bloodthirsty when it comes to kills. Partially subverted as she herself points out that even though she's well-versed in weapons, she couldn't take on her District partner Alf since he's so well-built.
* {{Nightmare Fetishist}}: She views slaughter somewhat romantically.
* {{Pummeling The Corpse}}: Does this to [[spoiler: Peyton's]] corpse.
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Gives one to Alf, describing why he isn't worthy to be a Career.
* [[spoiler: {{Undignified Death}}: Getting a death sentence by drinking from a canteen of water that was poisoned by Thew that Alf was freaking out about. Tries to avert this by cutting open her own throat as she thought that it wasn't a gory enough death for her.]]
* {{Weak But Skilled}}: She's not weak, per se, but she's just fifteen and is on the smaller side when it comes to the usual Career fare. Her partner Alf is much stronger than her, and she said that her intelligence will help her, so she's really essentially this in the Career pack.
* {{Write Who You Know}}: Anybody know Vividly Visceral? Yeah, that's right. Vivi Daley's based on her. It now makes a whole lot of sense in perspective.

!!Corianne File:

* {{Action Girl}}: Definitely one of the fighters.
** {{Dark Action Girl}}: Not a nice fighter, either.
* {{An Axe to Grind}}: Uses a halberd, a Medieval axe.
* {{Even Evil Has Loved Ones}}: [[spoiler: We later find out in ''Horrible'' that she was good friends with Dardana.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: By Gil.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}: Gives one to [[spoiler: Maria]].
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type IV with Dardana, eventually growing into Type I.

!!Maria Carriedo:

* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: This to Franse when he attempts to hit on her during Training.
* [[spoiler: ForgottenFallenFriend]]: Thew remembers her once, but never thinks of her again after that.
* [[spoiler: {{Go Out with a Smile}}: She's so relieved that she managed to get out her {{Last Words}} that she manages to smile]].
* [[spoiler: {{Last Words}}: A goodbye to her family; she said that she loved them and they shouldn't get depressed over her death ]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Corianne.]]
* [[spoiler: {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}: On the receiving end of one from Corianne.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Doesn't play into the plot even in alternate endings.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: We hardly got to know her before she was killed.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}} See above.]]

!!Chia Mendel:

* {{Food Porn}}: Describes all the delectable courses she's served on the train.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: She just wanted to be normal...
* {{I Just Want to Be Normal}}: She only wants to be normal and not want to be a great Career like her parents always bothered about.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: By Philan.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: Philan and her take each other out in the Bloodbath]].
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: Dies early on.]]

!!Wynd Blune:

* [[spoiler: {{Distressed Damsel}}: Is this, and Franse goes and does a {{Senseless Sacrifice}} to try to buy her time and save her during the Bloodbath. ]]
* NiceGirl: A little weird, but nice enough.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Alf.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Means nothing in the grand scheme of the story.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: Little characterisation, little screentime.]]
* {{UST}}: A bit with {{Casanova Wannabe}} Franse. He just keeps on flirting with other girls while she watches, a bit bitter.
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: Dies before leaving the bloodbath.]]

!!Tiee Bongiovi:

* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: by Lude.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: All she does is die.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: See above.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: First death, no less. ]]

!!Liet Wingly:

* {{Children are Innocent}}: The youngest tribute and the most innocent.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}]]: At the hands of Lude in [[spoiler: the fourth What If.]]
* {{Damsel in Distress}}: Justified, as she's only twelve years old in an arena full of deadly competitors.
* {{Dying Alone}}: Averted at the last moment in backstory. Turned away from an orphanage because she was not old enough to accept tesserae, Liet was close to dying on the streets when Switz took her in.
* {{Go Through Me}}: Tries to defend Switz this way.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: one of the most innocent
characters in the series, she's presumably blonde just like her AxisPowersHetalia counterpart.
* HappilyAdopted: Although technically she wasn't adopted until Switz hit eighteen.
* {{Heartwarming Orphan}}: Ridiculously sweet, even soon after her parents' death.
* [[spoiler: {{Heroic Sacrifice}}]]: Took several blows
from [[spoiler: Russia's blade]] to shield her brother. [[spoiler: Regrettably, it doesn't do much good, as they are both killed soon after.]]

* [[spoiler: {{Kill the Cutie}}: Dies late in the story.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off
Horrible]].

[[Characters/BrutalSeriesMiserable Go here
for Real}}: By Russia's hands.]]
* {{Little Miss Badass}}: In the second What If, the way she climbed a tree, jumped Russia, and managed to land some blows with her bow and arrow ([[spoiler: albeit useless]]) was pretty cool.
* {{The Load}}: To Switz; not that he minds.
* MoreHeroThanThou: after realizing that Switz intends to sacrifice himself for her, she vows to do the same for him.
* {{Nice Girl}}: Thinks sweet, acts sweet.
* {{Power Trio}}/{{Two Guys and a Girl}}: With Switz and Austria.
* [[spoiler: RasputinianDeath / WhyWontYouDie]]: Amazingly, in the fourth What If [[spoiler: she survives being clubbed in the head with a morningstar and has to be hit several more times before finally dying.]]

* {{Action Girlfriend}}: To [[{{Non Action Guy}} Austria]].
* {{Berserk Button}}: Don't hit on her unless you're Austria. And heaven have mercy on your soul if you hurt him.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: She's generally amiable, but if you push her buttons...
* [[spoiler: {{Broken Bird}}: She's definitely one as of the epilogue.]]
* {{Chastity Couple}}: Even after being 'married' to Austria, though justified because they're on national television.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: surviving the Games without Austria]] turns her into a cynical BrokenBird [[spoiler: in the epilogue.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Death by Adaptation}}: In the second and fourth What Ifs.]]
* {{Despair Event Horizon}}: Dances on it after [[spoiler: Austria is killed]].
* {{Determinator}}: Keeps going just because she can.
* {{Extreme Melee Revenge}}: [[spoiler: Dishes this out to Gil.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Final Girl}}: The Victor of the Games.]]
* {{Frying Pan of Doom}}: Receives one from sponsors and uses it appropriately.

* [[spoiler: {{Her Heart Will Go On}}: She survives, but her fiancé/husband doesn't.]]
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: [[spoiler: After Austria is killed.]]
* {{Improbable Weapon User}}: [[spoiler: Wins the Hunger Games]] with a frying pan ([[spoiler: and Russia's knife.]])
* {{Its Personal}}: Veta never takes a directly aggressive stance against her opponents until [[spoiler: Gil kills Austria]]. Then ... let's just say you do NOT want to push her {{Berserk Button}}.
* {{Kick Them While They Are Down}}: Does this to Gil.
* {{Love Makes You Crazy}}/{{Love Makes You Evil}}: Not that she was by any means evil, but her darkest and craziest act ([[spoiler: Extreme Melee Revenge on Gil]]) was powered by [[spoiler: her pain over Austria's death]].
* {{Love Hurts}}: If being reaped with your fiancé isn't bad enough, [[spoiler: surviving while he dies]] definitely is.
* {{The Mourning After}}: [[spoiler: Even after Austria's death, Veta still considers herself to be "Mrs. Veta Edel." Woe to you if you forget it.]]
* {{My Own Private I Do}}: With Austria.
* [[spoiler: {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: Delivers one to Gil.]]
* {{Official Couple}}: Veta/Austria is the only 'ship in the series that actually stays afloat ([[spoiler: until, of course, he dies]]).
* {{Pervert Revenge Mode}}: Goes absolutely insane when Franse hits on her.
* {{Plucky Girl}}: Not necessarily cheerful the whole time, but doesn't think much about giving up.
* {{Pummeling the Corpse}}: [[spoiler: To Gil.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Pyrrhic Victory}}: Wins the Games, but after Austria's death.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Shell Shocked Veteran}}: "I survived the Hunger Games. I'm about as broken as they come."]]
* {{Single Woman Seeks Good Man}}: Austria's not exactly the {{Badass}} of the series...
* {{So Happy Together}}: Veta's and Austria's makeshift wedding and the scene where they warm their hands over the fire together serve as this for the couple.
* [[spoiler: {{Sole Survivor}}: According to the Hunger Games rules.]]
* {{Star Crossed Lovers}}: With Austria.
* [[spoiler: {{Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome}}: Sort of. She's the {{Sole Survivor}} of ''Brutal'', but the first of its
characters to die in ''What If''.]]

* [[spoiler: {{Together in Death}}: With Austria in ''What If''.]]

* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: Not too cheerful, but on the cuter side.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Japan.]]
* NiceGirl: Doesn't think
from Miserable]].

[[Characters/BrutalSeriesUnsurvivable Go here
for a moment about living at the cost of her brother's life.
* [[spoiler: {{Off With Her Head}}: Japan's method of execution.]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]: like Toris, while she doesn't last long enough to be as developed as some of the other characters, [[spoiler: her death contributes hugely to the plot in that it sends Russia over the Despair Event Horizon.]]
* [[spoiler: StuffedIntoTheFridge]]: played almost straight. Japan didn’t intentionally [[spoiler: leave her headless body lying around,]] but in all other aspects it fits perfectly.

!!Eudocia Conc:

* [[spoiler: Kill The Cutie: Quite innocent, now dead.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Via asthma attack.]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Doesn't mean much more than a KickTheDog moment for Corianne.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lamb}}: Just there to fill up the bloodbath.]]
* [[spoiler: {{We Hardly Knew Ye}}: The only real glimpse of her life is her 750 words in her introductory chapter. ]]

!!Peyton Unbi:

* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]: Vivi takes care to [[spoiler: kill her in the most agonizing way possible,]] leaving time between the [[spoiler: sword blows]] so that her pain is not dulled.
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: One of the perkier
characters to die.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Vivi.]]
* LikeBrotherAndSister: her friendship with Philan is depicted this way in one of Number One Fan of Journey's comedic fanarts, with Peyton stressing that they're not romantically involved.
* [[spoiler: RedShirt: Since Philan doesn't live, either, her death doesn't amount to much.]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb: Dies too early to be important.]]
* TrueCompanions: has an extremely close bond with her district partner/friend Philan, whom she considers to be her 'twin' as they were born on the same day.
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe: Dies before we get to know her.]]

!!Poal Feliks:

* AllGirlsLikePonies: At whatever cost...
* AllWorkvsAllPlay: the 'all play' to Toris' 'all work.'
* CloudCuckooLander: acts more concerned with eating berries and pony-riding than staying alive in the Hunger Games.
* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHer: has her neck broken
from being bucked off a horse shortly after the bloodbath.]]
* DumbBlonde: Blonde, and not too acquainted with logic.
* [[spoiler: ForgottenFallenFriend]]: to Toris, [[spoiler: although his next POV consists mostly of him running for his life and being killed, so it could be assumed that his grieving took place off-screen.]]
* GenderFlip: to the male Poland in ''Hetalia''.
* GenkiGirl: Always chipper.
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: See Genki Girl and Killed Off for Real.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By a pony, of all things.]]

* SkewedPriorities: "I, like, totally want to ride a pony before I die!"
* ValleyGirl: Quite fond of "like" and "totally" in particular.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Horrible'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Rome Gnaeus:

* {{Adaptational Villainy}}: Maybe a little annoying, but certainly not villainous in the original.
* {{Affably Evil}}: So much that he went for the "fun and friendly" angle during his interviews.
* [[spoiler: {{Alas Poor Villain}}: Even if you don't like the guy, you have to admit that being betrayed by his ally/crush and croaking out her name as he lies dying is a sad way to go.]]
* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Although he's certain that Ania will fall for him, it never happens.
* AntiVillain: a dark Type IV, if you squint. He spends more of his time boasting and flirting than doing anything actively malevolent, and the only time he succeeds in killing somebody in the core storyline, it’s by indirect means. Despite this, he still definitely opposes the protagonists.
* BetaCouple: with Ania, [[spoiler: albiet unrequited.]]
* BigBad: of the Horrible career pack, [[spoiler: until [[{{DragonAscendant}} Ania]] takes over.]]
* {{Boisterous Bruiser}}: Decides he just has to take on a giant lizard mutt by himself for the fun of it.
* {{Brains and Brawn}}: The brawn to Ania's brains.
* TheCasanova: Apparently dates dozens of girls at once.
* {{Curb Stomp Battle}}: Against [[spoiler: Gries]] in the sixth What If.
* {{Dirty Business}}: How he seems to view killing females and the defenceless. He doesn't like it much, but feels he has to do it anyway.
* [[spoiler: {{Et tu Brute}}: Gets stabbed in the back by his ally, Ania.]]
* {{Evil Duo}}: With Ania; she being the Superego, he being the Id.
* {{The Fighting Narcissist}}: Definitely fighting, and his introductory chapter was so darn narcissistic the author had difficulty writing it.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Ania.]]
* {{Large Ham}}: "I, the great and powerful Rome!"
* [[spoiler: {{Last Kiss}}: Kisses Ania as she dies in the sixth What If. Since he dies not long afterwards, this would make it his last kiss as well. Slightly subverted in that it's more creepy and manipulative than romantic.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Love Hurts}}: Like a sword through the back. Literally.]]
* {{Love Martyr}}: Never stops hoping Ania will reciprocate his feelings, even when it's incredibly obvious she hates his guts.
* {{Laughably Evil}}: Definitely an antagonist, but his narcissism makes him humorous.
* [[spoiler: {{Manipulative Bastard}}: Surprisingly, he has a moment of this in the sixth What If when he tells Ania he'd feel a lot less guilty about killing her if she returned his affections, then exploits her desire to repay him so that she lets him kiss her.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: With Igris in the sixth What If.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: For a career.
* [[spoiler: {{No Kill Like Overkill}}: Amer tears his neck to absolute shreds in the first What If.]]
* {{Not So Harmless Villain}}: Does absolutely nothing – until he [[spoiler: mortally wounds Fronce.]]
* {{Pet the Dog}}: Quite a few: he [[{{Taking the Bullet}} Took a Bullet]] for Ania on their first meeting, has a distaste for harming females and the defenceless (although he does it anyway) and was polite enough to [[spoiler: carry Gries' body to where the hovercraft could get it]] in the sixth What If.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Red Oni to Ania
* {{Taking the Bullet}}: Shielded Ania from a hit on her first day in the Career training centre, for which she wants to repay him.
* {{What the Hell Costuming Department}}: In-universe. Rome didn't think the fake eyelashes went too well with his 'manly' angle.
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Though, to his credit, he doesn't like it much.

!!Vash Zerlan:

* [[spoiler: AccidentalMurder]]: possibly. The author has [[ShrugOfGod never confirmed]] if he intended to [[spoiler: shoot Dardana at the bloodbath]] or was innocently testing out his crossbow.
* AdaptationalVillainy: More neutral in ''Hetalia''.
* TheArcher: Or Crossbow-Shooter, as the case may be.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Doesn't do much talking, but fine with killing.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Blonde and definitely not a hero.
* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHim: dies suddenly and unceremoniously from an explosion in the early stages of the Games.]]
* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler: shoots his own district partner, Dardana, in the head.]]
* EvilOrphan: Hasn't had a morally-nurturing life after escaping the orphanage.
* FreudianExcuse: lived a miserable childhood on the streets and in orphanages before turning to the Career training program as his only option.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: by pinecones.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: has absolutely no sympathy for any of his competition, killing [[spoiler: Dardana and Meghna]] without a second thought.
* TheQuietOne: See Beware the Quiet Ones.
* TheStoic: Devoid of emotion other than vague annoyance.
* [[spoiler: SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome]]: in a way. The version of Switzerland in ‘’Horrible,’’ Switz, [[spoiler: lasts nearly to the end of the Games,]] but Vash [[spoiler: dies sooner and far more unceremoniously.]]
* TriggerHappy: is a little too eager to let loose his arrows.

!!Spain Carriedo:

* [[spoiler: {{Accidental Murder}}: Almost on the receiving end of this trope.]]
** [[spoiler: And he certainly isn't the kind that would kill Aztinca, but...]]
* {{Always Save the Girl}}: As a part of his atonement.
* {{The Atoner}}: He does everything he can to make up for [[spoiler: killing [[{{Jerkass Victim}} Atzinca]].]]
* {{Belligerent Sexual Tension}}: What his and Lovi's relationship can be interpreted easily as.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: Very nice... But with a less than spotless story.
* {{Big Brother Instinct}}: To Lovi.
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Cutie}}: Twice: 1) when he saw his sister die on national television and 2) when he killed Atzinca.]]
* {{Crouching Moron Hidden Badass}}: Can be a goofball, but can also kick butt if it comes down to it.
* CynicismCatalyst: between [[spoiler: his sister's death two years previously, an [[AccidentalMurder accidental]] [[SympatheticMurderBackstory murder]] to his name, and the brief guilt of letting Perdita die]], he certainly has a lot of motivation for trying to protect Lovi.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: He has his small moments with Lovi.
* DeclarationOfProtection: towards Lovi.
* {{Drop the Hammer}}: He shares a hammer with Lovi.
* TheFakeCutie: What Lovi starts suspecting him to be. At first, it's used in a comedic light when Spain jokes about it to her...then it's used in a horrifying deconstruction when [[spoiler: Lovi almost murders him for it]].
* {{Green Eyes}}: Startlingly so, apparently, and with a bit of untrustworthiness to accompany it.
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: He starts slipping a bit when he sees that the arena to this year's Game is [[spoiler: just like the one that Maria died in]].
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: He chooses to save Lovi [[spoiler: and sacrifices their supplies to Sadik.]]
* {{I Let Gwen Stacy Die}}: He has shades of this when he remembers how he wasn't able to save [[spoiler: Perdita]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Ania.]]
* {{Nice Guy}}: One of the least selfish characters in the series.
* {{Nice Job Breaking It Hero}}: Wow, Spain, nice job [[spoiler: letting it slip that you strangled a chick…]] especially when you're playing the CHILDMURDER GAMES.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: In the core series, at least.
* {{Only Sane Man}}: Compared to the fitful Lovi.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: Always tries his best to cheer Lovi up.
* {{Ship Tease}}: Oh so much with Lovi.
* {{Slashed Throat}}: [[spoiler: Although he's already KO-ed with brain damage, he dies this way courtesy of Ania.]]
* [[spoiler: SympatheticMurderBackstory]]: Spain is revealed to [[spoiler: have killed one person]] before the Games: a young woman who mocked his sister's untimely death.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: The calming Blue Oni to Lovi's more impulsive Red Oni.
* {{Retirony}}: Spain could've missed the Reaping- if only his birthday came four days earlier…
* {{Tap on the Head}}: Horrifyingly averted. Justified, because [[spoiler: it's done with a hammer.]]
* {{Unskilled but Strong}}: He scored a 9 but isn't trained like a Career.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Has shades of this with Lovi.

!!Wiremu Sachy:

* [[spoiler: AssholeVictim: Killed for his attempt to rape Finni.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Attempted Rape}}: Thank ''goodness'' Sve got there first.]]
* {{The Brute}}: In ''Horrible'''s Career group.
* [[spoiler: {{For the Evulz}}: What he almost does to Finni.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Given no excuses.
* [[spoiler: {{Kick the Dog}}: Again, what he almost does to Finni.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Sve.]]
* {{Neck Snap}}: He kills [[spoiler: Perdita]] this way.
* {{Rape Is A Special Kind Of Evil}}: He's one of the least, if not the least, sympathetic Careers because of this.
* {{Slashed Throat}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way.]]
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Or worse.
* {{Would Hurt a Child}}: Poor, poor [[spoiler: Perdita.]]

!!Igris Kirkland:

* AloofBigBrother: To Shiran.
* {{Anti Hero}}: A wannabe of it; Igris keeps on saying that he's okay with killing people in order to get out of the Games alive, but when it comes down to it, [[spoiler: he doesn't actually kill and never slides beyond Type II at worst.]]
* {{Badass}}: Not too soft for a pampered rich kid. After all, he managed to master the rapier in what seems like seconds.
* {{Big Ol Eyebrows}}: Both Fronce and Amer love to rib him about it. And his little brother, Shiran, also has them.
* ChekhovsHobby: His skill with embroidery comes in handy when he has to knit up Fronce's wounds.
* [[{{Cool Big Sis}} Cool Big Bro]]: Aloof but caring.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: This is what makes about the majority of his banter with Amer and Fronce enjoyable in a {{crapsack world}}.
* {{Defrosting Ice King}}: At first glance, he seems like a callous jerk- but then you see him soften up like a marshmallow-pillow.
* {{Death by Adaptation}}: He doesn't fare too well in the What Ifs.
* {{First Person Smart Ass}}: As a result of him being a {{Deadpan Snarker}}, his narrative is also snarky.
* FriendlessBackground: due to his wealth and general {{Jerk Ass}} attitude, his only friend is [[{{VitriolicBestBuds}} Fronce]] and later [[spoiler: Amer]].
* {{Genius Bruiser}}: He's very clever and smart, AND he's strong enough to [[spoiler: subdue the Careers in battle.]]
* {{Honor Before Reason}}: [[{{Blatant Lies}} Despite what he says about how Anti Hero he is]], he never abandons Fronce even though it would've been the more pragmatic course of action. Heck, he doesn't even [[spoiler: kill ANIA.]]
* {{Jade Colored Glasses}}: What he starts wearing during the Games- although it doesn't stop him from putting {{Honor before Reason}}.
* {{Jerk with a Heart of Gold}}: One of his defining characteristics. We even sympathize with him when he learn of his reason for wanting to [[spoiler: abandon China to die alone.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By poison.]]
* {{Lethal Chef}}: He once brought in some home-baked cookies to share with everyone...and guess how that turned out?
* {{Lonely Rich Kid}}: It makes it even more sad when Fronce [[spoiler: , his first and only friend, dies]].
** Even Shiran knows of that and thanks Amer for being Igris's friend.
* {{Messy Hair}}: Perpetually so, Games or otherwise.
* {{Mutual Kill}}: [[spoiler: with Ania in the first What If.]]
* {{Not So Above it All}}: It's noted that even though he tried to act like a gentleman, he got too annoyed by Caesar to fully keep his composure during the interviews. Amusingly, the same fate was also shared with his fellow {{Tsundere}}, Lovi.
* SiblingYinYang: He is cynial and aloof, while Shiran is optimistic and friendly.
* SourOutsideSadInside: Always gratingly sarcastic, but deep down just terribly lonely and insecure.
* {{Spoiled Sweet}}: Even though he's rich, he doesn't act like the stereotypical rich brat and treats everyone like equals. He even baked cookies once to share with his fellow workers at the Trading Post.
* {{Skewed Priorities}}: Really, Igris? You really had to move out of your hiding place to make TEA in the CHILDMURDER GAMES?!
* StepfordSnarker: See Sour Outside Sad Inside.
* TechnicalPacifist: He has no qualms with combat; he just doesn't want to kill his defeated opponents.
* {{Tsundere}}: A platonic version to Fronce. Even though Igris tries to make himself look all grouch and stoic, his true feelings are shown in his narrative.
* WouldHitAGirl: has no qualms with attacking the fierce Ania in self-defense.
* VitriolicBestBuds: with Fronce.

!!Fronce Foybon:

* [[spoiler: AccidentalMurder]]: neglects to tell his allies that [[spoiler: his berry sauce is poisonous]] when consumed in large amounts. He is duly horrified when [[spoiler: China]] eats too much one night and dies.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: when he asks Igris if he would leave him behind to die like he did [[spoiler: China]]. Although Igris doesn’t let Fronce know it got to him, he clearly thinks it over before [[spoiler: his later NoOneGetsLeftBehind moment.)]]
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Igris expresses horror and grief when Fronce is [[spoiler: severely wounded and eventually dies.]]
* BandofBrothers: with Igris and [[spoiler: Amer]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Not particularly well-built but quite the ladies' man.
* TheCasanova / CasanovaWannabe: it's unclear just how successful his flirting is in everyday life.
* ChekhovsHobby: He's a good cook. This comes in handy during the Hunger Games.
* ChivalrousPervert: an unashamed flirt, but a decent human being nonetheless.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* DistressedDude: Not the fighter in his alliances.
* FireForgedFriends: with Igris and [[spoiler: Amer]].
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice]]: see Taking the Bullet.
* HollywoodHealing: zigzagged. He initially [[spoiler: survives a sword through the stomach]] thanks to only stitches and disinfectant, but [[spoiler: dies later]] – though not of this injury, but [[spoiler: infection from an unnoticed wound on his neck.]]
* IWillOnlySlowYouDown: unsuccessfully begs [[spoiler: Igris to leave him behind after he’s been severely wounded and infected.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By infection.]]
* TheLoad: to Igris and [[spoiler: Amer, after he's been wounded.]]
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: In a plot-relevant way, no less.
* MeaningfulEcho: after Igris abandons [[spoiler: China to die alone]], Fronce indignantly asks him if he would leave him behind in a similar situation. Igris responds that he would instead stick around to taunt him. Much later, after [[spoiler: Fronce has been gravely injured and knocked out,]] he wakes up to discover [[spoiler: Igris is carrying him on his back.]] The first words out of his mouth? [[spoiler: [[{{CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming}} "So you didn't leave me behind after all."]]]]
* MortalWoundReveal: the [[spoiler: infected cut behind his long hair.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: after [[spoiler: accidentally killing China.]]
* NonActionGuy: apart from a swordfight with Igris in the training center. Justified, as he is never given a weapon, and cannot fight with his bare hands.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Igris [[spoiler: refuses to leave him to die, even when he’s badly injured.]]
* OnlyFriend: to Igris, before [[spoiler: Amer]] enters the picture.
* PowerTrio: with Igris and China, then Igris and [[spoiler: Amer]].
* PrinceCharmingWannabe: treats China like a ProperLady, but she remains unimpressed.
* ReplacementGoldfish: he and Igris could be seen as [[spoiler: Amer’s]] replacement goldfish for [[spoiler: Eston and Raivis.]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion: One of the last characters to die.]]
* [[spoiler: SparedByAdaptation]]: in the sixth What If.
* SupremeChef / TeamChef: That sauce must have tasted ''amazing''...
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: jumps in front of Rome’s sword to protect a blind, injured and unarmed Lovi in the first What If.]]
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Igris and China.
* VitriolicBestBuds: beneath all the petty squabbling, he and Igris really do love each other.

[[folder: ''Horrible'' Males, District 7 - 12]]

!!Eston von Bock:

* BandOfBrothers / FireForgedFriends: with Amer and Raivis, especially during the third What If.
* BigBrotherInstinct: towards Raivis.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Amer.]]
* DistressedDude: Thankfully Amer's ready to protect him.
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity]]: in the third What If.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: allows Amer to kill him so that Raivis can win]] in the third What If.
* IDontWantToDie: in a truly heartbreaking scene, [[spoiler: he goes off by himself and cries after a coin toss decides he must die for Raivis.]] This doesn’t stop him from eventually [[spoiler: making the HeroicSacrifice.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Vahn.]]
* TheLancer / TheSmartGuy: in his alliance with Amer and Raivis.
* NonActionGuy: Rather scrawny, actually.
* {{Megane}}: Has glasses and can arouse some affection.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to the paranoid, the brain-damaged bully, and the kid with the hero complex...
* PowerTrio: with Amer and Raivis.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Raivis’ new ‘brother’ after losing [[spoiler: Toris]] two years previously.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion: His death definitely makes a difference for Amer... And Vahn.]]
* ShootTheDog: [[spoiler: Amer kills him in the third What If so that Raivis can be the Victor.]]
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat: dies this way in the third What If.]]
* SomeoneHasToDie: in the third What If, he and his allies Raivis and Amer [[spoiler: are the final three tributes, but only one of them is allowed to survive. Amer volunteers to kill one of them and then himself. Eston loses a coin toss and dies in place of Raivis.]]
* TeenGenius / GadgeteerGenius: he says in his intro chapter that he’s very skilled with all sorts of technology, and that he could easily start a fire with a battery and some wire. In the third What If, it’s revealed that his dream is to become talented enough to work in District 3.
* TheVonTropeFamily: Courtesy of his Hetalian name.

!!Sadik Ottoman:

* AscendedExtra / EarlyBirdCameo: he features in the ''Brutal'' epilogue before becoming a more important character in ''Horrible.''
* CoolMask: wears one 24/7.
* HonorBeforeReason: intended to go as far as he could through the Games without killing to entertain the Capitol. His resolve caved in pretty quickly when hunger got the best of him, [[spoiler: although he still couldn’t bring himself to kill Lovi.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By Amer.]]
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: in the ''Brutal'' epilogue.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: to Spain and Lovi, when he holds the latter hostage in exchange for supplies. [[spoiler: He’s not intending to kill her, though.]]
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistfight: Sadik commences his and Amer's fist fight by pulling a knife, and promptly loses it. [[spoiler: Guess who wins.]] Sort of zigzagged, though, since he wasn't trying to play dirty by taking out the knife, just warning Amer not to mess with him.
* TheQuietOne: unless he's around [[{{SitcomArchNemesis}} Gries.]]
* SadisticChoice: forces Spain to choose between Lovi's left and their alliance's vital supplies.
* ShootHimHeHasAWallet: zigzagged. Sadik [[spoiler: is killed]] for pulling out a knife, averting this trope, but he was doing so to dissuade, not harm, his attacker.
* SitcomArchNemesis: with Gries. Unlike most of the rivalries in the series, it isn’t too serious and doesn’t culminate in violence in the arena.
* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler: dies when Amer cuts his throat with broken glass.]]
* TheStoic: Doesn't do much overreacting.

!!Vahn Larus:

* {{Accent Adaptation}}: Sort of. Since most citizens of Panem probably don't know what on earth Russia is, his Russian accent is interpreted by his adoptive parents as a speech impediment and by the doctor as a rare disorder.
* {{All Love is Unrequited}}: Never returns Natalya's affections, and for good reason.
* {{An Axe to Grind}}: Gets a pickaxe from the bloodbath.
* {{Ascended Extra}}/{{Early Bird Cameo}}: Briefly mentioned in ''Brutal'' as having attacked Russia; a rather important supporting character in the sequel.
* [[spoiler: {{Asshole Victim}}: True, Amer [[{{Jumping Off the Slippery Slope}} Jumps Off the Slippery Slope]] when he kills him, but after everything he's just done to Eston and Raivis, it's easy to sympathize with the murderer.]]
* {{Bad Boss}}: Keeps his 'allies', Eston and Raivis, in line with threats and violence.
* {{Blond Guys are Evil}}: Taken from his ''Hetalia'' counterpart, though Vahn can't be argued to be innocent at all.
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Badass}}: His crying at his death scene shows the reader just how dangerous and merciless Amer has become.]]
* {{Brother Sister Incest}}: This is why he's scared of Natalya.
* {{The Bully}}: Acts like this to Eston and Raivis, and was implied to be one back in District 9, beating up Russia for his optimism and having a gang of cronies.
* {{The Brute}}: Not belonging to any pack.
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: Has all of his guts ripped out.]]
* [[spoiler: {{David Versus Goliath}}: In his fights against Amer.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Death Equals Emotion}}: Serves as {{The Stoic}} for most of the series, but breaks down crying and wishing to go home right before he bites it.]]
* {{Even Evil Has Loved Ones}}: Although he tries to avoid Natalya and has no problem with her dying so he can get home, he does claim to genuinely love her (though not in the way she'd like, thank goodness...)
* {{Evil Orphan}}: Though one who is {{Happily Adopted}}.
* {{Freudian Excuse}}: Hinted at; he lost his parents at a young age.
* {{Funetik Aksent}}: Although not terribly consistent for readability.
* {{Happily Adopted}}: Natalya's parents took him in and paid for his surgery after he was injured in the machinery accident that killed his parents.
** {{Oblivious Adoption}}: Possibly. His adoptive mother told him she was his real mother, and it's unknown if he ever figured out the truth.
* {{Heartwarming Orphan}}: As a child.
* {{Husky Russkie}}/{{Mother Russia Makes You Strong}}: Strong and based on Russia.
* {{Just Toying With Them}}: Does this to Amer in the third What If because he's certain he can beat him. [[{{Crowning Moment of Awesome}} Amer proves him wrong]].
* {{Kick the Dog}}: Cuts off Raivis' finger just to keep him in line.
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off for Real}}: By Amer.]]
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: Sees nothing wrong with [[spoiler: murdering and chopping off fingers for punishment.]]
* {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}/{{No Kill Like Overkill}}: [[spoiler: Dies this way at Amer's hands.]]
* {{Not Blood Siblings}}: With Natalya.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: States that he really does care for Natalya, despite her {{Yandere}} tendencies. Subverted in that he'd be perfectly fine with her death as long as it means he can win.
* {{Power Trio}}: With Eston and Raivis.
* [[spoiler: {{Rasputinian Death}}: He has most of his abdominal cavity removed before his cannon fires.]]
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}: Is on the receiving end of a truly merciless one from Amer.
* [[spoiler: {{Russian Guy Suffers Most}}: Gets what might be the most painful death in the entire series, having everything – all the way through to his spine – hacked up and ripped apart.]]
* {{The Stoic}}: Doesn't show much emotion until [[spoiler: begging for mercy from Amer.]]
* {{This is Unforgivable}}: Said to him by Amer after [[spoiler: he kills Eston and Raivis.]]
* {{Used to be a Sweet Kid}}: Seems to be one in Natalya's flashback.
* [[spoiler: {{Villains Want Mercy}}: Begs Amer to stop his {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}.]]
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Kills [[spoiler: Celladora]] at the bloodbath.
* {{You Monster}}: Said to him by Amer after [[spoiler: he kills Eston and Raivis.]]

!!Amer Jones:

* [[spoiler: AGoodWayToDie: in the third What If.]]
* AmericaSavesTheDay: Or he certainly wants to.
* AntiHero: definitely wants to be a straight hero, but [[spoiler: ends up as a type II-IV,]] depending on how the reader interprets him.
* TheAtoner: During the latter part of ''Horrible''. Notable in that all his attempts to make up for what he had done wrong [[spoiler: failed miserably, through no fault of his own]].
* BandOfBrothers: First with Eston and Raivis, then Fronce and Igris, and finally [[spoiler: Shiran]].
* BeAllMySinsRemembered: Can't rebuild his self-image as hero after [[spoiler: killing Vahn.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Nice enough to swear protection over most people he meets... [[spoiler: And horribly murder anyone in his way.]]
* BerserkButton: Never hurt or threaten his friends in front of him. Ever.
* BigBrotherInstinct: To Raivis and Eston (ironic in that he's younger than both of them) as well as his own brother, Matt. Eventually extends to [[spoiler: Shiran]] as well.
* BigDamnHeroes: He rushes in to save Raivis and Eston in chapter 25.
* TheBigGuy: In both of his alliances.
* BigEater: One chapter opens with him whining for more food, which is apparently a habit.
* BondingOverMissingParents: He bonds with [[spoiler: Shiran over their missing friend/brother, Igris]].
* BreakTheCutie: See below.
* BrokenBird: He's pretty much traumatized for life by the [[spoiler: end of the story]].
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Vows to save most of the people on his path.
* CurbStompBattle: vs. Vahn.
* CynicismCatalyst: It's hard to pick just one for him, between [[spoiler: the deaths of ''all four'' of his allies, his survival at the cost of Igris' life, his [[ShootHimHeHasAWallet murder]] of Sadik, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge torturing and killing]] Vahn, and losing his illusion of himself as a hero.]] Suffice to say that he's pretty broken as of [[spoiler: the epilogue.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: On occasion, particularly later in the fic when he's allied with Fronce and Igris.
* [[spoiler: DeathByAdaptation: As he won ''Horrible'', he's pretty much doomed to die in every ''What If'' ending.]]
* DeclarationofProtection: to pretty much all his allies.
* DespairEventHorizon: After the death of [[spoiler: his first alliance]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: The manner in which [[spoiler: he kills Vahn]].
* DoomMagnet: Justified and lampshaded.
* DrivenToSuicide: Almost. Played nearly straight in the first ending of ''What If'': [[spoiler: he doesn't kill himself, but allows Gries to slit his throat]]. Played straight in the [[spoiler: sixth]] What If.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Platonic version; he is more than willing to die for friends he's known for only a few days.
* {{Eagleland}}: Wants to be a Type I, but is more of a mix between the two.
* EvilMeScaresMe: This trope is exactly what happened after he realized [[spoiler: what he did to Vahn.]]
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: [[spoiler: He dishes this out to Vahn.]]
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity: At the end of ''Horrible'' (although it winds up being Igris who dies) and in the third What If.]]
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: YMMV on whether he actually becomes a heel or not.
* FailureToSaveMurder: He believes [[spoiler: Shiran]] will hold him responsible for the death of [[spoiler: his brother, Igris. Shiran]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming proves him wrong.]]
* FightingFromTheInside: He tries darned hard not to go psychotic again.
* FireForgedFriends: With both of his alliances.
* [[spoiler: HeelRealization: After killing Vahn.]]
* TheHero: In his first alliance.
* HeroicBSOD: Falls into this after [[spoiler: the death of his first alliance]] and never really gets better, even in [[spoiler: the four-year later epilogue]].
* HeroicResolve: When fighting Vahn in the third What If.
* HeroicSacrifice: He volunteers for the Hunger Games in place of his twin brother, Matt, [[spoiler: although slightly subverted in that he doesn't die. This trope is played straight in the Third What If.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: To extreme levels.
* HeroicWannabe: In true ''Hetalia'' style.
* HeroWithAnFInGood: He tries so hard to be the hero, but constantly makes things even worse.

* IdiotHero: Doesn't seem to realize protecting others means killing at first.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: Will feel guilty over any perceived failures.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Uses his own broken glasses to [[spoiler: kill Sadik]].
* InterruptedSuicide: Zigzagged. He's about to kill himself so that [[spoiler: Igris can live]], but is interrupted not by his brother, but the thought that his brother will be watching.
* TheInsomniac: Early on, when he can't find an ally.
* ItsPersonal: His opinion of Vahn goes from general dislike to UnstoppableRage after the aforementioned [[spoiler: kills his allies]].
* TheLancer: To Igris in his second alliance.
* LetsGetDangerous / TookALevelInBadass
* [[spoiler: JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: After killing Sadik, he goes on to violently murder Vahn.]]
* [[spoiler: KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Continues to mutilate Vahn, even when he's so injured he can no longer be called a threat.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: To Vahn.
* [[spoiler: KillTheOnesYouLove: Kills Eston in the third What If.]]
* [[spoiler: MilesToGoBeforeISleep: Amer would certainly like to kill himself at the end of the third What If scenario, but that would mean leaving his two allies to kill each other. So he has to ShootTheDog before offing himself.]]
* MoreHeroThanThou: Has this debate with Igris at the end of ''Horrible''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After [[spoiler: shredding Vahn.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Being unable to save his allies and killing two tributes, one extremely violently.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: His desire to avenge Raivis leads to Eston's death.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: To Vahn.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Realizes that anything bad he says about Vahn would also apply to himself, as they have both been responsible for deaths in the Games.
* PolarOppositeTwins / SiblingYinYang: Amer is outgoing, brave and excitable, while his twin brother Matt is introverted, shy and calm.
* PowerTrio: Twice: first with Raivis and Eston, then Fronce and Igris.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Delivers a magnificent one to Vahn.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Eston and Igris.

* [[spoiler: RussianRoulette: Does a variation involving poison with Igris at the end of ''Horrible''.]]
* SadisticChoice: Being forced to choose between killing himself, thereby traumatizing his brother, and [[spoiler: killing Igris/letting him die]]. In the third What If, he immediately chooses to kill himself, but then has to choose between doing so right away or killing Eston first.

* [[spoiler: ShootTheDog: Does this to Eston in the third What If so he won't have to kill Raivis.]]

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: volunteers to protect Finni in the Hunger Games.
* BeastAndBeauty: with Finni, he being the Beast.
* BerserkButton: anyone threatening or hitting on Finni. [[spoiler: Wiremu finds this out the hard way.]]

* DevotedToYou: towards Finni.
* DoggedNiceGuy: he never gives up on trying to make Finni love him.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: rather than trying to escape the fire the Gamemakers set after them, Sve and Natalya jump into it holding hands as a final act of defiance.]]
* FaceOfAThug / PerpetualFrowner: one of the reasons Finni is so afraid of him.
* FriendlessBackground: hence why he’s so attached to Finni, one of the only people not to immediately shun him.

* HeroicSacrifice: volunteered: and is willing to kill himself - for Finni.
* [[spoiler: HowDareYouDieOnMe]]: says this to Finni.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: By the Capitol's fire.]]

!!Raivis Lithu:

* [[spoiler: {{The Alcoholic}}: In "Hit the Bottle", he tries to [[{{Drowning My Sorrows}} Drown his Sorrows]] after winning the Games.]]
* {{Ascended Extra}}/{{Early Bird Cameo}}: Barely mentioned in ''Brutal'';a rather important character in the sequel. Even more important in one of the What Ifs, and [[spoiler: the central character in the oneshot "Hit the Bottle" (which is based off that What If scenario.)]]
* {{Band of Brothers}}: Part of this with Amer and Eston. Especially pronounced in the third What If.
* {{Broken Bird}}: Sort of. [[spoiler: His brother's death]] made him incredibly paranoid, and the Games did even more to scar him. However, he's not cynical in the slightest.
* {{The Chick}}: He fulfills this role in Amer's first alliance.
* [[spoiler: {{Corrupt the Cutie}}: Becomes a drunkard and almost kills his father in "Hit the Bottle". Fortunately, he gets better.]]

* [[spoiler: {{Drowning My Sorrows}}: After the third What If.]]

* {{Fingore}}: Loses a finger as punishment for trying to escape Vahn's alliance.
* {{Fire Forged Friends}}: With Eston and Amer, particularly in the third What If.
* [[spoiler: {{First Kiss}}: With Raisa in the third What If.]]

* {{Power Trio}}: With Eston and Vahn and Eston and Amer.
* {{Properly Paranoid}}: High-strung, but he is in the Hunger Games...
* [[spoiler: {{Sacrificial Lion}}: His death breaks Amer further.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Horrible'' Females, District 1 - 6]]

!!Ania Jerume:

* {{All Work vs All Play}}: Has shades of this with Rome.
* TheBaroness: Cold, female, villainous, and (presumably) German to boot!
* [[spoiler: {{Big Bad}}: formerly {{The Dragon}} until she turns all [[{{The Starscream}} Starscream-y]] and kills Rome.]]
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: possibly her motive for [[spoiler: killing herself in the sixth What If after she’s gravely wounded by Spain.]]
* {{Blondes Are Evil}}
* {{Broken Bird}}: When she starts getting nightmares.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolanders Minder}}: Has shades of this with Rome.
* {{Dark Action Girl}}
* {{Designated Girl Fight}}: Has a serious death-match with [[spoiler: Greis]]. It's a…tie.
* DragonAscendant
* DragonInChief: she may be Rome's right-hand woman, but [[spoiler: she lasts longer]] and is definitely more of a threat than he is.
* {{Emotionless Girl}}
* {{Pervert Revenge Mode}}: [[spoiler: Her killing of Rome]] has shades of this. Especially when you consider how much she snapped at him for checking her out.
* {{Evil Duo}}: With Rome. Her being the Superego and Rome being the Id.
* {{I Owe You My Life}}: Her whole reason for volunteering for the Games.
* {{Gender Flip}}: Germania sure makes a scary chick…
* {{Heroes Prefer Swords}}: Averted- Ania is ''definitely'' not a hero, and she's great with swords.
* {{Kick Them While They Are Down}}: [[spoiler: To Rome.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* {{Lack of Empathy}}: At first, it's played straight. Then it's unusually averted; Ania gets nightmares from all the people that she's killed.

** It could also be seen as her giving herself a [[spoiler: {{Mercy Kill}}]] to [[IDieFree finally have some control over her fate.]]

* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type IV with Corianne, eventually growing into Type I.

* {{Aw Look They Really Do Love Each Other}}: Gets this quite a bit, particularly when she thinks she and Spain are about to be killed by cat muttations.
* {{Break the Cutie}}

* {{Broken Bird}}: Was on her way to becoming this before [[spoiler: Ania killed her.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: In the third What If.]]

* {{Damsel in Distress}}: Although she tries her hardest to deny it, she really wouldn't have gotten anywhere without Spain.

* {{Fire Forged Friends}}: With Spain, at least before everything goes downhill.

* {{Ship Tease}}: With Spain, though it could just as easily be seen as platonic.
* {{Shorttank}}

** Although her swearing was edited out in later revisions.
* [[spoiler: {{Slashed Throat}}: Dies this way.]]
* SourOutsideSadInside: It's hinted that her gruff exterior is a result of the inferiority she feels over being TheUnfavorite.
* StepfordSnarker
* {{Tears of Remorse}}: After injuring Spain in ''Horrible'' and [[spoiler: actually killing him]] in ''What If''.
* {{Tsundere}}
* {{The Unfavourite}}: Her intro chapter makes it clear that her grandfather preferred Feli to her. It's also telling that he didn't come to see her after the reapings, while apparently giving Feli advice on staying away from Careers when she was reaped.
* {{Unresolved Sexual Tension}}: YMMV, but if you support the {{Ship Tease}} between her and Spain, it's definitely there.
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: After complaining of hunger for quite a while, she and Spain finally get some food donated to them... only for it to be stolen by Sadik.

!!Taberah Atalanta:

* ActionGirl
** DarkActionGirl
* AntiVillain: Type II (or possibly IV). She has no interest in killing people, but does so only to win the money for her ill father. [[spoiler: Outside of the bloodbath, she never succeeds in killing anybody.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: against Gries.]]
* TheDarkChick
* DesignatedGirlFight: [[spoiler: against Gries.]]

* {{Power Trio}}/{{Two Guys and a Girl}}: With Fronce and Igris.

* [[spoiler: {{Spared by Adaptation}}: For a while in the sixth What If.]]

* {{Supreme Chef}}/{{Team Chef}}
* {{Yank the Dogs Chain}}: Sick of Igris and Fronce bossing her around, she sneaks behind their backs and eats the rations they wouldn't let her have. [[spoiler: This turns out to have been a very, very bad idea.]]

* {{The Cynic}}: She's pretty cynical when she [[spoiler: kills her opponents]].
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}
* {{Determinator}}
* {{Emotionless Girl}}
* {{Fauxlosophic Narration}}
* [[spoiler: FinalGirl: In the first What If.]]

* {{Guile Hero}}
* {{Instant Waking Skills}}
* {{Jade Colored Glasses}}
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}]]

* {{Manipulative Bitch}}: She successfully talks [[spoiler: Amer]] into letting himself get killed in ''What If''.
* [[spoiler: {{Mutual Kill}}: With Ania.]]

* {{The Philosopher}}: For Panem's sake, it's the genderbent form of GREECE.
* {{Sleep With One Eye Open}}: What allows her to avoid being killed by [[spoiler: Taberah]].
* {{Sleepyhead}}
* {{Teen Genius}}: Sadik mentions that she's the top student in Math and Philosophy. And then, think of all her philosophizing, her common sense, and her plans for the Games...
* {{Took a Level in Badass}}: Almost sleeps through her interview, spends most of her time hiding ... then [[spoiler: kills a career when half-asleep]]!
* VitriolicBestBuds: Sort of, kinda hinted at with Sadik. Definitely goes towards this trope in the "If NOFOJ Wasn't NOFOJ" chapter of ''What If''.
* {{Wake Up Fighting}}: A bit zigzagged when she [[spoiler: spears Taberah with her curvy-weapon-thing]].
* {{Warrior Poet}}: In between bouts of philosophy, she also manages to kill at least two people.

!!Natalya Larus:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: towards Vahn. Not because she's ugly, but because she's his sister.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: thankfully, Vahn never returns her feelings.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: of the rare StalkerWithACrush variety.
* AvengingTheVillain: [[spoiler: defied;]] she is mature enough to realize that [[spoiler: killng Amer]] will not [[spoiler: bring Vahn back to her.]]

* ClingyJealousGirl
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath / KillItWithFire]]

When [[spoiler: they are punished for this,]] they decide to [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity by deciding just when to die rather than trying to escape.]]
* DespairEventHorizon / HeroicBSOD: after [[spoiler: Vahn dies.]] In the third What if, this is so extreme that she [[spoiler: loses the will to feed herself and dies of dehydration.]]
* Determinator: say what you want about her, but there’s something to be said for scouring an entire mountain for your brother over two days on the sustenance of nothing but an apple.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: rather than trying to escape the fire the Gamemakers set after them, she and Sve jump into it holding hands as a final act of defiance.]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* LighterAndSofter: her portrayal here, as opposed to the portrayal of Belarus in many other fanworks, including the author’s other Hetalia fic, FanFic/TheRules. Her canon Yandere and KnifeNut tendencies are often taken UpToEleven in fanworks; here, the worst thing she does is stalk Vahn and try to break down his door, [[spoiler: never killing or even harming another tribute.]]
* LoveMakesYouCrazy
* NotBloodSiblings: with Vahn, although it’s not used to justify the squickiness of their relationship.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* SingleTargetSexuality: towards Vahn.

* [[spoiler: {{Dies Wide Shut}}]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: this is a big part of what makes Sve so attracted to her.
* {{Gender Flip}}
* [[spoiler: {{Kill the Cutie}}]]

* {{Living Emotional Crutch}}: To Sve. When [[spoiler: she dies]], he feels he has no purpose left in life.

* {{Accidental Murder}}: [[spoiler: Vahn wasn't entirely intending to kill her with that pickaxe.]]
* {{Doomed by Canon}}: In ''The Hunger Games'', District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so you pretty much know she's going to die.

[[folder: ''Miserable'' Males, District 1 - 6]]

!!Osso Torya:

--> "I also wouldn't be in the Games if it were not for my parents. I find no particular joy in the idea of killing, but my parents want to add an extra bit of fame to the name Torya. I suppose I'm somewhat of a pawn, if one chooses to look at it that way. I don't mind. I have to do something with my life, and constant luxury is really quite boring."\\


* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Even his own Career pack (with the exception of Magya) hates him.
* {{Adaptational Badass}}: The Austria in Hetalia may have been trained to be a fighter, but he eventually devolves into the pampered prince he is today. But in ''Miserable'', although he's still pampered, he definitely knows how to use a sword.
* {{Adaptational Villainy}}
* [[spoiler: {{Alas Poor Villain}}: Justified, as his death is witnessed by his closest ally Magya.]]
* AntiVillain: Type I. Still a villain in every sense of the word, but his relationship with Magya gives him a far more human side, he's much less ruthless than some of the series' other villains, and his eventually realization and acceptance that [[spoiler: he will most likely die]] makes him sympathetic. .
* {{Arch Enemy}}: To Ilber.
* {{Aristocrats Are Evil}}: He's considered to be an aristocrat, and he's also a Career, so...
* {{Badass}}: See Crowning Moment of Awesome.
** {{Badass in Distress}}: When [[spoiler: Ilber takes him down and Magya has to save him.]]
* BattleCouple: With Magya, albeit of the ShipTease variety.
* BigBad: of the ''Miserable'' career pack.
* BrainyBrunette
* [[spoiler: {{Break the Badass}}: Once Ilber breaks his arm, forcing him to realize he won't be going home alive.]]
* BreakTheHaughty
* {{The Chessmaster}}: The level of planning he does...it hurts my head sometimes...and, as Obiwanlivesforever said so herself in an earlier review, he's ONE CRAFTY BOY.
* {{Common Sense}}
* CryForTheDevil
* {{Cultured Badass}}: He's been living a rich, pampered life- I'm pretty sure that he's been raised to live a refined life.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: He's never speechless for a comeback, whenever Ilber tries to diss him.
* DefrostingIceKing: Gradually lets more and more of his soft side show when he's with Magya.
* {{Evil vs Evil}}: In his duel with Ilber.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: after [[spoiler: his arm is broken]], he faces [[spoiler: the likelihood of his death with solemn acceptance.]]
* FreudianExcuse: his sole reason for volunteering was family pressure.
* {{Genius Bruiser}}
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}]]
* {{The Load}}: To Magya, once he breaks his arm. Not that she seems to mind.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Is hated or feared by everyone in the pack, with the exception of Magya.
* LoveIsAWeakness: Tells Magya right at the beginning that there is absolutely no room for romance in the Games. This doesn't stop the ShipTease, of course.
* {{Megane}}
* {{Manipulative Bastard}}: Has shades of this, with his constant scheming.
* NeatFreak
* {{Only Sane Man}}: In the career pack. Arguably shares this role with Magya, if you overlook her occasional killing sprees and harsh sense of mercy.
* {{Pet the Dog}}: When he doesn't kill [[spoiler: Feli]], when he saves her from the fish mutt (though it's arguable how much of this was out of goodness and how much was out of gaining Sheen's loyalty), and many of his moments with Magya.
* {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}es: A lot of the Careers kept on giving him these.
* {{Red Oni Blue Oni}}: Blue Oni to Ilber.
* {{Ship Tease}}: OH SO MUCH WITH MAGYA.
* {{Spoiled Sweet}}: He's rich and kind of spoiled, but he's not TOO snobby (but that may be a YMMV).
* {{The Stoic}}
* {{Stoic Spectacles}}
* {{Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome}}: Not him specifically, but the Hetalia character he's based off of. Austria was "good" in Brutal and reimagined here as a Career.
* {{Sugar and Ice Personality}}
* {{Tall Dark and Snarky}}
* [[spoiler: {{Villain Decay}}: Justified; he loses a lot of his threat once Ilber nearly kills him and breaks his arm.]]
* {{Villainous Friendship}}: Type 1 between him and Magya (also with possible {{Ship Tease}}.)
* [[spoiler: {{Villainous Valor}}: Fights bravely against Sui and Norge until the end, even managing to hurl a cleaver at the latter's back.]]
* {{Wicked Cultured}}
* {{Would Hit a Girl}}: Shoots Saki with his arrows and kills [[spoiler: Bell]].

!!Sheen Sehre:

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Despite all his efforts, Feli never truly reciprocates his feelings (though [[spoiler: her grief over his death]] could arguably count).
* [[spoiler: AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: His dying thoughts.]]
* AntiVillain: Type IV. He's a Career, but rarely does anything malevolent and spends most of his time trying to protect Feli.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Even if it means driving himself to the point of exhaustion, dragging down the whole Career pack, and planning to sacrifice his own life.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Feli; he being the Beast.
* BetaCouple: He and Feli are this for the overall series.
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: Norge doesn't even give him a chance.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: to Feli.
* DiminishingVillainThreat: Albeit in a somewhat positive way. He goes from having an 11 in training to being TheLoad to the Career pack and getting [[spoiler: [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomped]] by Norge]], but all for Feli.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Feli.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Apparently, he dreamed about Feli long before actually meeting her.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Perfectly willing to fight and die for a girl he's known for about a week. Though, to be fair, he thinks he's seen her in a dream before, and that they're fated to be together.
* [[spoiler: FirstKiss / LastKiss: Shares his only kiss with Feli as he lies dying.]]
* HurtingHero: Goes through physical and emotional turmoil, all to protect Feli.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* TheLoad: Wears himself out so much searching for Feli that he becomes this to the Careers.
* LoveAtFirstSight: falls head-over-heels for Feli the instant he sees her. (Although he believes he's seen her before in a dream.)
* LoveHurts
* LoveMartyr
* LoveRedeems: He most likely would have stayed a cold-hearted Career if it hadn't been for Feli.
* MercifulMinion: Subverted - he fully intended to kill Bell at the bloodbath, but let her go in order to run after Feli.
* NiceGuy: For a Career.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown / NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler: Dies this way at the hands of Norge.]]
* OfficialCouple: He and Feli are this for ''Miserable'', though they're more of a BetaCouple for the overall series.
* [[spoiler: RasputinianDeath]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* SelfSacrificeScheme: This most likely would have been his plan, if he and Feli had lived long enough to be the final two.
* SingleTargetSexuality: The second he sees Feli, he's certain he's destined for her.
* StalkerWithACrush: Pretty much, although he's portrayed sympathetically.
* StarCrossedLovers: Him and Feli, though it's largely one-sided on her part.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Apparently his usual demeanor is aloof and arrogant, but he sheds this immediately when it comes to Feli.
* [[spoiler: TogetherInDeath: With Feli.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Feli.
* VillainBallMagnet: Despite doing everything he can to convince Feli he's on her side, she nevertheless remains terrified of him for almost the entire fic.
* VillainousCrush: On Feli. Of the 'LoveRedeems' type.
* WouldHitAGirl: Unless she's Feli. He [[spoiler: was about to kill Bell]] at the bloodbath, after all.

!!Snuff Eitchpy:

-->"I'm only 12 — and I've only been that for about a week — and I'm not that strong or anything. I kind of... I don't have good odds. I'll try to get out and everything, but I'm really not that optimistic about this."\\

!!Antonio Spey:

* AdaptationalVillainy
* AffablyEvil: A pretty amicable guy, despite being a trained killer and all.
* AnAxeToGrind
* AntiVillain: a dark Type IV. He spends more of his time flirting than doing anything actively malevolent, and [[spoiler: never kills anyone outside of the bloodbath.]] Despite this, he still opposes the protagonists.
* BoisterousBruiser: Comes off as one in his interview, acting both amiable and deadly.
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]

* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* NiceGuy: For a Career.
* PetTheDog: His words to Fili at the interviews.

* WouldHitAGirl: He kills [[spoiler: Saki]] at the bloodbath.
* [[spoiler: UndignifiedDeath: He's eaten alive by a fish muttation while swimming in the river.]]

!!Shiran Kirkland:

* AdaptationalBadass: In his final battle.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: A cute little kid with surprising maturity (at times).

* [[spoiler: BondingOverMissingParents: He bonds with Amer over their missing friend/brother, Igris.]]
* BreakTheCutie: He comes dangerously close to this, almost losing all hope after [[spoiler: being shot with an arrow. Winning the Games and meeting Amer]] seems to help him get somewhat better, though.
* CheerfulChild
* ChekhovsHobby: Good thing he [[spoiler: knows how to swim]]!
* [[spoiler: DarkHorseVictory]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Approaches it after [[spoiler: Plutonia dies]] and he no longer has any reason to keep up his cheerful facade; comes very close to crossing it after [[spoiler: being shot by Ise]].
* DeterminedDefeatist: Knows (or thinks) he's going to die, but keeps putting on a happy face for his family and ally. Even [[spoiler: at the climax, when he's mortally wounded and has to fight an older tribute with an axe]], he fights for his life despite knowing (supposedly) it won't do any good.
* DistressedDude
* FriendlessBackground: like Igris, he was quite lonely back home, especially since [[spoiler: he no longer has an older brother to tease.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: a cute, optimistic, innocent child with blonde hair.
* HeroicBSOD: see DespairEventHorizon.
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity: Acted in this way when he thought Norge was going to kill him. Fortunately for him, it didn't go quite as planned.]]

* NonActionGuy: For the most part.

* SpoiledSweet
* StepfordSmiler: Type A
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Apparently looks quite similar to Igris.
* [[spoiler: SurvivorsGuilt: Nowhere near as pronounced as with the two other Victors, though.]]
* TalkingToTheDead: Does this on occasion with [[spoiler: Igris]].
* TrueCompanions: With Plutonia, then [[spoiler: Amer in the epilogue]].
* [[spoiler: UnderdogsNeverLose]]

!!Aurth Unikin:

* [[spoiler: UndignifiedDeath: strangled by his own hood when a large bird muttation lifts him off the ground.]]

* KickTheDog: When advancing to kill Ise, he casually smacks Mr. Puffin with his sword for no legitimate reason.
* KilledOffForReal
* LaughablyEvil: YMMV, but while he's without doubt an antagonist, his arrogance also makes him one of the funniest characters in ''Miserable''.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: Gives one to poor Snuff.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: After chapter upon chapter of being pushed around by Osso, he [[spoiler: nearly CurbStompBattle Curb Stomps him (and would have if it hadn't been for Magya).]]

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Enjoys giving these to Osso.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Osso.
* [[spoiler: ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Gets fed up with Osso's leadership and makes his own (short-lived) alliance with Journs and Ax.]]
* ShipTease / MinionShipping: Arguably with Ax, though she's MasterOfTheMixedMessage, adoring him one moment and snubbing him the next.
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat: Dies this way.]]
* SixthRanger: not initially a member of the Career pack, but joins them during training. Although once he gets into the group, he fulfills the role of TheBrute. This also makes him...
** [[spoiler: SixthRangerTraitor]]
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SmugSnake: Though it's usually Osso who fulfills this role, Ilber shows shades of it when [[spoiler: he nearly kills Osso in their duel]].
* [[spoiler: TerribleTrio: His new alliance, with him as the head and Ax and Journs as the henchmen.]]
* [[spoiler: TheStarscream: Despite not being TheDragon in Osso's Career pack, he still fulfills this role perfectly, betraying the alliance with intent to take over as leader.]]

* [[spoiler: TwoGirlsAndAGuy: With Ax and Journs.]]
* [[spoiler: UndignifiedDeath: Has his throat ripped out by a puffin.]]

* {{An Ax to Grind}}: Thanks to a certain forgetful Career, Norge manages to acquire a trusty companion to [[spoiler: protect his little brother]] with.
* {{Anti Hero}}: Type III or IV. Okay, so he wants to [[spoiler: protect his little brother]]- that's pretty heroic. But wait…HE JUST [[spoiler: HACKED APART SHEEN'S GUTS]]! And… oh my gosh… now he's trying to kill a thirteen year old?!
* {{Ax Crazy}}: Eventually happens throughout the Games, to the point where [[spoiler: he's too crazy to know that he just killed his own brother]].

* [[spoiler: {{Long Lost Sibling}}: He is Ise's half-brother.]]
* {{Not So Stoic}}: What happens when [[spoiler: Ise is revealed to be his half-brother.]]

* [[spoiler: {{Sociopathic Hero}}: He wants to protect Ise from the Games, but he is also willing to kill a thirteen-year old to succeed.]]

* {{The Stoic}}: His initial personality.
* WouldHitAGirl: will attack anyone who stands in the way of Ise's victory, whether they're taking the offensive - like [[spoiler: Magya]] - or not - like [[spoiler: Sui]].
* [[spoiler: {{Yandere}}: A brotherly version. Norge goes to extreme lengths to protect his beloved little brother.]]

!!Ise Javik:

* [[spoiler: AloofBigBrother: Aloof Little Half-Brother to Norge.]]
* ChekhovsSkill: His skill in archery is mentioned during training and crops up again at the feast.
* ConflictingLoyalty: Between Norge and his parents. Kill [[spoiler: his half-brother]] to go home or die in his place and break his family's heart?
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler: his death]] serves as this for [[spoiler: Norge.]]
* [[spoiler: DeathByIrony: An extremely dark example; he is killed by the person sworn to protect him.]]
* DefrostingIceKing: To an extent; he wants little to do with Norge when [[spoiler: he first finds out they're related]], but one of the last actions he performs is [[spoiler: treating his half-brother's wounds]]. And then everything goes wrong.
* DirtyBusiness: How he views [[spoiler: shooting Shiran and most likely having to kill Norge]]. He definitely doesn't want to do such things, but knows he has to if he wants to get home.

* TheStoic
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* WouldHitAGirl: Fights just as hard against Magya as he would against any other opponent. It helps that she was attacking [[spoiler: his brother]] at the time.

* WhatTheHellHero: Calls Norge out for kicking [[spoiler: Sheen]] when he's down.

!!Den Copen:

* AdaptationalVillainy
* [[spoiler: AssholeVictim: Tina may be driven to insanity from the guilt of his death, but it's unlikely the readers feel the same way. He was (probably) about to kill her and Sui, after all.]]
* AnAxeToGrind: Wanted one of these from the bloodbath, but had to settle for a cleaver.
* AffablyEvil: Remains eerily good-natured, even when ordering Sui and Tina to look for victims or advancing slowly on them with a cleaver.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Not evil, of course, but one of the more antagonistic tributes.
* BloodKnight: Though never actually reaching this level, he seemed to have tendencies towards it, and might have gone all the way if [[spoiler: he hadn't been killed early by Tina]].
* BoisterousBruiser: Easygoing, fun-loving, and completely eager to fight.
* CurbStompBattle: When he goes up against Tina.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Not that he's evil, but he specifically says that even though he's willing to kill the competition, he won't sink so low as to torture them. Nor will he force Sui and Tina to kill others, at least "not yet."
* {{Jerkass}}: What he ultimately reveals himself to be.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* NiceGuy: Seems like this at first.
* OminousWalk: When approaching Sui and Tina after they leave his alliance.

* CatchPhrase: "X was made in Korea!"
* CheerfulChild
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* DaytimeDramaQueen: Obsessed with Capitol soap operas ... even when being carted off to his death.
* DoomedByCanon: in Literature/TheHungerGames, District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so you pretty much know he's going to die.
* {{Keet}}
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* ThePollyanna
* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb]]
* TooHappyToLive
* TooDumbToLive: Has no problem with watching TV instead of discussing strategy with his mentor, because apparently everything he'll need to win the Games is in his blood. After all, [insert combat skill here] was "made in Korea!"

!!Livna Wickham:

-->"Did I ever mention I have the memory of an old-man goldfish?"\\


* {{An Axe To Grind}}: Ties in with {{Meaningful Name}}.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Who dreams about TEA in the Hunger Games?...
* {{Dark Chick}}
* [[spoiler: {{Et Tu Brute}}: THANKS TO THAT STUPID ILBER. ]]

* {{Fun Size}}/{{Teens Are Short}}: She states that she's rather small.
* {{InSeries Nickname}}
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* MinionWithAnFInEvil
* {{Not So Different}}: It's not really explored much in the story, but many a reader has realized that Ax, despite being a Career, isn't too different from many of the other defenseless tributes. In fact, she's quite quirky.
* {{Only Known by Their Nickname}}: Everyone calls her Ax; in fact, she's the one who insisted that they call her this.
* {{Perky Female Minion}}: She has shades of this with both Osso and Ilber.
* {{Ship Tease}}: A bit with Ilber.

-->"Not only have people been tortured, they've starved and burned and just withered away, so slowly... I want to save at least one Games from so much of that."\\


* {{Absolute Cleavage}}: Her interview dress.
* {{AntiVillain}}: a very well-done Type III.

* {{Boobs of Steel}}: Her figure's implied to be "not that bad", and she's also the Career with the most kills.

* NobleTopEnforcer
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery
* {{Ship Tease}}: Her and Osso, OH SO MUCH.
* ShootTheDog: Her entire point of being in the Games.
* {{Team Mom}}
* TokenGoodTeammate: While not necessarily 'good,' she volunteered so that there would be a [[MercyKill Mercy Killer]] among the tributes and is a pretty amiable person when not on the hunt.
* {{Tomboy}}: It's mentioned in Chapter 11 that she'd often dress up in boy's clothes and would prefer sneakers over "glimmering things".
* {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}: Ties into the reason why she wants to go on a killing spree and become the Victor. She wants to make sure nobody feels any pain from the Games- by killing them herself.

!!Feli Vargas:

* AngstySurvivingTwin
* {{Ascended Extra}}: See main trope.
* BreakTheCutie: a process which apparently started with [[spoilers: her sister's]] death.

!!Journs Skyop:

-->"Blood has such a beautiful colour, you know? And the shining, crimson textures on mutilated flesh are so much more interesting than bland, rough skin."\\


* {{Adorkable}}: She has shades of this- EVEN WHEN SHE'S THINKING OF HOW BLOODSOAKED SKINS ARE PRETTY.
* {{Affably Evil}}: Even while she's wondering on how to kill people in the goriest way possible, you still can't help but think that she's rather nice.
* {{Author Avatar}}: THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NUMBER ONE FAN OF JOURNEY.
* {{Blood Knight}}
* CuteAndPsycho:
--> Antonio: "She's amicable, but curiously bloodthirsty."\\
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}
* {{Establishing Character Moment}} When her inner monologue is concerned with trying to find new, more entertaining ways of killing people.
* [[spoiler: {{Et Tu Brute}}: ILBER BETRAYED HER AND AXXI.]]
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Type II.
* {{Genre Savvy}}: She knows what kind of angles tributes usually take.
* {{Gorn}}: She's a major fangirl of this.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* NightmareFetishist
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: to [[spoiler: Paliss.]]
* {{Ship Tease}}: There's the barest hint of some, between her and Antonio. You can find it in her introductory chapter.
* {{Softspoken Sadist}}: You never see her yelling like a maniac, and she sure sounded like she enjoyed [[spoiler: bashing Paliss's head into the metal platform…]]
* {{Teen Genius}}: She has shown implications of this when giving advice to Ilber and Ax while they're training.

!!Wy Micra:

* BigOlEyebrows
* {{Flat Character}}: The most you get out of her is that she's an artist.
* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie]]
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb]]
* {{Scenery Porn}}: Her narrative is full of artistic imagery.
* {{Ship Tease}}: Magya says that she's been noticing that Seborga's been flirting quite a bit with Wy… Not that it'll really amount to much when the Games start.

!!Bell Gique:

* {{Cool Big Sis}}: Has shades of this to both Feli and her own little sister, Luxy.
* [[spoiler: {{Dropped a Bridge on Her}}: Her death just barely gets mentioned in one or two sentences.]]
* {{Girl Next Door}}
* {{Irony}}: The Tragic kind. See Tearjerker.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* {{Life or Limb Decision}}: Okay, Bell, whatchya gonna do: cut off your most-likely-infected hand? Or go on with the pain...

[[folder: ''Miserable'' Females, District 7 - 12]]

!!Saki Beebul:

-->"Ha! You guys can't kill me if you can't even catch me!"\\

* AnnoyingArrows: subverted; she barely notices when [[spoiler: Osso shoots her]] and continues running for a while, but the pain eventually catches up to her and [[spoiler: she collapses long enough for Antonio to kill her.]]
* {{Bookworm}}: She even wishes that she had an electronic device to read during the parade.
* {{Blood Knight}}: Seems to have slight implications of this, as she thinks the Games are cool- especially for the fighting and the blood.
* {{Kick Chick}}: [[spoiler: If she lived long enough, she could've been one.]] She even states that she can kick people as an attack.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb]]
* {{Tomboy}}
* {{Write Who You Know}}: Based on Socbballluvr13.

!!Paliss Crai:

* BreakTheCutie: More like 'broken from the moment we meet her.'
** [[spoiler: KillTheCutie]]
* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath]]
* FragileFlower
* HystericalWoman
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: NoHoldsBarredBeatdown / NoKillLikeOverkill: Dies this way at the hands of Journs.]]
* NiceGirl
* [[spoiler: RedShirt]]
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLamb]]
* TearsOfFear: Pretty much her defining trait.
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe]]

!!Tina Sinki:

* ActionGirl: For a brief, but incredibly awesome, moment when [[spoiler: she kills Den]].
* {{Adaptational Badass}}: Certainly not ''Hetalia'', as seeing Finland's pretty badbutt in the series. But this version of Finland does far more than Finni from ''Horrible''.
* {{Beware the Nice Ones}}: See the trope on the main page.
* {{Break The Cutie}}
* [[spoiler: {{Broken Bird}} ]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She becomes one when she snaps from the mental pressure of [[spoiler: killing Den]].

* EvilMeScaresMe: Likely the reason behind her snapping.
* GenderFlip
* {{Genki Girl}}: pre-Hunger Games

* LetsGetDangerous
* LittleMissBadass: For about two seconds, while [[spoiler: Curb-Stomping Den.]]
* TheLoad: This being the main reason [[spoiler: Sui abandoned her]]
* {{My God What Have I Done}}: After she [[spoiler: kills Den]].
* {{Naive Everygirl}}
* {{Nice Girl}}
* TheOphelia
* PluckyGirl: Can be seen as a variation, both pre- and post-snapping. Beforehand, she's ThePollyanna, and while she does lose her mind, she's not so much broken as cheerfully oblivious to everything around her. Heck, her reaction to confronting an enraged, knife-wielding Magya is to run off giggling.
* {{The Pollyanna}}: pre-Hunger Games
* PowerTrio / TwoGirlsAndAGuy: With Sui and Den.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: She and Sui flee Den's alliance when he gets a little too insistent on killing. Unfortunately, it only makes things worse.

* TranslatorBuddy: Translates Sui's [[TheUnintelligible mumbling speech]] for Den.

--> "I slowly and nervously walk towards the lunch area, trying to find the boy my mentor told me to ally with. Let's see... He was blonde, and one year younger than me. Not that I can really tell how old a person is by looking at them, but..."\\

* {{Blue Oni Red Oni}}: The blue oni to Shiran's energetic red oni.
* {{Cloudcuckoolanders Minder}}: Or, rather, the {{Keet}}'s minder.
* {{Extreme Doormat}}: Has shades of it.
--> "I really don't think I'm going to win this. I'm not sure why I'm going to try. I don't know. Just because I should. Because my family and my mentor told me to."\\
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When she and Shiran find a waterfall, Plutonia worries about how fast it's going. And then, some chapters later, [[spoiler: you see how she dies…]]
* [[spoiler: {{Forgotten Fallen Friend}}: Shiran pretty much forgets about her after she drowns.]]
* {{Grew A Spine}}: Somewhere along the Games, she gets enough backbone to freak out on Shiran when he does some potentially dangerous stuff.
* [[spoiler: KillItWithWater]]: she [[spoiler: drowns]] as a result of staying behind to warn Shiran of the impending danger.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: {{Kill The Cutie}}]]
* {{Lovable Coward}}: And nobody really blames her for it.
* {{Nice Girl}}
* {{No One Gets Left Behind}}: Used for maximum [[{{Tearjerker}} Tearjerking]] effect.
* {{Not So Above It All}}: Shiran points this out when he catches Plutonia splashing water on herself- the same water that she was previously scared of. Plutonia, being her usual {{Adorkable}} self, starts getting flustered.
* {{Odd Friendship}}: She's a {{Shrinking Violet}} and Shiran's a {{Keet}}. This could be a platonic {{Opposites Attract}} situation.
* {{Plucky Girl}}: [[spoiler: In her last moments, when she refuses to abandon Shiran.]]
* {{Properly Paranoid}}
* PuppyLove: Surprisingly averted. The most you get from their relationship is an entirely platonic, sweet relationship that warms your heart.
* {{The Quiet One}}
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* {{Shrinking Violet}}
* [[spoiler: {{Super Drowning Skills}}: Played horrifyingly straight and completely justified.]]
* {{True Companions}}: With Shiran.

!!Sui Holmes:

* ActionGirl: Towards the end.

* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Briefly, to Tina, until she decides [[spoiler: that she can't bear the strain and abandons her.]]
* 'Determinator'
* DirtyBusiness: Her thoughts on [[spoiler: abandoning Tina]]. She feels she has to do it, but that doesn't stop her from being consumed by guilt for nearly the rest of the fic.
* EmotionlessGirl: Rarely displays open emotion, even when racked with guilt over [[spoiler: abandoning Tina]]. It's only through her inner monologue that we realize how she feels.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Her first impression of Den is that he's not trustworthy. Tina really should have listened to her.
* GenderFlip
* KickTheDog: highly YMMV, but one could see [[spoiler: her abandonment of a mentally-scarred Tina]] as this.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler: MercifulMinion: Den sends her out to find tributes to kill, but she can't bring herself to report the young and obviously terrified Shiran and Plutonia to him.]]

* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat: Dies this way.]]
* TheUnintelligible: Tina has to translate her mumbling for Den.

* {{Write Who You Know}}: NOFO Journey based this OC on Obiwanlivesforever.

!!Riben Wang:

* ActualPacifist: Is extremely opposed to killing, due to the fact that [[spoiler: his sister died in a previous game.]] True to his beliefs, he never raises a finger against another tribute in the arena, [[spoiler: which has dire consequences for him when he wins without killing.]]
* AscendedExtra / Early Bird Cameo: He gets a brief mention in China's first POV in ''Horrible'', in which she states he's the only male she's known to [[NonActionGuy never do anything 'manly.']]

* {{Bilingual Bonus}}: His name is "Japan" in Chinese.

* DespairEventHorizon / HeroicBSOD: Lost all joy in life when [[spoiler: his sister was killed.]]
* DistressedDude: see Actual Pacifist entry above. Ermine often has to defend him and Italo from muttations and other tributes.
* [[spoiler: DoomedByCanon]]: It’s inevitable that [[spoiler: he’ll die sometime before the end of the rebellion,]] seeing as he is (obviously) not among [[spoiler: the surviving Victors mentioned in Mockingjay.]] In fact, it’s hinted that he’s [[spoiler: the District 6 male who dies in the Quarter Quell during [[{{TheHungerGames}} Catching Fire.]]]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: His ultimate fate - the Capitol punishes his defiance by killing off anyone he becomes emotionally attached to, dooming him to live without the most basic of human relationships.]]

** To elaborate: [[spoiler: losing his sister]] depressed him so much that he usually confined himself to his room.

* IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure: the Capitol [[spoiler: executes his parents and anyone else he grows close to]] because he [[spoiler: won the Games without killing anyone.]]

* NonActionGuy: both he and Italo serve as the NonActionGuy to Ermine’s ActionGirl.
* NotAfraidToDie: Ever since [[spoiler: the death of his sister,]] he sees no real purpose in living and resigns himself to dying at the bloodbath rather than killing to survive.

* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: with Ermine and Italo.
* TheQuietOne: Typically avoids company, due to his emotionally fragile nature.
* [[spoiler: SoleSurvivor]]

[[folder: ''Unsurvivable'' Males, District 7 - 12]]

!!Turk Adnan:

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: His little brother, Heracles, seems to be this to him. They squabble even during the post-reaping goodbyes!

* CurbStompBattle: Egypt can’t hold his own against him, leading to Turk claiming him as his ‘property’ rather than his ally.
** His fight against [[spoiler: Nada]] also counts.
* DumbMuscle: Impressive in combat, but more than a little dense. [[DeadpanSnarker Romania]] lampshades it often.
* HonorBeforeReason: Often gives his opponents an advantage if he doesn’t feel the fight is fair, such as letting Romania have the first hit and urging [[spoiler: Nada]] to fight harder.

* TheChick / TheLancer: In his alliance with Ermine and Riben.

* DistressedDude: Ermine has her hands full keeping him and Riben from harm.
* FragileSpeedster: Physically very weak, but Ermine doubts that even the Careers could catch up to him when he’s running.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Lets his guard down with [[spoiler: Cisca, even though she’s a Career.]] It helps that [[spoiler: she’s untrained and very persuasive,]] but he still should have known better than to trust a stranger so far in the Games. [[spoiler: It costs him his life.]]
* [[spoiler: [[{{KilledMidSentence}} Killed Mid Word]]]]: While calling for Ermine.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* TheLoad: He doesn't do much more than eat, sleep, whine and cook in the alliance.

* FriendOrFoe: Due to the two girls’ similar appearances, he mistakes Nada for Rica one night and attacks her before realizing she’s his ally.

* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]
* TokenMinority: One of the few black characters in the series, along with Philan, Shaye and Egypt.
* WouldHitAGirl: Seems to relish the opportunity to fight Rica. He’s far from the type to hurt a girl in cold blood, though.

* [[spoiler: DoomedByCanon]]: In The Hunger Games,[[spoiler: District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so it's certain from the start that he's going to die.]]

* [[spoiler: KillItWithIce]]: [[spoiler: he's crushed when part of an ice cave falls in on him.]]

* [[spoiler: KillTheCutie]]
* LastNameBasis: With Zavann.
* TrueCompanions: Was becoming this with Zavann [[spoiler: before they both died]].

!!Ermine Lutz:

* AccidentalMurder: Italo [[spoiler: slips her some poison,]] wanting to see how it will work and not realizing that [[spoiler: it will kill his friend.]]
* ActionGirl: One of the series' most prominent non-villainous examples.
* AllWorkVsAllPlay: The all work to Italo's all play.
* [[spoiler: BreakTheBadass]]: A long, slow process, beginning with her fear of not being able to protect her allies and culminating in [[spoiler: her Despair Event Horizon after Italo’s death.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: Takes her allies' wellbeing very seriously.
* DespairEventHorizon / HeroicBSOD: After [[spoiler: Italo dies.]]
* DirtyBusiness: She doesn’t want to kill [[spoiler: Zavann]] when she finds [[spoiler: him]] lying unconscious on the ground, but [[spoiler: can’t think of any reason the Capitol wouldn’t punish her for sparing him.]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: Attempts to whip Italo into a competent ally this way.
* EvilMeScaresMe: Preoccupied with the fear that she’ll become a murderer, in spite of – or [[{{HeWhoFightsMonsters}} because of]] – her devotion to her allies.
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge / NoKillLikeOverkill: There’s a reason why [[spoiler: her killing of Cisca is listed under Nightmare Fuel.]]
* FailureToSaveMurder: Some of her troubled inner dialogue hints that she’ll see herself as a murderer if Italo or Riben die when she could have protected them.
* GenderFlip: She's Nyotalia Germany.
* GeniusBruiser: A formidable fighter as well as a very strategic, logical thinker.
* GermanicDepressives / GermanicEfficiency: Much like her Hetalia counterpart, she's German, uncompromisingly strict and depressing.
* TheHero / TheBigGuy: Serves as this in the alliance with Italo and Ermine.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: [[spoiler: Courtesy of Italo's AccidentalMurder.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Has this dynamic with Italo.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Done subtly. She attempts to push away the remorse she feels after [[spoiler: killing Zavann]], but is noticeably unsettled. Later, in Italo’s POV, she is seen obsessively sorting out containers – a routine she uses to calm herself down and clear her mind in moments of guilt.
** Subverted with [[spoiler: Cisca's death.]] Ermine seems shocked at the violent extremes to which she went, but still feels [[spoiler: Cisca]] deserved it, and is more concerned with [[spoiler: Italo’s death]] than anything else.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Saving Riben from – and killing – two giant fox mutts.
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: Kills Zavann this way.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: To four Careers at once to protect her allies. In a much darker twist, [[spoiler: she does the same to Cisca later.]]
* NotSoStoic: Initially appears completely stern and serious-minded, but as the Games wear on, she begins to display more fear, guilt, and self-doubt, culminating in [[spoiler: a RoaringRampageOfRevenge]] and finally [[spoiler: a HeroicBSOD.]]
* OddFriendship: Scatterbrained, fun-loving Italo and intelligent, no-nonsense Ermine.
* PerfectPoison: averted; [[spoiler: it takes her at least a day to die from the poison Italo gave her.]]
* PowerTrio / TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Italo and Ermine.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Inverted with her and Italo.
* [[{{HeWhoFightsMonsters}} She Who Fights Monsters]]: Her protectiveness towards her allies intensifies in obsession until [[spoiler: she kills Cisca in a manner far more sadistic than was merited.]]
* ShipTease: Exactly how she feels about Italo is never stated. She clearly cares deeply for him beneath her harsh exterior, to the point of [[spoiler: going into a HeroicBSOD over his death]] and saying he is all she is fighting for. Riben states that she “loved him,” but doesn’t elaborate.
** WordOfGod has stated that Ermine “didn’t think about it too much,” but that a romantic interpretation of her feelings is definitely an option.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Treats Italo with uncompromising severity, but shows great affection for him deep down. She’s also quite kind to Riben.
* SuperOCD: She organizes supplies to calm herself down in stressful situations. This later comes back in an extremely disturbing way when she [[spoiler: kills Cisca, removing her teeth, eyes and fingers in a neat, symmetrical fashion.]]
* ToughLove: All the time towards Italo. For all the times she criticizes him, it's clearly done to help him survive.
* VillainCorner: Starts to fear she is entering it [[spoiler: when she worries she might murder her allies.]]
* WomenAreWiser: Acts as TheSmartGuy in her alliance, compared to the ditzy Italo.

* FragileFlower: Is close to tears when Holland tells her they're not friends.
* FragileSpeedster: Not the best fighter, but she can outrun a bear and the Careers (though they ''were'' distracted by fighting Cuba.)
* GenderFlip: Nyotalia Canada.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Is blonde and one of the sweetest tributes in the series.
* NonHumanSidekick: a polar bear cub creatively named 'white bear.' This gets her into quite a bit of trouble when [[spoiler: its {{Mama Bear}} comes along.]]
