Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Being mistaken for the US state of Georgia.


* WeUsedToBeFriends: Inverted. He has had pretty tense relationships with a lot of western countries in the past (particularly USA and UK), but has become quite friendly with them these days, as he is grateful at them for helping him remove ISIS, although past occurrences still make their relationships kind of rocky.

rocky. [[https://i.redd.it/ua7icikedsq31.png The same could be said about Iran as well]].

Added DiffLines:

* AntagonisticOffspring: To the United Kingdom in the past. They get a long ''much'' better than they used to.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeAndInCharge: He's a huge country with the second-highest population in the world, so he's sometimes drawn much bigger than his neighbors. This tends to be averted whenever he goes head-to-head with Pakistan, as they're usually drawn the same size.

Added DiffLines:

* MessianicArchetype: Amusingly, he is also used as a stand-in for UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} (who was Jewish) whenever a cross is depicted in the comic with Israelcube hanging from it.

Added DiffLines:

* OneOfTheseThingsIsNotLikeTheOthers: He's the only country in the world to have Ibadi Islam as his state religion. This means he's usually not involved in any conflicts between Sunnis and Shias, which helps him stay neutral.


* ExpressiveShirt: Similar to Brazil, the ''shahada'' on his flag is sometimes altered in certain comics though this will only be [[BilingualBonus noticeable to Arabic speakers]].



* MaskOfSanity: Despite being TheStoic, he has a [[https://i.redd.it/8lxh32izgbu11.png very unhinged side]]: he uses the ancient Assyrian methods to silence his critics. [[spoiler:Amusingly he botches it pretty badly by following it to the letter]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheBully: Can act like this towards his neighbors, specially to [[https://external-preview.redd.it/Jw-YavYm_rOAgOsK6RqWMYsKuv-k3vkIQXqOgxFLne4.png?auto=webp&s=cf644d2d386ed0e1f950823c42d79e85cecb0d2d Qatar]]...


Added DiffLines:

* ButtMonkey: Is portrayed as this [[https://external-preview.redd.it/XDCgCQNDIQutMTHLn1mMBiE8gX6cxxc0XOKY1Dc5G3U.png?auto=webp&s=afec2f04fabfb89485708e9fd9738c6956d81915 because of his ongoing civil war]]. It doesn't help he is also depicted as Saudi Arabia's punching bag.

Added DiffLines:

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Downplayed. He remembers the American phase of the Vietnam War, but it doesn't seem to be nearly as important to him as it is to America. After all he fought France before than and China after.


* AssShove: May be subject to this when sitting on Singapore.

* BecauseYouAreNiceToMe: Just the mere act of recognizing his genocide will earn you his friendship, even if you are a kebab like Lebanon or Syria.

Added DiffLines:

* AdiposeRex: Sometimes he is depicted as fat like America because of his wealth and the fact he is an absolute monarchy.

Added DiffLines:

* ChristmasEpisode: He is often associated with [[https://imgur.com/PpWqFzk Christmas]] because of the tree on his flag and having a large Christian population. He gets targeted by kebabs very often because of this.
