[=UKball=] for his part regards him as a [[UnknownRival bothersome nuisance]].²* BerserkButton: Argentina is white!²** [=UK=] refusing to gib Malvinas/Falklands.²* CulturalPosturing: Since he became Pope he feels he can finally become more relevant than Brazil on the world stage and join the ranks of the European Nations. Yeah, good luck Argentina.²* [[ExpressiveShirt Expressive Sun]]: The sun on his flag will change expression depending on his mood. It seems that it has a mind of its own sometimes. ²* JerkAss: Is an arrogant know-it-all who often mocks his neighbours.²* NiceHat: Rarely is seen without his popehat nowadays.²* TheRival: Brazil as far as sports are concerned.²²!!Bolivia²* ButtMonkey: South America's punching bag. Nearly every joke about him is about being landlocked, specially being from Chile.²* DreamCrushingHandicap: Wants to be a naval power. Has no coastline. Tries to compensate with his half of Lake Titicaca, but it's just not the same.²* EnemyMine: Bolivia can't stand Peru, but both usually are united for their mutual hate/rivalry with Chile.²* RunningGag: Bolivia cannot into sea.²* UnknownRival: With Chile.²²!!Brazil²[[quoteright:350:]] ² [[caption-width-right:350:Hue Hue Hue]]²-->-'''HUEHUEHUEHUEHUE'''²* ArchEnemy: Since the 2014 World Cup, he regards Germany as his due to humiliating him in his own home, exceeding his own rivalry with Argentina and crossing straight into this territory.²* BerserkButton: ²** Do not call him "monkey".²** He also doesn't like when people think Spanish to be his language. ²* BreakTheCutie: Losing to Germany in the 2014 World Cup was pretty traumatising for him, yet [[GracefulLoser he manages to take it in stride]]. A handful of comics instead play the trope perfectly straight, however...²* BlackSheep: The only Lusophone country in Latin America.²* TheDutifulSon: Is this to Portugal where possible, as seen leaping to his defense [[ here]].²* ExpressiveShirt: The words "ORDEM E PROGRESSO" may be replaced by anything amusing for the situation, such as "OhCrap" and, of course, "Hue", so it pays to look closely.²* {{Foil}}: To Argentina, as they consider each other [[TheRival rivals]]. Their general portrayal and opinions towards their roots also contrast each other.²** Also to Indonesia as well. They both [[RetiredBadass used to be powerful in the past]], own the biggest amount of forests in the world, and hide a lot of problems within themselves. However, [[{{Jerkass}} the general portrayal]] [[NiceGuy of their personalities]], relationships with their neighbors and opinions of their respective parents Netherlands and Portugal [[AntagonisticOffspring couldn't be]] [[TheDutifulSon more different]]. They do [[PyroManiac share one thing in common though]].²* GenkiGuy: Is always jovial.²* GentleGiant: Powerful and a great soccer player, but a rather cheery guy whose only dialogue seems to consist of HUE.²* TheHyena: 90% of all comics involving Brazil will have variations on "HUE HUE HUE" (the Brazilian onomatopoeia for laughter) taking up at least a ''significant'' chunk of its dialogue. Sometimes it'll be the only thing Brazil says.²* InsistentTerminology: Tends to frequently refer to Uruguay as "Cisplatina" because of its previous past as a Brazilian province.²* ManOnFire: While typical for countries going a crisis to be depicted this manner, in Brazil's case it's almost quite literal to reference to the Amazon fires caused by his {{pyromaniac}}al tendencies.²* MixedAncestry: In contrast with Argentina's vehemence about being European, Brazil is quite vocally proud of his African and Amerindian heritage as well as his Portuguese roots.²* NationalAnimalStereotypes: Often compared to or asked about monkeys. Never with good intentions.²* NiceGuy: He is frequently characterized as a friendly, good-natured and laidback. Though not to the same level as Canada and the Nordic countries, Brazil can befriend even the most insular countries like Iran, China or Russia, while being friendly to the West at the same time.²* NiceHat: A carnival pork-pie hat. Although during actual Carnival, he's likelier to wear some eccentric feather crown or mask.²* NotSoDifferent: ²** Despite Brazil being what Indonesia isn't, he does share his love for burning down forests and trees as [[ seen here]]. ²** Brazil has a lot in common with [[{{Eagleland}} America]], specially now in [[ light of recent events]]. ²* PerpetualSmiler: While he doesn't have a mouth, its clear he is smiling with his eyes.²* {{Pyromaniac}}: Less sympathetic portrays show him gleefully burning down the Amazon Forest for shits and giggles, which puts him in NotSoDifferent light to his {{foil}} Indonesia.²* RetiredBadAss: The Brazilian Empire was a force to reckoned with but you wouldn't know it today.²* SoProudOfYou: Portugal's favorite filho. His [[spoiler:façade of]] success [[ keeps his father going]].²* StepfordSmiler: [[ Seen here]]. Brazil deals with so many problems such as crime, corruption, economic crisis, internet limitations, and even ISIS threats, but he puts up with a smiley facade that is [[BrokenTears just cracking underneath]].²* SuperpoweredEvilSide: As the Brazilian Military Regime.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Feijoada, a stew of beans and pork. Brazil is occasionally referred like that much like Muslim countries in general are known in the comics as "kebabs".²* VerbalTic: [=HUE=] tends to be inserted in his dialogue frequently.²²!!Chile²* IdenticalStranger: Due to flag resemblances, USA tends to confuse him with Texas, [[ as seen here]].²-->'''Chile:''' For last time, [[PoirotSpeak gringo]], I is Chile! I espeek espanish! ''I is have INDEPENDENCIA!''²-->'''USA:''' Speaks Spanish and wants independence... [[NotHelpingYourCase whatever, Texas]].²* MismatchedEyes: Sometimes Chileball has his 2 eyes as the same, in others the star of the flag becomes the eye, all DependingOnTheArtist.²* NiceHat: When going to war, he will wear a Pikelhaube or a German Stalhelm. If representing Pinochet's dictatorship, a general's hat.²* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Sometimes drawn as an ellipsoid to reflect the country's extended coastline. Occasionally Chile is depicted as a snake, or with snake-like characteristics.²* {{Pride}}: Tends to boast about his HDI every time he has a chance, or of being more relevant than his South American fellows, and has occasionally compared himself to some of the bigger countries out there.²** InferioritySuperiorityComplex: That said, he's painfully aware he's not quite there.²* TheRival: Peru. Also Bolivia, following Chile's victory in the War of the Pacific, which resulted in the annexation of Bolivia's coastline.²* RubberMan: Can actually transform into the aforementioned snake-like form at times, usually when Bolivia's eyeing his coasts again.²* TheUnintelligible: For the rest of the continent because his abuse of Chilean slangs (known as "Chilenisms") in ''every'' thing he talks.²* VerbalTic: Various Chilean slangs as "poh" and "wea" are shown in his dialogues.²²!!Colombia²* AddledAddict: The coke wars may have died down, but his habit hasn't.²* [[DrugsAreBad Cocaine Is Bad]]: It's a serious problem. Like his rival Venezuela's inability to afford toilet paper.²* GettingHighOnTheirOwnSupply: If [[Film/Scarface1983 Scarface]] exists in the Polandball universe, he should probably get to watching it.²* TheRival: Venezuela, bordering ArchEnemy at times.²* TheStoner: The other poster-boy of this trope in the ''Polandball'' universe besides Netherlands, Jamaica, and Uruguay.²²!!Guyana²* BeleagueredAssistant: Someone has to put up with Suriname's antics.²* LastOfHisKind: [[ There where once five Guyanas...]]²* SideKick: To Sheriff Suriname.²²!!Paraguay²* AxCrazy: At his worst, outdoes [[UsefulNotes/NorthKoreansWithNodongs Best Korea.]] See below. ²* BoisterousWeakling: In reference to the UsefulNotes/WarOfTheTripleAlliance, he's often portrayed as such for taking on three other nations at once. The result is ... unpleasant.²* BluntYes: When asked if he was really going to fight Argentina, Uruguay and the Empire of Brazil at the same time. [[ This was his answer.]]²* BreakTheCutie: The [[UsefulNotes/WarOfTheTripleAlliance Paraguayan War]] was a very tragic event for him, causing his downfall and losing most of his men. It took a long time for him to recover.²* ButtMonkey: South America's other example besides Bolivia. Not only, he is the only other landlocked country, but several comics focus on the War of the Triple Alliance where he was curbstomped. ²* EldritchAbomination: Briefly but memorably [[ here]].²* FriendInTheBlackMarket: To the entirety of South America, as seen [[ here]].²* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Inverted in the War of the Triple Alliance (see BluntYes). If he did, he'd have a bit more clay in the present day.²²!!Peru²* NationalAnimalStereotypes: Sometimes seen riding or commanding a [[EverythingsBetterWithLlamas llama]].²* NiceGuy: A common portrayal, although this goes out the window when...²* NiceHat: When pictured with a hat, he will wear a wool chullo.²* TheRival: ...Chile makes an appearance.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: [[ForeignQueasine Roasted dove and roasted guinea pig]], often eliciting a BigWhat from observers.²²!!Suriname, aka. SHERIFF SURINAME!²* AccidentalMisnaming: Despite sitting right next to him in South America and the fact that he himself was once named Dutch Guyana, can never get his SideKick Guyana's name right. ²* ADayInTheLimelight: Tends to only appear in either A) [[ SHERIFF SURINAME comics]] or B) in {{ShoutOut}}s to SHERIFF SURINAME comics.²* BlatantLies: ²-->''The world is an objectively better place''²--> ''thanks to Sheriff Surinaaaaaaaamme!''²** Also once claimed to have invented US Customary Units. It stands for "Use Suriname's Customary Units". ²* CatchPhrase: Suriname is '''always''' taking case. ²* CluelessDetective: He almost never solves the crimes [[DaChief China]] sends him on.²* CoolShades: America thinks they're pretty stylish. Like America, Suriname seems to be able to replace them out of nowhere. ²* CowboyCop: Likes to think of himself this way.²* TemporalParadox: Accidentally killed himself while travelling through time, but fixed it (somehow).²* UnknownRival: To [[StupidEvil North]] [[HarmlessVillain Korea]], of all countries. Suriname seems to think that he's the Nega-Suriname due to their [[PaletteSwap similar designs]]. ²²!!Uruguay²* [[ExpressiveShirt Expressive Sun]]: Like Argentina's.²%%* NiceGuy²* OnlySaneMan: Frequently gets caught up in Brazil's and Argentina's rivalry. He has to make it explicitly clear to them that he's not their clay anymore.²* TheStoner: Since he's the first country to legalize marijuana.²²!!Venezuela²* TheRival: Colombia. Sometimes borders ArchEnemy levels.²* SanitySlippage: Often experiencea this, due to the woes that happened recently in his economy.²* SirSwearsALot: If anything, the Spanish curse word ''mierda'' is his catchphrase.²* PerpetualFrowner: The placement of the stars on him gives off this appearance, thus making him look rather weird whenever he smiles [[NoMouth with his eyes]]. Compare to [[TheStoic Saudi Arabia]] and [[PerpetualSmiler Mauritania]].²** However with the recent developments in his economy, artist are starting to depict the stars as tears by adjusting the position of this eyes.²* UnknownRival: He hates the USA and blames him whenever something goes wrong, but USA pays much less attention to him than even Cuba (who is another example). ²* RichesToRags: Was doing okay as oil prices rose. Nowadays he doesn't even have rags to wipe his ass.²²[[/folder]]
