I've been browsing fanfics on dA here lately, and I gotta say, some of them are just so out of character it's not even funny. So, I'll be making a nice little list here of things that are canon and tips on what to do when making a fanfic.

More things may be added later on! If you want to know more, I suggest this wonderful blog: hetaliafanficpetpeeves.tumblr.…

:earth: Do not butcher a language, this means using things like "Fratello", "Bruder", "Mon cheri", etc. DO NOT USE THOSE UNLESS THE CHARACTER IS TALKING TO ANOTHER CHARACTER WHOM SPEAKS THAT LANGUAGE FLUENTLY.

:earth: Do not make a character call their sibling only by brother, sister, etc. Saying those in different languages are not an exception! It's more likely for siblings to call each other by their names, as I call my big sister Crystal. An exception for using brother/sister/etc is when the character is talking to someone whom does not know their sibling or doesn't talk to them very often.

:earth: Belarus is a good acrobat and can see ghosts, as confirmed by Hetalia WikiNet.

:earth: Germany and Prussia are both EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN IT COMES TO SEXUAL CONTACT, ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS, AND PLATONIC RELATIONSHIPS. For that point, none of them are a beautiful German sexgod, sorry to burst your bubble!

(I cannot bother to find any strips of Prussia, however, here are some hilarious strips of Germany.)

:earth: Prussia is very awkward and even anti-social, for christ sakes, he even has his own diary and runs a blog! So do not make him someone whom is always like "I AM AWESOME, AND YOU ARE NOT!", or make him extremely infatuated with sex.

:earth: ENGLAND DOES NOT HATE ANY KIND OF FOOD FROM THE USA. He was actually confirmed to love McDonalds!

:earth: America is very insecure for having no history of his own before he became a colony.

:earth: Canada is a very good tactician!

:earth: England has a tattoo of an electric guitar somewhere on his body, I like to think that it's on his back.


:earth: France tends to be very grumpy when awoken, and he also may be a sleepwalker.

:earth: Russia's metal pipe is actually kinda like Mary Poppin's bag, he can put things in it! The majority of time it is food, however.

:earth: China loves online gaming!

:earth: Germany loves Maid Cafes, as quoted in his diary, he loves the uniforms they wear.

:earth: France also said once in the comic that Germany tends to run around naked more than Italy does.

:earth: Italy suffers from a condition called Phimosis, so I'd suggest doing some research on that before writing a smut fic with him. (WARNING, THAT ARTICLE DOES INDEED HAVE PENIS IN IT.)

:earth: Japan really, really hates cockroaches, so much that sometimes he'll even cry over them.

:earth: Prussia hates the word 'mark' for whatever reason, though, I have a feeling it is because of Marxism, which is known for being in Russia, and Prussia does indeed hate Russia.

:earth: Austria apparently spent some time in a wheelchair, as said in a character note.

:earth: The flowers that Hungary wears in her hair represent Lake Balton.

:earth: Switzerland was once hired by the Vatican as a mercenary. It seems to be his dream job.

:earth: THE ITALY BROTHERS WOULD NOT LIVE TOGETHER. hetaliafanficpetpeeves.tumblr.…



:earth: Now here's something that pisses me off to no end, and it doesn't just go for fic writers, this goes for RPers as well: DO NOT TYPE OUT ACCENTS, EVER. DO NOT TYPE RIKE ZHIS, ETC. IT'S PLAIN ANNOYING, SOMETIMES HARD TO READ, AND EVEN OFFENSIVE SOMETIMES.

:earth: Fem!Italy is in no way like normal Italy. She is more hotheaded and strong. Here are some examples.

Also, taken from the Hetawiki:

:earth: Please, educate yourself on gay sex before writing it.

:earth: Romano is not always angry, in the manga he can be pretty calm. He can call Spain a shithead, asshole or whatever he's insulted him with, but sometimes he's actually chill with Spain.


:earth: Himaruya has confirmed that Spain and Finland have a few mental "cracks", and could possibly be even worse than Russia.

:earth: Here's a nice website for simple everyday foreign phrases.

:earth: Spain would actually a very strict guardian, Austria would be more carefree.

:earth: DO NOT USE THINGS LIKE DOITSU, IGGY, ONII-CHAN, 'DA', ETC IN YOUR FIC. This also goes for excessive uses of aru, da ze, ve, etc.


:earth: Tips for writing Japan.


:earth: France confirmed that HRE died in the manga.

:earth: I cannot stress this enough:


:earth: Germany has three dogs, and their names are Blackie, Berlitz, and Aster.

:earth: Apparently, Japan sees the world as a RPG, as shown in a strip.

:earth: Japan's blood type would be A, according to Himaruya.

:earth: As stated by Himaruya, England's eyebrows are actually trimmed, but they do not appear that way. He also said that Ireland has thick brows as well, but with a "different feel" to them.

:earth: France is a member of the Academy Gourmet Food Club along with Turkey and China.

:earth: After a heart pops out of Russia's chest, he claims it as his own, saying "it just pops out of me sometimes". Some fans see it as possibly symbolic of the heartbreak he's suffered in his time, or a representation of just how mentally damaged he is. (taken from the Hetalia WikiNet)

:earth: China has a scar on his back from when Japan attacked him.

:earth: A post put up by Himaruya not long ago says that Australia's human name could be Ralph, Christian, Kyle, and/or Jett.

:earth: Austria seems to be on bad levels with Australia, as he finds it frustrating that their nations names are similar in many languages.

:earth: In a character note, it says that Austria only wears glasses not because he has bad eyesight, but because he thinks he would look plain without them.

:earth: Belgium's possible human names could be Laura, Emma, Anri, and Manon, as said in a post by Himaruya.

:earth: Denmark's possible human names could be Andersen, Christensen, Arnesen, Simon Densen, Abel, Mikkel, Magnus, and Bertram. "Densen" is possibly his surname.

:earth: Estonia can play the piano!

:earth: Hong Kong's possible human names could be Wang Jia Long (Wong Kha Loung in Cantonese) and Li Xiao Chun (Lei Siu Chun in Cantonese). He was also given the English name Leon.

:earth: Hutt River owns a Bilby, a small marsupial native to Australia.

:earth: Iceland's possible human names could be Emil Steilsson, Sigurður, Eiríkur,"Erik" and Egill.

:earth: On his blog, Himaruya mentions that Pakistan was likely in the background somewhere during the Halloween event thinking "That bastard..." when spotting India. He goes on to say that the history between those two countries is full of great interactions. (Taken from Hetalia WikiNet)

:earth: Korea's habit of claiming things originated from him most likely comes from the taegeuk on his flag. The taegeuk refers to the ultimate reality from which all things and values originate according to oriental philosophy. (Taken from Hetalia WikiNet.)

:earth: When a fan asked how Ladonia came to receive his scar, Himaruya responded that the scar is actually paint.

:earth: During the Christmas 2011 event, he stated that his favourite Pokémon is Stunfisk.

:earth: The "desktop mascot" of Latvia reveals that he has an apparent dislike for things such as the Livonian Order, Alexander Lukashenko, the Teutonic Order, and Cossacks.

:earth: Liechtenstein's possible human names could be Erica/Erika, Sisia, Elise, and Eva. Her possible surname is Vogel.

:earth: Molossia owns a large dog whose bark is strange. The other nations are are initially unsure of what it is. (Taken from the Hetalia WikiNet)

:earth: Molossia's mobster-like appearance (his white "zoot suit", sunglasses, and slick hair) is likely a reference to the history of organized crime in the Nevadan city of Las Vegas (and to a lesser extent, Reno) and the stereotypes associated with it. Gangsters, including Bugsy Siegel and members of the Al Capone gang, ran casinos there in the early to mid 20th century. (Taken from the Hetalia WikiNet)

:earth: Netherlands is xenophobic.

:earth: Netherlands' possible human names are Tim, Govert, Abel, and Mogens.

:earth: Norway's curl represents the Fjords.

:earth: Norway's possible human names are Lukas Bondevik, Børre Thomassen, Bjørn, Kjetil, Knut, and Sigurd. Bondevik and Thomassen seem to be his potential surnames.

:earth: Sealand has a fondness for chocolate bars, and likes to browse the internet and play games as a hobby, as revealed by the "desktop mascots" from the official blog. (Taken from the Hetalia WikiNet)

:earth: According to a note by Hidekaz Himaruya, Spain was only originally going to speak in the Kansai dialect whenever he was excited or around people that were close to him. In addition, Himaruya also revealed that Spain might as well have "two faces" like Russia. He also stated in another note that while Spain treated Romano kindly, he was stern to his other colonies. Himaruya himself wondered why Spain was "historically stuck on Italy" that much, as it was stuck spending so much money to protect it and struggled to try to get it back after losing it in the War of the Spanish Succession. (Taken from Hetalia WikiNet)

:earth: Switzerland has three pet goats: Eiger, Jungfrau, and Mönch, named after Switzerland's famous mountains.

:earth: Taiwan's possible human names could be Lin Yi Ling or Xiao Mei.

:earth: Thailand has a verbal tic of saying "ana (อะนะ)".

:earth: Thailand has a pet elephant named Toto!

:earth: Ukraine's possible human names could be Irunya Chernenko, Maria, and Sofia.

:earth: Greece dislikes Albania, as said in Greece's bio and relationship chart.

:earth: Luxembourg has a small dog named Peltze.

:earth: New Zealand has a pet kiwi (the bird, not the fruit.)

:earth: New Zealand is androgynous.

:earth: Romano is actually flirtatious towards girls, and is more cold/aloof towards men.

Overall, if you want to write a Hetalia fanfic, I highly suggest you read the comic/manga and not only have watched the anime. The comic shows more quirks and such of the characters.

Something that I just think would help with posts like this, be they journals or any kind of 'advice' given that involves 'canons' about characters, links to sources are required. I feel that a few of these canons should be sourced, so that people can go back and see for themselves that something is to what the creator said.

Also, the language thing for 'Bruder' or 'Fratello' as I've seen also mentioned in the previous comment, is yes, personal prefrence. I do agree that a lot of nations do not say those words unless one is familiar with the language. For example, Germany talking about Austria about his brother Prussia, he would likely refer to him as 'Bruder' because the two both speak German. I understand where you are coming from, but to completely tell someone they are horrible because they do it other instances is very rude of you. That is your opinion and you can give advice yes, but to have stated it the way you did, is not very considerate.

Another thing I would like to mentioned is the bit about writing out accents. Yes, I do understand where you are coming from and it makes sense. But, the way you have worded it is a tad offensive. I rp and I type out the accent for a character. Now, before you attack for me being 'not sane', let me first tell you WHY I do this. I am not the nationality of this character I have, I actually have many OCs who are all of different nationalities, and I type accents out to help me keep in character. It makes it easier for me to be that character so that I can protray them as best I can, which involves me typing out their accent. If I could voice them I would, accent and all, but sadly they are voices I cannot do as they are not within my voice range.

So, I would like to state, this is opinion, I have NO trouble AT ALL with people typing accents. And that's my opinion, you should not force your opinion on others because you think it's the 'right' way. There is nothing wrong with typing out accents. I am friends with others from different countires, one who even pointed out my accent on one character. I explained to her that it was so I could stay in character and she understood. Now, here is the best bit, she began helping me with both my accent AND wording as well as certain words in that language. It's not offensive! It's only offensive if people take it that way, and that is not something you can control for that is their thoughts.

That's all I felt I should address. It's to improve the journal so that it can be helpful to everyone.

Excuse me, even though the facts might be useful, but some of it are mostly just personal opinion

You shouldn't write "bruder" "fratello" etc if they're not speaking the language? That's personal opinion. I've met an Italian person and heck he used half english and half italian (as he was expecting me to understand him)

And Germany and Prussia are uncomfortable with social contacts? I think it's fine if people write them like they're sexgods or something. Fanfiction is just a fiction.

As long as it has a good plot, and good characteristics and any other criteria for good fanfictions all of these things you've written don't really put up (beside the simple facts, those can be helpful for others)

Seriously, your username is pretty ironic. In Japan they rarely have this kind of feud, writing down what people should or should not do in hetalia fandom. They couldnt care less about someone disliking a female character in aph or even shipping different ships or writing fanfictions. And they're actually pretty cool with people liking mangas and animes (despite the obsessed ones, those are called otaku and well, disliked by the community)

They're the sane one. I'm sorry to say this but by writing this deviation and calling yourself "sane" is like... Proving yourself to be a well... Weaboo.

I just think people care too much for lables. I just hope that this deviations will be fixed, because in the future a lot of people will read this. And it may or may not affect them.

<(_ _)> I apology if I offend any of you guys, but it kinda matters, because if we want to keep this fandom in peace we should respect each other's opinion without trying to change them (unless it became to harsh or it has a negative effect on people)

Have a good day!
I think the problem with calling your brother "Bruder"  is that it just sounds weird in German.
Calling your older brother"お兄さん" may sound natural if you are japanese and talking Japanese, but it sounds clumsily translated and unfitting if you use "großer Bruder" to address your sibling in German.
people in Germany usually just don't call their sibling "brother" or "sister" in every day languages, especially not when they canon-wise have a lot of siblings, like Ludwig.
It would come to confusions and it would be also useless, because they already know they're his siblings, he doesn't need to remind them of that.
In German, regardless if they're older or younger, you usually call your sibling either their first name or by a nickname.
there are very rare cases, when you say stuff like "Du bist mein/e Bruder/Schwester!" and usually it is either because it is a new information or because you want to remind/emphasise it for  a specific reason ("You can't steal my steak! You're my brother! Brothers don't steal their brother's steak!" ).

You can refer to your sibling as "mein Bruder" or "meine Schwester", if you're talking about them with a third person but in that case people would probably not use just a few single words in German and tell the rest in English. They'd either say the complete sentence in German or English ("Mein Bruder bezahlt mein Bier!" or "My brother will pay my beer!" not "Mein Bruder will pay mein Bier." ), because otherwise it's just weird.

it's just sad if Germany is not able to speak his own language.

ah, thank you for the information! it really clears everything up. though, despite the fanfic would bemore original nor more real (if they don't rely on stereotypes), a lot of people out there are still relying on stereotype because it's their basic knowledge, or maybe they use those reasons to depict the nationality of certain characters in their stories. a lot of people write, draw, etc just for fun. but it's nice to know the actual thing. i live in Danmark where we're learning German as our secondary language, so i'm quite aware of it too! i just don't make a big deal out of it, but i get where you going.
MathildasDoubel Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2016
We've had to learn French because I live very close to the French...I actually hated it as a child, but now I feel kind of bad that I didn't grab the oportunity to learn the language properly...I was too lazy. ^^"

I think stereotypes can be really funny...but when it comes to people writing things in your native tongue "wrong" in's like an accident. You can't look away and depending how terrible it is, you either think it looks damn funny (and can't take the story serious anymore) or it's just sad.
either way it can really destroy the mood that the author is trying to convey.
Just today I read a story about Gilbert dying and everything was supposed to be super sad and angsty, but Ludwig sported this "great" google translated German, called Prussia an "it" (i.e. neutral endings instead of masculine) and used unfittingly distanced and polite language with him...
I was snickering and snorting my way through the whole paragraph...kind of destroyed all the angstyness for me.
it was entertaining though. XD
nerdics Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
same with danish

i used to be like that kind of person, like "hey i want to learn lots of language!" but when i met danish i felt like crying- "orz i'm just very lazy.

ah i can imagine how that feels! though, most of the good fanfiction authors tries their best to avoid the stereotypes. when i write fanfiction i focus more on their humanly personalities much more (and rarely write the accents also-)

omf- okay i can imagine how that destroyed the moment it's a bit hard to write in another language (that you're amateur on), because you've no idea if it sounds original or not. but i couldn't stop smiling imagining how that scene would be for that fanfic (esp. if i can speak decent german that'd be 10/10)
MathildasDoubel Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2016
i write some of my fanfics in English, because I write for niche pairings and people that like the same couples/brotp should be able to read them.
 I make a lot of mistakes for sure and some things may sound very weird for a native speaker, because it went thorugh the filter of a person that grew up in a slightly different culture.
Because of that I'm generally pretty "forgiving" when it comes to people trying to write my native tongue...just when it's obvious that they just used google translate or that they obviously didn't even try to research about the culture they try to depict...then I think it is a bit funny/sad.
it's just something I notice. ^^"

...sometimes things can also sound very cheesy in other languages even when they sound perfectly okay in your native tongue...or the other way around.
If you translate English love songs into German it's often like that for example.
Perhaps because in contrary to the  culturally American dominated pop industry which often has pretty kitschy lyrics, German romance seems to be simpler with less big gestures.
Not that one is necessarily different than the other...
culture plays a big role I suppose.
I suppose you can say that from a Danish perspective as well.
nerdics Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
omg- yes i agree with you!

oh, i'm actually an indonesian, but i lived in danmark for 2 years now! i am still struggling with both danish and german huu- i understand that feeling where people didn't even do a little research on their writings. i look up to many wikipedia pages just because i want to write about artie with his brit stuff, just because i want to make it sound as natural as possible! but i guess that depends to each person if they care enough for the fanfictions!

if you do meet fanfictions with google translated german (which i now remember destroyed the angst moment omf) you can just reccomend them HiNative.  it's similar to translating programs, but instead of programs it's replaced by communities. i'm learning japanese over there, to make sure if sentences i'm writing sounds natural. but y'know what. that's a lot of action :XD: forget about it.

i get that cheesy translation thingy, both in bahasa and the danish language! especially bahasa, since our language uses many slangs and various words from another languages in our country (we have around 400! :'' still kinda weird that i can only speak one) but i think it's quite usual for Americans to use stereotypes. wowow- tell me more about this german romance?? :XD: i'm interested to know about the different cultures (this could also help me to write fanfictions, if someone ever commission me or request!)

yeeeeah, danish... people are actually very different from what it's depicted in APH (obviously), they're very serious and shy! but also very kind.
MathildasDoubel Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2016
research is fun. OwO
A lot of the stuff i write for hetalia is from a German point of view so it's okay if it's not 100% true...but a bit of minimum research needs to be done to not embarrass myself. XD

Slang is another problem, I'm happy when they just use the standart German right. the dialects and different languages are a bit tricky even for a German.
the regions in Germany are different from each other and the dialects reflect that.
Giving Prussia leatherhosen  or other South German traditional constumes and let him go to the Oktoberfest is for example pretty sad for the Bavarians (who don't like "prussians" that much).
Yes, eastern Germans go to the Oktoberfest, but they're not the most well-liked guests and it' certainly ot their culture.

in Germany we've got the stereotype of Danes being super relaxed and friendly and quiet. generally the stereotypes for the Scandinavian countries are pretty good. the social system and integration support is often seen as an example how it should be done for the Germans.
from my German point of view Norway and Finland seemed more of the mark than Denmark...even though mumbling would fit Denmark better than Sweden I suppose. Swedish sounds sometimes extremely articulated and with loads of melody compared to Danish.
the Danes are like blonde, sexy, laid-back, funny-talking Germans of you go by German stereotypes.
and they don't lie (the song is original named "Tränen lügen nicht"(tears don't lie) and sung by Mr. Bornholm in German with a strong Dutch accent... but this version "Dänen lügen nicht" (Danes don't lie) is more well-known today):…
The guy singing is East Frisian... Northern German, close to the Dutch border.

haha! German romance doesn't exist. XDDD
Nuh! I think it's more like... it's quieter. We're not totally free of cheesy embarrassing stuff but i think german culutre is a bit more private when it comes love. Not necessarily sex...but love is a more private matter, I suppose.
it's more showing love through action than proclaiming it.
I think compared to other countries, Germans might be a bit more private and shy in general but of course there are always exceptions.

I very much like your views on this journal. I'm not a very big part of the group, being new to it and not having been all the much told what is acceptable and not, I haven't done much of the accepting and such.

However, your view makes a lot of sense and I enjoyed reading it before going over the journal, realizing how...opiniated it is but in a rather forceful way. I will try and talk to the admin to possibly get it removed from the group for it's very pushy with certain topics, saying that this is the only way to do something. This is a fandom, there are going to be many ways to go about something, be it roleplay, cosplay and even fanficiton.

Thank you for your thoughts.

You're very welcome and your comment has made me realized that I really should take part in some of the things that go on in the group. I was never a real big part of it before but now I want to. I want to have it be an open opinion group about the fandom where people can gather and have friends who will not hassle or pester them about their views. An accepting community where everyone can talk in a mature manner.

So again, thank you for commenting, it's motivated me and given me a view to push towards with the view of this group. I just hope that my opinions/views are accepted by the admins so that we can be a more open and friendly community.

mellythejellybean Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
I think it's okay for a country to speak in it's native language with anyone. I mean, they do it all the time in the manga/anime. Especially France. It makes the characters unique and it allows the reader to indulge in foreign language and culture (BUT ONLY if the author uses the phrases correctly).

i really dont care what you say about the accent thing.putting in or not accents in a fanfic does nothing to the quality of it.what make a fanfic good is how well the story is.pruassia"i am asume! thing is what makes him funny.and to me germany is a sexy god.but all this rule stuff about the accents,certine info and the whole brother sister thing to me its just a pref.i dont call my brother by his name.i mostly call him brother.
RAPIST, PEDOPHILE, PSYCHO, ETC. agin pref. not banging just stating my oppion.da?

But don't all the countries know various different languages because the place of the world meetings changes and so its a different country with different kinds of cultures and languages? Shouldn't they all know the languages by now?
Camoline Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013
Thanks for the guidance! :) I find myself agreeing with most- no, ALL of these. Though you probably don't have the time to reply individually and I'm sorry if this is a recurring question but where's the best place I can go for Hetalia comics in English? The only other language I'm fluent in is Russian, but I get the feeling it's not as major as Spanish or Chinese in the translation area...

Also, some things that annoy me and you may want to add to your list:
Earth When communicating affection between two nations that speak German (such as Prussia and Germany) it's important to remember that there are different phrases for different meanings. There are separate phrases for saying you've missed someone, inviting them to kiss, brotherly affection, friendly affection, etc. It would be best to research the subject before writing anything.
:earth: Do not use Japanese honorifics unless Japan is using them.

Sorry if those two are already in the list..

So wait, Germany really can't be HRE canonically?

I think there should be more exceptions to nation calling their siblings 'brother, sister etc'. In countries like China, Korea and Japan, it's a common sense to call an older sibling 'older brother/sister', including those who aren't related. Otherwise, it'd be extremely rude to call by their names unless you're very, very close with each other.

I'm thinking of writing a Hetalia fanfic about my oc ColombiaxSpain. After visiting Cartagena de Indias for two weeks and asking A LOT of questions I realized Spain fought a whole lot to keep Colombia with him and protecting it as well.

Then that could definitely work. As long as the OCXCanon makes sense with historical basis, it's fine by anyone. But if it were, say ColumbiaxRussia, it would be really confusing.

I have quite a bit of historical facts that will make the story quite interesting:) Yup, that would be!
I'm having quite a bit if fun writing Spain's character! In my head canon he isn't what he seems to be...:]

Will do! Oh and thank you for your advice:)
