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: CHINA HAS A PANDA SHAPED BIRTHMARK ON HIS BUTT.

: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: DO NOT MAKE FICS BASED OFF OF TRAGIC EVENTS IN THAT COUNTRY, THIS INCLUDES 9/11, THE JAPANESE TSUNAMI, ETC. IT CAN BE INTERPRETED AS OFFENSIVE UNLESS YOU DO NUMEROUS AMOUNTS OF RESEARCH.

:earth: CANADA, LATVIA, ETC, DO NOT HAVE A STUTTER, HOWEVER IF YOU DO GIVE THEM A STUTTER, PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF ON IT.

: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: SPAIN HAS ACTUALLY GOTTEN ANGRY AT ROMANO NUMEROUS TIMES IN THE MANGA.

: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: SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD READ IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE KOREA SPEAK IN KOREAN.

:earth: Tips for writing Japan.

:earth: BELARUS IS NOT SOME KIND OF FREAKISH STALKER, RAPIST, ETC. NEITHER DOES SHE ALWAYS WANT TO MARRY RUSSIA.



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

:earth: I cannot stress this enough:

NOBODY IN HETALIA IS A RAPIST, PEDOPHILE, PSYCHO, ETC. DO NOT EVEN IMPLY ANY OF THIS, RAPE NOR PEDOPHILIA IS FUNNY.



: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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

Yeah but the manga is also a bit more misleading and sometimes down right worng about what happened like impying that England ruined Spain's empire or replaced him as the dominant power when he defeated the Spanish Armada (mostly caused by bad weather) when Spain defeated England's Counter Armada the very next year! And Spain's dominance in battle would still continue until the Battle of Rocroi to France...and even after that he continued to win a few more battles (apparently he retook Rocroi ten years later) but was much poorer and thrashed England in the 18th century in Battle of Cartagena de Indias (the REAL reason why England had to pull out of the War of Austrian Succession) So...Himuraya shouldn't call Spain "useless" in any sense of the word. And the anime shows Spain in a much better light.

Seriously, it annoys me to no end when people write in accents. Like, I check out a fic, and it seems to be good so far- but then the accents RUIN it. How can people take your fic seriously if you write it that way?! It's one thing if you're writing parody or something, but christ.

And I know this is an annoying thing to ask, especially since it's irrelevant, but how do you put images that aren't from dA into your journal (like the ones above)? I can't find any tutorials on that and this is the only journal I've seen that has it.

Thank you so much for writing this! I really appreciate this! I can definitely write a good enough fanfiction if I read this. I guess this really wouldn't count on your list, but I feel like it could help someone out.

Putting OCs into your fanfics is fine. My Hetalia fanfic has an OC in it actually. But please, please, please, don't make it into a huge Mary Sue (because most of them time the OCs are women) that has all the countries fighting for her, even Sweden (Who is stated by Himaruya to by gay for FINLAND, and is canon). Make them have flaws and weaknesses, and quirks. No one is that perfect, and can have all the men go after her like she's a god. An example of that would be "Kidnapped By Sexy Men".

And if you are going to pair an OC with a character (which I don't have a problem) at least make the relationship between them seem realistic. Make them argue, and disagree. Make them go on a few dates, and have some awkward moments. Of you could even make them date other people. In short, don't make them fall in love and then date each other in the first chapter.

But thanks again for putting this up! I'm guilty of writing accents in it. Sorry!

Can you guys add the whole "vital regions" thing NOT being coined by Prussia but actually by Austria? It gets annoying in fanfictions.

And another thing that not many people know: Molossia is actually a really calm person. [link] [link] he just explodes when people enter his land.

I have a question/theory here. You said that no one in Hetalia is a pedophile (which IS true), but over here: [link] it says that Netherlands is a lolicon :| It doesn't say that in the wiki: [link] but that is the same place (the first link) where Sweden was "confirmed" to be gay. And it also says that (in the wiki, Netherlands' archive) that it is unsure that if Himaruya kept these characteristics. Does that mean it is possible that Sweden isn't gay or that Netherlands is a lolicon?:? I hope you guys reply to me. I makes my head so confused.

:iconcall-past-rain:
Call-Past-Rain Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Personally, I hate the "Netherlands is a lolicon" thing, it's really offensive to me. It's referencing the age of consent for sex in Netherlands, which is really young.

And it is possible, but for all we know it could have been impossible for the wiki to find a post/image/etc which states that Sweden is a homosexual and that Netherlands is a lolicon, they could have been posted on Himaruya's old blog, or..

I will research it later on.
