The Empire Formerly Known As Britain

Canada - Matthew Williams


Excuse me! I'm sorry for my lateness! A terrible accident happened... When I woke up this morning, it was already past noon!

99% of people go through their lives without even knowing about my existence! Only having your name known is above this!

  • Annoying Younger Sibling: An adopted one of sorts towards England and France. But mostly England.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In a few chibi sketches where she wears an outfit reminiscent of pirates.
  • Big Eater: Implied. In the 2010 Christmas Bloodbath, she was willing to eat Finland's cooking, and even asked for him to send her food in exchange for a photo.
  • Cool Sword: She gets one in her 2011 Halloween costume and a few sketches.
  • The Ditz: She has a few moments. So far, she seems to be the spaciest of all the female characters, especially in the Christmas events, where she has texted Finland just to ask how he would describe ants being all over the place and tries to play in the snow as if it were sand.

Seychelles: Ah, can I eat the fish? It's a fresh fish. [...] Or would a flying fish be better? Is it?

  • Eyes of Gold: In manga illustrations.
  • Fan Nickname: The fandom hasn't really settled on a human name for her the way it has for Taiwan or Netherlands, but "Leonie", "Michelle" and "Angelique" are the most common human names for her in fanworks.
  • Foot Focus: Illustrations show her as either wearing sandals or going barefoot.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Hinted at in her character song.

The tuna, the shrimps, the dolphins and the sea gulls,
when we hold their hands, they all become our friends.

  • Hair Decorations: Her red ribbons.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Somehow manages to fall asleep in the middle of her own character song.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Genki Girl
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Gossipy Hens: Seems to have shades of this in volume four when she has a lot of trouble keeping it to herself that a certain royal couple would be spending their honeymoon at her place.
  • Island Mouse: In "Gakuen Hetalia".
  • Joshikousei: She's the star of Gakuen Hetalia, as already mentioned.
  • New Transfer Student: In the Gakuen Hetalia game, France convinces her to join the World Academy. When she draws her national crest on the chalkboard, the other members of her Africa Class laugh so hard at how cheesy it is they need to be taken to the school infirmary.
  • Nubile Savage
  • Only Sane Man: Averted. In Gakuen Hetalia, Seychelles attempts to put a curse on England, only to have him reveal himself as a lover of black magic as he starts begging for her to teach him. This causes Seychelles to think on how strange everyone in World Academy W is, not realizing that she is in fact just as weird as everyone else.
  • Plucky Girl: As attested by the quote mentioned above.
  • The Prankster: In the 2011 Bloodbath, she admits to prank calling England. However, she doesn't seem to actually be very good at it.

Seychelles: I'll say my name and everything straight up when I prank call England. I'll pretend to talk about the TV instruction manual with him.

  • Sassy Black Woman: The more positive side of this trope. She occasionally says snarky things about her (at the time) boss England as well, and is said to have dumped France in Christmas. Look below as well.
  • Shorttank: Seems to be getting this treatment in a few sketches as of late.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Monaco's girly girl in the Hetaween event.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Fish.
  • Tsundere: In Gakuen Hetalia, she's a Type B that goes from demure and polite to screaming or swearing as soon as England or France push her too far, either by being bossy (England) or by groping her (France).
    • In the original Gakuen Hetalia script, one of the "bad endings" (the one where she joins the Axis) drives it very straight to the point, as it finished with Seychelles screaming and swearing that she'll kill England the next time they meet.
    • To England (After he clamps a dog collar on her and declares her his colony): LIKE HELL I WILL YOU EYEBROW BASTAAARD!
  • What Could Have Been: According to Word of God, she was based off of an old character who was meant to represent Nagasaki.
    • As well, an initial design shows Seychelles with one very bushy eyebrow and one normal one. This sketch also has her trademark ribbons missing.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Snow?: She seems to hate the cold in the 2011 Bloodbath, nearly passing out because of it. Justified because of her Real Life climate.


Check it out, this sheep looks extremely hot, huh?

Ah, no… I was playing soccer with the kids and the ball hit Mr. Mulema’s house.

New Zealand

We got into a huge blood feud about who was the most sheep-like so we wanted to ask you, Big bro!

Is New Zealand-san a man or a woman?
New Zealand: Which do you think I am?

New Zealand: My indirect wrinkles seem to increase if I'm in Australia too long.

Spain: What is this? Is just like a Bollywood movie.


  • Idiot Hair: Appears to have two in the same style as New Zealand; however, since they were dressed as a sheep in their only appearance, it may have been part of the costume.
  • The Faceless: For the moment; in their only appearance they were seen from the back.
