For some reason, everyone likes America. I guess he’s a fan favourite. I thought I would update some info on him.
🍔His ahoge represents Nantucket.
🍔 He is able to stop a car with the heel of his foot.
🍔He is afraid of ghosts, weighing scales, and Marmite.
🍔America has at least 238 weaknesses, one of those being Dora The Explorer.
🍔In some fanart, he is portrayed with a rabbit, as “U.S.A.” can also be “usa” (a shortening of the word “usagi”), which means “bunny” in Japanese. The child version of America was also shown to have a bunny following him, when he first met the older nations.
🍔According to Himaruya, America’s personality was based off of his teacher’s. The same teacher is said to have a strong disinterest in world geography. Meanwhile, America’s appearance is based off of that of a Canadian that Himaruya met when he went to America.
🍔America was originally intended to be smarter and more cheeky, but evolved into a “Go for it!” type of character.
