Known as Nippon or Nihon, dubbed as Japan.
In Hetalia, Japan is apart of the Axis powers, and the only asian power to join.
Japan is the younger brother of China, to whom he has made war with more on than one occasion. He spent in isolation from the rest of the world for two hundred years, which was broken by America. They were rocky with their first meeting, and eventually warmed up to one another.
2P! Japan was originally designed by Hidekaz Himaruya for "Another Color". His appearance is official, though his personality is from the fandom. Some at times modify his appearance to be similar to 2P! Nyotalia Japan.His human name tends to be Honda Koheku or in some cases Kuro Honda.
2P! Japan is physically similar to his counter part, with the differences being red eyes and a scowl rather than a lack of expression.
He wears the black version of the Japanese Imperial Navy Uniform, along with a purple cape and white gloves. He is seen carrying a katana, often used with his right hand as apposed to his counterpart's left.
When not wearing his uniform you'll see he has plenty of scars and tattoos all over his body.
2P! Japan retains his counterpart's politeness, though in a matter of honor rather than real respect. He does not speak unless spoken to, and even then in short and to the point sentences. He does not get flustered, does not worry, and keeps his own opinions to himself. He is very honorable, to the point of punishing those considered dishonorable. But he is ruthless in his exploits.
Although this is the case, many think that he is actually a very open pervert who also swears a lot. No one has reached a true agreement about this, it's just a preference.
Unlike his counterpart, 2P! Japan entertains himself with the mastery of martial arts, training, and various sword forms. He does this along side with liking mangas, animes or games, but he is also known to watch a hentai every now and then. He's an otaku at heart, 1p or 2p.
Common 2P! TraitsEdit
It is common for 2P!s to be portrayed as murderous, sociopathic and possibly insane. To most, they are a darker version of the original Nations. However, because the Original Nations can be portrayed the same way by the fandom, how much hold this has depends on the person making the story.
More often than not, 2P! Japan appears to the 1P! Nations the most out of all 2P!s and is often the reflection of the actions done during WW2 by 1P! Japan. These include the invasion of China (with the resulting war crimes) and the attack on Pearl Harbor.
