Just bringing this up since someone mentioned it on my formspring, but in Germany's personality description it says, "Even though it is shown that he is twenty years old in human age, his demeanor resembles that of a much older man." Someone took that to mean that Germany acts like an old man (this was this discussion: one, two, three). I personally don't think he acts like an older man, he's just too serious (which is what his profiles seem to say). I was wondering if we could reword that so it's a bit less confusing. --JammerLea (talk) 13:35, 21 November 2012 (CST)
. . .I never noticed how badly worded that was. Yeah, none of his profiles ever say anything like that--I guess however wrote it just thought of the behavior of a 20-year-old man as being much different? He definitely doesn't act like an old man, that's for sure. I'll just take it out all together(and if anyone has a better way of rewording it or remembers some canon that I don't that says that, please feel free to do something about it.)

Shouldn't that be his last name? Prussia and he are brothers correct? 188.8.131.52 21:44, January 28, 2010 (UTC)
- One would assume, but hey, America and Canada have different last names. Russia and Belarus have different last names. There was no official word if they were the same or not, so we're not going to assume.

I remember seeing a manga created by Himurayu and Italia saw Germany's manhood (if you know what I mean) and said they looked different, i.e he said that the head and foreskin looked different (one would assume, at least). Does that mean one of them is circumsized? GerItaFangirl 04:06, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
Probably. The early translations of strips aren't all that great, but the footnote refers to Italy being #2 in cases of phimosis, what with the foreskin and all. It's possible that Germany's..."cut" while Italy's not. Or just isn't cursed with that much suck. Ceras SanMarina 04:13, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
I've been a little hesitant to write this, but...well, I lived in Germany for three years, and I'm male, and I had the opportunity to use restrooms over there, ones without privacy screens, and...let's just say that Ludwig is, in all likelihood, intact. In fact, we could probably say with good certainty that all male nations, with the exceptions of male Muslim nations and male!Israel, have foreskins. Yeah, that includes America. Italy probably has excessive overhang while Ludwig...you know, I'm starting to feel really uncomfortable mentioning this stuff. The Spie 16:23, April 29, 2010 (UTC)
Suddenly this whole tangent reminded of the more sexual headcanons on the Livejournal community, including the disturbing idea of the female nations being unable to be pregnant yet still bearing the "monthly curse". Which is definitely one of the creepier/bizarre ones I've seen pop up, yet there are ones that would eclipse that. Ceras SanMarina 17:45, April 29, 2010 (UTC)
"As the human names and most references to them were later discarded, it appears that this is moot." This question does not really pertain to Ludwig, but since it's on his article I'll ask it on his article.
Since when, were the human names discarded? I've realised that Himaruya has not made any references to them, but at some point in the Hetalia, uh, chronology? Ahh, did he actually say anything on the names being discarded?
I'm just wondering... Keso-Kun 22:41, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
The name list vanished when he removed his '07 update pages from Kitayume, and the updates to it vanished when his first Bamboo blog (on Yahoo) shut down and he moved to FC2. He's only made one more reference to them on the new blog, and it was an early post stating how you could spell China's name two different ways in romaji. He hasn't officially said anything about the names, but as it's been so long and since they never really got much use (besides the brief mentions in the April Fools '08 event and that one strip with America as "Alfred"), fandom's general consensus is that they were one of the things that he stopped work on and forgot/abandoned.

I've really been wondering about this for a while...Why doesn't Ludwig have a last name but Gilbert (His BROTHER) have one????? Its really odd I mean shouldn't they both have the same last name....?
Guess you can thank Germany? = HRE? for that one. It keeps the, uh..."mystery". :D
(At least, in my head!cannon, this is the reason.)
As for not having the same last name...
Look at America and Canada: Alfred F. Jones and Matthew Williams. Heck, some people think of them as twins, and even then... --Tiamatwizard 20:03, June 3, 2010 (UTC)
Is there something I'm missing, or does Ludwig not have a specified birthday? Would that be because of the whole Germany = HRE theory? I was just curious, as I couldn't find it anywhere on the page and I was curious as to if one had been given in the first place. Thanks! --LinleytheBestMan 13:10, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
- I don't think a birthday was ever given to him and there have been a few nations that didn't get birthdays (ex. Denmark. I think Norway's birthday might be fanon but someone will need to clarify this). It's unknown why he wasn't given one. I guess Himaruya just didn't feel like giving him one.

Does anyone have the chibi picture that used be used on this page? I can't seem to get the page to pop up on Google Cache so I can't grab it and reupload it here. Icelilly 05:43, 17 December 2011 (EST)
I put in the original Japanese kanji quote from Himaruya's blog where Himaruya felt comfortable with Germany's b-day being October 3, 1990, the date of German reunification. (I did provide a rough translation from http://translation.babylon.com/japanese/to-english/ because I can speak/read/write/understand barely any amount of Japanese. --Buspirtraz (talk) 03:15, 10 December 2012 (CST)
