Main article: Uniform Guide: Denmark
Denmark has short, wild blond hair and blue eyes. He wears a long black coat with red cuffs, a red shirt and black tie, red pants, and tall brown boots, as well as a small black hat. He is the second tallest of the Nordics and is often shown carrying around a large axe in artwork.
Personality And Interests
Denmark is said to be full of youthful vigor and humor, though he is also very stubborn and doesn't listen very well to others. As a result, he is known to be very controlling, bossy, and demanding, to the point where it is hard to get along with him.
He declares himself to be the "King of Northern Europe", and speaks in an Ibaraki dialect. He is also a heavy drinker.
Main article: Finland
Finland also lived with Denmark, but made the decision to flee with Sweden, due to having grown tired of being surrounded by stronger nations and wanting to be free.
Denmark sees Iceland as a younger brother. Along with Norway, he pesters him to call him Onii-chan (big brother).
Main article: Norway
Norway is a childhood friend of Denmark's, who he feels rather close to and strongly about, believing that Norway sees him the same way as a "best friend." However, he is oblivious to Norway's bluntness and subtle ways of teasing and insulting him.
Main article: Sweden
Sweden lived with him for a long period of time, but after being unable to stand his behavior and lifestyle, finally snapped and rebelled, leaving Denmark behind and running away with Finland.

In The Anime
Denmark is shown in a brief shot (non-speaking) in Episode 69 during Finland's explanation of why he is traveling through the woods with Sweden - the two of them having escaped from under Denmark's rule. Later in the explanation, a small version of Denmark is seen as part of a map alongside Finland, Sweden, Poland, Lithuania, and Russia.
He makes his speaking debut in Episode 79, which adapts To Create Better Products in Northern Europe. In the episode he is shown selling dolls made by Finland and Sweden, with Norway showing up and remarking that Denmark is being loud and annoying. However, Denmark doesn't seem to understand that Norway is insulting him, and responds with enthusiastic cheer. He is voiced by Hiroshi Shimozaki.
- It was rumored that Denmark, along with Norway and Iceland, would appear in the anime adaptation of Hetalia, and that he would be voiced by the seiyū Tomokazu Sugita. However, this turned out to be a hoax, said to have originated from 2channel. Denmark did debut in a cameo in the first season World Series, however, while the second season marked his formal debut, voiced by Hiroshi Shimozaki.
- In a recent blog post of Himaruya's, his possible names included Andersen, Christensen, Arnesen, Simon Densen, Abel, Mikkel, Magnus, and Bertram. "Densen" is his possible surname.
- In the 6th volume of the manga, Denmark stated that he has not celebrated his birthday in 10 years.
