Egypt (エジプト, Ejiputo) is a minor character in the series Hetalia: Axis Powers. In 2008, Himaruya gave human names to some of the characters and he received the name Gupta Muhammad Hassan (グプタ・モハメッド・ハッサン, Guputa Mohameddo Hassan; Arabic: غوبتا محمد حسن)



Egypt character card image (2010)

Egypt has light brown skin and wears a khaki uniform. His head is covered with a white keffiyeh. In some artwork, he is depicted with an Anubis-like creature and in one sketch, appears to know magic.

A blog sketch by Hidekaz Himaruya showed him to have short, dark hair when he is not wearing his keffiyeh. His eyes have been shown as a golden brown in his original character profile, however, the newest profile revealed them to be a rather dull forest green. When not in uniform, he is shown to dress in white robes.

Personality And Interests

He is a quiet, mysterious young man who seems stubborn, but is actually friendly and family-minded. His mother, Ancient Egypt, knew Rome.

He first appeared in the original webcomic when Italy attempted to invade his land and pick a fight with him, though the plan was foiled when Egypt beat him up with a stick. Egypt later made a cameo during France's Christmas escapades, and barely spoke, except for asking France if he wanted to buy some pots.

In The Anime


Egypt in Episode 27.

Egypt made a brief cameo in Episode 27, when Italy tried to invade his desert. In the anime adaptation, his eyes are a deep brown and his skin is very light.

A young Egypt also appeared in episode 110, with Turkey and a young Greece.


Muhammad and Hassan are both common Arabic names; however, Gupta is actually an Indian surname as well as the name of an Indian empire (The Gupta Empire). Interestingly, there is no true 'p' sound in Arabic.


  • His birthday corresponds with the date that Egypt gained independence from the United Kingdom, on February 28, 1922.
  • In one of Himaruya's recent profile drawings, Egypt is seen having a small earing on his left ear.
