Full Article: Uniform Guide: Romania

Romania has shaggy shoulder-length strawberry blond hair and pale skin, reddish-pink eyes, and is often portrayed having a pair of vampire fangs. His military uniform consists of a woolen overcoat, dark breeches, tall laced boots, and a small bowler hat with ribbons attached to it. The exact color scheme has yet to be decided, as Himaruya has stated that he had trouble deciding the color of Romania's uniform.

Personality and Interests

He loves black magic and folktales (referencing stereotypes of Romanian vampires and demons), and comes off as a very eccentric character. In reality, he is a friendly and mischievous person who is said to be very good friends with Bulgaria and often quarrels with Hungary. He has the appearance of a jokester, when he is actually a hard worker who reads the atmosphere well. He is nearly as infatuated with Roman culture as Germany; this may be why he desperately tries to prove his descendancy from Rome, to no avail.



Full Article: Bulgaria

Romania and Bulgaria are shown to be best friends who often push each other around jokingly. The two are often grouped together (along with Hungary) in the European Union, and together make an appearance in the Halloween 2013 Event


Full Article: Hungary

Hungary and Romania's relationship is described as a "cat-and-dog" relationship, in which they constantly fight. Hungary is said to name all of her dogs after famous Romanians, and dislikes being grouped with him and Bulgaria in the EU.


Full Article: Moldova

Romania is Moldova's doting older brother, and cares for him immensely as seen in the Halloween 2013 Event. However, Romania is shocked at how Moldova's carefree and childish personality is quickly replaced by a very adult-like demeanor.


Romania's first appearance in Episode 102.

In the Anime

Romania makes his official debut in Episode 102 of the anime, in which he is part of the Black Magic Club, called the Hellfire Club in the English dub. He is interviewed by the Newspaper Club, and tells them about the Black Magic Club's activities, much to England's chagrin.


  • It is implied that Romania is based on stereotypes of Vlad Draculea III, a Romanian ruler who was the inspiration for Dracula.
