2P!Canada by MikeyWayluver013 2P!Canada by MikeyWayluver013
Contest entry for :iconp2hetalia:. We have to design an alternate 2P design for any of the characters...and since it's 1. Canada's birthday today, and 2. Canada is one of my favorite characters, I thought he'd be fun to re-design.

Anyway, my own headcannon for the 2Ptalia characters is that they aren't necessarily that different from their 1P counterparts. They're more like...the sides they hide deep inside themselves, the sides that they don't want the rest of the world to see. The stronger their insecurities, the more they show in their other selves.

For example, for America, I imagine that he hides his...meaner personality traits. I imagine him as money hungry, a wish to own the whole world, and incredibly distrustful of everyone and everything.

As for my headcannon for Canada, he is shown to be stronger than he looks, and I believe he hides a deep resentment of everyone except for France, who has been shown to always (at least from what I've seen) know who Canada is. 2P!Canada, I'd imagine, really looks up to France, (both 2Player and the normal France) and grew a beard to look a little more like him.

I also think that 2P!Canada would much more aggressive, but still reserved. He'd have a much shorter temper, and doesn't take shit from anyone. However, unlike 2P!America, he'd be much sneakier with his revenge. He uses his skates and hockey stick as weapons, but is polite enough to take off the blades when inside.

The other countries, I'd imagine, try harder to remember him, but (in my headcannon again) he is cursed to always be invisible...so the other countries have learned what happens when they completely ignore 2P!Canada.

As for why he's hockey player...well, while Mattie doesn't hide his love for hockey, I think he prefers to keep just how...scary he can get when interrupted from watching his games. Plus, hockey players are kinda...more known to be aggressive and kinda scary (at least on the ice), so I think 2P!Canada wears the uniform as both to show his love for the sport, but also as a bit of a warning to not mess with him.

Uhm...let's see what else...oh! And Kumajiro would be a black bear. Just 'cause. Heh heh...

This is a really neat design, also I like your headcannon about the 2P! characters~ I've never liked looking at 2P!Hetalia characters like Dark!Hetalia characters, too bloody and gross... so I've always imagined that the 2P!s have different personalities but don't have much of a connection to their 1P! counterparts.

Thanks!

Hmm...a lot of people tend to mix up snapped!Hetalia characters and 2P! characters. For me, while 2P! characters can be dark, they aren't dark for no reason. I still think they have a connection to their 1! counterparts, but more in a, wishful thinking sort of way. ^^

No problem~

I totally agree, some of the characters can be a bit violent at times, but in my eyes that doesn't make them blood-thisty savages... >.>
I've always kind of wondered if they even know about their 1P! counterparts... I mean, if you've lived in your universe your whole life, would you really even know that other universes existed?

Hmm...that is something to think about. For me, I think the 1P! countries could know about their 2! counterparts. I mean, some of the countries are shown to have magical powers, and many believe in otherworldly creatures, so I don't think it'd be too far-fetched for them to at least know of a different universe.

As for whether they actually know them personally, hmm...possibly. I kind of think that since the two worlds are connected, perhaps portals open up to the other universe, allowing both sides to interact. Of course, this is just a headcannon, so I honestly wouldn't know. ^^"" But it is something fun to consider~

It's possible, I suppose. You seem to put a lot more thought into these things than I do. c:
