The pairing is often referred to as RusAme, a combination of the two nation's names (Russia and America). Also known as the Cold War Pairing and, more recently, Waiting for Spring.
World War II
In one of the first meetings of the Allied Forces, America tells everyone that their roles in the upcoming battles are to be his support. When Russia asks what America himself will be doing, America replies, "Good question, Russia! I'll be the hero, of course!"
Once, America's boss ordered him to call up Russia and tell him to make 25 cm (9 in.). condoms in order to destroy the Russian will to fight (even though they're on the same side). Russia reluctantly agrees, expressing that they will be difficult to make. When the package arrives to America, Russia attached a note on the package saying, "I hope it fits," with it being labelled "extra-small".
In a strip where an economic crisis hit Lithuania's house, Lithuania goes to work at America's house as a for money. Russia visits America to check on Lithuania, warning America to treat Lithuania well. In an ominous voice he adds, "He is my ex, after all".
During one of America's birthday parties, Russia gives America extra-small condoms as a joke (a reference to when America had tried to destroy the Russian will to fight during WWII), as well as a ticket to Siberia with no ticket returning home. America responds that he'll make sure to blow his nose with it if he has a cold. Russia laughs humorlessly, a tense and scary aura emanating from the both of them.
When Estonia's blog is hacked, Estonia immediately suspects Russia, since a cute picture of Russia, along with pro-Russian graphics, had been placed all over. America offers to help Estonia catch the real culprit, but it turns out to be an Estonian citizen, instead.
Himaruya has drawn multiple strips concerning the relationship between Mochi!America and Mochi!Russia.
The Cold War
The Cold War is a period of great tension between the countries of Russia, then known as the U.S.S.R. (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or Soviet Union) and America; it lasted over 46 years until the U.S.S.R. finally dissolved. This period of time is most used by fans because of the anti-Communism movements in America (communism was the social structure of the Soviet Union at the time.)
