Top 10 Best Attack on Titan Characters

The Top Ten
1 Levi Ackerman Levi Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. He accompanies the main protagonists in the second half of season 1. His most notable feature is being "Humanity's strongest".

Levi is first of all a great soldier. I love his fighting style, and I love how cool he is. He can quickly analyze the situation and decide what needs to be done, as shown in the courtroom scene. Sure, his method was a bit violent, but it was necessary to keep Eren alive and to get the judge to allow him the chance to prove himself before further decisions were made.

Not only is he a good leader, but Levi also cares for his troops. In episode 9 when a dying soldier asked with his dying breath if he'd been useful, I thought that this moment will decide whether or not I'll love Levi or hate him, so when Levi sincerely assured him that he was and promised to take down all titans, and he even took the soldiers bloodied hand even though he hates uncleanliness, that's when he won me over.

Speaking of that, I absolutely love his obsession with cleanliness. It adds another side of his personality and make his character more real. And it is kinda hilarious.

An amazing soldier, smart, very strong and objective. Some people don't like his "harsh" personality but it's more than obvious that he cares a lot more than he lets on. He's someone the others can count on, but doesn't even try to make things look better than they really are by covering them with roses and pink hearts. He's short and small but that makes him stand out even more - I think it actually gives him the vibes of someone who can fight the whole world and win. You can even call him attractive. His past shows us how much he's gone trough to become the incredible man he now is. Not to mention that him being a clean-freak makes him some kind of.. cute?..

I love Levi's fierce character. He's so tough and such a clean freak. I like it. But just because he is very short, does not mean he can excel in many things, such as slaying titans and cleaning castles. Additionally, although Levi might not show sadness in his serious and cold face, he does show how much he appreciated dying soldiers' help.
In one scene, he saved Eren, Mikasa, and Armin from getting eaten by a titan from when Eren when to go seal the hole in Wall Rose. Now that was one of my all time favorite Levi Ackerman scenes in Season 1. It was also one of the few times he started to appear in the anime. Another scene from Season 1 of Heichou Levi is when he and Mikasa stay behind in the forest to rescue Eren from the female titan, or also known as Annie Leonhart. Levi swooped him up from Annie's mouth and started to head back to headquarters as female titan, Annie started to tear up and cry in titan form.

Some people don't like him because of his cold attitude and the way he is towards Eren but remember that he's like that to keep Eren and his cadets safe. Also, it's because of Levi that Eren went through amazing character development and has great advances. So for those that hate Levi and think he's nothing but fanservice, rethink your logic because you could not be any more wrong on how important this character is. He is not shoehorned in like some other supporting characters in anime. He's one of the main driving forces and he's been a huge asset to Eren and everyone else.

2 Mikasa Ackerman Mikasa Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. She accompanies the main protagonist Eren Jaeger. Her most notable feature is the red scarf that she wears. She is one of the most strongest characters in the Attack on Titan franchise.

Salty Mikasa fans hating on Levi just because they cannot accept the fact that Levi is so much better written than her. He cares about other soldiers and mentors the 104th Squad. He also has his own goals. Mikasa,on the other hand, only cared about Eren and dors not have her own goals. Her obsession with Eren is creepy and annoying. She would literally kill any woman for even interacting with Eren. She may be a great fighter but that does not mean she's a great character because she is not. It baffles me how anyone can say she's much better than Levi or Eren. These too develop over the series. Where is Mikasa's development? It isn't there! Honestly, she us one of the worst characters in AOT. There! I said it.

Mikasa is amazing and why are people trying to make her look bad? First it, she's too perfect and doesn't have any flaws. Then it's she's too overprotective which is a flaw-just saying. She's a normal human being and went through the trauma of seeing her parents murdered and then having to murder someone herself. After that, she got taken into the Yeager family and made a home with them until the titans attacked and she lost that too. So forgive her for being overprotective of the family she has left. And she's not overpowered. She's a prodigy, a genius. You get people like that who annoyingly just naturally talented like that which sucks for us normal people. But don't hate on her just because she's talented. And she was trained by the military and that's why she knows how to fight Titans. Also, along with all of that, she is kind, good and cares deeply for her friends. She is also strong and always helping out where she can. And with all of that, she's pretty cute and beautiful too. ...more

Mikasa is a very interesting character. She may seem like an over-protective, boring girl at first, but when you really get to analyze her, she's one of the best characters ever.

Mikasa values the lives of her comrades. Not just Eren! Remember at Trost when she ran out of gas and Armin offered his to her, however, she told him she wasn't going to leave him.

Mikasa's also a total badass, which often gets her accused of being Mary-Sue. I believe this is due to plain sexism. I love her so much because she's badass and female, proving you can be both.

Mikasa gets a lot of hate because people feel she's over-protective- but she's just showing humane flaws! Come on, give Mikasa some love :-)

Okay so a lot of people love Mikasa. But her fanbase constantly overlooks the major problems she has.
First of all, Mikasa is overpowered. Yes people, face this fact. Levi being OP is understandable because that guy has an experience of years. Mikasa enters the Academy and boom! That girl is a genius in everything. And let's face it, no one is the BEST at everything. Someone may seem perfect because they're good at a lot of things but I repeat, NO ONE is the best at EVERYTHING. But somehow, Mikasa is shown to be. She's pretty, has great hair, is tall, has a perfect figure, is a proficient and skilled fighter, is intelligent and god knows what else she possesses. If she's not a cliche anime character, I don't know who is

Second of all- fine. Eren saved her. But it's annoying how overprotective and clingy she is. She can do anything for Eren. Yandere much? I mean, seriously, if you encounter a girl like her in real life who can even kill you for Eren, wouldn't you just ...more

3 Eren Yeager Eren Yeager, spelled Eren Jaeger in the Funimation dub, is a fictional character appearing as the protagonist from the manga series Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama.

He had fire in his heart. Even though he was terrible at training in the beginning, his determination is what kept him going. He is not flawless like Mikasa, so he feels real too. He lost his mother so he has the perfect motivation to kill all the Titans. His evolution into a great soldier was epic. The fact he also survived the stomach of Santa Titan Claus is another highlight! In fact, I relate to Eren a lot. When I was in school, I used to be a little hot-headed. When someone talked to me, I talked back. When someone tried to hit me or hurt me, I stood up, no matter how big they were. I would lose at times, but that wouldn't make me quit. Seriously, Eren is actually very well written compared to Mikasa.

Eren is my dude without a shred of doubt and everyone should aspire to have the same drive, the same ambition - the passion. He's often viewed unfavorably and that's unfortunate. I mean, look, he's arguably had some of the toughest experiences and reacted differently from his peers, from which all of his rage and aggression is derived. I've always admired his inability to accept the nonsense of the world, to accept things for how they are. His strength and innate desire to protect his friends are also a plus, which is a trope at this point, but somehow he personifies these things so much better. Even his penchant for justice was rooted deeply when he was a child (the cabin scene where he slaughters kidnappers and murderers like animals to save Mikasa).

This is a character that has flaws but will push to the ends of the planet to see his dreams fulfilled (hopefully he kisses Mikasa along the way).

"If you win, you live. If you lose, you die. If you don't fight, you can't ...more

I don't get it when people complain how Eren is "annoying" or "whiny"; it just doesn't make sense. Sure, he was a little crazy-happy in the beginning, but the guy has been trapped behind some stupid walls for his whole life. Not to mention that humans are the prey. But in my opinion Eren is stronger both emotionally and physically than anyone else in AoT; just think about how much he endured: Losing his mother at such a young age, and then his father, which left him as an orphan; losing his LEG and still getting up to help Armin without hesitation or crying; then sacrificing himself... that's just NOT my description of a whiny character. Sure, he loses his temper; yeah, he's hot-headed, but he's got a purpose; he wants to survive, put mankind in its rightful place. And his unwavering courage and spirit and similar to Percy Jackson appearance/personality just makes him unforgettable. Whatever the case, Eren Yeager has my permanent respect.

Eren is honestly the best character on attack on titan. He lost his mother at such a young age and since then he promised to kill the Titans and before that he even wanted to join the scouts to protect the people he loves and to save everyone. Those weren't just words - he trained and inspired many of the people with him; remember that speech he gave which left Jean completely thinking and speechless? He is extremely brave and he trusts his friends like when he believed in Armin! Later on, he actually does join the scouts which proves how serious he really was, and we see children all impressed at the scouts and Eren smiling at them, exactly like how it was years ago! So Eren is one of the most inspiring characters I have ever seen on anime; his story is just beautiful and I don't understand why he's so underrated, at the end he joined Levi's squad and beat the femal Titan. Eren for life >3

4 Armin Arlert Armin Arlert is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. He accompanies the Protagonist Eren Jaeger. He is mostly known for his smart and quick witted mind. His notable feature is wanting to explore the world outside the walls.

I believe that the thing that makes a character truly great is the character development and Armin's got lot of that. First of all, Armin's mental abilities are no joke and it's because of him that many characters are still alive, due to his quick thinking AND quick acting. He is willing to sacrifice himself if it means success for a plan and acts as bait without hesitation. Just try to remember all the times he saved the world with his plans and you will realise that the story owes him a lot of twists. As for his development, he begins as a scared boy with no confidence in himself at all and goes on to become a fearless soldier withstrategic skills that he gradually begins to gain confidence in. To be more clear, he manages to always turn his fear into courage, which is why his brains work so well to make efficient plans. He's also the voice of reason when his friends are sunk in madness. Therefore, I believe he should be on the top of this poll, because everything he lacks in terms ...more

Armin comes off as weak, but he is my favorite character of the show. His plans almost always come through, he has a great mind! His plans have saved countless lives. His love for Eren and Mikasa is beyond compare. He's also a super cute character. What's not to love about Armin? He is persuasive and passionate when it comes to what he cares about. I know all of you are fangirling out about Levi and all, but can we take a moment to appreciate all that Armin is? He may have a soft heart and look weak, but he is a passionate and charming character that deserves much more credit. Armin doesn't have the arrogance Levi has, and though he's not always too comfident in himself, he always pulls through. Let's show our Armin appreciation!

I don't even know where to start. Armin is one of my absolute favorite characters. He's smart, talented, brave, loyal, curious, intelligent, driven, kind, and an all-around great guy. His character development throughout the story is AMAZING, and I would do anything to see him reach his goal. (Spoiler: When he gets to see the sea with Eren for the first time, I was so happy :,) *Dies) He's willing to sacrifice himself for the ones he loves and makes sure he follows through on his promises and does not take them very lightly. His mind is sharper than any sword and I love it every time he's around. He's just... I can't.

Armin in my opinion is one of the strongest characters not physically, but mentally. He is a very smart character and over the coarse of the story we find out all the things he went through physically and mentally. It is even said by Commander Erwin in the manga, "I have made a judgement based on results. He's one of our greatest weapons." He is my favorite character in any anime or manga because I can relate to him so much and he is such an incredible character.

5 Jean Kirstein

I always have such a hard time choosing my favorite SNK character. Jean holds a special place in my heart though. I love how relatable he is. He was bullied as a kid for being fat and it turned him into a complete ass who thinks he's better than everyone else. He was selfish, all he cared about was his own safety. But as the series goes on, Jean gets attached to the people around him. He makes friends and when the battle of Trost starts he realizes just how much he wants to protect the people around him. Marco dies at Trost and Jean decides to join the survey corps to protect the friends he's made and to make sure that this never happens to anyone else. Amazing how much he changes for the better, how he really is a good person that regrets who he used to be.

One of the most relatable and human-like characters in the series, heck his personality trait is pragmatic.

From how from first impressions, he seems like a arrogant person with a stick up the bum changes dramatically in a more idealistic and noble person.

He's inspiring, from how he was quite a innocent boy when he was young, chubby and bullied and turned into the guy he is during the Training Corps and into such a vulnerable character, best character arc and development in the series. He seemed like a anxious person to me.

At the beginning, he was arrogant and selfish. He only cares about his own life.He wanted to join the military police just because he wanted to live comfortably from the attacks of the titans. But, after Marco's death, everything has changed. He decides to join Survey Corps to protects his friends. I think, watching his progression throughout the series makes him more and more likable with each passing episode. His say-anything attitude comes off as a strong part of his personality.I really like how he builds his character. There's a lot of love about him in this series. He's the most relatable and human-like characters in the series. His feelings towards Mikasa are also very cute and interesting too!

He start off as an ass but over the course of the series develops into a mature, well rounded character. Despite his attitude, he cares about his teammates and even risks his life to protect them.

Unlike characters like Erwin, Eren or Mikasa, he isn't willing to risk or throw away people's lives, and in a way, his questioning and untrusting nature reflects a lot of the questions that we as fans have about the plot. Jean is sort of like our voice in the show.

6 Hange Zoë Hange Zoë is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

Hange is the heart of the scouts and I of course love her so much. She's crazy, funny, beautiful and relatable. I do like Annie, Mikasa and Historia but personally I prefer her! She is like a fearless beast. She can be crazy at times and is one of the scariest when angry! She is rarely seen without a smile and I love it. I've already seen girls like Annie, Historia and Mikasa. Hange's character is a lot more original than others! Her intelligence is almost matchable to Levi's fighting skills. I ship them personally, they look cute together! xx

When I first saw her, I fell in love. Hange's character is so lovable because she's funny at times and serious during battle. I loved that one scene when (spoilers) after Mikasa had attacked Levi and pinned him down, instead of attacking her (which Hange could have easily done) she pulled Mikasa into a hug and tried to talk instead of using violence. Which is one of the reasons Hange came to be my one of my favorite characters.

I don't know how Zoë found herself cozy in my heart, but she seems to lift the weight off my shoulders. There are these days where everything just seems to fall into darkness, but it's always Hanji pulling me out. She seems to be the bright side of everything... Wait, no, she IS the bright side of everything. Expeditions outside the safety of the walls are always fun with her around. She might be crazy, but she's also crazy funny. I don't care whether she is or is not the cutest, strongest, or the most popular character of the manga for most people because in my heart she is the best character. Even with the terror of the Titans among their story, Hanji shows the fun times you can have with a titan. She is the reverse of regular humans. Where most run away with fear, she runs towards with joy and excitement. Most of the soldiers may be putting on their serious face when going out into expeditions, but she puts on a crazy, enthusiastic face. This personality can be seen in one of the ...more

I love slightly eccentric characters, and Hange is definitely one of my all time favorites. Hange is intelligent, funny, badass and very complex. I hope Hange's backstory will be revealed at some point in the future. I also love the interactions between Hange and Levi, as they both look out for each other. Overall, Hange is a unique and entertaining character.

7 Sasha Blouse Sasha Blouse is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

Sasha, unlike most of the characters, can be fun and childish yet serious and brave, no other characters of Attack on Titan have ever portrayed a perfect balance of comedy and strength. We may have Mikasa, Levi etc. that makes us awe in amazement due to their skills and abilities, but characters such as Sasha not only had astonished us but also made us laugh with her gags, she can be a badass and a clown at the same time.

I'm surprised how positive she still is after what's basically happening.

Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan has a spectacular character casting, but if I had to pick one extremely amazing character from the cast it would have to be Sasha, or Potato Girl, for that matter. Even though there are extremely awesome characters like Levi, Eren, Mikasa, Armin, etc. Sasha is the first person that pops up into my head whenever I here 'Attack on Titan' for some reason. Maybe it's because of my fondness for strange characters... Or potatoes.

Like Hange, I loved Sasha from the very beginning. I do believe she is one of the best written characters in the show. It's funny when you see Sasha going crazy over food, but when you learn why it's actually quite sad. But backstories aside, she has incredible aim. She even took a Titan out with only a bow and arrow! Which is why Sasha made it to my top 10.

Sasha is easily the most likable character on the show. Despite her not being pushed in the audiences face like Eren or Mikasa, Sasha's bubbly personality and passion for the little things in life leave the longest impression on me by the end of each episode. Her main draw is that she's just got such an interesting and unique way of looking at things compared to all the other characters on the show; Whereas most of the other cadets are in a short-sighted circle-jerk that's only filled for hate towards Titans, Sasha thinks and says some of the most outlandish things that always throw other characters off guard. How many other AoT characters would eat a potato during a military drill!?

Besides all of these things, it's a breathe of fresh air seeing a female character that's basically the comic relief. I don't see that very often, and despite that that's most of Sasha's draw in the first few episodes she really comes out of her shell in the second half of season one and proves how ...more

8 Annie Leonhart Annie Leonhart is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

This girl is one of the best antagonists ever. She was trained relentlessly, kicked a full grown man's ass who taught her the deadly martial arts she knows now, is a badass in Female Titan form cause of her skills that she applies to Titan form. Also, even without any weapons and powers, she's a complete badass, plus scary, smart, strong, and able with her gear and swords. She also was a badass as a kid, bot hair in kicking her father's ass but for taking responsibility in the first time of destroying the wall in the manga. Very complex and unlike Mikasa who was amazing at everything the second she stepped into the academy, and with way less time, and experience then Levi who had years and every day was a struggle and fight, Annie is just an amazing character, both physically, and mentally. Plus she's a truly unique beauty, it's not the regular traditional beauty, but Annie can be a role model if she wasn't an antagonist, but that's after years of brain washing in a village that ...more

Unlike Mikasa, without her Titan powers she is still a formidable and badass opponent due to her relentless training. She is so complex and her attitude makes so much sense due to her situation. Also she's hot and pretty all at the same time. She also doesn't hesitate to beat the crud out of someone, whether it be enemy or ally to put them in their place but doesn't have the usual to go stubborn and overly hot headed temper to ground her. She's very complex and makes a lot of sense, due to her situation and dying in a span of thirteen years, Annie doesn't have much to live or look forward too, she does her duty. I don't blame Bertholdt for falling for this amazing woman, she's way better then Mikasa by a lot, but that's not saying much. In other words, she's one of the best characters of Aot, I even admire her more then Levi.

A really deep character, has a great backstory and even doe she was put on "ice", she still had that mystery around her. Plus, she's constantly being used as a reference. For example, the moment when Eren think back to the techniques she shown him. Also, compared to the other warriors, she's not as brainwashed as them. Overall, I would say that she really is one of the best character of this franchise (Anime/Manga).

She's wonderfully complex and clever. She is not just the stereotypical "strong woman" authors feel obligated to write nowadays *cough* Mikasa *cough*. She was depth and flaws, and I love how very aware she is that good and evil isn't just black and white. By far one of the more astute AOT characters; this girl is no sheep.

9 Erwin Smith Erwin Smith is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

From the first moment I saw him commanding the Survey Corps people, I knew that he had a hidden goal and it intrigued me a lot.
Although a lot of people call him selfish, he was still the best character for me in this anime.
I must admit, I was a bit disappointed about learning his hidden goal, but it seemed to make sense that there were people outside the walls.
It wasn't possible, but I wish he could have seen what lay in Grisha's basement.

Erwin is so underrated, he deserves to be number 1, he may not appear very active on the fields but he is a smooth talking cool looking type of guy. He is the reason why Levi is Levi, Erwin made Levi humanity's strongest soilder and gave Levi a reason to live after Levi lost his family. He isn't a whinny type of guy unlike eren nor strict like Levi and he is able to unleash someone's bravery in joining the Survey Corps.

I do believe Erwin deserved much better. It was very painful for me watching episode 18 in season 3 (spoilers) because I love Erwin, but I also love Armin so I didn't know who I wanted to live. That aside, Erwin is a very underrated character. I think it's obvious that the show wouldn't be where it was today without him. He's also an incredible hype machine.

He has no magic nor super-human power unlike Eren or Levi, but he is a brave, genuine, and charismatic leader that inspire all his subjects to be loyal to him to death. He is humble enough to listen and take advice even from a new member. Yet he can be shrewd to make difficult decision without worrying about his reputation.

10 Reiner Braun

(Spoilers) Not many people may share my views of Reiner, but he's my number one character, because of his loud and Obnoxious personality as a soldier, but he's also very conflicted, being more dark and indecisive as a 'Warrior'. Although he's seen as a "bad guy" I'll always see. Him as my favourite character. He's also really good because he shows strong character development. Say what you will, no one will change my mind on him. I know he's a villain, which means he'll probably die, but I pray that he won't.

He is one of the strongest titan shifters,. He excels in both human and titan form, while he is such a loyal character even though he is a villain. In the manga, it says 'Reiner is the most loyal warrior of marley'. Also, I don't get why he is weaker than Sasha and even Armin. They both aren't titan shifters and has bad physical abilities. I hope Reiner will be in the top 5 list.

First , when I see hime in season 3 , I hated him, because of Marco's death, but in the final season, when we can get konw him better, I started understand him, and I feel sorry for him. I think he has to carry a very big weight in his heart and on his shoulder, in the past and the present too .I love him, because he has conscience , and he cares about his loved ones. I think he is a good guy, but it's hard, when he get to know both of side, and hi did. I hope he doesn't want to die anymore.

Don't get why he hasn't been put down specifically. I mean he: ranked second, helped Eren with his training, took the bag from Armin etc. Just cause he is a Titan doesn't mean he should be hated! He is such a cool guy, really chilled but 'respected by his comrades'. Not to mention that both his personality + appearance are hot!

The Contenders
11 Bertolt Hoover

He just interests me. It's nice not to have an antagonist who isn't always in control, sadistic and decisive. Yeah, he's a mass murderer, but so are the Joker, Loki, Hannibal etc etc, so that doesn't take away from it. He doesn't want to murder people, he says so himself, but if he didn't do it someone else was going to regardless, so he might as well have taken the burden. Plus his guilt about instinctively running away from the dancing titan as it was eating their friend, he left behind Reiner in the process to save his own skin. Characters who are always self-assured and ready to give up their life with every opportunity can bore me. Most 10 year olds don't want to die people, and most people aren't so happy to die saving others, nothing wrong with it, it's in their biological instinct to survive. Also we just don't know all that much about Bertholdt, which made me more curious. Plus, Sweaty Giraffe memes and adorable/hilarious reibert art contribute to my love for this character.

I kind of just love everything about him as a character. How he lacks initiative despite being incredibly capable. He also feels like he's an incredibly thoughtful person without needing to be particularly smart, and it gives him this honest (and somewhat pessimistic) view of himself and the world around him. He has a great level of control in himself and is terrified of that breaking.
He does have a tendency to sometimes get a little wrapped up in his own problems and not consider the viewpoints of others on occasions, but in his defense, there are a ton of horrible things in his life.
Lastly, I love him because of the parallels between him and the Shiganshina Trio. He's often compared to just Armin since people like to fit each member of each trio neatly into the spot of the others, but I honestly love the similarities between him and Mikasa much more. Not much can be said about similarities between him and Eren, but they do both try to make the world out to be more black and ...more

His character is interesting that I'm glad he is the colossal titan. Attack on Titan Junior high really boosts my support for him. Who would have thought a guy who sweats so much due to anxiety ranked so high in military training. I am already interested in his motives far before I read the manga and finally know he is the colossal titan. And that's dope! That's better than any strongest villain in other popular mangas. Thank you for existing as a character

He is the colossal titan, so he pretty much wrecks everybody... unless if eren, mikasa, arwin, and levi think of something genius to take down his 200 ft body, he is pretty much the god of the titans. Although he lacks initiative and drive (leadership), he is really skilled with the vertical maneuvering and really athletic as a human. I think he should be ranked at least in the top 5... I am also surprised that reiner is pretty low on the list too as the armored titan, plus reiner is probably the most durable titan out there surviving multiple attacks from everywhere.

12 Marco Bott

Ah.. Marco. He deserved SO much better than what Annie, Reiner and Bertolt did to him. (Spoilers) At first I didn't really know him that well, so I didn't really care about his death. But when I learned how he actually died, it broke me. He didn't deserve that! I felt so bad that I didn't know who he was when I first started watching.

A great example of blue to someone else's red. That red being Jean. While Marco wasn't best at being a leader he would've made a great adviser had the creators just expanded on him much much more

He definitely deserves to be in the top ten. He died trying to save humanity like an honest soldier. Not to mention, he was fun loving and had a kind heart! WHY DID HE DIE! *Cries in corner*

Marco is my favorite character, he's just so nice. I feel that he made such an impact by just being kind to others.

13 Connie Springer

He's funny, nervous, impressionable, and often conflicted. He wants to do well but sometimes doubts his abilities. The Titans scare the piss out of him. He's getting along real well with Sasha, the other funny, impressionable person in the group. Basically, in a lot of ways, he's the most human character on the show, and for me, the most relatable. And did I mention he's funny?

This cutie should at least be in the top five man...I hate how most people don't care about him because of his looks, ugh...I read a fact that Connie is the kindest, most honest person in the 104th. he's very strong once you think about it! he didn't freeze up, mourn (for the longest time at least) he didn't change his identity like someone I know and will not name, he never raged or went into battle without thinking at least a bit, along with being hilarious and an amazing person, he will always be my favorite! AND ITS JUST A BUZZ CUT PEOPLE, JEEZ, WHATS WRONG WITH THAT?! I also find it adorable that he's the fastest in the 104th STAY STRONG CONNIE BBY ALSO MARRY SASHA *salutes*

Connie needs more love, he is so much better than most people think. I hate how people don't like him just because of his looks, It's A BUZZ CUT PEOPLE, IS THAT REALLY SO BAD?! what if he can be immature? aren't we all sometimes? I read a fact once, it said connie is one of the kindest most honest people in the 104th. and he's funny, downright adorable, and he's always trying to cheer people on! he's an all around great person, and great friend to the other characters. and yes I agree, I bet he is one of the only sane people on that show. think about it, he hasnt froze up, freaked out, or changed his identity like someone I know but WILL NOT name. I bet if he looked like eren or levi people would like him more...STAY STRONG CONNIE AND MARRY SASHA *salutes*

Connie is so underrated- like Armin, he doesn't have the rage or numbness that drives a lot of the characters- but he still never gives up and manages to be kind and brave at the same time. Plus, he can be really hilarious sometimes, and we need that in such a dark show.

14 Petra Ral Petra Ral is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

I really like Petra. She tried her best to get Eren used to the lifestyle in the Scouts and strongly believed that if they trusted one another, they could get through anything. Some people think she's pathetic for being killed by Annie, but they never bother to try to place themselves in her position - she was in a life-and-death situation with a threat that she didn't know hoe to handle. Petra did not have a life like Levi, who had to be tough since day one. She had a family and lived a pretty normal life before joining the military. Honestly, it makes sense that she panicked in that kind of situation.

Petra is totally Waifu material..Kind, beautiful, charming, badass, smart, can easily adapt in a world full of monstrous beings, and is acceptable in cleaning, Levi is husband material, a critical thinker, smart, brave, strong, handsome, CLEANING GOD, and can kill someone in one thought. And that someone might just be Annie Leonhart, GO DIE ANNIE!

Dude, you have no idea what you are saying. she wanted eren to not only trust her, but the whole squad, and she knew that it would be better that way because there needs to be trust between the squad members and belief. the only reason they died was that they were too hooked up on protecting eren and not making him fight, that they went into battle alone without his help. and yes, she did do something to keep the plot moving. her death was a great blow to levi and eren, and did you see the way he was crying? the only reason eren engaged the female titan was to get revenge for their deaths because it was meaningless, and so if they hadnt died, then nothing like tthat would have happened.

Petra is probably my favourite female anime character because she doesn't act like a doosh, she cares about everyone and not just her friends, she accepts people for who they are and is the most kindest anime character ever! Man did I cried when she died and they chucked her body out of the wagon. She did not deserve to die!

15 Ymir

Ymir is one of those characters that only people who struggle with being themselves can really understand. It takes guts to be true to yourself, the good parts and the bad. I think Historia and Ymir's combined story arcs have a great message on the themes of altruism vs egoism. Is it really right to sacrifice a part of yourself for other people to be happy? Sometimes it's okay to be a little selfish, it's okay to have some pride. If you're hurting yourself to keep from hurting others, it isn't worth it. I think Ymir is a great role model for those with low self esteem. As Ymir would say, "You're you, and there's nothing wrong with that." "Live your life with your head held high."

This Titan seriously is the fastest and most agile Titan both in the Mange and the Anime. So far she's only appeared in the 2-episode Levi spin-off series, where he almost kills her, no knowing that she's a Titan Shifter. The Titan's identity is Ymir, the faithful and only friend/companion of Historia/Krista(Different names in the manga and anime Historia is in manga and Krista is in anime).

I love Ymir. She reminds me of myself. If I was ever a anime character, I have many things I could compare myself to here. I know anime is anime and that in real life everyone is too busy protecting themselves, I would go help my friends too. I love how Ymir protects everyone with her Titan.

Ymir is not the best looking, but her personality wins it all. She's stuck to someone like Mikasa is to Eren, she doesn't eat too much like Sasha, the doesn't cry too much like Krista and she isn't really a traitor like Annie, well she sort of is but came back. At least she didn't try to eat someone.

16 Historia Reiss

Historia is so kind and sweet that its impossible not to like her. She's like a mother and I would be grateful to have a mother like Historia Reiss.

I loved her character development. I hated her pure-hearted innocent personality. Glad it was just an act to hide her tough side.

Love the character development. She went from a small, submissive girl to an amazing independent hero who's beautiful on the inside and the outside

She is much complicated and deeper character than Mikasa. Her relationship with Eren is really honest. I love her

17 Dot Pixis Dot Pixis is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. He is the commander of the Garrison, and is in charge of the defense of the southern region. He is the highest ranking administrator of the southern region, which includes Trost District. In matters of defense, he is given full authority. This character received controversy in 2010, when Isayama posted a blog post admitting that Dot Pixis was modeled after General Yoshifuru Akiyama, a general in the Imperial Japanese Army, to whom Isayama said "I respect for leading such a simple and frugal life", resulting in death threats from many people more.

"If it means mankind will live on, I don't mind being called a murderer"
My favorite character since his first scene in this anime.

He stopped the Garrison regiment from killing Eren, Mikasa, and Armin. He knows a good person when he sees one.

Pixis is one of my favorites... and it's because he's so collected and optimistic about most situations

18 Zeke Yeager

He is such an epic villain! So what if Levi destroyed him. Just wait until their rematch!

Is considered by Reiner Braun to be the strongest out of all the warriors.

He is better than Levi

His the beast titan, also a very strong warrior most likely better than Levi

19 Krista Lenz

It doesn't surprise me that HISTORIA REIß (her real name) isn't higher on this list, considering most people only watch the anime. In the later chapters of the manga, her character develops a lot, and she even becomes one of the main characters at one point. SPOILERS: She also slayed the biggest Titan known to mankind, her father, Rod Reiß, who has twice the size of Bertholdt's colossus.

Historia (spoiler) is nice and cute and all.

But she is a Mary Sue. Seriously...So many guys want to marry her, she has a protective female friend that ALSO wants to marry her.
Everyone treats her like a goddess.

She is crowned queen.
She slains one of the biggest Titans (I think that was her)

I just don't like her.

She is the best character on the show... and the hottest!

Krista is a very kind and gentle girl. I admire her.

20 Moblit Berner

I really wish we could see more of Moblit. He's the kindest and sanest of the senior officers who never loses his empathy even when trying to accomplish seemingly impossible goals. I really like how he balances out Hange too.

The soundest of all boys. RIP

I like to Moblit Moblit

21 Kenny Ackerman

I loved that he worked for the Reiss family only to get the power of the Founding Titan after Uri died, but as he lay dying, he admitted his selfish motivations to Levi, much like Erwin did.

Kenny "The Ripper" Ackerman is the coolest character in the Attack on Titan manga. He's the swaggiest of all of them and didn't get nearly enough screen (page) time. The only character that comes close is Levi Ackerman, which, predictably, is number one.~

Why did he die soo early

He was soo awesome

22 Pieck Finger

I honestly love peick. She's very independent and can think in the darkest moments. She is also loyal to whoever she decides to be and she may be on the enemy side but she's still pretty bad ass and not to mention her Titan form is hilarious! It's pretty useful to like she can wear armour and carry supplies like imagine if island paradis had peick on there side! Of course she's not though but I mean it's more exciting if the bad side has more of an advantage right? Doesn't it keep you hooked to the show and want to know more? Well I think peick represents that perfectly a hater or not I'm on her side. I'm also voting for eldia to don't feel out.

The ugliest girl in AoT but her personality is really awesome. I like how self confident she is.

23 Grisha Yeager

Grisha Yeager is a badass, Grisha used Zeke as a tool. Grisha ate the founding titan and kills the reiss family. Grisha makes future Eren Jaeger happy for killing the reiss family

Such an important character that people seem to forget. His story is so unfortunate.

"After all, you started this story, didn't you? "

Why do I have a strong feeling that he's the Beast Titan?

24 Eren Kruger

He cut off the fingers of thousands of Subjects of Ymir only to find that one person who held a lot of hate toward Marley and their inhuman behavior towards them.

25 Hannes

Damn, I miss him.

(Spoilers) I didn't realize how much I appreciated this character until he died. He was basically a parenting figure for Mikasa, Armin and Eren. It broke my heart when Mikasa and Eren had to watch Hannes die to the same titan that killed Eren's mother.

I'm boring him, not because he's my favorite character, but he deserves to be in the top 10 and seeing him all the way down here makes me really sad.

Hannes is genuinely a great character, vote for him, and get him top 10!

He is a true hero
