Top 10 Best Attack On Titan Pairings

List of your favorite pairings in the popular series Shingeki No Kyojin, also known as Attack on Titan.
The Top Ten
1 Mikasa Ackerman x Eren Yeager

I think Levi x Eren is really stupid. They show not one sign of being gay throughout the entire series. The two childhood friends/family (Mikasa and Eren) I think have the highest chance of ending up together later in the series. From the scene when they were younger, when Eren wraps his red scarf around young Mikasa, they appear to be blushing as Mikasa comments on how warm it is.

Later, when Eren recovers from the beating while he was tied to a pole at court in season two, Mikasa is shown waiting by Eren's side, holding the red scarf that was given to her way back when. Not to mention, Mikasa repeatedly says "Eren" throughout the series, almost as Sakura Haruno does to Sasuke Uchiha.

In the last episode of season two, "Scream", it shows how Mikasa slowly confesses her feelings toward Eren while moving closer to his face. But we still don't know where the ship is going to go due to the fact we don't know exactly how Eren feels about his adopted sister.

2 Levi Ackerman x Hanji Zoe

They had a special bond that could be seen as platonic or romantic. It really depends, but I personally saw it as romantic. Especially (spoiler ahead), right before Hanji dies, Levi finally says Dedicate your heart. The difference is he gives his salute to her. He's metaphorically giving his heart to her right before she has to leave. Obviously, he wanted to stop her and say more, but she didn't let him because she knew they didn't have enough time. She wanted to leave quickly to avoid a more tragic goodbye.

Then, when everyone watches her go out heroically as she wanted, Levi doesn't watch. Instead, he asks her to watch over them because he can't cope with Hanji's death out of everyone else he's seen die. He couldn't watch it, unlike when all his other comrades died. I don't know. It might just be me, but they definitely had a cute relationship.

I think this ship is the most realistic in SnK. Levi acts differently around Hange, and Isayama has mentioned that Levi is clumsy/awkward in love. Reflecting on this, I notice all the jokes he directs at Hanji and the hair grab scene. Also, look at chapter 90, where he is gazing at her, not at the ocean. Consider his expression when Hanji was injured, or when he learned she was alive. This may seem like friendship, but the show is not about love. In the world of soldiers from SnK, they don't dwell on love. Love follows friendship because they meet others not to find love but to make friends. Then, they fall in love.

Moreover, Levi struggles to express himself. Do you think he would act differently if he were with someone? No. He's not that type. As for Hanji, she has stated she doesn't know anyone who can deal with her. She doesn't act romantically because she doesn't believe someone would want her. So, please, if you dislike this ship because it's not overtly romantic, I've provided examples of why that is.

3 Jean Kirstein x Marco Bott

You can see how close they are, and it is so sweet. Marco is the first person to believe in Jean as a leader and boosts Jean's confidence, pushing him to do better. And you can tell how upset Jean is when Marco dies. Later, you can even see him kiss the hand he had Marco's ashes on. It is just the sweetest thing ever.

Leaving out the fact that Marco's homosexuality has been confirmed, I think he is one of the most shippable AoT couples, both in terms of personal tastes and for theoretical reasons, based on the events of the anime/manga.

They immediately established a beautiful relationship. There is no denying it! After Marco's death, Jean, in addition to feeling shocked for having abandoned him when he was most needed, was particularly shaken. So much so that he let himself go to the pinnacle, and promised the latter to give his all, in front of the bonfire of his bones.

They are adorable, and I find it very viable as a couple! I love them so much.

4 Eren Yeager x Levi Ackerman

I primarily ship this because it was the first pairing I encountered, and it's adorable. I know Mikasa has sexual feelings for Eren, but he sees her more as a motherly figure. The creator hinted he 'might' illustrate a romantic scene between them. However, because Eren x Levi is so popular, he might depict that as well. In my view, it's charming. I understand some believe age is important, but it's common in a gay relationship for one male to be significantly older than the other. This makes it perfect. I always find myself shipping my favorite character with the main character, and Levi is my favorite. It's not pedophilia since Eren is 18-19 at present. He joined at 15 and after three years of training, he would be 18-19. I SHIP IT!

I ship these two - like, really badly. My girlfriend and I see ourselves as Ereri. No, we don't have an age difference, but we still see ourselves in this way. I ship them because of their zodiac signs, Eren being an Aries and Levi a Capricorn. It is known that the relationship works better because of the age difference. By the way, there are a lot of ships with these types of age gaps. We all get the hate because of this ship, and we are all sick of it. They both have a terrible past and communicate through body language. Eren has a lot of respect for Levi, and Levi saves Eren's ass a lot. Levi said that he would kill Eren if he lost control of his Titan form, but when he did, Levi didn't do anything. Levi helps Eren, and Eren looks up to Levi (down if we mean literally). These are only some of the reasons why I ship them.

5 Armin Arlert x Annie Leonhart

Whether platonic or romantic, you cannot deny that these two share a bond with each other before Annie crystallized herself. Sure, Eren might have made her smile, but being told she's a good person probably meant a lot more to her. Similarly, being told he has guts despite his weakness meant something to Armin, who has low self-esteem. "Armin never cared about Annie"? Really? Then why did he desperately want to be wrong for once and wait an entire month to reveal her identity? Annie, on the other hand, had multiple chances to kill him but never did. She spared him. She also cares about what he thinks of her. She knew Armin was lying about helping Eren escape and went anyway because she still wanted to be that good person for him.

I've shipped this since 2015, knowing there was something going on when Annie saved Armin twice, or their talk in the tunnel. Those people should have listened to me. This ship is immaculate. Crystal pining, talks of being a good person, "I missed you" confessions, Annie's desire to save Armin - it's all top-tier.

6 Erwin Smith x Levi Ackerman

Isayama himself said that he isn't even sure that Levi was interested in women. However, his preferred type was someone tall. Erwin is one of the tallest in the scouts, so it makes sense. They also have an extremely interesting bond. Seeing as in ACWNR, we see Levi give up on his past and choose to follow Erwin, even though his original plans included having Erwin killed. I think it really shows how much trust he puts into his commander, looking up to him as he does so.

Without Erwin, many opportunities have been opened up to him. I think that's definitely the reason why, continuing after Erwin's death, he wanted to fulfill his promise to kill Zeke and his Titans.

One of the most beautiful, meaningful, and powerful connections in the entire series is between Erwin and Levi. Levi's feelings for Erwin are paralleled to Mikasa's feelings for Eren. Not necessarily because of the Ackerbond, but because they truly felt that way about them. Their relationship is built on an immense amount of trust and respect. Levi was Erwin's last stronghold of humanity and became a significant part of Erwin's flesh and blood. Erwin was the only person Levi put his full trust in and devoted himself to. Even after Erwin's death, Levi continued to devote himself to the point of obsession to completing every last mission Erwin gave him. Levi cast the fate of humanity aside to let Erwin rest in peace and not live in hell anymore. Erwin showed his vulnerability to Levi and to Levi only. Their love was unique and painfully wonderful to experience.

7 Armin Arlert x Eren Yeager

If there's any ship that even stands a chance of becoming canon, I'd bet my money on Eremin. Not only is it Hajime Isayama's favorite ship out of the entire cast, despite being an underrated ship, but it has also been pointed out on several occasions in the manga how Armin is the closest to Eren. Armin is the person who has known Eren the longest and understands him more than anything. Not to mention, their dream, the central idea around which Eren's world revolves, first originated with Armin. It is their shared desire which propels them to pull through the hell of everyday life. Even though currently, they are basically on opposite sides, I'm positive that they will reconcile. Because I don't think Eren, despite being cold and heartless as he is right now, can bring himself to kill his best friend of over ten years. Their unbreakable bond and the lack of hesitance to sacrifice their lives for each other already prove how special their relationship is. For me, if anyone is capable of loving Eren, despite all his flaws and mistakes, it's Armin.

8 Ymir x Historia Reiss

They're the only canon couple in AOT, and they were soulmates, tragic soulmates unfortunately. Ymir and Historia would die for each other, and it shows throughout season 2 up to Ymir leaving, sacrificing herself for the sake of protecting her. People think Historia only saw Ymir as a friend, but don't realize she doesn't know how to express her love for Ymir through words, only in actions because of her upbringing. But she loved her a lot. If you read the manga, you'd realize that their love was not at all one-sided. Ymir wanted to marry her, for Christ's sake, & Historia didn't care if she betrayed the scouts. She wanted to be with Ymir and leave with her until the very end. They both are my comfort characters, and their relationship brings me comfort as a lesbian too.

I love these two so much. Their love is so pure. I'm so grateful to Isayama for including a lesbian couple and making it canon because lesbians don't get a lot of representation in the media, and when they do, they're usually being fetishized. All I can say is they deserved better, and I wish they could have grown old together.

9 Levi Ackerman x Petra Ral

This is simply a relationship of respect and trust. The scene with Petra's father and Levi showed that her father wanted Levi to know that she respected him very much and that he was worried if she was willing to put her life on the line. He meant that she is missing out on a lot, like marriage, and also that she is very young still.

That scene where he stole a badge, who knows for sure if it was her hand over there because her entire squad had the same bitten mark! And also, why Levi looked at Petra's corpse the longest was because hers had the most brutal positioning, other than the others, and also because hers was the last of Levi's squad members' dead bodies in order.

I don't mean to offend, but I love them as soldiers with respect for each other. Nothing else.

To me, this ship makes the most sense of the Levi ships. Think about it. Eren x Levi is disgusting. They're over fifteen years apart. Gross. Secondly, there is no chemistry at all. Levi does not have feelings for Eren, for sure. I don't even think Levi thinks of Eren as a friend. And Levi did not want to go back for Eren because he liked him. It was because it's practically Levi's job to protect Eren. He is very important to humanity's salvation. I also think it is partially because he had just lost nearly all of his squad. Eren was the only remaining member aside from Levi himself. He probably didn't want to lose another soldier. Plus, he was obviously taking out his anger of his squad's death on the Female Titan. He was not rushing to save Eren.

And the Mikasa x Levi is again, disgusting. They're RELATED. Plus, they greatly dislike each other. The Levi x Hanji ship just doesn't make sense. It's a known fact that he just tolerates her. I can sort of see Erwin x Levi, but they more like best friends to me.

Petra x Levi makes the most sense. I think most of us think Petra loves Levi for sure, considering that scene with Levi and Petra's father. In my opinion, it's pretty clear that Petra's father was talking to Levi about Petra being too young to get married because she loved him. Secondly, I've noticed the fact that Petra has one of the most titan kills, yet Levi tends to send Petra away from Titans at any chance he finds will be reasonable.

And, when Levi found the dead bodies of his squad, he was very upset. But he actually stopped to look at Petra. And the shot lingered on his reaction. The deaths of his squad made him upset, but Petra's death affected him the most. And then there was that scene where Levi stole Petra's badge. Unfortunately, he gave it away to calm down a soldier. Though when he gave it away, his eyes lingered on the badge. Almost longingly. And when her body got thrown off the carriage, he had such a hurt look in his... more

10 Sasha Blouse x Connie Springer

I ship this too! They really have a lot in common, and when Sasha died, I felt bad for Connie and the others. I even cried too. Even Mikasa stood by her grave from morning to evening and kept praying for her to come back. She even ate alone, but at Sasha's grave, as if they were eating together. I don't really ship MikaSash, but as best friends. Thank you for the inspiration, and have a wonderful day!

Okay, joking about "Sasha is with the food" or "Sasha x Potato" is not funny. I think the pairing with Connie is the most wonderful and truthful. From Connie's statement about Sasha's death: "Sasha and I were like twins. I feel like I've lost half of myself." One can clearly understand the bond that bound them and the pain Connie feels for her loss. They complemented each other, always stood together, and I never saw them apart. They laughed and joked about things that only they understood. They truly understood each other. I'll stop here because otherwise, I'll cry. They were and will remain beautiful in my eyes.

The Contenders
11 Historia Reiss x Ymir

I hate how she dies right when Historia realizes her feelings for Ymir.

When Ymir left Historia that love letter, my heart was filled with joy.

Because they hang out a lot, and they always stay together, and I just ship it, in my opinion.

12 Mikasa Ackerman x Sasha Blouse

I love this ship because it has a lot of scenes, like in Season 1, I think, where they were in the supply base going to kill the remaining Titans. Sasha failed, but Mikasa helped her. Also, in the manga, they got drunk, and Mikasa and Sasha were sleeping on each other.

Just watch the anime and read the manga, and pay attention to Mikasa and Sasha whenever they are together.

I don't really see romance between them, but to be fair, they are so funny when they're together! I see them as huge besties, though.

13 Reiner Braun x Bertholdt Hoover

This is such an underrated ship. You can see how incredibly close they are, especially after Bertholdt's death. Reiner is so sad and lost without him.

Reiner admitted he's gay, and his feelings for Bertholdt are definitely more than just close friends. He pretends to like Christa/Historia to gain trust from everyone in the 104th Cadets. Bertholdt and Reiner have been together longer than with anyone else. Plus, Bertholdt has feelings for him. He loves being protected by Reiner and is very dependent on him.

SPOILER: Bertholdt's last words were, "Annie! REINER!"

I know Reiner likes Historia (but she and Ymir are canon - don't @ me), and Bertholdt likes Annie, but they did have a close friendship. I remember Ymir saying she got the impression Reiner isn't interested in women. Is it canon? No. Is it possible? I feel like it is.

14 Levi Ackerman x Erwin Smith

Erwin and Levi have an equal and mutual relationship filled with trust, compassion, and commitment. And Erwin was Levi's most significant person, who could never be replaced since he was in Levi's life in an irreplaceable way.

Levi and Erwin share, canonically, the most beautiful relationship in canon. Whether you agree it is romantic or not, the fact that they save each other's lives is canon and absolutely beautiful!

"Mutual and equal relationship"... there is no pair, if not maybe Yumihisu, holding such depth!

15 Mikasa Ackerman x Jean Kirstein

I think she's better with Jean because Jean represents something new and different, offering new colors and hope, which is certainly a departure from what she has been receiving from Eren. She and Eren are impossible to be a couple due to Isayama's confirmation. All the while, I've observed Mikasa treating Eren as if she is his mother, and Eren also regards her as a mother - caring, loving, and protective, though Eren sometimes gets annoyed that Mikasa is overly protective of him. On the other hand, Jean is jealous of Eren's closeness with Mikasa. I believe he deserves Mikasa. I'm sure he'll be a good lover to Mikasa, loving her in the way Eren does but in different ways and levels.

I think Jean and Mikasa should become a couple. Jean loves Mikasa, and he will always be there to protect her. On the other hand, Eren should end up with Krista. Eren loves Mikasa but sees her more as an annoying elder sister and a protective mother. I am not opposed to Eren ending up with Mikasa, but I am sure Eren will not agree to it. Eren should end up with Krista, which is an excellent pairing. (Eren as the body and Krista as the blood). (Sorry for my English).

16 Sasha Blouse x Potato

My crack OTP, the female version of Draco x Apple. They should be together forever. When Sasha retires, because God, she better retire, I'd love her to be a farmer so she can bask in all the vegetables and meat she desires.

I shipped them from the very beginning... I just knew that they would be together forever, despite their differences... so many differences... For all those out there who don't know what true love is, all you need to do is simply look at Sasha... and her potato.

I shouldn't have to say anything about this pairing. It's just so natural.

17 Armin Arlert x Krista Lenz

Armin x Krista is the best ship ever. I mean, Armin has shown quite an interest in Krista. In episode 18 of season 1, Armin refers to her as a goddess, and in episode 3 of season 2, he says that Krista is cute!

No. 3 is that in episode 8 of season 2, when all the soldiers are preparing to go save Eren, Armin advises Krista not to go and to stay within the walls. THIS IS SO...UHH!

No. 4 is that... after the four-month time skip where Eren, Armin, and Jean were in some orphanage or something, Historia is yelling at some children and Armin smiles at her and says that people in the town have started calling her 'The Cattle Farming Goddess'. Hehehe... and in my opinion, I think that Armin seems a little jealous when Historia stays with Eren. Watch ep 11 of season 3, and you will know...

Don't forget the OTHER blonde, you know, the one in the crystal crying out for Armin's name.

They look like twins.

18 Jean Kirstein x Armin Arlert

Honestly, this ship deserves way more attention, at least their friendship. It's so good. Jean really cares for and supports Armin, and Armin keeps saving Jean's life as if he's made it his life goal. Their moral conflicts and how they interlace are so interesting. Height differences. Oh, and I feel like both of them caring for Eren in their own (very different) ways could be something that brings them closer too.

They are both really kind to each other and became very close in such a short amount of time. Armin protected Jean from the titan despite the fact that he was terrified. Jean comforted Armin after some man got weird with him and made him feel uncomfortable. They weren't very close in the beginning, but they've bonded and become friends. They protect and believe in each other.

Marco and Jean are VERY popular in the SNK fandom, but I mean... Marco's dead.

If you look closely at the manga and anime, you'll find out that Armin and Jean became close friends. I feel like Armin actually helped Jean get over Marco's death.

19 Levi Ackerman x Windex

People, just enjoy how lucky we are that we can bask in the presence of this glorious ship. Things like this aren't found often. This is my OTP, and it always will be. This ship is the best AOT ship and always will be. Just be thankful that this is around because you don't find stuff like this every day.

We all know that Levi loves to clean, so I mean this is perfection. Like, seriously, who couldn't get a more perfect ship than this?

Honestly, I really believe this ship can come true. It's the best ship in the whole fandom... it's practically already canon.

20 Petra Ral x Oluo Bozado

I prefer this pairing much more than Petra x Levi. You can see there's much more going on between them, and it seems much more possible to me. Petra would certainly notice the amount of effort Oluo puts in for her.

Orupeto forever! They are married in heaven, and what's more? They died together! Oluo witnessed his girl die. Who can replace him? They are so cute together - the cutest bickering couple. It's canon!

I kind of ship them. Why did they have to die? Isayama stated that Petra and Oluo would have gotten married if he hadn't killed them off.

21 Eren Yeager x Annie Leonhart

Annie, to me, is one of the few girls who have much interaction with Eren. Even their closeness is almost identical to Eren's closeness with Mikasa. Indeed, it has been confirmed that Eren has only a deep sense of respect for her, as well as her proximity to Mikasa, who is like a mother to him. Remember, Eren was one of those people who had an interest in martial arts like Annie and asked her to teach him. He was also one of the few who made her smile.

In fact, the person whom Eren thinks of as a mother (Mikasa), seems to believe in them. She even once asked Annie where he was (at the time of the Battle of Trost arc). When Eren learns that Annie is the Female Titan suspect, he cannot even afford to transform. He even feels shaken, and he cannot even hate her. Unlike when he learns that Reiner and Bertholdt are also traitors like Annie, even those who are close, and he thinks of Mikasa, who is like a mother, asks if he has any special feelings for her. Eren has never answered her question until now.

However, when he fights with Reiner, he remembers Annie (when they trained together), and uses the martial techniques she taught him. And I'm sure Annie would be proud of him when she saw Eren actually practicing the techniques she taught him (when he fought against Reiner). I hope they'll be a couple at the end!

22 Mikasa Ackerman x Annie Leonhart

I really like it, and I feel like they are the kind of couple who understands each other.

One of the best duos in the world!

Enemies to lovers.

23 Sasha Blouse x Niccolo

I love food as much as Sasha, if not more, so a man who can cook amazing food would be a plus for me.

Canon and perfect. That's all I need to say.

They're just cute. I rest my case.

24 Pieck Finger x Jean Kirstein

I want a happy ending for Jean too, and since Mikasa doesn't appreciate him enough, I'm going to ship him with Pieck.

25 Eren Yeager x Historia Reiss

I know it isn't popular, but they were lowkey cute together. I know Eren and Mikasa have a deeper bond and everything, but if she weren't in the picture, this would definitely be a good runner-up. They got close in season 3, which was nice.

I hope that their beautifully growing relationship will not turn into flat crap in season 3. We all know that the director of the anime (anime, not manga) is a hard-ass Eremika shipper, so I'm sure he will do everything he can to destroy the Eren/Hisu ship. In the Uprising arc, Eren and Hisu had a lot of sweet interactions. Eren was the first person (after Ymir) who was able to fully understand Historia and cheer her up. I don't remember Eren having this kind of relationship with Mikasa. I'm not trying to offend Eremika, but sometimes I get the feeling that people ship them because Mikasa is the leading female and Eren is the leading male.

Through the manga, we can definitely see the development of their relationship. Sure, we can say that Historia has special feelings toward Ymir, but that doesn't prevent her from creating new bonds with other characters, and more exactly, Eren. They both have a tragic background story and try their best to allow humanity to develop and improve positively. Moreover, we can see a mutual understanding and respect between them. I'm sure this ship has big potential.
