Top 10 Attack on Titan CharactersGamer1270
The Top Ten
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.
By far my favorite, he's total badass! He's incredibly fast, short (but that makes him a little more cooler), and he kicks titan ass!
Levi is badass no doubt about it! He's beautiful and powerful so there is your perfect guy right there.
I feel he should be the main character of the AOTV 212 Comments
She gets to much credit in my opinion...
A lot of these people make excellent points about Mikasa. I won't lie, she's definitely up there in my Top 10 Waifus list. She's gorgeous, has great black hair, is intelligent, strong and possesses many other great traits. But here's the thing, she's a Mary Sue. (Gosh, I hate that word so much...)
Now that I have noticed it, she's basically TOO perfect! She's extremely strong, unbeatable, extremely intelligent, etc. I mean, I am not much of a fan of Levi but even though he's overpowered, he has a very good reason for being so. He's trained for all his life. Mikasa never trained at all and only had one kill in her life. When she joins the army, she is instantly perfect at everything, even being number one higher than Annie!
Next, I don't know what to call her feelings for Eren... Is it an obsession? I heavy crush? Whatever it is, it can't be love. When other girls go for him, she becomes a yandere and becomes a psychopath. When others try to calm her down, she can't be. ...more - Daviddv0601
Maybe she's annoying, because she's always being protective, following Eren anywhere, and if Eren is 'taken' from her, she'll do whatever it takes to get the Eren back. Including killing, even barely having a heart for those who try to calm her or block her (Though the person is forced). But, yes, in the beginning and times of Eren 'taken' it does make you annoyed, but, don't forget, since episodes of anime and manga episodes run, she started to grow as a person who certainly can make you a little relieved. She began to care for Armin, her other friends and colleagues other than Eren. Rescues Sasha when she fails to kill Titan and will be eaten, shouting Jean's name when he'll be shot and try to save him (though in the end the woman who tried to shoot him was killed by Armin), worries and soothe Armin when he think he has killed anyone to save Jean, and many more.She seems to also begin to believe that Eren and Armin can be independent and self-tackling, without her help. And when ...more - nyaanya0910
Love her obssesive behavior for eren, I also love her badass-ness and general attitudeV 88 Comments
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
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).

Armin may not be the strongest character, but he still deserves some credit. And he does grow braver and stronger as time goes on.
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 is the smartest to the show. He is the best and common sense. He's like Levi with being able to quickly analyze situations but he isn't as violent.
I love him. He's so cute! :3 - Daviddv0601V 107 Comments
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.
I've always hated choosing favorite characters, whether it's anime or not. But Jean is by far one of the most powerfully developed characters, if not the most, in all of SnK. As a child he was bullied for being overweight and immediately became anorexic, something that completely changed my thoughts about him since I can relate entirely to the fact of your world turning against you. I suppose what made him a bit of a dick was that he was scared that others would do the same. It's a genuine pain to think that all his anger, his greed and selfishness, the fact that his safety is the only thing he will console in, is all because he's terrified of his comrades judging him enough. I used to hate him, since Eren used to be my all-time hero for all he has done for his friends and family, but since the manga has started to shroud more and more as time goes on I've completely fallen in love with his character development. (Spoilers coming up!) In the Trost battle to seal up the wall, apologies ...more
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.
so cuteV 48 Comments
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
Annie Leonhardt is a strong person and a very complex character. he history is shrouded in mystery which makes her all that more compelling. Plus, she owns everyone.
Annie is just Annie. Which makes her awesome.
A real badass and still a better female character than Mikasa, who I feel is overrated. - Daviddv0601V 41 Comments
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.
Sasha is by no doubt the character that I like the most - she has a queer yet light personality, and she stands out to me most from the other characters.
She's awesome! The only one of them not completely serious and paranoid and doesn't care about anything, eats whenever she wants to, and still a total badass

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
Personally, I don't think Hanji gets enough credit for being not only the most versatile and intelligent of the group, but also one of the most badass. Don't get me wrong, Hange's quirky personality traits, bombastic outbursts of glee, and "affection" for titans is great and unique, but (and there are carefully worded examples below that may be spoiler-ish) I do think it's a bit odd that the conversation at large doesn't focus more on those moments of her going spider-hanji and abducting people in alleyways, or breaking into buildings through ceiling windows, or squaring up to punch someone toting a big shotgun in her face. One of her biggest foils in her personality does seem to be her temper--- sometimes her outbursts or obsession can be downright reckless, but her intuition is on point and I love those moments where she tries to make light of a situation with a joke (see cockroach smashing.) Hanji is complex; compassionate but willing to do the dirty work for the sake of humanity. ...more
Zoë is defiantly not your average character! Sure she seems like your average anime scientist freak at first. But the more you get into the anima (mostly the manga and this next part might be a small spoiler) the more she changes and becomes somewhat of a serious character instead of that comic relief one. That's why I absolutely adore her!
She is crazy and I love herV 43 Comments
He's the only one who really fights Titans. Levi might be humanity's strongest and Eren might be their only hope, but Erwin is the smart guy with political power and tactical mind.
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.
I admire his strength and passion in driving humanity to freedom
and that handsome face is a bonus
The best guy also mike 😘V 40 Comments
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 love Bertolt because we have similar personalities. We're both shy and quiet.
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
I love himV 24 Comments
(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.
How the hell is this guy weaker than the likes of sasha and Annie?
Reiner is likable!V 18 Comments
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 seen as a gentle, kind girl, but she has lots of inner and outer strength. She is a very skilled soldier and one of the best fighters I've seen on the whole show! She's awesome.
Petra is in a tie between my two favourite characters in the series. She was so innocent, nice and she took on the mother role in her squad. She barely appeared until later episodes and died so early. I wish she was still alive. Can I also point out that Petra means rock in Greek and Petra died on a tree. Paper is made out of trees. Petra dies on a tree (paper beats rock) T-T
She seems like a tree hugger 😀 - OoooofV 36 Comments
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
Marco showed Jean what an amazing leader he was and helped him become stronger he was always there encouraging everyone and he is so incredibly selfless
Marco is my favorite character, he's just so nice. I feel that he made such an impact by just being kind to others.
He died and everyone makes a joke of it😭😭😭V 23 Comments
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?! ugh...so 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* - AnimeLister123
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*
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?
Connie is hands down the (2nd) best character in Attack on titan (well 1st place going to sasha) AND THAT'S MY OPINION!V 14 Comments
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."
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.
I find her personality interesting as she is first portrayed as being only selfish and manipulative, but then she meets Historia- someone who she values much more than herself and we see a more in depth look of her true character

Krista is a very kind and gentle girl. I admire her.
If you read the manga you'd see how she's super cool and has one of the greatest character development I have seen
She is the best character on the show... and the hottest!
Eren x Historia ;DV 19 Comments
It literally says he humanity's second strongest solider so ya...
Sucks that Mike didn't get much attention when he sacrificed himself so his team could get away :(
Why does everyone forget Mike! He was such a great character
I miss this dude
He had my fave quote from the entire series "I want to be eaten by a hot lady Titan" seriously he rocks
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
I love how they pronounce his nameV 2 Comments

Farlan deserves more credit that what he gets. Everyone forgets about him but come on! He was loyal, kind, mild-tempered, smart, and would do ANYTHING for Levi and Isabel! He's by far my favorite character even though he's not in the actual series! Not to mention he had such a heartbreaking death! His gear was broken when his horse fell on him and he was unable to do anything as he watched his whole squad die, including Isabel one of his best and only friends, who dies trying to save him! Then in an attempt to avenge her, he was caught and killed. I think he's a better character than people say
Farlan was a great guy who was also a "Lego Piece" in Levi's past, making him perfectly round like we know him today.
The guy needs more credit as well as Isabel from the fans of Levi.
he's cute - axime
Hell no she ain't badass okay people she only killed four titans and it was with assist so she's even weaker than EREN
Just because she makes dramatic sounds while cutting the titans nape doesn't make her badass y'all might want to go and look at top 10 worst attack on titan characters she's there and there are many hate comments about her that you banana lovers will not want to see the comments there are real harsh y'all
Seemed like a good leader. Wished she stayed a bit longer so we could have heard her back story.
He is so good he appears twice
Levi is already in this list. Why add him again? - SelfDestruct
One sentence, he is awesome. Need I say more?
Isabel was a major, what I would call it, "Lego Piece" in Levi's past. I don't think that if Isabel was there, Levi would be "perfectly round" like he is right now.
I think she deserves more credit from the fans of Levi.
Isabel is a character that really reaches me and my favorite character (second is Rico)
She is so cute and funny girl
When I see isabel,i think she really like eren.her eyes,her smile,her spirit,those all kinds are really like eren.And somehow I think that she was levi's first love.LOL,please don't bully me.I just tell the truth in my mind,and I think about petra ral.She likes levi a lot,kind of fans maybe? When I think who's the one he (levi) choose betweeen isabel and petra,i think he'll prefer isabel after all~V 3 Comments
He knows how to walk away from everyone's lies
Come on PEEEPS
Thank you for taking Mikasa under your wing. You will be remembered Carla Yeager x - TwilightKitsune
MS.Carla yeager shouldn't of used dead mother hair - Arminlover101
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.~
So pretty, shouldn't have died so early on
My personal favorite. One of the few characters that provides comedic relief in the anime and I love him for it.
He was an awesome character and I can definitely see why levi picked him for the first special operations squad
I honestly wish Gunther and Eld got more screentime. We never learned much about them. However, for now, we have this: I'm not gay, but Eld is damn sexy.
I love him, he's a fantastic person and he is strong
The ugliest girl in AoT but her personality is really awesome. I like how self confident she is.
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.
He is the only titan who can speak and he beat the Armored titan Easily
He is by far the cleverest person in attack n titans because he is the one that planned the final battle in the manga. He is the strongest titan shifter alive because he easily beat the armoured titan. It is also proved he is as clever as Hange. Plus he can control titan that have been injected whith his serem.
Titan Eren is awesome
Titan Eren is hot.
She was always level-headed. When she thought a plan would fail, she expressed her opinion clearly. When orders from above came and told her to do something she thought was risky, she still followed them Rico was an intelligent and loyal person from Attack on Titan
She's such a badass and so underrated
She is just the best!
SHe is so cool!
Kuchel gave birth to Levi and took care of him. I know Levi has a special place in his heart for Kuchel. Levi loves Kuchel more then anything
I love Kuchel she kept Levi despite him being an accident and was always a caring mother for him
Kuchel needs more love! I mean she did take care of Levi, after all
I love Kuchel!
He deserved more screen time
He is awesome
(Manga Spoiler Warning) I was gonna vote for Bertl but then I saw this. Why did the manga have to do this to me? Dina's story is so tragic. She wasn't really fleshed out as a character but she never really did anything wrong! And she clearly loved Grisha very much, and I have to say that even with her little screen (or would it be page) time I like her better than Carla. Can't wait for Season 3. And Season 4. Probably Season 4 more than 3.
Whats this even doing on the list he belongs on "most hated aot character! "
mr aot's tigerclaw!
I kind of admire him, but not as much as Erwin Smith. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Such an underrated character, reminds me a lot of Jean and Erwin actually... Also his death was probably outshone my Marco's as they were in the same episode and I think people would have noticed Marco's more :-(
For all you people who only watch anime, let me tell you vote the Great King Titan
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.
Lol are you taking the piss? - BrickBoots142
I love him, human or Titan. I hope we get to see more of him. There's still so much work that can be done with this character.
He's a titan that's strong but he's stupid
Annoying bitch and no
