Top 10 Attack on Titan Characters

The Top Ten
1 Levi 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".

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.

He's the best charcter ever. Probably Reason to watch the anime for more than half of the audience. Who in the right mind would not declare him best. And the ultimate truth is that the walls were created to protect Titans from Levi.

People that hate him just because he's overrated and say he's one dimensional are idiots. Seriously, they're absolute morons. Levi has the most character development out of everyone in the show. He's the prime reason Eren progresses as a character and people keep forgetting this! Eren became stronger BECAUSE of Levi. That's a fact. Levi taught him about his Titan powers and how to defend himself and now Eren has done a complete 360. Without Levi, Erwin and Hanji, Eren would have got nowhere. It's amazing how the hatebase cannot see this.

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.

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 ...read more.

Stop calling every strong female characters mary sues. Its getting seriously annoying people. Ever heard of the term natural talent. As for levi he's in the same boat as her he is also naturally talented and because of his experience surpasses her. He's called humanity's strongest soldier. U don't get such a title simply from being experienced. U have to have some sort of superhuman talent which is something both of them have.As for her supposedly being overprotective and clingy dud u people skip over her backstory or u just don't have any understanding of human psychology. The guy saved her from getting sold into sex slavery and gave her a family. Wouldn't u be eternally grateful and overprotective towards someone who did that for u unless of course if your ungrateful bastards. So stop your hate and go get an understanding of human psychology and the term natural talent. Its something people are born with it cannot be learned. Its not something that is exclusive to only men. Both men ...more

I didn't really like Mikasa at first, but these days I've been realizing how amazing of a character she is, despite the fact that she's eren obsessed.

Mikasa has different personalites: Sometimes she's independent and level-headed, other times she's emotional and other times she sometime else. All in all, I really like her character.

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

3 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 ...read more.

I think he is the best out of all the three main characters, Mikasa might be a badass and Strong but I don't like that she just keep whining around Eren.
Eren is not that bad but not that good either. So, Armin is the best one of these three

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

Like Mikasa- I didn’t like Armin at first. I thought he was annoying because of how much of a coward he was. But now I’ve grown to really like him. (SPOILERS!) He’s one of the smartest characters in the show. He found out Annie was the female titan, he uncovered Reiner’s hiding spot in season 3 and he even helped defeat Bertolt.

Quiet but Strong. A character that uses his brains more than his fists. I always love the smart characters and nobody can deny how intelligent Armin is. Without him there would have been so many more deaths in this already bloody show. He has such a good character arch and I'm so happy to see him go from a meek, passive, character to someone who is confident in his skill and is undeniably a hero.

4 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's not just the best character of the series but the best protagonist of all time. Not every hero needs to be perfect and yes he had flaws when he was young and yes he led to people death while protecting him, but he always does whatever he can and always tries the hardest and always ends up suffering a lot more than many. He knows that he's not the best, that is why he tries the best, irrespective of the pain he's about to bear, that's what makes him perfectly written character. Being badass doesn't mean that character is perfectly written, though it might mean perfect character. This might sound weird but think once, if Levi (say eren with Levi characteristics, best at everything) were the protagonist of this series, it'd not have gained even 20% of the current popularity. AoT is Erens journey, from being imperfect to growing towards a great warrior(or monster) protecting everyone he loves. Even you or I if powerful can be a Levi, but no one can be Eren other than Eren himself. ...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 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

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.

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.

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.

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!

6 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.

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).

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.

Okay guys, I just finished manga and anime for third time and I must say she is my most favourite character... Badass, good looking, cute and best backstory. She reminds me myself few years ago: introvert, with only few friends and with "secret". Too bad she is crystal now, but our favourite fandom revive her... I love her.

7 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.

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 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.

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

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

8 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

He is the one person who turned the survey core from voluntary suicide to an actual titan fighting organisation. His smartness, leadership, bravery and most of all his ability to take risks make him stand out among the rest. Without him I am sure humanity would not stand a chance against the titans. He is a hero.

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.

Reiner is my favorite character! He is straight up the best character in the show! Eren is overrated and who in the right mind likes armin. Smh

I love that he always puts his mission first no matter what happens, and I love his titan form

The Contenders
11 Bertolt Hoover

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

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.

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.

Honestly, he's not half the man he used to be. But I still think he's not half bad! When he was on his way to heaven, I would told him he was halfway there. Also, I wanna get a shirt with him on it, b only when it's half off.
I'll show myself out

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

I think thia amazingly created character doesn't deserve to die I felt bad for Jean as my heart also broke into pieces after hearing this news. (he doesn't deserve HALF the credit what do I do with my life anyways;-

13 Connie Springer

Where do I even start! Connie’s the best! I love him so damn much, he’s so funny. Basically the only source of humor in this show at this point.

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.

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?! 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*

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.

(Spoilers) I don’t have much to say about this character other than it broke me at that scene with her dad and Levi. And her body getting tossed out of that cart was just too much for me to handle.

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 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’s my favorite character. levi needed her, eren needed her, zoe needed her and I actually needed her too. if she has got such a high score even if she died soon it means that she was amazing. when isayama said that he wanted her to come back and that he was thinking about it, I really hoped it. to be honest, I’m still waiting for her... I always did it and I’ll always do it, even if this anime ends.

15 Historia Reiss

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

Historia is way better than her fake personality of Krista, more relatable and tolerable

Her character development. She turned from a cute softy to a cute badass. Love her.

16 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 ...read 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

Didn't had much screen time after season 1

17 Ymir

Ymir should definitely be higher up this list. I admire how she is so complex and shows that it's okay to be selfish sometimes. Her relationship with Historia is also very cute.

I think Ymir is by far the most interesting female character. She is complex, and very mysterious at first, and I think her relationship with Krista is one of the most compelling in the show.

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 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

19 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 deserved better :(

20 Krista Lenz

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.
(SPOILER AHEAD)

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

I just don't like her.

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.

She is so BEAUTIFUL she's clever gentle and has some attitude when she's mad

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

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

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

He knows how to walk away from everyone's lies

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.

He deserved more screen time
