Top Ten Best Attack On Titan Pairings

List of your favorite pairings in the popular series Shingeki No Kyojin, AKA Attack on Titan

The Top Ten

1 Eren x Levi

Um yes pleaseee! These two are my life. Sure Levi beat him in court but it was to save his butt. And when Levi saved Eren, yes. If that was anyone else he probably wouldn't have gone back. And you may be thinking "ya because eren is valuable." Ik he is but I have a gut feeling that's not the only reason. And people are probably saying that levi doesn't have feelings. He just wears a mask, every mask has something beneath it. And Levi is the most feeling character with the worst past in the show. He had two friends and they died right in front of him. He lost his parents and he lost his team.

I think this is canon, and here's why.
Let's get this cleared up.
-Pedophilia is an adult being attracted to a child 13 or younger.
-YumiHisu has a larger age gap and is canon.
-When asked about Levi's preferred type of woman, Isayama said he wasn't sure if he even liked women in the first place, then proceed to say he just likes tall people.
-Isayama has stated that Eren views Mikasa as a sister or mother figure and, though he appreciated her presence, will eventually grow independent from her.

-There's a manga panel where Eren's hand is on Levi's thigh.
-In the Visual Novel, it's revealed that Levi DID NOT want to beat Eren in court and instead did it as a last resort. For those who say he overdid it, well OF COURSE HE DID. If you were trying to save someone's life, you wouldn't know what was "going too far" or when you should stop. What if he under-did it and Eren got taken away and killed? Levi just wanted to save him.
-In all or almost all of the ...more

Okay, this is an amazing ship. Ik that there is a lot of hate but I still love it. It isn't pedophilia, though. Eren is an adult in my book. I mean, he is in the military and holds the weight of the human race on his shoulders without cracking. This is not something a "child" could do. Also the age gap really isn't a problem. They are only around 15 years apart and I have seen relationships in fictional stories that have been a lot larger, sometimes even the span of a few thousand years and yet no one complains about those!

Technically speaking, Levi is kind of like a kuudere. At first, Levi was always mean to Eren ( Or basically anyone.) but, over time I think he started growing (not physically he's still might be 'vertically challenge' as Edward Elric calls it.) and he started being more nice. From being mean and beating, to trying to be nice. This also implies, that maybe Eren is also starting to take a liking in Levi, or is inspired by him. Like that one time he was yelling at the others (Not gonna list the names to tired to.) that they had walked in with mud on their shoes. Seems like something Levi would do. I also do think, that Levi kind of sees something in Eren, I don't know if this could be true or not, but Levi could think that Eren has a similar past to him. Seeing a friend/family member being harmed by a huge creature at a young age. Then want revenge. Although Levi seems really heartless, I think he puts on a mask so no one will worry about him, because he is worrying about them instead. ...more

2 Mikasa x Eren

I think Levi x Eren is really stupid. The two show not one sign of being gay throughout the whole entire series. The two childhood friends/family (Mikasa and Eren) I think have the highest chance of ending up together later on 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 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 Erens side holding the red scarf that was given to her way back when. Not to mention Mikasa repeatedly says "Eren" through out the series almost how Sakura Haruno does to Sasuke Uchiha. In the last episode of season two, Scream, it shows how Mikasa slowly confesses her feeling 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 is adopted sister.

I love Eren's way to love and consider Mikasa. Indeed, he does not have romantic feelings for Mikasa, as the fans had been so desperate, but he had a deep feeling for her. Perhaps, he didn't look at Mikasa like a lover or a wife, but more like a mother. Indeed, this makes the fans a bit annoyed, but I prefer them like this. Eren sometimes gets rude and scolds Mikasa for being so overprotective and always follows him wherever, whatever happens, and treats him like a baby, but I'm sure, Eren is very loves and cares with her and never hates her for all that. He may want to someday want to repay all the love and sacrifice that Mikasa gave him, but in a way like a son thanks to the love his mother gave him. Meanwhile, Mikasa has saved by Eren when she was kidnapped, and welcome her for join Jaeger's family, and since then, she has seen it as a 'home' and the important person she has to protect. Carla, Eren's mom, entrusts her to take care of Eren. And ever since Carla died, she acted as a ...more

Mikasa has always had a thing for eren ever since he saved her when they were 9. After her confession scene though it was basically canon although I don't think eren feels the same way. They would look really cute together and I hope it's the end game couple.

Agreed. Everyone seems to think everything has to be gay these days. Annoying. Even my lesbian daughter thinks it's dumb. This ship ruins all the amazing work the creator did in building these characters. And the fact that so many little entitled whiners keep writing and saying that they want this and that's what should be done they should just shut up and just enjoy the show

3 Jean x Marco

Manga spoiler: after reiner told jean what really happend with Marco, jean went to the woods, started crying and hold his ears close so he could hear no one except himself. So if you tell me even after that scene you still think jean didn't had any feelings for Marco then you are wrong.

They only knew each other for half the season but Marcos death made Jean join the survey Corps

They were only with each other for half a season, but the chemistry they had? There's no way they aren't gay.

They didn't have much time together (A little less than HALF a season) But that time they had together, they were like two HALVES to one whole.

4 Levi x Hanji

Hanji and Levi is totally my OTP because they are just so compatible. The have the same values and make the same type of weird humor. They've made a special bond with each other over their years together and have developed a strong connection with each other.

- Ever notice that Levi only has a nickname for her? "bad glasses" or "Four eyes". Sure he calls people names but his nicknames for her are consistent. They are often teasing each other and making weird jokes.

- He knows that she's very unhygienic and even still we see that hair grab in episode 9. When have we ever seen Levi get touchy-touchy with anyone, besides when he's killing them or comforting them at their time of death? So that hair grab was a big hint.

- Hanji understands him so well that she often finishes off his sentences as can be seen in the manga

- I love their height difference, it's so cute.

- Isayama doesn't want romance in his manga, however he does give ...more

The relationship between them has grown so much during the years of working together. I feel like they have a strong bond of trust. Their differences are what make them amazing too. They fight, tease each other, and work together so much, they are pretty much bros. Romance or not, they are the best pairing in my opinion.

I think this ship is the most realistic ship in Snk. Levi acts really different when it comes to Hange and Isayama said that Levi is clumsy/awkward in love and when I think about it I see this all jokes he makes to Hanji and hair grab scene. Also look in chapter 90 when he is looking at Her not at the ocean. And his face when Hanji was injured, or face when he learned that she is alive. I know this maybe look as friendship but this show is not about love and in world of soldiers from snk they don't think about love, love comes for them after friendship because they meet others not to find love but make friends and Then they fall in love. Also I want to say that Levi can't express himself and do you think that when he would has someone he would act different? No. He is not that type. If we talk about Hanji she said that she doesn't know a person who can deal with her. So she doesn't act romantic because she doesn't believe that someone would want her. So please if you hate this ship ...more

I mean...Hanji is freakin crazy and I love her. It's obvious that Hanji cares about what happens to Levi and I definitely know that she'd be depressed if he ever died. I know that Levi feels the same way about her. It's a mutual respect situation.

5 Levi x Petra

My opinion, I hate it. No chemistry at all. And that ONE SCENE FROM THE ANIME doesn't count. Fangirls didn't get the point of that scene. The point wasn't to show that Levi cared about his "true love", the point was to show the hurt of EVERYONE in the Survey Corps and the emotions of EVERYONE and the effects on EVERYONE. Levi cared about everyone else too, they focused on others equally. Don't think just cause a boy cares about a girl's death doesn't mean they were ROMANTICALLY in love. There are many people in this world who has actually had a time like that and can prove this point. Bestfriends care about each other just like a romantic couple will. This is just my opinion. I don't care what you ship.You guys can headcanon what you want, you are allowed to ship whoever you want and think of this scene however you want, but don't shove this scene in our faces and expect that everyone will think this is right. Now that I have my point across, Ship let ship, and goodnight people.

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. Obviously he meant that she is missing out 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 that 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

I really, really don't get why people hate this ship. It's true that we don't see a lot of chemistry between Levi and Petra in the anime, but in the manga and the visual novel, there IS major chemistry. Petra also has her own song "Light of Two Wings" which is dedicated to Levi. She has a crush on him and tries to reveal her true feelings. If that doesn't tell you something then I don't know what will. This is one of the very few ships that could have been official.

Why do people hate this ship so much?! In all honesty, this and Eren X Historia are the only ones that actually had a chance of becoming canon.

6 Ymir x Krista

But they're basically canon anyway ; )

I love how Ymir is overprotective over Historia. They would be extremly cute together and I think it would be canon when Ymir would still be with them

They do look cute together and they might like eachother I don't know

I actually think this may be my favorite ship. It's just so CUTE!

7 Armin x Eren

Eremin is my OTP and the way Armin look at Eren is-- please if someone can look at me like that I'll be the happier girl in the world.

It's so underrated! Read 101 reasons why Eremin is canon on Wattpad. They're so cute together and are almost canon. It's sad that this ship doesn't get enough attention because everyone ships Ereri instead, even though Eren and Levi have barely any chemistry whereas Eren and Armin have loads of chemistry, and Ereri is pedophilia too. This ship needs more love, it's adorable.

Go read 100 reasons to ship eremin on tumblr. You will convert I swear.

Armin and Eren have a connection that I don't see between anyone else in the show. Not only have they known each other for years, but they are bonded closely because of the dream they share to go outside the wall and explore the ocean. That has always been THEIR dream, right from the start. They have amazing chemistry and they would do anything to protect each other. This ship should be canon and they are my OTP for life

8 Erwin x Levi

Can't you see their chemistry? And their trust in each other? And their personalities suit each other so badly

Yes, they were not in a relationship and I also think they would never get in one- to be realistic. I also think they never really had that kind of romantic feelings for themselves. But what they had was trust, loyalty and soulmate potential. you can't change my mind.

It makes me sad that everyone that Levi loved died, First his mother Kuchel, then his friend Isabel and Farlan, then his whole squad and now this, the only person Levi put his most trust in, Erwin died.

Kind of strange, if you remember how they started off. But I think they're growing on each other. Well, until Erwin had a rock thrown into his kidney, but y'know.

9 Sasha x Connie

The only ship that has NO haters...

I's just plain flat out adorable. I knew it ever since they were messing around during the self-defense exercise.

In episode 4 there's a scene where connie and sasha practice their titan fighting while fooling around with it, it's super cute and funny x3

They‘re just meant for each other. I think they would always have competitions with each other but would still cuddle, kiss and do all that couple stuff

10 Reiner x Bertholdt

Reiner practically admitted he gay for Bertholdt know Bertholdt just has to let go of Annie

I mean...I can't really tell if Reiner is actually jealous of the love Bertholt has for Annie, but it sure does feel like it most of the story.

Not to spoil anything for the manganese but Reiner basically emitted that he's gay and he obviously cares more about Bert then about his own life so they're half cannon? Anyways, I ship it

Reiner admitted he's gay, and his feelings for Bertholdt are definitely not just close friends. He obviously is pretending 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 also has feelings for him. He loves to be protected by Reiner, and is very dependent on him.

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

The Contenders

11 Armin x Annie

MANGA SPOILERS. Since we found out that Armin has been talking to Annie in her stasis, this ship blossomed. Hitch could tell that Armin has heart eyes for her, I'm just waiting for them to have some interaction in the next few chapters.

Platonic or romantic, you can't deny these two share a bond with each other before Annie crystalized herself. Sure, Eren might have made her smile but I'm pretty sure being told she's a good person meant a lot more to her. As well as Armin being told that even though he's weak, he has guts, meant something to him as well since he has low self-esteem. "ArMin NevEr CaRed ABout AnNie" Really? Then why did he really want to be wrong for once and wait an entire month to reveal her identity? Annie on the other hand, had the chance to kill him on different occsasions but never did it, she spared him. Also, she cares about what he thinks of her, she knew that Armin was lying to her about helping Eren escape and went anyways cause she still wanted to be that good person for him.

In OVA 2, when Armin was talking about how weak he was after Jean asked him to go steal meat, you can pause and see that Annie had a great expression and was deeply sad for him. Being partners in training probably had them grow a great caring for each other.

I love it how Annie has a soft spot for him! Plus, Armin was basically the only one who nice to her. For me, this is the CUTEST ship ever.

12 Mikasa x Jean

"This is a very good pairing and I think they should become a couple at the end of manga. Eren mikasa doesn't work because mikasa treats eren like a little brother. Caring, protecting and loving her brother. On the other hand Jean's feeling of jealous (towards eren), admiration, protecting, supporting her makes him a good partner"

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 and he 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. This is an excellent pairing. (Eren as the body and krista as the blood). (Sorry for my english).

I think, she's better with Jean. Because, Jean will be something new and different, giving new colors and hope, which is certainly different from what she has been getting from Eren. She and Eren are impossible to be a couple, because of Isayama's confirmation, and... all the while I've seen Mikasa treating Eren like she is his mother, and Eren also considers her as a mother.Caring, loving, and protective (though Eren sometimes gets annoyed that Mikasa is a bit protective of him). In other hand, Jean is jealous because Eren's closeness with Mikasa. I think, he deserves Mikasa. And I'm sure he'll be a good lover to Mikasa,and, he'll love her the way Eren loves her, but with different ways and levels.

Mikasa x Eren is practically incest. Mikasa x Levi is literally incest. This is the only good Mikasa pairing in my opinion

13 Mikasa x Sasha

Mikasa stuffed a piece of bread in her mouth and Sasha looked so happy...

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

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

So cute and possibly Canon

14 Armin x Krista

Armin x Krista is the best ship ever. I mean like Armin has shown quite interests in Krista. In episode 18 of season 1, Armin states 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 to save Eren, Armin advices Krista not to go and stay within the walls THIS IS SO...UHHH!

No. 4 is that... after the four months 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...

They look like twins

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

Blondies unite

15 Eren Jaeger x Annie Leonhardt

This is my only ship on attack on titan and it's my dream for it to come true anyways Mikasa and Eren is Overrated and its extremely clear he likes her as a sister

I think they would make a perfect couple because if you seen season 2 Annie and eren have a lot in common

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 to 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 and son. Remember, Eren was one of those people who had an interest in martial arts Annie, and asked her to teach her, also one of the few who made her smile. In fact, the person whom Eren thinks of mother (Mikasa), seems to believe them, even once asked Annie where he was (at the time of Battle of Trost arc). When Eren knows that Annie is a female Titan suspect, he can not even afford to transform, he even feels shaken, and, he can not even hate her, unlike when he knows that Reiner and Bertholdt are also traitors like Annie, even those who are close and he thinks mother (Mikasa) asks if he has any special feelings for her, and Eren has never answered her question until now. However, when he fights with ...more

Come on Manga readers, I don't ship it, but soon, the next chapter will come out. Let's just pray we will get more news from Annie after chapter 86.

16 Mikasa x Levi

They work really well together and this relationship has a chance to go through one of those beautiful hate to love transitions. It's not incest either which is a big bonus as in the guidebook it said that they could only be 3rd cousins at the closest. Third cousins isn't considered related. And if you look in the manga and guidebook, it's obvious that Levi does care for her. Mikasa's imitation of Levi's combat techniques is cute too. I don't know, I just think this relationship could work really well.

Thank you so much for saying this! I've been waiting for someone to say that they aren't related (which I've known for quite a bit), so thank you once again!

This ship is just perfect: I love how their relation evolved from hate to respect, we know that Levi worries about Mikasa. They have a similar past with strange childhood and they are the two best soldiers. I just want to see them together!

They are mirrors, shadows, reflections of each other. Being the best soldiers, only they themselves understand each other's vulnerabilities, reveal their scars and crash their burdens on each other because only they could handle it. None could compete against them. I love both of them and I wish that they can walk the road together.

I never really understood polar opposites like Eren x Levi. Mikasa and Levi work well in combat and can agree on most things. They would be an amazing couple.

17 Petra x Oluo

It's canon sorry Levi x Petra shippers...

I prefer this one WAY more than Petra x Levi. You can see much more going on between them, and it's much more possible to me. Petra would of course notice the amount of effort Oluo is putting in for her.

They got each other in heaven don't they? This ship makes me feel sad and gets to the feels

I LOVE this ship why did they have to die!

18 Jean x Armin

Admit it, this ship will NEVER be canon, but it's still a nice thought. They're pretty compatible.

Marco is dead. Read the manga, Armin is Jean's new boo. Hop on board or get left behind lmao.

I still like Jean and Marco but, he's sort of dead. And I think Armin could be the kind of person to help Jean through that kind of problem.

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.

19 Levi x Windex

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.

Guys, this ship is cannon. Windex is the only one who can make Levi truly happy.

K levi LOVES windex he chooses that over everything else so that kinda makes sense but they are both alike u know why? THEY LOVE CLEANING

Come on guys.. This is like the #1 ship of the whole fandom.

20 Sasha x Potato

Sasha loved food and she eats potatoes a lot so I ship them she loves the potatoe

Must be canon

Potato is best boy

I was going to try and add this but I see my Potato Family has already been here

21 Bertholdt x Annie

I only like this ship for Bertholdt's hapless crush, it gives his character a bit of depth. But I suppose it's also helping Annie and Armin's relationship develop in the manga (subconscious influence and all)

I's obvious through the show that Bertholt expresses feelings for Annie, but I just happened to find it adorable.

I am honestly in a Titan sized pickle I don't no who I ship more Armin x Annie or bertholdt x Annie I love both so much!

To be honest I am a Armin x Annie shipper, but I did have a split second of love thoughts between Bertholdt and Annie, but there are way more clues of Armin x Annie.

22 Eren x Historia

I think they may have some bond or something after the incident with Historias father. They would be super cute together

After what transpired in the Uprising Arc, between things like Eren and Historia's first heart-to-heart talk (where the first person she opens up to is Eren after she feels abandoned by Ymir and loses her Krista Lenz facade, and Eren says he prefers her real self), their tragic time together in the cave (where Eren even breaks down like never before and finally gives up, and Historia becomes stronger than ever and also becomes a major help in pulling Eren out of that hell hole and putting him back together), and Eren getting Historia to blush and smile with a compliment (plus her comical mad reaction and blushing harder in response to him teasing her right after), this seems to be a rather underrated ship at least from my experience, and in my honest opinion, it's even comparable to Eren x Mikasa in terms of logic and likelihood to become endgame. In fact, even though I do still like Eren x Mikasa too, I, personally, actually like Eren x Historia just a bit more at this point.

Crazy to see it ranked so low considering it's the most likely Eren ship right now

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

23 Mikasa x Annie


One of the best duo in the world!

I don't know I think that would be interesting

It's cute and I think their made for each other

24 Armin x Christa

They haven't really had much interactions but they're similar in the way that they are both short and sweet and blonde. They are the little cinnamon rolls in this show to be honest

2 blonds in my bed

25 Hanji x Titan

Hanji loves titans and she like titans more that the human being but she will like to be with them more to do thing such as experiments etc.

More specifically, Hanji x Bean.

Hange x bean x sonny: a love story
