The Top Ten

1 Pastor Nick Pastor Nick

He is more loyal to his cause than the dude who created the cause?

Doesn't even care for the lives of the people who follow his religion. I hope he dies in the second season.

I'm so glad that he died. Pfft serves him right. Go away moron. Nobody is in interested in your religious talks in the courtroom. (No offense to any kind of religion) - Haterssuck

A wall respecting idiot who deserves to be the first to die in a horror movie. He's overall ANNOYING!

2 Eren Yeager 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.

People hate Eren for being a whiny arrogant kid who doesn't get over his mother's death like seriously? Why wouldn't they put themselves in his shoes and try to imagine at least once how would they feel if their mother gets eaten by a titan (in the manga she got crushed entirely before getting eaten). I think he's pretty relatable and a protagonist who doesn't always wins fights. I don't get those people hating on Eren, he's just an average person given the weight of the world on his shoulders. He doesn't have to be badass, he doesn't have to be calm and collected.

He is already special, because he was born into this world. - Eleanora

Do I even have to explain why he's annoying. Just watch the anime and you'll understand. It's not that he's just annoying, he's also plainly stupid. Thinks shouting and hitting people is going to solve everything.

To the people defending Eren, he basically beats Armin up and degrades Mikasa for sticking around, and going as far as saying he can't stand to look at her, and he's hated her since childhood, he also left the remaining 104 trainee corps for some people who just told him things he wanted to hear, wow, what a caring protagonist who really appreciates everyone who saved his butt in the past. He went from a tolerable hero to absolute jerk.

A one-note character. There's no complexity to his drive or emotions. To be fair, he does alternate between whining and yelling, so there's at least some variation in his actions. Unless he's whine-yelling. It's unfortunate that the character with the most screentime is also the most annoying.

3 Historia Reiss

Mary Sue through and through. People admiring and supporting her wherever she goes, calls her 'megami/goddess', has royal blood, is kind and sweet, is caring and supportive, is generous and nice, and even becomes a queen. What are her flaws exactly? She gets called a Cattle Farming Goddess lovingly by people in the walls, is respected blah blah blah. She gets developed, yes, but add some flaws to her character so that she actually looks quite likable.

Typical Mary Sue with a dark past, and people hate Eren? - Eleanora

I tolerated her before but now it's season 3 and she's been getting a crap-ton of screen time. It's gotten so bad that I'm considering dropping Attack on Titan for good because I just can't stand this one character. I wouldn't be so pissed off if all the other characters treated her like the annoying nuisance she is but now she's queen and everyone is kissing her ass. It's disgusting.

I don't like Historia since she seems unrealistic as Krista. The way she is always portrayed as an innocent angel by Jean or Ymir make me sick. I prefer flawed characters since they seem more realistic, but is a cartoon. I don't like her attitude and her suicidal intentions so others will think she died an honourable death. The way she hides in her fake Krista personality kills me.

The worst and most boring character in AOT with a stupid name. Comes out of nowhere and now everything revolves around her, wish she would just die already.

4 Mikasa Ackerman 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 more.

So annoying and her obsession with Eren is retarded, she literally cares for no one else and would kill people to get what Eren wants, I bet she doesn't even care about humanity. Honestly, Eren is the main character, he should have more independence and prove himself more which he actually does want but she never takes it into consideration (which is selfish). I would prefer if Eren took care of things himself instead of Mikasa constantly jumping the person who comes into contact with him, even if that means Eren failing, because that's honestly how main characters develop. She's selfish and has no heart, and don't even get me started with what she did to Levi in chapter 83, I'm not even a huge Levi fan (I do like him though), but what she did pissed me off so much, and I know she was trying to save Armin (or maybe because that's what Eren wanted to be honest), but it pissed me off because she didn't even take into consideration that Levi just fought the beast titan and sworns of ...more

Tries to come off as a badass, only to turn out to be a clingy high school girl cardboard cutout who only cares about Eren.

SPOILER: boring, overprotective, annoying, stupid (really she is) and an-understanding... just read the manga! She has NO heart... she admitted it near "somebody" manga chapter (spoiler: and she almost killed two of my favorite characters, reiner and bertl) I. HOPE. SHE. DIES!

There's no justifiable reason to hate on Mikasa. It's her life, and her decisions to whom to attach to, and whom to not. Personally, I think her attachment to Eren gives her more character and makes her more human, than just being a titan killing machine present there to be silent all the time. She has got a pretty well reason to be overprotective of Eren, she is standing there all entirely because of Eren anyways. Mikasa is a total badass, and a person that has control on her emotions, well one exception is when Eren or Armin's life is in danger.
She is a very balanced character, and that's why I like her. She isn't a Mary Sue, she isn't a very bad character either. She is a badass character with visible flaws, and I like that quality of hers. - Eleanora

5 Annie Leonhardt

"Traitor because she has daddy issues"? More like traitor due to a life obligation to do her job with absolutely no choice in the matter. She was raised for it and had no other option. She simply did her job.

Annie is an amazing character and was doing what she felt was right.

She looked a bit too happy when spinning a soldier with the wires from their 3DMG gear to death...She is evil. I really hope she’s one of those characters that die off screen/panel.

Not a bad character. Better than the main ones lol

6 Hitch Dreyse Hitch Dreyse Hitch Dreyse 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 looks like pitou

Every time I see her, I want to throw an angry cat at her face and let her get scratched to oblivion, because face it, she should definitely be forgotten and left for oblivion. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I dunno man she just freaks me out

She just sucks. I don't even know what importance she has to the plot anyways. Her friend Marlo is better, though. At least he isn't lazy like her and he actually wants to do something about the Military Police. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The most cowardly person in the series. - SelfDestruct

I wish he would get eaten

This bastard is 7th? WHY IS ANNIE 1st? I am not shipping Annie, nor she is my favourite, but this...

Why did he join the military if he was afraid to die? More so after that he kept complaining about his dangerous job. THIS MAKES NO SENSE!

8 Alma Reiss

She was cold and cruel to her daughter. It was very satisfying to see her die in the manga.

Seriously, I don't get how she's below people like Eren and Historia

Worst mother. Glad that she died. If I were Historia, I would've stabbed her from the back in her stomach. - Haterssuck

I'm glad she died! She treated her daughter terribly. She never deserved to be a mother! I'm glad she died

9 Kitz Weilman

This is an insecure idiot captain. I wish that a Titan would just...come out of nowhere and kill him already dammit! He has NO respect or care for anyone else, clearly!

Anyone dumb enough to order the execution of what in reality would be humanity's best chance at survival most definitely deserves a high spot on this list.

Why is he not at least in the top 5? He's a coward who refused to acknowledge Eren was innocent!

He's just a coward. He could've died instead. Such an idiot Garrison officer.

10 Hanji Zoe

She's so adorable and badass! Best of all, her personality changes completely the more you dive into the anime. Where she starts off hyperactive and bubbly, she eventually becomes more calm, level-headed and aware that human lives are more important than the lives of Titans. Heck, she even has a scary side to her. When she tortures people, she doesn't hold back. And she doesn't even do it in her bubbly personality. No, she becomes darker and has a death glare at you when torturing you. This is why I love her. She shouldn't be in this list. - Daviddv0601

I absolutely love Hanji, and her obsession with studying titans is great, it gives her a personality. Her studies might actually help defeating the titans. I don't get it why people would hate her...

At least she doesn't go around killing Titans all the time & tries to show affection towards them. I don't see her being bad.

Hanji is awesome. She's very entertaining, and I think it's great( and probably more realistic) that she isn't afraid of Titans. She's probably my favorite character in the show.

The Contenders

11 Sasha Braus

Sasha's funny so I think that counts for something so ease up on her cause she's pretty cool too she's shouldn't be on this list really

She should be nowhere near this list. She's strong, and can actually do something without gear. Funny as well.

Why Sasha? - Eleanora

Bland food machine, should've died early

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

I hate Petra. She's selfish and she wants Eren to trust her, but not trust him. I get bashed on for hating Petra and people say "why would you hate her? She's kind and so sweet"! Now, why would you treat a character like a goddess for just being 'Kind and sweet'..?

So annoying

TF is Hanji and Sasha's rank higher than HERS? She so damn overrated, like she appeared in the anime for a couple of episodes and gets so much attention? LIKE what!?

I hate Petra. She's so annoying and always wants people to trust her, even she doesn't trust them. And people bash Anti-Petra supporters by saying the same thing all over again. It's always the same thing: "How can you possibly hate her?! She's so kind and sweet! ". It's just the same thing all over again.

Why connie he is my favorite character what did he do?

He is a fun character, not the best, but definitely not the worst. I wish he would be more developed though...

I LOVE connie, why is he even on here? - AnimeLister123

If it weren't for sasha or attack on junior high, I wouldn't like connie, but he is awesome

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

Sigh. Yet another great character who doesn't deserve to be on this list. Levi is one of the best characters in the show, if not THE best he's my personal favorite, though, so maybe that makes me bias .

Let's clear something up right now. Levi is NOT emotionless. He is, however, EXPRESSIONLESS. There's a difference. Some people think he doesn't care about his comrades, and that's why he didn't cry when his squad died, but just because he doesn't collapse into a heap of tears and emotions every times a comrade dies doesn't mean he's not hurting inside. If he did that, he would've gone crazy ages ago.

And when you think about it, Levi needs to stay strong for those around him. His alias is 'Humanity's Strongest Soldier.' And Humanity's Strongest should be, well, strong. If people saw someone like him crying and breaking down, they would start to lose hope. So he manages to stay calm and collected FOR THEM.

Strength isn't just physical. It's emotional too. And Levi ...more

People who put him in THIS place is STUPID. First, without Levi, can Eren lives till now. He saved him 3 times! He also saved Mikasa, and in addition, he, together with Mikasa and Eren might be the ONE WHO DEFEAT the titans. Yeah, you can curse him,...but if you are Eren' s fans, think about it. If Levi doesn't exist, than Eren will die long time ago...

Secondly, he ISN"T COLD HEARTED AS PEOPLE THINK. Look at his face when he saw his comrades die. He can't cry like a baby, or just sit there and shout. He is humanity's strongest! Also, he killed that Titans right away. Say as you like, being emotionless to people's death without showing their weakness and simply killed Titans are much better than sit there with 2 eyes open, waiting for death..

The fandom just ruined levied for me
Hyenas everywhere.

Unlike Mikasa Ackerman, he has very valid reasons for being so overpowered. He's actually a great character and shouldn't be on this list. Otherwise if he must, he should be very VERY low. - Daviddv0601

16 Armin Arlert 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 more.

Another character who should NOT be on this list. He does seem like a coward at first, but he also grows braver and stronger as time goes on. And he's a great strategist.

I wonder if it's because of his awful English voice actor. I personally love Armin the most out of the Shinganshina Trio. He was terrified in his first battle against the Titans, even feeling like dying instead of being eaten alive. However, he eventually becomes more brave, smart and an excellent soldier that could eventually hold his own. While Eren became more a more ruthless and loathsome villain, Armin started to become the series' TRUE main protagonist.

Armin really shouldn't be on this list. Unlike Mikasa, he's had proper character development and unlike Eren, he's a likable character. - Daviddv0601

Armin should definitely not be on this list, there's really nothing to hate about him. If it weren't for him, lots of people could have been eaten. I mean, think about it, he's really a strategist. He may not be strong, but his intelligence makes up for it. Don't even tell me he's annoying, he's been through a lot, and so has everyone else there. He's my personal favorite, and I'm not saying you have to agree, but I'm saying you shouldn't hate on such an ADORABLE character!

A sue, a sue, a sue.

He's so annoying!

I don't really like Ouro, but you have to think about how he still felt determined to avenge Gunther, Petra, and Eld. While flawed, he's a fairly good character.

I glad he died

I agree with Petra! He tounge should bleed!

21 Krista Lenz/Historia Reiss

What a Mary Sue. It gets annoying how now that she's queen, everyone is obsessed with her. People worship her for her "beauty and kindness" and all that. It's disgusting.

Just an all around Mary Sue. We get it. You are gorgeous, pretty, and everyone likes you and is obsessed with you.

22 Ymir

Stupidest character ever. Could've easily saved so many lives by simply telling those within the walls about Marley and using her titan to get back at the people who made her life terrible. Instead she becomes a street rat and gives the Jaw titan back to Marley. Seriously pathetic.

She's so annoying. Just keeps stalking Krista all day. I'm glad she died.

She's a lier to everyone and didn't seem to care about historia and kept it as a secret even though ymir likes

This is the only character besides pastor Nick that I with a burning passion hate.

23 Erwin Smith 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 look up to a lot of anime characters, and Erwin Smith is one of them. He was only put here for a stupid reason related to his eyebrows. What?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

First of all I would just like to say is that don't a character by their looks and personality. Judge them by their behaviour and the decisions they take. Erwin pretty much is an important character in the show and he has a very good point as to why he does this. And oh, don't get me started on how he killed Isabel and Farlan. Isabel and Farlan died because of Levi's idiocy. It was Levi who had left them in the mercy of the Titans. Had he not abandoned his friends, then they would have been alive today. "Those who break the rules are scum but those who abandon their comrades are worse than scum." I'm of course not calling Levi scum but seriously please read the ACWNR manga and then blame whose fault it is. And what's wrong with his eyebrows? Please leave his eyebrows alone. They are nothing compared to Rock Lee or Gai-sensei's from Naruto. - Haterssuck


He's on this lost... because of his eyebrows? Wow, that's fair. - TwilightKitsune

I don't like how he shouts at everyone and puts them down, but I guess that's just his job. Despite constantly beating up on the 104th, he also seems to genuinely care about them. Or is that just me wanting to think the best of everyone?

I hate this guy to the heart - Endergirl

Well he was a bad commander to begin with. Just broke into tears in front of the mother of one of his dead soldiers. No wonder Erwin replaced him as commander.

At first, I hated him, but I realized that he had a hard past, so I kind of respect the guy now. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

25 Jean Kirschtein

Why is Jean on here? In response to the other comment on here, I'd like to point out that Jean's childish crush on MIKASA ("midasl"? ) was short lived and he respects her and has never tried to steal her away from Eren. He's the most human character and his development is one of the best in the series. He's been thrown into situations he never expected to be in and instead of faltering, he did everything he can and grew out of his selfishness. And he's still developing and I don't see him stopping anytime soon.

He is most like me in real life

Someone who puts him in this list are stupid. yes, many people hates him because he's annoying, childish, and sometimes being blunt, and because he has a crush on Mikasa, also considered him as one who trying to steal her from Eren. Enough, I'll give you this fact: He may have a crush on Mikasa, but he's not too much about it, too, and thanks to him, Mikasa is saved. He saves her once when she tried to saves Eren from Bertholdt, but failed and caught by Titan. C'mon, it's not that so bad, he's even also character who fits together with Mikasa, and he's the better man who deserves Mikasa more than Eren. And, indeed he's been so rude with her mom, but he's still loves her mom, and he realize that he's been too dependent and he want to dependent, so he does. His attitude to his mother almost resembled Eren's attitude to Mikasa. He is to me also a character who has the best character development, because he gets a big impact after Marco's death, even beyond Eren or Mikasa. - nyaanya0910

Stupid character that tried to steal midasl from eren and pointless wannabe.

26 Bertholdt Hoover
