The Top Ten

1 Pastor Nick Pastor Nick

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

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

A character I hate so much that I put him on my Top 10 Anime Characters That Deserve to Be Hated the Most list. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

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.

This is a lie if you ask me, Eren cares for his friends and he has a personality! If you actually pay attention to this show, you will know that Eren is a great character! He's not overpowered. He wants to kill all the titans because they killed his mother, so its normal for him to want to kill them!

Many fans hate him because he's annoying and whiny, and sometimes always said he wanted to kill himself, or because he was too rude to Mikasa. Yes, his attitude is annoying, but, don't forget. He still cares, friendly, and has many friends besides Armin and Mikasa. In fact, he desperately wants to save them all, including the Eldians from the threat of Titan and will fight the real enemy. And about his attitude to Mikasa, in fact he still cares and loves her, but with different levels. He realized he's a man, who should protect a woman, as his mother had said. And he's also mad that Mikasa is always protective and always wants to be close to him, so he does. - nyaanya0910

It's understandable as to why all of you would hate him. But seriously put yourself in his shoes people. This is the Snk universe we're talking about. Eren lost his mother at a very young age and from that day on he wanted nothing but to eliminate all the Titans and set humanity free from the chains binding it. He also had a dream to explore the outside world with his best and only childhood friend, Armin. Then again he's totally hotheaded but that's what makes his personality realistic. Likes Hannes had said Eren had never win a single fight but he has never learnt to give up either. I've watched SAO but I like Eren more than Krito. I don't give a damn care if you hate me for saying this rant aloud. - Haterssuck

Minna, kill me! PLEASE!
What an annoying idiot.

3 Historia Reiss

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.

Maybe she is Mary Sue but she has gotten much more character development than anyone else. She was playing nice because she wanted to be liked and accepted. If you were despised by your own parents and people around then you would probably feel the same - you would like to be accepted. Later - thanks to Ymir and Eren - she shown her real self. She was a brave girl who told Eren to fight and scolded him when was needed. She wasn't like Mikasa who - instead of fighting - decided to give up and confess to Eren. Historia was fighting for her freedom and ordered Eren to fight as well. Historia isn't bratty or selfish - she is a smart, brave and sensitive girl who can understand pain of others.

I don't like how her personality seemed to change as soon as they found out she was Historia. She shouldn't've needed to put on a false personality even after she changed her name. She became all creepy and bratty and seemingly self-centred.

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!

All she does is shout eren & honestly have no personality

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.

If she ever gets out of her crystallized state, I hope she realizes that what she felt was right was actually wrong! That would be the only redemption for her character!

Not a bad character. Better than the main ones lol

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!

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

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

Every time I see her I just want to strangle her for being so annoying!

I dunno man she just freaks me out

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

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

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

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

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!

10 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.

She's mostly used for just comic relief and can be really useful if only the anime series gave her more screen time. Hopefully she gets more screen time in Season 2 and becomes more important.

Bland food machine, should've died early

The Contenders

11 Hanji Zoe

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.

Hey! What's Hanji doing on this list?! - Haterssuck

12 Petra Ral Petra Ral Petra Ral was a hand-picked soldier of the Survey Corps by Levi Ackerman placed in the Special Operations Squad.

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'..?

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.

I hate Petra, she deserves to be number one. People bash the anti-Petra Ral group just by saying "Petra is kind and sweet" I mean, what the heck?! Why only like a character for being kind and sweet?! Plus, her personality is so plain. Also the way she acts around Levi, the sweet 'ol "innocents". It was her own fault the she died. Please! I didn't feel a tiny bit of pity for Petra when she died.

I honestly hate Petra with a burning passion of 1,000 burning suns.
She is not a nice girl if she treats Oluo like crap just because Levi was his inspiration and maybe a role model and Petra will discourage anyone who wants to be like Levi and become a hero.
Petra definitely is a Mary Sue since her skills we're never explained unlike Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader whose skills were explained in 3 movies.
Her character is poorly developed and not to mention doesn't have enough realism to be an interesting character to fans who have feet on the ground and fodder perverts but her over-obsessive fans who praise like a goddess. And the only flaw I've seen in her so far is her sick fetish towards Levi making a totally boring character.
I know she admires Levi but there's a THIN line between that and discouraging people from becoming a hero like Levi to the point that it severely clouds her judgement.

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..

People say he's overpowered... But someone must be the Humanity's Strongest. It's good, because he isn't "super extra nice macho cute romantic cinnamon roll", and his strength isn't strength... at all. He is so strong, because of his unusual way of fighting (spinning and stuff), and speed, not muscles. And don't forget, fighting is only thing he's really good at (maybe except cleaning), so he's not overpowered, he's only strong person. Also, he's EXPRESSIONLESS, not EMOTIONLESS, and this is because of many traumatic things that have happened in his life.

Sorry he's just too damn overrated characters like Erwin,Hanji,Mike and Dita Ness ( THE VETERANS) needs more love he's not the only important veteran in the scouts there's 5 of them Erwin the commander,Mike section commander,Hanji section commander,Dita Ness section commander and Of course levi the captian everyone is equal he ain't perfect at all! Mike is humanity's second strongest and his skills are only second to levi so mike was humanity's strongest before levi joined the scouts and I would say Mike is a true gentleman because he knows how to motivate others and how he gives chances to people and let them go first listen Hajime isayama proved that mike is older then Erwin do why is Erwin the Commander then? Hajime isayama also proved that Erwin is not really capable of using the ODM gear, how is fourth in the hand to hand combat
Even hanji is stronger then him,ness is truly skilled on ground floor combat so then why is Erwin the commander who's not even that capable? Mike gave ...more

Who was this chick again?

So damn annoying she acts like a boss and a veteran when she's not any of them!
Enough! Stop adding her to the vets and people don't ship her with mike anymore so stop all this stupid fanarts take them down it's so disgusting and pathetic!

Yep she deserves to be here

Just wanted to make things more clear
-she's a five year member not a veteran the only veterans are Erwin,Levi,Hanji,Mike and Ness
-she's not 5'8 she's 5'7.5 172cm is not 5'8 it's 5'7 and a half only 173cm is exactly 5'8
-she's not a badass just because u kill titans it's doesn't make you a badass thank you very much!
-She's not tall 5'7 is in the average so nope!
-she's not hot at all she's hella ugly. We did a game in our attack on titan fan group to vote the least hottest female in attack on titan out. The first one out was Ymir and the second one out was Nanaba so people don't see her hot they see her as an ugly bitch. (by the way the one who one was Mikasa)
-She's not a cool character she was poorly developed! And hajime isayama proven that he named her nanaba because her hair looks like bananas so hajime isayama did'nt put any thoughts into her character he just did it because of her hair
-she's so damn underrated people even forget her name! shes a side ...more

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.

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!

The person who put this here obviously has never read the manga, OR doesn't understand character development.

If he wants to be a strategist then join another team that fits his skills appropriately. Like the wall repairing team. The guy just can't fight, and it's painful watching him do nothing in the face of death.

He's so annoying!

I glad he died

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 agree with Petra! He tounge should bleed!

18 Jean Kirschstein Jean Kirschstein

To him being here, I say neigh.

Best character in my opinion he had the best character development.

The person who puts him on this list is really stupid. To me, yes, he's annoying, and some hate him because he has a crush on Mikasa and is considered to be bothering Eren and Mikasa relationship, but, don't forget, there are advantages that make it superior and should not be on this list. And I think, he deserve Mikasa. And, this character in my opinion includes characters that have the best character development. Initially, yes he only cares about himself, but, Marco's death gives him a very strong impact. He joins Survey Corps, lives to save his comrades and mankind, and to me that's good. - nyaanya0910

I mean, I don't hate him, but he killed Marco so...

Hate this guy, no matter what orders you are given, mass murder can never be forgiven.

Reiner is the armored Titan so what is his damn reason to break wall Maria

I really hated him first when I knewvrhat he is the armortitan. but if you read the manga and know his story and why he became a warrior maybe you will change your opinion. I'm not saying that I like him or something

20 Gabi

Gabi Braun is an insufferable psycho brat. She is easily worse than all of RBA combined. She needs to die.

Personally, I dislike her character. She’s very gloaty and I don’t think her cause is justified. For example, people hate on Eren for being too annoying and angry all the time, claiming he’s gonna kill all the titans, but he just wants to avenge his mother. Gabi, on the other hand, just does it because she can. No one is forcing her to do it, she chose to become a warrior. In the latest chapter, when she and Falco are talking to the girl who Sasha had rescued in the past, she just keeps up making excuses why the Eldians are bad people and why they the Paradisians are the good guys. I dunno it just really pissed me off. Plus, this is a personal reason but that stupid kid *Spoiler*... killed Sasha. I know a lot of people disliked Sasha, but she was one of my favorite characters, and it sucked for me when she died. Yes, I understand Gabi shot her because Sasha had killed one of her friends (if I’m not mistaken? ) but I just my hate for her just grew when she killed her. But ...more

21 Krista Lenz/Historia Reiss

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

22 Ymir

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.

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

Bitchy and insulting to everyone. Protective of Historia so much that I wish Historia would stand up to herself and not get cared too much by Ymir. Just because you were betrayed by the people who once idolized you doesn't mean you have to be bitchy to others, who didn't have anything to do with your past.

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

Stop it! He's not heartless okay! READ THE DAMN MANGA!
Just because of his eyebrows it doesn't make him a bad charcter he doesn't really smile because of his past okay what about this if you were him what will you chose your comardes or millions of lives behind the walls think before you judge someone😑

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.

If you're caught up with manga you'll have a good understanding of his character, for better or for worse. I mean, honestly, people are judging him based off of how he is supposed to act for his job. He needs to whip them into shape, which means degradation. However, this is only to weed out the weak. he has to be critical of them because their lives are in his hands. Even based off the little you see of him first season, you can tell he respects the cadets. Unless you've read recent chapters all you see is this one-dimensional side of him. He is a good person with flaws which means he's a realistic character. He didn't make a good commander because honestly, he is too gentle a person for the job.

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.
