From powerful Titans to skilled soldiers, these characters have all proven themselves to be forces to be reckoned with in the world of Attack on Titan.

Who is the strongest Character from Attack on Titan?

The strongest character would be Eren Jaeger due to his ability to wield the powers of the Found Titan.

Who is the weakest Character from Attack on Titan?

The weakest character would be Historia Reiss, but politcally she quite strong.

Starting off this list we have our MC Eren Yeager, I have been defending him since season 1 and you bet I’ll still defend him now! Eren has a tragic past with his mother being a victim to the titans and father causing him to become the attack titan by having himself be eaten by his son. Despite this, we get to enjoy the growth and change of a boy filled with wonder of the outside world to a literal war criminal.

In terms of skills, Eren possesses the power of the “Attack Titan,” also known as the “Founding Titan.” This ability allows him to transform into a Titan and gain immense strength and regenerative powers. He can also control other Titans to a certain extent, making him a formidable weapon in the fight against the Titans.

As with other MC type characters, Eren is determined and passionate for his cause to eradicate all titans. Overtime he does change with the things he learns about the world and the reason for the situatin he is in. Her goes from this boy with pure unbridled charm and joy, to a man who has been beaten by the world around him. The beauty that the Mangaka put into writing his personality is one of the most impactful in the anime verse and is till highly praised years after the mangas run.

2. Levi Ackermann

The husbando, clean freak, and sadistic captain of the scouts lands at our number 2 spot. Levi, just like other Ackermanns, is a demon on the battlefield, his angst with Zeke Yeager was one of the most entertaining fights to watch in the series. Thanks to him, we got some of the best animated scenes in the series run!

Levi’s skills are unparalelled, the only other people that have matched him are Kenny Ackermann and Zeke on occasions. His mastery of the vertical maneuver gear and battle tactics was the reason why he’s held in such high regard among the scouts and other branches of the military.

Levi’s personality is also shaped by his tragic past and his strong sense of justice. He has experienced immense loss and suffering due to the Titans, which has fueled his determination to eradicate them and protect humanity. This has also made him wary of forming close emotional connections, as he has seen the devastating effects of loss firsthand.
