Attack on Titan: Top 10 Fan-Favorite Characters

Attack On Titan is undoubtedly one of the most epic anime ever created. I speak for all AOT fans when I say that we can’t wait for the last part of the final season to air, and we are ultra-hyped. So, it comes as no surprise that Attack on Titan, which is considered by many the best anime, comes with some of the best anime characters as well.

Unsure in what order to watch Attack on Titan? Check out our guide!

Mikasa, Eren, and Armin are my favorite trio by far. I prefer them even over other popular trios we see in anime like Jujutsu Kaisen or Naruto. That is because they perfectly balance each other out. 

I used the MyAnimeList database to determine the most popular Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) characters. 

Some interesting facts about this Attack on Titan popularity list:

  • Armin is unfortunately not even nearly as popular as Mikasa and Eren,
  • only one antagonist ended up in the top ten,
  • the main character is not the most popular character of Attack on Titan.
the ideal waifu for me 😉

Here is a list of the best Attack on Titan characters (according to MAL)!
