As Attack on titan approaches it’s end the stakes have never been higher! We’ve come a long way since Eren made his well known promise to kill all the titans,and it has been quite the journey to say the least.
So now, before things end, we figured it would be a good time to take a look back and remember some of the brave characters who sacrificed everything to allow our heroes to make it this far. This is Attack on Titan’s 10 most heart-wrenching deaths!
Hand picked by Levi to join the Survey scout’s Special Operations squad, Gunther much like the rest of his squad was a real asset to the survey corps. It’s unfortunate we didn’t get to see much of him, but despite that his death made for one of the most shocking moments in the anime!
Levi’s second in command at the time; stoic, dedicated and capable, he along with the rest of his squad are done in by the female titan. Similar to Gunther we really didn’t see his death coming, but then again it’s one of the things that made Attack on Titan so memorable.
I think we will all remember Oruo and his laughable attempts to mimic Levi. Though he seemed quite obnoxious at the time he would become one of the most missed characters the franchise would offer. As expected of any Survey Corps member, he died in the line of duty, doing his part until the very end.
Petra’s death was one of the most heart-breaking in the story. We will never forget the scene between her dad and Levi, in which Levi had to inevitably break the old man’s heart. She reminded us that each scout was a person, with family and people who truly cared about them and not just meat bags sent to the field to be slaughtered.
Oh Ymir, after seeing her struggle so much it was most certainly heart-breaking when her death inevitably came. One can never truly be prepared for the twists and turns in the AOT universe, but in the end she went on her terms and that’s something we think she would be happy about.
Miche’s death was quite dreadful to say the least. A fitting way to let us know the sort of monster Zeke is, I still get chills anytime I remember that scene. It’s a scary thing been in the scouts and Zacharius reminded us why!
So yes he and Reiner did some pretty terrible stuff, but in the end we still understood he was fighting for his homeland. Seeing him go in such a undignified manner was something else, especially at the hands of our heroes, but that is war. It didn’t make it any less painful though.
Seeing such a decorated commander suffer such an inglorious death was truly one of the most heart breaking parts of the manga. Pixis didn’t deserve to die the way he did. It was truly a sad sight.
The lively huntress, no one could have seen it coming. Her death would also go on to have lasting consequences on the rest of the characters. It truly was a tragedy in every sense of the word!
Speaking of tragic, in the end Erwin sacrificed everything, everything! He truly did justice to the title of commander, and that final charge will be etched in the minds of fans, forever
