The elite force that answers to the King, responsible for maintaining the peace. Their organization is infamously corrupt, and many recruits hope to join in order to take advantage of the safety and comforts it affords. Only the Top 10 graduates from every year are allowed to apply, meaning that the most talented are the soldiers least likely to ever have to face Titans. They are actually divided into two separate organizations -- the regular branch, and the secretive Central 1st Brigade that operates directly out of the Capitol. Though most of the top ten cadets of the 104th Trainee Corps intended to join the [=MPs=] (as they had earned the right to do so), only [[Characters/AttackOnTitanWarriorTrio Annie Leonheart]] ultimately joins, while the rest opted for the Survey Corps[[note]]It's mentioned that Connie Springer, Reiner Braun, Bertolt Hoover, Marco Bott and Jean Kirstein intended to join, while Ymir gave up her 10th spot for Krista Lenz to join, and Mikasa Ackerman refused to join for the sake of Eren Yeager; all of them (including non-top tens Ymir and Armin) joined the Survey Corps except Marco Bott, who perished during the Battle of Trost District. Sasha Braus' branch assignment intentions were not stated in the story, but she ultimately joined the Survey Corps too[[/note]].

* TheOnlyBeliever: The Military Police Brigade is quite corrupt, and even those who aren't openly corrupt mostly just want to use it as a way to live in safety away from the titans. Only Marlo believes in reforming the Military Police into what it's supposed to be.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Appears to be quite proud of Levi, and he [[spoiler: spent his younger days trying to find and protect other members of the Ackerman family - he found Levi after trying to visit his prostitute sister, only to realize she had wasted away and died from an illness. He also seems to have been fond of Uri, Rod's younger brother who advocated hiring Kenny into the MP.]] He also values his personal squad, warning them to stay away from a rampaging [[spoiler:Titan Rod]].

* {{Hypocrite}}: He [[spoiler: criticizes Rod for being manipulative and a shitty example of a father to Historia, but his own record isn't much better, if not worse. Though he did take Levi in and raise him, he was abusive to the point of Levi having "quirks" that remain into his 30s, and flat-out says he didn't really teach Levi anything beyond fighting and killing--usually with knives.]]

%%* RightForTheWrongReasons: He comes to believe that his plan to steal the Coordinate power from the Reiss family was doomed to fail when he overhears Rod telling Historia that only individuals with royal blood can use it to its full potential, the story has shown that this claim has been proven dubious at best; However revelations of chapters 86-88 all but state that [[spoiler: only Eldians can wield the Titan powers, and Kenny being from a different ethnicity (the Ackermans) who are able to resist the Coordinate, wouldn't have been able to become a Titan in the first place]].

** During the Clash of the Titan's arc [[spoiler:after Eren is captured by the Colossal and Armoured Titans]] a bunch of MP's loudly voice how much better they would be at fighting the Titans outside. Levi decides to ask if they would like to join them and [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor the MP's are forcibly enlisted]] into the [[spoiler:Eren saving mission.]] Sure enough, once the operation is underway, [[spoiler:the MP's become basically useless and are more or less used by Erwin as a RedShirtArmy.]]

* LongLostRelative: Kenny mentions in his flashback coming across a distant branch of the Ackerman family in Zhiganshina, which implies a connection to Mikasa.

* DidntSeeThatComing: He thinks that his partner ratted out the 1st Brigade to the Survey Corps. He then lets it all out, only to find out that his partner hadn't said jack shit. Oops!


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: His killing of Pastor Nick is what kickstarts the Survey Corps uprising. He is also goaded into spilling the beans on the plans of the 1st Brigade.

* BoomHeadShot: Their standard tactic seems to be shooting victims in the head, to messy effect.

* EliteMooks: {{Implied|Trope}}. One of the reasons why the top 10 trainees are almost always sent to the interior is presumably so that the Central 1st Brigade can comfortably handpick its members from the lot.



* GunsVsSwords: Played realistically against the Survey Corps. The blades of Levi's squad stand no chance against the pistols of the 1st Brigade and are reduced to being picked off like flies.

Added DiffLines:

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Assuming the others were right about her possible feelings for Marlo, she fits this trope. She tends to act like a self-centered AlphaBitch , but Marlo is an upstanding and honorable guy (if blunt in his opinions).
