* JapanesePronouns: "Ware", for extra CommandingCoolness. He uses "Ore" in private with Mike and Levi.

* DistractedFromDeath: [[spoiler: Dies quietly while what's left of the Survey Corps watches Bertolt get his KarmicDeath, eaten alive by Titan Armin, and it isn't simply being SwallowedWhole either. Titan Armin chews him up, and Bertolt dies screaming for help that will never come.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SerialEscalation: [[spoiler: With the ban on technology lifted, the Corps have spent the last 4 years beefing up their armaments in preparation for the war against Marley. They've improved upon The Central Frist Brigade's anti-personal gear so it can now fire multiple rounds without needing to reload, and can also be equipped with Thunder Spears for striking hard targets (such as Titans... or gun emplacements). Their uniforms have also been redesigned to be more flight efficient, and those bulky gas tanks are now on their backs instead the hips, leaving more room for blades/ammunition.]]

* FaceDeathWithDignity: She tries to do this, continuing to write in her notebook even while there's a Titan looming over her. Even when she has a FreakOut and attempts to run for her life, she ''still'' keeps writing in the thing when it catches her and she's moments from being eaten.

* BadassNormal: Capable of downing multiple Titans alone and [[spoiler:utterly dominating the Central Military Police, themselves considered as a BadassArmy,]], he definitely lives up to his reputation as humanity's strongest soldier. The character databook has his combat skills at [[UpToEleven 11]] [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale out of 10]]. And he can hold his own against [[EliteMook Titan Shifters]].

* ChildrenForcedToKill: Possibly inevitable for an orphan living [[WretchedHive in an underground city]], but after [[spoiler: Kenny took him in he taught him how to fight ''dirty'', and had him engage in plenty of knife fights with random thugs to test him]].



* ImplacableMan: As Zeke discovered in Chapter 83 when [[spoiler: he (after being defeated by Levi and escaping thanks to the Mule Titan) and the Mule Titan drop down from the Wall and start hauling ass. They don't make it far before getting into a standoff with Eren as they try to rescue the incapacitated Bertolt, which allows the reason for their flight enough time to catch-up. ''Levi'' appears at the top of the Wall, ''drenched'' in steaming Titan blood, apparently having slaughtered the rest of Zeke's Titan hoard while giving chase. Zeke decides it's time to get the hell out of there.]]

* InexplicablyAwesome: We don't really know ''why'' Levi is such a hardcore, bullet-dodging, Titan-eviscerating death machine, we just sort of know he ''is''. [[spoiler: His recently revealed last name, confirmed past as a notorious street thug, implied connection to [[TheAce Mikasa]], ambiguous age, and apparent training under legendary serial killer 'Kenny the Ripper' all just adds to the sentiment.]]
** It's later revealed that Levi is a member of the [[spoiler: Ackerman family, a group of people with phenomenal, almost inhuman combat skills that are unlocked after experiencing a stressful or traumatic event. Not only that, they're immune to the brainwashing that the rest of the populace is susceptible to.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Levi's aware that there's more ways to get things done than violence and intimidation, he just doesn't know any other way due to his vicious upbringing as a street thug.

* DeathEqualsRedemption: [[spoiler: An anti-heroic rather than villainous version of the trope. After realizing that he was sending his soldiers to their deaths not for humanity but for his own selfish dreams, he ultimately decides to give up his ambitions and pay his soldiers back by joining them in their suicidal charge against the Beast Titan. While Levi had the opportunity to revive him with the titan serum, he remembered this final wish of his and decided to let him rest alongside his fallen troops.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A very well done one at that. When the Female Titan called Titans to come and eat her, he was [[BrokenSmile grinning like a madman.]] Levi asks him why the hell he's smiling. He later gives a more noticeable smile when he find out that [[spoiler: all titans were humans at one point or another]], something that Levi once again call him out on. Turns out that [[spoiler: he's smiling because it proved that his father was correct. We don't even find out who his father is, or what he did until Chapter 55.]]

* HeelRealization: He gradually comes to the realization that his ruthless decisions weren't necessarily for humanity's good, but out of a subconscious desire to fulfill his dream of finding the answer to the question he asked of his father- [[spoiler: whether humans lived outside the walls]].

* NotSoAboveItAll: [[spoiler: And it's a big heart-warmer too. In Chapter 72, the Survey Corps encounter something they've never seen before: the entire town of Trost cheering them on as they prepare to move out. After watching the younger corps members (such as Connie, Sasha, and even ''Jean'') get caught up in the moment and cheer back, Erwin suddenly smiles (not his usual creepy smile for once, but a genuine grin) then gives out a good-old-fashioned {{HotBlooded}} Roar.]]

* TakeUpMySword: [[spoiler: In chapter 84, he specifically refuses the syringe of Titan serum, despite Levi, Hange, and a few others restraining Eren and Mikasa so that Levi could give it to him instead of to Armin. Because of this action, Levi winds up giving this to Armin instead.]]

** During the Battle to reclaim Wall Maria Erwin specifically orders Levi to take down the Beast Titan saying he's the only soldier who can possibly do it. [[spoiler: He accomplishes this goal by using the surrounding Titans on the right hand side of Zeke as perches, killing said Titans along the way, and [[CurbStompBattle curb stomping]] the Beast Titan with barely any effort. Even when Zeke runs away on The Mule Titan and calls the remainder of his Vanguard to attack Levi the latter massacres all of the remaining Titans [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome off-screen]] despite having lost the element of surprise, being stuck on the ground with no areas to grapple to and being severely outnumbered]].

** [[spoiler: He also pretty much solidifies his claim to the title when he faces off against Zeke (AKA the Beast Titan), who Reiner insists is the strongest of the warriors (the hostile Titan shifters from Marley). He cuts the Beast Titan up just as easily as any other Titan and has Zeke amputated and completely at his mercy within seconds. For reference, Zeke killed Mike Zacharias- humanity's ''second'' strongest soldier behind Levi- with minimal effort.]]

** In response to Eren and Mikasa [[spoiler:attacking Levi in order to make sure that Armin gets the lifesaving titan injection(Hange thinks Erwin should get it, even after Levi changes his mind)]], when they say that they'll accept any punishment for their actions, she says that they can't just do what they want under the justification that they'll accept the consequences.

**[[spoiler: Hange is implied to have done this again in the aforementioned BigDamnHeroes moment. With no prior communication, within seconds of arriving to the battle with the Armored Titan, Hange was able to figure out the Corps plan, and provide critical aid to them.]]
