** On the other hand, Levi has a penchant for violence many other characters find disturbing. It starts with his unnecessarily brutal beating of Eren, from which point on Mikasa began having fantasies of beating him in a similar manner. It comes to a head when he uses violence to coerce a stammering [[spoiler: Historia into taking the throne]], actually grabbing her around the throat. She gets her revenge later, probably being the first person to get away with striking Levi.

* FrontlineLeader: Usually averted, Erwin stays at the center of his travel formation so that he can command everyone effectively. However, he's fully capable at fighting alongsisde his men when necessary, and boldly leads the charge [[spoiler: of the main distraction force against the Beast Titan.]]

* AmbiguousGender: Word of God is that [[http://kodanshacomics.tumblr.com/post/73207971230/hello-i-wanted-to-ask-you-guys-a-question-about-attack "either [pronoun] is fine"]], giving fans carte blanche to decide Hange's biological sex and gender identity for themselves. The anime adaptation and "A Choice with no Regrets" both portray Hange as physically feminine, but similarly avoids giving any indications through GenderNeutralWriting.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotNice: More or less a requirement as the commanding officer of the regiment with the highest risk factor in the entire military. His job can be boiled down to being the one who decides where to send men to die.
** He shanghai'd Levi into joining the Survey Corps by subtly implying that without the Survey Corps protection, his friends would be brutalized by the Military Police for their crimes.

* FreudianExcuse: His obsession with cleanliness comes from living in filth and squalor in the underground city, where his greatest desire was a clean place to eat and sleep.

* TheChessmaster: Known for his brilliant strategies, and for being a dangerously manipulative individual when necessary. He invented the formation that reduced losses significantly, and manages to manipulate those around him to great effect. Most notably, he sets in motion a month-long plan to draw out suspected enemies [[TheMole hidden]] within the ranks of the military and uses his entire military branch as pawns in it with only a select few trusted individuals being in on the real mission. He manages to manipulate not only the rank-and-file within the Survey Corps, but also the very highest chains of military command all in order to expose a threat he does not know for certain exists. All of this, while using Eren as the bait and placing the lives of every single person under his command in danger. Even when the primary goal of the mission fails, he manages to salvage it with a secondary plan that proves (mostly) successful.

He is so good at that he essentially organizes a coup while under arrest and seizes control of the government during his impending execution. However, he meets his match against the Beast Titan, who cuts off all of his options with a simple pincer formation and forces him to resort to a suicidal charge.

* TapToTheHead: Occasionally receives these from Levi, who punches Hange out and throws them into a bathtub when they needs a bath. This doesn't seem to affect Hange's mental faculties or wellbeing.

* {{Hypocrite}}: [[HeelRealization As he acknowledges himself]], in truth, he was asking his soldiers to die for humanity while he himself was unwilling to since he was still desperately trying to answer his question to his father. Of course, [[HypocriteHasAPoint the sacrifices he demanded of his soldiers ultimately ''did'' help the people of the Walls]], but it's still a grim thing to come to terms with. [[spoiler: In the end, this is what drives him to join in their suicidal charge against the Beast Titan, wanting to finally pay his men back with his own life]].

* 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.]]
