Characters / A Slap On Titan

Go To

Eren Yeager

  • Antagonistic Offspring: Potentially to Hannes
  • Ax-Crazy: In his Titan Form.
  • Berserk Button: Titans as usual. Hannes is perhaps an even worse one.
  • Epic Fail: In this series, the reason Eren initially performs poorly is not because of faulty gear, but because he didn't know he's supposed to fasten the buckle.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He may be a massive Jerkass but he is horrified by Armin's parents awful parenting (Sending him to a pray away the gay camp at the age of five)
  • Advertisement:
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Is very jealous of Mikasa's prowess and the recognition she gets for it.
  • Heroic BSoD: Upon learning Hannes is his potential father.
  • Humiliation Conga: His trial. Everyone present knows about his mom, Mikasa's attraction to him gets explicitly called out to him for the first time, and Levi beats the everloving shit out of him.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Carla was a prostitute and slept with Hannes. Somehow this is the Titans' fault.
  • Jerkass: Especially towards Mikasa
  • Luke, I Might Be Your Father: Hannes estimates there's between a 20 and 30% chance that he's Eren's father, though given the reaction at Eren's trial, that might be overestimating his chances.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: While it's debatable whether a punch from Mikasa is minor, Eren still over sells it.
    I'm definitely leaking spinal fluid. I'm pretty sure my face is hollow and I can't remember how to smile. I can't feel pain anymore. Or joy. You've crushed both my spirits and my jaw structure. Why did the Walls grant you dinosaur strength? It feels like I just got smacked by a freight train made of hate. A hate train. I will never love again. Or walk. This must be what animals feel like when they're going extinct.

  • Oblivious to Love: Eren here is even worse than canon considering the fact that this version of Mikasa is far more straightforward about her feelings. Eren fails to notice Mikasa's obvious attraction to him. Such as when Mikasa asked him to kiss her for luck before going to battle, or when she states to him she will love him forever after she saves him from Ascot Man. And all the funnier considering He realized that Jean hates him because he is attracted to Mikasa.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has one when he passes his test.
    Eren: Now no one will know my mom was a whore!
    Trainees: Erens mom was a whore?
    Eren: SHIT!!
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Vows one against the Titans after learning his mother slept with Hannes
  • Son of a Whore: Much to his undying rage.


Armin Artlert

  • Abusive Parents: His parents sent him to a Pray Away the Gay camp when he was 5. The last thing his grandfather ever said to him was laughing hysterically about the fact Armin will be orphaned when he gets eaten by Titans.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Shardis, who's undergone a bit of this himself, describes Armin as "the ultimate culmination of human sin", and further saying that he considers Armin the most terrifying creature he's ever met.
  • Admiring the Abomination: He quickly develops a huge crush on the Female Titan after she kills several soldiers and spares his life.
  • All Anime Is Naughty Tentacles: The muscle tissue binding Eren to the Rogue Titan reminds Armin of his own hentai nightmares.
  • Big Bad Friend: To Eren and Mikasa. To a lesser degree, he is also one to anyone in the cast that he has had friendly interactions with, like Reiner and Connie.
  • The Chosen One: He believes he is destined to become a Dark Lord. Strangely enough, Kitz Vermin is also aware of the same prophecy and wishes to be The Chosen One of it.
  • Creepy Child: Crafted life-like dolls of his bullies and stabbed their eyes out before lighting them on fire.
  • Cruel Mercy: Promises one for Kitz, that he may bear witness to Armin's will.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: And I want a wool sock!
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Reiner mistakes him for a woman and develops a crush on him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Horrible person though he is, he sincerely loves Eren and Mikasa, and intends to bestow them each with a kingdom once the world is his.
  • Evil Genius: He's still quite intelligent (at least compared to everyone else) But just look at the other tropes here.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Not normally; he's usually got a very high pitched voice. But when he starts ranting at The Female Titan in Episode 17, his voice distorts and becomes far deeper than normal as he descends into one of his most evil moments thus far.
  • Evil vs. Evil:
    • His contest with Kitz to decide who is the "most fucked up person on the planet."
    • The Titans are also in the way of Armin's ambitions.
  • Expansion Pack Past: So far he's revealed extensive experimentation with auto-erotic asphyxiation, a desire to go to med school to become an abortion doctor, and having a promising future in fashion design until he was told that you couldn't wear people as suits.
  • Eye Scream: Doesn't suffer it himself, but he has "an unhealthy obsession with ocular trauma."
  • Freudian Excuse: He credits his Abusive Parents sending him to a "Pray Away the Gay" camp when he was five as making him "the success story I am today!"
  • Large Ham: Has his moments.
    I am a steaming cauldron of sexual needs and desires right now!
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: When he convinces Jean and Reiner to help him pursue the Female Titan.
    Then throw your hoods up. It's time to regulate on a bitch.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: How he's so good with the 3DMG.
  • Overarching Villain: The Titans are the main antagonists, but Armin is shaping up to be an even bigger threat to humanity.
  • The Red Baron: He calls himself "The Crimson King" while ranting to the Female Titan about how he will make her his queen.
  • The Stoner: Huffs glue, does shooms, and inhales the gas from the 3D gear.
  • Take Over the World: What he plans to do after the Titans have been dealt with.
  • Team Killer: Tried to offer Jean and Reiner as sacrifices to get the Female Titan's attention and affection.
  • Unholy Matrimony: He wishes to make the Female Titan the queen to his Crimson King.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Suffers two. The first, when Eren is eaten by a Titan in front of him, he falls into despair. The second, when Eren punches himself in the face, is more wrathful, to the point where he tells Mikasa to shut the fuck up.
  • Villainous Crush: Like almost everyone else in the 104, he has a thing for Mikasa.
  • Villain Protagonist: For the latter half of the first season, he's more of a protagonist than Eren is. Also, progressively more evil.
  • You Will Be Spared:
    • Eren and Mikasa are the only pawns in his evil plans that he truly values, and he intends to dedicate kingdoms to them after achieving total world domination.
    • The Female Titan decides to spare Armin's life after killing the other soldiers with him.

Mikasa Ackerman

  • The Ace: She is so awesome she is described as being mankind's potential saviour. Shardis fails her anyway for being a woman.
  • Action Girl: Just like in Canon
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: While this doesn't cover her attraction to Eren, it does cover her attraction to his titan form, which is based largely on his musculature.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: this version of Mikasa is MUCH more direct about her love for Eren, but he still fails to notice her.
  • Berserk Button: People thinking she knows karate or claiming that she cannot "control her raging ovaries".
  • Big Brother Attraction: Has a crush on Eren.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Her moment of genre savvy(see below) works just as well on the women as it does the men.
  • Female Misogynist: A minor instance of this trope came up when she told Armin to use his “weak, womanly ways” to convince the military not to kill them.
  • Gamer Chick: Got 100% Completion on Shadow of the Colossus.
  • Only Friend: When Armin realizes she's about to run out of gas, he panics that he'll lose the only female friend that tolerates him.
  • Love Martyr: Quickly becoming one of this considering how much a jerk Eren is to her.
  • Only Sane Woman: Seems to be one of the few people in the series who isn't insane or a Jerkass.
  • Pet the Dog: Genuinely consoles Armin after he tells her about Eren's supposed death.
  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to the racist recruits.note 
  • Safe, Sane, and Consensual: The sane part may be a stretch, but she fantasizes about the Rogue Titan bending her over and spanking her with her own scarf. We're not entirely sure how that works with the size difference.
  • Screaming Warrior: She has her moments.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: The only person she's attracted to is Eren, to the degree that she actually is attracted to his titan form as well, before she even knows it is him.
  • Super Strength: Her "man strength". It's suggested in the first episode that it's the result of hormone supplements.
  • Token Minority: She's the only Asian left. Unfortunately for her, this means she has to deal with everyone assuming she does sterotypical Asian things.

How well does it match the trope?
