5 Most Hated Characters in Attack on Titan

Most hated characters in AOT

Attack on Titan has one of the most fascinating character lists. Most of them are loved by the fans, but do you know who can be the most hated characters in AOT?

This “most hated” list is created by myself so it could not align with the fans out there, but I have tried to be accurate as possible. 

So let’s get started.

5. Rod Reiss

Rod was the father of the queen of Paradis, Historia Reiss. He was actually a coward who used his family members to be titans and destroy his enemies.

In the end, he finally became a titan and what an ugly titan that was!

There is actually no redeeming quality about Rod, so it is better to not discuss more of him.

4. Zeke Yeager 

Believe it or not, Zeke is still hated by many people, mostly by the fans of Levi Ackermann. It seems his sad backstory in episode 15 of season 4 didn’t have any effect on the people.

Although it is true that just because of a sad backstory, the actions of a man aren’t necessarily justified. But whatever Zeke did in the story, he thought it was justified because he was saving the world.

Why is Zeke hated?

There can be multiple reasons for this.

  • Zeke killed Erwin, one of the most influential characters in the story.
  • He tried to kill Levi, the fan’s favourite character.
  • He tried to euthanize the Eldian race.
  • Zeke tried to betray Eren, the main character of the story.

Fans were left shocked when Zeke survived the thunder spear blast back in episode 15 of season 4, but Levi was badly injured. 

For Zeke, there are only two things that matter to him – Ending the hatred between Marleyans and Elidans, and the other is Eren, his younger half-brother.

3. Gabi Braun

If this was the start of season 4, Gabi would be the first rank holder on this list, but since her great character development, she is ranked 3rd.

When season 4 started, Gabi was pretty likeable to the fans, but this feeling soon was demolished when the 12-year-old Warrior candidate did something unimaginable according to the fans.

In episode 8, Gabi killed Sasha, the potato girl who was liked by mostly everyone. Fans couldn’t take the fact that a good character like Sasha would be dead because of a literal child. This moment skyrocketed the hatred towards Gabi and she once was one of the most hated characters of recent times.

Everyone forgot Gabi’s suffering and for that, she had just taken her revenge, but they started hating her because she had killed a lovable character.

In part 2 of season 4, Gabi received an astonishing character development and people finally realised that everything was fine. But still, there are some who hate her to this day.

2. King Fritz

This man is probably the only bad guy in the whole story of Attack on Titan. King Fritz was introduced in Ymir’s backstory in part 2 of season 4. 

He was the king of Eldia around 2000 years ago and had made Ymir her slave. Not only that, when Ymir found the powers of the Founding Titan, he offered to give her his “seed”.

He used Ymir’s Founding Titan to expand his empire and destroy its enemies, including Marley.

Later when Ymir died, he ordered his daughters to feed their mother to inherit the powers of the Founding Titan.

Truly, a disgusted man.

Now is the time for the number 1 rank holder. By now, you would have guessed that character already.

1. Floch Forster

Floch is a menace to everyone in the AOT universe. This guy was a coward at the start of season 3, but underwent an astounding character development and became one of the most important characters of the whole story.

The different faces of Floch

There are plenty of reasons why fans hate Floch.

  • He always spoke the truth and questioned the main cast of characters a lot.
  • He vowed for Erwin to be reborn as he thought only a “devil” like him could save Paradis and because he was a lot more experienced than Armin too. This was the truth, but many fans didn’t like that.
  • Floch went against the Scouts by joining the Yeagerists to support Eren, his new devil figure.
  • He forced his new recruits to beat up Instructor, Keith Shadis.
  • When he found Captain Levi badly injured, he mocked him a bit but fans couldn’t take it as Floch has done that towards their most famous character.
  • Floch puts a bullet in someone’s head when they don’t obey him or are a threat to Paradis.
  • He fights for his country until his last breath.
  • He is sometimes compared to Erwin Smith but fans didn’t like that either.

In episode 86, he stole the show by beating Hange, the Scouts commander and a couple of titan shifters alone! 

This unprecedented determination to fight for his homeland won the hearts of many, but still, he remains probably the most hated character of Attack on Titan at the moment.

Bonus: Yelena could be one of the hated characters in this list, but I wasn’t sure about her, so didn’t include her. What do you think of Yelena?
