    Short summary describing this character.

    Levi has short, straight black hair styled in an undercut curtain, as well as narrow, intimidating dull gray eyes with dark circles under them and a deceptively youthful face. He is quite short, but his physique is well-developed in musculature from extensive vertical maneuvering equipment usage. He is usually either frowning or expressionless; that, plus his extremely calm demeanor, often makes it difficult for others to guess what he is thinking.


    As a result of his early childhood years, Levi is described as a "clean freak" by those who know him personally as he prefers his environment and himself to be spotlessly clean. He is averse to having either himself or his equipment soiled, and has been known to wipe down his blood-smeared blades while still on the battlefield. However, he will not hesitate to touch filth if he deems it necessary.

    Despite his preoccupation with cleanliness, Levi is not very approachable. He rarely shows emotion, giving a cold impression to others. His manner of speaking tends to be very blunt, even insulting, and his comments are often coarse or inappropriate. He is not above provoking or belittling those who oppose or irritate him. His sense of humor tends toward the vulgar, insulting, and dark. All of this makes him unsettling to a great number of people.

    Powers and Abilities

    Levi does indeed possess superhuman abilities, as he is an Ackerman, a bloodline of humans that can partly manifest the strength of a Titan that were created to protect the Eldian King. He is also an extremely skilled and efficient Titan killer, being considered humanity's greatest soldier, and hyped to be as strong as an entire brigade. When it comes to mastery of the ODM gear or the swords that are used in conjunction with the gear, no other character in Attack on Titan comes close to Humanity's Strongest Soldier. The reason why Levi moves so fast in comparison to the others despite them using the same ODM gear is due to his mastery of it, he can utilize the ODM at its fullest potential when it comes to both maneuvering and traveling. Another reason being maneuvering with ODM gear centers around one constantly shifting and moving their own body weight, and that Levi, as an Ackerman that can partly manifest the strength of a Titan, wouldn't be bothered by that. Levi utilizes efficient, unorthodox attack patterns, often grappling onto ledges and releasing the hooks of his 3D gear mid-attack. For unique Titans, he will aim for debilitating parts of a Titan - such as the eyes, muscle tissue, and joints - to incapacitate and shred it, rather than straight shots to the nape.
