Attack on Titan is one of the most commercially successful anime shows ever released.
And it’s not just another shitty anime series spewing the same bullshit either.
The story is about humanity’s struggle for survival against the terrifying, man-eating titans.
Which is why the anime quotes are so meaningful, emotional, powerful and relatable.
And so – to jog your memory, here are some of the best AOT quotes from the series.
Some of which will inspire, motivate, and give you a little courage.
28 AOT Quotes:
Eren Jaeger Quotes
“If you think reality is just living comfortably and following your own whims, can you seriously dare to call yourself a soldier?” – Eren Jaeger
This quote relates to life in general, too. Too much comfort is never a good thing, long-term.
“What is the point if those with the means and power do not fight?” – Eren Jaeger
“I don’t have time to worry if it’s right or wrong, you can’t hope for a horror story with a happy ending.” – Eren Jaeger
If there’s one thing about Eren Jaeger, he’s brutally honest to the core.
“I want to see and understand the world outside. I don’t want to die inside these walls without knowing what’s out there.” – Eren Jaeger
Similar to Eren Jaeger’s 1st quote.
Hange Zoe Quotes
“Ever since I joined the survey corps, I’ve had people dying on me everyday. But you understand, don’t you? One day or another, everyone you care about eventually dies. It’s something we simply can’t accept. It’s a realization that could drive you insane.” – Hange Zoe
Hange isn’t wrong. Depending on your perspective, that thought could be difficult to swallow.
“Even in moments of the deepest despair… I guess we can still find hope, huh?” – Hange Zoe
Armin Arlert Quotes
“People are crazy for believing that these walls will protect us forever. Even though the walls have been intact for the past 100 years, there’s nothing that can guarantee they won’t be broken down today.” – Armin Arlert
It’s easier to convince ourselves that things are “safe” than it is to accept reality.
“You’re only resorting to physical abuse because you can’t prove that I’m wrong.” – Armin Arlert
“I think there are times people have to die… even if I don’t like it.” – Armin Arlert
One of the saddest AOT quotes.
“When people are faced with a situation they don’t understand, it’s easy for fear to take hold.” – Armin Arlert
One of Armin’s truest quotes.
“People who can’t throw something important away, can never hope to change anything.” – Armin Arlelt
“I want to survive…And see her again. As a person, I’m really lower than shit. But she knows that, and she smiles kindly at me anyway.” – Ymir
I just love Ymir’s straightforward approach to life.
“Do you always want to live hiding behind the mask you put up for the sake of others? You’re you, and there’s nothing wrong with that.” – Ymir
Why pretend you’re someone else just to please others?
“Living this way is my way of getting revenge. I’m going to be living proof that your fate isn’t decided at birth!” – Ymir
You can almost feel Ymir’s words in this moment of the anime.
“I too used to believe that the world would be a better place if I hadn’t been born. I was hated merely for the fact that I existed, and I died for the happiness of many people. But there was one thing I wished for with all my heart… If I’m ever given a second chance in life, I want to live for only myself. That is my sincere wish.” – Ymir
Erwin Smith Quotes
“If we only focus on making the best moves, we will never get the better of our opponent. When necessary, we must be willing to take big risks, and be prepared to lose everything. Unless we change how we fight, we cannot win.” – Erwin Smith
Erwin is one of the most logical characters in AOT. And his words are breath of fresh air.
“If you begin to regret, you’ll dull your future decisions and let others make your choices for you. All that’s left for you then is to die. Nobody can foretell the outcome. Each decision you make holds meaning only by affecting your next decision.” – Erwin Smith
My favorite AOT quote.
Historia Reiss Quotes
“We need to stop living for others. From now on…Let’s live for ourselves!” – Historia Reiss
Historia’s moment of courage.
“Even if you have your reasons and there are things you can’t tell me, no matter what, I’m on your side.” – Historia Reiss
Levi Ackerman Quotes
“A lot of the time, you’re going into a situation you know nothing about. So what you need is to be quick to act… and make tough decisions in worst-case scenarios.” – Levi Ackerman
“I don’t know which option you should choose. I could never advise you on that… No matter what kind of wisdom dictates you the option you pick, no one will be able to tell if it’s right or wrong until you arrive to some sort of outcome from your choice.” – Levi Ackerman
The hard truth in certain life situations. This quote is aimed at Eren Yaeger.
“You couldn’t save your mom because you… weren’t strong enough. I didn’t face the Titan… because I wasn’t brave enough.” – Hannes
The introduction quote to Attack On Titan.
Mikasa Ackerman Quotes
“This world is merciless, and it’s also very beautiful.” – Mikasa Ackerman
Two sides of the same coin.
“I don’t want to lose what little family I have left.” – Mikasa Ackerman
“There are only so many lives I can value. And I decided who those people were six years ago. So you shouldn’t try to ask for my pity. Because right now, I don’t have time to spare or room in my heart.” – Mikasa Ackerman
“That’s right… This world… is cruel. It hit me that living was like a miracle.” – Mikasa Ackerman
Annie Leonhart Quotes
“Going against the flow… takes a lot of courage. I respect that. Maybe people who can do it are just stupid, but… Well… What I’m sure of is that people like that are rare.” – Annie Leonhart
Marco Bott Quotes
“You’re not a strong person, so you can really understand how weak people feel. I mean… Most humans are weak, including me… But if I got an order from someone who saw things like I do, no matter how tough it was, I’d do my damnedest to carry it out.” – Marco Bott
