ATTACK ON TITAN: TOP 10 FACTS ABOUT CAPTAIN LEVI ACKERMAN
Levi is one of Attack on Titan’s most popular characters, but there are still a lot of things fans may not know about him.
When it comes to defending humans against the eternal threats of Titans, Levi Ackerman is considered a shining star of the Attack on Titan world. His incredible skills on the battlefield and strategic intelligence make him a formidable opponent.
With all these things in the series, it’s really no wonder that Levi is such a beloved supporting character among Attack on Titan fans. Even as a supporting character, he gets plenty of time in the timelight whether it’s during epic battle sequences or flashbacks to his younger years. But even with all the attention Levi gets during the anime, there’s still plenty to learn about him.
This article will mention 10 things you may not probably know about Captain Levi.
10/10. Levi used to be a thief.
Who have watched the series Attack on Titan will likely be surprised when learning that Levi was formerly a criminal. Being brought up by his uncle – Kenny Ackerman certainly had an effect on Levi, and even if never became the monster like his uncle, Levi ran with a band of thieves before being caught by the Scouts – who after that forced him to atone for his crimes.
Levi together with two other thieves – Isabel and Furlan- took part in the Survey Corps as punishment, but Levi is the only one of the three surviving. Since joining, his priorities have changed dramatically. He’s honed his talents for the good of humankind and played the good guys and looks a whole lot better on him.
9/10. Levi’s childhood is the reason for his cleanliness.
The majority of Levi’s childhood was spent in the Underground City – slums of Attack on Titan world. His mother was a prostitute living in poverty when he was born, and after she passed away, Levi was left with nothing. He eventually was taken in by Kenny, who taught him to become a criminal so as to survive. Due to living in the awful state of the underground in his younger years, he longed for a clean home and currently, he finds Aaron to be the best at cleaning.
8/10. Levi is older than he looks.
If I were to take a guess at Levi’s age, it’ll have to be early to mid 20s. When being asked about Levi’s actual age, Isayama has stated that Levi is surprisingly old but he’s refused to give us an exact age. After much fan speculation, he confirmed that the character is actually in his mid-30s.
7/10. Levi is a bit on the short side.
His exact height is 5 foot 3 and weighs at 143 pounds. Despite his short appearance, he is considered humanity’s best fighter.
6/10. Levi’s personality and design were modeled after Rorschach from the Watchmen series.
Isayama revealed during his interview with Brutus Magazine in 2014 that he created Levi’s character after seeing Watchmen. Isayama decided that he wanted to make a character similar to Rorschach, which might explain Levi’s personality, short physique, impressive combat skills, and the white cravat on his neck.
5/10. Levi’s name was inspired by a person from the documentary Jesus camp.
His name also means contradiction in Hebrew although Isayama claimed that he mostly picked it since it sounded nice.
4/10. Levi is a fan of tea.
He has a fondness for black tea as he finds anything like sugar or milk being too available for him to afford. Moreover, Levi’s dream is to open his own tea shop.
3/10. Levi suffers slightly from insomnia.
He only sleeps for an average of 2 to 3 hours. He doesn’t change his clothing before going to sleep and rather than using a bed, he prefers to sleep in a chair.
2/10. Levi’s date of birth is on December the 25th.
Isayama previously mentioned how he picked out Levi’s birthday. Signify a special meaning which is really common practice so December 25th, you know what that means? That’s right, it is Santa Levi Ackerman.
1/10. To say that Levi is popular is an absolute understatement.
Levi ranked the first place in two-character popularity polls. In each of these polls, he ranked higher than the main- Eren Yeager. This has led to many things, he has had his own manga spin-off series called “ No Regrets” and it is absolutely amazing. If you haven’t read it yet, I strongly recommend you to try it.
