Attack on Titan has a reputation as an anime with a lot of death and with the show primarily being about man-eating titans, it certainly isn’t unwarranted.

The anime brutally kills off a lot of named characters, with the vast majority of these dead being Survey Corps soldiers. 

Whether you want to pay respect to the fallen or just want to know if a beloved character lives or dies, keep reading for a complete list of all the named characters who die in Attack on Titan!

Beware spoilers for Attack on Titan manga.

The Most Significant Deaths in Attack on Titan

Kenny Ackermann 

Kenny dies in episode 47 of the Attack on Titan anime when he’s fatally injured following Rod Reiss’ transformation. While acting as an antagonist at this time, his death serves to tie up loose ends for Levi, as the Survey Corps captain finally learns of Kenny’s status as his maternal uncle.

Erwin Smith

Commander Erwin Smith met his end in Attack on Titan’s episode 55 after getting injured in a sacrificial charge against the Beast Titan. As one of the first important characters to die, his death had far-reaching consequences for both the Survey Corps and the anime’s plot.

Sasha Blouse

Sasha was shot to death by Gabi in the anime’s episode 67. As the first person from the main characters’ close-knit circle to die, Sasha’s death has a strong emotional impact on both her fellow characters and the audience. 

Hange Zoe

Seeming to follow Erwin’s example, Commander Hange Zoe sacrificed herself in the anime’s Final Chapters Special 1 to slow the Rumbling down and buy the others some time. Her cloak caught fire from coming too close to the Wall Titans and she burned to death.

Zeke Yeager

In a moment of redemption, Zeke willingly dies at Levi’s hand after revealing himself and getting his attention. As Levi beheads him, he is both able to keep his promise to Erwin and end the Rumbling. This death is yet to be animated but will most likely be a part of Final Chapters Special 2.

Eren Yeager

Attack on Titan ends with the death of its protagonist, Eren Yeager. Eren dies at the hands of his childhood friend and romantic interest, Mikasa Ackerman, who beheads him to kill him and stop the Rumbling for good. Fans are most likely to see this death in Final Chapters Special 2.
