Mikasa Ackerman captured the hearts of all Attack on Titan buffs with his kicking abilities. While she might not be as talkative, she does have some key moments in the anime and manga chapters. Today, as the anime of the series comes to an end, let’s cover 10 Mikasa Ackerman quotes that have fascinated fans. Let’s start.
Mikasa Ackerman is one of the main characters in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan. Between the trio of Eren, Armin, and herself, Mikasa is considered the powerhouse, in short, the strongest. She was rescued by Eren at an early age and has been part of his family ever since. From their childhood until their teenage years, she was the one that all the guys in the neighborhood would think twice before confronting. After completing her anti-titan artillery training, with flying colors of course, Mikasa has become a force to be reckoned with.
Mikasa always kept his friends first and kept them out of harm’s way. She used to go any distance to protect her loved ones, especially Eren. Mikasa’s journey throughout the series and manga has been very power-driven. His dialogue was key moments in the battles of hard times that always managed to turn the tide and became stuck in the viewer’s memories.
Here are 10 quotes from Mikasa Akerman:
1. I am strong. Stronger than all of you. Extremely strong. I can kill all the titans there. Even if I’m alone
Knowing her, Mikasa was a fighter, to begin with. Her past showed her that she was a well-to-do little girl living in an ordinary house doing chores with her mother. Well, things didn’t go so well for her because eventually she had to pick up a gun to kill a guy. The guy she stabbed is the one who killed her parents. It’s a perfect example to show how powerful and brave she was.
In Trost, she was the only one with the heart to slaughter titans left and right without giving in to fear. She went through the titans killing each of them. It was then that she spoke the words, “I am strong. Stronger than all of you. Extremely strong. I can kill all the titans there. Even if I’m alone. These words gave courage to his team members to fight and resist the titan even though there was a possibility of their death in the process.
2. Eat it, eat it and stay alive, I won’t let you starve
Attack on Titan revolves around one thing in particular, and that’s survival. The rule of the jungle runs through here where only the fittest survive, even if it’s disease, corruption, or a Titan. After Eren’s mother passed away, Mikasa was there to support him every step of the way. Although Eren planned to kill every titan in existence, his tragedy shook him for a long time.
Meanwhile, when Eren refused to hold back, Mikasa was by his side. She accepted the horrible truth and kept her promise to her mother. When Eren had no food, Mikasa put a loaf of bread in his mouth saying, “Eat it, eat it and stay alive, I won’t let you starve.” Given his appearance, she wouldn’t have regretted hitting him if he wasn’t eating.
3. When you’re the queen. You should hit that runt for me
Although Mikasa is a serious, earnest girl and never disrespects her superior, she doesn’t shy away from elegant puns. Fans appreciated his guts when such a pun was made against Captain Levi. While the two are from the same bloodline and Levi is his superior, what did he do for him to be such a commentary.
As Mikasa learned that Historia is of royal blood and a true air to the throne, she asked for his favor which was kind of a pun. Knowing that the story was now considered superior in terms of standards, she challenged her to punch Levi, saying, “When you’re the queen. You should hit that runt for me. The moment turned out to be quite hilarious.
4. A lot of people I cared about aren’t around either
Mikasa is family and she appreciates having people behind her when she needs them most. Since childhood, life was not the best for her until she reunited with her friends. Over time, she grew and created new bonds and relationships with new people. The fact that she knew that all good and bad things don’t last forever at a young age was proof that she had matured.
The series showed many people who were taken from him, counting his mother with Eren’s parents and a few of his fellow scouts in the bag. The big picture for her was that everyone had lost someone or something, but all they could do was move on.
5. If you think it’s natural for people to die for others. I am sure you will understand that sometimes the sacrifice of one precious life can save many others.
This particular line explained the heart of Attack on Titan. We have seen tons of people sacrifice themselves to keep humanity going. The scouts only learned one thing, and that is that humanity will only go on if they stood up and fought.
So it was better to fight than to die. Well, in Trost, a guy with a higher stature refused to move his cart. That’s when Mikasa arrives, he smashes his bodyguards to a pulp and says, “If you think it’s natural for people to die for other people.” I am sure you will understand that sometimes the sacrifice of one precious life can save many others. It terrified the guy to his soul as he moved his cart, letting people pass.

6. It’s true… This world… is cruel. It struck me that living was like a miracle
Attack on Titan mangaka Hajime Isayama grew up surrounded by nature. His message to fans became clear through the anime that only the most fitting rule. It’s the law of nature. It makes sense that being alive becomes a blessing in itself.
Mikasa was just a kid when she went hunting with her father. This is where she used to encounter insects that ate each other. It gave her the very big idea that in order to survive, she stained her hands with blood at a very young age.
7. There are only a limited number of lives that I can value. And I decided who these people were six years ago. So you shouldn’t try to ask for my pity. Because right now, I don’t have time to waste or a place in my heart.
We’ve seen Mikasa go through a lot of anime and manga chapters. With all the losses she has suffered, she has made herself stiff and less attached to things and is willing to sacrifice anything when the time comes.
This is the reason why she attacked Reiner and Bertholdt without worrying about the future. The decision was so strong that she even regretted not having cut off their heads. Although she has a benevolent and generous side, she also has a side where no one would want to be her enemy.
8. My scarf, please always wrap it around me
Eren has always been there to support Mikasa. If there had been a chance, he would have done everything in his power to save his friends from the sacrifice. He would never let any of his friends be in a life or death situation. At a young age, he saved Mikasa by killing one of the kidnappers. He pulled himself together and comforted Mikasa, wrapping his scarf around her.
Since that moment, Mikasa has not taken off the scarf for a single moment, and how she likes to keep it for herself.
9. I don’t want to lose what little family I have left.
Mikasa was always there to save Eren and Armin’s situation. There were several times when Eren, even with his titanic powers, had to rely on Mikasa for help. She is now considered an elite soldier, and when angry, she confronts Captain Levi at skill level.
The very thought of losing Eren and Armin would drive her crazy. Mikasa has lost too much in his life and will now do anything to defend both of them.
10. Believe in your own power
After gaining the power of Attack Titan, Eren became a major asset in winning the titan war. With this, a lot of expectations are placed on him, leading him to doubt his abilities.
Fortunately, he has friends like Mikasa and Armin who have been there with him from the very beginning to make him realize his true worth. After successfully blocking Wall Maria’s hole, Mikasa appreciated his efforts and even motivated him, saying he could do more.
