Eren Yeager is the main protagonist of Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan manga series. Just like any other manga, Attack on Titan also got its own anime adaptation where we see our main protagonist and his comrades doing their job.
Eren is a character who features a lot of interesting characteristics. One of Eren’s character that we have seen in the Attack on Titan anime adaptation is him acting like a child. In fact, his childish behavior almost put the world’s fate at risk. Some believe that Eren has become a villain, but it was precisely these behaviors that paved the way for the Attack on Titan history we know.
Aims to Kill All Titans
The world of Shingeki no Kyojin is a world of humans surviving the rough and deadly titans. While Eren’s ambition is a little bit tough, especially when he was young when he said it. The protagonist’s ignorance promising to kill all the titans roaming the world even without knowing the complexity of these creatures is an act of pure childishness.
Making a Surprise Attack Against Marley
In Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 1, the anime shocked fans with the action of our main character. Eren Yeager put his plan into practice and attacked Marley alone without telling his comrades. If the supporting characters such as Mikasa and Armin know about his plan, it’s very likely that they will oppose or discuss the proper way to attack their enemies without killing the civilians. In one of the episodes of the 4th season, Eren’s Founding Titan appeared and smashed the enemies during the ceremony. At the same time, Eren also defeated and acquired the War Hammer Titan.
Insulting Your Own Friends
Eren has an attitude of insulting his friends, regardless of the situation. During the Colossal Titan’s attack in the city of Armin, Eren called him a coward that almost resulted in intrigue. But thanks to Mikasa who intervened in the situation between Eren and Armin. Otherwise, the situation would have taken a completely different turn.
While both Eren and Mikasa grew up together for a long time, Mikasa’s behavior is opposite to Eren’s, which shows the stark difference in maturity between them.
Hiding His True Intentions
The revelation that Eren and Zeke were conspiring together turned out to be a great chagrin. In addition to putting his own friends and comrades into a conflict, he hid his intentions all the time. The worst thing about it is that Eren betrayed his trusted friends to someone he didn’t even know.
At the very beginning of the series, Eren already showed his childish side. We saw this for the first time when Mikasa reveals the boy’s feelings about wanting to be a part of the Survey Corps. In addition, Eren also always hated that Mikasa got into fights and left without any scratches. Basically, his ego wouldn’t let him admit that Mikasa was way better than him.
