The Main Cast of Attack on Titan as Fruits and Vegetables

CH Sobriquet is more than qualified to write about fruits, vegetables, and giant humanoid creatures.

Most viewers can agree Attack on Titan is more than just a comic series and a TV show with big goofy monsters and cool action scenes. It’s a series full of violence and tragedy. Every episode brings another depressing moment that makes you ask yourself, “Could this have all been avoided? Why do humans go to such great lengths to oppress each other?” At times, it is a show filled with hope and beauty in life’s complexities. At others, it makes you question your very existence and life’s meaning.

On that note, I’m comparing Attack on Titan’s characters to fruits and vegetables. Why not, right? Don’t lie, you’re somewhat curious as to what fruit or vegetable your favorite character is in my opinion. At the very least, this should distract from the gloomy final arc that is currently releasing, (not to worry, no manga spoilers!) With all that covered, let’s get into it. Scouts, move out!

Eren Yeager - Broccoli

You all have gotten that (brief) feeling where you’re really excited about eating broccoli. It’s so good for you! If you just start eating it with every meal, your health will strengthen noticeably. Then, you try some of this frilly garbage, and you’re not as excited about it anymore. This is a strange summary of Eren’s character. As a kid, he was determined to rid the world of all of the titans and make it a better place. After actually trying to do that, he just gets super depressed and decides to destroy everything. Relatable.

Mikasa Ackerman - Strawberry

Mikasa is as hot as cooked Armin and as strong as Porco’s nutcracker jaw. This can be intimidating. However, she is a very sweet individual, just like a strawberry. I don’t know how intimidating strawberries are, but they do kick butt. Everyone respects strawberries.

Armin Arlert - Dandelion

I’ve always called Armin “Dandelion Boy”. Not only does he look like one (until his “glow-up”), but he has the soft, pacifistic nature of a flower. The only question is if a dandelion counts as a fruit or not. It would be a fruit, not a veggie, because it’s a flower, but is it even in that arena? I’m going to say yes, just because they are edible.

Jean Kirstein - Carrot

I hate to hop on the bandwagon of the overused “horse face” joke, but horses eat carrots, so here you go. I couldn’t think of anything else. You try coming up with 21 clever vegetable quips.

Sasha Blouse - Potato

This one was easy.

Connie Springer - Peach

This one is mainly based on appearance and Connie’s fuzzy head. Still, I feel like if a peach were a boy, he would be an idiot. If the shoe fits…

Historia Reiss - Carabao Mango

According to Guinness World Records, this mango is the sweetest fruit in the world. There’s no one it would fit better than our favorite bastard queen. Also, it portrays her more fruity side, if you catch my drift.

Ymir - Blueberry

Like Historia, I felt like I had to pick a fruit for Ymir (not in a derogatory way, it would just be irresponsible if they were vegetables). However, there was more to this pick than just that. Blueberries are tasty, and Ymir is tasty. Just ask Porco.

Levi Ackerman - Passionfruit

I actually know very little about passionfruit, so I’m mostly going off of the “passion” part. First of all, the man fights with gusto. Second of all, he probably has a following of fangirls equivalent to One Direction back in the day. Passionfruit is romantic, right? If only he could be as tall as he acts…

Hange Zoë - Jabuticaba

This odd fruit hails from Brazil and is supposed to be a cross between a grape and a plum. It’s weird; it’s unique; it’s Hange.

Erwin Smith - Rhubarb

Rhubarb is an inspirational vegetable. At its origin, it is nasty and sour and no one eats it. In spite of this, it can be used to create delicious pies and cakes and other foods of dreams. It’s a very motivating story. Meanwhile, Erwin is the most inspirational man I’ve ever listened to, fictional or not. Erwin Smith is rhubarb.

Reiner Braun - Greenhouse Tomato

Tomatoes don’t know what side they’re on. Are they fruits? Are they vegetables? Reiner is a tomato of a man, not really sure what side he’s on. He used to be a dedicated vegetable, but after living with fruits for four years, he realized that they aren’t devils. As for why I picked greenhouse tomato, you’ll have to stick around to find out.

Annie Leonhart - Garlic

ATTENTION - I know I promised no manga spoilers, but here’s an eensy weensy one, so skip if you want. I won’t even directly say it.

Garlic is a violent vegetable. It has an aggressive taste, and it kills vampires. On the other hand, mix that garlic with dandelion, and you get a scrumptious little salad. Scrumptious salads are comforting and nonviolent.

Bertolt Hoover - Pinto Beans

Pinto beans are small and unassuming. Bertolt isn’t small, but he’s definitely unassuming. Pinto beans can be explosive in a certain bodily region. Bertolt can be explosive when he needs to be.

Zeke Yeager - Banana

Hee hee. Monke like banana.

Porco Galliard - Heirloom Tomato

Remember how Reiner was a greenhouse tomato? Those are trash tomatoes. Heirloom tomatoes are the reddest and juiciest of them all. As a tribute to Porco’s recent passing in the anime, I gave him his one wish. I made him better than Reiner.

Pieck Finger - Pineapple

Ready for another metaphor? Pineapples are spiky and weird-looking on the outside, but bright yellow and patterned on the inside. The Cart Titan is horrifically ugly, and yet, it’s controller is shockingly attractive, except for when she gets all weird and crawls around on the ground. That is, unless you’re into that.

Floch Forster - Onion

Does anyone actually like onions? I can’t stand them, same as most people I talk to about onions, which I guess isn’t that many. I hold the same regard for Floch. He went from a cocky brat to a whiner, and then a murderous menace. Redheads, am I right? I’m just noticing this, but he even kind of looks like an onion.

Gabi Braun - Brussels Sprout

Remember the story I told about Eren and broccoli? The same applies to Gabi and Brussels sprouts, but with a different ending. Gabi was very energetic for a while, and then got depressed, same as her Paradis counterpart. Gabi didn’t spiral out of control the same way as Eren did, though. She even got to blast his head off, which was her goal from the start. I chose Brussels sprouts for her because many believe they taste bad, but when they’re properly prepared, they can be quite delectable.

Falco Grice - Sweet Potato

Falco is just a sweet little potato of a boy. His role in season four part one is to show the audience that there are good people on the enemy side. I, like many, did not like vegetables as a kid, but flavorsome sweet potatoes were their saving grace, just like Falco to the Marleyan military.

Ymir Fritz - Avocado

I am strongly opinionated when it comes to avocados. Many people don’t appreciate them, but I think that they’re heavenly. They taste great, and they contain more essential nutrients than any other fruit, 25 to be exact. Avocados are god-tier, and so is Ymir. She has the combined power of all of the Nine Titans, and she still affects the world after death. Additionally, her powers were given to her by a god-like figure. Yes, this comparison is the best I could come up with.

In Conclusion

Is anyone still reading at this point? If so, I greatly appreciate it, and I recommend my other articles. This was a silly topic, for sure, but a tribute to Attack on Titan in its own way. There are many ways we can perceive these characters and what they represent in our own lives. Apparently, one of these ways is fruits and veggies. If you think of inheriting the Jaw Titan next time you eat blueberries, I’ll have done my job.
