Just an inquiry on where exactly this was said.

"Their relationship is implied to be some sort of rivalry. It's hinted that Annie doesn't like Mikasa for the simple fact that she may be a stronger hand-to-hand combatant, and that Mikasa resents Annie's constant rough treatment of Eren whilst teaching him her techniques." 

Where is it said that Annie doesn't like Mikasa for the simple facts she 'may be' a better hand to hand combatant? I was just skimming through the page and saw this, and it seems like that's just some headcanon stuff that was added- I can't seem to find where this was even implied in the manga or anime. Unless it deals with the beast comment- which is very vague. And Annie being rough with Eren doesn't seem to be why Mikasa dislikes her. If this was the case, she'd be just as irritated with Jean and his constant fighting with Eren. Is this statement canon and backed by a source or is someone just adding stuff that they think is true? XXObsidianXx (talk) 23:27, June 16, 2016 (UTC)

I don't think these things were ever stated in canon. The rivalry's definitely there, but the causes seem to be someone's headcanon. It should be removed unless someone can cite it. --GodKingReiss (talk) 23:34, June 16, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for confirming it for me, I was genuinely wondering if I missed something. XXObsidianXx (talk) 23:45, June 16, 2016 (UTC)

Anime Images

I was wondering if you could please put some anime picture on Mikasa like the one in Eren's Page.Jennicious (talk) 09:58, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Yep, I'll take care of it ;)  Miskos3 Talk  10:10, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Someone please fix the image. I really appreciate it.67.169.57.52 04:13, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

New Topic

I was wondering if someone please put of section where it list the characters from Strongest to Weakest because I really like to know who is what position they are in.Jennicious (talk) 21:24, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean? (also, when starting a new topic, please click the "New Topic" button at the start of the page.) hfc2X 22:03, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

Ranking strongest to weakest.

Here is the example I am referring to below

Anime Image

I thought you said that you will take care of it. But I haven't see any changes on Mikasa's page at all. It's still the same.Jennicious (talk) 23:34, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you so much. I hope you all more to her. I really appreciate it.Jennicious (talk) 21:23, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

It is better now? :)  Miskos3 Talk  16:29, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Why is the "main picture" one of Mikasa with long hair? She has that look for 1 chapter/1 episode and that is why it should really not be used to represent her. NeoSuperior (talk) 01:53, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

I've been looking for a replacement, however all potential candidates have either weird lighting/are too dark or simply don't look too good.  Miskos3 Talk  16:53, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Eye color

It's written that her eye color is blue, but in the pictures, they are clearly black.

124.176.77.24 00:58, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Her nendroid has blue eyes. also, when she was remembering her past (the scene in which her dad brought an animal he had killed), her eyes widened, highliting her blue eyes. Her eyes must have gone a greyish color when her parents died, because she felt cold and lonely inside. But genetically, her eyes are blue. TitanJuice (talk) 02:24, February 11, 2014 (UTC)

Um, nope. I can see blue... Also, check episode 8, when she is saved by the Rogue Titan, there is a close-up view of her eye.  Miskos3 Talk  16:54, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Alright, so when Eren/Rogue Titan saved her.
So... Did you mean this one, or this one?  Or maybe even this one? In episode 7 (not 8) in which she is saved by Eren/Rogue Titan, in which her eyes are black in each shot?
But since you were talking about episode 8 after all, have some close up shots of her face in episode 8 as well. Right herehere,here,here, and here. Lovely pictures of mikasa for your viewing pleasure.
Now, since you've proven yourself to be colorblind and thus not trustworthy of deciding the color of someones eyes, I'm just going to go ahead and pain myself to bother logging to fix this minor, but annoying mistake.
As they say, you have to do it yourself if you want it done properly. 124.187.150.228 09:35, September 20, 2013 (UTC) Aka Felix*Pillow (talk) 09:37, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
Oh how I feel for you. We all praise you for your 20 seconds of effort of actually logging in and changing a single word! Hail the great saviour!
Seriously, grow some social skills. Having a difference of opinion doesn't mean you have to throw around insults and act like you're the most important person in the world.
The people here have build up the entire wikia and you complain about changing a single word.... NoNickNeeded (talk) 10:00, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
You know, you talk about me lacking social skills yet you're acting no different. Hypocrite much?
Regardless, I did not come here to argue like a brainless titan. (Unlike you, apparantly?)
So I'm not going to. The error is fixed and I'm moving on, you should do the same, unless you're a titan. Felix*Pillow (talk) 15:36, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
Everyone relax. While I agree that her eye color is most definitely black (as all promotional material have shown her as such), give Miskos a break will ya. The change is done, no need for all the bragging and no need for the snarky remarks. Move on, and live and let live folks.--DementedP (talk) 10:04, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry if I've gone too far, but people like that just get my blood boiling. Miskos has made so many edits and this person acts as if he was completely incompetent because of a single mistake.... NoNickNeeded (talk) 10:08, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Contrary to popular belief, I'm just a human so hey, stuff happens. I'll just blame my memory as I wasn't able to check when I stated it was blue. *shrugs* Either way, let's not get into useless fights. Thank you Felix for fixing this error even though your second response could've been nicer ^_^;  Miskos3 Talk  10:09, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, my response was very snappy, and rude. I've encountered some people who say something that is incorrect regarding different things, and it really, really gets up my nose. I've ended up getting into some rather nasty 'discussions' with certain people who insist that it is correct despite many facts against them, and I do go overboard with things sometimes. In this case, definitely. So, I'm sorry for that. Felix*Pillow (talk) 15:36, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
There is one site that said that her eyes are blue not black. It seems that her eyes might be color less because when you look at the image when the sun shines on her the color of her eye isn't black. Her color eyes seems to change when it is in dark and light area.Jennicious (talk) 20:20, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
When I was looking at her character image very closely her eye color seems to be grey not black. The middle part of the eye is black put the side part looks gray. If it was black than everything would be darker but it doesn't look that way because part of it looks light (Not too light).Jennicious (talk) 20:34, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
Honestly at this point I think it's a bit too much to jump into the idea of grays/dark blue just because it's always highlighted in the anime. I've seen "black" hair, and "black" eyes get turned into different color hues (blue, brown, even the bizarre case of dark purple) despite the fact that they're labeled as "black" and it's mainly to do with highlighting their features for better visual recognition. Even in Western comics this tends to happen where black gets substituted with blue highlights because it's easier to tell what's going on. We also have cases where white/silver hair has been turned into light blue or pale purple/violet based on the same principle. Just leave it at black. While you can argue that the middle part of her eye is darker, this is only natural as the middle part of an eye is always darker than the outer ring. By highlighting her eye color more, it's easier for the anime to emote her emotions in traditional anime-style expressions (glints for surprise/anger/murderous intent, or lack of shine for sad/shocked/apathetic etc.) and this has been done before with other characters that have black eyes. Out of all the characters from SNK Mikasa is the only one that I noticed who's been consistently shown as having completely black eyes in promotional artworks/merchandise (in comparison to say Levi, who's actually depicted more as greyish blue despite being very close to Mikasa's eye color in the anime). With all those things considered I'd say just leave it as black for now.--DementedP (talk) 20:46, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Plot twist  Miskos3 Talk  10:03, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

I have a question. How come Mikasa eye color change?Jennicious (talk) 05:54, October 17, 2013 (UTC)

it's actually a shade of grey, but sometimes it's a bluish-grey colour, like the official Indonesian high school students' uniform skirts/trousers, yeah that sorta colour.  {{SUBST:User:BloodHunter99/Signature}} 13:51, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
I think that you should put a shade of grey, but sometimes it's a bluish-grey colour instead of black.Jennicious (talk) 11:25, November 11, 2013 (UTC)
You know what? You only do criticism/suggestions to the articles but you have actually made zero edits to the mainspace. Your comments will start to be ignored (yes, talking to you, Jennicious). hfc2X 17:12, November 11, 2013 (UTC)
I am just saying that her eyes are not black. You don't have to be rude.Jennicious (talk) 21:55, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
Could someone please change the color of her eyes? I really appreciate it. Thank you so much.209.129.168.31 03:01, November 23, 2013 (UTC)
We don't even know her eye color to start with. The manga has her eyes consistently black (because it's black and white). The anime, however, has her eyes as gray, purple, green and blue. Total mystery. hfc2X 03:25, November 23, 2013 (UTC)
How about doing exact same thing with Eren on his appearance also just like what your doing?Jennicious (talk) 06:26, November 23, 2013 (UTC)
Her eyes are not black that's only in the manga because it's not in color making her eyes black but that not the case in the anime. If your looking in the anime her eyes are not black if you look very closely. So could someone please change it. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much if you do.209.129.168.31 17:35, December 5, 2013 (UTC)
Someone please change the color of her eyes or mentioned that in the anime she has this color of eyes while her eyes are black in manga.209.129.168.31 05:00, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

Mikasa's main image

I know that the current main image for Mikasa's infobox is a really good-looking mug shot, but do we have one of her with the shorter hair and scarf? I just find it odd that we'd still be using her appearance based on her longer hair when the majority of the series has her in her shorter hair. Not that I'm saying that I have good photos of her with her short hair, but I just thought it's something worth mentioning.DementedP (talk) 21:56, September 19, 2013 (UTC)

I added something, but I am not sure if it is OK for everyone else, because of the effects of the evening sun and some other things. I uploaded it , so tell me what you think about it. If it is not OK, then please tell me what should be considered when choosing an image. NeoSuperior (talk) 23:38, September 19, 2013 (UTC)
It's good but the face is too rounded.Jennicious (talk) 23:47, September 19, 2013 (UTC)
I found one that looks good but its a moving image.Jennicious (talk) 00:36, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
It seems the image didn't appear so here is the site to the image: http://otakuorbit.wordpress.com/2013/09/06/30-day-anime-challenge-day-7/ but I found another two images.

You can choose out of these three but your choice whether you like it or not. It's just a suggestion of these three images I found.Jennicious (talk) 00:46, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
I ended up using a similar (if not the same) screencap as the first one you suggested, and I think that's good enough. --DementedP (talk) 01:32, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Mikasa's Statistics

I am confuse about Mikasa's Statistics because it keeps on changing. I honestly don't know which is the correct one anyway.Jennicious (talk) 23:43, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

(broken part removed)

Sorry about that it seems that the image of the Statistics didn't work.Jennicious (talk) 23:49, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

If the statistic is correct than how come her teamwork went down from 6/10 to 5/10? Somenone please explainJennicious (talk) 06:58, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Mikasa's teamwork on Statistic

When I look at the Mikasa Statistics from this site: http://indulging-inaccuracy.tumblr.com/post/49673140889/official-stats-taken-from-the-character-guide. Shouldn't her teamwork should be 6/10 instead of 5/10. When complaring Her and Eren it looks so far about but when compairing to Sasha it seems to be the same. If it is the same as Sasha, Mikasa should her teamwork be 6/10 because Sasha teamwork is 6/10.Jennicious (talk) 08:23, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

You are right, I corrected it now. Thank you for pointing it out. NeoSuperior (talk) 11:57, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

I still don't see any changes in Mikasa's Story. Could someone please updated her's I really appreciate it.Jennicious (talk) 23:29, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

What's it that's missing? (You can add it yourself if you want). hfc2X 23:40, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, there's no reason you can't update it yourself.

--Harostar (talk) 04:48, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Latest info on the manga. I'm totally new at these things if adding the info and not good at writing infos.Jennicious (talk) 06:33, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

how come there is no change in Mikasa and Eren while the other are up to date.Jennicious (talk) 00:42, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

LOL Calm down. There's nothing stopping you from adding the info. In fact, we encourage you to contribute. hfc2X 01:36, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
What's that suppose to mean? I rather have someone do it so put the information down on word doc so I can transfer it to my iPhone to read it from there.Jennicious (talk) 00:41, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
I apologize for not adding more on Eren and Mikasa's pages. I do intend to contribute more detailed content regarding their Story section similar to how I did for Annie's page (whom I've more or less used as a trial of sorts to serve as my template). I've simply been busy with University finals so it's stopped me from heavily editting any of the pages. That said once I'm done, I'd be more than happy to add and fix the content on Eren and Mikasa's pages (followed closely by Armin who himself has very little stuff despite being a central character). DementedP (talk) 15:44, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks so much for the updates on Mikasa.Jennicious (talk) 05:52, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
What happen to the info? Could you please put it back? Why delete it anyways?Jennicious (talk) 03:44, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Because I was working on the references with an older version, and upon revision, I noticed the final paragraph was super inaccurate anyways, but I'm so tired I will not be adding it again corrected. Besides, you can do it yourself if you want the info to be there. We're not anybody's servants (sorry if it sounds like I'm mad. I'm not, I'm just tired). hfc2X 03:49, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Could someone please updated for Mikasa, Eren, Connie, Sasha, Jean, Armin, Hange and Erwin? Just like what you did on Levi and Historia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jennicious (talkcontribs)

Every character will have their info updated. That is when users, other than admins, start editing the articles. hfc2X 07:01, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

I have a question. The reason Mikasa hasn't been updated because there's not much happening in the manga? Or it's something else?209.129.168.31 02:12, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Could someone please update her info? I really appreciate because I like to know more about her.209.129.168.31 22:26, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

It's seems there not much changes in Mikasa's story because Levi's story looks like it's up to date. I know how annoying of me asking but it's been so long that nothing has change but may be editing the grammer.Jennicious (talk) 06:28, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

If you feel a page is out of date, please feel free to edit it yourself.

--Harostar (talk) 06:39, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

Well, I would like to do it but I'm not so good summarizing what's happening. I am not capble of doing so.Jennicious (talk) 07:18, September 3, 2014 (UTC)

Mikasa's Bitrhdate?

I saw yesterday a change in Mikasa's birthdate from February 10 to October 16. So, i was wondering which of these two dates is the correcet one. Does anyone know? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.75.19.23 (talkcontribs)

The february one. hfc2X 16:19, October 31, 2013 (UTC)

Her weight and height

Sorry but I think there're so problem about Mikasa's height and her weight. With these numbers, 170cm and 68kg that  mean Mikasa is quite fat and not good looking. I think her weight may be same 60kg or below. Sorry about my bad English, thanks!!!:)Exodia080 (talk) 14:16, November 13, 2013 (UTC)Exodia

Man i have been thinking the same since the day i first saw it. Mikasa's heigt i nice but the analogy between her heght and kilos actually sucks for a girl. Eren is a boy and he has the same height with Mikasa ( 1.70m ) but he is 5 kilos less ( 63 ). Also, even Jean who is taller than Mikasa ( 1.75 ) is not so many kilos ( 65 ). Thinking of this Mikasa is quite fat compared to other heroes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by San&Ashitaka (talkcontribs)

You've never heard about muscular people being heavy, right? Also, those numbers are from official sources. We didn't make up anything. hfc2X 18:06, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
I couldn't agree more with hfc2x. Muscle is denser than fat. It takes up less space but weights more in terms of the same volume. In fact someone already made a thing about Mikasa's weight: http://corazongirl.deviantart.com/art/Mikasa-s-weight-409536501
This is why Snk is better, it doesn't have unrealistic body sizes and weights. 210.55.212.166 21:57, November 14, 2013 (UTC)anon
With the recent OVA Mikasa's muscular body frame has basically been cannonized after being teased in that one promotional piece showing her abs while stretching with HIstoria. As such, and in order to avoid confusion like with Exodai and San, would it be appropriate to mention this fact in her description section and/or her abilities page like with Levi? KrimzonStriker (talk) 17:44, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Mikasa's Mark

Hello, not a contributre, just a reader. I want to mention that the 'mark' that Mikasa was given by her mother ( http://i.imgur.com/zJxaznel.jpg ) was changed in anime to being an embrodiery in both anime and visual novel that was translated by white flower translation. Small thing and of small importance, but in keeping the wikia professional, thought I would mention it. Thanks for all your hard work - I use this wikia quite often while discuss this manga on discussion forums. 79.191.201.240 08:35, February 13, 2014 (UTC)Kolox

Huh, that is an interesting point.  I'll check it out as soon as I can (my excuse to watch shingeki no kyojin anime again!).  Thanks for telling us and using the wiki for you discussions.  It is always cool to have the editors' work and dedication recognized to such an extent!

Yes, though we don't know what time of year the story is taking place to know whether she's gotten older since it started or not. She's the same age as Eren, so she'd be 15 when she graduated. --Harostar (talk) 04:36, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Scar below her eye

In the article: "Mikasa also has a small scar below her left eye, which she received after Eren in his Titan form plugged the breach in Trost District." Actually, the scar is below her right eye and she received the wound after Eren turned into his Titan form to plug the breach. Here: http://www.onemanga.me/shingeki_no_kyojin/13/6/. If it's no need to be that punctual in the article to tell when she get injureded, the scar is still below her right eye, not left. Just sayin. Or here: "As the mission commences and Eren goes into Titan form, he loses control, attacking Mikasa, and eventually knocking himself out.[58][59]" it could be mentioned. Aa krei (talk) 20:55, July 2, 2014 (UTC)

I'm going to ignore the part where you specify how she exactly got the scar because that belongs on the episode page. It seems awkward and out of place so I'm just going to change it to right eye for ya; if you disagree, go ahead and change it to how you like but make sure it sounds okay. Gurgatory (talk) 21:17, July 2, 2014 (UTC)

Mikasa's Parents

I have a question. Will there be a section on Mikasa's Parents?Jennicious (talk) 08:59, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

what the f*ck is going on?!

I went to a Barnes and Noble, and I flipped through Attack on Titan Volume 14. At the end, I saw Mikasa putting gonna mascara, he hair curled and she was SCARFLESS?!?! I know she takes off when she's hot but Mikasa is definitely NOT hot in the picure. She looks rather ugly, a actually. There was a thing that said "Mikasa is a stylish gal"or something like that, and almost threw up. She looks AWFUL. On the next page it shows shocked Eren and people saying "What have you done?"


That's what I want to know.

Foster or adopted

This conversation comes from the Talk Page of Eren's article, but I decided to move it here since it concerns Mikasa.  Kireeti suggested that calling Mikasa the "adoptive sister" of Eren (and adoptive daughter of Grisha and Kalura) it's not appropriate since there is no canon confirmation that she was legally adopted by them, so the proper terms would be "foster sister" and "foster daughter". I think that's right, and I can't remember any time when Mikasa is referred even as Eren's sister (people usually think they're a couple), so it seems there is no way to confirm if they call her "adoptive" or "foster" at least in the manga. However, all the other sites use the term "adoptive", so it's possible that she has been referred to by that term in some extra source (Guidebooks, Isayama's blog, etc), but I can't point to any specific work, so for now, for reasons of accuracy, I think is best to use "foster". Can anyone point to any source where this issue is clarified? Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 14:58, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

I realize this is a bit old, but since no one seems to have answered you and the article says "foster" now, in the official manga guidebook in Mikasa's relationships section her relationship to the Yaegers is listed as "adopted", and she is listed on Eren's page as his "adopted sister". Her page even starts out "As a girl, Mikasa was adopted by the Yaeger family."
Here is Mikasa's page , and here is Eren's page .Nue Renji (talk) 00:07, July 14, 2015 (UTC)
There's no need to post screenshots because I have the guidebook (I didn't have it at the time I wrote that), and I confirm that it says "adopted", so thank you for pointing that out, I had completely missed it. I'm going to correct the pages now.--Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 02:21, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

Mikasa's manga image

I purpose a replacement for Mikasa's current manga image to this one:

It's of lower res than the current one, but still looks better imo.AhmedHadi1 (talk) 09:53, February 9, 2017 (UTC)

I agree, a more neutral expression is much better as her profile image. The current one doesn't fit well with her character as a whole at all. --GodKingReiss (talk) 21:01, February 9, 2017 (UTC)
I also like the new picture - more serious expression and recent Isayama's drawing style --Insieme (talk) 21:34, February 9, 2017 (UTC)
Agreed too.--Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 21:41, February 11, 2017 (UTC)
