"Your strength amaze me. And I want to be just like you, Heichou."
Corporal Rivaille/Mikasa Ackerman: Their relationship began in a negative fashion, as she witnessed him beat Eren during a military trial. She once swore to make him pay for his abuse, and lashed out at him when the Female Titan managed to kidnap Eren after slaughtering Levi’s squad. Regardless, he expresses an understanding of her and is wounded saving her life — while temporarily sidelined, he repeatedly offers her advice, and she herself agonises over causing his injury. It is unknown if she still bears a grudge against him, though she eventually comes to accept his leadership.
