How Tall is Levi Ackerman Now?
Levi Ackerman, otherwise known by his real name as Hiroshima Kayima, is 5 feet 6 inches tall. This places his height above average by a mere one inch, and as a result, he does not exactly stand out when in the company of average-height or tall individuals.

Why is Hiroshima’s Character Levi Ackerman so Short?
In reality, Hiroshima is 5 feet 6 inches tall but the character Levi Ackerman is only 5 feet 2 inches tall. Thus, he is 4 inches shorter than his real self. This makes him one of the shortest characters in the anime series. Here are some reasons that explain his small stature.
Levi Had a Poor Maturation
Because he lived underground most of his childhood, Levi had very little access to sunlight and this led to a great deficiency in Vitamin D which is essential for a child’s development. Added to this, he also was malnourished as his meals did not have most of the nutrients essential for a growing child. This factor played a big role in why Levi’s height is a bit less than is normal for people his age.
His Choice of Food as an Adult Helped Stunt His Growth Further
As an adult, the character Levi loved his tea very much. The constant consumption of tea reduces the body’s ability to assimilate calcium, as such, his poor nutrition as an adult also made him not reach the normal height he should.
Hiroshima’s Height Compared to Other Star Actors in Attack on Titans
Although Hiroshima is not the tallest cast in AOT both as Levi Ackerman and as himself in real life, there are some members of the casts whose heights might make him look tall, and others whose height makes Hiroshi’s small stature very obvious. Let’s take a look at some of these co-stars.
Levi Ackerman’s Height Compared to Mikasa?
Voiced over by Trina Nishimura, the character Mikasa Ackerman is not taller than Levi Ackerman. Trina is 5 feet 4 inches tall, and this makes her shorter than Hiroshima by 2 inches. The difference in the heights of these two actors might make Hiroshima look quite a bit tall when they stand beside each other.
How Tall is Levi Compared to Eren Yeager?
The major protagonist character Eren Yeager was voiced over by Yuki Kaji. Standing at a height of 5 feet 7 inches, Yuki is slightly taller than Hiroshima by an inch. This difference may, however, not seem very apparent when the two actors stand together.

Is Levi Ackerman’s Height Above Armin Arlett’s Height in Real Life?
American voice-over actor Josh Grelle starred in Attack on Titan as the voice of major character Armin Arlette. As the character Armin, he is 5 feet 5 inches tall, which is 3 inches taller than Hiroshima’s Levi Ackerman. In real life he stands at 5’8″ and is thus, 2 inches taller than Hiroshima. However, one may only notice this slight difference in height upon closer observation.
Although he has not revealed his diet plan, Hiroshima weighs 65 kg which is a great fit for his height. He has a slim body type, and the absence of any prominent muscles makes it obvious that he does not work out much even though he has not spoken about having any workout routine.
