In Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), most of humanity has been devoured by man-eating giants. What's left of the human race has retreated behind towering walls in a last-ditch effort for survival. For over 100 years, those walls have kept them safe. Perhaps that was long enough to lull them into a false sense of complacency. As long as humans stay inside their walled city, they'll remain safe, right?

Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) - Armored Titan

In the year 845, humanity received a grim reminder of their situation. The walls that had kept them so safe for so long finally failed. Thanks to the coordinated attack of the Colossal Titan and the Armored Titan, the walls were breached and the outermost wall was ultimately lost to the Titans.


The Armored Titan

With compared to his partner, the Colossal Titan, the Armored Titan may look small, but this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, the Armored Titan is 15 meters tall! Based on size alone, he already poses a significant threat under normal circumstances.

But what makes the Armored Titan dangerous isn't his size. It's the fact that unlike other Titans, he is covered with hardened skin. This hardened skin takes the form of plates that resemble armor and serve as the basis for his name.

As the name suggests, his armored skin makes him practically invulnerable. But like any set of armor, he does have a few chinks that expose him to attack. The trick, however, is discovering where they are. Who wants to take that risk?


Role in the Fall of Shiganshina

Attack on Titan opens with the fall of Shiganshina, the hometown of main characters Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert. After the Colossal Titan kicked through the outer wall, the Armored Titan barreled through and took out the military's defenses. After that, he continued through Shiganshina until he reached the inner gate and destroyed it. It's his actions in particular that led to Wall Maria falling to the Titans.


A Looming Threat?

While very little has been heard of the Armored Titan since that fateful day in Shiganshina, his memory has not been forgotten. Along with the Colossal Titan, the military fears his return. No matter how much you prepare, nothing can withstand his focused attack. After all, what can stop his impenetrable armor?

Without a doubt, the Armored Titan made an impression at the beginning of Attack on Titan. Considering the significance of his role in setting things into motion, he's bound to make a reappearance. And no doubt, it will be as shocking as his debut!
