Once the adaptation of the third part of the final season of Shingeki no Kyojin was made official, in episode 86, fans have been more aware of the series than ever. Although it was not entirely pleasant news that they had to wait until 2023 to find out what was going to happen with the events of Paradis Islandthis considerable delay kept the audience with some questions that they seek to solve when the series’ finale arrives.

With the last titans joining forces to battle Eren Jaeger’s Founding Titan, corrupted by evil, there seem to be many possible scenarios for the group of Jaegers after the battle against Floch.. However, the audience is still not sure if the inhabitants of the Island will have a good destiny even if the titans are victorious in the fight. Meanwhile, theories about this great event are already circulating on the Internet to give an answer to the efforts of Eren Jaeger’s defectors.

The Armored Titan, a reference for many fans of Shingeki no Kyojin

Regarding the combat that will define the course of the history of Shingeki no Kyojin, among these titans we have several who have earned the admiration of their fans. And one of them is the Armored Titan. Belonging to the Nine Titans, it was born after the death of Ymir Fritz and its last owner was Reiner Braun, before the disappearance of the Power of the Titans.. But his skills are really impressive. This titan is known for its deep, thick skin that allows it to save itself from the most difficult attacks to dodge, no matter if it is even a cannonball. Thanks to this kind of armor, the titan is capable of ramming any of his enemies or destroying architectural constructions without any problem. His only weakness is anti-titan artillery or Lightning Spear, plus his armor has some speed decrease and movement restriction.

However, despite his apparent weaknesses against other titans, fans recognize that he is an equally powerful character and that they have respect for him, based on the events of the series.

Although the fan community is excited to know what will happen to the Eldians and what the conflict will lead to, they have a long time to wait to know the truth, so they have continued the plot through their own contributions. In this case it is not about narrative, but about the representations of its characters. Namely, cosplays have brought another of the titans to life in a very creative way: the armored titan.
