The real reason Bertolt was chosen as the Colossal Titan in Shingeki no Kyojin

All fans of Shingeki No Kyojin know very well the great importance of the changing titans in anime, especially some that were introduced to us in the first season, Bertolt Hoover has been one of the best known and most representative characters of Shingeki no Kyojin, but he is also well-liked enough in the community for a few reasons.

Something that seems quite curious to us is that Bertolt has gone through different changes throughout history. At first he was considered a trusted member of the Survey Corps and turned out to be just the opposite: a traitor; but in a surprising twist he became the object of the audience’s sympathy and even a bit of sympathy.

Many of those who have closely followed Bertolt in Shingeki no Kyojin know in advance that he was chosen to be one more member of Marley’s Eldian warrior unit, but the fact that he was the one who finally possessed the Titan has surprised him. Colossal. While Bertolt has shown great intelligence and strategic ability in combat, his companions have also regarded him as weak-willed.

This is one of the main reasons why the decision to grant him this kind of power was initially questioned. And in fact it is so, his personality traits do not seem to belong to someone who could be recruited by a military group to develop the tasks of one of the most powerful Titans in Shingeki no Kyokjin.

Although it seems quite contradictory, these were very possibly the reasons behind Bertolt’s choice to assume such a responsibility. Bertolt’s moderate character and his need to seek confirmation of his strategies made him the right person to host the Titan.

Regarding the Colossal Titan, we could say that the abilities it possesses are very important since they are perhaps the most powerful of all. The height of it consists of more than 60 meters and can emit large amounts of steam, enough to burn the enemies that face it and generate such energy that it could destroy any construction known to man.

Making this decision was not easy for the Marley government, since, if the Colossal Titan were to betray its interests, it could become a great danger to the citizens. But it was his compassionate nature, along with exceptional intelligence, that made him the perfect candidate to inherit the Colossal Titan.
