* EmergencyTraineeBattlefieldDeployment: The series' initial focus is on a team of newly minted graduates repelling a sudden invasion of titans. Eren, the main character, gets eaten right off the bat...but thanks to the series' AppliedPhlebotinum he survives, and the plot marches on.

*** Later information shows that [[spoiler:she was and Eldian, orphaned at an early age, taken in by a conman who gave him the name "Ymir" in order to scam fellow Eldians into a cult around her. When the Marley police found out, he blamed the entire thing on her, and she accepted the blame for the sake of him and the congregation. [[SenselessSacrifice All of them were sent to Paradis anyway and turned into titans.]] 60 years later she encouters Reiner, Bertholt and Marcel, eating the latter and iheriting his shifter ability.]]


Added DiffLines:

** All of the enemy titan shifters share the backstory of [[spoiler:being oppressed second-class citizens in Marley, living at the mercy of Marley police and military. They joined the titan warrior program in order to achieve some respect and autonomy to their people.]]

** One of the "Information Available For Public Disclosure" tidbits mentions how the territory surrounded by the Walls is rich in fossil fuels and other natural resources, [[spoiler:which is the main reason the Kingdom of Marley is set on wiping out the people inside the Walls and claim the entire Island of Paradis]].

** When Eren saves Mikasa from her abductors, his command to FIGHT! triggers a visually distinct scene in the anime of her nervous impulses. [[spoiler: When Eren unlocks his Coordinate ability much later on, he triggers a similar reaction in the Titan Shifters. It has been implied that Eren's coordinate ability can also be used to command humans. Also, it has undertones regarding the fact that the Ackermans were the proverbial "muscle" of the Reiss family before they began hunting them down, further explaining the role they played when the First King enacted the Coordinate.]]

** [[spoiler:Erwin and Armin do this in chapter 80. Erwin leads the remnants of the Survey Corps' expedition against the Beast Titan ([[NewMeat which are all new recruits]]) on a SuicideAttack to distract him so Levi can swing over to him on his nearby Titan entourage, and is killed by the Beast Titan flinging torn boulders at the charge like shrapnel shot. Armin embeds his 3DMG's anchors in the Colossal Titan's teeth as the Colossal Titan superheats himself while Eren hardens and evacuates his Titan's body to make it appear as if Eren's barely conscious and out of the fight, giving Eren time to get over to the Colossal Titan's back. Armin is crisped from the event such that his upper body's clothing and hair are totally burnt away.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: On the last page of chapter 1, you can see a mindless Titan that's very clearly female in it's build- breasts, hips, and feminine buttocks and all. Later on, it's established that all mindless Titans will have masculine bodies regardless of if they were women as humans or not (and the only indication of their former gender might lie in their facial features). The only Titans that can have female secondary sex characteristics are Titan shifters.

* DetachableBlades: The Vertical Maneuver Gear features a pair of dual blades, with their grips serving as the control of the hooks. Soldiers usually carry multiple blades in boxes built at the sides of their thighs, and the blades are swappable in case one of them gets stuck on a titan or broken.
