* ApocalypseHow (ApocalypseHow/Class3A): A little over a century ago, the Titans appeared and nearly drove humanity to extinction. A few hundred-thousand remain within the Walls, and face the constant threat of complete annihilation should the remaining Walls break. Mikasa's mother may have been the last Asian left, hinting that entire ethnic groups may have been wiped out completely by the Titans. Information about the Outside World is banned, making it impossible to know how much of the previous society was lost as a result of the survivors being forced into hiding. [[spoiler: The revelation that Annie, Reiner, Bertolt, and Ymir come from outside the Walls suggests the possibility that other human settlements survive outside the Walls]].

** [[spoiler: When Grisha's basement is opened, some of its secret contents include a ''photograph''. Then his notes reveal that not only does he have another family outside the walls, but out there, humanity is ''thriving'']]

* BrokenAesop: The manga and anime both are very forceful with the message that you can't win a serious fight just by giving it all you've got. Armin skillfully comments on this in the last episode of the anime (which is where it gets broken) with the line "Determination alone isn't enough to win a fight" and later "It'll take more than raw passion to beat Annie". Only a few minutes later, this is exactly what happens, with Eren's monstrous rage turning him into a so-far unexplained monster of a Titan that Annie gets completely overpowered by.

** Though he was only able to because Mikasa cut off Annie's fingers so she couldn't climb over the wall. If not for that, Eren's determination would've meant nothing.

** Armin, though his badassery can be debatable at times, his adorableness cannot be denied. [[spoiler: Asides from saving Jean's life, becoming a renowned tactician, and other countless events, Armin's final moments definitely confirm him as being a badass.]]

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: The Titans, which vary show could be called ''Attack Of The Fifty-Foot Whatever: The Series'', to put it simply. True to form, the typical Titan is a humanoid creature about 50 feet tall, being described in size but generally tower over humans.the series as 15 meters. Some can grow to be ''hundreds'' of feet tall and there are several smaller variations, though even the "tiniest" Titan will still be about 9 feet tall (3 meters).

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Levi with regard to his 3DMG, as well as a much worse one under the Y section. Levi's CharlesAtlasSuperpower allows him to completely shred normal titans with little effort, and when Titan Shifters don't take him seriously, they're quickly given a hard lesson in Levi's power and skill. All of this ignores how it has to be done in maneuver gear, which makes how fast one goes (something Levi was particularly noted for) dependent on how much gas is used, not the user's body.

** Levi is also credited with utilizing a ReverseGrip for one sword while using maneuver gear blades, which when called out by his instructor as stupid, was noted to actually be pretty smart as it allowed him to SpinAttack Titans and more efficiently kill them. Look at the maneuver gear blades and their triggers. Using a ReverseGrip would completely remove Levi's ability to use his left wire trigger and cripple him. This are both pretty odd examples, considering they use a fictional device, though one that at least was deliberately designed around real-world physics.

%%* AlternativeCalendar: The series begins in the year 845 of the local calendar. This implies that the world was HitSoHardTheCalendarFeltIt nearly seven hundred and fifty years ''before'' the Titans appeared and started eating everyone. While the world resembles some sort of alternate Earth AfterTheEnd, this has remained ambiguous so far. The title of the first chapter, ''"To you, 2000 years from now"'', is likewise unexplained and does not match the standard names assigned to subsequent chapters of the series. As such, its meaning and significance are a great mystery of the series and a source of much speculation.

* BastardAngst: There's [[spoiler: Krista Lenz, aka Historia Reiss]] who's the illegitimate child of the most powerful nobleman in the series. Because of this, the character was sent to away and grew up isolated and lonely, with the few neighbors acting cruel -- to say nothing of the character's mother [[ThatThingIsNotMyChild showing nothing but hatred for them, all the way until her traumatic death]]. After all that, said character joined the military under a false name in order to get away. Although they're kind and nice, other characters note that the character's actions seem deliberately suicidal than outright helpful, and point out that they only joined the military looking for a glorious way to die.
