** Marlo and Hitch ain't happening, [[spoiler:because Marlo's killed on his first Survey Corps expedition. Worse yet, Marlo's last thoughts before getting a quarter of his head dashed off is guessing Hitch is probably still asleep right now and being surprised at himself for thinking about her in the face of imminent death.]]

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Due to mention of a Far East and factoids like Chapter 1's title implying a future setting, the world's geography is assumed to be the same. It doesn't help that the Walls officially have a combined radius of 480 km (almost 600 miles across) or larger [[http://kaeru-ranawa.tumblr.com/post/61869765522/browningtons-fisherpon-the-walls-from-attack then most European countries or American states.]] This is all only assumption though, as the world outside the Walls is unknown.
** Now with the revelation of chapter 86 [[spoiler:that shows that the Walls are on an island named Paradis, which is relatively tiny compared to the larger continental landmass nearby; this could mean that either NeverWasThisUniverse or SciFiWritersHave/NoSenseOfDistance is full in play here. And just to make things weirder, the map given in the chapter corresponds to the upside-down map of southern Africa, with Paradis being the Madagascar.]].

* WhamEpisode: Many of them:
** Chapter 4 (Episode 5): [[spoiler: Protagonist Eren gets swallowed whole ([[AnArmAndALeg minus an arm and a leg]]) [[HeroicSacrifice to save Armin]]]].
** Chapter 9 (Episode 8): [[spoiler: Eren is alive with all his limbs intact, and was the Titan that attacked the other Titans]].
** Chapter 31 (Episode 23): [[spoiler: The Female Titan is Annie.]]
** Chapter 33 (Episode 25): [[spoiler: There are Titans within the Walls.]]
** Chapter 40: [[spoiler: Ymir is a Titan as well -- and, years ago, killed a childhood friend of two of her comrades.]]
** Chapter 42: [[spoiler: Reiner and Bertolt are the Armored Titan and Colossal Titan, respectively.]]
** Chapter 50: [[spoiler: Eren is indeed the [[HiveQueen Coordinate]], and it grants him the power to control Titans.]]
** Chapter 51: [[spoiler: Titans [[WasOnceAMan were once human]], and are innocent victims transformed into monsters by some unknown force.]]
** Chapter 53: [[spoiler:Pastor Nick is found murdered, and the Survey Corp's investigation of this reveals that there's a GovernmentConspiracy responsible for both the Wall Titans and the murders of Krista's family]].
** Chapter 54: [[spoiler: Erwin is preparing to stage a military coup d'état]].
** Chapter 55: [[spoiler: Because the Reiss Family is the royal family, Historia will be placed as the new queen by the coup forces.]]
** Chapter 56: [[spoiler: There's a group within the Walls actively suppressing humans, and apparently work for the king. Levi's full name is Levi '''Ackerman''' and there's a captain in the human-supression task force who called Levi his "pride," and also has a last name of ''Ackerman''.]]
** Chapter 57: Three [[OhCrap revelations]] in a row: [[spoiler:That Titans may be able to consume other Titans and obtain their abilities (including Titan-shifting) like Kirby, that Eren could be eaten by one of the Millitary Police's Titan Shifters/captive Titans and inherit his ability to control Titans, and that Ackerman Senior just killed three members of Levi's squad-]] WAIT, WHAT?
** Chapter 60: [[spoiler: The Survey Corps are going to be disbanded by the Royal Gov't, and Erwin Smith is marked to hang.]]
** Chapter 62: [[spoiler: Rod Reiss and Krista give Eren back his missing memories, revealing that Eren ate his father shortly after being given the Titan injection.]]
** Chapter 65: [[spoiler: More of the Ackerman bloodline is revealed, Eren reaches the DespairEventHorizon, wanting Historia to kill him & take his Coordinate. And she seemingly obliges, injecting herself and changing into a Titan.]]
** Chapter 66: [[spoiler: It turns out that the royal bloodline doesn't WANT to save humanity and reclaim the world, because the Coordinate contains the will of the first king, who wanted to rule over humanity in the walled kingdom. Historia destroys the syringe, and her father drinks it and becomes the Titan from last chapter. Eren finds a vial containing the Armor ability, breaks it open WITH HIS MOUTH, and transforms.]]
** Chapter 70: [[spoiler: Bertolt and Reiner have returned to Shiganshina District to recapture Eren and rescue Annie along with their new partner; The Beast Titan, who turns out to be a fellow Titan Shifter!]]
** Chapter 77: [[spoiler: The events that led to Marco's death are at long last revealed; During the battle of Trost, Marco accidentally overhears Bertolt and Reiner talking about their mission and their true identities as Titan Shifters. Both Bertolt and Reiner nervously write it off as a joke but Marco puts the pieces together and figures out that they were, in fact, NOT joking. Before Marco can react, Reiner tackles and pins him on the roof of a building out of sight from the rest of the soldiers. Annie ends up coming into the scene, and Reiner ends up forcing her to remove Marco's gear to prove she hasn't been compromised and is still loyal to their cause. They then leave Marco to be eaten by an nearby Titan, and all three of them end up emotionally traumatized by the whole ordeal.]]
** Chapter 81: [[spoiler: The entire Survey Corps, except Levi and the 104th, suicidally march to fight the Titans, Erwin included, to give Levi some time to come up with a strategy to defeat the Beast Titan. We see several gruesome deaths, as the Beast Titan pounds them all with rocks. Marlow dies a pretty horrible death, and Erwin Smith is pretty much implied to be dead. This leaves Levi and his squad, the survivors of the Reclaiming Expedition, unless Hange and her squad's fates are revealed. Worse still, Levi's charge to finally finish the Titan seems to be in vain, as the Beast Titan aims his gun at him.]]
** Chapter 82: [[spoiler: Armin gets burned to death by the Colossal Titan.]] It was all according to plan, though.
** Chapter 83: [[spoiler: Armin is alive, but barely. Also, the Beast Titan knows the Yeagers, more specifically Grisha, and implies that Grisha was also responsible for the Titans.]]
** Chapter 84: [[spoiler: Armin is saved by being injected with the Titan Serum, devours Bertolt and becomes a Titan Shifter. Erwin succumbs to his wounds and dies.]]
** Chapter 85: [[spoiler: At long last, Eren ''finally'' reaches the basement his father Grisha gave up his very life for with the fleeting hope that his son would one day do so and learn the truth about the world. While only a small piece of information was revealed so far, a photograph of Grisha and his first family, it was more than enough to completely shatter everything the humans living within the Walls have been led to believe; Beyond the Walls, Humanity is not extinct in the slightest and is in fact ''thriving'' with technological advances such as cameras, hence the photograph, and certainly numerous others.]]
** Chapter 86: [[spoiler: We learn about the world outside the walls. We learn of the oppressive government who blamed Grisha's ethnic group for the sins of their ancestors, and that he wanted to overthrow them with the power of the First Titan hidden within the Three Walls. We learn that that government also wanted the First Titan's power for their own reasons, but neither side could openly invade the walls without setting loose the countless Colossal Titans hidden within them. We learn that Grisha has a son with Diana Fritz. And that he sent his son to infiltrate his enemy's ranks as TheMole for his resistance group, only to be betrayed by him. Said son's name is Zeke, and he is currently the Beast Titan. Add to that the obvious Nazi overtones, and the series just became more complex.]]

** [[spoiler: [[GenreShift The story gradually moves away from this though]] as it becomes apparent that the people in the walls are ''not'' the last remnants of humanity and the Titans are more of a finite, organic weapon being used against them by another human faction rather than some infinite supply of creatures acting on their own. The mindless Titans are completely cleared from Paradis Island about a year after the battle of Trost and the story then becomes more about human-warfare than the Titan invasion]].

Everyone else in the military pretty much agrees that Erwin should've been kept alive]]. He also [[spoiler: criticizes Jean, Connie, and Sasha for doing nothing about the decision.]]
