Added DiffLines:

* WrittenByTheWinners: The ancient history of the Eldian people shows this on both sides. Their own histories depict them as bringers of civilization and wealth during their reign who ruled with no ill will or corruption. After the Eldians were defeated, the victorious Marleyans depicted them as monsters who carried out a centuries-long ethnic purge of Marleyans. Even their connection to [[spoiler:Titans]] is viewed differently, with Eldians depicting it as a divine blessing and Marleyans as a demonic pact.
** [[spoiler:Owl]] points out the truth is likely somewhere between these two due to the obvious flaws. The Eldians could not have been perfect leaders as they were imperfect humans; and the Marleyans could not have been as viciously suppressed as claimed or they would be extinct.

* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Titan Shifters]] are all subject to the "Curse of Ymir". Thirteen years after becoming [[spoiler:Shifters]] their body will break down and die. There are no exceptions to this Curse; even Ymir died thirteen years to the day after becoming [[spoiler:the first Titan]]. This is bad news for [[spoiler:Eren]] who has around eight years left when he finds out.

* WhamShot: The panels where the Rogue Titan attacks another Titan over an immobile human and takes a boxing stance, indicating intelligence. Both are impossible as far as humanity's knowledge goes, as the expressions on the observers' faces show.

* SpaghettiWestern: {{Invoked}} in the duel between Levi and the Central 1st Brigade in Mitras. It even includes the hero (Levi) being surrounded in a canteen, hiding behind the bar while Kenny, wearing an outlaw hat, comes barging in, taunting with guns at hand to make Levi show his face; Levi, of course, [[spoiler:finds a rifle behind the bar and shoots Kenny in the chest, making his escape through a side window]]. The only things missing were the women wearing corsets and the pianola playing in the background.

* 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 is 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.
