** The main theme has obvious influences from classic art, specifically from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_Devouring_His_Son "Saturn Devouring His Son"]]; and Saturn being a titan from Classic Mythology.

* SealTheBreach
** After the Colossal Titan kicks a hole in Wall Rose, the Garrison scramble to repair the breach before Titans come through, but fail to do so in time. Later, after it was revealed Eren was a Titan Shifter, a plan is made to have Eren carry a large piece of debris to use to cover the hole in the wall while soldiers fend off other Titans while escorting him. Despite some initial problem, the plan succeeds.
** The main goal of the Survey Corps after the Colossal Titan kicks a hole in Wall Maria is figuring a way to travel back to the breach while carrying materials to repair it. The logistics of this plan made it unfeasible, but the before mentioned Eren as a Titan Shifter and the discovery of the walls being of the same material as a Titan hardening itself provided a simpler plan of escorting Eren to the hole to seal it.

* ShaggyDogStory: The best the Survey Corps can hope for is a PyrrhicVictory, otherwise their missions turn out like this. One mission of theirs [[spoiler:(the 57th)]] collapsed in ''one day'' and failed to accomplish their goal, resulting in what remained of them limping back to the Walls to get ridiculed and verbally spat on.

* ToServeMan: The Titans think humans are very tasty. Evidence suggests that they don't even ''need'' to eat in order to survive, nor do they prey on any other animals besides humans.
* TragicVillain: [[spoiler:The three [[TheMole Titan infiltrators]]: Annie Leonhart, Reiner Braun, and Bertolt Hoover. Born into a nation that oppresses them for their "tainted blood", their families gave them to a military SuperSoldier project in hopes of earning better treatment. They were indoctrinated by their superiors, taught that their service could "redeem" them for the sins of their ancestors, and that the people living within the Walls were "children of the devil". They were given powers that limit their lifespan to 13 more years, and then sent to wipe out their fellow Eldians living within the Walls....under the belief they were ''saving'' humanity. All three begin to suffer horrific guilt and trauma over their actions, but are unable to abandon their mission -- failure or betrayal risks them being [[EatenAlive stripped]] of their powers and their families turned into mindless Titans as punishment. As such, they continue on in spite of having to betray their friends and coming to doubt their mission]].

humans. [[spoiler: It is revealed that the said Titans, i.e. the Mindless Titans, are innocent humans trapped within their Titan shells, unable to naturally exit their form. They must eat a Shifter to turn back into their original human form. This explains why [[TragicVillain the Titans are SO desperate to eat humans]], in the [[HopeSpot very off chance that said victim might be a shifter]].]]

He also showed UndyingLoyalty to Marley, believing that the Eldians will live in peace once they destroyed 'the devils of the island'. His meeting with his father, and the resulting consequences of his actions provide a Deconstruction. Indeed, the next we see him at Marley, he himself is shocked to see his cousin Gabi spout the same things he preached to all.]]
