* WeirdnessMagnet: Lampshaded by Jean, who complains that just about everything that he could think of happened to the cadets of the 104th. The Top Ten cadets are considered excellent recruits overall, but the batch ended up being noteworthy not only for their capabilities as soldiers, but rather because five of them turned out to be Titans (three of them enemies -Reiner, Bertolt and Annie-, one ally -Eren- and one WildCard -Ymir-), [[spoiler:another is part of clan of super-human warriors (Mikasa)]], yet another turns out to be [[spoiler:the heiress to the throne of the Eldians (Krista/Historia)]] and another's unfortunate circumstances end up unfolding the discovery that the Mindless Titans contain human beings (Connie). They are '''by far''' [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers the most important batch of cadets ever to be part of the Military]].

** His [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish tendencies]] and brusque, haughty persona has the narrative portray him as a {{Jerkass}} DirtyCoward... and then everyone sees how ''terrifying'' the Titans really are, and how utterly unglamorous and wholly unrewarding their lives as soldiers will be. Suddenly, Jean's original sentiments don't ring so hollow. Marco says this is why he's fit to be a leader - he's clearheaded about people.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's quite rough and a bit mean at times when he´s first introduced, but CharacterDevelopment turns him into a nicer person who trusts others. This really hits home after the Battle of Trost - remembering Marco's declaration for him to be a good leader, he abandons his goal to join the Military Police for a life of hardship to help Eren's group.

* TookALevelInKindness: Jean starts out as a selfish and cynical soldier who wants to enlist himself in the Military Brigade Police but after most of his comrades including his best friend: Marco [[spoiler: dies fighting off the titans in the Trost district.]] He becomes kinder, friendly and nicer to his remaining comrades willing to work together to help each other.

* TheBeautifulElite: Even among pretty girls like Mikasa, Annie, Sasha and even Ymir, Krista is ''profoundly'' beautiful and on a league of her own. In a SlidingScaleOfBeauty, she would be between a Level II (World Class) and coming within the fringes of Level I (Divine), as she has been described as the "goddess" of the 104th. She turns out to be a hidden princess.

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Historia reveals her identity of the true Queen mere moments after everybody in the Orvud District watched her take down Rod Reiss's Titan in a BigDamnHeroes moment. ''Then'' she opens up an orphanage for abandoned children and spends her days watching over them. As a result, she's pretty much beloved by the masses and, ironically enough, viewed as a Goddess like figure- not unlike her "Krista Lenz" persona was in the past.

** She is the very first Queen of the Walls, [[spoiler:and possibly the first Queen of the Eldians]], that does not carry the Coordinate of the Progenitor Titan [[note]]For the record, her father didn't carry it either, as he was only the King because there was no one else to fill the position left by Frieda's demise [[/note]]. As such, she is the first Queen of the Walls that is not a subject of the Will of the First King, she hasn't been titanized, and she is the first Reiss that is formally the monarch of The Walls, whereas her predecessors governed behind the scenes; this last aspect is rather ironic, as it's actually a military junta that holds the actual power, making her little more than a figurehead.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: She wanted to take Historia with her alongside Reiner and Bertolt when they capture Eren; this is because she is somewhat aware of Historia's importance and thinks that Reiner's people can protect her better then the Walls can. Later, when it's revealed that Historia has royal blood, [[CallForward it's later exposed]] ([[CallBack earlier, if we go by the timeline]]) [[spoiler:what the Marleyans would have done to her when Eren Kruger talks with Grisha Yeager about his wife Dina's own royal blood, as they would turn her into a lab-rat-baby-factory for the Warrior Program; this, being the reason why Kruger withheld the information and allowed her to be turned into a Mindless Titan.

* ChekhovMIA: [[spoiler:She's been missing since the Clash of the Titans arc onward and in chapter 89, it's strongly implied in her letter to Historia that she might have been killed by the Warriors in order to recover the Dancing Titan power; at least, she is under the impression that this would happen. Still, it's not yet known whether Reiner and Bertolt vouched for her, or whether this was indeed her ultimate fate, especially considering that the Warriors conspicuously didn't use the Dancing Titan power during the Second Battle of Shinganshina]]. [[spoiler: She was confirmed to have been killed by Galliard in Chapter 93.]]

* CruelToBeKind: She viciously mocks Connie until he drops the subject of [[spoiler: the Titan found lying on his house]]. Later, Reiner states she did it so Connie would stop worrying and asks her to keep it up. It's debatable whether Ymir did it out of genuine kindness or because she didn't want Connie to think too much about the Titans' origins, as she is one herself but Historia seems to believe that it is the former rather then the latter.

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Ymir frequently mentions that she is a selfish person to the point that she tells Reiner and Bertolt that she may be "the shittiest person in the world" and would willingly betray anyone to survive. However, over the course of the Clash of the Titans arc, its shown that [[HiddenHeartOfGold she is a much nicer person then she lets on]] and a lot more willing to sacrifice herself for others especially Historia.

* SacrificialLamb: His death is meant to quickly establish exactly how little the trainees know about fighting titans. They go into it under the assumption it won't be a big deal and that they are totally prepared, and then half a minute later, Thomas is bit and swallowed whole. The tone change is whiplash quick, and it all starts with his demise.

* EmptyShell: Refers to herself as this in Chapter 54, saying that at least Krista Lenz had a personality and a purpose in life, while Historia Reiss doesn't and only seems to serve as kidnapping bait and a source of information. However, this is eventually [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] by her actual actions though, as she's clearly more passionate about things than she initially lets on. As she puts it herself to Eren; she may not be the savior of humanity, but she's always an ally to anybody who thinks they're not needed (thanks to her own experiences as a child).

* ImpliedTrope: PassingTheTorch. It's heavily suggested that Frieda was entertaining the idea of passing on the Crown to Historia and her frequent visits to the girl at the farm were her way of probing the waters by testing how Historia would respond to the ideologies of the Will of the First King and the history of Ymir Fritz, the Progenitor Titan. Still, there's no evidence that he wasn't searching elsewhere in the family, as Frieda had siblings aplenty, and as such, approached Historia because she was a viable candidate too.

* ForgottenFallenFriend: Averted. While he's not mentioned much in conversation, his death is a cornerstone of Jean's CharacterDevelopment and he states his desire to not disappoint Marco. His stolen gear also proves to be significant towards proving Annie's guilt as TheMole. Can be seen in the background of training flashbacks during the Clash of the Titans arc. [[spoiler: In Chapter 77, his death at the hands of the Titan Trio is what succeeds in breaking both Annie and Reiner, and Berthold notes that he intends to end the battle against humanity once and for all so nobody will have to go through an experience like that again]].
