No longer true as of chapter 78.
* InformedAbility: Like Reiner, Bertholdt ranks a 9/10 in combat skills, and given that he tends to follow Reiner's lead, this would imply he did so while holding back significantly. However, he has never been seen fighting at all [[spoiler: in human form]] except a small training montage that didn't involve real Titans. There's no reason to doubt it's ''there'', we just haven't seen it.

* HealingFactor: He's shown to be able to consciously control it, enabling him to avoid blowing his cover when a Titan munches on his arm. He later heals it in an instant, once he decides to fight Eren.

He later heals it in an instant, once he decides to fight Eren. Taken to new heights when he gets his head blown off, he manages to survive by transferring his consciousness to the rest of his nervous system and even begins to grow a new one, brain and all.

* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler: The attack with the Thunder Spears blows his head off above the jaw. This apparently '''still''' isn't enough to kill him]].

* TookALevelInBadass: During the fight in Shiganshina, he finally pulls his wits together after words of encouragement from Reiner, and he noticeably becomes more confident and clear-minded, taking on the entirety of the Survey Corps singlehandedly, even holding his own against Mikasa.

* TheUnfettered: In Chapter 78, [[spoiler: he calls Armin's bluff about Annie, saying he doesn't care if Annie is left to the animals if she got herself captured. It's implied this isn't true, but he says it anyway and subtly threatens Armin with a blade while he does it. It's because he wanted to see if he could really put his priorities before his emotions, and to his own measure, he doesn't break down and cry, as he feared he would.]]

* FireForgedFriends: By chapter 72, Jean fights with Eren once again, but this time it is much more light-hearted and friendly, with the two coming across as squabbling.

* ArtEvolution[=/=]OnlySixFaces: Early in the manga, she looked almost exactly like Armin. In later chapters and the anime, she looks sufficiently different - and while the resemblance is still there, it's not quite as pronounced, and it becomes a plot point later on.

* LossOfIdentity: The crux of her character after chapter 50 (well, a version of it anyway). She's been wearing the "Krista" mask for so long, she doesn't know how she's supposed to behave, act, feel, etc, etc. It's the reason for her sudden loss of personality, as she's trying to sort out a bunch of feelings she's kept buried years, and define for herself just '''who''' Historia Reiss is. [[spoiler: The turning point for her character is when she refuses to become a Titan and eat Eren; marking the first time that she decided what was important to her and finally expressing her genuine feelings.]]

** After learning that she has the potential to be Queen, Historia refuses to accept such a position of power. However, Levi reminds her of her duty to do what is best for humanity, and forces Historia to comply regardless.

* TheAce: A villainous example. Reiner is incredibly strong and agile, lethally intelligent and has several unique powers both in human ''and'' Titan form that only he possesses. While the [[spoiler: Beast Titan (who Reiner refers to as their general) stays on one side of the wall with an army of Titans, intent on trapping the Scouts inside, Reiner is the only one within Shiganshina, trusted with fulfilling a large part of the mission.]]

** When Mikasa cuts off his left arm, brutally mangles the other one, and slashes his head and face open, this is the look he gives her. More specifically, this is the look he gave after ''throwing something at her'' to stop her from putting a sword through Bertholdt's brain--after the relevant injury, mind.

* EyeScream: [[spoiler: In ch 76 his his former comrades show up during his fight with Eren equipped with the new "Thunder Rod" weapon, a large spike loaded with explosives that can be launched like a harpoon then detonated. First thing they did upon entering the fray? They went straight for the eyes, blinding him.]]

** Some that are non-related to his identity happen in Chapter 77: [[spoiler: At the start of the chapter we see how he's responsible, along with Annie and Bertholdt, for Marco's famously gorey death in which half his head and upper body are bitten off. At the end of the manga, there's a similarly in-your-face scene of Reiner with the top half of ''his'' head removed.]] In the same chapter, [[spoiler: He jokes to Bertholdt about how anyone would mistake a stupid bastard rushing in to save them from a life-or-death situation for a handsome prince, even Annie. Ship tease for ''both'' ships aside, Bertholdt certainly does come flying in to do just that--but it's for Reiner, who just roared to summon him again.]]

** [[spoiler: Reiner's reappearance in chapter 70 opens with his Titan Form having been brutally beaten, to the point that many armored areas on his body have broken off revealing the flesh underneath, by the Beast Titan. You know in case we needed more proof that the Beast Titan is pants [[BuffySpeak crappingly]] terrifying]].

* 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]].

* LittleMissBadass: Thanks to CharacterDevelopment, she's gone from being a broken cutie to a warrior damn near as fierce Mikasa. [[spoiler: In ch. 67, when the rest of Levi's squad are prepping for the battle against her Titan-ized(?) father, Historia shows up in full battle gear. This was not what Levi ordered her to do, but when he tries berate her for it, she doesn't flinch. Her retort can basically be summed up as "I've chosen to fight. You got a problem with that?"

* MeaningfulName: "Krista Lenz" sounds a lot like "crystal lens," which can magnify objects or help see them more clearly, while "Krista" sounds like the Nordic name "Kristian" (in other words "Christian") which may link to her connection to the Wall worshippers (given them being the story's version of Christianity). Her real name, Historia, is Latin and Spanish for "history", which itself means "inquiry" or "knowledge acquired from investigation". Both make sense, since she has the authority to freely speak whatever she knows about the truth of the Walls, and our heroes are told to go ask her about them. "Riese," the German word for titan, is very similar to her surname as well.
