15 Things You Didn’t Know About The Warrior Unit From ‘Attack On Titan’

List Rules
Vote up the coolest facts about the Eldian Warrior Unit.

The lastest seasons of Attack on Titan have introduced the Eldian Warrior Unit. This group of soldiers hopes to inherit Titans that they can use to fight on behalf of their nation, Marley. Successful warrior candidates can gain citizenship and respect for themselves and their families, even though they're Eldians, a group which the Marleyans openly discriminate against. 

If you love Attack on Titan trivia, you might be interested in some things you didn't know about the Eldian Warriors. Here's one unexpected fact: Pieck's original design was a middle-aged man named Oliver. Also, did you know that Bertholdt is the only character whose human form was created after his Titan form?

    If you've ever wondered how Reiner got to be so muscular, you might have thought it was because of the time he spent in the 104th Training Corps. But according the Attack on Titan Character Encyclopedia, it's actually a trait he inherited from his father. 

    Speaking of his built body, Isayama compared him to people he sees as naturally strong, such as hammer thrower and sports scientist Koji Murofushi, MMA fighter Fedor Emelianenko and football player Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, AKA Hulk.

    Here's a cool detail you might have missed: During a flashback to his childhood, Zeke is seen playing with a long-armed stuffed monkey. This foreshadows his eventual Beast Titan form.

    Also, this toy looks exactly the same as one that used to belong to Tom Ksaver's son.

    This one is kind of adorable. According to a Q&A in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, Annie can often be found talking in her sleep.

    Rather than talking about something traumatic or revealing secrets, she says things like "woosh!" while dreaming about practicing kicks.

    In most cases, Isayama designs human characters first, and then decides on their Titan form after that. Bertholdt is an exception - Isayama designed the Colossal Titan first, and then worked backwards to get to Bertholdt.

    To come up with Betholdt's design, he asked himself this question: "What kind of character would I get if the somehow weakly and docile Colossal Titan was turned into a person?"

    Zeke can seem pretty intimadating, but he does have a mundane weakness - he can't handle spicy foods.

    That said, Marley's cuisine is unlikely to be especially spicy in the first place - so maybe that would change if he got used to it?

    Reiner Is Isayama's Favorite Character

    Though Isayama named Jean Kirstein as his favorite character in earlier interviews, he currently names Reiner as his favorite. 

    His characters agree with him - during a Q&A, Isayama revealed that Reiner was the most popular boy amongst the 104th cadets. We're guessing they've changed their opinion of him by this point, but maybe his popularity carries over into the Warrior Unit.
