Attack on Titan is one of the most popular titles in the world of anime and manga, and all the different kinds of Titans are an integral part of its narrative. So, have you ever wondered who the strongest titans in Attack on Titan are? Of course you have! That’s why you are here; you want to know who the most powerful titans are, and I will tell you exactly that in this article!
First, its manga series and then its anime adaptation shook the entire otaku fandom. Rarely does it happen that a series creates such hype and keeps everyone on edge with each new chapter and season. Attack on Titan is one such anime worthy of all the praise.
From the first episode, it has successfully instilled chills and thrills throughout the viewers’ bodies, and it has managed to do that by the sheer terror evoked by the many Titans in the show.
The Titans have wreaked havoc by destroying humanity, and there are nine different types of Titans, excluding the mindless Titans and the Wall Titans. These Nine Titans are scarier and more powerful in one way or another and are considered the strongest. They also had previous inheritors; when one Titan user dies, its power is inherited by a new user.
In this article, we will go through all the Nine Titans introduced in the series and rank them based on their power!
Note: I am excluding the Wall Titans here because they haven’t done much, and their power is only used to cause “the Rumbling” around the world!
Strongest Titans in Attack on Titan (2023)
9. Cart Titan
The Nine Titans are feared by their name only, but when one sees them in action, i.e., smashing people, it is scarier. Being a Titan means being extra large, powerful, and having a threatening demeanor. Practically, only these factors would make them unbeatable. But if a Titan has more endurance and can’t easily get tired, it will bring no good to humanity.
Cart Titan is believed to have a high level of endurance that enables it to stay on the battlefields or on missions for a longer period without rest. It might not be the best fighter, but it doesn’t change the fact that these creatures are scary and deadly.
If you are an AOT fan, then you might be familiar with Pieck Finger being the Cart Titan. This Titan, unlike the others, walks on both arms and legs, which is why its form is named Quadrupedal. The Cart Titan carries the weapons, supplies, and troops, which makes it pretty useful. It is probably called “Cart” for this specific reason, as it can carry a lot of stuff.
8. Jaw Titan
As the name suggests, this Titan has one of the strongest jaws, and it’s nearly impossible to survive after being attacked by the Jaw Titan. Even though it is a Titan like any other, its power lies in its jaws and is more lethal than many, making it one of the strongest Titans in Attack on Titan.
It will instantly tear apart anyone into pieces. Jaw Titan is in size comparatively, which gives it a benefit above the others, and that’s its speed. It is very swift in the running and as well as ripping apart the targets.
There have been 4 different inheritors of the Jaw Titan, and Falco Grice is the latest one. Unlike the previous inheritors, Falco unlocked the Jaw Titan’s flying ability. These flying abilities and bird-like characteristics came from the spinal fluid of the Beast Titan that Falco got from Zeke Yeager.
One can easily get the idea of the strength of its jaws by the fact that it can easily destroy the crystal shell created by a War Hammer Titan. Hence, no matter how strong the defense is, Jaw Titan can turn it into pieces thanks to its strong jaws.
7. Female Titan
Female Titan is one of a kind. One may think that a female titan may not be as strong as others, but it is a delusion. The Female Titan has many abilities, but its greatest assets are hardening the skin, high mobility, and endurance.
Her ability to harden her skin saves her from many attacks and, at the same time, makes her body a strong weapon. This ability made her earn the name of a double-edged sword. The same goes for all the previous inheritors of the Female Titan.
Another powerful ability of the Titan is that it can call the other Pure Titans by screaming. Annie, in her Titan form, gave a tough competition to Eren in his Attack Titan form and managed to surprise him with her martial art skills. Defeating Eren Yeager in his titan form and capturing him is an achievement! Female Titan does have this honor; although things change later, this particular titan does get praise.
6. Colossal Titan
As the name makes one guess, the Colossal Titan is huge and worthy of being one of the strongest Titans in Attack on Titan. I am pretty sure that the AOT fans can feel the goosebumps by only imagining the sight of Colossal Titan arriving. Though the attacks are powerful and the Titan is very strong, there is also a disadvantage. When it comes to speed, Colossal Titan is far behind many of its kind. Its immense size makes it slower than others.
We have seen Armin as a Colossal Titan, causing havoc during his transformation because of the immense heat release. Releasing heat for a Titan is pretty common during transformation, but the transformation of the Colossal Titan is capable of destroying everything around it.
Those who have watched the anime are very familiar with the fact that all the Titans emit heat. Still, the heat is just unbelievable when it comes to the Colossal Titan. Besides, it can use steam as a tactic and strategy to keep the opponent away from its nape.
5. Armored Titan
Titans are creatures of ultimate power, and they wreak havoc with their very existence. They don’t require a weapon or extra abilities. To top it off, their different types, with additional factors like jaws and armored skin, enable them to be the pinnacle of power.
Armored Titan is called Armored because its hardened armored skin is wrapped around its body. It’s very beneficial in defense, as it saves the Titan from massive injuries. The armor is capable of taking the blow from the canon.
One of the reasons it is ranked above the Colossal Titan is its defensive and offensive stature. The Armored Titan can survive in the heat of Colossal’s deadliest transformation because of this armor. And unlike the Colossal Titan, the Armored Titan isn’t very slow, as it can run much faster and put up a great fight against other powerful Titans.
4. Beast Titan
All Titans are beastly in nature because they eat humans like animals. Still, there is a special kind of Titan that even looks like a “beast.” Saying they are beasts among beasts won’t be a wrong statement.
The Beast Titan is similar to a beast and shows the appearance and traits of animals, varying from user to user. Not all the Titans appear identical; some Beast Titans appear like apes, dinosaurs, snakes, birds, etc. Zeke was the Beast Titan, and he had ape-like physical attributes.
Beast Titan also has a special power unique to it, it can feed its spinal fluid to other humans and turn them into Pure Titans with just a scream. Zeke could transform the Subjects of Ymir into titans because his blood was royal. He could also control the Pure Titans that he created and make them follow his orders, all thanks to his royal blood. This ability alone makes it pretty scary and deserving to be among the top of the strongest Titans in Attack on Titan!
3. Attack Titan
Well, this titan needs no introduction; Attack Titan is the Titan form of Eren Yeager. Like most Titans, Attack Titan can see the memories of the past inheritors of Attack Titan, but it also has a unique ability to see the memories of the future inheritors of the Titan as well.
As the name suggests, it’s mainly used for being offensive, and we have seen Eren often being offensive by attacking the opponents. And since its main purpose is to fight its opponents, it doesn’t just have physical power, it also has high endurance, high regeneration, and insane flexibility that’s missing in other Titan forms.
This Titan is also known as a freedom fighter; it always fights for freedom and keeps on moving forward with the help of all the memories of its past and future inheritors.
2. War Hammer Titan
Now comes the War Hammer Titan, which has the power to create weaponized structures, and the hammer is the specialized one. Not that a Titan needs a weapon, but still, War Hammer Titan is one of its classes, making it one of the strongest Titans in Attack on Titan.
These weapons are made from its own hardened flesh and used to attack its opponents. The user of this Titan is usually enveloped in a crystal casing that is outside the Titan’s body, unlike all the other Titans.
Lara Tybur, a name every AOT fan is familiar with, became the inheritor of War Hammer Titan. Additionally, Eren, after defeating Lara, inherited the power of the War Hammer Titan. The appearance of the War Hammer Titan was unique as compared to others.
Considering its appearance, this Titan doesn’t give off a scary vibe. On the contrary, it looks rather cool; still, it is a Titan and deadly through and through. Because of the ability to create powerful weapons, its rank is much higher than the others.
1. Founding Titan
The most awaited one on the list, without a doubt, is the Founding Titan. It is the original Titan, the most powerful, and the one that can control all the other Titans.
The Founding Titan can create and control all the other Titans, it can turn Subjects of Ymir into Titans and even alter their memories and bodies. But it only works if the inheritor of the Founding Titan is of royal blood or is in contact with a person or Titan of royal blood. The inheritor of the Titan doesn’t require transforming into a Titan to control the others; they could do so by staying in their human form.
Telepathic communication is another remarkable ability of the Founding Titan, and it can be used to pass a message to all the Subjects of Ymir at the same time. Similar to the ability of the Attack Titan, who could see the present and future, The Founding Titan can also simultaneously see the past, present, and future.
In short, there is a long list of powers and strengths of the Founding Titans that no other Titan can match! Ymir Fritz was the first Titan in history and became the Founding Titan as a result. By the end of the series, this Titan was inherited by Eren Yeager, who used its power to awaken all the Wall Titans and use them to initiate “The Rumbling.”
