Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) manga is brilliant, with an intriguing story and appealing characters. So, when it was adapted into an anime in 2013, it gained thousands of new fans both in Japan and worldwide. However, what really fascinated the first-time viewers were the humongous titans, as they presented more questions than answers. Where did they come from and what purpose do they hold? Why don’t they have digestive systems nor reproductive organs? While we can obviously theorize, the answers will be given in the following seasons. In turn, I suggest another question entirely: which titans stole the show? While the Armored Titan had a badass entrance, the Colossus Titan made a bigger impact. Similarly, the Female Titan flipped the show on its head, while Eren Titan had arguably the better moments. So, with that being said, I guess it’s time we list the 5 best titans of Attack on Titan: Season 1!


5. Smiling Titan

The first time the Female Titan appeared on screen, it instantly impressed, looking and acting differently from other titans. It seemed to have superior spatial awareness, coming across as knowledgable and intelligent, capable of quickly learning new things. In turn, the Female Titan was able to defend itself and even fight strategically, making it the most challenging titan that humanity had ever come across. Paired with the possibility that a human might be controlling it, the Female Titan soon became the show’s main villain. Some wanted to kill it, others wanted to capture it, yet everyone wanted to know who was behind the wheel. This hunt lead to many great moments, like when the Female Titan dismantled Eren Titan during their first encounter. So, when it’s finally revealed that Annie Leonhart’s the person behind the Female Titan, the story gets new life. However, it’s the abundance of great moments that make the titan so noteworthy, making it among the most regonizable figures from the show!


4. Armored Titan

The Armored Titan made an epic entrance, appearing out of nowhere and charging through the Shiganshina district’s inner gate. In the matter of minutes, this titan left its mark on the show, with a remarkable appearance. I mean, the sheer presence of the Armored Titan was intimidating, with a seemingly plated body and a muscular build, it separated itself from others. Not only was his introduction short and sweet, it was enough to have the viewers longing for more. However, while it’s unclear as to why he broke the wall and left, I’m excited to see this big bastard once again!


3. Eren Titan

Eren Yeager promised to destroy titans in his youth, yet lacked the power to follow through. So, when he gained the ability to transform, slaughtering titans was no longer a dream but reality. Eren Yeager became the first known human with the Titan Shifter ability, becoming the silver lining for some and the darkest cloud for others. However, he struggled to control himself, killing titans purely on instinct and going on a killing spree. That day marked the first time humans had seen one titan attack another, which was an unheard phenomenon. Slowly but surely, he gained more control of himself in titan form, finding himself as the brightest light for humanity’s survival. So, with that being said, the Eren Titan gave us a glimpse into the struggles of a Titan Shifter, with numerous fantastic action sequences.


2. Female Titan

The first time the Female Titan appeared on screen, it instantly impressed, looking and acting differently from other titans. It seemed to have superior spatial awareness, coming across as knowledgable and intelligent, capable of quickly learning new things. In turn, the Female Titan was able to defend itself and even fight strategically, making it the most challenging titan that humanity had ever come across. Paired with the possibility that a human might be controlling it, the Female Titan soon became the show’s main villain. Some wanted to kill it, others wanted to capture it, yet everyone wanted to know who was behind the wheel. This hunt lead to many great moments, like when the Female Titan dismantled Eren Titan during their first encounter. So, when it’s finally revealed that Annie Leonhart’s the person behind the Female Titan, the story gets new life. However, it’s the abundance of great moments that make the titan so noteworthy, making it among the most regonizable figures from the show!


1. Colossus Titan

On that day, humanity remembered the terror of being dominated by titans, being trapped like animals. The one responsible was the 60-meter Colossus Titan, appearing out of thin air, breaching the Shiganshina district’s wall. With a jaw-dropping frame, the Colossus Titan left a gigantic mark on the show, coming across as a horror movie villain. The way it would appear during the most unexpected hour, cause destruction and disappear, impossible to be caught or killed. Not only that, the Colossus Titan’s kick opened the flood gates, igniting the story of Eren Yeager. Keep in mind, this humongous titan forced humans to remember what lurks beyond those walls. One could even say that the Colossus Titan is a symbol, considering that he represents the suppression of humanity. With only a couple of moments, the Colossus Titan made a major impact, being responsible for some of the greatest scenes of Season 1!
