Okay, since my last message was deleted for obvious reasons (I'm fully aware of my actions), the other half was deleted as well.

Currently, we've seen a few types of Titans.
Anyone counted how many types were released up until now?

I believe the only abnormal titans we've seen so far are the Colossal and Armoured Titans, the rest have been pretty much normal titans of various sizes.

What are they?
This is hard question, from current information but is it save to call them a mindless creature? All they do was zombie like action that chasing and killing/eating human. Till current episode (eps 4) we still don't see anything what they do when no human around.

Where did they come from?
I believe there is two answer for this question first the place where they come from, or the cause that they exist in the first place. My assumption is they must be some-kind of experiment gone wild.

Why they are naked?
Well with assumption that they are mindless creature it's a direct effect of it. Let's just use average (because there is many height type) that 1 titan clothing would be same for clothing for 20 people clothing, that require a good organized farm, ranch, or even mining (for metal armor).

You don't see zombies in zombie movies shopping for new clothes right? It takes a degree of intelligence to get clothing and Titans seem to have zero intelligence to begin with.

I wouldn't say zero intelligence, you remember what the Colossal and Armor Titan did ?

Also, these Titans seem to have amazing reflexes for supposedly having no intelligence.

Nothing strange with that. Flies have quite some good reflexes, try catching one, that's not easy. At the very least they are almost as good as humans, but they are probably even more stupid than titans.

They are clearly abnormal titans, not just physically. And as we've seen in episode 5, there are other types of Deviant/Abnormal Titans. However the normal titans seem to be pretty mindless.

Reflexes and intelligence don't have much to do with each other, reactions are based on instinctual responses from the brain. Bugs have pretty quick reactions but have zero intellect.

EDIT: Eh, ninja'd xD

OK... what the FUCK? The Colossal Titan can just freaking appear with a lighting bolt? Man, an I thought it was unfair before...

Anyway... I think the Titans are controlled by some other entity. The Colossal appeared TWICE out of thin air, in front of one of those protective circles in the wall, took out the door, and then vanished. That can't be a coincidence.

Maybe they're following orders, to eat all the humans ?

The Titans are only interested in humans, seem fairly mindless, only desire to destroy humans, and are extremely hot (temperature-wise). We also don't know what's going on in the world beyond the walls, nor do we know what humanity was like before the Titans showed up. Did the author go with a total fantasy scenario, or was humanity originally as we are today and then it regressed along the "tech tree" due to Titan activity?

I'm hoping that they don't go with the Blue Submarione No. 6 scenario, where all of the hostile race of creatures was created by one man who had it out for humanity and decided to purge their existence himself.

You know, now that you mentioned regression, it suddenly struck me: Maybe it isn't the titans who are titanic, but the humans instead who have shrunk down to their present-day size. That is, the "titans" are actually about the same size as real humans in our real-life world, and are titanic only when compared to the "humans" of this make-belief world.

In other words, it's all relative. This could well be why the humans don't seem to have enough arable land to produce enough food for everyone — in absolute terms, the amount of land available to them is actually very small, too small for sustainable agriculture.

(Okay, okay, I know the theory doesn't hold water, given that we've seen familiar animals like deer that also appear small when compared to titans but, still, it's a midly amusing thought. )

My thought is that they're like some kind of semi-organic mecha (along the lines of Evas), and that people outside the walls have far superior technology and are hunting down the ones inside the walls as a sort of game.

Just going by the abnormally high body temperature, steam emission, and lack of known means of reproduction here.

Why Titans do not eat other Titans?

is that it is the same principle that humans do not eat other humans?

because the titans "looking like" the "human".... :x

Episode 6 explains that Titans do not eat anything that isn't a human. Moreover it is suggested that Titans do not eat out of necessity.

Basically you can pretty much compare them to zombies. Why do zombies eat humans only? Why do they need to eat? Why don't they eat each others?

We don't know the actual reason, but it's certain that they are somehow "programmed" to eat humans and they have no actual need to do so. It is also obvious that titans somehow can sense human presence even without a line of sight, which is why they created those bait cities.

Since sight isn't required, the fact that they themselves look vaguely human has probably very little relevance.
I'm sure the recon corps would make their expeditions disguised as some kind of animals if the apparent shape mattered at all.

...

i speculate that titans are exterminating humans because they were the bases of the mythological gods and were wiped out by humans or other titans and maybe want revenge or at least the intelligent ones which are giving out orders

This should give people the idea just how large a Titan even at their smallest to an average human.

The colossal Titan there seems to be completely disproportionate. Who the hell drew that?
