I wonder about that. Ymir and her people seems to have different culture (writing) and it's clear human-tinas have clear goal on mind. My theory is that human-titans are original shapeshifting clan and humans all along and zombie-titans are forcefuly transformed one.

There's at least two titan factions, though. So there isn't a single goal among them.

Realy? If you mean Ymir it looked like to me more like she just get through Heel face turn than anything else.

Anyway I don't think it's stretching claim that all named titans share same language.

It didn't seem like Reiner could read the words on the canned food and Ymir could. He could be lying of course, but I think it is more likely he was speaking the truth.

She ate Ryner's friend, and he didn't know it till she transformed. And, yes, there's the language thing.

And there's the ape Titan - he didn't know what 3D gear was, while obviously Ymir, Annie, Ryner and Bertholt know damn well what it is and how it's used.

I dont think human--titans would normally eat other humans... so i think when Ymir ate Reiner's friend she was crazed, berserk, whatever you wanna call it. Like how Eren attacked Mikasa when he transformed.

Though its really interesting that Ymir can talk in her titan form and the others cant. Maybe it means she is some kind of titan royalty... the regular titans worship her or atleast some of them.

So the popular theory here is

Titans are just a really, really, ugly case of were-kind?
Complete with berserking, perpetual hunger, and some individuals in control?

More like zombification, since as far as we know unless you're one of the 'intelligent' ones there's no going back.

I've seen it as zombification since the very start, akin to what you'd find in games like Resident Evil. Most people get turned into mindless man-eating drones by the virus (=most titans), others can retain their intellect and evolve further (Bert, Reiner, etc...). Titans are really just very big zombies.

Very big zombies with superpowers.

I mean even the weakest of them is at least on par with Wolverine for what concerns fast healing.

Thing is, zombies don't turn back to human and hide among them. Were-kind do.
Although their demeanor is very zombie-like.

Are Annie and Ymir the only female titans we have seen? If this is true I wonder why there are so few female titans. Maybe they are kept out of the fighting because they are more important than the male titans. This could be one reason why Ymir was being worshiped by that on titan in the flashback, but I also expect she is something like royalty to them.

Can Ymir even be called a female titan?

Edit : she's a girl yes but her titan form is a freaking goblin-like monster

Here is some comparison material.

Eren

Annie

Ymir

My theory was that female titans had a specific strip pattern on there breasts, but there are many anomalies and to few female titans to confirm this theory.

If this theory was true, this titan could potentially be a female:

Possible Female Titan?

One of the anomalies is Connie's mother, who looks very different compared to the other subject, but this could be becomes she is a different type of titan, the forcefully turned human to zombie titan or because her transformation is incomplete.

Hmm, back when i was reading the manga i took notice that sometimes the regular titans are deformed. Having too big/too small legs, arms, head... And some are so badly deformed that it looks like they cant even use them, Connie's mother being an extreme case of that. I especially remember seeing a titan with really thin arms that surely were useless... (like a t-rex lol) i tried to search for a picture but cant remember what chapter it was in.


Oh and, i have seen some adorable and funny fanart of Ymirs titan mode x christa but i cant post it in the fanart thread because of spoilers... It was the cutest thing too! And yes she looks like a troll. xD

There are few regular titans that look female. I think there are two of them during the part where they need to retrieve the gas from the besieged guard tower.
