Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) - The Titans - NO SPOILERS

By request, a discussion thread for the Titans. What are they? Where did they come from? Why are they naked? Thrilling discussion to be had by all, surely.

Keep this thread spoiler free. No hints, suggestions, or implications. No manga discussion, except when comparing events that have already happened in the anime.


Enjoy!

Firstly, i just don't get why some people on MAL and ANN forum referring Titan who ate Eren's mother as "Female Titan". Does the concept of gender even exist for them? They all just look the same for me (sans the colossal and armored type), and it's not like we have to flip their skirt and look what's inside to know that

It's understandable that they would refer to the Titan as such considering the hair and overall facial structure of that Titan was pretty effeminate. Without any sexual organs to differentiate them I guess it's only natural people would come to that conclusion regardless of whether or not biological sex even applies to Titans.

They are pure flesh which just releases pure force attacks.
Practically, they are huge killing chunks, and you do not need cloathes for that.

I say its Male.. coz if its female... we'll see a lot of "lighting" and "smoke" around her private parts... and that's censorship....

I see a lot of smaller Titans. Could these be "children", or are they simply dwarf Titans (talk about oxymorons!)?

Also, that one Titan who seems to be grabbing his own head in pain sure gets around a lot in Episode 2.

Well we learn that titans don't have sexual organs so they can't reproduce. I wonder it they are plant like because they get energy from the sun and can heal themselves.

This made me laugh big time.
But you do have a point, maybe they split into two or more smaller Titans and then later grow bigger again by gaining more cells.
Interesting.

So...if humanity was behind the walls for 100 years, what were the Titans eating during that time, other than the occasional Scouting Legion member?

Wait, are you referring to how ameba reproduce? It would be terrifying to see them while doing so

Well, you see, one of the genres is Horror, so everything should be expected. xD

Better delete that before the mods see it, spoilers (whether tagged or not) aren't allowed in here.

Done and done.
I just really wanted to point that out, but rules come first.

Actually...we haven't really seen a female titan in the anime yet, I believe.

No, we haven't...

The Titans all look like they're missing reproductive parts so that makes me wonder how they managed to have a bunch of them spring up in the first place without anyone's notice.

The strange dream Eren had about his father than waking up with the Key even though his father had it when he left was quite confusing.

I think the one who ate Eren's mom was one. She had more curves and was less bulky than the other titans.

No, it was male...just had long hair and was less bulkier.
