Being one of the most popular anime series to come out in the past five years, Attack on Titan (Shingeki No Kyojin if you’re nasty) has gathered up quite an overwhelming amount of dedicated fan art. Whether it’s Annie x Bertholdt or Eren x Levi (#LoveWins), Attack on Titan fans leave no character unpaired in their wildest creations.
However, let’s redirect our focus toward the Titans for once. This article features some of the most interesting works of art that are based on some of your favorite Titans from the show. So, here are 10 pieces of Titan fan art that you might not want to miss out on.
10 Eren &… Eren By ThunderSeth
Starting off with a stunning piece illustrated by ThunderSeth, this fan art portrays the two parallels of Eren Yeager — the human and the Titan. Evidently, it elucidates the striking similarity between the intensities of both of his forms. Be warned, the human Eren is just as fierce as his Titan form; both a force to be reckoned with. If you see those piercing green eyes, you better run.
9 The Colossal Titan From Pixiv
The Colossal Titan might just have been the scariest thing to happen to the anime realm ever since, well Orochimaru’s TRUE form (arguably the OG). Sourced from Pixiv, this meticulously detailed artwork immaculately depicts the wrath of the Colossal Titan in all his glory. And boy, does he not look happy. Undeniably, with that strong, fiery look, you just forget about his enormous size for a moment. A special shoutout to the artist for nailing those intense facial expressions. You wouldn’t in a million years want to be the object of that stern look.
8 Rogue Titan Vs Female Titan By MoshYong
The artist of this piece, Moshyong, pays homage to what was perhaps the most enticing fight in the whole Attack on Titan franchise. Who doesn’t like seeing large Titan organs flying about? Although this picture tells the story of a rogue Eren about to end Annie’s whole career, the fight went a little differently. It was totally Annie’s game up until Mikasa intervened.
However, in one way or another, it does convey the right sentiments. After Mikasa oh so coldly cut Annie’s fingers off and stood on her face, you couldn’t help but feel a little sorry for her. The distraught look on her face paired with the fact, that Eren continued to go ‘Berserk’ on what was left of her, did not help anyone feel better about her situation. Poor Annie.
7 The Socially Awkward Colossal Titan By Viktormon
After that morbid recall, let’s lighten things up a bit. In this particular artwork, the artist Viktormon shows you a glimpse of what it would be like if THE Colossal beast were just your average next-door shy boy. Well, you wouldn’t technically call him a ‘next-door’ boy, unless you live on the set of The Walking Dead. But the thought counts.
While calling out all the introverts for this piece, Viktormon hilariously illustrates the Colossal Titan worried about stepping in on somebody’s ongoing conversation. Arguably, this piece does hit a lot closer to home. We’ve all been there, even at times pretending to be invisible afterward.
6 The Colossal Titan Is A Part-Timer By Zipskyblue
If you understand the reference of this particular fanart, then that means you’ve seen what could easily be one of the funniest anime ever created — The Devil Is A Part-Timer! Zipskyblue has aptly portrayed what the Colossal Titan’s life would be like had he been the front-runner of the hilarious comedy. Fans would have never expected him to be working in a fast-food restaurant to make ends meet. The world is a cruel place indeed. But hold on a second, what is Mikasa doing there? Apparently the whole cast has chimed in on this unusual crossover.
5 Eren x Annie By Javiart Lopez
Javiart Lopez really captured the sentiments of an overwhelming number of fans with his Eren x Annie fanart. The piece depicts Annie madly latching on to Eren while he is certainly showing some mixed signals. Well, it is heavily implied in the Attack on Titan: Junior High series that Annie holds romantic feelings for Eren. So, this piece does have some amount of truth to it.
4 Stuck Babysitting By Moni158
It seems as though the artist of this piece truly understands the dedication and hard work that goes into being the caretaker of needy little children. Moni158 shows us that life as a guardian of ‘three little twerps’ is no ray of sunshine. Yes, that’s exactly what these three are to the Colossal Titan. Just take a look at Annie spurring mischief by writing ‘L’ on the Colossal Titan’s forehead. How original, Annie. As if the poor guy hasn’t gone through enough already. Unfortunately, Reiner and Eren aren’t making things any better either. Give the guy a break, it’s probably been a long day at work for him.
But one thing that you can’t deny is that this piece does really convey a very deep message — always think long and hard before having kids. Even the Colossal Titan can’t handle that life.
3 Bertholdt Consoling Annie From Pixiv
Sourced from the Pixiv gallery, this artwork shows a very strong bond between Bertholdt — AKA the Colossal Titan — and Annie, the Female Titan. Bertholdt is holding what seems to be a small rose and consoling a crying Annie. This unusual ship most probably also stemmed from the Junior High series where Bertholdt admitted to having a crush on Annie. Nonetheless, this artwork is certainly a heart-rending masterpiece
2 Armored Titan Vs Rogue Titan From Pixiv
Another masterpiece from the Pixiv gallery, it’s Eren against Reiner. This artwork masterfully depicts the tension that was in the air after Reiner and Bertholdt were unveiled as Titan Shifters. Of course, a pivotal rage-filled battle was inevitable. The intense match between Reiner and Eren set ablaze all kinds of emotions. While some of those sentiments were of empathy toward Reiner, the rest were just Eren chants. In fact, this is another Annie situation — poor Reiner.
1 “Teen” Titans By Batangbatugan
Here to end things with a little twist, it’s none other than the TEEN Titans (pun intended). Batangbatugan is the mastermind behind the stencil for this piece. So, if you have some questions about some of the choices — particularly regarding the decision to make Starfire the Colossal Titan — then you might want to direct those toward the artist. Nonetheless, it’s a stunning re-imagination of the Titans as… well, the Teen Titans. Kudos to the artist for bringing this brilliant idea to life.
