Can someone change the entire section about Eren's relationships? I've actually found some wrong information in it. In fact, the section looks like it was written by some fangirl who has no regard for the canon.
For example, Mikasa is not Eren's adoptive sister (as it was never mentioned whether she was legally adopted by the Jaeger household). A better term would be 'foster sister.'
'Despite this, he will attack anyone and anything that threatens Mikasa, even meeting a punch from a 14 m class Titan bare-handed to simply protect her.'
This information is wrong too. Eren never meant to protect Mikasa. He was mindless during that time, with only one fixed purpose - to kill all the Titans.
'Armin is Eren's closest friend, who inspired him to dream of the world beyond the Walls (and in doing so, became partially responsible for motivating him to join the Survey Corps).'
Eren joined the Survey Corps because he wanted to take revenge on the Titans. Although during their childhood Eren wanted to join them because of what Armin made him dream, he had evidently forgotten about it (as stated in ch. 82-84; really you can look it up though I forgot the specific ch.)
'As Eren spent more time with Levi and witnessed how harsh he can be to his peers, he started to dislike him enough to laugh at and encourage the notion of punching Levi in the face. His admiration, however, has somewhat damaged Eren's self confidence due to Levi's brusque insults, going as far as to call himself "shitty brat" when talking about his worth.'
Now, this one is completely false. Eren was afraid of Levi; he also greatly admired him. But he never stated that he disliked Levi. He never said that he wanted to punch his superior. The references also lead to different chapters - the first leading to Historia being crowned and the second leading to a conversation between Eren and Armin. Moreover, Eren knows that though Levi can be brutal with his insults, he does not mean it. Petra had already told him beforehand not to mind his crude words.
Eren did not initially interact with Historia very much, and had in fact secretly disliked her because he felt she was a phony.
He does not dislike Historia. During their trainee days, Historia did not stand out too much and so Eren did not pay any attention to her.
He was only further infuriated by Bertolt's cold response, and is now bent on making his death as miserable and painful as possible.
Bertolt is already dead.
It's 'Sawney,' not 'Sonny.' Please don't be guided by subtitles. Check up historical facts - Sawney Bean and his family were infamous during the reign of King James I
and was saddened by the deaths of the Titan test subjects (although he still finds her weird, especially after she kept him up the entirety of one night).
He was neither saddened nor did he find Hange weird.
- About Mikasa: Official guidebook says the Yeagers adopted Mikasa.
- About the Smiling Titan: Before Eren punched the Smiling Titan, Mikasa thanked him for "teaching [her] how to live", and for "wrapping [his] scarf around [her]" when they first met. Eren then promised that he would continue to wrap the scarf around her again and again forever, and the punched the Smiling Titan. He was trying to protect Mikasa.
- About Armin: Armin and his dream were partially responsible for Eren's desire to join the Survey Corps and see the outside world, no question about it.
- About Levi: Eren never said he wanted to punch Levi, but he said it would be funny if Historia did. He was also shown at the end of the Uprising arc repeatedly criticizing himself for being useless. He obviously took some of Levi's criticisms to heart.
- About Historia: Eren stated that he disliked Historia during their Trainee days.
- About Bertolt: The statement is still true, it just needs to be rewritten to reflect Bertolt's status.
- About Sonny: The wiki uses the manga's spelling.
- About Hange: "Saddened" might not be the right word, but he recognized that humanity had lost two valuable test subjects. And yes, he does find Hange weird.--Neetaku (talk) 17:57, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
- Eren punched the Smiling Titan out of fury. And also partially to encourage himself and Mikasa.But I apologise for my previous comment regarding this because I thought it was referring to that time when Eren first turned into a Titan in the Battle of Trost arc.
- Armin: Yes, he as a child wanted to join the Survey Corps because of Armin's stories. But he forgot about it and in the end only joined the Legion for personal reasons.
- Levi: He said that it would be funny if Historia punched him as Levi was bullying Historia into being king. Eren thought it would be amusing if someone as weak-hearted as her stood up against Levi. He didn't say it because he wanted Levi punched.
- Historia: He said that he didn't like her very much, not a complete negative. It would be clearer if you start reading the original Japanese manga. And in Japan, such words usually points at neutrality.
- About Sawney, the wiki editors, the subtitle translators are wrong. Hajime was clearly referring to Sawney Bean. The Japanese spelling shows this too. Fact is fact, you can't change it.
- Hange: He found her outlandish.
Someone please change the description about Eren, he's my favorite character and when I see his description.. well, no words can express my anger..

Can we get some continuity with the surname? I mean, my personal preference would be to go with Jaeger, since I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be Jaeger as in hunter - Yeager just seems to be a poor romanisation of a japan-ised (if there's a proper word for this, I forget it) version of Jaeger - would it not make more sense to stick with the german word that it came from? Anyways, I digress; whether Yeager or Jaeger is used, we can't have both in the same article, it's just messy. 184.108.40.206 01:51, June 9, 2013 (UTC)
- Agreed. Jaeger makes a thousant times more sense. Even right there on the trivia, a reference to Jager, the word for hunter. For people unfamilar with Gemran, the letter J is pronounced as Y. Eren is apparently supposed to be of German origin. Yeager is not a true German surname. It's a version of Jager / Jaeger transcribed for immgirants preferring to have their surname misspelled rather than mispronounced. Essentially, it is American, not German, and very uncommon, to boot. My own real life surname suffered the same changes with immigration to the US from Germany, actually. Jaeger or even Jäger would make much more sense, all things considered. There's no reason for it to be Yeager. The ugliest titan (talk) 23:22, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately, at this point I don't think it's about our preferences. While I'd prefer Jaeger myself as well, we have been provided with Yeager from what seems to be an official source and thus it means that they intended it to be that way, even if it makes no sense when we look at it from German's point of view.09:33, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
Kondansha USA, which is the so-called "official source" is not really a deciding factor... Sure they can use "Yeager" in their dubs, but is that really enough to make it "official"? They are official when it comes to the localized American version of Attack on Titan, but not to the original Japanease or the rest of the world. Also don't forget how the Americans like to "americanize" names all the time. I think the Japanease opening theme is way more "official" for this case and it really strongly suggest that the name is supposed to be Jäger. So I'd really like someone to explain how a company that is merely doing localizations for an anime adaption(!) of a manga to be called an official source for both the original manga and the Japanease anime. Of course if you find me a (legit) source from the Mangaka that without a doubt states that Eren's Surname is "Yeager" then I will accept it. But to use Kodansha USA alone as a source is not enough.
I completely agree with your view on Kodansha's translations, however, in this case, they weren't the source for this name change. Check this for more info 15:01, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
Should be official SnK twitter17:40, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
I ment, is it the "official manga twitter" or the "official anime twitter"? I know this looks like nitpicking, but after seeing that most of the cast have German names, it seem very strange if the protagonist suddenly has an americanized name. Espacially if you consider that the first opening played around with the word "Jäger" so much, it makes me very sceptical about Eren's Surname being "Yeager". Well for me personally any source about Eren's name that was not created by Hajime Isayama himself or evidently asked by him to create, is void. But of course if the admins of the SnK-wikia have a different stance about that, then there is nothing i can do.
I believe it is the website for manga, that twitter profile contains a link to this website, the anime website is this one. Also, once again I completely agree that unless it's done by Isayama, I wouldn't consider it official but at this point all we have it that tweet, so unless it's somehow proven/decided that it's incorrect, we're gonna have to keep Yeager. 18:58, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
OK, I found something interesting: On a radar chart on crunchyroll's website, you can clearly see the name "Jäger". Crunchyroll states the charts are supposed to be part of a "guidebook" and yaraon is the suposed source for the picture scans and from then on everything is in Japanease, so I am at a dead end. I would be glad if someone could backtrack the source a bit further, so we have clarity regarding these radar charts. Also as further down in this discussion is visible, these charts contradict the stats we have on this wikia, so I'd also like someone to check that as well. NeoSuperior (talk) 16:21, July 26, 2013 (UTC)
As far as the stats go, I've seen them being edited numerous times by random anons so I don't think I'd be far from truth if I said that they had edited them to their likings. And yay, another name we can go with. T_T Why can't just the manga authors officially provide the romanizations for us. Would make our lives easier. Anyway, is that really from 'official guidebook' written by the author? This needs checking, I wish I knew enough Japanese to do that... Either way, we need to each some consensus otherwise this will go on as a never ending story.18:11, July 26, 2013 (UTC)
I couldn't wait for someone to start translating so I went ahead and put the content of the tweet that started this whole disaster
"進撃キャラの英語表記。よく質問をいただくので、お答えします。「Eren Yeager」「Mikasa Ackerman」「Armin Arlert」「Levi」でございます。"
into google translate, which returned this:
"English representation of the character advance. So get a good question, I answer. "Eren Yeager," "Mikasa Ackerman", "Armin Arlert" there is "Levi"'''''."
Of course since this is just google translate, I cannot trust it completely, but according to this, he could just be quoting the "English version" (the manga is being released in the USA since 2012 and this tweet was done in May 2013, but the Japanease people maybe didn't know what was used in the official American translation then and I think it is very unlikely that he would officially contradict the American localisation), which would lead us back to the question, is Kodansha USA alone a valid source? Of course it is only possible to reason like that if you use my interpretation of that tweet, but until we get a 1:1 translation of that tweet (and of the yaraon page as well), we are stuck at this point.
I also thought about why Kodansha USA would want to change the name if it actually was "Jäger" aside from "simply americanizing it", and I actually found a valid reason! You could say it is exactly the same reason, why the name "Yeager" was invented at all! It was invented because immigrants from Germany to USA would rather have their names misspellled than mispronounced. The same could be the case here. Since they only tranlate the manga (the anime didn't even exist yet when the first volume was released in the USA), the readers could have easily mispronounced "Jäger" as Jagger or something alike. This wouldn't have been a problem if it was an anime, as the audience could easily hear the pronunciation then, but with a manga that is not possible.
Also regarding "Jäger" being a new possibility: It is actually not. Jaeger and Jäger are essentially the same in German. Their pronunciation is identical. You usually write "Jäger", but in some cases, for example if you don't have a qwertz-keyboard that includes the letter "ä", or when you solve a crossword puzzle, then you write "Jaeger". That is also the case with any other word that uses "ä" and it also applies to "ö" which becomes "oe", or "ü" which becomes "ue".
Actually, it technically is a new possibility as it's a different spelling after all. Whether it's Jäger, Jaeger or Yeager, they're all pronounced the same and mean the same, that being イェーガー.
About your google translation, it can be interpreted in many ways, it may as well be saying that it is indeed the official spelling. Whether the romanization came from Kodansha or Isayama himself doesn't seem to be mentioned in the post, though.
So, let me summarize what we have; Kodansha and this Twitter post claims Yeager to be the correct one, while Jaeger (or Jäger) has been widely accepted as his surname by fans, it is being used in non-fansubs (Crunchyroll) and manga scanslations. It also makes more sense German-wise, however, we shouldn't base things on this as foreign people tend to mis-use other foreign languages; I'm looking at you Tite Kubo and your oh-so-awesome English Bleach chapter titles that made no sense whatsoever, apparently the author just thought it sounded cool. What I'm saying is that Yeager may be official the same way as the German lyrics of the anime opening are gramatically incorrect.
So yeah.23:40, July 26, 2013 (UTC)
Human translation of the tweet (Done by me):
"The English notation of Shingeki characters. I often get asked this qustion. My answer is, 'Eren Yeager', 'Mikasa Ackerman', 'Armin Arlelt' and 'Levi'."
On a side note. I wonder, if someone sends him a tweet informing him of the correct spelling of Jäger, would he change it. 220.127.116.11 03:11, August 8, 2013 (UTC)
- Something interesting that I found in the 1st opening theme's full version: "[...]Jouheki no sono kanata emono o hofuru Jäger[...]Ubawareta sono chihei sekai o nozomu Eren[...]". I guess at least REVO considers the right spelling to be Eren Jäger. I still have not seen anyone deny the possibility that Isayama's Editor was simply telling the Japanease people what notation is used in the English Kodansha translation, which if you imagined it being about Pokemon could mean "Ash Ketchum is the English notation of Satoshi". Do you understand what I mean? It can be interpreted either way. Of course I could be horribly wrong as well and REVO is wrong and like Mikos suggested, the names are a failure of an attempt at "Gerpanease" by Isayama. NeoSuperior (talk) 14:50, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
- Yeager is used by several sources that can be considered official, including the official SnK Twitter and Kodansha. It shouldn't be disregarded simply because people think the translation is wrong. That is how they translated it and is thus the official translation.
- To be fair, "Yeager" is just the American variation of Jaeger, which is derived from Jäger, so it's not like anything huge was lost by using that spelling. DementedP (talk) 19:32, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
- Not sure if you've noticed but Eren is most likely if not clearly German and not of any English speaking country (i.e US and UK). Moreover, we've said this in the past but we use FUNimation translations due to the fact Kondansha have been proven to be unreliable with names it the past (mainly the name of Wall Rose which varies from Rosa to Rosaline in different volumes). So PLEASE stop renaming the page. Eren Jäger is final unless proven otherwise by FUNimation or Isayama himself.
- That is so stupid. You're saying FUNimation is more qualified than the official licensor of Attack on Titan, Kodansha, as well as the official twitter. This is the same as the people who refuse to call the series "Attack on Titan" and call it "The Eotena Assault" and use "Eoten" instead of "Titan", because they think Isayama isn't qualified to choose the name.
- Bentheechidna (talk) 16:19, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
- Its not stupid, I'd rather Yeager is the English version of Jäger. Like with the anime openings and most other surnames used in the wiki (see Sasha and Erwin) we like to stick the the German translation considering that's where they're from. And of course I trust FUNimation more than Kodansha. Reason being they have the licence for it, moreover, Kodansha have been proven to be unreliable in the past.
Eren's Battle Skills do not match upto Annie's, Mikasa's or Reiner's. He shouldn't be given a 10/10 in battle skill.
Those are official stats, from what I understand. And besides that, he is stated to have the best hand-to-hand combat skills out of the entire class. He's defeated Annie and Reiner in battle, and.....well...Mikasa is second only to Levi in the cast. Harostar (talk) 07:09, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
Those are official stats, and they give Eren a 9 out of 10 in Battle Skills/Combat (the same rating as Reiner, Bertholdt and Jean). Annie and Mikasa are the only once in the 104th who have a 10 out of 10 in Battle skills.
Eren ranking in Intelligence is 3/10.
I'm referring to Eren, as the discussion concerned his Battle Skill rank. In all three of his fights against other Shifters, he managed to best them to the extent that they were forced to pull out various tricks/cheat to survive.
"Official" name to Eren's Titan.
In an event in Japan, Eren's titan got an "official" name, given by the Manga's writer, Hajime Isayama.
He is now to be reffered to as "Power Titan", due to the raw power and resilience of that form.
Interviewer: I personally like the fact that some titans have their specific denominations, it makes them look even more epic.
Hajime Isayama: Yes. Although the visuals are what discern them the most, "Armor Titan" sounds much more like something they would come up with.
IT: However, there's a titan that still has no specific name, Eren's. Do you have any denominations to share?
HI: I thought about naming him "Hero Titan", but that is a little too enthusiastic and off tone for a titan that's been defeated so many times (laughs). I like calling him "Power Titan" better, because his attacks are really strong and he resists a lot of blows, too.
IT: So, are we also allowed to refer to him as "Power Titan"? Or is that something you'd like to keep as your personal nickname?
HI: It sounds a lot better than Eren Titan (Laugh), so go right ahead!
May I know your source for this? ;o Could be used as a reference.08:37, July 3, 2013 (UTC)
Aggression25: This is what confuses me a little about Eren's Titan form. He's referred to as the Rogue Titan, yet no one in the anime called him that and what of the manga, which I've hardly seen? Some fanfiction I've looked at has him addressed by the narrator as the Rogue Titan, but Eren's page didn't have him addressed as such. The other Titan Shifters are given names/designations to their Titan forms (Colossal, Armored, Female, etc.), but not Eren, even though the pages addressing Titans have him referred to as the Rogue for his unique behavior. What's up with that? --Aggression25 (talk) 19:03, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
You can consult our Canon Policy. We use the information provided by canon sources, and the anime is non-canon. I don't remember if Eren is referred to as the Rogue Titan in the manga or another canon source, so unless we have a reference for that, we can't use that name. On the contrary, Bertolt, Reiner, Annie and Ymir's Titan forms are named in the manga, so we can use those names.--Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 19:34, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
If Eren's dad ate Frieda, thus fusing the Attack and Founding Titan's powers together, what does it make it then...? "The Founding Attack Titan"...? --TheBlackDemon1996 (talk) 19:14, June 17, 2017 (UTC)
Eren's passion on his Statistics
When I was looking at Eren's Statistics onhttp://indulging-inaccuracy.tumblr.com/post/49673140889/official-stats-taken-from-the-character-guide, his passion doesn't seem to pass beyond the line it seems similar for instance looking at Mikasa's combat. If this is the case should Eren have is passion be 10/10 instead of 12/10. I think that 12/10 seems a bit off with Eren.Jennicious (talk) 08:37, October 1, 2013 (UTC)
- You are absolutely right. The user San&Ashitaka vandalised the page without anyone noticing. That user also changed Eren's "teamwork" from 5 to 4. I'll revise that. NeoSuperior (talk) 11:48, October 1, 2013 (UTC)
--- SPOILERS FOR CHAPTER 50! ---
--- SPOILERS, AGAIN, SPOILERS ---
--- LOOK OUT, PEEPS ---
--- SPOILERS ARE GO ---
--- LOOK OUT ---
Ignoring the no spoilers-rule, I believe there are some errors in this article. It doesn't seem like Eren is aware of his ability to command titans as of yet. He activated it through throwing strong emotions against Smiling Titan and R&B, so it seems more like a lucky shot than something he intended to do. Furthermore, the article states that it is unknown whether shifters are affected or not, but seeing that Ymir came to the rescue of R&B after they were swarmed by titans, it's safe to assume that they only notice the command. They showed no inclining to attack what Eren targeted two out of two times, so I suggest we change the article accordingly.
The english translation of the chapter is out, so we're all good on the policy!
That said, the first is fair enough. It seemed to me like intentional, but on second thought there's room for questioning until they discuss it further in the chapter.
Concerning other Shifters and the power, I believe what is stated is accurate. We do not know the full extent of his power, and so cannot state firmly in one direction or another. We know that they sense and react to it, but we do not know whether they are completely immune to it or simply able to resist because Eren does not have strength/control yet.
- I don't think he can, seeing as he doesn't have control over the Armored Titan and Annie being mentally stronger than Reiner. hfc2X 01:20, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
- Isayama said they had a relationship of mutual respect for each other. And beware, don't vandalize other people's comments, or it may get you blocked. hfc2X 17:59, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Just wanted to make a quick post about Eren's stats. I personally believe Eren stats were quite undermined when his skillset was being assessed. I agree with some of the stats however, with recent chapters I believe a change to his stats are in order. Firstly his strategy rating being at a mere 3 is ridicoulous, sure he can be hothead and quick to act at some points in the series, however he does show resolve and strategic thinking in multiple occasions (such as when fighting Reiner in his Armored titan mode, realising he can't beat him by brute force and uses submisive moves he learned whilst training at the acadamey from Annie) His Strategy score should be atleast a solid 7ish.
Now moving on from strategy I honestly beleive that his battleskill should be at 10, sure some might say that Mikasa's battle skill is at 10 and she kicks ass, which i totally agree with! However, Eren hasn't had that may oppurtunities to show off his Battleskill and when he has whether that be the few times with his 3dm gear or in his titan form he's clearly shown to be a force to be reckoned with. Furthur more giving him the same score as Jean and Reiner is ridicoulos being he's clearly beaten them in hand to hand combat in multiple occusians throughout the series.
Also please insert Titan stats on Eren's page, Almost everyother shifter has them except him and would love to see how he scores against the rest of the shifters.
Feel free to leave opinions / feedback!
- These stats were taken from an official source, they weren't made up. Qazqaz555 21:48, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
- Fairenough however this "official source" which you've stated though is from several months ago, making it quite outdated. Not to mention that there are multiple sources that I have seen, that all deem themselves official and vary quite abit. Also would like the implementation of Eren's Titan stats on his page.
- GVASS (talk) 22:05, November 5, 2013 (UTC)GVASS
Doesn't matter, it is from official guidebook so until we are given new stats, the current ones will be kept. Also, there are no stats for Eren's Titan.22:09, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
I have a question relating to Eren's skill. It says he had the best scores for hand to hand combat out of the 104th trainees. Is that true o.o? I'm pretty sure Mikasa and Annie are much better fighters than him, is this stated in the manga or what?
22.214.171.124 06:12, November 12, 2013 (UTC)anon
Sort of. What you're recalling is one of Jean and Eren's fights, where Reiner shouts that Eren scored the best in hand-to-hand combat out of all of them.
....then Mikasa tosses Eren over her shoulder and Reiner goes, "No, wait, maybe it was Mikasa?"
It's primarily used as a gag, so we're not sure who graduated with the best score in any individual test.
Well it's written on Eren's ability section so I kind of thought it was misleading since it wasn't clearly shown in the manga. And its pretty obvious Mikasa could easily win against him. Anyway thanks for replying.

Expand and Update Eren's Abilities
Hello. I was wondering whether it would be possible to expand and update Eren's abilities, more specifically the Titan part of them. A good example to follow would be Annie Leonhart's Titan powers which have clearly listed specific abilities in a readable fashion. I already have some ideas, however, the page is locked... SideEdger (talk) 04:26, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

Eren's character image
I've been wondering about this for a while. Eren's image looks weird. Clearly he's not amused in that image with bunch of wrinkly shadey thingys on his face. His pupil looks funny. I know its hard to get a nice shot of him but i just wanna suggest this one: http://prntscr.com/2c1y4w I know he's not exactly facing directly this way but it looks more Erenish (and looks a lot better than the current). It's just my suggestion so if you think it isn't good enough then it's fine by me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ktrfgfg (talk • contribs)
I was also hoping to change it to something else. The lazy me just needs to go through the anime and find some proposals. Thanks for the suggestion though, it will be considered ^.^ P.S. Don't forget to sign your posts with ~~~~15:17, December 18, 2013 (UTC)
Eren's Titan form image glitched

About Eren and Annie's relationship, it is special feelings of respect, I believe I had already changed it to that. Isayama stated that it was feelings of respect as well. We need to give the right information or people will be confused Anu-Generation (talk) 04:32, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
I somewhat disagree, it's quoting Mikasa, right? In the series, she never mentions anything about respect (unless that's in the manga, and they removed the quote from the anime). Unless you have a link proving Isayama said this, I think it'd also be useful for linking it on the page, but I say no messing with a quote. Gurgatory (talk) 05:51, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
- What's in the article is what Mikasa states. She thinks Eren may have romantic feelings for Annie, and that's what is making him hesitate. This was picked up by the official guidebooks which "officially confirmed" that Eren's love was what made him unable to fight her, but once Isayama saw this published, he had to step in and say this wasn't the case, that Eren's feelings for Annie are of respect. In any case, what's listed in the article is what Mikasa thinks. hfc2X 08:00, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

- Well, you're disappointed because you're doing something that shouldn't be done: mixing shipping, which is a fandom thing, with canon. I have a friend who ships EreAni and doesn't care if it's canon or not or if Isayama "nuked" it. You like a ship? Cool. You are trying to shove your ship into canon because it "looks cute"? Not cool.

- I do not have any problem with what the author says, nor the series. And I am not an EreAni fan anymore. All I was trying to do was somehow not give someone wrong information. But man, nevermind that anymore. Anu-Generation (talk) 16:10, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
- No it is merely his "incomplete" form, which is shown not to be limited to Eren, as we saw the same thing happen with the colossal titan once as well. NeoSuperior (talk) 02:30, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
How old to be in military trainee
I've been wondering, how old do you have to be to join the milatary as a trainne. My friends making a fanfic and shes been bothering me how old you have to be to join and it's bugging me. So help me out here please.

- Since Eren was 11 when he decided "joining the military next year", we can assume the minimum recuitment age to be 12. hfc2X 01:11, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
- Dang, he was 12? I don't know about the manga, but he didn't look a day older at the end of Episode 2 than he did at the rest of the series. Gurgatory (talk) 01:32, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Meaning of "Eren"
I saw that it mentions in the trivia section that Eren is a Turkish name. I wonder if it would be worth adding that Eren would be the Japanese pronunciation of the Old English/Germanic word "ellen" which means zeal, courage, strength, etc. (It can be found on Wiktionary) Or is the Turkish name definitely the right one? It just seems like that wouldn't match with the German surname.
When I saw Eren's name for the first time I just said it like "Eren" but then my sister told me his name the "R" is like when you say his name. You have to roll your R's "Eren". Then Yeager I would say it like Jagger from the Song so for me when I saw Eren's name I spelled it like. "Eren Jagger" but I know the difference now "Eren Yeager". Sorry if this wasn't any help I'm like that
I figured I should ask before adding anything in myself.
No, I really don't think that would count as valid trivia since it's merely a pronunciation thing based on how the Japanese language works. Our "r" and "l" do not exist separately for them, and as such the two sounds are pronounced by them as the same thing. That isn't unique to Eren, nor does it mean anything special that they happen to pronounce his name in a way that sounds like something else. --Harostar (talk) 05:37, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
Fun fact: At some point (before the manga was even published in the west), Eren was called "Ellen Yega" in some merchandise. But as I don't know of even a single localisation where a publisher uses that spelling, we can be quite sure that that was not the intended spelling. NeoSuperior (talk) 06:48, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
Like NeoSuperior already point out, when it comes to romanization you are going to see all kinds of spellings pop up until an official one is confirmed. It's just how it works when dealing with languages that have vastly different alphabets and written characters. "Ellen" was merely spelling it phonetically, because the Japanese pronounce "r" and "l" as the same sound. --Harostar (talk) 06:54, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
Trivia says : "Eren could also stand for the German word "Ehre" (plural "Ehren"), which means honor." However there is not really a plural form of "Ehre" in German.It only exist in fixed terms or prepositional connections like "in allen Ehren" but it cannot used as a stand alone word. The word "ehren" do exist but is a verb (to honor) 184.108.40.206 18:32, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
- @220.127.116.11: If you think the information is wrong, please fix it. I know nothing of German so I can't help more than what I see on Google Translate, which gives me the same results for "Ehre" and "Ehren".--Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 19:57, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
In the 104th Trainee Squad arc section, it says "Eren, Mikasa and Armin briefly stayed in the “landfill” working on a farm before reaching the proper age to enroll in the military." Is this sourced anywhere? Did the anime omit it? I don't remember reading/watching anything like this. Thanks Gurgatory (talk) 08:37, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
- In the manga, there's a full scene at the very start of Chapter 15. In the anime, this is briefly mentioned in Episode 2 after Eren, Mikasa and Armin are receiving their rations. hfc2X 09:52, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
You wrote an incorrect information
I would like to correct the information in this sentence(chapter 63) "Eren wonders how much time is passed, about Erwin, about Armin, about the Survey Corps, about what Historia was told, how many times he has been captured" in the Japanese version even says"heicou" which means "captain" so he most likely refers to Levi and not to Erwin since naturally Erin will refer to him as "danchou" commander , you should edit it because it is a wrong translation .Tenacityfactor (talk) 21:24, October 24, 2014 (UTC)
Is Eren going to die in the next chapter?
SPOILERS FOR CHAPTER 63/64
So is Eren going to get eaten by Historia? D: Or are the Scouts going to save him before that happens? What do you guys think? --18.104.22.168 19:05, January 4, 2015 (UTC)
Foster or adopted
Adoption involves changing of surnames.Since Mikasa Ackerman didn' t change her surname, it is suitable to call her Eren' s Foster sister instead of Adopted sis. Kireeti (talk) 21:12, March 26, 2015 (UTC)
- You're right, there is no official confirmation that Mikasa was legally adopted by Grisha, so let's stick with "foster sister" for now. Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 21:39, March 26, 2015 (UTC)
Eren's alternative titan form
In the manga, in the chapter 62, Page 39 there is a picture of what looks like is Eren's "initial titan form". That was his titan body before he gained the coordinate, which problably ( just speculation) changed his appearence into something bigger and fitter, resembling more like Frieda's and Grisha's titan form. My question is: it is necesary to include that information? The initial look of Eren's titan, his description and probably a picture. And if the answer is yes, where it can be included? In His "appereance" section, his "abilities" section, inside his "titanShifting" section or in a new section?
I realized that when the subtitles of the show are shown, Yeager is spelled Jaeger. Why is that?
22.214.171.124 19:30, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
- "Jaeger" is another variant of his surname, along with others like "Jäger". If you look up on this page, some time ago there was a really long discussion about what surname to use, but at the end it was decided to use Yeager.Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 19:43, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
Eren's Burning Titan form in Episode 25
In Episode 25, in the Annie's and Eren's fight, Eren is seen being defeated and his Titan's head smashed so much that the brain is visible, Eren's Titan then suddenly burns and gaining red threads in the body and a darker skin tone, aswell as the eyes turning bright blue, is this another ability of his Titan? Like, is it a Rage Mode or something? I mean, it seems like it is much stronger than before and being able to overpower the Female Titan. I was wondering if there is any information about it.
- No, it's not another ability, just a little something added by the people who animated it to make it a little more interesting. Though, if it was, it would be an anime only ability; thus being considered non-canon by this wiki. EternalLocket (talk) 08:29, August 15, 2015 (UTC)
Return to Shiganshina arcEdit
why does the image below said: Levi Squad rides towards Shiganshina? Should it said: Eren rides toward Shiganshina? There is a image like that in Mikasa's Return to Shiganshina arc that said Mikasa rides towards Shiganshina. Please explain. I really want to know the reason.Jennicious (talk) 23:42, September 20, 2015 (UTC)
- Regular font color is fine, it makes it difficult to read otherwise. I'm not entirely sure, considering the scene has the entire Survey Corps heading towards Shiganshina, it would make more sense to have it worded that way. Considering they were posted about a week apart, it's likely the person that added it forgot they did something different on another page. You can edit it so that they follow the same set up if you think it makes that big of a difference. EternalLocket (talk) 02:42, September 21, 2015 (UTC)
Eren's nickname of "Suicidal Bastard" (or "Suicidal Blockhead" in the Colossal Edition retranslation) can be cited from Chapter 23, page 36, and/or Chapter 34, page 29. Since "Rogue Titan" is a fan-given name never used in canon, it might be more fitting as a piece of Trivia rather than an official alias. --GodKingReiss (talk) 23:23, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
- LOL, if it's non-canon then there is no need to be discussed, simply move it to the Trivia. You're right, you know how this works. :P --Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 23:29, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
- Ah, sorry, my bad, it is just temporarily locked until the next chapter release. I have just upgraded you to Content Moderator, now you should be able to edit locked pages (and also to lock pages if they are being excessively vandalized, but I'd advice you to do it only temporarily).--Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 23:41, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
Similarities to other characters outside of AOT
Does anyone find Eren to be similar to that of Chirin, the lamb from Chirin no Suzu and Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars, seeing how they were driven to avenge the deaths of their mothers and ending up turning into a monster? --Iscreamer1 (talk) March 12, 2017.
Can someone update Eren's height profile?
There is confirmation from Isayama in a Q/A session that older Eren is now 183cm tall.
Source - CTRL+F and enter 'Height'.
Thank you :D
- We only use official sources that have been vetted for accuracy since off the cuff interview remarks might make mistakes. (Or the person tweeting about the interview could have made a mistake.) As the SnK News itself notes, Isayama says Eren's height is now the same as his father's, but the height he gives Eren is not the same as Grisha's, which means Isayama made a mistake. Since we don't know which is true (the 183 cm or Eren and Grisha being the same height) we can't update.RuneLai (talk) 19:16, August 5, 2018 (UTC)
