"His death serves to illuminate [...]"
His death doesn't really serve any purpose once you notice 16-year-olds die a soldier's death on daily basis in the world of SnT.

His death actually servers a great purpose, and that is a development of other characters, especially Jean. By the way, this is wrong place for your statement, talk pages are for discussing changes to the article.18:59, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
That said, his death also serves the purpose to illuminate the fact that '16-year-olds die a soldier's death on daily basis in the world of SnT', which is a pretty harsh thing to realize in itself. Also, it's probably worth mentioning, The Italian, Spanish, and Portugese 'Marco' is largely agreed to be a form of 'Mark', or 'Marcus', which itself is derived from Mars, the Roman god of war (or to be 'dedicated/consecrated to [him]). I've also seen it with meanings including 'hammer', 'guardian', 'manly' (from 'mas'), and 'soft/tender' (from Greek 'malakos'). 188.8.131.52 01:00, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Shouldn't it also be included that Hajime stated he never intended for Marco go die in volume 4, but because he didn't consider him interesting enough he killed him off. From that we can also say the meaning of his name changed Yugioh z (talk) 23:09, October 7, 2014 (UTC)
Marco's dead theory
Could someone give the text about theory of Marco's death. It's very popular so it should be mentioned here. Here's link to snk-wikia about that http://shingekinokyojin.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Xxkiiroxx/%22Marco_is_Alive%22_Theory
- Regardless of popularity, fan theories will never be added to article pages unless:
- Isayama makes note of it in an interview, or
- The theory is actually something a character, or multiple characters, believe.
- In which case, it would likely appear in the trivia section. Unless a character is using that theory within the story to base their actions off of. For example, Erwin theorized the Quadrupedal Titan had intelligence. Regardless of whether he's right or wrong, that would go in the story section somewhere.
- As far as Marco is concerned, it has already been written and confirmed within the story that Marco is dead. I'm not sure why people believe otherwise, one of his closest friends identified his body. The only thing that I saw that was "left in the air," was how he died. Since it didn't look like a Titan attack to me, but also seemed like more effort used than necessary on Annie's part. EternalLocket (talk) 00:37, December 25, 2015 (UTC)
New Manga Picture?
Since we have new art of Marco in chapter 77, could/should his manga picture on his page be updated? To one of these two perhaps?
- Hmm, there isn't really anything wrong with his current image. We don't really update based on time, but if you're going to change it, I'd prefer the second image. Also, don't forget to sign your posts. EternalLocket (talk) 07:24, January 11, 2016 (UTC)
- I also like the option two. And I think that any of the two images is an improvement over the current one simply because they are front views and the current is a side view. Though I liked more his classic appearance rather than this "chubby Marco", but blame Isayama for changing his drawing style (I usually prefer the new drawing style, this is the first case I like better an old version). --Manuel de la Fuente (talk) 16:42, January 11, 2016 (UTC)
- Sorry it took me so long to get back to this. I've never added an image to an article before, so I admit I'm not 100% on how, but it's [here here ] and I've added it to his page.Nue Renji (talk) 01:57, March 3, 2016 (UTC)
- I can't imagine that will be added to the wiki. It looks awfully suspicious, and unless I'm really bad with twitter, it doesn't seem to be on his account anymore; if it ever was. Not to mention I've never seen the option to delete another person's tweet. Unless that's how twitter looked in 2014, I don't remember it, but I'm unsure. If you can find a link to the direct tweet though, that would be a different story. EternalLocket (talk) 05:56, January 27, 2016 (UTC)
- I'll admit that I'm kind of horrible at using Twitter, but I did scroll through Isayama's entire Twitter timeline to find the tweet in question, (I know, that's sad) and found nothing, meaning Isayama either deleted it, or never tweeted(?) it at all. He also writes almost all of his tweets in kanji, rather than english (the only times I see him write in english are when he replies to fans who addressed him in english, rather than kanji), so I don't see why he would write that one in english.--Neetaku (talk) 20:25, January 27, 2016 (UTC)
