What happens if all Nine Titans are distilled into one person? Would it make a SuperTitan? Would the inheritor become Ymir reincarnate? Her equivilant? Or the Devil of All Earth? Or something else entirely?
At this rate, we can do nothing but make theories. Some people believe that SnK will end with Eren of Armin inheriting of every shifters. Why not, even if it might be a bit complicated to see considering that there are not a lot of chapter left (about 10/15 I'd say).
- Maybe someone inheriting of the 9 powers becomes some SuperTitan, as you said. Maybe not at once, maybe he/she chooses during the transformation which power he/she needs. Or maybe that would be some SuperTitan of 60 meters, walking on four, with a powerfull jaw, fur and armor around its body, the power of creating instantly cristal (Warhammer power), the Founding Titan's power and female curves . Seriously, someone MUST make a draw of that thing. However it's too weird for it to be shown in the manga, so I assume that if we ever get to this situation, it'll be the first possibility (and it's even helped by the fact that the Warhammer Titan didn't change the appearance of Eren's Titan).
- The other possibility is that it'll make the "first" Titan, similar to the one Ymir Fritz had (even if I don't see the difference between her power and the power of the following Founding Titans..). And from this, we might get a way to end the Titan stuff (as an example, by stopping the "paths" to interact with subjects of Ymir, making them unable to receive Titan power or being turned into a pure Titan)
Or perhaps, the combination of all 9 will allow for the reversion of all Titan converted peoples back to human beings; sort of like "purifying the paths" to Ymir's Subjects. But, then again, it could be a hundred other things. I can speculate all day, but hopefully the writers are far more creative than i am. My theory sounds kind of trite, doesn't it? Too easy...
Well it's not «too easy». Because first we'd need to get all of the 9 Titans into one person. And I think it'll require free will to do what you've said, I don't think it'd be automatic. But, as you said... Those are speculations.
I don't mean to give the wrong impression: "too easy" was sort of a double entendre. Firstly, it was me just being a little facitious about the actual ease of acomplishing the task; secondly, i was implying that, as a plot device or literary vehicle, that particular outcome really is ¨too easy¨ (or at least incredibly contrived/predictable).

Another possibility is that all Nine Titans put together in one person brings back a reasonable facsimile of Ymir Fritz.
The latter was one of my original theories. The former would be very interesting in its own right, however. I have a strong suspicion that the joining of the nine Titans is inevitable if one were to follow the story far enough. That's not to say that we as readers (or viewers) will ever see it come to pass, as the series may very well end before this happens. The only way to stop this from happening, is for someone (anyone, really) to use the Coordinate's power to wipe out the Titans and exterminate every last Subject of Ymir, including themselves. Or, i suppose the Devil of All Earth could show up and take its power back, and drag the Eldians all to hell. Xp
From what I understand Ymir Fritz's power transcends all 9 Titans Combined. Perhaps when she died she became the Devil of All Earth. Supposedly her afterlife requires her to create the titan bodies & regenerate Titan Shifters. She seems to choose to kill the Titan Shifters after 13 years for her own personal reasons. It's possible that Eren is going to take Ymir's place once he dies & that he just made the same deal that she did.
Whether the role is called Devil of All Earth, or Source of All Living Matter, it seems to have power surpassing all 9 Titans. Even if someone managed to cannibalize all 9 Shifter Titans, I believe that it's likely they would still need to have the support of this Source/Devil to be able to rival Ymir Fritz. Eren said something about freeing Ymir Fritz from her role, although he's also been getting set up as the villain. Maybe Eren's really going to end up as that Devil?
Mikasa & Armin are necessary in order to stop him from what I understand. While I believe all 9 Titan Shifters will end up in Shiganshina before this is over, I don't think we'll see all 9 of them become 1 shifter. I think it's more likely we'll see the Eldians lose the power of the Titans before this series ends over the following year.

I feel like the Devil of All Earth is just propoganda. Seeing as how the first season of Attack on Titan mocked the religious people praying to the wall and resulting in them getting randomly killed in a pretty comedic way tbh. I doubt that the creator would just definitively make the devil and god real characters that influence the world. It's just a really strange can of worms to open because the argument can be brought up that god never intervened, or that the devil has been nowhere to be seen in the story thus far except the books and illustrations which are regarded as propogada anyways. Even in the Fandom wiki it states that "The world was convinced that the Devil of All Earth was real", and " Eren Kruger suspected that Ymir's deal with the Devil was fabricated by the enemies of her people, although the tale is told in an Eldian book as well." It seems very unlikely.
