In episode 21 of season 3, Eren Kruger

who is The Owl (Former Attack Titan), told Grisha to save Mikasa and Armin despite the fact that they were not even born at that time.

How could he

access the memories of a future Attack Titan?

Is this an ability available to

all Titan shifters?

If so, then why was Eren Kruger the first to manifest it?

  • That's a given ability, that Titan shifters possess memories from the future and past wielders of the Titan it currently has. The specifics were never explained in the manga and I'm not sure it will ever be, given how far it is already from that revelation and the fact that it's already in the final arc. But there is no time travel involved, they only see what will happen or was happened in the future and past, respectively.

  • it was never explicitly stated that they can access the memories of future titan shifters, @W.Are we are only sure about seeing the memories of previous ones. Except maybe i missed something? Jun 29, 2019 at 23:55
  • It seems to me that what happened in Eren Kreugers case was as a result of something more complex, otherwise, many other titan shifters would have been known to have used such an ability. Jun 30, 2019 at 0:00
  • @Rumpelstiltskin Eren Krueger's case is proof that some, if not all, Titan shifters can access memories of future inheritors of Titan shifters. Otherwise, how would he know about Armin and Mikasa? You're right that it's never fully explained and I was wrong with the wordings I used. Whether or not it is unique to the attack titan, we'll never know for now but the attack titan do have access to future memories. To what extent was never specified too.

  • It's possible that what we see is either some of Eren's own thoughts corrupting the memory he was viewing. In the same way that viewing the memory acted on Eren's body, making him stand in a particular way and repeat the name "Attack Titan".

not all titans posses this ability but it is an unique ability to Eren's titan,So therefore anyone with the Eren's titan power can do it.


This is the Attack titan special power, which Eren possesses

welders of Attack titan can see the future and control the past just like what Eren is about to do in season 4.
