What is a Huge titan? Rod Reiss titan size explained AOT

huge titans

The Huge Titan is a character in the Manga Anime series known as Attack on Titan(AOT). It is also known as “colossal titan.” The huge titan is one of the nine titans and serves as the primary villain of the first three series of Attack on Titan. It is known for its gigantic size and absolute control over steam emission.

The Huge titan emits steam through its body as well as exercises control over blast during transformation. Somehow, the colossal titan first surfaced in the year 845. Abilities/Characteristics of Huge Titan or Colossal Titan

The huge titan has incredible abilities and characteristics. Let’s look at them one after the other.

Steam Emission

As stated earlier, the colossal titan has absolute control over the quantities of steam that its titan form could emit. Typically, most Titans generate steam through wounds. Their bodies vaporize and turn into steam after receiving a deathly blow. The huge Titan could generate as much steam as possible to scare people away from its nape.

The huge Titan can utilize steam-emitting power in numerous ways. First, the pressure and intensity that comes from producing a significant amount of steam can burn and drive off any individual in proximity to the Huge Titan that is not set in place.

However, if the Colossal Titan is attached to an individual, the heat will sear them at the Titan’s mercy.

In the real sense of it, the overexertion of this ability harms the Titan. For instance, it can reduce muscle mass until its skeletal structure becomes prominent.

In special circumstances, the Huge Titan could vaporize its entire body at a go and vanish immediately. Somehow, the user becomes unavoidably vulnerable with no means to guard against a fall from a high altitude where the Titan once was. However, the user can assuage this disadvantage by donning an omni-directional gear (ODM gear).  The gear drives excellent mobility when facing the Titan during combat

An excellent example is after the Huge Titan showed up in Trost. It released a significant amount of steam to repel Jaeger from its nape.

Explosive Transformation

Do you happen to know? Even though all Titans produce large quantities of steam and energy, the Huge Titan has upgraded. That is to say, it can engineer the energy generated in the course of transformation to produce various effects.

For example, when Bertholdt confronted Trost, his transformation generated a wind blast. The blast threw some cadets over the wall.

However, Bertholdt produced a quantity of energy comparable to a small nuclear device during combat at Shiganshina District.  The energy gutted a portion of the district and set the surroundings ablaze. It killed a massive number of Scout Regiment officers.

Somehow, the transformation also created a large mushroom, rubble, and dust. Arielt utilized the explosive transformation to expunge nearly all the Marleyan naval fleet at Liberio in a damaging explosion. The action produced energy waves and damaged the port. 

Size

The Huge Titan is notorious for its magnificent size. It is sixty meters high enough to squint over the top of the Walls. Its molecular weight allows it to have massive physical strength. But the real point is that its large size steadies its movements. That is to say, it moves rather slowly.

However, the Huge Titan is strong enough to devastate the outer gate of the Wall Maria with a swift kick. It can throw the entire buildings in the air as it allowed Eren Yeager to glide from the tip of the Wall Maria.

What’s more? The size of the Colossal Titan’s arms is not akin to the rest of its body. In this case, it means that compared to the lower part of its body, its upper part has lesser strength.

Armin also utilizes the Huge Titan’s immense size and strength to destroy the Marleyan ships by stamping on them after his transformation.

How Did Rod Reiss have a Huge Titan Form?

Rod Reiss is also known as “Lord Reiss.” He was the monarch of the Walls from the year 845 to 850. In the real sense of it, Rod’s primary goal was to return a stolen Titan to his family. He intended to achieve this by ensuring that his daughter (Historia) eat Eren Yeager.

Human Form

As Historia, Rod was a petite person. But compared to Historia, he had short black hair. Rod was also slightly overweight.

Rod was always attired in the clothes of a prominent figure. Of course, he was. He would wear a shirt with a pullover chest, then pants and dress shoes. All his attires are typically the black and white colour combo. In some cases, it might be white alone.

However, Rod wears a shirt, a pant, and a long coat during Titan rituals and family meetings.

Personality

Rod seems to have a calm and collected personality. But at the same time, he often looks slightly dejected and worried.  Rod is an intelligent and wise person. It is apparent in how he spoke about when his brother (Uri) and his daughter (Frieda) secured and lost the Founding Titan.

Rod kept a level head throughout the time with Ackerman, Historia, and Eren. He even comported himself well after Ackerman grabbed him at the throat and tried to slit the latter.

However, when Historia squashed the serum, Rod became agitated and erratic. He became devastated cried when the syringe smashed into smithereens and licked the serum on the floor.

Transformation into a Huge Titan Form: How?

Rod could have transformed into a Huge Titan in different ways. It could also be a  combination of several factors. As stated earlier, Rod had consumed the serum.

But do you happen to know? The serum was designed specifically for Historia. Rod licked it out of the floor instead of inoculating it into his bloodstream. We know that he didn’t consume the entire dosage. However, he’s still a member of the Royal Family. It means that he shared the slightest affinity with the abnormal or distinctive Titans.

Essay-reviewer.com has stated that abnormal Titans uniquely come to existence. They emerged because they failed to consume the right quantity of Titan serum. The abnormal Titans showcase distinct traits than typical traits.

For instance, chances are that Rod didn’t consume the serum correctly. This way, he became a distinct Titan who was much larger and bent out of shape when compared with other Titan breeds.

Rod was so popular because of his huge size. His appearance does not come close to his human form except for his masculine structure as most Titans are. Reiss expanded to the point of becoming one of the largest Titans in history with 120 meters in height.  That is to say, he was twice as big as the Huge Titan, which is sixty meters in height.

Reiss was known for its skeletal structure; nearly all his bones were visible.  He doesn’t have a face as half of his head had deformed due to friction against the ground. However, Rod could restore his face if he stopped dragging his head on the ground.

Strangely enough, Rod’s body displayed a specific structure and design akin to a worm. He could stretch and contract his torso like a worm.

Like the Huge Titan, his immense size slowed his movements and produces a significant amount of heat. The heat he released was so intense that it was challenging to go near him without getting scalded.

Titan Shifters

Rod received a Huge Titan serum. The story allows us to know that the serum could change Historia into a strong titan.

The question arises, who are the strongest titans?

They are the shifters. As it is, if they are unconscious, they could become pure titans. But they cannot transform into a Huge Titan. Rod didn’t think that it was an excellent idea to limit himself to a sixty-meter titan type. So we believe that he transformed into the distinct Huge Titan to that end.

Why Did Rod Reiss turn into a Huge Titan?

Perhaps, most people believe that it was because of how Reiss consumed. But let’s look at it from another angle. First things first, chances are that it was not how he consumed the serum. Instead, it was what Reiss swallowed. He had consumed the most powerful Titan serum.

Another reason hinged on the themes of willpower, ambitions, and goals that formed a significant part of the story. We are pretty sure that Reiss had a strong desire to change into something that could help him to achieve his goals. However, he became a Titan in the real sense of it as expanded in both physical and mental strength because of his ambition.

We all know that Reiss is part of the Royal Family. In this case, they have a certain measure of influence over the Ymir people.

We believe that the royal members that do not have the Founding Titan have a strong relationship with the Ymir and the rest of the elders. So, Rod might have persuaded them to make him powerful and influential.

Conclusion

Reiss swallowed a liquid substance and his body expanded. The normal titans are human beings who ingested the regular titan serum. This way, they have the average size. In short, when you consume the titan serum, you can have and explore certain abilities and capabilities. Reiss was more popular than the Huge Titan because it was a distinct breed. Since he wanted to achieve his goals at all costs, he grew so much to accomplish them.
