The Armored Titan is the 43rd chapter of the Attack on Titan manga, written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama.


The chapter follows the battle between Eren and the Armored Titan, and the Survey Corps and the Colossal Titan.


Eren punches Reiner in the face, hitting him against the Wall. Mikasa observes this and regrets not having cut Reiner and Bertolt's heads off when she had the chance. The Colossal Titan swipes his hand over the wall, causing destruction on the top and forcing the soldiers to jump off it. He manages to capture Ymir in one hand and a soldier in another and flings both of them into his mouth. Squad leader Hange directs her soldiers in an attempt to bring down the Colossal Titan. All of the squadron members charge all at once and notice that his movements were slow. They direct themselves towards the nape of his neck to slice it off, but he immediately releases a burst of hot steam which throws them off and thwarts their attempt. Armin notes that because of the high pressure wave of steam, their Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear will be inoperative. Hange orders Squads 2, 3 and 4 to remain on standby near the Colossal Titan while she, Armin and Squad 1 would take care of the Armored Titan. At a distance, ConnieHistoria and some other soldiers feel the heat of the steam and start worrying about their comrades Ymir, Reiner and Bertolt.

Meanwhile, Eren has been punched and knocked to the ground by the Armored Titan and he realizes that Reiner had been holding back on him during their hand-to-hand practice fights in their trainee days. He reminisces how he wanted to become strong like him and becomes disgusted with Reiner's face overflowing with justice. Mikasa notes that her blades were useless against him as his whole body was hardened. Eren's attacks also seemed ineffective on him. Reiner heads towards Eren as he picks himself up and tries to attack him. Reiner just punches him in the face, again, this time obliterating half his head. The chapter ends here.
