In Attack on Titan Season 4, Eren Yeager (Kyuji Okamoto) struggles to control his Titan form. In the first episode, Titan was strong enough to kill him but was also slow to do so. In the second episode, Titan is easily capable of surprising those who were near him and even killing them without much difficulty. With these impressive skills, Eren is encouraged to find and recruit other titans in order to achieve even greater heights. Unfortunately, each recruit he recruits is too powerful for him to handle, and each proves to be a threat to Eren’s existence.
