Aside from Watchmen, which Isayama often admits is one of the inspirations for the Attack on Titan manga, the mangaka also took some ideas from Western shows Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.

Falco Grice’s character, in particular, was inspired by Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman.

In fact, several characters from the two series often made cameo appearances as titans in the manga.

Watchmen character “Rorschach” was the forerunner to the creation of Levi

Isayama also revealed that he created Levi’s character after watching Watchmen in an interview with Brutus Magazine back in 2014.

At that time, he decided to create a character similar to Watchmen’s Rorschach, which explains why Levi is short in stature, has a unique personality, possesses extraordinary abilities, and wears a white cravat.

Titan Eren and the Armored Titan were based on real fighters

Isayama based Eren’s titan form on a martial artist named Yushin Okami, a Japanese mixed martial artist.

Apart from his physique, he also modeled the titan’s fighting stance after the middleweight MMA fighter.

On the other hand, the Armored Titan is inspired by another fighter, a professional wrestler named Brock Lesnar.
