The final episode of “Attack on Titan” solved many long-standing mysteries, but also introduced an unpredictable new mystery—a flying giant that defied many viewers’ expectations.
In their final confrontation with the Founding Titan, Armin and his allies face overwhelming odds, struggling to fend off the countless Titans that Eren has summoned.
At a critical moment, when Mikasa was about to unleash her rage, a voice suddenly urged her to back off.
It was Annie, on a Titan possessing the power of flight, who quickly evacuated the warriors from the Founding Titan.
Let’s dig in and see how bizarre a Titan even exists.

Who is the Flying Titan?
Before we can understand the feasibility of such a Titan, we need to identify the individual who inherited this unique form. That person is Falco Grice, the current owner of the Jaw Titan.
Falco, an Eldian Warrior Candidate serving under the Marley Government, was first introduced in the first episode of The Final Season Part 1, set against the backdrop of Marley’s war with the Middle Eastern Alliance.
It was during a conversation with Annie as they left Odiha on a ship that Falco first came up with the idea of the existence of such a Titan.

How can Falco fly?
Falco’s transformation into the Flying Titan is a result of uniquely inheriting two Titan powers. The first is the Jaw Titan, which he obtains by consuming Porco Galliard in his pure Titan form.
The second is the characteristics of the Beast Titan, which Falco possesses quite by accident. During the War for Paradis arc, Falco intervened to save Gabi from Nicolo’s wrath after Gabi’s boast about killing Sasha angered him.
When Nicolo lunged at Gabi with a bottle of wine, Falco jumped in front of her, took the hit, and accidentally drank some of the wine containing Zeke’s spinal fluid.
Accidentally consuming Zeke’s fluid gave Falco the characteristics of a Beast Titan, resembling a flying creature, allowing him to grow wings and a feathered appearance for his Jaw Titan form, creating the Flying Titan.
