Reiner Braun is a graduate of the 104th Training Corps and former member of the Survey Corps. He is the vice captain of the Warrior Unit who was selected as a child to become one of Marley's Warriors, inheriting the power of the Armored Titan. In the year 845, he infiltrated Paradis alongside Bertolt Hoover, Annie Leonhart, and Marcel Galliard as part of an operation to reclaim the Founding Titan.

Weaknesses: His regeneration can be hindered if he loses his will to live | Can be killed if the one meter long and 10 centimeters wide area of his nape where his body is is cut, and the transformation can only be maintained for so long. Armoring his entire body considerably reduces his mobility and movement speed
- Regeneration: Reiner, like all other Titans and humans with the Titan powers alike, has the ability to automatically regenerate any wounds sustained and even entire limbs. This also applies to his human form, and he possesses the ability to consciously control his regenerative ability, slowing down or speeding up his regeneration at will.
- Armor Hardening: Reiner's body automatically produces a hardened, armor-like skin that covers most of his body, save for areas such as his joints at the back of his legs. The Armored Titan can choose to harden or not to harden joints at will, sacrificing speed and combat ability for protection. However, this is his only remarkable weak spot: similar to a medieval armor, his body needs gaps around the joints in order to move with necessary speed. This makes him vulnerable in just a few spots, like the inner part of his knees and his elbows. Additionally, he can harden his fingertips and toes into points in order to grip and climb flat, vertical surfaces like the Walls.
- Brain Function Transfer: Reiner is able to prevent his certain death by after transferring the functions of his brain into the rest of his body. With this ability he can survive a direct strike to his spinal cord and even maintain some control over his Titan form after his brain and the top half of his head was destroyed by a Thunder Spear by using his Armored Titan's brain as a backup. However, this ability is incredibly difficult to successfully carry out and is only used as a last resort.
