The need for glasses isn’t a sue trait at all! Many characters in SnK have glasses. They’re more like prescription goggles, however, with straps that keep them on their head. Hanji and Rico are both high ranking officers (squad leaders) and wear glasses, so glasses is by no means a sue trait in SnK.
We’ve also seen characters that have panic and anxiety attacks!
Most notably is Dazz of the 104th, who has a panic attack during the Battle for Trost, and vomits from the intensity.
Marco tries to calm Dazz down by showing him how collected Sasha is, and she yells out that she feels horrible and needs to see a medic because of how shaken she is from the Battle.
Anxiety and panic attacks in SnK are very viable and do happen! Neither of those are sue traits. However, the random anxiety attacks would be a hindrance to fighting. They would have to have a strong enough resolve to be able to cast off their emotions during battle, but maybe, after the brunt of the battle has past, she loses her resolve and breaks down in an anxiety attack. That could work, and that’s normally what does happen in SnK.
Well, school systems of a sort do exist. We’ve only seen military schooling, as seen with the 104th when they’re learning about the history of titans and their weaknesses.
We’re not sure, however, if primary school systems exist in the inner regions of the walls or how they would function. Judging on the grandiosity, school systems would be most common in Utopia, Sina, and would thin out as you worked toward Maria. Sina has the funding for it and has the aristocracy they find need to educate.
Education is less important as we come to Maria, because from what we’ve seen, it’s mainly hunter gatherer communities and local businesses.
Hope this helps!
Of course they can! However, they’re going to have to have a pretty good drive and reason to want to. A lot of people join the military for the pay, but if you’re living in Utopia, you’re extremely well off and don’t need a military paycheck. They’ll most likely be content to stay where they are with a placid lifestyle.
If you want an OC to come from Utopia, you should try to find a really good reason for them to actually want to be in the military!
Ymir does indeed wear pants! Usually, civilian women are seen wearing skirts, but that doesn’t mean that the ladies are strictly bound to wearing them.
I would figure that, because of the extreme gender equality in SnK, that nobody would be opposed to women wearing pants. I think its totally okay!
I would think that individual cultures and villages inside the walls and districts would tend to bury their deceased, but I can’t be positive of it.
There is ample amount of land inside the walls to actually have cemeteries, but we’ve only seen military funeral pyres.
I think on a local scale it would be plausible to have cemeteries.
I’m getting a lot of asks about the plausibility of different races in SNK.
Instead of answering each one individually, i’ll tackle the whole racial diversity and plausibility of whichever race being inside the walls at whatever percentages based on location.
Firstly, we can assume that Maria, Rose, and Sina sit between Germany and France. Most of the characters have either inherently German or inherently French names, most being of distinct Germanic origin. The wall structure in SNK was based on a town in southern France called Carcassonne.
Because of the situation of the walls between France and Germany, and the kind of travel technology we’ve seen in SNK, we can pretty much predict the plausibility of someone getting to safety within the walls on how far away they are. If I remember correctly, the walls are roughly the size of Texas.
Which, on a larger scale here, means this.
Mikasa was able to get all the way from Asia to here, and she is the sole survivor of Asian descent. Russia is, geographically, about 77% in Asia. Mikasa is the sole survivor from all of Asia.
The only instance of transportation other than on foot and by 3DMG is horseback. A covered wagon can travel anywhere from 10 to 15 miles(About 16 to 24 kilometres) in a day. A horse by itself can travel about 30 miles a day (48.2 kilometres)
Europe is 10,180,000 square kilometres in surface area, or 3,930,000 square miles. Spain to Turkey is about 3035 kilometres. If you want to bring your belongings with you, you’re looking at 8 months of traveling. If you go alone on horseback, you’re looking at only 4 months of traveling.
If you’re coming from an island, you also have to calculate in the amount of time it takes by sea, to get to land, and then cross country to the walls.
TLDR; it takes forever to get someplace by horse or covered wagon. Think carefully about where exactly your OC will be coming from if you decide to make an SNK OC. Hope this helps!
