Marco’s Attack On Titan Death Explained (& Who Was Responsible)

Marco Bodt’s time on Attack On Titan was brief and his death brutal. Here’s the circumstances of his demise explained, plus who was responsible.

Marco Bodt met a tragic end in Attack On Titan season 1, but how did he die and who was responsible for his death? Based on Hajime Isayama’s manga of the same name, Attack On Titan is set in a fantasy world in which people are forced to live in settlements surrounded by giant walls that protect them from Titans – giant, seemingly mindless humanoids who roam the land devouring any humans they come across. With Attack On Titan season 4 currently on pause between parts 2 and 3, the plot has thickened significantly, and many recent episodes re-examine events from season 1 in a new light.

Attack On Titan follows protagonist Eren Jaeger and several of his close comrades, who all joined the military at a young age. After several years of training, the cadets fight their first major battle against the human-eating Titans after they decimate the settlement walls once again. This skirmish was known as the Battle of Trost and saw the military suffer many casualties, including Eren’s friend Thomas Wagner, who was devoured by a Titan, and cadet Franz Kefka who was bitten in half by another.

Attack On Titan’s Marco was another casualty of the Battle of Trost. Marco was a well-liked member of his regiment and regularly boosted the morale of his fellow cadets, especially Jean Kirschtein who he became close friends with. He fought bravely during the battle and helped save Jean’s life by distracting a Titan that was about to eat him. Tragically, it was Jean who found Marco’s mangled corpse during a clean-up operation after the battle came to an end in Attack On Titan episode 13. Though Marco’s death was originally chalked up as a simple casualty of war, Attack On Titan season 3 revealed the circumstances surrounding his demise weren’t so clear-cut. When Attack On Titan season 4 part 3 picks back up where part 2 left off, Jean should finally be able to get some closure on the matter.

If Attack On Titan season 4 part 3 continues to follow the manga (as it should), it will see an arc in which Jean seeks revenge for the true story of what happened to Marco. A flashback in Attack On Titan episode 52 revealed that shortly before his death Marco overheard a conversation between fellow cadets Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover, in which they revealed that – like Founding Titan Eren Jaeger – they had the ability to transform into Titans. Furthermore, Reiner and Bertholdt revealed it was their Titans that caused the last two wall breaches. This, in turn, led Marco to deduce that they were working against their supposed comrades. Reiner, Bertholdt, and their fellow traitor Annie Leonhart decided they couldn’t let Marco live and proceeded to remove his weaponry and watch as he got eaten by a Titan.

Marco Bodt’s time on Attack On Titan may have been brief, but he certainly had an impact – especially on his best friend Jean Kirschtein, who took his death particularly hard. Marco’s brutal death didn’t just convince Jean to ditch his dreams of a safe job with the military police in favor of a more dangerous position fighting Titans on the frontline. As the Attack On Titan manga reveals, Jean also eventually exacts bloody revenge on Reiner for his part in Marco’s death – an incident which is expected to be covered in Attack On Titan season 4 part 3.

While Attack On Titan season 4 part 3 has yet to receive a specific release date, MAPPA has revealed that the final final season will arrive sometime in 2023. Given the release pattern of Attack On Titan season 4’s other parts, this could mean the finale hits around January or February of 2023. As for what the story will include (besides Jean’s revenge), it seems that the conflict is nearing a drawn-out end. Attack On Titan season 4 part 3 needs to resolve several significant relationships and minor villain arcs, but the main thrust of the final season will ultimately be Eren’s continued genocide attempt and the efforts of his ex-comrades to prevent him from succeeding. All of this occurs in the manga, which means it should also be translated into Attack On Titan season 4 part 3’s episodes. It remains to be seen how the anime will handle the manga’s controversial ending, however, so audiences will have to wait and see what happens when Attack On Titan‘s last episodes finally air.
