...a pure titan.
If so, then if R & B fails to capture Eren this time around, it might be a while before the Ape Titan passes by the Walls again, giving Mankind time to plan a counterattack...
As for there being isolated communities - I defintively think there is - the existence of the Titan Shifter community seems to prove that the humans who live within the Walls aren't th eonly ones in this world. My guess is that these other isolated communities would be incredibly difficult to find though - the distance between these communities would be vast (I doubt the Scouting Legion goes all that far away when they leave the Walls) and some of these communities might be hidden since they might not have the luxury of Titan-refinforced walls...

Yea good point, I wonder how exactly it transformed them into titans too....
I am unsure whether or not this has been pointed out prior to this, but something about the "Ape Titan" or rather Beast Titan, is reminiscent of a werewolf.
Look at the last panel on this page: http://www.mangareader.net/shingeki-no-kyojin/39/45
It looks to me like a full moon. Also the cry "OOOOO" doesn't seem like something a monkey would say but to me reading it sounds more like a wolf howling away at the moon. Besides that, his power to be able to change humans into titans reminds me of the way when a werewolf bites a human they can also turn them into a werewolf.
This leads me to ask the question, does the Beast Titan always look like this? Or does it only take this form so that it can move at night as we know that barring the titans that were created by the Beast Titan, titans are immobile at night. It could well be that the Beast Titan actually looks like a regular titan but transforms into that state for some unknown reason? Well seeing as the whole feeling I get from it is werewolf like, maybe it can only do this on the day of a full moon?
These are just my thoughts and feelings on the Beast titan that I thought I'd share with you guys. It may seem kind of messy because I pretty much thought of it just now; hopefully you guys may have some input on this anyway!

Yea, can't wait for chapter 50, does it come out in the middle of the month or the beginning?
Ok, after watching the 50 episode in manga, I guess all of us will agree (or most of us xD)
Don't read if you haven't seen the last episode in the manga.
PS: sorry for the english...
Theriomorphic refers to the metamorphosis of human to animal.
The Werewolf is the most famous example.
Just like you said, Werewolves turn their victims into one as well.
Anyway what is more important is that Gudmundr was the king of the land referred to as Warriors Paradise, Glaesisvellir.
See this allegorical.
Warriors could equate to the paradise for BAR as we know, they simply want to return to their home seeing that by dictionary paradise can be a place where one find absolute delight.
Warriors Paradise - BAR's Home.
And the father of Gudmundr was the god of a Cult.
Reminds me of how the Church Cult keep talking about Walls gifted by God.
Isayama likes to go poetic.
Like how in the Norse = Ymirs Flesh and Blood make up the Walls that surround the Human World.
Flesh and Blood being an Idiom for "Ones own Kin", relatives.
Translating to - Ymirs own Kin.
Translating to - Titans in the Wall.
Ymir was the very first titan in the Norse.

You bring the Norse myth knowledge my friend!
Thanks for that!
I'm fairly sure he wasn't an ape. It looks like one but why the hell would they make it an ape. Like let's look at this reasonably; seeing how humanity is in a waste and apparently it's not a good thing to be turned into a Titan, I highly doubt they would need to "test" if the thing worked at all; it doesn't quite seem like they are all to worried about possible inhumane side affects. (Not to mention becoming a Titan is fundamentally inhumane in and of itself).
Btw when I say ape, I mean like a regular ape, not gudmundir from Norse mythology. That's a pretty cool theory, right there.

The ape titan is grisha
Besides Eren, Ymir and Ape, someone see Elf Titans?
So, i found one:
Right bottom giant, e saw it i think, this is 100 yrs ago, so...
Welcome, Ariel (if I didn't say so already).
That's interesting, though I'm not quite seeing pointy ears on the second link?
It's uncanny how much that one titan looks like Eren. Could be a random one-off thing like the weird-eyed titan and some of the titans having shrivelled limbs though. Pointy ears on Ymir didn't seem to matter to Reiner and Bert, but it is a fact the ape and Eren both have them too.
Have you seen this thread (compilation of history/facts about titans), btw? Your post kind of relates to both this thread and that one.
