In the fifth episode of Season 2, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki’s new powers were revealed, and they show a striking resemblance to the complex and layered world of Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan. The decade-long saga finally ended this month, on November 4, 2023. 

Loki can now manipulate timelines and alter history, reminding us of the protagonist’s ability from Attack in Titan. Eren Jaeger was capable of seeing through past and future memories to alter the course of events to achieve his goals.

The link between Loki’s new powers and the people around him is shown to be repeated periodically in the episode. It was one of the primary themes of the episode. OB speaks about how Loki cares about people he truly holds close to, and that allowed him to achieve this impossible power.


This aspect is quite similar to Eren Jaeger as well. The protagonist of the anime series could access the memories of its past and future holders, allowing them to pass on knowledge and influence the course of history.

There are several parallels between Eren’s and Loki’s abilities, which are almost mind-boggling. Both of these characters are fueled by a desire to protect the people they care for. They’re willing to reshape the future, using their unique powers to achieve these goals. 


Loki’s new ability to skip time allows him to alter a specific course of events or even manipulate the narrative. It is similar to how the protagonist of Attack on Titan uses his ability to influence the future through inherited memories.

Apart from the moniker God of Mischief, these newly found powers also ironically make him the God of Stories. He can shape any event or story in his own narrative, thus rewriting history to his preference. The final part of the season promises further exploration of the limitless potential of this power and its effects on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
