Levi's squad, now composed of Eren and his remaining friends, are camped out in a cottage where Hange carries out experiments on Eren to test his Titan and hardening abilities to seal the wall. Hange reports that Pastor Nick has been tortured and murdered in the Trost District barracks but she accuses the Military Police's First Interior Squad of being responsible. Levi suspects that someone in the government has their sights set on destroying the Survey Corps and concealing the secrets of the Titans. After Nifa delivers a message from Erwin, who has been arrested by the Military Police, Levi has the Scouts abandon their hideout only shortly before the Military Police storms it. Levi figures that the government is after Eren and Historia and he decides to head back to the Trost District. Before Hange leaves with Mobilt to go after Erwin, Eren gives her a written copy of the conversation he recalled between Ymir and Bertholdt. The Scouts arrive in Trost, and Jean and Armin disguised as Eren and Historia are soon abducted. Mikasa and the others easily rescue them from their kidnappers. Meanwhile Levi is uneasy, and tells Nifa about Kenny the Ripper, a serial killer he knew in the past, when suddenly Kenny and his minions appear. They kill Nifa and the rest of her team, and then Kenny pursues Levi across the rooftops.

Kenny, now working for the Interior Squad, pursues Levi with members of his group, but Levi manages to escape. Mikasa hears the commotion and leads the other scouts in defense of Historia and Eren, which involves killing other humans, something they have never done before. In the Capital city Mitras, the government receives a message from Lord Reiss that Historia and Eren have been captured. Following their savage battle with Kenny's group, Armin and the rest are traumatized of having to fight and kill other humans, for which Levi consoles them. They interrogate their prisoner and community leader, Dimo Reeves, who helped the Military Police, but he fears for the future of his company and the people in Trost. Levi offers him protection for the people of Trost in exchange for his help. Elsewhere, Hange approaches Erwin to help, suggesting that Eren will be eaten if they do not rescue him. With Reeves' assistance, the scouts capture some Interior Squad soldiers and torture Sannes, the man who killed Pastor Nick, about the whereabouts of Historia and Eren. They discover Historia is the real heir to the throne and conclude she is being held by her father, Rod Reiss. Later, Reeves is killed by Kenny for betraying him, unaware that Reeves' son, Flegel, witnessed it.

In a flashback, Historia tells the Scouts of her upbringing on the Reiss estate in the region of Wall Rose, her estrangement from her parents, the execution of her mother by Kenny and then being hidden as Krista Lenz. In the present, Rod heads back to his family estate with Historia and Eren while Hange explains to the Scouts that Eren will be eaten to acquire his Titan powers and abilities. The Scouts split up and head for the Reiss estate to rescue Eren and Historia. Meanwhile Erwin explains to Commander Pyxis his plans of a bloodless coup to overthrow the corrupt government to retake Wall Maria. Erwin gains Pyxis' support after telling him that Sannes confessed that the current royal family is a fraud, and the Scouts plan to have Historia enthroned as Queen. He also reveals that his father was murdered after telling Erwin that he believed the real reason for the flight to within the walls was to protect the land and property of the wealthy, not humanity. To insulate the other Scouts, Erwin then surrenders to the Military Police who frame him for the murder of Reeves after he appoints Hange as his successor. Outside the city, the Scouts prepare for their rescue mission, but they are being tracked by the Military Police.

Levi's squad captures the two soldiers who tracked them who are no other than Marlo and Hitch, Annie's friends in the Military Police. After learning the truth that Annie was the Female Titan and the Scouts are being framed, Marlo and Hitch agree to help Levi's squad by telling them of an outpost that is least guarded by the Military Police. Levi and the others subdued the soldiers at the outpost while Levi tortures the Interior Police officer in charge for Eren and Historia's location. Meanwhile, Hange rescues Flegel from the Military Police, who are trying to kill him to cover the truth that his father was killed by the Interior Police. With Hange and Moblit's help, Flegel lures the Military Police to the Stohess District and tricks them into confessing the truth about his father's death, the government trying to frame the Scouts and cover up the truth to the residents of Stohess and some reporters before capturing them. With the people no longer fooled by the government's propaganda, Hange begins her next plan. Elsewhere, as Erwin is brought to the King before being executed, he warns his friend Nile he must choose a side before Pyxis begins the coup d'État.

At his trial before the fake king and his council, Erwin unsuccessfully puts his case to reclaim Wall Maria and avoid a potential civil war caused by people competing for limited resources. Just as Erwin is sentenced to death, news arrive that Wall Rose has been breached by Titans. However, rather than allow Wall Rose refugees shelter within Wall Sina, the council orders the gates closed, sacrificing the entire Wall Rose population. A disgusted Nile refuses to obey the order, and Commander-in-chief Dahlis Zachary arrives with his troops, revealing the news of the breach was a ruse. With the council's self-interest and disregard for human life now revealed, Pyxis announces a coup d'état and the Military take over the government and publish the news in the press. Later, Levi's squad receives the news, and Hange tells the others about the mysterious deaths of Rod Reiss' family at their Chapel. Meanwhile, in a crystalline underground chamber, an imprisoned Eren is approached by Historia.

Historia assures Eren that her father has good intentions even though he created problems for the Scouts and killed Pastor Nick. Rod then instructs Historia to touch Eren, triggering subconscious memories which leave Eren traumatized from learning that he was turned into a titan by his father Grisha on the night he received the key before eating him. The process also unintentionally triggers Historia's memories of meeting a girl named Frieda, whom Rod reveals to be Historia's half-sister who erased herself from the girl's memories. Rod explains that Frieda possessed a power kept in their family before Grisha, also able to turn into a Titan, killed her for it while slaughtering her four siblings and mother. Later, Kenny arrives and updates them on the coup d'état before preparing to defend the crystalline chamber beneath the Reiss chapel with his men. Meanwhile in the capital, Pyxis reveals to Erwin that the Reiss family possess the power to alter memories before Erwin leads a force out to rescue Eren. As Kenny Ackerman prepares his defense, he recalls his grandfather saying that the Ackermans were once bodyguards to the Reiss royal family but were exiled as the Reiss memory altering powers had no effect on them. Meanwhile, Levi's small squad finds a hidden trapdoor in the floor of the Reiss chapel and they prepare to descend and rescue Eren.

Levi's squad burst into the underground chamber and force the Interior Police into falling back to their second defensive position. Meanwhile, Rod explains to Historia that the cavern and city walls were built a century ago by their ancestor who used the Founding Titan's power to wipe the memories of all but a few immune bloodlines. Generations later, Frieda inherited the Founding Titan and the memories of their world before the walls. Rod explains that Frieda metaphysically lives on within the Founding Titan, with Historia realizing that she must become a Titan and eat Eren to gain the Founding Titan and see her sister again. When Kenny learns that only those of the Reiss bloodline can use the Founding Titan's power, he angrily betrays Rod by giving Eren a fighting chance to defend himself. Historia was about to inject herself with a Titan serum syringe when she realizes Eren is too guilt-ridden over deaths resulting from his father's actions to resist, pleading her to eliminate all the other Titans in his stead. Historia then realizes that Rod's true intent is restoring his family's power, revealing that the will of the first king to preserve the status quo will consume her like it did with Frieda and those before her. Historia refuses to go through with it, breaking the syringe on the ground while freeing Eren. But a desperate Rod is forced to lick up some of the serum and transform into a Titan himself and personally eat Eren.

Historia and the other scouts free Eren before being boxed in by the Abnormal Titan Rod Reiss has become, whose gigantic size causes the underground chamber to collapse. While Kenny and his group take the worst, Eren drinks a hardening serum that allows his Titan form to become support for the ceiling, saving his friends. The Scouts retrieve Eren from his crystallized Titan body and head back towards the Orvud District at Wall Sina. Meanwhile, the Reiss Titan crawls towards Wall Sina with no one able to get close without being incinerated by body heat which is burning everything in his path. After some discussion over how to handle the situation, everyone agrees that Rod must be killed rather be fed Eren with have the First King’s Will controlling him. Returning to the Orvud District, Levi reminds Historia that since she has royal blood, she must become the queen to complete the transition from the old government to which she reluctantly agrees on one condition. As the Reiss Titan approaches, Erwin surprisingly decides not to evacuate the citizens of Orvud.

Erwin justifies his decision not to evacuate Orvud District due Abnormal Titans targeting populations and decide to instead lure the Reiss Titan into a trap, with the first line's cannonfire having little effect while Eren punishes himself for being too weak, just being influenced by events around him. The Reiss Titan eventually reaches the wall, its face and chest having eroded from crawling for miles on the ground. The Scouts then implement their own plan; Eren assuming Titan form and plunging several barrels of gunpowder into the Titan's gaping mouth to destroy its body while the others quickly destroy the fragment holding Rod before he regenerates. Historia succeeds in killing Rod, seeing some of his memories before the explosion throws her into the city street. Historia recovers from her fall and formally introduces herself to the gathered civilians as the true ruler of the walls. Back at the Reiss estate, his group having all died in the cave-in, a dying Kenny recalls events in his past before being found by Levi. While Levi notes Kenny's fatal injuries, the older man reveals to have acquired a syringe of Titan serum.

As he lays dying, Kenny Ackerman recalls his past: his capture many years earlier by Uri Reiss in his Titan form; pledging loyalty to the family after Uri begged his forgiveness for the Ackerman family's persecution; bringing up his dead sister Kuchel's son Levi and teaching him the ways of a killer; becoming leader of the clandestine Anti-Personnel Control Squad; and wondering if the Reiss family's power could grant him the luxury of being compassionate. Kenny then explains to Levi why he has not injected himself with the Titan serum and Levi presses Kenny to reveal what he knows about Titans and his own family. With his dying words, Kenny reveals himself as Levi’s uncle before handing him the package containing the serum. In the capital, Historia is crowned queen with Levi congratulating her while thanking the Scouts for their effort in killing the Rod Reiss Titan. Meanwhile, the Beast Titan defeats Reiner and tells him and Bertholdt to regain the Coordinate.

It is two months since Historia's coronation and the military have purged remaining traces of the old regime. This cost talented manpower, however they gained an abundant supply of hardened Titan crystals from the Reiss estate. Meanwhile, Eren perfects his Titan hardening ability and Hange develops a new weapon called the "Executioner from Hell" that allows defenders to easily kill Titans who attack the walls without loss of human life. Eren recalls that Cadet Corps Commander Keith Shadis was the man in his vision who knew his father and the Scouts visit him. Keith tells them that he met Eren's father Grisha twenty years ago outside Wall Maria, suffering from amnesia. Grisha learned about life within the walls, offered his abilities as a doctor, and later married Carla who gave birth to their son Eren. During the Fall of Shiganshina, after learning about his wife's death, Grisha took Eren into the woods where Keith later found the boy wearing a key around his neck. Keith resigned as Commander of the Scouts due to his lack of confidence and the loss of his men, and instead focused on training the Cadet Corps. After hearing his story, the scouts make preparations to retake Wall Maria.

Hange is unable to analyse the Titan Serum's formula because of its volatile nature so Erwin entrusts it to Levi in the event it must be used to turn someone into a Titan. Erwin confirms arrangements are in place to retake Wall Maria, then he reveals a secret plan to use the Scouts to search the Yaeger family's basement. After the rest of the lieutenants leave, Levi tries to convince Erwin that Hange should command the Scouts, but he insists on leading the operation. On the night before their mission, the Scouts are treated to meat for dinner. Tensions are high, leading to a fight over portions and Eren provokes a fight with Jean. Later, Eren, Mikasa and Armin reminisce over their past, and reflect on their hopes for a future of life beyond the walls. On the eve of the operation to retake Wall Maria, the people of Trost gather to cheer on the Scouts and wish them success. As the Scouts ride out, Bertholt and Reiner stand guard on Wall Maria. In a mid-credits scene, Levi berates a shocked Eren and Mikasa, while standing beside two apparent corpses. He smacks Eren over the head which prompts Mikasa to hold him at blade point.

The Survey Corps treks through the forest under the darkness of a new moon, planning to retake the Shinganshina District in order to reach Eren's basement. On the way, they see a sleeping titan but manage to pass by without waking it up. The group arrives at the seemingly empty Shiganshina district and Eren easily blocks the hole in the outer wall with his titan hardening ability. Before Eren plugs the hole in the inner wall, Armin discovers a recently abandoned campsite and is given command to search for enemies planning an ambush. Armin assigns members of the Survey Corps to search for cavities within the walls and before long, Reiner bursts from a disguised hole in the wall and transforms into the Armored Titan. Suddenly, the Corps find themselves surrounded by Titans and the Beast Titan seals the inner entrance, trapping the horses within Shinganshina and preventing the Corps from using them to escape.

Reiner, as the Armored Titan, initially begins climbing up the wall towards the Survey Corps when the Beast Titan gives a signal and the 2-3 metre Titans within Wall Maria rush towards the wall, targeting the horses to cut of the escape route of the Survey Corps. Three squads are sent to protect the horses, while the Levi and Hange squads prepare to tackle the Armored Titan utilizing Thunder Spears. Erwin initially keeps Levi and Armin back, to target the Beast Titan. Meanwhile, the Armored Titan reaches the top of the wall and encounters Erwin waiting for it, but suddenly Eren transforms into his Titan form and flees. The Armored Titan takes the bait, abandoning its target of the horses, and chases Eren. They engage in a battle of force and wits as each tries to gain the upper hand, but Eren's training of hardening his hands pays off as he temporarily weakens the Armored Titan. Hange and her squad then attack it with Thunder Spears, aiming for the nape of the neck. Their initial attack weakens the Titan, so they follow up with a barrage of the spears in an attempt to finally destroy the Armored Titan along with Reiner.

As Bertholdt waits in his hiding place, he thinks back to the Battle of Trost where he and the others were forced to leave a defenseless Marcoh to be eaten by Titans after he overheard him and Reiner discussing a strategy to stop Eren plugging the hole in the wall. Bertholdt then recalls himself and Reiner meeting with War Chief Zeke in Shinganshina some time before the Survey Corps arrive, with Reiner criticizing hi friend's lack of commitment. Back in the present, the Armored Titan lets out a roar, signalling the Beast Titan to throw a barrel containing Bertholdt into Shinganshina. Seeing Reiner down, hoping his friend can hear him, Bertholdt does not immediately transform and instead confronts the Scouts. Armin attempts to negotiate with him, but Bertholdt reveals to have found his resolution and intends to kill everyone before swinging himself high into the sky to transform into the Colossal Titan, creating a massive fiery explosion. With the fate of Hange and her group ambiguous, Armin is hesitates over attempting an attack or retreat as the Colossal Titan begins to advance towards the inner wall.

The Colossal Titan Bertholdt turns Shinganshina into a sea of flames by scattering burning debris. Armin is frozen by indecision, handing command over to Jean as they head for the river and stay hidden. Outside the wall, the Beast Titan pitches a barrage of stones towards the scouts holding the horses outside the wall, shredding buildings and causing casualties among them. Levi has the remainder regroup with Erwin at the Wall's base. Back in Shinganshina, Eren vainly tries to stop the Colossal Titan by grabbing its foot, only to be knocked unconscious when kicked onto the wall. Jean orders Armin's team to attack with Thunder Spears, but the Colossal Titan deflects them with a huge burst of steam. The situation looks hopeless before Erwin suggests a counter-attack with himself and the remaining recruits as a sacrificial diversion so Levi can kill the Beast Titan, knowing that he would likely die without ever learning the truth concealed in the basement of Eren's house. Erwin gives a rousing speech to the recruits, convincing them that it is better to die fighting than be killed while hiding from flying rocks, and leads the charge towards the Beast Titan through a hail of rocks.

Erwin is mortally wounded while leading the charge against the Beast Titan, Zeke expressing mixed feelings while decimating the recruits as Levi reached him by taking out the Titans on his right flank. Levi manages to incapacitate the Beast Titan and rips Zeke out after inflicting enough injuries to keep him from resuming his Titan form, intending to turn one of the causalities into a Titan to feed the war chief to. But the Cart Titan snatches Zeke in its mouth and runs off, Zeke admitting to underestimate Levi while ordering the remaining Titans to attack him. Meanwhile, Armin realizes the Colossal Titan is immobile while using its steam and gives Eren some detail of his plan while the others hold off a somewhat confused Armored Titan, Reiner having lost his most recent memories due to the last attack. The group, joined by Hange who survived Bertholt's transformation, use two of their remaining thunder spears to shatter the Armored Titan's jaw hinges so Mikasa can use hers to blow Reiner out of his Titan body. When Eren's Titan form seems to be suffering an concussion, Armin deliberately challenges the Colossal Titan by having his ODM gear hook into the monster's tooth. Bertholt proceeds to burn Armin alive in his steam, learning too late that Armin used himself as a distraction so Eren can harden his Titan form and covertly maneuver himself into position to rip Bertholt out of the Colossal Titan. In the aftermath, Eren drags the limbless Bertholt towards the severely burnt Armin whom Eren recalls has always quietly been braver than he appears.

Eren finds himself alone with Armin's burnt body and the unconscious Bertholt. His reverie is interrupted by the Cart Titan carrying Zeke, who asserts that Eren was lied to by his father. Zeke departs when Levi arrives, still in pursuit, and promises to return and save Eren. Elsewhere, Hange interrogates her captive Reiner and sends Mikasa to get the serum from Levi, however the Cart Titan arrives and rescues Reiner. Meanwhile, Armin has started breathing and Levi prepares to inject him with the Titan serum. Suddenly, Floch Forster, the only surviving recruit from the suicide charge, arrives with the mortally wounded Erwin. Levi hesitates, conflicted over who should receive the life-saving serum. A struggle ensues among the group about who is the most appropriate person to be saved, with Mikasa physically attacking Levi before being restrained by Hange. Levi orders everyone to leave and prepares to inject Erwin, however Erwin withdraws his arm in delirium. Levi recalls his conversation with Erwin, who was prepared to die to help Levi destroy the Beast Titan, and he ultimately chooses to let Erwin rest in peace and give the serum to Armin instead. As Erwin succumbs, Armin becomes a mindless Titan and eats Bertholdt. Levi and Hange mourn the deceased Erwin while the rest of the squad share an emotional moment as Armin emerges healed from his Titan form.

Armin has a nightmare of a weeping Colossal Titan, and awakes with no memory of the events that followed his encounter with Bertholdt near the wall. The eight remaining members of the Survey Corps huddle around him to explain their situation, and Armin struggles with Levi's decision to bring him back instead of Erwin. Hange, Levi, Eren and Mikasa leave the others to investigate the basement of Eren’s former home in the ruined and deserted Shinganshina. Levi kicks open the basement door and the group learns that the key Eren was given by his father, Grisha, opens a desk drawer with a hidden compartment containing three well-preserved books. Inside one of the books is a family photograph with a man who appears to be Grisha, standing next to a woman holding an infant child. The woman does not appear to be Carla, and the child does not resemble Eren. An inscription written by Grisha on the back of the photograph explains that the image on the front was created by technology from a land beyond the walls, where people live in luxury.

In a post-credits scene Eren begins reading Grisha's book, which opens with Grisha recounting a time in his youth when he and his sister, Fay, lived in a city beyond Mitras and Wall Maria, the world Eren knows today. The children watched an airship fly overhead, and against their mother's instructions, Grisha impulsively dragged Fay beyond the walls of their district to watch it land.

The story of Grisha's youth continues, where the young Grisha takes Fay outside the Liberio Internment Zone for Eldians and they are caught by Public Safety soldiers, Kruger and Gross. Kruger punishes Grisha while Gross offers to take Fay home, however her bloodied corpse is later found. Grisha's father then tells Grisha the history of the Eldians and the Marley nation, leading to how some Eldians fled to Paradis Island and the rest were left behind in Marley to live as second class citizens. Grisha later learns that Fay was murdered by Gross and he joins the Eldian Restorationists rebel movement, supported by the secret informant "Owl". He then marries Dina Fritz, the last remaining Eldian with royal blood on the mainland, and they have a son Zeke who appears with them in a photograph. They attempt to raise Zeke as an infiltrator, but instead he betrays them to Marley authorities. Grisha and his fellow Restorationists are then taken by boat to the perimeter wall of Paradis Island to be forcibly turned into mindless Pure Titans, through injection of Titan spinal fluid. Grisha recognizes Kruger and Gross among the squad as Gross turns Dina into the Titan that will eventually devour Eren's mother. Suddenly, Kruger intervenes, shoving Gross over the wall to be eaten by a Titan. He reveals to Grisha that he is both the Owl and a Titan shifter as he transforms into the Attack Titan and annihilates the rest of the Public Safety soldiers. As Eren recounts the story using his Titan memory triggered by Grish's journals, Armin transcribe it.

Kruger reveals to Grisha that his full name is Eren Kruger and he is also an Eldian and turned his own people into Titans for years, believing that it would help his infiltration and thus, Eldia. He says that Grisha's mission is to infiltrate Paradis society, marry, have children and save his people by acquiring the power of the Founding Titan from the royal family. He tells Grisha that after thirteen years as a Titan he will soon die, and that Grisha must become a Titan, eat him, and inherit the powers of the Attack Titan. Meanwhile, Eren is freed from prison, and with the remaining Survey Corps he is taken to an audience with Queen Historia in Trost. After reading Ymir's farewell letter, she attends a meeting of the government and Survey Corps discussing the history of Titans and Eldian society. Hange warns that their enemies now include other humans in addition to Titans. She states that Eren cannot use the full powers of the Founding Titan because he lacks royal blood, but points out there was one situation where he could command the Pure Titans. Eren suddenly realizes that the Titan that killed Hannes and his mother was Dina and that if he touches a member of the royal family in Titan form he may be able to utilize the Founding Titan's powers, but decides to keep silent in fear of what the military might do to Historia if he revealed this knowledge. Finally, a scene is shown in the past when Kruger prepares to inject Grisha with the Titan serum, prior to sending him on his way to the walled city to continue his mission. He tells Grisha that he must save Mikasa and Armin, despite not knowing who they are himself. He muses that he may have learned the names through the Attack Titan's memories.
