Powers and Abilities of the Ninth Titan
The Ninth Titan has unique powers. It has instant regenerative powers like every other titan. The unique power of the War Hammer Titan is the ability to create any object from hardened titan skin. In the manga, we have seen the War Hammer Titan form large spikes protruding from the ground.
A special characteristic of this titan is that the wielder of the power doesn’t have to be inside the titan. Willy’s younger sister was controlling the titan from the underground in a hardened crystal. This provides a major advantage during battle as fighting the Titan would be useless.
The only flaw to this ability is the cable like titan flesh that connects the titan and the wielder of the power. The control over the titan is lost when the cable is tampered or dislocated. As a result, this is the only flaw that can bring down the War hammer titan.
