Founding Titan:

Roughly 2000 years ago Ymir Fritz gained the power of titans when she was chased and ran inside a huge tree and fell under it. A spine-like creature attaches itself to Ymir and thus she becomes the first titan. know as the founder of the founding titan. After the death of Ymir, she founds herself on a mysterious path. Then founding titan was passed down Reiss family. until Grisha Yeager, the attack titan eats Frieda and takes the founding titan. later he injects his son, Eren with titan serum and gets eaten by him.

Eren’s Founding Titan:

Over the years Eren has learned to use hardening and unmatched strength in a very short time. Also, he understood that to use the powers of the founder he needs royal blood. Also, he has the ability to attack titan i.e. he can see into the future of the titan inheritor. this can be seen when Eren Kruger mentions Mikasa and Armin even before they were born. Eren also uses this ability to push grishia in order to take the founding titan, so that he could acquire it.

later Eren eats the young sister of willy Tybur, who had the war hammer titan. thus gaining the powers of war hammer titan. Now we all knew that Eren does not have royal blood, hence was not able to use the founder’s power. Except when he came in contact with Dina fritz’s titan. He was able to use it for a brief time.

After which Eren unleashes all the colossal titans inside walls to protect his loved ones.
