Attack on Titan map photos from Episode 86
During the 86 episodes: Magath, Hange, Lady Azumabito, Jean, and others discuss how they can possibly give the Hizuru engineers time to fix the flying boat before the Jaegerists can stop it from taking off.
As a result, they devise a plan to leave Paradis island and do repairs in a mainland port, using a faster boat.
We’re told Eren’s Rumbling has already reached the continent itself and Liberio will be destroyed in less than half a day, which is how long it will take the engineers to fix the boat.
You can see Paradis island just off the coast of the continent that includes Marley in this closeup of the entire map.
As Hange points out, the rumbling itself will destroy the entire continent in four days, but I assume there are more continents on the planet than just Marley’s continent.
As you can see in the screenshots below, Lady Azumabito ultimately decides that it is best to travel to that port off the mainland.
Map of Reiner’s Paradis
The AOT map of Reiner’s Paradis is a detailed, hand-drawn AOT map that shows all of the small details of the Attack on Titan world. It was created by fan artist Reiner. Paradis map might be the most important one, due to the most actions have been there.

In Attack on Titan, the world map resembles the real-world map
In the world of Attack on Titan anime, the AOT map looks strikingly similar to our real-world map. The countries are in the same general locations, with a few exceptions.
For example, in Attack on Titan map, there is no country of Japan. Instead, there is a large body of water where Japan would be located in our real universe.
Some fans have theorized that this is because the Attack on Titan world is a future version of our own, where Japan has been lost to the Titans and only a few small pockets of humanity remain.
Others believe that the creators simply wanted to create a more believable and realistic world for their stories.
Hajime Isayama stated in a January 2017 – “I created that world to be like a mirror image of the world we live in.”
Other fans say that The Attack on Titan map appears to be the world map upside down. Just look at Australia turned upside down in the image below, compared to the map we just saw.
Here is the manga equivalent of Season 4 Episode 2. For some reason, it wasn’t included in the anime, but it mirrors the map from S4E27 nicely.
Basically, Paradis is Madagascar, but upside down.
This part of the world map matches up nicely with what we saw in the most recent episode.
It’s clear that a lot of thought and detail went into creating the Attack on Titan universe map. It’s yet another element that makes this anime so captivating and unique.
As a result of a fan’s imagination, the following theorized map depicts where Attack on Titan might be in an upside-down version of the real world.
There is a lot of overlap between the map shown above from the manga, but they also speculate on countries’ dividing lines.

Despite the fact that the map above isn’t accurate, it gives us an idea of how much of Attack on Titan’s world we don’t know about.
Attack On Titan: Forests and Greenland
Many times in anime series, you can see a vast green land with towering trees where the sun setting. Some of the trees are said to reach heights of 300 feet in the Forests of the Giant Trees.
Titans usually use these trees to conceal their presence because they can reach heights greater than most Titans can. The majority of this green land is outside the walls which adds some mystification to the Attack on Titan map.
Here is also a video explanation of the Attack on Titan map and its geography overall.
