"What does it mean to be a Titan? As a Titan, you are a part of the City - in a way no Warlock or Hunter could understand. The dream of the City rests upon our shoulders."
— Commander Zavala

The Titan is a class of Guardian. They tend to have the highest armor of any of the three classes in Destiny and the lowest agility.


"Strive for honor. Stand for hope."
Grimoire description

They are equipped with suits of powered armor that boost their strength and endurance. Titans utilize their strength and skill with firearms to kill their enemies.

Titans have long honed the Light of the Traveler, passing these skills to each new generation of warrior. Their strength gave birth to the City, and they have taken a blood oath to ensure it will always stand strong.[1] The Wall surrounding the City was built by the first Titans, who also perished defending it.[2] Steadfast and suresighted, Titans face any challenge head-on, serving as living, blunt force instruments of the Traveler’s will.[3]

Class Description[edit]

"The first Titans built the Wall, and gave their lives to defend it. Now, you stand in the same high place, steadfast and sure, protecting all who shelter in your shadow. You hail from a long line of heroes, forged from strength and sacrifice. Our enemies may be deadly and merciless, but so are you."
— Class Description


All Guardians have certain abilities, some of which are granted by the Traveler. All Guardians have a vertical movement ability and a "grenade-type" ability whose effects vary by class.[4][5] All these abilities with the exception of the double jump can be upgraded over time and can be used in competitive PvP.[6][7]

Titan Orders[edit]

Known Titans[edit]




  • Titan armor was inspired by Medieval armor layered over tight-fitting suits.[14]
  • The armor worn by the Titans is similar in overall design to the MJOLNIR powered armor worn by Spartan supersoldiers in the Halo series. The SPARTAN-II program's creator, Dr. Catherine Halsey, considered calling the project "Titan" before settling on the final name.
  • The T-shaped visors of some Titan helmets are reminiscent of the Corinthian-style helmets used by the ancient Greeks. Such helmets are strongly associated with Spartan hoplites, both historically and in popular culture.
  • The Titan emblem represents the four Titan Orders which stood during Six Fronts.
