"Ancestors, give me strength!"
― Nightwolf, Mortal Kombat
"It is The Roar of the Elders! When you use it the great lions of the Pride Land's past roar with you."
― Rafiki (The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar)
"So you can't help but think that maybe the Subjects of Ymir are all connected by something invisible. One successor said they saw paths. Paths invisible to the eyes. The blood and bones that formed a Titan were sent to them through those paths. At times, those paths even carried memories or the will to act. And all of those paths cross at a single coordinate. In other words, that... is the Founding Titan. All Titans... all Subjects of Ymir are connected to that coordinate. Through paths that transcend physical space."
― Eren Yeager (Attack on Titan)
