Titans is an elite and corrupt unit of the Earth Federation Forces charged with patrolling the Earth Sphere and are the main antagonists of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.
They were originally formed to combat violent Zeon supporters and prevent an incident like the One Year War from happening again. However, the Titans soon became corrupt, with many of their officers using their positions to oppress and murder Spacenoids as well as carry out other atrocities. Due to the Earth Federation's unwillingness to step in, movements such as the Anti-Earth Union Group (AEUG) and Karaba were formed to combat them.
Titans was established in UC 0083 in response to the Operation Stardust attack performed by the Delaz Fleet and their original stated purpose was to defend the Earth Federation against supporters of the Principality of Zeon, as well as to investigate Zeon sympathizers. The man behind Titans formation was Earth Federation politician and Admiral Jamitov Hymem who, alongside his second-in-command Bask Om, had secretly ensured Operation Stardust occurred he could obtain permission to form the Titans.
After Titans was formed, it soon became staffed by many who held anti-Spacenoid views. As Titans obtained more political power, its jurisdiction grew to hunt down all who opposed the Earth Federation.
Eventually, in response to the oppression of the Titans, on 31 July U.C. 0085, a massive protest was held in Side 1's 30th Colony against the Titans. However, the protest quickly morphed into a riot, leading to the Federation Forces stepping in to stop the riots. After the Earth Federation Forces' attempts to stop the chaos failed, the Titans were sent in to put an immediate end to the riots. The Titans opted to cut off the colony's air supply and fill it poison G3 Gas, killing the entire population of the colony. Despite outrage over the Titans' handling of the event, the Earth Federation Council did not charge the Titans with any wrongdoing. In response to this, dissident citizens and soldiers from both Earth and the colonies formed resistance movements to combat the oppression of the Titans, the Karaba to fight them on Earth and the AEUG to fight them in space.
In response to the growing resistance from the AEUG and Karaba, the Earth Federation only increased the Titans' power, granting them control and oversight of most of the Earth Federation military. However, this only bolstered the opposition to the Titans.
Eventually, the Titans' war crimes were exposed after the AEUG occupied the Earth Federation capital during a televised assembly and broadcast the true extent of the Titans' terrorism to the general public. No longer able to hide the Titans' brutality, the Earth Federation was forced to disband the organization. However, in response to this, the Titans turn rogue and split off from the Earth Federation. Seeking to hijack the Titans for his own ambitions, Titans technical officer Paptimus Scirocco had Jamitov Hymem assassinated and usurped leadership of the Titans with the support of most of the Titans' senior officers, most notably the infamous Yazan Gable. The Titans betray their original purpose by allying themselves with Axis Zeon to gain control over the Earth Sphere, leading to a final battle between the AEUG, Titans and Axis Zeon that determined the end of the Gryps Conflict in UC 0088. The Titans were ultimately wiped out by the AEUG, but their final battle set the stage for Axis/Neo Zeon, which emerged as the strongest power following the end of the war.
Many of the surviving members of the Titans watched in horror as the Titans were finished with some of them formed their own group while others went to join Axis.

- The A-Laws from Gundam 00 and Blue Cosmos from Gundam Seed are remarkably similar to the Titans in both methods and philosophy.
- OZ from Gundam Wing is also very similar to the Titans, as both were a corrupt elite sector within their respective Terran forces.
