While in the arena, Titus went completely savage and resorted to cannibalism. As soon as he made a kill, he would eat his victims' hearts. Although the Hunger Games was a no-rules, free-for-all competition; cannibalism did not go well with the Capitol audience, as the Gamemakers had to censor most of his kills and electrically stunned him so that they could clear up the bodies of the deceased tributes.
Titus was eventually killed in an avalanche, which was thought to have been set up by the Gamemakers to ensure that the victor was not a lunatic. This set the precedent that cannibalism was not tolerated in the Games and would result in plotted death, as well as a reminder that the only way to win was to appeal to the Capitol.
- The name Titus may be a reference to the Shakespeare play "Titus Andronicus", in which the titular character goes insane after the rape of his daughter, Lavinia. Though the character in the play does not resort to cannibalism himself, he does kill his daughter's rapists and tricks their mother into eating their remains. Coincidentally, Lavinia is the name of the Avox girl in the book.
- Titus is the only known cannibalistic tribute.
- Titus is the only District 6 citizen whose name is revealed in the series until Otto and Ginnee's appearance in The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.
