Secrets of the Titans is a technology available in Age of Mythology:The Titans. It is expensive, but when it is researched, the player enters the Titan Age.

The Titan is a massively powerful myth unit, that has a whopping 7000 HP and attack (70 hack, 70 crush), a cataclysmic special attack and near-impenetrable armor (89% crush and hack, 94% pierce). The Titan Age confers no further benefits.
