* [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] can utilize Pym particles to grow to giant size, at which point he takes the name Giant Man or Goliath. At first, he was only able to go up to ten feet, but he's managed to go bigger. Modern portrayals show his normal giant size being somewhere around 25 to 30 feet.

In the ''Ultimate''-verse, his maximum height was designated at 59 feet, 11 inches; any bigger and his body would collapse under its own weight.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' features the return of the original giants, mostly as enemies. It also contains Yhorm the Giant, who looks similar to the Giant Lord from ''Dark Souls II'', with the same hole-for-a-face (though you can make out his eyes and the outline of a skull within it) and a weakness to a giant-slaying weapon that doesn't work on any other giant, suggesting he's of a different race.

* Giants in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' are armored behemoths that the gods conscripted into manual labor. While the three in Sen's Fortress don't speak and are hostile to the player, the Giant Blacksmith is a GentleGiant that is always happy to see the player. Hawkeye Gough, one of Gwyn's Four Knights, the mightiest warriors in Anor Londo, is also a giant, though he's an archer rather than a melee fighter. He's also very friendly and philosophical, and helps the player take down the Black Dragon Kalameet.
** Most of the gods are pretty big too, not to mention Sif the giant wolf and [[spoiler:Cross-Breed Priscilla]].
** In the [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsII sequel]] Giants are a race of stone-like beings with gaping holes for faces. The footsoldiers are about twice as tall as the average human, while the Last Giant and the Giant Lord [[spoiler:who are heavily implied to be one and the same]] are twice as tall as the average giant.

* Giants in ''The Palladium Fantasy RPG'' come in most of the same flavors as D&D, and also include the noble Titans and the mutant Gigantes. These species also made their way to ''{{Rifts}}'' in various ways. A Titan runs what's left of Houston, Texas, and a mercenary Jotan (equivalent to a D&D Hill Giant) wears a suit of PowerArmor that makes him look like a mech. The Jotuns of Norse mythology are in fact a combination of all these.

* Unlike in the [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire source material]], where the giants were club-wielding sasquatchs, the giants in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' resemble about 4 meters (13 feet) tall humans with massive foreheads and strength. They weave clothes for the cold climate, and have advanced weapons like giant bows capable of shooting 213 meters (700 feet) up. They still tame and ride mammoths.

* Persons with gigantism, a pituitary-related health condition leading to extreme height, were commonly featured in old-time sideshows. Promoters of such entertainments often boasted of (and shamelessly exaggerated) the extraordinary tallness of their performers. (To medically qualify as a giant, one must be 7 feet and up.)
