* 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.)

* In George RR Martin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', giants are a species of shaggy, ape-like people in the frigid north of Westeros. They stand around fourteen feet tall, wield crude clubs in battle, and ride woolly mammoths. A dwindling species, giants are little more than a legend to the majority of the continent. Wildlings believe that particularly large humans (for instance Hodor at more than seven feet tall, Gregor Clegane at 8 feet) have some giant blood.
