** Charlotte Linlin, aka Big Mom, seems to be some kind of freak, since she was the size of a normal giant child when she was five years old, despite having normal-sized parents. As an adult, she is seemingly taller than a house, but is significantly smaller than actual giants.

* In Dante's ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' the Ninth Circle is surrounded by a wall of giants imbedded up to their waists and wrapped in chains, except for Antaeus, who died before the Giant rebellion and so isn't chained. Virgil convinces him to put him and Dante in the Last Circle, which Antaeus does by picking them up from the top of the wall and putting them down at its bottom.



* Between the ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'''s circles of deception and betrayal, Hell is littered with giants who were so arrogant in their strength that they rose against the Heavens. This includes the Greek giants who fought to overthrow Zeus and Nimrod, the mighty warrior from [[Literature/BookOfGenesis Genesis]] who organized the Tower of Babel. Dante at first mistakes them for statues, which only tells you how huge the Devil is when Dante observes that he "matches better with a giant's breadth than giants match the measure of his arms."

* In Creator/StephenSondheim's ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'', the giants are so big that they don't fit on stage, and when one of them steps on a human character all the lights go out... Doom, gloom, BOOM, cruunnnch...

* The Ultras from the ''Series/UltraSeries'' are commonly referred to by the InSeriesNickname Giants of Light (or Dark Giants for the extremely rare evil Ultra). Given they're 50 meter tall humanoids with even more strength than that would imply, it's a fitting description.

Added DiffLines:

* Giants are extremely common in Native American mythologies, where they are almost universally portrayed as cannibalistic boogeymen (sometimes boogeywomen) who capture misbehaving children who venture too far out into the woods and bring them to their mountain lairs to be eaten. Fortunately, they tend to be outsmarted easily. Interestingly, a few folklorists and Native Americans have identified these creatures with [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Sasquatches]].

* Purported giant remains have been the subject of many an archaeological hoax, such as the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardiff_Giant Cardiff Giant]].

** To simplify things, in the One Piece World, you have, from smallest to largest: normal humans as we know them that are around the 5 foot to 7 foot height (Luffy, Zoro, Robin, Franky, and pretty much the average people seen around the world; this category is the most common), big/tall humans around the 8 foot to 16 foot area (Crocodile, Brook, Kuzan, Doflamingo, Katakuri, etc. ), ''really'' big humans around the 18 to 25 foot tall area (Gecko Moria, Kuma, Whitebeard, etc.), Non-Elbaf giants around 30 feet or so tall (Jaguar D. Saul), Elbaf giants around 50 or so feet tall (Oimo and Kashii, as seen above), big demon-like giants that are around 200 feet tall (Oars, also seen above, and Little Oars Jr., his descendant), and lastly ''extremely'' big demon-like giants who may very well be several hundreds of feet tall (San Juan Wolf). There are also [[FishPeople fishmen]]/[[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merfolk]] that are big due to their fish-race (or sometimes ''in spite'' of it) that vary between all categories; the mermaid princess Shirahoshi is about as big as an Elbaf Giant, dwarfing both her giant-sized father and her human-sized mother, whereas the fishman Wadatsumi is about as big as Oars.
