* The defining trait of the Zentraedi from ''Franchise/{{Macross}}'' is that they are about three to four stories tall. They were engineered that way so they would be physically tougher and better suited for battle. When they begin integrating with human society, most of them shrink themselves to a regular human size, but there are some communities that prefer to remain giants (which results in some interesting mixed-size accommodations in the later series).

* StanLee's ''Riftworld'' series has a race of giants from AnotherDimension -- they're basically scaled-up humans supported by [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], genetically engineered by an alien AI. And nearly every one a JerkAss.

* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' had an arc where Gina and Brianna's boyfriends were studying a tribe where exposure to mysterious energies caused a shift in size and strength that affected their women much more dramatically than the men. Generations later, while the males barely cleared eight feet, the women of the tribe were more like Zentraedi. Fortunately, their reproductive systems remained compatible with their men, but it also left them with an attraction to the pheromones given off by a frightened or nervous male. This caused problems for Brianna's Jungle Boy boyfriend Zan, who was pursued by one particularly insistent giantess until the chief pointed out that Brianna's pregnancy meant ''she'' had already claimed him.

* The Qunari of ''Franchise/DragonAge'' are sometimes called giants by non-Qunari, and not without good reason: they tower over the other races, common specimens being at least seven feet high. Qunari are also born with horns, though some of them have them shorn (the Saarebas Ketojan, for example), and a rare few are born entirely without them (the Sten from the first game). Also unusually for giants in fantasy games, the Qunari have a very ordered society that dictates and cements an individual's place in society based on their talents, a strong urge to spread this philosphy to the rest of the world, a spectacular grasp of gunpowder weaponry in an otherwise [[MedievalStasis Medieval setting]], and a caste of mages known as Saarebas who are kept [[SlaveCollar collared]] and supervised at all times to prevent [[DemonicPossession any form of corruption]]. (word of god succinctly described them as "militant islamic borg".

* In the second "VideoGame/TheBattleForMiddleEarth" game, Mountain Giants are a unit for the "Corrupted Wild"/Goblin side. They are even bigger than Trolls, and due to their attacks of throwing boulders seem to be the same type of Giants listed at the top.

* In ''[[DungeonSiege Dungeon Siege 2]]'', there exist Agallan Giants, a race of [[UltimateBlacksmith Ultimate Blacksmiths]] who live in seclusion in the mountains and are easily 50 foot tall, and a good deal wide as well. Descended from them are Half-Giants, who are more sensibly sized but still tower over any human. They are the offspring of a group of banished and cursed Agallans who lost their enormous proportions and limitless lifespan. Because the banished group had no female members, they were forced to interbreed with other species, and the result was a OneGenderRace of Half-Giants whose gene pool is doomed to be [[DyingRace diluted into nothingness]].

They do, however, tend to occupy important positions among their ranks (AsskickingEqualsAuthority is in full swing with orcs, and giants are about as tall as a tower, and ''much'' wider and fatter), and often bear armor of their making. Oh, and on top of being just as belligerent and warlike as regular orcs, they're almost always hungry, and don't have many qualms with eating food that talks back.
