* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': The Titans are giants of varying size. Some are small at around 3-5 meters, most are around 7 meters, the usual biggest are around [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever 15 meters]]. Then we have the Colossal Titan at about [[{{Kaiju}} 60 meters]]. Also nearly all Titans are [[ImAHumanitarian horrible]] [[HumanoidAbomination monsters]], they are [[LightningBruiser VERY fast]], and a few people, [[spoiler:like Eren, can transform ''into'' Titans.]] There is also a new Ape-like Titan which is 18 meters tall and is [[GeniusBruiser highly intelligent]] and [[AffablyEvil courteous]].

** Then you have the millions of [[spoiler:60-meter tall Colossal Titans that live in the walls, waiting to be called upon so that they can flatten everything in their path and destroy the Earth...]]

** There are also the giant-kin, a group of species of "giant-ish" beings who are smaller, less physically imposing and usually less intelligent than true giants, but are related to them and in some settings descend from them. The most famous giant-kin are ogres and trolls, but other species include the cyclopes and the hideous fomorians.
** Giant society is highly stratified, with a complex social structure known as the Ordning determining where each giant stands compared to the others. The various giant species tend to occupy specific places in the Ordning: generally, this has Storm Giants on top, then Cloud Giants, Fire Giants, Frost Giants, Stone Giants and Hill Giants, with giant-kin at the bottom.

** To simplify things, in the One Piece World, you have 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 15 foot area (Crocodile, Brook, Kuzan, Doflamingo, Trebol, 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), ''extremely'' big demon-like giants who may very well be several hundreds of feet tall (San Juan Wolf), and lastly fishmen/mermaids that are big due to their fish-race (or sometimes in spite of it) that vary between all categories (Shirahoshi is about as big as an Elbaf Giant whereas Wadatsumi is about as big as Oars).

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** Giants are a species of shaggy, ape-like people living in the frigid north of Westeros. They stand around fourteen feet tall, are strictly herbivorous, wield crude clubs in battle, and ride woolly mammoths. It's noted that their legs and hips are much larger, proportionally, than a human's, in order to hold up their massive weight. A dwindling species, giants are little more than a legend to the majority of the continent, despite once having been widespread throughout Westeros and Essos.
** The Wildlings believe that particularly large humans (for instance Hodor at more than seven feet tall, Gregor Clegane at eight feet) have some giant blood, although whether humans and giants can actually interbreed is unknown.

* In ''Literature/TheLaundryFiles'', the AlternateUniverse / BadFuture threatening the world in the first book was created when [[{{Ghostapo}} the Nazis]] of that world used the people killed in the Holocaust as a makeshift HumanSacrifice to summon a frost giant from Myth/NorseMythology. Unfortunately for them (and the rest of that universe), the "giant" turned out to be more of an EldritchAbomination and embodiment of cold that proceeded to drain all heat, freezing Earth and eventually the entire universe.

* 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."
