Giant is a race of creature as well as a Race Category of creatures in the Nature Civilization.

Nomenclature[]

Giant creatures feature 超人 (Chōjin) as Kanji meaning "Superman" in their card names, with ジャイアント (Jaianto) written above it in katakana meaning "Giant".

Evolution creatures have 大宇宙 (Daiuchū) meaning "the Great Expanse" in their names.

  • Evolution creatures that also have the Samurai race have 大神秘 (Daishinpi) meaning "the Great Engima" in their names.

Giants in the Episode 2 block are named after food.

Story[]

With three eyes, enormous muscles, horns on their shoulders, and a human-like posture, they have evolved into powerful creatures that flourish in the harsh environment. Their tough skin, like a suit of armor, protects during enemy attacks. Immense upper and lower body strength allows them to withstand dense gravity. For the most part, Giants are simple-minded and gentle. However, when disturbed, all three eyes will open wide, and Giants can become ferocious and brutal.

The Giants first appeared in DM-03 where they rose up to protect the Fiona Woods when the Darkness forces had went near the innermost part of the forest.

While they are extinct in the Phoenix Saga, Stratosphere Giant is known to exist at that time due to a lack of enemies. It might had died of old age in the God Apex Saga.

In the Sengoku Saga, most Giants are also Samurais. However, some are Knights or Shinobi.

In Episode 2, the Giants were converted by the Unknowns and their design are usually related to eating food. They later awoke to the power of emotions and fought with the Golden Age resistance force.

Gameplay[]

Most Giants released early in the game often have certain drawbacks in order to complement their high power and low cost, such as Nocturnal Giant's inability to attack creatures or Headlong Giant's requirement to discard a card while attacking. This tradition has ended with Bodacious Giant in DM-10. However, as the game's Power Creep started, appropriately costed Giant creatures had started to appear.

There were no Giants printed in the Reincarnation Saga as well as the Phoenix Saga, with the latter being where most old races became extinct until the Gods revived them.

Race Category[]

Other Giant races include:

It was combined with other race categories in the Abyss Revolution block to form the following races:

Giant was focused as a Race Category after the release of DM23-RP1 Battle Tales of Twin Dragons.

It was later paired with the Water Civilization.
