The Giants are a race of supernatural beings, resembling humans, who can be found in numerous mythologies.
In the Greek mythology the Giants were born from Gaia as the blood of Uranus rained down on her after Kronos castrated Uranus. At some point, the description of the giants in Greek mythology came to include them having serpents for legs.
According to the story as relayed by Barnabas to the Spartan misthios Kassandra during the Peloponnesian War, the Greek island of Mykonos was built on or out of the corpses of the Giants slain by the legendary hero Herakles.
- The temples in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey have fictional bronze pedimental sculptures or murals depicting the Gigantomachy, the battle between the Giants and the Greek gods in Greek mythology. Furthermore, pedimental sculptures were made of marble and not bronze.
- During the Hundred Years' War, the French guard Antoine Moreau was given the epithet "the Giant" owing to his large stature.
