The Giant is a giant knight monster summoned by Rita Repulsa, and is one of the two primary antagonists of the episode "High Five", the other being Bones.

The Giant is known for being the first giant monster in the Power Rangers franchise and thus the first monster in the entire Power Rangers franchise to fight a Zord.

Biography

The Giant is summoned by Rita Repulsa after Bones' defeat. She said this incantation to summon him:

"Moondust soft and pliant, send to Earth a giant!"
Rita Repulsa[src]

Once it appeared in Angel Grove, it pulled Jason out of Bones' dimension, the bomb that Squatt and Baboo had set off explodes and sends Trini, Kimberly, Zack and Billy, off the building. The Giant was about to strike the now captive Red Ranger, but Jason used his Blade Blaster to blast the Giant in the eye, causing him to drop the hero, now angered, the Giant attacked the other four Rangers with his sword, but Jason summoned the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord and the Giant is destroyed by the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord's ground breath attack.

Personality

The Giant is a very brutal and savage monster who enjoys destroying everything at his path. He is also unintelligent, only speaking in roars.
