Biography

The Giant is summoned by Rita Repulsa after Bones's defeat in order to try and salvage the scheme. Once it appeared in Angel Grove, it pulled Jason out of Bones's 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. Although it initially proves a match for the Zord, temporarily overpowering it with his sword, but two swings of its tail took him out and a massive double kick was the knockout blow. With the monster down for the count, Jason destroys the Giant with 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.

Powers And Abilities

  • Durability: Despite being only the second monster, the Giant can take powerful hits from the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord's tail, being unaffected by the first hit and knocked down by the second. and a powerful double kick sent him flying back in a flipping motion but he was unfazed and got back up again. Due to his massive size, being shot in the eye by Jason's Blade Blaster did little damage although the pain made him drop Jason.

Arsenal

  • Sword: The Giant carried a sword for combat.
