"Moondust soft and pliant, send to Earth a giant!"
Rita's incantation that summoned the Giant[src]

The Giant was a giant knight monster who served as the secondary antagonist of the episode "High Five."

History

After the death of Bones, Rita Repulsa doesn't give up and yells out an incantation that summons this giant monster. Once it appears in Angel Grove, it pulls Jason out of Bones's dimension and the bomb that Squatt and Baboo have planted explodes and sends the remaining Power Rangers out of the dimension and straight off a cliff. The Giant is about to strike the now captive Red Ranger but Jason uses his Blade Blaster to blast the Giant in the eye, causing him to drop the hero. Now angered, the Giant tries to cleave the Power Rangers in two with his sword but they dodge and Jason, determined to stop the villain, summons the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord. They square off in the countryside, wrestling arm to arm before the Giant throws off the Zord. The Giant pulls out its sword and slashes through it at impressive speeds but the Tyrannosaurs slaps him down with a double slash from its tail. The Giant tries to make a comeback but is restrained by the arm and double kicked down once it breaks free. Jason then finishes off the Giant with the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord's ground breath attack, obliterating the monster and reducing him to rubble which the Tyrannosaurs roars away.

Personality

The Giant was a very brutal and savage monster who enjoyed destroying everything at his path but was also unintelligent, only speaking in roars.

Powers and abilities

  • Strength: The Giant was strong enough to punch through dimensions with a single blow and wrestle with the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord.
  • Durability: The Giant took powerful hits from the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord's tail, being unaffected by the first hit and a powerful double kick sent him flying back in a flipping motion but he was unfazed and got back up again.
  • Hand-To-Hand Combat: In addition to his raw strength, the Giant was also a skilled fighter and swordsman, being able to match and even temporarily overwhelm the Tyrannosaurus.

Arsenal

  • Sword: The Giant carried a giant broadsword for combat.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • The Giant was voiced by Tom Wyner although he provided only grunts, growls and roars.

Notes

  • 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 to fight a Zord.
  • In Zyuranger, Dora Titan was the first monster to appear in Zyuranger since he appeared before Dora Skelton at the end of the first episode.
    • The likely reason this was changed was to ensure that the episode did not conclude with Bones' anticlimactic destruction.
  • The Giant is one of the few (known) monsters of Rita who grows giant but is not destroyed by the Megazord.
