Gigantes tact

Tact artwork

The gigantes is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics[]

Gigantes are variants of cyclopes, having one eye, a single horn, and a bulky, humanoid build. Their skin is a light blue colour while their partial-tunics are a darker, greyer shade of blue.

Gigantes were originally green-skinned with teal garb. Their appearance in the original V can be seen as the midpoint of their colour changes from their original colours to the colour scheme they use today.
