Gigantes (formerly Giant and Gigante) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.
Gigantes are variants of cyclopes, having one eye, a single horn, and a bulky, humanoid build. Their skin is a light blue color while their partial-tunics are a darker, grayer 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 color changes from their original colors to the color scheme they use today.
It appears in the 3DS version.

Gigantes is the Spanish word for giants. Interestingly, giant was the name of this species in the original translation of Dragon Quest II. Gigantes can also refer to the giants of Greek myth that were fertilized by Gaia and fought the Greek Gods and Heracles.
In VIII, it is pronounced 'hee-gan-tay' by a barkeeper in Tryan Gully.
