Out of the GTS community
This word is almost never used, instead, the word "giant" is used. See:
- They say "the giant" instead of "the giantess".
- They say "the giant woman" instead of "the giantess".
- They say "the giant (female sustantive)" instead of "the giantess (female sustantive)".
On the other hand, there are people who use the word giantess despite not belonging to the GTS community. These people are cultured linguists, usually are those who studied something related to letters (Law, Literature, History, Philosophy, Social Communication, etc.).
In the GTS community
Virtually everyone in the GTS community on Internet uses this word.
When a member of this community hears or reads this word, automatically he/she will feel that there is another member of his/her community (it is as if giantess or giganta was a keyword).
- Similarly it happens with the word titan: its respective feminine gender is titaness (in Spanish language: titánide).
The word "giantess" (giant woman) in other languages
- Portuguese: giganta.
- Italian: gigantessa.
- French: géante.
- German: riesin.
- Japanese: 巨大娘.
WARNING!: The limits of the intervals shown below do not have to be taken literally. For example:
- If a woman is 2.95 meters tall, she would be an amazon, but she could also be considered a mini-giantess, depending on the taste of each person.
- Diane is 9.14 meters tall, making her a classic giantess. However, there will be a minority who does not agree and will want to consider her as a mini-giantess (especially when she was a girl).
- There is a controversy regarding mega-GTS and giga-GTS, because not everyone agrees to define the size that separates them. Similarly it happens with the giga-GTS and the tera-GTS.
- Ultra-GTS have their own controversy.
The list below shows the intervals that are most used by the GTS fandom to classify gigantas:
|Sample image||Name||Size in meters (priority)||Size in feet (approach)||Description|
|Amazon||1,8 to 3||6 to 10||It goes from "tall" women to things that are biologically possible. Whereas Trijntje Keever (2.55 meters) and Zeng Jinlian (2.5 meters) were the tallest women in history.|
|Mini-giantess||3 to 9||10 to 30||They overcome (violate) the laws of physics (such as quadratic-cubic law) and biology, so these gigantas fit more into fantasy.|
|Classic giantess||9 to 20||30 to 66||The term "classic" is due to cult films of yesteryear like Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), that popularized the 50 feet as if it were the optimal size for a giantess.|
|Standard giantess||20 to 40||66 to 130||The term "standard" is because it is the most used (and wanted) size by most artists inside the GTS community. This size, according to many, is the most optimal for interaction with normal-sized humans.|
|Ultra-giantess||40 to 120||130 to 400||The prefix "ultra" is due to the name of giant superhero Ultraman, whose size ranges from 40 to 50 meters. It is also the most popular size of the tokusatsus, whose monsters and mechas barely exceed 100 meters.|
|Super-giantess||120 to 103||400 to 3,28·103||This is a size that exceeds the size accepted by the tokusatsus. Walking between cities is complicated and it is extremely difficult to interact with normal-sized humans.|
|Mega-giantess||103 to 104||3,28·103 to 3,28·104||The size is so large that they can step on a building with their foot. Impossible is to interact with normal-sized humans.|
|Giga-giantess||104 to 105||3,28·104 to 3,28·105||Women are so large that they can destroy an entire city only by using their body. They begin to be difficult to see from space.|
|Tera-giantess||105 to 106||3,28·105 to 3,28·106||They can cover whole cities with their body, in fact, they could bed down down on Mexico and cover much of this country. Due to the almost inevitable cliché of invulnerability, gigas reach the thermosphere (an area where it is impossible to breathe) and lives are maintained. This size allows them to walk across continents.|
|Peta-giantess||106 to 107||3,28·106 to 3,28·107||The heights of these women are in the ionosphere. Planet Earth is, for them, as big as King Kai's planet.|
|Exa-giantess||107 to 108||3,28·107 to 3,28·108||The heights of these women are so high that they can "embrace" the planet Earth with her whole body.|
|Zetta-giantess||108 to 109||3,28·108 to 3,28·109||Earth and similar planets (like Venus) would become like a marble for these women.|
|Yotta-giantess||109 to 1010||3,28·109 to 3,28·1010||Earth is insignificant for them. The Sun is, for them, as big as King Kai's planet.|
|Stellar giantess||1010 to 1014||3,28·1010 to 3,28·1014||They are larger than Sun and may be much larger than UY Scuti (the largest star detected so far). The adjective "stellar" is because their size is similar to the one of the stars.|
|Galactic giantess||1014 to 1024||3,28·1014 to 3,28·1024||Their size ranges from being much smaller than the size of M60-UCD1 (the smallest galaxy known so far) to exceed that of IC 1101 (the largest galaxy known so far).|
|Cosmic giantess||1024 to ∞||3,28·1024 to ∞||This size is the most exaggerated defined so far. It may be larger than the universe or multiverses.|
According to their context (special classification)
|Absolute giantess||It is a woman who is larger than what is "normal size" in the respective universe.|
In other words, that the same laws of nature (of their respective fictional world) have not given that woman her great size, but rather it was someone or something (external to said woman) that did it.
That external entity can be: sorcerer, scientist, god, demon, extraterrestrial, radioactive substance, magic potion, magic spell or anything that is fantastic (that is, that is related to fantasy).
|Imperfect giantess||It is a woman whose body (totally) has increased in size (relative to the universe around her), but not all parts of her body have grown in the same proportion.|
|Meta-giantess||Giantess of giants.|
|Para-giantess||It occurs when a woman (obligatorily of normal size) interacts with beings extraordinarily smaller than her.|
|⭐Perfect giantess⭐||It is considered as a perfect giantess to every female whose body (totally) has increased in size (relative to the universe around her), so that all parts of her body have grown in exactly the same proportion.|
|Pseudo-giantess||It is about a being that although it seems to be a absolute giantess, it really is not.|
|Relative giantess||A relative giantess is a woman who is relatively larger than another being.|
|Semi-giantess||It is about a woman who has grown in size (relative to the universe around her), but not all parts of her body have grown (i.e.: at least a part of her body retains its normal size).|
