According to scholars, the Giganticus Lupicus, also known as Great Giants and True Giants, were beings that walked the soil of Tyria long before the Forgotten were brought into the world by the gods, and it has been estimated that they became extinct 10,000 BE. Little is known about the giants other than what can be inferred from their gigantic remains that lay scattered about Tyria.
- Scholars often refer to them by their scientific name, "Giganticus Lupicus," while others call them "Great Giants" and "True Giants."
- Before Guild Wars 2, the giant skeletons located throughout much of Tyria and Elona were suspected to be Giganticus Lupicus remains by players. However, it seems more clearly not to be the case.
