Featured Article Ahoy! This here is the 9th Featured Article.
"John Giant" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
For the species in general, see Giants.

Vice Admiral John Giant is one of the marine officers in the Marine Headquarters.[2] He is the first giant to be revealed in the series, although his race was revealed much later than his first appearance.[4]

AppearanceEdit

John Giant is a giant, and towers over regular soldiers by several times. Unlike other Marines, his traditional white robe is customized, with yellow colorings, red borders, adding more rich details to his collar. He also carries awarded medals on his left breast, signifying his important rank and status. He wears a traditional red bicorne hat with the Marine's symbol. Unlike other high-ranking Marines, he actually wears his Marine coat with his arms in the sleeves. Underneath that, he wears an orange shirt, simple loose pants and boots. Overall, he appears to be a well decorated Marine. He also wields a katana that fits his size, slung over his shoulder.

He is shown to have curly brown hair with a large bulbous chin. Unlike most giants who have a more heavy rounded stature, John is one of the few giants to look the most human.

During the timeskip, he grew a bushy mustache.[5]

John Giant is a loyal Marine Vice Admiral, willing to risk his life during the Battle of Marineford by clashing with Whitebeard. He also seems to be very serious and stern.

Abilities and PowersEdit

Whitebeard vs. John Giant

John Giant attacks Whitebeard.

John is a giant which grants him strength and endurance that is several times greater than that of an average superhuman. He is a swordsman with a katana that fits his size.[4]

However, his skills cannot be clearly determined as he fought against the powerful Whitebeard, but was quickly defeated.

HakiEdit

Further information: Haki

It was stated that all vice admirals possess Haki, so John can also use the ability.[6] However, he has not yet been shown using it.

HistoryEdit

East Blue SagaEdit

Loguetown ArcEdit

He was first seen during the announcement of Luffy's first bounty. At that time, he was giving a speech about maintaining "Justice".[1]

Water 7 SagaEdit

Enies Lobby ArcEdit

He was seen again, shouting orders after the Buster Call was signaled.[7] When the signal was received a report was given directly to him, implying his high status at the headquarters, as well as the fact that he has the powers to command others of the same rank (via the five Buster Call vice admirals).

Summit War SagaEdit

Amazon Lily ArcEdit

When the execution of Portgas D. Ace was announced, Giant reported to the summoning of the Marines to reinforce Marineford.[4]

Marineford ArcEdit

He is seen gathering alongside his fellow Marines. Three hours before Ace's execution, he is seen rallying the 100,000 troops in Marineford for the upcoming battle.

After the pirates began their advance when Whitebeard began his attack, Giant charged forth entering into the plaza and attacking them. Due to his large size and strength, many of the pirates proved to be no match for him and could only flee from his rampage. He then directly attacked Whitebeard and tried cutting him down.

Whitebeard Defeats John Giant

John Giant is defeated by Whitebeard.

Whitebeard effortlessly blocked his strike, easily overpowering the giant. He then tilted the island, using his quake powers making John fall, losing his balance. Afterwards, he got back up to try and attack Whitebeard again, but the Yonko attacked him first this time, hitting him with a quake punch to the chest, severely wounding and defeating the Vice Admiral.
