They have the same appearance as a zombie, but are six times larger. Before their AI was removed in 1.8, their only method of attack was to charge endlessly at the player. Giants have 50 hearts total, half of the Ender Dragon's, but still equally deadly. They are capable of being spawned with the /summon command (since 1.7), and third-party programs such as SinglePlayerCommands (SPC), but they cannot spawn naturally, due to requiring a light level of both greater than 11 and less than 8. They can ride in minecarts, which will cause a bug where the giant appears to levitate above the minecart while sitting on nothing.

If you try to spawn a giant from a spawn egg it can crash your game(except in the Xbox 360 release).
