    What does having a giant classification exactly do to a unit? I heard sometime ago that units that units having this classification could not be devoured but I just tested this and it's not true. So does anybody have any idea what this classification actually does.

    Quoting an old post: "Giant does nothing except showing a text 'Giant' and allowing trigger manipulation (lol)."

    I've wondered this myself before. I've found a purpose for just about every other classification. But fairly certain Giant does nothing. My original theory was it prevented Zeppelins from carrying them. (But that isn't the case either.)

    I wish they added more Classifications like this though, simply for trigger functionality.

    One of the original habilities of the mountain king (back in the Alpha stage of the game) was that he would increase his size and strenght every time he killed a giant unit
