Hello there, friend. How are you?I
The Giant greeting the player

Giant is an unseen minor character and Easter egg character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.



Not much is known about the giant, other than the fact that he lives in a cave just east of Fairvale Shanty in the Grizzlies East region of Ambarino, and that he is very lonely.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

The player can encounter the giant, who speaks to the character from behind a closed-off cave entrance that is inaccessible to the player. He will greet the player and the two will have a short conversation.

A second conversation can be had after three in-game days.



Not much is known of the Giant's personality, as you are only able to speak with him a couple times, with both interactions being extremely brief. However, one can deduce that he is friendly, while also being socially inept, as he unnecessarily repeats himself.

The Giant appears to have a unique relationship with animals, as a flock of birds guide you to his destination on your first meeting; he also mentions that he's good with animals during one of the conversations you can have with him.


I'm rather lonely, you see... I'm too big.
The Giant to player


  • An invisible NPC voicing the giant in-game can be killed by the player.
  • The giant can only be encountered if the player has studied at least 30 different species of animals. The “Studied” status of an animal can be found in the “Animals” section of the Compendium.
  • Cut audio files suggest the Giant was originally meant to be physically encountered by the player, rather than being obscured behind a boulder as seen in the final game.[1]
    • Cut dialogue states he had recently escaped from a circus.
