Giant Form (巨大化 Kyodai-ka, lit. "Gigantification") is a transformation used by numerous characters.
The transformation causes the user to grow to enormous proportions, reaching a much larger size and increasing their power by an unspecified multiple.
Usage and Power
Annin takes on a Giant Form when she battles against Goku.
Hatchiyack takes on a giant form in one of the ending scenarios of Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Shin Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku - Uchū-Hen, however, he is defeated when Goku flies inside him and destroys his core with a Kamehameha.
Although not a true giant form, the Legendary Super Saiyan form is similar in nature to those forms due to the user having a significantly increased height in addition to bulking up.
Super Buu takes on a "giant" form while battling Goku inside his own body, though he is not actually a real giant, he is just larger than anyone inside him.
"Twisting into something hideous. It's the physical embodiment of what he feels within. He is obsessed, fixated on the contradiction of Gods and Mortals. If Mortals have capacity for wisdom, why do they so often fail? If Gods see their actions as wicked, why do they tolerate it and forgive? How could Gods and Mortals seem so different and so alike? What is the point of it all? Zamasu seeks beauty. Yet, look at his body. It's distorted by hatred and rage. I wonder, is that really the result that he craved? A broken, misshapen God alone in a vacant cosmos. How fulfilled will he be then?"
— Gowasu explaining Zamasu's crazed emotions that make this form in "Showdown! The Miraculous Power of Unyielding Warriors"
Fused Zamasu is created from the fusion of Future Zamasu, who is immortal, and Goku Black, who isn't immortal and is far stronger than Future Zamasu. Because of this Fused Zamasu was not completely immortal and became half corrupted. According to Gowasu, this form is a result of Zamasu's complex emotions made real. From why humans would make mistakes and fight each other, why the gods would forgive mortals, to why gods and mortals are in fact similar.
After having half of his body disfigured by Goku's God Kamehameha, Fused Zamasu calls upon the Light of Divine Justice to severely injure his arm - causing his arm to become larger, much more muscular and creating more scarred flesh - but also increased Fused Zamasu's power. His aura also changed into a fusion of Future Zamasu's purple aura on the inside and the dark red outer part of Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black's aura. This increase allowed Fused Zamasu to power up even further, which forced Goku and Vegeta to fuse into Vegito to even the odds. During his fight with Vegito, Fused Zamasu's body becomes more and more unstable as his power and anger increases.
As Fused Zamasu became more and more unstable, he bulks himself up and grows to become huge, pushing his power even further and adapting to his rage and hate. However, even after taking on this form, Vegito possessed the upper-hand over Fused Zamasu, who could not keep up with his speed. Nevertheless, Fused Zamasu became more durable than ever, surviving Vegito's Final Kamehameha and Savage Strike before he defused and despite the damage, Zamasu received continued to fight with Future Trunks. Slowly gaining more damage each battle, Fused Zamasu couldn't kill Goku or Vegeta and ultimately led to his destruction at the hands of Spirit Bomb Super Saiyan Future Trunks.
Bergamo can achieve his Giant form through damage absorption; for each hit he receives he grows in size and power.
Through Formation, Brianne de Chateau can create a giant battle avatar of Ribrianne. She used her giant battle avatar in an attempt to defeat Android 18, however 18 rammed her out of the giant avatar's head and off the arena.
In his complete Autonomous Ultra Instinct state, Goku can create a giant battle avatar of himself. He used this giant avatar to grapple with Moro - who had absorbed himself into the Earth - allowing his actual body to hit Moro's head crystal, defeating him.

Video Game Appearances
Annin appears in this form in Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans.
In Dragon Ball Z: V.R.V.S., in Vegeta's ending he wishes to Shenron to have "the world beneath his feet", Shenron misinterprets the wish, resulting in him being transformed into a giant standing on the Earth. It is by far the largest Giant Form in the series (its size is comically huge as he is larger than the planet Earth) which is ironic given Vegeta's short height when he was first introduced.
in Dragon Ball Online, the antagonist Towa displays the ability to transform characters into giants; she first attempts this ability on Cui, but had not perfected it and causes him to shrink slightly instead. She perfects her ability shortly after and uses it on Dodoria, Zarbon, Recoome, Frog Ginyu, and several other Frieza Force soldiers.
In World Mission, Fused Zamasu's giant form is called Mutated (Grotesque).
This Half-Corrupted form of Zamasu debuts in Dokkan Battle.
It later appears in Xenoverse 2's Dragon Ball Super Pack 4 DLC. Fused Zamasu in this form appears only in the story mode. It appears in two cutscenes, one where Vegito fights Fused Zamasu, and a cinematic cutscene where Vegito eventually defuses and then is defeated by Super Saiyan Rage Future Trunks' Final Hope Slash. In the Extra Pack 4 DLC, Fused Zamasu in this form appears as a playable character for raid boss matches.
In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, Giant Form is a character card category which consists of various Giant Form users like Great Apes, Golden Great Ape, and Great Namekians. Cards in this category have a random chance of transforming into Giant characters which are impervious to damage and said character can attack up to three times per turn while transformed. The transformation ends after a certain amount of turns. Additionally, the Great Namekian form is referred to as Giant Form in Dokkan Battle. Some Giant characters appear as non-playable bosses like Agnilasa though they are susceptible to damage. Some Giant characters like first form Janemba are giant sized by default and are susceptible to damage even when player controlled. Hirudegarn also acts as a giant form for Tapion.
