The giants in AOT have interesting character designs, as they sometimes look comical and not very intimidating. However this makes is all the more disturbing when they snatch your loved ones away and break their bodies in half with just a single bite. In other series with giant enemies, humans have mechs or other vehicles they can use to defeat the monsters.
