The Slug Gigant is one of the vehicles from Metal Slug 7 and Metal Slug XX.

Information

The Future Rebels brought two, giant, mechanical monsters to the present. The vehicle the player rides on has a Vulcan in the front, two movable arms, and a shock wave attack that serve as bombs. The player is unable to get out of the Slug Gigant, so the player dies once the vehicle's health reaches zero.

In Metal Slug XX, the front Vulcan no longer shoots forwards. The bullets are now affected by gravity, similar to the Slug Mariner's shots.

When in Co-op, both players use the same Slug Gigant. Player 1 controls movement, the forward Vulcan and the claw-blaster cannon, and Player 2 controls the original Vulcan from 7 planted on its shoulder. Each time the Slug Gigant is damaged, both players switch control of the Slug by means of swapping controllers (P1 becomes P2 and vice versa).

At the last part of the mission, Allen appears with his own "Gigant" with different weapons. The boss is fought with the Slug Gigant.
