Skyrim Giant Kills Dragon
So, while playing Skyrim today I came upon a rather amusing occurrence; a Giant killed a dragon for me. Sweet of him, right? I had just traveled to Dawnstar and was speaking to some traders about a sidequest. During the conversation, I idly noted a Giant strolling around the background and wondered why it was on the move. I forgot about it when a dragon flew overhead, thoughts of the Giant lost in my swearing and frantic clicking to exit the speech menu.
As my companion and I chased after it, I was surprised to see it landing away from us and apparently tackling another foe. Then I remembered the Giant. Sure enough, I crested the hill to see this:
Both of them ignored me as the Giant clubbed the flame-spewing beast. I thought the dragon would take out a single Giant for sure, but they both stood strong. Eventually the dragon took off and started carpet-bombing the area.
The dragon hit its target on a sweep through...
And then nearly barbecued me on the way past. Sometimes, standing by and watching two legendary creatures destroy each other is just so hard.
I figured things were all but over for the Giant as the dragon wheeled around and landed again. It had gotten in many more hits than the Giant, but as I've mentioned elsewhere, I have good reason to believe that Giants are the strongest monsters in the game.
Still, I was surprised when the Giant delivered the final blow. The dragon roared and fell to the snow, defeated, with the Giant still at approximately 60% health.
The Giant was simply too awesome to bother watching it die and went off to club some random passerby to death. I took the opportunity to claim the dragon's soul and loot, and then make my escape. Thanks, Giant! I'm sorry I keep shooting your mammoths.
Check out that swagger in the background. The Giant knows who's the real boss around Skyrim.
