A cyclops. Art by Alex Horley-Orlandelli.
Much like giants, cyclopes are enormous bipedal creatures very similar to humans in form. What distinguishes cyclopes is the large, single eye in the center of their foreheads. They are few in number and possess great size and power. They are brute, solitary creatures who live in desolate mountains and swamps.

The first card to bear the creature type was Ekundu Cyclops in Mirage. The subtype Cyclops was obsoleted in Sixth Edition but reinstated in the Grand Creature Type Update. Inbetween cards like Tar Pit Warrior, Hulking Cyclops and Bloodshot Cyclops had the subtype Giant. Cyclopses appear in red, black and green. They are known to exist on Alara, Dominaria, Ravnica and especially on the Greek-inspired Theros.

An Eye Gouge is lethal to cyclopses.
