In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game's Spelljammer setting, the giff is a monstrous humanoid. A giff is a cross between a human and a hippopotamus in appearance.

A giff is usually lawful neutral in alignment. They are a disciplined, militaristic race who live as mercenaries in the strange culture of those who travel between stars and planets. They adore war and battle, and are particularly fascinated with firearms of all types - even in situations where such weapons can be potentially lethal to their users.
