Why is this Brute so damn big?

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWUUdi6a3fE]Halo 4 Prologue[/url] 2:22 shows chief manhandling a giant Brute.... Obviously in game they weren't that big, but did 343i take the size of that brute from canon/legends? I remember reading somewhere that the average Brute size was 14 feet tall... Seems about right in that video, though I find it hard to believe that humanity fought apes that big. I don't remember which book, but there was a part where John took on a Brute his size and barely won, perhaps chieftains are just abnormally huge?

  • Yeah I'm happy they're on the right path to getting the Elites to look beast again.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] grey101 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] PISTOLSQUIRREL Makes me happy they made the Brute as it should be. I wish Didact was portrayed as tall as he is in canon, though.[/quote] I haven't seen anybody here work out how tall he is in the game his height should be around feet. If it's even close to that i will be happy, but it is his cutscene height that is canon in which he looks just about that size.[/quote] The thing that kind of bothers me is the fact that in the cutscene in Forerunner, Chief is maybe half or a little over half Didact's size. If Didact is around 15/16 feet in size, Chief shouldn't be that tall compared to him. I'm not entirely sure.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CoolCJ24 I was happy they made the Brute the right size in the prologue; at a rough comparison the Brute looks about 12 feet, practically Hunter size. Of course, it is a Chieftain so it's more plausible but still pretty huge for a Brute. Then again there was that elite called Xytan in GoO who was like 10 feet or something.[/quote] 11. The tallest elite ever.

  • They are normally really tall. Chief is like 7 ft and that guy is about 4 above him, so 11 makes sense. The average for Brutes is 9', but you must consider that the "average" for people is like 5'7". It takes in all the ranges.

  • Brutes are generally 9 feet tall but chieftains are taller due to hormonal changes with being the top dog. So it is only 10 feet if 11 which isn't out of the normal.

  • The Average size of a brute is 9 feet seeing as that is a chieftain he might be around 11 or so, which is within range. I am glad 343I finally did the sizes correctly so people understand how massive these aliens are to us. Next time you go to a department store (home depot) look for that giant measuring stick they normally have near the entrance and look up at 16 feet. that is about how tall the Didact is.
