Giganthias was first established by Japanese ichthyologist Masao Katayama in 1954 based on two specimens of the type species Giganthias immaculatus recovered from the island of Izu Ōshima in Japan. Katayama initially placed the species in a separate subfamily, Giganthiinae, but it is now accepted to be under the subfamily Anthiinae of the family Serranidae.
Giganthias are characterized by nine spines on the dorsal fin. The third dorsal spine and the pelvic spines have serrated tips. The lateral line is very highly arched and a supplementary maxillary is present.
