Unit

noun; zero derivation
An animal or person that is extremely massive in size compared to others of its species.
 
To distinguish beings of extreme size, they are called “units” or “absolute units” to show this great size, especially in relation to other animals of the same species. The animal can be a “unit” if it is large in any way, including length, height, volume, mass, etc. that would fulfill that condition.
Etymology : The word is converted from “unit,” meaning a measurement of something, and in being used in the phrase “absolute unit” can be related to the meaning of scientific absolute units that are derived from scientific laws. This conversion to mean something very large can be due to the amount of units used to measure such a large thing would be very large, and therefore it can be considered its own unit of measurement, such as measuring the volume of the Sun by how many Earths can fit inside of it.
