Are giant bettas and king bettas the same?

Hiya! My boy Douglas who I got at Petco is a king male.. But I've been looking around and I'm also hearing about giant bettas. Are they the same thing? Thanks!(:

Giant bettas are 4 inches long (body) or a bit longer.

"King" bettas, are just half giants. So about 2-3 inches long. The term 'King betta' was created by petco, as a short way of saying 'half giant', and to make them seem more special to sell more.

Also, 'King' can also refer to a certain type of crowntails, so Petco was dumb picking the name King for Half Giants.
