A Macro Furry is simply a giant furry (meaning a 50' fox, not a 50' person who uses this newsgroup. To the best of our knowledge the latter does not exist.) A Macrophile is someone who enjoys fantasising about relationships with Macro Furries. Furry Macrophilia is basically the furry equivalent of the Giantess phenomenon in the 'mundane' realm, except that Macro Furries tend not to be so exclusively female, nor so exclusively sexual.

Macro Furry artwork encompasses everything from harmless, funny, G-rated work, to scenes of mass carnage and overt sexuality. At the mass-destruction end of the spectrum, the archetypal Macro Furry is probably Godzilla.
