Givanildo Vieira de Souza (born 25 July 1986), aka Hulk, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for F.C. Porto in the Portuguese first division. Mainly a right winger, he can also operate as a striker.

As his nickname suggests, Hulk's strength and stocky build are considered his foremost attributes, along with speed, acceleration, and a powerful shot. However, its origins stem from when he received the nickname Hulk due to his resemblance to actor Lou Ferrigno, who played the comic book hero.
