The Big Guys (ビッグガイズ, "Biggugaizu") is the twenty-one spirits of Bill Burton and a former football team that now serves under him as his Guardian Ghosts.


They are the twenty-one members of Bill Burton's former football team called the "The Big Guys". When Bill refused to give an autograph, a fan cuts the brakes of their bus killing all of them but Bill in an accident. Their spirits continued to follow Bill around after the accident as if they were still a football team.[3]
