There are several known variations of stars, including Giants, Supergiants, Wolf-Rayet... These stars are essentially the same as their Main Sequence counterparts, with less common values. For instance a K Giant is an unusually big K Main Sequence star.
Wolf-Rayet stars are O class stars that are at the end of their life, which dramatically changes their size and light output.
