|Final Fantasy II Boss|
The Fire Gigas, also known as the F. Gigas and the R.Giant, is a monster from Final Fantasy II. It serves as one of the bosses in the Mysidian Tower, guarding the spell Ultima. Firion and his allies must defeat it on their way up the tower. It later appears as a random encounter in Pandaemonium's secret room.
Fire Gigas, as the first of three similar creatures encountered as the party ascends the Mysidian Tower, is the easiest boss fight in the dungeon. Despite being categorized elementally, still prefers physical bombardment to magical assaults. It can cast Fire 16 on the party, and may occasionally single out one character to cast Boulders 9 on, but the main concern will be his constant physical attacks.
The party should cast Blink as soon as the fight begins, and use Protect. Mages will be busy by curing the wounded and casting Blizzard. The Fire Gigas is weak to the Sleep spell. The party can equip an Ogrekiller to maximize damage from physical blows, or Ice-type weaponry to exploit his elemental weakness.
Fire Gigas from Final Fantasy II appears as an enemy in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.
Gigas is a popular term for races of giants in fantasy games. Gigas is a Greek word meaning "giant," originally used to describe the race of Gigantes in Greek mythology and is used in the scientific name, as the specific epithet, of hundreds of species of animals and dozens of plant species to denote their size.
