The Flare Gigas is an enemy in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding remakes of the original Final Fantasy. It is found very rarely in the deepest lava-filled levels of the Whisperwind Cove in the Dawn of Souls version, and the Labyrinth of Time in the 20th Anniversary Edition. It is the strongest member of the Gigas brotherhood.
As implied by its name, the Flare Gigas has no particular elemental affinity, and the party should just use its strongest attacks to defeat it.
[view·edit·purge]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.
