The Flood Gigas is an enemy in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding versions of the original Final Fantasy. While its name implies that it is part of the same family as the Hill Gigas and its ilk, the Flood Gigas' appearance shows that it is of the same family as the Gigas Worm. The Flood Gigas is a relatively rare enemy, found in the deepest levels (B21 onwards) of the Whisperwind Cove in the levels resembling the Marsh Cave.
