StatsEdit

Paradigm PackEdit

A level 35 Garganzola is a good source for infusion of the Auto-Protect passive ability. Garganzola has other good infusible auto-abilities also, like the Quick Stagger that allows the Supersonic Chocobo Racing ability, but other monsters gain these abilities earlier in their development.

EtymologyEdit

Garganzola is likely a portmanteau of Gorgonzola and gargantuan. Gorgonzola is a type of blue cheese. Gargantuan, in modern times, means gigantic. Gargantuan is based on the the fictional king Garguantua, who was portrayed as having gigantic physical and intellectual appetites. The satire Gargantua and Pantagruel was written by François Rabelais, considered a great writer for his works of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, and bawdy jokes and songs.
