Giant equipment (きょじん, Kyojin?) is a recurring mid-rank type of armor in the Final Fantasy series. It usually appears as a helm, gloves, or axe and usually grants bonuses to Strength. Its presence in the series is small, and has diminished.
The Giant's Gloves are a mid-rank armor that casts Saber when used as an item. The Gigantaxe can be found in the Whisperwind Cove and grants the wielder a bonus of 4 to Strength, while reducing Intelligence for the same value.
The Great Sword was originally known as the Giant Sword, and was renamed to the Claymore in the Origins release, and later renamed again in the Dawn of Souls version, remaining in the latest version, the 20th Anniversary release. It deals additional damage to Giant-type enemies.
The Giant's Helm and Giant Gloves can be obtained by the time the player reaches Mysidia. The Gigantaxe was added in the 20th Anniversary edition, being Guy's ultimate weapon, obtainable in the Arcane Labyrinth side quest.
The Giant's Gloves can be dropped by monsters, such as the Mad Ogre. The Gigant Axe was added in the Advance version, and is the strongest axe, which may poison the enemy on hit, and grants the wielder a bonus to Strength. It is obtainable in the Lunar Ruins.
Giant's Gloves returns in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV. It can be equipped by Cecil and Cid while Edge is initially equipped with it. Another one can be found in the Lower Section of the Tower of Babil. It can also be dropped by Ogre found in the Upper Section of the Tower of Babil. It has a defense of 10 and evasion of -1 with a bonus of +10 Strength & Stamina while provides protection against Mini.

Non-Final Fantasy guest appearancesEdit
Seiken Densetsu 3Edit
Giant equipment is a series of penultimate weapons for several classes and characters for Dark paths. They are described to have been made by fearsome and violent giants who attempted to invade the Mana Holyland in ages past.
The Gigas Glove is the ultimate weapon for the Dark-most class of Kevin, the Dervish. It is a crude reptile/dragon leather glove, with a rectangular strap of worn lumber placed at its knuckles. Made to recapture the dreaded strength of giants with arcane methods, it allows one to toss gales and whirlwinds with every punch.
The Giant's Spear is the ultimate weapon for the Dark-most class of Riesz, the Fenrir Knight. It is a spear with a crescent blade evenly curved towards its user, with its leaf-shaped blade tip ending with a small forked notch.
The Gigas Flail is the ultimate weapon for the Light Dark class of Charlotte, the Sage. It is a cobalt blue flailing mace with its mauling head a monolithic crudely molded shimmering metallic rock. Made to recapture the strength of the giants, it is ultimately impossible to wield, unless one who has learned and practiced great wisdom can magically move its mystical gems embedded into its head, granting its use.
The Juggernaut is the ultimate weapon for the Dark-most class of Charlotte, the Evil Shaman. It is an enormous steel-molded flail chained with gold rings. Its mauling head is crowned with a horizontally placed spiked disc with a spike protruding through its center. It is described to have been treasured by the giants, said to be fashioned in the shape of the evil wheel that drags all into chaos in their religion.
