We'll stop this monstrosity. The fate of the world depends on it!

The Giant of Babil (バブイルの巨人, Babuiru no Kyojin?), also known as the Giant of Bab-Il or Babel, is a machine of tremendous power in Final Fantasy IV and is so large it actually serves as a dungeon.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
FF4 PSP Giant of Babil Field

Created by Zemus and other radical Lunarians, its purpose is to destroy the human race on Earth so the Lunarians can colonize the planet. The other Lunarians rejected this design and sealed the Giant in the Lunar Subterrane.

Through Golbez, Zemus gathered the eight Crystals at the Tower of Babil to transport the Giant to Earth. It is brought to the planet and unleashes an attack, but a pincer attack from the forces of the Overworld and Underworld stall it. Cecil Harvey, Fusoya and their allies are able to penetrate into the Giant and destroy its CPU. Afterward, the Giant is immobilized and self-destructs.

DS VersionEdit

In the DS remake, after beating the game once, returning to the area where Cecil fought the four Elemental Archfiends allows for a new boss battle with one of the game's superbosses, Geryon. A prototype of the giant, Proto-Babil, appears as a superboss in the game as well. It is only fought on a second or third play-through with the player carrying Dark Matter, stolen from Zeromus, and using it on the stone face on the Red Moon. Proto-Babil is considered the most powerful boss in the game.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

In Final Fantasy IV The Complete Collection, a new post-game boss called Lost Babil is added to The After Years. The player must talk to Challengingway in the secret location on the True Moon.

To face this boss, the player must pay him a fee of 500,000 Gil and Challengingway will offer the player a reward consisting of three Silver Apples and two Soma Drops if they defeat Lost Babil. The player must create three parties to fight three boss battles; one against Lost Babil's torso, and another against his head; the last encounter is against the Lost Babil's CPU, which has six nodes accompanying it.

LocationsEdit

Geryon prompt giant of babil ios

One of the two places where Geryon can be fought.

Inner Stair

It is accessible from the exit back in the giant's inner passage, just after the save point. Midway, the four elemental archfiends have been resurrected and attempt to slay the party, only to be defeated again. To fight Geryon, the player may prompt the very same spot after this battle, which says that the four fiends' malice remains anchored to it. Geryon may then be fought multiple times.

Giant's Control Core

The control core is accessible from the exit back in the giant's Inner Stair. It is the heart of the giant, and is the final room of the dungeon. The party must take out the CPU and the Attack and Defense Nodes to shut down the giant. Afterwards, Golbez appears and Fusoya brings the enthralled Golbez back to his senses. Golbez then reveals his and Cecil's origins and why Zemus was able to control him. Fusoya and Golbez then leave the group, heading for the Lunar Subterrane to finish off Zemus. As the giant is collapsing, a now-free Kain shows them to the exit.
