Gigaflare (ギガフレア, Giga Furea?), also known as Giga Flare, is a recurring attack in the Final Fantasy series. It is an upgraded form of Megaflare, and does massive non-elemental damage to all targets. As with Megaflare, it is most often used by Bahamut or very strong bosses.

Final Fantasy VEdit

In addition to Mega Flare, the boss Twintania uses Giga Flare as his most powerful move. Unlike many other bosses, Twintania must charge Giga Flare. During the time that he is charging it, he is vulnerable to many instant death attacks and petrification. In the GBA release, the superbosses Archeodemon and Enuo can also use Giga Flare.

The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a King Behemoth.

Neo Bahamut uses Giga Flare when summoned into battle. It has a power of 80 and does non-elemental damage to all enemies, ignoring magic defense.
