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.
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.
When Bahamut is fought in Storms of Fate, when he falls to 10% of his HP he uses Gigaflare. In the subsequent Wyrmking Descends encounter, he uses Gigaflare much sooner.
Jet Bahamut, the final boss, is able to use Gigaflare.
Giga Flare is a powerful area of effect attack used by the Sage. This move is learned from the Lotus Mace for 300 AP and costs 40 MP to cast. It has a range of 3 and a Magic Power of 65, cannot be reflected, and is stealable through the ability Steal: Ability. Though it cannot be reflected, it can be countered with Return Magic, and MP can be absorbed from it through Absorb MP.
