Attack by bringing down a burst of white-hot energy.
—Description, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Gigaflare (ギガフレア, Gigafurea?), 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.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VEdit

V 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.

EtymologyEdit

Giga is a unit prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of a (short-form) billion (109 or 1,000,000,000). It has the symbol G.

A flare is a pyrotechnical phenomenon that produces intense amounts of heat and energy that does not result in an explosion (an immediate release of energy).
