The Gigan Octopus is a flying enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found on the beaches of all continents, once the player has access to the Blue Narciss. One of the first places the player may encounter it is on the shores of Esto Gaza or on the Forgotten Continent archipelago.
With the exception of Blizzaga, its attacks are fairly weak, and its HP is rather low for such an EXP treasure trove. If Quina has not yet obtained the Blue Magic spell Mighty Guard, the Gigan Octopus can be eaten to learn the skill.
