Gigas (ギガース, Gigāsu?), also known as Giant, are a recurring type of enemy in the Final Fantasy series. Contrary to the mechanical Iron Giant and mineral-created Golems, Gigas are biological humanoids, but are still impressively strong. Common variants are the Hill Gigas and the Glasya Labolas. Gigases have a combination of powerful physical attacks and strong magic, making them very dangerous enemies.
Another common enemy is the Gigas Worm, but it is not a gigas-type enemy and is a Worm instead. Some other enemies are given the "gigas" moniker as well without actually being gigas-types.
Many gigas-type enemies in the game have elemental affinities. Their ranks include the Hill Gigas, Ice Gigas, Fire Gigas, Flare Gigas, and Elm Gigas. There is also the Flood Gigas, but it is a Worm-type enemy.
The Hill Gigas is the base type of gigas. In the Mysidian Tower, the Fire Gigas, Ice Gigas, and Thunder Gigas are bosses that bar the path further up the tower. The Glasya Labolas appears in the Unknown Palace.
The Hill Gigas is accompanied by the Gigantos and the Glasya Labolas. The Gargantua is a boss in the Advance release. A fourth variation was coded in to the game but excluded, the Colossus. Gigas in this game use powerful physical attacks, and Earth-elemental magic.
It is also interesting to note that Maduin's sprite is very similar to the sprite of the Gigas in Final Fantasy V. However, Maduin is never directly stated to be a gigas.
The Blood Gigas is an enemy in the giant genus. Other giant-type enemies are the Headless, Dullahan, Wendigo, Striker, and Bune. The Daedalus is a boss, and Overlord is a mark. Ancbolder, Wendice, Anchag, Bluesang, and
Avenger are rare enemies.
