Gigas ff1

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. Gigas 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.
