BattleEdit

Gigas uses two physical attacks, Moon Wars and Squash. His first attack inflicts non-elemental damage to one party member. It can use it up to three times instead of Quake3 when his MP is lower that 68. Squash can be used as a counter against magical damage up to three times once its HP drops to HP Critical status. It can also use the powerful Quake3 spell, which can inflict up to 1500–3000 damage.

Gigas has the rare Gigas Armlet to steal, and also drops the extremely rare Earth Mallet, which the player can only obtain from the Gigas as long as they did not steal the Gigas Armlet first.

The chance for Earth Mallet to be dropped increases if Gigas casts Quake3 at least once in battle, but stealing a Gigas Armlet reduces it to 0% regardless if Gigas casts Quake3 beforehand or not.

StrategyEdit

The player can use Frog Song to inflict Sleep, then use L4 Suicide to reduce Gigas's HP low enough that the next party member can finish it off.
