Battle Edit

Hill Gigas's special attack, Headbutt, deals high damage to the target, and when defeated, it has a 33% chance of casting Magnitude 8 as a final attack, which deals moderate Earth-elemental damage to the entire party.

Locke can steal a Gigas Glove from Hill Gigas, boosting the damage done by the wearer's physical attacks.

Strategy Edit

There are two ways to get around Hill Gigas's Magnitude 8 final attack: Have Celes cast Imp on it, preventing it from using magic, or have Gau use the Mu Rage, which casts Snare; this kills the Gigas instantly and prevents it from using its final attack.

One of the safest ways to steal from Hill Gigas is to utilize Edgar's Tools. When battling Gobbledygook, also found in Zozo, the player can use Noiseblaster to Confuse it, which prompts it to cast Invisible on the party, making them immune to physical attacks. Afterward, the player can fight Hill Gigas and have Edgar use Noiseblaster on him. He only has enough MP to cast Magnitude 8 three times, which he will do fairly quickly against himself while confused. The player can take their time with stealing, as Hill Gigas cannot hit the party physically if they are invisible, and Magnitude 8 will soon be rendered useless.
