Amano Iron Giant FFII
Though it looks to be a giant encased in armor, the Iron Giant is in fact a machine made with lost technology. With its great blade it wreaks havoc upon all within range and no one living knows why it fights...

Iron Giant (てつきょじん, Tetsukyojin?, lit. Iron Giant), also known as Iron Man, is a hulking metal brute commonly found as an enemy in nearly all of the games in the Final Fantasy series. Although the name may change slightly from game to game, the physical appearance of iron giants usually remains roughly the same. They are tall metal monsters, often wielding large swords, that rely solely on physical attacks. They often are blue-colored, with stronger versions in red.

The Iron Giant first appeared as a rare encounter in the Final Fantasy II final dungeon.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IIEdit

II

Ffiiironman psp

The first appearance of the Iron Giant (known as Iron Man in the Dark Shadow Over Palakia translation). The Iron Giant is a very rare random encounter, similar to Warmech, on the higher levels of Pandaemonium.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

IV

FF4PSP Iron Giant

In the original release of Final Fantasy IV there were no Iron Giant enemies, however in re-releases two enemies have gone by that name.

The Japanese exclusive Easy Type version renamed some enemies, and the Steel Golem enemy was renamed Tetsu Kyojin (てつきょじん?), the Japanese name for the Iron Giant. The name changes for this version did not carry over to any other version.

In the Advance release a new enemy was introduced under the name Iron Giant. Iron Giant is a blue palette-swap of the giant metal Armor Construct enemies. Unlike other incarnations of Iron Giant, this appearance features a flamethrower rather than a sword. It is fought in the Lunar Ruins.
