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 weaks havoc upon all within range and no one living knows why it fights...
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description.

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 come in two varieties--blue and red, though their exact nature and names vary.

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