Iron Giant is an enemy is Final Fantasy VIII. As the scan defines it, Iron Giant's attacks is limited to using its sword. The Grand Sword attack targets all party members. When it loses about 50% of its HP, the Iron Giant will use Mighty Guard, which casts Protect and Shell to it and its accompanying monsters.

Blind/Pain helps make the fight much easier; casting either spell or junctioning them to ST-Atk-J will blind the Iron Giant and makes his physical attacks miss, even the Grand Sword ability. Dispelling the Mighty Guard and casting Meltdown also help.

Quistis's Blue Magic, Degenerator, works well.
