Wolframiter-type0-psp

Red Giant (ウルフラマイター, Urufuramaitā?, lit. Wolframiter), also known as Wolframiter, Gemini, and Wolfmeister, is a recurring enemy in the series. It is a member of the Iron Giant family.

The Red Giant has seen a variety of names in its appearances. Its Japanese name is "Wolframiter": "Wolframite" with the "er" word-ending. In its original appearance in Final Fantasy VII the name was erroneously localized as "Wolfmeister" (would would be written ウルフマイスター (Urufumaisutā?) in Japanese).

In its other appearances no attempt has been made to keep the original Japanese meaning. Its common name "Red Giant" originating in Final Fantasy VIII refers to its status as a red version of the Iron Giant.

Its third name in three appearances, "Red Giant" wouldn't apply in Final Fantasy X where the enemy appeared as a pair of red and blue enemies, so they were named Gemini referencing that they were a pair. In Final Fantasy X-2 only one of the pair returns losing this context.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Armored fiend ffiv ios

The Armored Fiend is not an official Red Giant appearance. Known in Japanese as "Demon Soldier" (まじんへい, Majin-hei?), it is a red palette-swap of the Armor Construct, whose Japanese name is "Giant Soldier" (きょじんへい, Kyojin-hei?). When Armored Fiend was named "RedGiant" in its original appearance on SNES, the Giant Soldier enemies had no relation to the series's Iron Giants. However the Advance release introduced the standard Iron Giant as a blue Giant Soldier, thus retroactively making the Armored Fiend a true red Iron Giant.

This enemy is found in the Lunar Subterrane and the Lair of the Father. It has low attack power, but very high HP and defense. It counters any magical attack with Self Destruct.
