In his quest to acquire the strongest of weapons, the notorious duelist Gilgamesh has long eluded authorities─until now. Forced to take a stand at the impassable Griffin Crossing, he has challenged you to a “duel.” Triumph, and he shall yield his latest prize. But should you fail, your weapons will be forfeit.In-game description
The party meets Gilgamesh on the first column of the bridge. At times he will turn players into frogs with Frog Song and have Enkidu attack them. He will turn players tiny with Tiny Song, causing them to take more damage and deal less damage. Occasionally he will use Bitter End, a conal AoE in front of him, and Pradamante, targeting players at random. His Rocket Punch confuses players and causes them to attack party members. When on low health, Gilgamesh will use Grovel, pretending to give up only to put a bomb in his place and then flee to the second column.
In-between the two columns lies enemies that will attack the party.
At the Second Column the party sees an arena full of green chickens and Gilgamesh at full health. Not much has changed, but around the arena are whirlwind slashes that players have to avoid. Gilgamesh can target a party member and attack them with Giga Jump.

Behind the scenes
While Gilgamesh is regularly fought on a bridge, the Griffin Crossing is specifically modeled after the Big Bridge of Final Fantasy V.
Frog Song, Tiny Song, Rocket Punch and Jump are attacks introduced to Gilgamesh in Final Fantasy V. Bitter End is an ability used by Gilgamesh in Final Fantasy XII. Whirlwind Slash is one of Gilgamesh' attacks in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.
