Ganymede is an enemy in Final Fantasy XV fought in the Fociaugh Hollow maze and during the Cruel Giants of Duscae hunt.

BestiaryEdit

Alpha
An iron giant boasting a unique hue and powerful abilities. Despite the impressive bounty on its armored head, this particular variant is so rare that hunters have only undertaken a single unsuccessful campaign to track it down near the Disc of Cauthess.
Size: 18.93 ft. Weight: 9.64 t
Beta
This giant lurks deep inside Fociaugh Hollow. Hunters have launched an investigation to determine whether the Ganymede bears any relation to the iron giant spotted around the Disc of Cauthess, but they have yet to reach a definitive conclusion.

BattleEdit

Ganymede uses physical attacks. They are like iron giants but stronger, able to pick up the player in their fist and squeeze, and to conjure a gravity sphere that sucks the party towards itself while simultaneously dealing damage. Attacking the giant's hand as it prepares for a gravity attack will cancel it and possibly topple the giant. They swipe their colossal swords in a wide arc dealing damage in front of them, and can slam their sword to the ground, dealing damage to everything around the impact zone. When Vulnerable, Ganymedes kneel and momentarily stop attacking.

They are weak to greatswords, shields and Light. They are strong and the player must defeat three of them for a hunt. If the hunt battle continues until the day breaks the giants start to take damage from sunlight. Ganymedes can be poisoned.

Aranea has a chance to join in on the hunt.

StrategyEdit

When met in Zegnautus Keep, it is best to simply eject them with Alterna.

Three of the beasts are faced in a Rank 9 hunt. The player can temporarily weaken them with Prompto's Starshell. Gladiolus's Impulse can deal great damage in a range.

Royal arms can be used to bypass the giants' strong defense, such as the Blade of the Mystic and the Trident of the Oracle that have powerful warp-strikes. Armiger and Armiger Unleashed are useful whenever available. Ring of the Lucii's Holy can also be of help.
