The Gargantua is a boss in the Advance, Android, iOS and Steam versions of Final Fantasy VI.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Gargantua uses Quake, but because of its nonexistent Magic Power, it does nearly no damage; however, its physical attack is powerful. Its special attack Evil Eye inflicts Slow on a party member.

Unlike most bosses in the Dragons' Den, Gargantua, Earth Eater, Malboro Menace , Dark Behemoth and Abyss Worm don't drop any ultimate weapons, and they will respawn every time player enters their area. However, Gargantua can give the valuable relic Growth Egg when defeated.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Bio, Flare, and Ultima spells work well against it.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Gargantuan, in modern times, means gigantic. Gargantuan is based on the the fictional king Garguantua, who was portrayed as having gigantic physical and intellectual appetites. The satire Gargantua and Pantagruel was written by François Rabelais, considered a great writer for his works of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, and bawdy jokes and songs.
