Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Gigantos is a monster-in-a-box in Final Fantasy VI that can be found in both the Floating Continent and in the Soul Shrine.



Gigantos has great physical power, and it counters any attack against it with two physical blows followed by its special attack, Throat Jab, which does heavy damage and can likely KO a weaker character. Every other turn, it will perform three Throat Jabs in a row.


The easiest way to defeat Gigantos is to summon Phantom, granting the party Invisible status and causing all of the Gigantos's attacks to miss. Bio spells deal heavy damage to it and is also affected by Stop. Alternatively, the player can also cast Catoblepas or Lv. 5 Death for a quick Death.
