A mysterious wandering man from another world, searching after a legendary sword. Said to have traversed many worlds, he played a part in the battle at a known big bridge, and also seems to have participated in the war of the gods. Having fought across many dimensions against the Warriors of Light, his skills with a sword are absolute. Thought he has three sets of arms and appears quite ominous, he is easily swayed, often impressed by how fervent the heroes he comes across are.

StrategyEdit

The fights against Gilgamesh can be simplified into two things: managing his HP thresholds and disabling his elemental abilities. As his repertoire consists of hybrid attacks (i.e. a mix of physical and magic damage), it is recommended that all units are well equipped in terms of DEF and SPR, as well as elemental resistances. Tank units are a must as well as Healer units. Man Eater passives boost the damage done to Gilgamesh, as he is classified as a Human enemy.
