Iron Giant is an enemy is Final Fantasy VIII. It is a large armored monster that uses physical attacks and may appear in pairs.

Stats[edit | edit source]

In the original Japanese version, Iron Giant's HP formula is .

Battle[edit | edit source]

As the scan defines it, Iron Giant's attacks are limited to using its sword. The Grand Sword targets all party members. When it loses about 50% of its HP, the Iron Giant will use Mighty Guard, which applies Protect and Shell to it and its allies.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Iron Giant is asleep.

Blind/Pain helps make the fight easier; casting either spell, or junctioning them to ST-Atk-J, will blind the Iron Giant and makes his physical attacks miss, even the Grand Sword ability. Dispelling the Mighty Guard and casting Meltdown also helps. An Iron Giant can also be put to sleep and then attack with Limit Breaks, GFs and magic to not wake it up.

Quistis's Blue Magic, Degenerator, works well. Status-inflicting Limits like Quistis's Bad Breath and Irvine's Dark Shot may also be good to neuter the foes if Degenerator is not available.
