The Ziggurat Gigas, also known as Ultragigas, is an enemy in Final Fantasy V. Fairly rare in the lower segments of the tower, it is recommended to those seeking to complete their Bestiary in one playthrough to wander the upper floors of the Barrier Tower until encountering one, as this is the only chance the player will have to fight it.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Ziggurats were massive structures built in the ancient Mesopotamian valley and western Iranian plateau.
Gigas is a popular term for races of giants in fantasy games. Gigas is a Greek word meaning "giant," originally used to describe the race of Gigantes in Greek mythology and is used in the scientific name, as the specific epithet, of hundreds of species of animals and dozens of plant species to denote their size.
