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.





Most of its attacks are physical, except for Hurricane, which reduces characters' HP to critical status. This skill can be used if the party successfully captures it.

This enemy will give up the Partisan if enough time is spent stealing from it. Despite the low success rate, this weapon is the only item available to be stolen and is the strongest spear obtainable at this point in the game.

The version summoned by Zephyrus can be controlled and forced to use the Blue Magic Aeroga.
