Gigas (ギガース, Gigāsu), also known as Giant, are a recurring type of enemy in the Final Fantasy series. Contrary to the mechanical Iron Giant and mineral-created Golems, Gigas are biological humanoids, but are still impressively strong. Common variants are the Hill Gigas and the Glasya Labolas. Gigases have a combination of powerful physical attacks and strong magic, making them very dangerous enemies.

Another common enemy is the Gigas Worm, but it is not a gigas-type enemy and is a Worm instead. Some other enemies are given the "gigas" moniker as well without actually being gigas-types.
