Iron Giants (てつきょじん Tetsukyojin lit. Iron Giant), also known as Iron Man or MacGiants, are hulking metal brutes commonly found as enemies in nearly all of the games in the Final Fantasy series. Although the name may change slightly from game to game, the general look of the iron giant remains the same. They are tall metal monsters, often wielding large swords, that rely solely on physical attacks. They often come in two varieties--blue and red, though their exact nature and names vary.
