- "An unwieldy spear made to fight defensive foes."
- ―Description, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
The Giant Slayer is a long spear with a massive blade head at the tip of the handle. The handle is brown, and has a smaller blade head act as the pommel.
It grants the second highest Attack bonus among Matt's swords (only being bested by the Soul Eater), however, this comes at the expense of a large Accuracy penalty, and a smaller one on Evade. As such, the weapon is very powerful offensively, but makes it harder for Matt to hit his targets; its generally a good idea to use the Giant Slayer along with Accuracy buffing equipment (like the Spelunking Hat or the Target Badge), this will help nullify its penalties to make full use of its high Attack. The Giant Slayer has more than just obscene Attack though, as it not only ignores defensive buffs with Weapon-elemental attacks, but also counters with its Normal Attack (which, of course, will ignore defensive buffs). As such, the Giant Slayer will not only dish out heavy damage with day-to-day attacking, but also retaliate against foes with a mighty blow regardless of their defenses.
The Giant Slayer is considered one of Matt's best weapons, its main competitor being the Soul Eater, which provides even higher Attack at the cost of large defensive penalties. Overall the Giant Slayer can be considered the safer choice between the two, while the Soul Eater grants both higher risk and higher reward. The non-elemental Giant Slayer does have a small edge over the Dark-elemental Soul Eater in the endgame areas, which have plenty of Dark-resistant foes.
