The Giga Golem is a boss encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 in Wave 13, at the end of the frozen beach/tundra. In Epic Battle Fantasy 5, it appears in the Data Bunker as an optional boss.

Appearance

The Giga Golem is a massive humanoid made out of gray and black stone. Its left side is gray while the right side is black, save for its legs and "face," which are completely black. Its left arm is a large, club-like appendage dotted with spiky blue crystals, while its right arm is a crude sword dotted with glowing orange craters. A large crystal sits in the center of its body, switching between red and blue depending on the Giga Golem's current element.

The EBF5 bestiary claims that the Giga Golem was formed when a fire and ice golem fused together.

Overview

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Giga Golem is capable of delivering devastating physical attacks, but it can also perform some magic spells, such as a burst of Fire and a gust of Ice-elemental wind. Additionally, it can summon Balls and switch its element between Fire and Ice to alter some of its weaknesses and resistances, thus forcing players to change their strategy accordingly.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Giga Golem returns as the boss of the Data Bunker's first EBF2 simulation. Its attributes are mostly similar to its previous appearance, but it lost its ability to hit both players with an earthquake and summons Eaters instead of Bits. Many of its attacks can debuff the party's stats, save for Blizzard, which has a massive Freeze chance instead. Interestingly, its forms also have different offensive focuses; its Ice form has a stronger physical attack and its Fire form has a more powerful spell.

Its elemental attributes were expanded to account for the greater diversity of elements in the game compared to EBF2; its consistent Bomb weakness was reduced, but its Ice form now takes extra damage from Earth and Dark in addition to its main Fire weakness. When it changes form, it becomes weak to Water, Holy, and especially Ice.

Battle Logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

  • Sealed → Arm Crush (1/2), Sword Strike (1/2);
  • Every 3rd turn;
    • If on Fire Form → Blizzard;
    • Otherwise → Fire Rain;
  • Otherwise → Arm Crush (1/2), Sword Strike (1/2).


The Giga Golem switches forms whenever it uses Blizzard/Fire Rain.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Action

  • If Syphoned or Berserked → Arm Crush (1/2), Sword Strike (1/2);
  • Every 3rd turn;
    • If on Fire Form → Blizzard;
    • Otherwise → Fire Rain;
  • Otherwise → Arm Crush (1/2), Sword Strike (1/2).

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • If HP% is lower than Blood Counter → 100%;
    • If Syphoned → Arm Crush (1/2), Sword Strike (1/2);
    • Otherwise;
      • If on Fire Form → Blizzard;
      • Otherwise → Fire Rain.

* Blood Counter starts at 80 and gets reduced by 20 every time the Giga Golem counters.


Additionally, like all the Classic foes, the Giga Golem ignores the Lovable status on players.

The Giga Golem switches forms whenever it uses Blizzard/Fire Rain.

Strategy

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

If you haven't already done so, make sure to Scan both of the Giga Golem's forms to help keep track of its weaknesses. Some useful skills to have before the battle include:

  • Matt: Aerial Support, Secret Weapon, Counter, Arctic Wind, Sword Heart, Cat Tamer, Cat Warrior, Survivor, and any skills that increase his stats when hit with a powerful attack.
  • Natalie: Elementalist, Thunderclap, Magic Counter, Healer, Bunny!!!, Angel, and any skills that increase her stats when hit with a powerful attack.

For the actual battle, your first priority should be dealing with the Balls accompanying the boss. If it's a Fire Ball, you should target it for immediate elimination - its suicide attack will likely bring your characters into KO range for the Giga Golem. If it's an Ice Ball, you can probably get away with stunning it via Unleash or Thunderbolt; not only will you keep it contained by doing this, but you will prevent the Giga Golem from summoning more Balls when it switches elements.

For the Giga Golem itself, you should focus on keeping your defences up (using Defence buffs via Protect, Magic Defence buffs via Barrier, Regen status via Slime Bunny) as much as possible. The Golem performs two physical attacks before casting a magic attack and changing its element on its third turn. Although you can switch Matt's swords to keep up with the changes, a more efficient method is to constantly cast Airstrike, as both of the Giga Golem's forms are vulnerable to Bomb-element attacks, and you might pick off the Balls in the process.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Giga Golem's melee attacks are incredibly powerful, and also debuff your defences. Since they only hit once, the Morale status can be used to survive them; keeping Morale up also means you don't have to worry about its debuffs either. To guard against its multi-target magic, make both players as resistant to the Ice and Fire elements as possible; since you're only bringing in two players, 100% Fire and Ice immunity is relatively easy to achieve, especially if you have one male and one female. Immunity to the Freeze status is also extremely important for guarding against its Blizzard skill.

If Foe Remix is enabled, the Giga Golem will also summon Rock Eaters and Glacier Eaters. Keeping your defensive buffs up will be mandatory to mitigate the damage dealt from the turtles' attacks, reinforcing the importance of the Morale status.

The Syphon status can be used to block the Giga Golem's magic attacks, which also prevents it from switching forms (and summoning backup in Foe Remix).

Trivia

  • The Giga Golem inspired the design of the Golem enemies appearing in Epic Battle Fantasy 3.
  • The Crystal Golem boss in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 has many similarities to the Giga Golem. Both are the second boss of their respective games, both have spiky crystals on their bodies and oversized front limbs, and both can switch between multiple elements (with the change being indicated by the color of a large crystal in the middle of their bodies).
  • Heroes March, the theme that plays during the Giga Golem's battle, was reused in EBF3 as a normal battle theme.
