Move CardsEdit

Spectral Lancer (Jark Lancer)
Four long sheaths grow on the Spectral Armor spikes on Gigas' back, then he runs forward, grabs his opponent with them, and smashes them into a wall! Often, this wall appears out of nowhere and then vanishes after the Move finishes.
Magma Blaster
Gigas shot a beam of fire from his mouth at Chomp and Ace, but they dodged the attack and it hit the trees, sparking a forest fire.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

Gigas was a Tyrannosaurus altered by Seth to withstand being equipped with his new stronger version of Spectral Armor, which is permanently affixed to him.

He was first summoned by Gavro at Duke Dumas' chateau in The Wee Musketeers to help Anchiceratops battle the D-Team and Alpha Gang, quickly defeating Spiny with Spectral Lancer. He was hit by Sonic Blast and Green Impulse to little effect. After Anchiceratops was defeated and reclaimed by the D-Team, he charged the D-Team's dinos, but was recalled when Gavro realized that the Cosmos Stone wasn't there. Gigas was summoned later in The Haunted Hunt and battled the Alpha Gang at Vasasi Castle, nearly defeating Terry and Spiny, and successfully defeating Tank after blocking a dual attack from Ultimate Water and Ultimate Earth, but was worn down after Chomp and Ace joined the battle and eventually defeated when they combined their Ultimate Moves with Spiny's. However, he was reclaimed by Gavro and reappeared at the very end of the in the episode alongside Armatus and Maximus to attack the D-Team and Alpha Gang, but after a cliffhanger they were rescued by Jonathan.

In Bad Deal, he was summoned to head off the D-Team from chasing Seth after he stole their two Cosmos Stones, fighting Chomp and Ace, but accidentally lighting a forest fire with Magma Blaster, forcing both sides to retreat. He later helped fight the D-Team in the The Forest Fire Effect/The Search for the Last Cosmos Stone battle in the Stone Age over the Black Cosmos Stone, but was recalled when Brontikens accidentally caused the volcano to erupt. Later in The Search for the Last Cosmos Stone, he was summoned alongside Armatus and Maximus to attack the defecting Seth (who'd now stolen the Space Pirates' Cosmos Stones) and his Cryolophosaurus, but was easily battered around and was frozen in place by Blizzard Smash along with the others.

In Clash for the Cosmos Stones, they caught the D-Team and Alpha Gang in a surprise attack, Gigas defeating Chomp with Spectral Lancer; after merging the Cosmos Stones, they were supercharged by the Dark Pterosaur. In Fate of the Cosmos, they began attacking the city with their Spectral Moves, Gigas driving the D-Team and Alpha Gang away from the wrecked D-Lab. They were later called into the Dark Pterosaur to attack the Backlander; after the Pterosaur began protecting the ship and Maximus and Armatus were defeated, Gigas and Terry charged and defeated each other with Spectral Lancer and Ultimate Fire. What happened to his card afterwards is unclear, but it was probably reclaimed by the D-Team/Alpha Gang.

TriviaEdit

  • In the dub, when he is first named by Gavro, he is called "Gigasaurus", likely by mistake.
  • Gigas's name likely came from the species "Manospondylus gigas", the name given to a theropod that turned out to be the same as Tyrannosaurus, but had been named earlier, meaning "M. gigas" should have had priority over T. rex. However, due to the incomplete nature of its fossils, and the fact that it was never mentioned in scientific documents since before 1899, "M. gigas" was deemed invalid.
  • In his first few dub appearances (72-75), Gigas has a unique roar that sounded like a pitched version of Terry's. Starting in episode 76, however, it is changed to the roar shared by later Saurophaganax appearances, Torvosaurus, Afrovenator, and Rajasaurus.
