Gigagash is a recurring, group-targeting sword skill in the Dragon Quest series.

The technique first appeared in the manga Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken as an attack used by the dragon knight Baran, and was later included in the main series starting with Dragon Quest VIII.


Gigagash is an even more powerful version of the Gigaslash skill, and requires a large skill point investment before it can be used. The user channels their power through both arms instead of their prime laterality. Furthermore, the power radiating from the ethereal blades shines more brilliantly than before.


Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The Hero can learn Gigagash as a sword technique after fully investing 100 skill points into both the "Sword" and "Courage" skills, replacing Gigaslash. Despite the requirements, the skill can be used with any weapon equipped, and even bare-handed.

Damage is calculated as level+222~282, capping at level 47 for a maximum range of 271~331.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

Gigagash (DS)
MP 30
Effect Hits a single group of enemies with Light damage (as done by the Zap line of spells in other games)
Flavor text Supreme technique that destroys a group of enemies.

To use Gigagash, a character must both equip a sword and be carrying Swordcraft in Summary: the book awarded by the level 40 Sword Skill quest. Its damage output is a base of 185~335 and a maximum range of 445~595, and the caveat about its usability applies with even greater force. Damage improves as the user's magical might and strength increase.

Dragon Quest XI[edit]

The Hero will learn the skill for 36 points through his Swordmastery skill tree. It costs a massive 32 MP to use, but deals up to 390~430 lightning damage to all enemies.

Dragon Quest Swords[edit]
