Gigasword is a skill that infrequently appears throughout the Dragon Quest series. Similar to Gigaslash and Gigagash, it is an electrically charged sword strike, though it targets only one foe instead of a group.


Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

Gigasword first appears in Dragon Quest IV. In the remakes, the hero/heroine will learn the skill at level 50, dealing 250~300 zap type damage for 15 MP.

Note: though Gigasword is listed under the Hero/Heroine's spell list, it is not affected by Bounce.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

In the remakes of Dragon Quest V, the Conkuistador will attempt to slay a character with the skill, but it will always fail and fry the faerie.
